Agreed, but really, they are at no more risk from him now than they were 3 or 6 months ago.

I’m sure Sarah, Todd, and Bristol have him figured out.

Its hard to admit when you are wrong. Hopefully this makes things better for him and his son.

But,as a Christian, Sarah most certainly will accept his apology. Its her way, regardless of the hard hearts on here.

If we don’t forgive others, then God won’t forgive us. Its as simple as that.

Well, now that his kid's grandma, who could have been his mother-in-law, is a multi-millionaire...

I disagree, he is not Tripp’s father ... he is Tripp’s sperm donor. It requires time, effort, support, sheer presence, to be a father.

Any man can be a father---not every man can be a Dad.

forgive my youthful indiscretion

At least he didn't wear a white hood and burn a cross on her lawn.


Interesting point!

Didn't he found a chapter of the Sarah Palin Hate Club?
How is that different from what Byrd did by founding a chapter of the KKK?

Bill Clinton said Byrd's behavior was excusable, because he had to get elected. LOL!

Hmmmm.

Byrd defended the Klan in his 1958 U.S. Senate campaign when he was 41 years old.

Hear Hear!

To not forgive is like you drinking poison expecting the other one to die.

I applaud Levi’s asking and I expect the whole Palin family will forgive him. It’s the right thing to do.

I want to hear who put him up to trashing the Palin family.

Money-Grubbing Smear Merchants Rex Butler and Tank Jones Target Governor Palin

Is Palin is starting to reveal "Who" were behind the false lawsuits & "How" they did it? Yes!

Just wait, he chose to make himself a tool of the left. If you trust that, so be it.

He can do a lot more damage. Don’t underestimate the influences he has aligned with.

Apologies mean nothing to them. Its lipspeak.

I’m no longer a political supporter of Palin, but I do not think she should let Levi off the hook simply because he said he was sorry. It’s going to take some time and some proof that he really has changed. And I don’t think God would judge her harshly for adopting that game plan.

Why is nobody questioning why this is public in People magazine?

That is a red flag right there.

Seems a really repentent Levi wouldn’t need public attention to make amends.

My point is that they won’t trust him with more than they have to. Same as 3-6 months ago.

They are stuck with him no matter how he chooses to live his life.

Hopefully, he decides to learn, and become a better person.
I have no dog in this fight, but I know that kids need a good Dad, and if there is any chance he can become one, it’s worth the effort.

Yeah, he hasn’t been a Dad since the kids birth, in fact he has been a rotten excuse of a person. Perhaps he could wait awhile at arms length until 2013.

I would not trust him. He probably wants access for another tell all book or something.

Keep him at bay until after the 12 Election. Make him earn his trust.

Ah, the ugly truth behind Christianity in America. An awful lot of lip service is paid to forgiveness, but amongst all Christian beliefs, it’s the least practiced.

He needs to retract each statement line by line.

A general blanket apology isn’t going to cut it, he said some nasty stuff.

Darlin, you're the one who got a little batsh!t. I asked two very relevant questions since you seem to think 'baggage' Levi would be bad for a Palin Presidential run.

Now you gonna take a Midol and answer the question, or continue to act like a hysterical fool?

Good Luck to the Palin family, through all these trials.

This thread is disappointing on many levels and yours is a most pertinent point. It's the reason I no longer visit the site much anymore. On one hand you have self proclaimed Christians saying he doesn't deserve forgiveness (while speculating how this can help or hurt future political agendas) and on the other hand you have those saying he's doing this because he's run out of money. What? Are they suggesting Sarah offered him money to do offer a public apology?
