Skip to comments.How do you solve a problem like Sarah? Romney misses out in stand-off with loose cannon diva

She is the Tea Party diva who lit up the 2008 Presidential campaign.
But four years later Mitt Romney is facing one of the most vexing questions of his campaign: what to do with Sarah Palin?
In an increasingly uncomfortable stand-off, he has not invited her to next months Republican national convention whilst she has failed to give him her full backing.
Palin has also not appeared with the Romney on the campaign trail and prefers to use her Facebook page to bash Barack Obama.
The result is that the Republican presidential candidate is left without the endorsement of a woman who can energise his base in a way he can only dream of.
The former Massachusetts governor - who is so emotionally cold friends reportedly call him Tin Man - is facing nagging questions about how he can appeal to the Tea Party which still feels he is a left wing flip flopper.
Palin would fill that role but would constantly be in danger of going rogue - and not sticking to the carefully crafted scripts....

If he and his people were as smart as they think they are, the answer would be obvious: Pick her as running mate!! Can you imagine the first day's contributions?
They will never, ever, EVER forgive her for that.
Taken the conones of the Obamadork (none), add to it the cojones of Mittens RINOmney (almost immeasurable), multiply the sum by 10 million, and you get the cojones of Sarah.
It’s also interesting to note that she still has more leadership skills and experience in government than both of the above mentioned dorkheads.
We’re so screwed - having to choose between a incumbent felonious, cretinous vapid dork, and a mere vapid dork.
Such is the fate of a doomed country.
The fact that Romney is in a quandary about “what to do about” Sarah Palin shows that he was the WRONG choice for the GOP nominee.
Here’s hoping that the GOP does the right thing and tosses this klutz overboard at the convention. Doubt it will happen, but one can always hope.
Why would she want to do that? She would tell him to get stuffed.
I'm thinking he likes Condoleeza Rice. She's single and eligible as a sister-wife to Ann.
She wouldn’t accept anything from the man who was behind trashing her and HER FAMILY for four years.
I do not understand the headline. There is no problem with Sarah (Palin), unless you are a liberal.
Bump! One should always have hope!
Hence, the mention of Mittens. ;)
I held my nose and voted for McLame because of Sarah, I won’t do it again. NOTHING will make me vote for Mittens
I’m voting for a conservative this election.
Regarding this ‘stand off’ - I think Mittens expects Sarah to ‘fall in line’ (like he thinks all women should) regardless of what he does, and I fear he is right.
Sadly, I expect her to cave and still not get the invite.
One thing is gor sure. Romney will not pick ANYONE who has not endorsed him.
I’m thinking he likes Condoleeza Rice. She’s single and eligible as a sister-wife to Ann.

She is also black and that would be a no-no according to LDS prophets.
Once again, romney is NOT a CINO or a RINO but is a socialist/liberal. Let’s keep it honest even though some can’t bear to read the truth about POS Romney - he is our obama given on the same plate the ‘rats where given him in ‘08.
Remember how stupid we thought they were and still do?
The problem (for Myth) is that Sarah hasn’t endorsed him. There is an expectation that Sarah will get people to vote for Mittens like they did McCain.
No, you pick Allen West as your running mate and let him hit the campaign trail with Sarah to shore up your "Right" flank.
I agree w/you with everything except I don’t think she will cave. She doesn’t need an invite to go to the Convention.
I hope she doesn’t but I have been consistently disappointed in the people who have caved and endorsed Mittens.
Sara Palin doesn’t hold political office and isn’t running for anything. She is now a media commentator.
It would be no more appropriate to for the GOP to invite Sara Palin to speak at the convention than it would be for the Dems to invite Andrea Mitchell.
McCain didn’t initiate socialistic ROMNEYCARE or same sex marriage for his state and isn’t pro abortion and McCain served his country. Mitt has evil running through his lying veins. And McCain isn’t a cult leader. They can’t be compared - compare Mitt to obama - they are both godless.
That is true.
The closest she has come is, “we need to get rid of BHO” or “I’ll support the nominee”.
She has said she would step up to run if there is a brokered convention.
When she talks about the “nominee”, she very rarely even mentions Romney’s name, and seems to gag a little if she does have to say his name.
I've been told here on FR that Romney is our savior, and that we must ignore such irrelevancies as "what's her name." (See tagline)
She did say last August on her visit to Iowa that she “could support someone like Romney.”
Sarah Palin was a governor and a VP candidate, Mitchel only reads the news.
Former governors, senators, house members, presidents and former VP candidates are asked to speak quite frequently.
To compare the above to someone who reads the news is ridiculous.
“..she very rarely even mentions Romneys name, and seems to gag a little if she does have to say his name.”
Apparently, I have a LOT in common with her.
Has Andrea Mitchell ever been on a Presidential ticket as VP?
No problem. Stop posing as a conservative, and just admit you’re an acceptable RINO because you’re not Obama. TEA partiers can either take you or leave you, as they see fit. Give her a voice in the administration, perhaps a cabinet level post. State? I would love it.
Yes when McCain chose her he thought he was just throwing a bone to conservatives so we would shut up and vote for him. He and many other Republicans/RINOs were stunned to find out how many of “us” there are. Likely stunned and a bit worried, now they are back to walking on us and still expecting our vote. It is not just that they don’t know what to do about Palin, they can shut her out- they don’t know what to do about us.
I'd NEVER vote for his LYING boney cult butt. I don't vote for evil.
She may have said that before the primaries, I mean who would have thought Romney was probably going to be the nominee.
Now when she speaks of him, she seems to just gag when she says his name, AND she said in a brokered convention she would step up.....hardly a support statement for someone like Romney.
>> “having to choose between a incumbent felonious, cretinous vapid dork, and a mere vapid dork.” <<
Romney is not just a vapid dork; he has taken a blood oath to Lucifer, and he will conduct himself accordingly. You may consider it a joke, but he does not; he wears a Lucifer approved space suit under his clothes every day.
I totally agree, romney is a scumbag.
>> “I’d NEVER vote for his LYING boney cult butt. I don’t vote for evil.” <<
Unfortunately, you will not likely be given a chance to cast a meaningful vote for anything else.
She is going to work her harump off for the down ticket, but I doubt seriously if she will work much if at all for Romney.
He is not the GOP pick.
He is the DNC II pick.
Rush barely scrapped the truth for a brief moment today.
He noticed how viscous Myth was and is to GOP candidates, VS how kid gloved he is towards the DNC candidate.
It's because Myth is NOT a Republican! He's just another illuminati finger puppet! It's disheartening that over half of even FR peeps still believe in the puppet show!
No refunds folks. Stop buying the ticket!
Maybe a better analogy would be Joe Scarborough—former GOP office holder and now MSNBC TV host.
Sara Palin isn’t the only conservative former politician in the world, and world doesn’t revolve around her. I honestly don’t understand why it’s an issue at all.
This just sounds too much like the Paul supporters complaining that Ron Paul hasn’t been invited to speak at the convention.
Speaking of their demonic oaths and such, Wal-Marts in Utah and other stores are selling LDS necklaces (made by a company owned by the Osmonds) that are a downward pentacle.
She should wait until 2020. You know Palin/West or West/Palin. Knock em’ out with two rights.
Unfortunately, you will not likely be given a chance to cast a meaningful vote for anything else.

It will be meaningful to me. I will not violate my faith or my conservative principles and vote for that lying, evil, socialist, demonic scumbag - either of them.
The politicians who have - really aren’t conservative at the root level but for election purposes only. They want to be included in the good old boys club (protection) otherwise they will be ostracized in DC. Their career is more important to them than America - Patriots they are NOT!!
And the talking heads want to keep working - money is more important than America.
I knew this was were we were headed in ‘08 and when a KNOWN LIAR CULT leader wants something - there are NO bounds he couldn’t cross to get it.
It’s the voters who are responsible - they allow evil to exist - w/o their support, it couldn’t. And, then there are some clueless to evil and was caught in it’s web even though they were told! Unteachable.
So what they have brought on America - THEY OWN! I am keeping my hands clean and NOT bringing evil on AMERICA.
Do you really think you have one now?
Myth may not hate America as much as 0b0tt0, is not what I'd call a chance or choice.
"Loose cannon diva"? LOL, C'mon Daily Mail, you can do better than that!
Hmmm, lessee, howabout "loose-hussy cannon-firing lightweight-diva"?
Uh, lipstick... "loose-hussy cannon-firing lightweight-lipsticked-diva"?
Heels... red heels... red high-heels...
"Loose-red-high-heeled-hussy cannon-firing lightweight-lipsticked-diva"?
"Loose-red-high-heeled-hussy cannon-firing-moose-killing lightweight-lipsticked-diva"?
Yes! Got it!
Apparently you do not like Palin, I find that curious.
You are correct the world does not revolve around her, she sure does make liberals spin though.
At the present, she is the best person out there delivering the conservative messages to the largest crowds.
But again, former VP candidates as well as other former elected officials are asked to speak.
WHY? American voters already showed their perfercence - evil over good. They could have supported and voted for NEWT - the ONLY Conservative in the race and the ONLY one who had the background and knowledge to be president. The others were toys of Mitt to be used for his agenda.
There will be no America in 2020 as we know. See how easily they get their way - have evil give money to the candidates and evil wins - voters are too easily swayed and too maive and TOO FEARFUL.
Notice the CORRUPTION in 3rd world countries where they are ‘allowed to vote’ thinking they had a chance - that is where we are - unless citizens in mass storm the powers that be and say NO ROMNEY!! Unless that happens, corruption and money decide for America as our silence condoned it.
In the end, Sarah and Newt will hear, Well done, good and faithful servants. With the real Judge, they win.
It's not an issue with me....I learned a long time ago to sit back and observe, then evaluate what you've seen, let the chips fall where they may with no prejudice.
I can't change it, nor can you or anyone else, I was simply commenting on your flawed analogy.
No harm, no foul.
BUMP!! It is meaningful to me as I will be acting like who/what I am! When one is solid, no devil in hell can make them move!
