Rick Perry For President: Not Dead Yet (But Close)

“FIRST IN THE SOUTH” HEADQUARTERS IS SHUTTERED … || By FITSNEWS || Last month we wrote on the impending exit of former Texas governor Rick Perry from the 2016 presidential race … adding our hope was that the crony capitalist “Republican” would drop out sooner rather than later. A month…


|| By FITSNEWS || Last month we wrote on the impending exit of former Texas governor Rick Perry from the 2016 presidential race … adding our hope was that the crony capitalist “Republican” would drop out sooner rather than later.

A month later Perry – who stopped paying his staff last month – is somehow still campaigning, even though national surveys of GOP primary voters have him polling at 1.3 percent.

Ouch …

After a brief flirtation with frontrunner status, Perry’s 2012 bid flamed out in spectacular fashion.  He vowed to run a smarter campaign this go-round … then didn’t.

The latest news from Perry’s “campaign death watch?”

Courtesy of CNN’s Elizabeth Landers, we learn Perry has shuttered his South Carolina headquarters.

From her report …

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry has shuttered his South Carolina campaign headquarters in the capital city of Columbia, his state chairman Katon Dawson confirmed Tuesday.

This comes almost a month after the Perry campaign announced that it would no longer be paying staff across the country.

Dawson attributes the move out of the building, which he provided for the Perry campaign in his retainer fee, to a “hot new client” that a realtor found for the space.

A “hot new client?”

LOLz …

You gotta admire the sh*t-spinning ability of Dawson, the auto parts salesman turned SCGOP chairman whose claim to fame remains his on-again, off-again membership in a Columbia, S.C. whites-only country club.

We’re sure he’ll land with some other establishment “Republican” candidate (a.k.a. “hot new client”) after he finishes milking Perry for every last dime … again.

Ricky Perry, Tim Tebow – great predictions from our great wizard Grande Tangito. Rick Perry will win, Perry’s the man, Perry’s gonna kick ass. What a moron.

Where is Tango, by the way? Outside of posting under a million aliases, while Will allows him to do so to drive up the count of viewers who routinely kick his ass.

From what I understand GT was so much more compelling as a writer, and he so cleverly pointed out so many contradictions by the authors of this site, they banned him. And he schooled a lot of the vapid and Dumbass Democrats, too.

When you are as sharp as GT, people get jealous. And with certain kinds of people, their ego cannot accept being smaller. And BIG T is big…in ways FITSNews did not want to be compared….

Smirks can answer for himself/herself, but mamatiger92 is self-employed, so no.

A few mornings ago, traveling south on Augusta Rd in West Cola near the Wal Mart, I found myself behind an older model, dark blue, Dodge pickup truck. There were dozens of stickers on the tailgate for Haley, Joe Wilson, and just about any and every Republican who demonstrates what is wrong with that party for multitudes of reasons. The yahoo driving it was talking on his cell phone as he exited onto I-26 from Augusta Rd. I couldn’t help but notice the strong vibes I was getting that were practically yelling in my ear, “that there is Grand Tango”.

I noted that he had some kind of specialty SC license plate but it was not a vanity or handicap plate. Unfortunately, I was not in a ]osition to write it down.

When I got home though,I noticed something…

I don’t know when I realized I was gay,

I think it was around the age of 16. It wasn’t until I turned 18 that I decided it wasn’t going to go away, and I needed to start accepting that was who I was. I got really depressed, scared, angry, and felt alone through those 2 years.

It built up so much, that I needed to do something. I remember one day flicking through the White Pages, I wasn’t really looking for a number. I was just bored. I found a telephone number under a counseling heading near the front of the book. It said “Gay and Lesbian Counseling Line… 4pm – Midnight” then the phone number. I needed to talk to someone , not friends or family… I needed to talk to someone I didn’t know, so I called the counseling line which I had found in the phone book. I remember calling all but the last digit of the phone number, and then hanging up because I was too scared – I did this 10 or more times… I didn’t know what was going to happen, I didn’t even know if I could talk to a stranger.

CorruptionInColumbia September 9, 2015 at 8:37 am

Ok, I guess that WAS GT’s truck, therefore the fake post above. Oh what the hell, I might as well confess my closeted lesbians tendencies!

GT a genius, U look like Moron September 8, 2015 at 8:40 pm

I think GT called Perry EXACTLY right, and he has never said Tebow would make the NFL. He desperately wants Tebow to get a shot, if I read GT right, because GT does not want to see leftwing hate and bigotry prevail.

But you DID Guarantee Hillary would be the next president, you said Tom Ervin was a LOCK for governor, and you said Ravenel would take enough votes to elect Brad Hutto…

On top of that, you said Obama would add millions and millions of jobs, balance the budget, and you said Obama would fix health care and the US would be more respected around the world, and there would be peace.

You may be the biggest FUCKING idiot to ever live.

Rocky Verdad September 8, 2015 at 9:24 pm

Well, he did add millions and millions of jobs, fixed health care and the US is more respected around the world. So the only thing he missed was balancing the budget (which I see the Republicans aren’t doing either), and you can’t always insure peace after someone asshole shattered the Middle East with a stupid war.

What you left out... September 9, 2015 at 6:11 am

But the jobs Obama allegedly added were in China and India…no one can afford to do business in the US….

Obama: “fixed” health care to where the payer have NO insurance, and those non-payers already covered by Medicaid – who are poor self-caretakers on ER only patients – have Cadillac plans that are bankrupting the liberal states stupid enough to implement them…

Obama is more respected by the Third-World and Terrorists because his mentality is just as hateful, ignorant and backward as theirs…

Obama spent more than any president – D or R- in the history of the nation; and all he did was waste the money tear us down…and he has caused MORE war by his ignorance of bad people….

Rocky Verdad September 9, 2015 at 8:02 am

And let’s not forget he was elected by landslides, twice.

rockyverdudsuglywife September 9, 2015 at 8:07 am

The voters haven’t forgotten:

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 30% of Likely U.S. Voters say they would vote for the president if he ran for a third term. Sixty-three percent (63%) would not.

UglyDogsLoveYou September 9, 2015 at 8:13 am

And that’s relevent because why? Because his approval numbers are higher than 30% – what was W’s in his last two years – right – 30%.

Who names their kid “Katon”?

CorruptionInColumbia September 9, 2015 at 8:22 am

I was just pondering what kind of person would name their kid such a fucked up name. It seems to possibly be a prerequisite for holding positions as upper level Republican operatives in SC.

Katon Dawson

Tucker Eskew (said with a weird through-the-nose lisp, like someone poorly trying to imitate a male homosexual stereotype voice)

Cubby Culbertson

I know there are plenty more, just can’t recall them right now.

They are like the white version of common good rat names such as Quantavious, LaMarquis, etc.

erneba September 8, 2015 at 6:54 pm

It has been a terrible primary season for lower tier Republican hopefuls. They just can’t get an attention. Perry calls major press conference and one nineteen year old part time local radio station employee shows up and records something that never airs.
Donald Trump has reporters from all major Networks and Cable channels following him around all day and records every fart and burp and plays it on prime time newscasts.
There are more Republican candidates at the lower tiers on the polls that will soon be closing offices and saving money.

vicupstate September 8, 2015 at 8:29 pm

Not as long as they have a billionaire Sugar Daddy in their corner, which many do. Perry doesn’t, but even he has millions in his Super Pac. There are limitations on that money though, which prevent paying staff or office rent.

Why do U hate America? September 8, 2015 at 8:33 pm

You’re dancing on Perry’s grave, but obama killed the country and you sat on your ass, silent. Dumbass.

The lame-ass GOP tossed Perry under the truck. He likely announces third party at some point. He’s not going to quick this easily this time.

Tom September 9, 2015 at 10:12 am

Do you think he will try to run for President of Texas post secession? Because that is the only way he will ever be President of anything.

Well the connection to SC is tangential at best. The one of the party’s under investigation has a vacation home here. In any even it doesn’t matter. Christie’s campaign is as dead as Perry’s.

Also, corrupt Republican is hardly news anymore. Investigation finds a Republican who is not corrupt. Now that would be a breaking news headline.

Jim September 9, 2015 at 6:43 am

If you are looking for a salesman without honor and character Katon Dawson is your man. He is the Bernie Madoff of SC politics.

Corruption September 9, 2015 at 7:27 am

His campaign is only kept alive as a zombie, fed by SuperPac money.

Tom September 9, 2015 at 9:55 am

Perry will hang on until at least one other Republican drops out. He does not want to have added to his bio that he was the first Republican to drop out of the 2016 Election.
