Palin Endorses Romney... Sort Of..
ABC News ^ | 11/5/12

Posted on 11/06/2012 5:30:14 AM PST by Kinder Gentler Machinegun Hand

With less than 24 hours to go until Election Day, former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin endorsed Mitt Romney.

After remaining silent for months, Palin made her case for the GOP ticket in a Facebook posting, arguing that Romney "deserves a chance to lead."

......

In contrast, her former running mate, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., has been a tireless advocate for Romney.

Palin's support has been more tepid. While shying away from officially using the word "endorse," Palin has made it known that she stands with her party. According to recent filings with the Federal Election Commission, Palin's political action committee donated $5,000 to the Romney campaign on Oct. 31.

She has done much in the past four years getting the more conservative candidate to win the primary. But that’s where it ends. Her name was prevalent in many contexts a year ago here. Now she’s seldom mentioned.

Any news about Sarah “filtered” through ABC News should be taken with some skepticism.

Actually, I still like her, but in no way do I see her as a driving political force in real-conservative politics anymore.....more like a cheerleader, now. She had a chance and demurred....

Palin endorsed a candidate in the primary for US Senator here in Missouri.

Of the three main contenders that person came in third.

You fell right into ABS’s liberal bias trap. Sarah has been supporting Romney for quite a while now. If only lukewarm. So am I lukewarm. But I already voted for Romney/Ryan.

She’s never been keen on Romney — and why should she, with Romney operatives sabotaging her even before the end of the 2008 elections? — but she likewise has always been up-front about being “ABO”. Her statements of support have been vague, accordingly, and more focused on voting out Obama, so any kind of actual Romney endorsement is indeed an actual shift.

And other candidates she endorsed/supported won their primaries (e.g., Ted Cruz in TX). You win some, you lose some; but on the whole, her track record is pretty good.

At this time, before Romney has a chance to perform as president, Sarah will not support him beyond expressing her preference for him over Obama.

She has always been skeptical that he’s conservative enough. She can’t say words now that she might have to eat later.

Sarah knows what she is doing.

While she has said "Go Vote against Ubama" and has made it very clear that Romney should be your choice.

She knows Moderate Mitt will end up betraying Conservatives if he gets in and if she goes around yelling "VOTE 4 ROMNEY" for 7 months than her credibly when she/we need to stand up to him will be shot.

She also knows that if Willard looses they will throw Paul Ryan overboard like the GOP-E did her and say "Conservatives are a drain on the ticket" and again she/we would all look like fools if we had been unquestionably supporting Romney.

Sarah's good American instincts serve her well and she knows the Party Machine when she sees it.

Go Sarah!

Her nich seems to be giving last minute endorsements to conservatives in Republican primaries.

I don't know of anybody who, as of last night, was still waiting for her direction in the presidential race.

I think Sarah’s turn in the limelight has past.

She has become irrelevant - particularly in her lack of leadership, influence and work.

She made her millions, bought a big house in Az.

Your welcome Sarah, and thank you for your service, sincerely.

...."She knows Moderate Mitt will end up betraying Conservatives if he gets in and if she goes around yelling "VOTE 4 ROMNEY" for 7 months"........

BINGO!

Does anybody believe Mitt will not revert to his NE liberal ways once in office? I wholeheartedly supported Dubya, but when the "kinder gentler" part came to the surface, what could we say? He was certainly better than the alternative, but we ended up with no fence, drug programs, and a ton of debt.

What will she say when Mittens appoints another liberal SCOTUS or some other nonsense from Massachusetts? Mitt was not and still is not my first choice, why act as though he hung the moon? Sarah has very good political instincts and knows we are about to pay a price for removing Obama. If Mitt is tied right now, how would we get a conservative elected?

Palin endorsed Shara Steelman in the Missouri Senate primary. Todd Akin won that primary.

Akin made a gaffle shortly after the primary. Palin condemned him and has never retracted her statement.

Akin is very conservative and is running against Claire McCaskel an ultra liberal who voted 95% of the time with 0bama including 0bamacare.

Perhaps Palin thought that if Akin would withdraw her candidate would replace him. She may have been ignorant of Missouri's Sore Losers Law.

Just another reason to never donate to a PAC.

This last minute endorsement makes me wonder why she even did it all?

Keep in mind that the first thing Newt did after dropping out was to call Romney and offer “to help in any way he could.” He and Santorum then went out and worked for Romney.

And Sarah? She offers a half hearted endorsement with less than 24 hours to go before the election is decided.

Sarah has been meeting with evangelical groups on Romney’s behalf. To me, this is probably a difficult task because some of our evangelical brothers and sisters believe Mormons are a sect, therefore, not Christians.

Some of these brothers and sisters refuse to be swayed by Billy Graham. My guess is that can a tough job.

She got her revenge.

Remember her Bus Tour to Nowhere? On the day in New Hampshire where Romney officially announces his candidacy for the presidency, Sarah showed up only miles away in the Palin bus to steal his thunder.

Not a huge fan of Romney, but just sayin....

I do.

Mitt has clearly shown he knows the difference between state issues and federal issue.

The story came out that he tried to talk a woman out of having an abortion. That has meaning.

I believe he's going to dedicate himself to building a strong economy. If he succeeds we'll be looking at holding the White House till 2020. And I think we'll be happy we have Mitt.

Some people on this thread are PDSers.

This Tuesday our country’s future is in our hands.

She made her endorsement clear and has all along:
PALIN:" No no no no! Please go vote! Let me ask you — man, do me a favor. If this go-around you don’t know who you dislike more or like more, Romney or Obama — this go-around, give Romney a shot.

We don’t want to repeat the failed policies of President Obama. That’s insanity, to repeat the same failures over and over again and expect a different result."

Palin: "If this go-around you don’t know who you dislike more or like more, Romney or Obama — this go-around, give Romney a shot."

"if you don't know who you dislike more??? Romney or Obama" In comparison, here is how she endorsed Cruz in Texas:

“We’re proud to join conservatives in Texas and throughout the nation in supporting your campaign to become the next Senator from the Lone Star State.” “Your conservative principles, passionate defense of our Constitution and our free market system come at a time when these cornerstones of our freedom and prosperity are under attack,” Governor Palin added. “Our shared goal isn’t just to change the majority in control of the Senate, but to assure principled conservatives like you are there to fight for us.”

I think that is why they referred to this as "sort of" an endorsement.

The quote you posted to back up your claim sounded like the high school cheerleader telling you the night before the dance, “I don’t know if I would hate going to the prom worse with him or with you. But I will go with you.”

On the other hand, Palin’s endorsement of Cruz was clear.’

I think we can all agree that her “endorsement” of Romney was late and.... weak.

The Palin endorsement has been the most important endorsement in America for 4 years, only an idiot or a party hack would try to call that the kiss of death.

It is a falsehood to separate Evangelicals.

ALL Christian denominations agree that Mormonism is not Christian, the Roman Catholic church, the Greek Orthodox, Mainline Protestants, and Evangelical Protestants. ALL!

If you are a Christian who belongs to a church, then your church agrees as well.

My wife and I just literally finished praying for Mitt Romney. We have been praying for weeks now that the people's eyes would open to the evil in the WH and we would turn from our wicked ways. My problem with Mitt is he is a Mormon. He isn't an evil man, as a matter of fact, most Mormons are kind, helpful, patriotic, ect. The problem is that he is misled. If he can be fooled into the Mormon cult, it shows that the Holy Spirit is not his conscience. Just as we pray for our children and family to have the Holy Spirit come into their hearts, we, as Christians must pray that our leaders be led in the same way. As a man, he may try to force himself to do good and be good, but without God, he will always fail. If and when he is in the WH at 3am being told our country in is danger, I want the supernatural to be in charge because a man will buckle almost every time. As governor, He was the same man he is now. He was an observant Mormon that didn't drink coffee or cokes, I feel sure he was true to his wife, I'm sure he was a trustworthy man that meant what he said. But he was pro abortion. IMHO, the consensus in liberal Mass was too much for him to guard his soul and his thoughts against. The Bible tells us "You will know them by their fruit" and killing babies should shout what is in their hearts. If Mitt can be tossed back and forth depending on where he is and what day it is, I have to wonder what he will do at 3am with missiles on their way. Will he take a poll and decide killing babies isn't so bad? Will he decide people having sex with feces doesn't sound so bad? We can always justify our actions if we have no core.

Now I'm not saying I voted for Obama. I'm just saying that Mitt needs an encounter with the True Vine, The Way, The King, The true Lord, and I am praying for that encounter. I prayed for GW Bush, and even Clinton. As you can see, Clinton is talking about getting caught in cookie jars and accusing Romney of not telling the truth. Can he say these things without repentance? We all watched him lie on TV and get impeached, yet he feels he did nothing wrong. A lost person is absolutely blind and deaf and it is most dangerous to have one in the WH.

Just as an aside, in the recent past we saw Obama supporters chant "OBAMA!, OBAMA!, OBAMA!, while McCain supporters chant "USA!, USA!, USA!" I'm sure Obama supporters are disappointed in what has transpired in the last 4 years. To have faith in Romney to do the right thing is useless if he doesn't know the right thing.

To fix our country, we need to pray for our leaders, pray for our country, and pray for revival in the land. If we had revival, we would not need to worry about what leaders would be selected and what they would do. We would select the right leaders and they would know what the Will of God was for our country. I think most people are tired of voting for the lesser of two evils.

Sarah Palin on FaceBook

August 11

Congratulations to Mitt Romney on his choice of Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate. President Obama has declared that this election is about “two fundamentally different visions” for America. Goodness, he’s got that right. Our country cannot afford four more years of Barack Obama’s fundamentally flawed vision. We must now look to this new team, the Romney/Ryan ticket, to provide an alternate vision of an America that is fiscally responsible, strong, and prosperous – an America that understands and is proud of her exceptional place in the world and will respect those who fight to secure that exceptionalism, which includes keeping our promises to our veterans. ...

... Candidate Obama promised us a “fundamentally transformed” America, and that is the only promise he’s delivered on. We can see now what his idea of “hope” is. Now we want change. He has failed to lead, so We the People must lead. And our leadership starts at the ballot box on November 6th.

Please continue to focus on the presidential race and on helping Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, but it’s also imperative that we get involved in the nation’s important House and Senate races. These candidates need our help to ensure that our next president has a responsible and ethical Congress that actually gets things done for America. Now on to November!

First of all, compare Palin’s statement about the Romney/Ryan ticket to the endorsements she has given countless others. One is very forceful and definite. Her Romney endorsement hardly mentioned his name. Her mantra was always, “Anybody but Obama.”

As a matter of fact, I remember people here bragging that Palin did NOT give her full throated endorsement to Mitt Romney...

“Glad she didn’t do it... she would lose her credibility... Plus he will blame her if he loses.....But I hope Romney picks her for VP....”

And many people were asking if she was going to speak at convention. Of course my question was always: .... why should Romney allow anyone to speak at the convention who had not endorsed him? What would she have said at Romney’s convention? “Now join me in working hard to elect Anybody But Obama!”

Sarah Palin has made many high profile endorsements.... she knows how to do it and how to fake it.

And let’s not pretend. This was weak.... and very late.
