Statement by Gov. Rick Perry on Obama Administration’s Use of Gay Rights to Make Foreign Aid Decisions

AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement:

“Just when you thought Barack Obama couldn’t get any more out of touch with America’s values, AP reports his administration wants to make foreign aid decisions based on gay rights.

“This administration’s war on traditional American values must stop.

“I have proposed a foreign aid budget that starts at zero. From that zero baseline, we will consider aid requests based solely on America’s national security interests. Promoting special rights for gays in foreign countries is not in America’s interests and not worth a dime of taxpayers’ money.

“But there is a troubling trend here beyond the national security nonsense inherent in this silly idea. This is just the most recent example of an administration at war with people of faith in this country. Investing tax dollars promoting a lifestyle many Americas of faith find so deeply objectionable is wrong.

“President Obama has again mistaken America’s tolerance for different lifestyles with an endorsement of those lifestyles. I will not make that mistake.”

It’ll be interesting to see if we still give any aid to the Palistinians or other muslim double-talking child boinkers.

Hell, disregarding the fact that he's my governer, Rick gets my vote based on that, alone.

Nobody is hearing this, shield. ANY of it. The msm will not allow Rick Perry to be heard. newt has been chosen. He has the clinton seal of approval just as mccain did. I don’t know how we change this, but we had better.

Kudo’s to Perry on this one at least he has balls to speak u0p on this issue unlike some in the GOP .

Actually, I agree with Zero on this. Given that most of our aid is to backward third world countries that do not give a hoot about any human rights.... we just cut several billion out of the budget.

Perry’s team is changing that. Romney was choosen also. Now look at him. There will be a shot that takes Newt out and it’s not far off.

It sure is a different world now... Used to be that foreign aid was used as leverage to bring warring states to the negotiating table, or to exact certain strategic actions. Now it’s all about “gay rights.”

Well, “gay” may be the “in thing” in New America, but it’s not quite so fashionable in other places in the world. Erstwhile recipients of U.S. foreign aid will look to China and do their bidding instead.

Perry needs to do this right out loud so people can hear it! Putting it up on his website won’t get it. He has all but disappeared since the letterman show, and the news networks aren’t allowing any attention to be paid to him. It’s newt, 24/7 everywhere and it is sickening.

I am getting to the point that if gingrich or romney ends up with the nomination, I am going to write in Tim Tebow!!!

When we borrow 41 cents of every dollar we send to other countries this is one of Perry's planks I support.

romney didn’t have the clinton seal of approval, shield. gingrich does...which means that gingrich has sold his soul exactly like mccain did. If it even begins to look as if Perry is back in this race, he will be Palined or Cained, or worse.
I can see the day when some freak crawls out from under a rock and claims he had sex with Rick Perry. It WILL happen. Such is the way of the G-dless, the power-hungry, the crooks, and the greedy.

Obama making decisions on foreign aid based on acceptance of homosexuality? Given his penchant for supporting radical Islam, the cognitive dissonance should end up making his head explode.

Of course, this is much more likely to be a "talking point" designed for the campaign trail.

It seems that way, doesn’t it.

It infuriates me that the media is totally ignoring Rick Perry.

They’re afraid to speak his name these days.

What is this? Sold on Newt? Sold on Romney?

Mrs. Romney was on Fox this morning. She seems like a nice lady, but why not have Anita Perry on?

Rick Perry believes all the right things, has done all the right things and says all the right things.

He has no disqualifying stuff in his background but does have a proven conservative record.

Well, if there’s anything I’ve learned over the past 6 or 7 weeks it’s that anyone who underestimates Tebow does so at their own risk. And the MSM for sure hates Tebow even more than your run of the mill conservative.

Tebow for President!

I would not worry about Perry being derailed by some sort of made-up accusations.

He’s been in the public eye too long.

The dems and the media in Texas hate him and they’ve been scrounging around in his closet for skeletons for years and haven’t found a thing.

I would not have heard about this unless Shield posted it. Perry speaks for a super majority of Americans: Foreign aid baseline starts at 0 and no special treatment for homosexuals.

I think Hillary is out in front of the gay foreign aid idea. I believe I read a story on Drudge and just shook my head.

The Republican party wants to play nice with Obama. Perry is taking the battle right to him instead. I like that about him.

Allbaugh is not ready for Perry to have a target on his back.

Perry bought a lot of ads on FNC to air nationally so Fox has to literally count the number of times they mention Perry in the Magazine shows. They can cover him as news all they want but in opinion shows they have to pull back because of equal time rules. The Perry camp would have known this when he bought the Ad time.

Hannity says he wants Perry to get elected and FNC is selling air time to Perry then the rest of the field can go after Fox for violating the equal time laws. So they are covering their butts by limiting how often they promote him as a candidate.

Perry wants to control the messaging more than trusting the bloviators.

Perry bought those ads after his fake brain freeze in that debate. When he was on those programs and several FNC programs is when he purchased them.

I hope he, Bachmann, or Santorum can pick up some momentum here in the next few weeks...

The only way this could happen is if self-professed real conservatives got off their collective arses and supported one of them. It isn't happening. Why?

Contrary to prevailing opinion here, the media doesn't choose our candidates. We do, from a group of people who put themselves forward and run in the primaries. So why are Gingrich, Romney and Paul leading in the polls? Hmmmm...?

Your going to see a Reagan outcome with Perry. Just hold on it is comin'.

Reagan was treated the same as Perry and also had some debate problems. The GOP establishment tried to stop him with Kay Bailey Hutchinson...that so called powerful machine didn't stop him. The GOP stabbed Reagan in the back as they have done to Perry.

Perry Could Rise in Iowa, Polling Data Shows .........."And, significantly, Perry’s positive rating among likely Iowa caucus-goers is at a commanding 67 percent. And a stellar 71 percent view him positively after having seen one of his commercials.

Other numbers that suggest a potential rise: Perry stands at 78 percent positive among self-identified tea party members, according to the survey.

But he also enjoys strong support among Iowa’s undecided voters, at 71 percent.

One of the poll’s most interesting findings: 67 percent of respondents overall — and a whopping 75 percent who are leaning toward former House Speaker Gingrich — state that they still may change their minds. That finding suggests that, with just a few weeks to go before the caucuses, the Iowa electorate remains very fluid."....

No we didn't. The money is still there. It just means we can "reward" certain countries that are accepting of perversion.
