Construing things after their own fashion
I have always believed that Perry is running for national office. Why else would he run for a third term? More land deals? More budget cuts? Pick A&M's next football coach? Prepare for a fourth term in 2014? Been there, done that. He has done everything he can do here. The book is perfectly timed, right at the moment that the focus will shift from 2010 to 2012.
Even if I were to stipulate to all Burka's points, wouldn't they all point towards the idea that he's not running for president in '12? Why would a wannabe president get involved in A&M fights that can only make enemies, not friends?
As for the book release timing, wouldn't the publisher pick a time that maximizes sales?
