Romney vs Gingrich
« on: September 14, 2011, 04:19:33 PM »

Who would you prefer to be the Republican presidential nominee?

FWI, no one cares if you prefer Obama.  Try to stay on topic.

Perry sounds like less of an idiot.

But then again, if Romney manages to get on the ticket, it'll be easier for the current president to continue to be as such...

I didn't say his name.

I don't understand what you mean by that.  I have heard dumb comments from Bachmann, Huntsman, and Paul, but I haven't heard anything idiotic from either Perry or Romney.

Does that mean you think Romney is less likely to beat Obama in a presidential election then Perry?

Pollwise, Romney has the best chance of beating Obama.

Okay, I just found out a bit more about Perry.

My mind is changed, and I'm currently betting on Romney for the primaries.

For one, he's accusing Romney of being Obama.

What don't you like about that?  Do you think it is untrue or do you disagree that being Obama is a negative thing?
(To be fair, Obama did say that his health care law is based off of Romneycare.)

I think that it's untrue, and for a Republican, it's nearly slander.

Being governor of one of the most liberal states in the America, Romney has similar beilefs and policies as Obama.  Romney's rivals like to point out those similarities because being compared to Obama makes a Republican candidate less popular.  Romney does the same thing when he points out that Obama and Perry have the same beliefs on immigration.

So... I don't like Perry for the wrong reasons? Irrationally, he seems like a self-centered creep. It's not something you can graph or analyze, but it's there.

Frankly, yes.  You shouldn't dislike a politician for acting like a politician.  Perry is better then most politicains because he is willing to defend ideas that are unpopular.  Compare that to Obama who changes his views every time there is a new poll.

Irrationally, he seems like a self-centered creep. It's not something you can graph or analyze, but it's there.
Liberals tend to deeply dislike Perry in the same way that conservatives deeply dislike Obama, so I am not surprised that you dislike Perry's personality without any real reason.

I might have a real reason, like an objection to some of the things he says, but for now, I can't isolate it.

Surely that isn't enough. Eating babies is an unpopular idea; would it make Perry a superior politician if he defended that?
