Rick Perry Nearly Doubles Buddy Roemer's New Hampshire Vote in Impressive Show of Strength

The Perry machine dispatches another opponent.
The Rick Perry juggernaut continued to lay waste to GOP primary opponents, neatly dispatching former Louisiana governor Buddy Roemer in Tuesday's New Hampshire primary.

Perry grabbed 1,735 votes in the Granite State, almost doubling the 920 votes received by Roemer, who had been perceived as the front-runner (in the Roemer household).

Roemer was not immediately available for comment, apparently continuing his campaign strategy of not being flashy, or known.

Among the other candidates -- all of them still in the race! -- who Perry beat were Fred Karger, Joe Story and Hugh Cort.

Because New Hampshire can't handle a real Texan, Perry was awarded no delegates despite his quadruple-digit showing.

The race now moves to South Carolina, where Perry supporters hope to break the magic 10,000-vote mark.

I don't think you know Buddy Roemer at all if you describe him as "not being flashy."  You obviously haven't seen Roemer in Stephen Colbert's Super PAC Ad!.  You obviously haven't seen him interviewed.  He's the only Republican Candidate speaking loudly about campaign finance reform!  How much did Rick Perry spend in Iowa and NH to only do this well?   I read Perry spent $6000 PER VOTE in Iowa! If f you judge the strength of a Candidate's Message by how much a candidate had to spend to get each vote (and the less you have to spend, the better the candidate), then Roemer's Message leads the pack!  Follow his twitter feed, you will see how colorful and funny he is, as he LIVE TWEETS his responses to the Republican Debates that he's been continually shut out of.  @BuddyRoemer:twitter You want to know why you haven't heard of Roemer?  It's because the Republican Party desperately doesn't want the issue of Campaign Finance Reform brought up in the debates.  Hmm.  I wonder why that would be?

Roemer is running without the aid of ANY Super PAC money.  And with a self-imposed campaign contribution limit of $100 per person.  That's integrity.  That's class.  That's flash and style!  And that's a lot more than Rick Perry has got, that's for sure.

I understand that this piece is a sarcastic knock on Perry.  But you don't have mock another candidate who deserves your respect in the process.  Because Roemer deserves your attention and respect, even if he can't afford to buy it.

re: the foto, I thought y'all weren't supposed to show porn? Plus, he's probably not going down on a Republican, seeing as how their number includes so few people of color. So was he  extorted into this sex act? Details, please!

Got to love politics.  The crap always rises to the top.  Looks like a showdown in November, the mormon against the moron.

You really print that with a straight face? I mean REALLY? Perry was near the bottom of the heap of actual GOP candidates and you print that like he's near the top? Idiots.

Pretty much. Hell, we allow evolution deniers to decide what goes into science textbooks.

sad as it is to say, my mom likes him because he "looks presidential" and "carries himself well".

i.e. he's good looking and has good posture.

$100 contribution limit? Campaign Finance Reform needs reformers in office, not martyrs dead on the field.

That's because he can't keep his shit together organizationally, he's burned every bridge he had (can't get that sweet lobby money anyway), failed his campaign promises to Louisiana, and his biggest contribution ever has been getting video poker slots on dry land (the profits from which didn't go to education after all!). Roemer is a shell and a shill. I feel bad for him.

Yes, CLEARLY, old "Point-Seven Percent" Rick deserves more respect than that from the Left, seeing as how much respect the Right has been showing him...
