Sarah Palin begins 2012 political operation in South Carolina

It seems a recent string of announcements from potential Republican presidential candidates has spurred Sarah Palin to begin work on her own potential candidacy.

The half-term Alaska governor’s political action committee, 2012 Can’t Come Fast Enough, has reportedly sent out a mailing to South Carolina Republicans.

“Taking back control of the House last year was only the first step,” Ms. Palin writes in the mailer first reported by The Fix. “Now you and I must fix our eyes on 2012. Our goal is to take back the White House and the Senate.”

The move is the first indication that Ms. Palin remains interested in seeking the Republican presidential nomination. The former half -term governor has yet to visit key primary states, including South Carolina. Potential presidential candidates, including former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney and former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty, have traveled to key states ahead of likely announcements.

The timing comes as recent polls show Ms. Palin trailing potential contenders. Sarah Palin has failed to lead a poll released within the past two months, a sign that she could face hurdles should she seek the Republican presidential nomination.

That said, Ms. Palin may find support in South Carolina from Republican governor Nikki Haley. Ms. Palin vaulted the South Carolina governor to the national spotlight, endorsing her campaign during the 2010 gubernatorial primary.

    Interesting.. Why writers keep writing..
    They say… Sarah Palin has failed to lead a poll released within the past two months, a sign that she could face hurdles should she seek the Republican presidential nomination.

      For sarah, listing her educational background is a hurdle. A huge hurdle. A veritable gotcha question.

      I believe sarah enjoys watching her supporters crawl at her feet begging for her to run as much as I do.

        Oh my gosh..

        Do you realize that Palin has NEVER had to sit and be interviewed like any / all of the other potential candidates. Never hear anyone ask Palin.. if you can’t go to one college for a degree, but actually went to 5 What kind of example are you?
        Oh..Palin children barely graduated high school, pregnancy out of wedlock, drug use, vandialism- what kind of family values are these? Which one will go to college? NONE!
        If you abuse power as a state offical- isn’t it normal that you would abuse power in a higher position? I could go on.. You know what I mean.. She has not been required to answer sufficiantly!

    On th other hand, I’ve read rumors that Nikki Haley is lukewarm about Quitler. Haley probably has her own goals. Catfight?

      I truly hope so..

      Nikki Haley is a smart and dedicated public servant, yes she serves the public, unlike Pa_in…. Gov. Haley presents herself in a professional way, SC should take pride in this Republican Conservative woman! I’ve read how Palin has envoked Governor Haley’s name in many speeches. I sure hope Palin is left out in every way!
      I wrote Governor Haley a couple days ago. Telling her among other things that the current support that she has is by her own hard work, dedication and integrity. Palin has nothing to do with it, and that she owes her nothing and to stay far away! Not expecting a reply, but just a friendly warning! Not many get’em any more from me! But, now that I actually have a title as an exclusive member of the Anti Palin Crusaders, I feel empowered!!

    1/2 term gov sounds good.
    She quit to make money.
    Perhaps she should state the fact clearly and NOT start her campaign off lying?

      The Quitter only works Half Time. So it would be appropriate to label It That Quit a Half Time worker with a halftime brain and a halftime failure.

      So I’m kinda feelin sorry for conservatives around the country. She is gonna divide the republicans. “Fight, Fight, Fight”, will be her campaign slogan. And she will love it.

      I know… I had to add it.. That’s why its in italic! I wish these simple truths would catch on.. These are what will bring Palin down completely! Referring to her as a half term governor, resigning under suspecious circumstances.. and or Sarah Palin first time woman candidate who didn’t know what the position of VP actually did! Sarah Palin, such a rogue, she was called a ‘whack job’ by her own staff. Sarah Palin the failed VP candidate wants to be your president!

    Wow, for once I agree with Sarah Palin: “2012 can’t come fast enough”. Of course, I have a slightly different agenda, like getting rid of all the teabaggers in the House, but picky, picky.

    The question I haven’t seen asked yet:
    Is John McCain running for president?
    Will Sarah pick McCain for her #2?

      No kidding.. I need to find that SNL clip when McCain was on and Tina Fey played Palin trying to give away t shirts to start her 2012 campaign with the media behind McCain’s back, literally!

    Admit it Sighren: You are dying to see Sarah Palin run for president. Your whole existence requires that she remain a public figure, the larger the better. Without Palin, there is no reason for you to spew your “conservative” (hahahaha) opinions on how unfit she is to walk the earth. If there is no Palin, there is no Sighren. So get down on your knees every night a pray that she remains in the spotlight.

    Sighren: You like a challenge don’t you? In what ways can you take a story on the corrupt practices of Democrat leadership and turn it in to a slam on Palin. Remember, more points are given for originality.

      It took less than 24 hours for your lie to be debunked. Don’t you just hate when a smear ends up on your own face?

    Other than her crazy palinbot supporters, who is going to financially support her candidacy? Seriously, who? Don’t get me wrong, I would love to see her try. Maybe this time she might be properly vetted by the MSM. Wouldn’t that be refreshing…..not to mention fun. With all the tell-all books coming out, I can’t buy enough popcorn for this entertainment.

    Newt isn’t considered as batsh*t crazy and stupid as she is and just look at the trouble he’s having. She just can’t survive that. Too many skeletons.

    BigToe– Palin plays victim which is how she has gotten so far. She may get in. I feel like everytime someone says “never” about her that they are jinxing it for a good Republican. No smart person wants to get into an elected office in this day of reality shows and the public wanting to see how far things will go.

    I think she’s just asking for money after Huckabees departure. She’s a grifter con artist through and through

    Wow, almost every comment has a thumbs down! I wonder which ‘quack quack’ commenter may have done that….

    $arah sent a fundraising letter for her existing PAC – not for an exploration committee or for a campaign fund.

    The Organize 4 Palin group makes their members pay for their own printing and shipping for tracts. Will $arah reimburse them later? I’m not holding my breathe.

    O4P has groups in 26 states – red ones at that. They will be sorely disappointed when no professional office opens in their state.
