As Rush Limbaugh always says, "the liberals will ALWAYS tell us who they fear by who they attack."

They have attacked Palin, Bachmann, and now Perry, mostly without success. Never believe anything you read or hear about them, unless you research it yourself. ALWAYS check sites like "On the Issues," that gets the answers from the candidates themselves. Unlike the Pavlovian dogs on the Left who vote as they are told, research is our friend.

What Perry was 10 years ago is not as important as his track record since then and one thing is certain, he has a better record than Comrade Obumfvck did or does right now. What we need is someone who isn't afraid to take the fight to the Left and Perry doesn't hold back. A weak-sister like Romney is just what the Left wants, in other words, another Juan McShamnesty. Rick Perry isn't the perfect candidate but we must consider who can defeat the Keynesian Kenya with a whopping margin in order to cover the Democrat's penchant for voter fraud.

A Perry/Santorum ticket? (Links at the bottom)




  1. Gunny,

    Good list. What is his stand on Illegals?

  2. Gunny,

    Nicely done - I'm thinking that former UN Ambassador John Bolton would make a splendid VP choice. Gives Foreign Policy balance to the ticket. Could you just hear all the dictators and liberals scream?

  3. He is not for amnesty or sanctuary cities.

    Works for me.

  4. Common Snse,

    LIKE IT! Bolton is pretty hardcore and don't take any crap.

  5. What about Hillary's job? I think Bolton was made for SecState.

    I like Santorum at VP, Cain at SecCommerce, Pawlenty home in Minn., Romney as Amb. to Antarctica, Paul as Sec of Treasury.

  6. We simply are NOT going to get "the perfect candidate". As long as the eventual nominee is 90% in line with my views,they will get my support. Now,if ONLY the hapless RNC could get it through their hat parking lots to SUPPORT the candidates the PEOPLE want,instead of "it's Mitt's turn",we MAY get somewhere. I'd take Bolton at the TOP of the ticket.

  7. TGP,

    Great post. Romney would be perfect there! haha.

    While I do not like Paul, he would be the prefect guy to audit the Fed! Not sorry to see Pawlenty go. He's weak.

  8. clyde,

    Never underestimate the GOP's stupidity. They'll trot out Mitt and wonder why they lost.

    The lesson of Nov 2010 is lost on them.

    I'm ready for the American Conservative Party who's platform espouses solif American values and beliefs and follows the Constitution as i was written.

  9. Gunny,

    I can't help but like Paul, he's a character, but I don't like his "mind our own damn business" view on foreign policy. I have a streak of isolationist but I also believe in pre-emptive ass whippings.

  10. Gunny,

    Not to be a discordant note - but if the people who learned the lesson of 2010 divorce themselves from the GOP - then those people have no one to blame but themselves if Mitt is on the 2012 ballot. If you aren't part of the solution - then by default you are part of the problem. The GOP doesn't select candidates - the people who vote/caucus/convention do. That seems to be lost on a lot of my TEA movement friends.

    If you want to influence the choice then you have to get in the game. The TEA purists are surrendering the playing field to the moderates. We conservatives would appreciate some help. The Rep. Ron Paul crowd get that - it's why they show up and have a disproportionate effect on things like the Iowa Straw Poll.

    As for tickets: I could live with Senator Santorum as VP - but I don't like him being a heartbeat away from the Presidency - someone pointed out today that he has as much executive experience as Barack Obama (Rep. Bachmann too). In that vein ideology doesn't necessarily trump a lack of experience. On the other hand - being from Pennsylvania might be his ticket in if he can show strength in some Northeastern venues.

  11. TGP,

    His idea to boot the UN and audit the Fed are awesome. Other than that, he's a loon.

  12. Common Snse,

    I'll be voting in my primary and I always do but you have an excellent point. I would like to see primaries be closed to Indies and Dems because they come in and vote for a McShamnesty and we get the shaft.

  13. Our primaries are so late that even Huckabee had quit before our vote. The media gets its talking points from "party" heads, and the media picks a candidate to push. They pushed Willard hard last time, and got nothing. They're pushing him hard this time, and it is disgusting.

    The party system is at fault, we should go back to the original deal. Most votes is President, second most is VP, regardless of party. Then just let everybody vote in November and deal with it. No more primaries, no more billion dollar campaigns.

  14. I sure don't agree with everything Perry advocates.
    but then
    I didn't agree with everything Reagan advocated.
    He's a hell of a lot better than anyone since Ronnie.
    If ONLY he would get tough on illegal immigration.

  15. Gunny, here is the latest about your guy, Mr. Rick Perry.

    He was never a conservative. I read the blogs coming out of Texas and conservatives down there never warmed up to him and frankly, they don't like or trust him. I think Libs fear him because he was once one of THEM. So now that he's turned his back on them ( after teaming with gutless Gore ), they're concerned he will pull Dem or Independent votes away from NoBama. Santorum was another one who talked like a RINO before he got booted from his PA post. That's pathetic in a NoBama entitlement state that, if I can remember correctly, thumbed it's nose at protagonist Clinton who caved to the Republican smack down on welfare back in '94. That state never fell in line with the resulting 'workfare,' by not paring down its rolls. Could getting booted by progressive PA have meant Santorum wasn't leaning far enough to the left? My vote would be for Bolton if he would run & he hints that he wants to. He walks the walk. Don't be fooled, read the blogs in TX on Perry. After dealing with colossal aholes like flip-flopper Arlen Specter, i'm passing on 'Petitioning Perry'.

  16. Anon,

    Perry teamed wih Gore back in 1988. People change. I am looking at his record NOW and like what I see. If he teams with a solid Conservative, maybe Bolton, I would go for it. I hear from other texans who like him.

    There is no one perfect candidate but I DO KNOW that Romney is a no-go.

  17. As Winston Churchill said: "I you aren't a liberal at 20 you have no heart, if you aren't a conservative at 40 you have no brain."

    Ronald Reagan and Charlton Heston were Democrats once. Very often the converts are more zealous in their new found knowledge than their always conservative colleagues. It would be questionable if JFK could win a democrat primary today.

    I think that some of the responses from the right on Perry have taught me a lesson - if there is an exclamation point in the title of the post - delete without reading.
