I support Cain 110% now. Bachmann doesn’t even belong on the same stage with him.

A president with zero political experience, and a VP who quit her statewide office two years into her first term?

Get real. Reality said all along that Palin was never as popular within the GOP, including GOP voters, as she is on FR. I’d feel bad for the true believers who bought her BS act, except for the poor treatment they gave me and some others for pointing out the reality surrounding Palin’s chances in 2012.

>>>>>>Cain will likely win

Based on what? Cain won't be the gop nominee. Right now looks like Romney will go up against Obama and lose, of course. If Perry can recover from all the gratuitous attacks thrown at him from the left and right, he could win in a tight race. Otherwise, its Willard the liberal who will be the Republican standard bearer for 2012. My vote will NOT go to Romney under any circumstance.

Relax my FRiends ... I don't think we've seen the last of Palin. I sincerely believe she just initiated a Queen's Sacrifice. I think we'll look back at today as the day she singlehandedly disarmed the opponent. If she announces her support for Cain, Bachmann, Santorum, or Gingrich in the days to come, I will be certain of it. I have my fingers crossed yet for a ticket with Palin's name it. I hope all of you that feel disaffected today will take heart and say your prayers for the same. This very well could be the start of the winning stroke and we need only to recognize it. If my suspicions are correct, this is masterful.

Your callousness is palpable. What’s the point in your post? Do you think we would do otherwise? You have no idea what America has lost. Palin is a casualty of the debasement of media and culture, let those who yearn for a noble leader to take a breath. Is that too much to ask?

I'm glad she made her decision. Like we said some time ago, this is better for her and her family, but I'm still sad (selfishly) for our country. She's got a lot left for her in rallying the troops, helping candidates, and pushing against the socialist agenda.

I'm likely going to shift my support to Cain, I think he has the best combination of attributes and experience for the job.

I like Sarah very much...bought her books, loved what she said. But I never, ever really believed she could win the Presidency.

Now, opinions of others be damned, I will vote for the GOP nominee. I will probably vote for Perry in the MI primary, as I believe he's the best all-around choice. Not perfect, but best of what we have. Love the Hermanator, but the last person elected President with NO elective office experience was Eisenhower, and he only, y'know, won WWII (hyperbole, but that was the feeling). Perry/Cain I would be enthusiastic for.

Mitt...bleh. But yes, I would vote for him in 2012 if he's the choice. Romney/Perry or Romney/Cain, better.

For all supporters of others, I implore you to do the same. Obama MUST be defeated. Hold your nose, tighten your sphincter, and pull the lever for Mitt in 2012 if necessary, and then work like hell to get a conservative House and Senate in place alongside to keep him on the straight (heh) and narrow.

I don’t find her announcement mode strange at all.

In fact, I find it a lot more appropriate than Christie calling a two-hour presser to go over every little detail of his decision.

I'll take Cain, Santorum or Bachmann in a heartbeat. Any of em would be just as good as Palin.

But if push came to shove in the general election I'd vote for Perry or even Romney. As lousy as they are, they'd be infinitely better than BO.

Whats the alternative?

She owes those of us who bought her books and supported her financially a explaination and an apology.

I bought her books, sent her money, and feel let down too. However, this was the right decision. Going forward, she rallies the troops, helps select the next President, and perhaps gets a position in the next Administration such as Energy Secretary where she can make a positive contribution and re-introduce herself to the average American. She is a young woman still. All in good time.

Me too. It's been obvious for months, hasn't it? I do want to say "I told you so", though, because of the verbal abuse, reporting to JimRob, etc. etc. that myself and others received from fellow FReepers for daring to point out Palin's flaws as a candidate, and why she wouldn't run.

Honestly, I have to wonder if she was waiting for that sleaze’s book to come out. I think that alone made her decision. She realized it would only get worse and didn’t want to put her family through that stuff - true or made up - doesn’t matter. She has seen first hand how SNL and the MSM were so relentless. Sure, maybe she was strong enough to take it - but her kids to have to live through that ugliness may have been a bit too much. I wish the best for her and her family. They didn’t deserve all that rot.

Focus on the principles instead.

Cain is as close as I can come to supporting someone on principles. Santorum and Bachman, perhaps, but they seem to have no chance. Other than that, it is simply a bunch of RINOs jockeying for position.

Ambivalent about this because I really, really like Sarah Palin. But I also think that America has had way more than enough of Presidents with limited life, executive and business experience. Her time will come I hope but now is not her time.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Then based on this.... Cain is definitely OUT. But (hopefully) that means Bammie is out too.

Mitt won’t win. And the good news is that Elmer Fudd can beat Obama, and so let’s make sure that we nominate a conservative Fudd. Go Herman!

I love your attitude, LS...always have :)

Herman Cain's missteps can mostly be attributed to the fact that he's NOT a career politician. I pray that he's not a "plant" for Myth...I don't think he is. With top tier funding he can surround himself with excellent advisors...that's what great leaders do.

Pray for Sarah. Pray for America.

Why did she have us wait?

She was probably looking at how she would be received by the voting public. I'm guessing she didn't want to throw her hat in the ring, and have it become evident that she just doesn't have a wide enough level of support to get the nomination.

She's got a deep base of people who are passionately supportive of her. Then again, so does Ron Paul. Her support needs to be wide as well as deep.

With her definitely out, the hard-core conservatives are likely to coalesce around Cain. Perry's immigration position has damaged him with conservatives.

She quit on Alaskans, and now she quit on her 2012 supporters in order to maximize her earnings as a TV star and spread the conservative message that way.

There is no conspiracy. She’s about one thing more than anything ... herself and her family. I just wish she hadn’t had led many of you on for so long, because there are divisions now on FR that weren’t there prior to this summer. Also, where is the SarahPAC money going to go?

Time to get on the Cain Train!

With Palin out of the running, Cain is the best of the candidates. If he gets the contributions (I'm hoping to do my part soon), he can make it...he can win. The contrast between Cain (upbeat, private-sector experienced, natural) and Obama (negative, bombing in his first real job, always scripted) will be readily apparent to all Americans except the nuts on DU and that ilk.

Romney is getting the nomination. I am beyond pissed.

Possible, but not necessarily. By all accounts he should be where George W Bush is back in 1999 based on his organization and money. A lot of people just don't trust Romney, including me. Romney was also the establishment choice in 2008 and could not beat a dead in the water John McCain. That says something about his electability, and not what the pundits think. Revisionist history has McCain as the establishment choice. It wasn't. It was mostly Romney, followed by Giuliani.

There's a large enough anti-Romney vote to deny him the nomination. Whether it is Perry, Bachmann, Cain, Huntsman, or someone else remains to be seen. It depends on their organization and ability to get the votes of the undecideds.

I think Palin made a smart decision for two reasons. One, she didn't create an anti-Palin candidate. That would have been Romney. Palin, like Romney, has enough people who view her negatively enough to vote against them to stop the other candidate. Two, her endorsement power. Palin has a big enough following to get a lot of supporters to support someone based on her word. It's like an NRA endorsement.

Well, I am very disappointed with her decision, but it is her life to do with as she sees fit. So now post Palin, it is time for me to move on.

One bright side I guess, that $1,000.00 Wife and I had set aside for Palin, can now go back into savings, for it will certainly not be going to any other candidate now running.
