Oh, please.....amazing how many swallowed the Perry Kool-Aid.
Look at the actual facts:
(1) Perry has been raising money for years to run; he entered the race with three PACs (that we know of)......teeming with money.
(2) Perry cunningly did not actually enter the first contest---the Iowa Straw Poll----instead he calculatedly manipulated the vote from Texas. That was supposed to take him over the top. He got a pathetic 700 write-ins----but there he was front and center, posing in front of Iowa banners---waving the victory sign----as if he was the winner.
He stomped all over Bachmann's first place win with 4000 votes---she worked long and hard and spent money in the state.
"Team player" Perry threw his hat in the very day Bachmann won---stopping her hard-earned momentum.
For Perry---it's been downhill ever since the debates. Some of us thought he can't sink any lower, but with Anita's help........who knows?
Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
Boy, I was unaware that you and your little band speak for all on this site. Your self-importance is stunningly stupid. BTW, your guy, is tanking, just in case you haven't noticed.
Here's a rough blueprint...
After NH, I think the top three will still be hanging around ( Newt, Cain, Mitt). If Perry turns his camping around..it will be a 4 way race. Paul will be there..with between 5-10%..he'll stay till near the end..because he has $$..and his supporters are fanatical.. the second tier..Bachman, Santorum, Huntsman..with between 10-15% fo the vote combined..will have to drop out..no funds..and we'll see where their vote goes. If most flows to ONE candidate, it can be decisive..if it's spread around.. we continue..
My personal feeling is that Mitt's done after NH...he's gonna do 4th in Iowa..will only get a small plurality in NH, and will get wiped out in SC..I think you come down to Perry, Newt, and Cain..all with about 20-25% of the vote, some for Paul, and most undecided..if the following primaries, including Super Tuesday..aren't decisive...then we can come to Tampa with 3 in congtention..though obviosu that not ONE of them is the favorite...or can even command a majority..
After that..it's anyone's guess?
Wonder if she would vote for Herman for President over Obama?
Perry has engineered the losingest strategy in presidential politics, to date: personally insulting and demeaning the people he needs to vote for him; cueing his supporters to insult and demean them; showing his contempt for the process.
And he has the gall to ask for support?
Perry's three ads -- a bio spot, an anti-Obama spot, and even one stupidly characterizing himself as an "outsider" ---- are ludicrous.
All of Perry's moves show his utter contempt for voters and for the American electoral process. Long past time for a candidate polling in single digits to wake up to reality and go home.
Poo-flinging anti-Perry Monkey Bump !!
I would say it was just a bit different. He decided to join the race, and put together a plan to enter methodically. His plan was to spend two months putting an organization together, getting donors lined up, and fleshing out his campaign themes.
But he immediately jumped to the front of the pack, so he couldn’t just hide out and do what he was going to do. So he decided to join the debates, and make some appearances (very few appearances).
He figured even though he didn’t have his campaign themes, he could certainly explain his conservative positions at a debate. But as the front-runner, everybody targeted him, and rather than getting to talk about the dozens of solid conservative positions he held, or the dozens of solid conservative actions he had taken, his entire first debate was taken up with questions about a never-implemented school vaccination issue, and the entire second debate about a completely uncontroversial, near-unanimously approved bill from his first year in office that he signed.
Before he had a chance to get things together, he had not only been knocked down, but BECAUSE he had been in the front, he was written off.
If he had never risen to the top, his current poll numbers would be OK for a guy who was just now starting to come out and actively campaign.
I picture things a bit different than you.
Iowa Newt and Cain statistically tied. Perry a distant third, followed Paul. Bachman might even beat Romney.
N.H. - Romney wins minimally.
S.C. - Cain, Newt, Romney, Perry.
FL. - This is hardest to predict right now, but will also be the one that starts driving candidates out. My gut feeling is that Cain has an advantage over Gingrich here, but that might be wishful thinking on my part. This could be the spot Romney bails out again.
Normally there’s someone else in charge, but they are already splitting duties, one group defending Cain’s indefensible refusal to do a 1-hour interview and have it taped for C-Span, and another group defending Cain’s inexplicable reversal and request to do the 1-hour interview and have it taped for C-Span.
Things are a bit hectic, so we’ll probably be light on people coming here to attack the wife of a candidate. At least Perry’s wife believes in what he is doing, and will fight for the principles he espouses, and wants to be on the trail with him.
You might have a point about this being a good point for a new candidate, except for one detail: he has lost another 4.3 points in the RCP average in the last month. This means he is dropping further toward the bottom, rather than rising. With about 6 weeks left before voting begins, he would have to turn things around rapidly. For all the money he spent in his ads, he seemed to only get a temporary 2 point bump from them.
Three months into his campaign, his poll numbers are twice what Cain’s were 3 months into HIS campaign.
But he did fall a long way to get there.
As far as when candidates start bailing out..that's harder to tell..because all the debates enable the 2nd tier to hang around for a few more weeks each time, without needing much $$$.
S Carolina has picked the eventual winner since 1980. Eventually, they'll mess up, and get it wrong..but I have no doubt they'll get the top two, right..though not necessarily in the correct order.
S Carolina IS important..first primary in the south, and with an electorate that really reflectes the GOP base..and one more thing..both Haley and DeMin have pledged to stay neutral in the race until after the vote, ( or possible just before) and they will have an impact..especially if they agree on a candidate..
OTOH, there's still a chance that we come to Tampa without a candidate..an open convention...
If I want to hear the pathetic whinings of a deranged Combiner thug and apologist loser who threatens violence against those that don’t share his viewpoint, I’ll ask you. Have a nice day.
And next week, if Cain is below Perry, you’ll be telling Cain supporters that Cain should drop out and support Perry? I’m pretty sure you werent’ saying that when Perry was way ahead of Cain before. And I doubt you’ll say that about Cain and Gingrich, even though many Cain supporters had nothing but nice things to say about Gingrich when he was just a foil to make Cain look good at a two-man question-and-answer session.
Maybe he’s getting punished for the nasty dirty trick he pulled on Bachmann.
I think a “strike force” Organized against illegals, in any fashion, shape or form - including those in schools spending our tax dollars, would have been better than an Iowa Strike Force.
Shooting little innocent doves - in soft focus no less.
I’ve asked if there’s a photo that can be posted of Perry reading a book, but nobody has taken me up on the offer.
"Honey, I told you to fill my water bottle with Grey Goose. That's what First Ladies drink."
Send him “Touched”, by Jerry Sandusky, if you want to see him read a book.
The best thing about Cain that unlike the rest of the field, he’s not a career politician. Those career politicians are responsible for the dreadful mess we’re currently in.
Liz & I came up with several cookbooks for the Perrys. Mine was: The Anita Perry Cookbook: Vodka Is Not Just A Sauce.
Now, now. Making common-sense suggestions like that will give Wifey the vapors.
You’re in trouble now, lol. The fan girls are not going to like THAT implication.
Personally, I think he probably reads comic books.
You guys are bad!
WTF are you talking about? You truly are pathetic and child like. Maybe you should grow up and get a job.
Yes, I am very bad. Usually when I appear the fangirls come sweeping out of their dark attics ready to press the “abuse” button or run to the mods. Crybabies.
Maybe they will self destruct. lol Wishful thinking on my part I guess. I just like to read honest old fashioned give and take. You know the kind we used to have a lot of on this site.
I very seldom ever even commented but I enjoyed the conversations and a lot of them were very informative. Nowadays it is too similar to school yard sniping.
‘My candidate’s better than yours.’
‘Huh uh mine’s better and your stinks.’
‘No way! Yours is stupid!’
‘No, yours is stupid and fat and nobody likes him.’
‘I’m telling. Blah, blah blah.’
You get the drift, right? But that’s just my view.
Now, now.......let’s be nice.
Perry is conversant on “Poultry Feed.’
How to work it into foreign policy discussions is the problem.
I wonder how many dead doves ya gotta barbeque to get up a halfway decent meal. 30 dead doves? 60? Chicken-fried Dove?
Submerging dead doves into coagulated BBQ sauce marinated in a Rubbermaid trash can is a Perry down-home specialty.
....what to make of Rick Perrys race so far: 1. He got pushed into signing up by supporters 2. He listened to all his fans, put on his running shoes and took off in a full sprint with no race plan or real knowledge of the course..*** Oh, please.....amazing how many swallowed the Perry Kool-Aid. ***
Here's what I'm getting about Perry's race so far:
Or maybe more aptly she's like Angela Lansbury and the 'The Queen of Hearts' in The Manchurian Candidate. LaRaza Ricky being the brainwashed Laurence Harvey. And all the Perrybots haven't drank Kool-Aid, they're the brain-washed Army Patrol members who were with Harvey when captured by the commies.
Now I don't like 'picking on' the wives of politicians(1) -- until THEY become the 'co-candidate'. At that point all bets are off as it's apparent we'd be voting for a 'Two-For-One'. Like Billy-Jeff & Hitlery, Barry & Moose-Hell and now LaRaza Rick and Anita.
(That's why Laura Bush had and has, Class and a lot of it. A real Lady all the way)
(1) Or women in general. It isn't the gentlemanly thing to do.
(guess I'm a Chauvinist, besides being 'heartless' and a 'bigot')
make that Queen of Diamonds, not Hearts. [I hit post to quick.]
I’m sure they’d reach an agreement or a settlement on that issue. ;^)
Good for Anita. I know she will have lots of support in this effort.
She reminds me of Hillary a lot. I think it will be a two fer if they get in. She seems to want it more than he does for sure.
"An enema would be just the thing, Ricky."
I didn’t know that! I must go to the Perrys’ website to get the recipe. It sounds...well...interesting.
Oh, Condor, you make me laugh! Weeks ago when Anita gave her overly mint-juleped speech about how religion was the cause of all her husband’s problems, Liz and I did the entire “Manchurian Candidate” thing. I used to think Rickey was Laurence Harvey but now he’s more like James Gregory, the dopey, dim-witted Senator who is married to Anita...er, I mean Angela Lansbury. Maybe the fangirls have really been brainwashed during a Texas garden party!
