Governor Palin has decided to step down as governor of Alaska at the end of the month.
One of her supporters who provided the story to CNN stated ”She thinks she has accomplished goals she has set forward, She sees what a positive influence she has had on people’s lives from traveling the country in the last year.” This is the reason to step down?
Sounds like someone is full of themselves. The people of Alaska must be relieved. What is annoying is that so many so called intelligent Republicans backed her during the last election and didn’t stand up to point out her shortcomings. Can you imagine where this country would be today with McCain/Palin? we probably would be fighting in Iran today and the economy would not recover for another 10 years.
If her intention is to foucs fulltime on a run for President in 2012 why quit as Governor now? maybe because she needs three years to get a basic education in both domestic and foreign affairs.
This could be the best July 4th present that Obama and the Democrats could ever wish for. Will the Republicans really be so stupid as to select her as their nominee for 2012? I can’t wait to see the infighting among the so called possible contenders. Sanford and Ensign are gone. Jindal made a fool of himself on national television. Pawlenty’s nonsense in the Minnesota election for Senator can’t help his cause. Will conservative right wingers elect Mormon Romney? or too liberal Giuliani? Will Americans really give Jeb Bush a shot? wasn’t the last one enough?
I think the Democratic National Committee’s response to her announcement today is right on the money:
“Either Sarah Palin is leaving the people of Alaska high and dry to pursue her long shot national political ambitions or she simply can’t handle the job now that her popularity has dimmed and oil revenues are down,” DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse said. “Either way, her decision to abandon her post and the people of Alaska who elected her continues a pattern of bizarre behavior that more than anything else may explain the decision she made today.”
