Can't be a Conservative if he endorsed Rudy Giuliani.
We all make mistakes and hopefully we learn from them. Compared to Romney, Guiliani IS a Conservative.
Freepers, dont you think it more sensible to trust what the Conservative icons have to say about Perry?
> Sarah Palin threw her endorsement to Rick Perry for governor- and so did Nugent.
Sarah just restated the other day she likes Perry
>Rush said that Perry is his dream candidate. http://gretawire.blogs.foxnews.com/rush-limbaugh-on-the-record-3/
Dont you think it more sensible to trust what numerous politicians and scholars have said about Rick Perry than some haters on FR?

Read the official statements released by dozens of Perrys fellow politicians and scholars (both Democrats and Republicans) have had to say about Rick Perry: http://www.politico.com/arena/archive/rick-perry-for-president-in-2012.html
All (including Democrat opponents) have called him a staunch Conservative, and not one of the dozens issuing opinions has mentioned the vaccine or TTC.
Apparently they dont consider these things an issue.
They DID mention Perry threatening to secede from the unionas a strike against him. He did not issue such a threat- but I wouldnt blame him if he did.
trumandogz, I have a question for you,
Sarah Palin endorsed Perry, calling him a true conservative, while knowing he had endorsed Giuliani.
By your standards does this mean Sarah can't be a conservative?
"Rick Perry is true to conservative principles even when others think the party
needs to go a different direction. I like that about him: he doesn't care which
way the wind blows, he acts on his beliefs. That's why I am supporting
Governor Rick Perry for re-election", Palin wrote.
And Perry was endorsed by Palin.
Sort that one out.
Which candidate do each of you support?
Hmm.. I seem to recall Palin endorsed McCain for the Senate in 2010. Is he a conservative?
Oh PLEASE!!! Santorum endorsed Arlen!
One Leader recognizes another.
Perry endorsed Giuliani for 2008 president AND Perry partnered with RINO Rudy (who is persona non grata on Free Repub) to build the Trans-Texas Corridor......... which allows Mexican trucks to enter the US and traverse all the way to Canada.
DISQUALIFIER Aug. 28, 2007----In Mexico for trade talks, Perry blasts US immigration policies

MEXICO CITY Leading a large delegation of Texas executives trying to drum up business in Mexico, Gov. Rick Perry on Tuesday criticized the U.S. Congress for failing to pass an immigration bill that would legalize millions of workers. "I don't think this is that difficult an issue if Congress would have the maturity to sit down and really discuss it and cut out all the mean rhetoric," Perry said during a break in the third day of meetings with Mexican officials and business executives.

DISQUALIFIER August 24, 2007 ---- TX governor Perry rapped for paving way for construction of Trans-Texas Corridor;
allows Mexican trucks to enter the US and traverse all the way to Canada.

Texas Governor Rick Perry is being called to task by an author and investigative journalist for vetoing bills that would have blocked construction of the controversial Trans-Texas Corridor.
Dr. Jerome Corsi has been one of the leading voices warning the American public about the consequences of the Trans-Texas Corridor, which will be part of a superhighway -- purported to be four football fields wide -- that will allow Mexican trucks to enter the U.S. and traverse the core of the country all the way to Canada.
The best-selling author asserts that Governor Perry cleared the way for construction to begin in his state when he vetoed several bills passed by the Legislature that would have stalled the project.
"Governor Perry has been 100 percent gung-ho in building this road," says Corsi. "The Legislature voted a two-year moratorium, it voted a redefinition of eminent domain -- [and] Governor Perry vetoed them. [On] at least one of those measures, he waited until the Texas Legislature was out of session so it couldn't even override his veto."
Corsi says it is unfortunate that there has been political pressure to get the project started. "The Federal Highway Administration's lawyer wrote letters threatening the Texas Legislature to cut off federal highway funds if they got in the way of this Trans-Texas Corridor," he says.
Corsi believes the same pressure will be applied on other states, like Oklahoma, to go along with the project. He suggests that would mean a loss of more American jobs and could pose a threat to U.S. sovereignty.
April 17, 2011----513 People Crammed Into Two Mexican Trucks Bound for US
TUXTLA GUTIERREZ, Mexico - Police on Tuesday detained 513 undocumented migrants from Latin America and Asia who were crammed into two trucks bound for the United States, prosecutors in southeast Mexico said. The migrants, from Latin America, Japan, China, India and Nepal, "were traveling in inhuman conditions" in the southeastern state of Chiapas, near the Guatemalan border, the local attorney general's office said in a statement. Police stopped the trucks, carrying 240 and 273 people, on the outskirts of state capital Tuxtla Gutierrez early Tuesday, after they accelerated through a vehicle scanner at a police checkpoint, the statement said. Officers chased down the vehicles shortly afterward, it added.
Police detained the Mexican drivers of the two trucks, and the migrants were provided with aid and food, the statement said. Mexican lawmakers last month unanimously approved a law to "strengthen the protection and security" of migrants amid widespread abuse. Rights groups have long criticized Mexico for failing to protect tens of thousands of migrants, mainly from Central America, trying to cross the vast country to illegally enter the US each year. The gruesome discovery of 72 murdered migrants from Central and South America in northeastern Tamaulipas state last August increased pressure on the government to act. Copyright 2011 AFP.

April 12, 2011----US Taxpayers Pay To Upgrade Mexican Trucks, US Trucks Not So Lucky

FR Posted by Biggirl
A story broke yesterday concerning the retrofit of more than 100 trucks from Mexico that do not meet United States environmental standards. Our federal government is paying to upgrade these trucks, yet when the state of California and the EPA set new rules for US-owned trucks, they fine companies who do not comply.
This post is not about the environment, it concerns how US trucking companies are treated by the federal and state government as compared to Mexican-owned rigs. From AzCentral.com. For air-quality regulators, the border creates a legal barrier.
State and federal agencies cant force vehicles manufactured and bought in Mexico to comply with U.S. emissions rules, even though the trucks cross into this country.
So the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality tried a different approach, offering to pay Mexican truck owners to replace old mufflers with new catalytic converters that will reduce harmful diesel emissions by up to 30 percent. The project in effect circumvents the more lax Mexican rules about exhaust systems. (Excerpt) Read more at radioviceonline.com
