The Perry lovers agree with his policies and ideas, so yes they will back him all the way to the bitter end, which is what they will get if they trot Perry out as the alternative. Unbelieveable that anyone would want this snakeoil salesman running this Great Nation, but then again there is no shortage of stupid when it comes to some voting blocks.

Again, did you even address and debate one issue where Perry is proven to be a bad candidate...no you didn't. Which proves the point that I made in the OP. Thank you.

The same could be said of those that supported Obama and still do. The more that was brought out about the true candidate Obama and how far to the left he actually was, the better he did with his supporters. This election might shape up the same, just in the other direction.

By the right wing fundamentalists, I must help you add. But this is about Perry and his disgusting behavior. I see you condone such action because he is your kind of politician.

Such Deep thinking, exactly what many of us have come to expect from the far right these days, thanks for not failing to provide more of the same.

Thinking is unnecessary for those whose choices depend on others' opinion.

Casper, I have been around Texas since the mid 80s. I know Mr. Hightower by his work. Why does one need to "think deep" when it comes to something you know, and have known for the better part of 25 years?

Unless of course we are using the term "Deep thinking" as code words for "they arent liberal so they are stupid"?

Is that what we are doing?

Mr. Hightower is a known quantity in Texas. He is kind of like Blue Bell Ice Cream in the since that we all know what he is. the difference is he is full of a very different bovine by-product.

LOL so now i am just an idiot who depends on others opinion? Unlike the OP who just provided a link to some rant by Jim Hightower a known Texas Prog ranter...

Yea that's it. Im just living on others opinions. I dont actually live in Texas. I have not been here since highschool. Im not raising kids down here in Texas...


NOOOO Im just some dumb southerner clinging to my AK-47 and while thumping my bible and listening to the radio for my marching orders.


real bright there Einstein.

You totally invalidate your post with this ridiculous remark. Obama has lost support with factions of his base for his moving way too far right to appease the radical right wing.

He would have allowed "The Bush Tax Cuts for The Rich" to expire and he would have pushed harder for "The Public Option", among other things, if he was "far to the left". Anyone that is not as radical and religion based as people like Perry are considered too far left by the wingnuts.
