Has ANY America-hating Communist been able to form a solid stool, since Sarah Palin’s lovely visage appeared on the political scene?

Michael Savage said it best about Mitt:” A cotten man in a nice suit”.
Mitt is a weather vane. Just pointing where the wind blows. No real direction, just spinning.
What a sorry state of affairs.

Limbaugh said today that little marko is destined to be president. I’m not for that at all.

Boy latey my gut is telling me he isn't ready for primetime, here is why...

He is a great speaker but lately he is too slick by 1/2, much like all the financial taking heads on CNBC during the financial porn haydays of 98',99'.....

Until he becomes a Governor, I am not interested. That is the Executive Farm Team IMHO We have had so many Presidents that weren't Governor's that sucked, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and now Obama, not again thank you...

It’s Romney’s team MO to attack Sarah with anonymous sources which they have done before so the burden of proof should be on Romney and his people to prove this wrong since they have used this tactic since 2008 in attacking and sabotaging Sarah even when she was on the ticket which we got legit reporters saying it was so

Sorry, FRiend, but there is a MULTIPLICITY of source
corroborating misogynist Romney's attacks on Gov. Palin
AND HER CHILDREN through surrogates.

Romney is despicable and NEVER apologized.

has done this over and over and over.

Novak: "Fred Thompson drop-out rumors traced to Romney campaign"

Said Novak: "The rumors were traced in part to Mitt Romney's campaign,
trying to stir up strife between McCain and Thompson

"Despite outspending his rivals by huge margins throughout the primaries,
(Mitt Romney, Carpetbagger UT,CA,MA,NH,Mexico) lost Iowa, South Carolina, Florida and California.
The only primaries he won were in Michigan, where Dad was governor; LDS states;
and a few states on Super Tuesday in which his California-obsessed rivals
couldn't spare the cash to advertise.
Only John Connolly in 1968 had a worse cash-to-delegates ratio.
And John McCain rightly did not like Romney's tactics during the primaries.
(W)hen (Romney's early leads) started slipping away, he resorted to unfair,
distorted, scorched-earth negative ads, betting that his opponents couldn't
afford to spend enough for the truth to catch up to his charges."

Either way Romney is the designated nominee. The (BIG) difference is who to support the day after the next election.

I remain strongly decided on our nominee at this point.

Right up through the election. Day after, we’ll see...

I agree. It will be the Tea Party and conservatives in Congress against Romney starting the day after the election.

The nice thing about Romney is that when he loses in November, he’ll be discredited for any further running, leaving the door wide open for Sarah to run in 2016.

Tupelo ...

Well said ... "excellent" post ...

Reason number three million seven hundred thousand eight hundred and fifty one as to why I will not vote for Mit Romney.

Below are my predictions-warnings regarding mormon "Myth" Romney ...

whether if he "loses" (my prediction) ... or (WORST CASE) ... "wins" the GOP Nomination ... or (WORST CASE) ... the U.S. Presidency ...

"Myth" Romey is clearly a HATEFUL, vengeful, SOCIALIST, evil man ...

What happens when the (still powerful) assets of the FBI, CIA, NSA, NRO are handed over to the CONTROL of a "faithful mormon" ...

who BELIVES with ALL HIS HEART and SOUL that ...

Joseph Smith ... the lying, deceptful,l murderous SOB he was ...

is a "White-and-Delightsome" saint ?

Well ... we can always start by asking Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich just how EVIL "Myth" Romney really is ...


Myth Romney's "Mormon Hollywood Smile" masks a Dark Side that many have tasted the bitterness of his Wrath and Revenge ...

Two United States political Conservative (TEA Party leaning) leaders, Sarah Palin (and her Husband and Children) and Newt Gingrich (accomplished U.S. House Speaker) ...

were clearly targeted by the Mitt Romney "political hit squads" ...

and both Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich paid a heavy price for threatening Mitt Romney's long-standing visions of great political power and personal wealth.

Is it possible that a victorious (or perhaps, even worse) a defeated Willard "Mitt" Romney would, as Shakespeare wrote, "Cry Havoc, and Unleash the Dogs of War" against his post-2012 election opponents ?

Can we look to the experiences of Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich, to foretell what dire fate that Free Republic might harvest, should Mitt Romney turn his evil malice against his "Conservative Opposition" ?

Western writers have long ago uncovered the Islamic philosophy that "Lying to the Infidels" is a blessed and worthy practice , directly encouraged by Allah.

Narrated Ka'b ibn Malik: When the Prophet (salla Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam) intended to go on an expedition, he always pretended to be going somewhere else, and he would say: War is deception.


One of the Mormon's most embarrassing secrets is the tightly-covered-up Mormon-LDS scandal surrounding the CENSORSHIP and DESTRUCTION of the "Nauvoo Expositioner" newspaper in 1844.

Perhaps this frightening episode sheds some light on "why" some Mormon figures (such as Joseph Smith) will go to any length to protect their Earthly Wealth and Power.

Is Willard "Mitt" Romney ... cut from the same "moral cloth" (deceptive and violent) as Joseph Smith, founder of the Mormon Cult ?

"The Nauvoo Expositor Affair [Death of Mormon Joseph Smith]" has recently been discussed at Free Republic, for those who wish to learn more about this exceeding dark episode in Mormon history.

An Executive Summary would show that a powerful and wealthy and terribly emotional insecure cult dictator (reminiscent of the murderous Jim Jones), Joseph Smith ...

violently attempted to exterminate even the mere public discussion of his policies, allegations of fraud, and abuse of power ...

even within the very "church" that he had (allegedly) miraculously founded.

Joseph Smith turned violently on fellow Mormons who had stood loyally and valiantly at Smith's side for over a decade, through the hardest of times ...

If that was how Joseph Smith treated his "best of friends" in the LDS faith ...

how then were Joseph Smith's "enemies" treated ?

Far worse, to be sure.

Which leads an inquiring mind to Willard "Myth" Romney ...

a self-proclaimed "Celestial God-Child from the Planet Kolob, located in the heavenly Constellation Cancer" ...

A man of great wealth ($ 150 million estimated personal fortune) and clear aspirations to power ... great power.

Was Mitt Romney following Joseph Smith's "politically violent" example when Mitt Romney attempted (behind-the-scenes) to politically destroy political opponents Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich ?

Many say that Romney followed Joseph Smith ... "perfectly".

So what fate then, does ANYONE who stands in opposition (at the smallest level) to Willard Romney ... share ?

What about independent Conservative Journalists such as Michelle Malikin, Shawn Hannity, Andrew Breibart (were he still alive) ?

What about independent Conservative Websites ?

Would Romney attempt their clandestine destruction ...

just as Joseph Smith violently DESTROYED "The Nauvoo Expositor" newspaper, published by Joseph Smith's most loyal and trusted friends ?

And what (indeed) happens when the (still powerful) assets of the FBI, CIA, NSA, NRO are handed over to the CONTROL of a "faithful mormon" ...

who believes that the VENGEFUL and MURDEROUS and EVIL Joseph Smith was a "saint" ... or worse still ... a self-proclaimed anti-christ "god" ...

These assets ( FBI, CIA, NSA, NRO) placed in the Greedy and Narcissistic fingers of "Myth" Romney ...

just as Joseph Smith was ...

a "Celestial God-Child from the Planet Kolob"?

This must be payback for her not falling at his feet and kissing his ring as the anointed one.

Sarah Palin is a leader. The Mittster... nowhere close.

Sarah Palin's grassroots support is broad and deep... red, white, and blue Americans who solidly back her and will stand up for her.

That would only make sense if Palin was perceived as a threat to Romney—like before she opted out of the presidential race in 2011. At this point that cannot be the case. There would be no point to Romney dissing Palin and angering her supporters.

The burden of proof is on the person making the claim. As long as that person remains anonymous the claim is, in my opinion, suspect.

I heard her with Hannity last night. When asked if she would support the “presumed” Republican nominee, she didn’t mention Romney’s name but said, as she noted she has said in the past, that she would vote for anybody that opposes Obama.

She knows who has sand bagged her and led the campaign against her and isn’t going to give them anything but a back handed endorsement.

That idea that 80% of Romney staffers went on to work in McCain's campaign sounds like a number drawn out of a hat. Most of Romney's top staffers didn't go on to work for McCain. They were either part of Romney's ongoing operation, or they had other jobs.

McCain's top people would have been long-time McCain loyalists. People who were in McCain's camp through all the primaries and before. And those were the people who would have had the closest contact with Palin.

If a former Romney staffer who set up rallies in Sioux Falls or raised money in Sacramento wanted to trash Palin, it's hard to see how their trash talk would get very far or how anybody would believe it or how such a campaign would be coordinated or why anyone would bother. It was people at the top of the McCain campaign who had the most contact with Sarah Palin and were most likely to be believed by the media. They also had a lot to gain or lose by spreading rumors.

Superficially, I guess, Romney people had a big motive: they were looking forward to running Mitt again in 2012. But the McCain people weren't going to just retire. When their candidate lost, they'd have to have excuses or they'd find it hard to get work the next time around, so there was plenty of reason for them to trash Palin.

Also, it turns out that some of the rumors were spread by disruptionists who had no connection with Romney or McCain or Palin or anyone else in the Republican Party. IIRC, Democrat bloggers created and spread the story that Palin didn't know that Africa was a continent, rather than a country -- they were also looking forward to 2012, I guess. But you know, somebody somewhere assumed that those Romney people in McCain's campaign were really behind that rumor.

I can't say that nobody who had ever worked for Romney might have said a nasty word about Palin, but so far as I can tell most of the rumors about Palin came from core McCain people or outside disruptionists. Blaming it all on Romneyites was another smear, at least in my opinion.

It didn't have to be intentionally false. If you ask around an office of professional McCain supporters about leaks in the campaign, it's natural that somebody would point at the campaign that had been McCain's chief opponent in the primaries. You know how this goes. Somebody wonders if it could be Romney's doing. Somebody else makes that guess. A third person says he hears rumors. A fourth says, there are too many people pointing the finger at Mitt's people: it has to be Romney's doing. And sooner or later, somebody's taking all the rumors as sources and reporting it as fact.

Let me repeat. I can't say that nobody in Romney's camp ever attacked Palin -- or spread rumors about other opponents. I'm just saying that this story doesn't pass the smell test to the extent that people think it does. There's something a little fishy in it.

You can agree or disagree, but there's a tendency to take unproven charges of specific activity and make them vague and general and full of "them versus us" sentiment in order to save them from skeptical criticism. Surely it does matter if Palmetto Scoop isn't entirely trustworthy about this matter and if his charges aren't entirely credible.
