Perry’s Problem and it ain’t debating (next debate Tuesday)
HOPKINTON, N.H. — On the eve of Tuesday’s Republican presidential debate, Mitt Romney shopped for votes in a quaint country store and cast himself as a champion of the middle class. Jon Huntsman Jr. released his foreign policy agenda. Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum journeyed from town to town searching for some spark to ignite their struggling campaigns.
But the candidate with perhaps the most at stake in the Washington Post-Bloomberg News debate at Dartmouth College was nowhere to be found. Texas Gov. Rick Perry was holed up somewhere — studying, rehearsing and hoping for a performance to breathe new life into a campaign beset by a series of unsteady debate performances in September.
While Perry was absent from the trail Monday, his campaign was affecting the discourse.
Even as Romney tried to look past his Republican rivals and train his attention on President Obama, a tough new Web video released Monday by Perry’s campaign served as a preview of what Romney is likely to face on the debate stage.
Ann Coulter and I agree that Perry’s problem with the potential to grant amnesty to millions of illegals in this country is far weightier and worrisome than anything Romney believes in or his Romneycare plan. The video if you have not seen it is LOL funny. Romney as talking head especially at the end had me LOL.
