    Perry not running again for Governor

    Although clearly another presidential run is very possible. Is this guy wacky or does he really have a chance?

    He needs a major image overhaul if he wants to run for the White House.

    Oh, let him run. He'll provide a good look at what's really driving the Republican Party these days...

    I think he would fit in great with the presidents we're used to having.

    He was going to lose to Greg Abbott anyway. So best to drop out, no?
    The consistent factor of all of your dissatisfying relationships and failures is you.

    I am a bit surprised by this. I believe that the last go around he proved that he just doesn't have the mental ability to handle an election, and with the popularity he has in Texas he could have grabbed another term pretty easily.

    There is a time to laugh and a time not to laugh, and this is not one of them.

    I can't recall ever seeing any politician exposed like Perry was. Average debate performances probably put him right up with Romney, maybe beating him.
