Slippery slope for ‘slick’ Rick
Boston Herald ^ | 9/25/11 | Howie Carr

Posted on 09/24/2011 9:51:38 PM PDT by raccoonradio

I never thought Rick Perry was going to be the next Ronald Reagan. But who knew he’d turn out to be the next Mumbles Menino?

At least the governor of Texas picked the right place to turn into a pumpkin — Orlando, home of Disney World.

That GOP debate Thursday night was a political NASCAR race. All the fans got what they came for — a massive crack-up on the far turn. Remember two weeks ago when everyone said Rick Perry was ready for prime time. It turned out to be a “monstrous lie,” to coin a phrase.

Here is Gov. Perry, unleashing his roundhouse on Mitt Romney: “I think Americans just don’t know sometimes which Mitt Romney they’re dealing with. Is it the Mitt Romney that was on the side of against the Second Amendment before he was for the Second Amendment?”

Did I say Mumbles Menino? This is sounding like Ted Kennedy after a long car ride.

“Was was it before he was before the social programs, um, from the standpoint of he was for, uh, standing for Roe versus Wade before he was against vers — Roe versus Wade?”

Perry went to Texas A&M. Fill in your own Aggie joke here.

“Uh, who, uh, he was for Race to the Top, uh, he’s for Obamacare and now he’s against it.”

The next morning Perry was reduced to telling an audience, “It’s not who’s the slickest candidate or the smoothest debater.” Or, as Mumbles puts it, “I’m not a fancy talker.”

Perry has a glass jaw. How about when Rick Santorum was hectoring him about whether Texas was succeeding in keeping illegal aliens out? Perry stumbled, swallowed, and finally said the Lone Star State was “putting the aviation assets on the ground.”

That does a lot of good, I’m sure.

Who would have thought that Gov. Aggie would have more problems with immigration that Mitt is having with Romneycare? The difference is, Obomneycare, as Tim Pawlenty used to call it, doesn’t really start destroying health care until 2013. An illegal alien could kill you today — a clear and present danger.

So when Perry haughtily said that anyone who opposes granting in-state (read: free) tuition to illegal aliens “doesn’t have a heart” — well, I think we have a problem, Houston.

What is it with these Democrats-turned-Republicans from Texas? They all seem to have such fine pedigrees. John Connolly in 1980, spending $13 million to win one delegate. Phil Gramm, another total washout, in 1996. And now Perry, the governor with a heart — for illegal aliens.

Too bad for us here at the Herald? How many front pages and exclusives did we waste on this guy? “Deep in the Heart of Taxes” — that was a great headline. And now it’s all for naught.

Aww, Perry’s just getting misconscrewed, and misunderestimated. Pretty much anybody could tell what he was trying to say. We need bigger issues than this.

Mumbles Menino? LOLOLOLOLOL

He has that line coming but, sometimes you program your head wrong, like focusing on not flubbing your lines and then guess what? Yuh flub yer lines.

Happened to me the other day and I was pretty dang’d mad about it too. 5 frickin lines! I’ve memorized speeches that are several hundred lines and never flubbed them.

I was focuses on not messing up and made that the priority. I still messed up and it won’t happen next time.

I’ll bet he focuses on delivering lines crisply, being creative in ridicule and wowing his audience like he knows he can and they’ll love his next performance.

You guys can flame Rick, but I would like to keep him as Governor of TX.

He has taken some real bone headed positions before, but he has a lot of things right.

Is he a phoney? Like most POLs he is on some issues.

Does he speak his mind directly(at times not polished)? Yes, Texans are noted for that. hee hee hee

Would he make a good President? not sure.

In spite of all, he has been a pretty good governor.

Maybe he was overprogrammed by his handlers and they focused on him getting some good lines out—and he goes to say one thing then launches into another.

A very good example is when a now-deceased Senator from Mass.
was asked what he thought about a rising Senator from Illinois whose name sounded like that of a terrorist:

“There you go. Why don’t we ask Osama bin La- er, Osama
Obama. Obama. Because, er, because er he won by er such
a large amount.”

Then again we can blame wetbrain for that one.

Boston Mayor Tom “Mumbles” Menino gets in trouble because sometimes he skips over words and he has a tongue too big for his mouth.

On Friday, Rick Perry was saying "It's not who's the smoothest debater"

On Sunday, Rick Perry will be saying "It's not who wins the Florida straw poll."

In a few more months, Rick Perry will be saying "It's not who wins the Iowa Caucus."

And I thought Mitt Romney was a laughingstock. Rick Perry is to Mitt Romney what Barack Obama is to Jimmy Carter.

Carr isn’t on my radar screen.

Did a quick search and found that...is this true, honestly and no dumb dumb spin, please...did he accuse Deval Patrick of giving illegal aliens free tuition?

Apparently, if what I read was correct, he equated in state tuition rates with paying no tuition at all for college, actually using the words “free tuition” for illegal aliens.

Hey, I’m no fan of OJ’s expert witness, as he helped a guilty as sin murderer get off, but as the guy said, “something wrong here”.

Reminds me a lot of what’s wrong on Free Republic on discussion threads about candidates. The language chosen can be appallingly distorted and deliberately, delusionally incendiary.

If this is true of Mr. Carr, I don’t accept the source of this “clever” diatribe. Of course it’s his opinion and he has a free speech right, but people who live in such a glass house as this should really not be throwing stones.

Actually, it's destroying wealth right now, because there is less than 100% certainty it will be deep-sixed in 2013. But that wealth-destroying effect also increases the probability of a GOP win in 2012 and Obamacare destruction in 2013.

I live 15 miles from Rick’s parents and know both of them.

For all his failings he is a Texan and carries the imprint.

I probably know more about his failings than most of FR, but have never met Rick in person. He is a few years younger than I am, and I lived away from this county for 25 years.

Don’t believe everything about him presented in the MSM. Remember what they did to Sarah Palin.

Thanks for the insight into Perry's personal life but it has no bearing on my opinion of him nor does what the MSM says. I have read many things about Perry and have researched and confirmed them through Texas government websites and other sources.

One of my biggest critiques of Perry is due to his liberal policies regarding ILLEGAL immigration. One need not listen to the MSM to know what I've heard is truth as he confirmed it himself during the debates.

I am a conservative. Perry is not.

Thanks again.

It actually isn’t the smoothest debater.

It actually isn’t who wins the FL straw poll.

Who do you think will win the Iowa Caucus? It won’t be Michele Bachmann, who won the Iowa Straw Poll but has destroyed her credibility by going over the cliff in her anti Perry zeal. I don’t know who it will be, but if Perry’s still in the race, whether he wins it or not I won’t be unhappy, as long as it is either Perry, Herman Cain or Sarah Palin - if she runs, of course.

Or, if someone wins I can’t support, that the Iowa Caucus turns out not to be determinative of who wins the nomination.

Most of the time, it has not been determinative.

Again, I understand your skepticism. But it is TIME to DownSize DC! We need a President who “will” pull that trigger. Rick did for the state of Texas. Would he do it in DC? I am not sure.

In my opinion, there is no other solution to our mess than to gut and field dress the Washington bureaucracy.

I appreciate and respect your opinion but I have to disagree. Given his record of pandering to ILLEGAL aliens I believe Perry would be a terrible president.

If amnesty is given to the hordes of ILLEGALS in America they will become voters. And if they become voters they will likely vote democrat. And if they vote democrat the Republicans will likely never again win a national election.

A president Rick Perry would not be good for America.

Howie on illegals receiving in-state tuition:

http://audio.wrko.com/a/42999711/should-illegal-aliens-receive-in-state-tuition.htm

Basically, he argues in-state tuition for illegals adds up to free tuition, since illegals qualify for full scholarships, having no income (as far as the state knows).

Governor Coupe Deval, David Axelrod's other client (Together we can!), favors offering illegals in-state tuition.

During the fall semester, 12,138 students - about 1 percent of all Texas college students - benefited from the state law granting in-state tuition, according to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. Most of the immigrants among those students are illegal, and some others are not legal permanent residents or U.S. citizens.

Texas awarded about $33.6 million in state and institutional financial aid to those students between fall 2004 and summer 2008.

Mark Levin, on his show 9/23/11, regarding Rick Perry and in-state tuition for the children of illegals:

"They [the children of illegals] are being educated, right up to and through high school.

Where did it come to pass that if you're here illegally, you have a right to a college education, let alone the right to have it subsidized, when all Americans do NOT have their college educations subsidized?

I mean, this is perverse, to be honest with you.

And it is also the position of the Bush family. And I think…if I'm wrong, I stand corrected…it's the position of some of our "inside-the-beltway" publications.

But it is not the position of the American people, who have to pay this bill, endlessly."

Less than 5 months ago, I heard Rick interviewed by Mark Davis on WBAP in Ft. Worth. Mark asked him directly if he would run for President and Rick responded that he was not interested in running for President because he had the best job in the world, governor of the state of Texas.

He was asked several times in several ways by Mark Davis and in each case he said flatly NO..

About 3 months ago I talked with one of Rick’s closest friends (from childhood) and asked him the same question. Is Rick going to run for President? I reminded him of the WBAP interview. He told me then that Rick would only run for president if he was asked to run by the National Republican “leadership”. I am convinced that in fact happened. Even the current Republican “leadership” understands what is at stake. A Romney nomination will be the end of the Party. It would go away like the Whiggs.

We are at a critical point in the nations history. It is imperative that we destroy the Leftist threat to the nation. That cannot be done without shrinking the Federal Government to a point it is almost unrecognisable. By closing entire Departments and moving those functions back to the state is the only solution. Anything less leaves the Leftists in place in DC even if we win all the elected positions. If we close the departments and they will go too.

It is TIME to DownSize DC! There is no other option to stop this insanity.

Whoever can accomplish this, must be elected and supported.

Carr list ping

Same old song on new Americans
By Howie Carr | Wednesday, September 28, 2011 | http://www.bostonherald.com | Columnists
Photo
Photo by John Wilcox

Must be nice to have two mansions, state police drivers and millions in the bank from the corporations you walked away from. It must be easy for Gov. Deval Patrick to ignore the carnage that the illegal aliens he supports so fervently are unleashing on the commonwealth.

Another day, another person killed in Massachusetts by an illegal alien.

But Deval Patrick remains cool. Nothing to see here, folks, move along.

“It’s horrible,” he said of the latest murder, in Marshfield of all places, allegedly by a Brazilian using a visa number issued to a Kuwaiti woman. “But it’s horrible on its own.”

What’s horrible is that this Third World freeloader didn’t have to be here. He could have been thrown out of this country months ago. But Deval wouldn’t hear of it.

“I think we need to be careful,” Deval was saying yesterday, “not to paint (with) too broad a brush.”

Deval was instructing his coat-holders in the media, try not to mention that he’s an illegal alien, or at least bury it in the 10th paragraph. Don’t list the illegals’ toll — the dreadful murders in Brockton; or the dead motorcyclist in Milford; or the six-time drunken driver, deported three times, arrested over the weekend in Boxboro; or Uncle Omar’s court appearance tomorrow.

And if you must mention that the suspected stabber is a ... new American, then by all means do what the Globe so often does on its Web site. Don’t allow any of the readers to comment on any story where somebody gets killed by an . . . undocumented worker. You know, these posters have no respect for our wonderful governor. Just last week, when he got caught driving during don’t-drive week, some blue-collar wretch scribbled on a message board, “He was probably just driving an illegal to the welfare office.”

And pay no attention to all these bills that are being introduced on Beacon Hill to try to stop the guest workers’ reign of terror.

“I’m not interested in legislation that’s just about a headline,” Deval explained, with some exasperation.

Headlines, Governor? The one I saw yesterday said, “Suspect likely here illegally.” It’s what you might call a standing headline, whether it’s cocaine dealing or drive-bys or hit-and-run driving.

Secure Communities? Just a publicity stunt, Deval scoffed.

I know, they’re only committing the crimes Americans don’t want to commit. I’m sure this Brazilian was planning to marry his “fiancee,” just before he stabbed her to death. He was turning his life around.

Don’t bother these Democrats with any of the messy details about what this country is becoming. In Vermont, Gov. Peter Shumlin told his cops last week to “look the other way as much as we can.”

But it gets harder and harder to look the other way, with all the bodies in the road.
