“The one consistent fact in the story is that the word on a rock was painted over and obscured many years ago,” Mr. Sullivan said.

Rick Perry was not responsible for the name of this ranch. I am disappointed in Herman Cain for bringing this race-baiting issue into the campaign.

I was really hoping Cain would be different than obama - and help unite our country. Instead, it appears he is following the typical black agenda.

You had a President who claimed to be interested in the "American agenda". His name was George Dubya Bush and he got this country in a worse mess than ever imagined. Yet you blind "Americans" voted him in another 4 years and got more of the same, namely many of your youth were killed in a senseless war.

Obama is trying to clean up this government and the mess made by the former Pres. 8 years of destruction is hard to rectify in 4 years, but He's doing an excellent job and I will continue to stand by him til the very end.

I am very disappointed in Herman Cain. Is he seeking to divide? That is what we have had enough of. I thought he was above such foolishness. Would never think of him as my candidate now, and I was seriously considering him.

It appears he is. Total turn off for me. I'm sick of it coming out of the White House and wouldn't vote someone in for more of it.

Excellent comment. I agree with every word of it.

Maybe you already know it, but America's top historians agree with you also.

C-Span surveyed 109 professional historians in 2009 to come up with an exhaustive ranking of all 42 former p
residents.

The BOTTOM 10:

33. Hayes (R)
34. Hoover (R)
35. John Tyler (Whig)
36. G. W. BUSH (R)
37. Fillmore (Whig)
38. Harding (R)
39. Harrison (R)
40. Pierce (D)
41. Andrew Johnson (D)
42. James Buchanan (D)

109 professional historians ranked G. W. Bush's presidency 98% FAILURE and 2% success

A historian surveyed by C-Span said, "With his unprovoked and disastrous war of aggression in Iraq and his monstrous deficits, Bush has SET THIS COUNTRY ON A COURSE THAT WILL TAKE DECADES TO CORRECT."

"When future historians look back to identify the moment at which the United States BEGAN TO LOSE ITS POSITION OF WORLD LEADERSHIP, THEY WILL POINT-RIGHTLY-TO THE BUSH PRESIDENCY," a historian commented to C-Span.

I was not aware of the information/survey you posted. Very Interesting indeed. Thank you for posting. It furthers my belief that under Bush's leadership EXTREME damage was done to your country and other nations as well. But there will always be people who will look to Bush as some sort of hero.

Those who lease hunting property do not take control of the land. They can complain to the owners to change things, or risk being taken to court for damages if they do it on their own. All ya all are blowing this way out of proportion, so I believe some of you are leftist POS's jacking your jaws again. These constant attacks on Perry are being directed by the n-word in the White House. You don't like it, too bad.

Have you wondered why the liberal press and the Republican establishment are working together to do a hatchet job on Perry?

At one time I thought Karl Rove was for the Country as a whole, but no longer. He is only worried about his pocket book, and the loss of power he will suffer if Perry is elected.

Who in their right mind gives a rats behind about what was painted on a rock back in the 80s and before?

Cain doesn't have a white half, hes all black, therefore, he cannot lay back and pretend racism doesn't exist.
VOTE HERMAIN CAIN, HE'LL SPEAK WHATS ON HIS MIND.
You ppl. thought he was different, yeah, fooled you devils.
