    ....for the country.

    If we want to clear the air and figure out which way the country's going to go -- stronger government vs. weaker government -- a fuzzy guy like Mitt pushing some kind of Compassionate Conservatism Part II, just causes interference.

    Ideology is an excuse to ignore common sense.

      At some point, elections need to mean something again.

    •  Perry won't last two months (1+ / 0-)

      The media is already looking into his "pay for play" Texas politics, where a state with a $25 billion deficit and no money to care for children in poverty, wants to spend close to $25 million dollars for a Formula One race track.
      Or Perry's "Emerging Technology Fund" where some of his biggest donors created companies to get money from the fund, then promptly went bankrupt.

      Then there's the case of Cameron Todd Willingham, sentenced to death after being accused of murdering his wife and children by setting fire to his own house. When forensic arson experts looked into the case and found a lot of erroneous conclusions from the evidence, they attempted to present the evidence to the Texas Forensic Science Commission. Perry stepped in, fired the head of the commission and replaced him with a crony, who promptly canceled the hearings on Willingham, who was executed a few months later.
      Texas is a big state, Perry has plenty of scandals in his background to feed the media for months.
