BUMPED: Obama’s worst nightmare comes true! Rick Perry Enters G.O.P. Race for President

This is the big one!

Rick Perry entering the race for the GOP nomination makes an already formidable field of candidates that much stronger.

Whoever emerges the eventual winner will be the person to return the country back to sanity and away from the radical Liberal/Progressive agenda that has the country on the verge of bankruptcy.

I equate this to when a already good baseball gets that last piece of the puzzle and it improves the rest of the lineup overnight.

Romney, Backmann, Cain and the others all have to step up their games and that’s a very good thing.

New York Times

Rick Perry of Texas announced Saturday that he was running for president, declaring it was “time to get America working again” as he sought to offer the Republican Party a well-rounded candidate who appeals to fiscal conservatives and can also rally the evangelical base.

As many of his fellow candidates flooded Iowa over the weekend to woo voters at the Ames Straw Poll, Mr. Perry headed here to announce that he was seeking the nomination at the
RedState Gathering, an annual convention of conservative bloggers.

“I came to South Carolina because I will not sit back and accept the path that America is on, because a great country requires a better direction, because a renewed nation needs a new president,” he said.

“With the support of my family and unwavering belief in the goodness of America, I declare to you today as a candidate for president of the United States.”

And with that, Mr. Perry, 61, whose spectral presence has lingered over the Republican primary contest — he was even the topic of a question at Thursday night’s Republican debate in Iowa — officially became a candidate for the Republican nomination.

Mr. Perry’s entrance into an already crowded field is expected to reconfigure the dynamics of the race, offering Republicans a fiscal and social conservative who not only appeals to the party’s base but can also challenge Mitt Romney, who is leading in many polls, on jobs and the economy.

I love Bachmann, Cain and Santorum. Perry though jumps to the top of my list. But like Sarah Palin said, “ABO Anybody but Obama!”
