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.

Sure, if you exclude Bachmann, Gingrich, Santorum, and Paul who were all charged by the US Constitution to protect the border (Perry is not but is forced to do it anyway) and have done nothing, except for Newt who gave them amnesty.

By the way, it's really dumb to say you're not going to comment on Perry and then throw a racial slur as a comment.

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.

Just so you feel better about it, Perry did support SB1070.

Statement by Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Attorney General’s Amicus Brief in U.S. v. State of Arizona Case

Wednesday, July 14, 2010 • Austin, Texas • Press Release

Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement regarding Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott’s amicus brief in the U.S. v. State of Arizona case:

“All Americans should support today’s actions by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott and other state attorneys general in their efforts to uphold the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and the right of states to provide for the public safety and security of their citizens.

“The federal government has failed to secure our borders as drug activity and murder rates soar in many border communities. States are left with no choice. Until the federal government secures the border, I expect more states to legislate in an effort to protect their citizens.

“Regardless of anyone’s feelings on the Arizona law, we must protect the 10th Amendment and right of states to legislate public safety to keep families and communities secure. I join Texas Attorney General Abbott in opposing the Obama Administration’s effort to undermine the right of states to protect their citizens and govern themselves.”

Sheriff Arpaio: ‘So what?’ on Perry expanding Texas in-state tuition

“So what, even if there is that little problem, why should we not recognize what he’s done at the border?” Arpaio said in a joint appearance with Perry on conservative Sean Hannity’s radio show. “You have to have an ID when you go to vote [in Texas], why don’t people talk about that?”

My post argued that these people have not RUN a border state; nothing about simply being Constitutionally bound to do so. Quite a few people around the country are obligated to uphold the Constitution, no?

Has MB, NG, RS, and RP ever governed a state on the southern border? Not to my knowledge. Ron Paul is a Congressional Rep from Texas - close but not the same as being Governor. But at any rate I was really referring to Cain, Gingrich, and Romney.

And by the way, it's really dumb to take out of context the meaning of ‘Ricardo Perry’, given the subject matter here. Maybe you need to shore up your critical thinking skills.

That was a nice try, however, but I'm not intimidated by you trying to play the race card. Why don't you try DU?

I don’t understand it, either, but I don’t come to FR much anymore because of it. And if Sarah Palin supports him? You know the answer. The nasties in FR will declare HER a RINO.

The fire breaters were palin supporters before they jumped on the cainiac scream train. They only have one hyper emotional setting and it does not tire their brains.

In 2002, Arpaio endorsed Democratic gubernatorial nominee Janet Napolitano.

So, support the other “Rick” — Santorum, who has an even harder task ahead. Less baggage too

Oh, goodness, I have been telling everyone Santorum has less baggage. Maybe he could get Ken Osmond to endorse him then.
