A presidential preference

Micah R. writes:

If you had to pick right now, for which candidate would you vote? Michele Bachmann is admirable for her commitment to repealing Obamacare, but I don’t want to hear four State of the Union addresses focused on how many kids she has raised. Herman Cain has some great quotes, but seems to be in well over his head. Perry is soft on immigration, and generally a buffoon. Romney has political acumen, but is socially far from a true conservative. Needless to say, I am disappointed by the available candidates, and wondered who you would favor from the current spread.

LA replies:

I would vote for Bachmann. Her commitment to repeal Obamacare, and her statement that the NATO/U.S. regime change in Libya was wrong, make her stand out from the others. That’s leaving aside the questions whether she can win and how effective she would be as president.

I wonder how many people are put off by Rick Perry’s slow way of speaking? At times there are these long pauses when answering a question that make him appear to be “slow.” The suspicion is that he’s just not “fast enough” meaning that thoughts and words don’t come to him readily. At first his image came across to me as just “not bright enough.” However he does express himself articulately after awhile.

LA replies:

He does often come across as not bright.
