I agree. . . . . .
What makes it “important”?
Looked again at Perry, saw a corny capitalist pro-illegal, pro-big-government rino.
Say it ain’t so, Joe. Perry is not for the country. He is big time global.

Apparently he endorsed Romney last time so Joe likes to endorse liberals. Nothing new here.
Endorsements are worthless.
Perry can’t talk and he can’t debate. DONE
Well, I like Joe Arpaio, his independent nature and his ability to drive the Left nuts. But, nationally, I don't think his endorsement of Perry will move voters one way or the other. I'm a Texan and voted for Perry all three times - mainly because even a bad Republican is better than any Democrat. Also, in Texas the real power brokers are the Lt. Governor and the Railroad Commissioner and not the governor. So, Perry's tenure as Governor here was a Do No Harm endeavor.
It looks like age is taking his toll on Joe...
What a bummer.
Problem is conservatives, unlike liberals, are not influenced too much by what others do...
Before or after his posse issues their report on Obama?
Provide evidence Perry is a crony capitalist, is pro-illegal and pro-big government. I am sure Freeper making such charges will be anxious to provide the solid evidence to back up such claims.
And your evidence is.............?
Big Pharma,etc. “Heartless, etc” Dream Act, NAFTA, etc.
Realizing it’s still early in the process, but I believe this endorsement is powerfully symbolic and will serve to bring Gov Perry back to the center stage. Cain, Gingrich and Perry in the top 3? I can live with those choices. I have no idea who will actually get the Nomination at this point....What say you?
Exactly. Endorsements are only important to people who are already supporters.
Any rational person will have to acknowledge all of our candidates have their flaws, no one is perfect. The positive about Perry is that he has tried to stem the flow of illegals and the fed refuse to do their job. Perry has a very good record.
The "big pharma" charge is ridiculous if you're basing the whole charge on the $5000 contribution from Merck. This is peanuts and we can probably find related charges against all of the others. This too, is a non issue. NAFTA? Then we're going to have to examine all the other's positions on NAFTA. Dream Act? Perry's example of Dream Act is different from the national Dream act.
Living in TX observing him for some time.
