    Perry and Paul: Texas-Sized Feud?

    It doesn't look like their happy with each other.



    Perry and Paul: Texas-Sized Feud? - ABC News


    While political pundits spent the day dissecting the on-camera debate performances of the GOP field Wednesday night, an off-camera moment between Rep. Ron Paul and Gov. Rick Perry has gotten just as much attention.

    During one of the debateís commercial breaks, an Associated Press photographer snapped a photo of a stern-looking Perry grabbing the arm of a startled Paul as he wagged his index finger in Paulís face.

    Perry must have an invisible arm cause I don't see any finger wagging.

    That picture doesn't show any finger wagging or arm grabbing, not that it didn't happen, but the photographer missed it if it did.

    So, Texas sized feud? Hardly. Paul's odds of getting the nomination stand somewhere below those of a snowball on the streets of Phoenix in the middle of August making it through the afternoon.

    What is unsettling is that Perry could actually get the nomination.

    Much better. Fodder for speculation.

    Paul called Perry out for the RINO he is, and Perry didn't like it.

    Perry can take his 1.9 GPA and shove it up his ass.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    Yep, it's going to be tough for Perry to outrun his former Democrat status, especially since he once supported Al Gore.

    Prior to the mid-80's Texas was run by the Dems. They were mostly the conservative Dems and in large part flipped during that decade to turn the state red.

    Fully grasp the "old school" Dems mentality not the progressives they are today

    Don't read too much into that *switching* bull****
