ABC Piece Calls Governor Palin "Sideshow", Doesn’t Mention Her Main Source is Mitt Romney’s "Wonderful Friend"





Unbelievable. Late yesterday ABC’s Huma Khan wrote a piece on the Republican race in which she essentially called Governor Palin a "sideshow candidate". No, she didn’t say that directly, but given the large picture of Governor Palin right beneath the words "sideshow candidate", the intent is clear. That ABC would do a hit-piece on Governor Palin is not exactly "unbelievable", of course. Far from it. But here’s what I found noteworthy. The main source for Huma’s article is Ron Kaufman, whom Khan describes as a:

Republican strategist who worked on George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan’s campaigns.

OK, fair enough.  Kaufman’s a Republican strategist who once worked for Bush and Reagan. At least the guy goes on the record.  But, unfortunately,  that’s not the whole story, not by a long shot.  Just out of curiosity, I Googled Kaufman and, for no particular reason, I included Mitt Romney’s name in the search (perhaps it was my suspicious nature, or maybe the fact that the article mentioned that more serious candidates, like Mitt, had laid out a "vision" or something).  At any rate, the results of the search were fascinating, to say the least.

In March, Cape Cod Today suggested that Kaufman is "Mitt’s new main man". A quick look at Kaufman’s Twitter indicates he’s got a fever, and the only cure is Mitt Romney.  Lest you think Kaufman has only recently worked for Romney, click here to see video of "Romney Sr. Advisor Ron Kaufman" discussing Mitt’s performance in the New Hampshire Primary in 2008. Here’s video of Romney campaign spokesman Ron Kaufman on MSNBC in 2007, claiming that Romney is an economic conservative.  And finally, we present video of "Romney Senior Advisor" Ron Kaufman, whom Mitt calls his "wonderful friend" extolling Mitt Romney’s pro-choice bonafides in 2007:

The Google search contained plenty more links connecting Romney and Kaufman, about 351,000 to be precise, but you get the picture: Kaufman is and has been working for Mitt Romney.  To be clear, I have no issue with Kaufman.  This is America and Republican "strategists" are free to support whomever they want, even flip-flopping phonies who support the Obama Administration on cap and trade, ethanol subsidieshealth care mandates, and the man-made global warming hoax.

But what about Khan?  Shouldn’t she have…oh, I don’t know…disclosed the fact that her main source for a Palin hit-piece works for Mitt Romney?  Or was it enough to only mention that he once worked for Bush and Reagan 20 years or so in the past, and what he’s been up to lately is immaterial? Or am I being overly critical here and it was all just an innocent mistake, and she simply didn’t notice those 351,000 links connecting Romney and Kaufman? I’m skeptical.

    So far Rush or Levin has not mentioned how MB and now Romney people are attacking Sarah. I wonder if they will today?

      Rush and Levin don’t want to start a civil war on the Right.

      The Establishment does. They are trying to give Bachmann a chance to walk this back.

      They don’t get that Rollins is the one in charge over there, not Bachmann.

        Granted Rollins was taken into MB’s fold, don’t you think there has to be coherence/unity of purpose in MB organization? Is she not the supposedly standard bearer? One would think  Rollin will consult with her before he goes out pronouncing any of his stance or attacks about the other candidates without her knowing the context of his statements or his message I would also like to think that all statements/ messages for public consumption has to be approved by her. Apparently she has put her faith and trust in Rollins judgment.

        Oy.. must be a big oooops?

      Rush and Levin realize that Romney is the opponent and have been focusing their attacks on him (like the global warming quote).

      I think this is what Tammy Bruce was saying yesterday with her tweets. Bachmann is a distraction, Romney is the opponent.

            Palin agrees that there is global warming and we should do something about it And she says that humans may be a SMALL factor as one of many causes….

            From the transcript:
            Couric: What’s your position on global warming? Do you believe it’s man-made or not?

            Palin: Well, we’re the only Arctic state, of course, Alaska. So we feel the impacts more than any other state, up there with the changes in climates. And certainly, it is apparent. We have erosion issues. And we have melting sea ice, of course. So, what I’ve done up there is form a sub-cabinet to focus solely on climate change. Understanding that it is real. And …

            Couric: Is it man-made, though in your view?

            Palin: You know there are — there are man’s activities that can be contributed to the issues that we’re dealing with now, these impacts. I’m not going to solely blame all of man’s activities on changes in climate. Because the world’s weather patterns are cyclical. And over history we have seen change there. But kind of doesn’t matter at this point, as we debate what caused it. The point is: it’s real; we need to do something about it.

              She has never endorsed the theory of man made global warming.  John McCain believed in it in 2008.  Since Alaska is the state most affected by melting ice, she appointed a group to study not the theory, but the facts and possible effects of temperature change in Alaska.  As John McCain’s running mate she was trying to remain with the narrative of the campaign without buying in.  Notice she reversed the process, man’s activities blamed on climate change rather than the other way around.  This is actually correct.  Changes in climate are responsible for man’s activities.  If we were still in the last ice age, we would not have developed what we know as modern civilization.  I would guess that as governor of a state that was potentially warming, she would have been thinking about how to use that to Alaska’s advantage and how to minimize negative effects.

                  We have been in a cooling period for the last two decades now, and a decade or so ago they were talking about the perils of global cooling!  The fact is that this is a cyclical pattern, and Sarah mentioned that too.  In Alaska, they see the effects of warming and cooling more than most places because of glaciers and open sea ice, polar bears, flooding of ocean side villages, etc., and that was her main concern…how these cycles affect man and the environment around him, more than vice versa. The whole thing was closely monitored and studied in Alaska under her direction.

        Correct! Rush on yesterday’s show pretty much kissed off Romney for good! After playing an audio of Romney climbing onboard the man-made global warming bandwagon Rush said:"Bye-bye nomination,bye bye nomination,another one down". I’m paraphrasing, Rush  also said: "All of a sudden Romney comes out for man-made global warming (in addition to Romneycare and ethanol subsidies) then miraculously he jumps into the lead in the latest Washington post/ABC news poll". Way to go Romney,everyone knows now that Bachmann is a stalking horse for you and your directing all the attacks and youv’e been written off by the biggest Conservative media figure in the universe.

    That’s the lamestream media!

    Regarding Bachmann:

    Anyone with a brain knows that a 2012 Republican presidential nominee who had strongly alienated the millions of Palin supporters would be in big trouble. By sending Rollins out to harshly, deceitfully attack Governor Palin, Bachmann has strongly alienated these Americans. Therefore, she is obviously not a serious candidate.

    This is very important. Somehow all members of the House of Representatives Tea Party Caucus must be put on record: Do they agree with Bachmann’s attacks on Palin?

    Bachmann claims the mantle of "a Tea Party leader," and Palin does not. Do members of the Tea Parties believe Bachmann is a Tea Party leader and Palin is not, both are Tea Party leaders, or no politician is a Tea Party leader?

      It’s time to petition Allen West to take over the Tea Party caucus. Michele has been too busy running for POTUS to represent the Tea Party. Look, even though we all are Palin fans this is much more than Ed Rollins bashing Palin. Ed Rollins has bashed the Tea Party on numerous occasions and that means Michele doesn’t represent the Tea Party any longer, as if she ever did!.  Michele hasn’t done a damn thing for the Tea Party since she hastily formed the caucus. Even though we all know that Governor Palin WILL run if for some reason she didn’t Michele has no right to fracture the Tea Party. Tea Party people have spent 2 and a half years working hard and do not deserve a power hungry POS like Michele taking us out. Michele is a tool of the Republican elites and we have to neuter her now. Michele wants to make this a cat fight and it really isn’t. It’s Michele against the Tea Party. That way Rollins can’t elevate her to Palin’s status. Let’s take Michele out now.

      My family is part of the Tea Party movement and we see Bachmann as someone that has crowned herself as the queen of the Tea Party. Palin has been in the trenches with the Tea Party and has always made it know that she is just an average member like the rest of us. She has aways told the media that the great thing about the Tea Party is that it has NO leader. I don’t know what Bachmann is thinking but her latest moves will cause her to crash and burn.

    Ahh who cares?  To expect a media person to do due diligence in regards to reporting the facts regarding Sarah is to be disapointed.  We know what they do, so there is no need to be surprised when they live up to our expectations.

    It’s good to call them out but I don’t waste too much time on feeling angry otherwise, I don’t have the time and energy to promote positive things about Sarah.

    I figure EVERYONE attacking Sarah nowadays is somehow connected to Mitt Romney or the GOP establishment/elite.  

    And, funny, Ed Rollins also once said Michelle Bachmans not a serious player.

    "More recently, Rollins dismissed Bachmann’s chances in the 2012 presidential race. In April, weeks after Bachmann revealed her plan to form a presidential exploratory committee, Rollins appeared on MSNBC’s Hardball and offered his two cents about what kind of politician would win the GOP nomination:
    At the end of the day, you know, we’re going to have a candidate who has been a governor, I assume. There’s no Washingtonians in this mix. It ain’t going to be Donald Trump. I don’t think it’s going to be Congresswoman Bachmann."http://motherjones.com/politics/2011/06/michele-bachmann-ed-rollins-president-2012

    That’s why it’s important not to hire talking heads for major campaign leadership roles. Anything they’ve said in the past is going to be dredged up and brought forth so a campaign has to address it verses spending time on other more important issues.

    Yeah, like most reporters do research? They complain that Palin wouldn’t release an itinerary for goodness sakes, because maybe it might make them break a sweat.

    Journalism died in 2008.

    Ron Kaufmann, has been an inside the beltway tool for years. He’s used his government jobs to make millions for himself using our tax dollars. He’s been in Ma. politics for over 30 years sniffing pols butts. He’s connected to Romneycare bigtime, probably his most trusted advisor. When he speaks, it’s Romneycare talking.

    Who is Kaufmann.

    This should say something when Michelle Bachmann did not even comment on the horrible comments made by Rollins. This says she agrees with what he said. One good thing out of this is that everyone can see how two-faced she is.

    this attacks is another tie  to show bachmann and mitt  are working together.  their campaigns are using the same talking points.

      I think that’s true.  Myth prefers to let others do his dirty work while he hides under his desk.  What a coward.  I can’t stand the guy.  RINO wimp.

    Sarah Palin needs to stay specifically on issues and taking Obama out.

    Video of her dissing another Republican is priceless to the enemy.

    Let the media and the institutionalized establishment eat each other alive.  Sarah can come in later and view the remains.  Promote how she will fix things. Stay above the fray in the Primary – she needs  the support of all of the Republicans and their constituents in the end.  Those of us that are long termed unemployed want solutions, not back biting – we don’t have the energy for any more trauma in our lives.

    I heart Sarah Palin.

    In the movie, "The League of Extraodinary Men," Tom Sawyer (Shane West) says to be Mr. Hyde (Jason Flemyng)…"am not afraid".. to which he replies "You stink of FEAR!"

    Mitt Romney: I don’t mind Sarah Palin taking all the exposure from my presidential announcement in New Hampshire.

    My gutt is telling me that Mitt and Bachman possibillity have made a deal, that if Romney wins the primary, Bachman would be her running mate.  Bachman is running to take away some votes from Sarah, maybe that’s why Ed Rollins now works for Bachman? I hope I’m wrong….

      I think you’re right.  I could see her as a VP.  She’s a natural-born back bencher.

    Sarah won’t go into the gutter with these snakes.  She will stay above it and keep getting her message out.

      It is quite clear that MB is an opportunistic sell-out, probably to Romney, but certainly to someone else in the GOP establishment, if not he.

      No self-avowed Tea Party partisan would want to be caught within smelling distance of the stinking old corpse of rotten corruption that is Ed Rollins. She has agreed to allow herself to be used to try and undercut and discredit the only real threat blocking the Myth’s path to the nomination. 

      Maybe she will get a committee chairmanship out of it, maybe support for a Senate run, maybe a cabinet post – who knows (?), but something. MB never had a rat’s chance in a cat hotel of getting the nomination, so she is cutting the best deal she can before she has to face the voters again, next year.

      Sarah also happens to represent the greatest threat to Barf Vader’s re-election, so the BSM is happily complicit in spreading as much disinformation and outright lies about her from allegedly credible GOP sources, wherever such discredited voices come from.

      Honest and transparent reporting is not the purpose of what the BSM does. Not when it comes to Sarah Palin.

      Fortunately, Sarah has been through this gauntlet before. No one is better prepared to deal with this kind of duplicity than she, because there has never been another politician in this country’s history who has more experience dealing with it.

      The shameful and pathetic performance of MB that we are witnessing, in real time, just underlines the special character of Sarah Palin. Her response to each challenge, every time, is to just get stronger. Myth and the media are just helping to train Jack Dempsey for the bigger fight against an already overmatched Jess Willard.

      Too bad they can’t stop this fight on humanitarian grounds. It’s going to be brutal.

    This is the Mitt Romney campaign that we loathe.  Mitt hides behind the curtain while his
    henchmen ratchet up the snark and lies on Palin.
