Palin Advises Romney: ‘Go Rogue’

Former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin advised Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan to "go rogue" in a statement to the conservative Weekly Standard published Saturday.

"With so much at stake in this election, both Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan should 'go rogue' and not hold back from telling the American people the true state of our economy and national security," Palin said in the statement. "They need to continue to find ways to break through the filter of the liberal media to communicate their message of reform."

Palin suggested that America needs to wake up to the troubles it faces, and that Romney and Ryan can help bring that about. "America desperately needs to have a 'come to Jesus' moment in discussing our big dysfunctional, disconnected, and debt-ridden federal government," Palin said.

Palin also lambasted President Obama over the national debt. "At the founding of our country, a great American patriot wrote, 'If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace,'" said Palin. "Obama's motto seems to be, 'Let the good times roll in my day. The kids can deal with the catastrophic bankruptcy in theirs.'

1. Do you think Mitt misread this advice and

went rouge instead? I'm thinking it might explain why his makeup was so wrong the other night on Spanish-language television.

3. Who would take advice from her? On anything?

And she can thank W. for running up the debt with help from the Repubs in congress Two biggest things that caused it were the tax cuts and the wars.

She's such an expert on winning elections, after all.

The lying, gaffes, and foreign policy "blunders". He's going "rogue" every time he OPENS HIS MOUTH...

5. Who cares what Palin thinks? If she thought she had any kind of chance she would have run

but she knows deep down that she is so toxic even the GOP wouldn't nominate her and that Obama would win a landslide against her.

You'd think she would get the message.

10. I think she means he should resign after two years, if he wins the election

I don't really know if that would work as a campaign promise -- but his campaign could be so effed up that it's worth a try

11. The Republican Party needs a "come back to Jesus" moment...

because they are so full of HATE, LIES, DECEIT, and HYPOCRISY! I've never seen a "party" so full of CONTEMPT for our President to the point where they are "willing" to let this Country go BANKRUPT and the American Citizens SUFFER just to make Obama a "one-term President". God is "no-where to be found" among them. Jesus is all about LOVE not "hate."

16. To be fair to Ms. Wasilla, I think she meant to quit and write a book.

Really, forget "public service". It's so yesterday. The RightWing Speaker's Bureau...that's where the real Moolah is !!!! And one must remember that her "child" and grandchild have a lot of peace in their paid-for Arizona chateau and 501c3 tax-free income. Girl's got a point.

17. This witch lost all political relevance

when she made that remark about Obama needing to grow a big stick. Completely uncalled for and I can only imagine the reaction if a Democrat made a similar remark. She's gone from being a politician to a right-wing entertainer.

"A great American patriot"...She doesn't know who said it, so she has to phrase it this way.

"come to Jesus"????? These wingnuts are constantly accusing President Obama of a secret plot to destroy the Constitution
when THAT'S ALL THE REPUBS ARE ABOUT!!! Separation of church and state, you ignorant fucks!

And also, I don't like her.

30. Palin is right -- Rmoney should go rogue. In debate #1, work the

phrase "blood libel" into one of your answers. In debate #2, inform the public that Pres. Obama does not have slave blood in his body. In debate #3, accuse Pres. Obama of incorporating "death panels" in ObamaCare. These will work -- they are real pot stirrers.

Seriously. This is HILARIOUS.

I think if I read any more news tonight, I might have a hard time breathing.

<Palin> GO ROGUE!
<Inigo Montoya> You keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means.

Isn't going rogue kind a like a lying, miscreant? Bush was rogue, Palin was rogue...what's so good about rogue
