    This is a lot of media bumping uglies...

    Perry's biggest problem is that the ESTABLISHMENT of the GOP, the guys who want Romney because he rows with them at the country club, old bean, doesn't really like the notion that the rank and file, the rabble, might actually realize, "Hey, they've got the money, but we've got the numbers."

    This is why they are scared shitless of the TEA Party. I think if left to the establishment GOP, they'd have cut a deal with the Community Organizer on the debt... So in many ways, the GOP is going through a transformation.

    I think this was the fight for the soul of the party that almost happened in 2008, with the grassroots Christian working folks backing Huckabee and the Establishment getting behind Romney (R-Kolob). When the establishment figured the couldn't foist Romney on the masses because of his elitism and crazy religion, they turned to McCain and lost.

    Perry won't take the beating Huckabee did. The Talk Radio types like Limbaugh can't go after Perry the way they went after Huck.

    Exactly! The Bushes can make or break him. If they want to, they can probably dig more more dirt than the Dems. The establishment GOP is afraid that is Perry wins the Nomination, they may as well concede to the Tea Party. This coild be a battle for the soul of the GOP....EXCITING! :clap2:
