Your first link is to a GOP governor’s press conference where Rick Perry is not at all mean to Sarah, in fact he keeps encouraging her to step back to the microphone even as they’re being cued by event schedulers to cut it short.
When you do these kinds of postings you always overreach and it only reflects badly on your candidate — as it looks like you MUST lie (and you are more than willing to do so) to keep her viable.
......>>>The heart of the community is Paint Creek School, which was established in 1937 and has an enrollment of about 160, about 50 more than when Perry attended. "No Dream too Tall for a School so Small" is the school motto.<<<<..... Rick Perry's roots in little Paint Creek run deep
Do you never tire of posting that? And, more importantly, can you comprehend that no one is buy it? No one?
“buying” [absolutely no morning coffee yet]
Speaking of whoppers, CW ...... come on, Sarah doesn't need people to "lie" to "keep her viable". She's plenty viable, no matter what you or Rick Perry do or say.
Try something else.
Then why did he post that?
I have such a head-ache!!! I just want that s.o.b Obama OUT of the White House.
Nearly ANY Republican would be an improvement!.
Perry is a middle of the roader. He’s far better than the Romney- Christie bunch. He probably has a better chance than some of the more conservative candidates we would prefer.
I would like to see a Perry/Bachmann or Bachmann/Perry ticket and I hope and pray Christie and Romney do not wind up ANYWHERE in Washington D.C.
He's quoting Human Events, a conservative publication. Notice the quotation marks -- direct quotes.
Any reason "nobody" should "buy" it? Is it true, or not? If it isn't true, do you have a link to a better source than an eyewitness report in Human Events? Did he misquote them?
Let me just say that I will vote for whoever the Republican nominee is vs. BHO. But, I am concerned that a sizeable number of independents WILL NOT vote for another Governor from Texas, period. Very probably sizeable enough to swing the election to BHO, no matter how much he screws the pooch. Is that fair to Rick Perry? No. But then life often isn’t fair.
I like Perry...were he a Texan fresh on the national scene...no worries at all. But I guarandamnteeya..if he is the Republican nominee..that by August 2012...the general public won’t be able to tell him from Dubya...and the Independents will STAY HOME.
I had forgotten about that, glad he posted it.
Especially true if Rick Perry exhibits some of the same mannerisms as Bush. Nope, not fair at all. Just like it wasn’t fair to Jeb Bush that his brother ruined his chances of being POTUS. Or anyone else from the Bush family for at least 2 more generations. From everything I’ve read, Jeb might have done a much better job than W—but we’ll never know.
Not necessarily, I have an “obama voting but fed up” friend who absolutely hates Bush and is concerned about Perry for the exact reason you state, but he will vote for Perry if he is the candidate, or Mitt. I still have more convincing to do get him to confirm that he will vote for Palin too if she is the candidate.
The depth of Obama disgust among so many of those that voted for him is very deep, so deep that many of them would vote for George Bush over Obama if that was the choice.
This writer is a smarmy RINO who obviously back Romney.
It’s a hit piece, covered in ketchup.
Who WILL the "independents" go for? Give me a name.
Some will obviously go for BHO. Don’t underestimate the degree to which the MSM is in the tank for him or their influence. Starting in Sept 2012, they will pull out ALL the stops to get him reelected. Not sure if a majority will be fooled, but enough might be—especially the women. And that goes for college kids/Twenty somethings too. A lot of independents might also stay home or vote third party as a “pox on all your houses” protest.
Unlike many here, I think that BHO will be very hard to beat despite his poor performance. Its critical that we don’t nominate someone with an existing handicap among voters or someone who will self destruct (ala, McCain).
If Perry is the nominee, as I suspect he will be, he faces some hurtles from the standpoint of campaigning.
Due to his Christian beliefs, the left will make him a caricature of the southern evangelical. However, this is not a strategy without its risks to the left. Many people are increasingly angry about the entire liberal agenda and this could be viewed as extremely mean spirited.
They will also paint him as being Bush III. The problem here for them is that their guy is becoming so despised that even Bush III would be able to beat him.
Trying to attack Perry's economic record in the face of the national picture is a losing strategy for the Dems also. Obama has NO record to run on here.
The biggest issue will be turnout and that implies unity. If Perry can unite all factions of the Republicans and non-Republican conservatives, he will win handily. This should not be that difficult to do since I would hope almost anyone would welcome a Conservative Democrat circa 1960 at this point.
And who would that be?
