Peddling Perry rumors on a national stage
AAS ^ | 8.28.2012 | Ken Herman

Posted on 08/28/2011 12:46:37 PM PDT by wolfcreek

Ray Sullivan called me last week. Sullivan, a longtime Rick Perry aide and now communications director for Perry's presidential campaign, has a problem. Sullivan's wife, Leslie, is a fundraiser for Mitt Romney. But that's not the problem Sullivan called me about.

Sullivan called about Robert Morrow. Morrow is a problem for Perry. And any problem for Perry is a problem for Sullivan. Morrow, from his Austin home, has become a key purveyor of nasty, unsubstantiated allegations about Perry's personal life. You may be aware of Morrow's recent full-page Austin Chronicle ad trolling for bad stuff about Perry.

"Here is what we are learning about Rick Perry," Morrow wrote in a recent late-night email listing unsubstantiated stuff about Perry and concluding with "I think it is just a matter of time before a credible source" comes forward to substantiate the rumors.

Sarah has been putting up with this kind of crap for three and a half years.

Sarah gives it back to them in spades.

But all CFR-Ric can do is cry to Daddy and have him fix it?

If your little baby can't take it, maybe he needs to pick up his toys and go home.

So, we have all heard which candidates that you are not supporting. Why don’t you tell us which CANDIDATE, you are supporting and why.

Or is it Obama?

"The statists believe in a powerful, activist central government that advances a radical secular agenda in the name of compassion. The hide behind misguided notions of empathy and push token talking points about fighting for the little guy, all the while empowering the federal government to coercively and blatantly undermine state-, local-, and self-governance.” pg. 320

“The truth is, I don’t care what party the statist is in. The fact of the matter is, it is the statist, and those who support or enable him, who is the problem. For too long he has undermined this country by empowering the national government at the expense of liberty. An America defined by the statist in Washington is an America doomed to fail.” ” pg. 338

(both quotes from Perry, Rick; (2010-11-15). Fed Up!: Our Fight to Save America from Washington.

Anyone who has a problem with that has a problem with ME because he has NAILED what I've been posting about on this site since March of 1998!

You're the one who's babbling.

I was perfectly clear in what I said; CFR-Ric is a wimp who can't take care of his own business.

Sarah isn't and can.

My favorite story about this fruitcake, Morrow is the one where he says that the worst thing Perry has done was to go after the "peaceful, homeschool family" of Warren Jeffs.

If there was ever a better reason to support Perry, this is it. If no one knows of Warren Jeffs, it's time to start googling.

Jeffs deserves the TX version of justice.

Did you notice ~ the reporter who put together the piece on the nutcase said: "At this newspaper, we're not much interested in public officials' personal lives unless those personal lives affect public duties or offer evidence of rank hypocrisy."

Think about that a second ~ frankly almost none of us care about hypocrisy recognizing that it exists more often in the mind of the observer than in actual practice.

However, Moslems care about hypocrisy and Mohammad directed them to "kill the hypocrites".

In that case people do get concerned about Moslems calling others hypocrites. So, what about this reporter. Anyone have any idea if he has Moslem connections? Should he be turned in to the Secret Service perhaps ~ Rick has some level of protection already.

Since Ron Paul has not denounced Morrow, (that I know of, anyway) that must mean it’s ok with Paul if Warren Jeffs raped little girls. Anyone defending Morrow must think it’s acceptable to rape little girls.

All this crap coming down on Perry, but Obama escaped even the most casual inspection until it was too late. And for all those who think Obozo is squeaky clean, why has he spend all that money sequestering his past? You don't do that unless you have something to hide.

Hey I searched "Rick Perry's dad pic" on Bing, which is pretty ,much garbage and the first result was from a gay dallas mag with a pic of Perry eating a corn dog, the title said "Rick Perry deep throats a corn dog"

That was the very first search result on Bing for "Rick Perry's dad pic".

The bigger problem with the likes of Marrow is that he has collaborators here on FR who operate under the guise of being Palin supporters.

Its clearly obvious who they are, their tactics give their hand away.

As an “also Palin” supporter, I find it hard to believe Sarah Palin would approve of those PDS coyotes, for it surely takes away from her image.

I have a friend who ran into Paul supporters in New Orleans...they are nothing but dangerous thugs. He said they threatened him, his wife and his property. He said he’d never again be around them without his gun.

Perry’s people already have a dossier on Morrow.

I think he’s just a unemployed conspiracy theorist with a nestegg and a lot of time to start trouble.

One of the few times I’ve seen Mr. hocndoc lose his temper in public was when Morrow called me “ignorant.” Morrow’s about 6-8 inches taller than the Mr., but I saw my husband ready to prove his theory that age and cunning triumphs youth and enthusiasm any day.

We did have to come to an agreement that I could fight my own fights or we’d have to go our separate ways at political events. He’s agreed to let me FReep the twits to my heart’s content. (I’m sorry, but debating the rabid nuts who think they’re (big L)ibertarians is sort of like shooting fish in a barrel.)

Actually, the more I think about this... I don’t think they actually are Palin supporters. They are Paul supporters trying to drive a wedge between the Perry supporters and the Palin supporters to the benefit of their man Ron Paul.

Think about it. Their MO fits a Paul supporter far more than a Palin supporter. We are being played.

After 11 years of reforms by Perry, Texas still ranks at the bottom of many educational indicators. Texas has the fewest percentage of adults with high school diplomas, compared to the other U.S. states.

Texas is also ranked low in high school graduation rate.

Texas is 49th in verbal SAT scores in the nation and 46th in average math SAT scores. Can we trust him to reform Washington?

“The bigger problem with the likes of Marrow is that he has collaborators here on FR who operate under the guise of being Palin supporters.”

??. I didn't know that. It now makes a little more sense though because I read the Palin threads and about 80% of her supporters are decent people doing nothing but supporting their candidate so I enjoy reading some of their posts. The other 20% are rabid when they post on the Perry threads and it boggled my mind because Palin isn't like that so it was turning me off to see some of her supporters behaving like nothing but junior high trouble makers. Now I at least know that some of them aren't in fact Palin supporters but ones who probably hate both Palin and Perry and want someone else in the White House in 2012.

Thanks

Same thing happened to us at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference. We were followed after general session by people holding beers and in bathing suits yelling Ron Paul behind us until we reached the elevators. Ugh. Ron Paul has some cleaning up to do..

A lot of these PDS (perry derangement syndrome) posters seem to have a lot of time on their hands, and sound amazingly similar in their borderline psychotic attacks on Perry.

I have A LOT more free time than most and follow this particular board very closely and I have never seen such a coordinated effort to take down someone than I have by this fairly small bunch of individuals. Either they have their own anti-perry ping list or they are all the same conspiracy theory psycho posting under numerous names.

NO...Paul loves those supporters and is thrilled with them. My friend is in some very savy political circles in Louisiana and has found how Paul welcomes these types. Pays them to go to these events, pays for their rooms, meals, transportation, etc and whatever their little hearts desire. In Iowa, exactly the same with these thugs.

It looks like you posted to the wrong thread. This thread is about an article regarding the guy collecting unsubstantiated rumors about Rick Perry.

Unless, that is, you are admitting that what you area posting is more unsubstantiated half-truths about Perry, then I guess it would belong here.

OTherwise, you should go look for the thread discussing the Texas educational system — there were several posted where Obaam’s team lead by Arne Duncan were peddling similar stuff to what you are improperly posting in this thread.
