Not any more sad than you, honey. You're one of the biggest offenders to the very thing you're admonishing others for.

As for the mods, I'd bet top dollar that you've complained numerous times about posts on Perry threads.

Now, if you truly are sorry, why don't you apologize to the people you called idiots. I've pinged the 3 I can remember. Looks like your offending post was removed so I'm not 100% sure who it was.

rintense & altura,

This infighting accomplishes nothing for the conservative cause, which is to defeat the Marxist b@st@rd in the WH. Please call a truce.

I’ve complained twice, both times because of disgusting sexual innuendo.

At least that has stopped.

I don’t believe that post was pulled. I’ve never had a post pulled yet that I know of.

And isn’t truth a defense for libel?

When have I offended? I don’t go on threads about your candidate, whoever the heck that might be, and say disgusting things about him or her.

I just quietly post on Perry threads about the things I like about him. I just rationally try to answer unfair comments and insults.

I called you sad because I think it’s sad to spend your posting life going on threads about a candidate you hate and trying to gin up others to join you.

I wish I could understand the motives here. Perry is not yet a threat to whoever you’re supporting, yet you act like he is.

I still remember how you turned against a good man, George W. Bush.

So, no, I don’t understand you, and, yes I think it’s sad that you’ve become such a hater.

You are right, buckeye and I wish I’d read your post before responding to rintense.

She knows how to push my buttons! LOL

I hereby pledge that, as God is my witness, I will never post to rintense again.

If she will make a similar pledge the silly, playground stuff will grind to a much-needed halt.

They really get animated over the idea of a strong conservative president.

I wonder who they support and why they’re so against Rick Perry who is the true conservative.

Do you know who their current candidate is?

This isn’t just impacting congressional districts but local as well. We can see some of these issues here in town where the attempt is simply to redraw the districts to expand them to follow population growth. Liberals stepped in to sue to stop these. The proposed maps are completely jacked up to try to find some mythical balance, when in reality, it just keeps the poor in poor districts going to poor schools. Exactly opposite of what they claim to want.

Drawing districts is one of those silent battles going on all around the country.

HAHAHAHA! Wrong. If he were really the 'true conservative' in this race, he'd be winning, wouldn't he? Now, he's polling below Huntsman and Paul.

I do not know. I think dirtboy is for Gingrich. I think a lot of them are former Cain supporters but I don’t know where they took their alligiance.

I wish they’d say so that we could try to understand but for some reason they are reluctant to.

I’m not ashamed of my candidate. It’s on my tagline and has been since he announced.

There are so many good reasons to vote for Rick, but due to his “cow-pie things” it will be like going to a Rangers game back when the Stranger Ranger fans wore paperbags on their heads to the games.

................ just the other day, he showed he doesn't even know the number of Supreme Court justices, something most kids learn in junior high. He has shown me no indication that he is doing the preparation required for the office he is seeking.

Interesting question on it's face, the answer could be either 8 or 9. (8 SCJ and one Chief SCJ). Some do talk about them that way.

Do not let Perry's West Texas way of speaking put you off.

Nice try at spin. Too bad it isn’t supported by the comment in context:

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2011/12/09/motemayor-perry-slips-when-criticizing-judge/?hpt=hp_t2

“For Washington to tell a local school district that you cannot have prayer and a time of prayer in school is, I think, offensive to most Americans,” Perry said. “I trust the people of the states to make those decisions. I trust those independent school districts to make those decisions better than eight unelected, and frankly unaccountable judges,” Perry said.

Yep. Which is precisely why I don't get enthused about Perry.

Thanks for making my point for me, I know you didn't mean to, but, hey, you get tied up in your own spin so much that you don't know what is coming or going.

I actually had some hopes for the guy until he started to open his mouth on the national stage. To me a governor tends to make the best GOP presidential candidate, so that gave him a leg up on the others. But you can't be lacking in other areas such as basic debate and interview prep. I just don't get the feeling that Perry has done much homework for his run for the presidency.

Whereas Newt obviously has prepared long and hard for this run.

Maybe Rick Perry is smarter than you, DB.

Rick Perry got it right, from The Perry Almanac: 8-1, Eight unelected judges ended prayer in school. Yes, eight. With one dissenting vote.

Perry also didn't get Sotomayor's name right. Wanna come up with something for that?

Perry got the number wrong and then someone came up with the rationalization for it.

Texas’ March primary will likely be delayed after the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday blocked the use of state legislative and congressional district maps that were drawn by federal judges.

I don't like the precedent of delaying elections.

I don't recall that elections were delayed the last time Texas went through this.

Wouldn't it be better to let the elections continue using the current districts, and wait until the 2014 elections to implement the new maps?

I have no trouble remembering the name of the two hacks that Obama nominated. And I would think Perry, running for POTUS, would have taken an hour to learn the members of the court and their basic leanings so he could hold something remotely resembling an informed discussion of such. But, then again, he really doesn’t seem to think he has to do his homework to run for president.
