I'm already in with more than 1k and twenty videos from WallyWorld! Sent them to friends and family to screen with doubters.

My daughter called this afternoon to say "I told you so"! I told her I wasn't so sure this was the end. I do understand Sarah's decision, but feel she would respond to pressure. I truly believe she would put "country first"... despite the family angle! (Piper agrees!)

I don’t buy the “family” angle, myself. Something else is influencing her decision. I believe a real solid groundswell of support can make the difference. If nothing else, it’ll serve to keep us engaged in the battle.

Something else is influencing her decision.

I'd agree with you. She made the decision, with familiy, in the affirmative, to enter months ago. Her second decision was the timeframe to enter - as late as possible. If she changed her mind on the first decision, she would have announced "No" as soon as she knew. Thus, my conclusion that something other than family drove her decision, and did so in the last week or so.

To: television is just wrong

The so-called “tease” was the interpretation of those that didn’t recognize her motives for waiting till the last second. Once realizing that, given she is running, her best shot was to let the others slog it out, she didn’t need the name recognition gained by an early entry, there are plenty of more debates for those that felt she should be slogging it out as well. The media had it in for her the most; and she was already quite well “vetted”. I believe many that recognized this, prior to her announcement, were rooting for her to wait not just to the last week possible (end of October), but to the last day/hour/minute/second.

I chased and was chased by a gal for a couple years. We went out, to dinner, dancing, concerts, picnics... name it.

But it never really worked.

I can honestly say she was the most beautiful woman I ever met. Irish Catholic with cheekbones halfway to heaven.

Broke my heart.
Bad.
I still dream about her.

Six years later, I was married, and after 12 years, my wife died.

Crap Crappens.

To get right to the point..and probably part of (maybe event the whole) the issue of her not running...is that in the end any candidate needs secret service support.

The chance of any Flyover Country candidate getting that full support from the Rinocracy is nil to none. Kapich?

Let her be with her family - they need her.

Those girls are a mess.

Trig is probably badly needing his mama more than ever right now.

Go watch the videos from the “family RV vacation” (paid for by YOUR donations to her PAC) and pay attention to Piper shoving press people... yelling at her grandmother to roll up the window ... pushing her mother to get in the bus ... pouting. You will see that she needs her mom around.

Let it be.

I would have voted for Sarah but i can also vote for Herman Cain with the same or even more confidence and i hope that is who she will support.

The reason i can have even more confidence in Cain is because he is the exact opposite of Obama Except for his color, he has already proven that black people can succeed on their own without a government socialist tit to suck on.

He was not tutored by the socialist elite for the purpose of being their man in the white house, he is a freedom loving American who i think with a little help from the people in this country ( the people with the tea party spirit ) can bring this nation back from the disaster it is headed for, we have an advantage with him over Sarah palin because we can throw the racist slurs of the socialist back in their faces.

Personally i am convinced that we are on a path of no return, this may be a chance and our last one.

If she had come in on her own, I'd put a dent in the checking account and wear out a few pair of sneakers for her. I'm not sure that this size of a "flip-flop" would make for an effective Sarah Palin candidacy right now. Especially since she was very clear about the amount of consideration that went into her decision.

While I'm disappointed she's out of the race, i trust that we will have much to cheer about as she actively engages in the "behind-the-scenes" soldiering to help oust Satan's useful tool.

Some are still in denial. To them she's some type of Joan D'Arc who could never do anything self-serving, and everything she did was for the good of America. Unless it's quitting things "for her family."

She is not a politician. She is the purist of the pure, who is "not for sale" - unless of course you're a reality show, a book publisher, Fox News, SarahPac or you have an event where you could pay her huge speaking fees.

It would never occur to the Palin cult that she's a publicity seeker who simply took the money then ran.

Here's hoping the she, her purse holding husband and the unending drama circus stay in Alaska... in absolute obscurity.

Palin and Cain are not the same.

Cain has run for office multiple times and lost.

Cain sits on the corporate boards of multiple companies and receives checks from them even this day.

Cain has supported Romney who was pro abortion.

Cain has never run a state.

The guy who grew up the poorest and pulled himself up was Perry. He grew up farming cotton and without indoor plumbing for the first few years of his life. He went to an Ag/Military college, not "the black Harvard", Perry joined the military and climbed to rank of Captain, Perry now runs the 2nd largest state in both land mass and population. Perry doesn't believe the 2nd amendment is a States rights issue and actually owns guns and uses them regularly (unlike Mitt and Cain). Perry is a member of the American Legion, Perry is an Eagle Scout, Perry can almost shoot 5 rounds in the same hole.

Don't think for a second that if Palin even endorses a candidate it wont be Rick Perry.

Not interested but thanks for asking. Palins made her decision and I have no problem accepting her reasoning she can be more effective without the constraints of being a candidate....I agree with this.

... and we have not seen the last of Palin by any means. She will continue to effect the election as she exposes and calls a spade a spade. It’s better, imo, to support her as she has asked.

I want to break this to you gently. Sarah has a very devout following on FR but when you consider the country as a whole, I don't think so. When freepers started putting her up as a savior I started asking people in my world how they felt about her. The news wasn't good ya’ll, she wasn't very well thought of and I asked a variety of people in different walks of life.
FR is kind of an echo chamber.

I don't have strong feelings either way, and I haven't been involved in the arguments circulating around this forum for the past several months. But there's a certain irony in asking a thread about Palin to be treated as a religion thread given the accusations of hero worship...just an observation.

Never ceases to amaze me how oblivious the Palin cynics can be to facts. And here I thought the whole purpose of cynicism was to achieve truth through objectivity. When attempting to see inside her soul and divine her secret motives, did either of you factor in her rejection of a second season of her Alaska show? An easy 10 million if she took it.

But no. She turned it down so she could continue being available for the race, and all the abuse associated with it, up to and including credible threats to herself and her family. This she did, thinking foolishly that the non-political class, her true base, would get it. Instead, she gives up all that easy cash, puts herself and her family on the line, and all she gets is this lousy jilted lover post.

So if it turns out she failed to run because the LSM was able to sell the “Evil Palin” meme to too many good folks like yourself, with no serious factual basis, then when we get our DNC picked candidate handed to us in Tampa next year, I suggest you look no further than your own mirror for the responsible party. The saying is true, a nation gets the leadership it deserves. Too bad. I was hoping for more.

During her interview with Mark Levin she said that a third party run would ensure an Obama victory so I think that's out the window.

The only scenario I could see is that if the Republican picked someone and then some news came out that would ensure an Osama victory then she could do it with a clear conscience.

I'm glad to see she still has a lot of supporters here. Keep your powder dry. We attack when she gives the word. No sooner.

I don’t have strong feelings either, but wouldn’t we rather get behind a candidate who is champing at the bit to take up the banner and get into the electoral fray than one who has to be begged to run?

This has been the rap about Christie and even Perry to some extent.

A pre-apology if I messed up this thread.

I do agree with that. But what I find more unsettling is that, in the midst of a primary, there is a mindset around here that would silence even well-intended criticism that is free of personal attacks.
