To join the cast of The View...
Or to get her own late night talk show opposite David Letterman.

I missed the whole news day working. I’m curious to know: why do FReepers think Sarah resigned? What’s the consensus?

Personally, I think Obama’s Chicago gestapo made her an offer she couldn’t refuse.

Because she wanted FREEDOM, Freedom to travel across the lower 48 without having ethics complaint after ethics complaint filed against her. Now she can focus on writing that book, traveling the nation(and the world) and campaigning for other Conservatives. She was being smothered over there, not able to move a muscle without having some BS ethics charge made against her, it was costing her a fortune, now they will start filing complaints against Parnell, I hope he has a nice stash of cash, you all know it’s coming. Sarah is a genius, now she has the libs crapping their pants wondering what she is doing, “Is she running for President?” the libs hope she is done but she is NOT EVEN CLOSE TO BEING DONE which scares the crap out of them

She intends to run against Senator Lisa Murkowski in the primary...which is barely a year away. She wins the primary, and there is no legit democratic contender...so Nov’s election is a joke.

She has no intention of running for president in 2012. She will wait until the end of 2015...resign the senate seat, which the Republican governor will gladly replace, and then starts the same trick again of getting up into the primary season.

She has figured out that the 2012 election is not worth discussing and Obama likely has it won. So she simply intends to patiently wait this out.

My answer would have been to fight Zer0’s Socialist agenda. However, the ultimate fight would be to unify the nation against the DemonRATs and their Marxist thugs to put new blood into the House, the Senate and the White House.

You have a good take on this. But there may be one weak link in your logic:

“She has figured out that the 2012 election is not worth discussing and Obama likely has it won.”

Liberals are SO used to lying they can’t believe it when someone tells the TRUTH..wanna know something that scares a lib more then anything..an HONEST HUMAN BEING..yeah a person that actually goes on TV and TELLS THE TRUTH. Sarah went on TV today and spoke FROM THE HEART, no teleprompter, no notes, she just went up there and spoke from her heart, said exactly what she felt, Liberals are so damn used to lying they don’t know what the truth is anymore

I would have thought this was just a clever political ploy until I heard the tears of rage in her voice—rage and pain for her children, for the attacks these innocents had taken from the Left. I think she was sincere. Perhaps someone will change her mind and make her see that she has a duty to her country, but now she may feel that her principal responsibility, like that of any mother, is to protect her children.

It won’t help. She will continue to be the target of the hatred of the Left. Darkness always hates the light.

She left for a couple of reasons.
God.
Country.
Family.

The shrews going after her with lawsuits were draining her state coffers. Not good for her state or nation.

Notice she used the phrase servants heart. She knows Jesus.She’s willing to walk away from a paycheck to do what needs doing and has the faith to move through the painful parts because she knows what good is.
She has stood up and taken the hits and has put up her family being attacked relentlessly.

Its Time for her to change the game and go after the opposition.
Time to back her play folks. We’ve watched and waited long enough.
Hurray For you and GodSpeed Sarah!

Palin in 2012.
Tell a friend.

No way we’re going to support a quitter.

Since when is being offered a better job being a quitter? It's called a promotion. It's how capitalists, and regular Americans, move up.

When you were offered a job at Bed Bath and Beyond from MacDonald's did you turn it down because you thought you'd be seen a a quitter?

I think she’s taking a page from the Ronald Reagan playbook ...

After he lost the nomination in ‘76, he campaigned like hell for the GOP in the off-year elections ...

When ‘80 came around, he collected his markers ..

She's made this decision after a great deal of prayer. She is willing to let God use her to accomplish what is best for other people....

Had a discussion earlier in the day with a freeper who had a political science back ground. He kept saying...this move will destroy her etc etc....He forgot God is working in this....

We all need to read the old testament and the anointment of God's most unlikely rulers.

ROFL! Stepping aside to give the chance for Lt. Gov to establish his own "chops" and being a viable candidate for Governor when her term was up. Nothing would be to gain for the citizens of Alaska or the country for her to "ride the lame-duck" even if she was elected to a second term.

Huff-post skank was on Fox saying Palin's got a "book deal" and gonna rake in the big bucks....Making sure all the Romneybots wake up with cold sweats after the final nail is put into the RINO's coffin. Anything that makes the FLIP Romney RINOs nervous deserves a THUMBS UP!

Most folks think the following quote was from his resignation.

“You won’t have Nixon to kick around anymore, because gentlemen, this is my last press conference.” (November 7, 1962)

Say what you will, Nixon was a fighter, and was in it for the long run. Sarah is a fighter too, and I think (hope!) she sees the bigger picture too.
