Politico, by Maggie Haberman

Original Article

Posted By:BaseballFan, 8/26/2014 5:42:33 PM

Republican strategist and former John McCain consultant Steve Schmidt has joined the team helping Texas Gov. Rick Perry with the strategy around his indictment, POLITICO has learned. Schmidt is the latest addition to a team that Perry has been expanding with legal hands. (Snip) Earlier this week, POLITICO’s Mike Allen reported that Perry had hired former Clinton White House special counsel Mark Fabiani to a team that already included Republican lawyer Ben Ginsberg.

He´ll have to take his head out of Morning Shmoe´s rear end before he can help Perry. He is a McCain loser of the highest order.

Big mistake Ricky boy. Schmidt is a democrat/Obama plant. He´ll make you lose like he helped the doofus McCain lose by holding Palin back and complimenting the Magic Negro "What Me Worry?" president.

Shocking. Why would any Republican hire this lying snake? He as much as engineered McCain´s loss as he deliberately detoured any and all criticism of Obama. Also, it was his grand idea to suspend the campaign during a crucial time -- the moment when McCain was gaining in the polls thanks to the Palin choice.

I have no idea what Perry is thinking here. Someone should give him the heads up he´s let the devil in his house.

2nd post: This may not be about Perry´s potential future campaign, but allowing Schmidt anywhere near him in any way is an enormous mistake. Maybe Perry needs to change his last name to Rubio if this is his judgment in associates. Schmidt is not likely in this to help anyone but himself and those attacking Perry. Proven snake. What the HECK are you thinking, gov?

Schmidt has NO LEGAL background so my jaw dropped when I saw this. What possible "strategy" could he offer regarding an indictment? I will never understand why Republicans keep hiring the same losers over and over. Back in the dark ages you weren´t hired again if you didn´t perform well and do the job successfully. What a concept. I guess it´s the Karl Rove connection.

Why would a Republican want to have anything to do with a guy that regularly attacks Palin, appears on the repulsive MessNBC and with the crass, odious, hateful Bill Maher? He allegedly was "the strategist responsible for the U.S. Supreme Court nominations of Samuel Alito and Chief Justice John Roberts." Well, he got one right anyway.

I´m surprised and disappointed. Has Rick Perry lost his mind, his integrity, or both?

Schmidt is a snake of the lowest order. He and his sidekick Nicole are smear and deceit experts. Backstabbing is their specialty. They should have been kicked out long ago. They are sly allies of our enemies, the Left.

Wow. Rick Perry. I never would have thought this of him.

It´s not a political campaign it´s a legal PR campaign. Ok I guess it is a political campaign but not for office. Schmidt is pretty young, he wouldn´t have gotten this far so quick if he didn´t have some talent. Schmidt is not going to be the Perry Presidential campaign media consultant. In 2004 he ran the Bush reelection War Room. He´s not a dunce. Sometimes you hire people for a specific expertise.

If Schmidt backstabbed Palin, then Palin backstabbed Perry while he was running for president by accusing him, in September 2011, of being a "crony capitalist." Yes, I can provide numerous citations, but it´s a really easy Google.

This knee-jerk "He just lost me!" stuff is tiresome. Let´s see...we wrote off Paul Ryan yesterday, and Perry´s goose is now cooked. Who will we toss overboard tomorrow?

Watch. Pretty soon, Rick Perry will be so tongue tied he won´t be able to speak off-the-cuff. The same thing happened to Romney by two-three months into the campaign, Mitt Romney was so stiff and afraid to speak it was almost funny if it hadn´t been so sad. It didn´t take long before Romney was telling us (as did McCain) that BHO was a really good guy, yada, yada, yada.

There´s nothing to be surprised about if you´ve been paying attention to Perry longer than the current Rosemary Lehmberg tour de force.
Does no one remember his remarks during that debate from the previous campaign? You know, the one where he let his pro-amnesty views slip out?
Is the Guard actually finally ON the border now. How long did he sit on his hands before he took any action at all?

This is peanuts. Rick Perry hired Henry Barbour to advise him on his 2016 presidential run. Reported Aug. 6, 2014 by AP. Most here have heard of Mississippi. Barbour is an even bigger deal-breaker than Schmidt for those who needed one.

I suspect most GOPers (and most voters) have no idea who Steve Schmidt is or why they are supposed to hate him. Schmidt is actually a PR smart guy and Perry´s move is just as smart.

Here is President Barack Obama´s challenge: how to unleash the dogs of war without having them run wild. This dilemma applies to both the political and policy considerations Obama faces, as he expands US military action in Iraq (and possibly Syria) to counter ISIS, the militant and murderous outfit that now calls itself the Islamic State and controls territory in northern Iraq and eastern Syria. (Snip) But whatever he calls it, the president is attempting a difficult feat: waging a nuanced war.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who has three felony convictions relating to assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols. Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner.

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week.
