Looks to me like she gave us the chance and we didn’t take it, so now she’s all in. Wish she’d done this yesterday!

Great endorsement...wow. I wish Sarah would completely throw her support behind Mr. Newt and get out there with him in Alabama and Mississippi. Here in Kansas she would push Mr. Newt over the finish line.

Kind of sad. All the media pressure drove her to the left.

I still remember when she stood up to Gingrich about Dede Scozzafava.

The chance to nominate the candidate who BHO wouldn’t annihilate in the general. That’s what chance.

Sarah DID not endorse Newt. She was asked who she voted for in AK and she said Newt. She just told CNN hour ago that she was glad that all of the candidates were in the race aand wee very neutral — she then said again “ if for some reason one of the 4 did not bring it over the line, I’m open to serving”.

So, that’s an endorsement. I don’t know why she kept so close-mouthed in one way about who she would endorse, then tell who she voted for.

Wow - I love Sarah, but she’s wrong on this pick. Santorum has the chance and Newt doesn’t. She just help string this out for a Romney win, IMO.

Notice on Fox that GEORGIA doesn’t appear on the banner at the bottom of the screen with all the other states. Ya think FOX doesn’t like Newt? Just saying.

About to see just how much weight Palin carries with the tea party (remember them) and the conservatives.

My first choice as well, but she wasn’t interested. Apparently something has gotten her interested enough to come this far with it.

My evil Machiavellian twin, would like to believe Palin is not angling for a winning candidate.

She’s angling to deny Romney a win on the count.

Still remembering that word: “Unconventional”.

The Palin’s are probably the only two sane voters in the state of Alaska (Freepers excepted). The Paulistas with probably rule there.

*********************

How’s that not an endorsement? -:)

If she said her vote was private, that’s one thing. Giving public notice of whom one has supported with one’s vote— that’s an endorsement.

Sarah didnt endorse Newt...these Newt posters are getting carried away. She said that she voted for Newt in the Alaska caucus “preference” poll. she put emphasis on preference in the interview, this is not an endorsement.

She had to vote for someone among the 4 and chose the “cheerful one” as she put it

I agree, but, I think she likes the fire in Newt’s belly - or maybe she wants to stop the Romney momentum. I just don’t know if she’s as conservative as I thought. Politics sure is a strange animal.

I had paid for the discounted year subscription to GBTV, so I have it until it runs out. Anyhow, I flipped on GBTV to see what Beck was doing today...

He was doing a Super Tuesday show. He had a screen up with Santorum, Romney, Paul and Obama. He said he didn’t like Newt whatever and wouldn’t have him up. Click—off it went.

I was an idiot to buy that access to that junky GBTV.

Good for Sarah. Santorum would make a worse president than Romney. Santorum sucks.

I can’t fathom why anybody would prefer Santorum over Newt.

What more do people want? Todd Palin is campaigning and endorsing Newt. Sarah just announced she voted for Newt. She is in for Newt so either follow her lead or shut up. No matter how you spin it, SHE DID NOT VOTE FOR Santorum.

“Asked about Rick Santorum’s contention that Gingrich is dividing the conservative, anti-Romney vote, Palin dismissed the complaint. “Oh, boo-hoo,” she said.”

Sound like she’s for Rick? -:)

Wow - I love Sarah, but she’s wrong on this pick. Santorum has the chance and Newt doesn’t.

Santorum is a big government social conservative - and a fine man. But he will be annihilated in the general.

I want a pit bull fighter, not a nice man with a propensity to legislate everything.

Sorry but Rick would get demolished in a general. He's amateur. But a fine man.

This is all over Sarah Palin’s facebook page that she did vote for Newt in Alaska. I think Newt should ask Sarah ASAP to be his VP ...we need a new direction. Mitt and Rick is NOT working. We need a New plan for the fall election.

"Santorum is a big government social conservative - and a fine man. But he will be annihilated in the general."

You're right. Same for the used car salesman. Neither has a chance in the general. Unless Newt really pulls it out with the Southern states, and catches on after that, we're looking down the abyss.

I agree,

Unless Palin in fact has an “unconventional” plan to derail Romney with a brokered convention, it’s time for her to throw in 100% with Gingrich, and run as his VP.

Saying so. Sometime tomorrow would be helpful.

This is serious. Beyond serious. This is series.

America as we know it, is at stake.

If you are on facebook, go to Sarah Palin facebook and ask her to help Newt in these southern states or we are heading to more stress and worrying ourselves through the fall election. I don't care what anyone says, Newt is the strongest, Rick is too big government and Romney has Romneycare. We have to make a change. Romney is weak to go up to Obama.

Yes, with 2 ‘most-hated’ conservatives running, the lamestream will be worn-out to the extreme and will have no more energy left to boost obozo!

Yes. Everyone needs to think back to the first few debates when he was like a little kid practically jumping around waving his hand and saying "Teacher, Teacher, Pick me...Teacher give me a chance."
Obama would not be a nice teacher in a debate and let Rick talk.

Santorum supporters can't handle this. Heads are exploding.

When it came to her personal vote, she chose Newt and said so.

I'll just say ... Go Palin!

I have no confidence in a Palin endorsement or VP slot with Newt. I would vote for it, as would many FReepers, but she’s not all that popular in the general public. But Newt is our only hope to beat Obama.

I sent a bunch of you guys/gals messages to “feel you out”, but I think I’m getting a sense of how people feel.

I see you’re a follower of the MSM message de jour. (not saying you’re supporting it, just that you seem to have accepted it)

I tend to go exactly the other directly from the MSM, whatever their message.

The MSM is not the general public.

Less so, every day.

I am not following any particular message- but Sarah Palin has been destroyed by the MSM and others. I don’t think that her candidacy would help anyone. And FR is not the general electorate either.
