79 year old Arpaio makes a fool of himself.

Not a Perry fan (hi CW!) but this is the first endorsement of the season that’s actually giving me something to think about.

***...and no candidate for president has done more to secure the border than Governor Rick Perry.***

Without commenting on Ricardo, what other candidate for POTUS has run a border state?

It’s like saying the NY Giants score more touchdowns than the NY Yankees. True, but the Yankees don’t play football.

Bears Repeating...

The federal government has failed on border crime and border enforcement, and no candidate for president has done more to secure the border than Governor Rick Perry. I have been watching Governor Perry and Texas closely and know his border surge operations with state, local and federal law enforcement officials have helped shut down the illegal trafficking of weapons, drugs and people," said Sheriff Arpaio. "I'm endorsing Rick Perry because we need a tough-on-crime president who will champion and fund full-time border security operations from Brownsville to San Diego. Governor Perry has a superior border security record and plan to make our border and our nation safer."

PERRY 2012

Very interesting.

Sheriff Joe supported SB 1070. Rick Perry opposed it. I supported SB 1070 as well. But even though me and the Sheriff disagree with Perry over this, I still see more commonalities that we can agree on.

Rick Perry for President.

Sheriff Joe is a great sheriff, but has a history of boneheaded endorsements - including Janet Napolitano for AZ Governor, and Mittens for President in 2008, and some even worse ones at the local level.

Declared legislation outlawing "sanctuary cities" an emergency item in Texas, and added it to the call of the special session;

And then dropped it like a hot potato when his big money backers (incl. Bob Perry of Perry Homes, which uses thousands of illegals) said to kill it.

Also known as "America's Toughest Sheriff," Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been elected five times as Maricopa County Sheriff in Arizona,

Joe only won with 55% last time around, and is now a target of Randy Parraz, who took down Russell Pearce. This will NOT help him in his 2012 bid.

Perry did not. The legislators didn’t pass it in the special session. They are the ones that dropped it like a hot potato. Let’s get the facts straight...I mean when did Perry become King of Texs?

Get over it. He has endorsed Perry proving Perry’s immigration stance. Sheriff Arpaio’s endorsement has been sought after by most of the Republican candidates. He endorsed Perry cause he knows how Perry is over illegals and approves of him. However, it isn’t surprising you are trying to say it isn’t important.

I agree. Unless you’ve walked the walk, button up!

That philosophy may not be valid in all cases, but for the most part I think it is. Just my opinion.

Don't understand the absolute HATRED of Perry by so many here. I noticed on Perry threads they are the first to show up and spew personal attacks. On threads about their candidate, they spew their hatred of Perry. On threads about any other candidates, they spew hatred of Perry. And all the while claiming Perry supporters are hateful.

Wonder what will happen if Palin supports Perry or becomes his running mate?

This might be important but this is the only place where I see a news report on it. I don’t think this is actually as big as some here thing. The regular American people probably could care less. Will Republicans really care? i don’t know. This guy has not been able to increase his support after doing many many things so who knows.

Don't lecture me. I was deeply involved with lobbying on both the Voter ID bill and Burt Solomon's sanctuary cities ban. Perry gets props for scheduling the session, but as soon as his backers Bob Perry and Charles Butt (of H-E-B) came out against it, Perry did not say another word about it, and the bill died.

Perry supported AZ’s right to pass the legislation but said that there were some things in that bill that were not right for Texas. From what I’ve read his main beef with the law as written was that it opened up the local law enforcement officers up for civil lawsuits.

Actually, there are still a few sane FReepers that have moved to Perry because of the poor character they now see in Cain. They are also not blind to the fact, Newt has never been a conservative. There still remains FReepers with brains who have a thinking process. They do not blinding worship individuals who they support.

No, you’re wrong. The liberal, Soros-funded, Texas Tribune said that Perry “twisted arms” in the Senate to get the Bill passed. Also, it went down to the last minute in the 120 day Regular Session and then the Governor added it to the call for the 30 day Special Session.

The Governor hosted the wife of a slain Houston police officer, and made several attempts to pressure the Speaker to move the Bill in the House.

At the last minute in the Special Session, some other, very Conservative leaders like Steve Hotze and Norm Adams came out against the Bill for reasons of their own.

http://www.texastribune.org/texas-legislature/82nd-legislative-session/sanctuary-cities-causes-rift-within-texas-gop/

Here’s the June 24 letter from “Norman Adams, the co-founder of Texans for Sensible Immigration Policy and a member of Texas GOP Vote, a conservative website, and Dr. Steve Hotze, the chairman of Conservative Republicans of Texas” concerning the Bill:

I am currently without a candidate since Cain imploded, I will have to mull this over, but if Perry actually showed some life in the polls.... I think I would prefer him over Newt.

Then they will hate Palin. There have been trolls here since this sites first days, like all other sites. Perry is Pro gun, Pro life, A Christian, Has a workable solution to the immigration problem. And no accusations of sexual trysts in his past. You can figure out the sort of people who hate the guy, right?

“Sheriff Joe Arpaio Endorses Governor Rick Perry for President”

Joe is pretty tough on illegals. That he would back Perry means a lot. I still prefer Cain but Perry could be moving into my backup spot.

Joe doesn’t do anything he doesn’t want to do. I amazed at the arrogance if some Freepers who think nobody else is allowed to have a differing opinion and if you do, you’re a sell out.

Perry has been a Governor of a border State and knows the issues. Apparently, Arpaio believes he’s done a good job of it.

Joe can pick whoever he chooses..I'm not him. Of course, there is not much of a choice again for the Republicans.

I personally wouldn't vote for Perry if ya took me to the polls in a complimentary fully stocked stretch limo. He's just another Republican fraud, who after almost 11 years of a massive invasion into Texas, he's suddenly tough illegal immigration. Seen this all before with Bush.

No sale here, but feel free to pull out your own money.
