Palin Will Not Run for the GOP Nomination in 2012 – Will Work for Historic GOP 2010 Repeat in 2012

Via the Mark Levin Show: Sarah Palin, former 2008 GOP V.P. Candidate and Governor of Alaska, will not seek the GOP nomination for the Presidency in 2012. The text of her letter to supporters follows:

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

From this conservative feminists’ point of view, Palin’s decision in not seeking the office of the Presidency, is, at this juncture, a best use of her talents in shaping the race for not only the Presidency, but the Senate and Congress as well. It is a fact that she was a major force in the 2010 elections, turning the midterms into an historic gain for the GOP, especially with the addition of Tea Party members to the Congress. Although one would have loved to have seen Palin in the debate forum, those eight that have taken the podium are more than deserving, specifically, in this opinion, Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich. From a pragmatic point of view, those donors and supporters are now free to support the candidate that most respects the values of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, a limited Federal government and freedom from excessive taxation that our Founder’s had in mind. In addition, the candidate who is not afraid to put those, in the media and in both major political parties, that are disparaging, in their place. The country needs a leader who has the intellect, the judgment, the character and the will to govern at this most critical time in our nation’s history. In this opinion, there are those in the current GOP field that fit the bill. God Bless Sarah Palin and her family for all they have put up with, for all she has given of herself for these United States and for all that she intends to do to serve our great nation.
