Clearly people like him, but I've yet to talk to anyone who does. Frankly, I just don't see the appeal. Isn't it brutally obvious that in office he'd be G.W. Bush 2.0 and that if he got the nomination the election would just be more or less a repeat of 2008? So who seriously likes Rick Perry, and why?

50% of Americans really wouldn't mind another Bush-style neocon, especially when the alternative is Obama.

Ron Paul, Gary Johnson, and Newt Gingrich are all better alternatives.

I'm not sure about Newt, but Rick Perry is a blithering idiot, and puts religion ahead of reality. Like you said, W. 2.0...

There are a few people on my Facebook friends list who love hi, a few others would vote for whoever gets elected to beat Obama, others are supporting Perry because the media says he is "most electable".
You didn't build that-Obama
It's pretty lazy to quote things you disagree with, call it stupid and move on, rather than arguing with the person. -000ike

What why Newt, especially since you list Paul, and Johnson among your favorites?

He's the new guy. When Bachman announced she was running, her numbers jumped because she was the new girl. His numbers will eventually fade and it will likely go back to Romney.

I'm from Texas. I'll say of Perry that there are desirable and undesirable aspects about him. Mannerisms aside, his political history implies that he is not a carbon copy of Bush. Overall though, he is still tainted with social conservatism and an attitude toward science that would complete America's long, meandering journey into being a scientific backwater.
