I will work every day to make Washington, DC as inconsquential in your life as I can, says Rick Perry as he announces for president. Well, there it is. The 2012 race in a nutshellAmerica is not broken. Washington D.C. is broken, as Perry said, in contrast to Barack Obamas continuing insistence that government must somehow lead the way out of the economic doldrums with infrastructure banks and payroll tax cuts and extending unemployment insurance. If the dividing line between Republicans and Democrats is that Democrats want, in some sense, to direct America from Washington, Republicans believe the United States should not be directed, and should instead be managed as close to the citizenry as possible.
Most people outside Texas know very little about Perry, but given his standing as a kind of amalgam of George W. Bush and Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee, he may soon occupy an unprecedented position in the imagination of liberals and the Leftperhaps the most frightening specter of anti-liberalism since Ronald Reagan precisely because he is electable. The conservative boogeyman is back."

Rye bread and lima beans can’t take away your welfare.
“Yep. The liberals are terrified of Perry.”
Close, Conservatives are TERRIFIED of Perry, because of the damage a left-leaning Republican president can do.
But call me names if you think that helps your man, I’ll let my 10,000 posts on this site speak for themselves.
The media is mostly made up of partisan shill organizations and individuals working for the Demwits; they felt the sting of the 2010 referendum at least as deeply as the Demwit officeholders did. In 2012 the voters will reject both even more.
I'm gonna have to think about that one.
Even NumbersUsa, who gave most of the candidates a really bad report card (Perry D-, Palin D), ranked Perry as GOOD on the subject of border security.
What do you mean? You personally have delivered 10% of Palin’s flack to Perry, but unlike Palin, he’s still standing and will never quit on us.
Well at least your objection is reasonable, and the first reasonable objection I’ve heard about Perry since he announced.
Bob, you and the other four guys that think Rick is not conservative are really quite boorish.
But,I don’t think we will hear that.
There are three issues which I cannot compromise on.
Gun control, abortion, and immigration.
I like Perry but if he is wrong on any of these issues I cannot support him.
I fully expect the markets to make short work of both Medicare and Social Security at this point. when Bernanke is thru...a typical SS check won’t buy mouse food...and the medicare “benefit” will pay for the Kervorkian Konsult.
Perry the NEW John McLaim..
America may not fall for the bait and switch this time..
But you’re OK with FUBO? He’s creating real damage and destruction.
BTW, your 10,000 posts are meaningless, doesn’t mean you opinions are god-like. Just shows you have a lot of time on your hands.
I want to see people leaving Washington DC by the 10’s of thousands looking elsewhere for productive work.
The housing bubble should collapse there as it has done in the rest of the country.
Perry = Obama on illegal immigration. Like Obama, when Perry says Enforcement he means deporting only those who commit serious felonies. Texas is a magnet for illegals because Perry gives them college tution and welfare.
Nonsense. You keep waiting for St. Sarah to run. Until she does, the attacks on others is stupid. obami is the enemy, not other candidates.
[Perry] “directly attacked and admonished Obama for not fulfilling his oath as president to protect our nations borders from the illegal alien invasion.”
Perry is hiding behind Obama. All the RINO and Democratic governors pretend that they want to enforce the immigation laws. That allows governors like Perry to leave their borders wide open and say “It’s not my problem — it’s the Federal government’s job”.
