Aren't both them leaning towards the right? I don't think Obama has tried one truly democratic policy.

LongRifle

After spending the week doing research, I have come to the conclusion that President George W. Bush did more to destroy Freedom of religion, Freedom and privacy of citizens, and the US Constitution itself than all other Presidenets combined.

Feel free to disagree, call names, whatever...

Bush did increase Government more than most. He and Reagan.

Conclusion: All eyes will be on Romney and Perry in coming debates. They are both, unlike "Obama the Undertaker," pro-business. Romney still has to do libwork, i.e. try to deflate the "Texas boom" and/or Perry's role in it. Perry has to make clear what a double-dealing flip-flopper Corporate Charley is Mitt Romneycare. Romney must try to show that Romneycare was not an inspiration for Ombamanationcare. Perry has to keep him from getting away with that.

Perry, his track record in Texas is more government jobs and in the private sector. Minimum wage jobs. Only Mississippi has a greater percentage of minimum wage workers.

And, "flip-flop" Romney?
Last time he ran, he kept changing his viewpoints to fit the audience . In his state, he's known as a job killer.

SCORE EXCLUSIVE – TRUMP TALKING WITH PERRY: Rick Perry has been speaking with Donald Trump by phone since wading into the presidential race, a Trump representative told Morning Score. Michael Cohen, the New York businessman’s special counsel, said the Texas governor has called on “several occasions.” Someone else familiar with the dialogue said Perry has spoken to Trump three times, adding that Perry's daughter got on the phone during a recent chat. Perry spokesman Mark Miner said he would not discuss “the Governor's private conversations.”

Gringoman,

Been doing a bit of thinking and came to some preliminary conclusions. I'll back Perry despite his god awful stance on the immigration issues. He is not my first choice to say the least. Out of all the candidates currently in the field, Bachmann comes closest to what I want in a candidate. But I'm a realist. I know Bachmann dosen't have what it takes to overcome the SLIME onslaught that confronts her. That said, if Sarah Palin enters the race, I will back her to the hilt. I think she is by far the best prescription for what ails America. She is the best qualified to us out of the liberal malaise that has been hanging over our once proud nation like a thick layer of toxic smog ever since the later half of Bush the elder's presidency. I truly beleive Sarah Palin - and only Sarah Palin - can restore all the positives Ronald Reagan engendered in the American people.

Posted by: DJ | August 25, 2011 at 08:13 AM

DJ,

Welcome to the word of realpolitik, How the Perry-Palin phenomenon will work out, and who runs as Numero Uno, remains to be seen. (I suspect that Perry will be the driver, and Sarah will ride shot gun, We'll see. And for the slow learners, "riding shot gun" does not necessarily mean she'd run as Perry's VP.)

BTW, the Gringo Advisory Board has not yet endorsed Perry. I don't think he has nothing to answer for in the areas of Illegalismo and Sharia penetration of the US. He does have some things to answer for, and I would advise supporters to get answers from him. As for his record as Governor and the Texas economy, my reading indicates that it's pretty strong, not perfect, and the Slimebots will fail to tarnish him there. They'll just work overtime trying, as with their cut and paste "stats" and factoids they like to litter websites with. I've seen a very meticulous statistician take apart every one of their current factoids about Texas' "poor" economy etc. These imbeciles are stupid enough to try to rank Texas with a socialist basket case like CA, as if everybody doesn't know that people are fleeing CA for Texas, not the other way around.

Conclusion: I suspect that Perry and Palin will work something out. That "something," whatever it is, will so frighten Libworld and its crypto-commie garbage detail, that they will lash out in near hysterics. A major entertainment will be the sight of their crony capitalist/socialist heads exploding. Problem for them doing Rage Boy again: Sarah Palin's been there, taken that. She has taken the full brunt for two years, probably like no other public figure in US history, with its vast record of how to slime your opponent. The result: Mama Grizzly is still standing and ready for them. Perry probably is ready for them too, being a real Texan in a way that the New England Ivy League elitenik Booshes never ever were (as the Happy Few know by now, while the slimies stupidly try to portray Perry as Bush II) But in case Perry needs a little help as the slimies unload, who better to have his back than Sarah Palin?

No To Ron Paul-

Attention Ron Paul: Iran wants nukes for offensive, not defensive purposes. How can even one true American support any candidate who denies the historic and contemporary evidence of creeping Sharia and global jihad? Especially as we approach the tenth anniversiry of 9/11?

Any “religion” with an expressed goal to establish a theocracy is not a religion but a political group with a political agenda disguised as a religion, and as such is not protected by the First Amendment. In fact, the very tenents of Islam completely contradict the First Amendment.

That ONLY “the great Ron Paul” can save our country and restore America to a Constitutional Republic is pure folly, plain and simple. That there are people who so adamantly and passionately believe that ONLY “the great Ron Paul” can save us is strong, clear evidence of personality cult disorder.

WE THE PEOPLE are the ones who will save America and restore our Constitutional Republic, not ANY elected official, including “the great Ron Paul”.

Ron Paul’s electoral record is this: He’s been re-elected to Congress a number of times. His more ambitious moves like running for the GOP nomination have been met with repeated, resounding rejection by GOP voters. He even ran as a Libertarian candidate in a general election. How many Electoral College votes has Ron Paul won in his lifetime?

America’s voting motto should be: The more the fringe leftist media protests about a candidate, the more we should vote for that person. And you’ll notice the fringe leftist media are not NOT protesting about Ron Paul…

The LAST thing this world, much less this country, needs is another personality cult hero in the White House who’s OK with Islam and jihadists.

I expect to post more on Kinky and Perry. Had it days ago but haven't gotten around to posting. Heard the Kinky-Imus interview and was surprised at how pro-Perry the very sophisticated Texas Jew Kinky Friedman was. He ran against Perry for Texas Governor. Imus was getting ready to mock Perry. Old friend Kinky stopped him in his tracks. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Imus starts backing Perry before too long, and he mocks the hell out of Bush, Obama, and Sarah Palin.

Also from Politico:

Rick Perry doesn’t speak for all military

Texas Gov. Rick Perry recently asserted in Iowa that one reason he entered the GOP presidential race is to “make sure that every young man and woman who puts on the uniform of the United States respects highly the president of the United States.” He was clearly implying that our current commander in chief does not have, or deserve, this respect from our active duty, reserve and veteran military community.

As a veteran of two Iraq tours of duty, I was stunned to hear Perry – the latest GOP candidate claiming to speak on my behalf – say that the military does not respect President Barack Obama because he had never served in the military. He is mistaken


Aside from a professional respect due to the office of the president, no matter who holds it, what Perry fails to recognize is that military service is not the only national service that matters.

I did not lead a platoon in Baghdad just so the United States could continue to have a military. The U.S. military does not exist for its own sake. It exists to protect and promote American interests and values — one of many tools used to do so. For there are many ways that Americans can serve their country

Mrs Higgebnottom said ,"I agree." All her unemployed friends got jobs at fast food places.
6 year old Tommy said," Daddy, what's a state job"?
Dad replies, "Those are the only decent paying jobs perry is able to find for people.

10 year old Alice said,"Mommy, why does Perry object to stimulus money. But, takes credit for when it helps the state?
Her mother replied,"That's Republican Hyopcrisy, my dear."

Gov. Rick Perry's big donors fare well in Texas


Many of the GOP presidential candidate's mega-donors have won hefty contracts or appointments. Perry's aides vigorously dispute that any got special perks.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry campaigns in Iowa for the Republican presidential… (Chip Somodevilla, Getty Images)

August 16, 2011|By Matea Gold and Melanie Mason, Washington Bureau


Texas Gov. Rick Perry has powered his political career on the largesse of donors like Dallas billionaire Harold Simmons, who gave the governor $1.12 million in recent years.

And donors like Simmons have found the rewards to be mutual, reaping benefits from Texas during Perry's tenure.

Perry has received a total of $37 million over the last decade from just 150 individuals and couples, who are likely to form the backbone of his new effort to win the Republican presidential nomination. The tally represented more than a third of the $102 million he had raised as governor through December, according to data compiled by the watchdog group Texans for Public Justice.

During the last debate amongst the Republican candidates, when Ron Paul said he didn't have a problem with Iran nuking up, Rick Santorum's head almost exploded. He went apoplectic whilst expressing his disagreement with Paul.'Twas quite a show. Anyway, either Paul is profoundly right on Iran, or he is profoundly wrong. Incidentally, Pat Buchanan is in accord with Paul on that particular issue.

Dr. Simon Atkins CEO, Advanced Forecasting Corporation [AFC]
August 26, 2011
The hype over Hurricane Irene is overblown, predicts the CEO of Advanced Forecasting Corporation.

"North of Delaware, most hurricane force winds will very likely be gusts, not sustained winds."

o The demise of Irene has already begun. There is no visible eye. The storm intensity is down to 99 mph. This would be a low-end category 2 or a strong category 1 storm, while 36 hours ago some predicted a catastrophic category 4 storm. Air Force Reserve aircraft have found that Irene's eyewall has collapsed, and the central pressure has risen -- rising pressure means a weakening storm.

o The reduction in storm intensity likely confirms that this storm is not going to be as monstrous as it has been publicly forecast to be.

o Yes, it will be windy. However, north of Delaware most hurricane force winds will very likely be gusts, not sustained winds.

gringoNOTE: This may all be so, but even so, there is still 50-50 chance of power outage in Manhattan tomorrow---at least lower Manhattan. Sea at high tide. Salt water could wreak havoc on generators etc. The major provider, CON ED, has a decision to make. Should it shut down in order to safeguard the machinery and underground cables against the probability of flooding? Flooding would bollox up mass transit too, and affect whether businesses, like Wall Street, can open on Monday. All mass transit shuts down noon Saturday. The places where subway trains are "parked" are all in very low-laying areas. These would be vulnerable to any significant flooding. Conclusion: Even with fairly mild semi-hurricane, there could still be a big mess.

DJ,

I'm beginning to see Perry---despite some flaws that need questioning---about as real as the deal is going to get.

For now, just take a look at who are his friends, and who his enemies, especially who it is that are desperately trying to churn out the "gotcha" factoids, the "gotcha" military guy who prefers Obama (really) the "gotcha" baby without Obamacare, the "gotcha" low-paying job.

As the socialists do their frenzied "gotcha" vetting of Perry, everybody else notices how the productive are fleeing the Democrat basket case the "caring" socialists have made of once golden California, and they are heading for Texas. Poor socialists. They can't even make a single factoid showing how people are fleeing Texas for today's fiscal disaster in California. Apparently they are not listening to the socialists and their cut n'paste about how awful Texas is.

Anyone for Perry probably wants more of this Perry-bashing from the leftniki. They know that most of it will tend to have the opposite effect, pushing undecideds toward Perry. If the lib slimebots are against him! (And it does cover up some questions about Perry, since the Marxobots don't mind flooding the US with illegalismo and sharia.) Maybe Perry's rich backers can get them to do even more than the Democrat billionaires want done? And since they like to babble about the Koch Brothers, maybe they can be encouraged to do a poll: Who do you prefer--The Koch Brothers or George Soros?

Think Koched-up pogwessives would ever run a poll like that?

IRENE

Hitting the mainland. As seen by NASA

http://www.space.com/12756-hurricane-irene-nasa-space-centers-east-coast.html

gringoNOTE: Whether or not you consider Hurrican Irene over-hyped, certain facts remain irrefudiable:

1. Broadway theaters shutting down Sat night

2. All NYC mass transit shut down Sat noon (first time ever)

3. Shopper lines wind around the whole supermarket

4. Sea is at high tide.

5. Direction of Irene takes it right smack into NYC

Some variables

A. Different experts forecast different intensity of winds, some even pooh-pooh it as hurricane strength.

B. Even winds well under 100 mph will be felt very strongly in NY "canyons" and around high-rises.

C. Just about everyone expects a huge amount of rain to fall over extended period, 24 hours or so. August already has been unusually wet. Soil around trees already softened. But downed trees and broken windows etc will be minor damage compared to flooding. There's a real possibility that NYC will see the kind of flooding not seen here in a hundred years, mainly in low-laying areas, like lower Manhattan. How this will affect the mass transit system, already shut down, or the subway cars stored in low-laying areas, remains to be seen. Without mass transit, NYC, unlike many other cities, is at least semi-immobilized. The people who have jobs can't get to them. High probablity that CON ED will shut off the power, to protect its generators etc from being corroded to hell by sea water. (This will depend on whether sub stations and equipment are in danger of being flooded)

South Jersey, Long Island likely to see big flooding.

SLIMEwatch (Socialist Liberal Media)

8/26/2011
Did an Editor of a Major Newspaper Threaten to “Crush” Rick Perry?

Patterico

Via Hot Air Headlines, a fellow named Douglas MacKinnon says:

With exactly that mission in mind, an editor of a major newspaper told me: “We plan to declare war on Rick Perry and do all in our power to crush him.”

There you have it. No pretense of integrity, professionalism or of unbiased news-gathering. This particular newspaper plans to use its very considerable resources to destroy the Perry campaign before it gains momentum. Period.

This is a very serious allegation. While it is easy to believe that a Big Media editor might say something like that to someone s/he trusted, it seems to me that if this quote is accurate, we should be told who the editor is. Or, at the very least, shouldn’t Mr. MacKinnon explain why he is not telling us?

Gringoman,

It's not only leftoids and Goopers that are criticizing Perry, MANY on the right are doing so.

--

"He [Rick Santorum] criticized Perry and former President George W. Bush for what he called lax immigration laws. Texas has the second-highest number of illegal immigrants in the country, according to Pew. Someone asked if he would “smoke” Perry out for his immigration stances, Santorum said he’d hear a lot about it.

“We know unfortunately the history of governors in Texas on the issue of immigration,” the former Pennsylvania senator said, adding, “I understand being governor of Texas is a tough thing. But you’ve got to stand up and defend -- being a senator from Pennsylvania is a tough thing. But you’ve got to stand up and defend your record.”


---

I maintain it's still way too early to jump on the Perry bandwagon.
