EDITOR'S NOTE: Watch "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer" at 6 p.m. ET for Wolf's interview with former Pakistani President Musharraf.
(CNN) – During an interview with me that we just taped for The Situation Room, former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf told me he believes Texas Gov. Rick Perry will run for president of the United States.
That's significant because the two men met in Austin last week.
Watch The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer weekdays at 4pm to 6pm ET and Saturdays at 6pm ET. For the latest from The Situation Room click here.
We don't want or need the opinion of "the former harborer of terror leader" Musharaff.
...[yawn]... Too much, I suppose, to suggest that Musharraf keep his nose in his own country's business? Pakistan isn't exactly enjoying American favoritism to date ... ranking right up there with Musharraf opinions on a scale of *don't care* to *really don't care*.
well Perry there's your major endorsement right there. I wonder how that will go over with the Tea party bunch.
And with Musharraf's endorsement, Perry will get over the hump for victory (in his own delusional mind).
Seriously, though, Perry is a disaster that would make current WPE GWB look like Abe Lincoln. Perry has completely blown a hole in his state's budget (over $26 BILLION). Perry is so insanely stupd he shouldn't be allowed near a butter knife, let alone government.
Who gives a hoot what Mush-mouse thinks?!! How are his views relevant here???
Does this mean Perry will resign as Texas Governor?
G.W.Bush “"truly is somebody who believes in democracy." about Pervez Musharraf
Donald Rumsfeld “I preferred the Musharraf government.” And this also “"I think Musharraf, when he made the decision to cooperate with us, took a bold step.”
Pervez Musharraf got those credit keeping Osama Bin Laden under his eye
Now its not surprise why Pervez Musharraf like Rick Perry to run
Simple Money and power
Like I've said before about this: its one ruthless dictator giving his opinion/support of another one. Maybe Perry has taken notes on how to eliminate/ assassinate your opponants.
Christian Madrassas, anyone?
Maybe Perry agreed to keep sending him money to harbor the terrorists and keep them hidden from us.
ConservaFASCISTS: Did you mean: mysoginist? Because he sure as heck came across as one, and a bully to boot.
Why is CNN holding up the non-American as a credible commentator on an American election?
So Guv Goodhair wanted to establish his foreign policy credentials with this guy? Musharraf said Perry "invited him
to share views"– about what, the demise of Osama bin Ladin?
Goes to judgment folks, and the fact that this foreigner knows more about Perry's "intentions" before the American
people do, speaks volumes. Go run for President in Pakistan, Perry.
we really need another Texas governor to be president, though Perry can put together a sentence better than GW
I wonder how the country would feel if Obama mandated your teenage daughters get an HPV vaccine..........exactly, Perry is not electable and is a fraud, Texas Tea Partiers don't even like him.
A former democrat turned republican because in texas the republicans get most of the oil kickbacks, just ask old BP apologizing Joe Barton.
America has seen enough Texans as President, especially after the last two...
Rick Perry anywhere NEAR the White House would be a big mistake. Take it from a person that lives in Texas.
No more republican governors as president. Look at Wisconsin, NJ, MI, PA, OH, just to name a few that have become FASCIST governors.
In Pakistan, where Pervez Musharraf was president, Islam is THE state religion and sharia law applies.
Rick Perry has been 'called' to political office, and is going to hold a 'prayer rally' in a Houston stadium.
I think Perry dreams of US where his church is recognized as THE state religion.
He'is no Will Rogers, now that was a Cowboy. He was not a mean-spirted, egostical, racist.
LOL..and this connection to Musharraf just killed any notion of him getting the nod. – THANK YA!!
