Sarah Palin: It’s naively idealistic for me to think anybody but Newt or Romney will win the nomination

When Sarah Palin was asked by Judge Napolitano who is best suited to rage against the machine, to go up against the establishment, Ron Paul or Newt Gingrich, she said that Newt Gingrich has a record proving that he has raged against the machine which is why those within the machine are so adamantly opposed to his winning the nomination, that they would even try and rewrite history to stop him from winning.



But it was her second answer to the question of who is best suited to take on Obama that I found most interesting, as she made clear she believes that the GOP presidential race is a two-man race at this point. When choosing whom to cast her vote for, she says that she doesn’t want to be naively idealistic to think that anybody but Newt or Romney will win the nomination right now and that it would be impractical for her, as a voter who is trying to evaluate the best user of her vote, to vote for Ron Paul or Rick Santorum because she just doesn’t believe they can win at this point.

Anyone who watches the Judges program knows he has chosen Ron Paul and only Ron Paul. He came at Palin from every direction to get her to endorse Mr. Paul, but to no avail.

I wish Palin would just admit that she is backing Newt. She goes on TV and pretends she is undecided and than her advice to other undecided voters is to listen to people like Art Laffer, Mike Reagan, Herman Cain. They have all endorsed Newt. It is insulting that she thinks she is fooling anybody.

We will not change Washington with this election alone, so what choices do we have?..decent smart people are not running for office due to media choosing our candidates.. I wonder if George Washington would be running these days with his own party elites throwing bullets at him like they do with Newt..
I will vote Newt instead of Mitt just so that media understands to get out of our way and think twice when attempting to choose our candidates….too sad so many people are still buying into the attack adds they are now playing all over Florida;
Sarah’s message is very clear; she’s picked fighting media first, then go to the next step..
.. GO NEWT 2012!!

I’m honestly not trolling. I think it’s become clear over the last year that she is not that interested in replacing Obama, her entire livelihood at this point is being a political foil and bomb thrower. Her relevancy drops to zero if the GOP wins the WH. If she honestly cared she would have gotten into the race herself, or made it clear she wasn’t going to run much earlier. The way she continued to tease a run into the fall kept money and support on the side lines, and ultimately hurt the overall crop of contenders. Imagine if she would have made it clear she wasn’t gong to run and put her support behind a Newt, Santorum, Paul, Ryan, Rubio, etc sometime last spring? In the end though I think Christine O’Donnell and Sharon Angel proved to all of us that her judgement as a “Kingmaker” is not to… Read more »

So Palin’s saying we should vote for practicality over principle? That’s the problem with America. People vote based on what they hear on the news instead of selecting a candidate based off of what they have researched.

I’m voting for Ron Paul because of his principles and consistency as a Congressman. He speaks what he believes is true even if it’s not exactly what the people want to hear. He’s proved his worth to be president and I don’t feel the others have.

All I can say is, do the research on your candidate of choice before voting! Vote on principle even if people tell you it’s unrealistic to do so!

I believe that Ron Paul will not be the candidate. Although some of his principles are very well worth adopting. His policies on military readiness, war, appeasement, and Israel are impediments for me. Unfortunately, my favorite candidate is not in the race. I am compelled to deal with those that are. Rick Santorum is at this point the most conservative on many issues, and a compassionate conservative on others. I am impressed with his stands on sharia law, Israel, international and national security (although, it is impossible to round up every illegal and ship them back), and life issues. Mitt is not my choice by any means. Newt is the strongest to go up against BHO, and he is strong on Israel, anti sharia law, strong military and security. Good on economy. He understands and opposed the mental midgets in DC. He can do the job. Mitt is weak, a… Read more »

I’m not so interested in ‘raging against’ the machine (corruption, overspending, manipulating and destroying, the economy, liberalism, etc) but in REFORMING and REDUCING the machine and RESTORING American Constitutional government and a sound, strong, stable dollar and economy.

Sarah Palin did both; raging and reforming.

Sarah Palin has always been a tough-as-nails executive who understood her role as a servant for the people during her time as Mayor of Wasilla and as Governor; she took on the Republican establishment, big oil, corruption, ethics reform, and tax reform.

She has cut spending, forward-funded education, and paved the way for job growth in her hometown.
As oil and gas commissioner, Sarah Palin called out the unethical practices of members of her own party.

As Governor, she sought to end the back room deals and improper relationships between oil companies and politicians.
Sarah Palin has fought to reduce spending and to enforce fiscal discipline as governor of Alaska.

She has drastically reduced the growth of the state budget, which has helped to produce a record budget surplus.

Sarah Palin has shown herself willing to take on corruption, even when it occurs among her fellow Republicans.

The foreign policy that she has adopted is that of the neocon establishment, and is unlawful as far as the consititution is concerned, and more importantly, is warned against in scripture repeatedly. On the merits of a ‘just war’ perspective, a nation can only defend itself against unprovoked agression, and then it would only allow for the punishment to be inflicted on the perpetrators, not a country. The military cannot change the heart of unbelief that exists in the Muslim world, no more than the military would effectively stop the US from continuing in gross sexual immorality like adultery.

Dr. Paul’s economic principles are sound, but his desire to legalize drugs, sex-trafficking, porn, etc. is not only dangerous; it is unconscionable when Islamic drug cartels are invading our country.

We do not need porn/drug shops freely doing business in the US. We don’t need doped up people driving autos or working in factories.

Dr. Paul is an academic, a theorist and a purist. He talks and thinks, but has never been an implementer of his ideas. We (and he) don’t know if some of them would actually work and what the consequences of his ideas would be.

Prevarication. Mr Paul is opposed to these vices, and has stated so repeatedly. He is opposed to the central Gov making laws against them. It’s a non sequitor to conclude that one is ‘for’ something, on account of their being against a method of enforcement. He is opposed to gov. education, is her therefore supportive of ignorance? The laws against vice would likely be stronger in many instances, if they were determined at the local level. No private business would be forced to allow self abusing people to work as employees. All the presumptions you mention are based on the establishment misrepresentations of Mr Paul. He isn’t a ‘showman’ with his speech, but he is determined to obey the law of the land.

Once again she’s right. Now if only Santorum could take a hint and stop sabotaging the race for Romney’s benefit. Santorum’s stubbornness to stay in the race is about to give an unearned victory by plurality, not majority, to Romney in FL. What good is a “true conservative” like Santorum who effectively blocks conservatives from any chance to win the nomination. Furthermore, the failure of conservative icons like Rush, Hannity, etc. to educate their audience about these strategic factors (in an attempt of so-called neutrality), has effectively provided cover to most of Romney’s unethical behavior. If these guys don’t see the need to risk anything to fight a liberal within like Romney, how can we expect the average conservative to fight it. It’s pretty sad.

As much as I admire Rick Santorum, I tend to agree with you and Palin. At this point Rick is taking votes away from Newt. On the flip side I think Paul should stay in since his votes would probably go to Mitt?

Why is Rick staying in? I think he doesn’t have any other plans. Staying in the campaign allows use of campaign funds… Maybe he is simply staying in to increase his leverage for a position in the new admin. I don’t think Pennsylvania has any intentions of re-electing him, SC shows no interest, NH already has a resident “politician laureate” and there are no vacancies in Iowa.

On the other hand, FOX can always use a conservative spokes-head. Maybe they could match Santorum with Beckel.

I and others have been saying Santorum isn’t going to get the nomination because of the Iowa win. He had to live in Iowa to convince voters he’s the one. These polls show he has a lot of work ahead of him. He’s polling worse than Perry did in SC. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2012/president/february_gop_caucuses_primaries.html Another lesson learned here is how little right wing radio influences the voting public, even the GOP! It’s been discussed before that Santorum is Romney’s stalking horse. Maybe he’s hoping to get a sweet gig in a Romney administration. Don’t count on it Rick. I see Romney surrounding himself with a lot of “yes men.” http://rickperryreport.com/article/2012-01-15/santorum-revealed-romneys-stalking-horse-brenham Last but not least, it is interesting to see Romney break through his 25% barrier while conservative candidates drop out and Santorum’s poll numbers drop.

You’re nuts. Too many conservatives think Santorum is the most conservative candidate, even though his record doesn’t really prove it. He’s also the one candidate who claims to take the “high road”, but consistently takes the time to insult his rivals. I was doing some reading and came across a quote where Santorum calls Newt “crass”, irresponsible, and pandering, over his Moon Colony ideas. He’s done this on just about every other topic. His sliming is what has lead to people like you tearing apart rivals like Cain, Perry, and now Newt, because they believe Santorum is the “true conservative” because he told them so, over and over again.

IMO, Sarah is not endorsing Newt, because she will jump in the race if Romney wins Florida. She wants Newt to beat Romney because Newt has already told her that she would be his VP pick. If she jumped in after Florida then her endorsement of Newt would look foolish, but by not endorsing Newt she saves face. And quite frankly if Romney won Florida Newt would not have a chance to beat Romney, but Sarah, that’s a different story. Sarah would be the only one capable of pulling an upset after Flordia. That is the only scenario I see working out with her non-endorsement.

Just chalk me up to naively idealistic. I’m supporting Santorum. Love Sarah, and heck, she may be right. However, I think she is giving Newt quite the pass. I am aware of the game she is playing, and I guess that’s ok.

No, it’s not the coffee….I just saw her on Fox and thought she looked rather haggard.

I like Rick Santorum too, and I am sticking with him unless/until the choice is taken from me.

I have thought for awhile that Sarah does not look well. I hope she is OK.

I have another “Take” she likes NEWT- Her husband Todd already Came out & Endorsed him- she said he went “Rougue” but if you listen to her she wants to Endorse but is afraid Tea Party Groups who are largely undecided – will Reject her Bid for Newt- So she is simply Commenting for now – and Also for those of you who like research Clear Channel who Hannity & Rush have there Shows on are owned by BAIN Capital – Romneys little Company -So if you feel they are tenderly turning a Deaf Ear – and the Hair flipping Ann Coutler who hated the idea of Romney winning last cycle – is now oh its Romney – What Kool Aid are the Mormons Serving ? He’s the Same guy he was other than he has more experience Campaigning………….. Also you are right Sir – Ron Paul who has had… Read more »

“naively idealistic” would have been a great way to describe Newt for most of 2011 when he was polling below 5%. Or when Newt had lost the first two primaries placing no higher than fourth. Paul has a far better organization and national setup than Newt. Newt isn’t even on the ballot in a few states. He is handicapped more than Paul at this point. Those are just the facts. All four of these guys belong here at this point and they have all spurned a strong following for different reasons. It is idiotic to suggest people should not vote for someone who is polling low. How do you talk about raging against the machine but follow some numbers on your TV screen rather than your heart? You vote for who YOU want to be president not for who IA, NH, SC, or FL thinks should be president. That’s how… Read more »

What do you call your support for Paul? You are following a man who sat on his lazy butt for decades living off of our taxes and doing nothing but getting pork and thinking he was sly at how he did it. He is the consummate Washington insider.

When did I say I’m a Paul supporter? And even if I was, what does your mudslinging have to do with my original post? Or are you too frustrated to come up with a legitimate response?

Not mudslinging it is straight up truth. I am not frustrated ether I am saddened at the gullibility of our youth who sees this man as more than what he is.

SO Newt is part of the machine becasue he was “in Washington”. Interesting, have I missed something? Where the hell has Ron Paul been all these years? Working at Sears? He’s been in Washinton as well. While Ron Paul may be the toughest critic of govt, he is incapable of effectivly articulating that opposition effectivly. This guys thought process is like a plate of speghetti noodles. It’s almost impossible to unravel it all. You need someone who can intelligently and articulately, not only develop and EXPLAIN the conservtive common sense proncipals so most people can digest them, but you have to also be sharp enough to unravel the liberal propaganda and expose it’s flaws on a consistent basis. Paul can’t do that. Can you imagine him and Obama on a stage debatting before the American people. This stumbling old fool stammering and stuttering his way through an incoherent series of… Read more »

You say newt was JUST “IN WASHINGTON”, hardly he was a VITAL PART RON REAGAN’S TEAM and did many good things for Conservatism! But on the OTHER HAND we have USELESS RON PAUL who accomplished almost ZERO in all his years in Washington EXCEPT FEED AT THE PUBLIC TROUGH! Ron Paul has one foot in the looney bin and the other’s soon to follow.

Newt was backgroun player in 1980-1988 when Reagan was President. He wasnt some vital part of that. You must not have been alive then. Newt was more a player in 1994 when he was Speaker and Clinton was in office.

Newt engineered the take over of the house and senate 1988 – 1994 when he was minority whip . How do you become minority whip if your a background player ?

Gingrich was, by and large, a supporter of Reagan in the 1980s. He engineered and executed the 1994 congressional victory and oversaw fulfillment of the Contract with America. He also balanced the budget, defeated HillaryCare, gave us the first GOP majority in 40 years, and reformed welfareNotably, whenever Gingrich was actually in office, he mostly advanced, espoused and defended conservative positions. Romney’s association with conservatism is relatively recent. In understandable deference to Massachusetts’ political realities, Romney’s posture was centrist and his gubernatorial term was technocratic — though unforgettably, by implementing a form of socialized medicine. Doubts about Romney’s sincerity are twofold: first, gainsaying over abortion or reverence of Reaganism; second, a career contrast to Gingrich insofar as has professed conservatism outside of office. Romney tends to disassociate from statements or positions rather than offer a definition of himself, which only adds to suspicion. Romney’s legislative accomplishments are a wishlist of… Read more »

Thomas Sowell is a Educated Brillant Man – and he is behind Newt because he believes in the Same things. Sound Goverment – Balance the Budget. With Romney getting the Donations from the Big Investment Bankers One has to wonder if the SOROS statement is Correct- Geez I hate this Stupid Errounous AD saying Newt was fined for blah blah – yes he was but later all the Charges [Even the 300k] were all dropped. Nancy doesn’t know anything that the public doesn’t – She is just MAD as Hell that he is Running and getting all this attention. Considering his Resume he is the one Person that could shake things up – & actually get the Budget balanced – Don’t you think Obama loves the Idea of pounding the Fact that Obama Care is Romney Care ? And why isn’t the Newt Campaign mentioning that Romney didn’t even run… Read more »
