How do you solve a problem like Sarah? Romney misses out in stand-off with loose cannon diva
The London Daily Mail ^ | July 16, 2012 | Daniel Bates

Posted on 07/16/2012 1:40:59 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

She is the Tea Party diva who lit up the 2008 Presidential campaign.

But four years later Mitt Romney is facing one of the most vexing questions of his campaign: what to do with Sarah Palin?

In an increasingly uncomfortable stand-off, he has not invited her to next month’s Republican national convention whilst she has failed to give him her full backing.

Palin has also not appeared with the Romney on the campaign trail and prefers to use her Facebook page to bash Barack Obama.

The result is that the Republican presidential candidate is left without the endorsement of a woman who can energise his base in a way he can only dream of.

The former Massachusetts governor - who is so emotionally cold friends reportedly call him ‘Tin Man’ - is facing nagging questions about how he can appeal to the Tea Party which still feels he is a left wing flip flopper.

Palin would fill that role but would constantly be in danger of going rogue - and not sticking to the carefully crafted scripts....

How in the H did these CINO (McCain) and CINO du jour (Mittens) get nominated? It's unexplainable.

Somehow, for whatever reason, God seems to have ordained that Barak Obama, the Socialist lover of government tyranny and hater of our free Constitutional Republic would be elected TWICE.

Jesus is coming soon.

Not if enough people vote for the moderate, old-school Ripon Republican versus the National Socialist anti-AmeriKKKan destroyer. There’s no Reagan or Palin to vote for. That’s the way things turned out. I’m not going to waste my vote on a third party candidate who has about as much chance as I have of being president!

In Case you missed it.....Sarah still has a huge following of political voters that take her endorsements (see how she turns congressional candidates into winners overnight) thats feel like she represents them when she is attacked by the RINOs and Left and that also come out actually to hear her......... Scarbrough doesn’t have nor had that ability nationwide but sits there on MSNBC

All that's great except for one thing. Somehow this moderate, old-school Ripon Republican had enough wits to win the Republican nomination but is so far witless and being outwitted by a sitting-duck Obama who's probably the easiest target in the history of Presidential races. Apparently there are enough people out there who don't realize how bad Obama is and so far Romney's not doing a lot to change their minds because unbelievably he's letting sitting-duck Obama set the tone and agenda of the debate. I know the MSM is Obama’s reelection committee, but Romney has been and will be on the air and so far, he’s busy defending himself when the ONLY thing he should be doing is relentlessly attacking Obama like Patton's third army blitzing through Gemany.

This election should be NOTHING except OBAMA constantly defending himself and his miserable record.

WHAT? Don't blame God for what those drawn to evil have done. People makes their own choice by what is in them - God doesn't control them.

Is JESUS coming soon - could be as evil is now on both sides of the aisle, we always had a group who did the right thing. Now they have dropped like flies bowing to evil. Voters dropped their values they claimed they had - faithless! Without faith, no one can please God. They are more concerned w/pleasing the GOP and godless Romney!

If Obama wins it is the GOPs fault, not ours. This was the GOPs election to lose and they vomit up the one guy who will not win. Mitt is counting on people tossing out their values and voting for him anyway - just like you are doing.

People like you are why we got Mittens rather than a conservative in the first place.

Are you always this clueless?

Obama does not I exist and his smile started 4 years ago when mitt started his dirty work against SARAH and lying about Newt this campaign . So obama smile is from his blood brother's doing! Obama wouldn't have a chance with either Sarah or Newt as his opponent and AMERICA would! All of obama's junk would be out!

Now YOU keep that smile on obama's face, he's ready for a one punch knockout! You should be ashamed of yourself, but too clueless to know it

Divide what? TWO LIBERALS on the ticket! You need the well wishes when you wake up from your self inducing coma and face reality!

He thinks holding obama over American voters heads, so he can do whatever he damn well pleases and everyone must submit to him.

I hope the delegates are taking note and his boney butt covered in special underwear is kicked to the curb where he belongs! Maybe obama will make him his VP.

I have to say that I would like to be able to vote w/ pasiion for someone I love & respect just once in my life before I die. And you know what? I sadly don’t see that happening.

That happened long ago when I voted for Clinton & I was ecstatic ( I did not vote for him the following presidential election. I was so disgusted that it was the only time in my life I have refused to vote. My parents drilled into us that voting is your duty.) I know that my choice would not have thrilled you, I’m just explaining how basically presidential elections anymore are voting for the person who makes you throw up the least. That’s not how I want to vote.

Sarah's turn will come. Sarah must not dilute the vote against obozo, and thereby lose this election...she must realize that we have to deal with the cards that have been dealt. Don't be foolhardy, Sarah. We do not have to love Romney...we need to vote him in to office.

Romney DOES NOT hate America, Romney IS NOT a socialist/communist/marxist/revolutionary/sharia law loving thug.

OBOMA IS ALL OF THE ABOVE.

That's the difference that counts the most. We sit on Romney's behind and pound away at him to make sure he hears the word of We The People.

For those of you who will not vote for Romney, a few words to you. If you don't think we can overcome the tyranny of punks like oboma and holder, you are a wimp and frankly you sound more French than American. If you want to waive the white flag of surrender, We The People will have to win this war without you.

Mitt Romney is facing one of the most vexing questions of his campaign: what to do with Sarah Palin?

You mean that half-term governor/reality star / baby mamma mamma who only does TV interviews with Greta or other softball hosts on Fox News?

He should do what the rest of the country has done: ignored her.

What did the POS Romney do to MA in his completed governorship? So finishing a term means ZIP!!

Initiated same sex marriage 1st in the country
initiated SOCIALISTIC HEALTHCARE 1st in the country
appointed liberal judges
PRO baby killing
Raised taxes/fees
Employment MA 47th in the country under his pathetic admin

So you see the socialistic/POS, cult leader hates what America stands for as he brought his filth where the pilgrims landed first and plans the same for America.

Sarah lives in his head for FOUR years so far - so, chump, you are VERY wrong - he is NOT ignoring her. Even you don’t - you clicked on a thread with SARAH in the title. The WORLD knows SARAH and when she speaks EVERYONE listens. Not to you nina but SARAH!! Eat your heart out!!

You are exactly right on all counts. I am a born again Christian, but 0dumb0 & the demoRATs cause me to swear & rant like a drunken sailor at times. The powers that be are ordained of God, and for the life of me, I cannot believe that God was willing to save Sodom & Gomorrah for only 10 righteous souls, and yet we have millions of born again Christians & conservative patriots in the USA and instead we have a lackluster, dim-witted, socialist lite Mitt Romney, who is constantly on the defensive against the RAT Bastard commie muslim pig 0dumb0, and is getting shellacked on a daily basis. Unbelieveable.

There are 50 things or more that Mitt should be attacking 0dumb0 on a daily basis, including his fraudulent Conn. SS #, fraudulent Selective Service deferment, hidden school records, Jeremiah Wright, Fast & Furious cover-up, etc., etc. In 2008 & even in 2007, 0dumb0 was on the offensive non-stop and in the news daily. The only time I see Mitt in the news is when he is making another defensive statement. Unbelieveable.

Only the imminent return of Jesus will stop this evil.

It's the stupid party against the evil party, and unfortunately the evil party wins most of the time. Typical communists...they never give up and they always go back on offense, whatever it takes to advance their satanic ideology & marxist agenda.

You know, our district chairman sent out a little missive the other day about when one side is evil, the other is good and one must choose between good and evil. The problem is, there is NO side that is good here and choosing the lesser of two evils is still evil. Romney? No thanks! I will work from the bottom up for Senators and Reps that really want to uphold the Constitution and our GOD GIVEN rights.

I'm thinking he likes Condoleeza Rice. She's single and eligible as a sister-wife to Ann.

She is BLACK!

A much needed offset to the inevitable outing of his BELIEF until he was 32 years old!











"You see some classes of the human family that are black, uncouth, uncomely, disagreeable and low in their habits, wild, and seemingly deprived of nearly all the blessings of the intelligence that is generally bestowed upon mankind.

The first man that committed the odious crime of killing one of his brethren will be cursed the longest of any one of the children of Adam. Cain slew his brother. Cain might have been killed, and that would have put a termination to that line of human beings.

This was not to be, and the Lord put a mark upon him, which is the flat nose and black skin. Trace mankind down to after the flood, and then another curse is pronounced upon the same race--that they should be the 'servant of servants', and they will be, until that curse is removed."

Brigham Young-President and second 'Prophet' of the Mormon Church, 1844-1877- Extract from Journal of Discourses.



Here are two examples from their 'other testament', the Book of Mormon.

2 Nephi 5: 21 'And he had caused the cursing to come upon them, yea, even a sore cursing, because of their iniquity. For behold, they had hardened their hearts against him, that they had become like unto a flint; wherefore, as they were white, and exceedingly fair and delightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people, the Lord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them.'

Alma 3: 6 'And the skins of the Lamanites were dark, according to the mark which was set upon their fathers, which was a curse upon them because of their transgression and their rebellion against their brethren, who consisted of Nephi, Jacob and Joseph, and Sam, who were just and holy men.'



August 27, 1954 in an address at Brigham Young University (BYU), Mormon Elder, Mark E Peterson, in speaking to a convention of teachers of religion at the college level, said:

"The discussion on civil rights, especially over the last 20 years, has drawn some very sharp lines. It has blinded the thinking of some of our own people, I believe. They have allowed their political affiliations to color their thinking to some extent.I think I have read enough to give you an idea of what the Negro is after."

"He is not just seeking the opportunity of sitting down in a cafe where white people eat. He isn't just trying to ride on the same streetcar or the same Pullman car with white people. It isn't that he just desires to go to the same theater as the white people. From this, and other interviews I have read, it appears that the Negro seeks absorption with the white race. He will not be satisfied until he achieves it by intermarriage."

"That is his objective and we must face it. We must not allow our feelings to carry us away, nor must we feel so sorry for Negroes that we will open our arms and embrace them with everything we have. Remember the little statement that we used to say about sin, 'First we pity, then endure, then embrace'...."

(Rosa Parks would have probably told Petersen under which wheel of the bus he should go sit.)



1967, (then) Mormon President Ezra Taft Benson said,

"The Communist program for revolution in America has been in progress for many years and is far advanced. First of all, we must not place the blame upon Negroes. They are merely the unfortunate group that has been selected by professional Communist agitators to be used as the primary source of cannon fodder."



We are told that on June 8, 1978, it was 'revealed' to the then president, Spencer Kimball, that people of color could now gain entry into the priesthood.

According to the church, Kimball spent many long hours petitioning God, begging him to give worthy black people the priesthood. God finally relented.



Sometime before the 'revelation' came to chief 'Prophet' Spencer Kimball in June 1978, General Authority, Bruce R McConkie had said:

"The Blacks are denied the Priesthood; under no circumstances can they hold this delegation of authority from the Almighty.

The Negroes are not equal with other races where the receipt of certain blessings are concerned, particularly the priesthood and the temple blessings that flow there from, but this inequality is not of man's origin, it is the Lord's doings."

(Mormon Doctrine, pp. 526-527).



When Mormon 'Apostle' Mark E Petersen spoke on 'Race Problems- As they affect the Church' at the BYU campus in 1954, the following was also said:

"...if the negro accepts the gospel with real, sincere faith, and is really converted, to give him the blessings of baptism and the gift of the Holy Ghost, he can and will enter the celestial kingdom. He will go there as a servant, but he will get celestial glory."



When Mormon 'Prophet' and second President of the Church, Brigham Young, spoke in 1863 the following was also said:

"Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God is death on the spot. This will always be so."

(Journal of Discourses, Vo. 10, p. 110)





Yeah; Native Americans are althroughout the Book of MORMON; too.

 

“I saw a striking contrast in the progress of the Indian people today ... they are fast becoming a white and delightsome people.... For years they have been growing delightsome, and they are now becoming white and delightsome, as they were promised.... The children in the home placement program in Utah are often lighter than their brothers and sisters in the hogans on the reservation.

At one meeting a father and mother and their sixteen-year-old daughter were present, the little member girl-sixteen-sitting between the dark father and mother, and it was evident she was several shades lighter than her parents—on the same reservation, in the same hogan, subject to the same sun and wind and weather.... These young members of the Church are changing to whiteness and to delightsomeness.

One white elder jokingly said that he and his companion were donating blood regularly to the hospital in the hope that the process might be accelerated.

 

(Improvement Era, December 1960, pp.922-23). (p. 209)
