GOP consultant Alex Castellanos dumped all over Gov. Rick Perry this morning on NBC's Meet the Press, calling him "Sarah Palin with a skirt" and a lesser version of George W. Bush - and not in a good way.
"He has some challenges. One of them is that people think he's a little bit of a coffee table book. He's kind of Sarah Palin with a skirt. Not a substantive candidate," Castellanos said when host David Gregory asked if Perry could give the current front-runner, Mitt Romney, a run for his money.
Castellanos - who has advised Romney and in 2006, worked for Perry challenger Carole Keeton Strayhorn -- said Perry could get support from conservatives "but only for a while.... He's the candidate of jobs and growth, but Republicans don't think that governors and governments create them [jobs]. They think businessmen do. He's running against businessmen. And he echoes the last campaign, which I think we lost. Which was, you know, Obama ran against George Bush and, in many ways, Perry's just a lighter copy."
