Sarah Palin: “It’s Not Too Late” to Enter GOP Presidential Race
Former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin teased America by proclaiming it’s “not too late” to enter the 2012 GOP nomination sweepstakes.
According to the Huffington Post, Palin’s comments came during an interview on the Fox Business Channel.
“It’s not too late for folks to jump in,” the Tea Party darling opined. “Who knows what will happen in the future.”
Palin has previously declared that she will not run in 2012. “After much prayer and serious consideration, I have decided that I will not be seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for president of the United States,” she said in an October statement. “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.”
Considering the relative weakness of this year’s field of GOP hopefuls, there is surely much pressure for Palin to reconsider her decision. Tea Party leaders have expressed their disappointment in the slate of candidates running for the nomination. They are not alone. Palin’s legions of supporters have been urging her to run, with the group Conservatives4Palin buying ads in Iowa in an attempt to persuade her.
But whether their ‘Run, Sarah, Run’ campaign– or any other persuasion attempt– will bear fruit remains to be seen. If Palin were to enter the nomination race, it would certainly shake things up. And a Palin candidacy wouldn’t be any more absurd than Rick Perry’s, Michele Bachmann’s or, for that matter, pretty much any of the lackluster reactionaries trying to pass for presidential material in this laughable Republican race.
