Skip to comments.Palin on 2012: 'If it's right, then we will pursue that'
Posted on 04/21/2010 4:25:52 PM PDT by pissant
Sarah Palin continues to leave the door to a White House run wide open.
In an interview with "100 Huntley Street," a daily Christian talk show based in Ontario, the former Alaska governor said she "doesn't know politically what is next for me."
But Palin said she will "pursue" a presidential bid in 2012 if she decides it's the best way to help everyday people with their challenges.
The former vice presidential candidate has generally avoided talking specifically about her 2012 plans, but her comments in Canada are her most forthcoming since she told Fox News in February that it would be "absurd" not to consider a presidential bid.
Palin said she and her family have had an "exciting and full ride" since the 2008 presidential campaign ended. Her travels around the country over the last year and a half, she explained, have given her a glimpse of some of the struggles that regular Americans face every day.
"If I can help provide some encouragement, some inspiration, some hope for them to get through their battles and make good decisions and get through a challenge, because that's what we've been able to do, then I am going to stay focused on that," she said in the interview, set to air next week. "Whether that's on a local level in my own little town of Wasilla, or in the Oval Office, if it's right, then we will pursue that."

Bwahahahahaha. Come 2012 Obama will be only slightly more electable than Osama bin Laden.
You’ve been trolling against Sarah Palin for months.
You posted the stupid comment. Live with it. You couldn’t defend it.
Yup. The lessons of '08 are still fresh enough, alas. We have no one but ourselves to blame, ultimately, if we allow the RNC-types to manuever things to their liking yet again:
Well, well, well....look who’s out of the FR brig.
This response is just too funny on multiple levels...
Kinda like when you thought I was a dude! :)
And the attack poodle is a blind follower, what a surprise!
Bring it on. I think SP will blow away any of those who ran last time. There could always be somebody else, but Mitt can’t take her down. I dont think any of the SP supporters want a coronation; i’d rather not see RR 11th commandment violated but SP will know her stuff. It’s laughable to believe she might think it will be easy.
It isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s the necessary thing to do.
Neither will I, but...this is a problem.
LOL. Assumptions shame on you/sarc.
Don't feed the Sarah troll.
Keep up the good work attack poodle.
You people seem to have a gender identity problem....duuuude (said in my best Fast Times at Rigmont High voice) :)
I haven’t been keeping up very well...who is it that you’d like to see beat Obama?
Ann has be smitten by the Mitten.
That's an important observation.
I want to see her put the competition away first in a good fight.
Well, since Ann volunteered to give up her vote as a woman I think she should now make good on that.
WHY do these women dislike Sarah?
The stream of childish insults that flows non-stop from the great minds within the palinite cabal and nonsense such as your attempt at psycho-babble are unfortunate. But as with any anonymous internet ravings they are harmless and ineffective. They are understood for what they are; an attempt grounded in emotion to stifle any rational discussion of your idol's factual history.
You should know by now that in real life things are not as you say they are just because you say they are and your posts have no influence on my or anybody else's quality of life.
As I wrote above, my life is pretty darned good. My only deep concern is that this country change course and that we find somebody who can beat the incumbant. Palin is not that somebody for the reasons I have detailed frequently and will continue to detail in spite of the nipping at my ankles. Plus it's fun to yank your chain once in a while...the reactions are always so predictable.
You know, 2012 is a ways away and we need to get through 2010 first. However, there’s not a damn thing wrong with people who’d like to see Mrs. Palin in the Oval Office discussing the possibility. And there’s no good reason for you to show up on every thread hurling insults. If you’re right and she can’t win then you have absolutely nothing to worry about and you can prance around doing the happy dance when “anybody but Palin wins”. And if you’re right then all this is is wishful thinking which hurts NO ONE. We’re not voting tomorrow. We’re not even voting in the midterm primaries tomorrow. In the mean time you don’t have to be a smug little jerk everyday. It gets old.
Mitt Romney is not that guy and trolling is always pathetic.
Some would consider your opening remark, that she's "keeping the Sarah brand alive" to be a childish insult.
Everybody is entitled to their opinion of course, but when you begin with such an unprovable and cynical comment, you shouldn't be surprised when posters return the favor.
And others would consider it an accurate if blunt assessment of reality. Take your pick.
As for your second comment about freepers "returning the favor" (I guess you mean throwing insults), as I said it is unfortunate but silly and it seems, the only response those freepers can manage. I understand their emotion-based reaction and, good Christian that I am, forgive them.
Have to go now...the wife and I are up early to catch a flight to a long weekend of golf in the sun...try not to miss me too much...I'll be back in a few days.
I hope she runs in 2012. I think if she does, she will win the GOP primary and frankly I believe if this keeps up, she will likely win the presidency. I will then use my long list of malcontents so I can rub their noses in her great victory when she wins. LOL!!
Yawn. You need to reread your comment and look for the irony in it.
either of you catch the Tax Day Tea Party speech from Lord Monckton (of climategate fame)?
He opens with
“It’s not for me as a Brit to tell you who your next president is going to be, but I think you’re going to like her”
I think he’s right!
Ann probably looks down on her because she isn’t a lawyer
Tell me little bobby boy,
What are you doing to further our cause and help save our country in a time of grave international crisis.
How is the view the peanut gallery ?
How good is the breakfast with your liberal friends down at the Hotel ?
Get a dang life ! you have a worthless existance. I hope you are banned from this site for good, and soon.
He’s already been banned twice.
COULTER is jealous... and she can get that way.
