We Are ACORN Mighty, Mighty ACORN: Rick Perry Edition
A TIme For Choosing ^ | 8/11/2012 | Gary Jackson

Posted on 08/12/2011 6:10:46 AM PDT by curth

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.

Notice the lovely woman in the Houston ACORN shirt standing with a smiling Rick Perry.

Someone might want to talk with Houston’s King Street Patriots and their fight against Mighty ACORN in Houston with their True the Vote program.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTaQW4hLGWI&feature=player_embedded

In other ACORN news: A Nevada Judge fines ACORN but wanted prison for ACORN’s leaders.

Read BREAKING: ‘Banana Republic’ ACORN Hit with Maximum Fine in Voter Fraud Scheme over at Big Government for the entire run down.

As you know President Barack Obama used to work for ACORN. His job was training the rent-a-thugs the finer points of communist Saul Alinsky’s manifesto Rules for Radicals

Over the last few days a lot of people have been hammering Rick Perry because he was once a democrat [at a time most Texas politicians were] and was Al Gore’s Texas campaign chairman in 1988. That’s kind of silly.

The great Ronald Reagan was also a democrat before, as he said, the party left him. He was also a big supporter of Franklin Roosevelt, the president who did more to support Marxism in America than any other before Obama.

This is a dumb thing to hit Perry on.

The relationships people need to question Perry about are his ties to groups like ACORN, as well as open borders, race-baiting groups like LULAC and La Raza [literally, The Race] that advocate illegal immigration and support the Reconquista of the Southwestern United States.

We’ll have more on Perry’s ties to these groups and his sorry record on illegal immigration to come.

Rick Perry upon signing Texas’ supported DREAM ACT, granting in state tuition to illegal aliens:

“Educacion es el futuro, y si se puede.”

Translation: “Education is the future” and throwing in Cesar Chavez’s slogan: [and Obama's] “Yes we can!” for good measure.

He said he was sorry about this. Isn’t that enough?

I am not a Rick Perry fan.

That said, that appears to be an old photo. Be fair. Most of us didn’t know just how corrupt and malignant Acorn was until a couple of years ago.

A governor has to meet with all stripes, mix with all the people of his state, no matter whether he agrees with them or not. Acorn got lots of money from the feds, over which Perry has no real control (even less than some governors, because the Texas gov isn’t very powerful).

He’s been in office for 12 years and has posed with a lot of strangers.

He’s very vulnerable on other things, but this photo isn’t one of them, IMO.

Regardless of this article I truly wish somebody was running for POTUS that I could get behind other than half heartedly only because we have to get Obama, and the RATS out of our leadership.

I don’t think any of those running today have the guts to yank the reins, and turn this pony on its heel getting it back on the trail.

At least nobody of the declared.

CORRECTION to the article:

"Notice the lovely womanthree women in the Houston ACORN shirts standing with a smiling Rick Perry."

How could Perry, or anyone else, miss 3 t-shirts (which in color are red) with the big acorn on them?

Perry is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. He will say/do anything to acquire power.

I agree. Politicians have photos taken with just about anyone who passes by. The problems with Perry have nothing to do with the photo.

I’m tired of voting with one hand holding my nose. Did that twice with Perry and don’t plan on making it three times. The only reason he got this last election was because the people came out to vote AGAINST Kay Bailey Hutchison. Surely, somewhere out there is a true conservative. I’d be happy with Cain or Palin but don’t see anyone else on the list who would refuse the koolaid.

It’s that time in the election cycle where negative stories are planted by each campaign. After the GOP candidates finish carving each other up, the Democrats will have a video collection to use in Obama’s campaign.

If Sarah was sooo virtuous she would have already made her decision. She's a gamesman.

“He will say/do anything to acquire power.”

That seems more of an emotional statement than a factual one.

I am sorry. Life doesn't always give us easy choices. As adults we have to make decisions based on reality and not what we want. I wish I could chose between steak and lobster every night, but I cannot. I can assure you if conservatives stay home in 2012 0bama will be reelected.

This is classic big government socialism and Perry is all about that. He thinks he can dupe Americans with his “praying” but remember Hillary and Obama practiced the exact same strategy. Americans shouldn't be fooled by these dubious tactics...if Perry was truly a principled man he would not play games with the fate of this nation. No more RINOs no more big government presidents to lead this nation further down the path to socialist decadence.

I agree. The anti-Perry-ites are to the point of desperation and will say anything to demonize Gov. Perry. We have got to UNITE behind a STRONG candidate!

No. Waiting to announce is not “gamesmanship.” It may just be wisdom.

Don’t you get tired of the never-ending race? I hate it that we have to start the campaign 2 years out.

The only reason for wanna-bes to announce early is to gain name recognition, build an organization, find funding, and get ready for the real campaign.

Palin already has all this. It would be stupid for her to have announced already.

I have no dog in this hunt yet and was able to rule out a few after last night’s debate. But I’m still wide-open to unannounced candidates.

Thanks, perdogg, for saying that.

I do NOT like Rick Perry. I’ve said so many times. But my crazy brother-in-law could do a better job in Washington than Obama has.

I’ll fight for the best candidate to oppose him till next summer, then if I have to hold my nose and vote for Perry once again, I will.

Because I love this country and my grandbaby more than I loathe Perry.

It’s not about me. Sitting at home in November 2012 is simply no option for a patriot.

Concerning Sarah Palin and "cheap labor interests," I'm not so sure she's not like so many RINOs on the Illegal Alien issue. I only have the below excerpt from her interview when she was McCain's running mate, and not much since.
Governor, let me ask you about immigration. How many undocumented immigrants are there in Alaska?

"I don't know, I don't know. That's a good question."

As governor, how do you deal with them? Do you think they all should be deported?

"There is no way that in the US we would roundup every illegal immigrant -there are about 12 million of the illegal immigrants- not only economically is that just an impossibility but that's not a humane way anyway to deal with the issue that we face with illegal immigration."

Do you then favor an amnesty for the 12 or 13 million undocumented immigrants?

"No, I do not. I do not. Not total amnesty. You know, people have got to follow the rules. They've got to follow the bar, and we have got to make sure that there is equal opportunity and those who are here legally should be first in line for services being provided and those opportunities that this great country provides."

To clarify, so you support a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants?

"I do because I understand why people would want to be in America. To seek the safety and prosperity, the opportunities, the health that is here. It is so important that yes, people follow the rules so that people can be treated equally and fairly in this country."

LINK

On enforcement: "No way we can roundup 12 million," "not economical," "not humane,"

On amnesty: "not a total amnesty" 'supports a path to citizenship for illegals'

I wish I could find were she addressed this issue without using the RINO phrase book.

I do agree that Palin’s been either vague or duplicitous on illegal immigration. That’s why she’s not at the top of my list.

However, unlike Perry, that’s really her only weak point. Perry’s record is atrocious on any number of fronts. So bad that he barely qualifies as republican, much less conservative.

If they can tell me when Sarah spoke out for Federal Enforcement against the invaders, I’ll be happy and relieved to know it. If they merely attack, I’ll know she’s a RINO on the issue.

You are right but I see consistancy in Rules, Rule of Law that she keeps coming back to.
Here is another statement more recent where she is willing to move against DREAM ACT;

“The immigrants of the past, they had to literally and figuratively stand in line to become U.S. citizens. I’d like to see that continue,” Palin said, according to Politico. “And unfortunately, the DREAM Act kind of usurps that.”
Then I heard her on FOX with Greta during the AZ 1070 hullabulo. She mentioned building the country through the FRONT DOOR.
Out of all of them I think she will quietly enforce I’m guessing and keep pressing Rule of Law but not talk DEPORT THEM ALL either.
this is far stronger than Perry.

Palin did say something in support of AZ Governor Brewer on AZ’s Immigration law, but it was worded in such a way that it seemed that it could be based on State Rights. I see Federal Immigration Enforcement as a primary duty of the federal government of a sovereign nation - on the level of Military Defense.

Lamenting the abandonment of old proven ways is pointless if you then go on to the RINO phrase book of Immigration myths and false solutions.

Years of non-enforcement and the "can't deport them all" attitude has been exactly what keeps the invaders coming.

Right now America has a "front door" that has admitted more than a million legal immigrants a year for decade, but that does not and will never stop those breaking in through the windows as long as they feel safe once they get here.

Before the failed Amnesty of the 1980s and the de facto temporary amnesty since, four different President used large scale repatriation programs to clear out illegals. And all of those demonstrated clearly that for every illegal physically removed by the gov't, 15-20 times more were scared into fleeing the country on their own.

The Amnesty (which also was not total) in the 1980s, only demonstrated that it encouraged an even larger invasion of illegals.

not the case. obama started this campaign season artificially early because he’s bored with being President. it’s not as much fun to him actually being president as it is running for the office. Sarah isn’t playing his game, and will announce when she’s ready.

you are singing to the choir but I do not think any of the candidates will talk “deportation” with her We get as close as possible. The only weapon left is to institute E-Verify in an enforceable way. If Lamar Smith’s bill passes with the FED pre-emption and high standard of evidence against employers...we are toast. This bill MUST BE BLOCKED.

You didn’t. I never said you did. Sorry if there was misunderstanding.

You did say you wouldn’t vote for Perry again. I sure hope I don’t have to, that it doesn’t come to that. In an Obama/Perry matchup, I’m assuming we would hold our noses and do the right thing.
