David French Announces His Decision

SBNEO5Xp_400x400After several days of speculation, David French, conservative author, lawyer, foreign policy analyst, Christian, Iraq veteran, and husband of New York Times bestselling author Nancy French has announced that he will not be running for President.

In an article in National Review today, French writes:

I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve my country, and I thank God for the successes I’ve had as a lawyer and a writer, but it is plain to me that I’m not the right person for this effort.

French strikes a tone of mild despair in his piece as he talks of an America where “patriots are mocked and demagogues celebrated”.

Even good men have reduced themselves to excusing the inexcusable and defending the indefensible.

The attacks against his wife, the slander that emanated from a Politico writer and morphed into an unsubstantiated series of articles against the man and his family, would be enough to make any decent person back off from entering this year’s political contest. There is no room left for integrity, not in this election cycle.
