    If enough people want him, he is legitimate.

    But that does not make him good for America.


    Frankly, every popular candidate from both parties seems worse then useless to me...other then maybe Rand Paul (though, IMO, he is just a watered-down, compromising version of his father...in other words, not nearly as good).

    I wouldn't vote for him, but he could win the GOP nomination.
    He's perceived as soft-on-immigration by the base, but most other contenders are, too.
    I think these candidates should just be themselves and let the chips fall where they may.
    As I recall, one of Perry's 2012 gaffes involved shutting down unnecessary gov't agencies.
    He then forgot which agencies he wanted to close.
    His attempt at being something he wasn't---anti-big-gummint---backfired.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    If i had my druthers it would be a CHOICE of someone whose last name doesn't start with the letter C or a B.WELL...if the B is preceded by a Joe MIGHT get my vote.

    Standing up for Texas takes literally no effort at all.

    You would have to be willfully ignorant NOT to see the great success that is Texas.

    Especially when you contrast it with another Border state with a comparable population.

    California.....there's no better example of the failure of lefts politicies on a State level than California.

    I mean what possible and legitimate criticism could you level toward Texas ?

    The best YOU could do was troll.

    The choice was worded specifically.

    I don't think Joey Buttafuoco has much of a chance to be honest....

    He could not win the presidency, the GOP needs to field a much more socially liberal candidate which Romney could have filled in the last election.

    There were Republicans who voted for a Republican candidate the last two elections and had their candidate lose. With that, perhaps they should vote another party.

    Hell no, if he ran as a democrat maybe. That dude is far too liberal to be a conservative president. He is far from a conservative governor.
