Watch the video.
It's Rick Perry in his own words.
But only an idiot can believe Rick Perry is a conservative.
And if I may add.

And eighteen years before he became president, Ronald Reagan was a democrat. I guess if FR existed then, you folks would be calling him a RINO.
I am not a Perry supporter, though he’s looking better than any of the others running, but I’ve been hearing nothing from his opponents here but Al Gore (supported him 25 years ago) and this.
If that’s all you guys’ve got, then you’re welcome to Obama. I have big disagreements with Perry on several issues, but man, what’s your alternative? Who is this miracle perfect conservative who’s going to beat Obama?
Obama is running in the 35 to 40% approval rating range. The question you should be asking is.
Who can’t beat Obama in 2012?!
It’s weird to see all this “RINO!” stuff in a place that is (rightly) hostile to the Republican party as it now is constituted. Such name-calling is a substitute for critical thought, and so brain-dead and meaningless when the definition of RINO is now “Whoever isn’t my candidate.”
We criticize the Republican party daily here—so what does “RINO” even mean anymore?
It means Perry is a RINO by any conventional measure of the term. I’m pretty sure of it.
Who can’t? Any Republican whose position is so out of the American mainstream that he or she virtually invites a spoiler to enter the race and steal away double digits of votes.
Perry looks like he would be the Cowboy dressed in black.
I wasn't "wrapping Perry in Reagan"--lying about someone you disagree with is a common tactic around here, but I won't stand for it. My comparison was simple and obvious, and your attempt to claim that Democrats were actually moderate Republicans--your EXACT words, as oppposed to your need to lie about my words--is so retarded it shows how desperate you are to just smear.
Reagan WAS a Democrat when I said. You can't see the simple point that people change over time.
If all you've got against Perry is stuff that's decades old, you must be really scared of him. What was your candidate doing back then?
You make good points, but the rhetoric about the vaccination thing is just kind of silly, with the ‘second-class citizen’ stuff. I don’t agree with that, but there’s plenty of precedence supported by Republicans when it comes to vaccination.
You have declared, via this letter, that Perry thanked Hillary for wanting to pass government run healthcare. Where does he say this? He never does.
If you pay attention to the things you post (when it's not the gay/lesbian websites that you like to post), you'll realize that this letter was written about TWO MONTHS after Clinton was inaugurated. Hillary was named the head of a task force for health care reform. Hillarycare was non-existent at this point. Perry was sending her a congratulatory letter on behalf of the agricultural sector in Texas for her efforts to head this task force. To say that he is thanking her for Hillarycare is an outright lie. The bill itself wasn't even posted until November 20, 2003, and the Senate took it up and killed it in August 2004.
But, don't let the facts get in the way.
