Rick Perry sat down with Glenn Beck today on one of his last shows to talk about creating jobs in Texas and the TSA. My only regret on this was that Beck didn’t ask Perry about his stance on illegal immigration, especially given that he is a border state. But it’s still a good video:

    Perry hasn’t been a Gov. that I’ve seen or heard much from directly. I went to high school and college in Texas. Good times. Heady days. I like the way people think down there. I started appreciating the comfort and good looks of western boots with jeans.

    This business about Perry poaching jobs from other states is really something…something quite telling. Let the left run with that. I want that on every channel. Even a doomus can see through that right?

    Don’t be so sure Rshill7.

    Anyway, I liked this, and it’s good to see and hear Perry. I want to hear more. Fox reported a couple of days ago that he was going to announce a run in August based on some inside source they had. I did not realize that Texas lawmakers meet every other year for 140-some days then go home and live under the laws they pass? Awesome! We could replicate some of that in DC. They could meet even less. Wouldn’t that give us all some certainty?

      They couldn’t get into near as much mischief if Congress met every other year.
      And they might have to make the bills shorter and easier to read too!

        I already think this man could anihilate O’. I’m talking mop the floor with him, rinse him out, wring him out, and wax the same floor again with him. O’d be a muddy, waxy mess! I think the first thing that should be done when we win the Presidency and the Senate, to go with that lovely house we’ve got working, is to undo everything O’ has done.

        I’m feeling all politically giddy. This election is ours to win and ours to lose. It’s a must have. It’s scary. If conservative traditional folk can’ t get up off of their bloated blessed assurances in 2012…we may as well break out the butter and jam and started spreading it all over ourselves.

    It would be nice to have some adult supervision in the White House.

    Re: Frisking Granny; All we have to do is ask Israel how they do this. They know how. We are blinded by our easy life here in the US. The Al-Killers can wait ten, twenty, one hundred years because they know they will eventually find a weak USA and a useless Europe, both destroyed from within by the “progressives”. Terrorists will use children and they use Granny. First seal the borders, second profile. It’s so simple. Any group against that is lying about their agenda and will be responsible for the death of millions of innocent people (eg. many more 911’s). Defending ourselves isn’t really part of the “progressive” fantasy life we live in but our children are toast if we don’t throw out our “progressive” trash now.

    I don’t know enough about Perry. Can someone speak to his past with Al Gore and his position on illegals?

    • Anonymous

      Two interestingly well targeted questions. ;-)

      I gotta say the Gore story is going to knock him out of the running in the primaries. The liberals will never bring it up though.

          in summary….

          Perry was Al Gore’s Campaign Manger in Texas for his presidential run.

          Perry supports in state tuition for illegals.

          • Anonymous

            “Rick Perry, who entered the Texas legislature as a Democrat in 1984, served as Al Gore’s Texas Campaign Chairman in the 1988 presidential campaign. Soon after the campaign, Perry switched parties and was elected Texas Agriculture Commissioner as a Republican in 1990. “Going through that (Gore experience) was part of what started me through the process of changing parties in 1989,” Perry later said. “I came to my senses.”

            Do you see anything incorrect in this little blurb/link above?

            • Anonymous

              I did not know his excuse. But I guess that is probably because I figure there is none.

              Al Gore is like John Edwards – they are kind of person that any moral, honest or decent human being could not stand to be in the same room with for more than 2 minutes, let alone work for.

              • Anonymous

                …and look at how soon thereafter he went Republican. I like that. I wonder how many times he vomited during Al’s run? Traditional Texas Democrats aren’t like the Progressives of today by any stretch. I like a man who can make a new decision based on new information, don’t you?

            No, and no he doesnt.
            He was Chairman of the Texas for Gore campaign.
            He was also a democrat at this time and after the Gore Campaign, for whatever reason that is not publicly known, Rick switched parties and became a Republican.

              For Texas’s sake, I hope that new bill doesn’t get tied up in the courts by the ACLU like the one we passed here in Oklahoma.

      I want someone to ask Perry what made him switch from democrat to conservative.
      Timeline almost tells the story in itself since it happened almost immediatefly following his support of Al Gore.
      And before we can tar him with the “flip flop” brush, Michelle Bachman was also a liberal in her past life.

        People grow up. They mature. They come to realizations about life and liberty and about how to pass a great country on to their/our children as a proud legacy that they can also be proud of. These things become important…indeed, paramount. They figure out which path leads to those. Many never do. Perry saw the light. He compared it to the darkness. He chose the better path. He corrected his course. Once again…I like that.

        It is not the liberal part that creeps me out – it is that the liberal in this case was Al Gore. You cannot get much lower in the scum of humanity than Gore.

    Good interview. What he is doing in Texas, exercising state sovereignty to attract people and business, seems enormously important to the Republic. It leaves the progressive states with more parasites and less producers so they can sit and stew in the their septic tanks. And, it is a fine poke in the eye of the DC Statists.

    I would like to hear though how Texas deals with inevitable influx of the liberals who successfully sucked the life out their home state and are looking for a new host. This has happened in Colorado and North Carolina for example who attracted business, built strong economies, low cost of living and great lifestyle. The liberals and the unions moved in and now government is bloated, regulations stifling, taxes are rising and the nanny state spreading its wings.

    I do not believe for a minute that the TSA has changed its procedures based on the threat of Texas’ legislation. If any state could have passed a law like that by now, it is Texas. Perry is equivocating here.

      “If any state could have passed a law like that by now, it is Texas. Perry is equivocating here.”

      I believe that American Airlines and Southwest Airlines both have huge hubs in Texas.
      What would happen to them if Obama shut down all the airports in TX?
      KingBarry could do that…everything with a control tower is under Federal purview.
      What would any of the other candidates do in this same situation?
      Do you think that Sarah Palin would put that many jobs in jeopardy?
      I would hope not.

      And we don’t know what any of the other candidates would do on the issue of illegal immigrants…do we?
      Which ones have ever been governor of a southern border state?
      Do they all get a pass?
      And it is not even the governor’s job to protect the border…that is the Federal Government’s job.
      Just because the Feds don’t do it worth diddly, doesn’t mean it becomes the governor’s job.

    Rick just pushed legislation abolishing “Sanctuary Cities” and giving our law enforcement more powers to investigate and detain illegal aliens.

    only thing I noticed is that Rick and glenn didn’t seem to help each other. Styles do differnet. Glenn was joking around Perry was serious. i think Perry would have a better interview with someone like Hannity or greta.

      Greta went down to Texas back in May, and did a long segment with Perry that spanned two nights.
      She went down on the border and Perry showed her what he and the Rangers were doing to patrol and secure it the best that they could, with the resources that they have.

    He reminds me of a Ken doll come to life. I am still hearing too much from Texans they don’t like him.

    • Anonymous

      Yes. I cannot put my finger on it exactly. Something seems a bit too scripted, a bit too nicely aligned.

      At the Tea Party Rallies in DC, we always got an earful from the Texans we met. I wish some would post more here about Perry.

      • Anonymous

        Definitely something artificial about him. From that one speech I saw he has strange body language as well, as if it was off cue. Kinda spastic. Like someone that is nodding his head yes while saying no.

        Just have to wait and see what happens. Slim pickens thus far, still hoping and praying for the Phoenix to rise up from the ashes to save us.

    I live in Texas. I like Perry. He’s made some poor choices in the past, but, who hasn’t. The economy is better here and the atmosphere relaxed. He made a stance on not allowing anymore of the rainy day fund to be touched and I admire that. I don’t believe a State should bailout every school district’s budget woes without those districts and municipalities fixing their issues first. I didn’t care for his stance on NAFTA…that actually scares me. I believe him to be a mix of RINO and conservative but seems to listen to the people which is why he’s backed off of some of his other issues (mandated vaccine and the transTexas corridor).
    I’d like to see him run…

      I live in Texas and I like Perry, too. your comments are right on target. This is not a perfect world and a “perfect” candidate seems to be difficult to find. I would rather he be the vp candidate. Christie for President?

      • Anonymous

        I’ve read a little about Christie…one is that he favors the Muslim crowd…that bothers me a great deal. If it weren’t for that, I’d probably be in for him. Each candidate has an issue or two I don’t care for so I’m waiting to see what happens.

    Kelly60 asked/answered a few of my questions. The other one is – Why did Perry attend the last Bilderberg Conference with KingBarry and Hitlerite?

    • Anonymous

      Need to check that…without doing so, offhand, I’d say that was the RINO leaning part of Perry.
