Full title: Perry: "I Don't Think You Have a Heart" If You Oppose In-State Tuition for Children of Illegal Immigrants
Perry's response was forceful and personal. "I don't think you have a heart," Perry told his critics.
"If you say that we should not educate children who come into our state for no other reason than that they've been brought their through no fault of their own, I don't think you have a heart," Perry said. "We need to be educating these children because they will become a drag on our society. I think that's what Texans wanted to do. Out of 181 members of the Texas legislature when this issue came up [there were] only four dissenting votes. This was a state issue. Texas voted on it. And I still support it today."

It’s becoming more & more obvious that Perry doesn’t have a BRAIN.
Perry’s done. Palin is the only person who can save us from Romney now.
They and their parents are a drag on our society -- a taxpayer money pit. Cut off the welfare freebies, secure the border, and deport.
W all over again, no thank you. It’s Palin for me.
PerryBots...tell me how I'm wrong.
Well, Perry is completely off my list now. He’s down there with Myth.
I’m sick of giving Illegal aliens breaks, of any kind especially when the kids crowd out the schools for Americans and when illegals don’t pay taxes.
By Perry, Next...
Exactly...! I cannot wait to NOT vote for Romney..!
I will take NO chance —none— on voting for something who turns out to be even 10% RINO.
Perry = Obama Lite
Romney = Obama with a slightly smaller head
The essence of conservatism is to do what’s right, not what feels good. The essence of liberalism is to do what feels good, whether it’s right or wrong.
Sounds nauseatingly like Jorge Busho’s “compassionate conservativism.” If Perry’s the nominee, or any other RINO who favors forfeiting our nation to third worlders, I think I’m going to sit the next election out.
Bush accused people that I respect of being vigilantes.
McCain acused my countrymen of being too lazy to pick lettuce for $50.
Now Perry says that I have no heart.
You no what Perry no longer has? My support for the nomination. Screw him.
Someone needs to tell Perry they already ARE a drag on our society.
If that doesn’t prove what many of us have said all along, than there’s no hope... That said, get ready for the onslaught of Perry supporters telling us we are all nuts, he won the debate and so forth.
He is NO conservative and tonight’s performance proved it.
Perry ain’t the savior.
Romney ain’t the Devil.
Accusing Conservatives of not having a heart will not take Gov Perry very far in my view.
Isn’t that also what Pelosi says? If you don’t give illegals a home, healthcare, college, foodstamps and loans ‘you have no heart’...
Romney aint the Devil.
Well, at least you're half right.
