Rick Perry, the longest serving governor in Texas history is being asked by political experts within the Republican Party not shy of telling the Texas Governor to “get out” stop, quit, pull out of the presidential race before his political career is damaged according to Capitol Hill Blue.
Since joining the Republican candidate presidential field, doubts about Perry’s political suave have hounded him since he was first elected as a state legislator nearly 30 years ago. In Texas, Perry was considered the right guy in the right place at the right time. That was then, this is now.
Now with his enemies pushing the truth front and center from failure to maintain illegal immigrants from crossing federal borders within the state, receiving pay from a major drug supplier injecting teenage girls with a substance and hosted hunting parties with fellow lawmakers, friends and supporters at a West Texas hunting camp leased by him and his family titled “Niggerhead Ranch,” maintaining the name of his hunting camp for many years, even while he held office as a member of his state’s legislature, and then as Governor of Texas.
Once at the top troubled by increased scrutiny and poor debate performances, Perry “cracked on the campaign trail” earlier this year and last month which has led in his fall from frontrunner to bottom of pack. Republican activist Susan Hildebrand stated “Mr. Perry just wasn’t ready for prime time.” As the debates moved forward it showed.
Political specialistssay Perry’srun for president is broken and should quit if he wants to salvage what’s left of his political career in Texas by withdrawing now before he hits rock bottom joining the ranks of Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul, Jon Huntsman, Rick Santorum whom quitthe presidential race and Sarah Palin who never officially entered into the Republican field. Now Perry can be considered a Presidential pretender.
Perry started his Presidential run like a fired rocket overtaking the competition then leading as the front runner by double digitssoaring over career Republican candidate Mitt Romney. Since then and a few debates later, Perry have shown the media, and America that he is not the right candidate as his downward spiral continues as Mitt Romney recapturedthe lead in the latest polls only finding himself in second place to the newest political Republican sensation Herman Cain, the Godfather of Pizza.
Perry’s collapsestarted when he scrappedwith Mitt Romney over repeated quotes out of each other’s books instead of focusing on his winning record as governor of Texas. Perry has a long history serving as governor for the past 11 years. Under Perry, Texas experienced job growth during his current tenure as a competitive state. Perry looked like the ideal candidate for Republicans to push against President Obama.
Instead Perry engage with Romney never concentrating on his states strength defining himself in a positive manner, choosing to call Social Security a “Ponzi scheme” continued being gloated into attacking Romney by Romney. That strategy worked because Perry reacted to the barbs rather than his platform. This would have given him a defining moment against Romney and President Obama over Jobs and the economy and Americans would have jumped on board as the Republican Party base did.
If Perry wants to reclaim the momentum, he needs to make jobs and the economy the main topic of the debate, making the case for his leadership on the national scale to promote “Restoring America” acting like a front runner. Voters will make their decision on the policies and plans for the future, not “catch “quotes and a Texas hunting camp leased by him and his family titled after a racial slur. If Perry fails to restore his campaign he will have no one to blame but himself.
Now it is too late. Perry is on the brink of disaster. Instead of being a frontrunner, Perry seems intent on making Mitt Romney the central subject of the race.
Rick Perry has shown his true Texas colors and now it is time for him to renounce the Presidential Race, and head back to his real Texas roots and rethink the naming of the hunting ranch. Something that should of occurred more than twenty five years ago.
