“and Mexico’s citizens do not feel compelled to cross the border to find that opportunity.”

That is nice high sounding rhetoric but it means nothing. Rick Perry can’t reverse Mexico’s poverty. It just gives him the slightest bit of cover while he pushes the Corridor and incentivizes illegae entry by offering free tuition breaks to illegals.

That is just the fact. He is going to have a hard time explaining this and some of his other positions. It is not an attack to call him on it. He has been sold as a genuine conservative and the more we hear about him, the less he looks the part. He and Romney will be drinking from the same moderate trough, and that helps Sarah Palin. So I welcome Perry to the race. I really do.

Well, Palin is not running (although she did endorse Perry for Governor). I hope you're able to get over this fact.

If you insist on mischaracterizing a 10 year old quote, I think you'll find it's effectiveness is rather moot when people hear it in context.
