Perry presidential trial balloon
From a National Journal interview with Grover Norquist:
Q: Jeb Bush would clear the field?Passed on without comment, at least for right now.
Norquist: I think the reason there is a chance for Jeb Bush, and the governor of Texas, or Mark Sanford, the governor of South Carolina, is that all three could run on spending. They have been good on taxes, but they have also been good on spending. [Texas Gov.] Rick Perry cut $10 billion out of the biennial budget when he was first elected, when he was cleaning up after the previous governor's [George W. Bush] spending spree. Jeb Bush has dropped state employment 5 percent a year. Pretty good. Sanford, 100 vetoes [of spending] that the Legislature overrode. Each of those three guys could run as a Reagan Republican, Bush-friendly spending-restraint guy, and I tend to think that is something that will give credibility to candidates.
I'll comment for ya! ;)
