Prior to Governor Palin’s much anticipated speech at CPAC today, she sat down for a brief interview with CNN and the New York Times. She reiterated her preference for an extended nominating process so that the candidates can be vetted. She also called on Mitt Romney to explain his record to conservatives or face an enthusiasm gap if he’s the nominee.
Note by TPE: On this topic, I totally agree with the Governor:
“People who start screaming that a brokered convention is the worst thing that could happen to the G.O.P., they have an agenda,” Ms. Palin said in an interview. “They have their own personal or political reasons, their own candidate who they would like to see protected away from a brokered convention.”
Now, on the CNN end, on Romney’s “severely conservative” statement:
In an interview with CNN and The New York Times before her speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, Palin said she was confused by Romney’s declaration here on Friday that he was a “severely conservative Republican.”
“I wasn’t quite sure what the word ‘severely’ meant,” Palin said.
She said Romney and his two main rivals – Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich – should be given time to explain the flaws in their record until the Republican National Convention in August, when she said the nomination fight could ultimately be decided.
But Romney may have the hardest sale to make, she said, asking him to explain his “shifts in ideology” since he left the Massachusetts governorship.
Mitt Romney must be vetted on this issue. Vetted? Continue to be vetted? Yes, and by that I mean that I disagree with Rush Limbaugh and others on comments that Romney needs to be “pushed” to the right. If he feels it, he should not overstate it or emphasize to prove a point.
Governor Palin doesn’t have to prove it; just like Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich, they live it. I do believe that if Newt is elected as the candidate to beat Obama (now it’s a bit of a stretch) he will fix up the mess we’re in. Now it’s up to all four candidates to make their point on how they plan to reduce the deficit the United State has (Newt laid it out on his CPAC speech, Paul is quite vocal about it) but with Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney, people need to do more digging because it’s quite elaborate.

George Soros has too much time on his hands. He wants Benjamin Netanyahu gone, but as usual, in a way that his thumbprints are not all over the place, nor his money. Just like the Obama administration, transparency is key to how the flow of hatred towards the Jewish people and the goal to put radical Muslims in control of a vast region, with the fresh scent of Arab Spring.
Just a tidbit from Front Page Magazine (emphasis mine). There’s way more going on under the radar for people to care. This “Hobbit” seeks to put it out there to help protect and secure Israel-not only our only true ally in the Middle East-but as a reminder that G-d is with Israel, according to The Scriptures.
Netanyahu’s sharp exchange with Obama in May motivated even Democrats who weren’t in Soros’ vest pocket to find a way to force him out of office. It was no longer just fear of losing the Israeli left as their hand puppet – the American Jewish vote was in play. Replacing Netanyahu with a lefty eager to appease the terrorists would heal the split with Obama and Jewish voters.
The American and European left could provide the money and the strategy, but the Israeli left would have to do the heavy lifting to save the millions of dollars flowing their way from their foreign backers. On the Israeli side were left-wing veterans of Clinton’s successful effort to topple Netanyahu. Greenberg had been on that campaign and the plan was to do it all over again. [...]
The New Israel Fund is the mothership of Israeli left-wing NGOs and it is the most threatened by donor transparency. The NIF’s 25-million-dollar annual budget is used to fund even more radical groups, some of which call for boycotting or outright destroying the State of Israel. A recent WikiLeaks report quoted the local head of NIF, Hedva Radovanitz, as saying that she expected the country to disappear and be replaced by a more “democratic” Arab state.
Inside Israel there’s already a lot of discontent to “fire” so to speak, Netanyahu. Israel did this already in 1999 with a no-confidence vote; they have a parliamentary democracy. The left is frothing at the mouth to do this again, and replace Netanyahu. Their method: An inside Egyptian model of an “Arab Spring” inside Israel. If this image below does not freak you out, I don’t know what will.

I am very pleased when artists and movie stars decide to make a move that challenges the liberal current in Hollywood or in the music arena. Wyclef Jean has inspired millions, and his love for Haiti is immense.
He tried to run for President there, but lost the elections. Mr. Jean is a good man, not someone that loves to seek attention from the paparazzi and is not a junkie.
Here’s his opinion on Sarah Palin:
“I have to tell you this: I am a huge fan of Sarah Palin,” the former Fugee said. “Cause she’s rad. She’s shrewd. She’s cool. Because at the end of the day, I’m for the people, because this is the United States of America…this is what America’s really about. Anyone should have the right to say, ‘Look I can do the job and this is what qualifies me to do the job.’….Now my wife probably will debate and disagree with me.”
Seeming to sense a little bit of disbelief, he qualified his statement.
“I’m not saying she could be the next president, you know, but there’s something about her. Heavy debates in my house. Whenever I say Sarah Palin, people think I’m crazy, but I like her, I do. I can like whoever. This is America, right?”
