How can she go from endorsing a conservative like Rick Perry to supporting a McCain like RINO like Romney (the father of Obamacare)???
Of course she could. If he was the candidate. AB0. But that doesn’t mean he WILL be the nominee. Kind of a useless question.
Well, she supported someone like McCain...
Do I really believe this?
Sarah, not only at this time but EVERY time! So, in that context I heartily agree with you. But Sarah, please run! Please
Wrong answer Sarah.
I think that’s the first thing I can’t agree with Sarah Palin on. Well, maybe the second. She did endorse McCain.
Rick Perry is a Conservative???
Imagine if Bachmann gave that answer. LOL
Oh man... you just dropped something in the punch bowl with this post.
I’d vote for Pee-Wee Herman before that Commie in office now.
He may be a smidgen more than McCain or Romney. That is if you are choosing between open border fellas.
There was an update at the end of this story. i’m sure ejdrapes just forgot to post it. /sarc.
Here’s the update:
UPDATE: In a subsequent phone call to The Daily Caller on Friday, Palin said her remarks to TheDC should not be interpreted as support for Romney in the race. Palin reiterated that shes for ABO Anybody But Obama.
A representative of SarahPAC also told TheDC that Palin has complained to Fox, whose site Fox Nation aggregated this article, for what she calls a misleading headline for this story.
Well, I hope that came out wrong. Or is a bad quote.
The credibility of the source is questionable. Following the link to "Weasel Zippers" (which in itself doesn't convey gravitas) shows the following (and I quote it verbatim including lettercase):

Not just a wrong decision. A dumb decision to boot.
The only answer. Besides ABO, if she said no, and she ran and won, that would come back to haunt her: “You wouldn’t support Romney, so why should his supporters back you?”. You just don’t say you won’t support the nominee no matter who it is. I can say it, but I’m not contemplating a run.
She’s answering honestly. I pray to Dear God in Heaven that Romney does not get the nomination, but... Anyone but Obama is pretty much where I will HAVE to come down.
I hate it. It goes against almost everything I believe, but at this stage of the game, I simply cannot take my vote and sit it out.
The country, hell the entire WORLD, cannot afford four more years of Obama. Whether it’s incompetence or malign intent or a combination of the two, the man is simply deadly poison.
Rick Perry is not a conservative. Nobody who thinks charging the same tuition for an illegal as an American is “punishment” is a conservative. Nobody who thinks guardasil is a good idea, especially when paid off by Merck, is a conservative.
I’m holding my nose to be able to say this, I would vote for Hillary Clintonista before Obamination.
Something tells me this is going to be another “hold your nose and vote then rush home to take a shower” election.
I hope we can gain in the House and take over the Senate and keep the RINOS in line.
If I was her I would have winked and said “I don’t think he’s going to be the nominee”.
I'll do everything that I can to make sure I'm not put into that position and so will Palin.
Typical drapes crap. The major take away from this is no third party.
WHO would you vote for...Obama or Mitts....what the hell is she supposed to say???????
4 years of a RINO might as well be 4 more years of Obama.
Romney is not going to lift a finger to undo ObamaCare, I doubt many of the others will either.
Folks, for the second time: THIS STORY HAD AN UPDATE AT THE END OF IT:
“UPDATE: In a subsequent phone call to The Daily Caller on Friday, Palin said her remarks to TheDC should not be interpreted as support for Romney in the race. Palin reiterated that shes for ABO Anybody But Obama.
A representative of SarahPAC also told TheDC that Palin has complained to Fox, whose site Fox Nation aggregated this article, for what she calls a misleading headline for this story.”
Good grief, are some of you folks already falling into the media’s trap? I would expect more from FREEPERS!
We’d see a slew of “See I knew she was a stalking horse for Mitt” posts. LOL
Questions About Romneys Sons and Military Service
By MICHAEL LUO
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa It is a question that Mitt Romney has gotten before on the campaign trail. Sometimes it is asked innocently; sometimes with a clear edge.
A woman at an Ask Mitt Anything forum earlier today in Iowa raised the question again, asking whether any of Mr. Romneys five sons are serving in the military, adding pointedly, If none of them are, how do they plan to support this war on terrorism by enlisting in our U.S. military?
Although his campaign said his remarks were taken out of context, Mr. Romneys response is drawing criticism, because he said, in part, one of the ways my sons are showing support for our nation is helping to get me elected.
Yeah, I'd vote for Romney over Obama but then I'd vote for a turd in a suit over Obama if I could tell them apart.
Anybody but Obama is a bad answer?
And when the Daily Caller wrote a story suggesting that shed said she favored Romney, the Palin entourage was visibly angry. Todd Palin pulled the story up on his BlackBerry, and handed it to his wife those dang reporters! she exclaimed. A few moments later, a Palin aide put the Caller reporter, Alex Pappas, on the phone with the former governor.
So what youre saying is that I said that I support Mitt Romney? she asked Pappas. You need to be clear, otherwise people really lose faith in the state of journalists today.
Her contention: She said she supports ABO, or anybody but Obama.
I could support deep fried butter on a stick over Obama.
Er, where did I post anywhere that Palin ENDORSED Romney or this comment means she would ENDORSE Romney? I didn’t. The original article I posted included the ABO - Anybody But Obama line.
Nah, Paulie is scared of Hell, FLIP MYTH SLICK WILLARD RINO ROMNEY makes the Prince of lies blush.
How can any true conservative vote for Mitt Romney when he supports comprehensive immigration reform,(code phrase for amnesty).
Re; Obama photo- Have you ever seen an expression like that on an American president before? Hitler, maybe but not an American president. Rush said he looked demonic.
Re: Error 404 - Not Found
It opens and the article is indeed there. (I also had a problem opening the posted link above). Here’s the URL I was able to enter and the article is there.
Yep, there are so many candidates that it will seal the deal for Romney.
I knew we were going to get us another RINO. Oh goodie!
OK I’ll admit a little pot stirring here. Of course we know Palin KADs have never done that on FR before. ;-)
