Second, Gardasil. Doing what you think is right without regard for the Constitution or individual Rights smacks of the sort of 'ends justify the means' mentality we're seeing out of DC now. I don't need any more of that, no matter how well intentioned.
Illegal aliens are, by virtue of being here illegally, doing something illegal. (D'oh.) Regardless of other criminal acts, that is one, and one should be enough.
Islam isn't our friend, although it might play nice to get more of what it wants before the vests go on and the bombs go off.
EVERY, yes, every candidate needs to come under the microscope.
This isn't some d@mned Texas A&M game (kindly save the pep-rally for after the vetting), this is the election which will likely decide the future of this country.
We've all seen candidates who made the 'right' moves, did the 'right' things, said the 'right' stuff, and did not deliver.
We've seen people promise the moon and stars, and when the election is over, they moon you.
We don't have the time to diddle around with another term or two of half-fast measures and sentiments.
As for Gov. Perry, I'm glad he knows which end of the horse is which. That way, there'll be no excuse for being on the wrong end of things.
I haven't made up my mind, but I'm seeing as much not to like as there is to like, and much which could be 'packaged' either way.
But my impression remains that he is the one to split the Bachmann vote and get Mitt the nod.
Mitt's toast and why the Bushes and Rove are trying to push Paul Ryan into the race.
Smith is not praising the Governor. He manages to end with a smear every time. Not surprising, since this is the guy from the NPR/UT online news that took money from George Soros this year.
The jobs smear is especially bad. Texas’ unemployment would be 2.3% if it weren’t for all the people moving to Texas. Our median income hits just about the same as the average in the US;$15 or so, meaning that a lot of those jobs must pay very well. The fact that we do have so many employed affects that “most minimum wage jobs” number.

As to the “middling grades, we’re still waiting on Clinton.’s and Obama’s transcripts. Why do only Republican’s grades end up on the ‘Net?
There are a dozen colleges and universities within a 4 hour drive of Chicago that beat the pants off that one.
Sure, they've got some top end staff but the student body is not the best ~ and most will never get to study under one of the big dogs.
It's like paying Harvard/Yale tuition and getting a Junior College edumacation.
Perry will rapidly get name recognition and easily beat Romney. He already has, even with Bachmann having won the Ames poll.
None them. There may be strong sentiment for this among a high number of Americans but not among the majority of Americans. WE lost. Deportation is not going to happen.
The best possible REALISTIC solution, will end up being real border controls to STOP the flood of illegals, a system of worker registration, with some controls and conditions over who is eligible- or not- to apply for citizenship... maybe a decision to end or severely limit birthright citizenship (you think a democrat will lead that one?) And some return to ensuring national pride, assimilation and loyalty to the US are part of the citizenship process.
Plus a foreign policy team and ideology that stops groveling to Mexico, stops kissing up to other despots and radicals in Central America, and expects brown people to deal with their own corruption that is tearing their countries apart and adding to our own instability.
Oh, and defund and SCREW La RAZA.
So who do you think will serve our national interests better in tackling immigration and putting us on path to stop the abuses and to stop this being a destructive issue?
obama/napolitano/Eric Holder? or Rick Perry and his administration?
Some conservatives can hold out for mass deportation all they want. But mass deportations of mostly economic refugees in this day and age is not going to happen.
It's not the popular majority view, no politician will do it, it's not going to happen. Hold your breath until yo turn blue- it's not going to happen. Refuse to make a donation or to vote. Its not goinmg to happen. Elect Sarah Palin, Jim DeMint, Bobby Jindal, Paul Ryan, Ron Paul - or pick a name - it's not going to happen. Stand on the principle of deportation. It's not going to happen. The flood will just go around you.
So please consider voting for the guy you most trust at the floodgates. obama, or not-obama.
