Nomination Excitations: Perry/Thrust, They All Palin In Comparison

17 August 2011 @ 17:58

-Rick Perry certainly has been getting a lot of attention in the past several days.  I must say that I found nothing incredibly wrong with this remark [tip of the fedora to Joseph Lawler]:

If this guy prints more money between now and the election, I don’t know what y’all would do to him in Iowa, but we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas. Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treacherous, or treasonous, in my opinion.

Indeed it is when the people doing it are committed to ‘fundamentally transforming’ The United States into a Socialist State — those quoted words are Obama’s and it is blatantly obvious he has been trying to do just that since he took the Oath Of Office [is it not treachery to swear an oath you clearly don’t intend to follow?].

Now, as to the word ‘treasonous’, I’m not sure it applies to Ben Bernanke — it certainly does to Barack Hussein Obama because anyone who wants to ‘fundamentally transform’ America, by definition of the phrase, wants to discard The Constitution, which is THE body of fundamental laws of the land.

I do wish, however, Rick Perry would have used, say, the phrase ‘utterly irresponsible’ and held those two words for when Obama goes and does something truly awful [I’m sure the Governor wouldn’t have to wait too long] and unconstitutional.

Perry: So Simple Even A Caveman Could Endorse Him.

-Lancelot Link Burri, The Troglopundit, comes as close to endorsing Rick Perry as a caveman could without saddling-up.  In a recent posting, he lists the reasons why.  This one caught my attention:

Second: how can you not love this line in Perry’s Wikipedia page:

Perry was a prankster in college. He once placed chickens in the closet of an upperclassman over Christmas, and also utilized M-80 firecrackers and knowledge of plumbing to frighten students on the toilet.

I guess there were a lot of budding plumbers in my elementary school, too.

Figures that this is the kind of thing that would appeal to a Trog.

-Michelle Malkin, however, will not be endorsing Governor Perry anytime soon, as evidenced by the column on him by her published today.  A highlight:

I’m far less aggravated by Gov. Perry’s injudicious toss-off remarks than I am by his profoundly troubling, liberty-curtailing actions in office and his fresh batch of specious rationalizations for them. My syndicated column today dissects Perry’s recent, so-called “walk backs” of his odious Gardasil vaccine mandate for children. I’ve written and reported on vaccine bullies in the schools and on informed parental authority over vaccines previously. But as you’ll see from my column below, Perry defenders who dismiss critics as “single-issue” activists are willfully blind to the Gardasil disgrace’s multiple layers of rottenness….

While Perry and his campaign staff have now paid lip service to making a “mistake” in shoving the executive order down families’ throats, they remain defiant in defending the decree and Perry’s zealous, big government overreaching. From the latest story on Perry’s “reversal” in the Washington Post: “Perry campaign spokesman Mark Miner dismissed the criticism. Governor Perry has always stood on the side of protecting life, and that is what this issue was about…”

Oh, no it wasn’t. Please read this, get informed, pass it on, and make sure that you don’t fall for a purported cure to our political ills that’s worse than the power-grabbing disease in the current White House.

Gov, you got some real ‘splainin’ to do.

-I saw Sarah Palin on Hannity Friday night and she sure as Hell acts like somebody who is going to run.

The thing that really impressed me was how articulate she was — none of the disjointed or out-of-order phrasing on her sentences. Methinks she’s been practicing.

Jeffrey Lord’s take:

…former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin dropped into the Iowa State Fair to say that she is indeed considering a presidential run….and the place went nuts. Calling for an “American Restoration” her appearance drew noisy cheers from the surrounding crowd when she suggested among other things (and here she pointed to the crowd) that it was the job of Americans to be “holding those liars accountable” who insist big government is the answer.

Time moves quickly, and what was interesting in Palin’s appearance was not just the crowd response. It was almost that in her long absence from the presidential campaign, leading many to suggest she was in fact not a candidate, rank-and-file Republicans had scanned the potential candidates and suddenly realized it was Palin they had loved all along.

I would highly recommend taking a gander at the two segments:



-Smitty had this to say about her on Saturday:

…she has already borne the brunt of an unbridled propaganda assault without crumbling. The more the minions of the Progressive Cthulhu strike at her, the stronger she becomes, and the more openly craven and stupid they appear. She rises like a phoenix from their ashes.

As I wrote back in June in another Nomination Excitation:

…Mrs. Palin…possesses a deeply ingrained Common Sense and a toughness of will worthy of a woman of the frontier, those brave gals who helped tame the wilderness and build this country.

I would be disappointed if she didn’t run because I think Mrs. Palin the only one who will fight this battle like George Patton – take it to the enemy, guns a-blazing, balls to the wall.

It’s time for a showdown with the Left, time to launch an all-out attack. L’audace, l’audace, te jours l’aduace!

We’re surrounded. That simplifies the problem.

    Most everyone I know has pulled up chair at the Perry table..

    The jury is still out for me.. The Guardacel Executive Order is a huge red flag for me..

      I’m looking into whether he, like Herman Cain, is playing Dupe to the Jihadists.

    Frederick the Great, eh?

    Actually, it was: “Il nous faut de l’audace, encore de l’audace, toujours de l’audace!”

    George C’s line sounds better though. We’ll see which of these contenders get’s off the best one.

    As for Malkin saying Perry is worse than His Wholly Reluctance…well, I beg to differ.

      There is actually a dispute over the exact quote. Also, old Freddy is known to have said and written it on several occasions. Further, when in doubt, I go with Georgie.
