Having trouble embedding this but The Right Scoop has it
Perry sounds good, and trust me, this is who he is. He is for small government, and deeply respects the Constitution. Again, I know, he has been my governor for a decade now. If you truly want a politician who will walk the walk, and not just talk, Perry is the guy you ought to be supporting.
The EPA is out of control, and Perry has fought them before as governor. Again, he did not talk about it, he has DONE IT! Perry talks about that in this interview, and also the Department of Education, which he wants to eliminate.
Forget the hourly polls, forget the rhetoric of the GOP establishment, forget those who tell us that ONLY Romney can win. Listen to the interview, check out the numerous video clips of Perry on this blog, check out his website. Rick Perry has a record, and that record TELLS YOU what he will do as president.
There are reasons that Texas has created over 1 million jobs while the country lost over 2 million jobs. The reasons are simple, low taxes, low regulations, and fewer government hoops to jump through. I have heard that Newt and Romney are the “smart” candidates. That they are “great debaters”. Yet their records indicate that they are not honest. We know that Romney is for the mandate in Obamacare, we know Newt praised that before. Perry has been very consistently against Obamcare. With Newt, or Mitt, you have to worry if they mean what they say. With Perry, you need not worry, he is who he is.
Sure, there are many who say, Perry cannot debate Obama, or that his campaign, according to Left-leaning Politico, is a mess. These folks point to Perry’s gaffes, while ignoring all the solid debates and great speeches Perry has had.
Frankly, I could not care less about polls, or what the political talking heads say. I know a leader when I see one, all I need do is examine the record of Rick Perry to know what he has done and WILL do if elected. I have heard Conservatives cry out for a no-nonsense president. I have heard them say, we are sick of DC insiders, tired of pork barrel spending, tired of politicians who say one thing then do another.
If you are serious about that, then Perry is your candidate. No, he is not your overly rehearsed slick talker, he is honest, and sincere. No, he does not stick his finger in the wind to decide how to answer questions. He is, in the end exactly the kind of Conservative we all have been calling for.
Perfect? No. Principled? Yes!
