Not necessarily, I have an “obama voting but fed up” friend who absolutely hates Bush and is concerned about Perry for the exact reason you state, but he will vote for Perry if he is the candidate, or Mitt. I still have more convincing to do get him to confirm that he will vote for Palin too if she is the candidate.
The depth of Obama disgust among so many of those that voted for him is very deep, so deep that many of them would vote for George Bush over Obama if that was the choice.
“I still have more convincing to do get him to confirm that he will vote for Palin too if she is the candidate.”
Why don’t you wait and find out who the candidate is? Then you only have to convince your friend once.
Many of those would love W to be in the WH now...his unemployment numbers were outstanding compared to this mongrel. He also didn’t destroy jobs or the economy on purpose. So yes, they’d vote Perry easily.
