Rick Perry will be leaving a successful run as Governor, while the Democrats will be showing the country an entirely failed run as President. The people will be ready for a Republican in the oval office. This is especially true after they understand what the Presidents signature success Obamacare, really mean for them

Perry will have a ton of money behind him, but Hillary will
have the adoring MSM running errands for her. You can expect
the Perry jokes to begin tomorrow on Letterman, Leno, Fallon,
etc..... their writers cannot resist. They will, of course,
portray him as woefully less intelligent than Obama or Hillary,
though Hillary's timer as Secretary of State was without
accomplishment. Obama would have been better off without her,
but he caved in to an offer from Billy C. in return for
supporting him. In truth Hill and Bill cannot stand him.

The Perry " I pray for rain that never comes" jokes started along time ago.

Any politician who said "ooops" in a presidential debate because he forgot something more important that what newspaper he reads is up for mockery. I would bet even Perry would agree.

No. His reply was profoundly honest and sincere.
I found his answer humorous given that Obama, Bush,
and others have been programmed and coached to say
anything necessary to get elected. Notice that Perry
did not need a teleprompter to say "Oops." Obama
would have just said "Uh....uh....uh...uh. " Bush
would have mispronounced "Oops."

Isn't it nice to have a real person rather than a
teleprompter-fed guy at the wheel? Obama is a coml-
plete idiot without a teleprompter. "I ... uh ....
I uh .... I ... think ... uh ...."

Cost of ObamaCare subsidies has increased dramatically, critics say

The cost of subsidies for those seeking government aid through ObamaCare has increased dramatically, critics say even before a single dollar has been collected.

I'll be voting for Hillary in 2016, as will tens of millions of other Americans.

Care to make some of your infamous Le Dumbo predictions? Maybe post some Assmussen polling data?

Hillary already polls higher than Perry in Texas, and higher than RU-B-O in Florida.

Those losers can't even win their own home state!

Maybe Mittens will run again, so he can lose ALL FOUR of his home states again!!!

he was and has been doing great all along, Texans need another governor like Perry....who doesn't give up. Gregory Abbott should run for governor, good candidate.
