If you had no fear of this man before, this will put it into perspective!

Newt: Palin Will ‘Play A Major Role’ In My Administration

In an interview with Wolf Blitzer that will air today at 5:25 pm E.T. on CNN, Newt Gingrich said he will ask Sarah Palin “to play a major role” in his administration if elected President.

Gingrich’s remarks come a day after the former Alaska governor and vice-Presidential candidate made waves by offering a quasi-endorsement of Gingrich on Fox News.

“I want to see this thing continue because iron sharpens iron,” Palin told Fox’s Sean Hannity. “If I had to vote in order to keep it going, I would vote for Newt.”

Palin recently said she was unsure whether her endorsement would actually help any candidates at the moment, which may help to explain her slightly unconventional fist-bump for Newt. She explained it further this way:

“I want more debates, more vetting of candidates, because we know the mistake made in our country four years ago with having a candidate that was not vetted to the degree that he should have been.”

Most observers, and even most of the presidential campaigns, now say that if Mitt Romney wins South Carolina’s primary this Saturday – even by a slim margin – then the race is in effect over, and it will be all but impossible for the other candidates to challenge him credibly for the nomination. However, polls suggest Gingrich may be making gains in the state, and should he be able to unite the “anti-Romney” vote behind him, then he could attract enough money and support to help prolong the contest. Conservative commentators including talk show host Laura Ingraham and RedState founder Erick Ericksson have recently said that Rick Perry should drop out before Saturday in order to help solidify support behind Newt Gingrich.

    Well, there’s the kiss of death for Newt. Doesn’t he know what her slobbering did for Tebow?

    Hopefully he really will vet her. Ask her will she be on the job 8 hrs a day and not at home watching soap operas.

      She may still dress like an 80 year old Chinese immigrant woman with cataracts, but her taste has risen far above her whole set of color coordinated pajamas from Walmart.

      Newt will have to open a half a million dollar credit line at Target for Sarah under his Administration.

      “…Ask her will she be on the job 8 hrs a day and not at home …”

      WHAT?

      VP Sarah Palin was expecting per diem to live in Wasilla instead of Washington DC.

      Maybe if you tell her there is an NBA team in Washington DC with lots of black guys, she’ll be in Wash with her knee pads on and her tongue a waggin’.

      We should flood Newt’s email with links to Bailey’s, McGinniss’, & Dunn’s books. At least he won’t be able to claim he wasn’t warned if the unthinkable should happen, but it would be OK if he were to put Palin in charge of the Department of Law. It would be the perfect place for her…Sarah could spend years looking for it.

    He is going after her supporters and has no clue, at this point, how stuipid she is. I cannot believe he wouldn’t be talking w/McCain et al. Gingrich and Palin are too much alike and he’ll eat her up and spit her out if he has to and trust me he will have to!

      You would of thought somebody high up in the Republican Party would take Newt to the side and ask him,

      “WTF are you doing? Sarah Palin lost it for us last time and now her 3rd underage high school dropout is pregnant! That’s at least three pregnancies before marriage for Palin’s children! That woman is an idiot”

    We have nothing to fear from Mr. Oatmeal and his wife who suffers from Avian Bone Syndrome (hollow bones) of ever getting near the White House. But it sure is fun having him break every Reagan Neocon rule to hurt Mitt’s credibility against Obama after the Primary.

    As for dangling a carrot to bring an incompetent plagiarist on staff, I’d sure like to see Sarah face a real journalist pool and field questions about how she called Newt an Establishment Good Old Boy. Cause we all know that Sarah’s all about personal, political and world-view growth.

    Gingrich is doomed. His ex-wife is about to unload some serious dirt on
    him. So it seems like the Palin curse is about to do its job. Anything the
    crazy as a loon woman touches turns to crap.

    Newt is toast and the closest Sarah will get to the White House is if Todd
    And her do a tour of the Washington Monument.

      I don’t know if the Secret Service would let Sarah & Todd close to the White House, despite the rooms that are open to the public. Palin would be hiding out in the Oval Office, pretending she’s the Queen of all the “rill ‘merikins with Tawd as the First Pimp. This is not what any of us want to see in the White House except for a few delusional RWNJ’s who still think she’s going to be coronated on 1/20/13!

    I don’t see Mitt’s chances being hurt at this point.. He’s certainly able to stand toe to toe with President Obama on current issues. I’m really looking forward to those debates. I’m open to hear each one defend his positions.. I’m totally open to vote for who I believe can do the best job for ALL Americans. The Republican primary has been excruciatingly painful. As a Republican, I’m looking for honest, civic minded individuals, mastering in basic civics. Is that too much to ask? I don’t want these disingenuous, narcissistic weasels ..

      I think Mitt will be completely out-classed by Obama. For one thing, President Obama can think on his feet. Romney sticks his feet in his mouth every time he is surprised with a question for which he didn’t plan. Romney has quite a bit of baggage that is going to be opened and inspected in the national election. One thing that will be scrutinized is the fact that he took the hard drives from all the computers when he left the governorship. Why would he do that unless he had something to hide? It wasn’t illegal, but definitely suspicious.

      Mitt cannot open his mouth without lying. Everyone knows this, especially the lapdogs and hacks in the media, who will never call Mitt out.. Why? One reason only. They still cannot stand the idea that a BLA man is in their White House.

      Are you SERIOUS…!!??

      OMG do you not read the newspapers?…I mean it….Romney’s “positions” have changed with the wind..it is WELL documented.in print and on video..even Huntsman said he is a “well oiled weathervane” before he prostituted himself and endorsed him.

      Romney’s no better than Sarah Palin when it comes to “just say anything” to get where you want to go.

      Really you disappoint me Syrin…you have your own blog, surely you know how to perform research via the internet, from bona fide non partisan web sites….let alone the debates thus far.

      Romney felt no compunction accepting a “win” in Iowa, to give him momentum in New Hampshire…even though it was a mere 8 votes, AND the person that recorded the votes IMMEDIATELY came forward to let everyone know, while he wrote down 20 it was recorded as 2….as it turns out Santorum DID win and the republicans REFUSE to officially declare a winner!

      Talk about “voter fraud”

      I really don’t expect you to post this, but, I can’t decide if you are hiding your intellect, or are just plain dishonest.

        Everyone has their own beliefs and I don’t expect you or anyone to believe exactly the way I do. I’m a Conservative Republican with an open mind. I’ve been disappointed myself by liberals, progressives lack of willingness to listen to opposing views with respect and courtesy. Instead I personally get name calling, questioning my intellect and plain bullying.. This does not help to persuade me, if that is even your end game. No one has all the answers, especially me. FYI, I don’t filter comments on my blog, you post what you wrote… good, bad or ugly!

    cough, cough…

    Sure Newt. If it is the best thing you got goin for yourself… involving Someone like Sarah Palin.

    Sure Newt.
    I suppose Newt believes that only liberals think Palin is a fraud.

    Then again, like McCain, brain power and morals isn’t what is needed to garner votes, Newt.
    Hate screech combined with lies about accomplishments is all that needs to happen to garner votes?

    Last I checked, most republicans were smarter than that…

    Palin will get him the evangelical vote that he could not get on his own.
    His 3 marriages should be a problem with family values voters, but he only has 1 more then St. Ronald.
    He did not say what he would do with her, but maybe Ambassador to say Russia?
    Convenient for her commute?

      I’m sad that she’d help get anyone the evangelical vote. Mainly, because she’s such a bad representation and doesn’t deserve the creds..

      I’ll defer to Syrin, as I’m not an Evangelical Christian, but I not only doubt that SP could bring Gingrich many Evangelical votes, I doubt that anyone could. In 2008 a lot of people didn’t know that much about SP, but they know more now, and they know a lot about Gingrich. It’s not just three marriages, it’s adultery with the successor while married to wives one and two, in both cases after they had been diagnosed with serious illnesses and in both cases proposing marriage to one before mentioning divorce to the other. (I believe repentance means not doing it again?) He blamed his adultery on “how passionately I felt about this country” and “work[ing] too hard.” [All from Wikipedia] I’m sure Evangelical Christians appreciate the warning that hard work and patriotism lead to adultery.

      Then there’s the fact that he’s an ex-Evangelical — he left the Southern Baptist Church to convert to Catholicism in 2009. [also Wikipedia] If I were an Evangelical, I could accept a Catholic as a sincere Christian — but LEAVING the Baptists for Catholicism would be a deal-breaker. (“OUR salvation in Christ isn’t good enough for you?” or “Newt, why didn’t you try to follow our faith before leaving it?”)

      This is a man who loves himself with all his heart and all his soul and all his strength, and if there’s anything left for anyone else it would be a surprise.

    Mitt’s campaign may be in serious trouble.
    The recent disclosure of his Cayman Island funds will easy for the average voter to understand. Once they hear about them. Then there is his claimed 15% tax rate. I believe the actual rate over a 10 year period is probably 8% or less for Mitt. Mitt would pay 15% if he had no sharp tax help. What are the chances of that? He fires the help if they don’t do a good job.

    Mitt will have some vague explanation about job creation and that he’s unemployed and worried about being fired. Just like when he explained the kennel was airtight. Newt and Ron and Rick will be sure the public understands just how Mitt is not like the average voter. He is more like Ken Lay and Bernie Ebbers. Maybe someone will bring up Bernie Madoff or Alan Stanford.

    For a number of reasons the candidates are out to help themselves and settle scores with Mitt and his backers. Saint Ronnie’s Eleventh Commandment does not apply here. These candidates don’t control their supporters or the outside funders of all the attack ads that are ready to be turned loose.

    From the beloved Mudflats:

    …Yes, (Newt/GOP) are egotistical, narrow minded machine goons… but all the more reason God protected me from getting up on stage in front of 5000 political and media “elites” to praise him, then it be shown across the nation.

    At some point Newt would have shown his true colors anyway and ~~~we would have been devastated having known we’d earlier prostituted ourselves up in front of the country introducing him and acting like that good ol’ rich white guy is the savior of the party.~~~

    NEWS FLASH

    If Newt wins the GOP nomination and then looses to Obama then the blame can fall on Dumb and Dumber! It would be McCain and Palin’s fault for the Republicans loosing!

    1) McCain knows Sarah Palin is a bad seed and he should of warned Newt to keep her away from him. But noooo! McCain did the opposite and said she was the best thing he ever did! So now that the word is out that Palin will play an important roll in Newt’s administration, people will go out of their way to make sure he looses.

    2) Sarah Palin knows she is incompetent, a lightning rod that people hate so her name associated with Newt will bring him a loss! It will be Sarah Palin’s fault as well for Newt’s defeat!
