Posted on 02/01/2016 8:15:26 AM PST by Hojczyk
Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin joined the Today show to talk about her endorsement of Donald Trump as Iowans go to caucus tonight for the Republican presidential primary.
is was probably a tough call for you, between Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)97% and Donald Trump, began Savannah Guthrie during the interview.
t wasnât tough,â Palin interrupted.
Really, Guthrie replied.
No, it wasnât tough, she repeated.
Palin explained that she was happy to endorse Ted Cruz in his Senate race, because he was a fighter for the American people but that she wanted him to stay in Washington D.C.
want to keep him in the Senate, and I want Donald Trump to be our president, she said.
Guthrie asked Palin if Trump was necessarily âthe godly candidateâ for evangelical voters.
I hope voters arenât trying to find the most Christian-y godliest candidate out there because who are we to judge one anotherâs level of faith â our Christian quotient if you will, she said.
Host Matt Lauer suggested that perhaps Donald Trump wasnât enough of a true conservative, citing his Democratic record.
Palin referred to Ronald Reagan, pointing out that she was âgladâ that Donald Trump was a candidate that had âseen the light.â
Later in the show, Palin was asked by co-host Willie Geist about what she brought to Donald Trumpâs campaign by endorsing him.
Iâm very, very conservative, very much a right-winger, proudly clinging to my God, my guns and my Constitution, she said. âI think I speak for a lot of Americans who have those same values.â

anybody know what Reagan supported before he became rep?
i guess that would be hard to find.
dems have been liberal for a long time.
Seems like he saw the light some time in the ‘60s, i would guess, without looking.
Reagan assisted with identifying communist influence in Hollywood in the early 1950s. He was a dem, but no liberal.
Follow the money...
Reagan formally changed his party ID in 1962 and endorsed Goldwater in ‘64.
Legislator vs executor
i was born in ‘68 but figured he had be governor staring in the 60s.
i know, it would take five second to look up :)
Do you mean “executive”?
Kinduv a scary post, yours.
Yes, I saw something from Bristol that leads to believe you are right.
Worth a look to help clean up the ‘and” in your postings.
I'm still undecided on whether to back Trump or Cruz in the primaries, but Palin's endorsement of one vs. the other means absolutely nothing to me.
Well if it's just about who offers you the best deal I suppose you'd be better off negotiating with Cruz than Trump.
Reagan was raised in a Dem family like I was and I saw the light because of Reagan. So folks can cast me like they do Trump but I don’t care because I know who I am:-)

bottom of 3rd column
“Reagan, although then a registered Democrat, campaigned vigorously for Richard M. Nixon’s presidential bid against John F. Kennedy.”
So, what is it that the chief executive does, when he is doing the executive thing.
Does he/she not execute the law as it is legislated?
