Perry lacks all of the above.
Enough talk about the base. One of McCain's biggest mistakes long-term was kissing the base, kissing the base. If the Conservative base wants to vote for Obama over Ron Paul, they can go right ahead; the fight is for independents and moderates, and RP blows Perry out of the water on that.Originally Posted by Raw Hide
The only thing Perry has is the theocratic crowd, which is a sub-group of the base. He will lose horrifically against Obama, and I highly doubt get the nomination. He is a giant charading clown
This is really dumb. Of course experience and being articulate means something. Maybe not in the short-term fix, but if they're inarticulate and have little applicable experience they will be trumped as time goes on.Originally Posted by Raw Hide
Perry won't make it because there is no way he can realistically beat Obama
