A dog is an animal. Does that mean all animals are dogs?
I think your original point was that the Media will compare Rick Perry to Bush simply because they were both Governor's of Texas at some point in time.
I would hope we at FR would judge the Candidates by their stated positions rather than guilt by association, which is implied by your post that being a Texan is an automatic dis-qualifier for POTUS.
I am not a big Perry fan, but I am an ardent Antiobamunist.
I would vote for my Dog, who is an Animal BTW, over the current rabble rouser posing as our Commander In Chief.
