Rick Perry is the only legitimate shot we have to defeat Obama....
or perhaps Romney ... but again ... if you want someone who is already proving his salt by leading a state to success... Rick Perry is the one!

Anybody that would vote for Obama is an utter fool. Especially someone whose first choice is RP. Without meaning to sound insulting, I wonder about your thinking process. Why would you want more of these failed policies?
You say "Your goal isn't to find a good president; it's to simply defeat the standing one", yet it appears that your goal isn't to find a good president, it's to simply vote anti-Republican.edit on 2-9-2011 by mishigas because: (no reason given)

I believe I'd have to vote California over Texas. They have Moonbeam and a herd of cats in Sacramento fiddling with things like:
Babysitters to get Benefits??
While their state deals with:
California grapples with 25 Billion dollar "Budget Issue"
Rick Perry is certainly a character and his own speeches are quickly driving me to support anyone running against him within the GOP....assuming Dr. Paul doesn't take it all the way of course. While California can really spend time and precious resources they don't have on matters as outright trivial as this, they earn the top prize. Illinois probably follows a very CLOSE runner up.
You think a person who chose Obama over McCain is an "utter fool"? I would say the opposite.
