Texas Governor Rick Perry's advisers are sizing up Iowa. The AP reported:
Perry's chief consultant Dave Carney acknowledged that he was asking questions about the political landscape, the caucus process and rules for the August Republican straw poll in Iowa.
Perry himself plans to start calling key Iowa Republicans after the Texas Legislature concludes its special session at the end of June, Carney said.
High drama is on the way if the Great Texas Ex-Perryment goes national. As for Perry's hated Washington, Rick loves 1001 Pennsylvania Avenue. Watch the money backing Perry. I wouldn't be surprised if it's his fellow Bilderbergers, banksters and private equity underwriters (PEU's). They're hard to see, but carry a distinct odor at close range.
Update 6-21-11: I left off a "P" in the title. It could've easily included "private." I don't know how Chron left out Bilderberg in Rick Perry's secret travels. Will Rove Republican Robert Duncan enable Perry to keep his track's covered? Funny that a school bill could contribute to lack of education.
Update 6-23-11: Perry's in for a Presidential run says WSJ. That ensures the burial of Perry's Vought corporafornication.
Update 6-30-11: Rick Perry initiated The Response, a day of prayer and fasting at Reliant Stadium in Houston. The Event Coordinator is an ex-Perry staffer and current consultant to the Governor. His role includes "working with events." Some Christians are disturbed by the event. I assume Reliant Stadium food vendors are also concerned by the day of fasting. I envision a huge crowd chanting, "Run, Rick, Run."
Update 7-18-11: Perry said he would decide in two or three weeks, i.e. between August 1 and 8. "But I'm getting more and more comfortable every day that this is what I've been called to do. This is what America needs," The Response on August 6, a "calling," all in the same time frame? Orchestration at its best.
Update 8-11-11: Perry's in the race and will make his official announcement Saturday. Politicians no longer look like people, but like caricatures. Run, Rickly Pear, run... Shake off those George W. Bush leg braces.
