    I don't know who I'm voting for yet in 2012. I do know it won't be Obama. I know, I know, you all are shocked and dismayed. But no seriously, I'm not voting for Obama.

    Perry is very interesting though. He's not afraid to bash and trash Obama. He would win any and every debate against him. Look for Obama to dodge and give excuses about why he won't debate Perry on this day or that day, or even any day if Perry ends up being the nominee.

    I like it.

    Re: Gov. Rick Perry: The Candidate Obama Would Fear the Most

    You like the wrong fucking guy... This is the guy who said Texas doesn't need any bail out money... then takes it. We didn't need it either, since 2008 4 of 10 every jobs created in the united states came from Texas. Perry isn't even worth talking about. Our school system is shit, our roads are shit. Perry is an idiot.

    Re: Gov. Rick Perry: The Candidate Obama Would Fear the Most

    There is really only one candidate that stands out (at the moment) as a potential challenger to Obama, and that's Romney. Perry couldn't win an independent vote to save his life. No Democrats will crossover to vote for him. He cannot carry any Northeastern states, nor any Midwestern states. Perry is the exact opposite of Mitt Romney (who could win several toss-up states, could win a majority of independents, will have disheartened Democrats crossing over, and will most likely will the South by default.)

    Re: Gov. Rick Perry: The Candidate Obama Would Fear the Most

    You realize Perry is a complete and total shill? He (like Pawlenty) isn't even a genuine conservative. They're both progressive globalists (damn near neoconservatives). He's acting the part of a rabid 10th amendment supporting, gun-loving, secessionist because it's the direct opposite of the truth, an amoral globalist clearing the way for the Trans-Texas Corridor.

    Where's all his 10th amendment talk, Texas for Texans, individual rights, and blatherings of sovereignty when it comes down to the issue of eminent domain? To build a highway for foreign investors.

    What conservative in their right mind would vote for a guy wanting to flood America with trash-goods produced in sweatshops from Mexico?

    People wonder why we don't have manufacturing jobs in this country anymore...

    Since everyone talks about Clinton riding the internet bubble, should only be fair that Perry is riding the techno bubble that's been happening in Texas, mostly thanks to Austin.

    All I hear about this guy is that he is even dumber than Bush. This came from Texans. I guess I should listen to more conservative AM radio to be more 'balanced'. :rolleyes:

    Re: Gov. Rick Perry: The Candidate Obama Would Fear the Most

    When it comes to Prez candidates, Repubs are the party of "who's turn is it.? In the last 50 years, the Rs have essentially come up with Nixon and Bush administrations. Maybe I'm oversimplifying this, but something about Bush Sr. being former CIA chief, then his son being Prez for 8 yrs, makes me think Reagan wasn't really running the nation.

    If you value "shaking up" Washington DC, I don't see how the Republican party is the one you are waiting for to get that done.

    Re: Gov. Rick Perry: The Candidate Obama Would Fear the Most

    Both parties do it.. It was Hillary's turn 4 years ago.. Nobody knew the caucuses would turn out the way they did for Obama. No one saw it coming.

    But rep for the bolded statement. Bush Sr. was a very powerful man.. And think about this one: when he ran for Congress, was he CIA? How many Congresspersons do we have that are active CIA secret agents? Makes you wonder don't it?

    Re: Gov. Rick Perry: The Candidate Obama Would Fear the Most

    That alone might be enough to let him have another 4 years. If you're totally against liberal politics, then, whatever. But, if you're on the fence, then I think you should look at this 2012 election as a chance to give a REAL outsider the opportunity to make REAL change without having to worry about reelection. If you REALLY care about changing DC politics, why not give him that chance? And no, I don't want to hear your paranoid, racist conspiracy theory about how Obama wants a depression and a one world govt. Yeah, I'm talking to you Glen Beck, you fucking crazy shill.

    I don't know. I just think changing the WAY Congress does their job seems like priority #1 right now. The rhetoric and hyperbole is heartbreaking. I know voting for Obama won't directly affect that, but I haven't seen an alternative that has any chance in hell.

    Re: Gov. Rick Perry: The Candidate Obama Would Fear the Most

    Oh hell yes. Fact is; I know quite a few very much liberal people who have stated they won't vote for Obama either. Most of them are for reasons different from mine though. LOL They don't feel he's liberal enough and I feel he's extremely liberal and has been in campaign mode for the most part since 2009. I feel this country is much worse off right now than it was in 2008, and it's not even close in my mind. Nothing Obama has done has helped the economy one bit. Don't tell me about how bad it was when he took office as that's a cop out and an excuse that is now extremely old. Or how many jobs his policies have "saved". LOL The fact is; real unemployment is ridiculously high. The country is overall in much worse shape than it was before Obama took office. Nothing written otherwise can spin it's way to change my mind.

    ANY nominee that runs against Obama will get my vote. Period.

    Doug's arguments are the same in every political thread: "Don't give me that sorry bullshit about Obama inheriting a shitty economy. I mean, how could a president not fix the entire country's problems in 2.5 years?!? Insanity!"
