Skip to comments.Live Thread: Perry Press Conference [Endorses Newt]
Posted on 01/19/2012 8:14:02 AM PST by KansasGirl
Waiting on Perry to take podium any moment! He will endorse Newt!
I think that went over some people's heads, very funny!
“The live video brought tears to my eyes. I think he is destined for greatness. Will make a great VP.”
What a conundrum! Do I vote for the apostate Mormon or the serial adultor?
.... A FORGIVEN serial adulterer.
The issue is not adultery. The issue is being an adult. Perry just showed how that is done.
Sounds plausible. Or a cabinet post.
God bless Rick Perry - what a great speech from a true Patriot.
He had the courage to ‘get in the arena’ and I believe his endorsement of Newt will be respected and followed.
“I feel very, very sad for Perry supporters today.
He was my second choice, should Newt have petered out. Now I dont have a 2nd choice. He is a class act.
As a Perry supporter, thank you. I can’t tell you how sad I feel. That press conference broke my heart. I feel that America just lost its best chance for leadership. Perry stands head and shoulders above the rest. May God bless him.
Welcome home Rick - Go Newt!
GROW UP AND BEHAVE YOURSELF!
He's not an apostate.
FNC now doing their best to limit the impact this will have in helping Newt! Spin says it’s meaningless because his poll numbers are low anyway.
Wow, what a speech and endorsement.
I saw a man with gentle greatness and one that truly loves this country.
I wish Gov. Perry well.
Possibly they're a lot more relaxed because once the decision is made, the pressure and stress are gone. Also, for anyone with hopes of a future political career, these speeches are the last chance to make a good impression to linger until "next time".
Bret Baier says he disagrees with previous guest that this endorsement is meaningless. He thinks Newt will get atleast 5-6 pts. because of this! He things it is significant because it is the first real movement of conservatives to unite behind one candidate.
I would LOVE seeing him take KBH’s seat just to shove the rove/bush twofaced, backstabbing, liberal cabal’s face in it. HUGE.
“I felt that way from the beginning. I cannot believe that so many FReepers were attacking this conservative Governor with the vitriol that they were. There is no perfect candidate. By the standards set by some, Reagan would have been skewered.”
I agree with you; it was a disgrace. The vitriol I saw made me sign up with FR so I could add my support for Perry. And some of the most egregious offenders will now gush over Perry and thank him for his endorsement.
I'm sure Rove's Blackberry is buzzing constantly with texts from Myth.
I think that is where he will stay.
Maybe a senate run fo KBHs seat. Delicious irony there.
Personally I don’t think so. We already have seven or so in the race after the first filing period closed. A 2nd filing period mandated by the Feds will offer an opportunity ending in Feb. Strong candidates include Ted Cruz, David Dewhurst and Tom Leppert that are already in the race.
A little reminiscent of Ronald Reagan conceding to Ford in '76. People were left wondering if the wrong man conceded.
Hopefully, we will see more of Governor Perry on the national stage in years to come. A class act.
I'm still on 'pause' with Newt's moral issues. BIG stumbling block for me.
West Texans are a different breed. Thank God for my roots.
I make NO apology. The rest of the country would do well no follow some of us around for a few years.
Very eloquent. Very sad. :(
It is sad to see this great man have slipped through our country’s voters hands. God Bless the Perry family!
Out of the three that you listed, I like Ted Cruz the most.
Thank you for your contributions, governor Perry. I am impressed by everything you did and said except for the headless part.
Larry Sabato also thinksmit is significant. Said it adds to Newtmentum!
Got to defer to you, deport. Still, Perry is Trxas. It is one of the most unique states I have ever been in and I love it. I think Perry loves it far more than I do and DC would just drain him. I would hate to see that happen.
Larry Sabato also thinks it is significant. Said it adds to Newtmentum!
I wish you well; you'll still be young enough to run again in 2016. If the GOP find a way to reelect Obama... think about it. Seriously.
Heartless!! Not headless!! Sheesh.
The Man in the Arena
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
God bless you, Governor Perry - you’re a good man.
And welcome home to our beloved Texas.
FNC is trash.
what will happen to Perry’s vote from SC absentee’s that already voted or does SC have absentee vote in primary?
If it Romney wins within difference of Perry’s vote can they give electorial to Newt?
You got that right!
Newt’s statement on Perry endorsement:
Exactly...he will remain in Texas. He loves being Governor there and certainly he believes he's made great strides for the state. So why leave for a Washington position when he's shinning for Texas...not to mention all the projects he's moving there.
My Catholic faith teaches me that I must forgive others as I ask God to forgive me.
” Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.”
I agree !!! Newt/Perry 2012 !!!!
But, He did die to save us from our sins: if we assume our own "righteousness" does, we are swallowing the line of the Deceiver hook, line and sinker!
Newt's "vision for America" is right on: his view of himself is what has been pretty faulty--which it is for any human who is blind to the truth that he is fallen creature, guilty of sin, and worthy of "temporal and eternal punishment."
But Christ died precisely for this creature--it is His Righteousness that we put on--not our own.
If Newt is now professing to be a believer in Christ Jesus, I WILL hope and pray he has been given at least a glimpse of this incredible and precious truth, and also fervently pray that God keep his eyes "fixed on Jesus"--for his own sake, and for the sake of our own "one nation, under God!"
Unforgivable. If people have issues with a candidate, they should address those issues, not engage in hate and slander. I was very disappointed by many of those posts and I hope I never see that kind of attack again.
It is nice to know that Governor Perry would go along with the people of this state if we had to succeed from the Union..and believe me there are those of us that is so scared that Obama and his thugs will be reelected or steal the presidency again..
Go Newt bring down the filthy democrat Commie Muslim..
