Skip to comments.Paul and Perry Are Poised to Punk Romney and Gingrich in Iowa
Posted on 12/22/2011 7:19:22 AM PST by stillafreemind
Besides Paul's top position, Perry is now third or fourth in most of the polling. Pundits say Iowa is irrelevant if Paul wins, as he is a one-trick pony. Could a win in Iowa ignite the Paul ground teams in other states? Paul is a force to be reckoned with because of his staunch supporters. Maybe candidates should be reaching towards Paul instead of running away from him.
Perry, on the other hand, could be the dark horse in this race. If not nationally, at least he appears to be set to come from behind in Iowa. Why are people giving Perry a second look? His supporters do not mind that he is not the best debater.

Surprisingly, nobody will care to tell Sherry SHE is the one getting punked on Jan. 3rd.
Perry is working hard and the good folks of Iowa appreciate that kind of hard work. Romney has his super PAC coming out with ads trying to tarnish both Rick and Newt but I think people are on to them, they’ve been caught in so many lies they aren’t likely to make much headway.
Perry is the logical beneficiary if Gingrich really does fall and voters still want to reject Romney. For all his campaign warts, he is the best positioned to be a president. He has the economic track-record and also in Iowa has the social conservative record. Santorum or Bachmann are good on the issues, but lack the governing experience and performance of Perry in Texas. I still greatly struggle with his campaigning ability, and fear another cycle and possibly another presidency with a less than formidable communicator, but he does seem to be getting better, and and Iowa top three could reinvigorate his campaign.
This one dropped the brown acid.
A lunatic and a dolt.
I predicted about a year ago that Romney would win the nomination and Obama would win reeelection. I was hoping to be wrong. I think I was right regardless of what happens in the early primary states.
Did you just now look in the mirror?
Romney just came out in support of Gays in the military.
Of these 4 bozos, I would go for Perry. He seems to backtracked a bit in his handling of illegal immigration and at least he is not pushing newtonian amnesty. Newt is the most unacceptable because of his amnesty fanatics.
I hope Bachmann or Santorum would be the surprise finisher though.
I was a Cain supporter, and was really turned off by the rhetoric of some of the Perry supporters. I DO like his current batch of ads, and he is getting a second look, along with Santorum.
I was also supporting Cain. I know what you mean about some Perry supporters..kinda like some Paul supporters. I actually sat and listened to a Perry telephone “chat”. There are a lot of things that he says that I do like.
I have to be honest..still don’t know who I’m gonna vote for.
And you think that will stop him from getting the nomination?
It will help but the 40+ states that he is going to lose to Gingrich will finish him off.
Put me in the Gingrich camp.
Which is it?
You Texas People are all alike. Give them a Texan and they will back them to the hilt.
The Mexican War is over. The Alamo fell. We won. Its o.k. now to criticize a fellow Texan.
gingrich doesn’t have the resources for a protracted primary battle. furthermore, the dems are going to spoil our primaries. they know exactly which candidate to vote for. If romney loses, they win and if he wins, they win. Furthermore, the longer the battle goes on- and it will go on and on and on- the more divided we will become. finally, ther’s a strong possibility of a third party candidate cpming in and spoiling the general election.
Leftists pumping Paul for all they are worth.
Perry will be making a comeback off his bottom.
