Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin Could Join 2012 US Presidential Derby
04. September 2011
If her recent speech would be taken in a indication, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin could make a last minute move to join the presidential derby in the 2012 elections in the United States.
Palin is recently seen in public delivering speeches hitting the Barrack Obama presidency for failing to uplift America and making the life of Americans hard. The former Alaska however had yet to publicly announced her intention to run but her recent statement and actions could point to that direction.
In her recent speech, Palin said the Obama administration failed on its role since it focused too much on its support to corporations rather than the tax paying public. She said with his policy, Obama need to be replaced by someone whose heart belongs to the masses and not the corporations.
“This is why we must remember the challenge is not simply to replace Obama in 2012. The real change is who and what we will replace him with,” Palin said. If Palin runs, political experts said she had a slim chance of winning since she is not that popular among Republican voters unlike other probable Republican candidates like Texas governor Rick Perry.
To uplift the economy of America, Palin proposed expanding oil drilling and loosening regulations on it. She also called for pared down business regulations. And she suggested eliminating the corporate income tax.”It’s not just fear of a double-dip recession, and it’s not the shame of a credit downgrade,” she said. ”This is a systemic crisis due to failed policies and incompetent leadership,” she added.
As the Republican Party nominee for Vice President in the 2008 presidential election, she was the first Alaskan on the national ticket of a major party and the first Republican woman nominated for the vice-presidency. She is also the youngest person and first woman to be elected Governor of Alaska, Palin held the office from December 2006 until her resignation in July 2009.
