While a number of capable GOP presidential contenders have entered the race, a scholar and political pundit believes one candidate would be most feared by President Obama in the 2012 election.

Dr. Merrill Matthews, resident scholar of the Institute for Policy Innovation (IPI), contends Texas Governor Rick Perry could give Obama the most problems in the upcoming general election. In his column on, Matthews says Perry is the only one who can devastate virtually any Obama claim.

“Rick Perry actually takes away the one argument that President Obama uses all the time, which is he likes to claim, ‘I inherited a terrible economy from George Bush, and that has been the problem.’ Well, Rick Perry also inherited an economy from George Bush,” the scholar points out. He is “the only other elected official to be able to say that, and he’s never whined about it; he, in fact, has done very well with Texas.”
And Matthews uses a football analogy to drive home his point: “It isn’t who hands you the ball, but what you do with it once you’ve got it.”
