Buzz from the TV show – Perry’s Presidential aspirations get real

On last night’s edition of “Capital Tonight” on YNN, the conversation naturally turned to analysis on Governor Rick Perry’s odds of running for President. Here’s part of the conversation with YNN’s Paul Brown with Republican colleague Ted Delisi.

Leave me a comment on your thoughts…will Perry run? If so, will Republican voters nominate him? If not, why not?

This week’s episode also features two of my favorite Capitol people – Republican Senator Bob Deuell, and Democratic Senator Leticia Van de Putte. You can watch the entire special one-hour episode here, and the show will air on Austin TV on Sunday morning at 11 am on YNN.

    Will he run? Probably not. He is smart enough to know he won’t get a second chance for a top-of-the-ticket run and he won’t take the chance this time around.

    My opinion? What he is doing with that little Jethroesque statement is positioning himself for a possible vice presidential pick. If he gets on a failing ticket in the #2 slot he still has a chance to resurrect himself in time for 2016. Kind of like what Palin is doing now… except Goodhair is a whole lot smarter than Palin.

    What am I saying? A cantaloupe is smarter than Palin.

    Of course they would nominate him. He sucks up to any nutty religious group, has no respect for women or compassion for the less fortunate. He’s never met a special interest group he didn’t like and shows only contempt for our President and the Judiciary. He couldn’t care less if the children of Texas have food to eat, health insurance or the right to a public school education. He is narcissistic, elitist and morally bankrupt. He is a perfect candidate for the GOP.

    if this toad gets the republican nod for the presidency it will be as sure a sign as we’ll ever need that we have been very, very, very bad people. if it’s true that we get the government we deserve, we needn’t look past the current perry-driven legislature and be afraid. very afraid.

    I’m under the opinion that King Perry had the governor’s mansion burned to the ground so he could move out the his current, overpriced plantation and live in the lap of luxury while he drives Texas into the ground. The Republican party is a mess and if the Democratic party could all paddle in the same direction, maybe they could get something done. I don’t think he’ll run. He’s smart enough to know he’s dumb and wouldn’t stand a chance against the President.
