    Who is Rick Perry’s biggest supporter?

    Who is Rick Perry’s biggest supporter?

    See for yourself

    My what a difference a few years makes.

    Coinciding with his speech Wednesday, Governor Perry’s campaign released a video highlighting their “biggest supporter.”

    The trolltastic effort comes after Donald Trump publicly criticized Governor Perry earlier this month for failing to secure Texas’ border; criticisms to which Perry responded.

    During a speech Wednesday, Governor Perry took a moment to address Trump’s candidacy. This time, Perry wasn’t so polite.

    “In times of trouble, there are two types of leaders: repairers of the breach, and sowers of discord. The sower of discord foments agitation, thrives on division, scapegoats certain elements of society, and offers empty platitudes and promises. He is without substance when one scratches below the surface.”

    And then he dropped the hammer:

    “He offers a barking carnival act that can be best described as Trumpism: a toxic mix of demagoguery, mean-spiritedness and nonsense that will lead the Republican Party to perdition if pursued.

    Let no one be mistaken: Donald Trump’s candidacy is a cancer on conservatism, and it must be clearly diagnosed, excised and discarded.

    It cannot be pacified or ignored, for it will destroy a set of principles that has lifted more people out of poverty than any force in the history of the civilized world…the cause of conservatism.

    I feel so strongly about this because I believe conservatism is the only way forward for this country.”

    In summary, how DARE that evil Trump lower my support percent below the Fox debate threshold. Only I can save conservativism by lowering tuition for illegals in Texas.

    This is what happens when the party does not understand what the base wants. Perry is such a dumb*** that he doesn’t connect the dots. Attacking Trump is about the lamest thing you can do. But what do you want from him…he hired Steve Schmidt as his campaign advisor.

    At this point all of the candidates need to step back and take stock of what is going on. Trump is sucking all the oxygen out of them and they are not getting it.A nimble mind will figure this out…unfortunately we have too many establishment types running the party and running for president.

      Maybe we all need to forward them copies of Prof. Jacobson’s recent NRO column… and a mirror.

        Pretty much. While all of the other republicans in the field seem to be talking about how to play nice with everyone, Trump is the only one in the field saying that we actually need to deal with the widespread lawlessness the current administration has created.

        If he gets elected, maybe he’ll do something about it, or maybe he won’t, but right now he is the only one even bothering to promise to do something about it.

        You can’t trust a politician to keep the promises they make, so why would we expect them to deal with the hard problems they outright refuse to even think about?

          Trump isn’t a Republican and he certainly isn’t a conservative. You’re being hornswaggled.

          Trump favors national health care and gave heavily to ‘rats, including Hillary and her “foundation” until 4 years ago when he decided to run as ‘pub. He’s flip-flopped on abortion and he never talks about guns. It’s illegals all day, every day, and always omitting the fact that his companies have hired thousands of illegals. His financial filings for the race show twice what he’s actually worth, according to Forbes, and he’s screwed many investors through multiple CH.11 bankruptcies. He’s a smoky backroom dealmaker born with a silver spoon that allowed him to dodge the draft.

          It sickens me that conservatives would even consider this man. What’s going to happen is that he’s going to get enough support from fools to run 3rd-party and throw the election to Hillary, his old buddy, which is very likely the plan in the first place. Instead, we could have a really good president, such as Scott Walker or Rick Perry or John Kasich would be. But no.

          Conservatives think Obama is a bloviator, which he is, but now they’re listening to a professional blowhard bloviator. I guess as long as the Pied Piper is playing a tune they like, they’ll follow him to political oblivion while we suffer Hillary’s extension of Obama’s destruction.

      “This is what happens when the party does not understand what the base wants.”

      The GOP knows exactly what the base wants, but that isn’t what the US Chamber of Commerce wants, nor what their big donors want. Whom do we suppose they represent? Us? They lied with every promise made before November 2014, and have done nothing but cave to Obama ever since. Besides, Jeb Bush and John Kasich (nobody can figure out why Kasich’s running for president… he’s been GOP-annointed as Jeb’s VP, that’s why – do not doubt me on this, as Rush might say), but Bush and Kasich have both told the conservative base of the GOP that they neither need or want their support, not because they don’t understand what they/we want, but because they do.

      Cruz has figured it out.

    This is really pathetic from Governor Perry.

    Trump is absolutely correct on the issues that he has focused on, which is why he is currently leading in the polls. That, combined with the fact that he has taken a firm position and refused to back down despite the frothing mad attacks from the Left, the Left’s media, and from establishment type R’s.

    Does Perry criticize him on the substance of his position? No, barely even alludes to it, much less disputes it (never mind refutes it).

    So, what does he do? He attacks him personally, with insults, like a Democrat would.

    Pathetic.

    Before any of you start generating enthusiasm for President Rick Perry, do a web search using word combinations which include Karim Aga Khan, Grover Norquist, Samah Alrayyes, Muslim Histories and Cultures Program, and Ismaili Jamathkana Center.

    America does not need another Barack Hussein Obama in the Oval Office, regardless of his nominal party affiliation.
