One things for certain Texas Gov. Rick Perry has made an impressive charge in the polls since he announced his candidacy for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination early this month. So how does a guy like Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, take him on?
In an appearance on Fridays NewsHour on PBS, New York Times columnist David Brooks explained that Romney will have to do something aggressive to remain formidable.
He has only been in the race a couple of weeks but the polls moved to a degree that is almost unprecedented. He has catapulted and catapulted along all wings of the party. He is the guy they were waiting for somebody who has a harder edge. Somebody who has very strong conservative credentials but who has been elected, run a major state, and I think Mitt Romney has to be thinking Im an outsider now. Im behind and I have to do something aggressive to try to get back.

This is such a crock article.
Make him ‘seem’ corrupt?!
If you put lipstick on a pig it’s still a pig!
“Make him SEEM corrupt”
Too bad Brooks didn’t take that stand with Barry, the Imposter.
Perry advice to David Brooks: Go shove something up your ass and think happy thoughts.
WOW the haters think the american public is so stupid they can just openly announce their plans to steal the election.
Only problem, Perry has been through 3 Texas Gov races. Tested by fire. Will not work.

1. A newly found conservative backbone to replace his amoebic, jellyfish like spine.
2. A time machine.
3. Redoing his entire career, with said backbone inserted instead of said jellyfish spine.
“He is the guy they were waiting for”
So then, faux conservative, just who were you waiting for? Huh Pant Crease guy?
He’ll survive it. He’s done so for over 20 years. Not a scratch.
They’ll wait until when/if he wins the nod to bring out the dirt.
Perry covered-up this scandal by refusing to release the public listing agreement, attempting to hide the identity of the land buyer and hiding the fact that the buyer was a business partner with the original seller.
“David Brooks advice to Perry opponents: Make him seem corrupt”
Translate: “Talk about Perry’s record as governor.”
No, because they are already “bringing out the dirt.” It’s happening right here on FR and in the media daily. There will be nothing left by the time he wallups Obama.
In 2000, when Perry took office, the TRS had more assets than it needed to fund retiree benefits for more than 30 years.
But by 2010, the TRS has an unfunded liability of $21.6 billion.
When news of the scandal broke, Governor Rick Perry claimed he knew nothing about the abuse until he saw it in the paper. That was a lie.
In fact, Governor Perry and his office were informed of a stalled investigation into the abuse as early as February 2005, two years before news reports first came out.
What will Perry cover up as President?
