Sarah Palin confirmed in a letter to supporters she will not run for President in 2012, saying at this time she can be more effective in a decisive role to help elect other Conservatives to office.
Below is a copy of Palin's letter:
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 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.
Post #91, btw, you are too old to pose like that.
I can see President Perry from my house! :o)
It looked lie Perry performed a gotcha on himself.
I'm very disappointed, but I've said all along that it's Sarah's choice and after I get sober, I'll start to look at the rest of the pubbie candidates.
Good night, y'all.
Plus I’m a man...LOL
LOVE HER and shocked and saddened at this news, BUT..... she will not have the influence or the voice she thinks she will anymore.... just won’t happen. Most people who hung on her every word (including me) were there to support HER run.....AND Palin supporters are not “followers”, but are self thinkers.... they don’t need someone telling them who to vote for, by supporting her for so long, they proved they can pick a good candidate..... and all though I love her, this only gives credence to all those saying she’s been in it for the money all along....I don’t believe that, but it’s difficult to defend now.....
Yeah, funny too that the disappointed Palin folks are turning to Cain- NOT Perry. HAHAHAHAHAHA!
Turn off the magnet? LOL!
Tell that to the feds (you dolt) who MANDATE that the states educate, feed, and otherwise care for illegals.
They don’t come to the US for in state tuition (you dolt), but many of them do come for the other bennies that the FEDS give to them.
So, back to square one (you dolt), what ideas do you have that the feds will let you implement?
She/he was banned, oh well.
Amen. But it is also true that it's a crying shame we had a ten-year governor potential Prez in our bullpen who's managed to kill his chances like Perry has.
Pity, she’d have won.
Sarah undoubtedly knows things about the fury the progressives were likely to unleash if she were the
candidate that we do not know. She has advisers and spies analysing this coming campaign that gives her much better
understanding of most effective way to fight them. She is
a smart tactician and it is up to us stay strong and ready.
I disagree, there is every reason to believe that Sarah can still be the first female President, just not yet. She's still quite young, and 2016, 2020, 2024 are all possibilities. Plus the added time gives her the opportunity to gain all sorts of experience and support. :)
I agree. And I don’t care who she endorses. i was one of the ones who woulda driven hours to see her in person. Now i wouldn’t go across town. Dissappointed. All her rhetoric about the dire danger America is in economically will seem hollow.
An observer who heard her say something dire about the direction of the nation would *have* to notice that it must not be bad enough for her to help save it.
