Sarah Palin 2012 vs Mitt Romney 2012? – Tensions between the Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney camps recently hit an all time high. The two 2012 presidential hopefuls have been busy creating controversy before they face off in the upcoming primary. An aide to Palin said that the Romney camp was not taking her very seriously.
“She’s not a serious human being,” a Romney adviser said regarding Palin. “If she’s standing up there in a debate and the answers are more than 15 seconds long, she’s in trouble.”
The Palin camp quickly responded to the attack, firing back at the Romney camp, saying that she was shocked that she had been attacked, and that she thought that they were all working toward a common goal.
“It shocks me that anyone would try to do that…You’d think we’d all be working together toward a common goal – that being 2010 – and that should be the focus right now. Those who try to claim the mantle of Reagan would be good to follow one of his most sacred tenets,” the Palin camp said in a statement.
Romney attempted to defuse the situation by reprimanding his adviser of Twitter, saying that Sarah Palin has “proven her smarts.” With the 2012 election already heating up, it’s going to be interesting to watch these two sides face off.
They have not gotten along well in recent months and things are only going to get worse the closer we get to the primaries.
