Meet Rick Perry’s wife

Meet Rick Perry’s wife

Anita Perry talks 2012, Rick’s glasses, and how her husband has grown since his last presidential campaign

Speaking from a plane hanger in a Dallas suburb Thursday afternoon, Governor Perry officially launched his second bid for the White House. Flanked by Navy SEALs, Perry was introduced by his wife, Anita.

Meet the former first lady of Texas, Anita Perry. Over the years, I’ve often heard Governor Perry refer to Anita as, “his rock” and it’s easy to see why.

Perry’s Coaxer in Chief as CNN called her, addressed one of the most crucial issues of Perry’s 2016 campaign — his glasses.

“He’s got these new glasses that have gotten a lot of attention,” observes CNN, “What do you think? Did he need a new image?”

“No, he needed the glasses to see! I mean, this really just tickles me, it makes me laugh. He needed those glasses from a childhood injury when he was 16 or 17-years-old and the vision in one eye deteriorated such that he had to have the glasses. So I picked them out. Really, I like him without the glasses, but he had to have them to see.”

I think he’d make a good President.

Please tell me this is tongue in cheek, a bit of sarcasm.

Saw Perry on Hannity last night. He sounded very good indeed and is on my short list with Walker and Cruz.

How did a schmuck like that get a wife like that?

    Schmuck? You better be kidding, Mouse.

      Well schmuck in sort of the generic sense. Not in the literal sense.
      It’s not something I have against Perry, who I would not have to hold my nose when voting for like a lot of candidates. Though I might not vote for him in the priamries, it would be because he’s the lesser of two goods.

      But you do have to admit, he has married out of his league.

    Well, maybe the answer is in your question. Size matters, right little rodent?


Perry is a good man, I like his style and grit! He needs to go through this trial of willowing our field of potential presidential nominees! He and all the others need to face that hostile fire they all go through.

I’m snapping at the bit for Perry’s inauguration. He was my guy last time, and he’s my guy this time.

There are other good candidates such as Walker and Cruz, even Kasich, but Perry is a proven winner when it comes to leadership and thoughtful reform. He’s not the soaring orator that Cruz and Rubio are, but if he can continue to present himself the way he did on Hannity, he might have a chance. Down to earth, common sense, get ‘er done, straighten this crap out that obola has created. According to the gang on Bret Baier, he’s been raising a lot of money in TX.

I was especially impressed by how well he spoke of the other candidates.

The wife is lovely. I think she’d make a fine first lady. I won’t even point out the differences between her and what we have now, lol.
