Rick Perry — Out of the Closet!

No, he’s not gay. It’s even worse: He’s a Comminist!!!

Today, Rick Perry is reassuring his faithful teatards that Medicare is unconstitutional. But now he’s Busted!

Ten years ago, Rick Perry proposed a bi-national health insurance program to cover American and Mexican citizens along the border. Lord Jesus, NOOO!!!

It’s bad enough he was pushing socialized medicine on The American People. Even worse, it includes them filthy Meskins! And that’s not all: Governor Rick Perry also signed the Texas DREAM Act, which provided in-state tuition fees to the college-age children of illegal immigrants.

Governor Perry also signed legislation to INCREASE funding for Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program.

He’s a RINO! I’ll bet that boy wasn’t even born in Texas! And he ain’t gonna make it to that there White House. My fellow teawipe, JoAnn Fleming, spoke for all of us when she said:

“More checking under the hood needed before we buy the car.”

Ah the dilemma of being a Conservative Governor, actually have to hold your nose and do populist thing not dreaming that it may come back and haunt you with the far right when you want to do something nationally. Just like Romney and his Heath plan.

The only people that may actually like it are the large majority of the middle of the road voters-

but unfortunately they serve two masters - one actually!

The Late Molly Ivans would have had Perry's number for us just like she did Bush.

If the Teaparty was really serious about "checking under the hood" they would have dumped the Republicans years ago.

Yes there is, they could have stuck to their guns, been as independent as they say they were, and as well financed as they are, really made some meaningful change.

Like holding these so called fiscal conservatives who voted for the deficient accountable.

Instead they became dupes of the Republican Party as I always suspected they were. Oh they make some noise and stir up some things - but they will be assimilated by the Borg Conservatives and in a few years Tom will be posting whatever happened to them.

They are trying to make Republicans be accountable. They certainly aren't as well funded as the progressive trying to take over the Democrat party.

Who knows maybe they will be their own party some day. Want to ponder if we had 4 parties-Republicans-Democrats-Tea Party-Progressive who would be more like to win?

Let's just scrap the two-party system and form a coalition government. I think it's about time. Just end all the stupid bickering, and get people working together to solve problems.

Who would win, Lisa? Certainly not those who are currently the loudest ones on the extreme ends of the political spectrum. It would be those representing moderate-left, center and moderate-right interests who would win. And in that case, America would win.

Let's get on with it!

Hey, come on, it's o.k. to dream,, right? 8-)

And, nice post about Perry, Tom! It's good to know he can talk out of both sides of his mouth at once with the best of them. This will be great ammo if he gets the GOP nomination! And that's "if"... I was thinking he is a sure bet, but lately I've been wondering. With quite a bit of time left before the GOP convention, lots of things can happen.

Sounds good to me Snave. Let's start anew with ordinary citizens like the country originally did,you know like those at the Tea Party Rallies.
Been to a few never aw any extremists,all were quite down to earth. Just people worried about the country. Nothing wrong with being worried and rightfully so.
Not that I would expect you to agree because you already seem have those crazy people pegged.

Ivins did write about Perry. It was she who gave him the nickname "Good Hair." And, she definitely had his number.

Earth to Lisa, who wrote about tea partyers: "Instead they became dupes of the Republican Party as I always suspected they were."

Tea partyers were and are Republicans through and through. It's explained here. The dupes were know-nothings and underinformed independents who fell for the con job that tea partyers were something new and different.

Snave, the two parties exist for a reason: they represent divergent interests. If you could somehow scrap the two parties, you'd be blown away by how fast they would either come back or be replaced by two new parties that look, sound and act like the old parties. Why? Because the divergent interests wouldn't go away. They would still exist. They would still want and need parties to advance their interests and serve their needs.

We could go the way of several European countries in past years, having umpteen parties, each tailored closely to the preferences of segments of society. You'd have weak, often ineffective governments spending most of their time falling and then being reconfigured into new coalitions in an effort to have enough consensus to get something done.

But that doesn't work. Some highly disciplined splinter party that behaves just the way Republicans have been behaving invetiably pulls a powerplay, demanding their way or they'll pull out of the coalition and cause the government to fail. After awhile, the other parties tire of paying blackmail to the troublemaking party and let the government fall. Then, the whole thing goes throught the cycle again.

Be very careful what you wish for. If you think things are bad now, realize they can always be made worse.

I hate to be a misogynist, but you are one DUMB broad. This has got to be the stupidest thing I've ever seen you say, and that's keeping in mind that you never make a comment that isn't breathtakingly stupid.

Oh well thank you all you Charlie Gibsons for sneering down your nose at me with all your 'know better than though" wisdom,or should I say "theories."
Saying it like you pretend to know better doesn't make it true. Now did you all get your memos from the WH this morning?
I'll take one Hillbilly and raise you one Kenyan sanke oil salesman..
Oh and thanks you for making the people stan up stronger. The numbers are increasing thanks to you and all your media quislings.

Lisa, there are facts, theories and opinions. It's OK to write things based on any of those, provided you're accurate and honest about which of them you're presenting.

People who care about truth and accuracy give more credence to theories and opinions based on facts. That's just the way it is.

I know, S.W., I know! LOL! I shoulda put some smileys in there. Thanks for the well thought-out response, my comment is mostly just frustration talkin'.

But hey, I'd like if we had at least three major parties. And I would love for one of those parties to be one that adopts the Democratic platform and sticks to its values, for example. 8-)
