This goes to show that Palin and DeMint are NOT mutually exclusive as far as endorsements and 2012 prospects go.

I totally agree with that statement. So why do parade from thread to thread with the apparent goal of running down any conservative who isn't Sarah Palin?

Excellent podcast, thanks for posting.

DeMint’s remarks on the last time pubbies had the majority...”we had the numbers, we didn’t have the principles” is so spot on.

Yep, this is going to give the PDS platoon heartburn. Looking at the posts to the end, seems the new talking points from the PDS troopies have already been published.

DeMint shows he’s a class act. He shares an ability to challenge the radicals now in charge and doesn’t feel the need to rip on Palin in the process. Good true conservatives and I admire them both for speaking up and fighting for our country through this devastating time.

You got it wrong....many PDS attack Sarah by saying “look at Demint, He’s the true conservative...etc” they are the ones trying to divide people

I’ve got no beef with Demint, Barbour or others except for Romney the ultimate RINO, Huckaberry, some what of Newt and Daniels

So DeMint doesn’t want to be used by the MSM to attack Republicans? Wow. He’s no John McCain.

I mean that as a compliment.

I agree with you 100% on your statement. My question to the poster on #3 was aimed at him personally. Speaking for myself I favor Haley Barbour. I like Jim DeMint. I like Sarah Palin and while I don’t support her for a couple of reasons none of those reasons is a belief that she’s not a solid conservative. Indeed I refuse to say strongly negative things about her as she’s been piled on more than any politician I’ve ever seen in my life (with the possible exception of GWB).

Your statement about Romney and Huck is spot on. Same for Newt and Daniels.

I'm not running down other Conservatives, but I do pop balloons suggesting they have any chance as a top contender since it is plain as day that Sarah Palin is the ONLY one out of the bunch who has the energy, charisma, fighting spirit, Conservative bona fides, and political power with which to take on and defeat Obama and his Chicago goons in 2012.

DeMint can't do it. Barbour can't do it. Daniels can't do it.

Palin can, and even the Brits across the ocean have come to that realization.

Sarah Palin's Iowa trip points to 2012 presidential run

"Long before the contest has formally begun, Palin is fast on the way to becoming unstoppable."

No. You are not “popping balloons”. You are becoming the obnoxious face of Sarah Palin on FR.

Sarah Palin is indeed charismatic, energetic and conservative. She's also a nice lady. That's the view all but the lefties have of her. Now you have Virginia Ridgerunner coming along badmouthing any candidate other than Sarah. Do you really want it to get to a point on FR where when people think of Sarah Palin they think of YOU? I would hope not. What I'm trying to tell you is you are doing the woman more harm than you are good. You're acting EXACTLY like pissant acted during the candidacy of Duncan Hunter. Pissant became the face of Duncan Hunter on FR. We all know how well that served them both.

Which makes me wonder how pissant would act if Sarah Palin were on the top of the ticket and Duncan Hunter was her VP Choice.

That’s funny, outside of responding to all the attacks on Palin by folks here on the free republic, I haven’t seen any threads attacking conservatives. But it may depend on who you call conservative. If you’re a Mitt fan, I can tell you now he’s not a conservative. Now if you’re a DeMint fan, I will tell you he’s one of the few I’m hoping wins the nomination. Even thou he has said he is not going to run.

I'm not a Barbour fan for one reason. He supported eminent domain as the Gov of Mississippi. That's incapatable with me, regardless of how many jobs he said he brought to Mississippi. You can't take someones farm, give it to an auto company, to build a plant on, and pretend like you did the RIGHT THING. It may have created jobs, but its still UNAMERICAN...

Sorry, NO MORE Presidents or VPs for me without executive experience. I will take governors, business CEOs, engineering managers, ranking military officers, even non-profit CEOs, but no more legislators-in-chief. Obama has done me on that.

It sounds good, Demint-Bachmann, but you’re just voting for two legislators-in-chief. In these times, we need someone at the helm who can lead, someone with EXECUTIVE experience heading the EXECUTIVE branch.

You can't even call Obama a legislator. During his time in the Illinois State Senate and the U.S. Senate, he authored, I believe, only one bill. He usually voted "Present" in the State Senate and he was MIA for most of his U.S. Senate term.

Truth is, Obama's list of actual accomplishments probably begins and ends with being elected President.

Why do you go from thread to thread attacking Palin?

Barbour (agrees with Daniels) has called for a social issues surrender and disses Palin.

Dude, up to now I have deliberately refrained from attacking you, even on your most obnoxious threads and through your recent self-imposed all-to-short exile, for old times sake and out of respect for Hunter.

However, you just burned the last beam of your last bridge with me, so from now on, the gloves are off and you can expect no quarter.

Now piss off, pissant!

Gee bashing someone that supports the most popular Republican primary candidate by saying that it is exactly like a little cult guy obsessing over a non candidate that was never anything but a national unknown.

You will have to do better than that to take on a major frontrunner and the conservative favorite.

Sorry. But this “only Sarah” BS deserves to be refudiated. We don’t even know which other conservatives are going to get into the race, much less if Palin herself is going to run. Yet here we have a group on FR that is trying like hell to tell everyone that she is the next Reagan, AND that no one else can beat Obama.

That’s fine. It’s your opinion. But how do you expect others who don’t particularly see her as either a) all that conservative, or b) all that ready for CIC, or c) all that capable of winning - to not hammer back?

Some may feel some disappointment that he would make such a supportive statement about Sarah Palin. It may show that he has been sincere when he said that by making endorsements he was trying to improve the Congress. He will wind up being a key player for Team Sarah.

Actually I like DeMint also but upchuck runs his ping list. The the problem you have is that you WORSHIP Sarah Palin. I like Sarah Palin. I could vote for her. I like Jim DeMint. I could vote for him. I like Haley Barbour. I could vote for him.

YOU and those like you WORSHIP Sarah Palin and I can guarantee that if she does not win the GOP nomination you are going to stick out your bottom lip, pick up your bat and ball and go home.

Coming on to a thread and accusing people of WORSHIP for their candidate over and over again is not a good way to start dialogue. That's an anti-Palin talking point shared by the most vile posters on FR. Strong support for someone is NOT WORSHIP, just in case you want to look it up.

You might want to apologize to those you are accusing of that if you expect to get a conversation going. Unless that's not your main purpose.......

That petulant, childish lashing out in such an immature manner only makes you appear to be a trivial person.

Palin is the favorite of Republicans with 76% approval. Trying to label political support for the leading primary candidate as anything other than simple adult, conservative politics is is just incredibly childish and ineffective, but it is revealing of the person that thinks it is significant and effective on a conservative forum.
