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

Update: Palin explaining her decision on Mark Levin, who must be heartbroken:

Finally, the pole dance is over and Mrs. Palin can attend to her family.

She'd never get elected and she knows it. The United States of America may be in bad shape, but we'd never be in such exceedingly dire straits that we'd ask Palin to lead us-- kind of like asking Pee Wee Herman to lead the first wave in the assault at Normandy.

Palin? President? Huh? How did we get to this? Could it have been John McCain? Wow! Unbelievable. What a nightmare. When will it end?

Too much leakage as Levi might say. 'Dairygate' & Dar Miller to be more specific. Current 'govna' could use a few follow up inquiries from you AK bloggers. Go get um...

Add to your thanks a certain Phil Munger, aka Edward Teller. It's not over, as long as she is still screeching about President Obama and injecting her vitriol into the political discourse, but if we are lucky, the MSM will start ignoring her. Congratulations to all of the AK bloggers and the recent book authors who talked themselves into contracts for exposes on an unpopular politician.

Thanks, physicsmom. Godd points, too. I'll worry about what she can do next later. Celebrating now...

I thought we'd have to wait at least another week for this. As a matter of fact I started counting down the days yesterday. We aleady knew she would pin it on her "family".

Very telling that she was too chickenshit to make the announcement herself ...

--- maybe the microphone floated downstream. Or the sun would have reflected off of the teleprompter.

Oh yes.

However, she aint gone far.
And, she's vindictive.

Phil, my thanks to those you've listed as well.

ROFL Maybe she couldn't make the announcement herself because fox already broke down and packed up her studio!!!

Woot! Good job Alaskans!

Single Digit Sarah, your time is up. Put down the microphone and step away from the teleprompter. See ya on cable tv.
If not for the likes of Phil Munger she would still be riding high. Well done, Phil. We all owe you.

Thank God! Our nation is safe! At least for the next four

Somehow I do not share your optimism. Ailes probably will permit her to be completely unleashed and give her more air time.
Her last few sentences about President Obama, dripping with venom, once again brought out her personal hatreds. She mirrors many and will bring in the viewers. In the process she will poison the public discourse even further.

Now $arah thinks all the scrutiny will just go away. And $arah UnShackled will be even more empowered to spew her hateful and divisiveness screeds. She is a dangerous woman who must be stopped. Please, Phil, and others - don't stop the great work you are doing to reveal this psycho fraud!!

Sarah won't be idle. She's gonna be mighty busy exacting revenge on all her haters. God, how long is that list?
