Poll: Why did Sarah Palin resign her Office as Governor of Alaska? A Daily Poll.
Sarah Palin doesn’t sleep......she waits.
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?
A poll? Gee, did they miss her speech? She told us why.
Personally, I think Obama’s Chicago gestapo made her an offer she couldn’t refuse.
isn’t it sad, they put an option for “scandal”
Do you think they’ll put that as a poll option for obama
How about FOR THE REASONS SHE SAID???????????
Liberals lie, so they think everyone else lies
they give 5 choices, and in my opinion, none of them are correct.
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
dont you know she lies all the time, her words dont mean anything. Remember she told us trig was her son, noone believes her. They all jump the conclusion she can’t be trusted
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.
She also grows.
From once a tiny acorn, the might oak has grown.
Why? To kick liberal ass that’s why! She loves America. She sees what is happening. She is taking action. That’s what Patriots do when their country is being taken over by commies! Go with God Sarah! Hey, I got my hope back! Woo Hoo! Eat it Obama, you’re a one term Carter clone without the fuzzy sweater. Epic Epic Failure Obama. Worst fake president ever. Show us a birth certificate you faker!!!
For the good of Alaska and the hope of our nation.
Mitt romney cries in the corner...
“they give 5 choices, and in my opinion, none of them are correct.”
Thanks, I’m going with that.
I will use the time you just saved me to go to her website and make a donation.
Finally, a Republican politican with a pair of...well you know what I mean.
The fact that she can be trusted is what bothers them.
It’s time to move on from the last election.
I’m already seriously sick of the there is a scandal brewing CRAP.
Good Lord what scandal does the left and state run media want to claim now? That she puts too much salt in her stews?
Mitt romney cries in the corner...
crying and confused!!
I don’t need to take a poll. She told us why she resigned, if people don’t want to believe her that is their fault, not hers.
Read her speech, she told us exactly why.
Move on then to your choice of the loser from the last election.
I’m moving on with the only candidate who can get things done once she wins.
To each their own.
Why did Sarah Palin resign her Office as Governor of Alaska?
To run for President in 2012 (54%, 44 Votes)
There’s a scandal on the horizon (22%, 18 Votes)
It’s none of our business (17%, 14 Votes)
To escape media attention (5%, 4 Votes)
To help her husband in the family business (2%, 1 Votes)
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.”
It is our responsibility to make sure that Obama doesnt make it through the 2012 election.
Sarah is going to pop back up in a surprising new position, betcha.
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.
Her speech is being repeated on FOX again and again. Got a feeling that the talking head on vacation will make sure we all hear it again....
All patriots need to grow a pair and begin to take our country back. Let it begin... NOW!
Even now you’re still stuck in 2008.
I’m waiting for someone who didn’t run last time to step up and fill the void.
If Sarah wasn’t a defeatist she wouldn’t have resigned.
No way we’re going to support a quitter.
She left for a couple of reasons.
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.
May your wait be fruitful and your dreams realized.
I already knnow who the next prsident will be, but I am not perfect for sure, and of course can be wrong.
For my part I can at least say for sure:
I will not vote for slick mitt
I believe Sarah is the ONE
Who’s this “we”? Keep tryin, Romneybot...nobody with any sense is buyin your BS.
Enjoy your wait - Your trashing of Sarah is NOT welcomed on FR - so don’t do your waiting on Sarah threads.
What do you mean we...?
You’re too clueless to understand. You say “we” after ALL YOUR trashing of Sarah? NEVER include me in association w/you - got it?. She has the conservative support and the vote. Get used to it loser.
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?
You got that right. I went to the poll to see if the choice: To kick ass was there- cuz that was the choice I was lookin for
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 ..
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.
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!
I can't think of a better gig.
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.
