He's been running for president for at least the last two years.

We knew when Perry had Sarah Palin down here raising money for him that he was running for president.

Wonder how she feels knowing she was used.

She helped Perry raise money he will use to try to get the job she wanted.

But Perry can't stand the scrutiny of a national campaign. He thinks he's slick, but I think the Republicans who are a hell of a lot smarter than Perry is will show America what Perry really is: a fraud, unless he toes the line.

As Romney's V.P. candidate, Perry could probably get out the 20% lunatic fringe (aka Palin/Bachmann/Santorum supporters) vote. Unlike Palin, Perry could probably be taught by the big boys to shut up when he is out of his league.

Romney/Perry would probably have the best chance to oust the sitting president, as Palin/Bachmann/Santorum can't be trusted to shut up when they need to be quiet.

Alert Ron Paul and all of his supporters right now! Rick Perry is a RINO (Republican In Name Only) and is trying to steal the Republican primary and the election as well! Rick Perry is George W. Bush's and Barack Obama's puppets! Our country is dead if Rick Perry gets elected! This is NOT a drill! I repeat this is NOT a drill!

Given the extremists he had at his so called 'prayer' rally or meeting or whatever in the hell he called it he is unelectable. Normal Americans do not want to live in a fundamentalist theocracy!

He didn't just officially call for a prayer rally. It was specifically a jeebus prayer rally. He wants an xstain theocracy, specifically.

Republicans are hunting a bear with buck shot. Now we have a preacher man on the pulpit. Revivals for the White House to be schedule shortly. Incantations of love and peace in the day time and Bauchman to lead in the voodoo rituals in the evenings.
Homage to be addressed to our new Masters of Koch. Democracy to be cast out unto the waters of oblivion. http://youtu.be/2Ux8Q3XC98U

There’s a slow train coming !
Ominous Onus’s Omens of Corporatist Elitists !
Some think that life is but a corporate but you and I have been through that. I hear the riders a coming. Hollering winds all along the watchtowers. Winds of change are rattling our windows. Roberts Jan. 2010 Court ruling of unlimited funds, of corporatist, will hence forth be legal to purchase our politics. Gauntlet has been delivered to the people.
No identification of donors funds required ! Therefore we now observe how Koch is first in line to take advantage of this. Chinese, Iranians, and Germans corporations have an avenue of approach to our democratic principles. Roberts has unlatched the draw bridge and Koch is lowering it for the riders that are approaching, and the winds begin to howl. Dust in the winds filling the hallways of our serene democracy.
Sounds of silence from the populace. Camelot besieged and infiltration of the ominous riders enter.
“We The People In Order To Form A More Perfect Union” are interrupted. Voices fill the air, sound the alarm! Trumpet’s have been silenced. Voices fall before the onslaught of the riders. Chaos, fear run within the halls of freedom.
Pied Piper with his dancing prancing Fox seeks to calm the distraught subjects. Voices cry Union, we must Unite, as the riders ride on by. Carving out the multitudes into their separate groups of subjugation.
Ahh… in ruin and polluted beyond appreciation of life. Fair Atlantis submerges beneath the waves of corporatist, corruptive pollution, never to rise again. Farewell dear Atlantis.

Wisconsin has awaken a slumbering giant. One that is not accustomed to TEA.

Tea party has exposed their immaturity for politics. From the chaos they have wrought upon US it becomes quite clear to all their failures to lead US back into prosperity. In a world full of sorrow and woe, such failures are not required. When the day is done they will be of no further use.

"It appears that for now, new revenues have dropped down on the menu of policy options... Compared with previous projections, our revised base case scenario now assumes that the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts, due to expire by the end of 2012, remain in place. We have changed our assumption on this because the majority of Republicans in Congress continue to resist any measure that would raise revenues."
S&P reply to GOP for refusing to raise revenue!

Never Trust Tea flavored republicans. Even when it is put out in plain black and white written English they turn a Koch eye to everything that is not acceptable to their ideologies.
Simple observation of who is the party of NO, NO, NAY, identify the culprits. Not one job have they mustered forth. Yet how many have they NAY, NAY, NO down from materializing.
S&P have a tad more experience, then these individuals that continue to camouflage the failings of the GOP, in these matters. Simple economics shows that spending cuts only, in this scenario we are in now, will prove disastrous. Investors around the world recognize this as well. GOP’s obstructionist political ideology is a demonstration of a failure of leadership at this time. Indicating or implying an agenda that is not in the best interest of our nation.
Next they will take FAA hostage and hold for ransom for granny to pay for their geotactic failures.
“You can always count on Americans to do the right thing—after they’ve tried everything else.” Winston Churchill.

Perhaps you should move out of TX...I guarantee you don't speak for the majority of Wacoans. BTW...if the borders were closed that unemployment rate would drop drastically. Waco looks pretty good to me..esp with the new industry that is moving in...such as the Caterpillar plant.
You have been drinking too much of that tasty Lake Waco water.

Must Be The Season Of The Witch. How does one define narcissism to narcissi. Emerald Roosevelt has to learn to pick up every stitch. Blind to Facts that he cast to the side. Deafly ignores the voices of the world. Deaf to the investors of the markets. What spews forth from is voiceless sounds of silence, echoing within his chasm, deep inside the shadows of canyons. Continuously ranting, nothing of nothing… Similar to the efforts of one trying to rationalize with a determined alcoholic. Sobriety as the avenue to escape out into a world of reason and intelligence. Will they discover the path? Not likely. Fear of their fundamental’s failures are beyond their ability to reconcile to themselves. Doomed to their own makings. Lie to themselves as well as to all others, to secure their self imploded world.
An Example; Lie so much and so many times one will start to believe in their delusional facts; http://youtu.be/O2KU02lsfH8
The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is.
