I can imagine what's going through Perry's mind in this picture.
"OK. When I stand up, look toward the ceiling and put my hand over my heart. That'll impress the morons. Then, when I do my stump speech in the deep south, hold up the bible, make my lip quiver, and have a tear roll down from my eye as I talk about the love of Jesus. That should rope in the rubes and clinch the South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama primaries. Try that with your magic underwear, Romney!"
I'd have to respond:
"Mr. Perry, you are not meant to be elected to our highest office so that you can abrogate responsibility for that office in favor of some external force or entity which is not in evidence. If you haven't the means or the plans or proposals that YOU have formulated, that YOU intend to implement, and that YOU will be responsible for, THEN DON'T RUN."
