A Welcome Addition (Townhall.com) August 26, 2011Posted by daviddavenport in Radio Commentaries.
With President Obama’s polling numbers dropping, and his support from
independent voters eroding, he certainly looks beatable in 2012. But the race is not simply a “yes” or “no” vote on Obama. It will take a Republican with broad appeal to win.
Perhaps Rick Perry is a Republican who can win. First, in a party with conservatives of many stripes—fiscal, social, Constitutional and religious—Perry appears to be conservative across the board. As a governor, he has cut spending, kept taxes low and balanced the budget.
He seems to have a message with broader appeal as well—his state has grown jobs, which is the number one issue on the minds of voters. He is well spoken, has charisma and, as one study says is required, even has good hair!
Rick Perry is a welcome addition to a large field that, to this point, many feel had lacked sufficiently conservative credentials and star quality.
