    Default Gov. Sarah Palin Resigns

    I hope she's not planning to run for President.

    We don't need four more years of Obamo.

    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    I hope she takes Michael Steels job.

    I was reading on the net that she is facing her 15th Ethics charge and many of her key staffers have resigned. Plus, her popularity in Alaska has been falling.

    Maybe too much pressure being in the National spotlight?

    I personally don't want her heading up the RNC, too much of a liability. I think the best thing she could do for herself, her family and the GOP is to lay low.

    A very decent woman but not something the GOP needs at this time. I thought she was a big liability during the McCain campaign.

    One of the things that the RNC needs is a dynamic personality running it. Someone that can energize those that call themselves Republican. They need to create a plank for the Republicans to stand on and work toward finding some faces for their party. I thought, originally, that Steel would do well at that. I was and am mistaken. If anything, the Republican Party is in complete disarray.

    She would be great at fund raising and pulling a base together.

    Republicans, how would she do in that capacity?

    .
    I thought she was the only good thing about the ticket, the buzz was about her not the "maverick" I think she is a polarizing figure and although I like her she doesnt have the gravitasse to be a serious contender for the White House..I think there is very little middle ground with Palin, you either love her or you cant stand her

    I don't dislike her. I just think she ran off a lot of moderate women during the election. The GOP was already going to get the Religious Right vote as an anti-Obamo vote so, she didn't bring anything to the ticket.

    The attacks on her would be brutal and with many Alaskans now unhappy with her, she would be too easy a target for the Dems.

    Besides, I just read where she is returning to the pagent circuit.

    Has anyone checked the informal poll for 2012 that was going on here? Wonder how Maverick is doing now?

    Sorry, but I don't buy she needs time to prepare. She took an oath, and took on a 4 year committment. She's untrustworthy and unreliable.

    I suspect that Palin realizes that her fiscal "achievements" were based solely on the inflated price of oil -- which contributes 90% of state revenues -- and that there is no way she can finish the job without seriously damaging any credentials she might have for fiscal management. While one part of me would love to see her as the GOP candidate, I would prefer to see a stronger candidate since that will produce the best "deal" for voters.

    That's true, but she knew that all along. (someone else knew it, and told her) There's going to be more to this story. There's no way this is a move to help position her for a presidential run in 2012.

    Really, has anyone here ever skipped out of work, then phoned the boss to tell him you took unannounced time off to prepare for the new position you bet he's gonna give you now? That's silly. Besides, it doesn't take that long to read "How to be a National Candidate for Dummies"

    I think instead of hammering away at her, it would be better to wait and see what move she makes...IMO she has more to offer this country that what some folks would like to believe....


    I think she has a family that she wants to raise and 'protect' from such 'ASSES' as Letterman and others...

    I think she DOES want to help this country and I commend her for making what has probably been a very difficult decision for her - she absolutely understands the repercussions of what she has done - she is smarter than that......
    dnf77 - I don't know what Palin ever did to you or PA, but apparently you have a little resentment toward her...
