Washington, Feb 18 (ANI): Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has jokingly indicated her plans to run for president in 2012, saying that there is "no one" more qualified for White House multi-tasking than "a woman, a mom".
Palin also said she has not yet decided whom for she should campaign in case she opts to stay out of the race.
"I don't have a name to give you right now, but what I would look for in character is someone who's been on the front lines understanding how to administer and how to lead a team. ... Gosh, nobody's more qualified for the multitasking than a woman, a mom... who's administered locally, state, with energy issues, so maybe a mayor, a governor maybe," Politico quoted her, as saying.
Palin lamented about her low poll numbers, and also slammed the media for targeting her after the Arizona shootings.
"I don't think that I've never gone through more negative press than I did right after Tucson. I think the media really jumped the gun trying to lay blame," she said, adding: "I'm not blaming that incident for my poor poll numbers... they are what they are. I'm gonna let people know who I am, what I stand for and what my record is," she said. "(You) can't rely on the liberal-leaning press to do that for you."
Palin further blasted President Barack Obama over government debt and made fun of First Lady Michelle Obama's attempt to promote breast-feeding.
"I think that's an overstatement to even say that we are even making a dent in the national debt. It's not even really a dent...it's a little thumbprint there. No wonder Michelle Obama's telling everybody, 'You'd better breastfeed your baby.' Yeah, you'd better, because the price of milk is so high right now!" she said. (ANI)
