It Appears Even Perry's People Believe His Whole Campaign Has Been An "Oops" Moment

Schutze said it the other day: Gov. Rick Perry's probably just a few days away from crawling back to Austin with his tail tucked between Anita's legs. We'll know more tonight at 7, when the Des Moines Register releases its all-important Iowa Poll, and Happy New Year to you too. But this morning, several Friends of Unfair Park send word: Already some of Perry's own people are prepping the parachutes just in case this thing goes further south and God decides He really tapped the wrong haircut on the shoulder.

Politico chatted up Perry staffers, and they've got all their reasons at the ready: It's Dave Carney's fault for running a presidential campaign like a governor's race. Or: His positions did him in, like that whole thing about offering in-state tuition for illegal immigrants. Or: Maybe he just opened his mouth. Maybe that was all it took. Or: All of the above.
"There has never been a more ineptly orchestrated, just unbelievably subpar campaign for president of the United States than this one," said a senior Perry adviser.
Rick Perry, Herman Cain thanks you. Free pizza for life.

We all knew Perry was just as dumb as Bush. The difference is Perry didn't have the name, reputation, or support of Bush Sr. and his network of people that Bush Jr. could tap into.

this presidential campaign should weaken him enough to be brought down in a state general.

Nah, people would have to have memories that go beyond a five minute span for that to work out. Come next election (should he run), they'll have no recollection of this failure.

I just wish Texas could get rid of Perry.  I have wished this for YEARS!!!!!  My God this man is an embarrassment and the only reason he ever got his Governorship was because Bush became President.  Sheesh.  Can we not get rid of him already?  **starts wailing in pain**

I think it is more fundamental than if it was the new guy's fault or the loyalist's fault -- I think it is none of their faults.  I have run a bunch of campaigns and I will tell you that all you can do is put frosting on the cake.  In Perry's case, there is no cake there.

I believe you may be mistaken--there IS a cake there.  That cake was recently ejected from the rear end of a Texas  Bull.

And that pretty much sums up Rick Perry:  just a load of Texas Bull.
