Perry said that Giuliani was as "fiscally" conservative as Ronald Reagan.

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?

Watch as Slick Rick compares Rudy Giuliani to Ronald Reagan.
If Perry had said that on FR, in 2008, he would have been zapped.

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.

YOU DID NOT LISTEN TO THE VIDEO! Governor Rick Perry said in the video:

"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.

Speaking of Rudy, from 2006....

High Infidelity What if three admitted adulterers run for president and no one cares?

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?

wow...

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.

Good grief!

I'm talking about of freaking comment right in the middle of the stinking video, 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”.

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 haven’t.

A: Yes, I have.

M: When?

A: Just now.

M: No, you didn’t.

A: Yes, I did.

M: You didn’t

A: I did!

M: You didn’t!

A: I’m telling you I did!

M: You did not!!

A: Oh, I’m 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, let’s get this thing clear; I quite definitely told you.

M: Oh, this is futile! A: No it isn’t.

M: I came here for a good argument.

A: No you didn’t; no, you came here for an argument.

M: An argument isn’t just contradiction.

A: It can be.

M: No it can’t. An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.

A: No it isn’t.

M: Yes it is! It’s not just contradiction.

A: Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.

M: Yes, but that’s not just saying ‘No it isn’t.’

A: Yes it is!

M: No it isn’t!

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 isn’t.

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?
