Bush Clone selling three things: Giuliani, Texas and himself

Texas Topics

A Texas woman was raped. The Feds do nothing. Forced into unconsionable contracts that allow rape and other crimes against employees. But Mr. GoodHair the Bush Clone is out in the Confederacy pimping and prostituting for a New York Yankee Crossdresser. When is GoodHair going to enforce and execute the laws of Texas against a corporation and MEN for multiple crimes against this woman?

Governor Perry is Missing in Action, not doing his job that we are paying him to do, while a rape victim is victimized over and over by the corporation and the Feds. I guess this is the RepubliCON, CONpassionate, CONservative, Khristian ethics, family values, and morality.

Texan generating interest - but not always for candidate


CHARLESTON, S.C. – Deep in the cradle of the old South this week, presidential contender Rudy Giuliani unleashed his strong persuader – Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

Speaking to a group of civic leaders, Mr. Perry touted the qualifications of the "New York Yankee," lectured about the importance of conservative values and extolled the glory of the Lone Star State.

"I'd rather be in Texas today, but I'm here because I believe in this guy," Mr. Perry said. "I want someone who has steel in their backbone."

Wherever he is, Mr. Perry sells the state. And he's trying to give Mr. Giuliani street credibility among social conservatives and evangelicals who are skeptical of the former New York mayor's stance on gay unions and abortion rights, an important role just as Mr. Giuliani slides from the top of national polls and tries to gain ground in early voting states.

But the governor might have been most effective at selling himself. Iowans and South Carolinians may not warm to Mr. Giuliani, but if Mr. Perry someday launches a national campaign of his own, they'll remember when the Texas governor with the custom boots and perfect hair rode into town.

"I'm still very much undecided about the presidential race," said Eleni Roumel, a 30-something Charleston lawyer. "But Perry was very interesting. I like him."

Mr. Perry shrugs off the notion that he's laying the groundwork for his own political future. And he defends Mr. Giuliani's strategy to win the GOP primary – survive the early contests and cash in with delegates from bigger states, like New York, California and Texas.

"This is a national election, and Rudy finds himself well situated," Mr. Perry said. "I've played in a lot of games where you were behind in the first quarter. Early states are early states. The election will be won on who has the most delegates. I expect that to be Rudy Giuliani."

Mr. Giuliani's campaign welcomes the help, especially in states where they have done everything but throw in the towel.

"Perry has had a great impact," said Giuliani spokesman Elliott Bundy. "It helps to have a voice of support from all sides of the spectrum."

Mr. Perry is one of several big-name Texans supporting Mr. Giuliani, who uses Dallas as a staging area outside of his northern base. Developer Harlan Crow, Rangers owner Tom Hicks and other Dallas business leaders back the former mayor.

Still, it was mildly surprising when Mr. Perry, a champion for the state's grass-roots social conservatives, chose to support a social moderate and the man he calls a "New York Yankee."

Law boardrooms

And it's unclear how his pitch might help Mr. Giuliani reverse his slide in South Carolina, though. His speeches were given to small groups in the boardrooms of law offices, most of them already Giuliani supporters, instead of larger settings.

Mr. Perry acknowledged that Mr. Giuliani wasn't the typical southern candidate but said he was the best chance Republicans had to win the White House.

"What is a guy from Texas doing in South Carolina endorsing a guy from New York for the presidency of the Unites States?" he asked a group in Columbia. "This is going to be a close election across the board. Rudy is our best chance to beat Hillary Clinton."

He also praised Mr. Giuliani's stances on fighting terrorism, cutting taxes and nominating judges. And he continued his tacit criticism of President Bush by touting Mr. Giuliani's ability to balance the books. During a recent stop in Iowa, Mr. Perry said Mr. Bush had never been a fiscal conservative.

"We need a disciplined fiscal conservative as president of the United States to stand there and say, 'We're not going to spend those funds,' " he said.

Craig Wells, a 38-year-old developer from Columbia, pressed Mr. Perry on Mr. Giuliani's weaknesses, asking the governor to describe the candidate's challenges so his supporters could meet them head on.

Mr. Perry, though, didn't mention Mr. Giuliani's standing with social conservatives or his poll position in the early primary states.

Instead, he compared Mr. Giuliani's roots in Brooklyn to his own upbringing in Paint Creek, Texas, saying it's made both of them respectful and thoughtful.

"It's a powerful antidote as to how he will respond to the world around him," Mr. Perry said.

Mr. Wells accepted the answer.

"I don't agree with all his positions," he said afterward. "But he's the strongest candidate to fill the role."

With a wink, Mr. Perry also said that supporters should be passionate about the balding Mr. Giuliani and not judge a candidate by his hair, a thinly veiled reference to his own locks.

Despite the small crowds, Mr. Perry said, traveling to South Carolina for Mr. Giuliani was worth it.

"It's like planting wheat," he said. "You get out and spread the seeds. Not all of them are going to germinate."

National curiosity

Part of Mr. Giuliani's predicament with Mr. Perry is that the Texas governor has his own appeal. Texas is a national curiosity – and a model for what many social conservatives seek to accomplish in politics.

At both stops in South Carolina, Mr. Perry described the Republican sweep of 2002, which included the GOP's taking the Texas House for the first time in 130 years. One audience member in Columbia could only respond: "Wow."

From tightening the borders to expanding the economy, he described Texas as a conservative utopia.

"I didn't come here to do a chamber of commerce speech on the state of Texas," he relented. "I've got to quit. I'm here to talk about Rudy, not Texas."

In Charleston, former South Carolina congressman Arthur Ravenel said Mr. Perry was a hit – and it would help Mr. Giuliani.

"Texas Republicans have the same values as South Carolina Republicans," he said. "We were delighted to have him here."

The governor's own political future is undetermined. He has not ruled out a run for a third full gubernatorial term in 2010, though few expect him to go that route. He recently became head of the Republican Governors Association, raising his national profile. And the visits he's making now to early primary states would serve him well if he decided on a White House run of his own in 2012.

In the meantime, many of those he addressed this week wondered about Mr. Perry's aspirations and asked if he would accept the call to run for vice president.

He quickly said he would not, even if asked by Mr. Giuliani.

"I've got a great job, just ask George Bush," he said. "Being the governor of a major state like Texas is better than being vice president."

Others were not so sure.

Scott M. Malyerck, South Carolina's deputy treasurer, said Mr. Perry's delivery reminded him of Mr. Bush.

"He was very George Bush-like," Mr. Malyerck said, thrusting his arms to illustrate the point. "But he talks about the core issues that our party needs to get back to. We've kind of lost our way. He's trying to lead us back. We don't want George Bush the third. We want someone a little different."

(When Texas needs Guber GoodHair to do his JOB that he's being paid to do, he's off playing footsies with a NY Yankee Crossdresser. Maybe a recall election would make a believer out of him?)
