I have always thought he would run, and here is a prediction for you. Soon, perhaps as soon as he announces, the media will hit the “has he waited too long” meme.
(Politico) — In one of the hardest indications yet that he’s a likely candidate, Rick Perry gave an interview to the politically important Des Moines Register last week, in which he said he is beginning to feel a “call” to run for president:
“I’m not ready to tell you that I’m ready to announce that I’m in,” Gov. Rick Perry told The Des Moines Register. “But I’m getting more and more comfortable every day that this is what I’ve been called to do. This is what America needs.”
Perry, likely scares Obama more than any other Republican candidate. So I would also predict an avalanche of attack pieces by the Left if perry gets in the race
