    Attack him all you want. He'll always be a better choice than Obama (or Hillary).

    I've got a hang nail on my left index finger that would do a better job than Obama. And Hillary is just continuation of the same ol same ol.

    Im not going to argue for Obama, but Perry is a complete fucking wackjob. Anyone who actually wants that zealot running the country should have their head examined.

    I doubt he's really a zealot, he's just playing to a particular group of voters who are important in a primary.

    I really don't know much about the guy other than he's been the governor of the 2nd largest state in the union for over 11 years.

    I'd prefer if Texans were not eligible to run for POTUS, as after Little Barry, W & LBJ are two of the three worst POTUS since WWII

    Pandering to a certain group is one thing. Setting up an christian only "pray for our country" rally in an arena is zealotry.

    Didn't Little Barry just have a muslim dinner thing at the White House - that seems a lot more zealotry & divisive than some dumb prayer at the Astrodome

    He's a power hungry Jesus peddler. Horrible candidate. But economic freedom is the only thing I care about at this point, so if he commits to vetoing any bill that increases taxes and supports getting rid of some of Obama's regulations in healthcare and finance, he probably has my vote this one time. I just don't see anyone better with an actual chance to win.

    But "Little Barry" isnt Muslim. Again, Im not arguing for or against Obama, he is in office so get over it. This is about the right wing religious nutjob that has thrown his hat into the ring. Maybe he will try to pick up Bachmann and it will be the ticket from hell.

    Apparently every president does this. Like Fletcher I'm not defending Obama here, but it's not like he's the first president to have Muslims in the white house. I think Rick Perry is a far right wing religious nut job that I wouldn't want even close to running this country. I think it's all pointless anyway cause he doesn't have a shot in hell of winning. I think it's going to be Mitt Romney anyway.
