Sarah Palin is not running for President

Sarah Palin, former Alaska governor and Tea Party favorite, announced Wednesday that she is not running for president, saying, "my family comes first."

She revealed her intentions on a conservative talk-radio show.

In a statement she issued to the Mark Levin Show and read by Levin on the air, Palin said:

"After much prayer and serious consideration, I have decided that I will not be seeking 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."

She added: "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."

Well, this comes as no surprise. Sarah Palin has never given any serious consideration to running for president this year. She is having too much fun sitting on the sidelines, taking pot shots at others, making huge amounts of money and trying to strengthen her credentials as a king maker.

She showed her lack of resolve to handle stress when she quit the governorship of Alaska during her first term when the attacks on her became more than she could stomach.
However, I was amused by this part of her speech. "---to help elect other true public servants" She obviously does not consider herself to be a true public servant.
