Pataki, Perry Headline “The Real Economic State of the Union”

PatakiFrom The New York Post,

Pataki announced Thursday he has formed a super PAC to explore a presidential bid.

Perry, who says he’ll decide whether he’ll run for president by June, spoke to a group of power players at the dinner dubbed “The Real Economic State of the Union,” hosted by John Catsimatidis, CNBC’s Larry Kudlow and economist Stephen Moore, who explained that they, along with Art Laffer and Steve Forbes, are forming the Committee to Unleash American Prosperity to showcase GOP stars and discuss the economy.

Pataki had harsh words for Mayor Bill de Blasio, saying, “We have a rotten mayor in this city, he is flat-out awful,” and criticized President Obama as “living in some fantasy world.” He added, “I was the governor on Sept. 11, and I saw the consequences of us not being willing to confront and realize the nature of the threat . . . I honestly believe we are at greater risk of an attack today than we have been at any time since Sept. 11.”
