About two weeks ago the media wouldnt shut up about this guy from Texas who was considering running for the republican bid. Well, since then he tossed his hat in, and now the media just wont stop flappin their lips about him. Seems during the debat the camera sure loved him, and he was asked alot of easy questions intended to make him look tough and all that. But who is this guy that I am being told is a front runner??? So far as I am aware he has made only a very limited few public appearances since he announced, but he is in the lead??? Who is making these decisions?? I had never heard of Rick Perry untill a couple months ago, when Maddow was making fun of his Jesus fest/Political event and all the right wing religious extremists in that direction. Never heard him speak at any debth about any of the following issues which I deam important: Foriegn Policy Peace in the Middle East China Minimum Wage Economy Education Immigration Help the Poor Enviornment Rampant Corruption Debt Monetary Policy Role of President Iran Military Funding Global Empire Food Subsidy's To name a few. Can somone fill me in???
