    Thank God, Perry will be stepping in it back in Texas when he quits the race. He is dumber than a Bachmann.

    We do our best to keep folks like Rick Perry here in Texas where he won't be noticed too much, but sometimes even the dumbest bulls will stray out of the pasture. About all we can do is round 'em up and bring 'em back to the ole A&M pasture.

    This won't hurt Perry. The nomination is not his to lose.

    Perry is always stepping on landmines. Lucky him they have not ripped him off!

    He's just stealing what Ron Paul's been saying for years.

    I wonder what Mr.s Perry has to say about the criticism of her husband now. I don't think the worst criticism ever was because of his religious background.or beliefs. It's him.

    cutting the epa would create jobs –cleaning oil off ducks and shorelines–investigating why your house burn,t down because of the drinking water–why your kids have three arms

    Maybe he should borrow Sarah Palin's pen and write some notes on his hand next time.
