Sarah Palin: Santorum should stay in the race



Sarah Palin says there is no need for Santorum to drop out at this point since Perry dropped out this week:

I so wish she would go away! South Carolina has no morals and values.. Newt is like a rock band at a concert, the band will say the city you’re in and the crowd goes nuts! Newt attacks the media and the people eat it up. Seriously think about it, the question was not out of bounds. The news of the day was Newt’s x wife said he wanted a open marriage. So King asks Newt for his side. Newt attacks him, then he says we’ve all been hurt or suffered personal pain. So he lumps his cheating in with everyone’s personal pain lol. No Newt we all haven’t cheated on our spouse.. Also notice Newt’s ploy, whenever asked a tough question, Attack the media or he’ll act like he’s the victim. Sounds like BHO, whenever asked a tough question play the race card.. I’m so disgusted with Newt.. Anyone… Read more »

Seriously? The people of SC have no morals? That’s a rotten blanket statement to make.

Perhaps Newt’s irritation (and most of us conservatives as well) stems from the fact that the so called ‘tough’ questions are meaningless to most of us. I’ve yet to hear any really tough questions come from moderators – all I hear is a bunch of sh– stirring.

I do hope that Santorum stays in. I could live with him, Paul, or Romney. I detest Newt. I would vote for him over Obama, but he is a progressive phony. It amazes me that some don’t consider him “establishment.” He is as establishment as it gets. He has spent his entire career in DC. Before that he was a college professor. The last thing we need is another college professor – all words and big ideas, without any leadership skills. The thought of him and Callista in the white house makes my stomach turn – just a picture of wholesome goodness that we can be proud of /sarc. He would never beat Obama anyway, so I don’t worry about that much. Nancy Pelosi and the democrats know why he resigned in disgrace … and it isn’t in the published report – he cut a deal … and it is… Read more »

Rick is the only person who at least acts like he has not skeletons in his closet….rp too I suppose….but I completely trust Santorum right now. Wouldn’t be surprised if something crushing came out against newt or romney later on if either one got the nomination. Plus Rick is for the family more than any other candidate out there. The family is the core to our society and the liberal agenda to erode that has already gone to far and will only continue to erode our society without someone with strong values as his.

I’m with Todd on this one. Just goes to show Palin has her own agenda. Not saying that’s horrible or anything but Newt’s the only one who is actually putting words to the conservative agenda, words (and I feel sincere) plans to implement it. Santorum is not a bad person but he is not in any way shape or form what we need for president at this time. If we’d already reversed the liberal agenda in this country and were victorious over the Islamic plans of domination then Santorum would make a satisfactory president. I’ve heard some compare Newt to Churchill and I agree. We are at war on two fronts, the liberal socialist at home and the Islamic radicals abroad. We need a war time president and Newt is the only one who will take the offensive on both fronts. He’s not going to wait for Sharia law to… Read more »

Churchill was believed to be bipolar as a great many brilliant people throughout history were. Churchill had a habit of drinking to much (self medicating) and have unlimited energy generating many great ideas at times, some bad (striking miners should be machine gunned was a Churchill idea). Churchill as well as Newt spent time in the political wilderness. Newt displays some of the very same traits; extremely smart, prone to swings in attitude…when he’s rollin, he’s really rollin and prone to go a bit too far. I imagine that when he’s in his “good” Newt stage, he’s swung back to a normal state. BP’s are prone to self destructive behavior at times (sound familiar). BUT, given the traits of these types of individuals, a person like Newt may be what this country needs. Just remember, when the war ended, the British felt that Churchill would not be a good peace… Read more »

This has been the whole deflection of truth, mainly with Trump’s highly visible demand for O’s birth certificate. Instead of finding out whether he was born here or not (which people are labeled ‘birthers’), we should have been looking at his father’s citizenship (being a dual citizen of Britain/Kenya), all along.

I’m mixed here. I think Sarah is wonderful but man, she really needs to step up to the plate and endorse someone. Just flirting with an endorsement for Gingrich, combined with Newt’s brilliant debate performances and the backlash from his cruddy ex-wife trying to torpedo him, propelled him to a decisive victory. I still support Santorum as my number one. That being said, many people don’t like him personally and his history sends some bad messages. Furthermore, he still doesn’t have any money to really mount an effective campaign. He needs to come out and hit the right conservative points with passion and fire and clear the doubts so many people have over him. Until he does that, he’s going to be mediocre in this contest at best. Rick has the social things in the bag… he needs to talk more about his economic plans, how he’ll cut the deficit,… Read more »

Rick Santorum got a billionaire donor a week ago…an evangelical Christian. Look for Rick to continue to grow and refine his message and solidify his base. His hard-working, no-nonsense campaign paid off in Iowa. He cares, listens, and learns what they want, need, feel. He stands for the eternal truths. I’ve heard him reiterate it over and over. That is his strength. He is perceived as judgmental and sanctimonious when he expresses the truth without backing it up with science, statistics and is strongest when he does so. ANY conservative standing on the truth and evidence is going to make the PC left crowd vociferous, vehement, sometimes vile and vindictive… That has been Newt’s strength – he tells the truth come hell or high water. He has challenged every single PC myth there is…from the Palestinian victimhood to gay ‘marriage’, to the judiciary as final arbitors of truth to global… Read more »

How does your political garden grow? I think we need the final four Republican primary candidates to keep this contest going until or just before the Republican Convention next August. Momentum is all important in a presidential primary campaign. It needs tending to just as if it were a garden. This political garden needs to be watered, fertilized and pruned for its emotional blossoms to open at just the right moment. As we have seen, there’s been plenty of political fertilizer applied to the momentum garden. We should all expect more to be applied by gardeners Romney, Santorum, Gingrich, Paul, Obama, their surrogate helpers and the professional political landscapers who will help them mold the political momentum garden. To make a garden flourish a gardener should never over water, over fertilize or pruned beyond its ability to recover. All of the above should be applied but should be executed at… Read more »

This is probably relevant to the topic: Romney has announced he will publish his tax returns Tuesday.
This could be a game-changer. I have to give him props for admitting “We might have made a mistake for holding out as long as we did”. When its revealed how much he has earned, class warfare may become class-less warfare. I hope the other candidates can rise above that.
However, the cake sent to Gingrich party HQ may come back to bite Mitt. http://tinyurl.com/6pxw38a

This is just one more reason Romney isn’t electable and not because he didn’t release his tax returns but because he can’t think tactically. The minute he thought this was going to be a problem he should have been ahead of it. Whatever reason he had for not doing it, he’s now had to put it out on other peoples terms. He hum hawed through two debates looking the fool. He could have had this over before the S. Carolina vote even happened. People could have pawed through it complained and whined and it would have been over. That and Palins remarks about how it’s hardening the candidates is so much BS and I’ve never called anything Palin said BS before. The only reason Romney even has anything to say with conviction is because he’s coping what others say, mostly Gingrich. From now on I’m keeping track of how many… Read more »

Sarah is a mother first. And I applaud her for realizing that running for POTUS with the current media would be very hard on her family. She is young and still has plenty of time to stay in the national scene and help conservative candidates get elected. I also believe she will be in the federal government in some capacity when we elect a R in 2012. This will shore up her experience and get her ready to run for POTUS if she choses later. Thank you Sarah Palin keep speaking out.

I am with Palin. Santorum won Iowa and finished ahead of Paul in South Carolina. He has as much right to stay in as anyone in the field. The person who should drop out is Ron Paul, but I support him staying because he’s taking the moderates and independents that would probably vote for Romney. So until Romney drops out and I think Romney should drop out if he loses Florida (he won’t but he should), I say everyone should stay.

I believe you’re wrong on that. I live in NC and most all of us believe that the REAL SOUTH begins at the NC/SC border. The original NC dialect has mostly disappeared with the exception of rural areas as CLT and RDU have both grown immensly as a result of northerners coming south (I’m one of them). SC is SEC country and culturally resembles GA, Northern FL and Alabama than it does NC and VA. The south will not vote for a yankee Republican with a Georgian still in the race. I look for Newt to win the south: GA, AL, MS, AR, LA PLUS OK and TX.

Wrong. It helped Mitt NOT skate through. Mitt only won one state.

After she suggested to the voters in S.C. vote Newt, he got the money and the momentum to win by a landslide. Palin is a King Maker.

Santorum is a consistent fiscal conservative? He supported most of GW Bush’s big spending, he raised the debt ceiling 5X, voted for RX drug bill and Head Start which doubled the Dept. of Ed. Plus he is a 1st class Pork Baron.
Newt’s Ex stated she could destroy his politcal career in 1 interview and 2 days after her interview aired, Newt won South Carolina in a landslide, beating ‘inevitable’ Romney by 12 points and more than double Santorum’s tally.

P.S. Newt balanced the budget 4 years straight (even Reagan didn’t do that), and he opposed G.H. Bush’s infamous ‘read my lips’ tax hike, which earned him the Bush families animosity ever since. After Newt left Congress, Santorum remained in the senate and rubber stamped pretty much most of GW Bush’s huge spending. Which BH Obama points to as his defence for his current insane spending.

By the way, the only way Palin get’s nominated is if she takes VP again. She certainly has first dibs after South carolina. It’s still very possible.
I watched the ‘Journal Editorial Report’, i.e. Wall Street Journal RINOs, they were panicky and deflated over Romney and a few were day dreaming for a RINO white knight like Mitch Daniels to jump in. (Mitch Daniels would put a Librarian convention to sleep) Shows how desperate they are though, the boat has sailed, the primaries are underway. No magic RINO can parachute in to replace Mittens. They want a pinch hitter, doesn’t bode well for Romney.

I don’t think Palin would go for VP. She’s danced that song before and she doesn’t move backwards. No retreat, only reload. I watch for Feb.1st, the day after Florida, to see if she 1) jumps in (because Santorum dropped), or 2) endorses Newt (because Romney won). Watch for it.

If she jumped in at that point it would split the conservative vote, helping Romney.

Yes, temporarily. But it would drain Newt of his support and Santorum would have dropped. So, it would be a head to head with Romney from that point on (mano-a-mooso, as it were). I think that is what she has been waiting for.

She didn’t want to step on Bachmann’s, Perry’s or Santorum’s toes and as long as they were in, she would not enter. It is my belief that with them gone and Newt minimalized (Romney may well win the next 4 primaries), she would jump in to force a brokered convention. Otherwise, she will probably endorse after Florida (probably Newt).

My take on it, if Mr Values voter/ Evengelical sweater vest can’t win South Carolina, what state can he win?? I think everyone sees with their own eyes, this primary has crystalized between conservatives for Gingrich and moderates and establishment for Romney. Santorum will do poorly in Florida and drop out after that. No need for Sarah palin to throw her weight around(figurtively, she’s very slim of course ;-)). Incidentally, I believe Palin consulted with Gov Perry in her endorsement for Newt and Perry’s timing to exit the race. The Conservative A-Team is getting it’s act together. 9 more days for Florida. *If* Rubio was thinking to support Romney I bet he’s reconsidering. Like Nikki Haley, don’t forget who brought you to the dance.

No need to rush Santorum to get out of the race… Who knows what damage the nuclear negative ad campaign from Romney will do to Newt’s campaign.

Besides Gingrich won in South Carolina with Santorum actually getting more than he was polling there… If Gingrich is going to win Florida he’s going to need to cut in Romney’s support and convince the undecided voters for him regardless if Santorum is in it or not…

As Lady Palin said last week: Iron sharpens iron. The extended debates polish the candidates and are even better for America as a whole. Rick Santorum must carry on as the moral compass of the pack even as Ron Paul keeps one eye fixed on the nation’s insolvency clock. This consolidation business is only brought up by people looking to buy influence. They figure it’s easier to buy stock in the right horse with the field winnowed. Well, maybe it isn’t pay to play anymore. Or maybe, if you don’t like to wait and wonder, you should pick a candidate based on his/her principles rather than on your personal ROI prospects. Voting booths are not ATM machines.

I wonder how ole Barbara Bush feels tonight. Yes, the same former first lady, who basically told Gov. Palin to go back to Alaska–and disappear, in a classless, condescending interview on Fox News–about a year and a half ago.
Sarah kinda took her up on her offer–except for the disappear part. This amazing, patriotic woman makes a single suggestion–from her living room, to South Carolina voters, and Newt wins in a landslide. Sorry Babs, but on your best day, you never had this much influence.
Keep it up, you elite snobs on both sides of the aisle…the common sense, hard working Americans stopped being fooled–long ago.

Right. And Newt Gingrich represents the common man, is that it? Because we all have $500K lines of credit at Tiffany’s and earn millions of dollars per year. Gingrich is as elitist and insider as they come. I’m not against him winning, because I think he’ll put up a great fight, but when he talks about elitists in DC, you just have to give your head a shake. Newt is as full of sh*t as they come.

Your reasons for such a statement?

Palin would not deserve the nomination for the simple reason that she did not put the sweat and tears into it like the other candidates that actually threw their hat into the ring. There is no way Palin would be nominated

I have to agree, Brian, as much as I would like to her get the nom., I don’t see it happening.
