Rick Perry: What we have is a soft president

In an interview on Special Report Rick Perry was asked, among other things, about Obama’s comments that Americans are getting soft (which I believe is a misrepresentation of what Obama said). His response was that we do have bad tax and regulation policies but Americans aren’t soft; what we have is a soft president.



Here’s the full interview:

I read and heard that only one percent of the illegals use the instate tuition rate. That is nothing.
Is it anything but that George W Bush was from TX that made Obmaa reruse to declare TX a FEMA emergency months ago? I knew who Rick Perry as at the time but he was not running for the GOP nomination. Does anyone know why Obama refused emergency $ to TX?

It’s not so much that Bush is from Texas but that Texas is full of Texans who voted Republican in 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010 and will vote Republican in 2012.

That shows us what petty man occupies the White House now, to use the fact that TX votes republican instead of D denies them FEMA funds, I am in MA and know that TX has had no rain this year and fires. I know that MA has FEMA funds because we are suffering from Deval Patrick as governor. Deval is an Obama political twin. In The Weekly Standard, the late Dean Barnett wrote that in March 2008 that Deval is like Obama except that Deval is short and doughy and often sounds like he inhaled helium when he speaks. It was a great comparision.

So a “soft” president kills Osama Bin Ladin and scores of other Al Qaeda leaders, when a “hard” president Bush failed to do so in 8 years.s Give a “soft” president any day!

If a “soft” president kills Osama Bin Ladin, and scores of other Al Qaeda leaders – when a “hard” president Bush failed to capture them during his 8 year; then give me a “soft” president, any day!

Kind of a non-sequtur. None of Perry’s buildup led to the conclusion of ‘soft.”

Whoever will make the best candidate will be the one who gets the most negative coverage in the press.

Perry criticising Romney for being on “different sides” of the same issue, while Perry fails to note he campaigned for Al Gore. And Fox can’t bring itself to challenge Perry on his lies regarding what Mitt Romney wrote in his book. This dumb hick thinks we’re all ignorant.

I’m impressed Perry took such a big hit… Gardisil had an opt out, and the entire legislature, sans 4 people, voted for in state tuition for illegals. So both issues have get out of jail cards and he still took a big hit. I think he’ll recover. Mitt is too damn stiff and rehearsed and has been running too hard for too long.

With free public education, college scholarships, instate tuition, free healthcare, automatic citizenship for anchor babies, tax exempt wages, drivers licenses, and judicial sanctuary they will get in like fruit flies onto a banana peel. Fence or no fence.

Take all that away and replace it with immediate arrest and deportation for violation of our immigration laws, they will stay home. Fence or no fence.

I appreciate that John. Yet isn’t it such simple common sense? As our heads begin to clear the fog, I have great faith in Americans. We will take back our country.

Governor Perry said that a fence all the way across the Texas-Mexico border from Brownsville to El Paso would not work well and he’s right. The Feds funded a fence across the entire southern border, beginning in Brownsville. It hasn’t quite worked out as planned. Just as Governor Perry said.

It has worked well in California: it has considerably reduced assaults to border patrol agents by illegal immigrants. A fence is worth the expense if it helps protect the boots on the ground from violence.

(Michelle already knows that.) Separate planes, separate fashion consutants and seriously soft on security in ALL regards at all borders…ask Jan Brewer. OBAMA is my “high value target”.
