He says that he’s not a good debater. Hm. That’s a major part of your job. You have to debate/negotiate with the Russians, enemies, non-enemies, business people, the public. The guy isn’t qualified. Anyone who wants to be president and accepts that he’s not a good debater is automatically disqualified!!

This is the Rick Perry I expected to see in the debates. If he can respond as well as he did here, but in the stupid, fake “debate” scanario they are stuck with, then he’ll gain his momentum back. But he’s always done well in interviews. That’s why I first liked him as a candidate. I listened to Mark Levin discuss Perry’s tax plan. Then listened again. If Mark got it right, the plan is a good one, in the same way Cain’s is good, and Paul Ryan’s proposals are good: they are all great starting points for reform. When Chris Wallace tried to get Perry to accept that folks would end up having to do “even more” work deciding which way to go under the Perry plan, Perry’s response was very good. He said most American’s would already know which way they would be better off. He could have… Read more »

Can you please quit with the Romney and Perry love on this website. It smacks of liberalism. I will never vote for either of those 2, If either get the nomination I will either stay the F**K home or write in Ron Paul.

As a 16 year vetern Law Enforcement officer, prior US Army Military policeman for 8 years, Born Again Christian, Tea Partier, and Oath Keeper member I find your reply disgusting. I Support Ron Paul because his vision for America is as closely alligned with the founding as one can get. Limited Government does not mean 4 wars going at once or Support for a corrupt NWO organization in the UN. I love my country and I love what it means.

Funny, I find support of those three topics to be disgusting. Last I checked democrats, not republicans, pushed us in every war we are currently in except afghanistan. And no Bush did not send us to Iraq, I got a list of quotes from democrats pushing for that fight with every democratic leader baying for blood of Saddaam. Bush went to war on Iraq based on congress determining Iraq to be a clear and present danger to the US. And I have to say, knowing what I know now with my perfect 20/20 hindsight, I still do not think we were wrong due to the fact Saddaam had clear ties to al qaeda. Libya, Yemen, and what other place in africa are we at? Uganda? Absolutely illegal never should have had a single drone in any of their respective air space.

I didn’t get a sense of that in this interview. I thought they were all good questions, and he didn’t act like the MSNBC dingbats in pressing a bad premise, nor in pushing too far on any particular question.

Wallace is stille mileas ahead of anyone in the other networks, from what I remember. I quit watching all of them in 2010, though.

I only watch clips here, and turn on the TeeVee when there’s breaking news on the Internet.

He should have skipped the first two and the bloomberg debate never should have happened though it marked the turn for Perry showing he was improving, and showed cain lying his ass off about the FED statements he has made.

I.e., obscure and BS debates like the bloomberg ones are a waste of time for anyone to bother with.

Here’s what I don’t get about his “tax plan”. If everyone is able to CHOOSE to keep with the existing tax code, does that mean:

1. The big corporations can stay on the current plan & keep all of the loopholes and pay little or no taxes (i.e., GE)?
2. The 50% of people that don’t contribute a dime in fed taxes, still won’t pay a dime but get a refund?
3. How does he address the “underground” economy, who don’t report, and don’t pay?

Maybe I’m just a bit slow on this one…… but I’ll admit, I just don’t get it!

At Perry’s website, he offers a summery of the plan, and the full plan, which is not that long, i think its only about 5 pages of reading and is easy to pick your way through to find out anything you are conserned about.
Also he has a sample tax form.

No, Cain’s plan throws out the current tax code for his new one.

Mr. EMT
Guest
Mr. EMT

The option to remain on current codes does not apply to corporations. Only families and small business.
I never heard Cain take what Perry does into consideration with revamping the codes.

Under the new flat tax system, taxpayers will have the ability to opt-in to the new system or remain under the existing tax code. Those families or small business owners who made investment decisions years ago based upon the structure of the existing tax code will have the freedom to remain in the current system if they so choose. And taxpayers who desire a simpler, less expensive system are free to move into the optional new flat tax system and take advantage of a postcard-sized tax return that could be filled out in minutes.

You should also check out the model of his new tax form. He wasnt kidding about making it so easy tim geithner could do it.

Thanks for answering Q#1. But when I looked it up on Perry’s site it says “The myriad tax breaks, loopholes, and so-called tax expenditures available within the corporate tax code need to be phased out over time…” Sounds very fuzzy to me and once again, a promise for “sometime” in the future they’ll address it. In the meantime, all the loopholes and perks remain for those with lobbyist and connections. Doesn’t sound like reform to me.

2. The 50% of people that don’t contribute a dime in fed taxes, still won’t pay a dime but get a refund? 3. How does he address the “underground” economy, who don’t report, and don’t pay? 2) Im guessing you are referring to people who are employed by the government in some form or capacity. I thought the number was actually higher than that myself but that is just based on what I see every day. I don’t honestly think we are going to see any answer from any candidate on why they are getting refunds when they are paid with taxes. But speaking for the soldiers standpoint, that makes under a thousand a month as an E1 last I checked. If the government takes out more than they are due from that salary, are they not entitled to a refund? Im not sympathetic to politicians and bureaucrats who get… Read more »

2 Was referring to people who for the most part get paid in cash, but do report only a fraction of their income, low enough that they didn’t have a “taxable” income. It may have been just a one time deal, but I do know of people who got checks from the govt. just for reporting, but didn’t pay a dime in taxes. (It may have been part of the “stimulus”…… I’m not sure.)

Mr. EMT

I think we seriously got a long list of other bigger problems facing us that need immediate addressing before we get to the point of being concerned over crossing i’s and t’s to this extent.
Like i said, that is what the IRS is for, keeping a list of who is naughty or nice and making them do an audit for reporting something that they shouldnt.

I think people who make under a certain income shouldnt have to fear reprisal for making under the table non taxed income.
Its one thing if you are upper class and cutting corners.
But if you are struggling to put food on your family’s table and live on a 1500 a month budget?

I think Mr. Cain’s plan is the only one to address it. Although he’s gotten a lot of heat for 9-9-9 the last 9 captures the underground economy. BUT I also believe with this structure (9% corporate tax rate) the “cost of goods sold” would go down which would allow for lower consumer prices and companies to maintain or improve profit margins at the same time.

I think most corporations will do better under a flat scheme. You have to remember how many millions GE spends to maintain their status. Being able to expense capital investments, take deductions for R&D, and pay a flat tax will save them a lot of money in the long run.

The underground economy will always exist, even if we allow the left to succeed in bringing their totalitarian dreams to fruition.

If you can get paid in cash under the table, or do reciprocal favors, you know what to do, right?

Rick Perry did very well. I sent an email last night to Huck to stop making fun of Perry, Perry may have had some verbal gaffes, but none lead to the death of innocent people by pardoning convicted killers as Huck did. I’m sure I will not receive an answer.

Other sites have pointed out and now i have noticed that FNC has started to give better coverage of Obama, not honest coverage and the consesus is that once Rupert Murdock had all those problems in Britain, Ailes has taken the network programming over and it’s not the fair & balanced network it used to be. It’s becoming establishment media for Romney. Romney has been on Hannity several times but will not go on another show.
I don’t care what Dick Morris says anymore, he’s shown his true colors. He’s in it for Romney & Cain, forget the rest of the candidates as far as he’s concerned.

That’s why we have sites like this and others. We want a true conservative.

Mr. EMT

You can do a search on the web for “Huckabee touchback” and get overloaded with the information on it.
Basically he was proposing to reform immigration in such a way that the process would take days or weeks to get through, and then you would be a citizen. And under such a plan the illegals we have here could leave the country as illegals, and return (touchback) as citizens.

Also there may be some truth to what you say about Morris.
Not sure why anyone puts stock in much of what he says considering his former employers. He is good at saying what he is paid to say, same thing can be said about newt.

Wallace wants to make it clear- about class warfare… At 11min. 25sec. – Chris Wallace asks – “But, I just want to make it clear, you’re saying, that, yes, the wealthy, the job creators as you call them, they are going to end up getting bigger tax cuts under the Perry plan than the middle class. ” An you’re ok with that.” Rick Perry responds – “I want to see people investing. “Again, I’m not for class warfare. “If somebody wants to go and push the class warfare issue and try to divide this country, I’m for bringing people together to create jobs and give Americans a better chance to take care of their families.” Perry concludes with a nod of his head. – – – – – – – – – A possible answer to a class warfare question.

Must be that class warfare has permeated society to such an extent that Mr. Wallace believes it is his obligation to help encourage those that think it is a social justice strategy worthy of promoting.

Slackers…

Yes, the essence of the hurdle.

As someone said, “If that is the problem, then that is where the solution is.”

Or, to change the metaphor, as someone said, “If there is a lot of manure in here, there must be a pony in here somewhere.”

Of course, it’s more serious than that because there are so many slackers and there is so little time.

For Mr. Wallace to sit there and make a comment that 2.5 million new jobs isn’t enough is absurd. We have lost that many jobs every year since Obama was elected. Once those reduced regulations, the job creators regain confidence and the energy sector is rebooted the economy, revenues, and employment increases this national state of angst will be over.

Mr. EMT
Guest
Mr. EMT

adding a million jobs in a flagging industry such as our Energy sector will also tip over a domino affect on other industries and the economy affecting everyone to some extent and degree.
Cheaper energy will result in lower overhead cost of doing business for everyone, allowing them to invest into their company and hire more people.
More people hired = more money in the economy buying things that put more people to work.
Love Perry for saying, Make what Americans Buy, buy what Americans Make.

I have no doubt there will be a tremendous amount of residual economic activity once the energy sector is let loose. No one can calculate the exact figures but the optimism alone will generate more jobs than anything this current administration has achieved.

Obama is going to get rolled.

Your whole presidency has been a lie.” That should be just about enough to put the nail in that idiot’s coffin. Haha!

Yes, but were both of his parents citizens when he was born? That is what is required to be a natural born citizen.

I am sure there are strongly principled conservatives out there that have not attracted the national spotlight.
I.e., palin was a diamond in the rough til mccain found her and sold her to us as a conservative wrapped in red white and blue ribbon.

Earlier on in the campaign I even heard NM Governor Susan Martinez being tossed out for consideration.

Obamao was apparently not the first one to violate or attempted to violate the natural born clause. Chester Arthur I believe was.

Violating the Constitution as Hussein did and then covering it up with the help of Congress does not set precedent, just because no one in our entire government has the honesty and courage to prosecute.

You do realize being “born here” is not all that is required to being a citizen right?

Natural Born, second generation American. Native Born, such as someone who was born on American soil then naturalized and duel citizen.

Let’s asses the field based on your logic:

Cain – can’t speak for 10 minutes without putting his foot in his mouth.
Romney – obviously a slimy lizard.
Santorum – nice guy with the personality of a dentist.
Bachmann – a flake.
Ron Paul – makes Charlie Sheen look sane.

That leaves Newt Gingrich who is clearly the best debater of the bunch. So you must be for Newt Gingrich??
