Steve Forbes leaning towards supporting Rick Perry
Fox ^ | Oct 19, 2011

Posted on 10/19/2011 10:13:58 PM PDT by Clairity

Steve Forbes was in Boston and spoke about the 2012 Presidential race and why he's leaning towards supporting Rick Perry.

"I'm obviously leaning towards Governor Perry. I talked to his people about the flat tax and I think that's the way to go," says Steve Forbes.

"I think with the formal unveiling next week he'll truly be a frontrunner again and will be dominating the debate."

Forbes promoted a flat tax plan when he ran for president in 1996 and 2000. He favors a simplified tax plan and starting over again on healthcare.

Breaking news! I can’t wait to see what OTHER semi-irrelevant personalities will try to get their name in the news and pretend to be significant by announcing who they’re supporting!

You consider Forbes a “semi-irrelevant personality”?

You are only demonstrating your own incredible ignorance.

He talked to Perry’s people? Shouldn’t Perry have had a tax reformation plan prior to running? Instead of trying to head off 999 or his poor debating. Are we really supposed to take him seriously? The guy’s a puppet. Palin come back. We need you!

Palin isn’t coming back, but Obama is, if people keep pining away for Palin, instead of backing the only candidate who can stop Romney and Obama.

Cain is a flash in the pan, who may hang in there long enough, to help Romney get the nomination and his so-called supporters are trashing Perry, doing Romney’s and Obama’s job for them.

The idea of Perry debating Obama one on one is very scary. Obama will eat him alive in debates. But if came down to choosing between Perry & Romney, I would go with Perry.

“Shouldn’t Perry have had a tax reformation plan prior to running?”

He had one. Whatever his handlers told him to back. That’s what you do when you’re working for the globocrats—what you’re told. This is also why Forbes and Gramm are going to come trotting out in support of a plan that isn’t all that far off of Cain’s plan, when they remained silent about Cain’s ideas. They’re all on the same team.

Never mind that a flat tax won’t happen. We’d need a constitutional amendment to make that stick and get Congress to stop tinkering with it.

They’ve made their money and have their protected enclaves. I don’t covet their accomplishments or money. I’m just tired of the world I live in becoming a war zone of crime and poverty and desperation. Events have moved rapidly lately and they need to match that speed or be held accountable. No one made them accept their positions.

There’s a shock.

Mr. Forbes, who ran in 1996 and 2000 and now is advising the Perry camp, said that the “concept remains the same” as his own flat tax plan from the 1990s.

Can’t imagine why Forbes would want to support the person that is reviving his own tax plan from 1996.

The 3%ers just don't get it.

Fully 69% of Americans in the latest IBD/TIPP poll say they don’t favor states giving in-state college tuition to illegal residents while charging higher fees for legal, out-of-state residents. Just 22% support such a policy. 73% of Republicans are opposed vs. 20% in favor.

Independents have even stronger views: 74%-15%. Even Democrats are strongly opposed 58%-32%.

In fact, a majority of every major subgroup opposes giving illegals in-state tuition rates — men and women, rich and poor, urban and rural. Hispanics, who have more conflicted views over illegal immigration than is commonly known, are opposed, 54%-28%. Blacks, who often see illegal immigrants as rivals for jobs, are the most opposed, 80%-12%.

This is just a way to indoctrinate us to a no border mentality. This country has always been dominated by a anglo-judeo-christian culture. The failures of that tenet has always been the primary tool used against it’s existence. The end of that is the end-game.

Just in case we forgot. Wait... didn’t Perry endorse Giuliani also?

Not an endorsement... Rush Limbaugh had Elton John at his wedding, but hardly endorsed his lifestyle, though that act was more of an approval than visiting another politician.

I see you're astroturfing tonight.

You have no perspective. None. Zero.

You refuse to learn from history, refuse to learn from the California experience. By your reckoning, as you plead meaningless polling data, CA would not have turned into a one party state in the mid-90s. And yet that history is written.

You will slam on the accelerator while this nation drives off a cliff and do it in the name of purity and false piety.

I strongly opposed in-state tuition here in CA but I can still put things into context.

A decade old Texas program isn't a speck on a pimple in the grand scheme of things. The problem is Washington's twenty years of failure to secure the border or figure out what to do with the millions allowed to become squatters.

Moreover, on this issue, I am in agreement with the owner of this forum. Does JR have no perspective also?

I do not believe that La Raza Rick Perry, who is pro-ILLEGAL alien, should be the POTUS. If that, in your mind, means I have "no perspective", then I will happily take my place in the group of those with "no perspective" while you and your pro-ILLEGAL alien minority watch as your pro-ILLEGAL alien hero gets kicked to the curb where he belongs.

I was a flat tax fan in '96 and '00. I recall Perry was already a Flat or FairTax guy before running so this shouldn't surprise anyone (except the trolls).

I don't see how Perry will sell it. It'll be demonized as a tax break for the 1% blah, blah.

The Flat Tax has the benefit (or liability?) of not being a brand new proposal, unlike 999, and not having the added sales tax component which has too many in an uproar.

On the downside, it won't have the sales tax so there's no capturing underground economy money. That part of 999 is appealing.

We'll see what Perry's version of a Flat Tax does on the low end and with deductions and whether this is income tax only reform or if it's deeper.

It's all academic though, Obama will win reelection.

I can't comment on that. But I do know your defense of ILLEGAL aliens sure is.

You don't scare me.

You really aren't very perceptive. I wasn't trying to scare you. My post proved wrong your wild-eyed assertion that I am astroturfing when in fact I am in the majority. It is you who are astroturfing, but that's what you 3%ers do. You must, because, like La Raza Rick you enjoy an incredibly scant amount of support.

Astroturf away, put your head in the sand, push other freepers around. It won't change what happened to the CA-GOP and when it happens nationally, remember your part in it.

When we take America back from the likes of liberals and other pro-ILLEGAL alien moonbats I will gladly take my share of the credit, small as it may be. And do you really feel pushed around? You really are weak.

I couldn't help but notice that you completely ignored the facts contained in my last post, be it the fact that you are in a small minority with your defense of ILLEGAL invaders and the fact that your views conflict with that of the owner of this forum. Why is that? I asked you a question last post; does JR 'lack perspective' also? After all, he does not agree with you or liberals across America that we should be giving taxpayer funded subsidies to ILLEGAL aliens. Don't be a coward, answer the question.

You can continue your weak attacks on me; it doesn't bother me any more than it would if it were coming from the average liberal -- which it could. But you are attacking me for sharing the same opinion of the owner of this forum. Say what you will about me, but I would advise you to not attack the concept because it is his as well.

Have a nice night.

Obama without a teleprompter.

I’m better on immigration?
Perry put more money and manpower on the border than Obama did.

I’m better because I’m stronger on the 10th Amendment?
NOT— Perry is a huge supporter of the 10th Amendment.

I’m better because I’m stronger on the 2nd Amendment?
Nobody and I mean nobody is a stronger supporter of the right to own guns than Perry. Nobody.
All Perry has to say is: You support running guns to the Mexican drug cartels on the border but not for American Citizens right to bear arms.

I have tort reform legislation? NOT - Perry Did

I’m better because you don’t have experience?
Perry has over a decade of governing experience.

I’m better because I lowered regulations? NOT- Perry did.

In fact Perry and the state of Texas sued EPA.

I’m better because I’m a conservative? NOT - Perry is.

I’m better because I served in our military? NOT
Perry served in the military as a C-130 pilot in the United States Air Force.

I’m better because I uh uh um uh uh um uh can work with foreign leaders?

NOT - AND YOU WON’T SEE PERRY BOWING TO ANY FOREIGN LEADERS.

YOU WILL NOT SEE PERRY APOLOGIZING FOR AMERICA EITHER!
