I wrote in August that Rick Perry will self- destruct within 30 days. His prospects for the presidency were as phony as the fantasy of a two-person race was false. Perry is a phony conservative who is not conservative. He is a pay-for-play politician who gobbled up Obama stimulus like a hound dog eating a bone, and created oceans of new government jobs in Texas while his big donors mysteriously received big government contracts. The Texas deficit ballooned and the Texas jobless rate doubled on Rick Perry's watch.

I will not speculate about the reasons for Rick Perry' s strange, weird and incoherent debate performance. Major new negative stories about Perry will soon emerge in the media. Trust me. Perry will drop out long before the year ends. If he dropped out today Ron Paul could well be in second place. Will pundits say it is a two-man race between Romney and Paul?


The Hill is a very trustworthy source of information and this particular article surprised me because the website is for inside 'DC' politics. Of course I know this is from the blog section but everyone who works there is part of the beltway media so if anyone would be very critical of Ron Paul and most likely to ignore his candidacy it would be the people here. Yet that is not the case, they foresee Rick Perry dropping out (although I believe he will continue into the primaries) and Ron Paul filling second place.

Much like the entrance of Michele Bachmann which propelled her to first place after the debate in June, Rick Perry had the same entrance. He shot up in the polls but now he is slowly coming back down. It will not be long until his campaign is about as newsworthy as Bachmann's is now. So that will leave the number two man in charge, which has been slowly crawling up in the polls: Ron Paul. This could turn into a Romney versus Paul campaign for the nomination which I think would be best for the party and this country.

Maybe in a fantasy world Paul would be in Second. But in reality he doesnt have a chance in hades of even coming close.

Paul will be ignored. If he is even remotely given a media push, then obviously that will raise red flags.

You guys are a bunch of Negative Nancys. If Perry drops out, as it is now, Paul would be second. It would be a lot harder to skip over who's in 2nd, compared to who's in 3rd or 4th. The numbers would speak for themselves. They can only ignore him so long.

That being said, where are Perry's votes going to go if he drops out? Who would a Perry fan back 2nd?

They will bump up another front runner to debate Paul before they ever let him debate Romney. Be it Cain or Palin.. someone will fill Perry's place, that's how it was always meant to be. Perry was never a serious candidate.

Did anyone ever think that Rick Perry had a chance in a real world situation?

Maybe on a reality show... but to have this idiot run our country would be a disgrace to our country.

After seeing how Rick Perry performed at the last few debates, I don't see how anybody could still support him.

Rick Perry fail

But it seems that the corporate media is hopping on the "Rick Perry sucks!" bandwagon. FOX, MSNBC, and CNN are seen in that Jon Stewart clip basically flat out saying that he did terrible at the debates. So if he's supposed to be the next-in-line Bilderberg puppet, why is the media not backing him 110%?

Maybe the plan was to make it a two person race, have Rick Perry look like an idiot, and then Mitt Romney wins and the Fed goes on to live another 4 years?

The Paul fans are quick to add up straw poll votes unless they aren't in his favor. Herman Cain just won Florida's and there wasn't even a thread on ATS about it. If you look at the non-straw polls out there it looks like this for September:

Perry: 27.2
Romney: 21.5
Paul: 7.7
Palin: 7.5
Bachman: 7.5
Gingrich: 6.8
Cain: 5.5
Santorum: 2.2
Huntsman: 1.2

So, yeah, Paul is right up there all right! He has 1/3 of Romney and 1/4th of Perry, running neck and neck with Palin, who isn't even running, Bachmnan and Gingrich. If Perry does drop out I can't see his supporters suddenly going for Paul.

Ron Paul is a ten percenter. It's a very passionate ten percent, but that's where he will stay.

We think just alike!



You would think the Bilderbergers would have picked someone better than this moron. It almost makes one think he was put up by them as a useful idiot so as to advance another candidate who would otherwise have lost.

Yes and based on those numbers, if Rick Perry drops out, who will be in second? Ron Paul. But he has a huge gap to close, so hopefully the next few debates won't continue to be a Perry/Romney-fest and people will get to hear what he has to say on lots of key issues. The clock is ticking....

Trust me.. Ron Paul has a ton better shot than someone like say...... Santorum...

You know I am so tired of hearing people say that Ron Paul (or any of the lower tier candidates for that matter) are un-electable...

No one is un-electable if you vote for them....

This is not a Soviet campaign where Pravda-like pundits treat certain candidates as though they do not exist.


Actually, that's exactly how it is.

We can only hope/wish for.

No one is un-electable if you vote for them but Paul on the Republican ticket is a hard sell to the Republicans in the primaries/caucuses.

A bitter taste in my mouth when I say Santorum will spiral up for this party (next to Romney)....

I got excited for a second, I thought you meant he actually dropped out.
jessejames, that sounds like a possible strategy they would use, but it might not even matter. Look at this thread if you want a laugh:

There are some polls that have Paul first.

I HATE when I hear random people on the street say Ron Paul is "un-electable" or "un-presidential". That just shows how stupid and easily convinced people are. Nobody woke up on their own one day and thought, "Hmmm....you know what, Ron Paul is not presidential." Shut the #$^& up! Anybody who says that was recently listening to the mainstream media, heard it, and say it because it makes them look informed. Nothing is worse or more annoying than somebody who talks like they know their potential presidents when they don't.

I will slap the next lady in the face who says, "hmmm... yea.. i like him, but I don't think hes presidential."
Like you know you stupid C$%T.

TPTB are already formulating their replacement for Perry, since he effed up the golden spoon they handed him.
His name is Governor Christie. If Perry drops, Christie replaces him, and they will have the 2 "frontrunners" in the gop primary, as well as Obama as their democrat. It's win win for them.

I'm starting to wonder if Jeb Bush will fill the vacuum. On the down side for repubs, he would simplify Obama's campaign strategy. On the plus side, despite his family ties, he comes across a lot better than any of the other candidates. Plus, he delivers Florida, a huge starting point. I wonder how much he hates his brother.
