Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: http://bit.ly/MMASurgeEp1 Sarah Palin, former Alaska governor and tea party favorite, announced Wednesday that she is not running for president, saying, "My family comes first." The controversial 47-year-old politician's intentions were revealed 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. When we serve, we devote ourselves to God, family and country. My decision maintains this order." Her announcement comes a day after New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said he would not make a late leap into the 2012 Republican presidential race. At a news conference, Christie said that "now is not my time." Mitt Romney and Rick Perry have been considered the front-runners in the race for the GOP nomination. So what do you think?
