The Weekly Standard calls Rick the most successful governor in America...

Praise for Rick from Fred Barnes (link). Excerpt follows...

The governor whose state has fared the best over the past decade is Rick Perry of Texas, 60, elected to a third term on November 2. The era of Texas as America’s most prosperous and influential state has begun, social critic Joel Kotkin wrote recently, replacing the era of California. It happened on Perry’s watch.
One thing Ryan, Jindal, Rubio, Christie, and Perry have in common is they’re not running for president. I asked Jindal, who’s already announced for reelection as governor of Louisiana in 2011, if he has any intention of seeking the Republican presidential nomination in 2012. He gave a one word answer: “No.”

Barnes seems to take Rick at his unequivocal word that he is not running in 2012...

  1. RickvsKay, we do know that Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour (R) is all but certainly going to seek the GOP nomination for President in 2 years, due to his success as the chairman of the Republican Governors Association this year, so he's already in the race as we speak.


Hey now, campaign characters. Be nice. I know a lot of you on both sides, so I don't want any overly foul language, personal attacks on anyone other than the candidates themselves, or other party fouls. I will moderate the heck out of you if you start breaking the bounds of civility.
