‘Flip-flops like this’: Sarah Palin calls out Sen. Rubio for supporting amnesty
Twitchy ^ | Sunday June 23, 2012

Posted on 06/23/2013 12:04:00 PM PDT by Bigtigermike

Sarah Palin @SarahPalinUSA:

Politicians wonder why we can't trust them? Campaign flip-flops like this and carve-out bribes in the Amnesty... http://fb.me/2IsL1uspC

Palin’s tweet links to a story from TownHall.com detailing Sen. Marco Rubio’s (D-Fla.) flip-flop over amnesty for illegal immigrants.

During a debate with opponents Rep. Kendrick Meek and Gov. Charlie Crist, candidate Rubio argued that giving illegal immigrants an “earned path to citizenship,” which Crist, Sen. John McCain and former President George W. Bush had advocated, is basically amnesty.

Rubio, who won that 2010 election, is now the leading Republican in the U.S. Congress pushing for illegal aliens to be given the earned path to citizenship that he himself insisted was “code for amnesty” only three years ago

The Palin's personal life is just fine and NO ONE has damaged them, especially themselves.

I would say so.

You are clueless and making things up as they go! Sarah wasn’t involved in any coverage of the VP debate not had a meltdown on election night or anything else. She WASNT ‘almost fired from FOX — that makes no sense — almost fire? If she was fired then its strange for them to talk to her about coming back (That’s what Roger Ailes said himself) less than 6 months later!!!

You are either a troll or an hapless RINOS that loves Rubio and the Establishment to make up lies like this

She did in effect get fired from Fox News when her contract was not renewed.

That's not being fired when a contract is not renewed. And you don't know if Sarah is the one who didn't want to renew it. It was Ailes who came crawling back to her according to her demands! They NEED her, she doesn't need them!

This is the food chain from top to bottom. NWO=Newscorp=Rupert Murdoch=Roger Ailes=Tokyo Rove=Sarah Palin

Sarah is not in a position to make demands of a powerful media elite joined at the hip with the GOPe.

They do not need Sarah all that much, if they did they would feature her on prime time.

They are using her and she has the opportunity to use them a bit as well.

Using her Twitter to expose Rubio, shows that she will not be muzzled by them, but ultimately boys like Ailes land Rove have all the power because they determine when and where she will appear on Fox News and what will be the general topic of discussion.

Palin may be right on the issues, but she has been destroyed in her private life and in the past year, she helped them do further damage to her own reputation.

WTF are you talking about?

I remember when George Bush told us......see you at the signing. Made me want to spit every time I saw his face on tv.
I refused to vote for McCain because of his traitorous amnesty support. I will vote for noone who supports amnesty. If they are for amnesty they are against Americans.....period.

WRONG! She never sought them out and she can't be bought and they know it. They want viewership. After all, you say they can get anyone - so why SARAH?

They do not need Sarah all that much, if they did they would feature her on prime time.

DUH!! They don't want her in prime time - what's wrong with you.

have all the power because they determine when and where she will appear on Fox News and what will be the general topic of discussion.

That's not having power - Power is when you speak EVERYONE LISTENS and that's SARAH even when using her Twitter !

It used to be, we needed these illegals to do the jobs Americans "wouldn't" do; now, according to Marco and his amigos in the Gang of Ocho, it's to do the jobs Americans "can't" do.

Can't because Marco's Establishment rich-boy sponsors won't hire Americans. They'd have to pay real wages. Why do that when you can hire an illegal for so much less (illegally)?

This is one reason I believe that the penalty for hiring illegals should include jail time. No matter how big you make the fine, the Establishment boys will just keep doing it and passing the cost along to us.

I believe she chose to spend four solid years with her family, and let Obama make a mess of things.

Or more? I figured she wanted to wait until the last of the kids (except Trig, of course) was out of the house.

I realize that I am taking a nuanced position beyond the grasp of many on this forum.

I am on Sarah's side and I am very much not on the side of the GOPe and Fox News. The elites have done Sarah dirty.

Sarah could be a powerful media draw but she does not espouse the corporate media elite party line and no network other than Fox will hire her.

Since she doesn't march in lockstep with the GOPe and Tokyo Rove, Fox will hire her but never feature her on a topic such as Amnesty. If Amnesty becomes a done deal, we may see more of her.

When she wasn't renewed on Fox, she appeared on Good Morning America opposite a relaunch on the Today Show. She caused GMA to murder The Today Show in the ratings.

But the Disney Cartel who owns ABC has a political agenda and Sarah doesn't fit even though if she were to appear a couple of times a week on a network morning show, she would make them a consistent winner.

That is what I said. I did not say that she got fired. I said in effect she got fired.

That is called a nuance.

She did not get fired, but not renewing one's contract has the some effect.

In sports and show business it happens all the time because networks and sports ownership do not want to anger viewers and fans which pay the bills in media and sports.

It is called plausible deniability. Non-renewal gives them cleaner hands.

Reading and then posting requires a skill set. Posting without reading requires no skill set.

Anyone who reads before they post, can discern that I am firmly on the side of Sarah Palin and all that she espouses and I am firmly against Fox News and the GOPe for the way that both elites have done her dirty.

Whether Sarah was eventually renewed because she went begging on hand and knee to get her job back or whether they needed a token truthteller on Fox News is anyone's guess.

You sure paint some pretty pictures.

You went out of your way to declare her as fired while posting to Eva, and you described why she was fired and said that you didn't think it was for the single act of insubordination, but because of her not taking her talking points from Karl Rove, although she wasn't fired and you don't actually know why she left Fox news at all.

You then insulted freerepublic and freepers.

Great start, and that leaves out that you have a man "pleasuring" another.

If she got fired, why did they rehire her?

Fwiw, your idea of nuanced thinking seems to be guessing what happened (pretending you "know" works too), then claiming your (really pretty bad) guess is some kind of fact.

You might want to rethink the idee of your superiority before your next post...........

Oh my, aren't you full of your self!

Why even post here if the intelligence of the posters here doesn't meet your high Mensa type standards?

Sarah could be a powerful media draw...

When she wasn't renewed on Fox, she appeared on Good Morning America opposite a relaunch on the Today Show. She caused GMA to murder The Today Show in the ratings. That is called a nuance

Thanks again for informing us what a nuance is! Thank goodness you are here to edumacate us political and current event dummies. I'll bet it was your that figured out that Dan Rather fiasco and singlehandedly stopped Gore from stealing the election in 2000.

First you say that "Sarah could be a powerful media draw"--as if she isn't---And then you go on to say when she appeared on one of the Main Stream News morning shows, "She caused GMA to murder The Today Show in the ratings"

Yeah too bad she isn't a powerful media draw, imnagine what would have happened if that were true.

I am on Sarah's side and I am very much not on the side of the GOPe and Fox News. The elites have done Sarah dirty.

As are you with your clever little "nuances."

Don't worry, we are not smart enough to figure you out.

Ten days you have been here, and you want to train us? LOL!

I will address one of your points.

First you say that "Sarah could be a powerful media draw"--as if she isn't---And then you go on to say when she appeared on one of the Main Stream News morning shows, "She caused GMA to murder The Today Show in the ratings"

Of course she is a powerful media draw, that was the point.

This thread is about Sarah having to take Twitter to call our Rubio on Amnesty.

At the present time,no one is employing her media drawing power because she does not have the favored position on Amnesty which is held by ALL the media elites.

Fox News is scared of her power, that is why they have hired her back, and kept away from prime time and discussing Amnesty.

If Amnesty passes, I am sure that we will see a lot more of Sarah on the Fox News Channel and in prime time.

Fox News Channel has pulled out the stops for Amnesty.

Rubio appears almost exclusively on Hannity.

Bill O' Reilly threw in with Gang of Eight.

Huckabee gave an interview to the Washington Post endorsing amnesty.

And Sarah has to take to Twitter to take on Rubio, because NO ONE is taking on Rubio on the Fox News Channel at least during prime time.
