On this whole supposed Romney vs. Palin thing.
Yeah, how many conservatives here trust unnamed sources that speak to Time magazine? Anybody? Because if you do not know by now that Time magazine works to help the left, then you’re not a serious person.
As for me, I will not lie. I do not think that Sarah Palin is the best candidate that the Republicans can nominate for President of the United States. I don’t think that should be a controversial statement in the conservative community. That is why this blog is titled Conservative for Mitt and not Conservative for Sarah. Nevertheless, this Romney vs. Palin rivalry is overblown and really getting out of hand. This is especially the case, when I still have not heard any statement from either candidate that suggests that the two are anything but on the same side. Continuing this feud helps nobody but Democrats.
Although I don’t think Palin would make the best President, her value as a Republican leader cannot be denied. She can engineer tea party support for a candidate in the same way that Romney can bring money and party connections. Palin is an excellent activist and asset to conservatives in 2010. Romney is an excellent leader endorsing conservatives nationwide. Together the two are an impressive team. It is one that frightens the left. A good way for them to combat it is to divide and conquer. Throw a monkey wrench into the Republican unity that is currently looking to beat the snot out of them this November and laugh while one or two top Republican leaders go down.
Democrats expect us to overreact, and escalate the feud, and unfortunately that is what I am seeing. Palin supporters are a relentless bunch, and really get overexcited when their candidate is criticized. Perhaps it is justified; a lot of nasty unfounded things have been said about her over the past two years. Governor Romney has stated his piece in a twitter response arguing against the “numbskull” comments of this “anonymous staffer” and in support of Palin. This should be the end of it. Now is not the time to fight the yet hypothetical battles of 2012. This is the time to unify and see through the drubbing that we will inflict upon the left in 2010.
If 2012 sees both Romney and Palin deciding to run for the Presidency, then this battle will be fought then and over the principled arguments of the candidates themselves. Do not let the left dictate our candidates, and our battles. Do not let the left deflect us from our goal of driving them out of Congress this November. Finally, do not trust anonymous sources about Republican candidates in Time magazine. I know its hard for some dedicated supporters to believe that Palin and Romney are on the same side, but they are. Keep your focus, conservatives.
