Right on. We need this man as President. But I will still be critical when I
feel it is deserved.
It seems there is a lot about Perry we didn't know before. I haven't verified
some of the things said in the debate myself, but it seems like he is not nearly
as conservative as he would like us all to think. It was quite the site
watching him squirm last night throughout most of the debate.
All politicians have always "talked the talk" yet very few have
"walked the walk". All Romney did was show he's all in to get
elected. How he would govern is anybodies guess. Unfortunately now more than
ever this country needs strong leadership and none of the republican field has
proven they are fit to lead.
Article quote: "Our taxes have doubled since he's been in office. Our
spending has gone up double. Our debt has gone up nearly triple," (Ron)
Paul said of Perry's decade as governor."Agreed; maybe Perry is
not the conservative he makes himself out to be.That would be tough
to hide from those facts.
buckbeaver:and o is? dream on. Romney has forgotten more about the economy
than o has ever known. o to go, sooner is better.
to buckbeaver, (who said of Romney, "how he would govern is anybodies
guess"), just look at the man's own life. He is pro-life, pro-family, has
shown great compassion for others, loves this great country, has executive
experience with a track record at the Olympics, in Mass...is very understanding
of economics, works very hard, finishes what he starts. I believe he would work
very hard to lead this country in these trying times, you won't find him golfing
every other weekend...he would be a great President.
Romney took too long to get aggressive on Perry. This type of slow indecision
makes him look bad and weak. H needs to hammer Perry as a tax and spend Texan
who like the GW Bush spent 6 trillion dollars of money we don't have.Come on Mitt, grow a spine.
I just listed to a focus group of Republican voters on Fox....all of them,
unanimously, preferred Perry to Romney in last night's debate. They feel that
Perry is sincere. They felt that Romney was "too political" and a
phony.I wonder if they are right?
"Pragmatic | 7:42 p.m. Sept. 13, 2011 Salt Lake City, UTI just
listed to a focus group of Republican voters on Fox....all of them, unanimously,
preferred Perry to Romney in last night's debate. They feel that Perry is
sincere. They felt that Romney was "too political" and a phony.I wonder if they are right?"The last time we voted in a
folksy "sincere" college cheerleader from Texas he spent 6 TRILLION
dollars of money we didn't have, these Fox Republicans better not get duped
again.Remember GW Bush said he was for "smaller
government"? GW Bush oversaw the largest government expansion since the
Great Depression.Perry is the PHONY, he talks tough, talks
succession but laps up the 17 billion in stimulus funds.
From what I've learned of Perry, he'd be at least as bad, if nor worse, than
Obama. Instead of a left wing tyrant, he'd be a right wing tyrant. He's self
righteous, conceited and believes he knows more than everyone else.
Can anyone honestly tell me that whoever is elected into office is going to be
able to change anything in Washington. I think not. The House and the Senate
will stop any efforts made by the President to improve or change the direction
our country is headed. Yes, this newly elected president may be sincer, honest,
and have a great plan to increase jobs, get our economy going in the right
direction, secure the futures of the elderly, and the young, but none of that
matters, because of the party politics that both sides will play. Nothing will
get accomplished. Both sides are only concerned about their individuals party's
agendas and not what is best for this country. All I can say is good luck to who
ever is elected. Your going to need it.
If Romney gets the Republican nomination, Obama's gone. Middle America would
have someone that's not leaning to far either way.If Perry gets the
nomination, the election's outcome would be 50-50 because middle America would
have two extremists to choose from.Hope the Pubs get it right.
Words of wisdom about socialism & big government:"I contend
that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in
a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle." [Winston Churchill]
Talk about trying to pick yourself up!"A government which robs
Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul." [George
Bernard Shaw] Whooosh! Did this just go over a liberal's head?"The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the blessings.
The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of misery."
[Winston Churchill] And, it's being widely reported that mental illness (not the
genetic or birth defect kind) is the main health issue in today's Europe; one
out of three have it. Churchill's a prophet!"A government big
enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you
have." [Thomas Jefferson] And Obama's making sure of that. Another half
trillion to do what? Rob Peter to pay Paul? Whooosh!G'nite!

the Republican nomination Obama's gone. The magic that worked for Obama in
Chicago just isn't cutting it on the national stage.
Let's imagine what Romney would do as president:Dismantle the
military and "out-source" it using cheaper labor (India, Mexico,
China).Dismantle the CIA and "out-source" it using cheaper
labor (Pakistan, Egypt, Turkey)Dismantle the ...Just
like he did to the companies he bought when at Bain.
