Skip to comments.Palin denies withholding support for Romney
Posted on 06/25/2012 1:00:46 PM PDT by mnehring
In an appearance on the Fox News Channels Hannity on Tuesday, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told Sean Hannity that the reason why she didnt endorse presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney during a Las Vegas speech this weekend was because she couldnt.
The Daily Caller had pointed out on Tuesday that former Palin did not even mention Romney in her speech. But, Palin told Hannity, that doesnt mean that the 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee isnt supporting the former Massachusetts governor.
There was a reason I did not mention Gov. Romney in my speech at the Americans for Prosperity Foundation event and RightOnline over the weekend, and thats because I would have violated the ground rules for Americans for Prosperity Foundation. That you couldnt violate their I dont know if it is a 501(c)3 whatever the classification is of their organization.
No one mentioned Gov. Romney in their speeches nor endorsed anybody because that wasnt what the conference was about. My role in the conference as a matter of fact in the conference was to point out the hypocrisy, the double standards and weakness of the old media and how the new citizen journalist media can rise up and take the place of what the old media used to represent and that is telling the truth and the facts to voters.
Palin then went on to make it clear she was supporting Romney.
I have said from day one and Sean, I think you said the exact same thingL It has been anybody but Obama. We have a presumptive nominee in the GOP process after a good competitive and very spirited competition to find that presumptive nominee, Palin said. And, yes, if that vote were to be taken today obviously I would vote for for Gov. Romney over President Barack Obama in a heartbeat. I wouldnt blink because I go back to what I said at the beginning anybody but Obama.

We might win with anybody but Romney as well.

Note to Gov. Palin and GOPe:
NO MORE RINOs.
NO MORE ROMNEYCARE.
NO MORE ROMNEY JUDGES.
NO MORE ROMNEY DEATH PANELS.
NO MORE ROMNEY FEES AND TAXES.
TRANSCRIPT of part of the Video Interview between Sean Hannity and Sarah Palin April 12 ,2012 :
Hannity: (8:40min:seconds to 8:46 ) Alright, Lets talk about the campaign and your convinced Romneys it now? Do you think its pretty much over?
Palin(8:47 9:09 ) Well let me put it this way, I dont want Newt to drop out, I dont want Ron Paul to drop out, because I want debate still on the ideas that both of the other candidates have been able to espouse and explain to the country, I want Ron Pauls message about cutting the budget, about the economic woeful times that we are in and what we can do about it I want those to continue to be discussed and Newt has some good ideas too.
Hannity: (9:09-9:22 ) Are you convinced, because you spoke about this at an earlier time during the primary, are you convinced as to time has gone on that governor Romney will govern as a solid strong conservative or do you still have doubts?
Palin: (9:23-9:37 ) I am convinced that governor Romney, if he is our nominee and if he is elected president, he will know to surround himself with those that will inherently know to go right, to err on the side of smaller, smarter government and that gives me a lot of confidence.
Is Sarah a RINO?
How about Dick Cheney?
“It’s very important that we gather together and get behind our likely nominee Mitt Romney,” Cheney said Saturday in Cheyenne. “Mitt Romney can do a whale of a job for us, as a candidate and as a president.”
Now that she is rich she should run for Governor of Alaska. She owes it to them to actually work for a full erm.
Well, she’s obviously just a dirty, rotten, stinking third partyist who needs to get over it and figure out that Romney is the nominee and only one of two people is going to win in November, so it might as well be the one with the “R” after his name.
NO TO SOCIALISM
NO TO 4 MORE YEARS OF DNC EXTREMISTS CARRYING THE BALL
NO TO 4 MORE YEARS OF OBAMA
RINOs are by BEHAVIOR.
LIKE Romney creating DEATH Panels.
LIKE ROmney forcing RomneyCARE.
LIKE Romney forcing Gay Marriage without Legislature
but by Improper Executive Authority.
Like Romney nominating only liberal judges.
Sorry, but there is a rebellion against the PHONEY Milt.
Yeah, like take a whale of a dive...
A nice try, and for a good cause - but two things about cappers: you can’t reason with ‘em, and ya sure as hell can’t out-cap ‘em
IMHO, Sarah Palin is, still, the best choice for ‘12 POTUS, despite everything that the left threw at Sarah and despite Sarah choosing not to run for ‘12 POTUS. This is a missed political opportunity for Sarah Palin, and people can speculate how she would of done, win or lose, forever.
With some people here, if you don’t agree with them 100% of the time, you are a RINO.
But remember, “If everyone’s a RINO, then no one is a RINO.”
I refuse to participate!
Sarah Palin & I will be voting Straight Republican Party!
It's a shame some on FR will not be participating & celebrating our landslide vitory.
I am no longer interested in what she has to say.
"Anybody but Obama" is not an endorsement, everybody should see that. If it were, it would mean that she would vote for me... Or Nanci... Or Jerry Brown... Or Hillary...
Words do have meaning, would she vote for me or the others, I guess not, but if she is a team player and has exposure in the media she should endorse Romney as the "ONLYbody but Obama."
A lukewarm, backhanded statement at best.
Translation: "Your father did business with Mitt Romney, he respected Mitt Romney... but he never *trusted* Mitt Romney!"
BEHOLD A RINO:
