Rick Perry is going to try to void Obamacare by the executive branch.
Nominate his Sec. of HHS and scrap all the rules because there’s hundreds
of rules that HHS makes.

Maybe this is an ingenious plan by Perry.

Or Perry is a complete rogue. ??? That’s why Ken C. was kind of incredulous.

He did mention the Supreme Court upcoming decision in summer.

- I have encountered many people like Newt over the years

- When the chips are down Newt will always do what is best for Newt

- Newt will always leave without paying his share of the tab

- “I depend upon the naiveté of others” - Newt

Yeah....you’re right. But I can’t say for sure that’s it since I support Newt enthusiastically and he’s got the charisma of an actuary.

I wish they would ask then all who their fav founding father is.

I would say, my favorite founding “person” is Abigail Adams !! She was cool. Fighting for women’s rights and freedom from slavery.

The questioners are demanding specifics and justification under the rule of law. Puts Perry out of his depth. As much as I like Mr. Cain, I just told Mrs. GBC that I couldn't see Herman keeping up.

She commented that you will never see the Dems participating in this type format.

Great Huck Forum! Newt was on as always..is he ever off his game..love him or hate him. Santorum, a little fuzzy..Perry, a tad confused. But three bright men...

BTW, Breaking NEWS:

And the more you look at this new DMR poll just out the better it gets for Newt.

http://caucuses.desmoinesregister.com/2011/12/03/des-moines-register-iowa-poll-gingrich-leads-three-candidate-race-in-iowa/

“One notable finding: The results show Gingrich’s ascendancy has the potential to grow, pollster J. Ann Selzer said.

More respondents choose Gingrich as their second choice than any other candidate.”

I’m waffling between Perry and Santorum now.

I think my heart is still broken about Herman Cain. I know his campaign manager, and am so disappointed that Cain was not vetted properly first so there wouldn’t be surprises.

Finally, an illegal immigration question. I wonder if Huckabee will bring up the mythical person that has lived in the US for 25 years w/out committing a crime, has a family, goes to church, hasn’t taken taxpayer benefits, and just happens to be an “undocumented immigrant” as a reason to have a path to legal status plan that would end deportation of all illegal aliens.

And on a side note.....
Just saw a mattress ad. They might want to rethink having a woman say: “Ask my husband why I never wake up any more when he comes to bed.”

Even if Cain had been vetted, it doesn’t mean that these things wouldn’t have happened. The Democrats were going to get rid of him no matter what.

To assume that these are anything more than outright lies, is to assume that he was guilty of everyone of these accusations. And today, there is still no definitive proof that he didn’t anything wrong. Other than not telling his wife about loaning money to a lady.

If Newt has money, why not buy his wife expensive Jewelry? Would you feel better is he bought her stuff from Kay Jewelers?

Too bad that the money Newt to pay for those gifts earned had the stinking stain of Fannie Mae on it.

No, he bought the jewelry technically on credit, but only because we typically don’t carry around 1/2 a million when we visit a store. It was a regular Tiffany’s revolving account, which Gingrich paid in full within a month or two.

I like Perry. He's now my number 2 choice. But, he doesn't grasp the importance of killing Obamacare with legislation that says, "Repeal in its entirety." Kill the beast with legislation, not with an executive order that the ACLU can challenge in court.

Color me fed-up with DogPoo(R). RNC, you’re dead to me.

They lost me when GHW Bush was their nominee. At least Noot recognizes the evil danger of agenda 21. I like my governor more than Perry. A lot more. State's rights.

Here's what: we can't let Zero pick the next Supremes. We can't let DeathCare go into action.

It isn't over, it's just just beginning.
