I plan on doing the same thing here in Commiefornia (Los Angeles...)
“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.
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.
I haven’t heard anyone talk like this except Palin and a little bit from Bachmann.
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.
Yep, but I see shades of Huckabee
CAIR (pardon the pun) to provide a link? What has he done to give aid to radical Islam?
He is VERY handsome. But what comes through most is that he’s so AMERICAN, and he LOVES his country!
Bush bots must be needing a new prince to cover with a halo. No thanks. I’ve seen this story before and had hoped it had withered away for good. Guess not. Que the “Jaws” theme.
That should be the law in ALL states.
I’m watching, but like Reagan and Bush Jr., he supports Amnesty.
I noticed that too. The guy strikes a very Presidential image.
Just announced. I want him to sign a “no path to legal status for illegal aliens” pledge and that he will push for the Sensenbrenner Immigration Reform Bill. His record of giving in-state tuition for illegal aliens needs to be addressed as a mistake.
I’m delighted at this news. Unlike many people here, I don’t hate Mitt Romney, but also recognize that far too many conservatives would not support him. In order to beat Obama and begin to roll back the damage O has done, we need every possible person on the political Right to join together next year. I think more of us can unite behind Perry than any other candidate at this point.
We will not accept our present circumstance we change them.
I wouldn't put it pas CAIR to put that out there just to turn off potential voters for Perry.
Don't get me wrong, I am far from being sold on Perry but do think that Perry would trounce Obama.
I know one thing for sure, getting rid of obama is paramount in this election. Four more year of him would be an utter disaster especially considering he would have nothing holding him back and going to the extreme left.
My hope is that we can get more TP members in the House and possibly take over the Senate too.
We'll need it to keep the White House in line.
It's nice to see someone look at the audience instead of down upon it.
