Sarah Palin Endorses Jeff Flake; No Word on Flake Seeing Mexico From His Backyard

Sarah Palin's Arizona love-fest continues.
Former Alaska Governor and Vice President runner-up Sarah Palin says Congressman Jeff Flake should be the next U.S. Senator from Arizona.

The gaffe-prone ex-governor -- who briefly wanted to "stand with our North Korean allies" and sparked concerns about the "Department of Law" -- says Flake's the kind of guy who can...(sigh)..."go rogue."

"Credited by many as the leading anti-earmark crusader in the House, Jeff has fought hard against pork barrel spending -- often times casting one of the few GOP 'no' votes on bloated spending measures," Palin says in an overly-prepared letter. "He's not afraid to 'go rogue' against his own party and its leadership; and even though he has sometimes suffered the consequences from GOP leaders for failing to toe the party line, yet he continues to fight for what is right."

Flake claims to be pleased with Palin's endorsement.

"I am very gratified to receive the support of Governor Palin today," his statement says. "Governor Palin is a passionate conservative who has inspired many in the cause to reform Washington."

At one point, it was rumored that Palin would try to take over the Senate seat herself, which is being vacated by Senator Jon Kyl.

The sometimes-Scottsdale resident's run for president, which never materialized, was also supposed to be based out of Arizona.

Palin's endorsement probably isn't a surprise, since her running mate in 2008 -- Senator John McCain -- recently endorsed Flake, as did Kyl.

As for Flake's primary opponent, Wil Cardon, his list of big-name endorsements currently includes Congressman Trent Franks and -- nope, that's it.

Meanwhile, a pair of candidates running for Congress have received the endorsements of people who were actually elected to the White House, as CD9 Republican Vernon Parker scored the endorsement of George H.W. Bush, and CD9 Democrat Andrei Cherny got the stamp of approval from Bill Clinton.

I mean illegal immirgants. California has been in the top three unemployment and Jeff Flake acts like a Calif Republican instead of one for Arizona.

That's stupid anti-Immigrants have low skills jobs and not could afford those houses. California still allows them to do as they please and has a higher unemployment than Arizona. I guess you want business to be vandalized as they were in Anaheim Ca where Hispanics legal and illegal supported a shot and killed gang member over the police.

I don't base my vote on who is endorsed by whom. But Andrei Cherny? Endorsed by Clinton? Seriously? He's a snake oil salesman. David Schapira for CD9.

Doesn't matter which "flake" wins the nomination. Dr Richard Carmona is a superior candidate to either. Combat veteran, Surgeon General, Professor of Medicine, Public Health expert, Deputy Sheriff/ SWAT Team leader. Vote Carmona.

Sara Palin is a quitter, who cares what she says?

 

Jeff Flake is a spinless flopping worm, had hed stood by his convictions on Immigration reform in 2007 , Arizona's Economy would still be strong, and Maricopa Cpounty would not have over a Half Million vacated Homes!

 

January 2008 = The start of the E-verify Law, the I.C.E. Deportation/Incarceration Programs.

 

January 2008 = The start of "The Great Recession."

 

This is no co-incidence.

 

The States that Deported/Starved away the Most Hard Working Immigrants now find themselves in Economic Disaster.

 

The mass vacated Homes Triggered the entire Foreclosure Crisis, it completely halted all private sector Construction/Growth, it cost millions of Americans their jobs.

 

Taxes have been raised, and Social Services have been gutted to keep in place the now approx: 20% Excess Total Government in the State of Arizona.

 

We are paying Police to pick up blown down Real Estate signs in largely vacated Neighborhoods!

 

The Idiot Politicians whose Anti-Immigrant Rant has crashed Arizona, and America all need to be thrown out of Office.

 

We should have more inteligent People running our Country.

 

The Hard Labor Immigrants gladly did for America was the very foundation of our Strong Economy, and it supported all other American jobs!

 

"America is great because it is good, when it ceases to be good, it ceases to be great."

Alex De Tocqueville

 

An 1840's French Historian that was far smarter than Palin, or Flake.

 

This Great Nation of Immigrants was Built on Fra Better Principles, and Values than to rip apart good Hard working Christian Parents from their legal Citizen Children/Families!

 

This is our I.C.E.'d Economy, I.C.E. "Put the Car in the Ditch!"

 

To: Good, and Brotherhood.

Sarah says, "Jeff has been a consistent leader against the government's out-of-control spending,". Who could support that? Best to support Wil Cardon, a wealthy investor who has pumped more than $7 million into the race. Let him buy the election!

Next Pearce will endorse Flake, and that should completely eliminate his chance to even get elected dog catcher!

With Palin's endorsement, Flake has the airhead vote locked up.

An endorsement from Palin is almost as bad as one from the Geriatric Goon of MCSO. Honestly, Jeff, you can do better.
