I don’t know how true it is, but it was said that the Romney camp was behind some of the smears and trash digging on Sarah. If so, he reaped what he sowed. Yes, I would have rather had Mitt than Zero, but, just saying..........He also deliberately left her out of the RNC and the Paulbots too. THat’s why he lost so many GOP voters. I’m not a huge fan of Ron Paul, but he did have quit a significant following that should have been brought into the tent.
The worst attacks on Palin, when they came from Repubs, the Repub almost always turned out to be a romniac.
Similarly, the worst attacks on the tea party, when they came from Repubs, the Repub almost always turned out to be a romniac.
I don't know that Romney was behind it. But Repubs who attacked Palin and Repubs who attacked the tea party almost always were Romney supporters.
This is a big reason it was so tough for some conservatives to get behind Romney. Well, that, and his record in Massachusetts. I voted for him in the general but it meant eating some of my words from earlier on when I had said I'd never vote for the guy. I learned to like Romney during the election, but I still don't like romniacs. They can take a flying leap.
But the party-first ABO crowd said that Team Romney did not need their votes...
