    One of the most striking lines of President Bush's new memoir, Decision Points, is the line in which he tells aides, "If we're really looking at another Great Depression, you can be damn sure I'm going to be Roosevelt, not Hoover." Mr. Bush may want to check out the new book by his successor as governor of Texas, Rick Perry, Fed Up!, as a corrective. Mr. Perry writes that the claim that Roosevelt's New Deal ended the Depression is a "fraud" that "simply does not stand up to history." He writes, "Consider that when FDR took office in 1933, unemployment...

    “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in...

    Americans love westerns in the style of Clint Eastwood, with his rough-talking, hard-hitting, clean-up-the-town bravado that brings a secure assurance that everything is going to be “righted” “rescued” and peace will reign again. It is no wonder then in this primary season Americans are looking for a leader to deliver us from the malaise and fear of the destructive direction the current administration has taken this country. Voters ask, where is our America? The America that is the “light of the world” and place where people of all countries have desired to come, prosper and be called an “American”? Where...

    The telegenic Texan took two steps forward sitting in the “center chair” on Fox Monday evening. One step backward too alas, but more about that in a bit. Gov Perry was relaxed and alert as he fielded a variety of questions. He smartly used his answers to remind conservatives why they should consider him. This is a man who is a quick study and a formidable politician. Instead of just Texas this and Texas that he pointed out that the Lone Star state all by its lonesome is the 13th largest economy in the world. A nice way to pivot...

    These Fox News Special Report "center seat" interviews - questioning by 3 or 4 Fox News regulars - start off on TV, and then usually move online at 7PM EST - at the link above. I think these are pretty intensive & fair interviews; the last one with Gingrich was very informative. Hope Perry proves to the world he's not the idiot of popular caricature; he's my 2nd choice, if Gingrich should fall.

    JACKSON, MISS. - As president, Rick Perry would not uphold spending cuts required if the congressional supercommittee fails to meet next week's deadline for a plan to reduce federal spending by $1.2 trillion, the Republican presidential candidate said Thursday. "Not at all," Perry told reporters here when asked whether he would allow the draconian cuts - including $600 billion from the Pentagon -- to take place if he is in the White House in January, 2013. The Texas governor insists that his plan to lower taxes and reduce regulations will make the cuts unnecessary by stimulating the economy. Perry decried...
  • Hot Air exclusive: Perry raises $17.1 million in Q3

    A source on the Rick Perry campaign tells Hot Air that the Texas governor conducted some Texas-size fundraising in the third quarter. Coming in just a little over halfway through, Perry raised $17.1 million. That number would put Perry somewhere between $4-6 million ahead of Mitt Romney’s rumored total for Q3, according to this report last week from the Boston Globe. It’s also likely to far outpace Herman Cain’s fundraising or that of the other Republicans currently in the race. The pace is even more impressive. Perry had 49 days in which to raise funds, rather than the full 92...

    Rick Perry today announced his leadership team for Presidency 5, tapping Florida House Speaker Dean Cannon serving as chairman. “Florida is critical to the presidential nomination process, so I look forward to bringing my pro-jobs, conservative message to Florida and the Presidency 5 events,” Gov. Perry said. “Floridians care about jobs, fiscal responsibility and ending Obamacare and other federal excesses. I am pleased to have the opportunity to share my record and vision for job creation and fiscal conservatism with the voters of the Sunshine State.” “Gov. Perry knows that the path to the nomination and eventually the White House...

    After devoting his first New York campaign trip to Donald Trump and Fashion Week fetes, 2012 presidential hopeful Rick Perry is getting down to business this time around. Perry is back in Manhattan this week, courting voters in the city's large Hispanic and Jewish communities — two typically Democratic voting blocs that the GOP hopes to woo away in 2012. The Texas Governor is hosting a rally with Israeli politicians and Jewish-American activists at the W Hotel tomorrow morning. The event is centered around President Obama's visit to the United Nations and the Palestinian application for statehood, expected to be...

    September 18, 2011 "We have had several Texas presidents, but none so deeply, intensely Texas as this guy would be." Man, Rick Perry is freaking out the New York Times. Gail Collins is all: You think of Rick Perry, you think of Texas. And more Texas. Perry the cowboy coyote-killer, the lord of the Texas job-creation machine, the g-dropping glad-hander with a “howdy” for every stranger in the room. He barely exists in the national mind outside of the Texas connection.And Maureen Dowd is all over the place talking about Perry with references to an obvious and old Hollywood movie....

    AUSTIN – President Obama’s socialized medicine plan was dealt a serious blow today by a new Beacon Hill Institute study showing that Governor Mitt Romney’s “RomneyCare” plan has cost 18,000 jobs and $8 billion. “If RomneyCare killed 18,000 jobs in Massachusetts, imagine what ObamaCare will do to a U.S. economy already hurting from too much liberalism,” said Perry spokesman Ray Sullivan. “These government-mandated health schemes kill too many jobs and cost too much. RomneyCare’s job-killing results are another reason ObamaCare must be stopped.” Yesterday, Governor Romney defended RomneyCare at a town hall meeting in Sun Lakes, Arizona, saying, “I like...

    One man's fight against the church of Obamacentrism. It’s open season on Republican front-runner Rick Perry. A favorite charge is that he’s ignorant and anti-science. Some of Perry’s recent remarks about anthropogenic global warming — for example, that there is a “substantial number of scientists who have manipulated data,” and that “weekly or daily” scientists are “coming forward and questioning” AGW — have his critics nearly chortling with glee as they derisively dismiss such an obvious dummy. Thomas Friedman of the New York Times jokingly calls Perry crazy for alleging that “climate change is some fraud perpetrated by scientists trying...

    The poll, conducted by Insider Advantage for the Florida Times-Union, shows Perry leading the field with 29 percent support. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney comes in second with 20 percent support. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is a distant third with 9 percent. Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann has 8 percent support, businessman Herman Cain has 6 percent, and Texas Rep. Ron Paul has 5 percent. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum garners 2 percent support, and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman rounds out the field with just over 1 percent.

    There were two questions going into Monday's GOP presidential debate, which was sponsored by CNN and the Tea Party Express. First, who would emerge as the victor in the battle between Mitt Romney​ and Rick Perry, the two Republican front-runners, over Social Security. Second, which candidates would elbow their way into the conversation? Perry Wins Battle Against Romney After Perry characterized Social Security as a "Ponzi scheme" in a debate last week in California at the Reagan Library, Romney tried to pounce on those comments by accusing Perry of trying to kill Social Security. Romney tried to depict Perry as...

    They say it ain’t over ’til it’s over or the fat lady sings at least a dozen times, finally making all the high notes in Aida and La Traviata in succession. Nevertheless — after only his second debate — things do look pretty good for Rick Perry. And consider before this Tampa debate he was already twelve points ahead of nearest rival Mitt Romney, according to its sponsor’s (CNN) own poll. So it’s no surprise that most of Monday’s affair — which mostly reprised the same questions from last week’s Reagan Library debate (this all could get pretty tedious fast)...

    According to the commentariat, Governor Rick Perry has stepped into a pile of electoral cow manure. Perry had the unrivaled gall to tell the truth about Social Security — that the program is, by design, a Ponzi scheme. As President Eloquent might say, the talking heads are “all wee-weed up.” Personally, I’d like to give Rick Perry a medal for courage and a laurel wreath for leadership. He has signaled his intention to speak truth boldly in terms real people can understand. Of course, Social Security is essentially a Ponzi scheme, fully dependent upon adequate numbers of new “investors” (workers)...

    Betcha didn’t see this one coming. On MSNBC’s Thursday broadcast of “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews committed the mortal sin — he nearly parroted the theory that mortified so many of the network’s hosts and guests throughout the day. Matthews called Social Security “a Ponzi scheme” the day after Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry doubled down on his previous statements echoing that sentiment in the Republican debate (h/t Matt Lewis) Matthews first put forth what he thought Social Security was originally intended to be: “You pay for it while you work. When you retired and have no other form of income,...
