PERRY ON THE MEND

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

The New York Times would like noth­ing bet­ter than to fo­ment ill will be­tween for­mer Pres­i­dent Ge­orge W. Bush and Texas Gov. Rick Perry. The pa­per is busy con­nect­ing the dis­cord dots be­tween the pair, im­ply­ing that they dis­agree on pol­icy is­sues, and that Mr. Perry could in­cur the wrath of de­voted, pow­er­ful Bushies should he run for pres­i­dent. Yeah, yeah. Blah blah blah.

But for­get all that. In­side the Belt­way would like to send Mr. Perry well wishes. He had back surgery last week — nerve de­com­pres­sion and a “mi­nor fu­sion” — and is now re­cov­er­ing at home.

“Ac­cord­ing to our ‘first nurse’ — first lady Anita Perry — the gov­er­nor’s re­cov­ery is go­ing very well,” says his spokesman Mark Miner.
