Posted on 08/16/2011 11:31:26 PM PDT by South40
Rick Perry on Rudy Giuliani: "He's the closest thing we have to a Ronald Reagan Republican in this race".
Slick-Rick apparently thought PRO-ABORTION, PRO-GAY, ANTI-GUN Rudy Giuliani was closer to President Ronald Reagan than was Mike Huckabee, Duncan Hunter, Tom Tancredo and/or Fred Thompson.
Watch as Slick Rick compares Rudy Giuliani to Ronald Reagan.
Rudy is a natural leader. In that respect he is closer to Reagan than Romney. As for Perry, if you are looking for a movement conservative, He is not your man. On the other hand, he is not a compassionate Republican like Bush. He is an old passioned, opportunistic, SOB, who
serves the interests of his friends. He is a conservative in the sense that Lyndon Johnson was a liberal. He likes power.
The Perry folks are holding off posting here...
It’ll take some time to come up with an explanation.
Perry can win against Omobster. If he’s not conservative enough for you in policy, work to make him change to suit you. He does change his mind when persuaded (gardasil mistake), and is a powerful principled leader. We need a ticket that can drive the Omuslim slime and the progressive nationalist socialist pan-lenninists out of power and hopefully out of the country forever.
You must want to give Obama another four years. /s
Quit posting negative facts about Rick Perry.
Only post things that make him look good. No one wants to hear the truth if it’s negative.
I don't support people that aid and abet an invasion of our country. Besides, this isn't about me or who I support.
Any comment on the article/video?
Allow me to pre-empt the typical idiotic Kool-Aid-Drinker responses:
So who’s YOUR pick? You’re a Perry hater. You’re a Paulbot. You’re a Bachmann-bot. You are being vitriolic and divisive. The PDSers are out in full force. The smell of fear is palpable. You are a liberal. So you want to give Obama four more years?
"He's going to be in the mix because he's the closest thing we have to a Ronald Reagan Republican in this race".
You deny this?
It’s going to be really difficult for you when Rick Perry is the GOP nominee isn’t it? I mean, I guess you can try the old, “Well, duh, I’ll just vote duh 3rd party” thing but really you’ll kind of feel left out of the system. I know...life is hard, but as John Wayne said “It’s harder when you’re stupid”.
Let’s say I am looking for a movement conservative.
Who would be my man or woman?
Heh. Good imitation of the Perrybots. But you forgot their "Can't please the PURISTS around here. Geesh, nobody's record is PERFECT! " line (immediately followed by them contradicting themselves and claiming that Sarah Palin's endorsements ARE perfect -- and since Palin endorsed him for Governor, that means Perry is the second coming of Reagan and the best candidate for President)
Do you have any comment on the video, or did you just come to shoot the messenger?
Yeah, that floored me. One Freeper said Perry must be conservative because “Sarah said so.”
He couldn’t think for himself, or examine the record for himself, but once he heard from the Divine Oracle, that settled it.
I swear, these people amaze me.
OMG! What an idiot! Rick Perry is out of his mind. This corrupt, power hungry, lying politician is being exposed completely. Texas please keep this clown in Texas. We don't want him.
Read Michelle Malkin's article where she expose Perry's modus operandi. It's just like Obama and Saul Alinsky's tactics. His tactics in the Merck and Gardasil fiasco is just like what happened with Obama shoving Obama-care down our throats. It was against the will of the people. The legislature had to step in to stop him.
And Sarah Palin also endorsed McCain. So according to their logic, he would make a great conservative candidate too?
And the cute thing, they can't see the irony in their tactics.
Who've I shot?
I asked if it was going to be difficult when Rick Perry was the GOP nominee. I'll ask the same of you.
You have the greatest screen name EVER!!!!
FlyingEagle: “He does change his mind when persuaded.”
You mean forced. Read the story here:
That's because she is for path to citizenship, too. Can't help but wonder if she would be stronger against illegals if Alaska had been swarming with illegals bankrupting the state?
None of them are comparable to Reagan. Not one. But Perry wasn't making a comparison. So the title of your vanity is incorrect.
If I had to pick who was the closest to Reagan among the three of them, I certainly wouldn't pick Romney. So that leaves Huck or Rudy. The former is a social conservative, fiscal liberal and the latter is a social liberal, fiscal conservative. Since the Reagan Democrats liked Reagan's fiscal conservatism, I guess I'd say Rudy was closer to Reagan than Huckabee was.
You present this video as if Perry made a glowing comparison of Rudy to Reagan. He didn't. It's a disservice to FReepers to present incorrect information.
She endorsed Tancredo, too, although she did wait until the day before the election. (day late and a dollar short) Backhanded endorsement?
Since “Unnamed Republican” wins convincingly against Obama, Let’s vote for them instead. Perry is not the only person who can beat Obama. There are better choices.
Rick Perry may not be who he seems to be..
Its hard to remove the democrat from the democrat...
Some republicans may be republicrats.. like Romney..
Ah...we have a path to citizenship right now. Been there for a long time. And she said that she is for people standing in line just like the old days and doing it the right way. So they can go to the back of it behind all the people already there.
Should take about 50-60 years to empty that que out before the first one gets in. A lot can happen in 50-60 years while they wait... on the other side of the border. I like that plan.
Pols have been saying that for decades and look where its gotten us. No further along. In fact we now have 40 million illegals. That is not the progress I was looking for regarding the border. So, that isn't working.
There is a lot of that going around, isn't there?
It is truly discouraging...
Giuliani is pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage, and anti-Second Amendment, and he is corrupt. The only reason he wasnt prosecuted was his crimes werent discovered until after the statutes of limitations ran out.
Anyone who would support someone like Giuliani for elected office does not have the judgement to be president.
The Perry folks are too busy on Facebook (especially Obama's) and in the comment sections under news articles on CNN.com, MSNBC.com and the others rebutting Obama's lies and reminding the American people that Obama had a super majority for the first two terms of his Presidency and that the republicans had only been in control of the House since January (8 months ago).
While the Perry folks attack liberalism, democrats and Obama's policies the others have been attacking our own.
He never actually changed his mind. If he had he would have rescinded his Executive Order instead waiting for the legislature to do it.
Goodness, just a tad heavy on the self-serving ode to noble causes. Perry's got to earn Republican primary votes first, which means he and his supporters have to be able to face legit questions from Republicans about his record. Certainly, "Perry folks" are capable of multi-tasking and defending his record while they're engaged on this great noble crusade against liberalism and all the the rest.
Slick Rick is pulling the wool over a lot of sheeple’s eyes ...Just like Obozo did ...hmmmmmm...
You make some pretty good points. Perhaps the Perry folks figure that with a double digit lead against the former top runner in the Republican field it is they and not Perry that needs to be on the defensive and the Perry folks use the time to go after Obama and his dismal record instead.
....but he is NOT, repeat NOT presidential timber. His methods are fascist and anti-individual. NYC at the time, I suppose, needed a fascist....and seeing as how the dims had made NYC a cross between Marxism and Fascism already, it was no great shakes to have him clean the city in his own inimitable style.
He is not right for America....period. Let him run for either Putzhead Schumer's or Gillibrand's seat in the Senate...he can only improve the senate in comparison to those two pear-shaped losers.....
I will not vote for Rudy for president...period...and I will do what I can against him in either of those endeavors.
A double digit lead five months before a single vote will be counted is pure cotton candy. Just ask Hillary and Rudy supporters how long that stuff fills the belly. Electoral loser history is filled with the graves of double digit leaders.
To sum it up, he’s a thug. Since Perry couldn’t see that, he’s not qualified to be President.
If hes not conservative enough for you in policy, work to make him change to suit you.
Yeah, that always works.
Which is probably the reason why they're going after Obama now and not attacking their own.
We'd save quite a lot of money in the White House if he were President. He'd be President and First Lady all in one.
Michael Reagan says Rick Perry is the most Reaganesque of the group.
The subject is Perry. Why do you Perrybots always have to hang another person on us? I want a Christian Conservative. A real one and not one who is a phony like Perry. I have not found a good one yet except Santorum. Rick can’t get votes going because he backed Arlene Spector in his last election. We don’t need a phony like Perry or Romney.
The man is nothing but a walking, talking set of lying talking points.
No credibility whatsoever.
Folks need to remember that this is not ancient history. This was the LAST ELECTION.
If Perry had said that on FR, in 2008, he would have been zapped.
We can do much better than Rick Perry.
>>I asked if it was going to be difficult when Rick Perry was the GOP nominee. I’ll ask the same of you.
Will I have to hold my nose and hope for the best, given Perry’s record?
Will I vote for Perry over Obama?
In a heartbeat.
Am I deluding myself into believing Perry is a principled conservative?
Not on your life.
>>Why do you Perrybots always have to hang another person on us? <<
Me? A Perrybot? I think you meant to address someone else. ;-)
