When it looked like Mitt Romney was going to run away with the South Carolina primary, and the nomination, Sarah Palin stepped up and said we’ll just see about that!
In an effort to make the primaries and the debates continue, Sarah suggested a different plan, and it worked. Like many of us, Sarah believes in tough competition and hard fought battles. Competition, strong competition, only makes everyone better. As she said: “steel sharpens steel.”
By continuing the fight, Sarah is forcing all of the candidates to be at their best. This is a good way to force the cream to rise to the top. Whomever wins the nomination will have earned it, and be in a better position to defeat Obama. This primary battle will expose all the warts, and steal the democrat’s thunder. It will make the eventually nominee much stronger.
Speaking with Megyn Kelly on Saturday night, Sarah said she was pleased with the outcome, but would not be endorsing any candidate yet. She also said Rick Santorum should fight on. We agree!
If there is one thing that saddens us, it’s that all of this just reinforces the fact that had Sarah run for president herself, she would have won it all hands down.
One thing I have to point out though. While she’s right, Newt Gingrich did fight against HillaryCare…. sorta…. in 2005 Newt teamed up with Hillary to push government mandated health care insurance. Newt has consistently pushed for government mandated health care insurance for almost a decade. His last big push was in May of 2011, when no one was paying attention. After that he’s laid low, hoping no one would notice that NewtCare is basically RomneyCare, except for the entire nation.
On to Florida!
