    Perry likens South Carolina stand to Alamo
    ABC Local ^ | January 8, 2012 | Associated Press



    SPARTANBURG, SC -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Sunday that he's not giving up on the race for the Republican presidential nomination, comparing himself to the fighters who rode back into the Alamo knowing there would be no reinforcements coming.

    Perry returned to South Carolina for his first campaign stop in the state after a disappointing finish in last Tuesday's Iowa caucuses. At his first rally he addressed a crowd of about 300 at a packed Spartanburg burger joint.

    "We're not quitting on America. We're not quitting on this race," Perry said.

    He told of two South Carolinians who fought at the Alamo during Texas' fight for independence from Mexico. "That's what this election is about," he said. "Men and women who love America enough that they will sacrifice whatever it takes to put America on track."

    The fact that Perry is even still in the race tells you how rigged it is.

    The man's a walking disaster.

    I agree. The thing is, the majority doesn't want ROmney, but as long as the oppossition remains fragmented, he'll probably get the nomination.
