Do Conservatives REALLY want Rick Perry to Run? - Vanity
June 25, 2011 | no dems

Posted on 06/25/2011 6:08:32 PM PDT by no dems

Rick Perry:
1. He has done his best to sell Texas' private land to Foreign interests for the I-35 Corridor project which is sometimes called the NAFTA Super highway.

2. He also forced Texas teenage girls, by "Executive Order" to get the HPV vaccine.

3. He supports the IPPF ( International Planned Parenthood Federation). He received much praise from the Democrats for this action, and was demonized by the states Republicans for that choice.

4. Perry also receive a BIG THANK YOU from the Mexican President Vicente Fox for his "Sanctuary Citys" and giving Illegal Immigrants FREE instate tuition to Texas Universities. http://www.youtube.com/watch?f... .

So, If you want to compare Texas to the nation in the 2012 Election (because Texas is a success story right now), then run a TRUE Conservative who is the “most powerful person in Texas politics”, the Lieutenant Governor, David Dewhurst.

The only reason Rick Perry stays in office is because Texas is a Red State and he never has a strong opponent.

I would encourage my FReeper friends to listen to true Texas Conservatives before jumping on the Perry bandwagon.

Not really, but I guess he'd be slightly better than Romney.

To borrow from Mark Levin, I’d vote for an orange juice can over what we’ve got in there now.

While he stands head and shoulders above Obama, I don’t want him to run.

We can do better.

And I might add:

http://commonamericanjournal.com/?p=29220

…Roughly 60 state lawmakers called on Perry to rescind the order. He refused. Just six weeks after Perry put pen to paper, the Texas House rebuked him on March 14, 2007, passing HB 1098, overturning his executive order by a vote of 119-21. The Senate followed suit the following month by a vote of 30-1.

Realizing both chambers had large enough majorities to override a veto, Perry opted to let the bill become law without his signature. On May 8, the day the law went into effect, Perry held a press conference surrounded by women touched by cervical cancer. He bemoaned the tenor of a debate that he asserted had been “hijacked by politics and posturing,” and blamed future cervical cancer deaths on those who opposed his mandate — many of whom were fellow Republicans…

…In response, the sponsor of HB 1098, Republican state Rep. Dennis Bonnen, blasted Perry for “using cancer victims as his backdrop for an issue that he has grossly misjudged.”

“Just because you don’t want to offer up 165,000 11-year-old girls to be Merck’s study group doesn’t mean you don’t care about women’s health, doesn’t mean you don’t care about young girls,” Bonnen added.

And, in fact, two years later the National Vaccine Information Center issued a report raising serious questions over the harmful side effects of the drug. A few months after that, an editorial on Gardasil in the Journal of the American Medical Association declared that “serious questions regarding the overall effectiveness of the vaccine” needed to be answered and that more long-term studies were called for…

Don’t care if he runs or not but I know that I am not going to take the advice of people who spend too much of their time online trashing candidates, about wether or not to vote for them. Bachmann has Red South, Diogenise (or whatever) and a couple others. Sarah had pissant until he went overboard, Mitt has, well, everyone and Perry has you.

Frankly I’d just like to see fact sheets on all candidates, declared and close to declaring rather than take anything an “anti-fill in the blank” has to say.

You show me the perfect candidate, declared or otherwise and I’ll vote for them. That perfect candidate does not exist. We must choose from the human beings that we are presented with.

Perry fanboy responses:

1) You MUST be a purist who wants 100% perfection!!

2) So just who do YOU support anyway? What announced candidate is BETTER than Perry? Stop--naa naa naa I can't hear you! Perry is awesome!

3) Hey, nobody's perfect! Except Sarah Palin's endorsements, of course. They're infalliable.

4) Speaking of Sarah Palin, you MUST be waiting for Sarah Palin to announce. You will trash ANY non Palin candidate, right?

5) Perry is the ANTI-Romney (even though they have a ton of traits in common like perfect hair, mediocre record, flip-flopper who used to be a liberal before it was popular to be a conservative). It's going to be one of two candidates. If Perry gets in, this will be a TWO-WAY RACE between him or Romney. Pick one! (okay, I said that when Trump was being floated, and Cain, and back in '08 I claimed it would be a "two way race" between Fred and Rudy Giuliani)

6) Perry HATER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Note to the GOP / RNC and all their minions, wonks and wonkets. ....

Stop with the flipin' flavor of the week already enough... Get beyond Anger, Denial, and Bargaining and come to Acceptance. Accept the fact all here on FR and probably the Tea Parties want Sarah and nothing else. I will right her in if I have too if you stick one of your little toadies on the ballot...

Rick Perry can beat Bammy Boy by 20 points and is 100x more conservative than the Kenyan. So yes, Rick Perry is conservative enough for me. Not perfect but good enough to drive Obama out of DC

I have to do some more digging into the information highway to find out why Rick Perry appears so liberal. I saw him on Gretta Van Susteren’s show talking about the border problem. He was absolutely furious that the Obama Regime was not giving him the resources to shut down the border. He has asked to talk directly to Obama and has been given the shaft. Whatever Texas is able to do on the border, Texas has done by itself with the minimal of federal aid. He wants the illegals to fix their own problem by making it so tough for them to stay here that they will leave on their own resources. No free bus rides from Amarillo to Mexico.

Personally, also being from Texas, my ticket is Palin/Rubio.

I like Cain, I like Bachmann, I even like Santorum BUT, I really believe in Palin/Rubio as the ticket with the most conservative cajones.

That said, however, I'll take Perry (and/or whomever) over OBozo. Like Rush says; 'even Elmer Fudd can kick OBozo's arse!!'

Again, you’ll have to take the case up with Rush why he dropped Perry’s name out there.

Prior to early May, Rick Perry had no intention of running for President. Then, out of the blue, Rush Limbaugh drops his name on Greta Van Sustern as his “Dream Candidate”. Ever since then, Perry’s paid attention, assuming his entry and Rush’s kind words will tap into that 20 million listener base.

I don’t know why Rush picked Perry. Even as recent as last week, Rush admitted that Perry wasn’t clean with some issues (Dream Act, etc) that voters would have to “get over”.

The only thing I can think of is that Rush is trying to one-up the Establishment GOP. He’s been taking it from them about how he doesn’t have any power anymore because he wasn’t able to stop McCain from getting the nomination, so they consider Rush irrelevant. So I think Rush through out Perry and projected the hoopla that would follow his entry. I think he did this over Palin, because it can be argued that when Palin gets in, she didn’t/wouldn’t need Rush’s direct support, and so Rush couldn’t take credit for steering the GOP nomination towards her (Sarah would do that in her own right). Rick Perry, though, would need a boost.

Just my theory.

How about Perry being honest enough... Perry kept pushing the TTC down Texans throats after years of Texas voters Screaming NO NO NO NO... Why were they screaming no? Because Perry would get a lucrative secret deal with the (forced upon us Spanish contractor)... In addition this TTC fiasco would have by force taken millions of acres of prime land from Texas land owners -— just to profit the power hungry Perry...

I’d vote for an orange juice can over what we’ve got in there now.

And the last two "orange juice cans" we nominated (Dole and McCain) got their butts handed to them on Election Day. Well, I think Dole is Pineapple Juice.

As a Conservative Texan, I think Perry would be no better than Obama.

He is all politician all the time, and he believes in nothing.

I’d vote third party before I’d vote for Perry.

TTC is a dead issue. Today’s deal is who can beat Bammy Boy and Governor Good Hair can do it. FIW I don’t live in Texas but thought the TTC was a very bad deal surrendering US sovereignty and tying us in with that pisshole Mexico

BOTTOM LINE-— I would rather be complaining about a President Rick Perry than a President Obama

My rule of thumb.

If I agree with any candidate on every issue 100% of the time, someone is lying. Either the candidate is lying to me or I’m lying to myself.

It was actually a Mexico to Indianapolis highway ~ with some side routes to Kansas City Missouri (KCMO), and quite probably a major link to Dayton, Ohio for further routing to points East and South.

You do realize there's NOTHING of consequence in any part of Canada that's due North of KCMO. Just forget those routes ~ that was a pipedream.
