Sarah Palin Shoots Down Report That She’ll Announce Next Week

ABC News’ Sheila Marikar (@SheilaYM) reports:

Sarah Palin will not be rushed.

The former Alaska governor posted a curt tweet today after the American Spectator ran a story headlined “Palin Decision Expected Next Week.” The story cited a Republican source saying Palin’s expected to announce whether or not she’ll enter the 2012 presidential race within a week.  

“Really? Hmm, guess they forgot to inform me what I'm ‘expected to do’ next wk,” she wrote in response to the American Spectator tweet “Palin Decision Expected Next Wk.”

C4Palin, the twitter account and website that was co-founded by Palin adviser Rebecca Mansour, also rebuffed the conservative magazine with a tweet, saying that when Palin does “decide to announce @C4Palin will get the scoop.” In a later tweet, C4Palin said they wanted to send “a tongue & cheek message to all anonymous sources. Quit making things up!”

Palin’s refusal to rush her decision isn’t stopping her from speculating about a White House run. On Judge Andrew Napolitano’s Fox Business Network show Thursday night, she said she’d “love to give the White House fits.”

“I would love to give the White House fits,” she said, smiling. “Because, you know, I would love to stir it up even more and get the electorate to really start thinking about what the solutions are to these great challenges facing America and how it is that we're going to create jobs, how it is that we're going to get this economy back on the right track.”

But Palin fell short of saying that she’s the woman to come up with these solutions.

“I would love to be able to shake it up, but I also know it's not about me,” she said, “it's not Sarah Palin personally, it's about a message.”
