I saw his announcement.... you know who he reminded me of? Bush... why? The way he talks and sounds lol, at first I thought it was Bush.
Plus Perry does not stand a chance... most Republicans dont know the man, and when they learn he use to support Al Gore, thinks he is a prophet, and that a majority of the so called Texas job miracle are in fact government jobs, then well... and then there is the gay rumour that has haunted him for 20+ years.
Bush's sins are being visited upon Perry. Because Bush upset liberals, it must follow, think liberals, that Perry will do the same.
Obama's sins are being visited on a future black presidential contender. Because Obama is a screw-up, it must follow, think liberals, that a future black presidential contender will suffer from the same tendency to be a screw-up.
In neither case is the individual judged on his merits. In both cases they are tarred with the brush of group identity.
