Which leaves us one candidate: Rick Perry. He hasn’t gained much support since his “and umm…” flub (which feels like ancient history now). It’s amazing to me that Republicans are willing to ignore his ardently free-market, pro-gun, fiscally-responsible record over that gaffe, and instead back one of two candidates- Gingrich or Romney- who have personally participated in the ruination of our country. This just gobsmacks me!Read the rest.
A refresher about Perry:
1) Rick Perry’s state has had the most job growth of any state during the 2000s;
2) He signed into law Texas’ ‘castle doctrine law’, solidly cementing Texas as the state with the most permissive self-defense laws in the country; and he isn’t just pro-gun, he has a CHL and carries a handgun regularly;
3) Perry’s tax plan mirrors that of Hong Kong, the most economically-free place on Earth, while Gingrich’s tax plan is a virtual carbon-copy of Perry’s, and Romney’s plan is just plain gobbledygook;
4) Nobody questions Rick Perry’s sincerity when he speaks. One may not agree with him on a given topic- and I do disagree with him on some things- but when he states his position, there’s no doubt he’s calling it as he sees it. Considering the weasely-ness of Gingrich and Romney, this should be Perry’s greatest selling point.
Perry's ad suggests he has a sense of humor and maybe even [gasp] some humility. What a refreshing contrast to the egotism we're used to.
Have another: Perry shows his conservative instincts and likability on Leno
