Skip to comments.Palin stumps for 'good friend' Perry in Cypress
Posted on 02/07/2010 9:31:35 PM PST by FTJM
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin stumped for Gov. Rick Perry at a rally Sunday in suburban Houston, adding some national Republican star power to Perry's re-election campaign.
I doubt there is another public figure in our country who gives liberals a bigger case of the hives than our special guest today, Perry said. At the very mention of her name, the liberals, the progressives, the media elites, they literally foam at the mouth.
Palin appeared with Perry a day after the Republicans' most recent vice-presidential nominee addressed the first national convention of the anti-establishment tea party coalition in Nashville, Tenn.
Perry is firmly establishment in Texas but has campaigned as anti-Washington in his March 2 GOP primary race against U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. He is seeking a third four-year term that would add to his tenure as the longest-serving governor in Texas history.

Go Medina GO
For starters look up Debra Medina's column 'Latinos and the GOP'
'Its a shame isnt it, that Republicans continue to ignore Hispanics especially here in Texas?' Debra Medina
'Ignore them', Mrs Medina? Since when? What more do you want? Or shouldn't we ask?
Who is going to think more about Latino families? Rick Perry, Kay Bailey Hutchison or me, who has a Latino family? (Medinas cultural heritage is German and Bohemian.)
She told a colleague last month in an e-mail. Being married, however, to someone with a Mexican American heritage, I certainly embrace the culture. But before she explained that, she told my colleage, who had asked her whether she considers herself Latina: Id not consider myself anything other than a wife and mother, a nurse and a patriot. I believe we too often get into race when its immaterial.
No, Thanks, Mrs Medina.
She is also running Spanish ads. Hello Mrs.Medina! If they cannot speak English then they have no business voting IMO. When they learn English then let them vote. Assimilate. Learn English. Appreciate all America gives you.
So Im sure she is blowing a lot of hot air just like Obama did just to get elected. Running those ads and saying what she has, tells me the border issue is just a try to get votes for herself.
Medina is about as qualified to be Governor as zero was to be President- want to re-visit how that is working out? She's a Libertarian running on the Republican ticket. She is supported by the Ron Paul worship crowd and she herself has acted in the Ron Paul worship capacity. She has demonstrated a lack of knowledge about Texas law and current ballot initiatives.
No, thanks, Ill stick with ol RINO Perry. Texas has remained in better shape than almost any if not all of the states in the union under Perry's watch. As someone said, 'he's the devil we know'.
The motly crew running for governor is laughable; a MUSLIM, a trecherous RINO woman* (Hutchison) and a woman with questionable loyalties
*Feds Have Built Only 32 Miles of 700 Mile Double-Border Fence Originally Mandated by Congress One reason DHS has been able to do this is an amendment that Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R.-Texas) slipped into an omnibus appropriations bill that Congress passed on December 18, 2007. Hutchisons amendment put a loophole in the fence law that allowed the secretary of Homeland Security not to build the fence Congress had mandated the year before.
But pissant haven’t you heard, Medina “loves Sotomayor” and wants everyone to do to “drugs legally”?
Didnt Palin said to challenge incumbents?? She is a disaster. *watches palinistas heads explode*
Rand Paul is enough Paulism as it is :/
Who’s the muslim?
I’d take a libertarian over a RINO 9 times out of 10.
Yeah, I guess your weak little dig at Palin just knocked the wind right out of her sails.
Wake up, Marie. History is playing out before your very eyes. And, a very good history it is.
“The GOP really need look no further than George Lopez’s tear into KBH’s vote against Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor to see an example of the seriousness of potential Hispanic voter back lash.” Debra Medina
KBH is the open borders queen. WHe and the other Texas Queen, along with Perry, sh*tcanned the border fence. She is worthless, and has been as long as I can remember. Perry is equally squalid
My wife and I will be voting for Debra Medina. But, if it was between Perry and Ted Kennedy’s girlfriend, Kay, we’d be going with Perry all the way.
I get the feeling that Goodhair will be Palin’s running mate should she get the nomination.
Do you have a source for that? If so, I and everyone I know who plans to vote for her will cast our vote for Perry instead. GIVE ME A SOURCE PLEASE.
I think Vaccine Ricky will be running for the presidency himself if he wins Texas again. For that reason alone, KBH is preferable.
The reason that concerns me is that Palin herself has said that we need to challenge incumbents.Perry is weak on immigration now that he wants to be re-elected he’s is suddenly tough on issues that he would never take any action.Oh and Mccain has also been inside the beltway and need to be replaced. But since you blindly follow her every word you would not notice that would you?
I get the feeling that Goodhair will be Palins running mate should she get the nomination.
That would be a mistake. She doesn’t need him to carry The Lone Star State and besides, he is an empty suit. But, at least he’s not a “Moderate” like Kay.
You have that right as for Perry he was not ashamed to be associated with the tea party movement from the start. Hutchison and the rest of the crowd is much worse. Palin isn’t playing small ball.
Farouk Shami [D]
Kay Bailey Hutchison has become quite liberal since going to the Senate in ‘93. She is a closet pro-choicer and voted for Obama’s Stimulus Plan. And, she “loved” Ted Kennedy.
It was sarcasm.
Yeah, I know. Puts her on par with vaccine Ricky. But at least she won’t be cluttering up the GOP 2012 presidential nomination race if she wins.
Kay Bailey’s ads speak of “cronyism.” But Kay has her own set of cronies, and guess Perry makes them feel left out. We don’t know much about Medina. As you say. Perry is the devil we know. White is just another pol looking to move up.
Perry....is seeking a third four-year term that would add to his tenure as the longest-serving governor in Texas history.
I’m sure by now everyone has heard of the Muslim candidate running in the Dem Primary named Farouk Shamir. He is spending $10 million of his own money to win the Governor’s seat in Austin.
You post that "Sarah Palin is a disaster" and think it's amusing to watch "palinistas" heads explode.
Good luck with that. All you've shown is your contempt for Sarah Palin, who is the one person with the ability to lead our nation and she singularly commands the largest crowds where ever she goes!
I’m not for KBH but I do support her vote against Sotomayor. Someone who is willing to bring out the race card on that issue is not a winner.
No, I've watched and listened to Gov. Palin since she first hit the national stage, and have agreed wholeheartedly with everything she's said and done, thus far. She stands for everything that I stand for, and has an exemplary track record of deeds to back it up.
Sorry if I don't hate her, as you obviously do.
Is there a political figure you like better than Sarah Palin? Obama, perhaps?
You know, you really are out of step with what most conservative think about Sarah Palin.
Someone who supports killing babies ain’t one either.
Get used to these words: President Sarah Palin
You can also throw in these words: First Dude Todd Palin
I put that comment because if anyone even utters a negative comment about Palin or disagrees with her, people will call you a troll or will say that you fear her when in reality whe should not be trusting anyone inside the beltway. I have no loyalty nor do not admire sheepishly any politician to be honest I dont trust her at all. I also think for myself, the people who defend Palin from being attacked are as bad as the ones that defend Obama.
Someone who supports killing babies aint one either.
Another thing that Sotomayor supports...
Wasn’t Perry cool on Palin during a Con event about a year ago?
Just like KBH and Perry’s butt boy RUdy.
True, and sad.
You have to remember that Palin was subjected to so many totally vicious and disgusting attacks that a lot of her supporters are just sick and tired of every little dig. You can’t just throw in a gotcha about supporting incumbents and then supporting Perry. Who cares?
I’m more concerned about the fact that Palin expressed support for a road to citizenship...
Is there a political figure you like better than Sarah Palin? Obama, perhaps?
I have no idea what makes you think I am a follower of obama. I have NEVER supported him,just becasue I disagree with her that automatically makes me a liberal?
Whew. First of all, she is not from "inside the beltway." She's never held elected office outside Alaska.
Secondly, I can see that you not only do not trust her at all, but also that you hold her in contempt; that you think she is trying to co-opt the Tea Party for her own gain.
I think you're both misinformed and uninformed.
Bingo I have that exact problem with Palin. I have no idea if she was tough on illegal immigrants while she was Governor of Alaska? Has she even mentioned the problem of illegal immigration? But I cant ever comment on that because I will be attacked by followers of Palin.
I hope not...
I'm for Perry in the Texas primary because he is the least onerous of the three IMO and he has done some good things.
But I do not want to see him elevate to Washington.
Folks can say what they will about Rick Perry, but you've got to give the man his due. At a time when most politicians (D and R) were all either ignoring or laughing at the Tea Party, he was on stage with the folks, giving the movement encouragement.
Some might say that that was simple political opportunism, but I disagree. The "smart money" at the time was steering far away from the Tea Party. Perry took a huge political risk to associate himself early on with the movement.
Perry's something of an enigma to me. He's got that smarmy sort of politico aura about him, but what he says (and mostly does) comports with what I need and want in a governor.
For one thing, you can't argue that under his stewardship, Texas has out-performed nearly every other state in the union, on the economic front. What that says to me, is that he's simply managed to stay out of the way of the wealth builders in the state, and has not done things that would interfere with the Texas economic machine.
Palin isnt playing small ball.
You've got that right. I knew that, from the first moment I saw her. So did the libs, which is why they'll do anything to sabotage her path to the White House.
She is slowly becoming part of the beltway. I see her taking every opportunity to put herself in front of a camera,not mentioning the issues that affect our lives like illegal immigration, the deficit,the terrorists etc... We should be trusting ourselves and not putting this genuine movement on the hands of anyone else .
You got that right.
Some millionaire muzzie in Houston named Farouk is running as a Democrat.
He makes great hair products and trains great stylists.
I'm not sure, but she's not campaigning for office at the moment, either. At least, not on her own behalf.
een if she is not campaigning she has to take a stand on issues. To be honest, I was a big supporter of Palin in 2008 and early 2009,then I saw that she is becoming very vague on issues that affects us all and that is the reason I no longer support her blindly..<p.(Im not accusing you ospecifically,allegra, Im just throwing that out:D )
Nobody should "admire sheepishly" *cough!* any politician, but surely there are one or two you respect to some degree?
Let me guess....those would be Libertarians?
An August 14, 2006 report produced by the Congressional Research Service listed 31 cities and counties that have “don’t ask, don’t tell” sanctuary policies in place. They are:
* Alaska and Oregon both have state-wide policies that forbid state agencies from using resources to enforce federal immigration law.
“([Alaska] House Joint Resolution 22 - May 2003) Establishes that state agencies and instrumentalities may not use state resources or institutions for the enforcement of federal immigration laws, which are the responsibility of the federal government.”
The immigration issue does apply to Alaska and we need to know if Palin actually did anything about it.
Please define the beltway.
I'm afraid you are woefully uninformed. Sarah Palin commands media attention but she is also employed by Fox News so you will be seeing even more of her on the FNC.
Sarah is a public speaker in great demand, but she is not an elected office holder, so she doesn't vote on any issues, but her views can and do influence others and her views are entirely conservative.
This genuine movement you speak of is the grassroots efforts of people everywhere and there is no leader, but Sarah Palin was the invited keynote speaker at the Tea Party Nation's first convention. It's as simple as that.
Sarah has her own PAC and she endorses and supports candidates of her choice, including John McCain, John Kasich and Rand Paul so far this year.
I’m not going to replay the immigration game tonight on this thread, It’s grown old and tiresome.
Sarah Palin is against illegal immigration and has so stated several times over.
