Perry: We donít need outsidersí views on Senate race (Are you listening, Sarah Palin?)
Texas Chronicle ^ | Friday June 1, 2012 | Peggy Fikac

Posted on 06/01/2012 4:06:14 PM PDT by Bigtigermike

Gov. Rick Perry is once again slamming “out-of-state interest groups” backing former solicitor general Ted Cruz in his runoff with Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst –this time tweaking Sarah Palin, U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint and Rick Santorum by suggesting their states could learn a lot from Texas, but Texas doesn’t need their advice on choosing its next U.S. senator.

Perry, standing staunchly behind Dewhurst, brushed off the question about whether his own tea party credibility may be damaged by his opposition to Cruz, who has been endorsed by national conservative and tea party groups and figures (including Palin, DeMint and Santorum) in the runoff for the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate.

[...]

Without naming Palin, DeMint or Santorum, Perry called them to mind by naming their states: “I appreciate everybody paying attention to Texas – as well they should, they could learn some things on how to run South Carolina and Pennsylvania and Alaska.

“Come to Texas and learn how to do it right, but don’t come down here and tell us who needs to be our next United States senator, thank you very much. We’ll decide that without your outside, Washington, D.C.-oriented help,” Perry said.

Perry just might have run out of his welcome in my state of Texas.

Palin, DeMint, and Santorum on one side...Perry on the other.

Where is the popcorn icon? This thread should be fun...

Cmon Rick.

Sarah Palin isn't an interest group. Oh no. Sarah is a Cause; a Force Majeure.

Lots of pro Palin family in Texas, they are not going to take kindly to this slight.

Perry’s right.
Cruz is a good candidate but we sure as hell didn’t need Our Sarah to tell us that.

Folks in other states might be ignorant enough to need Her Highness
to make decisions for them but we’ll pass, thanks. Go make a sandwich.

Oh wait, I think I got that backwards.

His opinion may differ from mine, but it's HIS and he needs no out of state help with it.

He'd probably appreciate a nice sandwich, though.

A WHOLE sandwich, not just a half of one, thanks.

La Raza Rick Perry is an idiot.

When a senator's vote affects us all (and they do) everyone has a right to an opinion. Or is the governor not familiar with the First Amendment?

Hey Perry,

I guess it’s alright for all the GOPe money flowing in from Washington. In addition, the next senator from the state of Texas will affect me here in Tennessee and conservatives across the nation with their votes.

Thank God for conservative outside groups.
They counterbalance the astroturffers from DC!!!!

My advice to you Perry is get used to it.

There was a time when Governor Perry held a different opinion regarding Governor Palin's endorsement in Texas elections.

I guess you don’t realize your soon to be new Texas senator
will affect me here in Tennessee and conservatives nationwide with their votes.

So, millions of conservatives across the nation have an interest in who your next senator will be.

Catch my drift?

“When a senator’s vote affects us all (and they do)...”

Exactly! Conservatives everywhere should be highly interested in seating a supermajority of conservative Senators, and that means that we should think nationally when ALL congressional Senate races are being decided.

Now he done it, stirring up a hornet's nest.

Perry's failure to capture the nomination is mostly self-made. Most of us gave him plenty of fair chances. He can not be taking it out on ‘outsiders’.

I hope Gov. Perry come off the encounter relatively unstung.

Exactly. Yet somehow that salient fact has escaped the mind of the man named Perry.

If I were Rick Perry, I would do three things:

First, support Cruz.

Second, not criticize Palin.

And third is...I would...ummmm...the third thing...is...ummmm...

Perry sure didn’t mind when Sarah Palin came in from out of state to campaign with him in Cypress when it was his sorry butt on the line:

http://www.dallasnews.com/news/politics/state-politics/20100208-Palin-brings-out-crowd-for-Perry-7275.ece

And neither Perry nor RINO Dewhurst seem to mind having help from out of state from Mike Huckabee.

Hypocrisy: Perry, Dewhurst and Bumblestumbler are full of it.

Maybe you should direct some of your anger at Craig James.
He was running against Cruz and now has endorsed Dewhurst.

Rick Perry can go back to being a registered Democrat. That party forgives ANY offense as long as you sport a (D) after your name.

Gov Perry, I love ya man...but what in the heck has knotted up your tighty whiteys over this.

I had numerous robocalls from Mike Huckabee in support of Dewhurst. Did he move to Texas and I missed it?

How do you Texans put up with such a fraud?

Bulletin from Perry's own website (www.rickperry.org) in run for re-election as governor in 2010:

"Governor Sarah Palin endorses Governor Rick Perry" (title & link)

"One of the best Governors in America-- Sarah Palin of Alaska-- has officially endorsed another of America's best Governors-- Rick Perry-- in Texas' 2010 primary race."

"The news underscores the appeal Governor Perry has among both social and fiscal conservatives..."


{Photo from this bulletin}

Well at least he's not posing with the Mexican flag!

You can support Dewhurst without attacking people that had your back when you most need it and you asked for it.

Ouch! lol!

He not only offered it, he signed it, he backed it, he defends it to this day and he attacked conservatives who disagreed with it. He also attacks Tea Party groups who dare support Cruz.

Kinda makes me laugh. I can't recall how many Perry backers argued that he was pro- Tea Party when his actions past and present scream he is not.

You wore that out months ago.

We can disagree with Perry w/o hating him. If you really believe we can't then you must also believe Perry hates Palin and Tea Partiers because he has disagreed with her/them.
