    I read that he had back surgery right around the time of the debates. I had my eye on Perry a while back, and thought he would be a good candidate. Judging from his performance in the debates, I thought he came off as just another stage managed candidate. This interview shows he can be quick on his feet, with a lil’ “West Texas gib” thrown in to boot.

    Mike Allen is a notorious Obama brown-noser. You can tell he was not used to people shutting down the instigation slight of hand trick. What might have been indeed….

    Perry got the record to boast economic growth, and experience to his benefit. Forget the BS about “all those Texas jobs are low wage” or “those Texas jobs come from federal government contracts/money”. Plenty of states are getting money from the federal government, and are still bleeding jobs as we speak.

    Granted his biggest flaw was his understandably nuanced, but butchered take on immigration.

    Good stuff, no matter what. The more Repubs that push back on the media, especially liberal-biased media, and their attempts to create memes etc, the better.

    Santorum took down David Gregory on Obama’s foreign policy in a way that even others noticed, Perry pushes back, etc.

    I want a party of fighters, and if nothing else, belatedly in some cases, we are seeing some.

    Because its going to be a heck of a fight this year, and every year, for a long time to come.

    Now, if that journalist were fast on his feet, he’d have said something like:

    “Most experts” say it’s wrong for a subject being questioned to demand the journalist reveal his anonymous, fantasy source.

    Now, that’s how you handle a reporter. He wasn’t combative or hostile, but he shut down the false assertions. The bias of reporters/interviewers has been a problem for quite sometime, along with their deliberate pursuit of unimportant sidebars to generate gotcha’s and controversy. This is the type of assertive shutdown that we need in candidates. Newt had already been doing it, but if we can get the entire primary slate on board with delivering these set downs, we might can get back to the topic of running a national election and talking about important issues to voters:

    Issues like JOBS, JOBS, JOBS, JOBS! Perry’s next question to Politico should have been to ask how “speculation about finger pointing among his staffers” relates to the issue of creating a political environment that allows Americans to have JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!

    Under the guise of protecting confidential sources, agenda-biased media is too often allowed to get away with using unsubstantiated rumor as fact. Good push back on the Governor’s part.

      Or simply making stuff up. There used to be a rag called Capitol Hill Blue that was considered very respectable and reliable, until they got caught making stuff up, and it turned out that many of their “anonymous sources” didn’t exist.
