    How's that going down?

    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.

    Because race and profession are so analogous....


    Good lord this has to be one of the most silly posts in a long time.

    Except one of those things is relevant to the job of president. Stop digging the hole deeper...

    Nobody chooses to be black. People choose to be Republicans.

    Irrelevant.

    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.

    This argument is absolutely ludicrous.

    No ones discounting Cain for example just because he's black and Obamas a screw up (opinion).

    I'm sure you'll have a long winded rebuttle for what I just said... but oh well, as Redress said you'll just be digging the hole deeper.

    Or, because Bush was a conservative with a similar background to Perry and similar positions on issues, they might be similar...HOLY COW, that actually makes sense and follows logically!

    Growing up black doesn't impart common culture into black people? Race is a suite of attributes, just like philosophy is a suite of positions. Not every person in a racial group has the same distribution of attributes and not every person who adheres to a world view has the same distribution of positions.
