Governor Palin Announces She’s Not Runnig

Governor Palin has announced that she will not run for president. I’ll have more about this later, in the meantime here is her interview with Mark Levin


Governor Palin appeared on Greta tonight:

I apologize to those whom are disappointed in this decision, I’ve been hearing from them in the last couple of hours, but I believe that, they, when they take a step back, will understand why the decision was made and understand that, really, you don’t need a title to make a difference in this country. I think that I am proof of that and we together united can surly help as a team get this country back on the right track.


She also released the following video:


Here is her full statement:

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 nation’s 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 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 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. Let’s unite to restore this country!

God bless America.

– Sarah Palin


I know many of you are disappointed and that’s understandable. I would just say this, other than a politician, Governor Palin is also a mother, a wife and a grandmother. We sometimes forget that she’s a human being who has feelings.  With all the trash and crap she’s been taking it is amazing that she’s still standing. Had she decided to run those attacks would have come in one a second.  No human being should have to take it. Even thick skin if you hammer it long enough it breaks, Governor Palin was just not ready to have her skin shattered to pieces.

So guys, even though you are disappointed, give the women a break. Now is the time to move on and let the Governor Palin enjoy a well deserved peaceful life as a private citizen.

  • It’s disappointing, saddening even, but not surprising. Once the “deadline” to announce slipped from August to September and into October, I had a feeling this was coming. I still maintain she’d make an excellent president, but that will have to be… someday. Now it’s time to look at who is running, and who among them makes the best choice. In the meantime, I’d suggest that Gov. Palin would make an excellent Interior Secretary in the next administration.

    Do you think that the Sarah movement should have a serious discussion about the future path, given her “disappointing” (to most of us) choice to not run? It seems to me that the group of people that coalesced around the idea that Sarah should be our next POTUS should not be relegated to simply following Sarah as she decides what she does with her life.

    I always wonder about people who cannot accept criticism yet who expect the people to accept their next set of marching orders even though there was no first set of marching orders. Whether Sarah is still a viable force for good in American politics is an unsettled question/issue, especially in light of the truth that she sought no counsel from the great mass of people who followed her and supported her.

    I am a tea party organizer (one of six) of Pierce County Tea Party (WA). I also participate in Tea Party Patriots which you may or may not know is an umbrella organization that speaks to Congress on behalf of its member tea parties. The spokespeople of TPP would never speak their own minds when doing their jobs – they speak only what the member orgs tell them to speak. Every major issue is put to a vote of the members and thus a representative view is discerned and made public.

    Sarah Palin made an awful lot of money and acquired a huge army of supporters based primarily on the hope/desire that she would be our next POTUS. I find it impossible to conceive that she was unaware of why people were buying her books and coming to hear her speak. Assuming that to be true, I believe she completely flubbed the transmitting of her decision not to run.

    Whether I’m right or wrong, it is an important subject to discuss as the group of Palin supporters decides what to do going forward. Sadly, it seems that whoever is in charge of since you left has already made a decision regarding what course to take and it doesn’t matter whether there is a group consensus or not. I went to post a response to a comment responding to me and got a banned message.

    I am of the view that Sarah Palin has forfeited any right/privilege to assume the following she previously enjoyed, due to the lame (in my opinion) manner in which she gave her decision to the world. Had she asked (or anyone on her behalf asked) how to do it, the response from an objective observer would have been not to burn bridges and to reward those who volunteered their time and money by giving it to them first.

    Most importantly, Sarah seems to think her decision is no big deal but I’m here on the ground and I can tell you it is about the biggest deal since Jugears was elected. People are devastated. Many of them feel betrayed and/or used. The attacks that were undeserved will not go away – rather they will now be focused on Sarah’s unwillingness to subject herself to the same scrutiny she applies to other candidates and the president himself. This meme will be used to marginalize or defang every political opinion she gives in the future. There are undecided voters out there who will not be positively influenced by Sarah supporting a candidate, for fear that any candidate so endorsed by her will share her faults (real or imagined).

    To pretend that this is not a political reality (and there are others) is not just short-sighted but arrogant. I think Sarah got lousy advice on this whole deal, probably because she uses only her family or close circle for advice. Regardless, the question going forward is whether an assembled group of committed supporters is going to be led down a path that requires all of them to lie to themselves that Sarah’s decision was no big deal.

    I would have sent this missive to C4p but their arrogance at not even chastising me on the thread or with a private email telling me of my offense before tossing me off the train forfeits any concern I have for them. But I do care about the little peeps and I think they are entitled to better than meet-the-new-boss.

    As I said, I am active in the tea party movement which predates my participation in the Sarah 2012 movement. When people come to me and ask me what I think, what do you think I should tell them? Should I tell them the truth as I see it or should I tell them that they’ll have to decide for themselves whether to continue to “follow” Sarah? I say “follow” because my treatment by c4p shows me that this is much less about what’s good for America and electing good leaders and much more about (it seems) making/keeping a cult army together and purging the heretics lest they poison the minds of the sheeple.

    Anyway, I wish you were still there and that’s not just a shameless suckup but the truth. I wish you well and should you care to discourse, my email is pgroup at blarg dot net

    Just want to express my appreciation of your activities in support of C4P and hope you will continue to support the goals of the Sarah Palin movement.

    Although I’m sure you understand my previous comment, I will tell you now that the opinions in my circle are running at least 2-1 against Sarah Palin. If the movement is called or describes itself as the Sarah Palin movement, most of the people who are expressing opinions to me will not participate in it.

    Try to understand, Sarah flubbed TWO exit speeches. The quitter meme is now a tattoo. That’s what I’m hearing.
