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.”

4th doesn't have me "very, very worried" either.

But thanks for your input. :-)

Scary stupid with a Texas truck load of cronies who can’t wait to get their hands on the Federal Treasury.

Governor Rick Perry (R-Texas) has pointed to job growth in Texas during the current economic downturn as one of his main accomplishments. But analysis of Current Population Survey (CPS) data collected by the Census Bureau show that immigrants (legal and illegal) have been the primary beneficiaries of this growth since 2007, not native-born workers. This is true even though the native-born accounted for the vast majority of growth in the working-age population (age 16 to 65) in Texas. Thus, they should have received the lion’s share of the increase in employment. As a result, the share of working-age natives in Texas holding a job has declined in a manner very similar to the nation a whole.

Among the findings:

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.


More likely his part-time congress idea is terrifying the wits out of gov_bean_counters such as yourself.

Go count gov beans on your own time at your own cost.

California lawmakers going to Iowa to support a Texas governor. Wow.

1. Who in the right mind would have ANY California lawmaker stump for them? California might as well be part of Mexico.

2. Another set out 'outsiders' brought into Iowa to tell Iowans how to vote. Brilliant.

I swear Krusty the Clown is running Perry's campaign.

Yeah, right. It shows Perry has no grasp of the Constitution AT ALL. He just tosses out crazy crap, just like the ‘I’ll deport illegals’ line not long ago. Will he start by going after those he gave in-state tuition to?

Perry has run one of the worst campaigns in recent history. He’s a joke of a candidate with a joke of a campaign. He’s going nowhere. You know it, I know it and anyone with a modicum of sense knows it.

I swear I’ve never seen such a passel of fools downright scared of growth, wealth, freedom, strength and gutting government, especially where it kills the entrepreneurial spirit.

I have spent 21 years with the Department of the Army spending most of September 30 in the office past midnight receiving incoming funds, committing and recording obligations that get barracks built or painted and upgraded, latrines repaired and DFACs built, etc, etc. Those quality of life issues that seem to be at the bottom of the spending priority lists.

Ah, yes....Roy Beck and his CIS "Green" - population control - anti-immigration loons.

Rick Perry vs the Nativists The anti-immigrant movement is not a big fan of Rick Perry. In fact, presidential hopeful is rapidly turning into public enemy number one for his stance on immigration.

Perry’s comments during the recent debates have caused an uproar within the anti-immigrant movement, with major players Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), and NumbersUSA all publically condemning Perry for his views on immigration.

William Gheen of the anti-immigrant group American for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) has also attacked Perry on his immigration policies, issuing a press release after the last debate saying “Rick Perry is finished.”

Over the past week or so, Perry’s campaign decided to fight back against the anti-immigrant groups. First, Perry’s campaign responded to a memo written by Steven Camarota of CIS where he claimed that most of the jobs the Perry created in Texas during his time as governor were given to immigrants. A Perry campaign worker, Ray Sullivan, responded to Camarota’s memo stating that CIS’s numbers were, “really off base and wrong.”

This is not the first time CIS has been accused of manipulating numbers for its reports, which always conclude, whether the topic be ENVIRONMENT or economy, with the same message: immigrants are to blame.

So Rick Perry is arguing that he would never have voted to increase the budget debt ceiling during Santorum's years in office (1994-2006)? Damn straight, I'm going to reply, but it ain't gonna be whining:

Rick Perry is Mitt Romney's tool.

What else could explain why he's constantly going after all of Romney's opponents? Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, now Rick Santorum. Never the front-runner; only ever the challengers. Someone's trying for the old Massachusetts-Texas alliance.

But why would Rick Perry support a liberal from Massachusetts? Because he's an old-fashioned, unreconstructed totalitarian liberal, like Lyndon Johnson, and his personal hero, Al Gore.

Well put, CW. And if a Perry supporter is launching flying attack monkeys at MM I think she needs to report it to law enforcement. I want to go on the record as personally condemning any monkey attacks being carried out on Perry’s behalf.

You see, I gave up the blind loyalty to the almighty (R) back in 2006.

I've had enough of Texas politicians claiming to be one thing, then being quite the opposite.

Correction: Perry did run one attack ad at least on Romney... over an issue everyone already knew about: Obamacare. But check out the way that the two words that are played with in the ad are “Care” and “Believe” Seriously, Rick Perry’s “attack ad” on Mitt Romney leaves you with the message, “Mitt Romney... Believe” with a voice saying, “He’s right.”

What the heck do you know?

I know "THE ADMINISTRATION" didn't cause Perry to call conservatives 'heartless'.

I know "THE ADMINISTRATION" didn't cause Perry to make a complete fool of himself in nearly every debate.

I know "THE ADMINISTRATION" doesn't prevent Perry from constructing a cogent sentence.

I know "THE ADMINISTRATION" isn't responsible for Perry's decade-long career of pandering to ILLEGAL aliens.

I know "THE ADMINISTRATION" isn't responsible for Perry's Gardasil debacle, an issue that his supporters love to dismiss as meaningless but one that turned many conservatives against him.

I know "THE ADMINISTRATION" isn't responsible for Perry's disastrous campaign, one of the worst in recent history.

But you're right, what the heck do I know.

Good point TADSLOS. I doubt Perry cares that taxpayers are subsidizing his losing campaign. He doesn't care that they subsidize the college educations of ILLEGAL aliens.
