Skip to comments.Rick Perry Compares Pro-abortion Giuliani to Ronald Reagan
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.
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. ;-)
No, he didn't, he said on the video interview, quote:
"He's going to be in the mix because he's the closest thing we have to a Ronald Reagan Republican in this race".
Are you denying this?
I have said that here before. There was a mass-culling of Rudy Giuliani supporters from FreeRepublic back in 2008 where anyone advocating for Rudy was banned. Would Rick Perry have been allowed to do what countless others were not? The logical answer is, no. So why is he suddenly the savior of the conservative cause? The logical answer is, he is not.
Perry is a snake who doesn't deserve the Republican nomination nor does he deserve to be POTUS.
"Polls show that people are responding to his tax message, to his war on terror and his strong fiscal conservatism. I mean that is the key here, the people are paying attention to his message and, yes, I think he is going to do well in Florida. I think he going to win Florida."
I will add, that Giuliani did poorly in the Florida Primary and dropped out the day after the election. I guess you can LOL that Perry got it wrong.
Guess Perry doesn't care, either. Nuff said.
One of his comments he clearly stated:
“He’s going to be in the mix because he’s the closest thing we have to a Ronald Reagan in this race”.
I listened to the video 3 times.
And you deny this?
One of his comments he talked about Reagan. Towards the end of the video he made the comment which is the quote I gave you word for word. It was this comment that Perry made the distinction that Giuliani was a fiscal conservative. So, listen to the words in the video and I am sure you will agree that Perry meant that Giuliani and Reagan were the same type of conservatives fiscally. As for a social conservative, I will agree with you, Giuliani was not a Ronald Reagan conservative in that sense.
I'm talking about of freaking comment right in the middle of the stinking video, he clearly stated:
Hes going to be in the mix because hes the closest thing we have to a Ronald Reagan in this race.
Anyone with ears can hear this.
Is this the argument sales department??
A: Come in.
M: Ah, Is this the right room for an argument?
A: I told you once.
M: No, you havent.
A: Yes, I have.
A: Just now.
M: No, you didnt.
A: Yes, I did.
M: You didnt
A: I did!
M: You didnt!
A: Im telling you I did!
M: You did not!!
A: Oh, Im sorry, just one moment. Is this a five minute argument or the full half hour?
M: Oh, just the five minutes.
A: Ah, thank you. Anyway, I did.
M: You most certainly did not.
A: Look, lets get this thing clear; I quite definitely told you.
M: Oh, this is futile! A: No it isnt.
M: I came here for a good argument.
A: No you didnt; no, you came here for an argument.
M: An argument isnt just contradiction.
A: It can be.
M: No it cant. An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.
A: No it isnt.
M: Yes it is! Its not just contradiction.
A: Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.
M: Yes, but thats not just saying No it isnt.
A: Yes it is!
M: No it isnt!
A: Yes it is!
M: Argument is an intellectual process. Contradiction is just the automatic gainsaying of any statement the other person makes.
A: No it isnt.
Yes, he did make the comment about Reagan and Giuliani being conservatives. That is the comment you are hung up on. And, you refused to understand that this comment was without the distinction he later made in the interview. That is the one I quoted which says Giuliani was a fiscal conservative. Why you fail to understand that Perry specified the type of conservative he had in mind with the earlier quote is beyond me. I can’t make myself more clear about it and I cannot understand and am troubled by the dramatics you have put up in your responses.
No, he doesn't care. If he doesn't care that Giuliani is for killing babies why would he care if Giuliani cheated on his wife?
