New Perry ad: “Misleading.”
I can tell you at least one key difference between this latest ad by Governor Rick Perry and the latest one from former Governor Mitt Romney… …Team Perry will probably not have to fall all over itself later today to pull the ad from the Internet. Which was something that Team Romney had to do yesterday with their ad. For those without video, the Perry | Read More »
Little did we know how well Herman Cain was doing last week
Before the cold that really took me down since Friday (to explain my silence since), we checked in on the pre-debate polling for Herman Cain’s first debate as a major contender. It turns out that Cain’s momentum had taken him even further ahead of the Tuesday debate, though post-debate polling suggests he took at hit in the national audience.

The Jeremiah Wrighting of Robert Jeffress
Robert Jeffresss does not have a lick of political sense. You do not, in this day and age, to a gaggle of reporters after introducing a Presidential candidate to a crowd, say that the candidate’s opponent belongs to “a cult.” You just don’t. It doesn’t matter what you believe. Robert Jeffress lacks political skills. But he is not a politician. Robert Jeffress is a pastor | Read More »
Rick Perry’s post-Dartmouth Remarks, Part II.
And here’s part II: the Q&A from last night’s (10/11/2011) post-debate remarks by Texas Governor Rick Perry. Again, this was done by RedState’s Aaron Gardner, not myself. You can see the first part here. Moe Lane (crosspost)
Rick Perry’s post-Dartmouth remarks, Part I.
Our own Aaron Gardner was on hand to record Governor Rick Perry‘s remarks after the debate last night. I’ll be putting up the video in two parts: this part consists of the formal remarks that Governor Perry made, and the second will be from the question-and-answer period. Not to be, ah, pawkish about this or anything: but as you can see, the difference between Perry’s | Read More »
The Perry Performance
Perhaps it is that Perry has set the bar so low. In going back through the comments from my post last night on the debate, there are a large number of people — not all Perry acolytes — who think he had a solid debate performance. I didn’t even think he punched his card and showed up until the second half. What got me thinking | Read More »
Time to Reconsider the Conversations With Candidates
In light of that tragedy of a debate last night, I want to reiterate this. We’re open to all of the candidates who participated last night doing this: Bachmann, Cain, Gingrich, Huntsman, Paul, Perry, Romney, and Santorum. You’ll get a better shot at answering better questions in a one on one format. ———————————————– Dear Candidates: This letter is written on behalf of Brent Bozell with | Read More »
Checking the national polling ahead of the debate
With a new debate coming, now’s a great time to check the latest national polling. Of course, individual states matter, but this early the national polling is critical for gauging how well the candidates will be able to stay in the race. To summarize, we’ve seen no changes since Herman Cain surged just ahead of Rick Perry. Mitt Romney still leads.
New NBC poll suggests polling caucuses is hard
I’m not too surprised when I see Herman Cain doing better than Rick Perry in recent polling, but I was surprised to see Ron Paul beating Rick Perry in NBC’s new poll of Iowa. So, I started getting ready to post… and found out there’s more than meets the eye here. Caucuses are apparently hard to poll.

Romney’s Own Words
The Perry campaign has a new web ad out. No word on whether it will be used as a television ad, but we can get a sense of the campaign’s punches from this. Mitt Romney’s campaign says Perry is desperate. Given Perry’s polling lately, that could be an angle — though $15 million on hand will help him get back up in the polls. The | Read More »
You Perry Fans Really Want to Help Him? Get Him Better Videos
Today we’ve got a new video from the Rick Perry campaign folks. It hits Mitt Romney pretty hard for his environmental record. The message is sound. But the delivery… well… just watch it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nUHaMSxLYc8& I think the Perry campaign was right to snatch up Pawlenty’s video genius for their earlier video. I hope we see more soon from him. Perry’s gubernatorial campaign had good videos | Read More »

This Primary Season Is All About Not Romney
Every week brings another controversy or another debate – and another Republican POTUS front-runner. And once again, the GOP base continues its eternal (and fruitless) search for the Perfect Conservative. Each time a candidate peaks, they stick their foot in their mouth or some issue about their past pops up and they drop in the polls in favor of the next flavor of the month. | Read More »
Analyzing the top three as two more polls boost Cain
Two more polls are out that absolutely confirm Cain is a serious force in the Republican Presidential race right now. Quinnipiac and CBS leave no more doubt, as the last four polls have all put Herman Cain at 17%, right up alongside Rick Perry and Mitt Romney. I’m going to try to break down these numbers get a good snapshot of this Cain moment.
