Why you don’t ‘mess with Texas’
Gov. Rick Perry of Texas makes the Republican establishment very nervous.
The George W. Bush people are virtually apoplectic over the prospect of Perry’s winning the nomination. Karl Rove warned on Fox News, “Gov. Perry is going to have to fight the impression that he’s a cowboy from Texas.” Rove wrote in his column, “The Republican Party will find it more difficult to gain the support [of disaffected Obama voters] if its nominee adopts a tone that’s harshly negative.”
