Rick Perry for Prez ????
All these years he served as governor, I don't really know what Rick Perry knows. He refused to campaign against his democratic opponent and Kay Bailey Hutchison and Debra Medina didn't challenge him. The governor will be able to brag about our low unemployment and business climate in the republican primaries. If he gets to the big time, president Obama will rake him over the coals on education and Health Care. President Obama might have a question of two about his 10th amendment stance and secession. I don't see an opportunity for him to get out his message being in a field of 10 presidential candidates. He will have to get at least 5% in the polls to be heard in the debates.
Who knows, I never gave it much thought until Edith Ann mentioned it a few days ago because the pundits haven't mentioned him....I still don't think he is running but I've been wrong before.
Just a few minutes ago his spokesman emailed this:
Shortly after reports surfaced suggesting that Gov. Rick Perry of Texas is considering a potential presidential bid in 2012, his spokesman said he's not.
"Nothing has changed," Mark Miner told National Journal in an e-mail. "The governor has no intention of running for president."
