COMMENTARY | Give Texas Gov. Rick Perry a big welcome of applause. He sure knows how to create a sense of drama surrounding the announcement today that he'll run for president.
With the Ames Straw Poll in progress in Iowa, the long, tall Texan headed to South Carolina, another early primary voting state, where the official announcement took place. If the "long, tall Texan" tag sounds a bit too fatuous, consider that many Republicans have greeted the current field of candidates with yawns and snide comments.
Not me. At this point, I like them all. America needs to turn from the path of European socialism-lite, and any of the GOP candidates will do.
I identify with Rick Perry already. Like the Texas governor, I sometimes take a pistol with me when I'm jogging or hiking along lonely roads and trails. Pennsylvania has more bears than thugs, but neither is in short supply.
