    Perry


    Two articles from a right leaning site...drudge on Perry early perceptions...Of course EARLY is the key word...They are trying to compare perry to bush...not going to happen in my mind.....Perry has alot of baggage...People dont take well to flippers...democrat to gop and vice versa...

    I think Perry could beat Obama.

    I hope the GOP is stupid enough to pick Perry or Bachman. Obama would beat both of them.

    So far the only candidate that stands a chance against Obama is Romney and the radical evangelical base will never support him, so the GOP is screwed.

    Personally, the only GOP candidate that I could stomach would be Huntsman, but he is way too moderate and reasonable to get the GOP nomination.

    I'm not so sure that you're being completely honest. I suspect that you'll find a way to continue living if some other Republican wins the White House.

    Take solace by knowing that I'm managing to survive even with a total loser sitting in the White House right now. Sure, he's ruining the country but there is always a tomorrow to look forward to, a tomorrow with Obama replaced by a Republican.

    You'll find a way to cope with President Palin's 8 year term of office. So don't despair.

    Rick Perry is a much stronger candidate. I am worried about his candidacy. He seems to have all the ingredients necessary for a successful campaign. Obama is in for a very tough campaign if Rick Perry is the nominee...especially if the economy is as bad next year as it is now.
    I would agree with you that Perry will win the nomination, but I think he will lose the general election, for the same reason Bachmann would, but I also agree it would be a closer race.

    Not a chance. Obama's record is too strong. The GOP cannot compete against a booming economy/record job growth....

    We need to establish a sarcasm font.

    I think Perry stands a great chance of beating Obama. The proof is that Texas is one of the least hurt states in the nation with these policies. From an executive standpoint, his track record is showing that he's done a great job.

    Is he a gun-totin' archconservative? Yeah, I see shades of that in him, and it's not pleasing me greatly. However, his ability to un-do all of Obama's crap can be surmised with one phrase - the proof is in the pudding.
