Respites

I call him ‘Male-in’

'Wonder Twins power, activate. Form of, a Male-in'

Mr. Perry brought the Fed directly into the campaign debate Monday night by saying it would be “almost … treasonous” for the central bank to play politics by expanding the money supply.

“If this guy prints more money between now and the election,” Mr. Perry said in Cedar Rapids Monday night, without naming Mr. Bernanke, “I don’t know what y’all would do to him in Iowa, but we—we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas.”

You know what’s really treasonous? Guys with a secession fetish.

If you remain unmoved about Perry please read these next four paragraphs. For me.

Religious conservatives in Texas were stunned in 2007 when Republican Rick Perry became the first governor in the country to order young girls to get a vaccine against a sexually transmitted virus that can cause cervical cancer.

The vaccine would encourage promiscuity, according to many conservatives, who had long supported Perry’s views against abortion and same-sex marriage.

It soon emerged that Perry was close to one of the lobbyists who was pushing for the order and who worked for the vaccine’s New Jersey-based manufacturer. That lobbyist, Mike Toomey, had served as Perry’s chief of staff and has since helped found a super PAC aimed at boosting Perry’s bid for the presidency.

Now Perry, who long defended the vaccine mandate, has reversed his position on the issue as he launches his GOP presidential bid, calling the order “a mistake” and saying he agrees with the Texas legislature’s decision to overturn it.

  1. I am definitely not unmoved by Perry….he scares me way more than Palin or Bachmann does, or W did. Unlike those inarticulate word salad twits, he seems to know what he’s doing, and will do dangerous things if in power. Let’s hope it never comes to that!

    Think Progress will not like anyone with an R beside their name, they do favor Obama and Obama has an actual Presidential record and the democrats had unfettered control 2009- Jan 2011 and look what it has wrought… Progressive ideas have been a bang up success.

    Here is more info about Perry. I’ll support him 100x over Obama any day of the week.
