McCain Leaves Palin Out of 2008 Leftover Money

McCainPalin McCain Leaves Palin Out of 2008 Leftover Money
Over $1.3 million in left funds from the 2008 presidential campaign were given to Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in February and March and none to former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. The McCain-Palin Compliance Funds Inc. reported today it transferred $1,374,536 to the Friends of John McCain, the Senate campaign committee for Sen. John McCain. The McCain-Palin Compliance Fund had previously transferred $8,647,905 to McCain’s Senate committee in 2010.

    She’s not going to like that.

    • Pretoriana

      Nope. lol!

  • Freempg

    Thanks for nothing, McCain. Without Sarah Palin campaigning for you in 2010 we would have been rid of you. You were one of her rare mistakes when supporting candidates from 2009-12.

    And now look at you, you’ve doubled-down in RINOville as expected. Rejoined the merry band of the enemy within seated across the aisle and against us hobbits, wacky-birds, grassroots or what the H ever you call those who elected you.

    I’m sure Palin felt some type of allegiance. I suppose most of us would given the circumstance. Too bad. You got away with one, Johnny. But rest assured, there are millions of us out here that know full well what you’ve become.

    Dumb move Johnny,

  • MerleMorrigan

    this is gonna get her riled. . .

  • sodakhic

    At least you could do would be to pay her $50,000 vetting fee. I voted for McCain/Palin because of Palin.

    • nyc_nystate

      wouldn’t that have come out of Ms. Palin’s own campaign fund?

    • BlueJoubert

      Anybody who paid $50 grand for the vet they did on Palin got taken big time. You know what they say about a fool and his money . . .

    OMG! What a hoot! Why does that half term loon deserve anything?

    • LeftThePubsDuetaPalin

      Maybe McCain was halfway to giving her some money and then quit.

    • Founders1791

      OMG! What a half-wit comment from the low information and low integrity obama peanut gallery

      • BlueJoubert

        It’s funny to me how once we libs identified you folks as ‘low information’ and ‘ill informed’, you have tried to take those descriptives from us and call us the same. Sorry, but it doesn’t work, because the least uneducated of us is still a rethuglicans worse nightmare: a Democrat with the facts. And the middle of the electorate knows it.

  • CVBeethoven

    She isn’t running for anything, and therefore wouldn’t have a campaign to distribute funds to… what is McCain supposed to do?

    • Founders1791

      Neither is John McCain, since he announced his retirement at the end of his current term.

      The fact is any current or former candidate that maintains a political action committee is still in the game until that organization has been dissolved.

      Governor Palin, and her SarahPAC, have been in the fight without pause in every electoral contest since 2008.

      Her influence is demonstrable in the results of the 112th and 113th Congressional cycles where her ‘actions’ now speak loudest and cause more fear in establishment deadwood (Rinos) than since the 1994 Republican Revolution was orchestrated by Newt Gingrich and Tom Delay

      • xgoper

            you remember 2010 dontcha?

            when you lefties got creamed, right left and center by Tea Party America, led by Madame Steel Spine? When Tea Partier America SEIZED the deep blue, Big Labor powerhouse proggy State of WISCONSIN? When big lefty Senator Feingold got K-O-ed?

          • exodus2011

            nah – I always knew that the RINO Obama-lite ticket wouldn’t bring Conservatives in big numbers to the Polls – 2-3 miilion LESS voters on our side than in 2008 turned up, which shows you how woeful that ticket was

            Now that the RINO GOPe/Rove have been thoroughly discredited with the dominant Conservative Electorate we can get on with business ….

            let’s see how many more Ted Cruz’s we can find out there ,.. YEAH

            Look at what Conservative America did under the leadership of Palin and the Tea Party (with Steele/RNC fully on board), during 2010 Midterms —> swathe of new Conservative Governors, Conservative Landslide in HOR and huge gains in Senate. This was with the hated Obamacare recently rammed through …

            Contrast 2012, led by Rove and the RINO GOP Establishment = EPIC FAIL … their Senate Candidates going down … their RINO ‘obama-lite’ ticket crashing and burning … against a known marxist …

            the hated Obamacare was not even a tabled issue … which had to happen because Romneycare was the father of Obamacare

            Conservative America now understands how bad the leadership in the GOPe really is …

            The scene is set for 2010 on STEROIDS now, with TRUSTED Leadership operating via new and social Media

            All those Conservatives who sat sidelined watching the 2012 debacle will be ACTIVATED once the Real Deal engages in high gear …. 2010 will appear as ‘low gear’ in comparison …… especially so as Obamacare advancing is more and more seen as a DEBACLE

        The only way McCain will leave the Capital is feet first. His ego will never allow him to be off the Sunday talk show circuit. He cares about being on TeeVee, not governing. If his mug is out of the spotlight he will shrivel up like the old prune he is and be blown away by a slight wind.

        You do realize that if Palin quit backing loons the GOP would have won the senate in 2010 and again in 2012. Most likely democrats will keep control for years now thanks to the Alaskan dimwit!

        • hrh40

          Karl Rove, is that you?

          NONE of the GOP establishment’s candidates won – in either 2010 or 2012.

          The ONLY Senate seats that the GOP picked up in 2012 were the grassroots candidates backed by Sarah Palin. Cruz, Flake, and Fischer.

          • David Golden

            um, Cruz was not a pick up…he took the seat of a retiring Republican in TX as did Flake in AZ….any R would have won this time in Nebraska, the Ds have no good candidates and recycling Kerrey was a flop…now, perhaps we can talk about Delaware and Nevada in 2010 and Missouri and Indiana in 2012….

          • Caribou “FIRED” Barbie™

            Talk about COLLECTIVISM. See4Pee is all about collectivism. No debates, no discussions. Just log in and post “I stand with Sarah” every time one of her paid minions toss up fresh meat (new article).

            Good God, they don’t even know what causes to support or which politicians to endorse until Sarah throws out a tweet.

            Undoubtedly, the most mindless group of lemmings I’ve ever witnessed.

            Remember when Sarah duped them and announced on Levin that she decided NOT to run in 2012? The handful of cult members who questioned that decision (or were disappointed) were quickly ousted from the group.

            COLLECTIVISM.

            The hole in your theory is that all of American knows how horrible the GOP is now, and Dems who sat out 2010 will never sit out 2014. And I really don’t think the GOP ‘sat out’ 2012, do you? The ginned up hatred of Obama got them behind the tax-evader and the liar. But nice scenario.

          • exodus2011

            actually sal – 2-3 million who went to polls in 08 to vote AGAINST your hero the Zero, didn’t turn up to vote for R/R (= Obama-lite) … and that’s after 4 years of revealing him as a marxist! (rather than just ‘suspecting’ it in 08)

            which really indicates how woeful the GOP Establishment ticket was …

            you lefties, the GOP Establishment and me (and Team Palin, Cruz)… we all know what is needed to bring the conservative electorate RAGING to the Polls … maximising the turnout …. and that is The Real Deal on the ticket (Reagan was the last one to do it)

            Cruz was an anti-establishment candidate that came out of nowhere to defeat the Bush/hack chosen replacement for Hutchinson. Watch the video I posted. He gives full credit for his victory to Palin.

            Palin endorsed and campaigned for Sarah Steelman in Missouri who would have wiped the floor with McCaskill. Get over your Aikin obsession, that was Huckabee’s boy.

            Palin never endorsed Sharron Angle in Nevada in the primaries. Angle would have won the general had Reid not stolen it. As a resident of NV I know this like the back of my hand.

            Delaware was a warning shot at the GOPe, that we aren’t going to take their RINO trash anymore, and if we need to prove it by primarying their hand-picked Democrat lites, we will. No Republican would have won in DE.

            I’m not a fan of Flake’s but so what. He won. He’s not Democrat. Good enough for me.

            Lugar in Indiana through a hissy fit and failed to support Mourdock, who shot himself in the foot on top of it.

            Any other questions?

        Madame Steel Spine had a huge influence on the GOP Primaries in 2010 with a > 70% endorsement rate

        The WA Post were so startled that they actually began a regular interactive online called ‘Palin Endorsement Tracker’ … (interesting that no other GOP Leader was scrutinised thusly, ain’t it? **__** … find it online Lefty, it’s likely still available)

        anyway – the final outcome was a Conservative Landslide in the HOR and HUGE gains in the Senate – with several ole RINO dogs being ousted (YEAH)

        expect *2010 on STEROIDS* this 2014 cycle after Rove/Ruling Class GOPE mostly RINO Candidates got CLOBBERED in 2012 … ***Rove = EPIC FAIL***

            Palin’s key people got through though – 80% endorsement success in Senate races

            2014 will be dominated by Palin/Tea Party

            Primary season will be them V. GOP Establishment – before creaming the Lefties in the General

            GAME ON RINOs/Lefties!

          • exodus2011

            what do you find hard to credit barb? that 2014 will be a repeat of what happened in 2010, except this time ON STEROIDS, because Rove/GOP Establishment have been so EXPOSED in 2012 as RINO LOSERS?

            It won’t and you know it. That’s just it. You’re not here to hear and feel the people. There are NO TEA PARTY RALLIES like they were in 2010.

            My prediction. Nothing changes. The G0P will lose 3 seats in the House and gain 2 seats in the Senate.

            Then why post to me, creep.
            Go back to the Pee Pond.

            What!? No money to SarahGriftopia? What the heck?

          • exodus2011

            well Barb – if Madame Steel Spine engages for the 2014 cycle just as she engaged for the 2010 cycle, why should it not bring the same results?

            you will see the Tea Party Express doing tours all over America … fear not (we have only just begun 2013 … the Candidates will be found and vetted this year and then the Campaigning will cut loose in 2014, most likely)

            What should stop her?

            HA! … nothing on the left is likely to stop her when and where she chooses to engage, that was demonstrated clearly in 2011 in WI … that’s *blue* WI barb … remember ole Kloppy and you Lefties trying to stop Judge Prosser’s election? Remember all that Labor money being pumped into WI to take him down?

            and remember that Sarah Palin tweet on the Friday before the election on Tuesday, calling for help?

            The rest is history – the $ flowed in to WI to counter the lefty trash in those commercials and ole Kloppy went down

            1 tweet from Sarah Palin was enuf to energise Tea Partiers nationwide and defeat BIG LABOR in blue WI

            HA!

            prepare for DEFEAT Lefties and RINOs …. Conservative America had next to nothing to get excited about in 2012 (just the Cruz Missile and a few others) …but THIS TIME ….. bye bye RINOs and bye bye Lefties

            #Be Clingers ———-> #AmericaRISING

            (btw, you know how important that election of Judge Prosser was don’t you …. we all knew Big Labor would try to defeat the Conservative reforms by Gov Walker in the Courts, and Kloppy the Lefty had to be stopped

            then after she went down, Walker/Kleefisch defeated their RECALLS, with MORE VOTES than they got in 2010! LOL …. just think of all that Lefty money being wasted on all that Fraud …. LOL x 100 **__**)

            Don’t forget to catch coverage of, and reports about Madame Steel Spine and her family ‘walking with Gov Brewer against child abuse’ in AZ this Saturday

          • Sally

            Oh, yeah, that was priceless. A bored 5 (6) year old in a stroller instead of walking a whole mile. Sarah grinning and shaking hands with the rubes in AZ. Why didn’t Trig have sun glasses on in the AZ sun? Why was a woman who hasn’t given a dime to cuases even there? Oh yeah. Brewer wanted press time, so she invited the Queen of the News Bite along. And I didn’t see much ‘family’ there. Just Sarah and a couple of her own abused props. At least Sarah wasn’t floating over curbs this time.

          • exodus2011

            LOL … boy oh boy – are you guys desperate to stop Madame Steel Spine or what? **__**

            you forget the new and social media network that has been working and growing for nigh on 4 years now to spread the truth about the Palin family ….

            which is why a tweet and/or FB post has such an awesome explosive effect, and why thousands flock to see her in public (and why the lefty/rino media chase her bus! LOL)

            social media know all about her family, and her trip to Haiti with Rev Franklin Graham plus other efforts to back charitable causes (don’t rely on what comes though your old media gatekeepers sal **__**)

            look at how Big Mama Grizzly took over at CPAC! …she has 254K views of her speech now and the tally is still growing – (this is 5 X as many as the next speaker Dr Carson!)

            she has just given a strong pro-life speech on Terri’s Day in PA, will be speaking at another big pro-life event in southern NV this week, and both her and Cruz are keynoting the NRA Leadership forum in Houston on May 3rd …. (tickets only $10)

            can you say SOLD OUT?

            can you say PACKED to the gunnels?

            this will be HUGE via both new and social media whether the oldies *open the gate* for it or not

            HA!

            #BeClingers ——————-> #AmericaRISING

            **__**

            (How is it that interest in Gov Palin remains so monstrously high, and huge crowds turn out to see her whenever the opportunity arises, when you folks and the oldie media constantly lie, smear and distort her image sal? ….. that tells me the truth is getting through DESPITE your efforts! YEAH)

          • demsRDUMB

            Whine much Axis Sally (look her up)! Get a clue!

          • Sally

            what wil stop her? How about truth? The woman doesn’t even write her own posts. Her PAC spends next to nothing on candidates and everything on her. If she ever tried to run again, her husband’s illegal activities will be exposed, plus her PAC would be under FEC rules. So keep dreaming. The Tea Party has ruined this country, and we will not let them take us down.

          • exodus2011

            aaah … but you see Sal, the truth is getting out via social and new media – DESPITE the propaganda, lies, smears, and distortions being peddled furiously by you and your pals, plus the dying Old media gatekeepers … (who are less trusted as each day goes by, btw)

            Look at the amazing outcome on the gun control vote! after 4 months of your Zero campaigning 24/7 exploiting the deaths of the sandyhook children, trotting out the grieving parents …. old media giving the American Public wall to wall anti-gun propaganda …and STILL you couldn’t get 60 Senators to back the start of the pathway to a national gun registry!

            wow …. I would have to say that the new and social media are taking over sal …. what will you folks in LeftyVille and RINO-ville do now?

    For those of use who have lived and witnessed this man’s political career since 1983, there has always been the understanding he simply never stood for all the principles of the Constitution and respect for all the Citizens whom it protects .

    He has been part and parcel to every bad decision that has passed Congress whereby our liberties and pursuits of happiness have been restricted or outright removed from the founders intent. He has been complicit in every budget passed that grew the debt from $1.5 trillion when he arrived in 1983 to the $20 trillion when he retires in 2016. He is of a narrow mind and even smaller stature and has legislated as an opportunist.

    There is only one decision for which he will be remembered for in a positive light that will long outlive his failed legislative legacy: Governor Sarah Palin

    The comments here are uproariously funny. I honestly can’t believe so many of you clowns still think that she’s anything more than an airheaded grifter. I don’t blame McCain in the least – to be honest, if he had chosen a better running mate, I more than likely would have voted for him. But the first time Sarah opened her mouth, and I heard her speak, that was it. No way was I going to cast a vote that would put that lightweight a heartbeat away from the presidency. However, just to feed your lunacy, I offer for your delight & pleasure the ideal Democratic dream ticket –

      Yet another self important, vacuous, and pompous bit of prose from an unwanted transplant to the sunshine state.

      Failures like John McCain & Mitt Romney have always displayed deep character flaws that expose themselves to the praise of liberals in public but the knives of scorn at the ballot box.

      Since people like you have zero influence on strong willed women like Governor Palin you have nothing but the ad hominem left to fuel your narcissistic personality disorder.

    we’ll see if John McCain ‘leads’ on this and does the right thing

    really mac – if you don’t, you will go down in people’s estimation even further

    after you named Sarah Palin to the ticket in 2008, $$$$ flooded in to your weak campaign

    how much of that was solely due to your Real Deal Conservative running mate, who at least made the 2008 campaign against all odds into a FIGHT? (and caused enough panic to initiate the economic meltdown, with your predictable response, and so stop the Ticket)

    UNWORTHY Mac

    at this point your political legacy is solely connected to bringing “Reagan in a Skirt” onto the national stage …… don’t ERODE this REDEEMING aspect of your career

      Thanks to the low information voters like YOU that’s what we got!

  • http://twitter.com/PoliticsNxtDoor PoliticianNextDoor

    I think its safe to say, regardless of your politics, McCain raised as much as he did for two reasons:

    1. Sarah Palin (and)
    2. The “lipstick on a pig” comment (which was made by Sarah Palin)

    Needless to say, a financial vote of confidence would have been so much better from his campaign coffers several election cycles ago. The electorate has moved on, this is fodder.
