    Perry had no chance at the nomination anyway. He wasn't going to win Iowa nor New Hampshire, and without them, he was toast. His appeal doesn't extend far beyond Texas which is why he bombed in 2012.

    He can SAY anything he wants.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Rick Perry has always been "challenged".
    And he has always been put into office by voters who are also "challenged".

    Wow, thats not saying much about Obama voters or Jerry Brown voters.

    At least Perry knows how to run a State, build a strong economy and build surplus's.

    Not really. He's been returned to office because the other candidates didn't earn as many votes. Let's see how well Wendy Davis does this fall.

    No kidding, that was the entire point of the indictment.

    Political theater. The indictment is utter BS. They must have convened a collection of idiots for this grand jury. Not a fan of the guy but he'll likely be acquitted but the true intent of the indictment will be successful.

    Let's wait and see where Perry is living in 2017.

    I predict that he'll never move into the White House.

    There aren't enough far-right homophobes in the USA to put Perry in the White House.
