We all knew it didn’t we? She was a STALKING HORSE. Let’s all trash and smear her within an inch of her life.

She was a stalking horse. How about “Sarah is my friend” but allows Ed Rollins to attack her and then only after many days say that Ed was wrong. Plus she hardly hit Mitt except for a few times in the debates when he was clearly the Establishment frontrunner as the non-Romneys rise and fell

Has she been promised a position? Like “Foster Kid” Czar or something?

Don’t you want to beat up on one of the first legislators to organize solid rallies and protests against Obamacare?

Of course not, Laslo, I just wanted to thank Michelle for her support of Newt, once he became the last man standing between the socialist Romney and Uncle Nutty, for her rallying the troops.

Cain and Perry actually respected the conservative among these players.

Who was silent, and stayed silent, even after they
themselves dropped out? Bachman. Santorum.

They both have bread that needs to be buttered by the socialist they have helped give us.

Sarah who? Was there a candidate by that name?

In what way was this "Sarah" involved in ANYTHING?

You may have had an argument there except for the fact that Palin didn't bother to run. What does it matter if her manager says anything about Palin? She wasn't in this race.

That incident was during May or June. they didn’t know whether Sarah was entering the race or not so attacking Sarah could have been a preemptive strike and raised a lot of questions about Bachmanns true motives

Along with Sarah Palin and Dick Cheney.

They are not GOPe or RINOs.

So you are arguing that an attack from a political hack like Rollins, working for a last tier candidate, kept Palin from running? That’s absurd. That incident had little or no effect on the Primary race and it certainly doesn’t discredit a solid Tea Party Conservative. One of the few fighting for us on Capitol Hill.

Sarah Palin’s involved in the TeaParty, a leader. A patriot.

You can find images of her here on this site with a guy named Jim Robinson.

She is not GOPe.

She is not a RINO.

She supports Mitt’s election.

The better question is who are you?

No....I didn’t say that what Rollins did kept Sarah out of the race. You need reading comprehensive my friend.

I will hand you that. Bachmann was on the field with the Tea Party. I am dejected that Bachmann stayed silent after she got out, even after Santorum got out. Then Santorum joined Bachman in leaving Newt twisting.

That silence along with many others of course, was just the heavy lifting Romney needed, after already slaying Newt in Florida. They stayed silent even then on his tactics in Florida.

“Stalking horses” may be just the word I’m looking for.

Ah, well that answers the question. Just saying "Sarah" don't quite get it, does it?
I thought maybe it was a reference to that chick with the cake mixes and stuff.

You can find images of her here on this site with a guy named Jim Robinson.

Really? He likes cake mixes? I had no idea. Kolaches are good too.

She supports Mitt’s election.

Does the cake mix lobby pay her for that?

The better question is who are you?

You don't know by now?

Gee wiz. Seems like if we’d had fewer so-called conservative candidates jockeying against each other for so long then we’d have had a chance to consolidate against Willard.

Now we have the chance to bicker some more and let Obama accrue what will be seen as a 2nd term MANDATE for socialism.

Oh sure. Yeah. we could have had Bachmann carry the Tea Party mantel against him in November, and gotten creamed. Which would’ve been seen as not only a MANDATE for socialism, but also a repudiation of conservatives.

If Mittens wins, it’s not great for conservatism, but it’ll be impossible to claim a Romney win is a win for the Occutards and Black Pantherism.

Seriously. This insanity that “Mitt is identical to Navy Seal Obama” will eventually die off as Obama’s antics become more outrageous (war in Iran coming up, btw).

Yeah right. Newt collapsed behind Paul last Tuesday because he didn't get an endorsement from Santorum. Whatever gets you through the day.

Few share the view that Sarah, Michelle, Herman Cain and Dich Cheney are GOPe and RINOs.

So since Michelle Bachmann is such a POS Commie Pinko, who in congress are you able to even tolerate? She has helped promote the cause of freedom as more than anybody there, hurting her forward mobility through the ranks of leadership as a result. You are going to have to realize that they are all going to end up backing the GOP nominee. It is how it has been for time in memoriam.

BTW. I see those anger management classes are paying off. Your down to about half the normal amount of the usual insults.

Good to hear there are still some ‘thinking’ and honorable conservatives left!!

And not like those who are clueless and putty in the hands by dishonorable deceitful ones to be lead astray into the hands of liberals - Mitt used them, also, to put him in office. They would NOT listen but instead mocked true conservatives because of their stupidity.
