    He said...



    If I didn't know where this quote was from, I'd say that sounds JUST like something Obama would say. Kudos to Rick Perry for recognizing that it's beneficial to everyone to put aside partisan politics to get the job done. Too bad this information will destroy his credibility with the Tea-vangelists.

    Also....

    Rick Perry used Obama's horrible stimulus money to pay for 97% of Texas's budget shortfall in fiscal year 2010.



    How awesome is that? He bitches and moans about government bailouts to win over the angry mobs and then uses that very same money to bail out his state. Now as he's running for President he's using the fact that his state is solvent as a platform for fiscal responsibility.

    Politician, through and through.

    Your "conservative success story" is only a success because of Democrat policies.
    For over 2 years we have seen the "benefits of liberalism" and now we have another 4 trillion added to the debt, 25 million unemployed and underemployed Americans, fewer jobs, and higher unemployment.

    What people like you don't seem to understand is that TX has taxpayers just like the rest of the country that funds these so called bailouts and TX has one of the largest Federal labor forces in the nation because of the military presence here. Like far too many you ignore that reality.

    What is it about liberalism that creates such loyalty and ignorance of free enterprise, capitalism, and PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY?

    Love how liberals distort the govt. bailouts and what the money went for, including Texans like you. Govt. expanded Medicaid and unemployment benefits that are funded by the states. How should states pay for Federal govt. mandates?

    Perfect. And it gives conservative Texas residents who want to Trumpet the "Texas Miracle" and claim that the stimulus bill accomplished nothing at all the perfect opportunity to swallow both feet.

    Can we cite Warren Buffet as a left winger?

    Anyone that calls for a tax increase and never sends in more than they are obligated to pay is a leftwinger. There is nothing to prevent Buffet from writing a check

    I guess, according to that logic, a state that fills 80% of its budget hole with federal stimulus money isn't really a conservative state?

    Do you listen to Mark Levin on talk radio? This is exactly what he espouses. Just curious.

    I'm not sure what would be more irresponsible. I'll have to start from the beginning.

    Candidate A was against the bail out. He stated it many times and if he was someone in position he voted against it. He was on the losing end of that arguement. Now his constituants are on the hook for this money. That is, they are going to have to pay it back. So the choice is to use it since it's your money or disregard it and pay for someone else to use it.

    Atheists don't agree with the reasons behind Christmas but they don't generally complain about getting the day off.

    It's not just Levin -- it's a standard conservative response. Which should tell you something about conservative's ability to think rationally.

    A bus is rolling down hill and its brakes are out. If all 50 bystanders agree to pitch in and push against the bus, they can keep it from going over a cliff. Only one person agrees to try and save the bus. He is a hypocrite if he doesn't let the bus roll over him. According to conservative "logic".
