We don’t have a candidate as yet. Been waiting to see if the Republicans regained their senses. No sign of that to date, sadly, though.
I didn’t support TARP and neither did Perry.
“None of the candidates, not even Palin, are advocating that. The problem is more complex than that.”
WRONG as usual,Ever run a business in a “Infested” Area?
I didn’t think so.
I’m hitting and running this at the Library right now, so don’t have time to read further, whether you’ve been corrected or not. Rick Perry would not have signed the debt ceiling bill. Said so. Multiple sources all over the net. Google it. Somehow, you got false information.
What a load.
He teams up with a fellow Governor, a Dem, to push a bailout, right in the middle of the debate over a bailout. They pass it, and then suddenly Perry never had a thing to do with it. LOL...
You are unbelievable.
And I mean that quite literally.
No. I never ran a business in an infested area. But I’ll bet you have! Sounds dreadful and something must be done. First things first: lock up the border, like Perry says.
He very publicly supported “cut, cap and balance,” which would have raised the debt ceiling by $2.4 TRILLION dollars.
It is you who is misinformed, not me.
He can’t handle the truth. Refuses to believe facts. Pointless.
But it is clear he did want the government to take action at that time. I think you would be hard pressed to find any real candidate, declared or not, who did not support the government taking action in the 3rd quarter 2008.
I am not saying I agree with it. The government did a lot to create the mess with their meddling in the first place. But I find few republicans that spoke out in mid-late 2008 that was against some form of bailout.
“No. I never ran a business in an infested area. But Ill bet you have! Sounds dreadful and something must be done. First things first: lock up the border, like Perry says.”
Lock up the people that employ these invaders.
Perry is obviously running a progressive style campaign.
You’ll notice all the claims of lying by those opposing him but so far I’m not seeing them offering up any proof of these so called lies.
Who is running his campaign, Media Matters?
Enforcing the laws as written is always a good idea. The issue is funding, as it would take an incredible tax hike to pay for it. I mean, these illegals are EVERYWHERE. They’re working in singles up to groups of hundreds. The groups are easier to locate, but that will never eliminate the problem. Greed will always make it a problem, just like drug sales. Cutting the head off is the first step, and it’s a doosey.
I gave my word to my constituents in Georgia and to the rest of the American people that I would not vote for any bill that increases the debt limit. Although the Cut, Cap, and Balance bill is a step in the right direction, it still raises the debt ceiling by $2.4 trillion, and we simply cannot afford it.
Also missing from the Cut, Cap, and Balance bill is the urgency to pay down the debt by immediately reducing the outrageous spending levels to which Washington has become so accustomed. Unfortunately, the cuts outlined in Cut, Cap, and Balance take effect over a period of ten years. We no longer have ten years to spare its too little, too late.
Undoubtedly, we have to cap spending and we must enact a balanced budget amendment, but Congress can get these tasks done without raising the debt ceiling. I have introduced bills to both lower the debt ceiling and to balance the budget.
Weve been down this road before. Administrations of the past have agreed to raise the debt ceiling on a contingency that cuts would be made in future budgets but those cuts never materialized. Its long past time to stop obligating our constitutional duties along with our budgetary problems to both future Congresses and future generations.
Now, please, explain to me how it is that Rick Perry did not support raising the debt ceiling by $2.4 TRILLION dollars.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: WSJ - Governors Against State Bailouts
December 02, 2008
Hard to believe, but not everyone in politics wants a free lunch by Rick Perry and Mark Sanford
The Wall Street Journal
As governors and citizens, we've grown increasingly concerned over the past weeks as Washington has thrown bailout after bailout at the national economy with little to show for it.
In the process, the federal government is not only burying future generations under mountains of debt. It is also taking our country in a very dangerous direction — toward a “bailout mentality” where we look to government rather than ourselves for solutions. We're asking other governors from both sides of the political aisle to join with us in opposing further federal bailout intervention for three reasons.
Our Founding Fathers were clear and deliberate in setting up a system whereby the federal government would only step in for that which states cannot do themselves. An expansionist federal government of the last century has moved us light-years away from that model, but it doesn't mean that Congress can't learn from states that are coming up with solutions that work.
In Texas and South Carolina, we've focused on improving “soil conditions” for businesses by cutting taxes, reforming our legal system and our workers’ compensation system. We'd humbly suggest that Congress take a page from those playbooks by focusing on targeted tax relief paid for by cutting spending, not by borrowing.

Not recent political spin but rather what he was saying years ago.
Yeah. He figured out real quick he was on the wrong side of that.
...Act? Thought they were representatives, not leaders. They're supposed to VOTE, not use legislative orders, which are "ACTS"!!!
...Time for US citizens to "ACT"!!!
