Perry's so bought, he should be forced to wear corporate logos on every suit

I find it sad that the best the Republicans have to offer is Perry and Romney (Paul doesn't count, in my opinion, because he'll never win). Unless the Democrats can pull out another clown in a fancy suit to quickly seduce the masses, Perry will probably end up as the next President. I would just really appreciate it if the rest of the world wouldn't use Texas' pathetic excuse for politicians to judge us Texans. We're really a nice bunch of people.


I don't know if its sad or scary, or a little of both, but I realized the other day that Perry has been governor sine late 2000, when he took over when Bush left to go play President. That terrified me for some reason. I guess it just made me think about everything that happened during Bush's first 2 years. How much worse could Perry's first 2 years be? The very thought makes my mind race, thinking of WWIII (which Perry is enough of a sadist to actually start) and 2012. I think I need to log off and go get me a soda.

That's the funny thing. I'm definitely more left than right, but I'm not an Obama fan. For all I care, he's Bush 2.0 because he kept most of that idiot's policies. Having said that, none of the GOP candidates (or TP candidates, lol) are a better option. Most of them are evangelical religious nutjobs that demonstrably have no clue about economics, aka, the worst thing the US could possibly want right now.

Hell, the TP is bought by big business too, they spent almost $50m in getting GOP candidates elected, yet pretend to be a "grass roots movement"

You guys always get this wrong. I don't care who or what or how many you worship -- I am a very strong believer in the first amendment. I dont care if you don't want to marry someone of the same sex -- I don't care if every time you have sex you spawn a kid (though we are getting a little over populated) I dont care if you drink or don't, I don't care if you wear magic underwear. I dont care if you don't use electricity or you feel that the only godly way to get around is in a buggy. I do care but wont stop you if you teach your kids to hate others and hate themselves. That is all first amendment. I do care if you decide that you should put legislation in place to allow or disallow me from doing any of the above. I do not want to spend anytime waiting for you to ask that I pray with you (though watching a crowd do that is amusing, it is surprising how many people take that opportunity to pick their noses, no ones looking I guess). I don't want you to assail may kids with silly thoughts in schools -- they would only laugh when you got to the jesus rode a dinosaur part -- people really believe that -- really?

So the bottom line is you think that a lot of what I believe is just flat out wrong and I believe that a lot of what you believe is just flat out bizarre. We both live under this government -- so the rule says that the least common denominator is what covers all ideologies and that least common denominator is --- in anything that we are all sharing -- the public space -- we are religion neutral -- I am 1000% good with that. Covers me all my friends of different faiths and lack of faith.

Why do christians keep having to have it all -- isn't enough that I help pay for your churches.

Well someone HAS to be supporting him... cant be all conspiracy theories and magical "NWO" BS.

Someone voted him in as governor...and as the current republican "favorite" its a serious concern. The guy drips and oozes "dirty politician" to me. Hell they all seem so insincere its almost like watching a mid day soap opera.


Love to hear some valid points from some Supporters. On mostly any other day i agree with republican talking points... but the people they use to represent themselves... wow.

Not a supporter here, by any stretch, but:
He definitely has that "nice, clean, guy" thing going for him.
Folks who will never ever hear about cutting fire department funds, and then asking for fed money, or the willingham case or any of the other problems, folks who that GOP guy so adequately called "Low information voters", definitely go for that kind of politician.
I fear he might have a shot.

I don't know anything about the guy. He reminds me of Obama right before the last election. A total mystery.


Nobody listened when Jerome Corsi published a whole book about Obama's mystery affiliations and the Marxism. I am pretty certain were it not for Corsi, we would have known almost nothing of the man. I read Obamanation by the end of August. Since then, we have had proof of his intent to destroy the foundations of this country and facilitate it becoming a full fledged European style socialist country. Whatever else TPTB had or have in store for us is still uncertain, but if Soros has anything to do with it, it's gonna be real bad.
Now we know all about Rev Wright and his Marxist philosophy taken from James Cone's ideas, the Alinsky type organizing, the corruption of ACORN, the Union connections...
Whatever dirt is on Perry, seems nothing compared to what is going on with the Soros puppet. He could be a complete tool or just someone who doesnt know vaccines are horrid. He does seem to have Bilderberg connections, and is going along with the trans corridor highway plan among other things. All the Tea Party type candidates are saying they will repeal Obamacare, but I wonder....

well, on second thought, some people listened to Corsi, that would be the T Partiers....and the rest ignored the warnings.

I would also say that Perry has more executive and business experience than current POTUS. please please get someone in who understands business and free enterprise.

He's a Bohemian Grove and Bilderberg atendee.


He forcefully injected little girls with a sexually transmitted disease vaccination drug produced by a company he had ties to.

He used to be a Democrat but is now a Republican.

He used to praise HilaryCare, but now opposed ObamaCare.

Bank Of America will "help him out":


The MSM loves him.

So for all of those reasons, among many, many others, I hate the guy.

The GOP must do better than Perry if they are going to sway independents and center left voters. Personally, I think his fall will happen just as quick as his sudden rise. The media loves to hate him.

Time to start working on a hybrid prototype for candidacy.
1 cup of Ron Paul, a dash of Bachmann, a pinch of Palin, a light dusting of Herman Cain and a parsley garnish of Romney for that all American political look.


Cheers!! I'm two minutes away from Martini Time or perhaps a dram of Scotch.

Depends on how you define the word "support".

A lot of people "support" a certain candidate because they just lu-u-u-u-v-v-v-v that person without even taking into consideration if this person is even capable of handling the situation at hand.

A lot of people "support" based on sentiment.

I once had a boss that was a down right major A-hole, down to the bone, but he always went above and beyond to get he job done which made him a great manager.
Other co-workers didn't think he was even a good manager because their vision of "good" was clouded by the A-hole factor.

Wow...

Obama might be a whole lot more suck than he said he'd be and has lied and betrayed us; however, saying something so totally blind and desperate...DOING something so blind and desperate usually only puts you in a worse off place...

...and I don't know if you can get much worse than this Perry guy...bought and sold.

The guy is a tool who thinks some 'god' telepathically communicates with him all the time.


When you have a conservative-religious-extremist like him who thinks that there is some 'god' speaking to him, that makes for is an EXTREMELY DANGEROUS individual to have as a President of country like the USA who has a near endless arsenal of weapons of mass-destruction which can bring about an 'end time' scenario or a biblical 'Armageddon' to which would cause a mythical bearded white-guy to come thru the clouds on a white horse to save his good little christian hypocrites and take them to eternal paradise just because they said a little prayer to the mythical man-god...


Conservative religious extremist + war-loving cowboy + President + country owning a near endless arsenal of weapons that can EASILY bring about an end to the world as we know it = UNBELIEVABLY DANGEROUS TO THE ENTIRE GLOBE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not good at all folks...

Rick Perry has no genuine support, he has favorability with the nation because:

1) he is new
2) he is charming
3) he is governor of a state that did well during the American recession

Everybody makes great points here and we all know, deep down, that Perry is as shady as they get.

He wrote an executive order to force HPV inoculations to young girls and guess who paid him to do that? Merke!



Perry's order came after the drug company that manufactured the vaccine hired Mike Toomey, his former chief of staff, as one of the firm's top lobbyists in Austin.
Toomey, who is now running the main "super pac" backing Perry's candidacy, was retained by pharmaceutical giant Merck & Co., maker of the Gardasil vaccine, which is designed to prevent the human papillomavirus, or HPV, an infection linked to cervical cancer in women.

His hiring was part of an aggressive lobbying push in Texas by the drug company, which also donated $16,000 to Perry's gubernatorial campaigns in the two and a half years prior to the executive order. Merck paid Toomey between $260,000 and $535,000 in lobbying fees between 2005 and 2010, according to state lobbying records.
Although Perry's GOP foes never brought up the connection during the debate, Democratic political operatives and a public watchdog group said Thursday his association with Merck is likely to be emerge as a prime example of Perry's "crony capitalism," should he win the GOP nomination.

Jesus Christ! If people would quit buying into the MSM's lies about how unelectable Dr. Paul is, and actually pay attention to the large amount of success he is having... if people would decide instead of following the crowd that they'll stand up and be active based on PRINCIPLE - Ron Paul could easily win. I'm so sick of people buying into that crap.

He doesn't count because he'll never win? He is consistently in the TOP 3! That is TOP TIER! People, spend some time looking at all the polls he is winning. And instead of letting the MSM choose your candidate, be determined to fight for America.

There is enough dirt on both Perry and Romney that we could easily fill in the Grand Canyon. I refuse to consider either of them as electable. I'll write Ron Paul's name in before I'll ever support either of those douche bags!

I believe you would be hard-pressed to find anyone on ATS (living in TX) that supports Perry. In my opinion, that speaks volumes. Those of us that are most familiar with Perry know better than to throw support his way. Honestly, he is a dumbed down version of GWB.

You may know that Perry was not evangelical (he was a regular Methodist) nor even a democrat until Karl Rove got to him when he was a state official and encouraged him to change parties and personas. In other words, he is a total fiction and a rampant crony corporatist. Check out how many of his buddies recieved state contracts. Remember in the debate the bit about him forcing vaccinations on girls for cervical cancer? I wish the moderators or other candidates would have pointed out that it was his buddy's company that made the vaccines. He is a rank criminal who hates the Constitution in real practice.

The media wants him because Obama can beat him. Perry rose to prominence as a democrat and a Methodist. He became a Republican and evangelical only after Rove convinced hom to change. I would vote for Huntsman over Obama any day, but the Right is intimitated by intelligence so it rewards ignorance...that's where they are most comfortable. So the Right (today's Right) will ALWAYS support the intellectually more stupid. They think that is a badge of honor...hey, he's as dumb as I am, I love him (or her)!

Anybody with an education and the ability to think critically is by default NOT fit to represent the Right politically. It is ironic because my guess as parents they'd be proud to have kids who graduate with honors from credible universities.
