Draggingtree Posted August 14, 2015 Share Posted August 14, 2015 RedState: Rick Perry’s Path to the White House By: Tennessean (Diary) | August 14th, 2015 at 12:18 PM Rick Perry possesses an outstanding record of conservative governance in leading the world’s 12th largest economy over a 14 year period. America’s anemic economic recovery occurred only because of Perry’s conservative penicillin he skillfully administered in Texas during and after the great recession. So why is Rick Perry languishing in the polls? The problem isn’t Rick Perry’s record. His record of accomplishment is unrivaled and staunchly conservative across the board. Perry’s problem lies in his messaging strategy and his current inability to connect with the conservative electorate. Sun Tzu wrote in his Art of War, “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.” Rick Perry knows his own outstanding record, and he’s great at communicating it. It’s one of the reasons his favorables with conservatives are exceptionally high. But he’s suffering defeats in the polls and fundraising because he does not appear to know why Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Donald Trump, Scott Walker, Carly Fiorina and Ben Carson are resonating with voters. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
