A vote for Perry is a vote for domestic terrorism.

Granted, it looks like Perry is the emotive, physical type and probably pushy, but it's all speculation at this point as to what was going on. Perry holding Paul's arm in place looks bullying and disrespectful.
yes, and Paul is too much of a gentleman to say a word about this. It is obvious that Perry was not happy with Ron Paul, he can't argue the facts, so all that's left is ridicule and intimidation. A common tactic of the left. Screw Perry.

Are you serious bro? Imagine if Obama did that to a Republican, you'd probably be crying hysterically. Yet when it's your man doing it, we should "wait for all the facts." Give me a damn break. Perry's a windbag, wannabe bully. When he drops out from the race it will be good for all of us.

I admire politicians who are tough guys, but not bullies or lunatics. Obama's not tough, but he's also not a bully nor a lunatic.

Perry is a bully and a lunatic. Paul's just a lunatic.

I've been involved in many board room meetings full of conflict and confrontation that would make those pictures look like Perry and Paul playing patty cake.

Get some spine people.
Would be singing the same tune if this was "union thug" "intimidating" some innocent right winger? Surely you wouldn't complain then, just grow some spine right?

It would seem Perry likes to attempt to bully older men and little girls (see Perry forces 12 yr. old girls to get gardisil vaccinations by executive mandate). Some people would like to trade one bully for another, Obama for Perry. Both globalists, both pro-large government, both open borders endorsers, both Builderburger Group attendees.

Me, I'd just like to trade our current student dictator for a POTUS with a record of upholding the US Constitution without fail (see Ron Paul's unwaivering record). I think Ron Paul is tough enough to handle anything Perry throws at thim. Don't mistake Paul's being a gentleman for being weak or cowardly. He did serve as a flight surgeon during the Vietnam War/Conflict and has had the bravery to stand alone to support the US Constitution through 30 years of voting.

Fail.
If you admire anything, you've yet to give example.

Fail. If that was true, Brutus the convict who weighs 6'6" and 300 lbs. with 10% body fat would be the president of the United States.

Perry is a coward because I've never seen him do that with a private citizen who could physically assault him for doing what he did.

He isn't grabbing his wrist, he has his hand resting on Paul's wrist... Twisting the truth again...

Before he edged him off his own podium and made ape like gestures.
