Exclusive: Rick Perry's October Trip to Israel Sign of Another Whitehouse Bid
The Washington Times ^ | July 11, 2013 | The Washington Times

Posted on 07/12/2013 10:33:53 PM PDT by DRey

Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Thursday that he will visit Israel in October, a move that signals to the political world that he is seriously considering making another presidential run in 2016.

“We will be going to Israel to bring together Arabs, Christian and Jews in an educational forum,” Mr. Perry told The Washington Times in an interview just three days after he announced he would not seek an unprecedented fourth term as Texas governor.

Many analysts interpreted that decision as evidence that he is setting the table for a White House campaign. Asked what would induce him to announce a run, he told The Times that he has “plenty of time to make that decision.”

Well duh. Longest-serving governor in American history; successful; Texas; tired of being governor; good looking; all that jazz...of course he's running again. Just hope he's off the back-surgery narcotics by the time of the debates.

He did a great job as the leader and steward in Texas -- jobs, jobs, jobs. He'll make a fantastic anti-Obama, or die trying.

I’m sure he’s not perfect, so 7 million conservatives will simply stay home.

Trips to kiss the ring in Israel are a pretty good sign his priorities are confused. Pass.

I wish he would have won the last time around. Total opposite of what we have now. Would like to see a POTUS who would not want to insist the Jews give up any their land.

He is a genuine conservative IMO. I didn't stay home last time but I did not vote for either liberal.
If he runs he has my support..

When it comes to defending a man who can't remember the 3rd item on a list of 3, you may be right.

I did a quick search and discovered this. I found it to be both informative and interesting. Thanks for pointing out the inaccuracy.

I wonder when SB2 will get to his desk so he can sign it into law? The Pro-Aborts in TX are acting like rabid hyenas.

When Rand Paul made snarky remarks about Perry the other day, I knew he figured Perry was going to run. I would vote for Perry in a heartbeat.

Trips to kiss the ring in Israel

Actually, he's been to Israel before, specifically for Texas, and developed many close relationships. He is a student of their border control tactics and has implemented many of their plans in Texas. But if you consider that kissing a ring, then by all means, pass. No one likes a kiss-up.

I know. When they pulled that last stunt I was praying he would call the special session and slam it in their faces. He did, and it WILL be taken care of, regardless of their mud and @hit and @iss and tampon slinging. Animals, the lot of them.

If you think La Raza Rick could have defeated Obama you really are clueless. Romney sucked but he did at least win one debate. La Raza Rick couldn’t control his mouth in the debates long enough to stop himself from attacking the very people whose votes he hoped to get. Oh but, that’s right; you believe La Raza Rick’s abysmal debate performances were because he was taking medication. lol!

For some reason you wish this were true; however, the bill is actually aimed at medical STANDARDS in the state. It is likely to stand the judicial test. Sorry. Dem Underground is next door. Have a nice time tossing your tampons.

I doubt we will find a serious Republican Presidential candidate that is not pro-illegal.

There is just too much campaign cash out there from special interest that a candidate is going to need to be competitive.

The only way we can beat the amnesty movement is with our own anti-amnesty movement that strikes fear in to the hearts of our congressmen.

Blah, blah, blah. Yep. Another low-information voter here. Fences don't work on the massive border we have in Texas. Technology, like Israel has, however, just might. That's why Perry has visited with Israel's border folks to learn what works for them, and fought tooth and nail to get the same thing done in Texas. But you go on and vote your ignorance. That's why we have a President Obama post Osama bin Laden.

Derrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

You shouldn't make much moronic assumptions. I never said you didn't know and I surely didn't post that so as to image to inform you. I posted it to support my comment that he is La Raza Rick, and he is.

Now who is uninformed?

That would be you for foolishly stating the he is not La Raza Rick. It could also be you because you apparently think nothing of La Raza Rick giving that racist organization his time. He and Obama have that in common. You should be proud.

No. Just hopeful. He will be president, though, and certainly would have been better for the country than Obama, or Romney. As I recall, it took Reagan three runs to get it right, but you might want to Wikipedia me to make sure. ; )

I would sooner stay home

That attitude gave us BHO, second term.

Conservatives stayed at home rather than vote for Romney.

Romney was in last place as far as I was concerned in the primaries but I took my anti-nausia medication and went out and campaigned for the RINO.

Then on election day I voted for him because I knew this country may not survive another 4 years of BHO and the Democrats.

With a better conservative turn out we might have take the Senate and the Presidency.

We conservatives are not going to win back this country from the top. We have to pull the country to the Right at the state and local level. We have to choose young conservative candidates at the local level that will move up in the party. Then we have to fight hard to keep them conservative as the move up.

It has been more than 100 years since Progressivism stated destroying this country. Don’t expect to reverse that process in a few years. We are not going to win back our country by staying home when the party chooses a lip wristed candidate.

You might also remember that the Republican Party is not historically a conservative party. Teddy Roosevelt the first Progressive president was a Republican (and TR’s desire to win back the WH split the Republican vote and gave us the evil that was Wilson). Ronaldus Magnus was the first Conservative Republican President since Coolidge.

We conservatives are the invasive species in the Republican party. We will have to work hard to change the party’s nature. If we want the party to survive while we reform it we have to kiss a few toads until we find our prince.
