“I will work every day to make Washington, D.C. as inconsequential in your lives as I can”

So says Rick Perry in his explanation of why he’s running. Isn’t this refreshing after three years of hope and change and blame America:

What I learned in my 20’s traveling the globe as an Air Force pilot, our current president has yet to acknowledge in his 50’s – that we are the most exceptional nation on the face of the earth.

As Americans, we believe freedom is a gift from God, and government’s prime function is to defend it.  We don’t see the role of government as a nanny state, and we recognize there is no government money that wasn’t once earned through the sweat and toil of private citizens.

Read the rest. I’m on cloud nine. Nikki Haley calls his timing “brilliant” after Huck and others have criticised Perry’s “dis” of Iowa. I’m inclined to agree. Allahpundit has more, including the video and a worthy tweet.

Related: Pundette, NARAL “very worried” about a Perry candidacy. All the more reason to support him enthusiastically, no? Pundette contrasts Perry’s record with Obama’s (Mr. “I Wouldn’t Punish My Daughter With a Baby”).

Weasel Zippers, Rick Perry Calls Global Warming A “Phony Mess.” Heh. This is just too much fun, y’all.

And finally, Perry: It’s time to admit Social Security is a Ponzi scheme

  3. Well, this is promising. Let’s see. I’m still not committing to anyone yet.

    • LOL, Manny, you know in your heart of NY hearts, you’re a Romney man. And that’s ok. It takes all kinds to make the world go round.

  4. I am really excited. I have a liberal friend from Texas that hates him and linked an article on HuffPo sharing his college transcripts at A&M. His grades were not good. Also, he has never held a private sector job. I need to research him more, so I’m just bringing up some negative things that will no doubt be brought up… but I am still cautiously optimistic. 🙂

    • At least we’ve seen his grades! As though the wizards of smart currently in charge are doing a fine job. Reminds me of the Felonious Munk video going round. Have you seen it? On debt? I’m torn about putting it up. Wickedly funny and I’m crying laughing. But wicked terrible language. Google it.

  5. YAY!!! I feel like a big weight has just fallen away – now we can look forward to the election! 🙂

  6. “That’s why, with faith in God, the support of my family, and an unwavering belief in the goodness of America, I am a candidate for President of the United States.”

    That’s what we need.
