yeah and Rand Paul, sean duffy, rick perry, and there will be countless others. Some I will agree with some I won’t but it doesn’t matter because I agree 100% with her message of smaller government, lower taxes, strong national defense and good morals.

She could endorse a democrate and I wouldn’t care. It is the message that she and only she is singing on the national stage that Im signing up for.

And she is 100% correct here too. take over the party and kick the rino’s out like Crist in FL going independent lets see how that works out for him. the center is not a base.

Thank you for posting that.

I want Palin to run, I believe she will win if she does. I want her to be my president, but even if she isn’t, I will respect and support her.

Endorsing McCain and campaigning for him won’t destroy her or seriously wound her.

Correct! This is her Mulligan. Intelligent people know why she is doing this. If J.D. wins she will wait out the requisite mourning period for her friend and benefactor(/s), a period of time lasting the grand total of a few microseconds, and then feel free enough to jump on the J.D. battlewagon.

What will make my head explode will be the effort by Juan to put words in her mouth proclaiming his Magna Conservita. It will be sad to see her reciting his "conservative credentials" looking like a political prisoner or hostage reciting some loony's manifesto that is obviously not from the heart while the loony is holding the gun just off camera. Can she pull it off without looking like a Stepford wife, or does she intend to do exactly that with the words "I Don't Mean A Word Of This" written on her hand to be accidentally picked up by the camera.

I would bet that most of the Tea Partiers are already active in grassroot politics. The problem the Republican party has is in its leadership at the top. They think that they can run roughshod over the people in the trenches, and that creates a massive disconnect which makes the whole party seem disorganized. The libs eat it up and encourage it at every turn.

Palin should know that we already are in charge but we don't have the courage to admit it to ourselves. When we find it the libs and the country-club-rinos will not know what hit them.

If Sarah just speaks to the good thing that McCain has done, and does not embellish, I will give her a pass. If Sarah starts making comments about McCain’s strong stance against illegal immigration then I will even lose faith in her. However, Sarah is not stupid, so I think she will be able to walk the tightrope well enough for my applause.

What I don’t understand is why Romney is endorsing McCain.What I don’t understand is why Romney is endorsing McCain.

Remember Mitt's "Me, too!" moment in the primary debates? Then he was reacting to Fred Thompson (ironically, the only one at that debate to show any sign of life); now he's reacting to Palin.

Yep...and endorsing McCain is a great start!

I bet she’d love to not have been put into the situation of having to endorse the man who put her on the national stage. This was a tough call for Sarah; no doubt.

It is funny how on one side some chastise Palin for her McInsane affiliation, and the others chastise her prominence since. Me, I basically see her as something the rest of the GOP doesn’t see her as, and that’s a patsy. And hopefully, that’s all she’ll be. Let her take the current GOP punching in the media, but push someone like Paul Ryan or whomever as an actual candidate in 2012...

I wish people would think that through a bit more...there is no way she could have done anything else and stayed in politics with any clout.

Precisely.

And quite frankly, you'll find your self repeating that over and over again to some of the more politically inept or willfully blind on this board, who have no concept of how our political system works, or how deals must be made in order to win nominations and elections.

You better get use to it because Sarah Palin will never throw McCain under the bus. He is a war hero and that is why Palin will stand with him. Like she said, people are human and will disappoint you but don’t lose sign of the big picture and that is 2010.

Romney is another George Bush the First. If you want another Rino in the WH pic Romney. Romney has a bunch of advisers to help him with his intellect curiosity.

T-Paw is a one term governor with no foreign policy and a bunch of advisers to advise him on his “intellect curiosity” tooo.

Another governor has hired a bunch of advisers to advise her too on her intellecdt curiosity but she is the one being attacked by Jeb Bush and others.

You would think the way Jeb’s brother was trashed he would know better.

Why is Jeb Bush throwing mud at Sarah Palin.

It is time the Bushes follow the path of the Kennedy’s.

Just go away if you think it is your job to trash.

YOUR TIME HAS PASSED SO GO AWAY !

As far as I know her only sin was endorsing McCain, which despite it being a bit incongruous with her political philosophy, is also very understandable. I forgive her, and so do millions more. Ind I respectfully disagree with you regarding her support going away.

Now, if she were to endorse Patty Murray, Barbara Boxer, and Henry Waxman, well then, that would be a different story! Then I’d have to agree that a lot of her current support would indeed go away. But over this one shot item that she really had no choice over, no, it won’t happen. ;>)

We conservatives are going to find it almost impossible to find candidates, that have a chance to win, that agree with all areas of conservatism.

The Constitution YES! YES! YES!

Fiscal responsibility ... YES! YES! YES!:

Defense ... yes:

Freedom of owning guns and self protection ... Yes:

Less taxation ... Yes:

Less government intrusion on businesses, and individuals, ... Yes:

Abortion not encouraged or allowed by law ... hopefully Yes: Doubtful though.

Immigration limited and enforced ... hopefully ... Yes but doubtful:

Homosexuality issues ... just say no: Doubtful:

Health care issues ??????: We say no!:

Social security issues ... do not give to those that did not pay into the system ... Yes:

UNIONS ... curtail, keep ‘right to work’ strong and viable ... ????????

Smaller government ... YES!:

Reduce the national debt by 25% at least and keep reducing it year by year ... Yes but doubtful.

Marriage is between a man and a woman. No other ...: yes but ??????????

ECONOMY!!! drastic actions needed to encourage new businesses ... Yes. A must.

Global warming ... NO: ?

Drill Baby Drill ... develop America's energy resources. ...YES! YES!

and so on ...

Agreement by a candidate on the majority of these issues is hard to find. Which is why I AM FOR SARAH.

The main things are the main things, and She is for all the main things. And has demonstrated it. MO.

Father help us in our day, in Jesus name, amen.

I have said it many times. Anybody including Obama, the Far Left, RINO’s, Mittbots, Ron Paul supporters etc who try to claim that Sarah Palin is not anything but a Reagan conservative is barking up the wrong tree. You would have a better chance to claim she was a right-wing extremist nutjob or celebretard imho, which is not true either.

Let me tell it straight from a Palin supporter. John McCain brought her to the prom dance and made her the belle of the ball when prior to it she did not even have a ticket. In politics or in life in general this is called payback, which is an acknowledgement that you would not be where you are without someone’s help or guidance.

I’ll give you an example of payback. In 1939 William Holden was a fledgling young actor starring in the movie Golden Boy with famous actress Barbara Stanwyck. Holden was nervously flubbing his lines in rehearsal and essentially was this close to being fired by the movie studio. Barbara Stanwyck went to bat for him, insisted he would be outstanding if given a chance and defended him to the studio heads to the hilt and helped him during off hours to rehearse his lines and as a result he managed to give an excellent performance, and remember Stanwyck also had to memorize her own lines as well. Holden knew how kind and generous Stanwyck was to him. As history shows Holden went on to become a superstar actor, but he never forgot Stanwyck. Whenever he could he would take the opportunity to praise her for saving his career and on the anniversary of Golden Boy’s release each year, he would send Stanwyck a single red rose to commemorate that. Holden never forgot Stanwyck.

And Palin will never forget John McCain. Having said that, as Holden moved on with his career without Stanwyck, once McCain win the GOP primary and wins re-election as Senator from Arizona, she can also move on after 2010 with her own career as the standardbearer for the Tea Party movement and the conservative cause.

She understands conservative 3rd parties only serve to elect democrats. The only REALISTIC solution is to take back the Republican party.

"And while McCain may not have done anything else for conservatives, he did introduce the nation to Sarah."

THAT's what the tin-hat folk who fashion themselves as being the "real grass roots" don't understand - without McCain, Sarah would still be a popular gov. from the land up North!

It is important to understand what came first and it was McCain's choice (or at least he allowed it) to place a powerful voice for real conservatism in the GOP.

Sarah has said more than once, that she and McCain don't agree on a "number of issues" but she acknowledged his patriotism and service to his country!"

End of subject.

The point is, she will at minimum go on record as having held her nose and boosted McCain through whatever crazy ideas he may have between now and November (such as unneeded, Big-brother style, European-style regulations on food supplements). All that will come under the aura of the label “statesman” that she is using, even though “snakesman” may be more like it.

If she does not run for office but chooses to boost another candidate for President, this hangs a question mark over the wisdom of her endorsement. If she runs for office, one wonders what circumstances would move her to euphemize past a smelly situation once in office.

I’m not agreeing with the people who say that Mitt’s any better. She may prove to be “least worst” of all viable candidates for all we know, and may be worth holding our nose and voting for.

I love Palin, but I’d be lying if I did not say her endorsement of McCain leaves a bad taste in my mouth. He’s a PROGRESSIVE and any endorsement of such, is not a good thing.

Although I get the whole “political favor” thing, I think some of the endorsements are a bit overboard considering the goals we have to take over and oust the PROGRESSIVES. In other worse, endorsing one, does not help the cause. Esp. one like McCain. He needs to just retire, IMO.

But I truly hope it does not hurt Sarah. Many do not like McCain and his whole political persona and just being associated with him, may give her “guilt by association” or at the least, make her true political agenda questionable.

As for the Tea Party taking over the GOP - damn straight. THEY need to come to US!!! Bring back conservative, constitutional values. AMEN!!!

He was for amnesty, supported the eco fascists, and had an open borders dual citizen advisor. The only good thing he did was to pick Sarah Palin for VP. The Mccain camp then got their panties inb a twist when her prescence on the ticket started closing the gap..
