From the Boston Herald:
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama Republican governor candidate Robert Bentley has turned down an offered endorsement from former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, expected to be a candidate for the Republican nomination for president in 2012.
The Birmingham News reported that Bentley turned down the endorsement. A spokeswoman for Bentley, Rebekah Mason, said Friday that Bentley wanted to concentrate on the race for governor and did not want to give the impression that he was endorsing anyone in the 2012 presidential race.
Wow, just wow.
Of course, I don't blame Robert Bentley one bit. Think about it, much like Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid represent everything that is wrong with the democrat party, Mitt Romney represents everything that is wrong with the Republican Party.
Romney is a Big Government Statist, a squishy, finger in the wind, flip flopper, who will say anything and do anything to get elected, and then let you down at every opportunity.
Then there is RomneyCare, which is rapidly becoming a disaster of biblical proportions for Massachusetts, and served as the blueprint for ObamaCare. That's Mitt in the photo above, laughing it up with none other than Teddy Kennedy, as he signed this abomination into law.
You know, I'm constantly amused by the left wing loons, the lamestream media, and the GOP elite who try to convince us that Sarah Palin is toxic and we should all run away from her.
Fact is Sarah has endorsed winning candidates from coast to coast, from the reddest of red states to the bluest of blue. She draws huge crowds wherever she goes, even places like Boston and Minneapolis, not exactly the bastions of Conservatism.
Sarah has had candidates publicly lobby for her endorsement, only to be turned down, but she has never offered her endorsement to someone only to have it refused. No just the opposite, in fact. During the primaries, when the fields were crowded, candidates passed over by Sarah for someone else were often openly and loudly upset they weren't the chosen one.
I guess my point is Mitt Romney bills himself as a Conservative, and yet, he can't even get any love in a deep red state. On the other hand, Sarah Palin can walk right into the Belly of the Beast, the bluest of blue states, and be welcomed.
Sarah's crowed October event calender, seen below, shows her spending a lot of time in California, including Nancy Pelosi’s hometown, San Francisco..

Maybe Mitt should take a hint. We don't need any more squishy Republican Ruling Class elites, who blow with the wind. We're overstocked with them already. We need real leaders, leaders who are not afraid to get out there and fight. Leaders who aren't afraid to actually stand for something, and stand by their convictions.
Squishes, Statists, and Ruling Class elites need not apply.
