In a TIME interview with Mark Halperin when asked whether he wants to run for President Perry's response was:
"Perry: “Sure. I mean I wouldn’t be this far into the process…. The issue of, ‘is this what I want to do?’ was dealt with about 45 days ago in a conversation with my wife. Prior to that, no. Being the President of the United States was not on my radar screen from the standpoint of something I wanted to do.”
Unfortunately, Perry mostly does very well in an interview or debate situation. Two gubernatorial elections ago when Perry debated the Democratic candidate and 2 Independents, he virtually slam-dunked that debate. It was mostly because Independents 'Grandma' Strayhorn and Kinky Friedman were terrible in the debates.
Perry is a political con-man, which may be redundant, and probably is the best current GOP candidate to face an incumbent President Obama. Even though Obama has the lowest rating since taking office, he most likely will be reelected. There are no real candidates that will come close to him in the 2012 election.
Perry's TIME interview will hit the stands shortly.
The Texas Tribune says that Perry thinks he has a shot at "...turning California red."
Remember when Perry visited California a while back. We were told it was to promote Texas as a state to do business in. More lies from Perry the scam artist.
The worse news is that if Perry runs for President and loses he will remain Governor of Texas. Texans just can't catch a break.
