Sarah_Palin_Fox_NewsWell if former Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK) decides to run for President it won’t be because her heart isn’t in it.  Speaking with Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren last night she was asked about former Governor Mike Huckabee’s decision not to run, Van Susteren wanted to know if she had the “fire in the belly.”

Palin said:

I think my problem is that I do have that fire in my belly. I am so adamantly supportive of the good traditional things about America and our free enterprise system and I want to make sure that America is put back on the right track and we only do that by defeating Obama in 2012. I have that fire in my belly.

She said there were several pragmatic things she needed to look at including her large family and the sacrifices that they would have to make if she did run.  This interview was probably the most frank discussion she has had on the matter of a potential 2012 run.

It’s apparent that she hasn’t ruled running out, and this indicates for me that there is a desire there.  Perhaps there will be a decision soon.

  1. It bothers me a little to hear here say “defeat Obama.” I’d like to hear her run on a platform of issues than on trying to beat the evil Obama

    1. Sean, I trust you meant well, and meant this constructively. However, have you really be paying attention? Sarah Palin has been more outspoken on the important issues facing our country than any of the other potential candidates. She has been out front taking all the slings and arrows while the others have been laying low “protecting their negatives” to use the political operative phrase. Sarah Palin is not the conventional “political operative” candidate. She is exactly what you say you want her to be. She is not afraid to address the important issues.

  2. Some things Sarah Palin did since she reloaded:
    Jump-started the weakening of Obamacare. (Death Panels)
    Gets Obama wee-wee’d up.
    Rallied and strengthened the TPMovement.
    Gave quick and correct decisions on policies.
    Gave us TPM-Republicans in the House and Senate.
    Saved the GOP from nominating someone for 2012 who couldn’t even beat McCain last time.
    (This last one is ‘in process.’)
    And most important in my and some other cases anyway – she helped us have hope.

    Over the last couple of years, while others were planing on how to convince us that they have ample capability and fortitude, Sarah was showing us she has ample capability and fortitude.
