Posted on 07/24/2011 1:44:02 PM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
Many conservatives and Tea Party activists across the country are eagerly anticipating the entry of Texas Governor Rick Perry into the race for the Republican presidential nomination. Yet Fox Business correspondent Charlie Gasparino suggests that many New Yorkers on Wall Street, presumably of both political parties, are not at all excited about the possibility of a Perry presidency.
I talk to a lot of Wall Street guys . . . you know I dont think a guy from Texas can win again. I just think theres a Texas taint to it all. And I know the big money on the street in New York, I dont think theyre going to go for a Texan.
Instead, Gasparino reveals many on Wall Street are preparing for a match-up between President Obama and Mitt Romney. Apparently the taint of Obamacare, Romneycare or anything else stinking up these two would wash off much more easily than Wall Streets enduring fear of anything affiliated with Texas.

>>>Wall Street are preparing for a match-up between President Obama and Mitt Romney.
they can have it.
i’m not voting.
Yeah, they’re so right. Never in our history has a Texan ever won the presidency...
Well look who’s posting “another” Perry hit thread.
Wall Street guys = cocaine sniffing homos
Yeah Wall Street and the media.
The very same people that brought us Obamageddon. Americans will really listen to these people that have destroyed jobs and the economy by supporting Zero and his minions.
LOL -- I'm posting a lamestream media hit piece.
Taint used to be slang for....oh never mind.
Baloney. We are not nominating the Mittster.
Darn! I guess Perry win New York!
hm... wait.. he wasn’t going to win New York anyway! So who cares.
They like Romney!!!

Taint Your Wagon
This little pissant thinks his remarks will steer money from Perry to Romney.
If he knew so much he'd be making money and not reporting on it.
You’re starting to pound the table Diogenesis.
1. When a reporter says “I talk to a lot of [fill in job here]” theres a 75% chance they’re lying their butts off.
2. As much as I feel that Wall Street has been used as a whipping boy, this election will not be kind to a Republican who is seen as Wall Street’s smiling minion. Yes, I’m talking about you, Mitt.
3. If the Texas taint is bad, imagine the Massachusetts taint...or more properly, the Romneycare taint.
4. Jimmah Carter thought the California taint would work. Toward the end of the 1980 campaign he started running ads featuring dissatisfied Californians who disliked Reagan. Seeing a bunch of San Franciscans ate up about a conservative Republican didn’t exactly do a lot to distract people from the stagflation and massive unemployment, and the fact that Bush and Perry both hail from the same state isn’t going to make Americans forget about Obamacare or a trillion dollars down the crapper with no jobs to show for it.
Oh, and speaking of california taint...anybody think Reagan was hurt by the fact that he and Nixon were from the same state?
“Taints,” like most everything, are bigger in Texas, I guess.
“taint lemon nor lime”
That’s a big “shocker”! Of course, again, everything in Texas is bigger.
I think you are quite right!

Wall Street voted for Obama. They can kiss my ass.
I’m all for Texas seceding and then we will see who’s “tainted”. Texas has all the ingredients to kick America’s ass economically, especially if they go through with Obamacare.
It won’t even be close.

Enthusiasm for Perry at Iowa Event
By TRIP GABRIEL
SEARSBORO, Iowa Rick Perry is not yet in the race for president, but dont tell the the people collecting e-mail addresses alongside tables for other, declared candidates at a gun-rights rally here on Saturday.
In T-shirts reading Americans for Rick Perry, they buttonholed the largely male crowd, who had come to inspect the wares of companies like Chaos Arms and to test-fire a 50-caliber assault rifle, its shell one to a customer, please as big around as an Iowa corncob.....
Excluded from the straw poll on Aug. 13, which is a test of organizational strength in Iowa, the Perry group has shifted strategy. If theres Iowans gathered some place and theyre Republicans, were talking about Rick Perry, Mr. Schoenfeld said.
At the Second Amendment Rally here in central Iowa, Patrick McCormick added his name to about 75 others to receive information. I like Rick Perry, said Mr. McCormick, a truck driver, adding he is still mulling his choices. I really like Herman Cain. And Im interested in Tim Pawlenty......
The Jon Stewart/Ed Helms interview about the taint. It’s pretty funny.
“Youre starting to pound the table Diogenesis.”
What is the largest font size permissible for posting? The only thing missing was all caps, italics and underline. Maybe Genesis needs to make an exodus. As a minimum he should tell us h(is)er domicile and favored candidate.
To be sure Goodhair has his share of faults and I’ve posted a number of criticisms of him myself, but that Al Gore 20+ year old dog won’t hunt. The statute of limitations expired long ago on that one. Goodhair is a down and dirty politician. Goodhair is NOT a RINO. To say that is equivalent to attacking someone you don’t like similar to Demcraps use of “racist.”
I challenge anyone to name one governor (other than perhaps Brewer) that has had more frequent vocal criticism of the regime on MORE than one issue during the course of the past year. If that is not a plus, then a change in medications for those that think otherwise may be necessary.
Cain is fading as fast as Godfathers restaurants. Bachmann has the conservatives for now. If Palin (preferably) or Perry gets in, it’s all over for her.
Taint stop looking............ lol
No more phonies. No more career political hacks. We have the chance to elect a true conservative this time. Nothing else will save the country.
taint that the thing between your ******* and your ****?
You'll have to do better than a southern democrat supporting Al Gore who would have been thought of as a Zell Miller democrat before he hooked up with Clinton, and his support of strong national security Rudy "America's Mayor" Giuliani to make any headway down that path.
So true and worth repeating.
What took you so long?
In 2004, Zell Miller had an ACU rating of 75%.
Zell Miller is not remotely comparable to Al Gore. Miller had an ACU rating of 73% in 2004.
If you go on claiming that Rick Perry is a committed conservative, we will call you on the facts, again and again. Some of us do not want another phony "conservative" shoved down our throats again.
......."During his time in Congress, [Al] Gore was considered a "moderate" (he referred to himself as a "raging moderate") opposing federal funding of abortion, voting in favor of a bill which supported a moment in silence in schools, and voting against a ban on interstate sales of guns. His position as a moderate (and on policies related to that label) shifted later in life after he became Vice President and ran for president in 2000
” What took you so long?” <<<<
Diogenious had to phone home. :) ... Needs more troops. Speak fast before the bots gather like flies at a picnic.
Nellie Doneva/Reporter-News - Amelia Perry(right), mother of Texas Gov. Rick Perry, shows her quilts at a meeting of the Buffalo Gap Republican Woman's Club at Perini Ranch Steakhouse Friday. Perry called this quilt her "Scarlet O'Hara" quilt, because she made it out of a curtain during a time she was getting cancer treatments and spending most of her time at home.
You're going to have to do a lot better than that hype about Rudy being "America's mayor." Rudy had no experience whatsoever with national security. He just happened to be the mayor of a disgustingly atypical leftist city when the terrorists attacked.
If you go on telling lies in order to foist another career politician on the public, some of us are going to call you on it, again and again, until your phony withdraws. Got it?
You’re going to have to do a lot better than that hype about Rudy being “America’s mayor.”
What a lame whine there. On THAT DAY, you must have been the only one sitting in America who would not stand and rightfully call Rudy, “America’s Mayor”. It’s history and it was real, and ole’ Rudy was there, and he was All American on THAT DAY. Not much was anywhere near “hype” with Americans on THAT DAY and certainly not with Rudy.
He'll be in a straitjacket if Palin decides not to run and/or doesn't win the nomination.
