Sarah Palin isn’t running. She made the announcement on Mark Levin’s radio show yesterday and released a letter to her supporters at the same time.
I’m disappointed. I’m a Palin fan and proud of it. I think she’d make a great President. On the other hand, I can understand why she isn’t running.
October 5, 2011
Wasilla, AlaskaAfter 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.
Why? These two sentences says it all. “When we serve, we devote ourselves to God, family and country. My decision maintains this order.”
When you stop and think a moment, she has two young children who would vulnerable targets for the poison gossips on the left. The rest of her children are older and already baptized in that area.
Do your best, Sarah. I’m still your fan.
