    This is Liberal code for he is to conservative, what is to conservative anyway? Wanting to follow the constitution? Not wanting the country to spend more than it takes in? Believing in states rights? Not a top heavy dictatorial big goverment that wants to tell you which light bulb to use or how much water can flow through your toilet. If thats the case then I'm out there too.

    The fact is the Obama presidency is a complete disaster, he is making Jimmy Carter look pretty good right now whether the far left wants to admit it or not..... its a joke.... a bad joke thats on us.

    Personally I think an unamed Republican with a brown paper bag over his head could beat this president right now.

    This is Liberal code
    Um, I'm not a liberal.

    he is to conservative
    Conservatism isn't a linear scale so this doesn't make any sense. One can be conservative and still believe in basic science, for example, unlike Perry.

    I don't.

    And stop kidding yourselves, kiddies. Perry isn't conservative. He started acting like a conservative because he rightly thought it would advance his cause, i.e., Rick Perry. Just as a for example, Perry was incredibly weak on immigration control just five years ago. He's flip flopped 180 degrees to pick up Tea Party support.

    Perry - Bachmann - Palin debate. I'd pay money to see that. Imagine being a campaign manager for any one of the three and trying to prepare your candidate. There is no way in hell anyone can predict anything any of three might say. Everything these three say comes out of their ass.

    Perry's team: Governor, you've got to know that Half Governor Palin is going to say that she worked really, really hard as governor and that she knows a thing or two about how to get things going for America because by golly Americans want freedom and America wants a job and America is really, really behind what is right and good.

    Perry: Dammit! That's what I was going to say!

    Bacmann's Team: You have to face facts and be prepared. Palin is going to talk about the Founding Father's wishes for American freedom to continue as Jesus wanted and that America is a Christian nation that loves God, except for atheists, homosexurals, blacks, mescals, liberals and communists and Muslims, which is pretty much the people who hate America.

    Bachman: I was going to say that. That's not fair. I'll say it first, then I'll steal her major points.

    Palin's team: Governor, we really need to work on your knowledge base for Africa. To start, "We want to see a united Libya". Libya. Lib-ya. It's not Labia, Governor. It's important that you say it correctly. People don't want to hear you talk about how important Labia is to you.

    Palin: Screw Labia, OK. Get me an endorsement from the President of South Africa. What's that guy's name again? Freeman, Morgan Freeman. Get me President Freeman's endorsement.

    Actually, Perry isn't a real Conservative at all, and I strongly believe that he is going to get his ass handed to him by other Republicans before the nomination is made. Perry added taxes on cigarettes, signed an executive order to force all schoolgirls to be vaccinated with a vaccine that had not been fully tested on humans (which the GOP-Controlled legislature overrode), supports the I-69 Corridor from Mexico to Canada, signed an executive order allowing Mexican trucks on Texas highways without having to get safety inspections, hired companies from Mexico and China to run Texas toll roads, sent an innocent man to the death chamber, then fired the forensic team that was investigating it, replacing them with political cronies who shut the investigation down, and let's not forget that he was Al Gore's campaign manager in 1988. This is just for starters. The only reason he became a Republican was for his own personal advancement. Rick Perry may talk a good talk, but people are not defined by what they say. They are defined by what they do, and Perry's record speaks for itself. My prediction is that Mitt Romney will win the nomination. Romney also has the best chance of knocking Obama off, but it's going to be a tall order.

    I think it's probably fair to say that over half the world's population wants to screw labia.
