Why I don’t support Rick Perry

January 8, 2012
By

Rush Limbaugh and Red State think the conservative rap on Perry is that he’s stupid. But that’s not it.

I was excited about Perry’s candidacy, until I realized he’s a strong supporter of illegal immigration.

Perry on a fence: “Idiocy.”

Perry on E-Verify: “Would not make a hill of beans’ difference.”

Perry to opponents of in-state tuition for illegal aliens: “I don’t think you have a heart.”

Voting for Perry would be like voting for the president. Of Mexico.

The day after Perry’s “heartless” comment, Herman Cain won the Florida straw poll that was Perry’s to lose. And Perry’s campaign was all but over.

Another exciting candidacy destroyed by illegal immigration. Sigh.

    Could not agree more. Yet the media, even right media misses this.
    Inexplicable.

    Huh?

    You think this, but you’re gleeful about Willard, the architect of ObomneyCare… a travesty that’s stealing our liberty and turning us into European socialists…. oh and bankrupting us by the way?

    And the real stupidity of this is that Willard is gonna come out for amnesty about 3 seconds after he’s nominated. This lying crapweasel has already approved Obambi’s tax policy, and all associated class warfare. This after agreeing with Obambi on Bailouts, global warmingism, Porkulus and about everything else Obambi loves.

    Why don’t you just vote for Obambi and get it over with?

    Rush is a drug addict. He also probably wants Obama reelected,as it is better for his show.
    Erickson is a pos.

    For every 1 reason you give for not supporting Perry I can give you a hundred why I will not vote for Mitt….He is NOT a conservative and anyone who agrees with him I would have to reconsider if they are a conservative.

    Perry will appoint conservative judges and who knows how many SCOTUS will resign Mitt will set conservativism back as he will run as a conservative but govern as a progressive.

    How conservative is Perry? Is instate tuition for illegals conservative? Madating the HPV vaccine(hey I thought health mandates were bad). Calling people who disagree with him heartless? That’s conservative?
    If he wasn’t from Texas he would not be considered any great conservative.

    Erick Erickson and Redstate sell their conservative pundit status as anti-establishment “extreme” right wing.

    Actually I don’t think they care who wins, but they can’t be seen promoting Romney because would break their cover as party hacks.

    Rick Perry is a national joke, an effeminate lisper, and utterly brain dead.

    I cannot imagine what the PHUQUE Rush thinks he’s good for.

    Limbaugh always talked about how the GOP bigs used to show up at his place and try to bring him around to support of amnesty.

    Looks like they’ve succeeded if old Rush is backing Perry. Rush, it might be time to hang it up, if Perry is your guy. Ditto Newt.

    Now, Poli, some of us have known Rick Perry was WORTHLESS well before he ran for POTUS.

    What’s your excuse?

  14. rightwingyahoo on January 8, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    Steve, why don’t you just post as yourself, and do a mea culpa on your support of Cain?

    Same with Ken PhD.. come on back, just admit the guy was a joke, and move on……

    Perry’s “Mandate” on HPV was optional; parents could opt out. The “mandate” part was done so insurance would cover it. I’m sure as hell no fan of mandates in any form, but my only fault with Perry on that is he backtracked on the issue. I think it was good policy, but I’m a bit biased due to being anti-cancer. YYMV.

    That said, I was quite interested in Perry until his “don’t have a heart” remark, and his later comments regarding everify, etc. I do think his immigration stance torpedoed him, as well as highlighted the fact he’s a bit of a dim bulb: that ‘don’t have a heart” jab was the kind of BS we get from the left, so it pissed off a lot of people: the very people he needed. A very stupid move.

    I’m not fond of anyone in the race (I’m undecided as to which one I dislike least and will thus vote for in the AZ primary, and I’ll vote for the R in November, no matter what), so I’m not shilling for anyone, but I can say this: it’s spot-on that Perry blew up his campaign on this issue, and made me switch from being a supporter to considering him someone I can’t support.

    Not to worry. I have been enjoying the Holidays.

    I admit I was initially for Cain and subsequently for Bachmann since I was looking for an uncorrupted fresh face, but I am now 0 for 2 (not a very good batting average).

    I am now considering switching my support to Ron Paul. Although I have some basic discomfort with Ron’s military views of the world, I don’t consider him a Peacenik or pacifist. More importantly for me is our present headlong rush into a fiscal Armaggedon. I suspect we are soon reaching a point of no return. This country cannot stand another 4 years of trillion dollar deficits.

    I simply do not see another candidate who will attack the out of control spending.

    BINGO!

    Even if Paul is elected, there is a risk of him not being able to get much done since we still have a lot of big gov’t RINO’s in Congress (though at least he’ll get something done, unlike the other GOP candidates who either think the status quo is fine or don’t have a clue about what to do …. or be like Romney and just try to ‘manage’ the situation rather than lead with drastic spending cuts). It will also require the American public to also ‘clean house’ in Congress of big gov’t status quo backers (both RINO’s and big-govt Liberals) in 2012 and 2014. We need to look at the list of those Congressmen/women up for re-election in 2012 and get our knives ready for those undeserving of the public’s trust. Anyone whos supported the big gov’t status quo agenda needs to be sent home.

    Part of being conservative is to be realistic, and support some idealistic view of the world. We currently do not have a fully functioning immigration scheme that Perry wants to dismantle. No, he has said very forcefully that he will secure the border.
    Romney has said timidly that he is against amnesty and then combines it with he is talking to Jeb Bush and Lindsey Graham. And he is from the Wall Street Journal wing of the party, that routinely publishes editorials on opening the border.
    I think Perry would do more on the issue of illegal immigration than Romney. E-Verify is pointless if you don’t have an administration willing to back it, as I think Romney would not. You could do most of what EVerify does without requiring it. EVerify is used for new employees. The government already sends out nomatch letters for ALL employees. Pres Bush Admin tried to essentially do what EVerify does, but for all employees, but it was blocked by a federal judge.

    sorry, after his advocacy of giving illegals in state tuition at the expense of the taxpayer, Perry can’t be trusted with his newfound “tough talk” on illegal immigration.

  23. Chicago Conservative on January 9, 2012 at 10:27 am

    Romney DID veto the Deam Act. Hick Perry,in a conservative state,signed it.
