Actually, at the end of any 8 year presidency,,every one is singing...
“Thank God and Greyhound he’s gone.”
He was great, but appreciation was delayed.
Having read some background on the candidates, it seems to me (yes, it's a bit early) that Perry has both the campaign ingenuity and the experience to come out ahead of others in giving Obama a real headache.
And then there is the matter of the country. Whether we like it or not, the fate of the country (that's us) hangs in the balance. We need a champion that can take it back NOW.
I will fight tooth and nail for anyone who can bring down Obama. ANYONE (who loves America).
If we can save the country, we can then move it to the right.
Its forgivable. And Fred going to win. Giuliani is too liberal. Romney is too slick. Huckabee isnt a credible candidate. And McCain isnt sticking around.
So face it - youll be voting for Fred Thompson in 15 months, so get on the Fred express now.
I really can’t answer for Perry, but I can tell you my thoughts on why he might think the way he does.
Perry is a politician. I don’t deem him to be anything else. I live in Texas..we have a very large Hispanic population. If anyone thinks he will do anything to alienate that base, you might want to think twice. Hence the Dream Act nonsense that I totally disagree with. But it was supported by the legislature. And so far the Dems have lost.
E-Verify is a joke. Yep...you can call and find out if a ss number is valid. If not, you can inform the person. You cannot not hire them..or fire them. YET..the employer is at risk for hiring illegals.
The Texas Border really does not lend itself to a fence. Lots of rough terrain. Besides..in reality, that is a function of the federal government.
I fear there will never be any kind of provisions to stop this. If there is a candidate running today that actually has a plan..who is it? (no way they will alienate what small portion of the Hispanic vote they might get).
Perry has both good and bad qualities, but he’s not the most conservative candidate - we CAN do better!
No one’s asking you to. But nice try.
Love for Islam? Prove it.
One problem with your analysis - she isn’t running.
I find this Governor Perry news from today, both troublesome and worrisome:
Rick Perry: Illegal Immigrants Who Serve In The Military Deserve Citizenship
Good night, everyone!
Prayers for all!
Record: Talk 90% action 40%
Plans: Talk 90% action 40%
electability vs. Obama: 90%
Palin: Since her talk matches here actions she only needs one score.
Electabilty Vs. Obama 90%
The point that you’re missing is that Obama much like Perry has a record of complete failure. Obama’s poll number keep droping as more people are forced to face reality and as reality become more inevitable Obama’s chances will fade. It’s not about who Obama will be ruining against. it’s about how Obama is going to stop the course of self implosion in which he’s currently on.
They are such embarrassments.
“You cannot get me to vote for a Democrat” (re Perry)
I remember when McCain got the nomination I told my family I absolutely would not vote for him. I mean I truly loathed the man for many reasons. When it came time to vote, I of course did vote for him because I knew not doing so was going to get a much more dangerous man into the White House.
Personally, I have not made a decision on who I like the most for the republican ticket. I am hoping it is someone that is conservative and not afraid to do what’s necessary to rid us of all things Obama.
I think we all want our country represented by someone that loves America for a change. I think for those that want a particular candidate to win the nomination—do everything you can to help them win. But in the end, we get nowhere by not voting for whoever gets on the republican ticket. Not voting for the republican or voting 3rd party is truly a vote for Obama. We can all agree that another Obama term would be the worst possible outcome.
The Texas border is 1200 miles of river. The Rio Grande winds back and forth. A fence is straight, cutting off homes, ranch and farm land, and livestock from owners and water.
I am no coward. Illegal immigration is a huge deal.
But I asked..who has a plan?
I seldom look at where posters are located, but I had to with you. Looks like you are in Cali..a lovely state. I was going to post our border miles, but I think you really don’t care. Look at a map. Cal’s border is miniscule compared to Texas or Arizona. Then look at the terrain. Most of the tunnels built under “walls” are in Cal, aren’t they? How many sanctuary cities do you have? Why is your population leaving?
Until you have a politician (you may have a few) that can offer a solution, maybe you should’nt attack Texas or Texas politicians.
Impossible to avoid with a 10 year record as governor.
Let's pick someone without an executive record. That worked to get Obama elected, right? /s
Even Palin only has a short record to run on with more "fuzzy" statements on immigration than policy actions on the issue.
We need to keep perspective on Perry along with the rest so we don't end up having imagined a great candidate who isn't and handing him or her the nomination.
Thanks for those facts doc.
True, that. We need to start just comparing the candidates on the issues, especially their track records. It's one thing to say something a year before the election campaigning, the question is whether their past records indicate this is a core belief they will act upon.
It is way too early to start the bot bit, we can save the pep rally for the general. For now, let's vett these people, warts and all.
Anyone who won't look at the negatives (and all the candidates have them), isn't paying attention.
That's how we all got saddled with the current mess in the white hut, and we don't need more of the same from either side.
I am glad this was written. I don’t like what I have been seeing in the attacks on Perry from Repulicans when the real enemy is in the WH. If Sarah does not run I would easily vote for Perry and be happy about it.
We'll get to that fork in the road when it comes time.
Frankly, it's disturbing that America's richest company doesn't really care enough to give us the very best.
For the past several years here on FR Texas is always been held up as the best state for just about everything. Well, Perry has been the governor of that state for the past decade and I would vote for him for President in a heartbeat. This election is about the economy and restoring America. I have no doubt that Rick Perry loves this country and will do everything he can to make it a business friendly environment once again. That’s what matters - jobs, jobs, jobs. Perry has delivered on that front in Texas. If he doesn’t stand by conservative principles once elected to higher office, he too can be voted out in four.
As usual we have more than our fair share of RINOs and Leftwingtards trying for the Republican nomination.
Perry says he make the Federal Government ‘inconsequential to our lives’. I have just one question, is he telling the truth on this promise. If yes, I’m on board. If no, bring on Sarah. Yeah.
I simply do not believe that someone who could mandate that every 12-year-old female in his state be forced to take an experimental drug has the proper instincts to fulfill that promise.
It is the right sentiment but he is the wrong person to do it.
What are you talking about? :)
I don't enough yet to judge.
