Rick Perry announces he will join 2012 presidential field to challenge President Obama


www.washingtonpost.com

CHARLESTON, S.C.-Declaring that it is“time to get America working again,” Gov. Rick Perry officially declared his presidential candidacy Saturday, telling a crowd in this key primary state that he will run to challenge President Obama in 2012. In front of a crowd of 600 at the Francis Marion Hotel, Perry used his first speech as a candidate to brag about job creation in Texas under his leadership and argued he could dramatically improve the American economy if elected president.

There is your next President America.

That or another 4 years of Obama.

If I was American I would not want either.

One is a failure and a ditherer whilst the other belongs to a Christian cult. The very same cult that gave us the likes of child sex offender Todd Bentley and the Kansas city prophets (:lol


Before any of you vote for Perry I advise you to look into the above organisations with urgency!

Dont take my word for it, do your own research.

God help America

You are damned if you do, damned if you dont!

This will be our next President.

Now it's official...

If it's possible to make the Republicans look weaker.

This used car salesman brings a pathetically weak record.

Ugh. He's been horrible for Texas, but he keeps coming back. Our air quality has gotten worse, education system is a shambles, and the economy isn't good in spite of the rosy little chirps everyone says about jobs here. And (I know this isn't a reason to vote against him) he's not a very kind (or nice) person. In some ways, he's very similar to Lyndon B. Johnson...but I liked Lyndon better.

The one positive thing I can say about him is that he doesn't go on vacation as often as Bush used to.

Regarding this announcement:

The good news: He probably won't be my governor anymore.

The bad news: he just might get enough crazies to vote for him that he becomes the next destroyer of the USA.

There is no need for me to go into the reasons to NOT vote for this clown...there is a really good thread laying out the reasoning here: www.abovetopsecret.com...

I surely hope that those that dislike Obama don't rush to judgement and vote for Perry solely because he is NOT Obama. Obama may be bad to many, but perry would be worse....Obama is still the lesser of the evils.

"Democracy is four wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch."
— Ambrose Bierce

It seems that no matter what, "They" put into play "Their" best puppets so voting is more like a chance on getting to choose which person you want to pick your pocket. And if "they" as a consensus, I mean both sides of the respective "two" party fence, don't like the way we vote, "they" have shifted things to get the proper outcome, in any election you can tell who the obligatory runners are and who is supposed to win, any arguments? Our Nation and it's people are like any other we love our country, but as every other citizen of the world can boast their politicians are just as shifty and dirty as ours. Some don't get to choose, and our government decided hey why not lets just keep the boxes and put on a show... Everyone else is doing it..or everyone else took a cur from our politicians its all a little muddled now. I hate politicians....

There are several things that could be stated:
Hopefully he will not make promises that are so grand, that they are not possible to keep, speaks for all of the population and understands the mess he is going to take over if he wins the election.

Crooked bastard is gonna try and sweep in like he's the reason Texas has jobs...If you count a job at Mc-E-Dee's as a job...or Wally World...or KentuckyFriedCrap...etc...

Let's shine some light on Perry!

#1 Rick Perry actually issued an executive order in 2007 that would have forced almost every single girl in the state of Texas to receive the Gardasil vaccine before entering the sixth grade. Perry would have put parents in a position where they would have had to fill out an application and beg the government not to inject their child with a highly controversial vaccine. Since then, very serious safety issues regarding this vaccine have come to light. Fortunately, lawmakers in Texas blocked what Perry was trying to do. According to Wikipedia, many were troubled when "apparent financial connections between Merck and Perry were reported by news outlets, such as a $6,000 campaign contribution and Merck's hiring of former Perry Chief of Staff Mike Toomey to handle its Texas lobbying work."

#2 The total debt of the Texas government has more than doubled since Rick Perry became governor. So what would the U.S. national debt look like after four (or eight) years of Rick Perry?

#3 Rick Perry has spearheaded the effort to lease roads in Texas to foreign companies, to turn roads that are already free to drive on into toll roads, and to develop the Trans-Texas Corridor which would be part of the planned NAFTA superhighway system. If you really do deep research on this whole Trans-Texas Corridor nonsense you will see why no American should ever cast a single vote for Rick Perry.

#4 Rick Perry claims that he has a "track record" of not raising taxes. That is a false claim. Rick Perry has repeatedly raised taxes and fees while he has been governor. Today, Texans are faced with significantly higher taxes and fees than they were before Rick Perry was elected.

#5 Even with the oil boom in Texas, 23 states have a lower unemployment rate than Texas does.

#6 Back in 1988, Rick Perry supported Al Gore for president. In fact, Rick Perry actually served as Al Gore's campaign chairman in the state of Texas that year.

#7 Between December 2007 and April 2011, weekly wages in the U.S. increased by about 5 percent. In the state of Texas they increased by just 0.6% over that same time period.

#8 Rick Perry attended the Bilderberg Group meetings in 2007. Associating himself with that organization should be a red flag for all American voters.

#9 Texas has the highest percentage of workers making minimum wage out of all 50 states.

#10 Rick Perry often gives speeches about illegal immigration, but when you look at the facts, he has been incredibly soft on the issue. If Rick Perry does not plan to secure the border, then he should not be president because illegal immigration is absolutely devastating many areas of the southwest United States.

#11 In 2007, 221,000 residents of Texas were making minimum wage or less. By 2010, that number had risen to 550,000.

#12 Rick Perry is a "big government" politician. When Rick Perry became the governor of Texas in 2000, the total spending by the Texas state government was approximately $49 billion. Ten years later it was approximately $90 billion. That is not exactly reducing the size of government.

I still will not vote any mainstream candidates anymore.
I'm liking Ron Paul more and more. I can't stand Romney. He's the cliche standard. Out with the establishment which hasn't been listening to its' people.

Ron Paul is getting my vote...pretty sure he's going to get out shouted by the media though...and unfortunately, when it comes to the masses - if it's not in their face on the hypnotube they don't care.
Yay for the 2 party system -the prequel to the 3rd world America!

I am a constitutionalist, and while I don't know enough about Rick Perry to vote for him as opposed to Ron Paul, he seems to respect the 2nd amendment and understand its purpose (to prevent government from enacting laws which restrict the ability of the people to defend themselves via force against a tyrannical government). That is one redeeming quality.

Yes, that's exactly right!

Trust me, Rick perry has more skeletons in his closet than the best stocked anatomy lab. I'm kind of surprised he put himself out there for scrutiny...he won't last long before his character is destroyed and his dirty, dark secrets are revealed.

Your last point, about increasing spending from 49 to 90 billion is irrelevant when not considering the spending of the rest of the states.

Even though spending increased, it may have not increased to the degree that other states have, which when taken in context with the devaluation of the dollar and the world economy, COULD translate to less money being wasted in his state.

Just something to consider.

As I stated in another thread, Ron Paul can say as many slogans and right on sound bites as he likes, but being elected is another matter.

Here in the UK the LibDems said virtually the same things as Ron Paul because they did not expect to be in government. But they suddenly found themselves in government after the last election and found out very quickly that slogans and soundbites dont work in the real world.

I dont doubt that Dr Paul is a man of integrity, but I also dont doubt that he would be the most impotent president ever with both sides of the house against him.

America needs a new system of government or you will forever have corporate shills put on you. Same here in England.
