Skip to comments.Obama And Perry Priorities On Display
Posted on 09/05/2011 9:05:32 PM PDT by CaroleL
Texas Governor Rick Perry provided a glimpse of the kind of president he might be when he skipped the chance to participate in a nationally televised political forum to do his job. Mr. Perry was slated to appear with other GOP presidential contenders at Senator Jim DeMint's (R-South Carolina) Palmetto Freedom Forum on Labor Day, but instead he rushed back to work as a roaring wildfire raced across Central Texas.

Rushed? Oh brother.....rushed would have been leaving Saturday before having to be goaded back by the people asking where he was. A leader would do that anyway. Of course Obama and Perry have very similar priorities.
A governor belongs in his state during an emergency.
He sure does. To bad Perry went at his convenience instead of when he should have been there. Of course he had to give a campaign speech this morning while his state was burning to the ground. Yes his priorities are load and clear.
Your priorities certainly are clear.
I think you guys are just upset he missed the debate. Imagine. You could have turnd his every sentence somehow into the smoking gun that would destroy his reputation as a conservative AND chastised him for not putting his state first. Would have been win/win for you guys.
“He sure does. To bad Perry went at his convenience instead of when he should have been there. Of course he had to give a campaign speech this morning while his state was burning to the ground. Yes his priorities are load and clear.”
Load and clear?
Suck it up, Jasper. He is going to be our nominee, whether YOU like it or not.
And what is napscoordinator’s “priority” in making this post? As if it isn’t so obvious, it’s hanging out all over.
Get thee to a timeline of events and thee will see that the article’s summation sentence is exactly factual.
That he rushed back as a roaring wildfire raced across Central Texas.
On my state/local news programming, just now this evening they are showing utterly shocked residents of the affected area, as they describe the sudden overtaking of the area and the rooftops of homes with a few sparks that ignited a tenderbox and quickly destroyed huge areas, on its way to overtaking much more massive amounts of property. They were begging for people who had horse trailers to come in from other areas beyond the fire to emergency evacuate horses that were in the fire’s path, before they would die in the fire. These people and the responders are in shock at how fast this is happening and how overwhelming it is.
That did not happen Saturday, that just happened and Perry rushed back in concert with it.
Clue to the clueless: you only make yourself look bad, not Rick Perry.
I heard about the fires in Texas last week. I heard about them Saturday. I heard about them yesterday. Sorry I get the info and the gov doesn’t. Sheesh. Maybe he was busy.
You are dishonest.
I would welcome the chance to say that to your face.
I know of fires in earlier stages. In Texas we have been having this problem for many months. Only today did the particular development that was so quick, extreme, severe and rapidly spreading and massively destructive happen.
That fact is all over my local and state news.
Keep it up and remove all doubt that you are as dishonest as they come.
I’m pretty sure the only one who gets to do that to Mrs. Palin is Mr. Palin.
I think you are dishonest too. You have an agenda. Look where you are from! You love the guy and that is your bottom line.
Sarah Palin ought to hide her head in shame that such as this is being posted in the name of supporting her.
Perry ought to hide his head in shame that some of his supporters think oral sex jokes about Palin supporters pass for an argument.
Oh gosh, another Palin suck-up.
I can’t wait for the day when Palin finally admits it’s all been a tease, endorses Perry and you ninnies all get your well deserved comeuppance
My agenda is defeating Obama and booting Harry Reid.
My agenda includes willingness to vote for Sarah Palin, or Rick Perry, or Michelle Bachmann or Herman Cain.
You cannot refute the facts. So you switch to accusing me of doing what you did, which is lie.
I haven’t lied.
I’m open and up front. I stated the facts of the sudden and severe turn in the wildfires that Texas has been coping with for many months, and how Perry’s return tracked with the events of today, not Saturday or last week.
I’m telling the truth. It’s all over my news here in Texas. Do you get that...all I have to do is turn on my news and the proof of your lies is in every word and picture.
I’m also telling the truth that I will happily vote for any of the four people I named.
Got you beat by miles, buddy, for not being dishonest.
www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=quim - CachedSimilar You +1'd this publicly. Undo Apr 7, 2005 The noun quim was a Victorian-era word that was used specifically to refer to the fluids produced by the vagina, specifically during orgasm.
I have no connection to that, as you know. You be ashamed for connecting me to it. Napscoordinator started this thing by lying on the facts, and I called him on it. Sarah Palin indeed should be ashamed of what he, and now you, are doing in her name. Not ashamed of herself, ashamed of you.
Another vaginal reference re: Palin.... disgusting behavior on FR! Is this DU
You have no connection to that? What? Really?
No, actually I don’t know that.
Oh lord, now the Palinistas have to whine like little beechees to the moderators because their goddess has been besmirched.....by the word quim. Yoo funny.
Grow a spine.
Do you ever wonder if your adoration of Mama Grizz is no different than the One We’ve All Been Waiting For in 2008?
Man,you sure ran out of ammo quickly.
As I told naps, all I have to do is turn on my state/local news. In every word and picture they prove that this thing that happened in the hours that Perry rushed back is not like anything that happened prior. It is beyond, beyond anything anyone has ever seen.
Instead, naps tried to palm off the falsehood that this is all part of what Perry knew for days was happening and just didn’t care, then only pretended to care by going back. Then accused me of posting the facts I did only because I have a Perry agenda.
Even said it was because I’m from Texas that I posted it (the truth, actually, in the face of lies).
That was the issue before the crude post referencing Sarah Palin was posted.
That inappropriate crudity doesn’t change what naps did to this thread and what the exchange up until then, and after, has been about.
FR is not a porn site. You need to tone down your disparaging references to female anatomy and sexual inferences. It has no place in debate, no matter who your candidate is. This kind of crap is status quo on Dem sites, never has been on FR.
“You need to tone down your disparaging references to female anatomy and sexual inferences. It has no place in debate, no matter who your candidate is.”
Gosh, I didn’t know my wayback machine had transported me to Victorian England.
Calling the Palin sycophants for what they are has brought out the conveniently prudish.
Your posts are disgusting and not worthy of this site. I have no problem with reading criticisms of Palin, Bachmann or any other WOMEN running for office. Your references to anatomy are low. It shows you have no class and are losing in your arguments.
“You may want to take that up with the Boss...”
The boss of who?
It looks like you are looking for a zot. I hope your wishes will be answered.
lol. Yes you say a crude thing about Sarah Palin and blame me. How adult of you. Control yourself for a change.
What I find interesting and worthy of mocking is the same mindless cult of personality directed towards Sarah Palin in 2011 as was directed towards Barack Obama in 2008.
Well, considering he OWNS this site, and it happens to be ‘private property’, who do YOU think is the boss?
Well, I guess if Jim wants to ban me from the site for merely mocking you Palin sycophants, I’ll just have to suck it up and survive somehow.
Who are you for?? Please answer.
Well, I guess Jim wanted to. Your ZOT is from the boss.
Please let me know if you want ON or OFF my Viking Kitty/ZOT ping list!. . . don't be shy.
Thank you... he was getting annoying :/
Answered from the Boss (through the Admin ;)) himself ;)
That Zot was EPIC!!! :D made my day!!!
Woo hoo the mods finally started banning these filth bag Sarah bashers!!!
Actually, you need to grow up.
I’m sure you’ll retread and be back within a week.
And you will learn absolutely nothing in the interim.
And your life will still be small, pitiful, and full of “Ick, she’s a GIRL” behavior.
You can survive your ZOT at DU, you and the dummies deserve each other.
