John McCain on Sarah Palin

by the Left Coast Rebel

Taking a civil tone, John McCain on John King on CNN. Remember some time back when McCain operatives were trashing the heck out of Palin? And just last week when McCain manager Schmidt predicted a ‘catastrophe’ if Sarah took the helm for the GOP presidential bid in 2012? Well it seems that McCain is reaching for a conciliatory tone now with her.

McCain admitting tensions, from CNN

“With a high-pressure situation, there’s always tensions that develop
within campaigns. And there were clearly tensions between Steve Schmidt and
people in the Palin camp.”


“When we selected or asked Sarah Palin to be my running mate, it energized our
party. We were ahead in the polls, until the stock market crashed. And she still
is a formidable force in the Republican Party.”

“I have great affection for her, look let’s let a thousand flowers bloom. Let’s come up with a winning combination the next time. … let’s all go through the process, rather than condemning anybody’s chances, and I’m happy to say we have some great people out there, and Sarah is one of them.”

Sarah is ‘one of them’, because she is a conservative. Frankly as well, in my opinion; the only reason that the McCain camp pulled ahead in the polls, (before the market meltdown), was because of the selection of Palin as VP. Before that, the entire run was a RINO stampede. After all and never forget, McCain made his name by actually trashing conservatives.

So it is interesting and puzzling to see him so seemingly conciliatory, I wonder the motive?

And remember as conservatives, let’s vet our candidates coming up, No RINOs in 2012.
