All Things Perry...
I made it known last month that my fairly consistent first choice for the (R) candidate for president is Rick Perry (of those who officially threw their hats in the ring). Over the last six months we've all seen the booms and busts of quite a few candidates and potential candidates.
Romney (who never seems to be able to get above 25% - no surprise here)
And the remaining existing crazies, light weights or long shots:
Perry has been making a strong and steady comeback. Below is a list of more links, stories, interviews, debate updates and campaign ads.
The Cornerstone Speech in late October (in full, not in distorted snippets and soundbites).
Gator at RedState's 11/10 post on Perry.
Erick at RedState's 11/14 post on Perry.
Ken Blackwell's 11/13 post on Perry at TownHall.
Perry's take-down of the President.
Full 3-hour video of the Thanksgiving Family Forum with the candidates (Romney and Huntsman declined to attend).
Perry's ad that ran on during the Leno/Tonight Show broadcast on December 1.
Erick at RedState analyzes the comeback of Perry in his 12/4 post.
His fight against "political correctness" here.
And Capt. Ed's post on Perry's big push in that state (via HotAir), and about Perry hitting the road in Iowa.
Perry talks about his back surgery in July, and it's effect on the early part of his campaign.
Ben Howe at RedState talks about "the Perry I know" which also has an 11-minute clip of Perry talking to veterans.
The Huckabee Forum and Perry suggests term limits for Supreme Court Justices.
Yet another new ad in Iowa here ("Momentum").
Clip of Perry at the last debate on 12/15.
Erick's analysis of that debate here.
And, finally, Perry's newest ad focusing back on the economy.
That gives you all plenty of stuff to read, watch and listen.
BTW... Perry's Official Website.
