Sarah Palin: Anyone but Obama in the White House (Tue, Apr 3, 2012)
Associated Press ^ | April 3, 2012 | FRAZIER MOORE

Posted on 04/03/2012 9:53:24 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

NEW YORK (AP) — Sarah Palin doesn't sound too gung-ho about Mitt Romney as the GOP presidential candidate, but she insists that anyone is better than Barack Obama in the White House.

Anybody "would be infinitely better than what we have today," Palin said Tuesday on the "Today" show.

When the level of quality that Republicans rally behind is Any Liberal Republican, that’s what Republicans will get every time.

I don’t see how electing a leftist like Myth Romney who has expressed an interest at kicking conservatives out of the party-would be better than Obama.

When Obama pushes leftist legislation we at least have some token opposition. With Romney at the head of the GOP, we will see socialism passed almost unanimously.

True—choosing between Romney and Obama is like choosing to change either a wet or a dirty diaper.

Much better for everyone to have another choice but neither the Left nor their RINO pals will give us one.

And Sarah Palin endorses Mitt Romney de facto.

I am not surprised.

The question is, will the conservative base roll over and pretend Romney is a conservative? Or believe they can control him?

Personally, I’m not voting for Romney, and I’m going to hold Sarah Palin partially responsible that we do not get a distinct choice in presidential contestants this year.

Congratulations to the ruling elite, you’ve won the 2012 presidential election. And I for one welcome our ruling elite overlord... ah to hell with it.

How about Mitt O’Romney the Barry Soetoro mini-me or Hillary Clinton? So Sarah is playing the least common denominator game like everyone else in the GOP elite and DC. She needs to get a clue.

Maybe she can talk some sense into the “I’m gonna hold my breath until Mitt Romney goes away” folks. There seems to be several contingencies here at FR. You have the hardcore “I would vote for Satan over Romney” crowd. You have the “I won’t vote POTUS” crowd. You have the “I’m writting in ____” crowd. There’s the optimistic “It isn’t over yet” crowd and the never-give-up “brokered convention draft Sarah” crowd. I’m sure I am leaveing some out ... there’s probably a few birther’s who are unconvinced that any of the candidates are eligible.

It won’t make any difference if Obama is allowed to stuff the SCOTUS with Ruth Ginsberg types. Sarah is right because this is our last chance, demographically, politically and morally to at least slow down the progressive train that is about to seek complete control of our government with a permanent party like the PRN in Mexico. Obama and his minions have shown that they are not comfortable with any opposition to their utopian dreams. I don’t think any of the Republican candidates would attempt to create a one-party system, do you? Just use Daniel Ortega as a template. When he was re elected, he stuffed the Supreme Court in Nicaragua with his cronies, then had them strike down the law restricting term limits for presidents, so he could be like Chavez. This is what we have to look forward to, and as bad as some of our candidates may be, none would venture to do that. None! These are not your Mother’s liberals from the past.

When governor, I hear that Romney appointed many liberals to the courts.

So I still find nothing conservative about the guy.

Gotta disagree with Gov. Palin here. If the conservative wing of the party always eats the crap sandwich foisted upon it, no matter how grudgingly, next time around, they’re going to get crap sandwich, not steak.

I’ve come to agree. The spineless Republican congress will never fight Barry because they’re all scared to death of being called “rayciss”, but they would be willing to have it at it with Romney. Plus after the threat Barry made yesterday to the SC, I believe that he has to go no matter what.

Sorry Sarah but Mitt Romney IS worse than Obama. We will get the same liberal policies and appointments but it will be done in OUR NAME.

Before the rats took over, Republicans in general and Bush specifically refused to act conservatively on many important issues (housing, EPACT, auto bail out, NCLB, etc.) The resulting economic and social turmoil gave the fascists the opening they needed to gain all the levers of power.

God only knows what kind of horror show a Romney presidency will lead to.

So far our token opposition has resulted in Obama getting everything his America-hating Marxist heart desires.

I have to disagree with you there. I'm with Mrs. Palin on this. Anyone but obama, even Biden. While Biden would be a disaster as President, it would be due to his bumbling nature and bad politics. hussein on the other hand is actively damaging to the US.

Biden would be inept and do damage, but it wouldn't be as great as the planned and intentional damage we have going on now. I'd see Biden being former President Jimmy Carter all over again. I don't think even Eric Holder would be as bad. Sure, he's hussein's man, and he'd try to do the same things to us that hussein is doing. But I don't think he has the chops to be in charge. Hmm, that sounds dangerously close to a compliment to hussein, no-one is as good at being bad for America as barack hussein obama.

No one here is going to argue against Romney as a poor choice for the nomination, but it is pretty clear we cannot have four more years of Obama, four more years of radial court appointments, and ever growing government bureaucratic tyranny. Our challenge over the next four years is to force the House and Senate to stay to the right, follow the Ryan plan, and pressure the White House. The House members need to know if they steer to the left under pressure of a Romney presidency that they will be gone in 2014 when we stay home. This is our best option at this stage. The tea party has greatly helped steer the GOP to the right, and our job is just beginning.

I wish the Tea Party would work hard to get states to pass constitutional eligibility requirements much the same as some states have in the works. It seems to me that if Obama can’t make the ballot, he can’t get elected. Then maybe we’d have a chance.

I don’t think that there’s any question that Mitt Romney is, by nature, a capitalist and that Barack Obama, by nature, is not. Romney, by his election (or any other Republican), will open up the spigot of American investment, resulting in more jobs and greater prosperity. So, despite my misgivings about much of Romney’s character and issue positions, I do believe that Gov. Palin is correct that anyone - even Romney - is far better for the country than Obama. That isn’t so much an endorsement of Romney than a statement of practically indisputable fact.

Get back to me when the Republicans nominate a Republican. Other than taxes, I can't see how Romney is any better than Obama -- both pro-abortion, pro-gay, pro-illegal, pro-bailouts, pro-government healthcare takeover, etc.

If anything, Romney is more dangerous because a GOP House and Senate will thwart Obama while they will do the exact same thing for Romney.

Romney doesn't want people like me in the party. I'm just obliging.

I can vote for Mitt if I absolutely have to. What I can’t do is make him run a good enough campaign to win against Barry and the Chicago Way this fall. That’s something he, and his family, and his people need to step up and do for themselves. And I really am running short on time to see to my satisfaction that they can do that.

Hmmm, how to put this... you know Barry was one of the many Democrat community organizers trained in Alinsky's methods, right?

Well, in contrast, Hillary worked directly with Alinsky and was personally asked, by Alinsky, to take over his work.

The difference is one of scale.

Hillary is the freight train.

Obama is the smiley face painted on front of the freight train.

Hillary is just as disgusted as the rest of America with Obama, but for slightly different reasons.

You see, it's obvious to her that he should have started with the concentration camps first.

That is merely one of the things she intends to fix, if elected.

Scale.

This is not just any ordinary election. People are scared about the future. People want competence and a president with a green eye shade. People want normalcy again. They’ve been in this ‘hope’ dream and want to be pinched out of it.
I think the Romney campaign has understood this all along.

People want this country righted, but not necessarily by the most ‘right’ candidate. I think they just want someone with solid, proven, competent, successful business experience. This election is not about the usual social issues that divide right and left. It is about the economy, the debt, and this country’s future and who can best right the course.

Romney has been just about my last default choice, but I can go with him over Obama without a moment’s hesitation. And if we elect a tea party House of Representatives, Romney will have to yield to those forces. I also believe Romney will have to go pretty far to the right in picking a VP.

I just want my sanity and my country back. I want my son to have a future.

Sarah Palin would be better than Obama as president. Anyone agree? Well we should send her emails that will convince her to run.

It's funny that I ask this . But in other message boards democrats/socialists and others brainwashed by the socialist mainstream media actually believe that Palin is dumb and the princess of Darkness etc. The media creates a false virtual reality world as in the Matrix movie. People still believe the media even after all they lie about like global warming, the NBC edited tape to make Zimmerman look like a racist etc.

The media ignores $4 gas prices and the media campaign for Obama. But the media blame Bush for gas prices and blamed Palin for that liberal shooting that congress woman and others. What's Palin’s and Republicans’ crime? That we believe in limited government and that government is not God. so we get demonized by the biased media.The mainstream media creates a false virtual reality world as in the Matrix movie. People still believe the media even after all they lie about like global warming, the NBC edited tape to make Zimmerman look like a racist , the media blaming Bush for high gas prices but not blaming Obama for gas prices etc. The media are socialists/democrats propagandists posing as reporters. In this false world of the media zimmerman is a white racist, Palin is dumb and the queen of darkness. The reality is that Palin is very smart and would be a great president and that zimmerman is not a racist and a hispanic.

What is your point? That you have justification for sitting on your ass and do nothing? And since anything else that you do that meets your ignorant standard is a complete waste if time and effort.

You are one of those who have gone so far to the Right, that you unknowingly, came back out on the left. Just like Pat Buchanan.

Obama is piling on a mountain of debt on us , $5 trillion in debt already, sending our jobs to china, letting in a horde of illegals, committing a hundred crimes against the constitution, increasing government size and tyranny , censoring the Internet with ACTA , and a thousand other crimes. It will destroy America when it will have more “flexibility” in it's 2nd term as it said.
