Dennis thinks he might be toast based on his immigration answer last night.

Perry turned off a lot of conservatives last night. It will be difficult to win them back. That was one of the worst performances I have ever seen in a GOP debate.
From what I have read and heard, today, yes, the Perry BUBBLE is over................except for his diehard fanatics.
He’s not toast yet.
But he will be toast when people find out Perry is for amnesty for the illegals (he would give the illegals working here “guest worker” status allowing them to live here legally).
What he needs to do is a sincere, credible flip-flop on his illegal immigration positions.
He would be more viable as a flip-flopper than as a pro-illegals candidate.
Chris Christie could change everything.
I was supporting Perry (with Palin sidelined) for the past 4 weeks. After last night, no longer.
You don’t call me “heartless” and expect my vote.
Maybe not yet....but the fat lady is warming her vocals.
What would Christie do differently?
We should never nominate anyone who acts like he is embarrassed by his base.(Close as I can recall)
We can certainly hope so after last night. Time for a CONSERVATIVE that can win to enter the race- and by that I mean Sarah, NOT Christie.
Yeppers. He lost the Tea Party concerning the illegal immigration issue. That’s a major biggie as far as his support base and it really is that simple.
This is why we need debates.
Better crashing now than in general election time.
Perry is AGAINST illegal immigration.
It is a shame he had such a lousy performance last night, but people keep mixing apple and oranges on this in state tuition thing.
Perrys position is that we are better off educating these kids than ignoring them.
He has repeatedly pointed out that it is the federal Government that is the obstacle to deportation.
He would take votes away from Romney.
Perry’s argument is irrational.
I used to think the same thing until he has had no control over his diet. I will be kind and shut up.
These aren’t debates, basically everyone agrees on the issues....all these are are an endless stream of personal attacks....all it does is tear everybody else.
Stupid for the GOP to agree to this sham.
I can hope..... no more Ringos
