Bush was a disaster and he did nothing to control spending. He gave out 12 vetos in 8 years and he had a good record in Texas before he became President.
The last thing you need as Republicans is for George W. Bush to be a big part of the election via another Governor from Texas. It's the same reason Jeb Bush isn't running. The Democrats will say the Republicans want Bush back in the White House so much they went back to Texas and nominated George W. Bush 2.0.
It's suicide for the Republicans and it's too soon after Bush to nominate another Governor from Texas.
By a wide margin, more Americans blame former President George W. Bush for the national economic outlook than they do President Barack Obama, according to a new poll.
Numbers out of Quinnipiac University Thursday morning indicated that 54 percent of Americans say Bush is to blame for exploding the federal deficit and swelling unemployment, whereas just 27 percent believe it is President Obama's fault

All Perry would have to do is show off his record as Governor of Texas, and challenge Obama to do the same as President.
Results vs Rhetoric would be a great campaign theme.
