This is NOT everything in my arsenal but simply one point of many why the MSM is favoring Perry over Palin.

Simply I am trying to bring clarity to the “quitting” issue.

And do you really think the MSM is overlooking the fact Perry left office before his full term was up after promising not to do so for any other reason than to prevent comparisons to Palin leaving office prematurely?

I may be a simpleton but I didn’t just get off the bus.

Perry hasn't left his office. He's still Governor.

Perry is still the governor of Texas.

Some of this stuff just blows me away.

If this is the best arsenel you have, good luck!

Palin quit the Governorship to become a Fox pundit and make millions. If McCain was elected President and Palin became the VP, she would also then have quit the Governorship. And, no fool would call her a quitter in that scenario. While she was a VP candidate, nobody complained that she quit her Governorship.

Perry has not yet quit the Governorship and will only do if he were to be elected President. Is there no difference?

“I may be a simpleton but I didn’t just get off the bus.”

The bus part is subject to question.

The MSM is not ignoring anything that could hurt Perry. It is opposed to him nearly as much as to her. It is desperate to destroy him as it tried to do with her.

Sarah has stood up to everything that has been thrown at her and we have yet to see if that will be the case with Perry. I hope he went through his closets and won’t be blindsided by any skeletons which may be dragged into the light.

My buddy and I were talking about this and he said “Well, he has been governor of Texas for ten years there must not be anything there.” I reminded him of the drunken driving arrest that Bush had which was not brought up until the weekend before the election in 2000. Surely the Treason Media did not just find that out but waited until it was sure to do maximum damage before releasing the story.

Palin joined a national ticket about 20 months into her first term and then quit entirely before the first term was complete.

You're attacking a guy who is already 10 years on the job because he sees an opportunity (or need because the field has not yet produced a strong horse) for him to run against Obama because he told a questioner 20 months before he announced his candidacy that he would serve his full term?

If, somehow, he's the 45th president of the United States it won't happen until he's been governor for a dozen years. If he doesn't get the nomination he's still governor. He may still serve that full term.

It's really up to Texans if they "forgive" him. Clinton polled on that very question when he was running for POTUS to see if the promise he'd made to fill out his term would be held against him by Arkansans.

I don't see where Palin fans have any room to talk on this issue and, as already pointed out, Obama who promised not to run in his first term as Senator for damned sure does not either.

If Palin's read on the field is Perry won't win, then she should get in today. Announce on the Sunday shows. Until Perry joined, Romney was far out in front.

If you were Perry or Palin would you really sit on the sidelines and say we'll risk Romney vs Obama instead of running yourselves? I don't think so.

Ridding us all of the Obama regime is too important.
