Romney Supporters Step Up Attacks On....Palin! Are They Mad? (Yes)


I wrote a recent article showing that the Romney campaign team have hired an inveterate Palin basher to front their campaign AT THIS LINK. The post quoted a mass conservative Palin supporting site "Conservatives4Palin" which, to say the least, was not happy with Romney, for that action and for his being perceived as a Palin underminer himself during the primaries.



It is not only the strongly Palin supporters who are expressing, to say the least, disquiet about Romney's campaign against President Obama, major Republican figures are openly advising that Romney is in trouble.
Here is the mass circulation "Right Scoop" which has a video link AT THIS LINK



"
Romney is getting hammered as of late by talking heads on the Right because of his poor messaging and his inability to gain traction with voters. This morning on Fox News Bill Kristol hammered him even more by saying that even in a bad economy like this one he doesn’t think Romney can beat Obama with such bad poll numbers indicating that only 27% of voters believe he has a clear plan to fix the economy."




So the answer to Romney's problems are to hire someone who has attacked one of the most popular conservatives in the GOP, whose endorsed candidates have won 6 straight elections recently? The way forward for Romney supporters is to set up a Facebook site to mount an outright attack on Palin-are they (and the people who hired the Palin basher Kevin Madden) nuts, as Mark America states in his article (reproduced by Dr. Fay at Sarah Palin information Blog)? The answer is simply, yes. Good luck with winning an election by alienating your base Team Romney. NB to see the "Kooky" Romney people you have to sign in to Facebook but Dr.Fay and Mark America have some examples of their idiocy if you can't.


Kooky Facebook Group of Romney Supporters Dreams Up Palin Conspiracy Theory
Posted by Dr. Fay on July 8, 2012
Mark America has uncovered a Facebook group comprised of Romney supporters who are flipping out over an imaginary conspiracy by Governor Palin:
Them’s Some Kooky Sheep…
I must admit to having read some bizarre conspiracy theories about Sarah Palin, because in seeing what these nuts write, one gets a sense of just how thoroughly out of touch some people have become.  For far too many rank-and-file Republicans, it’s all a cult of personality.  Few are concerned about fundamental principles, to such an extent that they are unable to linger over even the most obvious facts that might stand in opposition to their odd-ball theories.  I have been sent a link to a group of such odd-balls on Facebook, where one may find the most obtuse concoction of cobbled-together propositions embraced by psychological delinquents I’ve seen since the anti-Palin bloggers I have covered in the past.  It’s a veritable nexus of dumb, and it seems to be composed of Romney supporters who seem to believe Sarah Palin is an evil genius, setting up for a 2016 Presidential run in which she expects to face Hillary Clinton in what these brain-addled doorstops term a “mud-wrestling match.”  It would be funny if it weren’t for the fact that they have nearly one-hundred members.
This means there many more deluded, psychologically broken people in Romney’s camp than one might otherwise expect.  Their basic theory?  Sarah Palin is trying to undermine Mitt Romney in 2012 so she can run in 2016, and she’s being aided in that venture by none other than Rupert Murdoch.  Yes, there are certifiable mad-caps in the GOP, too.
Before any of the Palinistas reading this get too excited, I’d like you to have a sample of the intellectual rigor of the people who are positing this theory.
[...]
They weren’t satisfied to go after the Tea Party, as they attack Mark Levin for his support of Sarah Palin, and generally regard Palinistas as brain-dead zombies.  Yes, they are leaping to the defense of Mitt Romney from the she-devil Sarah Palin, who they will tell you is a socialist.  That’s right, for these folk, Sarah Palin is a socialist.  Try not to soil your computer screen with spewed coffee as you laugh at these flakes.  I promise, you will read their ‘critiques’ of Governor Palin as very nearly a parody of leftist critiques, and I think this demonstrates my point from earlier Saturday.  If they had been mere Romney-bots, we might not have spotted the fact that these are full-bore kooks every bit as bad as any on the left.  It’s refreshing to have one’s assertions born out within the space of an afternoon.
Editor’s Note: While it is clear that these people claim to be Romney supporters, it is certain they aren’t doing this with the blessing or endorsement of the Romney Campaign.  Then again, he couldn’t tell the SuperPacs what to do when they were bashing Newt Gingrich, either. (Wink Wink) They could also be Obama-shills, attempting to stir up trouble between the Palinistas and Romney-bots, but at least on the surface, these appear to be genuinely nutty Romney supporters.  Go figure.
