But why is Sarah Palin not running for President in 2012?
1. Security for Sarah Palin and her family.
Many death threats against Sarah Palin and her family. I have heard reports that her mother and father always sleep with a gun next to their bed because of threats. If Sarah Palin ran for President she would need a small army to protect her and her family. But why so many death threats? Why so much hate?
There has been a long term campaign of terror against political opponents of Obama. Rep. Andre Carson, a leading member of the Congressional Black Caucus said the
"Tea party wants to see African Americans hanging on a tree."The only purpose for a statement like that is to incite violence and racial tensions. Sarah Palin is the person most associated with the Tea Party. The statement by Andre Carson is just one of many made by people in government and others. After the death of Libya's Moammar Gaddafi. The actor Orlando Jones went on Twitter and said,
"Libyan Rebels kill Gaddafi, if American liberals want respect they better stop listening to Aretha & kill Sarah Palin".Craig Christy, 47, and his son Shawn Christy, 19, were arrested for harassing Sarah Palin , members of Sarah Palin's family, and members of Sarah Palin's attorney's law office. They threaten to rape or kill Sarah Palin, Sarah Palin's daughters and Sarah Palin's parents. At a court hearing Sarah Palin told the judge
“I fear for my friend's and for my family’s safety.”So I believe that concerns about security for her and her family, played a big part in Sarah Palin not running in 2012. If she ran in 2012 death threats would go through the roof. She would have to spend a fortune just on security.
And the second reason?
2. Sarah Palin needs to be able to tell people like Erick Erickson,Peggy Noonan,Neal Boortz ,Karl Rove ,Kathleen Parker, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and others, to step aside and shut the hell up.
If Sarah Palin ran in 2012 she might have won and she might have lost to Obama. It's an election anything could happen. Her supporters and anyone with a brain would understand this. But not Erick Erickson and his crew. For the next four years we would hear them say that Cain, Perry,Bachmann. Romney or Gingrich would have one. For the past year we have been hearing how unelectable Sarah Palin is. And people like Cain and Perry would be super candidates. Ok. So Sarah Palin has step to the sidelines now. The establishment candidates have the spotlight now. They have their shot at the title. Let's sit back and see how well they do.
If and when Sarah Palin runs for President she will need to have complete control. Run things her way. No deals or compromises with any person or group. Sarah Palin needs to be able to say join me or get out of my way. She needs to be able to say join me or shut the hell up.
