It’s June of 2011 and Rick Perry is thinking about running for president.  But in June of last year, during an interview on Lubbock’s First News on KFYO, it appeared that he had already made up his mind, and the answer then was “no”.

“The only time I want to seek the White House is when I get invited up there for an event where I can go represent Texas,” Perry said.  “I have no interest in going to the White House in other form or fashion. “

That was a year ago, and in politics, that’s an eternity.
