Rick Perry Tag

You need no better example of the political corruption of our mainstream media than the page 1 headline at The Washington Post, At Perry camp, racially charged name lingered. There is no story behind the headline. The article itself reveals that the offensive name of the camp,...

I guess I don't understand the world of big time bloggers and CNN commentators who support presidential candidates. I thought that if you support a candidate, you don't go out of your way to turn people against your candidate. But what do I know? I'll give Rick Perry...

What's doing? Palin's appearance on Greta last night certainly leaves the impression she's not running, and the reasons she articulated may very well be what she is thinking, not just cover talk: If someone doesn't deeply want it, they should not run. Chris Christie (regardless of his...

Rick Perry is pushing back against criticism of his debate performances, particularly the Florida debate, by arguing that we should not elect the smoothest debater: "As conservatives we know that values and vision matter. It’s not who is the slickest candidate or the smoothest debater that...

My initial reaction last night was that Rick Perry did not have a good night. My reaction this morning is that he had a disastrous night, possibly ending his chances of getting the nomination unless he gets his act together real soon.  I say "possibly" because it...

Via HotAir, Mitt Romney has scored two significant conservative endorsements recently, Jeff Flake and Darrel Issa.  While that may not constitute a coalescing around Romney, it does help insulate him from RINO charges.  Whatever he once was, is he now the conservative who can win? What's up...

See dissent is patriotic. I disagree with Matt Knee's post earlier quoting Megan McArdle and Bryon Preston on the Rick Perry Gardasil issue. It's not a huge issue for me, but it's also not a health care issue since it's a question of the mandatory nature. The question...

This strikes me as more significant than Pawlenty for Romney, because it represents the future of the Republican Party coming out for Perry, whereas Pawlenty in many ways represented the past.  Via CNN: Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is backing Rick Perry for president, a major endorsement...

In a post at NRO, praising Romney without bashing other Republican candidates: But he’s not only a family man, he is a man of principle. He believes in the bedrock conservative ideals of limited government and free enterprise. He will stand up for America’s allies when they...

I thought Romney did well last night, as did Perry (although expectations were higher for Perry).  Newt was the star. But, Romney's post-debate performance by his messaging team was horrid, playing the "kill social security card" on Perry.  We can quibble about whether the social security...

All this talk about Rick Perry being too much like Dubya has infiltrated the brain of the person who tweets for The Hill. From @thehill: From The Hill, at the link in the tweet:  Just a mistake, or creating a story?...

It's lonely out here in independent blogger world, working for the greater glory not the greater paycheck. That's not to say bloggers who work for The Man are not independent thinkers and writers, but the pressures are there depending upon who The Man is: An escalating series of...

A ringing endorsement of Rick Perry from Kinky Friedman, with as many laughs per square inch as any endorsement I have ever seen (emphasis mine): I have been quoted as saying that when I die, I am to be cremated, and the ashes are to be thrown in...

Rudy famously waited too long in 2008, by skipping Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, assuming he would win big in Florida.  He didn't, because by the time the primaries arrived in Florida, Rudy was an also ran. Back in July I suggested that Mitt Romney...

It's coming too fast and furious, and in some cases is too bizarre, to summarize here.  And some of the charges are not worth repeating. While I'm sure his supporters are frustrated, they shouldn't be. Better to get it all out there and deal with it now.  He'll...

There is a very interesting blog post at Political Math (via Instapundit) explaining why the attacks on Rick Perry based on Texas' job growth will fail. The attack on Perry, which the Axelrod/Plouffe message machine is pushing, is that Texas still has unemployment near the national average, any...

Rick Perry hasn't formally announced that he is running for President, but this interview with Mark Halperin of Time (the guy who famously dropped the "D" bomb on Obama) makes pretty clear Perry is running and that rumors of a rift between Bush and Perry...
