Many Americans are lazy. That’s why they vote democRAT, so the gubermint can buy their gas and pay their mortgages for them.
Don’t bother! Perry is through! /s
Darn it, I finally decide which candidate to support and he’s done! Oh, well. /s
Darn the bad luck!
And Cains pretty good at saying “9,9,9”
Thanks. FR must not like “#”s in the URL.
It was excellent. I saw Sean’s show, in fact taped it so I could see the interview.
You caught it and fixed it while I was watching the interview.
Perry really settled in during the last part of the interview.
He just need to relax and be himself.
Assuming you are serious (not about being done), you would be an example of what I expect will happen over the next month. A lot of undecideds, many of whom have been flitting from candidate to candidate, at least in polling, while formally remaining uncommitted, will start making choices.
I think Perry has a chance in this environment, assuming he does as well in the next debates as he did in the last one. His proposals get him a second look, his commercials are really good, and his recent gaffes have been of performance, not substance.
Yes, he’s at his best when he’s relaxed and being plain ol’ Rick.
His biggest problem as I see it is that the fickle public wants a Superstar.
They demand substance, but they vote for superstar.
Exactly, when people get serious. Perry is the only logical choice.
I think so.
But good ol rick is different from “Office Rick”
I suspect, that hammering out details is easy for him and that he likes to roll his sleeves up, but he isn’t good at explaining his day at the office to to folks.
It’s two different worlds.
Who the heck is?
I’ll tell you who. Professional BSers.
I totally agree. Yes, I’m serious. I held out until I knew what all the candidates had to offer. I made my decision when Perry put forth his Uproot and Overhaul Washington plan. I don’t want a new coat of paint, I want an overhaul. I want the whole package. I know Perry has a tough road ahead and his chances aren’t great, but I think he’s the best of the not-Romneys.
LoL! I am not sure if I would even pay $9.99 for one of his pizzas.
I looked at the menu.
Gluten free, Rice flour crust? Blech!
Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm! That’s the way I would run a pizza chain. /s
BTW, we had our depts Thanksgiving spread today here in Tx.
We had smoked turkey, BBQ pulled pork, BBQ sliced brisket and a list of sides, deserts and snacks I could never recall.
And Guess what? We blessed the dinner with prayer.
I was sad that we had to ask in this crazy world if it would be OK, but No one objected, and we all bowed our heads and gave thanks.
That’s the way dinner is served in Tx.
Um you are aware that Cain left Godfather’s in 1996...
In Texas we operate by saying, Whoaa!! Thems a lot of chiles! Me and Chiles don't get along. Maybe I should not eat that.
Apparently In Herman's world we are one degree away from Obama's policy's.
No thanks. Keep your gluten free pizza world and sympathies.
Yup. And just where did he leave them?
Let’s have a vetting of the record.
What was their place in the pizza world when he left?
Jan Brewer on the Greta show now, and she admits that the Fed has all of her state policy snubbed in court.
Perry understands the landmines that brewer was about to walk into, that is why he said the Az law was not right for Tx.
It was not because he did not sympathize with what she was trying to do.
Actually Cain turned the business around and back into a growing and profitable enterprise.
But nice way to try and divert from the stupidity of trying to “blame” ( as if marketing a new product to customers not severed otherwise is a problem in business) Cain who has been gone for 15 years for a decision made recently...
You do Perry credit with your brilliance..
I was just pointing out that Godfathers Pizza is a place that tows the PC line and that since Cain was involved with them it must be his fault. /S
He stopped the bleeding, by cutting jobs and non profitable stores.
Godfathers has sunk even further as to market share.
What is Godfathers Market share.
What was it then and now?
You don’t see the Irony of his comments on a sissy pizza?
I thought that was the top of his resume.
Do you have any idea when was the last time Perry ran the 13th largest economy in the world?
An economy that is THRIVING?
Ooops! He is doing it NOW!
That is partly right. He made it profitable. He did so by cutting the franchises that were losing money. That is the easiest way to return to profitability, get rid of all the stores that are unprofitable.
Unfortunately, he was never able to grow the company. Growing is why companies sometimes have unprofitable outlets -- they are unprofitable until they earn market share. That is the hard task. Monoghan did it at Dominoes, starting with nothing and creating the 2nd largest pizza chain in the world.
Cain was a competent manager, who cut costs and cut unprofitable franchises, and then spent the rest of his time caretaking the business. It never increased in revenue, it didn't expand it's number of franchises, it didn't grow in market share.
Godfather's was once the number 3 pizza company. It fell on hard times, and when Cain was put in charge, it was number 5. Pillsbury put him in charge to turn it around, to make it back into the number 3 company. Instead, they ended up selling him the company. And when he stopped day-to-day control in 1996, Godfathers was the 8th-largest pizza company. He stayed on the board until the early 2000s -- when he left for good, Godfather's was the 11th largest pizza company.
And at the height of his prowess all he did was stop the bleeding and return a 1.5% profit margin.
America needs growth!
Texas is growing!
That’s the RATS’ problem. Rick wasn’t supposed to be in the mix. Thus, he is not appearing in the polls.
Yet, he’s got Hoyer and Pelosi responding to him.
In fact, I’d bet dollars to donuts that Rick was the one the RATS were instructed to cross over and vote for in the primaries, as the one zero could most easily beat.
In the meantime, having done SOMETHING to keep Sarah from running, her base moves to Cain, who knew these skeletons of his most likely will come up.
Now Cain’s base moves to Newt, who reverberates with Joe 6 Pack like a slab of what? sandwiched between two slices of who?
Then Sarah intimates Rick’s her pick, but can’t say so.
Rick, in the meantime, is ignored at the LSM surface until he starts taking it to the people AND the rats.
First off, I am not a woman (nice pot shot pig)
Second Governors DO run economy’s. Or are you not familiar with the way we lay out federalism and states rights?
I think Cain is a closet socialist,with his “empowerment zones”
And gluten free Pizzas with corporate sensitivity training on celiac disease.
Cain and Newt are classic statists, who think fed power is the answer and solution to everything.
Perry is just the opposite.
Wrong again, lady.
Ha ha! You’re back to your usual obnoxiousness!
