Left-Wing Politico Asks: Is Rick Perry Dumb?

Liberal Media Asks: “Is Rick Perry Dumb?”
After all, he’s only created half of all the new jobs in America in the past year.

Obviously, at the Politico, experiencing massive success must mean you’re dumb.
What horrible people.

Now, if they asked the same question about Obama at least it would have merit. We’re still trying to decide if he is an idiot for blowing a trillion dollars on a failed stimulus, or if he’s some kind of evil genius purposely trying to destroy the American economy.
But the corrupt media will never touch that.

    The only horrible people are ones like GP for repeating the lie. Perry and Texas created the most minimum wage jobs in all 50 states. Over 500,000 people make minimum wage in Texas. What a record of success your Neo-Con boy Perry has.

    The only people dumber than Rick Perry are the Neo-Cons that support him. Back in 1988, Rick Perry supported Al Gore for president. In fact, Rick Perry actually served as Al Gore’s campaign chairman in the state of Texas that year.

    The answer is YES Rick Perry is dumb.

    Ripped # 1 — Perry’s record as a 3 term Goivernor creating jobs is out there for all to see. He has done a good job for Texas while Obama has spent 1 trillion and has yet to create one job.

    We like the fact that we know where Perry was born. He is a 5th generation Texan who served as a Pilot in the military. He is a tough cookie who has created a business friendly environment for job creation. Perry loves God, Country and our Constitution.

    So having a job is now a bad thing?

    When will idiots like you realize that a minimum wage job is for gaining employment experience and the incentive to better one’s self. The whole canard of a living wage is beyond laughable.

    But keep pushing the lies so even more people can be dependent on the government. We ain’t Socialist enough yet for morons like you.

    Yep, I’m dumb enough to believe that a minimum wage job is better than no job at all. I wish Obama were that dumb too.

    It offers the pride and dignity of a ‘paycheck’, the fact you are earning your own way in the world, not mooching entirely off others like a parasite, and in most cases the chance to learn and advance yourself.

    I’m retired now, and I haven’t worked for minimum wage since I was in my 20s. But it says a great deal that liberals try to smear Perry for creating minimum wage jobs while defending Obama for creating no net jobs at all.

  • RKflorida

    I would tell obambi to his face that he is a lying, marxist, idiot. Not so sure the lefties should do the same with Perry. Just the look on his face tells me he would probably pop you a good one.

    I may have some qualms about Governor Perry and his record, but being considered dumb is not one of them.

    Let’s see how we can burst Ripped’s bubble.

    1) Texas has a lot of immigrants, legal and illegal, and they tend to take more minimum wage jobs. That pushes the number of such jobs up.

    2) Texas has a lot of younger workers compared to other states, and younger workers tend to take lower-paying, including minimum-wage, jobs.

    3) Texas at least has minimum wage jobs; New York and California do not. If the choice is a minimum wage job versus unemployment, which one is better? I think it is the former, but I’d be curious which Ripped thinks is better.

    I think it is something in the water at the DNC; they keep pounding on the ‘dumb fighter pilot’ meme. They did it to Dubya and now are doing it to Perry.

    Any pilot (military or commercial) has to understand: aeronautics, physics, electrical and hydraulic systems, flight information, weather, math, and reading comprehension at a pretty high level. That pilot needs physical endurance and some strength, particularly in a military plane.

    Pilots also have to make judgements, integrate complex information, set and execute priorities (sometimes VERY quickly!), and keep their cool.

    Dang, all that sounds like good training for a future governor. Or president.

    Remind me, what was Mr. Obama’s training for the presidency?

    OT.. ht Jasser; AIFD

    The following report by Daniel Greenfield begins to expose the intellectual dishonesty and corruption of the 130 page report released last week from the Center for American Progress and its Islamists and supporters. The Center’s report among others targets AIFD and Dr. Jasser with the typical unethical smears of guilt by association and sarcastic dismissals and denials with not one iota of any new ground or any substantive critique of our work at AIFD. This so called scholarly report rehashes and reprints most of the screeds from The Nation and Media Matters circulated against Dr. Jasser during the King Hearings in March. While CAP’s funding is “secret” odds are that they are part of the machinery of Soros et.al….

    Silencing Critics of Islamic Extremism

    [In a staggering expose, the Center for American Progress has released a 130-page report revealing that organizations which investigate Islamic radicalism are funded by money, not sunshine. One of the report’s authors, Faiz Shakir, was immediately invited to come on Keith Olbermann’s show to discuss this amazing discovery.]

    You ignorant Neo-Con’s will settle for anything thrown your way, being better than 0bama is a far cry from what this country needs. 0bama has been creating jobs at McDonald’s and you hypocrites have been all over him for it, but when Perry creates like Jobs as Wal-Mart greeters he’s a hero. Is this what the far right has become, nothing but a bunch of insult hurling inbreds that will settle for anything just to get rid of 0bama?

    Rick Perry has a record that should make all Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians and Independents cringe.

    He is not the “conservative Republican” that he is trying to claim that he is. He is simply another in a long line of “RINOs” (Republicans in name only).

    Look, the truth is that another four years of Barack Obama would be a complete and total nightmare. But so would four years of Rick Perry. America deserves better than the “lesser of two evils”. Unfortunately, the American people have been dead asleep and have been sending incompetents, con men and charlatans to Washington D.C. for decades.

    Doubtful Perry created minimum wage jobs as number one panic downer claims. Perry’s average and general numbers for good paying jobs will far exceed other states as well.

    Funny how ripped liberal minds never bring facts and will resort to all types of gymnastics if they have to bring actual statistics and facts. What choice do they have? There is never any truth in their claims.

    Jan. 20 to July 20, 2009: Whether it’s brief introductory remarks or drawn-out policy speeches, Obama doesn’t go anywhere without his TelePrompter. On several occasions, his reliance on it results in some embarrassing moments, such as April 27, 2009, when, speaking to scientists at the National Academy of Sciences, Obama’s TelePrompter soars ahead of him and loses the president altogether. To regain his place, he is forced to completely stop his speech until it’s rolled back. On July 13, 2009 his TelePrompter completely falls apart and shatters on the floor as he delivers a speech on the economy at the White House. His continued use of the device prompts some in the media to dub him the “TelePrompter-In-Chief.” Off-camera, of course!April 22, 2009: Obama flies to and from Iowa, making two trips on Air Force One and four trips on Marine One, burning at least 9,000 gallons of fuel on the 895-mile cross-country excursion.

Once the cartel have control of a contries central bank that county becomes enslaved and at risk of being brought to their knees for noncompiance to the dictates of the evil fiat moneychangers.

    [“The Gardasil debacle is just one of many concerns a wide range of grass-roots conservative activists have about Perry’s record as governor. He’s soft on illegal immigration despite a few recent nods to border enforcement. He’s prone to crony capitalism. And as the vaccine mandate scandal shows, he demonstrated Nanny State tendencies that are anathema to Tea Party core principles.]

    Let’s put an end to the Ron Paul/Alex Jones crap that Perry was Al Gore’s Texas campaign manager ONCE AND FOR ALL:

    From the Fort Worth Star-Telegram (not exactly a Rick Perry fan):

    “Some of the nation’s best newspapers and fact-checkers have reported that Perry was the state chairman for Tennessee Democrat Al Gore’s 1988 presidential run.


    Perry, then 38, and a Democrat representing a Texas House district stretching from west of Fort Worth to Abilene, was coordinators in ddifferent parts of Texas, according to two other Democrats in the campaign.

    read the rest:


    Perry was NOT Al Gore’s Texas campaign manager. He was one of 27 Texas Democrats who came out in support of Al Gore, unlike John Tower who supported Michael Dukakis.

    The article goes on to point out that it was both Ron Paul, currently [again] running for POTUS and Perry’s opponent in the gubernatorial race that have repeated the lie.

    Yes, the liberal, it is crunch time and their little brains keeping spinning and spinning. Possibly, with a little luck they might hit on something. Something stupid like this maybe.

  • retire05

    #28 Yeah, Politico is left wing.

    In 2008, after the Texas primaries, Politic reported that Obama had beat Hillary Clinton by over 100,000 votes. So, knowing the results from the State of Texas website, I emailed them and told Politico they had it backwards and it was Hillary, not Obama that won by over 100,000 votes.

    I got a tacky email back informing me that Politic DID NOT MAKE MISTAKES.

    The next moring Politic changed its Texas primary results to reflect Hillarys edge, AFTER the caucuses in Texas that were so crooked Hillary filed over 20 complaints about caucus goer suppression. Of course, nothing came of those complaints since Obama won the election. The PUMAs wrote extensively about how the Texas caucuses were rigged.

  • Neo

    “Since the merits of the Law Review’s selection policy has been the subject of commentary for the last three issues,” wrote Obama, “I’d like to take the time to clarify exactly how our selection process works.”

    If Obama were as smart as a fifth-grader, he would know, of course, that “merits … have.” Were there such a thing as a literary Darwin Award, Obama could have won it on this on one sentence alone. He had vindicated Chen in his first ten words.

    Democrats explain Perry’s true role in Gore’s campaign

    explains a lot right there.. /s/

    Michele Bachmann to Rick Perry:
    Don’t Write That Acceptance Speech Just Yet

    [Bachmann is far the better known quantity. I didn’t say she’s the better quantity, understand, I’m still window shopping. But listen to her. She doesn’t waffle. She’s minimized her once-trademark “misspeaks.” And — with the exception of that first-she-hates-’em-now-she-loves-’em stance on farm subsidies — she doesn’t vary her positions from stump to stump. With the Minnesota congresswoman, pick an issue, think extreme right clear down the line and you’re there — the Bachmann platform.

    Perry, however, has his pros and cons as a known quantity, or as any quantity — the connest being that he’s a former Democrat. He was actually Al Gore’s Texas campaign manager in the 1988 presidential primaries. So, you have to ask yourself, how conservative could a former Al Gore worker be? (To be fair, Perry did switch parties in 1990.)]

    Rick Perry backed an already-climate-crusading Al Gore in ’88

    [Texas Gov. Rick Perry may have forgotten a thing or two about
    the Al Gore presidential campaign he helped lead in 1988.

    In an interview with an Iowa radio station on Monday, the Republican presidential contender explained his role as the Gore campaign’s Texas chairman by saying that “this was Al Gore before he invented the Internet and got to be Mr. Global Warming.”]

    “Governor (Perry), you were a Democrat, having
    worked for Al Gore as his campaign manager…”

    Perry says the HPV vaccine he mandated would have been optional

    [What we found: On Feb. 2, 2007, Perry issued an executive order — not a piece of legislation, as he said — requiring the Texas Health and Human Services Commission to adopt rules mandating all girls entering sixth grade to receive a vaccination against the types of HPV, a sexually-transmitted virus, that causes most cases of cervical cancer and genital warts.

    The order included an opt-out “in order to protect the right of parents to be the final authority on their children’s health care.” Perry ordered the Department of State Health Services to allow parents dissenting for philosophical or religious reasons to request a conscientious objection affidavit form. That form, which has been available since 2003, enables parents to enroll their children in public school even if they lack state-required immunizations. It’s automatically granted as long as parents provide all required information.

    According to the Department of State Health Service’s 2008-09
    immunization report, which uses data from kindergarten and
    seventh-grade students at 1,300 independent school districts
    and 800 private schools, 0.28 percent of the students filed
    conscientious objection forms.

    Parents must renew exemption affidavits every two years to maintain
    their validity
    , according to Allison Lowery, assistant press officer at the
    Texas Department of State Health Services.

    We rate Perry’s claim Barely True.]

    just because it exists, doesn’t mean parents are dutifully informed.. i’m
    hoping & praying the parents have been informed of the mandated rule
    set in place.. *sigh*

    btw: Ron Paul may be right about financial matters so to
    speak.. but he’s wrong on just about everything else.. 😛

    I’m sure as a human being, and being governor for three terms, there have been some mistakes made. No one is perfect. But Perry is fighting the EPA. He wants drilling for oil to go on at every available place. He is totally against the Global Warming agenda. He is for lowering taxes, and giving companies incentives to set up shop in the united states and not China, and Mexico. He has made a law in Texas, for instance, that gives the rights for Texans to use incandesant light bulbs if they are made in Texas, now he is trying to find someone to make them in Texas. He is for freedom of religion, not from religion.

Does Politico also believe that space aliens are angry with us for not believing in man made Global Warming? NASA has a report stating this. Getting more Twilight Zonish by the minute. Who’d a thunk it?

    Trust me… Perry is No Reagan

    Think ObamaCare is bad? Rick “Open Borders” Perry wanted a bi-National plan that would include Mexico

    Does GOP want Perry’s DREAM act too?

    Updated response from Gov. Perry’s Office: Here is an excerpt from a speech Governor Perry gave during the border summit in August of 2001: As a compassionate state, we know that for our children to succeed, they must not only be healthy, but educated. The future leaders of our two nations are learning their fractions and their ABC’s in classrooms all along this border. Immigrants from around the world are being taught in Texas classrooms, and our history is rich with examples of new citizens who have made great contributions. We must say to every Texas child learning in a Texas classroom, “we don’t care where you come from, but where you are going, and we are going to do everything we can to help you get there.” And that vision must include the children of undocumented workers. That’s why Texas took the national lead in allowing such deserving young minds to attend a Texas college at a resident rate. Those young minds are a part of a new generation of leaders, the doors of higher education must be open to them. The message is simple: educacion es el futuro, y si se puede.

    Bachmann is closer to Reagan if you’re looking for true conservatism….

  • maraz

    And then there’s Perry’s Problematic Pals

    Perry has been sucked into the propaganda vortex, and is now wielding his enormous power to influence changes in the schoolrooms and in the curricula to reflect a sharia compliant version of Islam. He is a friend of the Aga Khan, the multimillionaire head of the Ismailis, a Shi’ite sect of Islam that today proclaims its nonviolence but in ages past was the sect that gave rise to the Assassins. Perry has concluded at least two cooperation agreements between the state of Texas and the Ismailis, including a comprehensive program to feed children in Texas public schools and taqiyya nonsense about how Islam is a religion of peace. Another agreement stipulates that Texas officials will work with the Ismailis in the “fields of education, health sciences, natural disaster preparedness and recovery, culture and the environment.” Perry let on that this was all about whitewashing Islam’s bloody historical and modern-day record: “traditional Western education speaks little of the influence of Muslim scientists, scholars, throughout history, and for that matter the cultural treasures that stand today in testament to their wisdom.

  • truth about Perry’s “big” job growth = more GOVERNMENT jobs in Texas!!!!!!

    “Total jobs. Texas: Up 0.7 percent since the beginning of 2008. U.S: Down 5.6 percent. Since the recession began, Texas has added about 75,000 jobs, one of the few states with any job creation at all. Overall, the U.S. economy has lost about 5.6 million jobs since then. But net job gains in Texas have come entirely from government hiring, which accounts for 115,000 new jobs over the past three years. The private sector in Texas shed about 40,000 jobs during that time.”

    – from “How Rick Perry Created Jobs in Texas” By Rick Newman at US news

    Yes, Americans were the “stupid” ones to believe all the leftists lies for quite a few decades now…and we’re all desparate to get rid of Obumbles ‘n’ crew… but can we do better than big government, NON t.e.a. party candidate Perry?!?

  • MamaGrizzly

    Ripped is trying to consolidate power for Perry by insulting his supporters so they “circle the wagons” in his defense. WHO is trying this hard to get Perry elected? His record should be FULLY VETTED in terms of his approach to border security, (real) jobs, Islamic encroachment, speaking at the Bildebergers “let’s take over the world our way” yearly meeting, and so on.

    I just don’t get it.

    Rush was going on and on today about Perry, but no one is asking the tough questions.

    It would be just like the One Worlders to put forth a candidate that can produce the “proper” response from conservatives, using the “proper” sound bites. What happens once he gets into office? Don’t know. Maybe he will be accountable to the electorate because of our expectations.

    Still worried about Perry. We are all starving for new leadership and a return to sanity. No bandwagons for me, even so.

    Bachmann creamed herself out of the race this weekend. Paul is a Libertarian. I still like Santorum, but he isn’t getting much play, and everyone knows I still like Romney. Cain seems like a no-go because of his lack of experience.

    My dream ticket(s)? Rubio/West West/Palin Romney/West, Rubio, Palin, Cain (in any order)

  • Liberals are such cracking smart people.

    ‘The following are the basic principles and axioms upon which all
    public debate must be conducted if you wish to be a true progressive
    and leftist person who cares:

    1. Leftists should be free to call everyone else nasty names, because
    they are so moral, but no one should be permitted to call leftists

    2. For a leftist to call someone nasty names shows social concern and
    awareness. For someone to call a leftist a nasty name back is
    immature and impolite and is avoiding the issues.

    3. When leftists smear others, it is freedom of speech. When critics
    of leftists disagree with the opinions of leftists or question the
    motives of leftists, it is libel.

    4. Leftists need never document their claims All leftist claims are

    5. Whenever a leftist is presented with documentation of facts that
    contradict the leftist’s theology, the leftist must insist that no
    evidence has been presented at all.’…

    BTW, the media is controlled by a VERY few business owners, and they call the shots. I’m thinking if Perry really was a problem, they’d be digging into all his non-Tea Party actions–borders, immigration, Islamic ties, etc. etc.

    Instead, the whole thing seems orchestrated. My take is that they believe WE ARE dumb. They really do. So are they floating a candidate that “sounds” Right, but will act Left?

    I happen to believe that their is a choice better than the lesser of two evils, that conservatism can win. Unfortunately, Perry is only conservative during campaigning time. Try researching his history… his record… instead of criticizing those that do the research. What links have you offered to prove he’s a great candidate?

  • Mama Grizzly

    I agree with Craig (here), Malkin, Geller and others who are rightly putting Perry under a microscope and who aren’t liking what they see in terms of a conservative platform.

    I also agree that like Obama, Perry is one smart, dangerous man who is exceptionally good at fooling people. like Obama, he has people eating out of his hand before they truly know anything about him.

    There’s fakery out there. Like a website purporting to be pro-life which turns out to be Soros–“pro-lifers for … (you guessed it) Obama!

    when they do, it couldn’t possibly be any worse tahan what they did

  • Mama Grizzly

    Does anyone besides me think first the media was puffing Paul because the thought the Right would go for him — but then they saw they were wrong and they’d be left with Romney against Obama — so then Perry shows up out of the blue? Now it’s all Perry all the time.

    I’m not saying I know–I just find it curious.

  • maraz

    @ Mama Grizzly #141

    Well — here’s my take on it… I’ve heard Rush say what he says… and I agree with the overall thought… but like bg said… you’re giving the Left way too much credit to think they are smart enough to use reverse psychology on us to that extent. I’m an Occam’s Razor fan which means that usually the simplest explanation is closer to the truth.

    So here’s what I think is going on. I believe the media will bash any Republican candidate. That’s a given… Perry included. But what I find more telling is what the Pundits say… especially the ones that are supposed to be conservative — like Ann Coulter, or Karl Rove, or even Krauthammer. When all of them start telling me that Perry is the only win-able candidate and Michele Bachmann doesn’t have a chance… that’s when I start to apply Rush’s rule. These are the people who are telling us where they want us to go and who they’re most afraid of. These are the representatives and mouth pieces for the Republican establishment (a.k.a. RINO’s Inc.)

    So when they’re constantly citing polls and telling me that Bachmann will soon fade away and that Perry is the rising star… then I get suspicious and that’s when the research tells me who to avoid.

    I think you’re right about putting Perry in but again, I don’t think it was because of Paul… I think it was because Michele Bachmann won the Straw Poll in Iowa. And the Republican elite also saw Romney losing his steam. This scared them. She was clearly a favorite and the Republican establishment does not want Bachmann because she has stood up to them in the past. Including standing up to Boehner. She is a true conservative with no progressive bones in her body. They don’t like that.

    The people behind the scenes on the Left are extremely smart, actually. I’m not talking about the media dolts. But I understand your point.

    I think the Left is running Perry. And we’re all supposed to follow. Everything is just image and hype. Substance? No … the masses are asses and we can win they say, by marketing an image.

    Doing a double-cross is something I would have done as a former Leftist–so I definitelyndon’t put it past them.

  • maraz

    @ Mama Grizzly # 150

    I wouldn’t put it past the left to do a double-cross either. But I think their strategy is to criticize Perry just enough to tamper down the “likeable” factor – but not to criticize him too harshly so that he doesn’t get elected. I think the left and the Republican RINO’s want Perry elected in the primaries… then in the General… the Left can easily bash him hard… and then they don’t care if the truth about him comes out… so the conservatives won’t have much of a choice at that point.

    So that’s why it’s important to make sure we don’t listen to any of them. But you’ve already seem to be on the same page with that idea.

    And your comments about daryl and working-class to weigh in on cursing the Prophet Mohammad had me laughing. I bet you’re right on that one.

    Agree re: Bachmann. Wish she had watched herself better. She’ll be out within a month.

    I think you may have misinterpreted my meaning. I don’t think she’ll be out at all… I think she’ll fool them all if people do their homework. The only missteps she’s done are the ones the media has to invent or look for really, really hard. She’s the one they fear.

    Perry’s actual record is here.

    Want to know more about Rick Perry?

    James Richard Perry is not perfect but he is nowhere near as bad as some, including conservatives, make him out to be.

    See Reposting: Why Is Pamela Geller Faking Quotes?

  • Also.

    ‘If Senator Rubio becomes the running mate of Governor Perry, which I believe is increasingly likely, President Obama could face his worst electoral nightmare. At the outset, both men are excellent campaigners — articulate, likeable, attractive, and accustomed to winning elections in the diverse and large populations of Texas and Florida. Unlike Republican nominees since Reagan, Rick Perry knows how to work crowds. Perry, like Rubio, has never lost a political race. Although it is a relatively small section of his resume, his time successfully selling Bible reference books door-to-door may be as important as background in running for president.

    Both Perry and Rubio have life stories which demonstrate that the American Dream really works. Perry grew up on a cotton tenant farm in the middle of nowhere and worked hard up every step in his path to success. Rubio’s parents worked in menial jobs so that their son could have a better life. Imagine Rubio campaigning in Las Vegas, where his parents worked like so many Hispanics today, cleaning rooms and tending bars. The greatest impact of these life stories is that the Republican ticket could say just how poor people need not stay poor if government gets out of the way.

    Perry and Rubio are both social and economic conservatives. The left tries to downplay the appeal of social conservatism, but to take just a single social conservative issue, abortion, the latest Rasmussen Poll shows that 55% of Americans believe that abortion is morally wrong while only 30% believe that abortion is morally acceptable and 41% of Americans believe that it is too easy to get an abortion in America while only 14% believe that it is too hard to get an abortion. The vanilla question about whether Americans are “pro-choice” or “pro-life” is meaningless, if Republican candidates have the gumption to ask Obama in a debate whether he believes abortion is moral or immoral — leaving the question of federal policy on abortion aside.’

    The question should be “Why are progressives so dumb?” Obama is a progressive genius and Perry is a dumb conservative. Reality shows that Obama is dumb compared to Perry. In other words, a progressive genius is dumber than an dumb conservative. How about the typical progressive? Why are progressives so dumb?

    I was led to this article, Picking at Scabs on the Ship of Fools, at Unified Patriots. I think Kenny Solomon suggested this article. Full disclosure, I am supporting Rick Perry, is he perfect no. The Gardisil issue is like beating a dead dog, it cant get any deader. I refuse to say negative things about the rep candidates because the one that gets the nod has my vote. Go to Unified Patriots and read the article. I never stay home on election day just because my choice isnt the front runner.2008 lots of hissy fit throwing voters stayed home and look what that got us OBAMA.

  • maraz

    @ catwoman368 #168

    So you’re ok with the Gardasil issue… what about the Islamic ties issue, the weakness on borders issue, the softness on illegal immigration issue and granting free tuition to illegals, what about the ObamaCare extended to include Mexico issue? Are those dead dog issues too? Should we give him a pass on those issues as well and just claim they don’t matter? And ignore the fact that we have an option for a great conservative who would support the constitution 1000% in someone like Bachmann?

  • bg

    Sorry. I thought the link was correct. My bad. Here it is. 🙂


  • catwoman368

    My question to you #169 is this. If Perry is the nominee for the gop are you going to stay home on election day? If all your info on Perry comes from alex jones or a Ron Paul supporter believe what you want. Read Picking at Scabs on the Ship of Fools cause I think you are in the rowboat headed for the ship. I get it you dont like Perry, so I guess that means you will stay home on election day, good for you because if obama gets re-elected then you and I need to meet at the OK corral. Perry got his hand slapped with the gardisil issue and I was one of those calling the govs office. Perry is also a friend of Israel. is that a negative with you?*sigh*, *sigh*, *sigh*.

    bg many stayed home in 2008 there was no assuming and yes I get the ASSume but no where have I called anyone an ass on here. You dont care for Perry but Palin is not in yet and I have no problem with others but I know Perry and he is business friendly.and most of all he is not obama. We can pick at scabs and make them bleed but every candidate has issues and have done things we dont agree with. I am simply not going to be negative about them because they are all better than obama. I didnt say you were going to stay home so dont get a hitch in your britches because we probably want the same things for this country and the generations of those still not born. May God have mercy on us all. goodnight

    I don’t know why you assumed I would sit out the election, but that said, you claim Perry is a friend of Israel. NOT TRUE. Anyone who is a friend of Islam cannot be for Israel.

    I know for a fact that Bachmann is a huge friend of Israel… so don’t understand why you’re stuck on Perry? And as bg stated, I too refuse to let the media dictate that Perry is the best candidate. I happen to be able to think for myself. As a side note – I know a lot of Tea Party people who live in Texas and they are refusing to support Perry.

    Duly noted. I am from TX so I suppose I support Perry as he is from TX too. At this point I am however not committed to any one candidate, things will shake out before and after the primaries.

    re you claim Perry is a friend of Israel. NOT TRUE. Anyone who is a friend of Islam cannot be for Israel.


    ‘Believe it or not, Texas Gov. Rick Perry had a hand in preventing those pesky Gaza-bound “Freedom Flotillas” from ever reaching Israeli waters.

    Perry, a devout Christian who loves the Jewish state, has taken many trips to Israel — more than any other Republican candidate, in fact. While on one of those tours, Perry met Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, co-founder of Shurat HaDin, an Israeli law center.

    “I once spoke at a mission that Perry took part in, in Israel,” Darshan-Leitner recently told Commentary’s Alana Goodman. “And he approached me and said, ‘I love what you do. It’s amazing what you do. If you ever need help combating Israel’s enemies, I’m here to assist.’ ”

    Perry made good on that promise in July, when a cohort of liberal activists boarded a Gaza-bound aid boat with the goal of breaching Israel’s maritime blockade of the Gaza strip.

    Several of the activists aboard the flotilla happened to be Americans, and upon realizing this, Shurat HaDin’s crack lawyers took action, according to Goodman. They charged that the U.S. citizens were in violation of the Neutrality Act, a law that prohibits Americans from participating in hostile acts against allied countries.

    “So we approached the Attorney General of the United States to fix it,” Darshan-Leitner told Goodman. “And we also got Gov. Rick Perry to write a letter to [Attorney General] Eric Holder.”

    Ultimately, nine of the 10 boats that participated in the Israel-bashing exercise never made it to the Jewish state, thanks in part to Gov. Rick Perry.’

    I think bg and Mamagrizzly need med checks.

    I’m not a paid operative for the Perry campaign nor do I worship any political figure (Palin or Paul or Obama)…That’s not a valid Conservative Position.

    I’m a native Texan & Live in Texas. Texas has jobs.

    1. What has Palin,Romney,Gingrich,Cain,Santorum or any of the other candidates done during this economic crisis to help the people of their states?

    Aside from Rep. Bachmann,Rep. Paul and Governor Perry NONE of these candidates have worked within either a state legislature or the federal government on economic policies or legislation to deal with the economic impact or democratic policies on either their states or the nation.

    Cain has worked in the private sector…Romney has been running since 2008. Santorum lost his seat in 2006. Gingrich has been writing books and gong on TV.

    Palin resigned her elective office and walked away to TV Land, Books and celebrity.

    Huntsman has been in China working for Obama.

    Why as a voter should I be interested in anybody with paper plans made on the sidelines?

    Of the three who have been in the thick of it with respect to legislating and planning for their state I’ll go with Gov. Perry because his plan works.

    Oh for cryin’ out loud….WHY would both the left and the right be goin after him in this sh*tstorm of media crapola if a “fix” was in?

    Geller has jumped the shark and reasonable conservatives can see the obvious. Geller has a Palin agenda. Palin’s followers are spreading their concern troll tripe and she’s not even a candidate.

    Again….What did Palin do for Alaska as Economic Disaster for this nation loomed…Yeah she BAILED…Palin went on TV to be a cheerleader for the nascent Tea Party Movement and has been doing everything she can to turn that into a personality cult.

    I really hope Palin enters the race because it will be a short race for her and the media distraction can only help the other candidates as Palin implodes… and The Conservative Movement can get rid of this dangerous Personality Cult Agenda driven by Palin & Paul needy idol worshippers…That is for Liberals not Conservatives…It’s embarrassing.

    You’re discrediting your candidate and your credibility.

  • workingclass artist

    That’s how it looked this morning…O’Donnell is back on the roster by this evening.
    Palin is going to NH after Iowa. Am I scared of Palin running in this race…nah…

    I think it would great if she runs…Why not?

    Do I think she can beat Perry….no

    Palin and Bachmann will tear each other up for 3rd place as Queen of the Tea Party. But we’ll see IF she jumps in the race. I won’t believe it till either FOX tells her to decide or she announces.

  • mcc

    #194 – …vindication. Palin has backed out of the Iowa event.

    Not true. Your second link had a correction you failed to note. Here’s a less muddled report, though it still cites unnamed, questionable sources:

    Sarah Palin…will be in Iowa on Saturday, as planned.[…]

    An erroneous report in the Wall Street Journal citing unnamed sources claimed she had canceled an appearance at a Tea Party of America rally…


    I’d go here to find something closer to the truth. The planners were fumbling a few things, security among them. The event is “on” with Sarah keynoting:


    Your first link said nothing you claimed it did. Your second link (WSJ) had a correction you failed to report; instead, you chose to repeat an untruth, thereby misleading the casual reader of this thread.

    As regards the MSM, I’ll leave it to the reader to decide who’s trying to create a tempest in a teapot.

    It’s pretty clear what you’re trying to do. Naughty boy.
