My analysis: Sarah Palin is running for President in 2012
I've rarely been wrong in what I've posted on this blog since it's conception. I don't think I'm wrong now. When Palin announced she was resigning as Governor of Alaska, I was taken back by the sudden decesion of Sarah. I went back and watched the video of her speech. Then I started to think and think and think. Then I displayed a very smirked grin, because a light bulb went off in my head. It was like everything just fell into place like playing Tetris. If Sarah Palin is going to do what I think she is going to do, the woman is as crazy as a fox and a genius on top. I debated my theory for Palin's resignation, and I have yet to find any flaw with it. Here is the reason why Sarah Palin resigned now instead of waiting until her term ended in 2011.
Go back to last year. The political primary session was pushed way back to January 3rd. States wanted to push their primaries back to coincide and compete with the Iowa Caucus and the New Hampshire Primary. Other states wanted their primaries to have some validity and not be taken for granted by the candiates. Last year's Iowa Caucus took place on January 3rd. That is a very important date to keep in mind. If Sarah Palin was to have finished out her first term as Governor, she wouldn't have left office until January 22th of 2011. That would have only given Palin "less then a year" to create a campaign team from scratch, go across country to raise money, and create a support staff in Iowa and New Hampshire along with organizing her supporters nationwide. It would have been logistically impossible to have accomplish a massive undertaking like that in less then 1 year time. If Palin would have stayed to completion, she would have only been severely handicapping herself in the process. Furthermore, this would have given her GOP rivals time to out raise money and have an obvious advantage over her. Here is a text book example of what I mean. Fred Thompson entered the Republican primary race on September 6th of 2007. That was less then three months before Iowa. His campaign was in disarray from the beginning primarily due to rushing to make up time and total miscommunication. Palin's haters can call her a "quitter" all they like. They must not have listened to the same speech I've heard. Palin isn't a quitter, if anything she's an "opportunist". If Palin truly wasn't going to run for President in 2012, why she just didn't say that she wasn't going to run for President either? Think about that. This sums it all up and then some.
Great minds think alike. This is Mark Levin's take on Palin's resignation.
