Texans for Rick Perry has compiled a reel of the governor’s past campaign ads, including a couple from his 1990s runs for agriculture commissioner. “Sometimes your instincts tell you when a man is right for the job,” the narrator says in one commercial showing Perry in a variety of active poses, including saddling a horse with a lasso in hand. Another features his visit to a sausage factory and brands him “A Texas Natural.”

Karl Rove appeared on Fox News this morning, where he outlined Herman Cain’s “misstatements” on a small dry erase board — among them, his comments on neoconservatives, abortion, and Afghan policy — and suggested he may not be “up to this task” of running for president.
Rove also criticized Rick Perry, who he said had “semi-aligned” himself with the “birther” movement in an interview with Parade magazine that was published over the weekend.
