The attacks on Gov. Palin were led by Romney and
his surrogates out of PRIDE, GREED and ENVY.
“Where are the strong ?
Who are the Trusted? “
And Team Clinton and Team Obama were just piling on? They were the Axis of Evil in that election.
That was a rumor spread by a campaign consultant whose firm worked for McCain. I'm not aware that Romney ever attacked attacked Palin himself, and there was enough backbiting from McCain loyalists against Palin that you don't have to hypothesize any Romneyite conspiracy behind the scenes (plus, I'm pretty sure that if Romney were involved, greed wouldn't have been a motive with all the money he has).
