I Agree With Sarah’s Analysis


I agree with Sarah Palin’s analysis regarding her choice for VP. Here is a portion of what she told Sean Hannity:

Top of my list is Allen West. I love that he has that military experience. He is a public servant willing to serve for the right reasons. He understands the Constitution. He understands our national foreign policy issues that must be addressed. He has served. I really like him.

They’re going to get clobbered. The media will make things up about them and their record and their reputations and their families. So no matter who it is, so they might as well get someone who is passionate and strong, as I say, like about Allen West, understands the Constitution and wants to put government back on the side of the people.

There are several additional reasons that I have for liking Allen West. Mitt Romney needs to throw the tea party conservatives a bone, and turn a cold shoulder to the GOP establishment for a change. Once the primary season got underway, it became clear that the main goal of the GOP establishment was to make sure a tea party conservative did not win the nomination. They were not immediately trying to make sure that Romney won – they were willing to consider Mitch Daniels, Chris Christie, or even Paul Ryan as the final nominee – as long as it wasn’t a tea party conservative. There are significant trust issues separating the tea party conservatives from Mitt Romney. Thus far, Romney hasn’t been able to prove that his flipping on his previously held positions is permanent. While this turns off tea party conservatives, it does give the Bob Michel wing of the GOP comfort.

Mitt Romney can defeat Obama under the right set of circumstances, but he can also lose to Obama. The fear and loathing the establishment has for tea party conservatives must stop, and Mitt Romney is going to need to embrace tea party conservatives as well as the establishment in order to defeat Obama. Mitt is not going to win by running on his record and biography. He needs to speak to us, and assure us that he truly has changed and is not going to flop back to previously held positions. No surrogate can do this. He must. Choosing Allen West as his VP will have the calming effect of knowing that we have one of ours sitting at the table of his kitchen cabinet.

    • I agree with you about who Romney is hammering. I also agree with Steve Hayes that he needs to continue along this line instead of returning to his previous ways of hammering his GOP primary foes. So what if he does not throw out a lot of negative campaign events to win PA. He is going to win all of those other states in 3 weeks, and PA is no more of a huge win for Santorum than Georgia was for Newt. It is time for Romney to do all of the hammering on the skinny little freak who deserves getting hammered.

  1. Allen West as VP nominee will make the media treatment of Sarah Palin look like hagiography by comparison. But he’ll take the battle to the enemy and stand up against the would-be bullies.

    Picking West would be a bold move for a candidate who thus far has been more calculating than than a Cray supercomputer. Which is why it probably won’t happen. But if it did – and if his campaign people let West be West, it could tip the balance.

  2. I agree completely, civil. Mitt will be making a mistake of monumental proportions if he follows the conventional wisdom of the GOP Establishment and decides that, if he wins the nomination, he can become ‘severely moderate.’

    I continue to hope that he won’t be our nominee because I believe he’s the weakest of the 3 remaining, but if he is, he better be willing to call out the SLN (Skinny Little Narcissist) with the same vigor and vitality with which he has summarily trashed his GOP opponents.

    I’m hoping that the man’s obvious obsession with becoming President outweighs all the advice he’s going to be getting from the McCain crowd to be “civil.”
