    I noticed you didn't comment after I posted this; did you miss it?

    Looks like Romney isn't the only flip flopper in the field this year.

    Looks like Perry did a good job for Gore, Al resembles the the nasty stuff that gets stuck to your shoe in a seedy west Hollywood peep show and Bush was our President for 8 years.
    :clap2::clap2::clap2: Nice undercover work by Perry if you ask me.

    Can't say I disagree with your assessment of Bore. But the transparent flip flopping whenever it is politically expedient isn't likely to play when these skeletons in his closet are brought out into the light.

    Sam Donaldson: "Mr. President, in talking about the continuing recession tonight, you have blamed mistakes in the past and you have blamed the Congress. Does any of the blame belong to you?"

    Ronald Reagan: "Yes because for many years I was a Democrat."

    According to wiki...he switched in 1954...13 years prior to becoming the Governor of California and what, 26 years prior to becoming President? I doubt it was for political expediency..especially in California that the great Ronald Reagan switched parties. Its humorous when someone compares Rick Perry to Ronald Reagan.

    I have long stated that Reagan shouldn't be on Mt. Rushmore...he should get his own mountain. As history moves further away from his Presidency, one can only admire it more in retrospect.

    I count my visit to the Library as one of my favorite experiences in recent memory

    ****Edit...the RR Presidential Library that is...LOL

    Perry switched 23 years ago, right? That was my only point. A lot of people have a change of heart/wisdom as they age.

    Perry switched while he was in politics.... again according to WIKI:

    According to WIKI, Reagan switched allegiances in the 1950's then became governor in 1967...

    I may be wrong (WIKI is often wrong) but I don't see where he took funding from the DNC, ran as a Democrat and, presumably some voted for him believing he shared their values, then swapped parties.

    Also, in California where Hollywood is, it took some courage to switch to the GOP would you agree? Becoming a Republican in Texas is something along the same lines of the Colts offensive line endorsing Peyton Manning for Quarterback...you'd probably be kicked off the team if you were not on board.

    While I would agree that there can be true to life changes of heart ; it looks really expedient when it is done while one is in office, after taking contributions, after portraying yourself one way to win an election...etc... etc...
