Mitt Romney Knows - Doesn't He Sarah?
Todd Palin has endorsed Newt Gingrich. So what? It kind of makes sense, right? What does that have to do with Babygate? Or with Mitt Romney? I think it’s very much tied to Babygate, by way of Mitt Romney.
We know that Babygate is a secret because otherwise,Todd and Sarah’s money and power as a political couple with a faux family image would dry up (more than it has since she admitted she wasn’t running for POTUS this year.). The Sarah needs to be in the spotlight, wants to keep Bristol in the spotlight for as long as there’s money in it, and Todd likes power.
Money was a theme in Going Rogue. Chuck Heath took Sally and the girls to Alaska because they paid school teachers so much more up there. Todd made an impression on Sarah’s parents because of his earning power. Sarah, too, was impressed that Todd was the only high school boy she knew who had made enough money to buy a car, truck and a snowmachine. (Ha! Did you really believe it was because she thought he was a Christian?). The love of money beats in the hearts of the Heath/Palin clan.
If the Palins think money is the measure of the man, it’s going against their nature to pick Gingrich over Romney. Mitt has much more of his own money than Newt. He accumulates (as opposed to earns) $57,000 a day. Yup, per day, and he hasn’t reported for work in 6 years. Newt, on the other hand, is plenty wealthy, but not Romney-style wealthy. If a Palin endorsement were based on personal wealth, and if they thought there were some way to get richer through linking with Romney, Romney would be their man. I have an idea why he isn’t.
The four remaining GOP contenders have “nice” families, too. Romney kids are perfect specimens of Morman family values (remember Donny and Marie?). Rick Santorum has the religious thing going even better than Sarah did, and with no malice intended, I want to add that he has a three year old with disabilities, too. How do you think Santorum would deal with the Todd’s promiscuity problem? I don’t think he’d want that endorsement. Ron Paul’s son is an elected US representative. Wow, runner up on DWTS can’t compete with that. So, Todd endorsed Newt.
Newt is a pretty good fit for the Palin family’s values. Newt is not married to the mother of his children. Not anymore. Newt isn’t likely to care where Trig came from or to question paternity. Newt is the Babygate Truther’s least likely ally. Newt could breathe fire into the air and incinerate the reporter who dared question the wild ride. He would, if it were good for Newt.
Newt has already shown a light on Sarah. He called her smart!! He even said there could be a place for Sarah Palin in a Gingrich administration. ‘What was that about? Newt’s too smart to think Sarah is smart. Cunning, but not smart. Todd’s power is tied to Sarah’s, so this works for him. Plus Newt and Todd have infidelity in common.
It’s Newt hands down even though Sarah is being Sarah and is playing “hard to get” in the endorsement game, just like her “will I run, or won’t I run” tease that she stretched into October. She’s backing Newt, though, and she’s got the knives out when she talks about Romney.
Sarah hates MITT ROMNEY because he KNOWS WHERE TRIG CAME FROM.
I’m going to try to convince you of that, so let’s talk about Mitt Romney and Sarah and what they know about each other. They have a history. Without Mitt, Sarah might not have ever become a governor (see “…Broke the Law Together and it Still Matters”). So why is she so mean to that man? Why did she take that big bus of hers up to Massachusetts and steal some of the attention when he announced his 2012 run? That was rude.
She didn’t do it for attention. There was enough attention for both of them. Neither was it competition for the candidacy - she knew she wasn’t going to run. We knew. Bristol knew. So why spoil things for Mitt? Because he knows about Babygate and that’s one big reason Sarah will never run against him.
Romney was the head of the Republican Governor’s Association that worked illegally with Sarah in 2006 to create expensive advertisement in the 11th hour that helped elect her. It’s not a stretch to think he kept an eye on that rising star the female rising star – a rare and needed GOP commodity.
Mitt Romney left office as Sarah took hers. Then, he concentrated on running for president. He didn’t take another job. He doesn’t need a job. Without attending as much as a meeting, he made more than Sarah and Todd’s 2007 income in less than four days . His wealth is beyond comprehension. And because of his wealth, he could devote all his time and resources to making himself the GOP candidate in 2008. He kept his ear to the political ground. Rumors of Sarah’s fake pregnancy were running around the Alaskan legislature. Mitt has eyes and ears working for him, I don’t find it credible to think he missed that little footnote. But he wouldn’t care. It didn’t have anything to do with his electability. At that time.
When McCain picked Palin instead of Romney as a VP running mate, don’t you think that stung? And don’t you think there was a good amount of talk among Mitt and his staff- talk about Palin being ill-equipped, and then about the firestorm of family crap the McCain campaign had to fight off? Of course, and Mitt probably laughed. Don’t you hate that derisive laugh?
When Sarah played her little game of pretending she was running, she left herself open to inspection. Not by media or voters, but by potential rivals. Mitt has always had his sights on the White House. He spent money finding out where this potential rivals for 2012 would be vulnerable. Looking into Sarah’s dirt would be an investment.
How long would it take to discover Babygate is Sarah’s biggest liability? Not long. Mitt knows. Mitt knows more than you or me. Maybe more than anyone who is on the outside looking in. He had motive. He had means. He knows. Would Mitt leave it alone because it’s sensitive, it’s distasteful? Are you kidding? Have you seen what he's run against Newt?
Look at the results of yesterday’s Florida primary. How did Mitt win so big? By spending $15 million to broadcast everything negative he chose to about his closest rival!
That’s $15 million to broadcast it. How much did it cost him to get that information in the first place? Money is no object. Romney paid for the research, and that must have cost millions in itself. The man has that kind of money and he’s had six years to fill his files with everything embarrassing about Newt. He had the money AND the time.
Mitt Romney has a file on Sarah Palin. You betcha! That file details Babygate. She knows she can’t hide from the investigation team that money can buy. Sarah knew last summer that Mitt had her cold. That’s why she took her “vacation bus” to his house. She probably told Piper to spit out the window as they went by.
