  •  Perry was drafted by Texas evangelicals (1+ / 0-)

    According to Fort Worth Star-Telegram columnist Bud Kennedy this morning,

    He was drafted to run by some pastors and televangelists who feared that evangelical-friendly Newt Gingrich was too distracted.  ...  Perry said the right things, but he was talking in bumper stickers. He never convinced voters he could beat [President Barack] Obama.
    But I still think that it was the unplanned late entry into the national race that did Perry in. It simply led to too many bloopers no professional politician would have committed.
