Palin Wraps McCain in Tea Party Movement
FoxNation.com ^ | 3/27/2010 | N/A

Posted on 03/27/2010 5:51:59 AM PDT by raybbr

Two years ago, John McCain transformed Sarah Palin overnight from an obscure first-term Alaska governor into a national celebrity when he picked her as his vice presidential running mate.
 
Now Palin is repaying the favor, putting her prestige on the line in an effort to help the four-term Arizona senator overcome his toughest re-election challenge ever.
 
The two campaigned together Friday for the first time since they lost the presidential race in 2008.
 
At the first of two rallies this weekend, Palin pumped up Tea Partiers, invoking the cause of the first Tea Party in 1773.
 
"Remember it was the Freedom Fighters and those who protested tyranny and big government," she said. "And that's what we're doing today."
 

"And when you think about that first Tea Party, shoot, some may claim that John was there, at the first Tea Party," she said with a laugh, poking fun at McCain's age. McCain, who is 73, grinned widely beside her.

So, when, exactly did the Tea Parties start? Right after the Keating scandal?

Sarah Palin has no business shilling for this Rino. What a shame.

I rather doubt many Tea Party Patriots are buying into McCain, even with Palin's endorsement. I'm more curious about what damage she is doing to her own image within the Tea Party movement by pushing McCain.

At this point I'm wondering if she's pushed herself out of the possibility of running for president.

Palin is only making matters worse for herself by continuing to support flaming socialist McAmnesty.

Don't malign Sarah Palin for repaying McCain 'in kind' for thrusting her into the Public Eye.

The Demoncrats will just use our negative words back at us to ridicule us.

If you're from AZ or not, you can donate to JD Hayworth and help him win.

Again, I repeat, Do Not Give The DemoncRats fuel for their brush fires. Do Not Malign Republicans, we NEED a Republican Majority in House and Senate. We can "clean up" in 20-12 and the future. Because when the "kids" [yuppies] find out that the 'tax break' they got last year must be paid for in this year's Federal Income Tax, they'll be ripe for Conservative Membership!

Yeah, he was around during that time.

Back then, though, he was known as Benedict Arnold.

Palin is maligning herself by associating herself with socialist McAmnesty. Conservatives who oppose this association are standing firm on their principles over party affiliation.

Are we fans of Douglas McArthur, or not. I have very mixed feelings about McArthur. He was great in WW2 and Korea, but he was ready to turn U.S. troops against American citizens prior to his great achievements. I support McArthur in spite of his short comings and I support Sarah Palin.

Sarah, what are you doing?
Supporting McCain will only encourage him.
McCain has no chance of winning.
America needs a conservative, small government person who will never compromise. He ain’t it.

Sort of true.

He supported the early bail-out bills which started the Tea Party movement.

So, he was there at the beginning -— just not on the Tea Party side, but on the opposite side.

==

Palin has chosen sides. Since she supports McCain, she defaults to support his CFR attack on the First Amendment (3 parts of which have been deemed unconstitutional by the courts), amnesty for illeglas, etc.

Wrong side, Gov. You can’t rewrite history. McCain is just politics as usual and McCain definitely represents the Old Guard, which created most of the problems in Washington.

Send him back do to more damage?

tsk tsk tsk

I believe that to be the case. She has to know that by campaigning for McCain (in a lousy PRIMARY, of all things), she loses her reputation as someone who will courageously take on her own party's corrupt establishment, and that is a selling point she can not afford to be without.

I think Rusty Humphries and Dough Hayworth summed it up best by saying that they understand Sarah’s loyalty, and they expect and welcome her endorsement of Hayworth after McCain loses.

I’m just going to give her time. Once McCain is voted out of office, hopefully she’s done with him and focused back on the Tea Party.

Was McPain a teabagger before or after he introduced Amnesty, McCain/Feingold and several other Socialist fiasco's?

Palin is rapidly proving her incompetence as a Conservative. She is also a terrible speaker, is a lightening rod among independents, the MSM and her politically troubled past of being a quitter, etc, will guarantee a win for the other side.

NO MORE LOSERS FOR THE GOP!

I am glad she’s doing this. The media would not be paying any attention to her if she was campaigning for Hayworth. And if she campaigned against McCain the media would be having a field day creating the story that she is dis-loyal too rogue. This is helping Sarah more than McCain. Plus, for people who voted for Obama (and are now sorry), they are witnessing what they passed up in favor of Obamunusm.
Although, I must say, next to Sarah McCain looks old and that’s not helping him either. I believe Sarah did this to raise her own media exposure and more power to her.

I think she was referring to the Boston Tea Party.

But McCain is everything she claims that she’s fought against. McCain is the status quo, politics as usual, the good ol’ boys network, the Washington elite and part of the problem.

I disagree with those who say that she’d be nowhere without McCain. She’d have made it to the national stage just fine on her own accomplishments as a strong, competent governor. She didn’t need to be his running mate to be noticed. All she had to do was toss her hat into the ring.

It is what it is though and I only wish that at this point she’d back off and let McCain sink or swim on his own.

If Palin had released a statement, or given one speech, saying "I support McCain for reelection" she would be getting almost no flak on FR.

But what she is doing now goes far beyond that.

If she were seen washing McCain's car or busy at her sewing machine letting out one of Megan's dresses, I don't think I would now be surprised.
