Will Perry answer the 'call'?

Austin, TX (CNN) – Rick Perry may have gotten the sign he's been waiting for.

Standing on the sidelines in the race for 2012, the Texas governor on Monday visited a video game manufacturer in Austin where designers came up with a unique way to get the potential Republican candidate on the playing field.

On a jumbo screen inside the offices of a division of EA Sports, a scene from one of the company's popular college football video game was playing out, featuring Perry as quarterback for his alma-mater, Texas A&M.

In the scene, Perry throws a touchdown before a stadium full of cheering fans.

As Perry left the room, a reporter shouted, "hey Governor, are you in the game?"

It was a reference to EA's catch-phrase "if it's in the game, it's in the game."

The Governor did not respond and hustled off the stage.

It won't be that easy in the full contact sport of Presidential politics.

Over the weekend, Perry stoked more speculation about his future plans after telling the DesMoines Register in an interview that he felt "called" to run.

"This is what America needs," Perry said in the interview.

    Perry? Do we need another globalist stooge in this race? Perry, who mandated all 12-year old girls in TX be shot up with deadly Gardasil thanks to his ties with Merck? Perry, who spearheaded the Trans-Texas Corridor (NAFTA Superhighway) in stealing land from Americans to hand over to foreign corporations? Perry, who killed the TSA anti-groping bill on behalf of his elite buddies in the U.S. Justice Department? Please. Just because a guy can tell which way the wind's blowing so he starts wearing cowboy hats and talking 'secession' doesn't mean he's a constitutionalist. There are far better options already in the race. Think GOP candidates from Texas and you might run across one who not only talks like Perry but, unlike the governor, has a 30-year record to back up the rhetoric.

    I sure hope he doesn't run . I wouldn't vote for a guy who wants his state to secede from the federal govenment. He is too radical for me!
