You haven’t told us the conservative that you support.

Wait, you’re accusing me of being a Romney supporter?

That’s what this is all about?

And I’m the one exhibiting “fuzzy” thinking. I suggest you read my posting history, then come back and apologize for missing the mark.

Hilarious.

Conservatives trust Palin - so to say otherwise, you are smearing conservatives.

I'm conservative and I don't trust anyone who campaigns for McCain. I guess some "conservatives" are a lot more comfortable with hypocrisy than others.

She is showing very poor judgment, IMO, by campaigning for the King of the RINOs and the Ambassador of Amnesty.

Maybe you're right. Time will tell. But what if what you characterize as 'spin' is simply an understanding by Palin supporters that she is more than these unfortunate associations with McLame. What if it's about the painful recognition of the larger context. For example, I can only imagine the kind of howling we would hear that Juan is good enough to run with but not good enough to campaign for.. with the implication she's a political animal and untrustworthy. And just to complete the thought, what about the somewhat familiar notion that if someone of character is forced by circumstance to confront a difficult situation that over time, more good can arise and for more people than could possibly have been foreseen. She did after all, use the term going rogue and I for one will give her my support until something truly warrants otherwise. G-d help us through these terrible times.

“If romney gets the nomination palin will have herself to blame”

I think that would be the voters fault, at least by rational thinking anyway.

There is a reason why conservatives have had one conservative nominee since 80. They are always easily divided.

Step away from the keyboard. You aren't thinking clearly if you think I'm a Romney supporter on any level. Hell, I was bashing Scott Brown and his liberal support of RomneyCare the night he was elected and much of FR was jumping for joy.

I don't have an “obsession” with “Sarah”. I'd vote for her over Romney in a millisecond. That doesn't mean I can't question her bad decision on McCain.

by attacking fellow FReepers for questioning her judgment. Neat trick there.

Oh stop with your 'cozy' fellow Freepers - and ACTING like a victim! No one is attacking you. Your liberal roots are showing! If you can't handle TRUTH - you are on the wrong site! There is NO trick - only a lib would think like that - conservatives use TRUTH, not trick tactics - fuzzy man!

also puzzles me.

You are puzzled because you are clueless and that others can see right through you and YOUR TACTICS.

Now go cry about your disappointment some where else - it nauseating to conservatives.

At this point, Palin, but I’ve yet to make any decision on 2012 until I see the candidate pool. I also really like James Inhofe, but I’m pretty sure he isn’t Presidential material, or even has those aspirations.

Who do you support on this litmus test?

Or, perhaps McGore can flip Palin on the global warming BS that he still believes in to this day? Anything is possible, I suppose.

Oh please! They both endorsed McCain - and McCain wouldn't ask him to campaign for him because he NEEDS the conservative vote and Sarah is #1 in that area. Why would he want a liberal campaigning for him? MrRomneyCARE wouldn't go over AT ALL - it's more of a deficit. Who would show up for Mitt? LOL!!

There is never going to be a perfect candidate. Just like there is never going to be a perfect athlete in sports. and no one will ever have a perfect marriage or a perfect life.

My wife and I disagree on a lot of things and sometimes clash. It’s ok.

Michael Jordan couldn’t make every game winning shot.

I have no idea what you are talking about, and it's probably best if we never communicate again.

I do want it put out there that I am no liberal, 6 years of posting history will certainly back that up, and I don't appreciate being smeared as one by this poster on a conservative forum.

Well, there is a distinctly more conservative choice running against McCain, and I want him to defeat McCain in the primary.

So, this is a pretty big deal to some conservatives. The Palin Bots just are too focused on defending Palin than actually advancing conservatism in this case.

I hope Palin, in her appearances with McLame speaks to all the points he is weak on, including personal character. It could, with a little finesse be a stump for Hayworth. I guess that sounds a bit naive. In fact I think it is.

Perhaps “presently” can realize that not every conservative is happy about Palin choosing McCain over a real conservative candidate. Or, they can continue to talk about “outing” posters and such in some feeble attempt to shut down the debate by using the Alinsky model.

Yes, we're apparently the liberals/RINOs for daring to question Palin endorsing/campaigning for a RINO over Hayworth. Quite the leap in logic, but I guess defending Palin at all costs leads to these obvious contradictions.

On a side note, I recognize your name from the Brown threads when he was elected. We were both right about him from the get-go.

YOUR CONTINUOUS bashing a conservative, SARAH, is NOT considered discourse.

YOU think your non ending bashing of Sarah is going to stop SARAH from doing what she thinks is right? NO! And YOU KNOW IT - you just want to STOP her in general and smear her in anyway you can and are all wee wee’d up that can’t get a posse to play in your pit!

So much for YOU pointing a finger at a conservative for not doing the right thing! Hypocrisy knows no bounds!

YOUR continuous bashing of me, a conservative, is not considered discourse either.

The problem for you is that “bashing” (your word) Palin is actually on-topic. You just don't like it, so you are lashing out at me and others. The problem is, “bashing” me is not the theme of the thread, and it is not at all on-topic.

Actually, that's the entire point of this thread. You decided to make me your focus, however.

Yet you're quick to lie and smear a long-time poster here for not being happy about it and expressing my displeasure.

But this is YOUR CHANCE to trash her and spent hours doing it! Your agenda is known and is in the FAIL column - right w/your ‘victim’ whining!

Again with the lying. I'd have been out of this thread long ago if you hadn't started lying about my "agenda". I have a posting history. Either read it, or if you don't, stop making wild accusations based out of nothing other than ignorance. I notified the moderators because typically these personal smears are not allowed. You seem very emotional, so perhaps you are letting your frustration get the best of you.

Isn't this what we're trying to get rid of, politicians supporting a position because they "owe" someone? Isn't this what Obama is doing, getting politicians to give their support because they "owe" Obama for favors given?

Palin, like everyone else, should stand by her convictions, not who she "owes".

I've been thinking a lot about this issue, and I understand that Palin may feel a certain obligation.

At some point, and in light of the way McCain treated her specifically and treats conservatives and conservatism generally, I don't think she owes McCain anything at all.

I understand loyalty, but loyalty to someone who is harmful to our freedom makes no sense at all. There is absolutely nothing in the world wrong with saying, "I know more now than I did then, and as a result, I can no longer support Mr. McCain".

At some point, those who want to lead us need to make it clear that they owe America more than they owe other politicians. If Palin can't see the damage that McCain has done and is responsible for, I question her judgment.

I question why quid pro quo with McCain is more important than electing a conservative to the Senate to help stem the erosion of our fundamental rights. The "you scratch my back & I'll scratch yours" mentality so many have has already done extensive damage to our nation.

I'm going to need answers to some of these questions before I can fully support Palin.

YOU decided you NEEDED to post ad nauseum about your displeasure about Sarah. Did you just wake up and find out her backing McCain? Do YOU really think conservatives don't know about HER DECISION that you NEED to keep harping on it - endlessly? And if anyone says they don't agree w/it but understand it - well THAT JUST ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU! You want blood!

You did the same for Brown - like conservatives didn't know he wasn't conservative - YOU NEEDED to harp on it! As if you have some 'claim' on truth - and conservatives are clueless.

You have an obsession with 'appearing' right with your finger pointing and can't handle when the finger is pointed at you! YOU run into your 'victim' status.

I'd have been out of this thread long ago if you hadn't started lying about my "agenda"

What a twist but thanks for telling me I have SO MUCH POWER over you!

I didn't lie about you - I merely told you the truth that you can't handle! Long-time meets nothing - you hang onto that as your security blanket as if it gives you some credibility because you KNOW you NEED it! You turned your displeasure for SARAH into an obsession.

To repudiate Palin two years after for supporting McCain's Senatorial campaign doesn't speak well of the loyalty, cohesiveness and strength of the Republican ‘brand’.

Oh, yeah. Let's keep doing what we have been doing - supporting RINO's. Look how well it's worked so far.
