Romney advisors sniping at Palin?
The American Spectator ^ | 10/27/08 | The Prowler

Posted on 10/27/2008 7:08:49 AM PDT by acsuc99

"Mitt supposedly cares about Massachusetts, but won't even return phone calls asking for help," says a conservative working for Beatty in Boston. "It's a tough race, but the least he could do is help. He's showing his true colors." Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a "diva" and was going off message intentionally. The former and current Romney supporters further are pushing Romney supporters for key Republican jobs, including head of the Republican National Committee.

Romney was never my number 1, but I've always put him near the top, given the field of candidates this go around. However, I think the future of the party belongs to Palin and Jindal, or others who can carry a strong conservative message.

Romney isn't such a bad guy, but he leans in a Liberal Republican direction, and the GOP really needs to stop that nonsense. To the extent that Romney supporters are trying to prepare the ground and get positions of power for a future campaign, I would prefer that they be stopped.

Romney vs Palin is going to be an interesting battle. Romney needs to remember that many supported him simply to stop McCain, not because they thought he was the next Reagan.

Beatty will unfortunately lose. I voted for him (absentee since I am in CT for school) but doubt most in Mass. will be smart enough to vote Kerry out once and for all..... although, there are a few changes in the state that are giving me more hope

my guess is Romney doesn’t want to be involved not because of Palin but because he sees Beatty losing and doesn’t want to spend resources on a losing campaign. Could be wrong though.

Who cares about this crap right now?

We have an election to win. We have a country to save!

The Marxist Liberals want all of this infighting. Shall we disappoint them?

Agree. I have heard that Romney actually has performed the best of the ex GOP candidates in working for McCain’s campaign.

People should take very careful note of the names of the people who are the first rats of the ship they presume to be sinking in 2008. There is every reason to suspect they will do the same thing in 2010 and 2012.

Any Repulican candidate who does not want to be shivved in the back at the most crucial moment in a campaign would be wise to avoid these people in the future. They have demonstrated their MO. Frankly, for a lot of these guys, they are doing so for the second or third time.

If Romney had been chosen, at least he would have been more conversant with the economic issues foremost in the minds of the public right now. McCain never was my first choice, but that’s who we’ve got, and I support him and Palin over the Marxist Obama.

This seems to be the latest attempt by the left/media to divide and conquer the McCain/Palin camp from within. Don't believe a word of it. It's part of their kitchen sink strategy.

I was against Romney from the get go - he is not a conservative, he is not a team player and he is arrogant. If he is truly “conservative,” why be against Palin? She is probably the most conservative candidate that has run for VP or Pres since Reagan.

He helped raise money for Planned Parenthood and supported gay rights until it was time to run for president. He supported a bail out bill in Michigan during the primaries before it was popular. He enacted government run health care, that pays for abortions, in MA. But, he was so much better than Huckabee according to our supposed conservative leaders.

What a joke.

Romney would be polling at 30% or so right now with all the anger towards corporate CEOs. Every person laid off by a company he “turned around” would be spouting off in ads against him.

The sad part about all this is that we are seeing obvious jockeying for position with an eye towards 2012. The underlying assumption among the GOP here is that McCain is headed towards a loss.

We are not seeing anything of this sort on the Dem side, not even from Hillary. They are behaving more disciplined as if a win for them is inevitable.

I call BS again! The mainstream media are showing their desperation big time, each day fabricating new articles about the McCain/Palin campaign.

Romney is campaigning for McCain, today.

Ignore the media; ignore the fabricated polls. Full steam ahead to Nov 4.

I don't believe this story for a second... Funny how every other rumor is shot down (MSM trying to plant the seeds of division), but as soon as Romney is brought into the mix, many of these fools jump on it, in a rush to blast Mitt. They have no shame...

That being said... anyone that supports the other side at this point (Powell, Barr, Pressler, Noonan, etc) will be SKUM from this day forward... If Romney is engaging in that, I would never support him for anything in the future...

As I said, though. I highly doubt this

These Mitt-haters are DESPICABLE and VILE...

They assume this is true, even thought they see the LIES from the MSM every day... Even with the constant support Mitt has provided for McCain and Palin...

Just disgusting.

More CRAP. I did a search on Mitt yesterday, he was in Louisiana campaigning for republicans last Thursday and Friday. BTW, I had to search with Yahoo to find that, didn’t show up on goooogle.

It seems to me MCCAIN has not used him. I watched Mitt side step that a few weeks ago when they assumed johnboy would be working with Mitt, Mitt said his staff had been working with johnboy’s staff.

And Mitt’s staff are republicans too, why the heck shouldn’t they want jobs in a pubbie administration.

Yes I love Mitt. I love Sarah too.

I will withhold my thoughts on johnboy. I am voting for Sarah.
