I couldn’t agree more and have said the same. Mostly the left has attempted to ruin Palin and in the same vein some on the right are attempting to ruin Romney. They are our two brightest stars. And if they keep it up we’ll lose the next election.
We agree and strongly, about those who turned against Sarah.
Kathleen Parker, a snob who I have never liked, is a regular on Chris Matthews and she did it to impress her liberal frineds. It’s the same for David Brooks who in addition, sounds like he has converted to the left. This had nothing to do with Romney and I’m tired of people saying so.
Any pundits supporting Romney who then attacked Palin acted on their own, and in most cases for reasons that had nothing to do with Romney.
Why would you then be ashamed of working so hard in the Illinois primary for Romney?
Would any of the ROmneyBOTS share with FReeRepublic a picture of that chair their Master sent his minion?
Hey, I like Romney. I like Palin.
But I don’t like the unChristian itchy ear crap on this thread. I love facts and it turns out that Nicole Wallace and Rick Davis were the ones giving out inside information designed to hurt Palin. They were the scoundrels and none of them had connections to Romney.
Any criticism that was made from others like Kevin Madden was mild and public knowledge.
You guys are just throwing a fit. It is interesting to see that Romney is leading in the Newsweek for 2012. I guess if he was way behind then you guys wouldn’t be throwing a fit.
Anyway, go Palin/Jindal 2012 because I can’t see liars smear a good man like Romney again.
No one who describes ROmney’s lies, fake badges, betraying
the GOP, weekly metamorphosis, coverup of the BIGdig,
fascist HillaryCARE=RomneyCARE, repeat use of criminal
illegal aliens, stabbing other GOP candidates
(in so many ways), and bad socialistic governing is a ‘liar’.
They are Patriots, as far as can be seen.
Not a Mitt hater, I voted for the guy in the NY primary. But I will never do so again under any circumstances.
You are way over-reaching to try and associate Romney with something that has NOTHING to do with him.
Focus on the Palin issue. It’s been proven it has been Wallace and Davis. Now, that you have been beaten, I guess you guy to some old issues. I think that technique is called distraction. But, hey we are all accountable to Jesus Christ in the next life. I want to go out honorably. You can too, but again it’s your choice.
Do you know the difference between Romney and Romney paid staff? I know some of his sleezy paid consultants personally and he was advised not to hire them but he did anyway. He knew how sleezy they were as the person they came from recommended they not be hired after they had tanked him.
Time to move on and not support ANY candidate that ran in the primary. We need new blood and these attacks on Sarah are not working with a lot of us. You are going to start seeing more names come out — big mistake!
To lump everyone together in a "Team Romney" when most Romney team members supported Gov. Palin wholeheartedly is unfair and painting with far too broad a brush.
Additionally, there is no evidence linking Romney or his people to this campaign infighting which, instead, points to former Bush WH people, Nicolle Wallace and Steve Schmidt. Should we blame Bush for this too then? Team Bush is to blame? That's silly. These people are respsonsible for their own actions regardless of who they worked for in the past.
Nicolle Wallace and Steve Schmidt, the McCain campaign handlers involved in the infighting and leaking, did not work for Romney.
Instead of misdirecting all of this anger towards an innocent person (or his team), we should be trying to find out if Nicolle Wallace's actions were mere negligence or sabotage.
Nicole's Knifework (David Frum Identifies the anti-Palin Leaker)
Well stated, redgirl. Let’s get on track with actual names and actual facts rather than the innuendo and far-reaching offered by the Romney-bashers.
This all strikes me as overblown cheap gossip anyway.
Kathleen Parker has never been hired by Romney — she’s merely a writer/journalist (and journalists deserve no credibility). So how can you blame Romney for her antics? It’s more than a stretch to implicate Romney had anything to do with bashing Palin — but then distorting truth is rampant of late.
The Doll/Book company? (See where and where?)
Good On Ya..the disinformation on this thread is nauseating.
Madden hasn't been working for him since he dropped out at CPAC right after Super Tuesday. This is akin to the crowd that thinks Dick Cheney is still running Haliburton.
Until we get names, its just rumor mongering. I remembering discussing the possibility of fomer Bush aides before in a thread over a month ago with you. If you produce the actual names it will bolster your argument from just heresay.
I am proud that I voted for Romney in the primaries and Palin in the final vote. Palin won the states Romney won (Alaska, Utah, wyoming, Montana, North Dakota) States that went for McCain or Huck (Iowa, Florida etc) Obama won. The conservative movement needs both Romney and Palin. And a heck of a lot of others.
So many FReepers this go around seemed so intent on tearing each other's candidate down. Most of us would have been happy with Fred, Duncan, Mitt. (The day before super Tuesday 74.9% of Freepers said they supported Mitt) I've openly criticized Huck and McCain (until he got the nod) and even occasionally Keyes and Paul. I have to admit today though that I'd be much happier with a President Paul, Keyes, Tancredo, Gilmore etc. Even President Huck (populism and all) than Pres. Obama.
There isn't just a battle for the soul of the GOP, which is important, but a battle for the soul of America. Though I think there is hope. If even Commufornia can pass Prop 8 (Proud to say my brother in CA worked on it) then there is hope for the US.
It wasn’t Romney people. That is a plain lie. However, they may have had connections to Bush.
Would a FR RomneyBOT share with FReeRepublic a picture of that chair your Master sent his minion?
Oooh, you've got Romney now. He sent Schmidt a chair! That proves that it is Romney behind these Palin attacks. What does it matter that Schmidt was actually in the employ of McCain? Romney tried to hire Schmidt a year ago, you see, so Schmidt has been a secret Romney minion.
From your link, it looks like Romney is one of the few that Schmidt is not associated with, but it was Romney that sent him the chair!
Congrats, among the Romney-haters at FR, you are bidding for the tin foil crown.
Myth Romney: "You will embrace this attack on Gov. Palin and her children using Jindal's, McCain's and Huckabee's names
like our attacks on McCain and Thompson using Huckabee's name. Support it, from our lands in
the north using the fake law enforcement badges we fabricated. I will gain GOP favor by condemning it and
ordering it opposed from our lands in the south with Fox News and the MSM. Whichever way
the tide runs, we will rise."
Romney: Make all the promises you have to...
"In 2006, while Romney was chairman of the National Republican
Governors Association - a group dedicated to electing more
Republican governors - his own hand-picked Republican successor
as governor lost badly to the Democrat, despite the fact that Republicans
have held the governorship in Massachusetts since 1990. Romney largely
ignored the Massachusetts elections and spent most of the time
during the campaign out of state building his presidential campaign.
He came back and publicly campaigned for the Republican candidate
the day before the general election!
Locally, this is a rebuke to Mitt Romney and checking out within six months
after being elected and having accomplished almost nothing,
[Jim] Rappaport [former chairman of the state Republican Party]."

I know that McCain refused to call a spade a spade, but I do remember hearing Sarah Palin use the word “socialism” several times to describe what an Obama administration would bring. If that is fundamentally different than calling him a socialist, then I stand corrected.
” You may also want to consider Nina Easton of Fox Panel. Her husband was a muckity-muck in the Romney campaign. Another one who couldnt wait to sink her claws into Governor Palin.”
Thanks for that insight. I ws wondering why she turned negative so quickly.
Also interesting election night during the panel discussion to see real fear in her eyes, and her discussion of President Elect Obama. I think it finally sank into her and Juan Williams that we really don’t know who Obama is.
But Yes, we can ....... ( At least we may not hear that again ) as now it time for “ Give me Mine “ which is what his loyal supporter will start to chant......
” She was pulled from her element into a media firestorm and delivered almost every single time.
She will grow into handling the media..its called lack of inside the beltway experience, its not stupidity.”
68 days. That’s all she had on the national scene.
Show me another person who would have accomplished what she did in the same time.
I think she may have made it a closer election head to head with Obama.....
After all to watch the coverage that’s what they tried to do pit her against Obama to cover for Barry’s inexperience.
Guess what it succeeded on two fronts. He was elected, and they got enough damage to offset her in their minds for future elections.
“I used to respect Mormons.”
I think that’s a bit harsh. Remember, Beck’s Mormon too.
Well duh! Romney wants the nomination in 2012. He'll do whatever he has to do in order to get it, as will every other Republican hopeful. And that includes doing what they can to sabotage their opponents.
American Girl has been very critical of long-time Romney supporter Kathleen Parker (see here and here), a Republican, from the National Review for her consistent ridicule of Palin instead of criticising the Democrat ticket. Parker has proven to be a putrid, vile opportunist in this election. Parker has only proven to me that she would stab my dog if it helped her personal interests.
is this the "Parker/Spitzer" Parker?
You got it one!
