(CNN) - Sarah Palin, ending months of speculation, said Wednesday she will not run for president, either as a Republican or third-party candidate.
"This has been prayerfully considered," the former Alaska governor said on the Mark Levin radio program. "I can be on the right path without being a candidate."
Great news. No surprise though. Good riddance and don't EVER enter politics again Sarah.
A Republican with a brain.
I TOLD YOU SO, I TOLD YOU SO!
That's mighty wise of Sarah putting Family before politics. Politics is merely an evolving primitive instinct of man's urge to dominate his fellow man. Family Growth and strength is a far more decent goal in life. See ya in 2016.
She did not have a chance to win anyways she needs to go away
This might be the smartest move she's ever made. But who didn't see this coming a mile away. This woman is all about getting as many 15 minutes of fame as she can.
Ah, let's hope this is the beginning of the end of Sarah's time in the spotlight. Over the last few months, she's really taken a beating in the court of public opinion. Her family's continuous side show of trailer park antics really makes her a laughing stock. Deciding not to run is the first good decision she's made in a long time. And, it's a choice that is best for America too. Now, she can focus on important issues.....like getting Michele Bachmann to join her in retirement.
Too bad, that might have ensured a Obama reelection!
Regardless of my opinion of her abilities, who would vote for her knowing she quit her governor position after only 2 years?
Well, she milked that long enough!!!! We all knew she wouldn't/couldn't run or she would be ripped to shreds. She has messed up in her actions and words....AND she's not that bright....but very pretty.
No. Please. Don't. Come Back. No.
She will never admit to it, but she probably knew she would get tore up in the debates. It would hurt her status as a maverick(tm). She thought Biden was bad, the current guys would chew her up. Its apparent through Bachmann, that just being a pretty face isn't going anywhere.
She quit Alaska governor, for nothing. Good riddence.
She's making millions as a celebrity, why would she take a pay cut to be President?
She'll run in 2016, when it will be a free for all.
Smart decision. I think her moment came & went.
And there was much rejoicing. I think John McCain lost the election with his choice of her as his running mate.
She can stir up SO MUCH MORE controversy WITHOUT running! THE THORN in everyone side that NOW will NEVER go away!
Probably because after her bus tour, she is definitely aware that the majority of Americans view her as a clown! She wouldnt have a snowball's chance in Hades of EVER becoming President of the United States, and SHE KNOWS IT! Now, if Fox would quit paying her to be on TV....
So she finally figured out that she has absolutely no chance of winning... It took her long enough.
A dream come true for every conservative....she would have been the singlemost cause of another Obama landslide.
If she had, and had won the nomination, I would have voted for President Obama.
is this all you got to put up to distract people from occupy wallstreet, not going to work since this lady is not important
Sarah made the right choice to put her family first. Why did she ever think she was qualified to be prez?
This isn't news we already knew that...she was never a serious contender, just wanted the media attention and the money that went with it. Anyone that believed she was going to actually run? Hope you enjoyed her money train...
Sarah Palin's knows her "career" as a political grifter would be over in half an hour of word salad gibberish were she ever to appear on "Meet the Press", "Face the Nation" or "This Week."
she waited till all players were in the pot and decided, she would come in a distant low!
She shd've given the people ( mainly her supporters) more lead instead to declare for another candidate of dragoing them along!
