Skip to comments.Palin: Tea partiers have 'no choice' but Romney; 'Of course they're going w/ anybody but Obama'
Posted on 08/13/2012 1:19:38 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
After a long and sharply contested GOP primary battle, many Republicans, conservatives and tea-party types have been left questioning whether they can, in good conscience, vote for Mitt Romney in November.
Romneys statements as a former advocate of legalized abortion, his hotly contested record on same-sex marriage and his health-care reforms while governor of Massachusetts sometimes maligned as Romneycare have left conservatives uncertain if the presumptive Republican nominee is really one of their own.
Tea-party darling and former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, however, is basically dismissing the concerns, telling Fox News Channels Shannon Bream that Romney has the Republican Partys conservative base in the bag.
On Americas News Headquarters over the weekend, host Bream asked Palin if Romneys choice of Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., as running mate would help persuade those not completely sold on the name at the top of the GOP ticket...

This election is the last exit ramp before the cliff.
It may very well be too late as it is, but if we take this exit, we’ll have a few more years, at least, before it all comes crashing down. The math can’t be denied.
I still wish she’d have run, but Palin convinced me long ago that ABO was the only answer.
She’s a coward...she’s selling out her soul...she’s GOP -e...she’s a liberal RINO...help me out here...that’s about all I can come up with.
As usual, Palin makes good sense.
She’s obviously no-good baby killing RINO scum.....
Can’t believe she didn’t go all-in for Virgil whatsisname.
She must have been reading my posts for the past year.
Obama again would mean the end of America as we know it. The beacon for freedom would be extinguished - permanently. I’m beginning to think that Romney wants to be not just president, but a “successful” two-term president, regardless of what he accomplishes. If we can put him in office with an overwhelmingly conservative House and a republican Senate, both of which are very likely, then I think he will follow their lead just to get accomplishments and a legacy that the history books can cite in his favor. Romney is not a conservative, not even “severely conservative” despite his claims otherwise. Still, President Romney might follow Candidate Romney’s lead in that direction if he has a Congress that forces him in that direction.
We have to remove Obama from office..we have no choice in the matter. I am no fan of Romney, never liked him, never will, but we have to defeat Obama. Obama is a Communist and his thugs want this country destroyed. The Communist Party USA already said recently that now is a great time to be a Communist in this country. We dont have a choice because our country is at the brink of tyranny. Obama’s supporters are scared, scared that they might lose, God knows what they will do between now and November to stop the election from taking place, now is truly scary times
“Shes a coward...”
bk you off your meds again ?
I’m still a free man and gave up caring what the popular kids think in middle school.
Don’t you mean Wrong Paul? Or Tom Halfling?
I don't know..lost your sense of humor again?
A Pawn of Evil!
(What a fellow Freeper called me last week.)
See my tagline.
Whoa! Saint Sarah Has SPOKEN!!
That oughta make some heads pop around here.
The damage done by FDR, LBJ, BHO and years of liberal (Rat and RINO) Congress rule has put this nation into an unrecoverable death spiral. The gimme gimme gimme mindset answered with more and more permanent entitlements and handouts has turned the culture into parasites who cannot exist on their own anymore.
Don't forget the American voters. If it is unrecoverable they have a lot to do with it.
The analogy that I’ve heard best describe it is that of a black hole. We’ve passed the even horizon and can’t get out, but we have yet to be sucked down its throat.
Folks like to say 2012 is the most important election of our lifetimes. I tend to disagree. 2008 was the most important. And America lost. The malignancy is fully embedded in the system now. 2012 is a bit of an anti-climax, as the country slides at an ever-quickening pace in its economic, social and cultural decay. I’m not going to humor myself into the delusion of believing Romney, the most embarrassingly conviction-less, flipflopping politician I’ve ever seen, is some kind of cure-all.
Uh Oh....she’s supporting....gasp....a Mormon
I think Ayn Rand had a good quote related to this, which goes something like: “You can ignore reality, but you can’t ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.”
gotta love Sarah!!!!!
Those heads popped long ago.
That sounds eerily like Karl Rove:
"Of COURSE they'll vote Republican, where ELSE are they gonna go?"
That’s about the best succinct analysis of the present situation and how it came to this as I’ve seen in a very long time.
Well done, Sir.
What else is she going say when asked? She does not want to be blamed for getting zero back in. So when asked she will say yea R ticket. but got for Congress as well. She will not go all out for top of ticket. Her heart is not in it. But the alternative is zero back again and that makes us all want to upchuck even more than Romney (who makes me vomit a little).
When I'm at work, I like to keep my mouth shut about my political leanings (although my truck's bumper stickers shout it out loud and clear), but I like to get my coworkers talking about their thoughts, just so I can get a clear picture of what the opposition is thinking and planning.
After this weekend's announcement, all of the liberals are in full panic mode. I heard everything from dumping Biden to overwhelming Facebook, Twitter, and the Internet with rumors and suppositions about Ryan and his credibility. It looks like it'll be an interesting couple of months between now and November.
How the hell do you know her heart isn’t in it?
I am getting very, very worried about the course of the direction this nation is going. If Obama is re-elected, we could very well end up having a second American revolution.
They have everything to do with it.
As they did in 2010.
See my new tagline.
“Obamas supporters are scared, scared that they might lose, God knows what they will do between now and November to stop the election from taking place, now is truly scary times”
Yep. While some prefer to debate the shades of conservatism the other side is going nuclear. I expect something big before November. Like war with Iran or Romneys full tax returns leaked.
If the dims win in November and get “flexibility” America as we know it is over. Barry will be free to pack the court and hit us with every nutty pinko scheme they have dreamed of for a hundred years.
There is ALWAYS a choice — including at the convention.
Mr. RomneyCARE is not yet the candidate.
Either way, he's neatly backed himself into a political corner on the issue.
No way he'd be able to execute another flip-flop and remain politically unscathed.
Don't forget the American voters. If it is unrecoverable they have a lot to do with it.
Almost 67 million of them voted for Obama in 2008
They are still out there, voting, having babies and teaching them all they know.
Fortunately I live in MA so I will NOT be voting for Romney as it will make no difference. I guess if I were in a swing state I would hold my nose.
“Don’t forget the American voters. If it is unrecoverable they have a lot to do with it.”
A big chunk of the vote base now consists of the perpetually stupid, Marxists, and a rapidly growing parasite class.
>> I think Ayn Rand had a good quote related to this, which goes something like: You can ignore reality, but you cant ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.
You’re right — and thanks for the new tagline! :-)
I expect something big to go down too. No way will Obama go down graciously, if he knows he is going to lose he will sit back and watch this country burn to the ground. He doesn’t care, his supporters don’t care. For them this is about the total destruction of America and if they feel they are going to get their asses handed to them they will stop at nothing to take America down with them. Mark Levin understands this, that is why he is supporting the Romney/Ryan ticket, yet people bash Sarah Palin for supporting the same ticket. This is NOT about supporting Romney, this is about saving America. Did I want Romney to be the nominee, no! Really can’t stand the guy, but what else are we supposed to do, sit back and watch the Commies take over, this is our last chance to save America, I wont and refuse to live in Tyranny
***Governor Palin has more common sense, and more economic sense than many people who are against supporting the only nominee we ended up with.***
If I could, I can tell a parable told to me that mimics our political situation.
Forty years ago, A co-worker was working a construction job deep in the Algerian desert. One day their water system broke and they had nothing to drink except beer for a week while repairs were being made.
One man with a Christian upbringing refused to drink the beer.
After three days in the hot Sahara desert heat, he was swilling down beer with everyone else.
Question: Who would you rather have a President for the next four years?
A successful business man who happens to be a memeber of a cultic church and hopes to be a god?
A man who spent the last twenty or so years in a “Christian” church listening to GOD DAMN AMERICA sermons and thinks he is GOD.
There is lots against Romney I don’t like, especially his liberalism. If he is elected we must also make sure to have a Congress that can set on him like a monkey on his back.
Maybe the GOP will broker a new candidate we all can accept! Wonder what her name would be?
May God give us strength.
