whether he likes it or not he is a laughing stock.He may not be asstupid as he appeared in the debates but thats dont now and dont t hink he can ever live it down. Besides that he showed that he has nothign to offer. His contacts with his big money suppoprters show that he is t heir patsy.

"He's got a lot of folks around him counseling him what to do,"

Probably the most telling statement so far about Rick Perry. Those big $ contributors don't want to waste the money they've thrown at him, plus he screwed Texas over so big trying to endear himself to the national nuts that he's not really welcome here any more.

"TELL ME WHO YOU'RE FRIENDS ARE AND I WILL TELL YOU WHO YOU ARE"
Jindall is proud to be friends with Perry.....isn't this the same Jindall who four years ago made an appearance on world TV and made statements which everyone got a good laugh out of him? Peryy/Jindall, go figure.....one being the alter ego of the other.

To: DevRock: Excuse me, bud. Texas--and Texans--are NOT pathetic. Crooked Texas politicians, an apathetic voter pool, and electronically rigged E-Slate "elections", now THAT's pathetic (how Perry "won" thrice). Your sweeping generalization reveals a smaller mind than the people you've just now judged--I'm sure you didn't mean to characterize yourself that way. I'm a Texas native, and I have a college degree, a high IQ, and a low tolerance for closed mindedness (and, oh yeah, I love horseback riding, the faster the gallop, the better). You'd be surprised how many of my fellow Texans are exactly the same. Unfortunately, it's the con men and their ilk who get the most media attention. Referring to Perry that way is probably a compliment, given how he relentlessly bashes gay people (my tribe) and is onboard the bonkers "Christian" hatred platform--all the while living a life on the DL. That a man who is so patently fraudulent--Matt Taibbi's scathing piece on him, The Best Little Wh**e In Texas (Google it, it's online in the Rolling Stone archives to be read for free)--can rise to the level he has, all the while pandering to the lowest common denominator of humanity, and selling out Texas to the highest corporate bidders, yep, THAT is pathetic.

Gingrich, Santorum, and Perry didn't get on the ballot in Virginia. How can they possibly win the nomination?

Unfamiliar loser role? There is nothing about this man that says WINNER. He's a losers loser.
He could be the poster-child for losers, everywhere. I hate to slam Texas, I'm sure that there are good people in that state BUT he isn't one of them.

True. Sarah couldn't get elected for anything in Alaska now that they know her.

Is Perry drawing a paycheck as the Governor of Texas while he is campaigning? If so, then the people of Texas are getting shortchanged (or are they?). I ask this question of all politicians who are in office while campaigning, even the ones I like. They should be required to take unpaid leave days, otherwise their jobs appear to be nonessential and should be cut.

Speaking as a resident of Texas, we would gladly pay him to stay as far away from the state as is possible.

THIS is Perry's social agenda he hopes to push in SC.

A Christian Plot for Domination?
Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry aren't just devout—both have deep ties to a fringe fundamentalist movement known as Dominionism, which says Christians should rule the world.

Rick Perry and the Push for American Theocracy
"Perhaps the most eyebrow-raising group to have worked its way into the political arena is the New Apostolic Reformation which demands nothing less than world rule by fundamentalist Christians."

and THIS is perry's "Texas Miracle".

Rick Perry's Texas 'miracle' is built on minimum wage jobs

Too bad it does not seem to be working here in S.C. Romney is waaay ahead, then at less than 1/2 of that is Gingrich and Santorum, Perry and Paul are hardly polling at all.

People are upset about the in-state tuition for Children of illegals.
Children of illegals don't feel like they belong here or in their own country. Texas is treating them like their own by giving them in-state tuition too.God bless Texas for acting on God's word.Luke 6:31 Do to others as you would have them do to you.Matthew 7:21 Not every one that says to me Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven;but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

This is the man who assured his backers that there was nothing embarrassing in his background before he ran. His entire campaign is an embarrassment.

The simple fact that this con artist wins so many elections goes to show how far we have to go as a species. Texas is pathetic and its people are probably the most uneducated on the planet, afaiac.
