Mr. L in his latest video broadcast delineated how Gov. Palin benefits regardless if the GOP establishment invites her to speak at the RNC Convention or not. He believes that the party establishment will probably not invite her for fear of Romney and other “establishment darlings” being upstaged. He noted that most people voting “for” Romney are voting against Obama. “It’s not about Mitt,” he said, but Romney’s advisers and supporters are “too arrogant” and “too stupid” to see it.
The RNC certainly would not welcome the type of speeches that Gov. Palin has given in venues such as Indianola, CPAC, and Michigan. Mr. L said the RNC could either invite her and put her in a slot of low importance – which would be utterly disrespectful; or “write her speech for her – which would be a “rah, rah Mitt Romney speech” – and load it into a teleprompter.” Under either circumstance, Mr. L said Gov. Palin would be better off not being invited at all and handling things from her rented space in nearby Channelside Bay Plaza.
He said that the RNC and the Romney campaign are alienating both Gov. Palin and her supporters – who they need to help get Romney elected. Many Palinistas are disaffected over her not running and Romney becoming the nominee to begin with. The onus of unifying the party’s base does not lie with its various constituents – Palinistas among them – but with the Romney campaign.
Mr. L provided some history on conflicts the Romney family has had with conservatives within the Republican Party going all the way back to 1964. “Barry Goldwater and George Romney (Mitt’s father) never got along.” Mr. L spoke about hate letters back and forth between the two men. Mr. L’s sees the motivation of Romney running as being related to keeping a family legacy. Now, with him as the nominee, we have to put all that aside to get Obama out of office. “Romney is a means to an end,” Mr. L said, but he also said the reason we have a dead heat in polling between Obama and Romney is that “you have two hypocritical phonies running for office at the same time.”
If Gov. Palin speaks in a key spot and is permitted to speak in her own words, it’s a major win for her, Mr. L said, because she would top her 2008 speech (which was written by RNC operatives). “She’s a new, improved Sarah Palin; a totally different woman from 2008. Version 2.0,” he said. If the RNC does not invite her or gives her a bad slot, it solidifies her as an anti-establishment underdog, ginning up more support for her.
Mr. L said that the RNC chose as its next-in-liner, a loser who could have won against McCain, but was feckless.
Gov. Palin he said “galvanizes conservatives; helped the Tea Party; helped the resurgence in 2010; she speaks not to people or down on people but for people – the middle class, the people in small business-land, the average, ordinary, hard-working world that I believe both parties have abandoned. She even appealed to Latinos. That’s right. If you look, there’s an article out there – WikiLeaks of all places put out – that there are documents and emails that the McCain campaign staffers were talking about how Florida Latinos loved her….many of these guys on campaigns, these strategists don’t think with common sense.”
Gov. Palin has been vetted, and had all 25,000 of her gubernatorial – and many personal – emails exposed to the world, Mr. L said. Romney flushed his emails and had some 17 hard drives from his gubernatorial offices wiped. Gov. Palin may have made mistakes on the 2088 campaign trail, such was with Couric and Gibson, but Romney had a near meltdown with Fox’s Bret Baer – in friendly territory, so Gov. Palin certainly does not have a monopoly on campaign trail mistakes. Couric’s ratings have tanked and Gibson is in retirement and long forgotten about.
In his own synopsis of the video, Mr. L, wrote:
Is Mitt Romney and the RNC so stupid to make the mistake to not invite Sarah Palin to speak at this year’s convention? Judging from who Romney has in his campaign, is anyone surprised? An invite will allow her to top the RNC speech she gave four years ago. No invite will solidify her outsider, anti establishment status. It looks like Mitt Romney is following in his father’s footsteps in alienating the conservative wing of the GOP if this is true. Either way it goes, I’m fine with it. This and more!
