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.

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?

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.

Denver - Seven months after Colorado legalized recreational pot, the state has an unexpected problem. It needs to grow more. Because even though sales have surged, only about 60% of the marijuana sold is the legal variety. The rest is either illegal or grown unregulated in the so-called gray market, where unlicensed citizens can grow for their own use.

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton.

On Monday, the 50-year-old politician was photographed by paparazzi looking fresh-faced without any cosmetics on. But instead of getting mad about the slyly snapped no-makeup shots, the former Alaska governor took to Facebook to joke about the incident. "Feel bad for the poor paparazzi hounding outside my truck this morning hoping to capture a tabloid ‘exclusive´ of me coming out of Bikram Hot Yoga.
