Weekend At The OK Corral – UPDATED2

Good morning everyone!


Well it is debate weekend showdown.  We will find out if these candidates have what it takes to beat Mittens or if they are part of his coalition of stooges.  I know there are some internet rumors floating that both Perry and Santorum could be helping Mitt which may be why any attacks or criticisms dished either way are with soft gloves.  We will find out this weekend. If there was ever a time for Mitt to be called out for his record, it would be now.  Clearly Newt is not a stalking horse for Mitt, we will find out about the others.

If they are all really in it to win it, this is going to be a blood bath this weekend. I don’t mean with nasty, false personal attacks but there is plenty to attack Mitt on with regards to his record, his history of flip flops and lying to keep people busy.

I have a conference at our church this morning and then regular weekend stuff but I will be tuning in to the debates and don’t forget that Gov. Palin will also be on with Judge Jeanine tonight on Fox.  We will post the interview when it is available.

Friday news dump:

Yes, I hope it is Mitt’s weekend from hell.

While I like the letter Rubio sent Obama, I think he is just angling for VP.

This guy is aiming for VP too.

Not this guy, this military genius wants to be Sec. of Defense. He did say on Hannity that his endorsement will be “unconventional” and Hannity asked him if he would be endorsing someone not in the race right now. Cain said that was a possibility. I know many think it could be Sarah and maybe it is but I think it is likely Trump or someone else. Heck, it could be himself! I think he is just pimping it in way to make people think it is Sarah to get more attention.  BUT it would be pretty cool it if was.

I haven’t given up yet on this guy but my support has softened. Wouldn’t take much to reaffirm it though.

He is going to find this to be political suicide.

More vetting and his tax plan isn’t getting good reviews.

Well looky, looky what they found

Oh may! This is not going to play well with conservatives and Tea Partiers….

I just love Daniel Hannan!

What part of reduce spending does this guy not get?

Somebody’s listening to Gov. Palin’s advice…

Really, as if we didn’t know this? They will never put this guy on the stand, the defense is too worried about what he would say if the medication balanced him enough to stand trial.

here is some news out of Alaska…

This poll is NOT for strippers…

Ouch! but this has me curious. Why doesn’t Paul ever run attack ads against Romney? or have I missed them?

I find these tweets to be very interesting:

AndrewBreitbart AndrewBreitbart
Rhymes w Shmoosweek: Gingrich SuperPAC to launch NUKE R BOMB! Shock film lays blame for US de-industrialization at feet of fmr Bain CEO!

AndrewBreitbart AndrewBreitbart
Rhymes w Shmoosweek: Will soon-to-be-released ‘secret’ film expose Mitt’s glass jaw!

Now, if one were a super smart candidate they would see a crowded field of very flawed candidates and one VERY nasty Mittens and likely make the assumption that Mr. Nasty Mittens will play dirty and systematically eliminate the entire field of candidates except maybe Ron Paul. Then if said candidate knew this bombshell film was going to be released they might choose to just sit it out and wait for the bloodbath to be over. They would know that Mittens will be forced to exit the race mid-primary leaving the field with only significantly wounded candidates that have been fairly vetted and found to be extremely lacking in one way or the other. The entire GOP primary would need a do-over.  What on earth will the GOP do? My guess is this film might not only take Mittens out but also leave a nasty taste in voters mouths for any elite establishment type.   Hmmmmmm……..  who would be the torch bearer for reform?  Sounds like I’ll be going to the movies pretty soon.

UPDATE: I want to point out that this film is not about class warfare or anti-capitalism. This film is about what happens when you put someone devoid of morality, devoid of loyalty and hungry for money and power in charge.  It is perfectly acceptable to look at Romney’s private sector experience to decide what kind of leader he would be.  We need a job creator, not a job destroyer/exporter. I don’t want a President who has a track record of helping other countries by sending them our jobs.

Doug Brady at C4P has an excellent article showing how Romney’s actions at Bain will be used against him. He makes a great point that it isn’t whether the ads are 100% truthful, it is whether they are effective.  These ads/film will be VERY effective.

Here are two sneak peeks:

When Mitt Romney Came To Town

UPDATED – somebody had the videos pulled and the links are not working. So I replaced them with some video that does work.  Bwaaahhhhaaaaa!!!




Here is an article about one of the skeletons in Romney’s Bain closet.

This book looks interesting…

I bet Romney is proud of this endorsement!

Iowa winner could change… looks like a typo.

Stacy Drake has a great article on Hot Air vs Palin.

Canadian gets Palin…

I will show Palin’s interview with Judge Jeanine but I didn’t think Pirro’s questions were any better:


OK everyone, I’ll update this thread in the morning with more news after the Sunday debate.

Have a great weekend and do something good for others!



  • BostonBruin

    Good morning! Thanks for the videos on Romney/Bain. Perhaps this movie is the bombshell that Steve Bannon and Andrew Breitbart have been hinting at.

    Gosh, this will probably come out at the same time as CPAC. Hee, hee!

    • daisy_mae

      I’m loving that Boston!

    • Firelight

      Bannon is a speaker….

      • John Norton

        Its a shame Firelight that Bannon gave up on Sarah running 4 Pres. ,He sid so …(Grizzley Fest)… 

  • section9

    OH I LOVE THIS !!!!

    THIS is how you FIGHT!

    By the way, if Palin ever gets back in this race, THIS is the kind of stuff I want her to use against her opponents.

    Romney is a swine. So are his big money White Powder Grand Cayman Island Bank Account Bundler supporters.

    Hopefully, they will go down.

    • generictrainee

      Section , you wrote that conroy said he had inside info on palin running , when were link?

      • hrh40

        She can’t get back into something she was never in.

        • cookboy

          As someone who has been referred to as “a one man walking freak show”, I think she’s been in it on her terms since 9/3/08 or so. Of course I could be wrong.

          • John Norton

            No cookboy you are not… 

      • Whitney Pitcher

        I think when Governor Palin made her annoucement in October, Conroy tweeted that Palin and staff had a meeting in August to discuss a campaign. I think this was intended to dispel the idea that Palin never had intentions of running. This isn’t to say she made her decision then, but that it was definitely something on her radar.

    • John Norton

      My idea is that 4 the time being 9 ,Palin is using Santorum as an uncoshious surrogate …

  • Freempg

    Now that’s lighting a fire! Thanks Firelight.

  • daisy_mae

    I am no genius when it comes to big business but am really appreciative of what I’m learning about crony capitalism and how GREAT the need is for we the people to provide Governor Palin with the biggest damn broom we can provide to assist her with sweeping that corruption out of our nation’s capitol.  There is one phrase though about business that has stuck with me through the years.  It is when a business deal is truly good and decent both parties benefit. This video clip looks very promising to unveil the character, or lack thereof, of rino romney.  I’m gonna grab my seatbelt!  WHOO HOO!

  • KatieSilverSpring

    Good morning all.  While I am encouraged that Newt will not fall to Mitt, I still worry.  Even if Newt gets the nomination, and at this point, I am hoping he does, I worry about the vindictiveness of the RonPaul-ites.  This amount of carnage will only benefit Obama.  I am not comfortable with it.

    I am off to Baltimore to the In-laws today for an “end of the season” to-do, as they call it.  Lots of lib nephews so I may come back war-weary.  Weary but up for the debates which I may actually stay awake to watch.  Too bad dau has decided to go skiing in upstate NY after the Baltimore event.  I would like her to watch Ron Paul in action.  She said she will switch from independent to Republican just to vote for him in the primary.  But I don’t think she fully understands how off the wall, non-Libertarian he really is.  And, his followers are nuts.

    The CPAC offer is still on, as long as you aren’t a RonPaul-ite.  They have nearly ruined all events in the past.  If only they knew how effective Risperidone is.

    OK, I promise, that’s as negative as I get.

    • JLAdevelop

      Very kind invitation related to attending the CPAC event. I am considering traveling to the event and would enjoy getting together with other supporters of Gov. Palin. If I do make the trip I will post on this site and see if a meeting of supporters is on. 

      • John Norton

        Sarahs you betcha nation group will be there including my self its a meetup the day before like Indianola …Details forthcoming…

    • Firelight

      We will be back here to help you nurse your weary soul back to life!  I actually think Newt will weather this out. In all reality he should be below 8% but he isn’t.  I think he will come back and hold his own.

      I am trying to figure out how to get myself to CPAC.  If I can, you will have a very grateful house guest :)

      • John Norton

        Greyhound bus… 

    • LA as guest

      What a hugely generous offer!

      (And what could be better than wine and organic?)

    • KatieSilverSpring

      Dinner’s over.  Only one of the many nephews came close (but not directly) to a possible support of Obama .  You have no idea how wierd (wonderful) this is in blue Maryland.  I don’t know what to say, except (of course, with me there is always an except) maybe things are looking up?

      OK, guys, opposite the debates on Bravo is my absolute fav movie, Braveheart.  Although raised as totally Irish (I’m Dominican, Chickahominy, French, Scottish, Irish, English, one cousin thinks we are Basque – shut  up, your family is in this country long enough you can claim Maple tree roots!), I do have one line of direct descendant of Robert the Bruce which this movie makes me cringe for.  I have to learn how to fling a blade … I’m just saying.

      I am happy. Converts in the nephewhood!  who knew …

  • BostonBruin

    The full “When Mitt Romney Came to Town” video will be at this site soon

    • blackbird

      Thanks for the link BostonBruin.

  • blackbird

    Will be looking out for the film, thanks Firelight.

    Reuters: Special report: Romney’s steel skeleton in the Bain closet ~

    Morning all…Pietro Leatherchest here…..A bright, sunny 72 degrees here in the great desert Southwest…Az balanced their budget this summer and now they are fighting over the surplus revenue…anybody hear of a rainy day fund? Take care out there, its a rough world….HA

  • indemind

    Good morning barbarians…. From beautiful Carlsbad Ca.

    Firelight, awesome front page round-up … and the videos are very damaging to that Good Ole Boy Mitt …  Plastic Mitt with his Plastic Smile … (What a Phony)…

    anyway, feeling better with each passing day…. Here’s hoping every barbarian has a great weekend … Stay Cool, Stay Safe, ……….. God Bless

  • Michael

    Rick Santorum is a two-faced creep! To every Palin supporter don’t support him.

    • Firelight

      I remember reading this. I have never heard Santorum say that he admires or supports Gov. Palin (except when he stepped in it and had to apologize). He always says his wife is the one who just thinks she is great.

  • hrh40

    Terrific piece by Stacy Drake!

    And ever since HA had their recent opening for commenters, going there is like going to HuffPo or Daily Beast or Daily Caller.

    Really crappy commenters. IMO

    • Michael

      hrh40 are you on twitter? Tina Korbe is more of the same. 

      • hrh40




    • cookboy

      More of ’em anyway.

  • Pete Petretich

    OK, let’s extrapolate a bit:

    Sarah just said that the LSM and the Dems want Obama to run against Romney.

    Does that imply that the LSM and the Dems DON’T want Sarah to run against Obama?

  • Nancy6

    Still not a fan of any of these candidates.
    But, they provide gobs material for entertainment!:)

  • section9

    These faux conservatives should be horsewhipped.


  • kcnut

    Well folks sarah looked awesome and sounded awesome. Now if she enter then it will be super awesome.

    Originally posted this morning at C4P in response to a submission by Jasmine Velasco.

    Of all the men I have ever known, the man I most admire and respect had a
    sixth-grade education.  But those six years of formal study only
    whetted his appetite and became a springboard to a lifetime of
    learning.  Indeed, he was one of the brightest men I ever knew

    when I asked him why he only went thru the sixth grade, he responded,
    ‘Son, that’s all they offered back then.  When you finished the sixth
    grade, you were 13, considered a man and expected to begin making your
    own living.  Unless you were a rich man’s son and went to college, your
    formal education was over.’

    The reason this sounds so strange to you is because my father reached the age of manhood – 13 – in the year 1902.

    father taught me many things.  Among them:  1)  Words are cheap.  Watch
    what a man does, not what he says, and judge him accordingly.  2) 
    Common sense is a misnomer;  it’s not so common.  Use the term ‘horse
    sense’ instead;  oftentimes,  horses have better judgement than we
    humans.  3)  When something appears to good to be true, it generally
    is.  4)  Men can change, but they generally don’t.  5)  When the chips
    are down, men revert back to what they were – not what they wish you to
    believe they have become.

    In order for me to vote for Mitt
    Romney, I would have to disregard everything my father taught me and
    share your delusion that he is a changed man instead of my reality that
    this change of his is a little too convenient.

    In truth, Mr. Romney should copyright the phrase ‘flip-flop’. After all, he owns it, does he not?

    other thing my father taught me – ‘Two wrongs don’t make a right’.
    Obama was our first wrong; Mitt would be our second.

  • Pete Petretich

    It seems like some in the LSM are exploiting the fact that Gingrich and Santorum are both Catholics (i.e., opposed to contraception in principle).

    Under present circumstances why would they do this? They want to foment division among conservatives and serve up Romney on a plate for Obama to tear apart. This is so obvious, but it needs to be said more often.

    Thank you, Sarah, for showing us the way!

  • section9

    Yes, Firelight, the debate revealed that the opponents of Romney are all Weak Sauce.


    What a Dog’s Breakfast. Sarah is the only one who can rectify this.

    • Firelight

      LOL!   I typed in all caps because I really was that mad. That debate was a joke. The questions were stupid and the candidates were stupid enough to answer them and yet many of them turned Trump down for a debate.  It serves them right.

      • TENCOLE

        Mega dittos firelight. 

      • section9

        Yes, but since Romney and the ABC crew were on the same side, it worked out for them.

  • Pete Petretich

    My fellow Palinistas! Let’s always stay united, let’s use the means at our disposal!
    Let us never settle for less than the very best!

  • Bean Counter

    Mornin’ troops. Taking a mental health break while working. Up to my eyeballs in W-2’s and 1099’s, plus processing memberships for my artsy fartsy liberal infested arts organization client. I get paid with gov’t. arts grant money, so you have to be gratified that at least some arts funding is going to a good conservative. However, it’s actually a pretty OK thing as far as I’m concerned, re: staying consistent with my core principles, because a lot the funding for the state arts agency comes from the sale of vanity license plates rather than tax revenues. I can live with that.

    Anyway, had an interesting thing happen yesterday morning at the supermarket. Ran into former Sen. Bill Frist. He’s a great guy, a great doctor, but was a disappointing Senate Majority Leader, at least he disappointed me, as he turned into a real squishy rino. First time I met him was right after he was elected to the Senate at a big symphony fundraiser backstage grip and grin. I introduced myself and he spent at least 10 minutes talking issues with me, very engaged, very impressive. Kept asking my opinions on this and that. It was surprising when he was chosen to be the majority leader so soon after being elected. I wondered if it was because he could be manipulated by the establishment and it would appear that might have been the case. However, one thing I always did respect him for, was that he pledged, when elected, to only serve two terms then he would leave, and that’s exactly what he did. And, ha, my suspicions about his rino-ness were confirmed when I left the store and saw him get into a Nissan Leaf. Broke my heart was all that did.

    Didn’t watch any debates, didn’t want to. Couldn’t care less. I do, however, hope that little documentary lands a body blow to Romney.

    OK, back to the grind. Y’all play nice.

  • Nancy6

    Good morning P4A!
    I think Firelight is so good, it would be news if she had a bad roundup!:)
    It’s all excellence all the time with these roundups!

    • Firelight

      ha ha ha!

  • Nancy6

    What would you be doing this Sunday morning?
    Candidates: Watching the championship basketball game!
    Not basketball.
    Not championship.
    Pretty close though.

  • senator20526

    Morning all….Pietro Leatherchest here…(love that name). A rather windy and sunny Sunday here in the great desert Southwest, expected hight 74 degrees. Just back from church where we had an over-flow crowd…many new faces. Mrs. Senator and I had the pleasure of attending a banquet last night where I had a chance to visit with some of my old friends from across the state of Arizona. Its always nice to get out once in awhile. I hope everyone has a Blessed Sunday and stay out of the bushes.

  • BostonBruin

    Good afternoon! Ok, so the big take-away from Gov. Palin’s interview last night was that she started to put seeds of doubt into people’s minds with regard to Romney’s electability. She probably knows how damaging this Bain Capital video will be to his campaign against Obama.

    And what will people think of the fact that Todd got his wife a manual ice auger? Why not an electric one? Hmmmm ….

  • Crueladev

    Good Afternoon P4A Kids…

    Getting ready for My Lady Vols to take on Arkansas….
    SEC announces the “We Back Pat Foundation”…
    I fully support this effort!

    HA!!!  Mitten’s makes a STARTLING announcement in today’s debate…He is really Presidential Material…He acknowledged that “Massachusetts receives a lot of air from other states”…Yup!  He is so brilliant!  He is my new number one!

    These debates are just laughable at this point.  At several points during them..I just wanted one person to man-up and give a one finger salute to the whole BS affair and walk-off the stage.  He would have gotten my vote no matter who it would have been.

    You all have a Good Tebow Sunday.  ( I hope I can say that next week)….

    • hrh40

      Ahhh yes, Ella Grasso!!!

      I was 7 years old. She was a Democrat. But still very inspiring.

      Especially compared to the next 35 years worth of governors!

      And now we’re stuck with Obama’s MiniMe. Sigh.

  • Nancy6

    With these candidates in this debate on Meet The Depressed, surely the title pertains to the public.

  • Nancy6

    Mitt’s enemies: Conservative base.
    Sarah’s enemies: The Obama administration/LSM/GOP Elites.

    You are known by the enemies you keep. Or something.

    • OldPat

      A great big kernel of truth wrapped in humor – your stock in trade.  Thank you, Nancy.

  • Pete Petretich

    Why isn’t it completely obvious to everybody that the LSM and the Dems want to run Romney against Obama? THIS SEEMS LIKE THE MOST OBVIOUS THING IN THE WORLD AND THAT’S WHAT OWS HAS ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT!!!

    I’m beginning to think that anyone who props up Romney Loser is part of a conspiracy to get Obama re-elected.

  • Pete Petretich

    Bannon is talking to a guy from Gingrich’s Super PAC. Next they’re talking about the new Romney exposee film…

  • Nancy6

    Mile High Magic!!!!
    Woo-hoo BRONCOS!!!!

    • John Norton

       Tim Tebow put it right on the receivers #s while he was at a full run in overtime then right after Tim dropped to one knee and gave thanks to the almighty…Next wk Brady look out patriots…!

  • Bill589

    I’ve learned in life that I have to settle for less than I want with many things.  Life is not fair.
    But I’m still having a hard time even feigning any kind of satisfaction with the Sarah wannabes.

    I’m one of the 75% of GOP voters who don’t want the RINO/Establishment choice.
    IMO, Sarah is the only one that can unite the Republicans (the real ones)/TPMovement clans.
    And this is needed, not only to beat that RINO, but also Obama.

    I wish there was somebody else. Especially if Sarah really doesn’t want to do it. I wish principled, capable, constitution-loving leaders grew on trees – and we had to pick from among candidates that we admired. But leaders like that appear too rare.

    I just have little hope of beating Obama with any of the current candidates. All my hopefuls crumbled with minimal vetting and media attacks – nothing like the battles Sarah has fought and remained undefeated through.

    May God continue to bless these United States, and may the right person be elected president.

    • John Norton

      Bill there is …Next month all of us will converge on DC sarah will be there…Have Faith Calvary is coming…

  • section9

    What an extraordinary win for Light’s Broncos. An epic play in Overtime!

    I’ll be rooting for them next week as they head into Foxboro! As a Dolphin fan, I can do no other.

    I share Bill’s frustration: this is the wretched excuse for a political party that we are left with.

    I doubt that Palin will get in, but I pray that God steers her in that direction. It is all in His hands now. I can do no other.

    • John Norton

      I also will be waiting for the next game and expecting a very good game like the last one…
      Shes not missing this party .I understand your sceptism but im not seeing it the same way…

    • hrh40

      For the second time this season, I will root against my regional team in order to cheer for the principled underdogs! :)

      Earlier in the day, we have a 3-hour statewide tea party planning session celebrating the CT tea party’s third anniversary and charting the way forward.

      I’ll be pumped coming into the game, I’m sure!

  • John Norton

    Waiting for firelight to put up the new post so I can give a report on my bus trip fom ct.I had both Sarahs books tucked under my arm the whole time two, advertising them the whole time.the trip only cost me 201.$…Plus food…
