Rush Limbaugh: “I Hope Perry Stays In”
“I hope he stays in.” said Rush Limbaugh today on his radio show, after acknowledging that there was some confusion about whether Rick Perry had decided to stay in the race for president or not.
“Does he have a high enough base here to pull off what now would be a miracle?” asked Limbaugh, “I hope he stays in.”
Limbaugh noted that he wasn’t surprised of Santorum’s sudden rise in Iowa, noting that he had ‘no doubt’ he, Perry or Bachmann would make a good president.
“Now, Newt.” said Limbaugh shortly, “Newt is ticked off.”
From Rush Limbaugh’s website:
There was a tweet, you know, Perry last night said he’s gonna head back to Texas for prayer and reflection to figure out what he should do next. ‘Cause he spent a lot of money in Iowa, and it didn’t translate to votes. And the theory is that, you know, money didn’t translate to votes in Iowa, then it may not translate to votes anywhere else. And is it worth going into debt? Does he have a high enough base here to pull off what now would be a miracle? I hope he stays in. ‘Cause I told you I like Perry, and I like Santorum, and I told you countless times I know either one of those guys — and I said this about Bachmann as well — if any of them are elected president, I have no doubt whatsoever they are gonna be fighting for this country each and every day, no doubt whatsoever. I hope Perry stays in.
