Rick Perry’s Realism: “We’ve Basically Become Pawns Of The Media”

My new column, “Rick Perry’s Long March” looks at the Texas governor on the comeback trail in South Carolina.

The Texas governor was my guest on Wednesday’s radio show —transcript here— and his measured, easy answers demonstrates that while the first few months of the campaign were marred by many mistakes, he does seem to have regained his political bearings and anchored his message.

As Perry noted to me, he’s back doing the retail politics at which he excels in the Palmetto State. His comment on the debates suggests he knows he will have to push back hard against not just Romney but also the MSM meme that he is finished in the next two debates. But he’s not backing off his critique of Romney’s time at the head of Bain even as he promised to support him if he is the nominee. I have to think that he’s much better served talking defense and energy than the different types of venture capital, but don’t dismiss a comeback from the four-term Texas governor.
