From "Howdy thank you Erick" to "A pundit sitting behind a desk" in four months

Seven days ago Stacy McCain asked this ques­tion:

Maybe Erick Erick­son can explain what pur­pose is served by Perry’s con­tin­ued can­di­dacy, other than spend­ing the rest of the mil­lions the Perry cam­paign col­lected in August and early Sep­tem­ber, before the wheels fell off that bandwagon.

Appar­ently he can’t

Bar­ring a mir­a­cle, this is Rick Perry’s final act in the 2012 elec­tions. On Sat­ur­day, he will come in last in South Car­olina. It will be only the third time in a gen­er­a­tion Rick Perry has lost an elec­tion, with the only other two times being Iowa and New Hamp­shire this year.

For a gen­er­a­tion, Rick Perry was unde­feated. Now he will go back to Texas and every­one who ever lost to Rick Perry will seek to set­tle old scores. It will be a tough, bloody fight. He will have to be ready for it.

At Hotair they note the change from Howdy thank you Erick to well

The governor’s focused on the peo­ple of South Car­olina and their votes, not a pun­dit sit­ting behind a com­puter somewhere.”

Remem­ber Erick is not depen­dent on the mil­lions Gov Perry has raised for his pay but those con­sul­tants deter­mined to keep him in the race should remem­ber this as well:

I think Perry’s deci­sion to stay in and his likely spec­tac­u­lar rejec­tion by south­ern vot­ers will not only be the final nail in the cof­fin for a Perry 2012 run, but will pre­clude any chance of a suc­cess­ful Perry 2016 run.

Now as a San­to­rum man I’m not in favor of the whole “Endorse Newt” busi­ness, but just as Perry is higher on my vot­ing order than Newt (2nd & 3rd behind San­to­rum) so is Newt higher on my order than Romney.

I don’t fault those who like Gov Perry for stick­ing with him, he would make a fine pres­i­dent, but with almost cer­tain humil­i­a­tion in the cards for him ask your­self this ques­tion: Do you want him to stay in for his sake or for yours?

Seven days ago Stacy McCain asked this question:

Maybe Erick Erickson can explain what purpose is served by Perry’s continued candidacy, other than spending the rest of the millions the Perry campaign collected in August and early September, before the wheels fell off that bandwagon.

Apparently he can’t

Barring a miracle, this is Rick Perry’s final act in the 2012 elections. On Saturday, he will come in last in South Carolina. It will be only the third time in a generation Rick Perry has lost an election, with the only other two times being Iowa and New Hampshire this year.

For a generation, Rick Perry was undefeated. Now he will go back to Texas and everyone who ever lost to Rick Perry will seek to settle old scores. It will be a tough, bloody fight. He will have to be ready for it.

At Hotair they note the change from Howdy thank you Erick to well

“The governor’s focused on the people of South Carolina and their votes, not a pundit sitting behind a computer somewhere.”

Remember Erick is not dependent on the millions Gov Perry has raised for his pay but those consultants determined to keep him in the race should remember this as well:

I think Perry’s decision to stay in and his likely spectacular rejection by southern voters will not only be the final nail in the coffin for a Perry 2012 run, but will preclude any chance of a successful Perry 2016 run.

Now as a Santorum man I’m not in favor of the whole “Endorse Newt” business, but just as Perry is higher on my voting order than Newt (2nd & 3rd behind Santorum) so is Newt higher on my order than Romney.

I don’t fault those who like Gov Perry for sticking with him, he would make a fine president, but with almost certain humiliation in the cards for him ask yourself this question: Do you want him to stay in for his sake or for yours?
