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
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.
I remember how, when Bachmann was starting to poll close to Romney, and was about to win the Iowa caucus, a small but vocal group of Freepers here decided to tear her down, part of the “destroy the other conservatives so Sarah Palin can enter the race” strategy.
While I would have loved to have Sarah Palin in the race, I had confidence that she could clear her own field, and it certainly didn’t help beat Romney to burn the village and run off all the conservative candidates. We needed to unite around the first guy or girl who showed they could beat Romney, instead the first two were targeted, and the 3rd only survived because Palin directly announced she wasn’t running, but he fell of his own accord.
That was of course all before the collective re-imagineering of Newt Gingrich as “the conservative we wanted all along”. For which Santorum was regularly attacked, again splitting the conservative vote through negative attacks, making it harder for the supporters of each candidate to join forces.
Don’t get me wrong — I don’t actually think individual actions like that were a deciding factor in anything; I do think that as a whole, conservatives were not focused on beating Romney at any cost, too many wanted what they thought was the perfect candidate.

Not everyone does what Reagan did! Don’t speak ill of your fellow republicans!
Ask yourself what else you would expect her to do. She KNOWS that obama is a huge threat to this country. By regulation and executive order he is eroding what's left of our liberty daily. He's dividing and polarizing this country as never before. Black vs. white, male vs female, homo vs normal, poor vs middle class and rich, middle class vs rich, unions vs free men, etc. etc etc.
As poor a choice as many of us feel Romney to be...he's infinitely better than another 4 years of obama. Michelle is being a patriot here and I support her for that. I've never known her ever do anything that wasn't in the best interest of AMerica and that's what she's doing now.
