Skip to comments.Perry to head to South Carolina
Posted on 01/04/2012 8:33:37 AM PST by GoCards
Just heard from a tweet, someone elses tweet of course.
Just heard from MSNBC too??? hmmm
“And the next leg of the marathon is the Palmetto State...Here we come South Carolina!!! http://t.co/ayZTVJAa"
thank you sir!!!
Bill Hemmer just mentioned this on Brian Kilmeade’s radio show.
Good. I’d like to see perry stay through SC. Santorum and Gingrich are both viable alternatives, but both have real negatives, too. Not sure how santorum will play outside Iowa. Not convinced i want to place our future in the hands of Newt quite yet Perry is the most effective executive in the bunch. If he can show more improvement in campaigning, I am still open to him. With Bachmann stepping out, we still have room for 2-3 alternatives to Mitt. After SC the conservatives need to coalesce around the winner of the not Romney race and back them in Florida to take the lead.
Yes, Governor Perry tweeted it himself. I follow him on Twitter.
Yes! I have hope again. But is this confirmed?
Wow a punch in the jimmies to Santorum...
IF you'd rather NOT be pinged FReepmail me.
IF you'd like to be added FReepmail me. Thanks.
Your points are good
i agree, let perry stay in
now that the media will be focused on Santorum maybe voters will pay attention to what Perry has to say, well even Gingrich.
I love how my leftist friends keep saying Romney will be the nominee
I am not ready to settle on one choice yet and i sure don’t want the media to do it for me
Tell this to the FReepers on the live thread last night who insisted “he’s done”.
I respect Perry for having taken time and respected his backers and family enough to pray and ask their advice before committing to go forward.
He must have some encouraging internal data.
Post #3 is a Tweet from Rick Perry himself. Tweeted by Governor Perry only 18 minutes ago.
Seeing confirms different places: MSNBC, Bill Hemmer on Fox, retweet by Michelle Malkin, etc.
Unless someone hacked the Gov’s Twitter acct., it looks pretty good.
Just heard on the local radio.
“South Carolina here we come!”
Perry is a southern governor campaigning in the south
Mechanically, he has the executive qualities to impress in townhall type groups. Can he do it and overcome his dismal debate cameos? Imagine him throwing together with Santorum to capture the social issues voters and the rust belt.
Great! Another opportunity come in last!
Arlette Saenz (ABC digital reporter following Perry) just retweeted Perry...
Methinks this is why Bachmann stayed in Iowa: Romney owes her his win. If Perry costs Santorum a winner-take-all Florida, it will have the same effect. Search: "Fred Thompson" + "fan dance"
I don’t know what the reason, but I’m very happy about it. Go Rick Perry!
Or in other words, successfully throwing a Hail Mary pass from the parking lot...
Good. Off to Bible study. Will check in when I get back.
This may be of interest to you.
Outstanding! The day just got considerably brighter.
If this is true, it is awesome! I will be constantly praying for God to bless Rick Perry - I truly believe that he is the only acceptable candidate that has the capability to beat Romney.
Godspeed to you Rick Perry!
Anita must have forced him to continue. She really wants this, much more than Perry ever did.
It’s heartless really, poor fellow.
Mitt can’t win...SC and FL will finish him..Paul stays until the end, but his numbers will drop, and Perry will do very well against Newt and the other Rick
Beck just mentioned this on his radio show...
Oh sure, like he kicked butt last night?
A stupid vanity move that will give Romney more breathing room.
I hope Perry stays in... at least a bit longer.
He seems to have a knack for pissing off Mittens :-)
He is a VERY fine man, I know u support him strongly.. I understand your loyalty.
Politics can be very painful at times, it will turn mega-painful if MittWitt get the nom :-(
I can support Perry, Santorum or Newt at this point without holding my nose.
Good news to me! :)
The poor South Carolinian voters will now have to subjected to more Perry Cialis ads.
More like a hand shake with Romney.
The RINO sissy slap-fight debates between Romney and Perry continue. These two drama queens were made for each other.
You got a problem with Perry kicking the punks butt? I don’t - the three of them should kick the s*^! out of him.
There is a debate Saturday night. He needs to go or it will look like he’s not up to it. That would hurt him.

It’s all good. Perry will distract Willeird and make him look silly and petty. Meanwhile Santorum and Newt can make their points unhindered.
Good for him. If you are not going to get the nomination, let a conservative state tell you that, not a moderate state.
I’m glad Perry is going to hang in there. It’s way too soon for him to bail. Let’s see what shakes out over the next month or so.
Well this will make Mitt Romney’s day. Let’s keep dividing up our votes, smart move Rick. He needs to get over himself. I would vote for him in a general election, but he will never get there, but Romney’s chance just went way up.
I agree stay in.
Rush just said that someone contacted his campaign and this is not confirmed.
He’s headed to SC? I thought he was headed home to “assess”, is he lost or did he tweet by mistake? Sounds like another ‘oops’.
