WASHINGTON (CNN)– The 'First Dude' of Alaska will no longer be working in the oil fields.
The Alaska Dispatch reports Todd Palin has quit his job with BP’s North Slope operation. The newspaper quotes BP Company spokesman Steve Rinehart as saying Palin submitted his resignation last month and officially resigned September 18.
As a production operator, Todd Palin was responsible for management of the oil gathering centers, where oil is gathered from multiple wells.
BP PLC is one of the largest energy companies in the world.
Todd Palin, the "First Dude" to former Governor Sarah Palin, shot to national fame along with his wife when she was named Republican vice presidential nominee. He also professionally races snowmobiles (known in Alaska as “snowmachines) and is a commercial fisherman.
News of his resignation comes about two months after Sarah Palin's resignation from office on July 26.
It must run in the family,,,,,,,,WHO CARES???????
WHY NOT QUIT? TODD's WIFE HAS NOW HIT THE BIG TIMES . . .
With Sarah's million dollar tell-all book deal and with her closed-door speaking engagements as was in China last month; why not quit slopping around BP's oil barrels. There is talk Sarah will get a radio talk show or a regular spot on cable. They're rich now. ;-) LOL!
Why not? MOMMA GOT PAID !! I mean really, CNN. Todd is not that important to put him on the ticker. I mean REALLY! Of course he is going to quit, they are RICH now.
It appears as though resigning runs in the family. She is defintely presidential material. She'll be the one to cut and run as soon as things get tough.
Is anyone actually surprised by this???????? Now that he has quit his job, maybe someone will be home caring for those kids. You can bet your bippy it won't be Sarah!!!!!!!
Good move Todd. Why toil 9:00 to 5:00 when the old lady is making major dough writting books, and speaking around the world ?
I would resign too, and take care of the kids and grand kid.
I have nothing bad to say about Todd Palin and he should not be put into the political arguement. Sarah on the other hand.....
Quitting jobs must run in the family.
Gosh, could it be that they are getting rich on her income from her book?
Both Mom and Pop quitting their jobs for no reason – whoo hoo – what stability!
ok here it comes: now this story from CNN is going to be flooded be liberal lefties, sarcastically screaming "wow, i'm SO suprised that another Palin quit their job, lol, lmao, republicans are idiots, lmao, lmao"
well, newflash, nobody named Palin is going to lead the GOP in 2012 when Obama is crushed under his own bad policies and overall weak character and moral fiber.
Wow! The Palins have set a wonderful example for their children- JUST QUIT!
No sense working when the Little Woman can make millions to free up your time for academic endeavors like fishing and snowmachining.
Must be nice to be rich.
His job is his business, why is this newsworthy?
Monkey see, monkey do. One quits, the other quits. Why is this not surprising. While the rest of America goes to work everyday actually working on the problems this country faces instead of fear mongering them.
Levi was right it appears.............Househusband?
Great move, why toil if ur old lady's making millions.It's time to retire Dodd.What's better than being fed or feeding off ur woman
He's even less important than his wife. This is becoming the National Enquirer. Maybe they'll collect welfare, it's only socialist when it's someone else, right?
Great. This means he will have time to promote Alaska's seccession.
Obama crushed in 2012?
How on Earth can a party with 20% popularity 'crush' a president who puts America and Americans first?
Ugh. I love Sara Palin but this is not newsworthy.
New Alaska State Nickname: The Quitter State.
Just who has been raising these childlren? It's obvious that these children are not being raised in a "normal" family environment. The mother is never (or seldom ever) home and the father was not a stay at home dad.
My prediction–Todd will be joining Sarah on the book promo tour. It's all about Sarah and money. Kids can always use Twitter to communicate with their parents.
Sooooo obvious as to why.....
America loves a good soap....and believe that it is reality.
