Palin Wants Rubio and Ayotte Primaried
Townhall, by Katie Pavlich

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 6/26/2013 8:28:27 PM

The Gang of Eight's so-called "immigration overhaul" is pretty much dead on arrival in the House, but that isn't stopping Senators Marco Rubio and Kelly Ayotte from voting for it. But apparently, the House not taking up the bill isn't all these two, and maybe other Republicans, have to worry about. Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is calling for both to be primaried. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who has the most influence among conservative voters in Republican primaries, told Breitbart News on Tuesday that Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) should be primaried

Palin is right.
Both of them cozied up to McCain.
He lost.
Gomez lost because he was Dem Lite.
Ayotte - it´s not too late - stop letting the old bulls like McCain and Grahamnesty drag you down.
Go with Cruz, Lee and Paul.

Their actions clearly indicate that they believe they can do without the support of conservatives. I guess we´ll see if they are right. I only know they have made an enemy of me.

Did Palin forget--or does she hope everyone else has forgotten--that she not only heartily endorsed Kelly Ayotte in 2010, but designated Ayotte as a "Granite Grizzly"?

Palin mentions in the interview that she supported Ayotte because she did not support amnesty and did support enforcement of the border. Palin says she should be primaried because she did not keep her campaign promise.

It´s all well and good to be angry and say, "Let´s primary ´em!"

It´s quite another thing to come up with appealing, skillful and well financed primary opponents who can actually win a general election.

Do you really want to go there? Lets compare Palins record against Rove and there rest of the Republican Establishments win verse loss. Rather then doubling down on a mistake, Palin is going to work to correct it. An odd way of going about business for the Establishment flying monkeys to understand I am sure, but then again trading your base for the hope that illegal immigrants will make up for their lost votes is perfectly sound stategery for them. So I can see why the confusion is festering.

Have you forgotten that both Ayotte and Rubio ran as Tea Party Conservatives?

The argument is over border security before legalization/amnesty. Fairly simple concept but impossible to achieve with too many RINOs in the senate!

Thank goodness for conservatives in the house.

Palin could primary Jeff Flake in AZ -if that´s now her permanent residence .
Or declare for the Alaska Senate seat of Mark Begich , up in 2014 or primary Republican Congressman Don Young,
also up in 2014.
It´s called putting your money where your mouth is.
Palin should also be wary of accusing Ayotte and Rubio of turning their back on the voters when she did exactly that to the Alaska voters who elected her.

It´s not fair to hold Palin´s endorsement of Ayotte and Rubio against her. To do so is to attribute to her some mystical power to see into a person´s heart. No one has such power. We were all conned by two skilled liars.

Sarah was lied to by Ayotte and Rubio just like the rest of us, and while she may refer to it as a flip flop I am not so generous. In my opinion, they lied to everyone to get elected, then betrayed us in their first term. Adultery with the democrats while still on their Tea Party honeymoon. Throw them both out.

And as far as Sarah supporting a path to citizenship for illegals ... that was just a generality. I could support a path to citizenship if it carried with it a lifetime ban on voting. It´s doable. The ability to vote does not automatically follow citizenship. Convicted felons are still citizens, yet they can´t vote. So, start as an illegal and you maybe get part way, but no further? Maybe. But being willing to discuss it doesn´t merit expulsion from the conservative club.

Sad part of politics is that we don´t always have a good choice and have to choose the lesser of two evils.

Many do not show their true colors when running for positions of power!

Each day we are learning more about Washington that is not complimentary.

Pray for America and mainly for our elected officials, including the president, that each one become involved in the needs of all Americans and learn to speak up for righteousness, something we have forgotten or never knew.

Oh...so NOW Sarah Palin wants "Open Borders" RINO´s to face primary opposition!

Too bad she didn´t feel that way in 2010...she could have REALLY made a difference for the better had she not supported John McCain for re-election!

What makes it even worse is that she endorsed McCain´s Open Border "Spawn" in 2012...Jeff Flake!

Thanks, Sarah! You´ve really "helped" your adopted home of Arizona!

Didn´t McPain run as a ´Secure the Border First´ candidate in 2010 or did someone impersonate him in those video clips that have been played these last several weeks?

And if I´m not mistaken, wasn´t that flake Flake a strong supporter of border security in 2012.

Please correct me if I´m wrong about these two RINOs.

Extraordinary how the same people pounce on Sarah Palin whenever she exercises her right to speak feely, trotting out all the old well worn falsehoods. Surely McPain´s influence over the two new Senators is obvious, all to easy for a newbie in DC to be subsumed by the wolves in sheeps´ clothing. Rubio has the same fast talking disease as democrats, disallowing anyone else to break in and point out the weakness of their statements. Sarah Palin is putting focus on two who have not turned out to be as conservative as they proclaimed they were.

I´ll decide based on today´s actions, if that´s OK.

Just because I once bought a new 1978 Chrysler doesn´t mean I´d buy a ´78 Chrysler today. And if I were an NFL coach, I wouldn´t have Bart Starr start for me today.

I´m scratching my head over the "but back then, you said" objections posters are making. And over the desire to get some third person´s approval before deciding whether X or Y or Z should be supported as a candidate.

Even if we give Sarah the benefit of the doubt for endorsing her benefactor in 2010, it is difficult to do the same for Jeff Flake in 2012. Oh, sure...he became a "campaign convert"

Speaking as a 40-year resident, I don´t believe Sarah turned her back on me. Taking into account the situation she, her staff, and my State were in (frivolous lawsuits taking time and money away from them doing the work I voted for her to do, what would folks have had her do? How would you have had her handle the situation? None of her detractors, both here and in general has ever adequately answered the question. Hard to take those folks seriously and respect their opinions.

I don´t understand Kelley jumping on tis bandwagon.Rubio was set as a stooge front man for this bizarre out reach simply because he was Hispanic and supposedly gave him creds with the average hispanic voter. Number one,Rubio is of Cuban descent which is a hell of a lot different that your average Mexican or central or south american hispanic.

You´re better off trying to sell Christmas trees the day after Christmas than convincing republicans/conservatives and tea party people that Obama will do any kind of border enforcement no matter what´s in the law.

it´s not going to be easy to find another republican that can win in NH and although I agree with Palin that she needs to be primaried,it´s not a very practical thing to do.

The other side of this is Palin sending a message about back stabbers which only adds to her creds as far as people trusting her.

She made mistakes and is trying to correct them. Thats not the political way to do things.
Her other options are to pretend there was no mistake, or admit the mistake but hope it will be forgotten. I like the option she chose. It displays more character.
For some here and elsewhere, it is easy. If she dragged a family from a burning house, she would be criticized for not putting the fire out.

So... if a politician that someone supports initially changes their views (say going from not supporting abortion to a more ´nuanced´ stance), does things they originally said they would not (passing legislation that infringes on the second amendment), and just generally takes a path that is the opposite of what the supporter might have originally expected then the supporter is required to stick with that candidate anyway?

I just had an interesting insight into the whole ´Romney, no matter what´ campaign waged here last year.

If some of you had taken the time to learn that Rubio, Ayotte, McCain and Flake campaigned on "no amnesty" and "secure the borders", you might have commented differently. Of course, some of you will take any opportunity to attack Palin, regardless of the issue. I get it.

When a candidate takes a specific stand on an issue, it´s the same as a promise. It´s a promise to the voters and it´s a promise to anyone who endorses/supports them. They broke their promise on one of the most important issues we have.

For me, it goes beyond these four Republicans. I condemn any Senator who votes for a bill they haven´t read. If you listen to Rubio´s weak defense of this bill, it´s apparent that not even he has read all of it. I doubt that the other three have either.

Those who claim that Palin turned her back on the people of Alaska are either uninformed, dishonest or a little of both. How can anyone expect her to be bankrupted just so she could hold on to the office? Her administration was spending 90% of its time defending the bogus charges and fulfilling FOIA requests. If she had held on, the same people who criticize her for resigning would be criticizing her for putting her power ahead of the interests of the state.

She was on the hook for over $500,000 in legal bills and there was no indication that it wouldn´t continue to rise as long as she remained in office.

People who hammer her as a quitter prove just how effective Alinsky´s Rules For Radicals are.

Yes, that was certainly the story put out later, but not in the initial announcement.
Various media sources at the time said she gave no "firm reasons" for stepping down. Obviously, the people of Alaska felt abandoned by her action and still hold a resentment, if you can believe the poll numbers.

#46, you are dead wrong. Anyone who actually listened to her resignation speech heard exactly why she resigned. She said she and Todd already had legal bills over $500,000. She said her administration had ground to a halt because most of their time was spent defending the bogus charges and complying with FOIA requests.

The problem was that the media spent it time trying to convince people that "there must be some other reason" for her to resign. The media all but ignored what she said, instead they hoped that some scandal would prove to be the reason.

Since you spend so much time here slamming Palin, I suppose you don´t really have any real interest in the truth anyway.

How about a little crow #48.

Directly from the transcript of her speech:

"Every one - all 15 of the ethics complaints have been dismissed. We´ve won! But it hasn´t been cheap - the State has wasted THOUSANDS of hours of YOUR time and shelled out some two million of YOUR dollars to respond to "opposition research" - that´s money NOT going to fund teachers or troopers - or safer roads. And this political absurdity, the "politics of personal destruction" ... Todd and I are looking at more than half a million dollars in legal bills in order to set the record straight. And what about the people who offer up these silly accusations? It doesn´t cost them a dime so they´re not going to stop draining public resources - spending other peoples´ money in their game."

"It´s pretty insane - my staff and I spend most of our day dealing with THIS instead of progressing our state now. I know I promised no more "politics as usual," but THIS isn´t what anyone had in mind for ALASKA."

Nothing Palin does will never get some the PDS posters to give her any credit. She could jump in the river and save their saggy old hides and they say she hurt them when she pulled them to safety.
I have no respect for posters who have no room for Palin´s efforts to help our country. In fact the way they have such low standards for their darling Bush´s and Roves and Boehners,et al...and such impossible standards for Palin tells me that they are not seriously at war to return our nation to being staunch Constitutionalists and small government supporters. I could care less what any PDS posters think about Palin because they are warped about her.

No, the "truth" is that she was bored and spoke openly about hating her job. That´s the case with many people, not so unusual, but fairly rare for a governor.

Presidential hopefuls Rand Paul and Jeb Bush got in a slight scuffle over immigration yesterday. Bush called illegal immigration “an act of love” committed by people wanting to support their families, adding that most of them are here illegally because they can’t get in legally. This ignited some Republican rage and Rand Paul got his chance to respond: “You know, I think he might have been more artful, maybe, in the way he presented this,” said Paul, a Kentucky Republican, said on ABC’s This Week. “But I don’t want to say, ‘oh, he’s terrible for saying this.’ If it were

Republicans are famously divided on immigration reform, but Democrats pretty much unanimously support it. There´s a reason for that.

There is a culture of sleaze in Washington that´s worse than ever. Too-big, all-powerful government not only cripples the freedoms of the regular people who have to live under it, it also creates a whole shadow infrastructure dedicated to working it to the advantage of the elite and the connected. Three recent stories illustrate the point: Matt Continetti´s piece about the divorce of lobbyists Tony and Heather Podesta shows how connected insiders can make out like bandits in Obama´s Washington. The Podestas have offered their vast and wealthy clients little in the way of objective value. Rather, they´ve gotten rich just

By now most people are familiar with the potentially deadly situation emerging at the Bundy ranch in Nevada. Right now, the back-story is not nearly as important as the immediate necessity to de-escalate this life-and liberty threatening situation, although it does play an important role and must be addressed. The fact that this situation could have been pulled from the script of the 1974 movie Chinatown or any of the Godfather movies is well known and must be exposed, but not before immediate action is taken to assure the preservation of life and liberty. The current critical nature of the crisis cannot

Two of Nevada’s top elected leaders are riding to the rescue of a rancher whose decades-long range war with the federal government has reached a boiling point in recent days. The federal Bureau of Land Management has surrounded the Clark County ranch of Cliven Bundy with armed officers, helicopters and four-wheel drive vehicles. Last week, they began seizing cattle found grazing on adjacent federal lands in violation of a law meant to protect an endangered desert tortoise. “No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans.”

Bundy Ranch, the Federal Government,

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The continuing battle between the establishment and antiestablishment forces within the Grand Old Party is getting bitter. Scott Reed, a chief political strategist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, quips that the antiestablishment Club for Growth has morphed into the “Club for Dopes.” Club for Growth spokesman Barney Keller charges that the head of a Washington-based pro-incumbent political group, the Main Street Republican Partnership, “may have eaten a lot paint chips as a kid.” Maybe that is what happens in any family feud. But it is the first time in recent years that the Republican intraparty battles have turned publicly

The quickest way for a commie a**hole to gain weepy fans is to die. This is something I’m willing to accept, as long as it happens regularly. But it’s no surprise that when someone truly awful dies, the cool break out in reverence. Which is what happened when Hugo Chávez croaked. On that day in March 2013, we saw a parade of misty-eyed celebrities and solemn left-wing hacks paying tribute to a dead guy. Out of the woodwork came a parade of Hugoslavians, tyrant-lovers who could overlook the heathen’s badness for the sake of coolness. See, someone can be truly evil.

On the day the House Oversight Committee held Lois Lerner in contempt, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said Congress should impeach Attorney General Eric Holder if he does not indict those like Lerner for their roles in the IRS´s targeting of conservative groups. In a Thursday appearance on Sean Hannity´s radio program, Cruz said Holder should be impeached for "defying Congress and the rule of law." He said Holder´s actions were not in the spirit of the Department of Justice, which Cruz said has "a bipartisan tradition of resisting partisan pressure and upholding the rule of law." Cruz cited examples of Holder´s

Sen. Mike Lee of Utah launched an “anti-cronyism” agenda Monday with a column in the National Review urging the Republican Party to advocate populist, free-market reforms over tax loopholes, government subsidies and federal bailouts. That kind of Republican party, he writes “could not only unify and excite conservatives, but appeal to hardworking families in the purple and blue communities that President [Barack] Obama’s special-interest favoritism is leaving behind.” Mr. Lee is scheduled to continue the rollout with television appearances, town halls, a speech at the Heritage Foundation on April 30, and several pieces of legislation.

Will the real Republican Establishment please stand up? In the four years since the Supreme Court struck down fundraising regulations that effectively gave the Democratic and Republican parties a monopoly on large-scale political activity, a collection of Tea Party-affiliated organizations has arisen in Washington that competes with the GOP for campaign contributors, money and influence -- and over what legislation to push and which candidates to nominate. The groups, including the Club for Growth, FreedomWorks and the Senate Conservatives Fund, have moved aggressively to kill legislation they oppose and oust incumbent Republicans they deem insufficiently conservative. Like the national Republican Party, which they

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
