Washington Post ^ | Janury 8, 2012 | Amanda Zamora

Posted on 01/08/2012 12:43:30 PM PST by Cincinatus' Wife

It’s the Republican debate “oops” moment that just won’t die. Texas Gov. Rick Perry got a few laughs during Sunday’s Meet the Press / Facebook debate, but this time he was in on the joke. Today, Perry named all three agencies that he thinks should be eliminated without any help from Ron Paul. Watch.

Energy

Top moments in Sat night and Sun morning NH debates:

Rick Perry: Let’s Put Troops Back In Iraq ["I would send troops back into Iraq"]

....."PERRY: I -- I think we start talking with the Iraqi individuals there. The idea that we allow the Iranians to come back into Iraq and take over that country, with all of the treasure, both in blood and money, that we have spent in Iraq, because this president wants to kowtow to his liberal, leftist base and move out those men and women. He could have renegotiated that timeframe.

I think it is a huge error for us. We’re going to see Iran, in my opinion, move back in at literally the speed of light. They’re going to move back in, and all of the work that we’ve done, every young man that has lost his life in that country will have been for nothing because we’ve got a president that does not understand what’s going on in that region."

Rick Perry calls Obama 'a socialist' in GOP debate

ANDY HILLER:

10:06:46:00 Governor Perry, your party’s last nominee, John McCain, wrote in the Washington Post in an Op-ed about a year ago, his words, “I disagree with many of the president’s policies, but I believe he is a patriot sincerely intent on using his time in office to advance our country’s cause. I reject accusations that his policies and belief make him unworthy to lead America or opposed to its founding ideals.” Agree?

RICK PERRY:

10:07:13:00 I make a very proud statement and of fact that— we have a president that’s a socialist. I don’t think our founding fathers wanted America to be a socialist country. So I disagree with that— premise that— somehow or another that— President Obama reflects our founding fathers. He doesn’t. He talks about having a more powerful, more centralized, more consuming and costly federal government. I am a tenth amendment believing governor. I truly believe that we need a president that respects the tenth amendment, that pushes back to the states. Whether it’s how to deliver— education, how to deliver health care, how to do our— environmental regulations. The states will considerably do a better job than a one-size-fits-all Washington, D.C., led by this president."

Will Rick Perry move troops back into Iraq even without the request or consent of the Iraqi government?

The smarty pants Post writer wrote such a poorly constructed sentence - she should watch her own missteps...

“Perry named all three agencies that he thinks should be eliminated without any help from Ron Paul”

Was Ron Paul’s help in eliminating the three agencies ever relevant to the discussion?

LOL

Why didn't he just say, "In case your forgot about how much of dumbass I looked like a couple months ago, let me remind you........."

As far as his "honesty" goes, where do I start? How about the fact he wore a bracelet in honor of a fallen Iowan Navy Seal, which he received after meeting the parents of the serviceman. He pandered to the Burlington crowd by mentioning the wristwear.

When he doesn't get the results he wanted in Iowa, Perry calls the caucus process "quirky," and implies the citizens are not "real" Republicans.

Does it get more disingenuous than that?

Paul mentioned one agency that truly needs to be eliminated, the Bureau of Land Management. But Paul has also been the only candidate to cut to the chase: returning 500 million acres that were taken by the feds from the states, back to the states.

http://strangemaps.files.wordpress.com/2008/06/map-owns_the_west.jpg

There is absolutely no constitutional authority for this immense land grab, nor any legitimate reason *other* than to deny states the use of their own land. And to keep the “hoi polloi” (us) off land that environmentalists want for their own use only.

Conservatives have rarely said anything about this, but every single president since Teddy Roosevelt has seized ever more state land, in their minds just so that they would have a “legacy” of having done so.

At least Bill Clinton honorably stole land in Utah to pay off one of his major foreign contributors. There are only two major low sulfur coal deposits in the world, and this contributor owned the other one. By putting this Utah coal off limits, it guaranteed them huge profits and a monopoly.

But the heck with all of this. Somebody ask Perry if he will return these lands, or is Paul the *only* candidate willing to do so. If that is the case, we are in deep trouble as a nation.

Maybe Perry can sue the State of Iowa for having a quirky caucus process.

But, why would Perry spend $6 million dollars in Iowa if there were not any “Real Republicans” in the state?

You’re a little confused.

Wearing and mentioning a bracelet is “dishonest”?

Offering a point of view that the Caucus process was quirky is “dishonest”?

Huh?

I agree. He and Rick Santorum shared the joke, lol.

If you notice, Perry seems to get along well with just about everyone who’s running, with the possible exception of Mr. Plastic. That’s not surprising, since Plastic has no discernible personality. But Perry just has a natural likeability about him.

CW, that is just so disarming!

I’ve been a supporter of Governor Perry’s from the get-go and I’ve suffered through his goofs/slip-ups or whatever with all of the rest of his supporters.

And I try to watch him objectively; to listen to him and to try to “see” him through others’ eyes.

If the the early stumbles had been something that had been concerning me about Governor Perry, I truly believe that his response to them would go a long way to clearing that out of my mind.

He’s not dumb and he’s not mindless. He comes across as a “normal” human being with a great sense of humor, enough humility, with some grace on top of it.

Thanks for posting this.

omigosh, with their little tablets in their hands which say on one side that Perry is out of it and doesn’t have a chance, but say on the other side ...’Perry is still a possibility and while that possibility exists, we will try to take him down with our last breaths.’

I cannot believe these people.

Are there no Santorum threads?

Are there no Newt threads.

I know there are no Ron Paul threads so one chose to come
here.

Rick Perry was talking about just that (could have been a video of a townhall in Iowa) -- He said places like Yellowstone and the Everglades would be set aside but that America had over 300 years of energy to tap and that we needed to go get it. He also is not opposed to alternative energy (but not subsidized by the federal government).

Newest SC Polling

1. Romney 30%

2a. Gingrich 23%
2b. Santorum 19%

3a. Paul 9%
3b. Perry 5%


2008 SC Results

1. Lib McLame 33%

2. Conservative Grassroots & Evangelical Favorite HUCK 30%

3. Spoiler Lazy Ass Thompson 15% (who also garnered a whopping 1% in NH, the same as Perry NOW)

Anyone seeing a pattern here?

It’s obviously deja vu...

McLame = Willard
HUCK = Newt/Santorum combined
Lazy Fred = Texas Perry

...if you have a brain.

Rick Perry seems to have a beautiful attitude about life. The ability to laugh at one’s self shows an inner confidence and wisdom. Everyone messes up at one time or another, the trick is to pick yourself up and move on.

It is just important that lands with nothing of great value to them be returned as well as those with exploitable resources. The federals have been actively pushing people off their land by denying them roads and access and water, which amounts to eminent domain without remuneration.

In addition, some candidates need to face the fact that despite the ego trip of ever expanding power to the office of the presidency, the president needs to work with a friendly congress to *diminish* presidential power by law. Removing those tools that have built up over the years by which a president takes power away from congress and the judiciary for his own use.

This would be a humbling experience for any candidate. To state that if elected, he wants less power than his predecessors.

returning 500 million acres that were taken by the feds from the states, back to the states.

An even better idea would be to sell the land to private owners and get it back on tax rolls. The govt. can use the money.

Not really. I made a valid point about a comment another poster made, pointing out the blantant duplicity on parade.

You decided to interject with a critique of Iowa's process. Fair enough for you, but the candidate doesn't get to have it both ways.....especially when he's supposed to be the one with honesty and itegrity.

It's not the first time I've been accused of nit-picking where Perry is concerned. That generally happens when someone doesn't have a meaningful counterpoint. It's probably not the last....at least until after the SC results are in.

Valid? Yes. It's been in place and known for years. Does it need to be changed? Absolutely. The current AG and former ones from VA (some are Dems), along with the challenging candidates concur. So do I.

Even if it gets changed, there will be those that say it doesn't matter because Northern Va is full of liberals. Like Iowa.
