Laugh all you want now, weep on election day. Math doesn't lie, and the math says any Democrat has an easier time of it than any Republican.

Do you have anything, anything at all, to show anything factual that the blue wall is going to crack and turn red anytime soon? Or do you think scorn is going to change any liberal minds?

Keep up the scorn, continue to lose the Presidency. Simple as that, and simple enough to show how low an IQ does go when scorn overcomes intelligence.

I was a strong Perry supporter 2 years ago and very disappointed in his debating skills. I like a lot of his ideas, but what he said last week doomed him. He will never go anywhere again other than into retirement. Anyone who makes a comment about homosexuality being like alcoholism and can be changed is through. Too often he says things that he regrets later on or regrets how he said them

I don't often agree with you Nita, but you nailed this one. He's toast.

I am sure Perry People have examined the Gov. Perry's Debating skills and the painful mistakes of the year.
Texas is a machine and would be a good model of growth for the country. Gov. Perry is real and I think you would make a great President.

Ms. Clinton to many has a plastic personality and if you look at it closely, no real accomplishments.


The choice is clear. 2 different views , so there is not confusing Perry and Clinton.

Hilary is smart, but she's not a great politician. She's nowhere near her husband or obama for example.

Many of her flaws were exposed in 08 Vs Barrack when she was supposed to be a "lock" for the White House

RP = Hoof in Mouth disease.

Any Democrat would beat him more handily than the way JM got beat, in 2008.

I think Condoleezza Rice might have a good chance.

I liked a lot of Perry's ideas too! If only I could remember what they were. oops.

Seriously, Rick Perry has never had an original thought in his life. If he did, he wouldn't have blundered into the oops moment.

Good, bad or otherwise, she has stated over and over she isn't into politics, she has never been a politician and might not make a very good President. But this is a moot point: she isn't running for anything. I can think of a lot of people I would love to see as President, but I know most of them have no intentions of running.

and you base this on what? You don't have to like him, obviously you do not, but would you like to tell us what President has based their campaigns on original ideas? Taking a combination of ideas and working with others is what is more important. As for bubbling the debates: 2 things, one, he was on heavy pain meds through the first few debates and 2, he is the first to admit and did very early on, he isn't a good debater. No one is good at everything.

Now, one idea I like of his is how he feels about kids who have lived here their entire lives almost being able to enroll in Texas colleges.
