Palin-McCain Visit Starting To Take Shape
Fox ^ | 3/11/10 | Jake Gibson

Posted on 03/11/2010 8:47:43 PM PST by pissant

Former Republican vice presidential nominee and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will be in Arizona the last weekend of March as part of Senator John McCain's re-election campaign. Details of that trip are now starting to come into focus.

McCain and his 2008 running mate will host a campaign rally in Tucson on the afternoon of Friday March 26th, before holding a high dollar fundraiser at the Arizona Biltmore later that evening. On Saturday the 27th they will hold another rally in Phoenix.

For the fundraiser, $2500 gets you into the dinner as well as an hour-long pre-dinner VIP reception, including a photo opportunity with McCain and Palin.

Tickets to the dinner alone run for $500, or $1000 for preferred seating.

The fundraiser will be at the same hotel resort where the McCain campaign spent the 2008 Super Tuesday. Ultimately the McCain-Palin campaign also chose as The Biltmore as the site for election night in 2008.

Palin is just one of many big name endorsements McCain has received lately in his GOP senatorial primary race against former Arizona congressman J.D. Hayworth.

Of course she does... But this is Pissant’s dead horse, he has to beat it, just like he did Fred last time...
What’s this, 6 articles about Palin endorsing McCain that pissant has posted. The first one was news, all the rest is pissant hatred.

Imagine the trashing she would get if she were a “traitor” to the man who put her in the nat’l spotlight.

I F-ing hate McCain and all he has stood for but he finally did one thing in his slimy career, and that was to introduce a true conservative and human being to the national spotlight.

Oh, with every one, eh? Oooh, that sounds so dramatic. So just how many joint appearances has she had? Did she weaken herself with every joint appearance during the 2008 Presidential campaign? If so, just imagine how big her lead would be now as the GOP Presidential favorite in 2012! LOL

And we all know that should he get through the primaries, he and his bimbo daughter will be trashing Palin. Meghan has already hinted at it. Palin should insist on reading that idiot’s book before she stands beside that two-faced beast...Of coruse, it’s not being released until the end of August...conveniently AFTER the AZ primary.

Not necessarily. These are insider RINOs we're talking about. The crowd energy just won't be the same.

I agree. Look where “loyalty” and “collegiality” between congressmen, rather than loyalty as public servants to principles and constituents has gotten us. Does principle trump nothing anymore?

This is easier than me trying to explain it:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arminianism

Basically, it’s the majority theological school of thought within the church while Calvinism is the Biblical view. ;-)

Look, I do not support people that aid and abet political frauds, criminals etc. If your candidate is aiding this type of activity to any degree, he would not get my support. You however can vote for who you like.

Here is Palin’s flip flop on McCain...

“...Some Alaska Republicans are conflicted over McCain, including Gov. Sarah Palin. They like his maverick reputation and military background but not his opposition to drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

“She said she’d like to support McCain but felt she couldn’t at this particular time because of his stand on ANWR,” said the governor’s spokeswoman, Sharon Leighow.”

Source ADN February 3, 2008 Section: Main Edition: Final
Page: A14

Then at the Govenor’s convention things changed ..

“...Palin is quick to note that she has not spoken to McCain or other national Republican leaders about the prospect. But it certainly came up when she was in Washington two weeks ago for a meeting of the National Governors Association. There, she rubbed elbows with other governors whose names have been bandied about for VP: Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, a Republican, and Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano, a Democrat.

Everyone treated it lightly, Palin said, including a former Texas governor who himself made the transition to the White House.

“We all had a meeting with President Bush and he said, ‘Look at all these vice presidents sitting here,’ “ Palin said in an interview last week. “Because Pawlenty was sitting next to me, and then Janet Napolitano was sitting on my other side.”

Ultimately, Palin said, she understands that while flattering, the buzz is less about her than it is about what she represents to the Republican Party.

“I recognize that any of the buzz surrounds the fact that I happen to fit a demographic that is appealing to the ticket right now,” Palin said. “That’s the reality. Again, I happen to fit a demographic at a time that the Republican Party needs to get with it and change and progress and allow others to be a part of public service. It’s gender, it’s age, it’s kind of the maverick being from the outside. It’s a combination of things.”

Source: ADN March 9, 2008 Section: Main Edition: Final Page: A1

McCain never changed his stance on ANWR and to this day he never has.

Palin brushed off the prospect of becoming V.P., however in her book, she states:

“..I had met with McCain in Feburary of 2008 at the National Governors Association winter meeting in D.C. During a reception at the JW Marriott Hotel, Todd and I had spoken with the senator and Cindy.....”

The gist is; that meeting is when McCain was looking at Palin... And Palin knew she was being looked at.

And now Palin has lost her political swing by endorsing McCain and she went against what she said earlier when it came to McCain not being for ANWR.

She led Alaskan voters to think one thing, but she did another.

Gun,

Yes, every one. Whether it is her endorsing him or actually appearing in person. I’m dramatic? C’mon....so you think these appearances/connections with the “take all your vitamins” RINO are helping?? Really?

And, yes, I do think that, overall, even though it’s how she made her appearance on the national scene. Ironically, that same connection to McCain and that campaign is her biggest obstacle....hopefully not her albatross.

“loyalty and gratefullness does not trump fidelity to principle.”

Erm, aren’t loyalty and gratefulness principles, too?

How many people has BO thrown under the bus when they began to hurt him politically?

Palin has said before “if I die politically, I die, but I’m going to do what I think is right.”

IMO, this is another one of those instances.

This is FREERepublic, and I guess all opinions staying within the rules framework are welcome, but maybe you could spend more time trying to convince people in AZ why they should vote for JD Hayworth and less time being a tool for the Progressives who want to see Palin crash and burn.

You call yourselves “conservatives” sitting there at your keyboards waiting like vultures for another negative story on Palin so they can jump in with as much enthusiasm as a Kamikaze with a Flat-Top off the port wing.

Palin is not the enemy. They reside in D.C. and the war is on.

Thanks for that list.
Where are all the hit piece FR post on those other names? Some on FR (a small minority) have such a vapid dislike and even hatred of Sarah Palin, and for no apparent reason other than believing the lies the mainstream media tells them, or from what they read on other FR post. Feeding off each others hatred. I cannot comprehend their close to insane antipathy towards her.

OK, let me refine my post.

Fidelity to constitutional principles when voting or supporting a political candidate, should always trump loyalty and gratefullness.
