Palin says Rice's view on abortion shouldn't disqualify her as VP
thehill.com ^ | July 13 2012 | Alicia M. Cohn

Posted on 07/13/2012 6:49:38 PM PDT by NoLibZone

“I think that Condoleezza Rice would be a wonderful vice president,” Palin told Fox News on Thursday night. She compared Rice's past experience favorably to that of Obama.

But Palin dismissed concerns over Rice's stance on the subject.

“I would certainly prefer a presidential and vice presidential candidate who had that respect for all innocent precious purposeful human life,” Palin said. “We need to remember, though, that it’s not the vice president that would legislate abortion and that would be Congress’s role, and we’ll keep that in mind.”

Well, Palin just went down a notch in my book. The VP should directly reflect the thoughts and policy of the president as far as I’m concerned.

I don’t often disagree with anything Palin says, but on this one I must. To think that killing babies is OK, cannot be forgiven.

I agree with SP. It is *other* things that IMO “disqualify” Condi. And I wouldn’t use the word “disqualify”, because in the 0bama/Maxine Waters/Joe Biden era of political buffoonery, the very concept of “qualifications” really does not exist.

Of course not because it has nothing to do with being 'conservative'. She is African American and by God that is what the GOP needs. To 'reach out'.

I don’t think she wants to run BUT... what if she was the vp and in 8 years she was running for prez. What would Sarah say then? I don’t think i could vote in the election if she were the vp pick. except for the congress.
In my opinion the dems are wicked but the reps are stupid.

Sorry. I refuse to even vote for a local school board candidate who isn’t pro-life. A person’s fundamental valuing of life permeates all other attitudes and decisions.

That is correct. To me...the person who thinks abortion is "OK" or a woman's choice has a mental defect. I cannot understand that mindset...and if they are that corrupted in their thinking...then they are likely corrupted about other things.

Sarah Palin: “We need to remember, though, that it’s not the vice president that would legislate abortion and that would be Congress’s role, and we’ll keep that in mind.”

And what happens if President Romney dies in office, and Condi Rice becomes President?

Here's what happens: if Congress should pass some pro-abortion legislation, 'President Rice' will have no problem signing it. Sarah should be asking Condi Rice how her opinion on abortion would have factored in if it had been the former piano-playing Secretary of State that had been carrying Trig for 9 months.

God bless Sarah Palin for choosing life.

But what would Condi have done in similar circumstances?

I heard what Palin said as she said it, and like she said it.

You are putting the OOOM PHASIS on the wrong SYL ABLE

What you have here is Palin simply not taking the bait to trash a former Secretary of State ~ for no good reason.

This was not, as those who know more about it have said, a Republican rumor ~ it was a Democrat rumor.

IN that light Palin's comment was pretty noncommital.

At the same time all that Romney has at stake if he picks an abortion rights supporter is the loss of the entire RTL community when it comes to campaigning on the ground, and most likely voting for the top of the ticket.

Remember, some Republicans have conspired together to make sure they are always known as 'the stupid party' and Mitt's dad was a charter member of that club ~ so there's no guessing just how stupid he can be.

I"m convinced he's a loser.

I think Palin understands there will never be a law that ends the murder of the unborn. To accomplish that a society has to be prosperous. Prosperity is how you end crime. Prosperity is how you enrich a culture. That's how.

Stamping ones feet accomplishes nothing. Calling the 'impure' murderers does nothing other than ensure the continuance of dead babies.

Me? I want every fertilized egg to have its three score and ten. Or twenty if by way of health.

FReepers reading this thread should note that the headline to the article on The Hill is misleading and does not reflect Palin’s views accurately, as expressed in her TV interview referenced. A search of NoLibZone’s past posts will reveal a clearer image of the attitude toward Palin. It is not neutral. Here’s another excerpt from Ms. Cohn’s article:

“I would certainly prefer a presidential and vice presidential candidate who had that respect for all innocent precious purposeful human life,” Palin said. “We need to remember, though, that it’s not the vice president that would legislate abortion and that would be Congress’s role, and we’ll keep that in mind.”

I’m kind of surprised at the posts on this thread as if winning the White House is more important than stopping the genocide of the unborn. No thanks.

And some of you Freepers still adore Palin ? Best thing ( for her ) was losing in 2008 . She’s got 100 times more $ than she would have had otherwise . Maybe Condi will play fall guy with Ramney for the dough , too .

“We need to remember, though, that it’s not the vice president that would legislate abortion and that would be Congress’s role, and we’ll keep that in mind.”

When she was running for governor she said it was up to the Supreme Court. Four years ago, as a vice-presidential candidate, she said it was up to the states. Now she says it's up to Congress.

Fact is, it isn't up to any of them. The right to life is God-given and therefore unalienable. No legislature, no executive, no court, has any legitimate power to act against the equal protection of all life. Period.

I think she is striving to help give profound meaning to her youngest son’s life, and others like him, even if it is a shorter, handicapped lifetime. Perhaps that’s part of what she meant.

Palin’s thoughts on this should be looked at no differently then Dick Cheney’ view on Gay Marriage. In other words it makes no difference. The VP follows the lead of the President that’s all Sarah Palin is recognizing.

I was watching at the time...

Was not very flattering what she said of Rice...saying basically that she did not have respect for human life.

Was she supposed to trash her on National tv? I think she made her point.

I am dead against Condy for her statement that she is “mildly pro choice” CRAPOLA!!! This makes her unfit for office
