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?

Blech...

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?

No, because Democrats in Reagans time were actually moderate Republicans.

Democrats in Reagan's time didn't wholeheartedly support Abortion.

Democrats in Reagan's time didn't wholeheartedly support the Gay Agenda.

Democrats in Reagan's time didn't wholeheartedly support GUn Control.

Democrats in Reagan's time didn't wholeheartedly support wealth redistribution.

You're comparing a tire iron with an orange. You are making a false comparison.

Furthermore, Perry was a Democrat AFTER Reagan was President for 2 terms.

Perry was Al Gore's campaign Manager when Al Gore had an ACU average rating of 7.5 for the three previous years and during that time voted no on all the pro-life issues that were included in that ACU rating.

Sorry, but your attempt at wrapping Perry in Reagan, when the facts are presented, just doesn't fly.

For Perry, it means:

1. He supports Comprehensive Immigration Reform (Euphenism for Amnesty)
2. He signed a Pro-Homosexual Agenda Hate-Crimes Bill.
3. He is against a Border Fence/Wall
4. He is against interior enforcement of Illegal Immigration, A.K.A. AZ1070
5. HE is against using E-Verify as a tool to limit Illegal Immigrants getting jobs in Texas.
6. He tried to implement a mandated vaccine for a sexually-acquired disease for minor girls effectively implementing a Nanny-State approach that made parents 2nd class citizen where the vaccine was concerned.

That should be enough for any red-meat conservative to be able to see that taking Rick's actions in consideration and measuring them against his current campaign rhetoric makes any rational conservative queasy.

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.

Not for a vaccine for a sexually acquired disease there ain't.

Not historical evidence for that at all, and even if there had been, would it have been right?

Is this site about supporting Republicans right or wrong or about doing the right thing from a principled conservative perspective?

I swear on my life that you distort more than any other person I've ever seen on this site. First you have said Perry's gay, and now you're saying Perry supports Hillarycare.

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.

You can call it lying all you want, but what I posted still stands, trying to make excuses for Perry by erroneously comparing him to Reagan is not only a stretch given the differences in the Democrat party now and then, it is dishonest to continue to do so after the truth has been pointed out to you.

What do you need, a brick to hit you on the head to get you to wake up?

The whole letter was about Perry praising Hillary for attempting to reform Health Care, not only that, Perry then goes on to make suggestions to Hillary about things she needs to look into to reform?

Is English your 2nd language?

Notable & Quotable: Rick Perry defends support of Al Gore:...In an interview with Des Moines-based WHO radio on Monday, GOP presidential hopeful Rick Perry explained and defended some of his past positions, including his support for Al Gore’s failed presidential bid in 1988 for which he served as a state campaign coordinator:

Before you support a candidate, and before you post in support of him/her, you need to do your own research, otherwise, you look like either a campaign volunteer or a paid operative.

Wow you talk, but diarrhea just comes out of your mouth.

Five days after his inauguration in 1993, bill
Clinton named his wife to chair a newly established
President’s Task Force on National Health
Care Reform.
From that moment, the public had
the impression that Hillary Clinton and the task
force under her direction were responsible for coming up
with the administration’s reform plan. And when that plan
went down to defeat, many people assigned her a large share
of the blame.

This is not true. Perry has stated this was not true, and the Texas democrats who worked that campaign stated last week, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, that this was not true.

Let me also pointed out that what Perry said was a complete and utter lie:

This was Al Gore before he invented the Internet and got to be Mr. Global Warming,” Perry said. Growing up in rural Texas, he said, “I never met a Republican until I was 25. … In 1988 when you looked at the candidates, Al Gore was the most conservative candidate that was out there.” He pointed to Gore’s support for missile defense.

You know how you can tell?

Because Al Gore's American Conservative Union rating average for the 3 previous years before Perry ran his campaign in Texas was a 7.5% and all of the Abortions votes included in those three years of ratings he voted Pro-Abortion.

As a Democrat and a Politician, Perry would know this at the time. Either that, or he is real stupid.

Furthermore, for comparison, Barbara Boxer the extreme liberal Senator of California had I believe a 8% rating in 2010.

That tells you how liberal Al Gore was at the time when Perry lied about how conservative he was.

Perry is very clever if he wants to pay tuition to only those illegals in the process of becoming citizens. Since illegals
can not apply for citizenship, no one gets tuition! Very clever.

My 2 favorites are Bachmann and Cain at this juncture. If you do not
like Perry, by all means do not vote for him in primary. Just
tell us all the good things about your preferred candidate instead
of flaming other republicans.

Lastly, I am against any kind of amnesty for illegals, but
all polls show the #1 issue is economy & jobs. If 0Bama wins
2nd term, illegals will get amnesty one way or other, bet on it.

Yes, I'm lazy when it comes to hyperlinking. Here's the referenced article from earlier.

I'm not saying Perry didn't support Gore a quarter of a century ago, or that he didn't work for his campaign. However, saying he was Gore's campaign manager is incorrect.

And unlike Tempest, I don't use the gay/lesbian websites to cite articles.

Tempest, I read the letter. He commends Hillary for heading up the task force for healthcare reform. That's a far cry from saying Perry supports Hillarycare in April 1993 when Hillarycare didn't come in to existence until November 1993.

You can bang your head against that wall all you want, but the fact still remains that Hillarycare wasn't around until November 1993.

“How can Perry support Hillarycare in April 2003 when Hillarycare was non-existent until November 2003?”

For me, it’s a matter of commending HILLARY - it shows poor judgment. He should have known a controlling, socialist like Hillary would not do us any good.

“Again, your efforts are worthy,” Perry concluded “

snip http://dailycaller.com/2011/08/30/rick-perrys-camp-defends-1993-hillarycare-praise/

Shouldn’t Perry have known that Hillary’s efforts would NEVER be worthy?

Or maybe Perry was just kissing up?

But having said that, Perry is not at the bottom of my list, as he has some good qualities, but Perry supporters seem blind to his troublesome flaws. They need to research further, and compare all of the candidates, so they do the best job when they vote in the PRIMARIES!

And that's a legitimate issue, just as him supporting Gore a quarter of a century ago. But I personally think it was a formal letter based on Perry's position as Ag Commissioner that would have been written regardless of who was heading up the task force.

I just have issues with people on here saying that by writing that letter he supported Hillarycare, when the timeline proves otherwise. Or, saying Perry was Gore's campaign manager. Or, saying that Perry's gay.

According to many on here, all the Repbulican candidates are RINOs, so why bother voting? Naw, let’s all stay home, and let obama have a second term. This is what will happen if the naysayers on here have their way. We aren’t going to get a perfect candidate - and, that includes Sarah Palin if she decides to run. We’re all mere humans who have made our fair share of mistakes over the years, but, I for one, will be danged if I’ll sit back and allow zero to win another 4 years.

Perry may not be perfect, but he’s still light years ahead of the commie-in-chief now squatting at the WH.

Apparently you didn't read the article I provided....

Everybody was already aware of what Hillary care would consist of since her and Bill had been talking it throughout their campaign. When she took charge of the project it was to execute the plan. It's clumsy doomed roll out that you refer to when you say ‘November’.

But I assume you already knew that...
