I know I’m becoming a Lone Ranger here. I’m taking on the Sacred Cow (R). However, Sarah Palin is now on record calling for 2014 primary challenges against Republican incumbents who won’t resist Barack Obama’s grand fundamental transformation plan for our nation. Bravo! I’m all for that fight. Vote the RINOs out of office and replace them with true conservatives. I support Ted Cruz and Mike Lee in their battle to resist what Barack Obama and the Democrats are doing.
But, I have a real problem with spending all this media spotlight time and ink on soliciting Sarah Palin’s advice. Yesterday Breitbart.com featured some commentary about an October 17 segment from Fox News’ The Kelly File, during which the former Alaska Governor was asked for her thougts about primary challenges against Senators Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Thad Cochran (R-MS.
Palin: “I’ve been saying for years that robust competitive primaries make for a better political system”… “It makes people work harder and express more articulately what their record is and what their intentions for our country is.”…”Heck, yeah, they’ve got to be primaried. Otherwise we’re going down.”
Oh, please. Spare me. This from the woman who stepped into Arizona in 2010 and threw her support to the King of the RINOS, incumbent Senator John McCain. If you recall, McCain was scurrying for his political life to fend off a primary challenge from a true conservative, J.D. Hayworth. Sarah Palin, it can be credibly argued, was a vital part of swinging that election to McCain. It was an immensely important moment in American history, ‘though it will probably fade into obscurity.
And why was it a moment of such import? After being sworn in again, John McCain went on, as he always has, to quickly throw his support to left wing causes, including Obamacare, comprehensive immigration reform (read that: amnesty for illegal aliens), leaving the border with Mexico wide open, raising the debt ceiling, un-Constitutional American military intervention in jihadist-backed civil wars in Libya and Syria, and virtually everything else Barack Obama seeks to accomplish.
John McCain is deeply and crucially involved in the Barack Obama “fundamental transformation” of this nation.. He is every bit that which Sarah Palin now decries as the conservative movement’s big problem – incumbent RINOs who are enabling the Socialization of America.
Yet, when Arizonans stood a real chance of removing this unmitigated political disaster from power (as Mark Levin has described him), Sarah Palin supported John McCain.
I know I’m beating the same dead horse, but am I the only one who sees the danger in paying so much attention to her, without questioning her incredible about-face? Does no one else recall how the Democrats used RomneyCare against the former MA Gov when he attacked Obamacare? Does no one else remember that Obama’s team actually used Romney’s blueprint in designing the Affordable Care Act, which a huge majority of Americans doesn’t want?
Does no one else see the parallels between Romney’s 2012 anti-Obamacare campaign rhetoric and Palin’s Orwellian hypocrisy in her statements about getting rid of the RINOs? I’m telling you – when the American left calls Sarah Palin a hypocrite, they have a valid point of contention. She supported the re-election of the RINOs’ RINO and now she wants the rest of the RINOs defeated.
The Republican mess is getting messier.
