Most Palin supporters (not all) waited until she said she was not going to run. Few (if any) had gone to Bachmann, almost none had gone to Perry, frankly most of us don't like him as an alternative. Now that the looking around is complete, most of us have gone to Cain

That is exactly right. Any Palin supporter could tell you that most of us held strong until she told us herself that she wasn't running. The majority of us certainly didn't run off to support another candidate while the question remained open.

Now that she's made her choice, we Palinistas are shifting our support to the next best outsider/reformer (who can also win), which is Herman Cain.

You are right.

You agree with a banned Mittbot?

Oops, he's gone....

Good riddance to the Mittbot. I wonder how many others will commit freepicide before this is over.

Is Fox that ignorant of what Rove is up to, or are they co-conspirators?

Neither. It's news. Why shouldn't they report it? Or do you prefer to be kept in the dark? Rove's pretty influential. It might be good to know what he's up to.

I find it amusing even Salon notices.

No one needs to attack Cain, his lead will soften if he doesn't sharpen up on message (to avoid confusion) and work on specifics in other areas.

Sadly, yes.

Romney is going to win by default. Just like McCain did. And he just might loose the election because there will be no real choice.

Turn in your Vast Right Wing Conspiracy card. You've already surrendered.

Sorry that I wasn't more specific. With my co-conspirator comment I wasn't referring to that particular clip of Rove, but to the way Fox constantly and endlessly features Rove.

I'm surprised that Fox hasn't yet brought Rove in to pass judgment on the world series or the weather report.

The only thing Rove built was the modern state of the GOP as the tower of babel.

He’s done enough to take the GOP down to a permanent minority status by cleansing all ideas for conservative reform and leadership from the party.

Rove is the one who thought it beneath him to defend President Bush against the onslaught of leftist lies we endured and that brought a communist into the White House.

Its past time conservatives and Republicans woke up to the damage done by RINOs. In many respects, they are worse than Democrats.

You KNOW where Democrats stand. But the Roves, Romneys, McCains and Lindsey Grahams pretend to stand with you in the battle line. Then, when the face of the enemy is in front of you - THEY stab you in the back,

First, access on Youtube the video: What Romney Does Not Want Republicans to Hear.

I couldn't find that one, but less than a week ago, AntiRinos posted a video here that gives you Romney's views in favor of abortion, gun control, anthropogenic global warming, the stimulus bills, etc. After watching it, I made sure to "like" it.

Try googling youtube The Real Romney. I must have had the name wrong. Footage (5:05 min) on many subjects from a Romney debate with Edward Kennedy.

Was Mark Seidenberg the fellow who registered a land claim to part of Wrangel Island at an Alaskan Land Office and then sued Kissinger for signing away American claims to that island? Wrangel Island was a part of the Gulag where heroic Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg is said to have been imprisoned as late as 1962.

Pig Rove has been popping up on Fox a hell of a lot lately. You'd be surprised how quick I can grab the remote.

I don't need too. I stopped watching FOX several years ago. Rove and Newt too political has beens who just can't stay away from cameras and still think they are somehow relevant.

I don’t care what anybody is up to, especially if that anybody is Rove. I quit listening to him a long time ago. That being said, I think that he’s particularly down on Cain because he’s not mainstream Republican which, unfortunately, has a strong base of RINOs running it. If Cain gets the nomination, I’m guessing that tiic in charge of the Republicans will work against him. Rove has seen his powerbase slipping away from him and he wants it back. He can more easily accomplish that with Romney than with Cain and that’s why he is pushing Romney.

I refuse to support Romney. At this point, I am more than willing to support and vote for Cain.

Yes, that's the guy. For years, he was a thorn in the side of the State Department. He was very active in YAF, and a few years ago, he tried to get on the board that runs the Auto Club. He's still active in conservative causes.

The stories of Gulags and Wallenberg on Wrangel Island are likely urban legends. However, having known Seidenberg, I have learned a lot about the island, and the fact that we did nothing after the Soviets seized it in 1924 is the one beef I have against the Coolidge administration.

Was George W. Bush acceptable?
