Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) revealed “the thing I’ve been working on for the last 22 months,” is “preparing” for his next attempt for the White House in 2016 when he was asked a question about his failed 2012 attempt for presidency.
Perry said, “Preparation to run for the highest office in the country in the most influential position in the world requires an extensive amount of preparation. Whether it’s domestic policy, whether it’s monetary policy. whether it’s foreign policy. I didn’t not prepare. I was a bit arrogant. I was elected governor three times. What could be harder than that?”
“Substantially, preparation is the key to it. And that’s the thing I’ve been working on for the last 22 months. Spent time with Henry Kissinger yesterday, with the Brookings Institute folks. Listening to both sides. Coming up with concepts and ideas of how to deal with this myriad of issues that you face as the leader of the free world, and before that as a candidate. And you’re going to be tested. And you’re going to this be tested greatly. as you should be.”
