Palin rolls out 'vision of the future' in video

(CNN)-What begins with the howl of a grizzly bear and ends with a promise that "our best days are yet to come?"

The promotional video that caps off a roll-out announcement for former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's bus tour.

The video, produced by the same duo behind Palin's 2010 "Mama Grizzlies" spot and released Friday, follows Palin's Thursday reveal of her "One Nation" bus tour. The tour begins Memorial Day in Washington, D.C. and travels "up through New England," according to the SarahPAC website.

"We have a vision for the future of our country," the self-proclaimed "mama grizzly" declares in a voiceover narrating scenes of towns and citizens across America.

She singles out Republican founding fathers Washington and Lincoln, as well as her oft-quoted GOP icon Ronald Reagan as figures who have passed down the "enduring truths" of freedom and the Constitution "to you."

The potential presidential contender stirred up speculation about whether she would seek the GOP nomination in 2012 with the "One Nation" tour announcement and news that a pro-Palin feature film would debut in the first-in-the-nation caucus state of Iowa.

And though exact cities on the tour have yet to be disclosed, a Palin source told CNN that stops will be historic sites along the East Coast "that were key to the formation, survival and growth of the United States of America," including the Civil War battlefields at Gettysburg and Antietam, Philadelphia - to visit the Liberty Bell - and a visit to the first-in-the-nation-primary state of New Hampshire.

Perhaps hinting at her future plans, Palin assures, "We know our best days are yet to come."

Listen to the Political Notebook as Candy Crowley, anchor of CNN's State of the Union, and Bob Costantini discuss Sarah Palin's bus tour and Tim Pawlenty's truth comments. Plus, Memorial Day weekend "Poli-Synch."

    Interesting shot of the bear..looks like he took one to the back..not surprising, since Palin likes to shoot wolves running in deep snow from a helicopter.."cpuld you bring me in a little closer..that's it!"

    Saran Palin when are you going to learn, the American people don't want you. We don't like Quitter and you are the most UNQUALIFIED person to run for President. I don't even UNDERSTAND Why people and the news keep calling you Gov Palin, You are NOT a GOV because you QUIT and you never finish your term so that mean you are not a GOV. Plus that you have to be the BIGGEST IDIOT I ever heard. Half the time you don't even know what you are taking about. You shouldn't even be able to run for dog catcher ,but the dogs would out smart you and you never catch one. And beside that you are back by the KOCH'S BROTHER and the TEA PARTY. Be smart and stay at fox news they deserve you, and this way you can till ran your mouth.

    I agree,.. our best days are yet to come,.. thanks to the vision and intelligence of President Obama,.. who against all odds has cleaned up the Republican mess. Palin will contribute nothing to the recovery and eventual prosperity,.. all she has to offer is divisiveness, and lies. The Republicans must really be desperate, if they are pinning their hopes on Palin, as their banner bearer.

    You gotta hand it to her – she does know how to make the bucks.

    Our best days will be when this egomaniac, self-absorbed dumb boob goes back to Alaska and stays there. Very very sick of this lunatic.

    This woman is the textbook definition of a person with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Trash.

    She "Knows our best days are yet to come". Not if she's around. That woman will go to any length to keep her
    name around and that is all $he is about! She is stupid and incompetent and has no place in the public arena. She
    is way over her pea sized brain and is living the fantasy that she really is something.

    Just one more thing as soon as Michele Bachmann say that she running to we will have all the clown in the CIRCUS. with the BIGGEST CLOWN being you Saran Palin. The Republican Party and the Tea Party should be Proud of It self, for having the Biggest bunch of IDIOT,UNQUALIFIED running at one time. These people and the Paul Ryan Plan will all most do you all in.

    Turns heads? Snoring is more likely. If Sarah wasn't so cute, no one would pay her a moment of attention. Her message is vacuous and nothing but a bunch of bumper-sticker-isms. She has not once, not one single time ever given any indication that she has any idea what is going on in the country or in the world, and most certainly hasn't presented any solution (and no, "We have to balance the budget" is not a solution..that's just common sense). If she gets elected president, we will accelerate toward third-world country status and George Bush Jr will be able to finally say truthfully that he wasn't the worst president in history.

    So what concrete realistic issues and solutions does she discuss? Oh, forgot, she isn't capable of forming such thoughts.

    Palin believes wildlife that has become a burden to society should be shot from helicopters (She specifically referred to wolves). I can't help but wonder if the same hard-hearted approach would be as condoned by this maverick as a potential treatment for a renegade bear that disrupts American life. I have but one suggestions. Let's show compassion and instead of her method of arial murder, we simply ignore this raging grizzly and allow it to go back into the wilds of Alaska.

    If I remember my history, George Washington was not a member of any party. I believe he didn't believe in them. Also, the Republican Party wasn't formed until 1854. Ms Palin needs this history tour. Maybe she'll learn some.

    Sara Palin will NEVER be President of the United States!

    When she comes to NH I just might take the drive up as I live nearby. I would just love to get a live look at the folks who actually support her. Notice she is not coming to Massachusetts which has many historic sites–but she couldn't fill a phone booth here. What are the historic sites in NH?? But, of course, that's not her real reason for this tour. Hope her turnout on this family vaca at Sarah PAC's expense draws minimal crowds...maybe then she will just go away....far far far away.

    "What begins with the howl of a grizzly bear and ends with a promise that "our best days are yet to come?"
    First of all if I was really a grizzly I would be out looking for this woman to take a swipe at that lazy eye of hers. Second, yes, the best days are yet to come because President Obama will have another four years and maybe by then this imbecilic moron and her retarded followers would have finally all gone the way of the Doo Doo.
    The rolling thunder organizer made sure today that everyone knows that she was NOT invited to speak at their rally nor are they going to acknowledge her nor does she have anything to do with their agenda. I think a little bit of roar from the motorcycles as she is trying to screech her way to whoring more money will shut her up!
    "One Nation" for the most devisive witch to ever walk the planet. Is this part of the independent party that she and her husband belong to or just her trying to pretend that only white people who listen to her hate and dumbness count?

    Absolutely disgusting and hilarious all at the same time. Sarah, you are a blemish on human history. You say you fight for womens rights, but you actually make a mockery of them. You say you fight for freedom, but your constituents and your actions say otherwise.

    But hey, I'd vote for her, just to push us over the edge as a nation.....

    BTW – I know it's the Do Do bird, but doo doo fits her so much better as she already walks in crapola.

    This Palin is a sick version of a running joke. She is a totally delusional narcissist, more than practically anyone else I've ever seen. Hopefully the overall mental health of this country is well enough to see thru her illusions.

    Sarah Palin is so cool. She simply has to be President! Better?

    There is something stuck to the bottom of my shoe, right now, with more potential to contribute to the future of our country, than Sarah Palin.
