(Guest post from Gary Russell.)

My initial thoughts on the candidacy of Rick Perry are well documented. I’ve been accused of having a “man crush” for (soon-to-be) candidate Perry.

“Why?” you ask?

In perusing Daniel Bassali’s most excellent PD post concerning “The Front Runner Nobody Likes”, I came to the sudden conclusion that this race may likely come down to one key issue that is vital to our country’s very survival: Dogs.

Daniel briefly alluded to Romney’s “dog problem”, as related in this article: Romney’s Cruel Canine Vacation

Oh, the horrors! Conservatives, we cannot allow such a man to represent us! We must all unite behind a candidate who stands UP for our four legged friends.

Thankfully, our prayers have been answered! Rick Perry is the man.

    I just heard Obama might drop Biden in favor of Michael Vick.

    • Red State Eddie

      I feel sorry for Michael Vick.

    Senator Pay Moynahan once said..
    “You are entitled to your own opinions, not your own facts”

    Disagreement does not constitute one to claim opinions as facts, Troy.

    • Troy La Mana

      They are facts when you see it with your own eyes.

    Like most people on here, I’ve learned not to take Troy seriously at all….every argument he makes against Romney falls flat once one does a li’l research on his claims against M.R. – I think he’s got some secret agenda against Romney that he’s not confessing….maybe he doesn’t like his hair? He’s a Mormon? He shot more varmints than Troy? He’s got more money? LOL

    • Troy La Mana

      You refuse to face facts when shown.

  • Brian H

    Troy. I completely disagree.

    If Obama trying to link Romney to Obamacare, a failed health care policy, is Obama’s best bullet in his arsenal then Obama has serious serious problems. There is nothing new to that argument and it has already been tirelessly tied to Romney’s neck.

    If that argument is not enough to take down Romney in a Republican primary why would it possibly work in a general election? Seriously. Is Obama gonna say “my fantastic health care initiative was created by my opponent”? Or, is Obama gonna say “my failed health care policy was created by my opponent”?

    There are MANY MANY other issues on jobs, economics, stocks, debt, taxes, spending, Libya, etc etc that top Obama-Care as a top issue.

    If you watch the clip you posted you will that the President is completely on the defense regarding his own plan, regardless of who did it first.

    I know Romney is the horse we love to hate, but, he is a solid solid horse. I seriously doubt that there are too many among the Obama team that would prefer to face Perry or Bachmann over Mitt Romney, Troy.

  • Troy La Mana

    I’ve warned you about this and now it has come true.

    Obama wants Romney to win the nomination so he can say this every time the subject of ObamaCare comes up.

    I am less worried of Perry shooting a coyote and more concerned with Perry shooting off at the mouth.

  • Alaina

    It’s Texas and he was born and raised in West Texas… what do you expect him to do when he sees a coyote?

      “Meep Meep!”
