Sarah says she has a ‘fire in [her] belly’ to run for President — and that Obama must be brought down. Those are fighting words!

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will kick off a bus tour over Memorial Day weekend, which is widely perceived as an indication that she indeed will announce a run for the White House. Further fueling this argument are Sarah’s recent comments to Fox News on May 19 when she said of a presidential run: “I think my problem is that I do have the fire in my belly. I am so adamantly supportive of the good, traditional things about America and our free enterprise system and I want to make sure America is put back on the right track and we will do that by defeating Obama in 2012. I have that fire in my belly.” Strong words!

According to a statement from Palin’s fundraising group, SarahPAC, “Starting this weekend, Sarah Palin will embark on a One Nation tour of historical sites that were key to the formation, survival, and growth of the United States of America. The tour will originate in Washington D.C. and will proceed north up the east coast. More information will follow.”

Palin, who ran on the Republican vice presidential ticket in 2008, will kick things off with a roar on Sunday at the “Rolling Thunder” motorcycle ride. The event, which kicks off at the Pentagon and ends at the Vietnam Memorial, is largely made up of Vietnam war vets.

Other signs that Palin is considering a presidential run, include the Wall Street Journal‘s report that Palin has bought a $1.7 million home in Arizona, which, according to The Huffington Post, “would give her a base of operations much more conducive to domestic travel than her current home in Alaska.”

Stay tuned and let us know — would you vote for Sarah?
