The GOP has a problem--they only have 1 or 2 electable candidates running for nomination to be President of the United States--and Rick Perry isn't one of those "electables." The problem with Perry is that other than being a career politician and crony capitalist, he lacks "authenticity" as well as the moral character to be President--but he will do almost anything to win an election:
1. "It’s hard to dispute that Rick Perry’s he-hired-an-illegal-immigrant attack on Mitt Romney was a cheap shot."
2. The man knows no bounds on fibbing (but what would one expect from a guy who endorsed Al Gore and now pretends to be a conservative): “If you’re saying that I can be bought for five thousand, I’m offended,” said Perry, in a response that will make a swell campaign ad. (“Vote for the Man Who Can’t Be Bought for as Little as $5,000!”). Although Merck has apparently donated about $30,000. And at the time Perry made the decision, his former chief of staff was working for Merck as a lobbyist. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/15/opinion/collins-the-bachmann-chronicle.html?src=me&ref=general
I have no idea what my Republican friends are going to do, but I can assure them that Rick Perry is not "their man." Maybe Obama's going to get a second term after all.
