Don't Count Out Rick Perry, Say Experts I agree with the article, but not because he is well-bankrolled. I think Rick Perry is the best in the field based on his military experience, and his stunning record on jobs creation across the board. The reason you hear so little about him, is because he is the one the media fears will ultimately take Obama out of the Oval Office. They're scared a conservative Republican will invigorate Americans again to keep the private sector alive and well. Yeah, that puts a crimp in the style of Marxism. I could get used to Marxism going out on a crutch. You go, Rick Perry!
