C4P’s official position represents that of the Governor’s. That position is illustrated in our efforts to unite against Obama to make sure he is replaced. Governor Palin recently said: “do me a favor” and “give Romney a shot.” Further, she talked to Sean Hannity a few weeks ago and stated that after a “competitive primary,” we had our winner — Mitt Romney. She was and remains 100% on board in helping to replace Barack Obama.
We, too, are on board with the Governor to not only making sure Obama is fired but that we fill the House and Senate with good conservatives. It’s been working like a charm. Governor Palin and her supporters helped make a huge impact in 2010’s mid-term elections. In 2012, her endorsements are making a huge difference as well such as Ted Cruz in Texas and Deb Fischer in Nebraska.
Despite Governor Palin’s quotes listed above on Romney or the facts that she’s continued to galvanize the Republican Party for Romney’s benefit, some out there claiming to be Romney supporters are passing around stories today ascribing false conspiracies to Governor Palin. The piece has surfaced here and here and other places.
The phony story cites another one from a Ron Paul support-website which says:
Sara[h] Palin is in town and playing games, she is trying to steal the nomination, she sent out packets to all of the delegates asking them to vote for her if there is a brokered convention and she is trying to cause a brokered convention. I spoke to delegates at my booth who said they received the packet. None of our delegates will vote for her, putting my dislike for her aside, if she helps with a brokered convention I am fine with it because I think we could win a brokered convention.
The writer who cites this quote goes on to say:
Sarah Palin just exposed herself as two faced politician since she’s advocating people to vote for Mitt Romney on television but apparently working to make a brokered convention happen. That’s why its not surprising that why Sarah Palin not being invited to the GOP convention or why she hasn’t been allowed to have an opportunity to speak at the convention. You can’t expect to be invited to an event if you intend to undermine that event and have not been supportive of the GOP nominee.
I call on everyone from simple voters to news reporters to conservative commentators to RNC chairmen to call her out on her duplicitous behavior and speech. Is she really loyal to the GOP party? Does she really want Mitt to win in 2012? If so, why is she trying to engineer a brokered convention? If she’s not trying to engineer a brokered convention, why are there reports that she is?
For starters, nobody knows what happened with regard to the convention. While some choose to doubt Reince Priebus’s claim that Palin was in fact offered a prime time slot (as he told Mark Levin), the fact is it would have more official credibility since Priebus represents the RNC as opposed to what the writer here says: that she wasn’t invited at all.
Second, what the writer of this is describing are the delegate packets sent out by the members of the “Earthquake” organization which we have denounced fully. About two months ago, my C4P Editor-in-chief, Stacy Drake wrote:
To believe that Governor Palin has some sort of secret plan to steal the nomination from Mitt Romney, based on things she said in the past (much before October 5th) is out-of-touch with current day reality.
There is no mathematical way that Governor Palin could get the nomination this year. She has no delegates. Mitt Romney has enough delegates to take it. He currently has 1,473, while only needing 1,144 to win. People looking to Ron Paul delegates for assistance to knock Mitt out of the race, need to consider that Ron Paul’s has conceded and has asked his supporters to be “respectful” in Tampa.
Some however, are ignoring this reality, spinning Governor Palin’s words, and currently building a case against Governor Palin’s character on our forum. That is not going to be tolerated on C4P any longer. To insinuate that Governor Palin will lose her credibility if she doesn’t do what people (who cherry-pick her words) want her to do, is indeed building a case for the future. And the future clearly tells us that what these people want to happen, isn’t going to happen, so this only has one way to go.
No longer will you be permitted to post “Earthquake” conspiracy theories on C4P…Zero tolerance for this, by the way. Enough is enough.
In addition to Stacy’s words, we have had to unfortunately enforce this policy as certain members of the very small group were becoming increasingly difficult. As anyone who pays attention can see, we have not tolerated it and we still will not.
Nevertheless, before checking into the facts, the alleged Romney supporter continues his bellicose world salad about the delegate packets. So basically, an entire conspiracy (false) was ascribed to Governor Palin, nothing was confirmed with us or with the folks officially connected to the Governor. In addition, it is apparent that before writing this nonsense, the writer didn’t even bother looking at the packets sent out. If he had he’d have seen the following image.
So as you can see, when you support a candidate or public figure, a certain amount of responsibility should be exercised. Further, Romney supporters who truly want their candidate to win in November against Obama (as Governor Palin has stated she wants also) might want to stop and ask why anyone who claims to be a supporter of someone we already know will be our nominee would spend more time perpetuating lies and falsehoods about Governor Palin instead of going after Obama.
It’s sad when you consider what Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have stacked against them in the coming months. Supporters like this only add to the agony which awaits.
If Mitt Romney does not emerge victorious in November, the entire country will suffer. But it won’t be because of Governor Palin or her serious supporters who’ve already denounced the radical group responsible for what is referenced above. It will be because of folks masking themselves as Romney supporters and doing all they can to give such extremism a platform by perpetuating it themselves.
I strongly urge Romney supporters to prevent this untrue nonsense from being published on their websites and blogs and to be responsible handling conspiracy theories, just as we have.
It’s the right thing to do.
