Rick Perry Agrees to ‘Conversation’ on Fracking in Texas

December 19, 2011

0 Comments

Its a pretty safe bet from a Texan’s point of view that fracking has a promising future in our state. The practice has, as Governor Perry states, “been used for years” in Texas. Its also clear judging by recent news stories and a controversial study by the EPA that the federal government has every intention […]

Head Figure Head: The Search for the Hidden Life of Rick Perry is a book released today by Glen Maxey a former openly gay Texas Legislator from Austin who served with Rick Perry in the Texas House. I first met Glen when he was a state Rep. and my father’s desk mate (also a state […]

Herman Cain: Teflon Pizza Don or Mr. Magoo of GOP

November 1, 2011

0 Comments

I have been wanting to move past “politics of the day” to discuss what I think are more relevant issues in the bigger picture but I continue to be fascinated by Herman Cain and what his story means to the 2012 race. The more media declares his candidacy over the better he does with the […]

Is Herman Cain’s loss Rick Perry’s gain?

October 31, 2011

UPDATE 11/3/2011 4pm: A new Rasmussen poll taken after the leak of sexual allegations shows Herman Cain actually taking the lead over Romney. Rick Perry doubles his numbers to 8% while Bachmann, Huntsman and Santorum bottom out. It appears Perry drew his support from the later candidates and Cain seems to be holding his own. Its […]

Stars and Bars and Battle-scars

October 30, 2011

It has already been widely reported, but Rick Perry has come out against the Confederate battle flag being placed on Texas license plates stating, “We don’t need to be opening up old wounds.” This is a departure from an earlier statement released by his staff that indicated, “The governor believes this is a decision for […]

Rush Limbaugh said it first.

October 19, 2011

I could not help but comment on the above headline. It was displayed prominently by Drudge post-debate. What’s interesting is earlier in the day on his radio program Rush Limbaugh  said, “So their objective at CNN is going to be to make every one of these people look like an absolute wacko nutcase fruitcake.” So Anderson Cooper will […]

GOP candidates on Occupy Wall Street

The GOP field on Occupy Wall Street: Mitt Romney -“I think it’s dangerous, this class warfare,” Rick Perry – 1.) “We understand the frustration with the Obama economy, but the protests don’t make sense or help create jobs.” 2.) “You know Liberals are now pointing the finger of blame at successful employers under the guise of […]

Anita Perry: Window to Camp Perry?

October 14, 2011

0 Comments

Anita Perry could give strong insight into the unpreparedness of Rick Perry’s Presidential campaign.  Recently she spoke in South Carolina in an emotional monologue about the relationship with her husband, their life in small town Texas and answering God’s call to run for President. She expressed her dismay of the attacks by the media and his GOP […]

Herman Cain: Cracking the Black Walnut

October 14, 2011

0 Comments

The takeaway:  Voters are expressing what they want in a candidate more than their actual support for Herman Cain or his 9-9-9 plan. Talk to a political hack and he is likely to tell you Herman Cain is not a ‘serious’ candidate. Poll Republican primary voters and you get a different answer. Pundits and even the other candidates […]

Rick Perry …Not in Texas Anymore

October 13, 2011

0 Comments

If Rick Perry wants to separate himself from the field and make this a two-man race, his window is closing. He brilliantly crafted the timing of his entry to maximize his own buzz against the “weak” front-runner status of Romney but since stumbling out of the blocks his campaign has been in free fall. The […]

Mitt Romney and the 7 Dwarves?

October 12, 2011

0 Comments

I Watched the GOP primary debate in awe that the Republican Party has yet to find atruly competitive conservative candidate to challenge Mitt Romney.  It was like watching an episode of surviver for most of the candidates as they desperately tried to play up their support and stand out from an overly crowded field. The debates may have […]

Perry v. Romney: The State of Abortion

October 10, 2011

0 Comments

The Values Voters Summit was held this weekend in the city politicians love to hate, Washington, D.C.. The winner was a famous conservative politician from Texas with the initials RP who also happens to- not be Rick Perry. So the narrative remains, a weak front runner in Mitt Romney vs. the “conservative alternative”.  Rick Perry […]

Rick Perry jabs Occupy Wall Street at Value Voters Summit

October 8, 2011

3 Comments

He may not have addressed it directly but Rick Perry referred to the Occupy Wall Street movement in his latest address to the Value Voters Summit. You know Liberals are now pointing the finger of blame at successful employers under the guise of fairness, but when they utter phrases like “fair share” you just know, heh, they’re […]

Niggerhead-gate: Heritage not Hate?

October 5, 2011

0 Comments

I still believe this “#Niggerheadgate” will blow over before the next debate. This week has already seen more than its fair share of racial politics and strangely intertwined narratives. In a nut shell it goes something like – Rick Perry gets in trouble over a racial slur on his ranch, then fires back at Herman Cain for […]

“Niggerhead”: A good Whitewashing?

October 3, 2011

1 Comment

The Washington Post published a story suggesting that Governor Perry took little issue with an offensive slur etched into a stone near the entrance of his hunting camp. The now infamous “Niggerhead” has been painted over but the story has raised eyebrows including those of black conservative and GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain. Cain himself is barely […]
