Rick Perry. So hot right now.
Washington Post, by Aaron Blake

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/18/2014 2:28:39 PM

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) is still something of a punchline after his disastrous 2012 presidential campaign. As he prepares to run again in 2016, there´s nowhere to go but up. Which is precisely where he appears to be going. In the national spotlight again because of the crisis on the southern border, Perry seems to be working his way into GOP voters´ favor again. Witness two new polls this week. The first poll, from NBC News and Marist College, showed Perry right up there with the frontrunners in Iowa, pulling 7 percent of the vote. He was also the second choice of

There are a lot of closet Perry fans on Lucianne.com. I know, because they write to me. This is for them. And for me. And for the Governor.

As a conservative and a Texan.... please no. Check this, when Perry ran for president last time, he had only a 42% approval rating in Texas. That is in a state that´s at leas 60% republican. Yes he would be better than Obama or any democrat, but Ted Cruz has more conviction and skill. And...he talks just like W!

At least he will flame out soon with this much oxygen.

Clarification: Perry sounds just like W. Pattern of speech. W. was better than Obama, but someone that sounds just like GWB is not going to get elected.

I´m a fan of Perry. I think if decides to run and is prepared this time he´ll be the next President. Immigration and the border are going to be a bigger issue than Obamacare. So will jobs. Those are Perry´s issues. People talk about Romney running again because of the money he could raise. Perry could raise just as much, maybe even more.

I don´t dislike Perry. I do remember, however, how his supporters undermined Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain in the 2012 primaries. I understand that politics "ain´t" bean bag, but am yet to be convinced that Perry is the right man for 2016.

That said: his supporters can enjoy the "tingle" for now.

#7, everyone undermines everyone in a political campaign. Mike Huckabee´s supporters were actively undercutting Romney, Michelle Bachmann was hysterical about the Vagisil thing in Texas and beat that horse long past dead. I think Herman Cain pretty much torpedoed his own effort, however.

I wrote back in 2012 Mr. Perry could have been the compromise candidate that could have won against Obama. The grassroots was screaming anyone but Romney and the Republican Establishment still at the time was putting on airs as if Romney was not already anointed. Mr. Perry seemed the obvious compromise.

That was until Romney and his campaign started fragging every tent that contained a person of possible opposition.

We will see in which direction Mr.Perry goes as to how his campaign will be run. Will it be the Republican Establishment consultant gang of high paid losers or will Mr. Perry bring in new fresh faces with the common sense approach of earning votes and not demanding them.

I could get behind Mr. Perry. My only "litmus test" is him being for less government in our lives and even less government requiring less spending. I guess that make me an ideologue according to some on this site. Whatever...

The fact that those conditions have to even be mentioned tells you just how far in the muck the Republican Establishment has mired the party.

Remember Mississippi Mr.Perry!

Perry is saying the right things but dragging his boots on closing the Texas border. We are getting quite annoyed. He keeps yammering that he´s waiting for Obama to call up the guard, when the national guard of Texas is at Perry´s disposal. Could be the big money donors he´s lining up don´t want the border closed? If he doesn´t get moving, he will be toast because of this issue.

The reason Perry is pleading with Obama to activate the Guard for use on the border is so the financial burden doesn´t fall squarely on Texas. Perry can send them, but it is my undertanding that the Guard members will have no authority to apprehend or detain border crossers without federal permission. Jeh Johnson has said he worries that state National Guards should not be used for this purpose because they might be needed during hurrican season.

It´s all really depressing and infuriating.

Texas has already spent hundreds of millions trying to secure the border. Perry has asked for reimbursement for that because securing the border is a FEDERAL responsibility. I´m not sure what authority Perry has to send the Guard to the border, but even if he does who is going to pay for it? At the risk of repeating myself securing the border is a FEDERAL responsibility - Barack Obama´s responsibility.

Wall Street Journal, by David Chinni    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/13/2014 6:07:52 AM     Post Reply
U.S. military engagement on Islamic State may alter the political calculus for this year’s midterms, but the potential impacts may reach beyond the next few months and into 2016, thanks to a shift among tea party supporters. In September 2013, 64% of tea party supporters said they believed taking military action against “the Syrian government” was not in the national interest. In this latest survey, 68% of tea party supporters said they believe talking military action against “ISIS in Iraq and Syria” is in the national interest. That shift is much bigger than the change among the county as a whole. In 2013, 47% of Americans said they

Why the Confederacy Lost

There is an old story, probably apocryphal, about a meeting of the Southern Historical Society in the years after the Civil War. The topic was Gettysburg — what mistakes, large or small, did the Confederates make that led to the Southern defeat? The debate was heated and furious. Tempers were at the boiling point. Finally, one of the participants turned to George Pickett of “Pickett’s Charge” fame. “George,” he said, “you were there. Why did we lose the battle?” to which Pickett replied, “I always thought the Yankees had something to do with it.” This anecdote reflects a historiographical debate about the Civil War in general.

Senate Democrats who are anxious about their re-election prospects in November are puzzled that Sen. Thomas R.

His Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee will hold a hearing Monday on his bill to add two members to the Senate and a voting member of to the House. It’s understandable that the Democrats want to add to their membership, since the District, the Valhalla of the bureaucracy, will be in Democratic hands approximately forever. But Vincent C.

By now, the video’s gone viral: Sen. Ted Cruz walking off the stage after being booed for speaking in support of Israel at a Washington summit dedicated to the defense of the Middle East’s persecuted Christian minorities. On just about every level, the episode is sad, especially if it’s used to sharpen divisions among people who have much to gain from coming together. In fact, the whole aim of In Defense of Christians — host of the conference where Cruz spoke — is to unite the disparate Mideast religious communities in solidarity with the Christian victims of Islamist extremism. That’s no easy task. Cruz was asked to

At a Labor Day rally in Milwaukee, President Obama turned the limelight on himself, approvingly and inaccurately. “By almost every measure,” he declared, “the American economy and the American workers are better off than when I took office.” In contrast to Mr. Obama’s self-congratulatory assertion, the Census Bureau reports that median household income in the United States, adjusted for inflation, is down by more than $2,000 since Obama’s first inauguration in January 2009. Additionally, as an indicator of the economic downturn, a sixth of the U.S. population is currently receiving food stamps, an increase in the

Austin - A dispute over Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis´ book tour intensified Thursday as her Republican opponent, Greg Abbott, accused her in a formal complaint of violating state election laws. In a filing with the Texas Ethics Commission, Abbott campaign manager Wayne Hamilton alleges that Davis, a state senator from Fort Worth, "converted political contributions to her personal use" in violation of state law. The state ethics commission investigates alleged ethics violations by officeholders and candidates, and can levy fines or refer charges against violators if complaints are validated.

Supporters of President Barack Obama, such as one of his campaign donors Robert Deitrick, an Ohio financial advisor often quoted in Forbes and elsewhere, insist that the Obama economy has been much more robust than Ronald Reagan’s. Are they right? Let’s look at some numbers. President Reagan entered office in a period of high inflation which was stamped out by high interest rates that in turn led to the 1982 recession. His job-creation record after that may fairly be termed outstanding: nearly 20 million more Americans were employed when he left office than when the recession ended. Overall, including the recession

Ticking them off in a breakfast with reporters sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor, Mr. Portman identified these areas of “common ground:” 1. The Keystone XL pipeline. Support for the pipeline has been growing among red-state Democrats and when a nonbinding measure endorsing the project came to a vote in March 2013, the vote was 62-37 with 27

Much has changed in the thirteen years since America was attacked. At least one thing has remained constant: the stupidity and futility of 9/11 truthers. The truthers don’t believe men with ties to an Islamist terror group hijacked airplanes and flew them into the twin towers or the Pentagon. In some cases, they don’t believe planes hit these buildings at all. At minimum, they maintain the government orchestrated or at least permitted the attacks. Writing about such bizarre conspiracy theorists may seem like an easy lay-up for a columnist, much like denouncing child molesters or praising puppies. Is it really worth it to

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

SAN DIEGO — African-American elementary students in California were chronically truant at nearly four times the rate of all students during the last school year, according to a state report released Friday. The report by the California Attorney General´s office is the first time the data has been broken down according to race and income levels. Officials say such data is needed to address the problem. Poverty and suspensions are contributing factors. Overall, more than 250,000 elementary school students missed 10 percent or more of the 2013-2014 school year or roughly 18 or more school days.

Check your hygiene privilege. Cabbies who smell badly are probably just oppressed folks who came directly from their terrorist training camp to the airport and didn’t have time to change. Body odour is among 52 criteria that officials at San Diego International Airport use to judge taxi drivers. Cabbies say that smacks of prejudice and discrimination. It does discriminate between cabbies who smell like an open sewer and those who don’t. It further prejudges what a good smell is.

This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slandered a group of Middle Eastern Christians who were trying to raise awareness of their struggle to avoid a genocide in the Middle East. His cynical grandstanding was rightly condemned — but he was hardly alone. Cruz agreed to speak to this group, which included bishops of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, ostensibly out of solidarity, but took the occasion to antagonize them over their insufficient praise for Israel, then smeared them as anti-Semites before dropping the mic.
