Whether or not he chooses to run, he will be ready, Perry says
Its hard to imagine a presidential campaign that began with as much excitement, money and hope and ended as quickly and dramatically as Texas Gov. Rick Perrys primary bid did three years ago.
Initially touted as an unbeatable conservative alternative to Mitt Romney, Perry quickly proved woefully unprepared for the national spotlight. A series of blunders led the dismantling of his campaign in the first weeks of the 2012 primary contests.

Yes, he said that. And it wasn't back when he was supposedly taking pain medication as he and his defenders claim. It was just one week ago.
Do you think he can string two complete, unscripted sentences together this time?
Horses for courses: he ain’t the horse, and this ain’t the course.
Ted Cruz 2016
Absolutely! That Ted is so popular among conservatives was predictable. Which is probably why Perry endorsed and campaigned for his opponent.
Yeah, I think he’s done. We don’t want anyone who has EVER sincerely given Hitlery any complements on her roles as a puke stain in various offices. Also, Perry’s immigration stance is questionable, he’s gaffed spectacularly, he ran before and lost.
On the other hand, if he is in the primary, he might dilute the amnesty vote.
We are going to have to start strategizing for this 2016 election the second the Midterms are over. I’m going back over the 2012 primary debates and its no wonder Mitt Romney won the nomination. He chewed up Rick Perry without mercy. The Establishment trained him well to divide and conquer, lie about his positions, and woo the audience to cheer for him.
We need to coalesce behind a candidate and launch an all out infowar on the RINOs, whether its Krispy Kreme or stupid Jeb.
Sad to say, but I would hold my nose and vote for Perry. Romney will never get my vote. Period.
Oh boy, I couldn’t care less if I tried, but I suppose I can thank him for my tagline.
Why is it every cycle the same frickin’ losers start strutting around like they goin’ somewhere ;/
As I previously mentioned, we’re going to make the Democrats job very easy...we’ll destroy our own candidates...one by one.
Give it time, some here will disown Cruz before it’s all said and done should he decide to run for POTUS. There will be no candidate who is pure enough, conservative enough, or presidential enough for some here.
Democrats must laugh their a$$es off at us.
The way I saw it was the merciless number of debates killed us, but when Newt caught fire in one, the debate rules were changed to end chances of that ever happening again, ending it once and for all. They had to throw a bag over Newt, tied at the neck. Newt takes South Carolina and Adelson cuts off his money conveniently, as the cash cascade begins in earnest for Mitt with Big Money to take Florida.
Wa-Lah! Newt’s broke, therefore done, and Romney is the “it” guy, but for the short bump for Santorum.
Money and timing was key in ‘12. It will be again.
I don’t see that happening. “Destroying candidates” as you call it is what happens to liberal Republicans like Romney and Perry. Given that Cruz is a solid conservative that will never happen with him. Not here, anyway.
Im all aboard for Cruz 2016, but conservatives have to be even more fervent than Paulbot supporters were in 2012. If we were that zealous and committed, with our numbers, we could get Cruz nominated.
Perry distant 3rd or 4th choice- I don’t think I trust him, even though he has the best executive (economic results) record you could imagine.
He used to be a Democrat and seems just a little bit odd to me- not really married to conservative principles so much as knowing well what sells and works in TX politically
It’s how conservatives allow themselves to be continually divided. Fiscal conservatives seem to be more socially liberal and they tend to be hesitant to vote for a social conservative. Social conservatives seem to be more financially liberal and are hesitant to vote for those who are more strictly fiscally conservative.
The Dems, depending on which conservative audience they are talking to, will point out why a particular conservative should not be voted for and will eke out a win by running up the middle.
It works every time and it is destroying the country.
FMR. He went intramural and then went completely flacid against Barrack.
Then again, he was either Barrack lite or a manager who’s only intent was to climb the ladder in “his” career move.
Just say no to Mr. Rick McCain Romney Perry.
