She couldn’t even finish ONE term! Why in the world would anyone vote for her as President, when she has so little experience, and she quit the governor’s job, which was hardly even started!

I will be the first one to vote for her then...And I'll bet there are a few more...

Coulter is partially right. Palin IS a huge star among a large group of voters. There is also a large group of voyers who detest Palin as well.

I hope Ann is right on this one.

I will vote for Sarah any chance I get.

And yet, we do not agree with this move she has made. I, one of her supporters, who likes her, probably will never vote for her, because she didn’t finish her term. She didn’t keep her oath, or her word. When the tough times came, she cut and run.

Your opinion is clearly on the record now. Enough whining. Geez.

If it was a mistake, it is done. If it isn't, time will tell. Your incessant whining, whether sincere or otherwise, will not change that.

Enough already.

Just out of curiousity, how did she not keep her oath or her word?

Also, you don't call it cutting and running when you stop one direction to turn and face your enemies head on. What she is doing is the opposite of cutting and running. It is turning and attacking.

You think it is a bad idea. Fine. I question your motives in trying to convince others that it is a bad idea. Just let it play out and we'll know. Your over-the-top insincerity about this does nothing positive.

"She is a pathological liar and about the most calculating personalitiy to take the national stage in memory."

1. Any evidence for that statement?

2. If she is as bad as you say, she has some pretty stiff competition in Obama.

Look at how much experience Obama has. And he never accomplished a fraction of what Palin has done.

It’s shameful that so many people on this site couldn’t figure this out for themselves. It’s even more shameful if they did get it, but just bashed Sarah because they’re supporting some other candidate. They’re no better than liberals.

I'll put Palin's character, intelligence, and integrity against that of an insignificant keyboard jockey like you any day tuckrdout.

No matter how much you desire for Palin to go away, this is just the beginning for her and unfortunately for you we'll be seeing and hearing alot more of her.

Ann Coulter is right, you are wrong and there's nothing a fussy little prick like you can do about it.

“”You think it is a bad idea. Fine. I question your motives in trying to convince others that it is a bad idea. Just let it play out and we’ll know.””

My thoughts exact! Ya gotta wonder when “conservatives” go out of their way, not to just discuss, or voice concern about Sarah’s decision, but to be sure it is clear that all of the sudden, now even THEY will never be able to vote for her....

I think we all understand that no candidate is perfect, and when it comes down to it, sometimes you have to choose the lesser of the evils - Heck, I voted for McCain for pity’s sake!! You do what you have to do, and hearing posters on FR saying Sarah has lost THEIR vote, simply by making a decision to take a different route to the same destination, sends up big red flags for me, about the posters!

If these are good folks, who are really only fearful for the future, (as any of us might be), or are disappointed, by all means say so, but good grief, at least TRY to refrain from the urge to throw Sarah, (and all the rest of us!), under the bus!

Sure wasn’t going for Huckabee, and Romney doesn’t light my fire and McCain only got my vote because of Sarah.

You took the words out of my mouth.

By the time the Missouri republican presidential primary rolled around I was a no show at the polls.

Dude....let’s say there’s a company and in that company is a vice president of whatever, and they are doing a GREAT job. And many on the board want this person as CEO. The shareholders will totally benefit from it.

Should the VP say ‘nah, I’m going to stay right here because that’s where you all wanted me in the first place?’

OR....should the VP rise to the occasion of filling a position they were REALLY cut out for?

Answer this question, please:

How can one use the governor’s “bully pulpit” to deflect charges of political abuse without committing political abuse?

Sorry, but she was damned whichever way she went, so she chose the freedom to pursue her agenda her way. Surely you don’t reject freedom?

If the 0 kids had been attacked in the MSM like the Palin kids MO would be in the offices slaying reporters with thigh crushes. Sarah took the high road. The supreme idiot Frank Lutz was on FNS this am say he thought Sarah should of stuck it out. Yet another data point proving Sarah did the right thing. The MSM should be ashamed (which they are not) of attacking a challenged kid less than two years old. Scumbags one and all.

By quitting, she destroys those values. She crushes what I believed she stood for. She validates her critics with this move.

Wind, what say your instincts? Methinks Tucker is overdoing the doom-and-gloom, but it might be he's just sexually frustrated over her?

Tuck,

You can lay off now. She's already married.

Cheers!

Even though she’s just a state governor, she’s a HUGE national star who is both sought after and attacked as if she is already a president (a Bush, not an Obama). But she basically can’t participate because she’s tethered to the governor’s office up in Alaska. Consequently, she has to fight with one hand tied behind her back and she also can’t go around the country campaigning for candidates and principles she believes in – because she’s governor and would be accused of neglecting the state.

Exactly and exactly what the take I had. Good job Ann.

That had to have been Liz Tratta, former NBC reporter. Usually she’s pretty good.

It was Liz. I saw it and she was every bit as nasty as hs said she was.

I've never seen her like that but it sure changed my opinion about Tratta.

So funny how Palin has thrown most of the "talkers" off track and they don't like it one bit.

I even saw Michael Reagan saying she was done. All because she didn't consult him. He kept saying he wanted to give her advice but she didn't ask him! lol

Read her facebook statement and her resignation speech.

The reasons are there. The only thing “shrouded in mystery” are what she is going AFTER her resignation.

I read it and I heard her give the speech. I heard and understand her reasons for leaving, but she gave little to really indicate her future plans. I think we need to let her tell us her next step, not spend all this time speculating on what she may or may not do next. In the mean time, time’s a wastin’ and there is much to do.

I agree with you that the resignation is a major issue. Not sure I'd call it "stupid," since no one is quite sure yet what Gov. Palin wants to do-- depending on her goals, it could be a smart move (for her). I doubt she was "tricked into" resigning, because I think she would be too smart to fall for such a ruse.

I have read the comparisons to Nixon, Reagan, etc., and they all leave out a key issue: neither of these predecessors resigned an elected office. I think the "quitter" label will be hard to shake. I hope Ann Coulter is right, but I tend to agree more with Mark Steyn's view. I hope to be proven wrong.

Your post is the most idiotic thing I have read on the internet in some time, and that’s really saying saying something given the garbage that floats around these days.In a few sentences, you have managed to show everyone that you: a) Have absolutlely no idea what the term “conservative” means; b) do not actually read the news, but only respond emotionally to it; c) can not only read minds but predict the future as well, as every syllable of idiocy you have uttered has not even a single shred of evidence to back it up.

By definition, you are a liberal. Please see my tagline if you have any questions, DUmmy.

Actually, he couldn’t announce his run until NBC gave him the greenlight... which they wouldn’t do until after the “rerun” season of Law and Order. That meant September.
