    Rick Perry Vetting and Palinizing

    Rick Perry Vetting and Palinizing

    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 either survive it (which I think he will) or if he doesn’t, better to find out sooner rather than later.

    I read the original Pesky Truth blog post “Seventeen Things Critics That Critics Are Saying About Rick Perry” and it clarified many things about him for me. I even asked the author about the Geller article and he wrote an eighteenth post addressing Perry and his dealings with the Aga Khan.

    The author to me seems authoritative — he has made a full disclosure of his votes for Perry over the decades, and seems to have solid research to back up every one of his points. As with everything else in politics, the truth is many shades of grey rather than stark black and white.

    So it’s very curious to me that so many pundits on the Right think this blog author is just “making excuses” for Perry. If these pundits (Geller, Malkin, Riehl, et. al.) have their own agenda about their own preferred candidate, then they should just come out with it. To me, their claims seem to be just so much sniping about Perry, when I do not see similar vetting from them about Romney (especially) or Bachmann.

    From what I’ve observed about Perry in this past week, he seems to have Obama’s number. I’ve not seen anything equivalent with Romney, albeit his exchange with the hecklers in Iowa. I was surprised to hear that from him — I was unaware that he knew how to raise his voice.

    “Texas is the sponge soaking up Obama’s unemployment mess.”

    Just saw this L.I. post title … this should be the Perry campaign’s mantra when the Obama administration inevitably tries to use fudgey statistics to discredit Perry’s Texas jobs record.

    Surely some people in the Perry campaign read Legal Insurrection and will run with the image this post title conjures up. Pretty Please !!!

    The lefties will try to portray Governor Perry’s jobs growth history as Fool’s Gold … but … when the electorate takes off the jeweler’s loupe … they’ll have determined it’s not gold nor fool’s gold. They’ll declare it … Kryptonite.

    I have another slogan Perry can use. Vote Perry: No more Mom Jeans.

    Gov. Perry will go around and just talk to people. He’ll explain how we live in Texas and people will begin to remember what it’s like to live where government is mostly local and businesses engage in healthy competition. Every time Texas does another tort reform another industry flees to Texas to open up shop. Doctors have been coming here in droves to practice medicine. Folks will begin to ask themselves how come we don’t do that here. The blue states will hate him & he’s #1 Demon to Unions. Texas is a right to work state.
    Common sense conservatism.

    A major publication has just come out with an article about the vile ad that is going to be published in a little known newspaper in Texas (that has about six readers). The major publication’s excuse is: while we think this is vile, let us show it to you. (snark, snark).

    That is like saying you disagree with porn, but are more than happy to show your collection of porn movies to your friends so they can see what you object to. How stupid do some of these major publications think people are?

    Last night I read an article debunking the Texas Miracle myth. Except………..the author went on to say that Obama was doing a great job and the Stimulus needed to be much, much larger and we needed another one. Nah, no bias there.

    This is not the first shot to be fired at Governor Perry, and it won’t be the last. He’s got Obama on the run. Sending Arne Duncan out to do a hit piece on Texas schools, while Duncan has an absolute dismal record as head of the Chicago school district, tells you a lot. I don’t think Texas teachers, even those who vote Democrat, will appreciate Duncan telling them they are doing a lousy job.
