  •  Quien es mas macho? Perry o Ricardo Mantalvan? (7+ / 0-)

    Perry's machismo wears well in Texas, and may very well win him the nomination...but this juevon will never sell in Peoria.  

    He's only been in the race less than a week and he's already had 2 or 3 gaffes.  I don't think America is ready for a president who packs a concealed, laser sighted handgun.  Nor one who threatens the Fed Chairman with Texas style ugliness.

    Too many of us remember just how ugly Texas can be, and if you don't, Dallas has a museum at the Texas Book Repository to remind you.

      To my mind, the Ben Bernanke reference was brilliant, from the point of view of primary strategy. Perry is going after Ron Paul voters, who hate the Fed and think it should be abolished. That's why Ron Paul came out with a tough attack on Perry today. He's not going to cede those voters easily.

      Packing a concealed handgun? That's manna from heaven for Republican primary voters. You really think that will work against him??

      I agree that this stuff might not play well in a general election matchup. I'm focusing on the primary here. And I think Perry's looking pretty good.
