I said he's another Bush

Bush wanted the TARP and so did Perry.

Legitimate or not

it looked like good facebook material. Posted!

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

So now possibly phony

So now possibly phony documents are "good enough"?

Why are some you folks falling all over yourself to blackball Rick Perry? His extreme beliefs are already known and more light wll be thrown on his real positions over time.

perrys just getting started.

perrys just getting started. the builderberg meeding produced him as a candidate.

If you follow

the above link from pseudonym, scroll down to the video of Obama, and look to the right of it, there's another link to the letter from Gov. Perry dated Feb. 18. It's also under "Press Releases" on this site.

Sorry I can't put it up here for you to go to direct and have to just give directions. Still learning how to put up a link.

I'll give as much respect to my elected officials as they give to the Constitution!

heres the link

I question that document's

I question that document's legitimacy, but if it is proven legitimate then we should push hard. I really think Perry is already done, and our real competition is going to be Sarah Palin...

Palin is....

a different story. Getting the public past her persona and, though I know it comes off sounding sexist but really isn't, her looks (she is very attractive and wholesome), will be the difficult part IMO. She certainly can't debate the issues substantively. Given the opportunity, Ron Paul would school her just as quickly and as embarrassingly as Rick Santorum. That is her biggest weakness. If she throws her hat in the ring, she has to be taken down with a KO.

"For having lived long, I have experienced many instances of being obliged, by better information or fuller consideration, to change opinions, even on important subjects, which I once thought right but found to be otherwise." - Benjamin Franklin

If she runs, she cannot win.

If she runs, she cannot win. Far too divisive and will never pick up the fence-sitter voters. She is not remotely moderate enough.

It's time people start taking Palin's insanity seriously


Here's another good article, from the guardian:


By her own account, Sarah Palin's pregnancy was a "high-risk" one: she was 44 years old, and it was her seventh pregnancy (she had had two previous miscarriages); the baby had Down's Syndrome and was about to be born prematurely. The fact that Palin, despite the obvious complications, embarked on a ten-hour plane journey from Dallas to Anchorage with a stopover in Seattle, bypassing the first-rate Baylor Regional Medical Centre in Dallas with a neonatal intensive-care unit (NICU) situated ten minutes away from the conference she was attending, is mystifying – even more so since Palin then elected not to attend Providence hospital in Anchorage, which is also equipped with excellent NICU facilities that would have ensured a safe delivery for her premature son.

Sarah Palin officially gave birth at Mat-Su Regional Medical Centre, a local hospital with no NICU at Palmer, Alaska, on 18 April 2008. The 6lb 2oz Trig was presented by his grandparents to journalists just a few hours after his birth. Oddly, in a memorable appearance in Waco, Texas, on 14 September 2010, Palin, after bragging that she holds the "world record" in hiding her pregnancy and joking about the "Trig truthers", told the audience that she "had the baby in Anchorage", when official accounts have her giving birth 45 minutes away in Palmer.

Her personal decisions

Her personal decisions regarding her infant are completely irrelevant. Stick with her politics. There are still plenty of reasons she is unelectable.

I beg to differ

It is relevant to ME. It is relevant to many people who are paying attention. She is not just your run-of-the-mill lying politician. She is totally insane.

Do you vote for politicians

Do you vote for politicians based on whether or not they wash their own dishes? Same effect for me. What matters to me is this: Will they be able to do what they say they can do? Do they have a consistent stance on their issues? Are they aligned with my views? Are they pro-business/ pro-Constitution /and do they have a solid understanding of what is really happening in the economy?

If Palin's pathological lying doesn't answer these for you:

Will they be able to do what they say they can do? Do they have a consistent stance on their issues?

then I am just at a loss.

Where is the

date on the letter?

According to the first link

According to the first link the letter from Perry requesting TARP funds is dated Feb. 18, 2009.

That doesn't sound like the same letter

From the politifact link:

The law specified that governors had 45 days after its passage to certify that their state would "request and use" the offered funds. On Feb. 18, 2009, Perry sent Obama the requisite letter of certification, assuring the president that the state would accept the funds and use them "in the best interest of Texas taxpayers."

Why would a letter from the Governor of Texas saying he would accept TARP funds be signed by Rick Perry, RGA chairman, and Joe Mancini, DGA chairman?
