Skip to comments.Perry fires back at pro-Bachmann super PAC
Posted on 09/01/2011 2:12:25 PM PDT by AAABEST
Rick Perry's campaign just responded to the attack ad that a pro-Michele Bachmann super PAC unveiled last night, which it is airing in South Carolina, and which hits him on his spending record as Texas governor:
Gov. Perry is a proven fiscal conservative, having cut taxes, signed six balanced budgets, and led Texas to become Americas top job-creating state, said Ray Sullivan, RickPerry.orgs communications director. Congresswoman Bachmanns front-group ad is patently and provably false. Unlike Washington, the Texas budget is balanced, does not run deficits and limits spending, even as Texas added jobs and population in big numbers.

You're already here!
I have two things to say about this one.
1. Before Michele Bachmann can talk about state budgets, economic growth, and the administrative needs of a large growing state or organization, perhaps she might want some executive experience to understand them first,
2. If she is going to run such deceptive ads, perhaps she shouldn’t even be in a Republican race proclaiming conservative principles. While there is a difference in political conservatism and personal integrity, I would think a candidate who salivates for the position so much that he/she would downright LIE is not a good representative for our party.
Give it up, Michele Bachmann. That is no better than the Dems showing Paul Ryan shoving Grandma off the cliffs!
And... Go find another way to be Mitt Romney’s VP choice. We don’t want you smelling our party up for THAT.
I don’t understand some of the thought processes of people. Do they honestly think that being POTUS is a position where they can wing it with zero experience?
Carville and his wife operated in 2 different political parties.
Not a big deal.
Did you happen to see how many JOBS were created?
I just posted (see post #22) that I think Bachmann will do ANYTHING to be Mitt Romney’s VP choice.
And I’m so upset she has let her salivating for a VP position cause her such a loss of integrity that I’m changing my FR tag! LOL
She’s vulnerable — where is her record of accomplishment — executive results?
It seems obvious Palin, if all she can do is destroy Perry, like you and your guys are trying, she will get crushed.
I have been waiting to hear something good about your candidate as an executive. I guess she's just so "flippin cool" and "fights like a girl/mama grizzly" oh and "womans up" that she just deserves the nomination, oh wait is that the same as "it's her turn"?
Isn’t it flippin cool to have such an extensive record of success as an executive that you can just pick from millions of jobs and still just post innuendo? Flippin awesome, yeah!
Not only "patently and provably false", the adjectives "cheesy", "lame", "schlocky", "amateurish", "piddly", "hokey" work too.
normy, I’m not sure I would tie this in with Sarah Palin in any way. I’m not sure what crazies Tempest wants, but this does not show badly on Sarah Palin OR Rick Perry. This shows a deceptive campaign ad which has Michele Bachmann’s fingerprints all over it. Such disregard for truth shows very badly for Michele Bachmann and Michele Bachmann only.
She's not running for President; she's running for Vice-President. Romney's vice president, to be exact.
Bachmann hasn't laid a finger on Romney yet, nor will she. She can't make it to the White House alone, but neither can some other folks in the race. She's the conservative beard, waiting to apply herself to Romney's smooth, boyish chin.
They're both powerful but fatally flawed candidates on their own. Romney is an experienced former governor, but he lacks right wing street cred. He needs a tough, popular, conservative wingman. Bachmann is a tough, popular conservative but a political lightweight. She needs an experienced governor who lacks right wing street cred. Together, they could team up and win.
They have their jobs to do. Mittens will raise the cash, hide from the base, and look Presidential to the independents. Michelle will throw red meat to the base and keep them fired up, even if it hurts her among independents. Once it's time, they'll snap together like Legos. It really couldn't be more obvious.
Yep, that ad has caused me to demote Bachmann on my list of preferred candidates. Herman Cain moves up as a result.
LOL Steel Wolf!
Look at my post #22 of this thread! I said the same thing as you only, as usual, you said it better! :)
And after reading post 22, take a look at my tag. I did indeed change it!
I will take Micheel anyday. Three words: tough on immigration.
I haven’t seen her shining up to La Raza.
That said, I would just as soon make Victor Hanson the nominee and be done with it.
