Perry: We donít need outsidersí views on Senate race (Are you listening, Sarah Palin?)
Texas Chronicle ^ | Friday June 1, 2012 | Peggy Fikac

Gov. Rick Perry is once again slamming “out-of-state interest groups” backing former solicitor general Ted Cruz in his runoff with Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst –this time tweaking Sarah Palin, U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint and Rick Santorum by suggesting their states could learn a lot from Texas, but Texas doesn’t need their advice on choosing its next U.S. senator.

Perry, standing staunchly behind Dewhurst, brushed off the question about whether his own tea party credibility may be damaged by his opposition to Cruz, who has been endorsed by national conservative and tea party groups and figures (including Palin, DeMint and Santorum) in the runoff for the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate.

[...]

Without naming Palin, DeMint or Santorum, Perry called them to mind by naming their states: “I appreciate everybody paying attention to Texas – as well they should, they could learn some things on how to run South Carolina and Pennsylvania and Alaska.

“Come to Texas and learn how to do it right, but don’t come down here and tell us who needs to be our next United States senator, thank you very much. We’ll decide that without your outside, Washington, D.C.-oriented help,” Perry said.

Perry just might have run out of his welcome in my state of Texas.

Palin, DeMint, and Santorum on one side...Perry on the other.

Where is the popcorn icon? This thread should be fun...

Cmon Rick.

Sarah Palin isn't an interest group. Oh no. Sarah is a Cause; a Force Majeure.

Lots of pro Palin family in Texas, they are not going to take kindly to this slight.

Perry’s right.
Cruz is a good candidate but we sure as hell didn’t need Our Sarah to tell us that.

Folks in other states might be ignorant enough to need Her Highness
to make decisions for them but we’ll pass, thanks. Go make a sandwich.

Looks like Perry needs another bitch slapping. He hasn’t quite learned his lesson.

Perry apparently needs Palin to set him straight.

I guess Perry isn’t as smart as we were led to believe during the primaries...

Oh wait, I think I got that backwards.

His opinion may differ from mine, but it's HIS and he needs no out of state help with it.

He'd probably appreciate a nice sandwich, though.

A WHOLE sandwich, not just a half of one, thanks.

La Raza Rick Perry is an idiot.

When a senator's vote affects us all (and they do) everyone has a right to an opinion. Or is the governor not familiar with the First Amendment?
