OK just touching base with Perry.

I don't think he's still got Presidential ambitions, but if he does he could still made a serious run of it.

If he does, he has to somehow run stronger than last time, but he was one of my favorite candidates. We will see next week, anyway.

I don’t think there is any way he would announce for a presidential bid that early.
It would just make him a target early.

Heck he was the last person to enter the race last time and EVERYBODY pounced on him right away.

Perry is not presidential at all. However, run for governor and then Senate someday. That is much better than his perpetual loser run for President every 4 years. He would be awful for the country but fits perfectly in Texas.

Texas has two Senate Seats. Anything to keep Perry out of the White House is fine with me.

Cornyn I assume. He's up for election next year.

John Cornyn is up in 2014, but really I was thinking that Perry run for Governor a gain and then run for Senate at another time. Although getting rid of Cornyn would not be terrible.

Only because nobody has any morals today. This is the perfect ticket to ever run. Unfortunately American has gone so low on principles and morals that these two perfect candidates don’t have a chance. Even FREEPERS on her are very immoral and not principled like they should be.

Perry had a rough run in 2012.

I would Iike for him to be the Chairman of the new NFPC (National Freedom Party Committee) He has the donors and the hooks into everything a chairman needs to do.

Then he should announce the slate of Freedom Party Candidates for 2014 which are going to primary the RINOS and take open Rat seats.

Not sure if I agree with your accusation.

FR includes a lot of people who are unhappy with the way things are in America today.

Including with many “traditional” Republicans.

I feel a lot of the unhappiness with the GOP and the Democrats both, is true and based deeply in patriotism.

A case could be made, that FR represents better morals, to the extent we are attempting to force the GOP to get back to ... patriotism. Both in support for policies, and in economics.

America first.

What I mean by my post is that people sold their principles to the most liberal candidate ever to run for President under the Republican name. Romney! That is tragic that principles go out the window so easily. Sad really.

I get your point, but there is more to that topic than Romney.

A lot of Americans at the moment have conflicting sets of things, they seemingly hold at the same time.

On one hand, they are all for a strong America.

But then on the other hand, they are all for sending American industry to a communist country China. Or another nation.

So our military is now facing declining budgets, and our government is spending ever more to bring along massive numbers of functionally useless people, because their jobs have been sent overseas.

Bring back American jobs. Now.

Implement laws to protect and build American jobs.

We cannot have a strong America, by sending our jobs to China.

Sorry I got off-topic there, bringing this back on topic now.

Perry if he were president now, would have America booming.

Like Texas, but much, much bigger.

Perry has what it takes. I hope he runs for President again.

I’ll be rooting first, for Palin. And perhaps Cruz, but Perry would be in my top 3 currently.

Perry would be great in office for the reasons you mentioned, but he didn’t do a great job campaigning. (George Washington probably wouldn’t have done well either campaigning!)
And not to be negative; but some people would complain he isn’t conservative enough also. (Perry, not Washington!)

Saddest post I have read on Free Republic in 8 years. He has love for illegal immigrants which is against conservative principles. Hopefully you will change your mind on this liberal Republican.

Is this true?

Please provide some detail. Not saying it is, or is not correct. Just trying to learn something.

I am not in Texas, so do not get a great deal of detail on Perry at the moment.

Thanks in advance.

That is just one of millions of articles that show that Perry LOVE illegal Aliens. He told conservatives that we are heartless and don’t care about people if we are against illegal immigration. He also fought hard to have illegal aliens have college tuition at the cheapest prices possible. He is one guy who will not back down on his love for illegal immigration. If it were up to him, he would IMMEDIATELY make all illegal immigrants American Citizens today especially on the Fourth of July. Perry overall is NASTY!

I disagree on a couple of points. Perry is not liberal. The saddest posts I read are from conservatives who dog out good conservative candidates who they percieve as not perfect. The perfect conservative did not run in 2012. Nobody has even announced yet and you are already bashing a strong conservative with a real record of accomplishments. Guess what? The perfect conservative will not be running in 2016 either. The RNC knows that and loads the field with conservatives who have no chance of winning. They play them off against each other and use them to take out any conservative who has a real chance to win which results in the GOP-E preferred candidate getting the nod, ala Romney in 2012. Keep it up. The GOP-E loves it and will use the same strategy to give us Christie or Jeb as nominee in 2016.

Perry is not liberal.

He LOVES Illegal Aliens. That alone is a liberal stance that will cause more damage to American than anything else. We have two PERFECT candidates who ran in 2012 and that was Bachmann and Santorum, but liberal Republicans and FREEPERS would rather have liberal Romney. Sad state of America.

Oh gag. You illegal alien lovers kill me. You want to destroy America. Thank God Perry is in Texas. He is better for that state. Look at how he is banning abortions after 20 weeks. You should be happy about that. I know I am. I think Perry is better in Texas. The ONLY thing I worry about Perry in Texas is his love of illegal aliens and Texas eventually turning blue because of Perry.

I don’t see how running for Gov again would constitute “exciting new plans”. It’s not like he hasn’t been there done that a few times.

Running for Senate, OTHO...

So far as I can tell, Cornyn and Perry came up through different avenues in Texas. Cornyn was hesitant to endorse Perry in 2011.

It would explain something that has been nagging me about Texas politics: why is AG Abbott (he strikes me as a Perry ally) running hard for Texas Gov if Perry is going to enter the race. Surely Abbott already knows the answer to that question and would “wait his turn” if he knew Perry was running again.

Combine AG Abbott running for Gov with the fact that Perry needs to be in elective office to have a shot in 2016 and I’ve puzzled over why Abbot is out there running now if Perry needs to run as well.

Perry running for Senate would answer that question. I think He’d easily beat Cornyn. It was would add Washington experience to his Executive experience and raise his profile in ways that being Gov. again in 2016 wouldn’t.

It has also surprised me that Cornyn hasn’t fielded a Texas insider to run against him in the primary. He’s certainly vulnerable. He acted like he was going to have a legit opponent by opposing the immigration bill (something he supported until the final vote). Cornyn’s vulnerability is the kind of opportunity people like Staples or Combs should jump at - but nothing so far.

Perry opposing Cornyn makes some sense in the above context. Just some speculation on my part.

I’m sorry I bought into the RINO Perry stuff early on during the last election. It was totally untrue. I hope he decides to run again in 2016. I would be glad to vote for him.

Actually I do not remember Perry ever saying that and even you would have to admit that he has spent a bunch of Texas money trying to secure the border, which is a federal responsibility. He is left to deal with the problems caused by the feds failure to do anything on the border. I don’t have much of a problem with anything he has done here. Perry does have one quality I really like; he doesn’t forget who brought him to the dance. I remember back around 2004 or 2005 he signed a parental notification bill on a church’s property. The lib media went nuts and a reporter asked him why he was alienating people by doing that. He replied with something like the people who were upset wouldn’t vote for him anyways, but the people at the church would. That impressed me and has stuck with me because basically I don’t trust politicians and all I require of a politician is that he remember who brought him. I also like that if he catches enough heat from his base on a decision he’ll change it, which I believe is proper. As far as Bachmann and Santorum go I do not agree they are perfect. Anybody that thinks any politician is perfect is wrong in my view. I do not know what they would do if they were in an executive position and neither do you because neither one has ever been there. I know they have both done things I was not happy with (for example Bachmann accepting large farm subsidies while railing against big government and Santorum backing Specter over Toomey come to mind), but most politicians do that at some point. Obama showed us all how easy it is to mask your real agenda when you are part of a larger group such as a Senator or a Congressman. That is why I prefer candidates with executive experience in either government or business to those that have none.

I don't think he's still got Presidential ambitions, but if he does he could still made a serious run of it.

If by serious, you mean trail behind Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and quite a few others, then sure.

I'm not counting him out, Perry is attractive to some. He is close with the La Raza leadership and respects them a great deal, he pushed for guest worker programs before it was popular for Republicans to do so. He believes a huge border fence is nonsense. He went to China and convinced them to spend billions on buying up access to Texas oil and gas. He's got the credentials for bringing in some Hispanics, he's got a lot of foreign policy experience - didn't see Obama getting the Chinese to spend billions on buying up our oil and gas.

But he has to overcome the problems he had in 2012, and he has done nothing to do that, while Cruz, Rand Paul, and many others have surged ahead.

We didn't sell our principles out, we were just outnumbered by liberals pretending to be Republicans. Or rather liberal Republicans pretending to be Conservatives.

Romney was not our fault. Neither was McCain. Nor Bush, Dole, or George H.W. Bush.
