CA lawmakers in Iowa to boost Rick Perry; watch new “pig” attack ad blistering Santorum
Houston Chronicle ^ | January 2, 2012

Posted on 01/02/2012 2:31:45 PM PST by Cincinatus' Wife

With less than 48 hours until Iowans kick off the GOP caucuses, a crowd of California lawmakers have joined Steve Forbes, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and other supporters making a final push for Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

California Assemblymembers Dan Logue, Shannon Grove, Brian Jones and Curt Hagman have all hit the ground in the Hawkeye State Iowa Monday, ready for duty.

Logue, in a phone interview, just told us that “Iowa is going to do well for Perry — and this is just the first step of many steps.”

"....Perry hits three cities today on his last major trip across Iowa, ending tonight in - fittingly - a town called Perry. He's traveling with flat-tax proponent Steve Forbes, friend and decorated former Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, Congressman Sam Graves [Missouri], Congressman Mick Mulvaney [South Carolina], Comptroller Susan Combs and country music singer Larry Gatlin."... Source

Perry and you Krishnas make me sick. You've done nothing but attack everyone in front of you. From Gingrich to Bachmann to Cain to Santorum.

And you wonder why Perry can't gain any traction.

How about his a parasitic hack who’s only way to try and gain any support is to attack everyone in front of him. Must suck to look up from the bottom of the pile.

Really, he’s only one of the three. He’s an idiot. You’re right on that point. How can anybody come to a different conclusion after watching his debate performances?

It's amazing how the "idiot" runs the best "jobs" state in the country; a state with the 13th largest economy in the world. And he wins cases against the Feds and prevails in cases before the Supreme Court. Every state should elect "idiots" like Rick Perry. In fact, hows about we elect Gov. Perry President so he can get the country back to work?

The reason these CA legislators are there is Perry spent the summer with them, showing them how to beat back insane regulation, zombie taxation and all that kills a State, and these CA guys want to help spread the word to all the other States that Fedzilla’s days are *extremely* numbered.

The problem, rintense, is that they will now go to the mods/the owner of this site and report you. Been there, done that. They will now also call out their flying monkeys to attack you. Personally, I believe that you give as good as you can take. You suck up the abuse and go on. This is not the case with these people.

In other words, take care.

Perry is the only true, authentic conservative in this race. He is a natural for the nomination — smart, perceptive, sense of humor, telegenic and great sense of values.

I'm sure there is a term for turning the truth on its head. Perry supporters are strong advocates for their candidate and do not sit silent when you and your friends come to attack. All anyone has to do is read back through a few threads where you've been, to see how you "play the game."

I have found Perry supporters to be some of the politest, kindest most informed and loyal posters on FR.

The ONLY way Perry gets any ink anywhere is with a flub.

Where have I heard this before? ‘Please don’t throw me into that brier patch!’

This one facet of his campaign tells you all you need to prove Perry is the LAST candidate zero wants to run against.

ZERO AND HIS PET LSM DOES NOT WANT HIM TO HAVE TO RUN AGAINST RICK PERRY.

Please. Not worried about Perry at all. But I can't wait to hear all the excuses from you cultists when Perry drops out.

How ironic that all the things you've called Newt, Cain, Bachmann and yes, even Palin supporters, is the very thing you've been all along.

And not a single one of you has answered the question I've posed several times:

If Perry truly is the 'one true conservative' in the race, why isn't he in the lead? Why isn't he cleaning Romney's clock? And why is a nut job like Paul beating him?

Texas Enterprise Fund

Texas Employment Update!

"Another new measure made tightening air quality permits on the oil and gas industry more difficult. That law, which Perry signed in June, requires the Texas environmental agency to analyze the effect of new regulation on the economy - including how it might hurt a company - before implementation. The economic impact could override the environmental benefit of the new regulation. The new law reflects Perry's contention that global warming is a questionable theory and that regulation always creates an adverse business climate." Perry Slashed Environmental Enforcement in Texas

The case for Perry’s venture capitalismThere’s a big difference between the Texas and statist approaches - There has been a lot of debate about Gov. Rick Perry’s economic development funds. The criticism centers on the idea that the Texan’s funds create a “Solyndra problem” for him, that by investing in businesses that bring jobs to the state, Mr. Perry has the same job-creation approach President Obama displayed in backing federal loans to a solar-energy firm.

Equating the two men in this way provides a convenient symmetry, but it’s also a false comparison that misses why many free marketers are comfortable with Gov. Perry even while critical of Solyndra.”……

___________________

........."you can lay your fears to rest because in the last year the Texas public sector has shrunk by 26,000 jobs. In the last 12 months, Texas lost 31,300 federal employees, trimmed 3,800 state jobs, and increased local government jobs by 8,400 jobs."........... Source

Misfire: Romney Ad Targets Rick Perry's Jobs Record "I think it's safe to say the Romney campaign is going for the kill with its latest attack on Rick Perry. The former Massachusetts Governor has already gotten a fair amount of mileage out of attacking his Texan rival from the left on Social Security, and from the right on immigration, but this new spot strikes at the heart of the Perry campaign's raison detre -- jobs, jobs, jobs:

The Facts --Mitt Romney's political ad

[snip]

The spot's most striking image is a tumbleweed blowing along a deserted Texas highway. That's rich. It's intended to create the impression that Rick Perry's Texas is something of a depressed ghost town. Nothing could be further from the truth. Since the recession began, desperate job seekers have flocked to Texas at a clip of roughly 1,000 people per day. And they're finding work, too. Despite a huge population influx and a bruising national recession, Texas' unemployment rate remains below the national average. How remarkable has the Lone Star State's economic performance been? Read this Political Math analysis (written by a self-professed non Perry supporter), and marvel. One telling data point:

Perry is scary stupid.

His “part-time Congress” statement displays an amazing lack of knowledge regarding Congress’ roll in the Federal Budget cycle, which is a year 'round exercise, as well as major acquisition milestones.

He said that money gets lost in the maze of earmarks. Just the opposite is true. Earmarks are the only way Congress has to ensure that appropriate funds are spent according to the wishes of Congress. Earmarks are not the same as pork.

His term limits on Federal Judges is extra Constitutional and does nothing to return the courts to their rightful place in the hierarchy of power.

There is more, much more. Like I said, scary stupid (as are, apparently some of his supporters).

Nov 14, 2011: Special report: The golden age of opposition research Original source – Reuters.....Overall, Romney is thought to have the best oppo team in this Republican primary, with Yost as chief of research and Matt Rhoades, another veteran of RNC opposition research, as campaign manager. No one in the Romney organization would comment.

*****************

....."Frustrated rivals think they know the secret: a low-profile, hard-driving Republican operative named Matt Rhoades, who is Romney’s campaign manager. Rhoades met Drudge, as POLITICO Editor-in-Chief John F. Harris and co-author Mark Halperin reported in their book “The Way to Win: Taking the White House in 2008,” when he became research director of the Republican National Committee and was introduced by his predecessor on a special trip to Miami. Rhoades has since been seen as a pipeline to the reclusive Drudge, who now has two veteran Washington reporters working on the site as well.".... Source

Perry: Uproot and Overhaul Washington

The Perry Plan: Energizing American Jobs and Security

The Perry Economic Plan: Cut, Balance and Grow

Texas, Austin exception to gloomy retail picture

Texas Debt Clock

[snip] “Dynamic Tax Score for RickPerry.org, Inc. Proposal:

Based on the higher GDP estimates forecast by the dynamic scoring exercise, the Perry proposal will not only lead to an increase in overall economic activity and jobs, but will also lead to higher federal revenues in the long term. In fact, the analysis suggests that revenues could be as much as $406.8 billion higher than under the static model by 2020, and could be as high as 19.5 percent of GDP. The dynamic score of the proposal suggests that lower flatter taxes could generate both more revenue than the current tax code, and significantly more economic growth over time. With increasing demands on the Federal government from growing entitlements, higher pension expenses and interest on the debt, it will be necessary to increase the size of the economy – and the tax base – in order to generate significantly higher revenues. Table 7 shows how the Perry proposals would do this over a seven year period.’ [snip] Tax Proposal Score PDF

And why is a nut job like Paul beating him?


The real question is “why is a nut job like Paul beating all the other candidates except Gringrich and Rommey”?

Must be something in the water, reckon? Or it could just be the candidates that are in the race.

‘tense, have a happy, prosperous and blessed New Year. Don’t take this campaign so personal to let it tear at your soul and fabric. The sun will rise tomorrow and the day after and God’s will will be done.
