If that isn't the kiss of death for a Mitt Romney 2012 candidacy, I don't know what is. When I read this story yesterday, I had to do a double take, but it's all true. John "RINO" McCain will fund raise for Mitt Romney's "Free and Strong" America PAC
. I could be wrong in this, but I'm sensing an anti Sarah Palin motive behind it. Mitt Romney is obviously running again for the Republican nomination in 2012. Last year at CPAC, Romney claimed he was "suspending" his campaign in order to help heal the party and rally support around McCain. Mitt Romney gave a very good concession speech, and the CPAC crowd ate it up hook line and sinker. Mitt has been accused of being a "Johny come lately conservative". Before he ran for the Republican nomination, many of his views he now trumpets as conservative were very recently liberal. Does that sound familiar? It should sound familiar. John "Juan" McCain also became a "born again conservative" once he won the Republican nomination. It was beyond sickening having to listen to country club moderate Republicans telling conservatives that John McCain was one of us. That was the ultimate insult to the intelligence of true conservatives. It didn't matter in the end though, because McCain went down in flames. As for Sarah Palin, I don't believe that ol Johnny really is a fan of Sarah. If McCain could have gotten away with picking a person like Joe Liberman as his running mate, I have no doubt he would have. Trust me when I say this. McCain picked Sarah Palin out of necessity not out of desire
. The same way half the McCain campaign camp resented Sarah, I believe John felt and still does feel the same way. If Sarah Palin does run for the Republican nomination, her biggest opponent will be Mitt Romney. If John and Mitt are indeed teaming up in a preemptive strike against a possible Palin candidacy, their strategy is going be backfire. Most of McCain's support last year came from people who supported Sarah Palin and those who didn't want to vote for Barack Obama. I talked to a lot of people last year who voted for McCain, and none of them voted for McCain, because they liked him. He was nothing more then the "anyone but Obama" candidate. A possible Palin campaign would be very smart to file this fundraiser event way until the Republican Primaries.
