Skip to comments.Sarah Palin Concerned Romney and the GOP Elite Donít Have the Guts to Fight

Appearing on Mondays Hannity, Sarah Palin minced no words by saying nothing was off the table when it comes to vetting Barack Obama.
There was a group that wanted to revisit Obamas past associations, including Reverend Jeremiah Wright, the radical Marxist preacher whose church Obama sat in for 20 years, and now claims was pressured to stay quiet about Obama.
Mitt Romney, Speaker of the House John Boehner, and many other GOP establishment leaders have chastised those who would talk about Wright. Never mind the democrats are already raising money off this issue.
As Sarah notes, nothing can be left off the table. Everything must be fair game. The democrats certainly show no such restraint. With democrats, the candidates, the candidates children, friends, supporters, and so on are fair game. Barack Obama has used his Chicago thug political tactics successfully for years. The only way to beat a guy like this is to go all in.
No one is going to respect Romney or the GOP because they played nice. There are no extra points for playing nice. We are at war for the very existence of America, and we need tough, strong leadership that doesnt flinch in battle.
Its noted that Sarah wasnt happy when McCain campaign manager Steve Schmidt stopped her from vetting Obama in 2008. Not satisfied with McCains defective campaign team, this is when Sarah says she went rogue.
In case you missed it, Stacy Drake covered a Hannity special that featured Stephen K Bannon talking about the failures of the McCain campaign and how Sarah was angry at their weaknesses.
Sean starts out talking about Mayor Cory Bookers condemnation of Obama, and his subsequent attempts to walk it back. He and Sarah also talk about the teacher in North Carolina who has a heated argument with a student, who asked a question about Obama, after the teacher was trashing Mitt Romney. The teacher claims people went to jail for saying bad things about Bush.
As readers know, thats not true. In fact Hollywood made fantasy movies about killing President Bush, using actual archival footage of Bush. None of this group went to jail, or were even talked to by Secret Service. They did however win some industry awards.
Sarah says she hopes this teacher, who is currently on paid suspension, isnt tenured. I wonder why and how people like this ever get hired. Also why teachers are allowed tenure, making them essentially impossible to fire, in the first place.
A lot of topics discussed in this interview.
Sarah says she is going to once again focus on sending Conservatives to the House and Senate this fall. Though she doesnt mention Romney by name, she says she will help the nominee beat Obama. Once again saying anybody but Obama.
Sarah is one of a kind!! I love her. I wonder what would happen if all of us Conservatives did a 'write in' for Sarah? She couldn't turn us down - could she?
If you saw Chrissy “Peace Corps” Matthews on Jeopardy, you know how ludicrous this headline is:
Matthews: Palin’s Briefing Papers “Have The Weight Of A Comic Book”
You make a good point. I agree.
“We have a two party system”
It seems like we have a Rinocrat party - a republicrat oligarchy ruling America.
It looks more like one big socialist party with two faces to me. If we had two parties, wouldn’t there be a difference in the two candidates?
Welcome to the United Soviet States of America..where the Pravda State Media vet the candidates to the pleasure and needs of the RinoCrat UniParty.
This election will be a non-election...featuring the state approved candidates-whose only distinction is whether they are black or white.
The two-PARTEY system merely means that the R & D in DC gang up on Flyover Country....and laugh all the way to the bank as they do so
Right on target! Maybe it's time for a wake-up call. We are registered Republicans and stay that way to vote in primaries that totally ignore us.
The first step to forming a new party might be an exodus from the Republican party to being an Independent. They say the Independents are the ones who decide the election right?
For a nice change - how about that being us!!
personally...i lean to where Palin appears to be going...the re-conquest of the Pubbies by Tea Party Constitutional Conservatives.
the only problem being, we have to deal with attitudinal RINO’s...
“The two-PARTEY system merely means that the R & D in DC gang up on Flyover Country....and laugh all the way to the bank as they do so”
And only the hopelessly naive and nostalgic voters think one more trip to the polls this November is really going to help this country.
the only problem being, we have to deal with attitudinal RINOs..."
Wouldn't being an Independent by-pass the RINOs? We could vote for whoever WE decide to vote for.
Its getting to the point where We the People as independents may well outnumber each registered party..so that may well be an option...although I would once again trust Palin on this-she has absolutely stated that she believes it more effective to work within the existing party structures. She is closer to the action and certainly has the experience and judgment
however the GOP is rapidly going the way of the Whigs....
Romney has an 87% approval rating with GOP voters now. I don’t think we will ever change the opinions of the few fringe contrarians that are now not all in on getting the Kenyan out of the White House. The no-bots will never be supportive of any mainstream GOP candidate. It seems it is just too much fun being a rebel.
