A Republican Bill Clinton, minus the people skills, charm and the ability to fake sincerity.
Who's your candidate at this point in the cycle? If it comes down to Perry or Obama, what would you do...go third party?.....stay at home?
>> unabashed Palinite
Has anyone broke the news to them that Sarah Palin isn’t running?
Nah, we can walk and chew gum at the same time. I think the real reason this is happeneing is because, well, this is just what happens when you run for president. People challenge your record. It's called vetting, its a good thing, and we needed to do a lot more of it than we did in 2008. Mea Culpa. Not gonna let it go this time. Perry's a big boy, and his followers can muster to his defense, and if it works it works. As for now, maybe I missed it, but I'm still waiting for the first pro-Perry post omn this thread to defend the actual charge laid in the article: Did Perry aid and abet the the leftification of the Texas Supreme Court, or did he not? What are the facts? Inquiring minds want to know....
SAN ANTONIO - In the 1850s, on the steps of the Waco courthouse, Wallace Jefferson’s great-great-great grandfather was sold. Today, Jefferson is chief justice of Texas’ Supreme Court. The governor who nominated him also nominated the state’s first Latina justice.
Rick Perry, 61, the longest-serving governor in Texas history and, in his 11th year, the nation’s senior governor, says these nominations are two of his proudest accomplishments.
Mostly lies. All5 of the Perry badgers will be here shortly.
Tired old Rhino smear has been over used and useless now.
BUT Who are you working for/ astroturfing for ??????
I didn’t dis perry. I asked if the story was true. I don’t know. I will research it, but I thought you guys would have some kind of answer since you jumped on here so fast to take personal shots at brices crossroads.
Is the Smith story true or not? That’s all. Zot your own self. That is ridiculous.
BTW, if and when I decide to dis Perry, you will darn sure know it, and it will be with facts, not innuendo, and it won’t be because he didn’t get his fair hearing either.
Everything that has been said about Perry, pro or con, I have done my own research on and I am still thinking on it. Now go and sin no more.
Truth is, this has been going on for some time now and it's getting seriously monotonous.
Why are you asking me?
Have you been directed to trash and attack Perry NOW ?
If your trashing him then Perry is a threat to the Dems power grip !
Sarah is, at this moment, attending the Iowa State Fair. Maybe you should tell HER she isn’t running. Hmmm?
The full quote in context means something different altogether:
"President Foxs vision for an open border is a vision I embrace, as long as we demonstrate the will to address the obstacles to it. An open border means poverty has given way to opportunity, and Mexicos citizens do not feel compelled to cross the border to find that opportunity. It means we have addressed pollution concerns, made substantial progress in stopping the spread of disease, and rid our crossings of illicit drug smuggling activity. Clearly we have a long way to go in addressing those issues. " Wednesday, August 22, 2001
>> Sarah is, at this moment, attending the Iowa State Fair.
AWell, Sarah and 10,000 other people are attending the fair. Not sure what you can read into it.
Besides, she’s a political reporter and pundit. Where would you expect her to be?
uh huh. ROFL
No question, (Rick) Perry is shaking up the race, said Larry Sabato, director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia. Since the beginning of the year, weve expected somebody else to jump in since many Republicans were unhappy about the field. Now we know who is filling the void.
Perry's boots named "Liberty" and "Freedom"
