Palin and Beck make announcement about 2012

Posted by loricalabrese on September 13, 2010

After much speculation of an announcement of a 2012 presidential bid, former Gov. Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck appeared in front of thousands of fans in Anchorage on Saturday night, and announced that in 2012 they will both be… voting.

The duo, who drew thousands to the Restoring Honor Rally in Washington D.C., held a 9/11 commemoration rally at the Dena’ina Center, Palin’s first big speaking appearance in Alaska since she resigned after two and a half years as governor last summer.

Palin spoke briefly then introduced Beck, saying the conservative television and radio personality has inspired millions. Both Beck and Palin were perched on stools, a few feet from each other, and gave accounts of where they were on Sept. 11, 2001.

Palin, who was mayor of Wasilla, said she got a call at City Hall. “They said they were gathering people at the Lutheran church and the Baptist church,” she said. “So we shut down City Hall and we all ran up to the churches and we started praying for America.”

“They called me and they said, ‘We want you on the air,’ ” said Beck, who said he watched the collapse of the towers on television from Tampa, Fla. “I spent the next few days on my knees, as every American did. I was pleading for some kind of guidance. I remember in that moment realizing I knew nothing … and I remember just saying, ‘Who am I to have a voice at this point? And try to guide people through it?’ ”

When they addressed the internet speculation that they would be making an announcement about a 2012 presidential run together, Beck asked Palin if she was going to run. She didn’t answer, instead responding by asking him if he was going to run. Beck said that he was not. Palin followed up, saying if she would make an announcement, she would make it on a KWHL drive-time talk radio show.

“If there is going to be some big national announcement I’m going to do it where it’s most worthy. I’m going to do something big, even bigger then Glenn Beck. It’s going to happen on the Bob and Mark show,” Palin said.

As they dismissed the speculation, they reminded everyone about 9/11.

“Here we are so many years later, and I fear we are forgetting,” Beck said.

Palin told of doing an interview last year with Beck under the Statue of Liberty in New York. She said she told Beck that her son, Track, who served in the military, got a tattoo of the statue on his forearm and she had just been texting with him about what they knew about the monument. She said Beck sent Track a book with a chapter on the meaning of the Statue of Liberty.

“This Statue of Liberty was gifted to us by foreign leaders, really as a warning to us, it was a warning to us to stay unique and to stay exceptional from other countries,” Palin said. “Certainly not to go down the path of other countries that adopted socialist policies.”
