Rick Perry Endorses Mitt Romney
myfoxla.com ^ | April 25 2012

Posted on 04/25/2012 6:01:44 PM PDT by NoLibZone

Texas Gov. Rick Perry originally endorsed Newt Gingrich as the top candidate after dropping out of the Republican presidential race.

But with Gingrich set to quit the campaign trail, Perry on Wednesday evening gave his support to the probable nominee, Mitt Romney.

"Mitt Romney has earned the Republican presidential nomination through hard work, a strong organization, and [a] disciplined message of restoring America after nearly four years of failed job-killing policies from President [Barack] Obama and his administration," Perry said in a statement provided to FOX News Channel.

"So today I join the many conservative Republicans across the nation in endorsing Mitt Romney for president and pledge to him, my constituents and the Republican Party that I will continue to work hard to help defeat President Obama.

Look at the first page of FR. It is NOT a conservative Republican forum. It is a conservative forum. And when the GOP ceases to put up conservative candidates, you can expect conservatives will say they won't vote for a liberal Romney.

There are Republican forums. Perhaps you should find one.

Axelrod and Obama love you and the GOP. Because once again, people like you are going to enable the GOP to move left, and the GOP loses when they move left.

Romney will lose. That's why the Dems and the media want him as the nominee.

Just wait for the media barrage, right after Romney gets the nomination. He'll be toast. And you will have re-elected Obama by supporting Romney.

I was one of the anti-Perry posters.

I turned against him when he signed an Executive order to make little girls be inoculated for a sexually transmitted disease.

There were other reasons but that was the iceing.

people who know me by name would laugh at your impression of me

So if I knew your REAL NAME, I would have a different impression of you? LOL!!!!! OMG! That's funny.

That's why the most conservative candidates in my area, who are among the most conservative in TX, know me by my real name.

The severely conservative? LOL! Why not give them your screen name and let them see your posts and your contempt for conservatives.

Conservatives know Romney's name and that proves what? That he's a conservative?? LOL!!

The mentality of some is just too funny as it aligns perfectly with the diseased mindset of pro homo baby killing cult leader romney.

And you remain ignorant with impressions that mean zip

I don't remain ignorant - reading your post - has enlightened me to how you lie about something most here have clear knowledge of. You are right about zip, though, because in the end - that's all you amount to - just a dime a dozen Jackz^*! liar.

STOP with the BS. Stop saying I support ROMNEY. I DON’T and my posting history makes that CRYSTAL CLEAR.

In open primary states, the DEMS did not vote for Mittens. Clearly they would NOT vote for the candidate that polls showed had the best chance of beating their Kenyan usurper.

Leave me alone. I’m done with you. Do what you have to do and so will I. November is a long way away. I will cross that bridge when I come to it.

Nope. They must be busy because I KNOW they didn’t forget about me. :)

But read a memo from the desk of LDS - everyone plans to, will be and needs to bow down to the bishop as they want to have one big cult mentality.

Why are you attacking me personally? Perry was a good man... you are not such a nice person. Do what you want but YOU are part of the problem with your attitude and treatment of those that do not agree with you., You called me sh!t... what I ave I ever called you? If Perry is represented by people like you, then he needs some new supporters.

>>you romney bots need to chill with the venom.<<

Romneybot? Seriously!?! I’m an Anyone But Obamabot. I’m a “I’d vote for a lunchbag over Obama”bot. I’ve been clearly for Cain, then Perry, then Santorum now Newt but in the end it’s ABO. Period.

If you want to think that telling the truth about the Muslim Brotherhood and Jihadis in the administration is “venom” or an “attack”, you’re not thinking clearly.

It’s very hard to get one’s mind around the fact that the GOP elite/limo RINOs jumped on the chance to get their guy in at a time when we need a strong conservative SO badly. They hold power we need to find. However, right now, unless Newt can pull it out (Lord willing), we need to save the country or there won’t be anything TO save. We can get that ultra conservative congress and hold a RINO psudolib in check. We can’t hold Obama. He will recess appoint and executive mandate us right into oblivion.

Thank you and yes... it is 24/7. Jim promised that he would not allow this to happen. He will reach a threshold and then these people will regret their decisions.

As FReepers, we can disagree... but when personal attacks take place because of a principled stand... that is not acceptable.

LOL!

You live in New York! Your state is going to go 60% for Obama regardless of your convictions! It's pretty easy to say "I'm too principled to vote for Romney" all the while knowing your vote doesn't mean jack squat.

Cool your jets... I was at work earlier and just got home. You were not the person that attacked me and I made a mistake. I apologize for that... but for nothing else that I said. You do know that we can disagree with each other about this and still share the same community? I am not telling you what to do... and I understand someone not “supporting” romney and not “promoting” romney but voting against obama by voting for him. I have had to do that my entire life... but for Ronald Reagan and GW’s first term... which he promised Reagan and delivered a slightly more conservative version of his dad. I meant screw ALL of mitt's supporters... the people that come to places like FR and try to sell mitt as something that he isn't. Those people I do have a problem with... so does Jim. I await the day that he draws the line and starts enforcing his promised intolerance for the promotion of romney on this site. I am not stupid and I am not naive nor am I uninformed as to the reality in which I live. I am telling you that I am now beyond where you are... I have been exactly where you are and telling FReepers the very same things. No more. I will not vote for a baby killing, gun grabbing socialist liar and member of some strange religious cult that includes such things as magic underwear and spirit planets and the like. I will NEVER vote for him... you should respect that... as I respect your decision. I do not agree with it but I will not try to tell you what to do.

I think you’re a jacka$$ but I’m sure the DUmmies, KOS kiddies, Axelrod and the Kenyan Commie love you. They count on people like you to give Barry 4 more years to “fundamentally TRANSFORM America”. Think how proud you will be if you can help them achieve that. In the meantime, you can call me liberal until the cows come home but it’s false and my past posts speak for themselves....3 1/2 years, should be easy for you to check them out. When you find my liberal posts, get back to me but saying ABO doesn’t count. If you can’t find anything(and you won’t) don’t bother to respond, we are now officially done.

I won't vote for Romney. He's a liberal.

Anyone that would vote for a liberal isn't a conservative.

I respected your request to leave you alone. You wouldn't leave it alone.

It's people like you that will give Obama 4 more years because the GOP knows they can count on you to vote for whatever liberal or moderate they push. This is the 5th time in a row. And they just keep moving left.

And people like you support them with ABO.

What about anybody but a liberal?
