LC Tallulah, GLOR, mentioned it in a comment before we could even get around to it, but credit where credit is due.

Ace makes a strong case for Governor Rick Perry and we urge you to read it. Yes, it’s Ace, and it tends to get long-winded (which is one reason why we love his site because he reminds us of our own endless digressions), but you owe it to yourselves to read it because every point he makes is a good one.

So go read. We’ll still be here when you come back.

We shan’t try to summarize what he’s saying, just highlight a few points why we agree:

1) Perry’s character is rock solid. He’s a guy who worked his way up, who has no affair skeletons, alleged or proven, in his closet to make up easy targets for the liberal media who only seem to care about morals where Republicans are concerned.

2) His “fumbling” in the debates and the OgabeMedia’s narrative is irrelevant. No Republican candidate for any office has ever been painted as anything but a buffoon by the Mediots, and people are getting used to it. Look back, if you’re old enough to worry about the grey in your beard. Reagan, of all presidents, was painted as a bumbling fool. The voters are on to that game and, besides, in the situation that our nation is in, nobody really wants a game show contestant. They want somebody with a record of success.

3) Speaking of success, there is no denying that Texas has created half of all of the new jobs created in this nation since the ObamaDepression started. What do you think matters to people trying to make ends meet these days? Why do you think that corporations and citizens are fleeing from blue states to Texas? Do you really think that they give a good shit about how “cerebral” and “slick” Newt or ObamNey is? No. They want to be able to get a job so they can feed their families.

4) Stack the three of them up against each other. Mittens is a slick used car salesman who will say anything you want him to hear. The only, ONLY time he’s ever stuck to one particular position is in his defense of RomneyCare, which is currently busy bankrupting the state that he once misgoverned. “Mittens, He’ll Only Stick By The Wrong Solutions!”. One heck of a campaign slogan. Newt is a smart guy with encyclopedic knowledge of just about whatever happened in this nation since the Revolutionary War. Only problem is, the OgabeMedia aren’t going to talk about brains if he’s the candidate opposing their Anointed One because they know they’re going to lose. It’s going to be “All Newt Infidelity, All The Time.” And if you think for a second that they’re going to let the great unwashed peek into the shallow intellect of their Black Jesus as compared to Newt’s, you’re dumber than a sack of rocks. We’ll for once see a campaign where the Liberal Media is talking about nothing but moral values, something they usually ignore because they don’t have enough column space left over from talking about the wonders of depravity. Add to that that Newt is known for having great ideas that don’t really lead anywhere, a history of flip-flopping almost as bad as MittBama, and you really can’t find anything solid to attach to a Newt candidacy. Newt is a smart guy, but he’s also utterly flimsy. What the American people needs right now isn’t a candidate with great ideas about moon bases and orbital mirrors, although we agree that those are worthwhile pursuits, but concrete ideas as how to get their jobs and their income back.

Perry has all of that. It’s dead simple: Get DC out of our lives, let states experiment if they want, but don’t make it a federal mandate, kill regulations that kill American jobs, leave us the fuck alone to pursue the American dream.

And he can prove it, as the longest serving Governor of any American state, that it works.

It’s not just state pride when I steal a phrase and say that “the rest of y’all can go to Hell. As for myself, I’m going to Texas.”

Perry. For states’ rights. For American pride and exceptionalism. For individualism, for the belief that we ARE that shining city on a hill and that we, through simple measures, not endless fiddling around with slowing the decay, can get back to that which built what we are today and which we stand to lose if we don’t stop the decay, right now.

Thatisall.

Perry ain’t my favorite politician in the world… but I’d vote for him over Romney, Newt, or God-forbid, Obama. I do think he needs some debate help if he is going to have any chance at this thing. It’s not that I think he’s dumb, and yeah, I agree, the media will paint him that way no matter what… but… Read more »

I’ll be opting for Perry in the primary and hopefully in the general election.

Any speculation re: his running mate?

If Perry, Gingrich, or any of them could turn the gaffs and fumbles into razor-sharp comedy gold, the way Reagan usedta, they’d have a real, fighting chance. While the mediots won’t ever be swayed and will continue their assaults and depredations, it’s the voters who sadly still get a lot of their info from the MSM who we have to… Read more »

FrankOK @ #6: If Perry wins the nomination there is a plethora of candidates with like minded views that he can choose from such as; 1. Sen Jim Demint from South Carolina would be a great choice. He has great experience and he is considered to be the defacto leader of the Tea Party in the Senate. Plus Perry wouldn’t… Read more »

Emp Misha, Watching this election I was thinking of the similarities between my home state of Tennessee and Texas. Both of our states have no state income tax and both of our states are right to work states. Both our states share a great love for Football and country music. Both our states are world famousfor our BBQ, although it… Read more »

TN has better pork BBQ. Texas has better beef – ribs & brisket. Go to KC for pork ribs, though.

One of the things Perry should do is start talking to those he would put into the various cabinet positions. Right off the bat, he should ask John Bolton if he would be interested in the SecState job. He should also say that if he doesn’t win the nomination, he would hope whoever did on the Republican side would seriously… Read more »

As you said: Newt is smart, but “FLIMSY”. Unlike Obama, Newt has some amount of wit, but like Ogabe, he seems afflicted with the hubris of someone who is told too much, that he is the smartest guy in the room. He has been a college professor, a Speaker of the (whore) House, and his executive experience is…. what, again?… Read more »

I was leaning heavily for Cain, but he’s out…the reason fair or not, I doubt we’ll ever know for sure. Mitts…I just can’t get past the picture of Kerry with a R after his name. Too polished and aloof. Gingrich, yeah, he’s too flighty. I’d love any debate (I’m sure Obambi would only do one, and only if it sponsored… Read more »

Thanks mucho for the hat tip! And I’m SO glad you put this on the front burner for people to read. Perry’s numbers are inching upwards again, as the Newt fad fades a bit. Every Single Candidate we put up will face the Leftist industrial shredder: I recall Garrison Keillor’s rant (the poisonous pit viper, a millionaire Stalinist who made… Read more »

Okay, here’s the fuckwad [pardon my language, but it fits] Garrison Keillor, with an example of what our enemies think of us. Feel his hatred. See his bigotry and note its parts: “The party of Lincoln and Liberty was transmogrified into the party of hairy-backed swamp developers and corporate shills, faith-based economists, fundamentalist bullies with Bibles, Christians of convenience, freelance… Read more »
