Skip to comments.Rick Perry Is George W. Bush 2.0 [Meghan McCain warning]
Posted on 09/16/2011 8:11:33 AM PDT by Titus Quinctius Cincinnatus
When the initial buzz about Rick Perry started getting louder and louder this summer, I asked a friend of mine, who is a longtime veteran of Republican politics, what I should expect from the Texas governor who was trying to become our party's next nominee for president. The response was quick and to the point: Rick Perry is George Bush on crack, just wait. So far, I don't necessarily agree that Rick Perry is George Bush on crack, but he could definitely be described as George Bush 2.0. He is also a phenomenon that has quickly attracted intense interest and high poll numbers that continue to climb (he is currently, in most polls, the Republican frontrunner). All of it, I quite frankly do not understand. I feel like a character in The Emperors New Clothes, but instead of pointing out that the emperor isnt wearing any clothes, I am pointing out that this person is in every way unelectable on a national scale.
Who exactly are we kidding here? Do we really think possibly nominating George Bush 2.0 is going to fly with independents in a post-Obama era? Why as Republicans are we are more concerned with retaining our moral high ground in picking a candidate who hits every qualification of a true conservative litmus test than thinking about the national stage of a general election? Why do we still, after all this time, and in all the ways that the world is changing, continue to put a politician front and center who has very little crossover appeal?

That’s still far better than John McCain 2.0.
I wonder if anyone warned her that John McCain was Bob Dole 2.0?
The people who miss President George W. Bush will just ignore Meghan McCain’s warning.
Does anyone pay attention to what this dimwitted itch says?
If it weren’t for her mommy’s money and her daddy’s name, Meghan would be working at Starbucks or Piggly Wiggly (No offense to the people who work hard at Starbucks).
maybe, but perry stands his ground and attacks his attackers.
unlike bush 2, bush 3 and mccain—all of whom were defenseless against the left’s propaganda machine.
Whatever Meghan, Bush won two national elections - two more than you father ever did.
I don’t care. I would vote for Pol Pot if he ran against Zero.
Wow, McCain hates Perry.
Bush hates Perry.
Rove hates Perry.
Romneybots stir up fake Guardisal controvery against Perry.
I didn’t care for Perry, but now I do.

Meghan McCain is Meghan McCain on crack.
If Meghan McCain is trying to piss on him, that makes me want to reconsider my reservations.
Meghan McCain is Dixie Chick 2.0
Meghan Mc Cain?? Can’t believe anyone would give this PORTLY DITS a platform. Then again, the Daily Beast isn’t exactly conservative friendly
