Sure, let's start the speculation about 2016.  It helps take our minds off of Tuesday. And we need to plan ahead for the race against Hillary.  (It will be Hillary, don't you know.  Bill didn't do all that for Obama.) As longtime readers know, we were Perry-curious...

Full speech by Rick Perry withdrawing from the race and endorsing Newt. If you want just the section endorsing Newt, it's here, but I recommend listening to the whole speech, it's worth it. The Perry endorsement is huge not because Perry had a large percentage (although even...

So reports Peter Hamby of CNN via Twitter: Rick Perry will drop out of the Republican presidential race today, two sources tell CNN. Updates:  Perry just scheduled an 11 a.m. press conference. Via HotAir, Perry will endorse Newt. Things are moving fast: The Daily Caller has learned that 100 tea party...

This is the first polling evidence of Newt's surge which has let Romney to relaunch Operation Zany and to haul out Susan Molinari and others to attack Newt. From Rasmussen this morning: The race for the Republican presidential nomination is now nearly even with Mitt Romney still on...

Prior to Rick Perry announcing he would run for President I brought on Katie Thompson to make the case for Perry.  Katie now is a leader of Students for Perry, and I predict, a future mover and shaker in Republican circles. Given all that has happened over...

Rick Perry has been right to do the talk show circuit in the wake of Wednesday's brain freeze, and he has been more impressive in the interviews I have seen in the last 24 hours than in any appearance since he announced in August.  Perhaps if Perry did...

E-mail from reader Scott: The reaction to last nights debate (and Perry’s poor performance in earlier debates) is that Perry is now disqualified from being president. If so, does that mean that Romney and Gingrich, the best debaters, are the only candidates we should consider? Does the...

That's the suggestion made by some readers in response to my post about Rick Perry's brain freeze in last night's debate.  It's also a theme followed up by commenter OwenJ in an e-mail to me, which reads: Some time ago, responding to the response from some...

Full report on CNBC debate here.  The only part that will be remembered is Rick Perry's freeze on stage.  He was having a reasonable debate until that point.  I feel sorry for him.  One freeze on stage should not end a campaign, but the reaction...

Whether Rick Perry ends up showing up at the debates or not, this sends precisely the wrong signal.  This is not May or June.  If you want the nomination, you show up to debates in November and December, without hesitation: After a series of poor debate performances...

Not long ago The Washington Post was digging up rocks from 30 years ago to find dirt about Rick Perry. Now WaPo is digging up immigration papers from 50 years ago about Marco Rubio's parents, Marco Rubio’s compelling family story embellishes facts, documents show.  The gist of WaPo's dramatic...

Florida Governor Rick Scott is proposing refocusing funding away from liberal arts programs at state universities and colleges, which has various groups accusing Scott of being anti-anthropology, or something like that.  Instapundit has the story and lots of reader comments. Let me suggest that Scott is not...

I criticized Mitt Romney's campaign on the night of the Reagan Library debate for having a spokesman claim that Perry wanted to kill social security, linking to this tweet by John McCormack: The Romney campaign has been hitting similar themes for the past month.  It's the...

The smear is long gone from the front pages, but will live on forever in Rick Perry's campaign: “I know for a fact that in 1984, that rock was painted over. It was painted over very soon, my family did that.” Silly you, Rick, you thought WaPo...

In tagging Rick Perry with the "painted-over rock" allegation without first learning the facts? Yes, I think so.  It certainly is fine to point out that the name was offensive, but to suggest that Perry somehow was responsible was a bridge too far (transcript via MVOPOV): WALLACE:...
