22. No, I'm not. I've provided three cites in this thread that disagree with your assertion.
These cites say he never "dropped out" because he hadn't officially declared, and wasn't going to, until he was on the ballot in all fifty states. When he "dropped back in" (as reported by the press) he was in fact declaring for the first time. He "suspended his campaign" when that business with his daughter came up. The media did not report his activities accurately, so say these cites. This isn't out of my ass, these are written citations.

Please read the cites, and the underlined portions, specifically. They refute your assertions. What you say, and what these citations say, are two different things.

In any event, that isn't the primary point. You said he didn't intend to win. Only Perot knows for sure what he meant when he said he was suspending his campaign, and if he really "meant it" when he said he wouldn't officially declare until he was on the ballot in all fifty states.

But you don't spend tens of millions of dollars of your own dough if you aren't in it to win it. In 96, with taxpayer dollars, maybe, but not in 92.

You're telling me what you remember, or what you think you remember, but you aren't providing any citations of your own in contravention.

My recollections and cites differ from yours. You haven't changed my mind by repeating the same thing over and over again.
