Mitt Romney is a decent guy, a gentleman with character and class- particularly when compared to what we’re stuck with in the White House now. He said nothing offensive whatsoever against Palin, there was no "swipe" when he made a mild joke that implied she's attractive (which of course she is)- and IMO it is ridiculous to scrape for some sort of wrongdoing here. This only benefits Team Obama and the Democratic Party... so it's easy to see that stoking the flames of this non-event is just more manipulation from the Obama sycophants of the MSM. They then will tell you that the GOP is at war with itself, the leadership has disregarded Palin... and that Romney is an underhanded, fratricidal operator.
The current abhorrent situation in Washington calls for GOP party unity… rather than foolishly playing into the Machiavellian Emanuel and Obama’s hands by engaging in unecessary and self-destructive primary battles two years early. There is no benefit whatsoever to the Republican Party in that- especially as the country is being dragged into the abyss by the Democrats.
Team Obama and the DNC have been employing despicable Alinsky-esque divide-and-conquer/character assassination techniques for months now… manufacturing synthetic “fights” like Rush vs. Steele, plus ceaseless ridicule of Jindal, Palin, even shameful distortion of the legacy of Ronald Reagan. Clearly, the strategy is to eliminate GOP rallying points and philosophical framework for 2010/12 and create the image of a party in disarray.
And what’s been done to Palin and her family by the MSM is beyond-the-pale. But the left is so self-righteous -ala USSR- that they feel any means justify the ends… even editing interviews disingenuously, digging through her closet, or and attacking her children in the national media.
If Governor Palin’s so silly and irrelevant, why the obsession?
The fact is that Palin has been highly successful in life while ignoring the left-wing feminist model… this helps to explain the extra dose of venom in the attacks. She turns their nonsensical liberal world-view on it’s head... and with a smile. Trouble for them is, if more people were like Palin, the Dems would have no reason for existing- and her success humiliates them.
The DNC is terrified of Palin coming-back at them in 2012 with a dynamic and complementary VP like Bobby Jindal… or visa versa. And they have plenty of reason to fear her-
Palin is the most popular governor in the country; her 60+% approval rating exceeds that of the MSM-pumped Obama… are all those people up there idiots?
Alaska was a pretty corrupt system until she stepped in. Her reforms took on entrenched politicians (inc. Republicans), a mafioso-style union boss, and Big Oil.
Wouldn’t it have been nice if Obama had been principled and brave enough to confront the corrupt Chicago Democratic Machine?
Shady political operators like Tony Rezko?
Instead of doing business with every last one of them?
Go get em, Sarah and Mitt- we have a lot more in common that what divides us in the GOP- and I think we are all in agreement that either of these individuals would be a big improvement over the Bolshevik charlatan we've got now. And don’t mind the press, nobody will be listening to them anymore after the pending Obamamania implosion... which is coming sooner than you think.
