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.

Palin said, “I’m of the mind of ABO — Anybody But Obama, at this time.”

Sarah, not only at this time but EVERY time! So, in that context I heartily agree with you. But Sarah, please run! Please

I think that’s the first thing I can’t agree with Sarah Palin on. Well, maybe the second. She did endorse McCain.

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 she’s 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.

Palin will support Romney if he is the GOP candidate as will Perry, Bachmann and Pawlenty. That's a fact!

It's attune to the Prime Directive: Beat Obama. And, as such, quite appropriate to show support for one's allies in this mission.

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.

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.

Nothing to get upset over. Sarah will deal with Milt in her own good time. She didn't say she supports Romney, she said she would support him over Obama. ABO. I don't support Milt at all, too big a RINO, but when all of the dust settles, if my choices are between Milt or Obama, I would NEVER vote for Obama.

I'll do everything that I can to make sure I'm not put into that position and so will Palin.

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 she’s 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!

Questions About Romney’s 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. Romney’s 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. Romney’s 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.”

This would fall into the “damning with faint praise” category.

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.

From Politico story:Sarah Palin's presidential campaign prospects remain a mystery during Iowa trip

And when the Daily Caller wrote a story suggesting that she’d 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 you’re 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.”
