In the array of governors who turned to national politics a collection that includes four of the last six presidents and a horde of contestants who didnt make it Rick Perry looks a lot more like Sarah Palin than like George W. Bush. And not just in his politics.
Mr. Bush went from announcement to primary to the presidency without John McCain or Steve Forbes or the hanging chads in Florida turning him into a running punch line. Republicans made their examination and picked their guy.
Mr. Perry got into this with all of the attributes Republicans were looking for. A fresh face? Check. Able to leap tall donors in a single bound, hauling in pallets of money? Check. In line with social conservatives? Check. Copacetic with fiscal conservatives? Simpatico with the Tea Party? Good speaker, good-looking, nice family? None of Ms. Palins baggage but all of her constituents? He checked every box.
The governor has a record of electoral victories all the way back to 1984, including in a couple of difficult races against Jim Hightower and John Sharp and some that were difficult on paper and easy in fact, against Tony Sanchez and Kay Bailey Hutchison.

It would be better to stock up on food, water, and ammo than donate a bunch of money to Perry or any politician.
It’s the standard “make ‘em all look bad while ignoring the communist democrat candidate” that we have come to expect from the lame stream media.
Quitter - it's a very big bag.
Sorry, what baggage is that?
It’s, also, a very big lie.
It’s the New York Times disinformation is the only tool they operate with,some for LA times.
No. It's not. She quit. Unless you are admitting she was forced out.
>>She quit. Unless you are admitting she was forced out<<
I hear Palin will be launching a 3rd party run as an independent conservative in 2012.
I hope so.
Just made that up...my bad?
