    Maybe it will take a former Democrat to take the Republican party to the White House.

    Perry is the person who wanted Texas to secede from the United States, and then whined when he didn't immediately get the funding he thought he deserved for emergency mitigation. I don't see how ANYONE who claims to be a patriotic citizen of the United States could support him. I have another word for Perry's actions, which would probably prevent this post from being published.

    I want someone as president who is willing to do what is good for the United States and ALL its citizens. That is NOT Perry.

    I would be happy with, and support Romney, Bachman, Pawlenty or Cain, or Palin.

    I would be delighted with and work my butt off to get Perry elected.

    He will stand up for real conservative principles without a need to feel apologetic. With Texas the beacon of freedom, and generating more new jobs than the rest of the country combined, Perry has experience doing stuff that our nation desperately needs!

    Perry will be a great President.

    And, although he is not seeking the job, I very much want Marco Rubio as the Vice Presidential nominee with whoever the Republicans nominate!

    Perry-Rubio 2012! Dang, I like the sound of that and what it can do to save our country!

    I like him, he is a proven conservative despite one early misstep if Mitt can't do the job of getting rid of Obama then Perry is okey with me.

    Are we all sure that it's the President of the United States we're talking about here and not presidency of the seceded Republic of Texas that Perry's after? Would he want to make gun-packing merely legal, or would it be mandatory? Before committing to this yahoo, I think we should know what he would do if he, ah, lost the election.
