Gov. Palin stands apart from the pack on negotiations

As the clock counted down to the deadline to avoid a government shutdown Friday night, Sarah Palin, via Twitter, encouraged Republican Congressional leaders to stand firm, while at least two of her potential rivals for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination seemed to argue for caving on conservative principles to cut a quick deal. Michael Falcone of ABC News has the story:

“GOP: don’t retreat! The country is going broke. We can’t AFFORD cowboy poetry & subsidizing abortion,” Palin tweeted [here and here]. “If we can’t fight to defund this nonsense now when we have the chance, do you think we’ll win the big fight on entitlement reform later on?”

Palin referred to an issue that both sides involved in the ongoing negotiations on Capitol Hill agree has been a major sticking point — the debate over providing federal funding to the family planning group, Planned Parenthood.

[…]

Earlier today Palin posted a more than 800-word Facebook message, critizing President Obama for threatening to veto a one-week continuing resolution proposal that would have funded the Department of Defense for the rest of the fiscal year.

“Why would the Commander in Chief declare that he will veto this?” Palin wrote. “Why would he play politics at the expense of our troops who are putting everything on the line to protect us?”

Notably, some of Palin’s fellow possible 2012 presidential contenders appeared to be at odds with her Friday evening tweet, counseling GOP leaders on Capitol Hill that it’s time to cut a deal.

“I am ready for a big fight that will change the arc of history,” Rep. Michelle Bachmann, R-Minn., wrote on Twitter this afternoon. “The current fight in Washington is not that fight.”

Gov. Mike Huckabee, in an interview on Fox Business Network, recommended that Republicans make a deal and “live to fight another day.” But talk show host Mark Levin sided with the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, tweeting his approval:

“Gov. Sarah Palin: Right on!
