Rick Perry Thinking Of Running For President In 2012—A View From Texas

Texas Governor Rick Perry says he will consider running for President.

If Americans want another Texas Governor as President, one who to the right of even George W. Bush, that is a choice people are free to make.

While I take nothing for granted, my guess is that this is not what the nation wants.

Here is a viewpoint sympathetic to Mr. Perry’s candidacy from the Fox News digital politics editor.

I make no secret that I’m to the left of most voters. Independents and people in the center can read the link above and figure out what they think of Governor Perry for themselves.

Libertarian voters can decide what they think of a soon-to-be law that Governor Perry has championed that forces women seeking a legal abortion to get a sonogram that they may well not want.  

If the state can force one type of unwanted medical procedure on free citizens, than why can’t it force any type of unwanted medical procedure on free citizens?

Not even Texas Republicans are on-board with the idea of Mr. Perry running for the White House.  Governor Perry stands at 4% in a poll of Texas Republican Presidential preferences.

Whoever the Republican nominee is in 2012, one thing will be certain. He or she will be from the far-right of the political spectrum.

Folks can decide what they want at the ballot box in 2012.
