Sarah Palin says she isn’t running for president

Her statement, via Politico:

“I have decided that I will not be seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for President of the United States,” she wrote. “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.”

I’m not surprised. In her present situation, she makes news simply by posting to Facebook. She can write books and deliver speeches and attract a large following. That’s not me criticizing her. I just think, why would you want to run for president and have the press vilify your family all over again? I think she made the right call.

What do you think about Sarah Palin and her political future?

    I am a fan and supporter of Sarah Palin and will continue to look for her insightful statements; however, I am afraid that it will turn out to have been in her (now former) situation that “she makes news simply by posting to Facebook.”

    The democrats did not want Palin to run. They are afraid of her. She is too big a threat to Obama. If she was unimportant the liberal media would not have attacked her so vehemently.She would have quietly served the remainder of her term as governor. Even the establishment republicans are threatened by her ,as they were by Reagan.

    The Democratic Party is upset that Sarah is not running. She assured Obama’s win in the last election and they were hoping to have her “support” once again in the upcoming election.
