Sarah Palin Approves of Condi Rice as VP Despite Her Disrespect for Human Life: VIDEO

Greta_palin

Matt Drudge "unlocked the insane asylum" of the media, according to Greta van Susteren, when he suggested yesterday that Condoleezza Rice was the top pick for Romney's running mate, and given who showed up to talk about it...

Says the unwisest VP pick in recent memory:

"I would certainly prefer a presidential and vice presidential candidate who had that respect for all innocent, precious, purposeful human life and show that respect via being a pro-life candidate. We need to remember though that it's not the vice president who would legislate abortion. That would be Congress's role, and, uh, we'll keep that in mind."

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. Condoleeza Rice as Romney's VP would be a gift for Obama. It's been more difficult to run on an anti-Bush platform now that 4 years have passed, but that would certainly reignite that message.

  3. Every time I read a quote from Sarah Palin my brain shifts into another reality.

  4. Good to see that she's finally learning of the roles of the various government players. A dollar short and a day late, but hey, this is progress.

  5. Palin would need 3 week's coaching just to recite the alphabet. Dear media: her 15 minutes are over and no one with a brain cares what she says.

  6. Jack, every time Sarah Palin speaks, her brain shifts into auto-mode and the rest of the world has to adjust.

    The fact that Fox gives her ANY airtime shows how vapid and twisted they are. Seriously, they can't get someone any smarter than this to comment on the story?

    Sad.

  9. "innocent, precious and purposeful human life --- a pro-life candidate" In other words, people like her (or what she thinks she is herself).
    That's why she didin't say respect all human life.

  10. @Amanda Not quite. The Veep does play a role in the legislative branch, as President of the Senate with the responsibility of casting tie-break votes. In fact that's really the only official duty the VP has, and Palin--the VP nominee in '08--still doesn't seem to know that.

  12. Bring on Condi! She was a principal architect and cheerleader for the Iraq War. Her many Pinocchio moments of lying on the Sunday talk show circuit are well archived and easily accessed.

  13. So when the Dem's are pro choice they're baby killers, when it's a Neo Con, well, it's actually congress that makes the laws.... A Mormon with magic underwear and a pro choice VP pick and she's just smiling like a loon. I have spoons with more intelligence than Palin.

  14. Greta's show must be the only one still inviting the Palin. I wonder if that's part of their contracts.

  15. Please ler it be Condi.

  16. Serious question: Is there not solid evidence that Condolezza Rice is a lesbian and would it not all be brought to light if Romney actually picked her as a running mate?

    I cannot believe that he would take such a risk, given the disaster that Palin was last time, and given how cautious they are trying to be this time.

    You would think they would have learned that having a woman on ticket does not do them any good, but I guess they are pretty hard-headed. But the risk of her being "outed"--which would destroy his viability as a candidate completely--tops even that consideration.

  17. They probably aren't looking much further than the fact that she's black and a female. SOoo progressive of repubs! How did that work out for McCain in '08?

  18. Rice did not get the VP nod from McCain due in part to rumors of her being a lesbian. She co-owns a "rental" property with another woman, but both deny living together or being gay. Rice is seldom, if ever, seen dating or in the company of men. Rice is not married and that is a big problem for her in politics. In business as well as politics, past a certain age you are expected to be married otherwise your "stability", sexual orientation and morals are open to question. There are very few executive or boardroom members who are not married (or at least divorced or widowed). Wives (or husbands) are considered part of the package when promotions are considered in the business world.

    Rice has a lot of baggage. In addition to the lesbian rumors, she, too, is a documented liar with plenty of video tapes and transcripts to prove that. She was also rumored (at the other sexual extreme) to be "in love" with GW and may have dallied with him sexually. In other words, she has a lot of sexual baggage too.

    Drudge is floating the Rice rumor in an attempt to create a distraction and turn attention away from Romney's Bain problem. The contradiction of the SEC filing versus Romney's stated departure date from Bain promise to severely damage, if not derail his campaign. It's feared that these new revelations are only the beginning and a big reason why Romney refuses, thus far, to release tax returns.

    Rice is just a ruse. She would not float with the neo-con, Tea Party crowd. I still say Portman will be the VP choice, if he's stupid enough to take it. Portman's self serving advantage would be, even if Romney/Portman lose the election, he can still keep his Senate seat.

  19. I love how the anti-Choice brigade respects all life, until that life grows up, ends up being LGBT, or liberal, or non-Christian, then they dont' care any more.

  20. As usual, Ms. Palin shows an incredible grasp of our laws and government. Abortion was never legislated by Congress but determined a right under the constitution in Roe v. Wade. Of course, she thought the Queen of England ruled the British Empire today (probably lost her history book after the first week of class).

    Condoleeza Rice? Uhmm...maybe I'm wrong but she remains unmarried. Don't worry, though, she is not lonely as she enjoys the company of many female friends.

  21. Understanding the separation of powers is quite challenging for someone who has no brain.

  22. When I saw the quote that Condi Rice had "disrespect for human life", my first thought was about all those killed in the wars that were a result of George Bush's foreign policy which she was the front person for. She was National Security Adviser at the time of the worst terrorist attack on US soil in history and Secretary of State at a time when America's respect abroad reached an all time low. When is someone going to figure out she is totally incompetent?

  23. I doubt the campaign will pick anyone who isn't married. A key photo from every convention is to have the two couples stand on the dais together for a "victory shot". You can't do that with three people, so the VP selection team would almost certainly veto anyone unmarried.

  24. Uh, yeah, right, Sarah.

    Um, can anybody here explain what "all innocent, precious, purposeful human life" means?

    The money quote:

    " We need to remember though that it's not the vice president who would legislate abortion. That would be Congress's role, and, uh, we'll keep that in mind."

    Actually, Sarah, I hope we DO keep that in mind. The November election ain't just about the Presidency. It's about Congress, too.

    Imagine a Republican president and a Republican-controlled House and Senate.

    Now, imagine all the legislation a Republican-controlled House and Senate might pass that a President Romney would willingly sign into law.

    Think about it. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

  25. I'm still trying to figure out "rumors that Condi was in love with GW"… what was that?

    I don't think that Neo-Con-di would even want the job, and I am sure that Romney has not considered this, after the McCain-Palin fiasco (odd how this word doesn't even BEGIN to describe that event…)
