Barbara Espinosa Is A Rick Perry Fan

She links his announcement as a candiate for POTUS. She also debunks the “Too Many Texans” argument, saying that neither

George H.W. Bush nor President George W. Bush were TEXANS. They were born in Yankee land and migrated to Texas. Yankee’s think different than a true born and breed Texan, best way to splain it is…You’re not from Texas…You were born in Texas and to be a Texan is a State of Mind.. A Yankee can never achieve a Texan state of mind..

What I find fascinating about the Too Many Texans argument is that it comes from the same type of folks that voted for Bubba and would cheerfully support Hillary. Or kept Kennedy in the Senate far too long, and show no signs of learning in the case of Kerry.

Discussing politics with this sort of person becomes tedious because they’re typically on the Left, which implies that they don’t believe in anything but political power, and offer wildly insincere arguments. At the core, their argument is “Shut up“.

I mean, as badly as I’d like to consider Jeb Bush on his merits, I just can’t stomach the notion of dynastic politics.

    She also said:If Americans elect Governor rick Perry to the Presidency they will get an honest to God dyed in the wool TEXAN.. Where bull shit walks and money talks..They will also get a skilled politician with the looks of a movie star or TV personality, the charm of a Texas gentleman a Southern preacher’s oratory with a cowboy’s swagger, matched by a disarming candor and sense of humor.

    Hey, I’d love to write the commercials comparing the kind of economy we had with a TX governor and Republican congress (not even a filibuster proof one… and at least half RINO) compared with what we’ve got now. Maybe Ladd Ehlinger would like to take on that project.

    There’s something making the rounds to the effect he’s a little too cozy with Muslims. Don’t know if there’s anything to it or not, but be on the lookout.

    And too loose on immigration.  He has a lot of ‘splainin’ to do.

    If both those things are true I hope Bachmann, or somebody, hits him hard and knocks him out early, otherwise all he’s going to do is drain off just enough support from Bachmann to enable Romney to glide right in there. I have to wonder if that might be his main intention after all. Then he get rewarded by Romney with a cushy diplomatic post, or maybe VP.

    I agree.   We don’t want another McCain sliding in like last time.  Romney is not who he portrays himself as.  NE Republican == backdoor liberal.  Can you spell BROWN?  

    I guess I’d take Perry over Romney, BUT, we need a real Conservative in the WH.

    All the others, in my book, Palin in comparison to Sarah.

    You and me, both, Bob.  Amen to a Palin.
