Why did Rick Perry fail?

It might have been sleep apnea.

Rick Perry's problem was that he ran his campaign almost as if he were running for governor of Texas.

When you're running for President you can't keep mentioning your own state. It makes people think you can't relate to anyone else's problems. And with Rick Perry, it also fed into people's negative stereotypes about Texas.


When I first heard about the governor I got the impression he was business friendly and keen on fighting entrenched special interest groups. That was his brand. Then he decided to sell himself as the most socially conservative candidate, and my interest turned into frustration.

The story was probably leaked to help rehabilitate Rick Perry's image.


Someone who would run for President when they have mental issues, who was planning on battling Obama and having control of our nuclear weapons, is disgraceful. He should be expelled from the Republican party, expelled from office, and do time in jail.
