For those who didn't hear -- or believe -- him the first time, Gov. Perry said again today that he is running for reelection in 2010.
He told reporters at a public event in Fredericksburg that he is like the chief executive of a successful corporation and definitely planned to seek a third full term.
"I look at it like this, is that if Texas were a corporation -- and we would be one of the most efficient, most successful corporations in the world -- and if you're a stockholder in that corporation, why in the world would you want to change your CEO when things are going well?" he said, according to the Associated Press.
By the way, not that I consider these things to be representative of anything, but it's still amusing to see that no one defended Perry in the comments to that post. I know he claims not to pay attention to things like his approval ratings, but you have to figure his advisers are aware of them. I wonder how they plan to deal with it if he really is serious about ginning it up again in 2010. Do they believe his "successful CEO" schtick? I have a hard time imagining it, but stranger things have happened.Posted by Charles Kuffner on May 14, 2008 to Election 2010
