Rick Perry endorses Mitt Romney

AUSTIN, Texas, April 26 (UPI) -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry has endorsed presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney after initially supporting Newt Gingrich.

Perry endorsed Gingrich, a former House speaker, after dropping out of the race himself Jan.19, but he switched his allegiance Wednesday to Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, CNN reported.

This is like having the school's biggest dunce endorse you for student council president (but only after all the other candidates are out of the race anyway).

A high school senior would know enough to be embarrassed by the endorsement, but Romney looks as though he's won a major award.

Note as well that they dressed as twins--and not in the red ties they wore through most of the primaries, either. Seriously, the efforts of all politicians to send us subliminal messages via how they dress is ridiculously transparent. We should all be insulted that they think we are that dense and that easily manipulated.

Random thought: I think Romney and Callista Gingrich belong together: two plastic department store mannekins, devoid of personality, in their golden years, to whom even Republicans cannot relate.

1. Endorsements usually have little effect, in this case however, it may help Obama. hahahaha
This guy is a dolt. Did he say he had three great reasons why Willard should be president and stare blankly after the 2nd lie???

3. So far, Santorum has been very careful NOT to say that he had endorsed Romney.
I think he is waiting to cut some kind of deal with Romney.

But, he will probably fall in line in due course. He has to, or he will not get any financial help next time he runs--and I think he will run again. He may not get much help then, either, though. The establishment Republicans are just not that into him.

I can't imagine why. :sarcasm:
