Rick Perry, just another candidate force-fed to you by the media. The sheepies will vote for either him or Obama, thinking they are actually making a choice.

I believe Perry or Romney have the best chances of winning against Obama. Maybe Palin, but it doesn't look like she will run.

What are your conclusions about this? Mine are:

* Badmouthing by the media seems to have a reverse effect, at least on the GOP candidates. When people were asking for Ron Paul to receive more coverage by the media, they should have specified negative coverage.

* People will continue to suspect Perry is the flavor of the month, and that's fine. Maybe it will turn out to be true, we'll see after the debates. But what does it say about the other GOP candidates, who seem to fall as Rick Perry's number goes up (none of the other GOP hopefuls even tie with the president in this poll)? It's got to be somewhat disconcerting that the others could so easily slide. Their support does not seem to be very solid.
My conclusion is that polls are ridiculous and there's a lot of ignorant sheep in America.

Whenever someone doesn't follow the POV of certain posters, they are sheep, sheepies, sheeple. I wonder of those posters ever consider they themselves might be the sheep?

Perry's book should give pause to any Republican considering supporting him for the nomination. It's quite damning.

I would love for Perry to win as Obama would trounce him, however, Perry is a horrible debater. Romney is stiff, so Perry might have a pretty good chance.

I still stand by my opinion that the candidate that can beat Obama in 2012 has yet to be found, if such a candidate exists.

"Great president?" Where? It sure ain't the current one!

This might be hard for you to accept, but the attention Perry is getting is from those who supported him before the media got into the picture. In fact the media is not in love with him. Now, Obama was pushed down the throats of many by the media 3 and 4 years ago. He was just anothing senator that didn't even vote 1/2 the time.

Romney could still win it for the GOP once the media digs deeper into this.

Wait to the Country gets to know the Pink Cowboy. He is going to fall like a rock.
Lol, the left is in full fledged panic mode. They are starting their smear campaign early tis cycle. Too funny!
