A Katy Perry presidency is more likely.

The real problem with a Rick Perry 2016 presidential run: abortion
If the Texas governor contests the GOP nomination, it will be as a firm pro-life candidate - provoking a bitter referendum on choice


Oh, Anna Marie.  You are far too smart to think that:

1)  He's got what it takes to make a plausible run again
2)  His dopey position on abortion is sophisticated enough to nudge the debate a millimeter in any direction

basemetal: Rick Perry is proof that Texas sucks.


Eh, the thing about the governorship of Texas is that it can't really do much of anything, we usually shove someone in there that's amiable and fairly OK to listen to, but that we kind of want staying the hell out of actual power.

Perry was actually a bigger influence on Texas politics as lieutenant governor, when he had a tie-breaking vote and executive decisions he could make without 2/3 of the state senate's approval.  Not that our politics isn't a bit farked at the moment, but it's not actually his fault (much as he seems to enjoy claiming "credit"), it's more about there being a Senate quorum with just the number of sitting GOPers.

//Well, that and state politics are always kinda pants-on-head no matter where you are.  TX's are actually something of an improvement over CA's since I moved here from a sanity angle, even if I find some of the prevailing positions more personally objectionable.

As a heterosexual while male non-practicing Christian...I think I would seriously just leave the f*cking country if a douchenozzle like Perry ever got elected. At that point I'd have to assume the American people are too f*cking dumb to live among them anymore.

And yes I have the means of becoming a citizen in another country.

The hard truth that the GOP seems bitterly unwilling to accept is that none of their far right conservative/batsh*t insane candidates will ever be nominated to be the GOP candidate let alone the POTUS. The best they can do is get a VP candidate like Palin. (God can you imagine what would have happened had Palin somehow become President? I shudder to think of it.)

The nomination goes through California, New York, Illinois, Washington, Oregon, Ohio, Pennsylvania, all the other blue states...Perry may get Texas but he'll never get Ohio unless some really poor choices are in the running with him.

2016 will be Jeb Bush followed by a line of Christian and ultraconservative assknobs, one of which may or may not be VP. They'll go to that convention full of old white people and act like the whole nation is with them as they bring the sob speeches about family values and anti-abortion and they'll push as many Latinos and Black people in their party as they can muster.

And when it's time to run for president, Jeb will move left to try and secure the moderates. And some people will believe him, because people are morons.

Doesn't matter to me, I won't vote for whatever dumbass they select.

I think some of that is that some of the stuff he did that got him all unpopular was just kind of the government working as intended, the restrictions on domestic freedoms and the domestic surveillance and Gitmo especially.  After watching the guy we don't reflexively assume is either wrong or an idiot get us involved in several wars in the middle east, spy on us, and fail to close Gitmo (or try particularly hard to do so for that matter) I think we've got some distance and are starting to see Bush as the mediocre president that failed to handle some bad shiat occurring as well as he could have, rather than the author of every bad thing happening from the collapse of the WTC to mid 2010.

Lost Thought 00: Tremolo: You underestimate that farker at your own risk.

Nah, he's only "popular" in Texas in contrast to the other major contenders, most of whom are Tea Party outright instead of occasionally pandering to the TP idiots like Perry.  About 3/4+ of the state actively dislikes him, primarily because the sole job of the governor is to not make the state look bad and Perry keeps failing hard at that.

I want this to not be true, but I can't think of another moderate with the standing to compete in a GOP primary. Christie? He's Christian - Catholic? - and kind of an assknob, but he's also not a complete moron.

// at this rate, Jindal is looking kind of moderate (he's not, of course - but he's LOOKING like it, which is all that matters)
// yes, Christie once hugged Obama, and has thus far refused to call him an uppity blah socialist occupier Kenyan usurper Muslim emptysuit dictator, but he's still technically a "moderate" Republican eligible to compete in 2016

CA is pants-on-head retarded because of the supermajority requirement to pass a budget. They had a budget crisis for 6 YEARS in part because of that. And now WA (where I'm currently residing) has passed the same supermajority requirement. We're doomed, and WA is already totally farked up financially.

Bush was a terrible president. Terrible. Charles Barkley Terrible. History will label him as such. The only reason he's less unpopular now is because the economy has improved under his predecessor, he has been relatively quiet (he knows deep down he was a f*ckup), and because he wasn't allowed to f*ck up the government more since 2006 when the Democrats wrested control of the legislative agenda.

I don't blame him for the economic collapse of 2000-2001 (that's all Greenspan) but he cut taxes and blew up the debt, took a blind eye to economic problems and he hurt our standing in the world. Two wars have been VERY costly, the economy is still recovering, and the precedents set in the war on terror still have implications today (even though I think Obama's been complicit in these undertakings). Gitmo should forever be the stone around his neck.  He's a war criminal and should have been sent to the Hague.

I don't care that the guy is an average person or likable. Plenty of charmers are dicks.

What wars did Obama get us involved in? And how is the fact that Reps (and some Dems) have blocked his every attempt to close Gitmo his fault, let alone equal to Bush starting the whole shebang?

I would say the Bush administration set the tone of this country's response to 9/11, and that a lot of what is still happening under Obama's watch (which I don't necessarily excuse him for) wouldn't be considered acceptable by the majority of this country if the Bush administration had reacted differently (or perhaps prevented in the first place, but that's another discussion). Starting the War on Terror is one of the worst paths we could've gone down. I get that it was mostly Cheney and the other evil lunatics directing the administration, but it was still Bush's boat. This is the government "working as intended" because Bush wrote the instruction manual.

bdub77: he has been relatively quiet (he knows deep down he was a f*ckup)


I honestly think Bush never actually wanted to be President, and he did it because he wanted to impress his father, and his father's cronies needed a personable face to hide behind as they conducted their shenanigans. Once he was out of office, he was so happy he didn't have to be president anymore, he just kind of faded away. I think that's one of the reasons he hasn't commented on politics, especially Obama, since leaving office: he simply doesn't care.
 
2013-07-10 12:25:35 PM
The other thing I'd like to add is that the media is telling you Bush is more popular now. That just reinforces your views on his popularity. Americans are sheep with zero attention span and are easy to move into the 'I guess he's not so bad' department.

The best thing that can be said about Bush is that the US didn't completely collapse under him.
