Re: Rick Perry GOP Nominee After All?

I get the feeling when I hear Rick Perry speak that he's not that bright. I probably never would have voted for him.

All my chips are on Rick Santorum's table. Somebody has to take Mittens down, before he destroys the party's only chance at stopping four more years of the Obamanation. If Mittens wins the nomination Obama wins the presidency by default, mark my words. The GOP cannot win against Obama without an energized base, Romney is succeeding in sucking the life out of that base.

You probably only get the impression that the media has put out there about Perry. You try and govern the second largest economy in the nation and get back with me. lol And Texas may be set up to run like a well oiled machine, but you have to govern well to maintain it. Perry can say to Obama, "I was ALSO handed the Bush economy."

Erick Erickson (Red State) said he is voting for Perry on Super Tuesday and I know a whole lot of other people doing the same.

"Here’s the long and the short of it — Super Tuesday approaches. I live in Georgia. And I am pretty sure I am voting for either Herman Cain or Rick Perry because I am just not sold on the final four." - Erick Erickson

The GOP Establishment needs to learn not to force candidates on us, i.e., Romney.

I'm not saying the man probably was a good governor or that he's not brilliant in his own way.

I'm just saying hearing him talk makes me feel like I've lost braincells sometimes. Could just be me. However, he did do a pretty good job in Texas. I'll give him that.

I know what you are saying. He's really down to earth and not a practiced politician, verbally, like Romney. But, really, I'm sick of all of that. I want someone who is real. I would even take Gingrich. At least he answers your questions whether you like the answers or not. And since they are all flawed candidates, I want someone who can effect change. Newt is the only one that can do that. If Perry endorses Newt, then I will too. He has asked us to support Newt.

I was against him being married several times, but when he answered John King in the SC debate saying, "Everyone here (pointing to audience) has experienced some amount of pain in their lives." - words to effect, I changed how I felt about it. So, Romney will be forced on us, but I am for Newt.

Romney certainly isn't engerizing me.

Re: Rick Perry GOP Nominee After All?

My family is backing Rich Santorum in the race this time. We have followed him and Newt for since the 1990s. We have also had our eyes on Romney and the others. We have determined Santorum is the only candidate right now that we can support. The flaws of the others are too great to overcome when we have a strong conservative that we can support.

Romney is Bob Dole the Second. Another moderate that the Left desperately wants (and refuses to criticize during the primaries) because they KNOW he can't win.

I only heard Bob Dole give one line that I thought was actually worth anything when he debated Bill Clinton. "Are you better off now than you were four years ago?" He then followed it up by naming a list of dictators who were better of in 96 over 92. The only thing that came close to being inspired.

Re: Rick Perry GOP Nominee After All?

I am so tired of the Republicans this year. Good grief, their idiocy seems endless.
