Sarah Palin says she will not run for president

WASHINGTON (AP) - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said Wednesday she will not run for president, leaving little doubt that the eventual Republican nominee will come from the current field of contenders.

After months of leaving her fans guessing, Palin said in a statement that she and her husband Todd “devote ourselves to God, family and country.” She said her decision maintains that order.

Palin sent the statement to supporters. She told conservative radio host Mark Levin that she would not consider a third party candidacy because it would assure President Barack Obama’s reelection.

Sen. John McCain plucked Palin from relative obscurity in 2008 by naming her as his running mate. She electrified Republican activists for a while, delivering a well-received speech at the GOP national convention. But Palin later seemed overwhelmed by the national spotlight, faltering at times in televised interviews even when asked straightforward questions.

Sarah Palin says she will not run for president


I know Sarah Palin has a lot of fans out there, Palinites, and they are, for the most part, as rabid in their support of Palin as the Paultards are in their support of Ron Paul.

A few days ago there was a rather heated exchange between some folks over a matter as minute as a political poll. The Palinites swarmed the poll exactly the same way the fans of Ron Paul, The Paultards do. The thing is; Palin was NOT a part of the poll, so, the Palinites flooded comments with their Saint Sarah screed.

There is some serious delusion among many on the RIGHT; Weasel Zippers posted a poll HERE and they asked a very simple question: Who’s Your Choice For GOP Nominee? and went on to list the GOP candidates that are running, the ones that are actually IN THE RACE. They have 106 comments on that poll question at last check and somewhere close to HALF of the written comments say PALIN. Yeah, Sarah Palin. Is she a candidate? Is she listed on that poll and I somehow missed it? :?

Comments are inundated with PALIN… You folks DO realize?? She’s NOT in the running… Right??

I had several tell me, SHE IS RUNNING, she just hasn’t announced yet. I was told that I am not paying attention, that if I knew ANYTHING about Sarah Palin I would know, she IS running and will announce soon…a very vague term at best that word soon. :P

Can I call em or what? :P

Palin’s announcement Wednesday was much anticipated but not greatly surprising. Her popularity had plummeted in polls lately, even though she remained a darling to many hard-core conservatives. Some Republicans felt she waited and teased too long about a presidential candidacy. Some remained perplexed by her decision to quit her job as governor with more than a year left in her single term.

Ron Paul and Michele Bachmann remain the darling of many that are assumed to be hard-core conservatives. The ones supporting Paul are presumed to be conservative by the media, real Conservatives know that Ron Paul and his supporters are NOT conservative in any way, but the press is ruling the roost in many quarters.

I know, she’s Sarah Palin, but my readers know, I have NEVER been a fan of Palin and as time progressed I liked her even less. I am glad she’s out, this race has far too much at stake to have a Drama Queen that couldn’t handle being a Governor in the mix.

    That said, there is no discounting her ability to create crowds or raise money for the GOP.

    Christie stepped off first.

    I couldn’t agree with you more, Fred. I even question if Sarah Palin ever had intentions of running, but was rather milking the attention she was getting for all it’s worth. Now that we have that out of the way, maybe we can get on with the business of picking the nominee who will face Obama next year.

  3. Always On Watch says:

    Early on, I was a fan of Sarah Palin.

    I lost that enthusiasm when she resigned her governorship of Alaska — among other things.

    Frankly, I believe that she can serve a good purpose in the political arena, but not as a Presidential candidate.

    Typical popular female … tease, tease, tease.

    I thought she was interesting at first, but after tons of nothing coming out of her, I figured she was just in it for the exposure.


  5. Katie says:

    As I have been saying to those I know who wanted her to run:

    I told you so! Glad this one isn’t in the race.
