    He is a perfect example for what don't like about some Texans.

    So I'm not too worried about his debate skills. She ain't no Barack Obama or Bill Clinton.



    You are off-topic. this thread isn't about Hillary Clinton, it's about Rick Perry, who will never be the president of the USA because there aren't enough stupid people in the USA to put him in the White House.

    I would normally be befuddled by your opinion, but if this administration has shown me anything it is that Dem supporters denial is only rivaled by their delusions.

    Hillary is damaged goods and if she jumps into the fray she will get the Dem nom.

    and oh what fun we will have when she does...

    I agree. Hillary will not win. Too many white men hate her and too many married white women REALLY hate her.

    Blacks and Mexicans won't come out in huge majorities for her like they did Obama.


    One problem Hillary has too is that a lot of Mexican men and black men have a "Not gonna vote for some old white woman" complex. That's really gonna hurt Hillary because maybe she can get black and latina women to vote for her but no way can she get black and mexican men to vote for her. They'll stay home.

Most people dont know who he really is and when they get to see him, the way he acts, and the inconsistencies in his record.. well. I mean I can already see one ad running where you have the face of Rick Perry complaining that Texas is not getting enough federal help to fight wild fires, and clip over to the Texas budget where they cut funding of... fighting wildfires.

    Rick Perry is a disaster waiting to happen. Not even sure he could win a primary run due to the radical Tea Party freaks. He would have to go to the extreme right, and then pivot back big time to nearer the center to even have a chance. The Independents would run away screaming, and even moderate Republicans.

    Could you imagine him running on an anti-abortion, anti-gay, pro more gun platform?

    And then there is of course the rumor that has been floating around for decades.. that he is in fact gay, which aint a problem for the left per say, but on the right?
