The Race is On?

Latest CNN e-mail.

I don't think he'll make the cut.

The announcement by the Republican governor opens the door to speculation that Perry will make another bid for the White House in 2016.

Perry is the longest-serving governor in Texas history. He assumed the governorship in December 2000, when George W. Bush stepped down to become president. Perry was elected to full four-year terms in 2002, 2006 and 2010.

He won't be the Republican nominee. His lame effort last time should have told him that. Perry has always seemed to me to be a victim of his own ego which isn't uncommon among the political ranks.

Bill Clinton was booed off the stage of the 1988 Democrat Convention.

In 1992 he was the nominee.

Just sayin'.

Bill Clinton is a lot of things, but moron isn't one of them.

If the GOP wants to lose again, then it should by all means nominate Perry.

Mission Accomplished.
Thanks from poet and Tony

GW won, twice.

Obama is a moron, he won, twice. By visiting all 57 states. Plus all the 'corpsemen' voted for him, especially in Chicago.

The 2012 GOP primary race....

Now the race is on
and here comes Newt up the backstretch
Bachman is going to the inside
Palin is holding back
Cain's trying not to fall
Perry's out of the running
Santorum's scratched for another's sake
The race is on and it looks like Romney
And the winner loses all
Thanks from Tony and RNG

Look, maybe no-one's qualified to be President. Maybe...some sort of lottery drawing should be made out of the electoral rolls and just put some normal person in the Oval Orafice???
