“Delusional. She is going to slam crony capitalists (ie-Rick Perry and friends) in her Indianola speech and then turn around and endorse him?!”

She endorsed him for Governor. Was he NOT a crony capitalist then?

And Perry endorsed Al Gore for President. What does that make him?

“She endorsed him for Governor. Was he NOT a crony capitalist then”

Sure. He was the lesser of three evils. I do not know if she knew his complete history or not. Because she endorsed him does not mean she endorsed everything he did. Nor does it mean she would endorse him for another office or against different opposition.

Endorsing someone for dog catcher does not mean you endorse them for the Supreme Court. This is not higher math or quantum mechanics. I can explain it to you, but I can’t make you understand it.

The "Crony Capitalism = Perry" agitprop has been picked up and repeated by left-wing media outlet after left-wing media outlet. The Washington Post article on Palin used by Drudge today ends:

The “crony capitalism” was described as a veiled attack against Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who has been criticized for handing out favors to political supporters.

However, as explained in the first comment of a thread I posted yesterday, "Crony Capitalism" has been a long-standing Sarah Palin theme that has absolutely nothing to do with Rick Perry. (Below)

===========================

Crony capitalism: Perry’s Achilles heel? (Media agitprop distorting Sarah’s long-term position)

Once hints about Sarah Palin’s speech on September 3 began to leak out, it seems that the Left-wing media has latched on to a new line of attack against the GOP front-runner: The media claims that Sarah Palin is specifically targeting Rick Perry by the use of the phrase “Crony Capitalism”. This line of attack is now being picked up by other left-wing media including CNN.

Palin will up the ante but not announce run in Iowa speech ….. Palin plans to unleash a furious criticism of "crony capitalism" and attack the "permanent political class" in both parties: thinly veiled criticisms of Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who has surged to the top of most polls for the Republican presidential nomination

The truth is that “Crony Capitalism”, where the Federal Government in general and the Democrats in particular pick winners and losers by interfering with the marketplace and “decide which firms to rescue or close, and which creditors to reward and how” has been a long-standing Sarah Palin theme.

What Sarah Palin means by “Crony Capitalism” is explained by Sarah Palin herself in this article written by Sarah a year and a half ago, back in April, 2010, before Rick Perry was even reelected Governor of Texas and before Perry was even on the Presidential radar screen.

Institutionalizing Crony Capitalism, by Sarah Palin on Thursday, April 22, 2010 at 7:28pm

What was Sarah Palin doing in February, 2010, two months before she wrote her “Crony Capitalism” article?

Sarah was endorsing Rick Perry for reelection at a joint Houston rally.

08 February 2010 .... Palin brings out crowd for Perry rally near Houston

Be aware of what the left-wing media agitprop is trying to accomplish here.
