Yes: it’s time to consider Rick Perry

I wanted to expand on Jaded’s hot-off-the-presses video scoop. First, the video, by the new site Time For Perry, a group not backed by or affiliated with Perry:


The current crop of Republican candidates and prospective candidates is a good group. Don’t let the Democrat media machine convince you it is lackluster. There are good people there, several of whom would beat Obama hands down. Of course, of course, all of them have their weaknesses, and several I frankly don’t care for. But there is quality and elective power in there.

And now Texas Governor Rick Perry seems poised to run for President. To run over his whole resume would take some time. Like everybody, he has his strengths and weaknesses. Like him or not, if he announces, Mitt Romney is no longer the front-runner. Here’s the top few reasons:

  • He is the 11-year governor of one of the biggest states. Among all those big states, Texas is by far in the best economic condition, the most business-friendly, and the highest on barack’s enemy list. It has a relatively low unemployment numbers and has a balanced budget by law.
  • Texas is currently at war with the EPA, and is having more success than most states that defy the Obamanistas.
  • Perry is head of the Republican Governors Association. He has used that platform to stoke a nation-wide pro Tenth Amendment movement.
  • He is a strong and vocal social conservative.
  • He is largely considered well by the tea party movement.
  • He is hated and feared by the Republican Establishment.
  • He is very decent at voicing and teaching the conservative viewpoint.
  • He’s got presidential hair. Hey, don’t laugh. OK, laugh. But it makes a difference. George W Bush had unruly hair, and he barely managed to beat ManBearPig in the 2000 election. So there. It’s important.
  • There is something about Texas. To be governor there is to dwell in the nation’s epicenter of all things anti-Beltway Establishment. He has the nation’s attention, no matter who he is. But he has thrived in that position, and in doing so has drawn a ton of positive attention.

All indications are pointing toward Perry getting in the race, and soon. The site linked above, it’s about to go live. If you want to join in the party, go ahead, and sign up there at Time For Perry.

E Pluribus Unum
The weapons had evolved, but our orders remained the same: Hunt them down and kill them off, one by one. A most successful campaign. Perhaps too successful. For those like me, a Death Dealer, this signaled the end of an era. Like the weapons of the previous century, we, too, would become obsolete. Pity, because I lived for it.

  1. This could be classic. The 10th against Obama statism. Lamestream heads will explode.

    BTW, EPA head Lisa Jackson was in Austin today. Didn’t bother to drop in on Perry but did take time to say there was nothing hard for Texas to meet in the EPA guideline.

    Nice timing Lisa, coming on the heels of ERCOT’s warning to conserve energy during the heatwave or we could see, yeah, rolling blackouts on the electrical grid.

    Guess all the windmills in West TX can’t keep up. Stupid GREENFAIL. Barely any wind the last 2 weeks.

    • My Dad has a story about a fishing trip he took to South Dakota. On the drive out to the Missouri River the wind was blowing, hard, as it does across the Great Plains. All the windmills were shut off, they can’t run them if the wind is too fast. Once they got to the river he noticed that the spring rains had the water levels way up, the hydro-electric power plants were shut down, too much water running too fast through the turbines will destroy them. Had to shut them down till the water was at a manageable level. But off on the horizon was the carbon laden smoke from the coal fired power plants, still plugging along through wind, rain, sleet and snow, powering a Nation.

      • Windpower is losing some of its appeal to the libs. They were oh so sexy when they were in Holland and Palm Springs, but now that it’s worked out that they work best and are most prolific in the plains States area from TX up to ND—how droll, Flyover Country. And there’s a little problem with the bird and tree huggers – windturbines have a new name, “Bird Cuisinarts.” What’s a Lib to do when two of their cherished causes, head-on plow into each other? Go find another trendy cause, I guess. Whales again, anyone?

  2. Eyes on the prize, the 2012 Electoral College map. Any Gov of TX comes with an automatic regional power base with a 100 or so electoral college votes, his own state’s 38 plus OK, now LA, UT, ID, SC, MS and AL and others in the South and West. Can he raise the money fast enough? Probably what he has been checking out. Does he have any game stopper skeletons in the closet the MSM will ferret out? Only he knows. It is going to take a direct assault, take no prisoners political power play to get the current thugs wrenched out of the WH.
