    "Perry’s Popping-Off Problem

    The Republican candidate comes across well as consistent and sincere, but his quick-draw machismo will scare voters away.

    The Wall Street Journal: August 26, 2011

    Rick Perry this week roared away from the pack. Gallup had him the party favorite, with 29% of Republicans and Republican-leaning Independents saying they’re most likely to support him. Next came Mitt Romney with 17%, Ron Paul with 13%, and Michele Bachmann at 10%. All the rest were single digits except for “no preference,” which got 17%....

    ...Mr. Perry’s primary virtue for the Republican base is that he means it. He comes across as a natural conservative, Texas Division, who won’t be changing his mind about his basic premises any time soon. His professed views don’t seem to be an outfit he can put on and take off at will. In this of course he’s the anti-Romney. Unlike Ms. Bachmann, he has executive experience, three terms as governor of a state with 25 million people.

    His primary flaw appears to be a chesty, quick-draw machismo that might be right for an angry base but wrong for an antsy country. Americans want a president who feels their anger without himself walking around enraged..."

    Perry's problem may be that the dumbocrats are scared of him and they are going to spread all the crap they can think up to divide the voters.

    The only problem Perry will have is , not having enuff bug spray & barff bags during the debate. Oh I forgot-BS repellant. How about that solar company that just too 550 million of our money & flushed it down the toilet.

    Hey doggai, do you think the present guy is better? Even Clinton was better that OBO. He would have replaced Buchanan as the worst president in US history except that Carter already did that! Itn is time for OBO to roll up his prayer rug and move on.
