Skip to comments.People Need To STOP Bashing Sarah Palin Over McCain
Posted on 03/26/2010 8:44:09 AM PDT by wk4bush2004
So yeah, I'm getting sick and tired of how people are bashing Sarah Palin over her endorsement of McCain.
We all know why she's doing it and she has my complete respect and support.
So, anyway, conservatives are fighting amongst each other over this and it really is pathetic! On Sarah's Facebook page, people keep lamenting, whining and moaning over it, and I kept calmly trying to calm them down, but they wouldn't listen. Finally, I lost it and said:
"FOR GOD'S SAKE, PEOPLE, PULL YOURSELVES TOGETHER!!!!! THIS IS NOT HOW A GROUP OF PATRIOTS ACTS!!!!!!!!
SERIOUSLY, DOES SOMEONE HAVE TO BE 100% PERFECT IN YOUR EYES IN ORDER FOR THEM TO BE A VIABLE CANDIDATE???? LAST TIME I CHECKED, NO ONE IS!
SARAH PALIN IS THE BEST CHANCE WE HAVE TO UNSEAT OBAMA AND HIS FASCIST REGIME AND YOU'RE ALL HERE TOO BUSY ARGUING ABOUT ONE ENDORSEMENT!!!!!!!! THAT IS PATHETIC!!!!!!!!!!
WE HAVE TO BE 100% UNITED IN ORDER TO DEFEAT THE SOCIALISTS!!!!!!! STOP GETTING INTO STUPID PETTY FIGHTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SARAH ENDORSED MCCAIN! OK, DONE, NEXT ISSUE, PLEASE!!!!!!!"
I'm no military guy, but I do know that in a battle, you need to have a UNITED FRONT and petty arguments like this are dividing the front!
It is obvious that Sarah Palin is the only one who can defeat Obama and that we need to be united around her!
Actually, we DON'T know why she's selling out to the quisling McInsane.
Good post. Preserving and strengthening the party is what’s important here. We can’t afford to be seen discarding John McCain. Sarah Palin can’t afford it either.
While I personally agree with your sentiments, others don’t. They’re free to think for themselves.
I do think that every news article that states that Palin is doing exactly what she said she’ll do hardly qualifies as “news”, but I don’t want to get in the business of being the “posting police”, either.
How are they supposed to act ? I never got the memo...
MCCAIN-Feingold gave us the Dem 2006/2008 Congress and 2008 Obama. We are where we are (close to tyranny) thanks to McCain.
Sarah can just avoid and ignore him. She has chosen to support him. I loathe all teh other RINOs - Mitt, Jeb, Newt, and others supporting McCain. If people cannot see the evil McCain has wroght then they are stupid.
Maybe I can make it a little simpler “Your Life is F’ed because of McCain & his friend Obama - it may be E’ffed for good too.”
Anyone supporting McCain is a fool or worse than a fool. McCain has called us “racists” using the Alinsky smear.
When she agreed to be his running-mate, she essentially and effectively endorsed him. For her to rescind her endorsement would be to hand ammunition to her enemies. That’s politics in the major league. It is what it is.
If we don't politically discard those who have discarded the Constitution, we shouldn't be surprised when we have no country left.
And John Judas McCain definitely discarded what really matters long ago.
Loyalty to an individual or a personality should not trump loyalty to this country, its people, or its fundamental principles.
The best thing that could happen to Sarah Palin is to be rid of John McCain. So, support J.D. Hayworth, and ACTUAL conservative instead of this squishy old ‘moderate’ and free her and all of us of him once and for all.
In other words - her principles are easily convoluted.
No. If you wish to attribute a particular principle to her, then she shouldn’t have agreed to be his running-mate in the first place. According to principle.
I guess they're supposed to blindly support rinos like Perry, Cornyn, and McCain who are already soft pedaling reversing this monstrosity of a health care bill. Since, after all, it wouldn't be such a bad bill if it is supported by those whose names are followed by an "R".
Sarah Palin is NOT our only hope.
John McCain is one of the biggest problems of our govenment.
I like Sarah. If you don’t believe me, check out my youtube page: http://www.youtube.com/my_videos?feature=mhw4
However, as the problems grow in our country, I am beginning to feel that the problems are much, much bigger than Sarah. We MUST get someone in who can tackle them.
Hate me, if you will, but that’s how I see it right now.
Anyway, I don’t think she’s going to run.
To be honest its not just McCain its her support of Rand as well, two choices and both bad. Not saying I am walking away, but I would like a good explanation for both choices.
Yes, there is that, too.
“We cant afford to be seen discarding John McCain.”
Well, that’s what you’re going to see.
That’s all I’m saying. I’m not defending one or the other, just pointing-out the politics driving it.
Are we certain of this? Granted, she gets my vote over the current field of counterfeit conservatives, but....
AuntB, I have seen dozens of threads with thousands of posts from FReepers telling me why Sarah Palin is doing this. I have yet to see Palin herself explain why she is doing this. I may have missed it but I have not seen her own words on why she’s supporting a man who detests conservatives. She had plenty of time to rethink her position between the time she resigned and her stated support of McCain.
Didn’t she also come out in support of Stupak’s “stand on life” which turned out to be a joke.
“We cant afford to be seen discarding John McCain”
Who is WE? McCain is no conservative, he can’t even bring himself to support the RNC platform. He votes with the dems as often as the conservatives. He’s screwed up everything he touches...CFR, amnesty, cap& trade and on and on.
WE need some integrity and getting rid of John McCain is a good start. He’s doing more harm to Palin than the left is.
If we don’t discard those who don’t follow a conservative philosophy, what is there left to distinguish us from the democrats.
A. Please explain in detail exactly why you believe this.
B. Are saying that obama is a shoe-in if Palin continues her current road of "show me the money" instead of tossing her hat into the ring?
I think we and she both need to politely step to the side—and move on.
“I may have missed it but I have not seen her own words on why shes supporting a man who detests conservatives.”
She has said she ‘respects him’ and his policies. Maybe she just agrees with him. It’s difficult to know, and she’s not helping.
“Sarah Palin is NOT our only hope.”
Oh really? Then please explain to me, which other current potential candidate today has the charisma, popularity, fund-raising ability, accomplishments and star-power that Sarah Palin does?
Mitt Romney? ROMNEYCARE, among many other problems
Tim Pawlenty? Good, but not well-known, into E85 and a bit wishy-washy
Mike Huckabee? Social conservative but economic liberal
Paul Ryan? Good, but voted for TARP and the auto bailouts
Newt Gingrich? NY-23 and Scuzzy
Do ANY of the ones I just listed come anywhere close to the qualities that Sarah Palin has?
I DON’T THINK SO!!!!!!!!
She CANNOT be knocked because of ONE endorsement! She’s got the ability to bring America out of the darkness and stop the evil of the Obama regime!
You know what?
I support Sarah Palin...I paid to see her. I send her money.
I am crazy about her.
And guess what?
I see some of the same jerks here today running in their little pack like they do chastizing anyone for criticizing Sarah Palin for McCain or anything else THE EXACT SAME WAY THEY RODE HERD HERE OVER ANYONE WHO DARED CRITICIZE BUSH OVER AMNESTY....now tell me now 4 years later who had that right?
You folks make me sick with your little cliques here...like High School girls. I pray you don’t get the power here again they had before when they all ran off chasing Ivan’s siren call.
I agree that rabs and bobj are over the top in their vitriol for Sarah....no doubt about that
But you know what?
She better learn to deal with the heat.
I wish she would back off McCain too...he is no pal of ours’...and she dirties herself ...once woulda been enough.
Needs more caps-lock.
Are you saying we should squelch our right to question her intentions and reasoning (or lack thereof) or voice our concern and just simply accept her appeasement of McLoser who epitomizes what’s wrong with the GOP? Sorry, I disagree. That’s exactly what has gotten us in this RINO infested mess we find ourself in right now.
I read Sarah's book; I'm a fan of hers. I am not a fan of McCain being in politics.
The rising star, in my opinion, is Michele Bachmann. Sarah is placing herself as second fiddle.
“If we dont discard those who dont follow a conservative philosophy, what is there left to distinguish us from the democrats.”
I agree and YOU DON”T HAVE TO YELL AT ME!!!!!! ,-)
I disagree. The bigger the primary battle, the better.
We get a battle hardened candidate that is ready for Obama.
We get unity when it is over.
Issues are aired.
The public tunes out minor issues that could have been brought up fresh in a general campaign.
If Sarah can’t take the heat, she shouldn’t be in the race.
I think she can take it just fine. And she should.
Are you a Romney guy?
Actually she can, is and will be.
It is not obvious to me that Palin is the only one that can defeat whatshisname.
No indication Palin even wants the job.
Winning back the house and senate this November should be # one priority. If we can't do that all is lost.
There were a good number of RINO's in that 212. (You asked for a distinction--here's one).
This thread needs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-AdxjDGioc&NR=1
Well put, wardaddy!
I agree (now take a deep breath and take off the caps lock). I believe we need to pull together, that is what it is going to take to defeat and undo this admin’s fascism
There are things I dislike about every candidate, but unless they are a total RINO, I don’t bash them over every choice because now more than ever conservatives need a strong front. JMHO.
“A. Please explain in detail exactly why you believe this.
B. Are saying that obama is a shoe-in if Palin continues her current road of “show me the money” instead of tossing her hat into the ring?”
A. I believe that Sarah is the only one who can defeat Obama because I know she can. I have seen her speak at a rally. When I saw her speak, I saw a President in her. I saw someone who loves America with all her heart and will work to make it a great place again. I saw someone who doesn’t want political gain, but who will serve her country. I saw someone with genuine love and passion for America. It nearly brought me to tears.
I know intuition isn’t a really strong argument, but it is one, at least.
I also know of her true qualifications. She has more executive experience than Obama will ever have. I think that in 2012, people will be so tired of Obama that they will be begging for true reform.
She has FAR more support than people realize.
B. If Sarah Palin doesn’t enter and we get stuck with (God forbid!) Mitt Romney, Obama is a shoe-in. The Socialists attack Sarah so harshly because they KNOW she is the only one who can defeat Obama. They KNOW that she is a direct threat to their plans and that’s why they are trying to take her out.
Who else today has been attacked as harshly as Sarah Palin?
Hunter endorsed Huckabee
Tancredo endorsed Romney
DeMint endorsed Romney
Pawlenty endorsed McCain
Thompson endorsed McCain
Newt endorsed Scozzafava
Santorum endorsed Specter
Rubio endorsed Huckabee
Santorum endorsed Romney
Scott Brown endorsed Rommey
Ann Coulter endorsed Romney
Mark Levin endorsed Romney
Dick Cheney endorsed McCain
Thune endorsed McCain
Jindahl endorsed McCain
Huckabee endorsed McCain
Bachmann endorsed McCain/Palin
Ron Paul endorsed Chuck Baldwin
Paul Ryan endorsed McCain for President
Rick Perry (Governor-Texas) endorsed Rudy Guiliani
you are correct.
Thanks for demonstrating the lack of actual leadership in the Republican Party.
They say you are what you eat. But in politics you are who you endorse.
That said, I'm also among the apparent small minority of people who have never been a fan of Palin's so this is no surprise to me.
So then, according to you, we should just throw in the towel now. Got it.
Here is where you mess up. We have no candidates yet. Easy enough. We do not know who will enter and most all of them have some warts. I get to pick and choose what warts I can tolerate, not anyone else.
I really hate it when some of us are asked “who is your candidate, if it isn’t Palin, is it Romney, Paul”? uh as far as I know all of them have yet to say they are running.
How the hell do I know until I know who is running and how well they will do at campaign time.
Any of them have the right to run, so hey, I will wait to make a choice.
