Ricky is a rank opportunist. A Carterite and then a Gorebot and then a Bushian. He never was a Conservative.

“People need to settle down a bit. Perry is a conservative “

I sure would like you to spell out your definition of conservative.

Rick Perry is a RINO, has been since taking over from Bush a Gov. of Texas.

Governor Perry has forgotten the one thing that Tea Partiers have in common with the GOP Elephant.

L-O-N-G MEMORIES.

“So now they want to make it worse by Voting for Democrats?”

Ok smart-ass, please define worse? We have as bad as it can get. Mitch is a RINO - which equals Blue Dog Democrat - which equals big g’ment SOCIALIST

I hope the KY electorate will choose Bevin in primary and general.

If I were from KY I’d be voting Bevin, not McConnell.

But,

“Voting for RINOs is the same as voting for any other Tyrant.”

Is not true and is n fact a lie to keep Dems in power.

It is an empty liberal viewpoint and worldview wherein the world is expected to be perfect or else it is all horrible.

I'm a Texan who has put up with Rick Perry in politics for 2.5 decades. I warned people when he was running for the GOP nomination for Prez in 2012: Rick Perry is an empty suit and not the brightest light in the harbor. He is a career politician who is part of the "Good ol' boy" network and his wife is a ditz."

Rand Paul and now Perry; endorsing McConnell. There's an explanation for that. McConnell has pictures of Paul and Perry "sixty-nining" oral sex on each other.

I live in KY. I’ll vote for the Dem before I’ll vote for McConnel. Dead serious.

Anyone who would vote for a Democrat from Kentucky for Senate this year is a Democrat, RINO, or simply not a conservative. He is voting for President Obama/Senate Majority Reid, and the rest of the Democrat platform.

That’s certainly one way to look at it. It’s not about the democrat. It’s about McConnel. I don’t want him representing me. Period. No six termers!

Guess there is one more 2016 presidential candidate on the short list that won't have my vote. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ I'm in total agreement with you. But, remember folks: Rand Paul endorsed McConnell also and is working hard to see him win his Primary. So, what's good for Perry is good for Paul. So, say "NO" to both in 2016.

I can understand that line of thinking. I think Perry and many others in the republican elite are thinking if we don’t get the senate back this year we are totally screwed.

That line of thinking is why we are in the mess we're in now and the GOP has been taken over by RINOs. Let me help you, and Ricky boy out. We will take at least 9 seats from the Dems in the Senate Races this year. We don't need to become political whores like Rick Perry and Rand Paul. Besides, Matt Bevin, the TRUE Conservative in KY, will win the General Election and polls show that McConnell will not.

Barring unfgoreseen circumstances, after the election, either Senate Majority Leader Reid and President Obama will continue to represent your interests or Senator McConnell and a Republican Senate will act as a check on the dictator; those are your real choices.

I think its really counter productive to label good solid people like Rick Perry and Rand Paul as hoes. I don’t hear anybody calling Sarah Palin that for backing McStain who is a total whackjob. At this rate we will whittle the field of nominees down to zero.

WE all hope Matt Bevins wins but what if he doesn’t?

We have to keep Jeb and Crispy and Huck out of it. Thats who we should be concentrating the negativity at.

No I think Perry is interested in making sure we take the Senate back and he thinks Mitch is the most likely to win that senate race.

Even though personally I loathe McConnell I can understand that line of thinking. I think Perry and many others in the republican elite are thinking if we don’t get the senate back this year we are totally screwed.

Three more years of unfettered Obama and we are going to be in CWII. Because the rule of law is being thrown out the door.

First sane post on this thread. What do Republicans not understand about a united front?

hoot: “Voting for RINOs is the same as voting for any other Tyrant.”

ifin: Is not true and is n fact a lie to keep Dems in power.

Republicans in a Massachusetts voted for a RINO with their eyes wide open and got state-run health care and gay marriage. They may have been voting RINO with Republican intentions, but they were functionally voting Democrat and gave power to that force.

I voted for Arnold Schwarzenegger and for Meg Whitman -- it was either Meg or Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown. Arnold was a functional Democrat; Whitman would have been a functional leftist Democrat nanny nightmare fully on board with the environmental take-over of freedom.

RINO Schmino. Intentions don't mean squat. Function is what counts.

And you want to talk about a "lie to keep Dems in power," FRiend finnegan? That lie is that when you vote for a GOP politician who advances tyranny, that you're voting "against" tyranny. THAT is a lie to keep Dems in power even when Republicans win.

Well, Irish Eyes, I’ve used this analogy once before but I’ll use it again for you: Where McConnell is concerned, a lot of people feel like a wife whose husband has lied to her repeatedly, been unfaithful and cheated on her though she has given him chance after chance. She reaches a point to where she doesn’t even care anymore. She just doesn’t give a s**t. She just wants to see him hurt. And to pour salt on the wound, the person she thought was her friend becomes “the other woman” (Rand and Rick) who takes up with the lying, cheating husband. Now she feels betrayed by both and just wants revenge.

Apparently you are not as vindictive as most of us FReepers. And, that’s a good thing; I guess.

Every time I think Rick Perry has figured out it may be good to keep his yap shut, and just not give out endorsements...

The dumbsh!t bug bites him and this happens...

Am I surprised this made the news...Nope...

This statement was designed to illicit a response out of the true conservative base just to pizz us off...

The “Moderate/Pro-GOP Establishment” Perry is gone after this cycle...Hopefully there will not be a Governor Wendy Davis to have to deal with...

If Texas is to stay red, and its not looking good...WE have to make sure we get the vote out...And republicans are notorious for not doing that in the last 15 years...

If you want to remain the status Quo in the Lt. Governors race, by all means vote for the Establishment tard Dewhurst, or vote for the “Do you know WHO I am!!!” Dan Patrick in the runoff coming up...He’s a pompous shrill and he tends to lie a lot about stuff...But hey, proofs in the pudding...

Dispite former Texas AG Greg Abbott being my choice for Gov...Most of the rest of the top jobs are a bunch of goobs at this point...

The only one of that bunch would be Ken Paxton for AG...The rest are part of an engineered slate of folks who bought their way into this opportunity...

And we are going to have to put up with some nonsense at the end of the day...No way around it at this point...

Unless you’re ok with Democrats running Texas...

Just my opinion...

So you actually advocate voting for Democrats over Republicans?

It’s hard to know your point (except you aren’t too bright, e.g. I did not vote for Arnold, nor Bustamente - I want fooled. So don’t take out your stupidity on the rest of us.

You also have libleftyitis where you think the world must be perfect or else it is thoroughly corrupt.

You, like the lib lefties, compare your idea of paradise to what we have, and because we don’t live in a paradise of your imagination, you want to destroy and become nihilistic.
