Donald Trump, Sarah Palin, Rick Perry, and Paul Ryan are all secretly planning to run for President 

Unless you vocally threaten to commit suicide, as New Jersey governor Chris Christie jokingly did, any GOP star is "running for president" depending on the latest 'signs,' 'rumors,' and 'reports,' cited.

Here's today's roundup:

Laura Ingraham told Mike Pence that a source in Texas insists that Governor Rick Perry will announce his candidacy in the coming days. Perry himself, said today that he's “not going to get distracted from my work at hand"

As noted earlier, Sarah Palin bought a house in Arizona and a Palin documentary will be released in June, prompting widespread speculation that she's going to run and an in-depth New York Times story.

Paul Ryan said this morning that he has "no plans" to run, repeating a similar statement when he ruled out a run for Senate, that he is merely trying to make a difference in our country serving as a congressman.

Donald Trump suggested earlier this week that "he can not rule out anything" regarding an independent last minute run for President, even though earlier this month he ruled out running for the GOP nomination for president.

It's an unspoken rule of presidential campaigns. . . if a political star doesn't say 'no' every time someone asks them if they're running for president, pundits will hype the hypothetical in the hopes that someone interesting will happen.
