Maybe we both are but Perry keeps on ‘keeping on’. He doesn’t give up. We know he has what’s needed to change the course.

Perry ran Gore’s campaign for President in 1988 in Texas.

STOP being a mind-numbed robot and do some reading and STOP perpetuating the lie that Gov Perry ran Gore's campaign:

Thomas Jefferson carried a pistol when he took a walk and he advised us to do the same

He did not have 300 armed Secret Service men guarding him with 16 F16s above as Obama does when he goes abroad - and neither do we

Newt thinks he can talk coyotes, Congress, and Obama to death

Less talk - More self-reliance and more evidence of instant decisive action

Blue-Glasers are a dandy choice of cartridges - deadly - untraceable

Mitt’s delivery was perhaps the most disjointed.

You know, it seems like Romney is losing his cool lately. I don't recall him being so flustered before; nor in 2007-8.

Gingrich understands precisely what this election is all about. The Marxist and his people do too.
The others see pieces of the picture; Newt sees the heart of the matter, the Alinsky-Leninist brood running our government.

It's like Newt watched all those Glenn Beck shows, paid attention, took notes, thought about solutions... and now he's ready to go up against the Alinsky-Leninists in a way that none of the other candidates have even thought about yet.

I doubt much can be done if they’re a citizen...however you can bet their neighbors are watching and in some cases the authorities. They are not to be trusted IMO as their mindset doesn’t work as ours does...they think differently in every way. Further they have no intentions whatsoever of assimulating when they come here.

IMO If they want to be a citizen in our country and they take the oath to our country,...then they can’t continue in the muslim agenda and ideology without living a lie....the two are not compatible in any sense of the word. So if they continue with the Koran and attend their Mosque/Bases they are traitors to our nation. Their whole agenda is the islamification of our nation and it’s people and not a Imam teaches otherwise.

Perry did well but he confused me on his Obamacare answer. Executive order and Sec. HHS rulemaking.
Would he also lead an effort to repeal it?

**************************************************

I think Perry wants to kill parts of it ASAP and by EO, he can do that.

To get rid of it in Congress could take months depending on who gets the majority in the Senate. But I’m sure Perry would work with Congress to repeal ObamaCare as well.

“Gingrich understands precisely what this election is all about.”

I keep wondering through the candidates but I keep coming back to Newt. He seems to have a clear thought process and knowledge on the subject when answering a question and responds in a manner that the average person can understand.

It is easy to understand why Newt is rising in the polls. He also appears to be the only one zeroing in on Zero and sends salvos into the ranks of the msm which they deserve. I don’t know, I just keep coming back to Newt.

Judging by recent polls, both in early primary states and nationally, people are seeing it Gingrich’s way and viewers watching tonight had the chance to see the others too.

Gingrich’s closing statement nailed this election for all to hear and see.

You have to know the Marxist and/or his peeps were watching....LOL.

I know we disagree here... I have done a great deal of research and investigation of Perry on this issue since he began his run.... for it concerns me how our politicians see ‘stealth jihad’ and it’s threat. Perry comes down on the wrong side of that..opposing radical islam is not enough...though since he began his run he attempted to change his verbage...his actions and how he sees them is not healthy for this country and puts us in harms way.

Absolutely and he's [Gingrich] trying very hard to get the people to see it as well...which is another attraction to him...he sooo cares about our nation and knows exactly what has to be done....and every plan he has addresses more than what people read them as...those plans touch every place we need to clean up in our country to get it cooking once again.....
Well said.

Perry — U.S. Air Force Pilot

“In the early 1970s, Perry interned during several summers with the Southwestern Company, as a door-to-door book salesman. “I count my time working for Dortch Oldham [President of the Southwestern Company] as one of the most important formative experiences of my life,” Perry said in 2010. “There is nothing that tests your commitment to a goal like getting a few doors closed in your face.” He said that “Mr. Oldham taught legions of young people to communicate quickly, clearly and with passion, a lesson that has served me well in my life since then.”[18]

Upon graduation, Perry was commissioned in the Air Force, completed pilot training, and flew C-130 tactical airlift in the United States, the Middle East, and Europe until 1977. He left the Air Force with the rank of captain, returned to Texas, and went into business farming cotton with his father.”

No...I have no reservations what-so-ever. Gov Perry has a record of:

PRO-Life

PRO-2nd Amendment

AGAINST GW b.s. PRO ENERGY

AGAINST Obama Deathcare

PRO-Israel

PRO-Military

PRO-States Rights

PRO-Business/Free Market

PRO-reduced Taxes

And the cherry on the cake? Trial Lawyers in Texas HATE him. That is a bonus due to his signing 'tort reform' 'loser pays'.

No...no reservations here.

“but usually pay cash.”

That’s smart. But you obviously have ‘lines of credit’ with your credit cards. Whatever they would lend you, should you choose to use them, is your ‘line of credit’ with the credit card companies. Just because someone has a line of credit doesn’t mean s/he has to use any of it, much less its max.

So the Gingriches have a $500K line of credit w/Tiffany’s. If they purchase $100K of Tiffany products, their available credit is down to $400K till they pay the $100K. Or it could go months or even years without being used at all. All that says is that Tiffany’s thinks they’re good for the $500K. Doesn’t mean they’re ‘in hock’ to them for that amount.
