Obviously, the fifteen frivolous ethics violation charges, all dismissed, were more than beginning to take their toll on her, her family, and becoming a distraction from her ability to effectively govern the State. She did mention in her speech that she had personally incurred over $500,000 in legal bills, "just to set the record straight," and she had to be wondering if the onslaught of attacks from her political opponents would ever stop.

Simple: to start up a national campaign base in the lower 48 states. Not hard to figure out. It’s nearly impossible to run for president from Alaska.
Did you read her resignation speech? It may have a few answers for you.
Does she have to repeat her speech using sock puppets..she stated point blank why she was resigning..also read her facebook posting today, she goes into even more detail
This is why!
I wonder why she doesn’t lead a NEW kind of political party. I think she would draw a lot of people, and create a real change...and forget the RNC, and the bag of $150,000 clothes they wanted her to wear. She would look GOOD in clothes purchased at GOODWILL...maybe we’ll all be buying there if Obama still is in power.
I know, let’s write a blog entry about it. Just in case we missed something that a million other people haven’t sifted through in the past 24 hours.
Remember Ross Perot? After he left (and did the dirty deeds of screwing Bush 41 and Dole), his party quickly fell apart. In its final death gasps, the kooks took over and it was a circus (all for the CSPAN cameras to record).
I don’t see how she can run for President now. She will be viewed as a quitter when times got tough, simple as that.
It may be that she has chosen to change the locus and nature of the battlefield, to one that does not involve the government and taxpayers of Alaska in responding to an endless stream of frivolous ethics charges. But the frivolous charges won’t cease so long as Sarah remains who she obviously is, a burr under the saddle of Radical Feminism and an offense to the Progressive Welfare Statists.
It occurs to me to wonder: once she’s gone back to being a private citizen, does this mean that when Tina Fey does an insulting impression of her, or David Letterman tells a “joke” about raping her daughter, or Playboy publishes a “joke” about raping her, it’s no longer something she has to put up with but now something she can sue over?
She’s no quitter. Folks will figure this out real soon. Except the PDS crowd, whose heads should explode as she keep them off balance.
Lots of people have left govt service to make enough money to take care of their families and to speak out on issues without the constraints of their office..
I HOPE SO.
Defamation of character....recourse against malicious court filings...and counter suits for damages. I’d like to see that fat DNC operative blogger in Alaska pay court costs for every baseless suit she files and loses.
Her Independence Day greeting posted on her web site sure doesn’t sound like she’s retiring.
Here are her target points from the last paragraph.
less government intervention,
greater energy independence,
stronger national security, and
much-needed fiscal restraint.
Sure sound like national goals to me.
You need to become a deeper thinker, friend.
It changes nothing. Holding public office has never been a requirement for being a public figure.
