Sarah Palin: We’ve got Paul Ryan’s back and will call out the media for their lies and distortions
The Right Scoop ^ | 8/12/2012 | The Right Scoop via Fox News

Posted on 08/12/2012 12:26:39 PM PDT by sheikdetailfeather

Sarah Palin says that Paul Ryan is sure to be vetted and scrutinized, but that she among others has his back and will call out the media for their lies and distortions. She goes on to say that when she was thrust in that spotlight that she didn’t have a lot of support from people in the McCain campaign to defender her and explain what her record was all about because they were protecting their own future interests. But she says that we won’t let that happen to Paul Ryan:

Not sure she is correct. Romney hardly speaks out against the lies they toss at him.

She should start By Exposing the BIGGEST lie of all,The Republicans Especially Paul Ryans Plan does away With Medicare. That is a LIE because Obamacare has already done that,in 2014 its cut by 700 billion dollars and everyone goes on medicaid,try finding a new doctor when you are on Mdicaid,with 30 percent of doctors quitting.
This is a Big lie to counter,I was at Church this Morning and at the Coffee hour afterwards a senior said to me I have to Vote for Obama because Ryans Plan takes away My Medicare after 20 Minutes of Explaining that Obama has already done that ,it takes efffect in 2014 and that Ryans Plan actually PRESERVES medicare for those 55 and Older and allows those Under 55 in 10 years to stay on the Current Medicare Plan or choose a Different plan. he thanked Me for the Information.
All this says to me is Ryan and Romney Better Pound that Message 24/7 to seniors. I am Glad both Ryan and Romney Hit that right away Yesterday,they better continue,especially in Florida

Jim,

Every day I go through life and have to make a decision to choose between unappealing options. If our decision turns out to be wrong, when we stand before God he will understand our moral dilemma in this moment of time and forgive us for our decision.

Ryan understands the budget, and that is what scares the rest of the politicians — both sides of the aisle.

He can point out the flaws and hidden treasures, and they don’t like that.

Agreed.

It should be a Palin/Ryan ticket.But the idjits at RNC are so challenged they do not recognize that Ritt Momsey does not have the hutzpah to defeat the nationalist socialist movement of Barrak Hussein Obama, who they think is a business as usual politician. They are WRONG.

I personally have no problem with Romney's religion, even though I believe it to be false. There is no religious test for public office in America.

I have a problem with Romney because he's a Liberal and a Liar.

These are the times when we are tested. These are the times when either we stick to our principles and beliefs, and fight for them, or we give up fold in fear.

I cannot bring myself to vote for either of the two main parties' candidates -- both are unacceptable.

My vote was bought for me with the blood of generations of patriots who died so that I can cast that vote for someone I believe in, who stands for the principles I hold dear.

I will not allow fear of one evil to cause me to cast my vote for a different evil. Doing so dishonors the sacrifice of Americans going back to the Revolution. My ancestors fought those battles for my sake. How dare I dishonor them?!?!

> Still praying for a miracle.

Yes, indeed. I am right with you, Sir. I am praying now, and will be voting down-ballot in November for people who can help America return to her Founding Principles, and recover her Greatness.

Ditto.

No one wants Obama, and few want Obama-lite either.

Some of us believe the Establishment betrayed us and that they need to see for themselves there are still a core out here who remain both severe constitutionalists and severely Christian, both anathema to the two parties presently.

Our Romney voting critics fail to grasp that the senate and House would attempt to freeze Obama in place should he be re-elected and we take the senate, but they will line up to offer carte blanche to Ruse Romney and the House will be cowards to shut the purse to his own greand schemes, he who ushered in socialism/Marxism/Obamacare himself, only on a smaller stage.

REBELLION IS HARD, and it is scary. Somebody, somewhere has to resist, lest they come for me.

Pul-leeze!!!!

What difference would it make what Sarah Palin’s parents’ beliefs were a half-century ago??

This is NOT an election about religion. If it were, we’d be discussing the radical anti-Christianity of Rev. Wright, the muslim upbringing of The One, and the moonbat beliefs of Romney. EVERYBODY LOSES. There simply is no winner in that discussion, and Ryan or Palin can’t fix that.

We’re electing a chief executive.

Apparently you are unaware Obama has been waving his executive order pen around like a third-world dictator everytime the GOP House shoots down one of his agenda items. A House and Senate controlled by the GOP won't mean bubkus to this pig.

At this point it seems like perhaps you are just being stubborn and letting pride get in the way of good decision making.

With Ryan on the ticket there is no rational way to argue that Romney/Ryan isn't a better choice than Obama/Biden. And that's your choice - Romney/Ryan or Obama/Biden. Pick one. Pretty sure even folks like Sarah Palin would flat out tell you that refusing to vote for the only ticket that has any chance of removing Obama from office is a serious mistake. She's got Ryan's back and you can bet she is going to be supporting Romney/Ryan despite it's glaring flaws at the top of the ticket.

General election ballots are not an affirmative endorsement of a candidate, they are a choice between the only candidates that can win - and yes, most of the time that is going to be the lesser of two evils in a two party system.

Wouldn’t you know that again it takes Gingrich to articulate, on time, as in immediately, a coherent defense, in terms that rips the opposition with his mastery of both the issue, the premise and the details. Contrary to announcing that he will have someone’s back, Gingrich gets out there, on day one, and covers their back.

This is a virtue of Gingrich which I am sure Sarah admired also.

It is a historic and unprecedented ticket. A left wing liberal-progressive and a conservative on the same ticket... truly bipartisan./sarc

Problem is that the conservative is at the bottom of the ticket as usual. He will have to follow the lib around like a puppy, say "Yes, sir". Conservatives can be really excited as he goes around attending ribbon cutting ceremonies and inaugurations. He will also be the "bridge" to conservatives when the lib implements liberal programs, telling conservatives that everything will be ok, and to look the other way.

Pride? Maybe. I proudly stand on principle. Stubbornness? You’re damned right! I absolutely refuse to vote for a man who for more than three decades of his adult life advocated that abortion should be safe and legal in America. And who stated flat out that Roe v Wade should be sustained and supported as the law of the land (even though it was not legislated). And who boasted he’d be better for gay rights than Ted Kennedy. And proved it. And who advocated and signed into law the socialist/fascist healthcare system that made ObamaCare possible. Hell no I won’t vote for Romney. He obviously doesn’t believe in or support our God-given unalienable rights.

I disagree with you. We didn’t have her back. Myself included. When she was attacked by Katie Couric, what did “we” do? When she was attacked by liberal “stars” in Hollywood, what did “we” do?

When her CHILDREN were attacked, what did “we” do?

I’m ashamed that I didn’t do more. I will NEVER let that happen again. I remember seeing the liberals trash the children of Rick Santorum and then Sarah Palin. They attacked CHILDREN. Comedians on OUR airwaves mocked children.

No, Mr. Robinson, “WE” didn’t have her back. I know you’ve met her, I saw her during a campaign stop in Western PA then. She is a little dynamo. I realize this is off topic, but I really do hope that everyone knows why liberals hate her so much. 1. She’s beautiful. 2. She appreciates the fact that she’s a woman and doesn’t try to look like a man. 3. She LOVES her husband and family and the love is returned.

Now, if you’re going to ask me to defend the Andrea Saul’s of the RNC, forget it. I’m not going to do it. I believe “WE” are the party, not them. It’s up to us.

Precisely correct.

And that is why, for me, the addition of Ryan to the ticket does not offset Romney enough to vote for Romney.

Were the positions reversed, it would be more interesting -- then I'd have to consider whether I thought Ryan had sufficient executive decision-making experience to do well in a very difficult executive position. We have had four years of seeing what a President with no executive experience does in that position, we don't need any more amateur hour.

A ticket reversal would require a major shakeup in the GOPe, and I don't expect it to occur. On the other hand, it would make me interested enough to watch some of the convention. But as it is, I don't need an emetic that badly.

” I voted for Perot 20 years ago to shake up the repubs and have regretted what has happened ever since. “

You nailed Lesson number ONE.

Lesson number TWO has been learned in this primary the hard way. The fix was in for the Establishment candidate by the silence of the GOPE for the balcanized majority, split between 5, 6 conservative candidates whom they deigned to ignore entirely. What suckers we were.

If in the future we fail like that again, we will never win, but instead must have a pre-determined drop dead, cut off date where we refuse to be balcanized and agree together, like it or not, with one conservative candidate, all together, or not at all, because not-at-all is guaranteed if we fail in this task, as we have sorely learned.

Thank the Lord, not all of us will be sitting out this election, or Obama and his hoard of radical Marxist/Socialist/Communist/Muslims, would simply waltz right back into power, unopposed.

Thankfully, the majority of conservatives, (including conservative Christians) understand how critical it is for this nation, Israel, and the rest of the free world to get Obama out of the White House.

These people that would sit back and let the GREATER of the two evils triumph, remind me of this famous and very wise quote:

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” (Edmund Burke)

“Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.” Proverbs 16:18

Sanctimony that creates the exact things that one decries makes one culpable of the same.

Jim, I do not doubt your desire to see “The Evil One” defeated, nor do I blame you for the deep seated dislike you carry for Mittens. But the damage that 4 more years of the Evil One would perpetrate is undeniable, especially with his penchant for bypassing Congress with executive orders and if he gets to nominate even one more Supreme Court justice, anything we stand for and hold dear will be gone.

If the positions were reversed, the gop types will have no problem whatsoever with four more years of Barry.They choose socialism over real conservatism when given a choice. Patriotism will be out the window.

But as it is, I don't need an emetic that badly.

Same here. It will be sad to see conservatives who have stood their ground, like Governor Scott Walker, to have to cheer lead for the nominee.

Not to disagree with you entirely, or Jim, but..... imho, we are NOT “the party”, as you say, when we are all losers, all the time, every time. It is WE the conservative Republicans who have been every bit as hard as Sarah Palin; WE who have been just as used and abused as Sarah Palin ever was! We have been duped by our own lack of abilities to play hard ball, the same as Sarah Palin was duped by Katie Couric! We can’t hit back and make a punch land because we are so rhetorically wrapped in the flag we have no actual infantry strength to make a landing in the first place.

Everyone whines with sentiment for Sarah Palin, Sarah Palin, Sarah Palin, who can’t get covered by anyone but right wing blogs, just like WE can’t get an audience even with Republican Establishment insiders!

Palin is awesome at sentiment, and lovely, and a dynamo on the stump. All of which thoroughly irritated the Marxists and certainly fed to our own great satisfaction. But, among ourselves so are we pretty great and patriotic at sounding off, understanding full well frome whence we came, able to raise the name of our fore fathers over issue after issue, rather than EXPERTLY discussing the danged issue!

It is PAST TIME to campaign on sentiment of a once great nation and have nothing else but sentiment in our arsenal. This alone, I believe, is what brought Sarah no DC future.

We need political marksman now, who don’t lose, with not only brains, but willing to show up and prove their cunning and expertise, and experience, authority in their field, and CONFIDENCE in getting on the general election field for keeps. And a willingness to RUN.

I appreciate Palin much more for what she is and for the decision she has made to be an awesome cheerleader for the troops, a mascot for patriotism if you will. A potential strategic LEADER of national and international influence on global fiscal collapse and a Leik Walenske,(however you spell his name)? Good grief, NO!

I certainly doubt Ryan and Romney, but theirs is a field at least where they are thought to be rather expert and everyone knows it. Ryan will not easily be driven off by the likes of Katie Couric, nor by any hint of unpreparedness for the ticket.

We should drop the past sentimental stars of the moment and get a grip on the future in a hurry with some real metal in our arsenal.

I agree in principle, but it is impractical when obama uses executive orders to skirt congress and then we have the holder justice department.

As for praying for a miracle, we all should, but it may not take the form we thought it would.

Example: There is a flood and you and your family who prayed for a miracle are rescued from certain death by an atheist,satanist, agnostic, muslim, jew, catholic, baptist, maybe even an abortionist etc with a boat.

You are still rescued and maybe the miracle is not only are you still alive, maybe God will change their heart and mind if needed.

I despise romney, but he and Ryan may be Americas lifeboat.

Well, I always had her back. But the Republican Party establishment/leadership sure didn’t. When things got just the least bit hot, they sided with their liberal buds in the media, and piled on with the wolfpack. Call me naive, but witnessing that happen repeatedly these past few years absolutely destroyed my lifelong faith, allegiance and trust in the GOP. Absolutely DESTROYED it.
