Posted on 09/21/2011 3:56:47 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
PROVEN LEADERSHIP PERRYS NEW AD: Rick Perrys campaign is launching an epic new bio spot today. The first 40 seconds attack PRESIDENT ZERO, juxtaposing eerie images of national stagnation with footage of Barack Obama taking responsibility for the economy. A tornado siren playing over the presidents voice creates a palpable sense of alarm. The last minute of the web ad introduces Perry as a job creator and veteran who believes Americas best days are ahead, rotating sunny images of the country at its best with footage from the Texas governors announcement speech. Lucas Baiano, who produced the spot, has signed on with Perry after working for Tim Pawlenty. Watch it: HERE.

Denial is not really fitting. Your actions are pro Mitt and counter productive. You are however not alone. Others have the pernicious disease as well
Puts me in mind of something my dear father-in-law used to say: “A wise man sometimes changes his mind, but a damn fool never does.”
Regarding the koolade, I am not a drinker nor a purveyor.
I am not a Perrybot.I am an observer and relate what I actually see and read.
I favor Herman Cain
The year was 1980, when one in four Democrats voted Republican. They soon became known as Reagan Democrats.
It was not until 1984, when Reagan won an even larger landslide victory against Walter Mondale and expanded Republican identification to 35 percent of the electorate from 28 percent in 1980, that one could say these disaffected Democrats became Reagan loyalists. They were voting for Reagan more than they were voting against Mondale.
Take a lesson from Reagan http://www.brspoll.com/commentary/TakeALessonFromReagan.php?sp=true
And then after Reagan's massive 1984 win, the 1988 election is far closer.
Many people who identified themselves as Democrats voted for Reagan and voted democrat again in 1988. To be shocked that Perry did the same as thousands of others is consistent with many conservative leaning democrats of that time.
The NAME of that candidate would be?
Not at all.
I’m tired of discussing this with people who don’t get it even after it is clearly explained to them.
The so called Dream Act is nothing of the sort, really. It means that people will not be investigated for possibly being illegal in order to deny them in state tuition, because everyone is treated the same, if you attend a high school for 3 years and graduate, you will be considered in state, not out of state. You need to get it, once and for all, that without this law, millions of Hispanics could potentially be investigated, simply because they wanted to attend college, on suspicion of being illegal simply because they are Hispanics.
My point about the military tradition of Texas Hispanics is lost on you, obviously.
My point is that those families have been here for generations and it would be a bad thing to be investigated if you were one of them, and so patriotic your families had always served in the military, but you graduate high school and are investigated as a possible illegal because you are Hispanic.
Without the law, which applies to everyone no matter any other considerations, that would always be hanging over people of Hispanic decent in Texas. And in Texas there are so many who are as American and as Texan as I am, who are Hispanics, which I am not. But the ignoramuses throughout the rest of this country look at every one of them as a likely illegal.
And I won’t suffer ignoramuses gladly.
My point about the vote in the TX legislative bodies is that it was so overwhelming, it proves the support was there for this across the board and it is stupid to pretend that it happened because of Rick Perry supposedly being a RINO.
Yes, I said it, stupid and asinine as well.
It’s unfortunate that the generalization keeps getting proven time and time again.
What President secured the border?
What candidate is stronger and has experience dealing with border issues? This was my biggest complaint with Bush.
But, Perry is NOT Bush.
Perry will secure the border as Commander in Chief when he has the authority, the funds and the man power/equipment available to him.
Reagan gave them amnesty and did not secure the border.
I didn’t vote for Reagan the first time either. I was a Texas Democrat too. I switched to Republican because of Reagan’s first term and I did vote for him for re-election.
I have been a Republican every since.
Texas was predominately Democrat in the 80’s.
Texas is now predominately Republican.
Texas Democrats in the 1980’s = Republicans.
The Democratic party left them and they switched to Republican.
Zero is toast.
“...keeps getting proven time and time again.”
Your statement does not negate the fact that it is a sweeping generalization.
Where has this been *proven?*
Your statement: Its that basic dishonesty thing that Perry and his supporters have.
At this juncture, I am supporting Gov. Perry. I certainly do NOT want Romney....and I have not been dishonest.
By the way, where has Gov. Perry been dishonest?
I like this ad...
An “aide” says. I don’t believe it. I state that it is an outright falsehood that is part of Perry’s attempts to misrepresent his past liberal affiliations. Willard did the same exact thing. We fully well know liberal/RINO politicians LIE when it suits them.
Again, how do you explain away this “Conservative”’s support for Socialist Al Gore, who opposed Reagan’s agenda ? Giuliani ? It doesn’t pass the smell test.
Filbert Farhart. Stop wasting my time.
Ahhhhh....so you have no cogent response?
Ma’am, there’s so much malarkey in that post, I don’t know where to begin. If you believe Open-Borders Perry will somehow do a 180, I’d like to sell you a bridge in Brooklyn.
“Texas Democrats in the 1980s = Republicans.”
Demonstrably baloney. You’re talking to a political historian.
He changed his mind because of Obama, because people were pressuring him to run including his own family, many many Texans, many many Republicans and because there wasn’t strong Republican candidates running.
Would you feel better if he said, oh well, lets take a chance on 4 more years of Obama?
Read my posts. I’ve only answered that a few hundred times.
You don’t believe.
At the same time, Democrats control the majority of the Texas House, Texas Senate and most of the Texas State level elected positions. And Reagan won the state in both elections.
But Perry must have been different from all those other Texas Democrats that voted for Reagan and then remained in the Democrat party. Got it.
