    This is awesome news. With Obama being the worst president in nearly a century, it has been depressing that we have such a low caliber of candidates running, and so many really quality guys have opted out.

    I didn't know he was 61; he's older than I thought.

    He would likely sail to the nomination. I think that when people see just how intrusive his brand of government is, when they realize he used to be a Democrat fairly recently, and that they realize there is a lack of any gavitas, he will lose to Obama.

    I guess we'll know on Wednesday next November though.

    I thought he was 59, but apparently, he's 61.

    Sorry, I just don't see how Obama can win in 2012.

    I don't know anyone who is still really enthusiastic about the guy.

    Yesterday, I was watching Chris Matthews. Which is kind of like watching the former Iraqi Propaganda Minister claiming that there are no troops in Baghdad when the tanks are rolling in behind him.

    Matthews surrounds himself with four liberal journalists, and they all agreed that Obama ran on "Hope" in 2008, but he is going to have to run on "Fear" in 2012.

    In short, his whole campaign is going to be based on, "Well, things are bad, but they'll be worse if the Republicans get back in."

    Sorry, can't see how things can get worse than they are now, considering this is the worst I've seen in my lifetime of some 50 years.

    Jeebus will finally tell the Secessionist to run for the Christian States of Godtopia? Will he jettison the rest of the godless states or will he annex them all as one big country of Texas..

    Honestly, if the best argument you have against Perry is a comment about secession he didn't actually make, then you are already starting behind.

    And once again, considering that this country is about 85% Christian, do you really think attacking Jesus is a smart move? (And I say this as an agnostic.)
