I can see why you’re proud of Gov. Perry. I live in Illinois, and well.. enough said.
I’ve always seen him a a good man, a good Governor, and a good Conservative. We could do far worse than having him as president, even though he isn’t my #1 choice. But it’s a job interview and the process can seem personal especially when folks are jabbing over the algore interweb rather than how we’d discuss the same thing over a cup of coffee or a beer.
If I had to say one thing that Perry could have done better at in his campaign, it’s the way he’s rolled out ideas as if they’re the “Idea of the Week”, or like he was making it up as he went along. A lot of this process is packaging and marketing, and we all know the best product sometimes gets beat by the one that has created the best perception.
Just a long way of saying many of us are thankful today and every day that we have leaders like Rick Perry, regardless of where they serve.
