Perry comes crashing back down to earth like an old NASA satellite; campaign team is praying he doesn't break up on re-entry

Rick Perry: Could it really have been that short lived?
Three debates in and a New Hampshire poll down, Rick Perry looks like he's lost his mojo. Is that all, folks?

If you watched the Fox/Google debate that kicked off the Conservative Political Action Conference in Florida this week, you'll know which video clip we're going to embed below. If you didn't, you're in for somewhat of a treat.


Rick Perry, Governor of Texas, created waves when he entered the GOP race for the presidential nomination. His entry scared off other vultures who were circling, like Giuliani and Palin perhaps, and he robbed momentum from the now almost absent Michele Bachmann.

Tim Pawlenty, Jon Huntsman, Mitt Romney and Ron Paul all saw their own figures give way as the Governor of the Lone Star State threw his Stetson in the ring. Alas this honeymoon period was short lived for Perry. Latest performances and polling figures suggest he's coming crashing back down to earth like an old NASA satellite. His campaign team will be praying he doesn't break up on re-entry.

whens ron gonna be on the daily show?

Yes i do know how to use google... but i also know how to bump threads over division threads that otherwise genuine dpers are often tempted to bump.

Dr. Paul on Daily Show

To tell you the truth - Perry is actually a little LESS worse...

...than Romney.

At least Perry tells the truth about Social Security and the Federal Reserve.

He called Social Security a government Ponzi scheme and that the government has no business in the pension business.

He has accused Bernanke of counterfeiting and bordered on calling him treasonous.

You will never hear Romney say these things and for this reason, Romney WILL be the RNC favorite son and get the nomination.

I once thought Perry might be the VP pick but am not sure anymore.

So while it's good that Perry is self-destructing, the REASON he is doing so is because the establishment republicans don't particularly care for some of his message (ALA Ron Paul).

Romney is WORSE. He is as establishment as they come. I can't hack looking at him.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Rick Romney, Mitt Perry

how can anyone even tell them apart ??

Certainly not the hair,

Certainly not the hair, unfortunately not their politics either. Perry's southern accent perhaps?

"Another term for preventive war is aggressive war - starting wars because someday somebody might do something to us. That is not part of the American tradition." -Ron Paul

My Husband and I agree.

we were wondering the very same thing.

Converted A MITT supporter TODAY

Was definetly not for Perry and we are from Texas. After bringing my second car to get inspected, he finally saw the Ron Paul sticker and mentioned it... That opened a 10 minute conversional opportunity.. He will be visiting the DailyPaul because that is the place for the best info.

the moment

he commented on the FED, I knew he would be targeted by the other GOP candidates.

pRick Perry's running...

either on fumes...running out of steam or hot air.

Take your pick, pRick.

Perry could have so easily

Perry could have so easily recovered from that gaffe if he had just gotten real and said, "See, Mitts flipflopping is so complicated and confusing, I can't even keep straight which side of the issues he was on or is on!"


Let me know what you all think


I can't believe someone can look MORE clueless than bush

But sure enough there pArry is... A complete moron who apparently knows how to win elections. He is nothing more than a crooked career politician and everyone knows it.

He entered the race and then BOOM front runner??? All it took was fox to call him that, put him next to mittens and there we go. We now have a two man race and EVERYONE is so STUPID to allow this to go on.

I think herman cain is doing great at least compared to rick pArry and mittens. Not that I want cain as president BUT this isn't some two man race. Ron is polling in 2nd and 3rd and if they would stop putting palin in polls just to push ron down the ladder maybe the public would realize it.

It worries me when people actually support the mittens and pArry politicians. These are NOT friends, these are people trying to help destroy our republic.

We must not fail!

I Welcome Former Perry Supporters

I welcome former Perry supporters to come over and learn about Ron Paul. I think in every news and blog site on this Presidential campaign, is to go into the comments section and invite them back to the Constitution and Liberty. Maybe we do this for every disillusion supporters of their previous first choice candidate.

Hahaha -- a "Welcome Back" effort

"Welcome Back" to Common Sense, the 10th Amendment, and the Constitution.

They will need ego-balm and kindness for supporting JR Ewing.

This is why

we now see the establishment trying to bring Chris Christie into the race, because everyone else is tanking vs RP.
They are running out of scum!

The scumbaggery of it all...

The Establishment's desperation is so lol!

...and Chris Christie is a

"Running out of scum"


We need more

scum Captain!! She can't hold together mooch longer!! I'm givin' 'er all she's got!!

Don't count this guy out yet. There's way too much money invested in him.
You can almost see the "Rove" influence permeating the Fix News network though. I don't know what to make of it.

IDK if Romknee was told to back off in the last election, and that he would get the nod this time around, or if Perry was the chosen one and now they are realizing what a DB he is. Maybe it's all just staged WWF drama to keep the airwaves filled with their stench.

Hopefully pArry goes the way of ghoulianni.

I know one thing. They're certainly not warming up to the Doc. What a surprise.

Perry is just like Bush. Only not as smart.

That is the current joke. Except it ain't no joke.

Scary thought..

..and yet I have a soft spot in my heart for people who are special and mentally challenged. But please, we don't need someone in that condition to run the country.

"I support the Declaration of Independence and I interpret the Constitution."

"someone in that condition to run the country"

You think that's the president's job?

What is begun in anger, ends in shame.

Good question!~

Isn't that job covered by 'the separation of powers'?

After watching Perry debate,

After watching Perry debate, I came to the conclusion that he was either drunk, bored, tired, or simply just unintelligent.
All of the above perhaps...haha
