Take it for what you will...posted on Mark's page just now: BREAKING: GOVERNOR SARAH PALIN TELLS MARK LEVIN SHE IS NOT RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT IN 2012.
She can do a lot more good from the sidelines. Herman Cain now has my support. And I love Palin but if she endorses Romney I’m not voting for him.
A very nice post. Thanks.
She didnt deserve all of the hell she has gotten..from BOTH sides..both sides have treated her like crap and for what, after all, what horrible thing has she ever done..nothing..she is a beautiful human being who only has wanted to help people and this is how she gets treated. I dont blame her at all for not wanting to run, she has had enough of this crap and she will probably endorse Cain who I am happy with. Maybe if some on the GOP want to know why she chose not to run they should look in the mirror..there is only so much a human being can take
Thirty minutes ago, if I had posted on FR to the effect that Palin was seen as a "quitter", you know what kind of flamage I'd have been hit with, right????
Why are you so down on Cain? He is a very smart man and he is a conservative. What else do you want?
I had no problem with Palin jumping in the race, but I too concur that some of her most die-hard supporters have viciously attacked others on here and against any candidate they saw standing in her way, including other conservatives in the race.
Some of them are saying the sky is falling and all hope is lost. Others are trying to explain it into some kind of “brilliant move” that furthers her overall objectives.
At this point, I’m glad she’s made a decision. I don’t have a problem with Cain, and I still like Bachmann.
Wake up and let go of these silly Palin dreamland scenarios. She is just another media member at this point. She will not be a VP choice, just as she won't be President.
“”What the hell is wrong with her ? Does anyone have an answer ?
If this is how she is, I wouldnt hire her to run an ice cream shop. She is a person with little purpose nationally now and I can believe she just folded like a coward.””
It appears you are trying to get a response from your immature postings.
Yep, I'm now about to eat A LOT of crow! I'm very disappointed (and that's an understatement).
I think your analysis is correct. I like Cain, but he has no, meaning NO, political or governing experience and would be a horrible choice. But I think the reason he has been sucking up to Romney is because he wants to be VP, and that’s probably how Romney will get support from some people who would not otherwise support him.
I think Perry would probably be the best (although I really didn’t like him very much initially) and would also get the fabled “independent” votes, because he’s an alternative without being something so radically base-oriented that an “independent” would get freaked out.
He’s a conservative overall and obviously would give us smaller, less intrusive government, get rid of a lot of restrictions on our economic development, also supports traditional American values, and would present a clear alternative to Obama.
Romney presents no alternative, and therefore even the independents wouldn’t vote for him. And most of the GOP who gets out and works the polls and really makes the voting happen wouldn’t vote for him either. I say that as someone who works for the GOP candidate every time, and even did so with McCain - but I wouldn’t work for Romney.
CAN WE ALL UNITE BEHIND CAIN AND TAKE OUT OBAMA AND THE LEFTIST IN TRASH IN 2012 EVERYONE?????
COME ON - TIME TO GET THIS DONE.
Exactly what did Cain say that was so “racially tinged”?
Famous line from Animal House.
I hear ya. Not going to happen.
She doesn’t want the job, yet you’ll still vote for her.
She played you, just as I said she was doing all along.
The democrats are very disappointed.
Maybe. But Maybe not. Palin would have siphoned votes from the Dems real GOP candidate.
Agreed. Sarah would not want to appear as "second banana" a second time. Either she goes all in or she stays on the more lucrative sidelines as a potential king maker. Easier on the family.
Truer words never typed. Agree 100%.
I haven’t seen Palin supporters attacking the other conservatives in the race, Santorum, Cain, and Bachman. I have seen a lot of attacks by them on the RINOs, especially Perry and Romney.
Cain is the obvious arch-conservative choice at this juncture....
Well I bet the Fox News managemwent will be mighty pissed she did not announce this on THIER network. Especially Hannity and crowd. I think this will free up alot of money that folks were planning to donate to Palin and maybe Cain or Perry might get a bit of that money. Perhaps the money people were going to donate to Christie will go to Romney now and that in a nutshell will be your GOP 2012 battle.
There is no Republican, including Ron Paul or the Mittster, that I would not vote for over Obama. But that said, I plan to support and work for Herman Cain and/or Rick Perry, whoever has the best shot of stopping Willard.
Palin will help us cement a Republican majority in the House and a fillibuster-proof majority in the Senate and a CONSERVATIVE in the White House!!!
Well I for one will NEVER vote for Mitt Perry. I will vote third party if I must vote. In my view Mitt Perry will be just as bad as Obummer but in a different way. Either one of these three still have almost the same goal and that is to turn America into a socialist country. For now I'll be pulling hard for Herman Cain. Go Mr Cain.
The last thing I wanted to do was hold my nose for another election. So disappointed.
Well, I suppose this isn't much surprise to the people of Alaska???
There is an old notion that people should give important news directly to those who have a real interest in the news. Millions of people who have hoped Palin would run will now hear the news in all sorts of ways: from smart assed Palin haters in all sorts of smart assed ways, and with no notice at all, and on and on.
No, this news should have been given with some notice so that those who have invested time and hope and money in Palin could have heard it directly from her.
FReepers are surprised? Seriously?
This is reason number 1798 on why I will not donate to politicians...she strung along her followers for months and months, all the while accepting donations to her various PACs and books...then dumps out at the end while living high off the hog.
Why does she owe anyone an apology? I have not heard one thing from Palin leading me to believe she is running for president. I've heard people asking her to run and the usual "heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend" stuff from cryptic blogs, but nothing from Palin until now.
The only ones she owes is family. What she owes people who bought her books is a book. What she owes people who donate to her PAC is good endorsements. That's it.
I find it quite distressing how some of Palin’s biggest fans turned on her in an instant.
That type of “support” would not have bode well for her presidency, had she run and won.
The Romney folks won't change. The rest of us will go with whichever conservative seems to have the best chance of taking the nomination away from him. Doesn't have to be any particular conservative, just has to be a conservative.
Ann Coulter (big Christie supporter) went to Romney.
Honestly, I have to wonder is she was waiting for Wal-Mart's release of the Going Rouge/The Undefeated combo pack yesterday. That's my cynical side speaking, though.
All I can say is no conservative=no vote from me.
I will not vote for Romney,Gingrich,McCain or any other RINOS, ever.
No, I won’t stay home, just leave the presidential space blank or write in a candidate of my choice.
I am simply amazed and saddened at how hateful fellow freepers can be to one another when a candidate is being discussed.
Finally, the answer can be, "Yes." And hopefully get grounded in reality and follow the Buckley Rule - support the most conservative candidate who can win.
I think a lot of conservatives thought she was not running but didn’t say so in order to get her message out. However, it is time to fish or cut bait. This depresses me but considering the unprecedented filth being thrown at her, it is the best decision for her personally.
I don’t see anyone who has a chance and, at the same time, attracts my interest. Cain sounds good but hasn’t been tested like the others. What happens when the MSM savages him as they surely will. Perry folded as did Bauchman (sp?).
Cain won’t pick her, but one person I think may be very strong in the running for his VP would be Allen West. The ticket would be balanced with Economic/Foreign Policy and West has inside the Beltway knowledge of how the system works to help the outsider Cain. Not to mention that would be an awesome ticket.
Or you can throw your support to Generic Republican, who just announced yesterday he was running:
I hate to say I told you so but....
“I TOLD YOU SO”!
The reason she isn’t running has nothing to do with anyone of FR. She didn’t plan on running. She never sat up the ability to do so.
She sorta fooled ya. Don’t blame anyone else.
Feel sorry for the guy here who just bought five copies of The Undefeated.
Oh, please. You paid for a book, you received a book. If you gave donations, you did so of your own free will with no promise of anything in return. Grow up.
Well I voted for Romney in ‘08 (when it came down to Romney, Huckster or McCain). I think this will help Cain.
