Bachmann Perry Overdrive

Unbeatable combo?

Hard to say that.

I think they would make a strong pairing in 2012. Which actually heads the ticket could be decided down the road. They could agree to let the voters decide based on primary performances while making it known they would be partners either way. It would be unique in the history of politics to form a team so early. We are in unique times.

While politically I think I am more aligned with Bachmann, I suspect Perry would capture the top. Some of the advantages this partnership could offer:

Perry is strong with traditional conservatives while his secession talk endeared him to Tea Partiers a bit. He has more executive experience than any modern President save maybe Eisenhower. Even the Northeast Establishment would probably accept him. And he bought me a beer at El Arroyo in Austin at the 2010 RedState Gathering.:)

Bachmann is probably the current Tea Party favorite. I suspect that traditional conservatives are not her biggest fans. She has on more than one occasion castigated her own leadership publicly. She has practically n0ne of the negatives Palin has in terms of polling.

There are unanswered questions here like “will Perry get in?”

Such an early pairing would send a clear, “this ain’t the usual politickin message.”

I think it would also push practically every other Republican out of the primary as the contest would quickly become about which of the two would head the ticket with people lining up on either side of the two instead of watching the multitude divide all of the conservatives and Tea Partiers and thus paving the way for a RINO like Romney to win.

    • He may be right on the issues but I can’t get away from his wimpiness. If he’s going to continue being a wimp, Congress will run over him (as in bully him). It’s not enough to be right on the issues. He has to be able to withstand the push.

      • It is still way too early to write off Pawlenty as too wimpy. The left and the DC establishment GOP are also going to be saying that Perry is too Texan, Bachmann has too little executive experience, and Cain has never won an election. We can not allow these elites funnel us in toward their establishment and lefty pick for the GOP nomination. I am comfortable with either of those four and Palin to boot. There are no perfect white knights. We just have the establishment vs the Tea Partiers and grassroots conservatives.

        • It’s not the media telling me this, pilgrim. Romney is the media darling of the moment and all I can say is if the media likes him… RUN AWAY, DON’T WALK. RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN.

          Sorry, still smarting from them handing us McCain in ’08.

          If the media is saying such about Pawlenty I’m afraid they’re merely capitalizing on the obvious. If he develops a backbone in the near future, I’ll reconsider. As for the others you mentioned I can easily support any one of them.; not only easily but happily.

  1. By the time we get to the Florida primary my hope is that the supporters of Perry, Bachmann, and Pawlenty will all coalesce around the candidate who has picked up the most delegates and steam in the early contests in IA, NH, SC, and NV. I worry of them dividing up all of the conservatives and Tea Partiers to give Romney the win.

  2. Concur with Pil and GC, Rogue….way too soon, both these are winners. what’s important to concentrate on now are the losers the MSM want to be winners…Huntsman, Romney, the so-called A-team. Now that Christie came out for global warming (in a big way, too) they’ll want him to get in.

    THEY are afraid of all our guys…let’s enjoy it and make sure they can’t win the propaganda war their trying to wage with moderates and independents.

    • I know where you coming from. I am concerned with Romney potentially winning several early primaries with 35% or 40% and then seeming inevitable.
      I would rather elect practically any of the field vs a statist like Romney. Problem is he has all the money and a relatively uncontested establishment following. I think the establishment can deliver a solid 30% to 40% in almost every state.Without some narrowing of the field he may carry state after state while we try to sort it out.

      Elect Romney and we complete the destruction of the brand.

  3. As I have said in previous comments, I am all in for Perry.
    I really like Bachmann. I even went so far as to call her office and provide whoever answered the phone with the applicable section of the House Rules which allows for a member (members) to declare the Speakership vacant in order to elect a different one after it became glaringly apparent that Boehner has absolutely no spine whatsoever. I was hoping someone from her caucus would have the gumption to do that so she could be nominated for/assume the Speakership instead of the current wimp. I believe Rubio to be a better choice.
    Had I not already felt that way, the idea would have come rocketing to the forefront of my mind yeaterday after I read the article at The Daily Caller which addressed the new and improved policies regarding illegals which just came down from the White House. Basically the insufferable lying cretin is trying to expand his voter base by issuing “new” policy guidelines to ICE instructing them not to deport anyone they catch for any reason. Also, billions (I think 48 billion) of our tax dollars are giong to La Raza to “help” register new voters.
    IMO, the most effective way to negate any potential impact from all of this is with Rubio in the #2 slot… and he is quite stellar, conservative, and tremendously appealing in his own right to boot. And he can deliver a speech without a teleprompter… WOW!

    I just came back from the site formerly known as Prince and there is a post you shoulld all read. It seems Chucky-boy Schumer intends to send a bill through which would have the Senate abdicate its vetting of potential presidential appointees in toto. It seems he and Lamar and Mitch and Olympia and Scott feel the vetting/approval process is far too time consuming for them to bother. Exactly how they are spending their time is unclear. What is clear is that they are not working on a budget, nor on defecit reduction, nor on entitlement reform… so just exactly what are they doing?
    there is also a link to a speech by Marco Rubio in there which is very much worth the read.

  5. Missed the one about non-deportation – thanks.
    There is an angle that needs to be developed in the next year, and it is completely true and legitimate: People are DYING. Watched an interview with a mad-as-hell ATF agent last night.
    Excluding Dupnik and a couple others, Sheriffs all over are begging for the administration to do something. Along with the misery index, there needs to be a DEATH INDEX.

      • For Bob:
        “Chuckie and Mitch up in a tree…..”

        seriously, if Schumer rams this one through we are truly doomed.
        Is anyone out there a lawyer? Could they be impeached for abdicating their stated/sworn to duties? Please say yes.
