Anonymous GOP Sources: 'Stop Sarah Palin'

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

Politico put out a Palin piece highlighting more...you guessed it...anonymous sources speaking negatively about Governor Palin. This time the comments are attributed to the establishment Republicans and 2012 hopefuls who supposedly are committed to one cause: "Stop Sarah Palin."

Politico reports (emphasis added):
Top Republicans in Washington and in the national GOP establishment say the 2010 campaign highlighted an urgent task that they will begin in earnest as soon as the elections are over: Stop Sarah Palin.

Interviews with advisers to the main 2012 presidential contenders and with other veteran Republican operatives make clear they see themselves on a common, if uncoordinated, mission of halting the momentum and credibility Palin gained with conservative activists by plunging so aggressively into this year’s midterm campaigns.


"There is a determined, focused establishment effort … to find a candidate we can coalesce around who can beat Sarah Palin," said one prominent and longtime Washington Republican. "We believe she could get the nomination, but Barack Obama would crush her."

This sentiment was a nearly constant refrain in POLITICO interviews with top advisers to the candidates most frequently mentioned as running in 2012 and a diverse assortment of other top GOP officials.


Top Republicans, from presidential hopefuls Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty to highly influential advisers such as Karl Rove and Ed Gillespie, are said to be concerned she will run, and could win, according to the officials.

A Palin adviser declined to comment.

Shortly after the article was posted, Palin went on Fox News, where she is a paid commentator, to criticize POLITICO and any unnamed critics.

"[T]hese are the brave people who want to lead the nation and run the world. But they're not brave enough to put their name in an article," she told Greta Van Susteren. "I learned back in the day that who, what, when, where, why of journalism. You report that facts; you let other people decide what their opinion is going to be. So having unnamed sources in an article like this is very, very, disappointing, you know. And it doesn't do anybody any good. It doesn't educate anybody. … I'm getting used to it though."

I agree with the Governor. These are the same people who want to run the country and tackle national security, yet they hide their identities out of fear. Pitiful!

Nearly all of these interviewees insisted on keeping their views on background, fearing the wrath of conservative grass-roots activists who are enthralled with the former Alaska governor and who have made plain that the establishment’s disdain for Palin and her devotees is mutually reciprocated.

The truth is they're scared to death that Governor Palin will do what she did in Alaska throughout her political career: destroy the good old boys network, expose their corruption, and whip their tails in elections. This all just goes to show that the "anonymous sources" who think they, not she, are ready to lead the nation, clearly are not. As common sense people have been saying since November of 2008: "Run, Sarah, Run."
