Sarah Palin.....heading to NH (On the day Mitt is announcing there.)
Boston Globe ^ | June 2, 2011 | John Element

Posted on 06/02/2011 7:53:02 AM PDT by no dems

Sarah Palin emerged today from the Marriott Long Wharf hotel and said she planned to walk the Freedom Trail before heading to New Hampshire – where Mitt Romney is to announce his presidential candidacy today.

“Coincidental that we’re in the same territory at the same time,’’ said Palin, a likely Republican presidential candidate. “But more power to Mitt… and best of luck to him.’’ Palin said she remains undecided on whether she will challenge Romney and other candidates for the Republican presidential nomination.

Sarah, Sarah, Sarah... I love you girl, but this is tacky. Why not let Mitt have his day in the sun? You know you will be a major distraction from his day. The Liberal Networks are already making her look like an ogre over this deal this morning.

The Palin Paradox.

If Romney really was the "clear front runner" and Palin really was "just an entertainer" it wouldn't matter a hill of beans what she did on Mittster's special day.

Tell us, PLEASE, what you like about spoiler Mitt Romney?

Was it alright for Team Romney and MITT to throw the ELECTION?

Romney attacking Gov. Palin ---- for Obama in 2008

Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers…
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide…
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."


The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"I’m told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palin’s people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romney’s former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
… aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.


"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off ….hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."


"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the “Diva” leak was Nicolle Wallace’s husband."


"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"

"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"

"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"

"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"

"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"

Please. Give it a rest. This is politics.

And her bus (bank on it) will drive right by the farm while Mitt is announcing — giving a beep beep to Mitt and the little mittenettes.

White House Refuses Access To Boston Herald, Calls Out Mitt Romney’s Front Page Op-Ed

"The White House Press Office has decided to keep the Boston Herald from reporting on the May 18th Boston fund raiser for Barack Obama’s re-election campaign efforts."

"Evidently, the White House felt that the paper has demonstrated a bias in its history of reporting on the President."

"A Romney spokesperson weighed in by noting that the “op-ed was about jobs, which apparently is a sensitive subject for the thin-skinned people around the president.” The Herald has also, in the past, featured less than flattering front page coverage of Romney."

Only liberals or the lazy ill informed read that rag in the Northeast. The Boston Globe is the obvious Press of the Left and the Obama Administration.

MITT ROMNEY – HATER OF RADIO AMATEURS

Mr. Romney "Disses" Amateur Radio In Televised Town Meeting

Gov. Sarah Palin, Governor of the state of Alaska, proclaimed the week of July 28 through August 3, 2008 as: Amateur Radio Week

If Sarah was no threat to Romney, in other words if he was really the front runner and sure to beat Sarah for the nomination why is he worried about it? The news media is full of contradictions about Sarah, claiming she is a media whore and then following her around and writing every thing about her from what color her bus is to how she eats her pizza. Saying how dumb she is then claiming she out foxed them with the bus tour. Now saying she can't beat Romney but complaining she will make him look bad if she shows up in his area today.

The MSM and Romney supporters are full of sh**. Sarah can beat him, and will if she runs and they know it. That is why both Romney supporters(and Romney)and the MSM want her to stay away today. Romney is the MSM's choice for OUR candidate because they know he can be beaten.

"...major distraction from his day"


Why should she back off? If Mitt is the strongest candidate it should not matter what Sarah does, or where she goes.

I am sick of the "Elite" picking our candidate. If Sarah can make bigger news by not running than Mitt can by running then he is not the strongest candidate.

Mitt (in my opinion) has been selected so Obamacare is not an issue in the next election.

Personally I believe the race is for the Republicans to lose.

Obama's hard core supporters will support him regardless, it is the mushy center that will decide the election. If they have not been hit hard enough by now, they they (and we) deserve another four year march towards European Socialism.

1. The liberal media will treat her like an ogre, regardless.

2. Her presence on his “day in the sun” is nothing in comparison with his smear campaign against her in 2008.

3. If he doesn’t get the nomination because of Sarah, oh well...

G. Rommney and Gerald Ford tried to sabatage Ronald Reagan’s run in 1979-1980. They ONLY quit when Reagan “agreed” to put George HW Bush as VP(RINOs take care of themselves).

Palin is, yet again, doing a public service. By draining the oxygen from Mitt’s environment simply by driving by, she is highlighting what a lousy candidate he is.

She is giving a preview of how the 2012 election will play out if we elect a mushy, middle of the road, non-conservative, “I respect President Obama” spouting McCain/Dole. The MSM will provide the rah-rah for Obama, and if we don’t have a principled conservative to counter socialism and big government, we lose.

Why not let Mitt have his day in the sun?

If he wants a day in the sun, let him take it in Cancun. We're under no obligation to treat him with anything more than the RINO contempt he deserves.

Yes, George was a RINO but give credit where credit is due. He didn’t preside over a full and utter collapse of Mittengan AND he was unabashed about being beholden to the auto-industry executives.

Although not single-handedly, he did good, diligent work to keep Detroit alive.

Disclose: I grew up in Mittengan, left after college, came back for 10 years and WILL retire in the farmlands of the Southcentral counties.

Agreed. The idea that the better candidate can’t even appear in the first primary state on the day that the lousy candidate announces is preposterous.

“Coincidental that we’re in the same territory at the same time,’’ said Palin

LOL! The article says that Romney is having a big-bucks fund-raiser tonight at the Four Seasons Hotel. If Governor Palin has managed to siphon off very many of the deep-pockets type GOP donors to attend her clambake today, it will strike right at the heart of what's supposed to be Romney's greatest strength---his much touted ability to raise money.

At the very least, if Gov Palin decides not to run, she's sending an unmistakable message that she will not support or endorse Mitt Romney. The Republican establishment best pay heed. Can you hear us now, Rove? :-)

Young peeps would not remember George Romney throwing the GOP itself under the bus over his support for the Viet Nam War.

When Nixon was under pressure over LBJ’s war, George publicly stated he had been “brainwashed”(his exact word) into supporting the war, making Nixon look the brainwasher instead of LBJ. Libs made a big deal about it at a time when Nixon was trying to end this war the Dems had started. It was a cheap stunt intended to garner support from moderate voters in the run-up to the GOP presidential primary Romney was angling to win.

I lost respect for George Romney right then, if he was telling the truth, for being weak-minded enough to let others control his thought processes. Our captured boys were resisting the worst kind of torture/brainwashing at the Hanoi Hilton and this fat cat millionaire Romney submits to brainwashing while he enjoyed a posh Governor’s suite in Michigan.

If he was lying...well, who could respect someone who would concoct such a deceitful and treasonous story as that. What a weasel! LIKE FATHER LIKE SON.

Yeah, why intrude on Mitten’s day? I mean after all, Mitten has only had his minions trying to destroy Sarah Palin from the very day she appeared on the national scene. Especially so after Mitt gave it up and McInsane brought Mitt’s people over to his campaign and they realy went into high gear with their filth.

I say drub him severely Sarah, and then rub his nose in his own crap.

Why not let Mitt have his day in the sun?

Considering that it was the Romney campaign people who went to "work" for McCain after he got the nomination and named Sarah as his runing mate, and then they proceeded to trash Sarah and lessen her appeal for this election and make his Mittness more likely to win this nomination, Sarah can open as many cans of Whoop Ass on Romney as she wants!

And rightfully so.
