Sarah Palin & Rush Limbaugh Both Agree: Democrats Want to Run Against Romney

Sarah Palin told Judge Jeanine this weekend that Obama and the mainstream media want Romney to win the GOP primary so that they can then portray Romney as someone who is out of touch with regular Americans.

Human Events reported:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said the mainstream media and President Barack Obama “want to face Mitt Romney in the general election.” She made those comments on “Justice With Judge ” on FOX News on Saturday during the same time the Republican presidential candidates were debating in New Hampshire on ABC.

Palin said the mainstream media would take a hands-off approach to Romney “in order to bolster Romney’s chances” to “finally face Obama.”

Rush Limbaugh agreed with Sarah Palin today on his show.
Via Free Republic:

RUSH: There is a story on the Drudge Report today from Sarah Palin in which Sarah Palin says that the White House wants Mitt Romney to be the Republican nominee. Now, not only did I tell you that the Broncos were gonna beat the Steelers, for months I have been telling you that the Democrats want Romney — and you all know it. You’ve been listening here and you’ve heard people call me and tell me I don’t know what I’m talking about, that I’m full of it, that they’re scared of Romney. “Romney is the only guy who can win.” And I have said, “No,” and I’ve stood tough, and I’ve said, “They can’t wait for him. What’s Occupy Wall Street all about but running against Romney? He’s the Wall Street guy on our roster — and then Romneycare,” and I’ve laid it all out. So here comes Palin, she says it, and makes news — and Donna Brazile has said it. This is post-debate coverage on ABC Saturday night. George Stephanopoulos, Democrat Party hack disguised as the debate moderator on ABC, had this discussion with Jon Karl and Donna Brazile.

BRAZILE: Mitt Romney won tonight because no one touched him — and for Democrats, you know what? It was good news for us.

KARL: Why is that?

BRAZILE: Because we believe that the weakest candidate is the candidate that the Republicans are not attackin’, and that’s Mitt Romney.

KARL: Oh, come on.

STEPHANOPOULOS: No, you don’t believe that, Donna.

RUSH: That’s Stephanopoulos. What Stephanopoulos is saying is, “Shut up, Donna! What the hell are you doing, Donna? Did you not take your meds?” That, “Come on, Donna, what are you doing? You know you don’t believe that” means, “Donna, shut up.” You know, she’s feeling her oats there. So Palin has come out say it it and Donna Brazile saying it. “Oh, yeah, the one guy not being attacked…” She practically gleeful here, and I’ll tell you why she’s gleeful. She’s gleeful because what she sees is Romney getting the nomination, so she thinks it’s okay to blow the lid off this cover now. “Mitt Romney won tonight, because no one touched him — and for Democrats that’s good news for us.” Stephanopoulos says, “Whoa, whoa, whoa! Why is that?” “Well, because we believe the weakest candidate is the candidate the Republicans are not attacking, and that’s Romney,” and Stephanopoulos says, “Oh, you don’t believe that!” I guarantee she had a talking to. They had a talking to with her with her after this, because that’s a major faux pas. The line that’s supposed to come out of the Democrat Party is they’re scared of Romney. The line is, “Oh, no, they don’t want to face Romney. Romney is the toughest guy.” That’s the line, and they know, folks — the Democrats know that our experts are stupid enough to believe that the Democrats will be honest and tell us who they really don’t want to face. I’ll tell you who they don’t want to face when we come back.


RUSH: The Democrats are afraid of any candidate they have sought to destroy. You can start with Sarah Palin, you can move on to Santorum. Any — any conservative who showed any interest — the Democrats set out to destroy. That’s who they’re genuinely afraid of. They are not hammering Mitt Romney at all, and Donna Brazile let the cat out of the bag. Don’t doubt me.

    Right as usual, Romney will give Imam Obama another 4 years because they are cut out of the same statist bolt of cloth. The two of them are virtually indentical except for their skin color.

    Well, you have to give Sarah Palin credit for one thing; she seems to be the Queen of Stating the Obvious. Hell, Sarah, tell us something we didn’t already know.

    If stating the obvious is all it takes to be a political pundit on Fox, I am sure there are a number of people on this blog who would work for a lot less than Palin’s getting. Greta Van Sustern’s husband, who negotiated the Palin/Fox contract is known to be as ruthless as they come.

  • Redwine

    Of course, she’s right.

  • donh

    She is so right. Obama wants the Bain corporate raider wall street capitalist to run against becaus jealous hate of the Republican rich wins EVERY time. Establishment hacks know Romney will lose and they don’t care. Its a win win. They pocket money from Romney selling us out . They will be rewarded by Obama for serving his re-election and they don’t have to fear losing their public funded revenue streams if a real budget cutter gets elected. So sad how the Tea Party leaders prefer to be accepted by the in crowd than fight the good fight. People like Nikki Haley sold out cheaper than a Panamanian hooker on a Monday night.

  • Liz

    Palin and Rush both know Romney is our best most competent shot and they are working hard to keep him the underdog so he can continue his stealth campaign. So far so good. God bless them for their patriotic help.

  • retire05

    She not saying anything that many of us have been saying for months. So where is the courage in that? Hell, even “conservative” pundits are claiming “It’s a Wrap for Mitt” in the NYPost.

    What’s next? Went we read about a robbery, Palin’s going to come out and say “Well, there obviously was a crime committed here.”

    Give me a break.

  • Liz

    Can we impeach Obama already? The unconsitutional stuff, the murder of border patrol agents, the crazy spending, the killing of the capitalist model….any of these are good reasons. Impeachment anyone? Did he take that provision out of the Constitution via Executive Order? Wouldn’t doubt it.

  • Liz

    Uhh…it’s pretty clear at this point it’s Romney. Americans aren’t dumb. What, you think Huntsman or Paul has a chance? Santorum? How ’bout the bitter government has-been Newt?


  • aprilnovember811

    They’re both absolutely right. How could Romney run against him on Zerocare, when he has his own version, and the person who advised Romney on his plan, also advised Zero.

    John Holdren who advised Romney in his EPA works for Zero’s EPA.

    The establishment Republicans know how to pick em.

  • KornKing

    Steffy sounded mad at Donna for letting the cat out of the bag(after all, everyone is so stupid that none of us could figure it out)

  • Kraig the Krazy Kanadian

    I am the only Conservative alive!!! In fact, I am Ron Paul’s illegitmate spawn.

    Praise me and vote for my Daddy, Ron Paul.

    I need a drink.

  • aprilnovember811

    So you have a problem with her getting paid? I don’t know what you do, or did for a living, but what makes you think your worth it? The color green is ugly on you.

  • aprilnovember811

    The entire Republican Party in charge right now, is also responsible for the deaths of the two Federal Agents, the 200 Mexicans, the theft that was called Stimulus, and loans to green energy. They are responsible for his breaching the Constitution, because they are tasked with stopping it.

    When they don’t stop it, they become complicit. I would add that I pray, this destroys the entire television propaganda arm, including that dreadful FOX. They are complicit for aiding and abetting his origins. They also covered up his little Halloween Party by not reporting on it.

  • Paz

    Romney, Gingrich, Santorum = Constitutional Conservatives and Independents stay home = Obama wins
    Focusing on social issues = Obama wins
    Ron Paul = Freedom wins = Constitutional Conservatives and Independents vote in DROVES = Obama loses in a landslide = Federal Reserve LOSES!!!!!!!!!!!

  • aprilnovember811

    In addition to what I said above, don’t forget the giving of the drone to Iran, by the Muslim Brotherhood plants he put in the DHS and State Dept., the murder of the Navy Seals also.

    Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.

    I saw that, and I immediately thought the same thing, it was obvious.

    Sunday morning Tingles had Romney surrogate John Sununu on and they got into a fight over Romney’s anti-Newt Pac ads.

    I thought it was strange that Tingles was taking Newt’s side and a modest stand against Romney.

    Listen, I will be Mittens Romneycare’s biggest supporter IF he gets the nomination; but until then, its ABM for me.

  • Remco Kimber

    Mitt is the 1%.

    And Obama and his surrogates will pound that point endlessly.

    #12, aprilnovember811, I have absolutely NO problem with Palin earning a living. Hell, I don’t even care if she does it as a political pundit (talking head). But tell us something we don’t know, not confirm the obvious.

    As to what I did for a living: well, I owned my own business that produced a product that buyers wanted. If they had not wanted my product, I would have had no business. But Bubba Clinton made sure that I could not compete with China (putting the American textile industry out of business in the process) so I had to regroup. Sarah is not producing a product, just opinion, and I’m not in the market.

    I have said it before: Palin has a unique talent that could greatly benefit the state she claims to have so much love for. Palin, as others have, could be recruiting businesses to move to Alaska, reducing some of the dependence Alaska has on the rest of us taxpayers. Companies pay well for that kind of promotion (see: finder’s fees). She also could be an excellent spokeswoman for the problems in the Native American community (drugs, alcoholism, rape) as she is married to a Native American.

    Instead, she is now reduced to making obvious statements a day late and a dollar short. Donna Brazille announced that Obama wants to run against Romney and now Palin is picking up on that? That’s not providing information, that’s simply stating what every non-Beltway pundit already knows.

    But hey, take any comment about Sarah Palin that doesn’t offer her worship as an insult. I just think she is wasting her time and talent. And when you look at it through rational eyes, she really is sooooooo 2008.

    The polling proves it. Once opponents start spending money on media ads Romney’s numbers collapse like Chinese drywall. He tied a social issue fanatic who spent $50,000 on TV ads. He’s billed as a left of center man that can draw independant votes but 48% of independants went to Paul and are of high risk going to Obama because of his Iraq withdrawl.

    Dan Rather: As of Today, Obama Would Lose

    [RUSH: I am, I’m a voice in the wilderness here on this whole “Obama is landslidable” business. I was a voice in the wilderness among Steelers fans on Sunday versus the Tebows. I was right about that — and if the election were today, it would be a landslide loss. Well, let me define “landslide.” Five or seven points. It would be big. It would be huge. These people that are doing the polling have no idea of the voter enthusiasm in the anti-Obama ranks out there, no idea whatsoever. On the contrary, they think that you are getting dispirited. They think that the Republican primary fight is boring you and depressing you, and they think a lot of you can be inspired to sit home and not vote because you don’t have a prayer. They think they can create that mind-set in you. That’s what they’re banking on. I happen to know that that isn’t gonna work. There are way too many people who love this country way too much. That isn’t going to happen.]
