Not surprised because of her comments/attitude when Greta interviewed her a few weeks back.

No matter what, she will continue to be of GREAT service to conservatism, and will do what she does with her whole heart.

I'm sure much prayer went into this decision.

Love the Hermanator, but the last person elected President with NO elective office experience was Eisenhower, and he only, y'know, won WWII

Actually, your example proves the opposite of your conclusion!

Spousal unit and I were talking about this today while reading something about the "Corrupt Bargain" that put Rutherford B. Hayes into the White House.

We got on to Herman Cain and the fact that he had no elected experience and that last time that happened was probably Ike.

Then I said (my point here, finally!) - the thing about the presidency is that there is no fixed resume that the person should have. There are times when the president MUST have an unusual background, precisely because it is necessary to have a President that is unique for the times.

Ike was elected this way. He wasn't elected because he was a popular general. He was elected because the United States still had a lot of mopping up to do with the WWII, including figuring out our new military-industrial posture in the world (the U.S. had not been a Superpower until WWII), figuring out occupied Europe and Japan.

Ike had run a large organization -- the U.S. military -- and after the war the U.S. needed a President who knew how to run things, "move, shoot and communicate" as they say in the Army. Ike had helped transition from war to peace in the military and had helped stand down the wartime machines. Likewise the country now needed to make the transition from wartime to peacetime, all the while still have considerable mop-up duties around the world.

So Ike was elected because he was the right man FOR THE TIMES. He had the skill set and experience to address the unique issues facing the country at that time.

Cain is an accomplished, experienced, successful businessman who is also a great communicator and someone who CAN (unlike Obama) shift the topic of race, finally, into the 21st century. We need someone who knows how to run a business, who understands from experience the real economy. Sure, it's not WWII-level experience, but we don't need someone with Ike's skills now. Business, financial, real economy experience and skills are what we need NOW.

We may just be at one of those relatively rare points in history where there is a man who should be elected because, like Ike, he's right for the times he lives in.

Are there any Palin fans who are now switching to Perry?

I was a Palin fan, not a Palinhaler. Didn't think she'd run, even back when she said "I do have that fire in the belly."

Now, she's out and Romney's a shoo-in. I'll support Perry or Gingrich, at least they know something about governing and campaigning. Not happy about it though. They are flawed.

I was repeatedly told by some posters, even some on this thread, that is exactly what would happen to me “when” Palin announced her candidacy. I’m showing restraint, but after watching the same people who ripped Rick Perry to shreads whine about Palin being attacked, it’s difficult. As I’ve posted a dozen times before, Palin could have stopped all of this infighting months ago by making a statement about her candidacy. That she chose the day after her WalMart combo pack was released seems to be more than a coincidence, and a window into Palin’s own priorities.

She draws huge crowds and was key in electing conservatives in the last election. Maybe she thinks she’d be more effective doing that. Perhaps, though, just this once you can hold your snarky comments. It’s mostly all you’ve done on Palin threads. I understand her decision and while I wish she’d chosen to run I think she thought long and hard about how she can be most effect. I’m happy to support Herman Cain, but many of your fellow freepers are really disheartened. It’d be nice if you can remember that. Just this once. Then you can go back to being as big a jerk as you want to be.

If you really feel that way, then do the rest of us who are willing to persevere, fight and prosper to get it done without you. Just leave already. Buh bye.

Oh, I know you won't, so have yourself little pity party, whine, sulk, lash out at me and cry like a wittle baby and get over it. Soon, you'll feel really stupid for imagining the future of our great country rest in the hands of Sarah.

EVEN Romney can beat Obama and he doesn’t have to make Obamacare the focal point of his criticism of Obama. It doesn’t have to be central to his campaign. But, Romney hasn’t captured the nomination as yet. Let us retain our composure and let us reserve the vitriol for our un-American and anti-American opposition.

By Palin waiting just a few weeks longer she messed up everything.

I don't see it that way. I never thought she would run and I certainly wasn't waiting on her. Yes there were some misguided FReepers that were waiting but they represent a relatively small segment of the voters. She wanted to keep her options open and I don't blame her for waiting. So I don't think she had much of an effect on the nomination battle.

I won’t vote for Perry (after the “heartless” comment) and I won’t vote for Cain (after the racially tinged comments).

More power to you, but what is so egregious about those two men's comments that make a true-blue liberal like Romney preferable to either one?

For sure, if Huntsman does well in NH, it is likely those looking for “anyone but Romney” will coalesce behind him. He is way more electable, ethical, experienced, competent and conservative than Romney. Jon was a front runner early in my book.

Sure, it's not WWII-level experience, but we don't need someone with Ike's skills now.

Cain was a ballistics analyst for the Navy, so if he were to become president and then launch a war against Iran, he could probably plot the missile coordinates himself! LOL!

You don’t know the woman. You are making an assumption about her thought process as am I. You just don’t happen to like the conclusion I have drawn which is a 180 turn from yours.

I supported this woman in her primary against Murkowski. Maybe you should ask what would turn a person who used to support her before the nation knew her, through the presidential race and for a year after.... against her.

Sorry if you don’t like it but all I see is a woman with some help of her supporters who helped damage the only candidate that was competitive with Romney and Obama. Of course he helped with his fumbling on immigration but he is not solely the reason for why Romney is now going to be our nominee and I’m angry. the one candidate I didn’t want to receive the nomination. It happened with Mccain in ‘08 and now it will happen again.

Nope...and I think your statement calls it exactly as it would be, unfortunately. Don't blame her a bit.

Our country has so many disgusting people in power now, both in the media and government that I am not convinced any candidate will be able to turn this nation around....it doesn't want to I'm afraid.

Huntsman’s (and Romneys) global warming stuff will be very tough for me to get past. My family is auto industry. Huntsman’s a LOT more liberal than I am, but at least I know what I’m getting from him. Romney biggest problem isn’t that he’s liberal, but that he’s untrustworthy.

Time to pick up the pieces and move on. Words can't describe how bad I feel,but...we have to go forward and do the best we can with getting the most conservative person elected...i'd like to see her as a running mate,but I don't believe that will happen.

That being said, I will NEVER-EVER-EEEEVER...cast a vote for Romney. My next choice would be Cain after Sarah.

Sure.

But the grassroots has more power than ever. This is going to be the first presidential race that is fully New Media-ized and Tea Party-ized.

There are much fewer ways for the parties or the LSM to “control” the election.

Point being: we have to take full advantage of our new power and wield it to save our nation.

Think of how effective she was in the midterms and how well & bluntly she talks about conservative principles. Maybe she thought she could be more effective this way. Presidents do have to temper themselves (VP’s not so much). She’ll still serve our nation. Maybe when all is said and done this will turn out to be a great decision. No one can doubt her love of country. Besides there are many jobs she’d be great at in a new administration. In addition to energy secretary she’d make a great Sec. of State. Imagine how that would put the left’s panties in a wad.
