Palin: ‘Rage against the machine, vote for Newt, annoy a liberal’ (video of Palin on Fox tonight)
Daily Caller ^ | 1/28/12 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 01/28/2012 7:52:44 PM PST by BCrago66

On Saturday night’s “Justice with Jeanine” on the Fox News Channel, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin once again stopped just short of giving former House Speaker Newt Gingrich her outright endorsement for the Republican nomination.

In her appearance, she explained that despite criticisms of Gingrich’s long career in Washington, D.C., she doesn’t consider him part of the establishment because that same “establishment” is trying to hard to keep him from becoming the nominee.

Maybe Sarah will/should put the rest of her remarks on Facebook.

That’s NOT the complete interview .. I saw it. In the new pro Romney faux way of theirs lately, the judge, allegedly close to a hard break, got a bit snickery and then just “had to” take the hard break and cut her off mid sentence. Watch to the end.

Too me Sarah has earned our trust, and if she is coming out against the GOP-E and taking them on just like she did in Alaska, than this only puts me deeper into her Camp.

Sarah, unlike Faux News and others, is standing up for Newt, for what is right, in the face of the Disease that is Leftism, whether it be from Romney or Ubama, she see's it, and she knows how she can help fight it!

G_D Bless You Onyx for keeping up the Fight here on FR

Go Sarah!

Go Newt!

I think Sarah will endorse Newt in time, but she wants the nomination process to last long enough to keep the pressure on Obama. Once the nomination is all sewn up, the highlighting of Obama's record stops, and Obama and the MSM will have all Summer to trash the Republican nominee.

So while I think it is good that she endorsed Gingrich for Florida as she did for SC, I understand why she is holding back he full endorsement.

That being said, if Newt can win in Florida, then it is on to the next states where the Republican voters will begin to see that Newt has what it takes to beat Mitt.

What is extremely heartening, is that Gingrich is not only on the verge of defeating Romney a second time, he would have done so in the first two Southern states. After the way McCain defeated Romney in the South in 2008, Mitt knows he needs to prove he can win in the South.

Regardless of the talk that Florida is actually the most Southern of the Northern States, because of the retirement crowd, it is still geographically a Southern State. The psychological impact to Romney's campaign will be devastating. That is why Mitt spent over $20 million in Florida, and used manipulated television adds that reminds everyone of the Democrats "Wither on the vine" adds. He needs to win Florida, if could be finished.

So it might be good for Mitt to win a few states, and he will probably win the heavy Mormon populated states. That could help draw this out as Palin, and Rush Limbaugh wants. Not so much for a brokered convention, but so Obama and the MSM don't have all Summer to turn the tide without any challenger taking them on to challenge him in the news. However, if Newt wins Florida, it's over for Mitt as it was after Florida in 2008, because it very well could be Gingrich who is on the verge of locking it up, not Mitt.

Think about it, if Newt wins Florida after he won big in SC, it will prove to the rest of the voters, that even if the party establishment thinks otherwise, that Newt can and will beat Obama's billion dollar slime assault.

You know what the Beetles said, "Money can't me love". The voters have no love for Romney nor Obama, and all the money in the world cannot buy it from those who truly despise them.

As a faux news contributor(on Payroll) I’m not sure that Sarah can technically endorse anyone. So, if everyone has been watching her actions and her words, she is getting as close to an endorsement as she can, contractually speaking.

Well, the liner is broken, yes?

Fox-News is just a tool. Not worth getting angry over, watch it or not (I don't), but my advice is to not trust it, and to not get so invested in them that you care, one way or the other.

Thank you from my heart, dearest you, KC_Lion. Sarah’s supporters are the very best. She didn’t let us down, we understood and stayed with her, knowing full well that she has her priorities right for this time in her life. She’s a TEA Patriot warrior. She’ll have her choice of positions in a Gingrich administration. God bless and keep both good patriots.

if you are in a 3-delegate caucus and the vote is 13 romney, 10 ronpaul, 4 newt (assume 15% viability threshold).... then NEWT gets 0 delegates and the 4 NEWTs get a chance to re-group with one of the other groups.

If the 4 newts join ronpaul, he gets 2 delegates and romney gets 1.

I wonder if the NEWTS were given instructions on who to group with ... seems RS would be first choice and then rp over mitt.

-- I have to admit I had doubts early on about Sarah, as she seemed to be propelled to the forefront so quickly, but she has proven herself to be a total class act, with courage and clarity. --

She's a real good egg. Gingrich is more articulate and more experienced. She's got a decent role in keeping him honest. I don't think she'd shy away from disagreeing with something he advocates or asserts - after he's elected president.

She explicitly said, for each of the four, that she wants to hear more from them. She explicitly says she wants to keep the process going. She does come out against some of the intra-party attacks and clearly mentions some made against Newt. She said more nice things about Newt than the others, although she said some nice things about all four. However, she declined to endorse Newt at this time and appeared to be trying to frame a different point than that when she was cut off.

I think Newt fans would be overreaching this to claim it as an endorsement by Palin. She doesn't appear to want anybody out yet. Newt fans should, instead, hype the heck out of Cain's endorsement. Neither Romney nor Paul supporters, if any are still here, should have had any hopes of a Cain endorsement and thus should accept it as inevitable. Santorum folks might have hoped Cain would endorse Rick, but tonight instead should be focused on praying for Bella. Yet another recovery by his already miraculous daughter would do Rick more good than any mere political endorsement.

Jeanine was more than a little bit of a Beacht with Sarah. All she does is praise Mittens and attacks Newt, or anyone that takes up for him.

“Wants to” become more liberal?

They already are.

Sad, too, I used to like them, but now it’s all Mittens, all the time.

And bashing Newt constantly. Judge Jeanine was particularly loathsome tonight.

To be fair, Bill O’Reilly of all people, has been pretty even handed, as has Hannity. I suspect Greta would be as well, just haven’t watched her much lately.

The rest can go to hell.

Gov Palin understand a FL win for the establishment darling Romney effectively kills the nomination battle and anoints him.

She also understands Romney is a weak candidate who needs to be honed by a competitive race or there will be no hope of defeating Obama. She also understands a competitive race helps Newt as well.

“So, what is her plan?”

I would expect she does not want to offend any of the supporters of Santorum or even Dr Paul; as their support may be needed down the road. Also, it is possible that in a given state either Dr Paul or Santorum may be the best chance to beat Romney. If that happens, she wants to be able to get the other candidates supporters to shift to that candidate. By keeping everybody in the race now it gives her credibility and leverage to act as an impartial negotiator amongst all parties.

This is not just about Newt; it's about the survival of the Tea Party.

Hi Onyx and TitansAFC!!

Yes, please add me (dayglored) to the Newt 4 Prez ping list.

As you know, I had my heart set on Sarah Palin for Prez, and if the GOP-e deny Newt that opportunity, I have already sworn I will write in "Sarah Palin" come November.

But I hope that Newt prevails both before the convention and in the November election.

Thank you very much!!!

Just watched the entire Sarah/Judge interview with the quirky eye/mouth smirks from Janine, and the rude cut off at the end.

I agree with your analysis...well stated.

Sarah is smart to keep her support as is, for now. Just having Sarah mention "Vote for Newt...annoy a liberal" is of great value to Newt.

Thanks to those who posted the interview. I'm in the process of watching Newt's speech from earlier tonight. From the looks of that thread...it must've been another hit-out-of-the-park night for Newt.

Woo hoo! Go Newt!

-- However, she declined to endorse Newt at this time and appeared to be trying to frame a different point than that when she was cut off. --

The point she was trying to make was that the GOP v. Obama polls are meaningless at this point in time. That Romney losing by less than Newt, or Newt having higher negatives, etc., is going to change between now and November.

The judge was hanging her hat on the current polling. That's what all the "doing the math" jargon was about - current popularity polling.

I think, and others have posted, that the reason is a prohibition in her Fox contract. Sounds right to me.

I dunno. If so, Fox is sure playing fast and loose by allowing other of their "talent" to ask, outright, who she is endorsing; or if she will endorse, etc. I think Palin is forbidden from having a regular paid gig at the same time she is a declared candidate.

I think she's signaling people to vote for Gingrich in the FL race, in as strong a terms as she thinks give her plausible deniability, and holding her fire for future races depending on what develops. If she comes out and endorses, she loses that flexibility; and also damages her value as a prognosticator. Why have her on any more? If she takes a position, she becomes predictable - probably hitting herself in the wallet, and also losing the venue.
