    After watching Perry's comments about Bernake yesterday--one has to wonder if we have a loose canon on board the GOP candidate list. He sure could have done better without the Hoopla about what Texas would have done to Bernake-:cuckoo: While Republicans may like the dragon fire coming out of Perry's mouth--this same talk will send Independents RUNNING. And as we all know by now--it's Independents that determine elections.

    What is amazing to me--is that Perry announced his candidacy this last Saturday--he hasn't participated in any debates--yet a "real clear politics poll"--show him leading the pack against candidates that have participated in the debates. IOW--we really don't know much about Rick Perry. This to me--is very worrisome. We certainly don't need a candidate that is capable of self-destructing--and or is capable of beating himself in a general run-off with Barack Obama--insuring a nightmare of another 4 years of Obama NOT running this country.

    We have been there--done that before. Irrational National behavior--and that is exactly why Barack Obama is sitting in the oval office today.

    We have lots and lots of time to determine who the best candidate will be. There is no need to rush in and jump on any candidates band-wagon. My last comment is Rick Perry being from Texas will be painted with a G.W Bush brush--there is no getting around that--even though I have heard they don't get along with one another--it's coming--no doubt about it. And we all know that the name G.W Bush is still toxic to millions in this country.

    For those that are interested here is a good article regarding Rick Perry's past--which is a good indication of what he'll do in the future.

    What exactly are you talking about Oreo.

    Paul said the exact same thing.

    So is Dr. Paul a loose cannon too?

    Paul says it like it is. While I disagree with some of his policies--a lot I agree with. Paul is not out there calling out the Fed Chairman for treason--and him doing that--dragon fire speech may rally the Republicans--but it sure won't do anything for independents in this country. IOW--Perry could have said the same thing in a much more effective manner and still got his point across.

    And it's the independents in this country that win elections.

    Into PC---:cuckoo: Again it's not what Rick Perry said--It is HOW HE SAID it that is of concern. If you watch the video of Perry making these comments in Iowa--you can see that the crowd didn't know what he was talking about--they didn't laugh--they did NOT know where he was coming from. Now if you think that wins elections--Good Luck--LOL
