Sarah Palin Tells Supporters She Will Not Run for President

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

    Although some in the Republican party wanted Palin to run, it is wiser at this time not too! WHY? To many canidates make it easier dor Obama to be handed a second term on a silver platter.

    • sonny

      The 2012 election should not even be a contest…but it will simply b/c there are too many idiots in the country that still support him. That is nothing short of INSANE
      but it describes obama supporters.

      • Abe Lincoln

        Dear Sonny: You are correct! However, it is a contest so one must adapt to the game and play the game to win! Also, you are correct in your analogy of “insane” for Obama supporters. Some tell me, Pinncoho is doing a good job. WHAT? On what planet! Wait till my fine Jewish freinds who are typically Democrat, realize Muslim Man is selling them out to Palestine through the U. N. Now that’s, INSANE!

        • Shel Rama

          Can’t Obama supporters be summarized as follows:
          1)Wealthy and not so wealthy homosexuals.
          2)Wealthy hollywood liberals
          3) Unions
          4)Illegal immigrants
          5)People on welfare
          6)Senior citizens but they will not make that mistake again
          7)Machine politicians in most major cities of the U.S.
          8)Minorities who comprise less than 20% of the US population
          9)Government employees who want to keep their ritzy jobs
          10)Young people who do not know economics and politics

          • Abe Lincoln

            Dear Shel: Yes, among others!

          • jacy

            You seem to have nailed it on the head!!! Some fools do not realize that eventually other people’s money runs out. They should look at Greece.

          • armyvet

            Senior citizens in my area never have, still do not support Obama, myself included! Did not vote for him, opposed him from the time he began his campaign! I despise all his programs, including Obamacare!

        • Ray Sarchet

          I presently (subject to change) hope that Herman gets the nomination and I presently favor Sarah as an excellent VP.
          There are still a lot of bridges to cross. The left-wing anti-Christians have been raping Sarah since 2008.

          The anti-America left have a lot of trump cards up their sleeves.
          They want Communism to take over America and there are
          enough takers, (single moms, welfare recipients, minorities,
          socialists, union members, etc.) that want to vote for OB or have
          been told to vote for him, its going to be very tough to get his
          Anti-American Communist ass out of there. Please someone tell me why so many Jews support him??? He is anti-Jewish!!

          • jacy

            I agree Ray – Herman Cain is the only one out there that I believe is an honest conservative – he is a businessman with excellent credentials and smart enought and honest enough to admit what he doesn’t know. Yes, it is going to take everyone of us who believe in Conservatism and who can see what this Marxist Muslim is doing to this
            nation. Another four years of this anti-American clown will enslave all of us. It is difficult for me to understand why anyone in this country wants to support failure. What people need to understand is George Soros, who sold his own people, the Jews, out to the Nazi’s, is Obama’s financier and hisi puppeteer…and he has put billions behind the Usurper. We don’t even have a Congress nor the Supreme Court who has the cajones to investigate his constitutional eligibility…or his probable fake birth certificate. When someone, anyone, hides all of their records and pays lawyers 2 million dollars to do so, don’t you ask “WHY?” If you have nothing to hide why hide? We know most everything about past presidents – no one knows anything about the Obamas!!!

          • Abe Lincoln

            Dear Ray Sarchet: Its a mystery to me! If I were Jewish, would not vote for this Muslim who is trying to giive away Israels homeland!

        • Carol McSwain

          Yes, I believe that BO has revealed how he really feels about the Jewish voters who supported this wicked man and helped him win our White House. Hopefully, they have been enlightened over the last several months with his demands that Israel go back to its indefensible pre-1967 borders. Just by the fact that he encouraged all the surrounding countries to demand that their governments be toppled, he has allowed the fulfillment of the Psalms 83 prophecy! This is a wicked man and must not be allowed to live in our White House another 4 years. November 2012 cannot come soon enough for this woman.

          • Abe Lincoln

            Dear Carol McSwain: I am only allowed to point citizens in the right direction to find out the truth about Obama. To elaborate more would comprise my sources. Jewish citizens who are typically Democrat have elected the Muslim who is working hard to allow Palestine to send them to thier ow death. What is worse is that most Jewish people will vote for him again. Now how smart is that?

        • daves

          I wonder what she is going to do with all the campaign contributions she received? Hmmm.

          • Abe Lincoln

            Dear Daves: Please elaborate or prove she has taken campaign contributions. If she did, don’t you think the Media would have been on it, like stink to a fly?

          • JRRS

            She had no campaign, therefore, no funds. Contributions were made to Sarah PAC, but those are not covered by election law and are not her’s personally. She was not a psrt of the movie production and will not receive any money it may generate.

          • Abe Lincoln

            Dear JRRS: You win todays gold star! No campaign, therefore no campaign money!

        • White and proud!

          And JEWS!!!

    • Robert from Texas

      Not this time!!

      • Robert from Texas

        Meaning Palin running would b a 2nd term for ovomit.

        • Abe Lincoln

          Dear Robert: NO! In order to win the Presidency, MONEY is the key. No ifs, ands or butts! When there are to many canidates
          “running” the money is spread thinner. EXAMPLE: Michelle Bachman came out of the gate strong at first. Now her campaign “may” fold due to lack of big money coming in. By having ony three canidates running, each has better chance needed to raise the millions needed to win. This has nothing to do with Sarah but instead defeating Obama and isn’t that what America wants/needs at this time?

          • Abe Lincoln

            Dear Robert: ADDENDUM: Please read where top “three” canidates need to run! Want to get Obama out? How? MONEY, MONEY, MONEY! Democrat party spent around 883 million first time! Forget gender or canidate, think MONEY!

          • Carmelo Junior

            Bachmann might resurge because this hack Palin is out. Bachmann could take her homestate Iowa and take it to SC. Cain, Perry and Romney are moderate clowns.

        • Wayne

          I would vote for Sarah Palin over all those running on the Republican ticket. I think she is an honest person with a lot of principles and love for our country. Maybe people do not want honest politicians anymore. I am a proud American with a sound mind. I can’t figure out why 53 percent of the people would vote for an idiot like Communist Obama; a man that can’t be trusted with handling the economics, and the National debt. It is such a shame that anyone could vote for a man that does not even have a valid BC and who was an associate with Bill Ayers who bombed Federal Buildings in the late 60’s early 70’s. Plus he sit in a church for nearly 20 years where the pastor blasphemed the United States. This was well know if you watch Fox New Channel. In my opinion, those 53 percent of folks who voted for this Communist are either stupid, didn’t do their homework, or were easily snowed by Obama’s hot air that he threw around. Oh well! Pastor Jim Jones who had nealy 1000 people commit suicide over in Guyanna had a gift of gab too and the people fell for him also.

        • m

          I agree

    • WARLOC

      No LIFE IS A BITCH NEVER VOTE FOR ONE :)

      • Anonymous

        And just what do you mean by your remark?! Do you think that bastard we have in there now is any better?! You’d better think twice before posting something stupid like that again!

        • daves

          Or what?

          Yes I absolutely think President Obama is 10 times the President than Sarah Palin could ever be.

          • JRR

            If you want a socialist government in place of the constitutional republic we have, you are right. If not, you are dead wrong. BHO is committed to radical socialism as preached by Saul Alinsky.

          • Wayne

            Oh! I see, we have another Communist on here. I’ll take Sarah Palin. You have been under rock too long.

          • Abe Lincoln

            Dear Daves: Iy is well known beofre Obama’s Presidency ends, Pinnocho will go down as the worst President in our Nations history. And PLEASE for you out there not versed in Politial Science, Economics or Government; “DO NOT” even try to label me a Racist. Instead, go to Harvard and earn your Bachelors and Masters in Government and Economics.

          • JRRS

            Only if you want to become socialist state and give up all the freedoms and quality of life you have now under our constitutional Republic.

          • SHIRLEY

            THERE IS A SAYING OUT THERE AND IT PROVES ITS SELF EVERY TIME A LIBERAL LIKE YOU OPENS THEIR MOUTH “LIBERALISM IS A MENTAL DISEASE””””HITS THE SPOT IN EVERY CASE

    • http://Newwavecomm.net Betty

      I really like Palin and she would have made a great president. However Palin needs to be in the next presidents Energy program. For all of those who do not know what this lady did for Alaska they should read up on how she ended so much corruption and there are 3 of those that she took down are still in prison. This lady knows what corruption is all about. SHE PUT A STOP TO IT AND THOSE GUILTY ONES ARE NOW IN PRISON. She is one lady that will not take no for an answer, if they are guilty they must be removed and she makes sure of just that.. Good luck to Palin in her next efforts to help get American out of the Obama clutches and that includes Obamas Administration of all puppets….. Betty

      • jacy

        I agree Betty. Sarah Palin accomplished more in her 18 months as Governor of Alaska than any other Gov. She took on the big oil companies and won – she put some of the Corrupt Bastards club in orange jump suits. Sarah has been horrendously denigrated by the evil lying media and the Democrats, yet she has never faltered in her beliefs in the Constitution, God, country and family. I hope she will continue in speaking out against the evils now perpertrated on this nation by the current administration. I pray that those fools who voted for this Marxist Muslim who thrilled them with Hope and Change come to their senses and realize another four years of Obama we will all end up enslaved. I believe most of these fools are entitlement (welfare for those in Rio Linda) receivers who do not realize that you never get a payroll check from a poor person or that other people’s money soon runs out.

      • daves

        Over the opposition of oil companies, Republican Gov. Sarah Palin and Alaska’s Legislature in 2007 approved a major increase in taxes on the oil industry — a step that has generated stunning new wealth for the state as oil prices soared. …
        BP Alaska, which runs Prudhoe Bay, said earlier this year that it had delayed the development in the western region of the North Slope as a result of the tax. ConocoPhillips cited the same reason for scrapping a $300 million refinery project.
        “What the tax has done is take away all the upside,” said Doug Suttles, president of BP Alaska. The U.K.-based oil company paid more than $500 million in taxes to Alaska last quarter — far more than it earned in profits from Alaskan oil, according to Suttles.
        Investment dollars are flowing instead to places that have a better return, like the massive deep-water projects offshore in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, where ConocoPhillips said the government take equals less than 50 percent of the barrel.

        • Abe Lincoln

          Dear Daves: This should show you Democracts once and for all; taxes kill job growth, slow Economic recovery, raise prices, keep unemployment high, etc. See you learned something today! Make sure to waste your vote for Obama and we will see a further slide down the slippery slope to the real possibilty of a Global DEPRESSION. That’s right Daves, with a D not a R. Even helicopter Ben Bernecke, FED Chairman expressed geniune concern that the current Economy is on thin ice and the ice is melting. Mean while, Erkel is trying to spend more money on jobs that do not exist and you guessed it, are you ready? Raise TAXES! Now please re-tell our distinguished readers where Obama is: 10 times the President Sarah Palin would ever be!

      • oldplott

        I think Palin would make a great president,but she says NO.I can live with that.I do believe she will make a great cabinet member.Dept.of energy,interior,open up the land for drilling and mining..

    • Sanderson

      Thank you, baby Jesus for giving Palin wise counsel and telling her NOT to run for president. Just what America does NOT need is a spoiled, reality-tv-show whiner who quit her governor job. NO QUITTERS and NO WHINERS should be president, including the current and temporary resident of the White House.

      • Chuck

        Referesh my memory, Sanderson, what job was it you gave up to be a full time bigot on this blog?

  • Abe Lincoln

    If those who wish for a Obama defeat, now is the time to narrow the field down to the strongest top three canidates to debte each other so Country has easier choice to see “who” they want to lead us out of this financial insanity. Also, by only having three canidates, it will be easier for the three to raise serious money needed to go up againist Obama. Obama insiders openly admit they plan to raise one billion dollars for re-election campaign.

    • Robert from Texas

      Good post!!

    • Insurgent

      We need a candidate that is willing to serve the American taxpayer and work for the good of the country. We do not need another lying, professional politician; that is why this country is in the toilet.
      Washington, DC is America’s cesspool for liars, whores, and thieves!!!!

      • Wayne

        Insurgent, one of those folks would have been Sarah Palin. She is a great American who loves this country. I was hoping she would run. She has the values that all our politician should have and don’t have; honesty, and principles.

        • Insurgent

          It appears as though Sarah Palin is all about taking care of Sarah Palin and family.

          • jb80538

            ANd is that a problem? I think it’s honorable to want to take care of family.

          • Abe Lincoln

            Dear Insurgent: My insiders tell me is was “NOT” all about taking care of Sarah and family! You have to remember, in winning an election; there are many factors to be weighed. Going out on a limb, but willing to say; Sarah evualted all these factors and made the choice not to run!

          • Chuck

            You didn’t receive the threats she and her family did, Bozo.

          • Abe Lincoln

            Dear Chuck: Not only threats but unwarranted degrading of her and her family!

          • SHIRLEY

            INSURGANT SO………I ALWAYS THOUGHT FIRST OF MY FAMILY ALSO SHE ALSO HIGHLY REGUARDS HER OTHER FAMILY THAT IS THE CITIZENS OF THIS GREAT NATION………..NOT LIKE THE “DOWN WITH AMERICA INSULT WE HAVE THERE NOW……….HOW ANY OF YOU OUT THERE CAN NOT SEE WHAT THIS MAN HAS DONE TO THE COUNTRY…………AND IS FAST MODE TO FINISH US OFF BEFORE WE KICK HIS SORRY A– OUT THE DOOR ……BETTER WAKE UP AND SMELL THE STINK….

        • Abe Lincoln

          Dear Wayne: Yes, she could have been. However, Sarah made the decision not to run and we have to respect “HER” decision!

          • Wayne

            I do agree with her wishes, Abe. I am sure she weighed all her options before she dropped out of the race. The corrupt press had beaten her down. I hate to see this happen to anyone.

      • http://none papy

        Wow!!!! How right you are,Insurgent,Our elected officels Have built themselves a gravy train, With tax payers money,And any New comers that come in better follow the rules,and keep thier mouths shut, if they want to stay. an example would be John Kacik,and bono,Who they killed, This is the mess we are in,Nothing will change in our country Until we can take these Perks away from the thieves.

      • jacy

        We need a good housecleaning in Wash. D.C. We have a corrupt congress save a few. Congress was complicit in our getting this incompetent jerk as president because they did not vet him – nor check his constitutional eligibility despite being warned that he was not eligibile. The Supreme court is complicit because they refuse to take any case that has to do with Obama’s eligibility. The other problem is the giant welfare scheme we have and the large percentage of people who don’t want to work and believe in only government support. As far as I am concerned the only true believer in the constitution, a real conservative, a non-politician is Herman Cain. I don’t trust Romney or Perry – Newt has a great contract for America, but too much baggage as president – but as a VP would be great. Cain/Newt. We need our borders closed. Any president who sues a state (Arizona) for trying to protect its people; Fast and Furious (which we all know Obama’s dirty hands were in that) the Solyndra deal and probably many more. I don’t think a segment of American’s realize this country is broke. A Donald Trump said the other day – this is a poor country. What a change this is for the greatest and most powerful nation in this country. Obama blames everyone but himself. He won the presidency because idiots did not bother to research or vet this man and voted because he was Black or because they believed in handouts – welfare. Remember the tape where a woman said Obama was going to pay her mortgage? This is the mindset of many people and its due to all the entitlements Democrats have primarily been responsible for. If Obamacare is not repealed, these people do not know what is in store for them – the price, not only in dollars but in personal care allowing someone else to decide whether or not you are eligibile for the medical procedure. It will largely affect disabled and seniors. You need to read the bill (which was passed before it was read)…i.e. the treasonous Pelosi!

    • Ray Sarchet

      Your three suggests Cain, Perry and Romney!? Sorry, Romney and Perry are mirror
      images of McCain. “Born to Lose!”
      Do not let the leftist media pick a candidate who will pretend to run but will not win!!!!
      If you pick either Romney or Perry you will fix the race in favor of OB.

    • Clod McGoo

      Abe, I agree and the sooner we narrow it down to only one candidate the better off we will be. Palin did a great service to her party by dropping out. I hope the final candidate finds her a place to serve. After reading Cain’s resume’ he’s my man for the WH. It’s great to have a sound business man and a non-politation as President and I love his 9-9-9 plan.

      • Abe Lincoln

        Dear Clod McGoo: My God, someone who understands the “game!” For those who DO NOT understand the “game” go to my post about Nixon and Reagan. It will explian when to run and when not to run in the “game!”

      • Abe Lincoln

        Dear Clod McGoo: In agreement with you. 999 is better than current 666!

        • Red

          You want to pay 9% on everything you purchase, plus state and local sales tax, and 9% on every dollar you earn with no deductions!? In other words, you want your taxes to increase. You and Warren Buffett must drink the same KoolAide. You must have a lot of extra cash laying around that you can’t seem to find a place for. Why don’t you join the national association for people who have cotton, hay, seed, and rags in place of brains.

          • Abe Lincoln

            Dear Red: Wouldn’t it be wiser to know we are paying a “flat” 9% tax instead of current 1% here and 2% there? I ama Conserative Republican not a Democrat like Warren Buffett. If I ever do decide to drink Kool-Aid it won’t be red! No extra cash laying around. Flat tax would allow to budget money better. Tried to join National Association for people who have cotton, hay, seed, and rags in place of brains but was rejected due to ties to Republican party. That saddens me, was hoping to land part in the Wizard of Oz. Congratulations are in order for you though, for landing lead role. Believe you will make a good Dorothy! Now if you will excuse me, “its off to see the Wizard!” Going to petition the great Oz that people here research facts before typing!

          • Abe Lincoln

            Dear Red: Most Americans do not know this yet but look up HR4646. What is it? A Hidden tax Obama has slid through where everyone that has a bank account will charged 1% on ALL bank transactions. Deposit your paycheck, 1%, withdraw money 1%, switch money from checking to savings 1%. When will it start? This November 2011. Still think a “FLAT” 9% is a bad idea or are you ready for other little 1% here and 2% there taxes? By the way, just tasted “red” Kool-Aid and it was terrible like your anaology!

  • Abe Lincoln

    Want to really “chap” a Democrat? Make Sarah Palin the next Secretary of State. Why? Republicans could put her on television every day with updates. Imagine the Palin haters who would be subjected to an intelligent, cheerful smile every day?

    • Robert from Texas

      lmao!!!! Nasty!!!! (However; we would have to listen 2 that squeaky voice also :-)

      • Abe Lincoln

        Dear Robert: Just think, Democrats would report to the Insane institions in mass numbers and we could reduce the number of crazy people walking around making Amercia safer.

      • Wayne

        Robert, you are looking at a person for all the wrong reasons. Shame on you. I look for quality in a person, not how they talk, or look. Maybe this is why we are getting folks like Communist Obama and the Democratic Socialist in our government.

        • Abe Lincoln

          Dear Wayne: 99 per cent of the time I quote facts. 1 per cent of the time add harmless humor to break up the routine. Apoligizes are in order if I offended you or anyone else. There is a wise saying: “Never take yourself so serious. You are not that important!” Also, “Always welcome a person who can laugh at themselves!” These two quotes allow oneself to ebb and flow with the tide of life!

          • Wayne

            Abe, I am a mild mannered type of person who agrees to disagree. You did not offend me in any way. I am sorry if you took it that way. I highly respect other peoples opinions even if they do not agree with mine. I do like to discuss either, why I like, or dislike, a political candidate. I can give many reasons why I dislike Obama. But I believe you feel the same way also.

    • Sanderson

      INTELLIGENT? There is nothing intelligent about Palin. She can barely answer questions of the media with any kind of intelligence and worldly comprehension. She would be a disaster as secretary of state! Come on, folks. We have one mistake in the White House, let’s avoid that this next time and find someone who will lead the ENTIRE country, not one party at the exclusion of the other. UNITED States, not Republicans, Tea Party, Democrats and Lefts. UNITED.

      She quit the job the people elected her to do. What is wrong with you people who ignore the truth and continue to support this person? This crap about her family is just that: CRAP. She flies around the country, speaking, and where is her family? Come on, she’s another lying politician who is into this job for the money, fame and applause. She left Alaska to make money. Plain and simple. She wanted money.

      • Bill

        When did you make your first million, Sanderson? How many people tune in to see you on FOX, CNN, MSNBC , or your local TV station? When were you Governor of your state, or Mayor of you town. When is your nect book coming out?

      • Wayne

        Sanderson, Obama is not very intelligent either. Especially when he said he visited 57 states and had one more to go. A kid in grammer school would have known that we only have 50 states in this country. If you had read Sarah Palin’s book you would have known that she had a very good reason to quit being a governor. If the Democrats had vetted Obama, or had the majority of people known what Obama was like, he would have never been elected president. I feel I am a good judge of character. Obama does not impress me with his lies and his ideology.

      • Abe Lincoln

        Dear Sanderson: Many Politians have left the Governership, Senate, Congress and other Politial positions. No big whoop! Usually they are business related to further thier “own” political agenda. I can name one that did that. Obama! So why crawl up the backside and be the Doctor in charge of giving Sarah Palin a colonosphy. Unless of course you are into that sort of thing!

        • Abe Lincoln

          Dear Sanderson: That is the difference between a Republican and a Democrat. A Republican will want to earn the money. A Democrat will want to be handed the money! And you fault Sarah Palin for this phisolosphy?

            Dear Wayne: Chose the pen-name of Abe Lincoln becuase he had the back bone to tell Americans the truth, no matter how bitter the pill tasted. I “NEVER” want to tell anyone how to think. Instead, want to point readers to where they can find the truth. This way, they can read for themselves and make their own decisions and or conclusions about current issues. Call me crazy, but various supposedly “respected” news agencies DID NOT see it that way!

      Abe Lincoln, I like a man that tells the truth. My Dad used to tell me when I was a youngster growing up that he hated a liar more than a thief. His reasoning was you could put a thief in jail, but what can you do with a liar? I think he had some merit in making that statement. I am from the old school. I had a Father that taught his children how to do hard work and taught us principles while we were growing up. I’ll bet you had great parents that taught you those same values also.

      • Abe Lincoln

        Dear Wayne: And have the scars to prove it! My Father raised me to tell the truth no matter whose feathers get ruffled!

    Liberals are by nature liars. The nature of their beliefs drives and sustains this tendency.

    The liberal philosophies exhibited by many disconsolate, deluded individuals in the U.S.A and around the world are not viable in reality. I truly wish these philosophies were innocuous in nature; however, they are quite detrimental to the well being of the various peoples of the world. There are three reasons that liberals persist in their delusions despite said philosophies obvious detriment to the people of the world: ignorance, apathy, and greed.

    Many liberals are usually well meaning but highly analphabetic cretins who have been deluded into following unsound philosophies by their peers. The left is comprised of people of questionable intellect and little or no ability to elevate themselves above the mindless droning of the masses.
    Liberals practice beliefs and behaviors that are harmful to themselves and others. They do this knowingly but they simply do not care that their actions are harmful as long as they are allowed instant gratification of whatever they are feeling at the moment.

    The upper liberal echelon consists of malicious power seekers who prey on the weak and ignorant while spreading their destructive filth for the sole purposes of prolonging their pathetic grasp on political power.

    Regardless of whether a leftist is driven by ignorance, apathy, or greed, they all have one thing in common: they lie. The ignorant liberal lies either out of ignorance or to preserve self-delusional beliefs; the apathetic leftist lies to excuse his lifestyle; and the malicious progressive leader lies to keep his power base apathetic and ignorant.

      Zac: Your blog is great and needs to be repeated in every blog on every website. The idiots who voted for this incompetent, inexperienced Muslim Marxist who has implemented failure, insolventcy, socialism, Marxism, need to read it. Maybe something will connect. I cannot in my wildest imagination understand how people can vote for failure. He has had three years – yet he still blames Bush. While I certainly did not approve of some of what Bush did, he was an American through and through. He did protect us in national security – but now we are vulnerable to terrorists. Obama takes credit for the deaths of Osama bin laden and Al-Awaki yet that we set up by the Bush administration and the CIA. Obama bowed to the Saudi King because the Saudi’s contributed to Harvard in exchange for Obama’s education in the amount of 20 Million dollars. That’s one reason Obama won’t release all of his records.

    OBAMA: AMERICAS PLAGUE

    A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.

    • Carmelo Junior

      Now Palin shows he true colors and she will support a RINO like Romney or Perry.
      Goddam Sarah Palin!!

      • Norma

        Sarah Palin is a good, solid American (more than most) who loves America, and makes up her own mind, and I trust her implicitly. Much more than some of these arrogant ignorant slobs who think they know something, but don’t, who speak here! She is a Christian mother who puts her family first. I think she knew that she would be criticized whatever she decided to do; it’s kind of like “damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.” She knows it’s more important to please God than man. So even though she has my vote, I accept her decision as the right one. These mockers will fade away and will be forgotten generally. But she can do much good by using her expertize to help us choose the right candidate with her advice. (She’s not going away, thank goodness, and she will have her following by those who trusted her in the beginning. A good example for us all.) We admire her for trusting God for her decisions. So, Sarah, I am behind your wise decisions; I trust your words. Don’t let idiots take you away from the job that God has for you. I look for you to be called to greater things in the future. After some of these people dissolve into the woodwork, your prayers will be answered in the right order. I know you care about your family, and rightly so. May God bless you and your family, and keep guiding you. And God bless our country! We always need patriots like you. Don’t abandon the American people!

          Amen Norma, It is so good to see that there are still some right minded, patriotic Americans that still love this country as I do. Good post and God willing we will rid this country of the trash in the White House, although I really think he should be impeached before the election!!

If numbers do not add up, you do not run! Sad but true!!!

        Who is she supporting? She distinctly said she would support conservatism and distinctly did not mention a name. You are a hateful soul.

      • Abe Lincoln

        Dear Carmelo: There are many who are disaapointed that Sarah Palin choose not to run. Please allow me to give you an insight and this is a true story. Two Men wanted to run for President. Nixon and Reagan. Reagan backed off and let Nixon run forst and Nixon lost to Kennedy. Second time Nixon won. Later, Reagan ran and won. AGAIN, there are many factors to not only running but more importantly winning! So, Palin does not suck but instead is just positioning herself for a later time.

        • Carmelo Junior

          Abe

          Nixon and Reagan both RAN. Palin quit before even running. Sure she had 12 millions in the bank already so she does not cares. She laughs with Greta and step on her millions of supporters that kept waiting for her. That sucks.

          • Abe Lincoln

            Dear Carmelo: Most people who run for President have millons in the bank. A mute point my fellow debator. OK, want me to clue you in? Sarah held off on announcing to keep Democrats running for cover. Think of Politics as a high stake poker game. Do you tell your opponent you have four aces and a duce, when duces are a wild card? No, you keep them guessing! Why? Because it is a mental mind game to out wit your opponent. Look how much time she made the Media focus on her instead of Obama. This proves beyond a shadow of a doubt; she “is” looking out for Americans. She kept left wing Media on their toes for three years. Would like to see any other American subject themsleves and their family to undue insults from these news organizations. Carmelo, I understand your frustration. Ran many campaigns for Judges, Mayors, Senate and Congress. It can eat at your soul when “your” canidate doesn’t run or cross the finish line. Believe me, Sarah Palin is a smart Lady and this is why the Press goes after her like a rapid dog. Am going out on a limb but feel she will return and when she does, she will cross the finish line with flying colors!

            She never intended to run for president, just getting our las penny.

I see Sarah Palin as a positive force. Some one who has good quality, loyal to her family and country. I feel she would make a great president and serve the country well, not just a few selected people like Obama is doing. Obama has divided this country when he promised to unite the country.. Have you been watching too much NBC or MSNBC? I am serious about this!!!! I see a good quality in Mrs. Palin. I guess we can agree to disagree, however.

    • Clod McGoo

      Carmelo…I wrote an open letter to BO titled “The Chief” Perhaps you should read it.
      To the “Chief” (From Psalm 109)
      Because you have persecuted US we have became a reproach to the whole world: They have looked upon US and shake their heads. You have rewarded US with evil instead of good and hated US. You are a wicked man and Satan stands at your right hand. Psalm 109 continues to say that you shall be judged and condemned to a point where even your prayer will become sin. “Let your days be few; and let another take your office. Let your children be fatherless, and your wife a widow. Let your children be continually vagabonds, and beg.”
      However, there is good news for you. There are four things God wants you to know:
      1) You need to be saved. Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” John 3:3 Jesus said, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Romans 6:23a “For the wages of sin is death–”
      2) You cannot save yourself. Titus 3:5 “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy he saved us–” Ephesians 2:8,9 “For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God, Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
      3) God has provided for your salvation. John 3:16,17 “For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.” John 10:28 “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” John 11:25 “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever lives and believes in me shall never die.”
      4) You must receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. Acts 16:31 “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved.” John 1:12 “But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.”
      The Lord Jesus Christ was the only perfect sacrifice for sin because He had no sin of His own. When He died, He paid your penalty for your sin. He loves you and He wants you to be one of His children. If you would, right now, just bow your head and in your own words, tell God that you want to be saved from the penalty of your sin and you want His free gift of eternal life.
      I did that when I was eight years old, (68 years ago) and He saved me, gave me eternal life and has led me ever since. He said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
      In addition to the above scripture verses let me suggest that you read the first three chapters of John and the first chapter of Romans. The first three chapters of John describe who God is and what He has done for us. The first chapter of Romans describes what mankind has done and what God thinks of us.

      zac, hat was certainly a very good sign that he was not going to Pledge Allegiance to our flag. Where were the idiots who voted for him when this was all going on? They certainly did not do an ounce of home work. In fact all they had to do is to watch Bill Oreilly, Sean Hannity and Gretchen on Fox News and they wouldn’t even have to leave their house to see that they were voting for an idiot that did’t have any love for this Christian Nation. By Obama not knowing how many states there were in this country should have raised a red flag. All the signs were there and the poeple who voted for this Communist did not see them. Wake up, Obama lovers, and see what this man is doing to our country. I personally don’t want to live under Shiria Law, or under a Communist Nation. Obviously, this would curtail the advancements that this country has made over the last 200 years. Do you suppose Orville and Wilbur could have invented the airplane under a Communist Country? Would Steve Jobs and Bill Gates had been free to use their talent to further the computer age under Communism? Our country is less that 250 years old and look at all the advancements we have made in such a short time. We have made more advancements than all the other countries that are thousands of years old. Now our country is sharing all this technology that we have gained with all those other countries. Does this make a lot of sense? This is why we have so many people unemployed. We never will survive like we have in te past unless the American People wake us and see what these politicians are doing to this country.

  • John Beach

    Regardless of what most may think of the decision, it is realistic and honest because, unlike others who are characterized as “unelectable” and stay in, wasting the money of contributors whose faith has been placed in them inspite of the reality of “unelectability,” Palin has written books and done book-signing tours and probably has a really good sense of what the prospects of her candidacy would be. She has shown a consistency and honesty that other “pure politicians” rarely show and when America comes to realize that the hard decisions and discipline and acceptance of personal responsibility that have been espoused and preached by Gov. Palin are, in fact, what, as policies, will put America back on the right track, we will be ready for people like her to occupy the highest office in the land. In the interim, we settle for compromisers, middle of the roaders, “mainstream” representatives who perpetuate the status-quo of government doing what government does best, being a burgeoning, costly burden to taxpayers while maintaining policies that justify its growth and cost, much of which is accumulating debt. As the field narrows toward the conventions and election of 2012, we will see what similarities or samenesses or stark contrasts are represented in those who are chosen to given the country a logical alternative to the present administration and give us change in which we can not only believe, but which will get the country moving on the home front which is where the real battle has been for fully a half century now.
    Wake Up, America!

      Great post, John. I see you have a deep sense of responsiblity and can logically see what is going on in our politcal system. You, my friend, speak from the heart as well as I do. I appreciate your insight.

      Dear John Beach. Great post. Keep up the great work!

  • Wayne Morgan

    Zak I don’t know who you are, where your from, but you have called obama out. I don’t know that everything was in order but it was all there. I hope that border line voters get a chance to read and ponder every issue that you have stated. I didn’t not vote for obama, I don’t expect a pat on the back, but I knew he was not what our Country needed. And when I saw the young people go crazy for him it made my blood boil. What do they know about life, responsibility, and voting. I hope this experience opens eyes and minds, what you see and hear is not what you get. One form every mother I’ve ever known, “if your friends jump off a bridge, are you gong to jump to”? I hope this turns out for the best. That we all stay involved in the political process, be aware of who is running, what is their true agenda. Put a term limit on on Senators and Congressmen and women. We all have learned a hard lesson in politics in the last 2 years, if we make it through this unscathed, I hope that all of use not worry about the toys in the garage so much as who we vote for. I’m not saying I’m right, but my rule of thumb is if I don’t know you and there is someone else from another party running and I know that person, went to school with them, go to church with them, that is the person I’m voting for. To heck with party lines, I’m for America and the best person for that job. We’er not out of the fire yet, but faith in God and faith in the American people to do the right thing when the time comes. Remember the men and women that have given their lives and continue to do so to day. Our children that are coming of age to be enlisted to go to yet another war. I would feel a lot better, if we were to come back to American values, than have islam shoved done our throats. God Bless the USA!

    • Wayne

      Wayne, you have made a great post along with some others I have seen. You’re right, these young kids don’t see very much of the picture like we older folks see. Maybe they should raise the voting age back to 21 to give them another three years to see a better picture of what the world is really about. We see a much broader picture as we mature in age. I believe in the old adage, experiences in life comes as we age. It can never be learned from a book.

    I’m thankful for Gov Palin messing with the media’s ‘mind/less-ness’. She is doing it her way for all of us! We most certainly do not want the left, the media or the establishment selecting our candidate. So, ‘Go Sarah Go’ just keep on messing with the media’s ‘mind/less-ness’ or the establishments ‘do it our way or the highway’ delusions.
    I am still concerned about the left, the media or the establishment selecting our candidate! We need one “real” conservative candidate not a Politician to choose from. Herman Cain is most certainly not a Politician and may well be the most feared GOP candidate for the ‘Left Crowd and the Elites’! He is a “real” conservative candidate and defuses the ‘Class Warfare Rhetoric and Race Card’. I do not want a Politician! ‘We the People’ have an unprecedented opportunity to elect not who the ‘Elite’ and the ‘Political Opinion makers’ tell us is the ‘most electable’ but the candidate who really does best represent ‘We the People’! Herman Cain a man of Virtue, a Conservative, and a great Example of living out the American Experiment. Support $ Herman Cain $! Check Him Out!

      A profound little paragraph that says it all:

      ” You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealth out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any NATION. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ”

        • Cabby – AZ

          What you say about Soros and his minions is all true, but we need to recognize that they don’t want to destroy America just because of hate and envy. They expect to personally make a financial killing in so doing. Soros has been doing this for years – destroying other countries’ currency, etc., and in the process he comes away with billions of dollars richer.

          His objective is to live off the backs of the rest of the people, regardless of where they are in the world. The U.S. is his biggest prize because it is the U.S. that is, so far, a deterrent to the NWO.

    What you may not know about Herman Cain who is running for president….

    He’s not a career politician (in fact he has never held political office). He’s known as a pizza guy, but there’s a lot more to him. He’s also a computer guy, a banker guy, and a rocket scientist guy.

    Here’s his bio:
    • Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics.
    • Master’s degree in Computer Science.
    • Mathematician for the Navy, where he worked on missile ballistics (making him a rocket scientist).
    • Computer systems analyst for Coca-Cola.
    • VP of Corporate Data Systems and Services for Pillsbury (this is the top of the ladder in the computer world, being in charge of information systems for a major corporation).

    All achieved before reaching the age of 35. Since he reached the top of the information systems world, he changed careers!

    • Business Manager. Took charge of Pillsbury’s 400 Burger King restaurants in the Philadelphia area, which were the company’s poorest performers in the country. Spent the first nine months learning the business from the ground up, cooking hamburger and yes, cleaning toilets. After three years he had turned them into the company’s best performers.

    • Godfather’s Pizza CEO. Was asked by Pillsbury to take charge of their Godfather’s Pizza chain (which was on the verge of bankruptcy). He made it profitable in 14 months.

    • In 1988 he led a buyout of the Godfather’s Pizza chain from Pillsbury. He was now the owner of a restaurant chain. Again he reached the top of the ladder of another industry.

    • He was also chairman of the National Restaurant Association during this time. This is a group that interacts with government on behalf of the restaurant industry, and it gave him political experience from the non-politician side.
    Having reached the top of a second industry, he changed careers again!

    • Adviser to the Federal Reserve System. Herman Cain went to work for the Federal Reserve Banking System advising them on how monetary policy changes would affect American businesses.

    • Chairman of the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank. He worked his way up to the chairmanship of a regional Federal Reserve bank. This is only one step below the chairmanship of the entire Federal Reserve System (the top banking position in the country). This position allowed him to see how monetary policy is made from the inside, and understand the political forces that impact the monetary system.

    After reaching the top of the banking industry, he changed careers for a fourth time!

    • Writer and public speaker. He then started to write and speak on leadership. His books include Speak as a Leader , CEO of Self , Leadership is Common Sense , and They Think You’re Stupid .

    • Radio Host. Around 2007—after a remarkable 40 year career—he started hosting a radio show on WSB in Atlanta (the largest talk radio station in the country).
    He did all this starting from rock bottom (his father was a chauffeur and his mother was a maid). When you add up his accomplishments in his life—including reaching the top of three unrelated industries: information systems, business management, and banking—
    Herman Cain may have the most impressive resume of anyone that has run for the presidency in the last half century.

    • Dennis

      Zac, You may not have officially endorsed Mr. Cain, but I tell you right now with his resume and achievements listed and written about elsewhere, he is for sure my man unless and untill some other candidate steps up to the plate and hits one out of the park!!

    • ScarletDove

      Herman Cain and Barrack Obama are from opposite ends of the pole and opposites with experience in life and profession. Herman Cain was interviewed on Mark Levin’s program last week and I heard stories I had never read about him. Considering we are in the same generation and watching what blacks endured, I wondered why things were as they were. I was so very impressed with this man’s family ethics, the background of his parents and their philosophy about the beauty of the US, in spite of the restrictions (discrimination) that they and Herman grew up with–they did not let it get in the way, yet they did not protest or act victimized. They were proud to be Americans and it shows in Herman Cain. He is a fine man and I am in complete agreement with you Zak. Thank you for all your information and resources, it is invaluable.

      The diet probably created a superior cranial development. Hey, shit happens!

  • Herbert Moore, Roanoke, Virginia

    I was disappointed that Sarah decided not to run. I do understand her position. She has a family to think of and here attentions are needed there. Also, I believe she sees the presidency as a single office, and she can be so much more effective if she can influence the presidential race along with others for Senate and House. That would make her strengths available to the right candidates over a broad spectrum, and give here even more strength for a future presidential run. Don’t worry. Sarah Barracuda will be in the fray and here strength will be multiplied.

    • Red

      I agree Herbert, but you know, sometimes it is just too difficult when your party is against you, you are a woman, a self professed ‘rouge’, and the media is frothing at the mouth to exacebate every word you say. Plus she had all the threats toward her and her family. She is a young woman with great charisma and has a bright future.

    It is amusing–and sometimes infuriating–to hear Libs and the Media try to annalyze “the dissaray in the Republican Party”. My response has always been: There’s no real dissary, we’re merely looking for a Leader to carry the Flag. That’s all. That Leader will be from the Tea Party. Mit Romney–always lauded as the “front runner”–has always hovered around 20%. The remaining 80% is divided among Tea Party favorites. But now Palin is out, Bachman is out, and Perry is on his way down. Right now Herman Cain looks pretty good–and he has an impressive record: Brought the 400-store Philadelphia Burger King franchise from worst in nation to best in nation in three years, brought Godfathers from money-looser to mon ey-maker in two years, was president of the Kansas City Federal Reserve, rose in the ranks of Pillsbury by his own merrit, and headed the National Restaurant Association. If you think a 9% Sales Tax won’t fly you should talk to the people who think a 23% one would be cheaper.

    • Sam

      Things are pretty sad in the republican party when the best they can come up with is an sffirmative action black restaurant owner with no business experience, other than running a chain of restaurants!? Herman sounds like a nice guy, but I don’t think he can stand up to China, the Muslim brotherhood, or has the moxey to negotiate with the governments of other countries. I think that is a little more complicated than turning out a good pizza, or broiling a good hamburger. This country is in bad shape and we need a strong leader not another candidate who flaunts his color.

    Hey there Anonymous:::: Ignore that whack-a-do ;;; they’re probably one of those Obammmmmmma plants. Sarah is a lady and that kind of remark is what shows them up for what they really are. I can see why Palin decided not to run. She and her family have probably had their fill of all these nut cases slinging their uncouth and ill bred comments. Not to mention these nasty writers adding more insult to injury . I think her family has been dissed enough . I guess they have nothing better to do then bug Sarah. I personally am sorry she made this decision, but it is her decision. So what are we left with? Slim pickings , but do your research and in the end intuition is all we have left.

    She isn’t running because she knows she can’t win. You people are ignoring the fact that her polling numbers are abysmal. Now that she is out of the running, the question becomes how long will she last on Fox News? Ailes has already admitted that he thinks she is not the brightest bulb, and he hired her not for her political acumen, but because of her looks.

    • JRR

      Roger Ailes never said any such thing. Ailes is not stupid. He has put together a news organization that is without equal in quality, fairness and truthfulness. His ratings trump all the other cable news outlets combined. Gov Palin has a large and devoted following and her influence on elections cannot be denied. She has a big impact on ratings.

    • JRRS

      Roger Ailes never said any such thing. He has put together the best cable news organization in the business and continually out preforms all the other cable news outlets combined. Gov Palin is a big draw for FOX News and is a regular on all their most popular programs. She has great charism and will be a strong figure in American poitics for many years to come. You cannot teach, or buy her strong appeal to both women and men.

    I do admire Sarah , and understand her decision to not run at this time. I’m always amazed by those who call her a pretty face with no brains. Her accomplishments are astounding, especially when you realize the fact that she came from a state with a small population, and she was not from a monied family. Her family has been abused incessantly by low class ne’er-do-wells from all over the map. She has stood the high ground and not used those unseemly attacks to project her image. I personally love all the good things that she and her family stand for, and hope that she and Todd will continue to fight for all the good that America used to be known for.
    Lastly, Todd if I were you, I’d be thrilled to have this beautiful wife and mother free of all the media lies and abuse at this time, and we all look forward to your continuing fight to save our country

    Time will heal. Perhaps if we are still around in another 4 years she might be able to run. But that book and HER LACK OF RESPONSE DESTROYED HER.

    OUR MUSLIM MARXIST HAS SET A NEW RECORD!

    The Obama administration passed another fiscal milestone this week, according to new data released by the Treasury Department. As of the close of business on Oct. 3, the total national debt was $14,837,099,271,196.71—up about $44.8 billion from Sept. 30.

    That means that in the less-than-three-years Obama has been in office, the federal debt has increased by $4.212 trillion–more than the total national debt of about $4.1672 trillion accumulated by all 41 U.S. presidents from George Washington through George H.W. Bush combined.
