Romney vs. Palin

Yes, yes, yes, I know, we need to focus on 2010, blah, blah, blah. I get it. Humor me though for a second, I want to see where conservatives stand in 2012 right now.

I’ll make no secret of my love for Sarah Palin, I LOVE that she’s not tainted by the system. She’s a genuine conservative because that’s the way she lives her life. Plus, she’s someone whom all three branches of the conservative movement (fiscal, social, defense) like or at least have a respect for her because of what she endured from the media. The social conservative branch probably agrees with Romney but remains skeptical because of his support for abortion rights until late 2006 (right before he announced his presidential ambitions) and as much as I like Romney (and I do) I can’t help but shake his lack of authenticity. I’d probably trust Romney with the economy much more than I would trust Palin, but I just don’t know if I would trust Romney overall.

So put me in camp Palin for now, but we’ll have to see where the 2012 primaries lead us? Please reply “Romney” for Mitt Romney and “Palin” for Sarah Palin, leave any comments you would like.
