Palin for President — Here We Go!

It’s nearly official.  Sarah Palin is running for the GOP presidential endorsement.  At least, she’s going to if “no one else steps up.”

Via Politico:

Former Alaska GOP Gov. Sarah Palin gave her strongest indication yet that she may run for president Wednesday night, saying she would jump into the race if “nobody else were to step up” with the proposals she wants to see.

Palin’s recent trip to Iowa has increased speculation that she may run for the Republican nomination in 2012, and she has seemed more open to the possibility in recent interviews.

Asked by Fox News’s Greta Van Susteren what “would be a reason to run” during an interview Wednesday night, Palin laid out her criteria:

“A reason to run is if nobody else were to step up with the solutions that are needed to get the economy back on the right track and to be so committed to our national security that they are going to do all that they can, including fighting those on the extreme left who seem to want to dismantle some of our national security tools that we have in place,” Palin said.

“If nobody else wanted to step up, Greta, I would offer myself up in the name of service to the public,” Palin added. “But I also know that anybody — anybody — can make a huge difference in this country without a title, without an office, just being out there as an advocate for solutions that can work to get the country on the right track. And that’s where I am now.”

The National Post is a little less than enthused about the prospect:

Well, gee, sure. And it’s a good thing, too.  It wouldn’t be much of a race if there was a Democrat candidate, presumably President Obama, and no Republican to challenge him. It would be pretty weird if that happened — 300 million people in the U.S. and not one of them willing to accept the job of Republican candidate? Not even Bob Dole?

So it’s good of Palin to put herself out there. And we’re pretty sure she means it.

It’s unlikely (though not impossible) that Palin would win the Republican nomination. But she could succeed, like O’Donnell, in splitting the party to such an extent she helps Mr. Obama gain a second term.

So if you’re Mitt Romney, you better do some fast stepping up. Or you’re going to find Sarah Palin already blocking the stairs.

So, while we wait to see if she will make an official declaration, lets watch her first 2012 Presidential Campaign Video…I mean, Tea Party support video.

I am 99.9% sure she is not going to make it knowing she is cold blooded heartless woman who love to torture innocent wildlife to death.
If she is going to succeed, millions (if not billions) of wolves, deers, moose, and many other wild animals are going to be tortured to death like wolves are guned down by using helicopters and privet air planes in Alaska.
I don't think she has conscience and too many people hate her. against sarah palin&o=15527&l=dis&prt=NSS&chn=retail&geo=US&ver=4
There is connection between corruption and animal cruelty knowing most corrupted politicians never show any respect for sentient creatures and they are involved in sadistic activity of torturing animals and enjoying it!

I feel like she would not be good for our country, I don't have a problem with a women being president, but not her. Most women have a brain, she does not,

If Palin gets the nomination, then I'll be certain both parties conspiring together. They both just take turns having one of their people as president and when reelection time comes along the opposing party tries to trot out the most absurd candidates possible to run against them.
