Skip to comments.Perry’s system of patronage and cronyism
Posted on 09/21/2011 3:14:29 PM PDT by Nachum
Mitt Romney may not be Texas Gov. Rick Perrys biggest problem. The nonprofit group Texans for Public Justice, a good-government foundation that has been keeping tabs on him for years, may claim that title. Its Web sites homepage features a quote from its Crony Capitalism report: As Texas Governor Rick Perrys influence at the RGA increased over the past five years the political finances of both the governor and the Governors Association skyrocketed. The RGA raised a record $216.9 million during the Perry years between January 2006 and June 30, 2011.

Plus it is so FAST AND FURIOUS
Rubin is a Mittens sycophant. She has the gall to call out Perry while she supports the biggest Progressive, pro Abortion, socialized medicine loving, Man-made Global Warning believer running. Stuff it Compost. You are an irrelevant Commie rag and your writers are hacks.
Go the link, it’s an article you’ll appreciate.
Fast and Furious?
I need a BEER SUMMIT to think about it.
Let the games begin.
Enter Sarah, let Mittens, Perry and Palin fight it out.
“The RGA raised a record $216.9 million during the Perry years “
Barack Obama raises a billion and he’s a Godsend.
Nary a peep about the unions, trial lawyers, green energy suckups, liberal interest groups, all pushing thier agendas.
Perry raises $200 million and he’s the worst politician ever.
“Rubin is a Mittens sycophant.”
Yes, we are noticing. Romney supporters in the elites have been the most negative on Perry. This stuff is just enabling the Obama narrative. This is about making Perry ‘unelectable’ so we have to ‘settle’ for Romney.
or maybe the post is just ACTING STUPIDLY
The Republican Party is ramping up a campaign against President Obama based on accusations that companies like LightSquared and Solyndra represent an epidemic of favoritism and misuse of the taxpayers money. They argue that as government expands, the opportunities for legalized bribery increase, and those same beneficiaries then become advocates for an ever-growing government. How is Perry supposed to talk about that during the campaign, should he get the nomination? Moreover, does his style of governance represent the Tea Party ethos or the worst of old-style government? Perry better have good answers to these or hell find himself the target of the bases wrath, not its affection.
Jennifer Rubin and Michelle Malkin have something in common. They’re both working to undermine the Perry campaign.
Rubin with her columns and Malkin on the Sean Hannity Show’s. Romney couldn’t ask for two better supporters.
“I created 40% of all jobs in America since Zero became President, I’ll get America back to work too”
Texas has crucial EVs for 2012
Actually I’m more amused by the desperate attacks on the messenger but nothing that proves the message to be false. And I thought only liberals behaved this way but it seems to be a common theme among perry supporters.
You are right about the PK's, they never try to counter his problems or issues with facts or debate, they just attack anyone who brings them up.
Call me crazy but I think moral voters are important to rebuilding America.

Who is really leveling cronyism charges at Perry?
By Marc Thiessen
That’s not so crazy, it’s a foundational principle. Reagan understood that better than any president in our lifetime.
Can you imagine the screeching that would ensue if an AIG chief executive (Hank Greenberg) were to host a fundraiser for Obama?
In Perry’s case I hear nothing but crickets.
