Posted on 07/24/2011 1:44:02 PM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
Many conservatives and Tea Party activists across the country are eagerly anticipating the entry of Texas Governor Rick Perry into the race for the Republican presidential nomination. Yet Fox Business correspondent Charlie Gasparino suggests that many New Yorkers on Wall Street, presumably of both political parties, are not at all excited about the possibility of a Perry presidency.
I talk to a lot of Wall Street guys . . . you know I dont think a guy from Texas can win again. I just think theres a Texas taint to it all. And I know the big money on the street in New York, I dont think theyre going to go for a Texan.
Instead, Gasparino reveals many on Wall Street are preparing for a match-up between President Obama and Mitt Romney. Apparently the taint of Obamacare, Romneycare or anything else stinking up these two would wash off much more easily than Wall Streets enduring fear of anything affiliated with Texas.

>>>Wall Street are preparing for a match-up between President Obama and Mitt Romney.
they can have it.
i’m not voting.
Yeah, they’re so right. Never in our history has a Texan ever won the presidency...
Well look who’s posting “another” Perry hit thread.
Wall Street guys = cocaine sniffing homos
Yeah Wall Street and the media.
The very same people that brought us Obamageddon. Americans will really listen to these people that have destroyed jobs and the economy by supporting Zero and his minions.
LOL -- I'm posting a lamestream media hit piece.
Taint used to be slang for....oh never mind.
Baloney. We are not nominating the Mittster.
Darn! I guess Perry win New York!
hm... wait.. he wasn’t going to win New York anyway! So who cares.
They like Romney!!!

This little pissant thinks his remarks will steer money from Perry to Romney.
If he knew so much he'd be making money and not reporting on it.
You’re starting to pound the table Diogenesis.
1. When a reporter says “I talk to a lot of [fill in job here]” theres a 75% chance they’re lying their butts off.
2. As much as I feel that Wall Street has been used as a whipping boy, this election will not be kind to a Republican who is seen as Wall Street’s smiling minion. Yes, I’m talking about you, Mitt.
3. If the Texas taint is bad, imagine the Massachusetts taint...or more properly, the Romneycare taint.
4. Jimmah Carter thought the California taint would work. Toward the end of the 1980 campaign he started running ads featuring dissatisfied Californians who disliked Reagan. Seeing a bunch of San Franciscans ate up about a conservative Republican didn’t exactly do a lot to distract people from the stagflation and massive unemployment, and the fact that Bush and Perry both hail from the same state isn’t going to make Americans forget about Obamacare or a trillion dollars down the crapper with no jobs to show for it.
