Palin denies withholding support for Romney
The Daily Caller ^

Posted on 06/25/2012 1:00:46 PM PDT by mnehring

In an appearance on the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” on Tuesday, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told Sean Hannity that the reason why she didn’t endorse presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney during a Las Vegas speech this weekend was because she couldn’t.

The Daily Caller had pointed out on Tuesday that former Palin did not even mention Romney in her speech. But, Palin told Hannity, that doesn’t mean that the 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee isn’t supporting the former Massachusetts governor.

“There was a reason I did not mention Gov. Romney in my speech at the Americans for Prosperity Foundation event and RightOnline over the weekend, and that’s because I would have violated the ground rules for Americans for Prosperity Foundation. That you couldn’t violate their — I don’t know if it is a 501(c)3 — whatever the classification is of their organization.”

“No one mentioned Gov. Romney in their speeches nor endorsed anybody because that wasn’t what the conference was about. My role in the conference as a matter of fact in the conference was to point out the hypocrisy, the double standards and weakness of the old media and how the new citizen journalist media can rise up and take the place of what the old media used to represent and that is telling the truth and the facts to voters.”

Palin then went on to make it clear she was supporting Romney.

“I have said from day one and Sean, I think you said the exact same thingL It has been anybody but Obama. We have a presumptive nominee in the GOP process after a good competitive and very spirited competition to find that presumptive nominee,” Palin said. “And, yes, if that vote were to be taken today obviously I would vote for — for Gov. Romney over President Barack Obama in a heartbeat. I wouldn’t blink because I go back to what I said at the beginning — anybody but Obama.”

TRANSCRIPT of part of the Video Interview between Sean Hannity and Sarah Palin April 12 ,2012 :

http://www.mediafire.com/?wo9bxx7mqma9x1m

Hannity: (8:40min:seconds to 8:46 ) “Alright, Lets talk about the campaign and your convinced Romney’s it now? Do you think it’s pretty much over?”

Palin(8:47 – 9:09 ) “Well let me put it this way, I don’t want Newt to drop out, I don’t want Ron Paul to drop out, because I want debate still on the ideas that both of the other candidates have been able to espouse and explain to the country, I want Ron Paul’s message about cutting the budget, about the economic woeful times that we are in and what we can do about it I want those to continue to be discussed and Newt has some good ideas too.”

Hannity: (9:09-9:22 ) Are you convinced, because you spoke about this at an earlier time during the primary, are you convinced as to time has gone on that governor Romney will govern as a solid strong conservative or do you still have doubts?

Palin: (9:23-9:37 ) “I am convinced that governor Romney, if he is our nominee and if he is elected president, he will know to surround himself with those that will inherently know to go right, to err on the side of smaller, smarter government and that gives me a lot of confidence.”

Is Sarah a RINO?

How about Dick Cheney?

“It’s very important that we gather together and get behind our likely nominee Mitt Romney,” Cheney said Saturday in Cheyenne. “Mitt Romney can do a whale of a job for us, as a candidate and as a president.”

Well, she’s obviously just a dirty, rotten, stinking third partyist who needs to get over it and figure out that Romney is the nominee and only one of two people is going to win in November, so it might as well be the one with the “R” after his name.

No.

RINOs are by BEHAVIOR.

LIKE Romney creating DEATH Panels.

LIKE ROmney forcing RomneyCARE.

LIKE Romney forcing Gay Marriage without Legislature
but by Improper Executive Authority.

Like Romney nominating only liberal judges.

Sorry, but there is a rebellion against the PHONEY Milt.

IMHO, Sarah Palin is, still, the best choice for ‘12 POTUS, despite everything that the left threw at Sarah and despite Sarah choosing not to run for ‘12 POTUS. This is a missed political opportunity for Sarah Palin, and people can speculate how she would of done, win or lose, forever.

With some people here, if you don’t agree with them 100% of the time, you are a RINO.

But remember, “If everyone’s a RINO, then no one is a RINO.”

I have supported Palin since she was introduced at the '08 convention.

I am no longer interested in what she has to say.

"Anybody but Obama" is not an endorsement, everybody should see that. If it were, it would mean that she would vote for me... Or Nanci... Or Jerry Brown... Or Hillary...

Words do have meaning, would she vote for me or the others, I guess not, but if she is a team player and has exposure in the media she should endorse Romney as the "ONLYbody but Obama."

How is practicing RINO Republicanism by a, possible, Romney administration, for the next four years, if not, even, longer, a very good thing for long-term conservatism?

So I says to myself, “Self. Cain’t you see (I talks to myself in southernese)...cain’t you see that the only way Romney was ever going to get to be President was if someone really really really bad was elected President first and then all of Romney’s many many faults as a candidate would then seem so very small compared to this really really really bad President. So, since he did not get the nomination in 2008, he had to torpedo the 2008 Republican ticket behind the scenes, which he did wonderfully in a variety of ways without getting the blame, and also torpedo any Republican competition that might arise against him, which he also has been doing constantly.

All is working beautifully for him and now no one, not even the candidate most Americans really want to have as President, can get in his way this time.

Myself was dumbstruck by the thought.

I understand completely who and what Romney is and that is a hellava lot better that what's currently in the White House.

Despite Obama's recent actions, we are not electing a Dictator or King!

If we keep electing more and more T.E.A. Party Conservatives in the House & Senate, and they have a Republican in the WH, that can only be a good thing.

I also will be voting for many Republicans this November. But a few of us on this forum, including the owner/operator, find more than enough faults with the apparent Republican nominee and are constrained to vote for someone other than this (pre-selected) nominee.

And I really do not intend to annoy you by just disagreeing with you on this one point.

Milt Romney IS NOT a Republican ... except to get his goals
which are NOT conservative.




Mitt "DEATH PANEL" RomneyCARE (D, "R", Shapeshifter):
"I'm not running as the Republican view or a continuation of Republican values.
That's not what brings me to the race.

(Backstabber Romney Video, accessed 9/19/07)



"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party
 over to the traitors in the battle just ended.
We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged
 to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support.
Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates
wouldn't make any sense at all.""

--  President Ronald Reagan

“I’m concerned if we get 4 more years of Baraq we’ll have any ability to recover, at least in my lifetime.”

If Barack is re-elected what you’ll get is Civil Disobedience in a number of major cities with huge crowds in the street like the 2009 DC protests against O’care.

If Romney wins you’ll get, and see?

Nuthin’ but more of the same.

Palin’s remembering that she Is going to have to deal with our RINO party bosses who have handed us this plate of Rotten Romney. If she turns on them openly she’s got no future at all in the party. Depending on how much RINO Koolaid she’s willing to drink, or not, I may still consider voting for her in 2016 or 2020, and That is what’s coming out of her mouth at the moment.
