Rick Perry Is Not A “Serious” Candidate

Rick Perry launches comeback White House bid

This time, Rick Perry has nowhere to go but up.

Four years after his first presidential campaign was crushed by the weight of his debate gaffe and stump speech mishaps, the governor who spent 14 years presiding over Texas launched his second bid for the Republican nomination on Thursday.

“I’m running for the presidency of the United States,” Perry said at a heated rally in Addison, Texas, adding earlier “we don’t have to settle for a world in chaos or an America that shrinks from its responsibilities.”

At his event Thursday, he was flanked by a list of military veterans, including several Navy SEALs and Taya Kyle, the widow of “American Sniper” Chris Kyle, and Marcus Luttrell, who Perry called a “second son” — a group that allows Perry to highlight his five years in the Air Force.

Perry has ditched the signature cowboy boots and added black-rimmed glasses. He’s spent the intervening years recovering from health problems and boning up on policy.

Now, Perry is asking GOP primary voters for a second chance.

“Let’s give them a second chance. Let’s give them real leadership,” Perry said, describing disillusioned Americans in a way that he could very much be describing himself.

Perry’s speech at Addison Airport outside Dallas — delivered without pause for more than 20 minutes even as sweat dripped down his face — focused primarily on foreign policy, which has been his calling card of late on the stump. His GOP competitors emerging from the U.S. Senate have looked down on the class of governors for lacking that foreign policy experience.


Perry struggled badly during his 2012 campaign. He entered the Republican race to great conservative fanfare in August 2011 and unseated Mitt Romney from the party’s pole position — but quickly saw that status erode.

There was the “oops” moment in a CNBC debate, when Perry couldn’t remember the name of one of the three federal agencies he said he wanted to abolish. There was also a New Hampshire speech where voters wondered aloud afterward whether he’d been drinking.

There you have it. The media hath decreed that Rick Perry is not a “serious” candidate. He’s a flop, a failure, a dud. He flamed out in 2012 and that’s all that matters. (Hillary lost in 2008 but they don’t keep bringing that up over and over again.)

That was just CNN, but that is the general theme of all the major news media including Fox. The openly partisan Left Wing media is even worse.

As for myself, I moved Perry up to my number two choice behind Scott Walker, and I may move him to number one. They both have successful experience in executive governance. Perry has more, plus he’s been studying foreign policy and he has hands on experience dealing with illegal immigration. Walker on the other hand has shown he can win elections in a blue state. They both have credibility when it comes to cutting budgets and reducing the size of government.

But as far as the media is concerned they are both badly flawed candidates who are prone to making gaffes. Walker has been investigated and Perry has been indicted. And they’re stupid.

Fuck the truth. Stick to the narrative. Drink your Hillary Koolaid.

      Loved reading the comments under ‘Things I learned From The Left”. They are so good that I might borrow a few. Thanks.

    Perry’s very good looking.
    That puts him ahead of Walker IMO.

  5. Myiq2xu says:

    He almost made it.

    I have not seen anyone enter the race that would make me change my mind on voting for a Walker-Cruz ticket.

    “There was also a New Hampshire speech where voters wondered aloud afterward whether he’d been drinking.”
    That’s a doozey of a closer. Last line accuses him of being a drunk if he were a celebrity he would sue. Of course unfounded accusations against a star are far worse than a former governor.
    Speaking of stars Clooney’s latest is epic fail. Another preachy Hollywood movie no one wants to see. The trade papers are bending over backwards trying to excuse it and exempt George from all blame. He has had one non franchise hit since 2000’s the Perfect Storm and that was a Sandra Bullocks vehicle. 15 years with money losing flops and no one in the press calls him washed up? He is supposed to personify some sort of Hollywood royalty. He is no Cary Grant.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      Clooney is okay when he sticks to acting.

      • mothy67 says:

        His expensive movies still flop. There are a few actors whose politics have become bigger than them and I can’t not see it when I watch. Interesting is that its almost all guys. Sarandon doesn’t bother me, but Clooney, Penn and Hanks I find so annoying. Julianne Moore was a distraction in Mockingjay. I don’t want to spend 10 on a movie to be annoyed every time a face appears. I see Dicraprio and think hypocrit.

        • lizzy says:

          I get traumatized just thinking about “Leo”. He was so awful in Titanic that I can’t see him in anything without needing my barf bag.

      Valet parkers get tipped. Big tips. They don’t make 10 bucks an hour.

      • mothy67 says:

        I think 20 is standard.

        • Lulu says:

          That’s what my hubby gives and he is cheap. I see 50’s in Houston and Dallas. A friend and her husband drove their pickup because their car had a dead battery. It was a wedding at the River Oaks Country Club. They roared up in a dirty pickup and the valet guy looked horrified. Her husband handed him a fifty and said be careful with that truck you might get cow shit on your pants.

        • lildoggy4u says:

          I’ll never forget valet parking my brand new convertible and watching as 3 other people jumped in as the car rounded the corner and off they went for a joyride. I’ve been skeptical of using valet ever since.

  14. Myiq2xu says:

    Of course she doesn’t recognize any of those men. He’s surrounded by war heroes.

    • Lulu says:

      She is still trying to make a career out out of being a snarky, hateful dumbass. She should stick to subjects she knows like weird adultery with ugly people in DC.

    The Mrs had her job moved to Dallas, TX two years ago. A ton of companies have left FL, CA and other places to move to Dallas. Rick Perry went out and convinced companies to make the move. Very smart .. not sure what he offered them — but I can tell you it has bolstered the economy down here. I think of all the money we’ve spent going out to eat, home improvements, etc. etc.

    BTW – we are moving back to CA in July. The Mrs needs to be near her family and since they retired her 8 months after the move ……

  26. 1539days says:

    Of course, Rick Perry went back after 2012 and studied foreign policy. Remember when the left suggested Sarah Palin did that to be ready to be a national player after 2008? I doubt they’re going to give Perry any slack regardless.

  27. 1539days says:

    In 2011, Rick Perry hired the guy who made Tim Pawlenty’s cinematic campaign ads. I sure as hell hope he gets that guy back.
