Clearly, Sarah has a good bit of regard for Santorum, and would sleep well knowing he was POTUS.

This was just shared tonight on Sarah Palin’s facebook. I had not ever seen it before so it was something I thought would be alright to share here. I don't understand why people are getting so upset and rude. I guess this maybe why she has not come right out to say, I endorse Newt because of the hate that she will receive. On her facebook page, people say to her, if you don't back Rick or Mitt, I will hate you. Newt supporters seem to be more respectful there while asking for her to help him against the media. The haters must have her in a dilemma. God Bless that lady.

Being here only a few months, you wouldn’t know that JR supported Huckabee when it came down to McCain, Huckabee and Romney.

But what is your source for how, or if Palin voted in the primary? I hope it isn’t the discredited Frank Bailey.

Based on Gingrich being known as one of the greatest fighters in conservative history.

I can’t imagine someone who lived through the history making 1994 conservative revolution, forgetting that incredible national onslaught against it’s leader, Newt Gingrich, until Palin, we had never seen anything like it.

I still have boxes of publications and newspapers from the time, the rage from the left was terrifying, people died, were destroyed, the federal government was killing people and burning them out in the Midwest, and in what had previously been “flyover country”, the heartland.
The left was sending a message to middle America, that they were not outside the reach of Government and the new policies. Middle America was to be taught that their God, and guns, and tax complaints, and conservative rebellion would not be tolerated, the 1990s became a dark period of open war by the hard left as led by the Clintons, and the conservatives led by Newt Gingrich.

The media was as radical as sharks smelling blood, and Newt as the opposition leader, was it’s biggest target.

I know Jim liked Huck. Me, too.

And who do you think Sarah voted for?

NOT the two RINOs, McLama & Rmoney - that’s for sure.

Btw, I LOVE Sarah Palin. And hope she runs in the 2020’s after Rick and Huck are through..

“newt is a tough fighter. The problem is, what is he fighting for? More status quo? Newt is against even modest cuts proposed by Paul Ryan”

That’s a lie, or you haven’t been paying attention. Newt is not against the Paul Ryan plan.

Please stop being so divisive. The target is Romney and Obama.

My target is an increasingly oppressive federal government. Electing Romney or Santorum won't accomplish a damn thing for achieving my goal.

You know, I hate to agree, but that’s exactly how I feel about it. If she didn’t have the guts to lead, then she needs to get the heck out of the way. I also find myself frustrated by the things she says in these interviews, making these hints, making measured, calculated comments. Newt has been all over the place giving pure policy wonk speeches and interviews, and she still says that no candidate is running a solution driven campaign that is offering what Republicans want? I just don’t get it, and I find it all quite irritating to even think about.

She voted for Mike in her primary. That’s better than an endorsement.

How do you figure that the most popular Governor in America, perhaps in history, who had an 83% approval at that moment, secretly making a personal private vote is better than a public, full endorsement?

“Based on what? Failure is not a great yard stick to use for future results. Does anyone want to actually beat Milt or is this all a game?”

That’s a good question you ought to ask about your own candidate. But you and I both know your support with him has nothing to do with his platform or anything he stands for.

To totally dismiss the history and accomplishes of Newt Gingrich is simply something I cannot fathom. It must be an extreme level of bias that basically has primed you just to be an attack robot against him. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a post by you that was actually positive about Saint Rick and explained WHY we ought to vote for him. Your retort is basically “Well Newt is an SOB”. It ends right there.

She needs to settle the issue. I don’t really like the way she is playing her supporters... and her last few quotes on Fox were to the effect, if there was a brokered convention, she would be glad to help - that is not how an honest, forthright person goes about things... let the others tear each other up, tear each other down, go through the rigors, lies and defamation of the campaign trail, and then I’ll waltz in, and take it... I really don’t like that, and I don’t know what it means exactly about Sarah. Maybe I am reading too much into it.. it really hurts me to say anything negative about her...

Part of being a leader is making enemies. Lots and lots of enemies, even among “friends”. If she doesn’t have the balls to deal with it, she ought to stop jerking us around and get out of the way. I know that’s a pretty crude way to put it, but it is what it is.

But, you know, I could simply be bigoted and frustrated here with the way this whole nomination process has gone. I’ve been disappointed so many times with so many “conservatives” that I might just be seeing it everywhere I go at this point.

The sooner this nomination process is over, the sooner I can have some mental sanity.

You and I are on the same exact page. This isn’t about beauty contests or cults of personality. It’s about fighting our main enemy, an oppressive federal government. Only Newt really has a platform that even begins to address it.

At this stage of the game, and until she does something concrete;

Sarah is doing something concrete. She isn't trying to promote a candidate, she is promoting a set of ideals. Isn't that your goal, too? It's the agenda and ideas that will save our nation(or destroy it, depending on if we succeed or fail), not any individual candidate.

All Sarah Palin is trying to do is get the campaigns focused on the proper solutions. As it stands now, they aren't except for Newt and he is being marginalized by the Establishment Elites WHO DON'T WANT ANY CONCRETE SOLUTIONS that returns power to the citizens.

Seriously you are trying to claim that a single individuals secret, anonymous vote in a caucus, is more important than the most popular Governor your state has ever had with 83% of the people in your state approving of her, endorsing your candidate?

We’ve really been over this quite a few times already. You just keep on doing what I say you will do. In response to anyone asking for a reason why we should vote for Saint Rick, your response is to call Newt a liberal, or a liar, or any other insult you can think of. Meanwhile, you couldn’t even defend his platform. The most you could muster was “Well, we can’t get any of that passed anyway.”

The way so many people handle this is really quite irritating.
