Sarah Palin: Newt Gingrich Is Toughest Fighter in the Race. Sarah knows toughness (FR nod)
Human Events ^ | February 19, 2012 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 02/19/2012 6:35:02 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin discussed why she hasn't endorsed a candidate yesterday on FOX Business Network. Sarah said Newt Gingrich was the toughest fighter in the race.

"You know that is what I'm saying today. I'm saying that David because Newt has learned through that school of hard knocks. And you know that is where character is shaped and that is where character is revealed. In times of controversy and conflict. Not at a time of convenience and comfort. I see that in Newt that he has learned, that he has been sharpened and strengthened through all of that and I think that would bode well for what it is that we need in terms of fighting that Obama machine that we'll be up against."

Humans are purified in the crucible of calling, experience and personal strength.

Churchill is a modern example.

Samson is an ancient one.

They don’t always shine until the moment arrives...

Nothing says true grit like a sweater vest and public displays of religion.

Yep, that sweater vest is scary only to conservatives know realize how that’s going to sell in the general election. Sheesh.

Which brings up a question in my mind: besides the singer from Mega Death who thinks Santorum should be President because he has a sick daughter, where are all the great Santorum endorsers?

I mean, Newt’s got some impressive enemies but he has some damned impressive backers too. Santorum? Not so much.

There is something very odd about this video. It says it was uploaded to YouTube on the 17th, but in the video, Sarah Palin says there are 46 states left to go — so this seems to be the interview she did after Florida and before Nevada, which was several weeks ago.

BTW, I’m not disputing this, just wondering why this aired yesterday with her comment about 46 states remaining. After all, she’s been saying this for a while, she said it to Susteren back in early February.

The Megadeath singer actually didn’t endorse Santorum at all. It was a misunderstanding.

“I mean, Newt’s got some impressive enemies but he has some damned impressive backers too. Santorum? Not so much.”

I noticed that also when I saw a photo lineup up Santorum’s endorsers. The list reads like the Who’s Who of people we don’t care that much about. Mind you, I don’t dislike Malkin or Levin, but it’s not quite as formidable a list as Newt’s.

I can’t think of anyone endorsing Santorum except some in the conservative media - until DeWine jumped aboard this weekend.

Remember 2010? When much of the GOP leadership sat on their behinds and convinced each other Obama was too powerful to be defeated? Governor Sarah Palin ran around all over the country raising huge sums of money, fighting Obama and the Left, and generally supporting good Conservative candidates. And we had a huge win. Many others were involved too, but Gov. Palin was certainly instrumental in helping our side gain a whopping 600+ seats.

And still, much of the ‘smart GOP leadership’ won’t listen to her. And people here bash her.

She had to choose between being governor and going through tough times with her family, and possibly having to declare bankruptcy, to fight off frivolous ethics charges put forth by Commies in Alaska, or resign her position to deal with those allegations, and write a book to help pay with dealing with them. I think she chose wisely. She still has her family, some dignity, and the support of many of millions of Americans that came to love her shortly after finding out about her life and who she is.

Santuckabee-Huckatorum would be an awful ticket. Two phony conservatives hoping that if they stress a small handful of issues loudly enough, folks will over look their big government tendencies.

You can’t argue with idiots like that, who argue from a sound byte 23 IQ point of view. Clearly, Palin’s resignation was a brilliant move for her, her family, her state and her party.

I call that leadership. The nabobs can’t get that through their very thick skulls to their very tiny brains.

Gov Palin was crucified because she was a blue collar mayor who became governor and attacked the ruling elite families of Alaska. CEO class and political families do not like to be attacked and their crony schemes broken. So she got smart, why be the target when you can be the kingmaker and make lots of money on the side (TV show, book deals, speeches etc). I agree with you, she made the right move to use a different medium to affect the nations politics. This is call using the terrain to your advantage based on your own assets and vulnerabilities. I call that smart combat. Anyone who wants to spend 1 billion dollars campaigning for a job that pays 500,000 dollars is nuts.

Newt is a former adulterer. Rick is a continue sweater vest wearer. Get back to me when you have an original thought in your head. I won’t wait up for you.

*************************

I *think* she means contests. Being that there are only 4 with bound delegates thus far. NH, SC, FL, NV. The others will be allocated at the convention.

I am also starting to wonder about things being decided at convention— not brokered. Can the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, U.S. Virgin Islands somehow come into play, if things are tight????

The GOP-e is really creeping me out.

Would we want to call this her “that” speech? Couldn’t resist. Twelve, count ‘em, twelve, in three sentences. ;)

Newt was a “former” adulterer - until he did it again. And his version of “repentance” is to pursue “annulment” via the Catholic Church. That isn’t someone who is sorry /repentant of their past.

You clearly have no eye for talent and no idea what an election for President is all about. Have you ever contemplated just what it is about your life that makes you so obsessed with this? I think you need to get to the bottom of that for your own sake.
