Rick Perry Should Not Be Underestimated in His Presidential Run - A Whittle Bit of Commentary 6/5/15

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Transcript (may appear different than audio recording):

The meme that Rick Perry is an idiot is already all over Twitter and will show up soon in the media, but Perry isn’t an idiot. Yes, Perry’s last attempt at the White House was a disaster. He’s had plenty of time to fix what went wrong in 2012. Perry has some advantages others don’t have running and that is that he has a real record. Real results. Under Perry’s leadership, Texas lead the nation in job creation in 2013 and 2014. As bad as the economy is, with the millions of Americans unemployed and underemployed, that’s his bestselling point. He also sent National Guard troops to the Texas border in summer 2014 to help stop the flow of illegal families and teens into the state. Perry will really have to work hard to get his name out there and show that he’s changed since 2012, but the other Republicans should not underestimate him. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
