Rick Perry-The Giant Cake Eater- Shows Up on Polls But is Undeclared Candidate

25 July 2011 at 1:52:30 PM

I've seen a bunch of people talking about how Rick Perry is doing on Intrade. Except that Rick Perry is NOT SERIOUS. He has NOT declared his candidacy so why in the world would anyone want to pay attention to how he does agains other DECLARED candidates until he gets out of that wallflower chair on the sidelines and mans up? Perry just wants to continue to avoid running the state of Texas while gallivanting around the country spending campaign cash which has to be curbed in at the federal level.

People are so gullible. Now he is dropping hints that he might declare after The Response (which he may not even go to, HIS event). So I call that a Cake Eater. He wants to pretend and make it seem like he's running for president without having the scrutiny DECLARED CANDIDATES get  or to be taken seriously by the OTHER DECLARED candidates who probably don't want to elevate him in any ones eyes now since he can't even get on the Iowa Straw Poll ballot because, um, HE IS NOT A DECLARED CANDIDATE.

As the Texas Tribune says.

Perry no longer has to worry about straw poll expectations because the Republican Party decided not to place his name on the ballot.  Had he been on the ballot, other campaigns and the media could have rightfully placed some expectations on him, but all of that vanished when they left him and others off the ballot." Iowa GOP Clears Major Obstacle for Perry, The Iowa Republican

From CommentaryMagazine.

A pro-Rick Perry group is taking advantage of a new rule in the Iowa straw poll that allows voters to write in a candidate. GrowPAC will air radio ads in Iowa urging voters to write in Perry’s name in the Ames straw poll next month. The move would–if the ad works–help Perry in two ways: it would reveal public support for Perry without having to meet expectations, as he would if his name were officially on the ballot, and it will drain support from Perry’s conservative rivals.

It’s a smart strategy that won’t cost Perry a dime.

Unfairness built into the election system. Perhaps in the future ALL candidates ought to game the system this way.

Rick Perry should remain an undeclared candidate.  He has no business in a more elevated political seat than what he has currently ( & he only is allowed that seat, so as to allow him to go through another election, so we Texans can get him out of office ).

This man is a mohair-sam to the umtenth degree.  He is a misaligned, untrustworthy, and manipulative politician.  He is not capable of managing his own house, much less the state of Texas, or more importantly, the U.S. of A. ....anyone ( echo's of Palin, Bachman mentalities ) who "hear's a calling" to run for office, should be moved to the closest Mental Health Diagnositic Center for furhter evaluation and referral to a safer environment.
