After months of hinting and winking, the right-wing Governor of Texas, Rick Perry, appears set to make clear this Saturday his intention to seek the Republican presidential nomination next year and create instant tumult in the race, not least because of its devil-may-care timing.

While the official word yesterday from the Perry camp remained a coy "stay tuned", Mr Perry is expected to confirm his presidential aspirations at a conference in South Carolina on the day that the party's attention was meant to be focused on the Ames Straw Poll, a traditional event in Iowa that usually helps to weed out the weakest from the field of runners.

It was also confirmed last night that Mr Perry will speak at a Republican event in Iowa on Sunday. While the results of the straw poll and the performance of all the existing candidates in a televised debate in Iowa tomorrow evening will remain critical, nothing will provide a bigger jolt than the addition of Mr Perry to the mix.

Few doubt that he will move quickly towards the front of the pack to challenge the strongest runners, Mitt Romney and the Tea Party darling Michele Bachmann.

So, finally a credible candidate for the right. Not only is it that he has been the Governor of Texas, THE economic powerhouse of the US economy in recent years. Not only is it that he is liked by the Tea Party members, but he got the nickname: Lucky. Apparently he can't lose an election!

Here is a good description of his ideals from [url=http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/cifamerica/2011/aug/10/rick-perry-mitt-romney?INTCMP=SRCH]The Guardian



Perry's reputation, though hardly pristine, could help winnow the field. His prayer event last weekend gives him credentials on the religious right to rival Bachmann; his brief flirtation with secession puts him squarely in competition for neo-libertarian votes with Representative Ron Paul; his love of tax cuts and business-friendly environments rivals Cain's; and his full head of hair gives Romney a run for his money. He hates same-sex marriage, loves the death penalty, talks down a centralised federal government (even as, apparently, he wants to lead it) and is not one to shy away from criticising the current administration or its signature achievement, the healthcare reform bill.


Oh and here goes the heartstrings:


Unlike Romney, the wealthy scion of a political family, Perry has a compelling (and more understandable) personal history: unlike New Gingrich, he's still married to his high-school sweetheart and, like former President Bill Clinton, he battled his way out of poverty to the governor's mansion.


Even though one comment to the Guardian story says:


Perry is a fraud, actually. As they say in Texas, he is 'all hat and no cattle'.
He jumped onto the tea party bandwagon with rhetoric but not real support of issues, and everyone in Texas knows it.
PPP did a poll of head to head contenders against Obama last month and Perry LOST to Obama, in Texas. In TEXAS!!

Romney, Ron Paul and Bachmann all beat Obama in Texas in the same poll.


But Texas won't decide the election and they sure as hell aren't going to vote against their Governor if he is the candidate. Perry, assuming he wins the nomination WILL win the main vote because he is shrewd as they come. He is gonna take all the mainstream Ron Paul votes and some.

Anyway get your money on now - Perry the next President of the USA.

the way i see it right now we have already had a president from texas

its too soon and if history plays out like it normally does he wont be potus.

i have never heard of potus being back to back from the same state even tho its not really back to back.

as much as i dont like romney right now i see him getting the republican nomination.

dont really have anything to say bad about perry just dont see him being potus.

of course i said the same thing about our current potus.

Any other candidate then i would agree, but Perry is a political chameleon, democrat first republican second. Arch manipulator. Don't forget the word Bush only becomes important if the media use it. That will be obscured, washed over IMHO. It will the ol "boy done good", humble background startpoint and then this election will be all about the economy, nothing more. Obama CANNOT win whoever he is up against because of the diminishing value of the electors pockets. Perry has a phenomenal record in Texas economically, it is the last piece of the jigsaw for any opposing candidate.

From the looks of him Perry could be George HW Bush's son, albeit by another mother...

Our next President will be from Texas - it's true. However, his name won't be Rick Perry.

Here's a hint:

He recently won the Texas GOP poll.

He also has more military donations than all the other candidates - COMBINED!

Rick Perry is described as "part of the status quo."

Can you guess who I'm talking about?


RON PAUL 2012!!!

Looks like he is getting Sirius about running for the presidency then.

Appreciate your efforts at outing the man. Ugh I wish everyone would realize we are being played. . . CFR again.

I like both Romney and Perry because of their economic chops. (As far as I'm concerned I could care less if they were both BALD...what that has to do with getting this country back on track, I've no idea!
) There's not really a candidate I totally dislike. But I just hope that the GOP can keep from splintering into factions, get behind their nominee (and pray God that nominee is VIABLE...not particularly like the last one) and get him or her elected!! I'm not sure I can (or we can) take another sixteen months of what we've got now...much less five more years.........................

If you though George W. Bush was an idiot, just wait until you hear more from Rick Perry. If you thought Dick Cheney was a corporate tool, just wait until you find out more about Rick Perry. If you thought Sarah Palin didn't know anything about history, economy, the environment, the world, or much else you can't find outside the Bible, just wait until you get a better look at Rick Perry. He combines all the deficits of these lovelies and more. He makes me ashamed to be an American.


about sums up what i have to say about perry...shill extraordinaire...

Hey guys, agree with you. I didnt say I supported the idea of him becoming the next President I just said from what I can see he will be. He is just such a manipulator with a story and a record, military and economically that I cannot see how he will lose once he gains the nomination. Unless a story comes out that he bites the heads off new born babies and thats why he is against abortion, then he will be sitting in an oval office near you pretty soon
IMHO

Can a Texas governor be good for the country? Possibly. The problem is that Rick Perry is hated by everyone I know from Texas (and stays informed). He must really be lucky (or a cheater) because he doesn't seem very popular.

My main problem however, is the same one I had with Bush: It says a lot about a politician when he's willing to trash his current obligations in favor of a 'higher office'. When the people vote you in office, it's your obligation to them to remain for your term!

got a link? not being rude just would be cool to parachute in to what you have been reading.

(As for the Jebster he needed a two term Obama IMO for his own run)

Said Bush Jr. in a statement: “Jon Huntsman is the best-prepared candidate to defeat President Obama in Florida and across the country. I am confident that his vision will appeal to young voters, who are alarmed at the trillions of dollars in debt being passed to our generation and who desperately seek jobs and economic opportunity. Washington needs a conservative problem-solver with Jon Huntsman’s record of results." Read more: www.miamiherald.com...

Perry has already been chosen to be the next president & he will choose Palin to be his VP.
We ARE being played.

Thank you very much for the link - not something I would ever have come across. It would fit for Jeb to back a dead horse for the next election manouvering himself into place for the one after. Huntsman really is going nowhere - zero profile nationally. Funny though how Jeb refers to the "young" and then "our generation" in the same sentence in his speech, it is funny seeing the manipulative language in black and white that these scumbags use in their normally listened to or watched soundbites.

Pics or it didn't happen!

Anyway, I triple that:


Ricky's got a lot of Santorum in him (ewww) in the sense they both have that perfect GOP look and platforms that seem to be read from a playbook. Between the two of them, they cover the fiscally and morally conservative folks. I think his entry is meant to detract from Ron Paul.
