Four years ago, Rick Perry’s campaign for the GOP presidential nomination got off to a high-profile start and then imploded. Now the man best known nationwide for his “Oops” moment and his cowboy boots is asking America for a second chance, announcing a new bid for the White House on Thursday afternoon at a military star-studded event at an airfield north of Dallas.

Perry, the longest-serving governor of Texas, has revamped his strategy since his disastrous exit from the last race. Since leaving the governor’s mansion in January, he has boned up on foreign and domestic policy with a rotating team of advisers. He no longer wears his signature cowboy boots, which exacerbate the back problems that dogged him in 2012, and he has started sporting black-framed “hipster” glasses that lend him some gravitas. His advisers say his loss taught him humility that will fuel his comeback. But so far, Perry has been dogged by low poll numbers that suggest the GOP base is still skeptical.

Part of the governor’s strategy to win over the skeptics is to emphasize his experience in the military and his support for veterans. “Lone Survivor” Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell and Taya Kyle, the widow of “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle, are set to join the governor when he will announce his second run for the presidency in Addison, Texas. (The Perry team debuted a new “Perry for President” seal early Thursday morning on his campaign website.) The venue and special guests will allow Perry to highlight his own stint in the Air Force in the 1970s, when he piloted cargo planes and participated in several humanitarian missions abroad. Perry is one of just two presumptive GOP candidates to have served in the military (the other is Sen. Lindsey Graham), and he has touted this experience over the past year as a way to distinguish himself in the crowded Republican field.

Perry swaggered into the 2012 race looking strong for the GOP nomination before his campaign crashed and burned, in part because his rivals jumped on his support for in-state tuition for the children of unauthorized immigrants and painted him as soft on illegal immigration. Then, the death blow: In the middle of a November debate, Perry set off a cringe bomb when he couldn’t name the third federal agency he promised to eliminate if elected president.

“I can’t, the third one. I can’t. Sorry. Oops,” he said.

Isn't there still A decent chance he's going to jail?

No.  There's less "evidence" against him, than there was against Chris Christie.  It was mainly a party politics thing from what I remember.

If Rick can't perform at an at least C-minus level in the debates, it won't matter how many SEALs are flanking him.

He's ditching the cowboy boots but is he going to dust off his Carhart jacket for another creepy anti-gay ad?

He wears hipster glasses now.  I bet that will make him a better candidate.

Although she's already married to someone as equally batchit crazy.

Sadly, this twat waffle appeals to a lot of people.  I had a discussion with a guy a few months ago who thinks Perry would have been an all time great president.
He also preached how Romney would have been exactly the same as Obama.

Romney's too left for the tea brainers.  So is Jeb.  That's why I'm hoping he wins.

I have been and always will be a Romney guy.  Imagine a person in the oval office who is actually brilliant.  I don't want a president I can relate to. have a beer with, etc.  I got friends, I want a president who doesn't think like the average ham and egger. 

I am all set with Jeb.  All set with pretty much every candidate in the field at present.  It's sad really.
