Sarah Palin wouldn’t blink in voting for Romney, she affirms it’s ANYBODY. BUT. OBAMA.
The Right Scoop ^ | June 20 2012 | The Right Scoop

Posted on 06/20/2012 4:34:56 PM PDT by NoLibZone

Sarah Palin says that Obama did not respect the balance of power in the federal government when he issued his executive order last week on immigration, that he is now just telling Americans what he deems best by fiat. It was so blatant that she also suggested that we go back and talk to some of his former students because it’s clear Obama doesn’t understand our constitutional process.

She was also asked about criticism that she didn’t mention Romney in her speech at Right Online. But her reason was simple, that it would have violated the ground rules based on AFP’s legal status as a non-profit. But she makes very clear where she stands and said that if the vote were had today, she wouldn’t blink in voting for Romney over Obama and maintains she’s always held the position of anybody but Obama.

This used to be a forum of considerable sway.

That said, I do realize we don’t live in a bubble.

My husband never liked him (but he would have voted for him). I was dumbfounded by our candidates. Really? This is who we are offering. Other than Perry, I couldnt imagine the country rallying around one of them.

Newt? sorry but republican women care about adultery when it comes to who they will vote for as president. We can call the republican masses stupid all we want but it won’t change that they wouldn’t want to vote for him.

I would have voted for hin even though I remember him leaving office in disgrace, and he’s a serial adulterer. And he made that commercial with Pelosi...He was still better than Obama, just like Romney is...at least they don’t hate America. IMO

I don’t see it that way. The tea party kept fighting in special elections after that, and in the Wisconsin recalls too. So, the warriors are still out there, just not rallying in the streets. The primaries surely caused divisions, but I think that’s just a speed bump. Once this election is over, hopefully we can get our act together and focus on the big picture again.

The fix was in a long, long time ago. The GOP-e hand picked Romney as they hand picked McCain.

I often think it's just a game of Good Cop/Bad Cop and all the Politicos retire to chambers, smoke cigars , sip cognac and slap each other on the back as they laugh, that they put one over on us.

I stand very firm on my tag line.

WE ABSOLUTELY MUST repeal Obamacare in total. Nobody knows what is in that bloated abomination.

I know for an absolute fact that a GOP majority Senate and House cannot make Obama repeal his own legacy victory. Obama will NEVER NEVER NEVER repeal his own sacred socialized medicine law.

So that only leaves me the slim hope that Romney can be dragged, shamed, bullied, blackmailed or bought into repealing Obamacare. I don’t care which. Blackmail is just fine, so long as they get Romney to sign the outright repeal.

So while I know Romney is a socialist-light abortion-loving liberal who is no friend of ours, I also know that another Obama term will make it IMPOSSIBLE to repeal Obamacare. After 4 years of implementation, it will be impossible to pull the trough away from those swilling from it.

The best favor Obama did for us was to hold off implementation until after the election. We will hold the House and we should take the Senate. We will have to body slam the GOP-e to demand the full repeal of Obamacare, but I think they will respond to our full onslaught.

Romney is a tougher sell, but once we bring on the Senate and House, we can get to Romney.

We can NEVER get to Obama.

Another Obama term means the Obamacare repeal fails.

Failure to repeal Obamacare means our Republic is lost.

I am stunned that the people who refuse to vote for Romney can’t see this. I’m stunned that they would even risk Obama’s re-election victory in this light.

“it had MITT’S fingerprints”

The man just about hired every anti-Palinite on McCain’s staff as soon as the 2008 election was over. He’s as calculating a politician as they come; he knew the biggest threat to his plan, and he set to work on her before her plane touched down back in Alaska.

Given that Obama and Romney are merely two sides of the same coin, the strategy makes a whole lot of sense. I want whichever statist Socialist who wins this thing, to go into 2013 with the slimmest plurality possible, to rule out any pretense of a mandate.

Bump to the top.

If you can show a causal line from Mitt to the leftist Democrat attacks through the ethics loophole on Sarah Palin in Alaska, well give it your darndest. I have seen no documentation, only innuendo. If you think Mitt is a person of innuendo, certainly you then ought to know better than to indulge in that yourself.

Sarah was of sufficiently good character that Mitt mud would just drop off without leaving a mark. Mitt is not who Sarah feared. It was Democrats who hit a new low. They didn’t just hit below the belt, they struck at the soles of her feet.

Throwing a tantrum eight months before the election ...

You mean you think the Republican party is so entitled to my conservative vote that my refusal to sanction a candidate on record for promoting FIVE major liberal agendas, is "throwing a tantrum"?

This "tantrum" is one I hope spreads enough to make whichever guys wins, yours or the Democrats', ridiculed internationally and despised domestically because nearly two in three Americans voted against him. I will be voting FOR helping conservatives in Congress fight whichever guy wins by making him that politically injured.

You tell yourself that you'll be voting "against" Obama, but you will also be voting for advancing the liberal agenda on the back of the Republican party. That, VVV, is what you will be voting FOR. No wonder you have to scold me for having a "temper tantrum" -- it's your only escape.

Uh oh.

Sarah voting for ABO?

That one will reverberate thru FR.

Yup.

Here are Sarah Palin's words verbatim (and link to video of full interview with Sean Hannity):

"Yes, if that vote were to be taken today, obviously I would vote for Governor 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!"

~ Sarah Palin on "Hannity" (June 19, 2012)

Check out Sarah's comments re: the above statement starting at about 4:03 minutes into the video.

And just for the record: I am NO Mittbot. However, I will crawl over broken glass to vote for Obama's opponent on November 6, 2012. IMO, this country cannot survive another four years of Obozo's Marxist shenanigans.

Despite all that we still are in a position to win , and change things.

The way I see it know, is we have a crappy potential commander and a reluctant Army.

We need to vote in all the Conservative Jr Officers and Non Comms we can find.

We have to give the current Commander the old heave ho over the fan tail.

Mitt Romney is not the problem any more than idiot Juan McCain was.

Don't compare LIBERAL Romney to RINO McCain. McCain served our country! McCain didn't initiated same sex marriage and he was not a baby killing candidate!

'Try' to be honest and compare liberal MITT with liberal OBAMA.

Both are godless creatures
Both appointed liberal judges
Both initiated Socialistic healthcare named after themselves!
Both are PRO abortion
Both are for same sex marriage
and Mitt both initiated it and, then, personally married many of them
Both are KNOWN LIARS
Both never served their country and neither did their family
BOTH have 'accomplishments' that DEGRADE America.
Both hates conservatism
Both are evil

And that list is NOT what America is about. That belongs to one nation under evil.

I can respect those Freepers who honestly believe Romney is just as evil, damaging, and harmful to the US Republic as Obama is. I don’t buy that for a minute, but I respect those who honestly feel that way.

I have far less respect for those who say “well Romney is an abortionist, so I refuse to vote for him.” I respect their point of view if their religion precludes them from voting for any abortionist.

But in the context of my post about Sir Winston Churchill,
if we end up with Obama, we still get an abortionist. So what does one gain by wasting his vote by not voting for Romney, and ending up with the abortionist Obama.

A man like Churchill, if loath to vote for an abortionist, would still analyze with clear cool shrewdness that the next president was guaranteed to be an abortionist either way, and then would move on to the next issue at hand regarding the two candidates.

In this case, I know I am getting an abortionist, so I might as well vote for the one who might sign an Obamacare repeal, than for me to waste my vote and allow the re-election of the abortionist who will not sign an Obamacare repeal over his dead body.

I’m just bringing logic to the analysis instead of indulging in my emotional/spiritual sanctity of so many hear so they can feel good about their votes, even as the cut off my noses to spite their faces.

But NO problem with baby killing and same sex marriage?? What kind of woman are those? WEAK EXCUSE, there twink! Now they are supporting cheating a baby a right to live! And those that do 'get to live', homos can raise them - cheating them out of normalcy and goodness. They are bowing to the worst evil now and an accomplice to it with supporting those who endorse and enforce it!! Tainted forever.

And when women care so much about adultery to interfere with voting for the BEST for America - I'd say they are taking their personal experiences before our country.

Pure and simply WRONG.

Tell me, if an independent or a disillusioned Democrat doesn't vote for Obama and instead goes third party like I will, is that still a vote for Obama? Or is it a vote for Romney?

There's only one way to vote for Obama, and that's to mark your ballot for him. I will mark my ballot for a third-party candidate and pray that enough others do the same so that whoever wins gets such a sick plurality that our conservatives in Congress will be able to dominate him.

There is NOTHING pure and simple about voting for romney - it is EVIL and not simple when judgement time comes. And now you have your part in DEGRADING AMERICA just like obama.

I pray for all of Congress to gain in limited government conservatives. Don't you? Aren't you planning to vote down-ticket? I am.

My goal is to make sure that whichever president they get is as weak as possible, and the best way I can do that with my vote at the top of the ticket is to deny statist Romney my sanction and be on record doing it. If enough Americans disgusted with this charade vote third party and force a plurality on the winner, conservative Republicans will have a much easier time opposing the statist administration of whichever guy wins, when that guy is snickered at internationally and despised nationally because the majority of Americans voted against him, and when that guy is constantly having to watch his back in his own party because everyone knows how weak his support is.

You'd best pray for a plurality.

Here is Romney "dabbling" into liberal issues.

"I believe abortion should be safe and LEGAL in this country; I have since my mom took that position in 1970 as a US Senate candidate."
~Mitt Romney

"I believe that my record, my life, is a clear indication of my support and insistence on anti-discrimination [gay rights] and on efforts to assure equal rights for all."
~Mitt Romney

"I believe that all people should have the right to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation."
~Mitt Romney

"Look, I was an Independent during the time of Reagan/Bush. I'm not trying to return to the time of Reagan/Bush."
~Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney tries to convince voters he is more liberal than Ted Kennedy.

I clearly understand you will never vote for Romney, but my logic 100% correct. You do the math.

Obama needs to win more votes than Romney to keep his office. There will not be a 3rd party president. The next president will either be Obama or Romney.

If the Conservative base starves Romney of votes by voting 3rd party, then he will lack the votes to win the election. So who wins if not Romney?

Obama wins.

So when you and many thousands of other conservatives vote 3rd party rather than Romney, you are causing Obama to win the election. By not voting for Romney, you are not stopping the election of Obama.

That is something even a kindergarten child can understand.

To: Finny

When members of the Democrat Party voter base vote 3rd party, they are not voting to prevent Romney from being elected. It translates into their voting for Romney.

No, it is not a direct vote. It is an indirect vote.

If they vote for Obama, it cancels out a vote for Romney.

If they write in Hillary Clinton, then their vote does not cancel out a vote for Romney, and Romney gains against Obama.

In the same way, if you vote 3rd party, then the Romney vote you would have cast that cancels out a Dem Obama vote, no longer cancels that vote.

In the end, Obama racks up more votes and wins.

If Obama wins, and you helped cause that win, then you “voted for Obama”.

Now you can argue the specifics all day that technically you did not cast a ballot vote for Obama, and you would be technically correct. You did not actually vote to put him over the top.

But every 3rd party vote like yours that does not go to Romney, reduces his vote tally in your state, making it easier for the people voting for Obama to give him the win.

If Obama wins, he wins. It really doesn’t matter if you cast an actual vote or just a virtual vote by withholding your vote from his opponent. He still wins. You still helped him win.

Now in your case, you are perfectly fine with an Obama win. As you stated, your only concern is that should he win, he wins by the slimmest margin.

And what does that achieve?

When Obama passes an Executive Order requiring all cars to be electric powered, then how does your slim margin matter? You still have Obama in dictatorial power.

We will not be able to repeal Obamacare if he wins, even by a single slim vote. Repealing Obamacare matters to me. Maybe not so much to you.
