Texas, Aug 9 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Texas governor Rick Perry is expected to announce at the weekend that he intends to run on the ticket of the GOP for the 2012 Presidential race. Perry is currently enjoying widespread support and some analysts say he is riding on the fear of several Americans that the US economy is heading back to recession.

Perry last weekend organized a prayer session for the US economy. He explained that the move is intended to seek God’s intervention in the affairs of the country. He also said the prayer was meant to ask for forgiveness of sins for the country.

What is on Perry’s side is his record of winning elections. He won one of such elections with Chris Bell five years ago. Bell told reporters that, “He’s the luckiest politician that ever walked the face of the Earth. Luck has a lot to do with success in politics – good timing, right circumstances, all play in to the likelihood of success and he has been very opportunistic throughout the past couple of decades and it has served him well.”

Perry is one of the most hated figures of the Democrats. Shortly after chairing Al Gore’s 1988 Presidential campaign, he crossed the carpet and joined the Republicans. Many Democrats have not forgiven him for that.
