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
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.

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.
