You tear down Perry constantly.
Bullcrap. My issue is mainly with the antics of his campaign shills on FR and their efforts to tear down the other candidates when those candidates start polling ahead of Perry - and you are the worst of those. My primary critique of Perry is that he has not run an effective campaign (which is true and documented) and often is not prepared for his appearances, that is not a policy difference. I have some differences with Perry on some policies, but do not harp on those , and I could support Perry as the nominee, and think he actually still has a chance - but Perry also has to show he can campaign effectively on a national level, just as Santorum will now need to show he can transition from an Iowa-type situation to the grueling run of the next few months of the primary cycle.
