Sarah Palin is not dividing the country, the communists(democrats/news media) are divisive, and blaming.

I’m thinking the thought of a Conservative pick is a lot less boring than having to read more nonsense out of this chronically leftist rag.

You’ve really got to wonder what the angle is, when they’re addressing the topic of Palin.

I remain unconvinced that Romney needs to involve Palin at all.

It’s not a snub if he doesn’t invite her in. It’s an honor if anything if he does. The absolute last thing I want to see right now, is a draft Sarah campaign for vice-president.

If we want to beat Obama, we need to avoid any such effort. If he didn’t then pick her, it could turn more people off to his candidacy. Those of you who want to see Obama removed from office wish to chance that?

I’m not voting for the guy, and even I don’t want to see that.

Palin is IMHO our premiere Conservative leader... she divided no one. That racist, kenyan, fagot, commie, muslim, usurper, liar and thief has divided America more than at anytime since the Civil War... he may start one of those before he leaves office.

Sarah unites thinking people... even if you don't like her... you know that she makes sense on policy. Those that hate Sarah and love obama will never make it in the future obama has left to us. No matter who wins... no matter what the agenda... even if we do all of the right things... things will get better under a Conservative but we owe more money than exists in the entire world... and we have to shrink government, cut spending and taxes and get the revenue machine making profit and thereby raising revenue intake to the Fed so that we can pay debt down or we will default. Castroti and dependent parasites are never going to make it.

The choice of Sarah in 2008 gave a huge spike in the polls to dumbass McCain’s campaign.

The Left and their minions among the presstitutes attacked and villified her successfully.

Sarah’s only faux pas was her cheerleading for women for the sake of women rather than for conservatives. But now she seems to have tuned in to the right formula and she has learned how to handle the press.

To be a force in politics in running for office, Sarah has to find a Reaganesque voice and she seems to be doing that.

I, for one, am hoping for a brokered convention that will eventually lead to a title like Mrs, President.

“Palin’s national role in the last few days reminds us why she matters”

Romney is still one of the good ole elites. Acknowleging she has ANY power would put him on the outs of the club. He still thinks tea party conservatives will be an easy vote because of the alternative. Boy, have I got news for this boy.

Within the GOP-E, Sarah Palin is anathema.

Why? She exposed the corruption of the Alaskan GOP.

That cannot be forgiven.

She was good for 10 million votes for McLoser in 2008, and she was responsible for the Tea Party siuccess in 2010, when no one in the GOP-E would even align themselves with the Tea Party. Thanks to Sarah’s advocacy for the Tea Party and her advocacy for conservative candidates across the US in 2010, John Boehner is the Speaker of the House and not Nancy Pelosi.

To thank her, the GOP-E treats here like a leper.

My fervent hope is that on Novemebr 7th, regardless of who wins, a third party is established in this country for Conservatives, so we can make the GOP go the way of the Whigs. It is my opinion that the GOP in the long run cannot be saved; in the short run, it is the only vehicle available to us to save America in 95 days.

Sarah, conservatives, and the candidates that win elections thanks to her star power will form the nucleus of this new party and consign K Street Republicans to the dustbin of history.

They have had their time and failed. It is our time now.

Allen West would seem to me to be a good choice; but I don’t know for sure. Sarah Palin was a target for a media that refused to vet Obama; she made him look like Ned in the Third Reader.

Palin Slams Media, Says She's 'Comfortable' Not Speaking at Convention

In a wide-ranging interview with FNC's Eric Bolling yesterday, Governor Sarah Palin said that the Romney camp has been in touch regarding the convention, but that nothing is yet confirmed. She also said that she "just want[s] to help" and, like Newt Gingrich, is comfortable with the idea of "speaking or not."

The video is below. This excerpt starts at 3:20:

Sometimes helping means you step aside and certainly you don’t invite yourself into a leadership or speakership type role at a convention like this. You try to work with the strategy the campaign has in place, and evidently Romney's campaign has a strategy that they will implement. And whether I'm there or not as a speaker, I'm comfortable either way just like Newt Gingrich said he was comfortable either way -- speaking or not.

Palin also made clear that she and Governor Romney have a good relationship:

Speaking personally, there is no hatchet to bury or olive branch that needs to be passed between Mitt Romney and myself. We have a good relationship and I have great respect for him and I am so thankful the GOP has a strong candidate who understands the private sector and what it takes to get the economy roaring again.

This is gracious of the Governor, but I personally think Romney would be insane not to give the biggest and most effective star in the conservative movement the best speaking slot he possibly can.

Like 2010, 2012 is going to be a turn out/base election and no one turns us conservatives out like Sarah Palin.

Also of note in the interview is what the Governor had to say about the corrupt media:

I and others warned GOP strategists and GOP candidates that no matter who that GOP nominee would be coming out of our primary process, they would have to run against -- not just President Obama and his billion dollar campaign war chest … this nominee of ours would have to run against the lapdogs in the mainstream media and the yellow journalism they practice. ….

The irony I think is that so many in the GOP establishment sat back on the sidelines -- they were just kind of sucking it all in when this was happening to other people in the party in the last four years. Now they’re getting a taste of it and they’re realizing what it is we've been warning them about. The media attacking Palin and her family is just evil being evil. I will, however, never forgive those in the Republican Party who stood on the sidelines as this was happening. And the ones who joined in can go straight to hell.

Deep breath.

Okay, to Palin's point about the media's behavior towards Mitt Romney, she's exactly right. All those wobbly Republicans who think the media can be appeased by a more moderate candidate or moderate positions are being proved wrong this very day. The media's in full-throated destroy mode against this Massachusetts Moderate, just as they would have been had we nominated someone more conservative.

To Romney's great credit, he understand this and isn't jumping into media traps as we saw McCain do time and again in 2008.

But when I hear my fellow Republicans affirm a media narrative about Romney's taxes or how he handled the press corps during his overseas trip, that's the same old dangerous ignorance at play that foolishly assumes that surrendering to narratives is a way to appease the media when, in fact, that surrender is really a trap.

Nothing will ever placate the media. Romney could've answered a gajillion questions asked by the crybaby press corps, and they still would've manufactured whatever they had to in order to declare his overseas venture a failure. Romney could release every tax return he's filed since birth, and the media would still manufacture a way to paint his as shady and dishonest.

The polls show that Romney is doing just fine. He's keeping Obama under 50, well under 50, and has 97 days to roll out the ideas that will show voters he's the acceptable alternative to this complete failure of a president. Romney can also start to finally spend all this money he's been precluded from spending until the convention -- which is only 25 days away.

To: 2ndDivisionVet; All

I think Romney should pick her as “Energy Secretary”. She has a lot of experience in that area .. and she is a definite reformer. This is one of the magic pills needed to get the energy dept headed in the right direction. And .. she should have carte blanc to FIRE ANY AND ALL FORMER OBAMA APPOINTEES.

After she gets through cleaning up Energy, she could start on EPA or GSA; or maybe all of the rest of Obama’s “czars’” criminal activity.

This leaves Mitt free to get the country moving by lowering taxes and removing burdensom regulations for small businesses .. instead of having to do the dirty work of cleaning up the mess Obama has left behind.

I love Cheney, but he’s wrong about who was the “mistake” on the ‘08 ticket .. it wasn’t Sarah.

The main secret is getting repubs, conservatives, etc., to the polls so we can clean out the Congress too. If we don’t get a reformer-attitude congress this next go-around - we could be in for a lot of trouble. We need enough of them to outshout the old timers who think they know everything - but they’re actually a real part of the problem.

And .. maybe we need a new Speaker of the House .. somebody who is not so friendly with the corrupt and disgusting dems who want to tear this country apart .. and deep-sixing that monstrousity of Obamacare.
