Republicans Concerned About Perry’s Appeal To Independents

rickperry_190Congressional Republicans are expressing concern that Rick Perry won’t appeal to independent voters, largely because of comments Perry has made about President Obama and Ben Bernanke.

“You can’t be calling Bernanke a traitor and you can’t be questioning whether or not Barack Obama loves America, that type of thing,” Rep. Peter King (R-NY), told POLITICO.

“Intimating the Federal Reserve Chairman is guilty of treason is not going to create more confidence in voters about you,” said Rep. Charlie Bass (R-NH). “I would suspect Gov. Perry regrets that statement.”

It’s a bit early to be worried about Perry’s appeal to independent voters.  Perry may have a problem just getting the Republican nomination, due to concern from conservative Republicans over his record on immigration and the Gardasil executive order.

Republicans ready to crown Perry as their nominee should hold off on the coronation.
