Why Perry Can Beat Obama and Romney Can’t

Most of the GOP establishment is uncomfortable with Rick Perry. Few have openly attacked the Texas governor, as Karl Rove did when Perry criticized Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. However, the grumblings of former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan​, a number of former Bush aides, and sundry other Republican luminaries have made it clear that they would prefer to see Mitt Romney​ as the GOP standard-bearer in 2012. Even inveterate RINO-basher Ann Coulter​ has said “Romney could actually beat Obama” and that Perry “won’t live up to expectations.” Coulter and the GOP establishment are wrong. Not only is Perry the favorite of rank-and-file Republicans, he is far better positioned than Romney to debate the President on the two issues that will inevitably dominate next year’s campaign — jobs and health care.
