Hannity Special: McCain Camp Didnít Vet Obama; Palin Thought That Was a Mistake
Conservatives4Palin ^ | Saturday May 19, 2012

Posted on 05/19/2012 11:18:08 AM PDT by Bigtigermike

Sean Hannity hosted a panel on his show last night, to discuss Barack Obama’s history, in his “own words.” Stephen K. Bannon was a member of that panel, and reminded viewers (around the 3:30 mark) that the McCain campaign failed to vet Obama during the 2008 presidential election:

The decision to not vet the current president in 2008 by Steve Schmidt and other incompetent individuals within the McCain camp, played a role in outcome in that race. Governor Palin knew the American people deserved to know the facts about Obama’s history and associations. Schmidt & Co. simply wouldn’t allow it, and the result is the current failed leadership directing the executive branch of the nation’s federal government today.

The Divine Sarah rules! And she’s finally spilling the beans on McCain and his team of patsies and creeps.

Schmidt has been one of Romney's boys for years and years.

He's one of members of the GOP-e faction who needs to defect to the Democrat coalition ~ soon.

If our politics are like the Olympics, then whose team does McCain play for?

His behavior makes me wonder and speculate.

They had plenty of time to do whatever to McCain in Hanoi.

Not saying that they did anything to him, I'm just trying to figure out why the 'war hero' is such a zero when it comes to the Constitution, duty, country and state with every passing day he's in office.

Who is he? What is he?

Too bad their interpretation of the vetting process never includes the eligibility issue.
Biggest and most overriding issue of all never brought up.

Freeps, these same asswipes are going to run Romney’s campaign and if you’re a conservative and going to be a rino supporter or ABO, then at the VERY least you could do is hold these peoples feet to the fire! This is why it is so crucial at the convention conservatives bring the hammer down on the GOPe!

How could Sarah stop McCain from promoting Obama’s “goodness” while running against him? McCain wanted to lose. He wanted to BURN us. It seems that he lives just to do this.

Thus it should be no surprise when Juan McCain tells the Arizona Secretary of State to back off on his demands that Obama validate his authenticity.

Incompetence wasn’t behind Schmidt or anyone else with the McCain campaign deciding to punt on vetting Obama. Any such vetting would eventually come down to whether or not Obama was even eligible for the office, and McCain couldn’t have that, as he had his own questionable issues in the same regard.

Hey, here’s stray thought - Maybe McLaim HATES the USA SOOOOOOOO much for placing him in harm’s way for the debacle called “The Vietnam War” that he’s secretly one of “them” ...... just a random thought, trying to develop a reason for his bizarre behavior .....

The good Senator has no such authority over the Arizona Secretary of State. Not that this would deter him, but he does not have the legal power to stop it.

I remember watching Ann Coulter on Hannity and Colmes blurting out “Barry Soetero” and both Holmes and Hannity turned sheet white. They both froze.

Ann Coulter said “what?... What?... That was his other name”

They both were visably shaken and went right to a station break.

I guess some things are off limits to talk about.

Frankly I don’t think it was as devious as that. I think he was just tired, played out. He didn’t want to “fight.”

Romney will apologize to 0bama before he is reelected.

It is to be determined yet what he will apologize for.

Maybe Mitt lives in a glass house on the left side of the street.

Since around 2000, McCain has hated the conservatives in particular, and the GOP in general.
