I am a daily poster and I don’t have to like it. This does not constitute serious discussion when we act like small children and make fun of each other’s choices’ hair or clothes or accent.

There are ways of discussing without getting into the gutter.

Just sayin’.... :)

I’m disappointed but have to hard feelings for her decision. I still support her regardless of this decision. Rainy day supporters need get past it, put their big-boy pants on and support Herman Cain.

RE:”But what about that running outfit?
It's all a ploy... SHE WILL RUN, don't listen to what she says, look at the SIGNS!!! lol

I was thinking the same thing, see :#385

There are a whole bunch of them , the running outfit on the “I can win” Newsweek cover, she said ‘We” when addressing the candidates on FBC recently, she was wearing an ‘I am’ T-shirt at the Iowa State Fair, the 'Fire in her Belly' and her surprise participation in the “Jump Right In and Run” half-marathon in Iowa.

. I also read that Republicans moved up their primary because she is running and yesterday's inquiries into the deadlines was the big signs. They are all over the place .

I knew she wasn’t running for sure when it was said that the powerhouse Christie didn’t have enough time to prepare in 4 weeks;if he were to have run.The live interactive polls on Christie went off the charts.He is pro life and more Reagan like than anyone.He would have been a blunt Reagan LOL.He would have had the union vote like Reagan.He would have been crowned and there wasn’t enough time.I think Palin knew she wasn’t running months ago.She did an exploratory committee and listening tour without having to break her Fox News contract.

Worshiping a human—ANY human—is folly. All humans are imperfect, fallible and won’t always do what they should. That pesky free will.

Far too many people here put Palin up on a pedestal and thought she could walk on water and do no wrong.

Time to come back to reality.

We had a real chance to elect someone with a rock-solid, true to the core, Conservative heart. We needed someone like that to reverse the damage from this unprecedented socialist/communist Cloward-Piven Obama Administration. Now we get Mittens. Super-mega-tard-RINO, Mittens. A guy that so passionate about his beliefs until he needs to flipflop on them tomorrow speaking to a different group of whothefU*(ever.

HEY, BUT HE HAS GREAT HAIR, AND I BET THE NY F&*^&^ING TIMES WILL ENDORSE HIM, JUST LIKE THEY DID JUAN MCSTAIN IN 2008. WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

Great, just f*&%^$ING great.

Well it isn’t like he is going to do anything about global warming regardless of whether anyone agrees with the science. Aspects of the Huntsman energy policy will actually release significant amounts of greenhouse gases. So I don’t get why he is considered moderate or liberal, especially re: economics where this election will fall. But definitely preferable to Romney on every level !!

I'm surprised she used Mark's show as the avenue for announcing...but if that is what she has done and decided...so be it.

Supposedly there was also a letter sent out to close supporters today that read:

October 5, 2011
Wasilla, Alaska

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 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 I’ve always said, one doesn’t 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.

For me, at this point then, it is...


HERMAN CAIN FOR A STRONGER, MORE SECURE, AND RESTORED AMERICA!

And hopefully get grounded in reality and follow the Buckley Rule - support the most conservative candidate who can win.

Absolutely! Ponder this: Hillary could be a lot harder to beat than Soetoro Mugabe. To quote the Joker, What this town needs is an enema. For those with a bit of faith left over, a veto-proof senate and grass roots house would be a good fall back position. Remember 2010. Never give up!

If you are going to donate, donate to the candidate, not the party. The party is corrupt.

carling is right caww. It's been absolutely ugly on FR and the ugliness directed toward Perry was inexcusable imo. But we move on.

Anyone that got that ugly on Palin threads either had their comments removed or they were banned. But it continued mostly unabated on Perry threads and toward the people who are favorable toward Perry.

Not voting for Romney, if he is indeed nominated, is a vote for Obama. Time to hold your nose.

Such is the mentality that has brought us to this day ... the mentality the establishment GOP depends upon. It's not time to hold your nose. It's time to vote your conscience. Write someone in if need be. But pay special attention to the congressional races because the write-in will likely not win. In the meantime, get behind the most conservative candidate on the field for the primary -- and that is not Romney.

She is letting her country down and that is a disgrace. Doesnt she have any guts at all ? She just freaking rolled over and conceded victory to her enemies.

I like her, and hoped she would run. But now, after seeing this thread, I don't blame her one bit.

She called on people to be tough... "Mama Grizzlies". Too bad a lot of her supporters turned out to be baby weasels; the kind to flee the country, or complain that they bought her products, or whine that she is responsible for any problems the Nation will face in the future.

It turns out that some of her supporters have a lot in common with the Obama people. They have made her out to be a messiah, on whom all of their hopes and dreams were dependent.

Just wish her well, and get over it.

I’m with you 100%. This is really bad news. My opinion is that voting will not solve the mess we are in.

She represented the very slim chance we had for straightening things out without having to hit rock bottom.

I’ll vote for Cain. Knowing that things are probably going to get really nasty in the next few years.

But what do I know? I’m just a noob and here to learn.

Dear Sarah,

I was your Omaha O4P coordinator and spent the last few months (and many more before that as a general supporter) taking arrows, slings and all sorts of crap for you. I spent a lot of money and a lot of time.

In 2008, on election day holding a McCain/Palin sign, I was spat upon, accosted and threatened. I did it for you, not McCain.

I attened your speeches, drove long hours, and met lots of nice people. I bought your books and DVDs.

I thought you would of had to class to tell us months ago that you weren’t running and now I feel strung along.

You burned me.

So now, the MSM celebrates, the GOP elite celebrates, your detractors celebrate. Why? Becasue they won. They now have a proven method of taking out conservatives. All that’s left are the RINOS and the Statists. You just gave Obama four more years. Your main appeal was that had the potential to be POTUS. Now, you’re just another voice in the crowd who will fade into the night. The name Dan Quayle comes to mind.

So, in the manor of Pontious Pilot....I wash my hands of you.

If you’re thinking of 2016 or 2020 forget it. If for some reason, Cain wins the nod, you think you’ll be the Veep nominee. Kind of dout it.

Congrats Sarah, you’re no trivial pursuit question.

“There are several good choices available.”

No, there aren’t. None of the people who have tossed their hats into the ring are fit to be president, morally or intellectually. They are empty-suit politicians with no moral compasses whatsoever, except for Cain, and I suspect he is a closet racist.

America will not survive another four presidential terms.

There is no candidate.

Not one that can do what absolutely has to be done to salvage the country. Our problem is mostly elitist corruption, and all except Cain are very much a part of that corruption.

I wish Cain were different, not supporting the Fed, and business killing tax schemes, but he is who he is.

We are toast.

Apparently you missed the numerous threads where anyone who wasn’t wholly behind Gov. Palin was labeled, among other things: homosexual, PDSer, “concerned”, troll, RINO, DUer, RomneyBot, supporter of the Huckster, Democrat, liberal, etc.

This is a significant development at FR not only because many people have been waiting for Gov. Palin to announce her candidacy, but because a subset of those same FReepers were downright nasty to anyone who didn’t agree with them. Not only were they nasty, after they ganged up on fellow Freepers and drug them through the dirt, they’d then celebrate on the thread giving, as one FReeper put it, “high-fives”. For me, the whole Palin candidacy question has been a real eye opener. And not in a good way.
