    I thought Rick Perry promised not to run for President, if he was elected for Governor of Texas, in 2010.

    I like Perry, but he's doomed. All Obama has to do is accuse him of being a carbon-copy of 'W', and he's finished.

    Right, the so-called Texas miracle was a mirage created because Texas does two-year budgets. And over half of Texas' job growth consisted of new government jobs.

    None of these links mention government jobs. The first one refers to government getting out of the way so businesses can prosper. This is the platform Rick Perry will run on.

    Hmmm I wonder why The Heritage Foundation, Fox News and some blog don't want to look under the hood.

    He obviously committed welfare fraud or something, being a liberal and rich... all liberals are parasites and socialists...

    I'm more worried about left leaning ideological views on fiscal and governmental issues more than I am about than I am far right leaning ideological views on social issues.

    On my first quick look at Perry there's not a chance in hell I support him in the primaries. However, at this point I'd possibly grudgingly vote for him in the general against election unless he does something during the race so objectionable I couldn't even vote for him in principle, in which case I'd be voting 3rd party or staying home.

    While there's no way I'm voting for Obama in 2012 after what we've seen of him that doesn't guarantee I'll vote for whatever Trash the Republicans throw out.
