Some Republican leaders prefer not to discuss Sarah Palin


In the latest instance of a high-profile GOP member taking a passing swipe at the party's 2008 vice presidential candidate, former Massachusetts governor and GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney jokingly dismissed Sarah Palin’s inclusion on Time’s list of influential people in an interview broadcast Sunday.

He asked, was “the issue on the most beautiful people or the most influential people?”

No, Mitt. I’m sorry to say this, but that’s just you.

Yeah, she made some off-the-cuff gaffes during the campaign that made it appear that she had not thought things through completely.

I hope she clarifies her stances and then articulates them well over the next couple of years.

It wasn’t the “compliment to her beauty” that bothers people. It was his implication that he believed she belonged on the most beautiful list, but not the most influential, that was so tasteless.

If Mitt had joked that she belonged on both lists, nobody would mind.

It is a stupid article. Romney did not dis Palin. Some of the comments on this thread are way over the top. If people in the Party can not even be civil to each other how in the H... do you expect to win anyone's vote? I know, I know ,you only want the perfect.

Romney will not run,

I don't what the atmosphere is on the planet that you live on but Mitt never stopped running, he is campaigning harder than anyone else at this time.

"These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense," Romney said. "They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people." - Gov. Romney 2004

Romney the gun-grabbing liberal can KMA.

Reading is not your strong suit? The post I replied to mentioned Mormons. For the record.

I opposed Romney. I still do. But to oppose him for an imagined jab at Palin that he did not make is just silly.

Well, so sorry if we “alienate” the handful of Mitt voters here.

Where Mitt really failed to even try to in the gap was his reaction to hearing the Masshole Supremes saying there oughtta be a law for gay marriage. He not only didn’t wait for the legislature to do something, he took it on himself to bastardize the process. Now ask anyone at Mass Resistance and we see what the consequences in the Masshole schools have been. Hint: it’s much worse than “King and King.”

He'll never get into the temple that way.

Excellent point.

No, nitwit, and I didn’t go for Romney, but stop and think before you speak.

My take as well. I think Palin could beat Romney in a statewide contest in Utah, but he cannot make a joke (albeit a poor one) without the hate Romney cabal going ballistic.

Earth to Moonbats: Read the whole damn article! Eric Cantor and others were exchanging good-natured jabs. Some of the jokes were good, some of them were flat. Let's stop taking ourselves too seriously.

I did. I called it a purse fight. Which seems about right.
