So, Rick Perry's a RINO? I guess we'll see whether Republican voters agree.

I would guess an opportunist. A person who adapts actions, decisions, etc., to effectiveness regardless of the sacrifice of ethical principles: an extreme opportunist who always thinks the ends justify the means.

Sounds like Obama...

It's a long list

That sounds like "politician" to me.

He's a neo-con, just like Bush.

Neoconservatism is/was essentially a foreign-policy position. It's result was the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan (and Iran if they could have pulled it off). I can't say that I've paid much attention to Perry, but it sounds to me as if he's much more in the anti-government, right-wing populist camp.

However, RP would pull a lot of Democrat votes... Ask all of your Democrat friends that know of Ron Paul these questions...

Would you vote for Ron Paul or Mitt
Would you vote for Ron Paull or Rick
Would you vote for Ron Paul or Obama

Watch as an odd amount of Democrats want RP over all the other three people listed. I'm amazed when I talk to Democrats (even gay ones) and they say it is a strong possibility they would vote Ron Paul over Obama in the GE... Yet the rest scare them on the Republican side.
