Palin Half-Endorses Newt, Wants Primaries to Drag On

Breaking News

“I want to see this [race] continue because iron sharpens iron, steel sharpens steel,”
said Palin on this morning’s Fox News with Sean Hannity. (Watch Palin talk to Hannity here.)

Palin said that she hopes Gingrich wins – but only in South Carolina, and only because it would keep the Republican nomination battle going.

Palin’s wish for a drawn-out primary clashes with the conventional wisdom that long primaries are a Bad Thing. The thinking goes that a long primary will scar and bloody the Republican nominee, who will almost certainly be Romney, and making him easier prey for Obama.

Do you agree with Palin - do you want a drawn-out primary battle, or a quick decision?

Someone tell Palin to STFU and go take care of her mentally challenged-disabled retarded son. We have already decided to select Romney as the republican’s non-presidential nominee.

OBAMA, THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING…………CONTINUALLY MAKES A FOOL OF HIMSELF.

The White House claimed Republicans' decision to attach a pipeline provision to the short-term payroll tax cut extension last year scuttled the project -- that provision compelled the Obama administration to make a decision on the pipeline in two months.

Obama, in a written statement, said that deadline "prevented a full assessment of the pipeline's impact."

Obama and Pelosi are a joke. They didn’t give the congress any time to read a 3000 page health bill and yet Obama has two months. Boy must be a slow reader. Obama gave the congress 2 hours to look at his picks, that he then appointed with out senate approval, WHILE CONGRESS WAS STILL IN SESSION.

I want an honest battle...let the people decide who they want as president.

But, Sarah...I hope you're wrong about Newt. I don't want him to win ANY state. He or his superpacs are getting downright disgusting. With all he's said and saying or agreeing with about Romney and Santorum, I hope he finishes behind Ron Paul.

First off she did a half-assed job as Gov. of Alaska

Secondly she did a half-assed job of preparing to be V.P.

Now she half-assed supported Newt.

I'm seeing a pattern here.

They didn't cover the other part of her statement when she said "And paper covers rock."

More Le Dumbo Dumbospam. Now he's off topic using the Faux News Ministry of Propaganda as a source. You read the 3000 page report and get back in three or four years when you're finished, dunce.
