No, Rick Perry did not compare Rudy Giuliani to Reagan. He said "he's the closest thing we have to a Ronald Reagan Republican in this race." Perry and Hannity were speaking about Romney, Huckabee, and Giuliani.

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.

There is a lot of that going around, isn't there?

It is truly discouraging...
