Skip to comments.Palin: ‘If Republicans Are Gonna Act Like Democrats, Then What’s the Use?’
Posted on 06/24/2014 8:09:57 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Sarah Palin joined Sean Hannity to weigh in on the latest election news, and Palin told Hannity that it would be hard for her to stay with the Republicans and get excited about them if they continue acting like Democrats and rolling over.
She took a shot at the status quo politics of people like Senator Thad Cochran and said the Eric Cantor upset shows people want strong constitutionalists in power who dont represent the man [or] the establishment in Washington.
Hannity asked Palin if she would actually follow through on her previous hints shed go third party. Palin replied, If Republicans are gonna act like Democrats, then whats the use? She said the GOP needs to thrive and stand strong against the presidents policies, otherwise it does no good to get all enthused about them anymore.
Watch the video below, via Fox News:
She’s right, after seeing Cochran win by being a slime ball who got Dem votes because he’s big Govt, what’s the point..the GOP Establishment is just another nice word for Liberal..they believe in the left’s same policies
C’mon Hannity. Of course Palin isn’t going to say she’s going to go 3rd party off the bat and show her hand. But she’s damn thinking about it, IMO.
Palin’s been talking 3rd party for a long time.
Only problem is, as we all know, it helps Dems. I say let’s take Reagan’s Republican Party back.
Very disappointed about McDaniel’s loss. I was sure he had it in the bag. All the polls looked good until right up to the end. McDaniel had national potential down the road and now his career is stalled. Any chance he could run a write in campaign? Not many people vote in run off elections!
Time to abandon the stinking ship, Sarah
Yup. FReepU GOPe!!
OK, you just saw a slimeball like Cochran and Haley Barbour go out and aggressively court black and liberal voters with more big government. Why the Hell would you still want to support the GOP?
“it helps the Democrats”
Getting to be a moot point when both parties are Democrats
It makes more sense for Gov. Palin to continue to find strong conservative Republican candidates and support them every way she can. And yes, I will say extra prayers that God sends us good leaders in 2014 and 2016!
What’s all this talk about a 3rd Party. There needs to be a 2nd Party first.
Exactly. I fail to see how a “Democrat-lite” party would appeal to anyone.
All of Cochran’s ads in the final days were about all the government money he brings to Missisippi. An appeal to big government is exactly how he drew in those black and liberal voters.
The GOP helps the Dems! For crying out loud, if these people dont see that after tonight, they’re idiots
This is despicable. Cochran should be hounded out of office for this.
Well, as I got hollered at for saying back when everyone was spiking the ball over Cantor’s defeat, there are going to be setbacks and disappointments as well as victories. For every race like todays where the incumbent prevails by a thin margin, there will be a handful of other incumbents shivering in their boots. And, when it’s an open primary like this, the dirty tricks element has to be considered.
It’s a marathon, not a sprint.
OK...so going 3rd party...and not going 3rd party.....
What Difference Does It Make?
I wonder how many people in the dem party are sick of the way the country is headed and would be drawn to vote for somebody who offered a real change? Like maybe somebody who actually believes in the rule of law?
Ya think there are many people in this country who just want to get the rule of law back?
BTW, this is the contact info if anybody wants to tell the GOP-e what we think of them buying democrat votes to negate the votes of the people they keep begging for money:
National Republican Senatorial Committee
425 2nd Street NE
Washington, D.C. 20002
Our phone number is:
No way to accomplish that. The GOPe and chamber of commerce hold the part apparatus strings and the financing.
Republicans acting like democrats..
Way I see it, looks like democrats pretending to be republicans
That’s the problem with open primaries: they allow scum bags like Cochran to win in the end.
And the polls favored Eric Cantor, too, as far as polls go.
If someone wants Democrats to vote for them, promising that they will promote THEIR platform.
What does that make them?
I am just sick!
Nah, they could have just waited and voted for the dem in the general to get the goods. What got them to the voting booth was the “walking money”. Wave money around in a trailer park and you can come up with a LOT of votes. And the statistics in this vote STRONGLY suggest that’s exactly what happened today.
Sick. Everybody should call the RSNC and tell them vote-buying is criminal and we’re sick of crooks.
National Republican Senatorial Committee

Cochran acting like a dim means it is highly likely there was vote fraud involved.
Of course, in this day and age, “racist comments” could mean anything. Maybe he opposed illegal immigration on his show. Maybe he was complaining about the “knockout game.” Maybe he was pitching voter ID.
Call the RNC and tell them to get their money where they get their votes....
...from the Dems and Amnesty backers.
Excellent reply. We need to hold are heads high and march on.
We’re not done tonight.
If anything this should make us stronger.
I for one am proud over all the good TEA party candidates springing up everywhere. Some have won, some didn’t. but there’ll be other races, too. I expect the TEA party to take over the GOP.
Back in 1976 I was so upset that Reagan lost his challenge to Ford, I voted for Jimmy. What a debacle!
But Reagan came back in 80 and I got to see him inaugurated! I even was on the military inauguration squad when I was stationed in DC in 1984 (although they cancelled all our outdoor activities due to the cold weather).
If I lived in Mississippi I would get out and vote for the dem running against Thad in November—back at cha Thad.
Yup.. Start a conservative party and let the rats/pubs split the giveme vote.
That would be handing the nation to the Marxist/progressive/Dems.
Property (including gun)confiscation, open borders, and a "living, breathing" Constitution.
Cochran will not win in November. That is sufficient.
Lets start with a second one first..
Tonight, the democrat and republican party fused together..
They are one.
Many here on F.R. and Many on other parts of the Internet have picked up the Memetic Mutation of "Uniparty"
You saw it here first, and you were the originals.
It's possible, but we all got mad when Lisa Murkowski did that. Let's just let the waste of skin campaign, and we can see by how much he loses on election day when some conservatives don't bother to check his box.
Either an Obamocrat or a Republocrat.
It's the Socialists against the Tea Party and Americans.
Ditto. I’ve decided if Alexander wins the primary in TN that I’ll stay at home for the general. No point in voting for leftwing Republicans. None.
MAybe McDAniel will do a Murkowski and run as an Independent in the general. Less likely the Dems who voted for Cockroach will do so in the general.
I'd stay home or skip it on the ballot. I can't vote for a leftist, period.
What’s so depressing is that these tactics work.
As long as the voting public allow themselves to be swayed by ads that appeal to the lowest common denominator, they’re going to wind up with a government similar to the one they have now.
Candidates that run low-class campaigns tend to become low-class politicians after the election.
Sarah, tonight was the rubicon. GOP resorted to Democrats to beat a conservative.
your continued intelligence to the GOP is now hurting conservatism. Please, for all our sales and the sakes of your long time supporters, end that intelligence NOW so that you can keep your long time supporters. Because personally, I am having a hard time sticking with someone who supports a party I am opposed to even it it is you.
It would be a cold day in hell before I’d ever vote for Cochran after that disgusting piece of commie propaganda. A very cold day.
This is the best view. Thad isn’t going to take things for granted. The tide is shifting. No time for defeatism.
I’d love to see some conservatives start winning on the East Coast.
And she’s right.
The GOP cannot reformed folks. It has to die.
I couldn’t vote for this turd myself.
We are learning hard lessons and eye openings
Nearly 60 years of assumptions shattered into dust
We cannot defeat the progressives via the GOP
Damn spell check——Alligence
Look at UKIP in England—That should be our pattern—NOT BUILD A THIRD PARTY BUT A SECOND PARTY! Liberty Party! USIP! Tea Party? What ever it is—if Sarah Palin makes the move I will follow!
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
