Paging Ross Perot ! Paging Ross Perot ! Please pick up the phone?
With these huge deficits that the Republicans are handing down to future generations, we could use another Ross Perot at this time. Larry King? Call him up?

"Ross, what do you think of these huge deficits that the Republicans are now running in our government?"

"Well, Larry, we need to look under that hood again. These people are spending like drunk sailors and leaving the bill to our children and grandchildren. I thought they had everything under control in 2000. They were running a huge surplus. We were in good shape. But, and this is surprising because the Republicans are supposed to be the people that know how to handle money. They've gone insane Larry.
They need to go back to the "pay-go" system they had in the 1990's and get this under control before it is too late."
================================

I wish we had that message again...

1. Screw him - - he probably swung about a half million votes to Bush in 2000
because of his last minute endorsement of him on LKL.

Thanks for this MASSIVE DEFICIT, Ross.

5. You've got that right...
I wonder what he thinks today? He has been mysteriously silent. Someone should do an interview with him.

We need a Democrat who talk like him. Simple, plain spoken, yet knowledgeable about the facts and with leadership.

3. Ross is quite feeble
A colleague was recently involved with his son, who is running their vast real estate holdings. He said Ross stays and home and his only real business activity is looking after the family foundation.

6. He apparently hasn't been staying home lately.
He attended several Dallas Mavericks games during the playoffs.
