If Gov Perry gets to the WH his closest ally/adviser will remain his wife, a fellow Republican. Unlike Herman Cain whose closest adviser is a Democrat, Gloria Cain.
Wonder if she would vote for Herman for President over Obama?
Enough said. OTOH; am compelled to add that. . .
. . .we do have a candidate with a superior intelligence; a man with experience; and one who learns from his mistakes. He knows too; mistakes from our world's history; and what we must avoid as a nation; so as to not repeat same.
He knows how Congress works - because he has 'been there'. Because of his resume; he understands foreign policy. This candidate would win any debate with Obama; and he can stand shoulder to shoulder; or above; with our Allies; and he will not duck from - nor bow to - America's enemies. And there will be no 'mistaking' his message.
(We have a candidate, who is both, a Patriot and a Scholar and by turn, knows; loves and respects our Constitution; and is committed to protecting it's word and spirit. We need - and we have - a candidate who respects the merits of Capitalism; so neccessary to America's success; and who also recognizes the threat of anti-America 'isms'; now being imposed/impressed upon our nation.)
So, can only ask; Why, Why. . . are Repubs hunkering around those, who are inarticulate and clumsy when it comes to Foreign Policy? Why are we so desperately forgiving of our candidates; who readily admit, that they cannot sufficiently define/articulate/maximize issues? Why are we making allowances for those who are not yet; educated to the 'who/how/whatever' of America's enemies - foreign AND domestic? Why are we wasting time, arguing that they can learn?
Time is critical; and a learning curve for the 'needy' is a luxury we cannot afford!
WE need, not only 'boots on the ground'; but as critically; a MIND on the Ground. And with that; competent leadership; from first moment of Presidency! That our candidate must be an authentic Republican; should be a given.
We do NOT need; a warmed over; refurbished Democrat; with a Republican ID. (Anymore, than a Democrat wife/advisor in the White House. Not by a ten-foot pole, should any Democrat; by affiliation or just by 'heart'; be there; in our name.)
As well; we should not be waiting/hoping for a candidate to be appropriately schooled; or just 'brought up to speed' before next debate. And hopefully; we have finally learned; that a younger President is not neccessarily a better President; nor a 'pressed suit' and bright/white smile; a promise of greatness.
No 'hellooo' needed. . .
