Fox Business’ Charlie Gasparino: Rick Perry’s ‘Texas Taint’ Stops Him From Winning Presidency

Many conservatives and Tea Party activists across the country are eagerly anticipating the entry of Texas Governor Rick Perry into the race for the Republican presidential nomination. Yet Fox Business correspondent Charlie Gasparino suggests that many New Yorkers on Wall Street, presumably of both political parties, are not at all excited about the possibility of a Perry presidency.

Gasparino warns:

“I talk to a lot of Wall Street guys . . . you know I don’t think a guy from Texas can win again. I just think there’s a Texas taint to it all. And I know the big money on the street in New York, I don’t think they’re going to go for a Texan.”

Instead, Gasparino reveals many on Wall Street are preparing for a match-up between President Obama and Mitt Romney. Apparently the “taint” of Obamacare, Romneycare or anything else stinking up these two would wash off much more easily than Wall Street’s enduring fear of anything affiliated with Texas.
