In a statement to THE WEEKLY STANDARD, former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin offers some advice for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, this year's Republican ticket for president and vice president, respectively.
"With so much at stake in this election, both Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan should 'go rogue' and not hold back from telling the American people the true state of our economy and national security," says Palin. "They need to continue to find ways to break through the filter of the liberal media to communicate their message of reform."
Palin also suggests that Romney and Ryan can be responsible for an epiphany on this country's fiscal standing. "America desperately needs to have a 'come to Jesus' moment in discussing our big dysfunctional, disconnected, and debt-ridden federal government," says Palin.
"It is nothing short of appalling that President Obama couldn't even remember how much our national debt is during his interview with David Letterman the other night. Even my 10-year-old daughter knows that it's $16 trillion, and unlike Obama, she's not responsible for adding trillions to it. Obama casually told America that we don't have to worry about our debt in the 'short term.' Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan need to ask him how long that 'short term' will last."
Palin adds that Romney and Ryan are being "counted on" to get this right.
"At the founding of our country, a great American patriot wrote, 'If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace,'" says Palin. "Obama's motto seems to be, 'Let the good times roll in my day. The kids can deal with the catastrophic bankruptcy in theirs.' That's no way for the leader of a great nation to behave, and I hope Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney continue to call him out on it. Generations of American children are counting on them."
So he needs to do something bomb proof (which the media can not refute on O’s behalf) that the media can not ignore.
Failing that, time for the super PACs to start spending money in an ad blitz (if Romnutz won't defend himself, we must).
And she should’ve run.
If Palin was really let loose McNut would have been the President and most of this King Obama shi! would have never happened.
Is she still “Ready to Serve”?
That was their original plan but they been overwhelmed with questions about Romney’s stupid statements instead. Instead tell Romney to stop shooting his own side so he is freed up to do this.
CNN picked up the story too:
Right now she is clearly supporting Romney-Ryan.
It’s time for Palin-fans to follow her example.
Romney needs to pretend Obama is Palin or Cain or Gingrich and take no prisoners.
Destroy them...I mean him (obama that is).
I was going to disagree with Sarah for once but the context
“With so much at stake in this election, both Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan should ‘go rogue’ and not hold back from telling the American people the true state of our economy and national security,”
makes the headline misleading. Once again. she’s right.
Or maybe to simply do the intelligent thing for its own sake
and not bother about what celebrities or politicians think.
Those pukes will NOT tell me what to think, ready-to-serve or not.
And she is also saying that one has to”go rogue” to escape even the Republicans on national tv. Truth: there is no real conservative in the public eye who verbally approves of most of the moves of the R party. Sad that there isn’t a PROUD conservative party.
“maybe to simply do the intelligent thing for its own sake”
That would be novel for many!
That’s a really nice picture of Palin at the link. I wish we could post it here but it’s a Getty image.
Unfortunately, the GOP picked him because they know he doesn’t have the guts.
Sarah Palin deserves a ton of credit for, on the one hand, helping deflect rank-and-file criticism away from candidates Romney and Ryan, and on the other hand, for helping to shore up Pubbie support. Thanks smoothsailing.
Romney and his staffs secret leaks to the MSM which started the attacks on Sarah was one of the reasons we were burdened with Obama. He put his political ambitions over the good of the Country. I will not thank him for that by voting for him.
Is the DU slow today ????
Keep your divide and conquer crap to yourself !
