Bullriding into the U.S. Presidential Race

Monday, August 15, 2011:  Wall Street Journal, OPINION

Bachman-Perry Overdrive

“The fight for the Republican Presidential nomination is finally getting underway in earnest, with Texas Governor Rick Perry bull-riding his way into the race and Michele Bachmann winning Saturday’s straw poll in  Iowa.” Mr. Perry was late entering the presidential race, but he “knows how to link job growth to Texas’s policies of low taxes, spending control and tort reform”  in the run for the Republican nomination.

Bull-riding is a rodeo sport which evolved from western ranch heritage in the U.S. and perhaps Spain’s heritage in the West.  It is dangerous and difficult.  I once saw a Brahma Bull jump over the fence and into the audience in the San Francisco, California Cow Palace.  However, that was unusual.  The bulls are fierce and difficult to ride.
