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.
Agreed Perry/Cain with Palin as energy secretary if she clears up whether or not she still supports Perry as she endorsed him or if she disavows saying you betcha to being Romney’s VP.I like her politics but she has some explaining to do.
And before the Palinista’s all start smearing Cain for saying he endorsed Romney in 2008.They better realize Palin did as well.Perry and his Gore affiliation former dem,Bachmann former dem.(So was Reagan BTW)They all screwed up so let’s not throw the baby out with the bath water and re elected Obama bashing tea party conservatives,please.
Also Christie is pro life and was off the charts in a live poll to both democrats and republicans.He would have been most like Reagan with the union vote.Christie could have beat whoever will challenge Obama even a Bayh.
Not voting for Romney, if he is indeed nominated, is a vote for Obama.
Time to hold your nose.
You people truly are delusional if you think Herman F%^*$ING Cain is going to get the nomination.
It's Romney. And we get zero chance now to absolutely tear apart Obama via Obamacare...
DO YOU KNOW WHY??????
BECAUSE OF THIS; F^%&%%ING "ROMNEYCARE WAS THE MODEL" for Obamacare.
I am so f*&%ing pissed right now, I can't see straight.
Romney is the ONLY candidate that will incite a Tea Party challenger on the ballot in most red states.
Then we’re back to 1992.
Dems will push Romney hard in open primary states.
Unreal. No, this isn’t a chess move. Unless Palin runs for the Senate or Congress, she will be 7 years removed from public office in 2016. Unless she becomes CEO of a successful business, I don’t see how being a TV personality/author for the next 5 years is going to improve her chances. She has peaked, IMO, unless she takes the leap and runs for a federal office. Even being a cabinet member isn’t going to improve her chances at a presidency in 2016, because she’d be running against her boss in that election.
Right on! Game on!
I am completely...like, totally...shocked.
But of course she just now decided and hasn’t been stringing people along...no she’d never have done that.
See Carling, there you go again. One of the great lessons in all this is watching how differently people responded to the leftist memes crafted to destroy Sarah. You assume, for example, sans evidence, that she has had nothing but monetary motives, and thus, by implication, she was at best insincere with her support base, a slanderous innuendo. But you consistently and conveniently, no matter how often corrected in good will, overlook solid evidence that contradicts your theory.
May I therefore remind you that she turned down a second season of her Alaska show, worth about 10 Million, to keep herself available for this race? Is that “maximizing her earnings?” She could have made in one summer what will now take her decades on Fox. That is, if they will have her. She was bashing them pretty good just a few days ago. Again, not the action of someone trying to increase her earning capacity. Your world and the real world, at least as it concerns Sarah, are not aligned.
I have tried sincerely not to unnecessarily berate anyone here (with one or two notable failures), because I knew this outcome was possible, and that whatever happened we would all have to work together to oust the Marxist in Chief. Our country is worth great sacrifice. It is even worth it to me to work with people whom I otherwise couldnt stand, just to have a shot at bring us back from this brink we have nearly gone over.
But I have to ask, Carling, if you want that too, as you have said elsewhere, why do you deliberately and consistently torture the facts about Sarah into saying things they don’t say? Do you actually want to alienate the Palin fan base? Because you’ve got a technique that works. Keep spreading the love like you do, and we’ll all be so pissed at each other it’ll hurt our energy and our capacity to function as a team on the field of political battle. Do you want that? Sarah is good people. You have zero evidence to the contrary. Get over it.
I’m still looking, but can find one of R’o’mney where the O has the big Obama symbol. I’ve looked on Google images but haven’t been able to find one. I know it’s got to be out there somewhere.
I feel exactly the same way. These idiots who think we have another 4 years to mess about before the whole financial system comes crashing down don’t have a clue. Keep celebrating folks!! Romney will now get the nomination & probably lose to Obama.
“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 agree, and I want to add my Thanks to the Palin family. They have endured hell over the last 3 years, and come through it in a classy, and honorable fashion.
Although I really wanted her to run, I have said for a year that her family would be the guiding factor in the decision. She still has young children to raise, and with all the vitriol, and hate coming from the rabid moonbats, and the state run media, I dare say none of us would want to subject their children to this. There’s clearly a double standard. The Obama children are hands off while pigs like David Letterman are out there publicly hoping her children are raped. As a parent would you want your children exposed to their mother being called a “C*nt” by the likes of a Bill Maher. IF I was Todd he wouldn’t make it to his car the night he said it.
God bless you and your family, Sarah. We still need your help, and will be grateful for any offered. But I for one understand, and absolutely respect your decision.
Mr Cain, what can I do to help!! Lets Roll!!
I agree. I’m sure that was her motivation.
We had a businessman as the last Republican governor of NH, he was a disaster.
It’s a very different skill set. Politics is dishonest, greasy, and low - and those are its good points.
Mr. Cain may be everything you hope he is, but he will be under the floodlights for more than a year, it’s just my opinion, but I don’t think he will last.
I hear you. So often in life we become so wound up in a cause that we become what we hate. Some here are so committed to stop the left that they will use the same methods, knuckle dragging, slobbering and very hateful. It is sad as so often considered discussion and debate is impossible and everyone loses.
We don’t yet know whether this was a bad decision. She IS a kingmaker and considering how influential she was in the midterms this could be the best thing she can do for our party. She can stir up a crowd like no one else. When she backs a candidate that person will rise. It won’t be Romney.
I curse to Hell anyone who does not vote for the republican nominee against Barack Hussein Obama.
And that hell will be our beloved America.
If the Democrats weren’t afraid before, they must be peeing in their pants now.
I would guess she can make a difference in 6-8 Senate races and 25-30 house races through both campaign stops and raising money for those individuals. Dick Luger might as well announce his retirement now.
Pretty much the typical post from Palin's more fanatical FReepers. Hopefully this BS ends soon.
You are correct. There is NO perfect candidate. There will ALWAYS be something to disagree with. Sarah Palin was my personal number one. Cain is next. If I can agree with him a good 90% of the time, that is good.
I had a talk with my brother, a true conservative, and we went through the list of who’s left, rating them between ourselves. It’s Cain for us now.
A few days ago I had a conversation with my dad, who is an 86 year old Vietnam vet and retired Air Force guy, and he was telling me about this ‘guy’ he’d been hearing about, the ‘Godfather pizza man’. He told me he really, REALLY liked the man. I sent him toddling off to Youtube to do some research. He then agreed with me that if Sarah didn’t run, Cain was the route we’d go.
I’m disappointed Sarah isn’t running, but totally understand her reasoning. The media and the elite R’s have really done a number on her and, especially, her children. They would have really doubled down on their efforts to totally destroy this woman AND her kids. What we’ve seen up until now would seem like the calm before the storm. She can do much good for the country in other ways.
It has been obvious for a while she is not running. Now lets see if she can help us elect a President other than Obama or Romney.
I believe it is you that was behaving like a trained seal, or moose or something.
I'm another who declines to join the circular firing squad.
what a shame, the Palinista’s tore down Perry, now we are almost guaranteed Romney.
Imagine if Palin had only told us this a month ago, Perry’s numbers would of surged to 50%, Bachmann, Santorum, and Cain would of dropped out and then Perry would of surged to 70% and the race would of been over.
By Palin waiting just a few weeks longer she messed up everything.
Some folks here are really disappointed. Perhaps you should wait a while before the “I told you so”. Shows compassion.
At this point in 07, it was going to be Giuliani or Romney, not McCain.
Same reason I totally don't get the Cain Bandwagon. We are talking about giving an entrepreneur in the Pizza business full control over the American Military and nuclear arsenal.
Factually false. He asked Chris what that was before he answered.
We're done. Stick a fork in it. I can't believe Palin would do this to America.
As ridiculous as it gets. She has zero chance of winning and was the only candidate that put Obama at 50% of the vote in any poll and polled behind him even in Alaska. She will be far more effective behind the scenes than being a candidate who would lose in a landslide, which doesn't help anyone.
I think with her decision not to run, her influence is greatly diminished. I’m afraid she’s going to begin fading into the background at this point. I don’t wish this upon her, but I just think it’s how things will play out.
For that, I thank Sarah for staying a "maybe" as long as she did--one day longer than Christie.
..but your question of 'why was I expecting this (her announcement of candidacy).....BECAUSE SHE GAVE EVERY INDICATION IT WAS FORTHCOMING!
I didnt pull this hope/expectation out of thin air!!!!!!!
There may very well be someone even better who will declare soon.....I hope so
But I truly feel...now...she led us along.

They have you fooled that bad, huh? America watched Sarah at the Glenn Beck rally on the Mall standing there in silent prayer. We know who is there glorifying Him.
She’s the only choice for the mass of America’s Christian Right, and every media-concocted poll/article/pile of snot between now and election day that says otherwise is just more purely Satanic attack on the strongest conservative Christian leader to be raised up in our lifetimes..
You and your thought-controllers are in for quite a shock come election day.

You were saying?
right...but we aren't there yet...Romney doesn't have it yet.
“Cain will not win. Cain and Perry will split the conservative vote. Romney will win the nomination and probably the Presidency. The only option is either Cain or Perry to gain enough in strength to knock the other out and get their endorsement. I dont see Perry bowing out. If Cain continues to do well I dont him quitting or needing to quit. So there we are.”
I believe your analysis is correct.
If this had been the other way around, I have no doubt that anyone who said anything like Sarah isn’t running, would have been on the receiving end of non stop nastiness.
Thank you for posting that and your absolutely RIGHT..I tell ya, I couldn’t take 10 percent of the crap that the Palins have had to deal with these last three years, not only from libs(U expect that because they are libs, they are supposed to trash the other side) but from her own party..its absolutely disgusting and trust me I dont look at the GOP the same way that I did before. They cant even come out and defend their own, nope, instead they join in on the trashing. I respect Sarah’s decision wanna know why, because she owes me NOTHING..its HER life, HER families life that is the most important thing to her..her baby Trig, all of the hell that precious little baby boy has gone through, I wouldnt wish it on my worst enemy. When he gets older he will read some of those nasty comments and wonder why anyone would hate him so much. Its despicable and I hope that every single person who has trashed this woman get what’s coming to them, karma is a well, you know what I mean LOL.
God Bless the Palin family, a wonderful human being, a wonderful family. U keep fighting the great fight, she will ALWAYS have my unconditional support!
I'm glad you've finally come to understand the good person she is. But I guess not everyone gets it. Some people don't even believe she has a genuine faith in God, that her prayers and serious deliberations before God were real and she was really seeking his wisdom and will in the matter, and literally could not render a final decision until she was sure she knew where she stood with God and her family. But someone with a handle like yours could not possibly have overlooked that about her, and that no doubt is why you do so well understand her.
She did NOT call Cain “the flavor of the week”. She said THE PRESS made him flavor of the week as they did with Bachmann & Perry. Everything she’s said about him has been positive. Go listen to the interview (context is everything) she was speaking of the press.
It is certainly not helpful. I have no respect for anyone who will say such hateful things about one of the candidtates who are ALL trying to save this country from certain ruin.
If a person doesn’t support a candidate, then respectfully take the hate talk to the Democratic Underground where it belongs!
You guys attempted to do it to Perry.
Can’t say I’m surprised. Many here have been saying she wasn’t gonna run and been labeled “PDSers” for it.
At least the wondering is over.
You know, I was told much the same thing when I suggested that Gov. Palin wouldn't run.
There isn’t enough cheese in the state of Wisconsin to go with that whine.
It'll leave a smile on my face for days!

Sane conservatives don’t vote for liberals of any stripe, Democrat or Republican! Or kooky libertarians either. I will never vote for an unprincipled, two faced, anti-gun, pro-homo, abortionist! Not now not ever!
Hold your own nose.
