Rick Perry is a dangerous guy

Rick Perry is a dangerous guy

Will someone with mass media please expose the president want-to-be from Texas for what he really is — dangerous?

Gov. Rick Perry is being marketed as a business friendly, anti-tax, deficit-cutting conservative Republican chosen by God himself to lead the nation to the economic promised land beginning in 2012. His bio suggests that half the new jobs were created in Texas because he is the governor. One bio picture depicts him in full pilot regalia — flight suit, sunglasses, helmet under arm in front of a sleek jet aircraft, gazing toward the heavens, suggesting a fighter pilot anticipating his next combat mission.

Perry is really a converted Democrat, switching political parties when it became apparent that Texas was swinging to the right and once in the GOP fold had to be be a business friendly, anti-tax, conservative to be elected. His religious devotion is probably sincere, although certainly convenient given his target audience. Texas has created many new jobs while Perry has been governor, but mostly due to sky-rocketing oil prices, government jobs due to population growth and “snatching” of jobs from areas of the country due to Texas’ tax incentives. During the same period the state budget deficit went up, health care coverage down, and number of minimum wage jobs up.

He attended Texas A&M, entered the Air Force and indeed became a pilot — flying turboprop cargo aircraft in Europe in the mid ’70s — hardly the experience his bio picture taken in front of an Air Force training aircraft suggests.

Gov. Rick Perry hit the campaign trail and although supposedly in an early GOP primary, directs most of his rhetoric toward the sitting president or anybody connected with the current administration. His most recent suggestions being that the president may not be patrotic and the Fed chairman may be committing treason by holding the interest rates low. He certainly says what he thinks which might be refreshing, given today’s political climate, but is worrisome if pictured in a foreign policy sense.

Deeper investigation into Gov. Perry, I think, will expose him for what he really is — another shoot-from-the-lip West Texas cowboy seeking a position for which he is neither intellectually nor sufficiently experienced to fill. We’ve been down this road before with George W. Bush, a Texas “cowboy” educated at Yale. How did that work out for you?

Rick Perry's record:

17% of Texans are living in poverty
26% don't have health care, the highest rate in the nation.
The income gap between the wealthy and middle class is fifth widest in the nation.
SAT scores of Texas is 45th in the nation.
Texas is dead last with people over 25 that have a high school diploma.
He talks down the stimulus but accepted every penny he could and that money created 45,000 jobs.
Texas is tied with Mississippi for having the most minimum wage jobs.

You guys can dig up more crap from, liberals like fletcher, a liberal, that writes for the liberal Wash. Post & carofoli who writes for the liberal San Fran Cron.
Where in the H--- were you when obummer (lower case) was running.

Will you guys stop watching msnbc?

By the way Pres Regan at one time was a democrat.

Such rantings are only found in liberal areas like Y-town.

If anyone needs an awakening, it's you people in Y-town. You need a Republican mayor to put you back on the map.

I visited Y-town last Summer, and I couldn't believe the area around St. Dominic. What the H--- hit it?

It certainly is amazing how quickly our liberal friends can dig up information to trash an opponent, yet turn a silent ear towards the antics and inequities of our current President. It is as if they are deflecting misgivings and disappointments over Obama by finding as much "wrong" with other candidates as possible.

I seem to recall there are at least 2 or 3 democrats who were once republicans, but no one seems to be complaining about them, despite their being a republican for many years.

Let's let this political process work its way thru, before we begin to scream bloody murder over a candidate. I, for one, want to see and hear what they have to say before I form an opinion. This is the American way and part of the process, afterall. By the way, what are you afraid of?

jojuggie....Do you have any proof you can post that would say the previous posts about perry's record are untrue or do you just think it''s "fishy"?

Personally I hope perry gets the nomination and is the teabagger/republican candidate. In fact I think I'll pray on it.

You and your proof. You're not a very smart guy if you think a liberal or a conservative can't slant an article any way he wants to.

9cambridge(3173 comments)posted 3 years, 6 months ago

jojuggie.... I recall you asking me for proof of something I posted and I was happy to do so. So if you call the facts given in the prior posts "crap" why is it a problem to ask you to provide proof that it's "crap"? It works both ways.

How are the articles slanted if all they did was report actual numbers that reflect what is actually happening in rick perry's Texas? They are not opinions, they are facts and ignoring facts is the definition of trying to put a slant on something.

Trying to slant something would be: some say he is a Muslim, some say he has ties with terrorist and wants to destroy America, some say he wasn't born in America, some say he wants to redistribute wealth, some say he wants to kill grandma. That would be people trying to slant something rather than using facts. Just curious, where is it that you get your information.

When I see an article by a columnist from the NY Times, Washington Post, LA Times, San Fran. St,Louis Post Dispatch, Boston Globe etc.- I know what's coming. There are very few exceptions.
It's like listening to msnbc & Fox News.
At least Fox News shows both sides.

jojuggie...."At least Fox News shows both sides".

Is this what you call "both sides"? This is how the Fix Noise Network covered Obama's first 100 days and the days are counted off in the top right corner.


I really don't see any point in discussing anything with you because it's obvious, if you don't agree with something then in your mind it isn't true. You should never accuse anyone of putting spin on anything because you seem to have that covered yourself.

Hey cambridge, that link you supplied was a product of media matters. Media matters is a george soros production - the atheist who brought down the bank of England - a jerk who believes in abortion, and is trying to bring down the USA.
I'm sure if I tried I could even find some plusses in msnbc.
By the way, Fox News has more listeners than cnn and msnbc combined plus a couple of hundred thousand more.
I see where you are coming from and I also see no reason to continue.
You sound as radical as your links.

Cambridge is excellent when it comes to taking information and presenting it with a slant.
After all, he lives in the State with the 2nd highest unemployment, 3rd worst State for population with high school diplomas, 7th worst in health care coverage, 4th worst budget deficit, etc.
He’s well aware of what a poorly functioning State looks like, and will always blame someone else.

jojuggie....Ah, those were Fix Noise puppets doing the talking, rupert murdoch pulling the strings and you swallowing every word.

What are you going to do, deny they said it. Pretty pathetic

What cambridge is good at is providing proof of what he posts. You should try it sometime..,

jojuggie--Faux news shows both sides? What little credibility you had just went out the door.

16jojuggie(1577 comments)posted 3 years, 6 months ago

Naw, GoPens, I still have much credibility.
The following is a list of some very, very liberals employed by Fox News.
1st of all while Hannity is the most conserative, of all Fox personalites, he has a liberal, on his Great American Panel, every night. How about Bob Beckel, Alan Colmes, Juan Williams, and
Geraldo Riveria. They also have that female Phd. from Occidental College that is on the air often. She is a liberal plus.
Now in contrast, show me some conservatives that are employed by CNN or MSNBC. I mean paid employees.

I don't know if saying Fox News has liberals working for them is supposed to be a joke or if it's just a delusion. Those people are nothing more than talking heads repeating what they are told to say. The word News doesn't even belong in the same sentence with the word Fox.

Hey Rock, according to your post, Fox News must be fooling many Americans, because they are the most watched cable news channel. According, to you, Fox News is for DUMMIES. Is that true?
Cavuto and Greta amaze me at how many very substantial people they attract to their programs. People from both houses, of Congress, and managers of production etc.
Every one of Oreilly's books are on the NYT best seller lists. He has donated over 1M to various charities this year alone. Every one of Oreilly's & Miller's shows are sellouts. Did you know that those shows command over $1000.00 for some seats?
You sound like you are a listener to CNN & MSNBC. These 2 cable channels are dwarfed by Fox News.
Rock, please change your ways.

For anyone that thinks FOX news shows both sides, they're sadly mistaken.

Watch these:

Carl Cameron flat out lies about Obama's health care speech to Congress:


Fox news misreports TARP savings:


Fox news refused to air President Obama's speech. Here's what they aired instead:


Fox news: "We're the only place you won't see Barack Obama on health care..."


...Fox got the news story wrong (again):


Fox falsely claims DOW fell 56 points during Obama's speech:


Go ahead, you Fox junkies, and call me out on the website I'm sourcing. DailyKos completely left-wing... but the news clips, my friends... don't lie.
