“Still a Possibility:” Sarah Palin May Enter The Race
ABC News ^ | October 4, 2011 | Shushannah Walshe and John Berman

Posted on 10/04/2011 8:11:40 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

According to a source with knowledge of the inner workings of SarahPAC, inside the Palin world it’s still a possibility that she might run. However, as the deadline approaches not even her staff knows what she will decide.

ABC News has separately learned that the Palin team is well aware of the filing deadlines and are keeping abreast of the changes in the deadline. Politico reported Tuesday that a law firm that employs an attorney representing SarahPAC had been making calls to early states inquiring about presidential filing deadlines. SarahPAC would not confirm the report to ABC News. When reached by ABC News, Mark Braden—the attorney mentioned in the Politico report—would also not comment or confirm the report or that he even works with Palin.

As the days creep toward those state filing deadlines, no new staff has been hired. Her core group of about seven staffers runs the organization while a volunteer group completely independent of SarahPAC called Organize4Palin or O4P tries to lay the groundwork in states, most notably Iowa. Those close to Palin acknowledge the decision is hers to make alone with her husband, Todd, and that she could decide the day before the first filing deadline that she wants to throw her hat in the ring....

I still think one of Sarah’s best assets is her ability to play the press like a fiddle—LOL!

B.S.

As we all know, liberal ABC has a hotline in Palin's cabin...

Do I really need a sarcasm tag? ...

If she does enter at this point, I’m going to be more than a little annoyed that she didn’t feel it was necessary to participate in any of the debates.

So? if you read what she says about Sarah from time to time on her twitter...its obvious she doesn’t like her and road along for the ride on campaign trial in 2008. Being on FOX certainly makes no one a conservative as we know now

I remember that she covered Romney’s campaign when he was running in the primaries. I distinctly remember her choking up tears when it became apparent that Romney’s campaign was finished.

Could enter the race, could write another book, could do another reality show, could go back to Alaska and finish her first term.

The possibilities are endless.

I still hope she gets in, it needs to happen pretty quick. IMO, if she was really planning to run, she should have announced by late last month.

Why does it need to be quick?

The RINO’s tried to short circuit Palin, with Christie.

It does not appear to have worked.

The only candidate now who seems to have the potential to run Palin out of time, is Cain - whom Palin likes.

What’s the rush?

Every debate answer she would have given would have been trashed by the “fact checkers” and MSM pukes. They live to hate her.

The GOP field is PATHETIC.

Palin would be doing the right thing if she took the fight to the marxists.

The current crop of "Candidates" are a joke.

It’s Palin vs Romney (Goldwater vs. Rockefeller, IOW).

Game on. Wonder if the RATs will beat Palin the same way they beat Goldwater?

Really?

The only debate participant who didn't come off as a ridiculous incompetent clueless moron was Gingrich.

I'd say the debates were pretty much useless.

“What’s the rush?”

Well, for starters filing deadlines, debate participation, organization, fundraising, momentum. The Iowa caucuses will likely be in mid to late December, which I think is earlier than ever before. She can probably take a couple more weeks, but I don’t think much more beyond that.

LOL. Think outside the box.

Palin should simply use the term “Fact Check” somehow, when challenging the marxist media.

Call it “fact checking”. Devalue their own politically loaded term against them publicly, while in reality ... fact checking. Telling the truth, Which we’ve all learned, the marxist media will not. But call it: “Fact checking”.

:D

That is beauty. Using the left’s techniques, against them.

Thing is, Palin knows that already. She’s been in the media before. She gets it.

Did you have other indicators, for hurrying?

I mean. Other than being impatient? :D

What’s interesting to me, if you take the opinions of the media and the political pundits out of the equation, it looks very likely the Governor will run.

With apologies to supporters of the declared, the current field is comprised of candidates who are their own worst enemies to candidates who have no executive experience.

The door sure looks open to me.

Are you miffed that you don’t know any of the opinions she’s expressed over the three years? That she hasn’t been vetted?

Cain is in some ways, the other GOP candidate in Palin’s political league.

I once hoped Palin and Perry would end up a ticket.

I’m starting to think Palin and Perry (either order) would be almost an unfair fight against Dems right now.

Which is just fine. :D

Coattails in the Senate, and everything.

Which English politicians did Washington debate?

Every other candidate is just a different flavor of the same enemy of the USA.

Annoyed? Patriot, if annoyance is even on your radar screen you don't understand the magnitude of our predicament.

You people need to get over palin...she’s almost certainly not running. ten more days and then the hammer falls...either she does or she doesn’t. Personally I don’t think she’s wanted to run for one minute since the last election.
