Reports: Conservative-Bashers Steve Schmidt,
Henry Barbour Advising Rick Perry

Breitbart Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 8/27/2014 6:44:03 AM

Texas Governor Rick Perry has reportedly aligned himself with two of the most infamous Republican establishment operatives known for trashing conservatives. Perry is working with Henry Barbour, whom conservatives want the Republican National Committee to censure for his group´s smearing of conservatives in the Mississippi Senate runoff, and Steve Schmidt, who has elevated his profile by maligning conservatives, especially former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Politico´s Maggie Haberman reported on Tuesday that Schmidt, the infamous hack from Sen. John McCain´s 2008 presidential campaign whose gamble to go "all-in" and suspend the campaign during the financial crisis turned up snake eyes, "has

Can not fix stupid. The Republican party has left me.

Not happy, I can read history thus will not repeat my mistakes, unlike the Kool-Aid drinkers here. Vote for corruption, then explain why your choice is in the best interest of the nation. I wish to purge the R party, you wish to "go along to get along" because the masters have brainwashed you into thinking they are the lesser of two evils. Evil is still evil.

Rick Perry is hiring the guy who was the architect of the failed McCain campaign? Schmidt and Nicole Wallace spent more time stabbing Palin in the back *in October 08* than they did trying to beat Obama.

Sorry, Rick, no way am I voting for you now.

Governor Perry obviously does not hold the same animus toward Schmidt as Palin fans do. As another poster pointed out yesterday, I´m pretty sure Perry remembers Palin´s ugly attacks on him during the short 2012 campaign, so whatever Schmidt might think of Palin wouldn´t be a detriment to hiring him for PR skills.

Thanks for posting. Perhaps this should be a must-read in case I was only one of many who was leaning toward supporting Perry. It´s not just the people themselves, but the stupidity behind hiring them. Any Republican candidate who repeats the McCain and Romney mistake of alienating conservatives in his attempt to woo independents is just another loser from the start. They fail to see what Reagan did -- stand for conservative ideas and explain to voters why they were better and why liberal ideas failed. He brought people into the tent not based on lame appeals to race, ethnicity, and gender, but on creating more conservatives. Any other method will leave us with another Democrat in 2016, and the final death blow to our country.

My husband and I have supported Rick Perry financially in the past. As Texans, we see Perry´s indictment as a political ploy by the Democrats and are prepared to contribute to his campaign for president. But if Perry brings the stupid by hiring Steve Schmidt, we´re sitting on our checkbook. It´s a much worse mistake than forgetting his talking points onstage. That was unintentional. This is deliberate.

There was no reason to allow Merck to use Texas as a testing ground for its HPV immunization program, except that Merck had donated heavily. To attempt to institute such a program by mandate, without parental consent hardly squares with views of liberty, and represents the same heavy handed government makes better choices than you mentality of Romney/Obamacare, Hillary and Moochies lunch programs.
So once again, on the crony capital issue, she whose name we dare not speak was exactly right. And Perry backed away, as he should have. And Merck didn´t get a mandate to supply its vaccine.
But the liberal republicans are trying to find a horse to ride and maybe now they have one. And Rick Perry is as close to the White House as he is going to get.

#1, with Schmidt at the helm, a democrat would walk into the White House. If you actually support Schmidt as an advisor, you are a defacto democrat - not just one year, but every year. At least the folks here that are threatening to vote democrat have a heart felt desire to turn this country back to common sense. Supporting Schmidt - I don´t know what to say. Guess the US is doomed.

I´d be careful of a knee-jerk reaction on this one, although I´m not a Perry fan and certainly not a Schmidt or Barbour fan.
The article states that Schmidt "has joined the team" helping Perry "with the strategy around his indictment." That´s very different than Schmidt has become a close personal advisor or chief of staff for a campaign. It sounds like he´s specifically hired to help navigate as a TEAM MEMBER through the TX murky legal/political waters ahead. Wouldn´t it be smart for Perry to have input from as many different viewpoints as possible---including hacks, if necessary?
Barbour´s function is not well-defined in this piece and more factual information is needed in order to make a sound judgment.
Sometimes focussing on a finger without seeing the whole hand leads to the wrong conclusion.

Mr. OP is getting a lot ´heat´ from the liberal R´s for supporting a D in Georgia: He´s a dangerous person. He has just about convinced me to switch from Purdue to Nunn.

The liberal R´s are quick to throw barbs, but unwilling to state their ´logic´ for advocating their positions, and candidates.

Nonetheless: to follow is a general question that perhaps someone here has the nerve, and knowledge to answer (I´ll use the Kentucky senate race to focus my query):

For what reason should a Tea Party type person in Ky. vote for Mitch McConnell, after Mitch has, unequivocally, vowed to destroy that person?

As evidenced in the past candidates who have hired Steve Schmidt have been turned into stilted, wooden, tongue-tied candidates who are afraid of their own shadows...AND they don´t win.

I don´t understand what is wrong with candidates like Romney and McCain who think they need to be muzzled and retrained not to speak clearly. Too bad Steve Schmidt can´t employ those "sales tactics" he uses to get himself hired to make his candidates better...not worse. What a waste. I was looking forward to voting for Rick Perry.

One more thought...this probably takes Romney out.

Everyone should go back and read post #14. Perry is hiring Schmidt for his (supposed) PR skills; he is not bringing the guy in to head up a campaign committee.

You know, when the next campaign begins in earnest you´re going to see a lot of familiar names pop up on the candidates´ staffs. Some you´ll approve of, some you won´t. So, if you´re going to reflexively blow off every candidate who has on his team anyone with even a whiff of RINOism about him, the Dem nominee will end up running unopposed.

And #19, there is a three part answer to your question: The Courts, The Courts and The Courts. We must control the Senate in order to block Obama´s worst judicial nominees and give any potential future Republican president a chance to get some decent nominees confirmed.

As often as conservatives have been burned by liberal judges in the past, I find it hard to understand why so many do not appreciate the importance of the judiciary and the critical need to get right-leaning people into judgeships.

Along with #19 - How would Michelle Nunn be worse than the milquetoast Saxby Chambliss we already have? We have to hold his feet to the fire any time there´s a critical issue to get him to vote conservative. He and Isakson (our other milquetoast) were all gung-ho to support Sonia Sotomayor for SCOTUS until they figured out us constituents weren´t happy about what the NRA said about her. I could list numerous other examples.

So, if not for SCOTUS, what then would be the difference? I don´t see any. I´m probably not going to vote for Nunn...I will probably vote Libertarian (Amanda Swafford). I don´t really see me voting for Perdue.

#26, if you read the Post article, you would see that the word "mandate" was Kay Hutchison´s, not Rick Perry´s. She was running against Perry for governor and spectacularly failed. In the NPR piece, the executive order isn´t clearly quoted.

The executive order was reversed and was never placed into practice.

I have no idea what you mean by "flying monkeys". Perhaps it takes one to know one?

Henry? Any relation to Hailey?

Steve Schmidt is the kiss of death, I´m shocked that he can get a job in politics with his record. They don´t call us the stupid party for nothing.

Why vote for Perdue over Nunn? H-A-R-R-Y-R-E-I-D. There - spelled it out for you.

I respect a person´s principles for wanting the most conservative person possible and can even understand not voting if you don´t have a candidate, but how anyone with any type of conscience can vote for Harry Reid´s Majority is symptomatic of Stockholm Syndrome. Don´t vote - you aren´t well - or you are a troll - which is also possible hoping to convince others of really self-defeating behaviors.

Pretty sure Perry has a snowball´s chance of being our candidate anyway. I could make the oppo ad - that stunning silence Perry had in the last debate, for example. Please, no retreads in 2016.

#7: It isn´t just the outrageous Palin-bashing that Schmidt´s done. It´s his general failing as an adviser that he covers with Palin bashing that is also his crime. He is a snake. He´s done nothing but cozy up to Democrats since the 2008 election.

He apparently worked on the 2004 Bush campaign. Lucky for us Kerry was such a miserable candidate. I´ve always wondered how J effin´ got such a large percentage against Bush and now I know. Bush´s team was full of Schmidt.

I´ve always said I was a Rick Perry supporter until he started pandering like a fool at the end of his campaign. He picks the worst advisers going and that is not a good thing for a president.

I could be very wrong, but ...
This bit of business that Governor Perry is forced to deal with, as ridiculous as it is on its face, is serious and could become quite expensive if not dismissed. Perhaps the monetary support that came with those who "joined the team" was an inducement to "hire" them.

If, as suggested in another comment, Rick Perry is being saddled up for the 2016 race by the GOP, it will be interesting to see how well he takes to their chosen bit. Sarah Palin couldn´t be broken, so they joined the Dems in trying to destroy her.

It appears Governor Perry could be between a rock and a hard place politically. On the one hand he could be Delayed by Dems, otoh, he could be Palinized by the GOP. Good luck to him. He´s going to need it.

#22...are you a headline reader with no clue to reality?

If you knew that Harry Reid has over 300 bills on his desk that the Republican House has passed and REFUSES to bring them to a vote. Then he and Obama turn around and lie that the Republicans are a "do nothing congress".

In fact, in this thread, with the exception of one or two people I have just learned where a bunch of LoFos reside and know little facts or truth but love to spout.

Granted the Republicans have turned traitor to the Constitution, however, anyone who considers keeping the Democrats and Repub RINOS in power for another four years should be considered a Communist Traitor and should be tried, convicted and executed.

Otherwise we should all just lay down, drink our RepubDem koolade and sing kumbaya.

As reported by Breitbart Texas, in a keynote conversation at The Texas Tribune Festival, Perry was asked directly by Texas Tribune CEO and Editor-in-Chief Evan Smith if he now believed the bill should be overturned, and Perry answered "No," also commenting, "I still think in 2001 it was the right thing to do in the state of Texas."

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

After declaring war on the Tea Party and often showing nothing but contempt for grassroots conservatives that powered Republicans to record gains in the 2010 midterm elections, Karl Rove whined that the GOP may not take back the Senate this year because of the lack of enthusiasm for his establishment-approved candidates. Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Rove notes that even though Obama´s "job approval numbers are lousy, no Democrat in a competitive Senate race polls regularly above 50%, GOP enthusiasm is high, and independents are trending Republican... each passing day provides evidence as to why a GOP Senate majority is

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

The man who jumped the White House fence this month and sprinted through the front door made it much farther into the building than previously known, overpowering one Secret Service officer and running through much of the main floor, according to three people familiar with the incident. An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert guards to an intruder had been muted at what officers believed was a request of the usher’s office, said a Secret Service official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The officer posted inside the front door appeared to

The L.A. Times is warning that the “worst is yet to come” if a grand jury fails to indict white officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing black 18-year-old Michael Brown. If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notified the media at 3:32 p.m. Tuesday that Dallas has the first diagnosed Ebola case in the nation. The federal agency scheduled a media briefing at 5:30 p.m. from its headquarters in Atlanta. Dallas County officials are expected to participate. Dallas County went through a day-long anxiety attack Tuesday, waiting to hear if the first Ebola diagnosis in the nation would happen here. An unnamed patient at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas was placed in isolation while awaiting test results for the dreaded virus. Apparently, the patient had traveled recently to a

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

President Barack Obama´s intelligence briefings have provided him with specific information since before he won re-election in 2012 about the growing threat of the terror group now known alternatively as ISIS and ISIL, an administration insider told MailOnline on Monday. ´Unless someone very senior has been shredding the president´s daily briefings and telling him that the dog ate them, highly accurate predictions about ISIL have been showing up in the Oval Office since before the 2012 election,´(snip) ´Any time you´re hired by a boss to advise him about what to do in a high-stakes area, and he ignores you for

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs! It

Leading astrologers say that Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky is destined for a future working on social justice and will enjoy a strong relationship with her proud grandparents, Hillary and Bill. After Chelsea Clinton and Mark Mezvinsky’s daughter was born at 7:03 pm at Lenox Hill Hospital on Manhattan’s Upper East Side on Friday, POLITICO asked astrologers to weigh in on what is written in the stars for the former first daughter’s first daughter. “She may not follow her family’s politics, but she will follow the family’s activism and social justice and finding a way to serve the world, following in that
