CHARLESTON, S.C.-Declaring that it is“time to get America working again,” Gov. Rick Perry officially declared his presidential candidacy Saturday, telling a crowd in this key primary state that he will run to challenge President Obama in 2012. In front of a crowd of 600 at the Francis Marion Hotel, Perry used his first speech as a candidate to brag about job creation in Texas under his leadership and argued he could dramatically improve the American economy if elected president.

Regarding this announcement:
The good news: He probably won't be my governor anymore.
The bad news: he just might get enough crazies to vote for him that he becomes the next destroyer of the USA.
There is no need for me to go into the reasons to NOT vote for this clown...there is a really good thread laying out the reasoning here: www.abovetopsecret.com...
I surely hope that those that dislike Obama don't rush to judgement and vote for Perry solely because he is NOT Obama. Obama may be bad to many, but perry would be worse....Obama is still the lesser of the evils.

I still will not vote any mainstream candidates anymore.
I'm liking Ron Paul more and more. I can't stand Romney. He's the cliche standard. Out with the establishment which hasn't been listening to its' people.
