CNBC is reporting this morning that Rick Perry will be dropping out of the presidential race this morning.
Good riddance to the man who decided to bring “vulture capitalist” into the discussion. What a disappointment he’s been, starting off as a
person who seemed like he could have been a true conservative champion and devolving into stutters, memory lapses, and assaults on free enterprise.
As reporter and commentator John Harwood put it this morning, “I was totally wrong about Rick Perry. I thought he was a formidable, full-spectrum conservative who could take on Mitt Romney. He simply couldn’t perform… he simply wasn’t able to communicate effectively.”
Harwood believes, as I do, that Perry’s handful of votes will go to Newt Gingrich and perhaps give a boost to Newt Gingrich as the anti-Romney, with Rick Santorum “dead in the water in South Carolina.”
Tonight’s debate (8 PM Eastern on CNN) will take place with only four participants. Gingrich would be very happy if there were only three.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
