    equivocation when it comes to politics are all about perception.  If you are perceived to be weak, to back down, to give-in, to not fight for what you believe in, then you'll pay the consequences.

      ..Obama is the milksop intellectual who pees his pants when things gets dicey;   Perry is the damn the torpedoes Daddy figure that is going to protect us from the terrorists, atheists, Muslims & Socialists.

      I'll just cherry pick this one thing since I could give you a thousand word response that would be full of nothing but factual & anecdotal evidence that Perry is doomed as a presidential candidate:

      Perry sunk his own ship with his "Social Security is a Ponzi Scheme" crack.

      Outside of the Daily Kos echo chamber (an echo chamber that seriously defined Michelle Bachmann as "disciplined") Perry is seen as a cooked goose.

      Just because a bunch of psychopaths roar with approval when Perry brags about how many death row imates he has murdered...that does not automatically mark Perry the next president of the United States.

      When Fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in excess body fat and carrying a misspelled sign.

        By whom, Fox Nation?

        We all need to hope to high heaven that you're right about this. Because there's a very real chance that Buckaroo Bozo will win in November 2010. And the free world will live in fear.

          Even that one little fact doesn't tell you how poor Perry's chances are of beating Obama, nothing will.
