Romney: Palin hasn't spent enough time with me

On Fox & Friends today, Mitt Romney responded to Sarah Palin saying that she's not yet convinced he's a conservative.

"Well, we should problem spend time with Sarah Palin, although she's hard to find.... I'm not quite sure what she'd be referring to.

I'm pro-life, I'm pro-traditional marriage, I believe in the Second Amendment. As governor, I balanced the budget every year I was in office, put in place a $2 billion rainy day fund, cut taxes nineteen times."

Not that Palin fans weren't tepid to downright hostile to him before this, but his opening crack probably didn't win any of them over.

On Sunday, Palin said on Fox News:

"Most voters in the GOP, and Independents, we will want to see that candidate who we can trust will just inherently, instinctively turn right – always err on the side of conservatism," Palin said on Fox News Sunday. "I am not convinced [Romney is that person]. And I don't think that the majority of GOP and Independent voters are convinced, and that is why you don't see Romney get over that hump."
