Rick Perry's Stealth Announcement of his Run for President 2016

It looks like Rick Perry has beaten Hillary Clinton to the starting gate by announcing that he will be running for president in 2016.  Of course it was a stealth announcement because all he really announced was that he would not seek another term as governor.

This was not unpredictable. Perry postponed the announcement to work on the Texas abortion debate. That delay signaled that his remaining work to do on that issue was kind of a finishing up effort. He didn't want his retirement announcement to interfere with his efforts on that front. It was clear at that point that he was planning to announce his ending of his role as governor of Texas. And as I said that was a stealth announcement of his plans to run for president in 2016.

I guess it isn't really all that stealthy then, is it?


  1. Somebody has to lose the primaries, it might as well be this guy.

  2. He's got a long way to go if he wants to win the nomination and further still if he wants to be president. Your comment Grant, is not unduly harsh.


Disagreement is always welcome. Please remain civil. Vulgar or disrespectful comments towards anyone will be removed.
