Former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin usually never lacks in expressing her opinion. But the conservative figure still has not given a clear answer on whether she would run for president or not.

Speaking at the Tea Party rally in Indianola, Iowa, Palin displayed her usual folky nature, criticizing President Obama again for the economy. “Real hope is in you,” she said. “It’s not that hopey changey stuff that we heard about back in 2008. That hopey, changey stuff didn’t create one job in August, did it?”

Palin also expressed a strong apathy for polls, with the latest Fox News poll indicating that a large majority of Republicans do not want her to run. “Polls are for strippers and cross-country skiers,” she said.

When her attention turned towards official GOP candidates for the presidency, Palin only added “Just like you, I’m not for sale.”

Nevertheless, Palin failed to indicate whether she would run for the White House in 2012. But that did not stop her from continuing to slam Obama.

“We never apologize for America,” she said. “When we were humiliated before the world with our first credit downgrade, they promptly went on vacation.”
