It’s so much nicer to watch Perry speak, than Obama...

Romney and ObamAA+ must be shaking in their boots now. I think once Romney drops out Palin will come on. I think that’s the reason why Perry’s in now. He’s to rid the primaries of Romney.

I hate to say it (being a Palin supporter) but I got the same feeling I got listening to Ronald Reagan speak back in 1979 when Carter was still President and it was campaign time.

If Willard Romney mimicked Huckabee’s So-Con stuff and had Texas bravado, he’s be Rick Perry.

I am very interested to see if and how Perry is going to go after Mittens. No one at the debate was hitting that fool. I really hope Perry does.

They have a good webmaster. I noticed that a lot of sites like this are using flash. While I'm still supporting Bachmann I haven't gotten my bumper stickers and I ordered them a few weeks ago. I want the signs and stickers to piss off the liberal neighbors (I'm in Crook County, IL home of Zero).

If anyone has any Bachmann signs they can mail please FReepmail me so I can get some, nothing makes me happier than driving liberals crazy :)

CAIR supports Obama, why are you spreading misinformation.

Watch Perry speak — it will warm any conservatives’ heart.

His web site states “A true conservative, Rick Perry is the only Texas governor since WWII to cut general revenue spending. He signed historic tax cuts and some of the strongest lawsuit reforms in the country. Since June ‘09, more than 40 percent of all net new jobs in America have been created in Texas.”

“cut general revenue spending”? Not sure I fully understand what he is saying

cair supports him. That leaves me out.

What I heard is that a CAIR spokesman said that there are some politically conservative Muslim American voters who support him -- not CAIR itself.

Right now, my candidate is Jim DeMint, and with a virtual tie for second between Perry, and and Palin. Problem is the attack dogs from the Palin crowd have gotten so vicious that I think I may be trending toward Perry.

Calls Obama an “abject failure” — we need this kind of “plain talk”. ;)

Not sure Gov Perry has much standing on border control, however.

That may be his Achilles’ heel, where Romneycare is Mitt’s.

Of course CAIR supports Obama! He is in line with them!!!

Those bastards are the reason Michael Savage has been thrown threw hell over the last 5 years!!!

They want Sharia Law, want to kill us or convert us and have propaganda of the likes of Goebbels!!!

Organizations I hate the most in order:
1) CAIR (terrorist loving group)
2) Media Matters (gay facist website)
3) La Raza (brown supremest group)
4) Everyone funded by George Soros

I can assume you all will figure out the other groups I despise but everytime I hear CAIR I need to vent against those terrorist defending scumbags!!!

“I think he may be the one!”

Well, speaking as a girl here, I’m just feeling I’ve got to get this out there, on the record.

He is VERY handsome, he’s like TV star handsome.

OK, see I said TV, not movie star.

But he’s a good looking guy. And sorry, today that matters.

Not that any of the others running are bad looking, and hubby’s got a major crush on Bachmann, but this one’s a hottie.

Maybe Perry will get the nomination and go on to win the Presidency...

And then 4 years later we'll all be here on Freerepublic going "How could we be 28 Trillion in debt? Rick Perry said the right things... 80 million illegals, how could that be? he wore a COWBOY hat... Fifteen new Federal Govt Agencies? I don't understand... he had prayer meetings and everything....

We had high hopes for another "tough talking Texas Conservative" not too long ago.

Problem is the attack dogs from the Palin crowd

Let's be very clear. This is a very vocal, visible and enthusiastic group on THIS board. It is NOT reflective of the electorate at large.

I have no problem with Palin doing what she does well. I do have a serious problem with seeing her as a viable choice to defeat Obama.

I am on record here, fwiw, that she will endorse Perry. We shall see about that, I know.

I can’t help it, but as I’m listening to Perry speak, I’m hearing George Bush. He sounds just like George Bush. Just as long as he doesn’t act like George Bush, I’m ok with that. But the intonation is eery.
