John King CNN interview: 5:19 minute video: Could Rick Perry shake up GOP W.H. race?
GUESTS: Erick Erickson [Red State] and Mimi Swartz [Texas Monthly] discuss the potential presidential candidacy of Texas Gov. Rick Perry.
Swartz: Formidable campaigner.
People on the East Coast underestimate him at their peril.
Perry will fight to the death if he wants this.
King: If he gets in, who gets hurt?
Erickson: Pawleny has most to lose. Bachman loses.
Hurts Romney -- explains in detail.
Palin and Giuliani wont get in if Perry gets in.
Swartz: quoting another pundit re: Bush/Perry -- Bush aristocratic Perry hardscrabble
King: Perry's Greatest liabilities? How will critics go after Perry?
Democrats must try to recast his job creation in Texas.
GPO field must go after:
HPV cancer vaccine/Gardasil
Segment ended in mid-comment; had to cut away. Will have them back.
It is absolutely amazing to witness people's reactions to Perry. If this momentum keeps up, he's in. People that had no idea whom to support before it was appearing that Perry would be throwing his hat in the ring are now moving to Perry. He has been able to do something no other candidate had been able to do.
I live in Texas.
I’m not a Perry fan.
That said, if he gets the GOP nod, I’ll vote for him and although some here on FR will scream about his RINOism, they too will vote for Perry.
Obama’s gotta go.
I can see a Perry/Rubio ticket absolutely drubing Obama in a presidential race.
(Please allow me 5 minutes to place my flame resistance suit on before replying).
Rubio is NOT a natural born citizen. Not eligible.
And for those who want to look over his Texas Gov. website:
Rick Perry: Office of the Governor
Think about it. Sarah is young. If she ran with Perry as vp he could do two terms and she w b a shoe in for pres. A Perry/palin ticket w b unstoppable.
The GOP needs a ROCK star to compete with ZERO — as bad as our economy and country are at this point under him, there are still enough stupid people to vote for him.
It’s a necessity to get someone who can WIN!!
None of the current candidates can beat 0 and, that definitely includes Romney!
Yes there will be many conversations taken out of context.
I stayed up late (for me!) and found out why these persistent few FReepers troll my Perry posts. Some flat refuse to say who they’re for (always a BIG RED FLAG for me). It seems some are Independents, one heads a CA chapter called “American Independent Party” who championed Ambassador Keyes, one is a Palin supporter who believes “Gardasil-TTC” links will help her run, and others suggest I’m a Giuliani supporter and too unclean to be posting on FR.
In fact I've posted a multitude of Palin threads -- even vanity ones like this.
Yech. We’ve got an exceptional reformer candidate and leader in Palin and you want her to play second fiddle again to a go-along-get-along globalist? No thanks!
Naw, never. (whicH TP are you referring?)
This is another “Let’s bash Perry” thread.
There is nothing in the style and presentation of Perry that will appeal to Easterners once they see and hear him and get an understanding of how thoroughly he has wrapped his governorship in the Bible.
His baseline resume a two and a half term governor from a high-growth state has appeal. But once they start coming to know Perry directly I can guarantee that they’re not going to warm to him at all.
Did you listen to the interview? Erickson posed all the questions I felt needed an answer above.
