There is not one truth in this, and no, I don't support Perry. I did, but he let his media "handlers" control him and he quit speaking accomplishments, his record and how he'll apply it at the national level. He comes across as false and untrustworthy as a result. And yes, debate ability is important. Many citizens aren't going to pay attention before the presidential debates, the moderators are all going to be Leftist spokesmen for Obama and the Democrat Party. The Republican nominee has to be able and willing to expose them for what they are as well as pound Obama's willingness and desire to crush the US economy and make us a second rate country.
