You are kidding aren’t you...the narrowness of his statement is quite glaring. None of the declared and/or undeclared have ever lived in a border state. They have never had to deal with that issue. Perry has done an outstanding job with this one issue. The negatives pushed are taken out of context, misleading and flat out lies. Comparing apples to oranges comes to mind.
Err...that would be “what’s the matter woman...” and I didn’t know Carney was running. As far as I know, the guy knows his way around a campaign, though.
Palin also supported Tarp
Why DON'T we call The United States "The Compassionate United States Of America" or "The Common Sense United States Of America"?
Why doesn't The NFL call itself "The Rough National Football League"?
Why don't hunters call deer meat "gamey flavor deer meat"?
Why doesn't FreeRepublic.com call itself "One Of The Foremost Conservative Websites.com"?
Even Palin says we can’t deport them all.
Not to mention the Texas state budget went from $49 billion to $90 billion under “smaller government” Rick Perry’s watch, when the population only increased by 25% in that same period.
Perry’s voter ID law goes into effect this Thursday. Just in time.
Oh, I know. I was commenting on his “rage” factor. I can’t believe how the tone has been lowered of late. What happened to the flamers?
To 51 - *APPLAUDISSEMENT*
Personally I think people should take a long hard look at your posting record before believing anything coming from you.
Ding Ding Ding. We have a winner. At this point any body looks good. But I will still hope for Sarah. But we are doing what we do every election. We fight amongst ourselves.. And not just disagree but there are people getting nasty to one another. US Conservatives need to stick together. If it means taking a guy that is conservative in most area we believe in then so be it. But we need to end this Obama disaster. If he is re-elected America is through. I should say “if there is an election”.
WaPo picked the Republican they want their readers to fear worse than Bush “the conservative.”
It’s all there, crip. Have at it.
Please provide a source for your assertion that he supported TARP and raising the debt ceiling.
I say he supported neither:
“We are fed up with bailout after bailout and stimulus plan after stimulus plan, each one of which tosses principle out the window along with taxpayer money. We can’t even keep up with all the spending, be it the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), the auto industry bailout, the AIG bailout, or President Obama’s failed $787 billion ‘Recovery Act.’ The list goes on and on.” “Fed Up!” page 5
And raising the debt ceiling $2.4 TRILLION.
Personally I think people should take a long, hard look at your posting history before they pay attention to the drivel and lies you post.
Have you seen any of the polls on Palin, or Perry Vs Obama?
Palin gets crushed and Perry wins. The polls may well be off, or cooked, but if the MSM believes the polls, there is no freaking way they want Perry to get the nomination.
Importantly, instead of fretting about “compassionate conservatism”, which George W. Bush did, in some impressive ways, put into practice, what is far more to the point is the downside to the absolute monster he created, with “high security state conservatism.”
That is, with the Patriot Act and other enabling legislation, W. Bush deleted more constitutional personal liberty and freedom in the United States than any president since Frank Roosevelt.
Though his intent *may* have been against terrorism, only either incredible naivete, or abject paranoia and lust for authoritarianism, could have resulted in such a surfeit of laws, almost NONE of which prevent terrorism, but are applied exclusively to the honest citizenry of the United States.
That is, if the entire Patriot Act, and all the related legislation was eliminated right now, America would be just as safe from terrorism, but we would lose vast amounts of unconstitutional “wartime” oppression of all American citizens.
Yet instead, the “intelligence-police-state” has grown by leaps and bounds, with not just disdain, but fear and contempt for all forms of personal freedom and privacy. Obama, for his part, has allowed this insane expansion of police state voyeurism to continue to grow, unchecked.
To hell with it!
America does not need 16 federal intelligence agencies and 50-100 federal police agencies, with agencies like the department of Education kicking down doors using SWAT tactics, along with most any other agency that wants to do that.
I am indifferent to whatever dementia created this nightmare. Instead, I want Republican candidates to say “enough already”, and promise to scrub the vast majority of this worthless and oppressive authoritarian regime.
The terrorists are “over there”, with just a miniscule number “here”, and most of them long known to the police. So take the WoT “over there”. Don’t force us to live barricaded in our homes, not out of fear of terrorists, but out of abject terror from the steroid-crazed, gun happy, dog killing, door smashing, warrantless terror that our police state nation has become.
The government needs to save money. Eliminating 95% of this crapola is a great place to start.
...Point is, don't hate those on FR that don't vote D OR R. They don't come back screaming, "TOLD YOU SO"!!!...
...End of Story...
I’d like to see some of Perry’s stances on Energy & Defense...do you have any links handy?
“Even Palin says we cant deport them all.”
YOU shut off their MONEY,Then they self deport,Is that hard to understand? Now the ones like Perry who turn a blind eye are benefiting from this or they would act.
That is PUNISH their Employers with Jail and loss of license!
I say: Let them self deport is the solution...ALL US government goodies cease....the flood gates entering Mexico would have to be opened to get the millions out of here. Once, the wetbacks have left set up tight control of the border and if they would like to work here give them work permits...NO US GOVERNMENT GOODIES...ever again.
I say he supported neither:
We are fed up with bailout after bailout and stimulus plan after stimulus plan, each one of which tosses principle out the window along with taxpayer money. We cant even keep up with all the spending, be it the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), the auto industry bailout, the AIG bailout, or President Obamas failed $787 billion Recovery Act. The list goes on and on. Fed Up! page 5
"After the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008, of which the Troubled Asset Relief Program(TARP) was a part of, failed to pass in the House in its first vote, Rick Perry teamed up with Joe Manchin, who was then the head of the Democratic Governors Assocation. Perry and Manchin wrote and sent a letter to Pelosi, Boehner, Reid, and McConnell on October 1st, 2008 urging them to come together and pass the $800 billion bailout, which ended up costing trillions.
The letter, which you can take a look at yourself (View PDF), stated,
'As leaders of our respective organizations, we dont always see eye to eye on policy, but we come together today with one clear purpose. We strongly urge Congress to leave partisanship at the door and pass an economic recovery package. We both believe that its time to stand together for our country.'"
In case you don't know it, "cut, cap and balance" would have raised the debt ceiling by $2.4 TRILLION dollars.
So, it's your choice. You can believe his current campaign rhetoric, or you can believe the facts. But you can't honestly do both.
Rick Perry is a fraud.
None of the candidates, not even Palin, are advocating that. The problem is more complex than that.
Excellent article. Thank you
Which candidate is your political party pushing again? Do they have a snowball’s chance in Hades of winning?
“Their guy” is Huntsman.
Did you bother to read the article you just posted on cut/cap/trade from Politico?
Weak on illegals...NOT...
Perry stopped short of endorsing any particular approach to the U.S. financial meltdown and warned against any measures that would allow shady business practices to continue.
“We’re sick and tired of watching Washington bicker with each other while financial markets are roiled,” he said. “The other side of that is we’re certainly not interested in Washington bailing out a bunch of irresponsible mortgage brokers in an industry that has too often been run on greed.”
Perry slams Washington for bailout failure

On September 1, 2008 Governor Perry co-wrote a letter to leaders of Congress urging them to act. The letter provided no specifics on the action to be taken. However, that TARP legislation had recently failed to pass Congress and was the only legislation being considered in Congress. The legislation that created the TARP program passed Congress on the day that the letter was written. A year later, Governor Perry stated that this letter was an attempt to spur action other than the TARP legislation.
When more bailouts were discussed after the TARP program, Governor Perry co-wrote another letter in opposition to all bailouts. He stated that the federal government was not only burying future generations under mountains of debt, but also taking our country in a very dangerous direction.
That darkness is again knocking me in the head!!!
The more I read about Perry the more I like him...
I don’t mind, I welcome people to look at my posting history.
No. I don’t care what Politico says.
But, I do know what CCB contained, a $2.4 TRILLION dollar increase in the debt ceiling, and that Rick Perry supported it.
The poster asked for information, and I gave it.
So, did YOU support TARP and raising the debt ceiling $2.4 TRILLION dollars, like Rick Perry?
Or, are you just willing to give him a pass on those things, just like you are on everything else?
He has ALL the right enemies.
Anyone who believes that nonsensical spin out of the Perry camp is dangerously naive.
