Dep't. of What Took So Long: Rick Perry's fundraising dries up


Another performance artist bites the dust. So much for all that cash everyone said Ricky the WonderDunce was going to rake in to keep him in the race.

Via Taegan:

Houston Chronicle: "Perry's associates and supporters say his campaign has redoubled its money-­raising efforts in the past week to ensure that his campaign will have enough money to survive the first three contests of the 2012 election calendar... But Perry's loyal backers are running into resistance from Republican donors. One Perry fundraiser, who asked not to be named, said he received 15 RSVPs for a recent event from potential donors saying they might attend. But after a gaffe-marred Perry debate performance, none showed up...

Gee, who could have anticipated that?

Moral of the Story: 2012 is too soon for Bush III. In fact, it's always too soon for Bush III.

    And then I was just reading on Yahoo....says that Perry is "doubling down" on his Obama attacks.

    Gov Goof is just another picture perfect example of what is wrong in America today.

    Ah, but you can bet Jeb is watching and waiting, and consulting with Rove. I hear Liz Cheney wants a shot at it too.
