The ever growing signs of Palin 2012

The race for 2012 is underway with several GOP contenders launching exploratory committees or outright declaring their bids for the White House.  During this time, some possible contenders have bowed out (Mike Huckabee and Mitch Daniels), a new face has name for himself (Herman Cain) and an old face has made a complete fool of himself (Newt Gingrich). There even was a flash in the pan (Donald Trump).  Throughout all the excitement, Sarah Palin has been taking quiet little steps toward running.

First there were subtle steps like hiring a new chief of staff, trips abroad and the beefing up of SarahPAC. But these last two weeks Sarah Palin has been making some rather serious moves showing she is going to make a run in 2012.  First, there has been a change in Palin's tone.  Starting with her admission that she has a fire in her belly for 2012 and then her goal to make sure Obama is not reelected in 2012.

The subtly is gone and now Palin is making some rather bold and obvious moves. First there was the purchase of a home in Arizona  (an essential move given Alaska's logistic and climatic challenges). Then came the announcement that there will be a movie highlighting her career as governor, that will premiere in Iowa no less. Finally today we learn that Palin will embark on a national bus tour

Our nation is at a critical turning point. As we look to the future, we are propelled by America's past. It's imperative that we connect with our founders, our patriots, our challenges and victories to clearly see our way forward. A good way to do this is to appreciate the significance of our nation's historic sites, patriotic events and diverse cultures, which we'll do in the coming weeks on our "One Nation" tour.'
We'll celebrate the good things that bring Americans together; those things that will give us the needed strength to meet the heady challenges ahead. I’ve said many times that America doesn’t need a "fundamental transformation," instead we need a restoration of all that is good and strong and free in America! So, together let’s prepare ourselves for the days ahead by reminding ourselves who we are and what Americans stand for.
We'll celebrate the meaning of our nation's blueprints, our Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, which are the threads that weave our past into the fabric necessary for the survival of American exceptionalism. Our founders declared "we were born the heirs of freedom", and despite our difficulties and disagreements, we remain one nation under God in freedom, indivisible. Through visits to historical sites and patriotic events, we'll share the importance of America's foundation.
We encourage you to support the pro-America events we'll be privileged to participate in during these coming weeks. Discover the ties that bind Americans, our history, our traditions, and the exceptional nature of our country!

While there are explanations for all her actions other than a run for the White House, the cumulative effect says otherwise. Recent polls by both Gallup and CNN show Palin moving the top of the list just behind Mitt Romney. To me this indicates that Republicans who may have once been dissuaded from Palin are beginning to realize that she is what we are looking for in 2012.  For those in doubt about whether or not Palin can beat Obama in the general election, remember that Palin, saddled with a hapless and hopeless John McCain, was able to pull ahead in the polls against Obama at the height of his Hopey Changey magic. In 2012 Palin will not have McCain's dead weight and Obama's magic is completely gone.  Something to thing about.

Excellent points! I love that she's a true conservative and not afraid to at like one! I worry that SNL has demonized her but she can overcome that by pounding away on the issues. And a VEEP with 'gravitas' wouldn't hurt either! Go Sarah!

The "One Nation" Road Tour is a stroke of genius!!! She will be travelling around the country visiting historical sites and meeting people (you can bet on the later) and all without officially announcing her run or having to give up her gig at Fox News. A couple of things that I should also add: they are travelling around in their own RV. Also, the tour starts when the Palins will likely participate in the Rolling Thunder rally, in DC, on Sunday.
