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.
Unlike those who snipe from their armchairs while continuing to put up with this miasma of mediocrity, I'm f%$&ing outta here before it explodes.
Palin could have turned it around. There isn't another Palin in the wings. America is finished, and Palin did it.
...her decision has hurt so many people.....people who had built great hope with this woman.....as well as I....
..personally I don't want to hear or see her for a great while.
wow really? such drama! good grief. As for me, I'm probably going to support Cain in the primaries, not that my sickening state (California) will help in the general.
Stop throwing your towel in
I’ll have to go shoot a buzzard; a crow won’t be nearly enough.
Sarah won’t have the influence she thinks she will. I don’t care who she endorses. I don’t vote based upon what others say. To say she can have more influence than being President is really stupid. What a waste of time this all has been.
“This country is through. Its all over.”
Pity you think that because it’s obvious that Sarah doesn’t.
Scene from Animal House
How so? Cain has extensive life, executive and business experience. He just has limited experience sucking on the government teat.
We will replace one guy who wasn't ready for the Presidency -- and is in over his head, with a DIFFERENT guy who isn't ready for the Presidency -- and will be in WAY over his head.
At a time when we are 15 Trillion in debt and war in the Middle East is a certainty.
Cain indeed. But that’s not what some here want to hear! ;)
She did no such thing , she wAs referring to the MSM.
She may have intended to run earlier, but she read the tea leaves.
You know she never said for sure she would run.
You dreamed that up and didn’t listen to her.
Rick Perry still won’t win.
I know he’s not popular here but I really think Romney should get the nomination. Plenty of experience in private and government, maturity. He looks and acts like a President.
Cain is fine,but I doubt he can win in Nov. How many Presidents have had zero govt. experience, excluding 4 star generals?
Don’t get me wrong I disagree wit him on gun control, but with a Republican Congress I’m not too worried. You will never have a perfect candidate.
Give Palin supporters time to grieve and don’t be snotty. They invested a lot in her and are disappointed. Remember ... they’re fellow FReepers not enemies. You wouln’t rub disappointment in a friend’s face. Don’t do it to your FRiends either.
Mine will, IF he's the candidate against Obama.
No sane or rational human being who actually thinks it through could possibly conclude that our country would be better off under the control of the Kenyan Marxist for another four years.
What I will NOT do is cast or fail to cast my vote in any manner whatsoever that would even indirectly or incrementally benefit Obama. No way in hell.
Obama is the enemy here,folks. Obama. Let me spell it out for all of you: O-B-A-M-A I-S T-H-E E-N-E-M-Y.
Palin is sane and rational. Because she is sane and rational, I am absolutely confident that she too will vote without any hesitation for Romney if he is the Republican nominee.
That should have been your clue. The Florida and SC primaries are now in January. NV moved up. If they haven't already, IA and NH will move up. That is three months away. Did you really think that she was going to start a campaign for President of the United States of America three months from the first, critically important, primaries?
Heck, people--with big checkbooks--were begging Christie to run and he still said no. Why come in now, lose, and then mess up your chances later?
As much as I wanted her to run is there anyone here surprised that she has decided to forgo the rectal examination she and her family would be subject to? I know she and her family have endured much since her selection as McCain’s VP choice. But as the head of the ticket the prior scrutiny would have seemed mild.
Ya got me :)
Sorry, been reading high school history answers all day - you’d not believe how fast they get depressing!
She broke the news on Mark Levin’s show? I just heard the news via Bret Baier’s “Special Report” on Fox...
How long before the first ‘Palin MUST endorse Perry’ thread????
Don’t throw your towel in. Get behind Cain and support him
She will be on the record with Greta tonight and for the first time I WILL NOT be watching....betrayed is not the word that is strong enough for me, I was ready to help, I was ready to give, and I will NOT be running over to Walmart now for the DVD, which I went to get at 5am this morning....glad I didn’t get it.
The former Alaska Governor and VP candidate sent the following letter to her supporters on Wednesday:
October 5, 2011
After much prayer and serious consideration, I have decided that I will not be seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for President of the United States. As always, my family comes first and obviously Todd and I put great consideration into family life before making this decision. When we serve, we devote ourselves to God, family and country. My decision maintains this order.
My decision is based upon a review of what common sense Conservatives and Independents have accomplished, especially over the last year. I believe that at this time I can be more effective in a decisive role to help elect other true public servants to office from the nations governors to Congressional seats and the Presidency. We need to continue to actively and aggressively help those who will stop the fundamental transformation of our nation and instead seek the restoration of our greatness, our goodness and our constitutional republic based on the rule of law.
From the bottom of my heart I thank those who have supported me and defended my record throughout the years, and encouraged me to run for President. Know that by working together we can bring this country back and as Ive always said, one doesnt need a title to help do it.
I will continue driving the discussion for freedom and free markets, including in the race for President where our candidates must embrace immediate action toward energy independence through domestic resource developments of conventional energy sources, along with renewables. We must reduce tax burdens and onerous regulations that kill American industry, and our candidates must always push to minimize government to strengthen the economy and allow the private sector to create jobs.
Those will be our priorities so Americans can be confident that a smaller, smarter government that is truly of the people, by the people, and for the people can better serve this most exceptional nation.
In the coming weeks I will help coordinate strategies to assist in replacing the President, re-taking the Senate, and maintaining the House.
Thank you again for all your support. Lets unite to restore this country!
God bless America.
I see you are very happy and clapping like a trained seal.
How long before she “reconsiders”?
Things will quickly start to shake out now. I predict we’ll soon have a top tier of Cain, Gingrich (whowouldathunk) and Santorum.
Once Romney loses the “he’s the most electable” veneer, he’s got nothing. Look for that to happen soon.
Once Cain loses the “he can’t win” label, he’ll soar. Look for that to happen soon.
I don’t care how much money Perry raises, he’s still likely to continue to flame out.
That leaves a top-tier of Cain, Gingrich and Santorum.
Cain won’t select her as VP he needs a Newt like VP. Ain’t gonna happen.She may be Perry’s VP or whoever wins’ energy secretary and drill in Pelosi’s back yard as I have said all along.
Thanks- you had that ready!
I’m disappointed but have been watching HeMan Cain gain ground.
You really need to get off freerepublic and work on yourself. You’ve posted about a thousand vanities supporting her, and now you say she “can’t run an icecream shop”. I’m not for banning people easily, but considering your inane vanities you’ve posted over the years, and your total meltdown today, you really need to go. Go see a psychologist. You have problems.
What are you 12. Nobody owes you anything. I’d rather she “let her country down” than herself and her family. There is nothing wrong with her but there sure is something wrong with you.
Amen, and amen! I actually think this is the beginning of something great. I never thought she could win the nomination anyway, much too much of a polarizing personality, but I do think she'll be very affective out on the campaign trail for others. She's a dynamic force, and I'm looking forward to all she'll contribute in the years to come.
Because she said she’d be running a different campaign.
I’ll have to re-research it.
Please. Rick Perry has taken 10x the abuse on FR in the past two months from people like you than St. Sarah has ever taken since she became a public figure. Pointing out that she is a quitter who signed into law the bill that led to her quitting is a fact. If pointing out facts about Palin is off-limits, perhaps she is as thin-skinned as some of her more vocal supporters on FR.
Thanks- you had that ready!
I’m disappointed but have been watching HeMan Cain gain ground.
Are you going to change your tagline, too?
That’ll show her!
Ok Cain all the way!
Don’t you think Dems can push Romney hard via their version of Op Chaos?
I jumped aboard right after Perry showed his true colors on immigration to my heartless soul during the last debate. He may still wind up as the nominee with his 17 million in the last four days of fund raising. Maybe that can't be overcome. Or maybe Americans will stop drinking the green (color of money) Kool-Aid and wake up to Cain.
Well, i’m very disapointed. Time to get on the Cain train.
Not a fan of the “big hearted” bumbling idiot from Texas.
LOL, where have you been?
A die-hard Palin supporter will absolutely not let the name “Bachmann” get mentioned without bringing up Ed Rollins, or accusing her of being a stalking horse for Mitt.
Santorum is still getting hit for the Spector endorsement in 04.
Cain? Have you seen the Blitzer Interview threads where people try to make it seem like he thinks States can override the 2nd Amendment when he doesn’t? Also, they hit him for apparentally playing the race card against Rick Perry.
If you look for the die hard supporters now claiming the sky is over and review their thread posts, you will see this info come up everytime these candidates are mentioned.
Buh-bye. We patriots have not yet begun to fight.
