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.
She doesn’t owe you anything. She owes her family. If you’re really interested you could have listened to her on Mark’s show explaining it.
Not a surprise at all. I like her, but she had no chance.
I predict Sarah will endorse Herman Cain and then become Secretary of Energy in his cabinet!
Wow. Tell us how you really feel! Anyway, Cain is a true conservative and he can beat Obama. Now if I can just find a job so I can contribute to his campaign.
Wait for what? Modern impatience has people forgetting that a candidate has until the start of November to announce.
We need to focus now on not letting Romney get the nomination.
Here’s the letter:
October 5, 2011
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 nations governors to Congressional seats and the Presidency. We need to continue to actively and aggressively help those who will stop the fundamental transformation of our nation and instead seek the restoration of our greatness, our goodness and our constitutional republic based on the rule of law.
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 Ive always said, one doesnt 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 that is truly of the people, by the people, and for the people can better serve this most exceptional nation.
In the coming weeks I will help coordinate strategies to assist in replacing the President, re-taking the Senate, and maintaining the House.
Thank you again for all your support. Lets unite to restore this country!
God bless America.
It looks more and more like we’re going to be stuck with Romney.
I know that the Party Pukes favor him, but surely we can do better.
I won’t vote for Perry (after the “heartless” comment) and I won’t vote for Cain (after the racially tinged comments). A pity on both counts. They had me going.
So, what’s left?
I was hoping to be enthused this time.
And I’m not enthused. Not even close.
“i feel sick to my stomach. She owes those of us who bought her books and supported her financially a explaination and an apology.”
Boo hoo, she owes you nothing. You willfully supported her and bought her books. She did not put a gun to your head.
“This country is through. Its all over.”
A little bit of hyperbole I hope ... keep in mind that Conservatives are poised to make some substantial gains in the US Congress. Our Presidential field isn’t *that* bad (except Mitt Romney). All in all, this country seems to be fed up with socialism. Plus, I think we know what Sarah’s role will be in 2012.
If she moved to Arizona, I think she might actually have her sites set on the Governorship ... she is NOT a Senate material ... she’s productive :-).
I am praying that the 2012 election is the bookend to 1932 when it comes to socialism in the USA. No matter who wins the Presidency (except Romney), we’re looking good. Standard disclaimer : Fight next year like we are 30 points behind in the polls.
Dang it. My wife is not happy.
So now I’m going to be voting for Cain in the Tennessee primaries.
I hear a giant sucking sound from the “Undecided” column, moving to the CAIN Column.
The field is set.

Gee, I’m shocked. /sar
This has been obvious for months, but I admit I’ll miss the Palin fanatics “just wait until she announces” rants. Now, can we end this tomfoolery and work on beating Romney first, and then Obama?
Because this gave zero notice to millions of people who were interested in her decision. When so many are interested, it's traditional some notice when an announcement will be made. Now folks will hear the news from every imaginable source, in every imaginable way. Many won't believe it at first.
Bad manners, and I don't buy any nonsense that it's unique and wonderful and anything special. Just bad manners.
“The Letter” from where? What’s the source?
Just listen to it he had her on the radio and she says it again...I’m not running for President.
It is going to be Romney...he will likely do everything he can into talking Rubio into the #2 position. Then it is hold the nose time. I am probably amongst the very few here who think Romney will beat Obama (that's my silver lining on the dark cloud). I don't like Romney, but I can see that he will pull enough independents and p.o'd business type Democrats (believe it or not, they are out there) to win. He's getting it the only way he ever could, with the most ridiculous Democrat in the history of ridiculous Democrats as the sitting president.
I’m disappointed, sorta, but not surprised. I still support her cause & agree we must fight the good fight. I’m on the Cain Train, now.......all aboard!
I don’t really want to say “I told you so”, but I told you she wasn’t running.
This was the worst decision she could have made......I am crushed beyond belief and wonder what they threatened her with to get her out, she was always running and we all knew it.
Several? Bachman has done herself in. Cain it is then. There is no one else running that qualifies.
I don’t really want to say “I told you so”, but I told you she wasn’t running.
Ugh...seriously bummed, but glad we have a decision. Gettin’ my ticket for the Cain Train.
I will not be supporting her in the future, she left us hanging and hoping and YES I'm disappointed but now I will send my support to Mr. Cain, family and friends will be knocking me for the next few weeks as well...
I guess I'll eat ‘crow’ for the next few weeks, just today I stopped by walmart and bought her video...it is unopened so I will return it...and send the $15.00 to FR.
OK time to seriously pick a favorite and get to work...OBAMA has got to go....
Sarah is NOT running... I am sorry. God must have another plan for her.
If I read every single comment by every single candidate and rejected anyone who ever said anything I didn't like, I would never have cast a vote in the last thirty years.
She had to know for sure. I’m sure she’s been weighing a lot of factors before the decision was made.
NEVER fall in love with a politician - they'll break your heart every time.
Focus on the principles instead. They'll never change.
And Palin is 100% right about that.
I’ll stand with Cain.
I respect her decision. Its her life, her choice..if anyone had to live in her shoes for 5 minutes they would understand what life is like to be Sarah Palin. She will be President one day, just not in 2012..she can run in 2016..but the first step is to get rid of Obama..and I will be voting for Cain because the rest of the nominees don’t excite me like Cain does..and I think at the end, Sarah will endorse Cain, I felt it last week when she talked about him and I think that is what she will end up doing. God Bless Sarah Palin and her family..that is what it boils down to, her family..they told her not to run and thats that.
I doubt if you would be enthused if Jesus was running for President. Gee whiz...get over yourself.
I’m afraid that now, we will have but lesser candidates to choose from. The candidate we’ll get will not be the most qualified but the one with the most money to spend!
It’s her press release - http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2011/10/105741/
Take a deep breath!
This is the same SP that called Cain “the flavor of the week” right?
SP is a patriot. She will back Perry for POTUS, just like she backed him for TX gov.
As Matt Drudge said: It”s a sad day for America.
I am now in full for Cain.
Was it over when the Germans attacked Pearl Harbor?
No We are Americans and we won’t quit ever!
Pray for America
she has lost all her power and will just be a joke......I feel so betrayed and that’s what Bambi wanted......they will never allow a real person into power...I wouldn’t be surprised if they cancel her speech in SK
No surprise here.
That is B.S.
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. \
she does owe people an apology and an explaination. What the hell is wrong with her ?
Mitt won’t win. And the good news is that Elmer Fudd can beat Obama, and so let’s make sure that we nominate a conservative Fudd. Go Herman!
