GOP Primary News And Notes - Perry Rakes In The Cash, Debates, Cain Surges And Romney Talks Like A Democrat (Again)

Rick Perry may have had a less than stellar roll out with voters but he's rolling in the dough.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry raised $17 million during the third fundraising quarter of the year despite a late entry into the race and a compressed time frame for raising money, campaign spokesman Mark Miner said Wednesday.

The number is significantly higher than the $10 million that the campaign had been floating as its target for the quarter. It is also nearly as high as the $18 million haul his chief rival, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, brought in during the second quarter. And it is likely higher than the $10 million to $12 million Romney is expected to raise during the third quarter.

Of that $17 million, Perry still has $15 million in the bank. So while his first month to 6 weeks on the trail was awful from a polling perspective at least it was cheap. If and it this point, it's a big if, Perry gets his act together, he's got plenty of money to capitalize on it.

Perry's next chance to try again on the debate front will be next week at an event held by Bloomberg TV and the Washington Post which will be moderated by...Charlie Rose?

A couple of things-

First, Bloomberg TV? If the idea is to hold one of these things and not have anyone see it...Mission Accomplished.

Second, Charlie Rose? That means each question will be 9 minutes long and candidates will have 1 minute to answer, though they will be frequently interrupted by the moderator during that time.

Overall the idea of holding a debate focused exclusively on the economy/federal spending is a good one. It should favor Romney and Cain. For Perry, it's a chance to connect his record in Texas to his vision for the future of America. He really needs to find a way to do that or he'll simply continue to squander one of his major advantages over both Romney and Obama.

For more on the GOP "debates", you should be subscribing to guest blogger Ben Domenech's free daily email newsletter (subscribe here).

But this gets back to a larger question: why are we letting the media dictate this crap? Why can't actually conservative/Republican organizations step in and take a leadership role in sponsoring these and winnowing the field? Why can't we have questioner panels on topical issues? Wouldn't it be better to see panels with questions from folks like Steve Moore, Charles Krauthammer, Steve Hayward, John Bolton, Elliott Abrams, Jim Pethokoukis and others? Why do we let the least serious people in the world, with an ideological bent against the right to boot, decide what questions matter?

For comparison, here's Reagan and HW Bush duking it out in 1980. Anderson was still in the race at this point (had just scored two strong third place finishes in Wisconsin and Kansas at 27% and 18%), so was Howard Baker, so was Phil Crane... these are not small personalities, that's the Senate Minority Leader for crying out loud. But the candidates told them to go screw and debated in Houston. They actually just talk through policy! Reagan and Bush are, in that clip, disagreeing about how much you can cut taxes without spending cuts at the same time, disagreeing about Art Laffer... Imagine being able to see a debate where the candidates just talk to each other for a good chunk of time. Thats what theyre supposed to be, not ping-based gameshows.

In horse race news...Herman Cain momentum is starting to show up in the polls.

Herman Cain's rise through the Republican field continued Wednesday, as a new national poll found the former businessman tied with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for first place in the latest CBS News poll.

Cain and Romney both earned the support of 17 percent of American voters - a rise of 12 percentage points for Cain compared to two weeks ago. His support seems to have come almost entirely to the detriment of Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who nearly halved his number of supporters, falling 11 percentage points from 23 to 12 percent.

Romney has more or less run a Rose Garden primary campaign, just sort of floating around in the low to mid 20's nationally and watching contenders like Bachmann and Perry come and go.

Cain obviously has the momentum for the moment coming off his strong performances in the Florida debate and straw poll but it will be interesting to see if Romney takes him seriously enough to go after at some point. Right now Cain is benefiting from people's reactions to his personality more than anything. What will happen to him when voters and pundits start taking a serious look at his 9-9-9 plan or other candidates take him seriously enough to be worth attacking? Being able to take and throw a punch are important political skills. We don't know yet if Cain has them.

Speaking of throwing a punch, Mitt flailed around at Perry yesterday in an attempt to scare the old folks.

I dont think the major problem is that Social Security is a Ponzi scheme, said Mr. Romney, referring to the description used by Gov. Rick Perry of Texas. I think the problem is keeping it from becoming a Perry scheme.

Reassuring the crowd, almost all of whom were old enough to have started collecting their benefits, he explained, Social Security is not going to change for anyone in this room.

Except for those two little ones right here, he joked, pointing at two grade-schoolers in the front row. (And they hardly seemed to mind that their plan might be changing down the road after the event, they approach Mr. Romney for his autograph).

When Mr. Romney first began to engage Mr. Perry several weeks ago, he did so over the issue of Social Security, and it was a topic he made sure to emphasize here.

One of my contenders in the Republican Party says Social Security is a Ponzi scheme, he said. I dont happen to think thats the case. I think Social Security has worked pretty darn well for 75 years.

Presidential campaigns aren't beanbag but this "Perry scheme" stuff is stunningly dishonest. Perry has been clear, though not as strongly as he needs to be compared to his passionate critique of the system, that if you are on Social Security now or getting close to it, nothing is going to change.

One advantage to the way Mitt is attacking Perry is that if Perry does become the nominee, he'll already have run and won against someone using the Democrats entitlements playbook.

Romney is a flip-flopper/moderate.

Perry is an illegal-immigration squish.

Cain is a little too opportunistic with this pouncing on the Perry Rock and saying he couldn't vote for Perry if he's the nominee.

Bachmann is wild-eyed crazy.

Santorum is a whining, angry bitch.

Newt talks a good game, but can't really be trusted. (And his wife is creepy)

Huntsman is a fairy.

Ron Paul is insane.

---That's not true. He was pretty dogged, actually, about laying blame on Perry via the "just asking questions" technique in his Amanpour interview.Via Althouse:
AMANPOUR: ... And it's been -- it's been painted over. But
the report raises questions about whether this rock, this stone, with
that word on it, was still on display even quite recently in the last
several years. What is your reaction to that?



CAIN: My reaction is that is very insensitive.... And since Governor
Perry has been going there for years to hunt, I think that it shows a
lack of sensitivity for a long time of not taking that word off of that
rock and renaming the place. It's just basically a case of
insensitivity.



AMANPOUR: It was painted over.



CAIN: Yes. It was painted over. But how long ago was it painted over? So I'm still saying that it is a sign of insensitivity.Cain
showed an insufficient concern about accuracy, to the point where
Amanpour had to prompt him about the facts. He was helping WaPo
propagate its meme about Perry, southerners, and racism. To give him a
pass on that because he's "a man with the living memory of what life was
like for black people in the segregated South" as Serwer put it is
patronizing. I doubt very much that Herman Cain wants that kind of
special treatment. But, of course, it isn't really any kind of caring
concern for this man and his painful memories. It's one more application
of the template: Republicans have a race problem. Serwer is happy to
perform that service. How's that for postracial?

He's proven through the years that he will do and say anything to get and stay elected. I am still for Perry. Second choice is Cain and distant third is Romney.

70 So far we have Cain making blanket statements about Muslims which he "fixes" by meeting with Muslims and then blathering some idiocy about "understanding" and we have Cain accusing Perry of insensitivity over some rock on land Perry's dad leased for hunting.

So that's pretty nauseating.

And, we know that's he's for affirmative action.


Moreover, we know nothing about what he accomplished at the Fed (or how he warranted that post, frankly) except that we know he doesn't want it audited. What, exactly, are this guy's qualifications?

Posted by: Dave at October 05, 2011 11:43 AM (Xm1aB)

This bothered me the most. I love both Cain and Perry. I was hoping for a Perry/Cain ticket if Rubio is serious about not running for VP. Cain needs to walk that shit back like he did the stupid rock comment and he needs a little more discipline with the off the cuff comments about other candidates. These fuckers forget that ultimately they're on the same side.

Posted by: Ms Choksondik at October 05, 2011 12:05 PM (nxptv)

82 Cain can't seem to make up his mind about stuff. First he said Awlaki should have due process and an indictment, then he said he doesn't remember saying that.

First he's against Muslims in high office, then he's for it. This guy is out of his depth.

Can we please have a nominee that isn't a brain-dead sock-puppet for his "advisors?"

There is this at wiki FWIW-

*****

2004 U.S. Senate candidacy
Main article: United States Senate election in Georgia, 2004

In 2004, Cain ran for the U.S. Senate in Georgia, pursuing the seat that came open with the retirement of Democrat Zell Miller. Cain sought the Republican nomination, facing congressmen Johnny Isakson and Mac Collins in the primary. Cain and Collins both hoped to deny Isakson a majority on primary day in order to force him into a runoff. Collins tried to paint Cain as a moderate,[23] citing Cain's support for affirmative action programs, while Cain argued that he was a conservative, noting that he opposed the legality of abortion except when the mother's life is threatened.[24] Cain finished second in the primary with 26.2% of the vote, ahead of Collins, who won 20.6%, but because Isakson won 53.2% of the vote, Isakson was able to avoid a runoff.[25]

116 They all have faults but any of the current top 3 (Romney,Perry and Cain) would be so much better for the country. IMO we need to work hard on putting conservatives in congress is Romney gets the nod as he can only be trusted to go along with a conservative congress. I believe Perry would be better but still need a conservative congress to get anywhere. I honestly believe Cain would actively work from the presidency to start actually shrinking our bloated bureaucracy and would only need a congress that couldn't completely thwart him (also Cain is most likely to be able to out-talk the marx spew media in a Reagan fashion. ) OTOH I am really disappointed that Cain has let the media trap him into anti-Perry statements. He needed to be smart enough to say "I'm the best candidate and I'm focusing on that right now, not on who I'd pick if I wasn't in the race"

Long story short, any campaign donations I make will depend on who wins the primary. If its Romney I will only donate to conservative congressional candidates. If its Perry I will donate to conservative PACS who may support him as well as congressional candidates. If Cain makes it I would support his presidential bid directly.

His actions and facts contradict the caricature you guys portray.

141 So, guys, I have to correct myself. That Wiki article someone quoted above does not provide a citation that really supports the assertion that Cain supports affirmative action. I had read that he did (here in the comments) and then did a sloppy check to Wiki.

What I found is that he was accused of supporting it during his failed 2004 Senate bid and I found an op-ed he wrote denying that charge.

To be honest, I do not like how he framed his position. I've seen it before from other politicians and it just strikes me as a "wink-wink" when they frame affirmative action as being equal to quotas. AA is more subtle than that -- it means factoring race into the equation. It does not have to mean quotas. I'd link it but the site isn't loading right now, but it was in the Augusta Chronicle.

I would really want to know how Cain's business handled that, but I suspect we'll never be able to find out that information.

143 Did Rep. Bachmann say Obama should be impeached? Bachmann spokeswoman says no:

After visiting a coffee shop in this small Iowa town, Bachmann was
asked by a man in the crowd, When will we impeach him and get him out
of the way? The candidate replied, Well, Ill tell you, Ill tell you,
I agree, I agree. Some people are really upset. Then she moved on to
the next well-wisher.

Campaign spokesperson Alice Stewart said later, She was not saying
that she agrees that Obama should be impeached. She agreed with the man
on what they were talking about before- that people are frustrated.

*Bush predicted deficits from Reagan's tax cuts, but also predicted 30% interest rates.

*Bush uses his hands too much like most desperate speakers do.

*It gets good at the 6 min mark, and Reagan, who refers to Bush as George throughout, nails it in the end.

161 You can find a reference to the interview at accessnorthga.com

Collins says Cain, the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, is moderate too, but he has declined to elaborate on that until closer to the campaign.

His campaign last week floated a charge that Cain had once supported race-based quotas for college admissions, citing an Atlanta Journal-Constitution article from last August in which Cain said he believed in affirmative action but not "one-size-fits-all applications." The article doesn't say Cain supported quotas, and his campaign insists he never has.

Well, Perry acknowledges that it existed. So photos aren't needed for that. And one explanation for why it didn't come up before is that it's Texas and most folks there weren't alive when politically incorrect names for landmarks were coined, so the state voters don't care much. But "Texans don't care about use of that word" is probably not an effective retort.

---I point that out because the fact that in my own hiring process (outside committees) did not factor race/gender/etc wouldn't say much about how AA is actually, you know, applied in real life... which is the topic at hand, isn't it.
When universities do admissions at the graduate level (something within my direct experience) or when they do hiring at the faculty or staff level, they do not have a quota that they are using to make those hires. They do, however, apply affirmative action in terms of both broadening the pool (interviewing people who would not be interviewed otherwise based on their color, for example) and in terms of hiring. The latter is tricky because in theory it's "all things being equal go with the person of color," but the reality is that things are never equal, particularly at the faculty ranks because the scholarly areas covered are rarely identical.
So I stand by my statement: in practice affirmative action is not limited to hiring quotes. Any politician that tries to claim that they are opposed to AA by saying they are opposed to quotas is dodging the issue.

210 don't know, I wasn't there, but if candidates are expected to take time to react to every person in the audience who givesa bad reaction, you can be sure that the debates will be subject to constant distractions.

211 189 #142--"It may not be as agregious as what we see by people who LOVE playing the card, but he is on his way down theslope now." Uhhhh...then why NOTHING MORE since the first day? Can anyone find a single instance of Mr. Cain INITIATING this subject? BTW, is having the word "N!GGER" prominently displayed ANYWHERE in post-1864 America not a sign of "insensitivity?" Hell, even in the Jim Crow South they used "colored" on the bathroom signs. "It is what it is," people.

Clearly you would support the removal of the word NIGARRDLY from the dictionary. Instead of educating people we just cow-tow to their perceived offenses. Face the truth. he got butt hurt over a non-issue without first finding out the facts all because he fell into that scrunt's sloppy questioning. He couldn't help himself. It was inevitable. In past interviews over similar types af things he was able to state that it was much ado about nothing. This was too. AND the facts were not there to support any offense. Prominantly displayed? Show me that it was prominant. Show me ANY evidence it was not covered as soon as it was discovered.....notwithstanding the fact Perry had nothing to do with it, did not own the land, and it was his father's lease.

212 "just sort of floating around the mid-twenties"
I don't see anyone winning the nomination with those numbers.
Doesn't matter, I'm an Indie and I didn't vote for Urkel the first time. FU GOP.

213 Show me any evidence that Mr. Cain pushed this issue on his own, or responded out of proportion.

I'll never support the elimination of any words in the dictionary, though "cow"-tow shd be spelled "kowtow." In the dictionary. And niggardly is a perfectly good, unobjectionable word, unless you're an ignoramus. And we got a lot of those these days, unfortunately.

But neither Cain nor Perry is an ignoramus.

214 Obama is a stuttering clusterf*ck of a miserable failure.

215 "RedEye"'s Greg Gutfelt asked Cain about why Perry is losing ground, gives 3 logical reasons--no "race-baiting" whatsoever:

(See the show at http://video.foxnews.com, I don't know how to use tinyurl.)

For supporters of a tall, tough-talkin Texan, these guys are awfully thin-skinned...But remember:

Rick Perry is never as strong as he looks.
