Here is  what the former Governor has to say on the Perry / Bush dust-up…interesting insight from the Howlin’ Mad Man himself.


Dean: Bush camp will ‘take Perry out’

By Daniel Strauss – 08/17/11 01:59 PM ET

Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean predicted that prominent political supporters of former President George W. Bush will deal a critical blow to Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s (R) presidential campaign.

“The Bush people don’t fool around, as you know,” Dean said Tuesday night on MSNBC. “You can say a lot of things about Bush’s presidency and his failures as president, but one thing nobody should say [anything] bad about [is] his political team. They know what they’re doing, and they are ruthless, and they are going to take Perry out.”

Dean’s comments come as a number of former Bush administration operatives have criticized recent comments Perry has made. Political strategist and Bush adviser Karl Rove said comments Perry made about Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke were not “a presidential statement.”

“It’s not smart politics, either,” Rove said on Fox News. “Governor Perry is going to have to fight the impression that he’s a cowboy from Texas. This simply added to it.”

Perry came under fire by prominent Republicans for saying that Bernanke would be treated “pretty ugly” in Texas for deciding to print more money, an action the governor called “almost treasonous.”

The readiness of Rove and other former Bush administration officials to criticize Perry illustrates a longstanding rift between the camps of the two Texas politicians.

    Perry’s defeated them once, he will again. The Bush Mafia needs to be politically destroyed.

    Perry got in as Gov. in 2006 with only 39% of the vote.

    We here in Texas know him for what he is.

    He has snake skin and uses it.

    Howard Dean aka Howard the duck without the cool factor.

    Rove wants a candidate with gravitas. Easier to sell and easier to control. All the tea party candidates are going to have some home grown no bullshit ideas that make Rove nauseous. He should embrace it in stead of working against it.

    Re: Perry… I am on the fence. If he is the POTUS candidate I will vote for him. But I would like to hear more on his views about sharia. He doesn’t seem like a champion for the little guy. Would he leave Campos in jail like GWB did?

    If the bush folks are after him, then seek out GWB and I think he will remain non comittal.

    @ 10 Speranza: people want jobs. If he can prove himself as the job machine he will grind obama down.
