It's a contrive and insufficient explanation. It would be preferable if he simply didn't add any earmarks or add them and vote for the bill.

Rick Perry: "Evolution is a theory that's out there," Perry said while crouching down to speak to the boy. "It's got some gaps in it."

I always HEART when someone misuses the term 'theory' like it's interchangeable with 'wild guess'.

Re: Meet The Candidates: 2012 GOP Thread

I remember when Palin was selected as the VP running mate and some of the Republicans on this board were convinced with that selection they were the front runners for the oval office.

The moment Palin was selected there was no just chance in a general election.

The same truth holds true for Bachman and Perry.

They are FAR FAR FAR to right of center. And Bachman is just a straight up lunatic. So that also hurts her chances.

Re: Meet The Candidates: 2012 GOP Thread

I love the quote about his dad J
Technically, Perry’s first job as an adult was selling encyclopedias and bibles door-to-door over the summer of the early 70s, while still studying in A&M. He would recount later, “There is nothing that tests your commitment to a goal like getting a few doors closed in your face”.

Perry enlisted with the United States Air Force after graduating in 1972, rising to the rank of Captain in a five-year career. During his time with the Air Force, he flew the
military
transport aircraft C-130 to far-flung corners of the world, including the hotspots of Central America, North Africa and Europe.

Soon after leaving the Air Force, Perry was accepted to join Southwest Airlines’ pilot-training program. However, he changed his mind and
returnedhome to work in the farm following a conversation with his father.

“Dad still thought I was there to do chores. I reminded him that I had just finished commanding a multimillion-dollar piece of government equipment and a number of grown men. He reminded me that the chores still needed tending to."

The clock is ticking on the Republican party as it stands today.

It's called demographics.

Just a matter of time. One or two more decades at the most.

Tick. Tock.

Re: Meet The Candidates: 2012 GOP Thread

Saw that Michele Bachmann is claiming that she would bring back $2.00 gasoline and pointed out that gas was $1.79 when Obama took office and is close to $4.00 right now.

Bachmann: I'll bring back $2 gas - Aug. 18, 2011

I don't think she understands how supply and demand works

you're kidding right -- just because no one has said it doesn't mean that neocons like Bachmann, Perry, Cain etc. wouldn't go to war with Iran if they could. Cain has straight up said that he wouldn't have a Muslim in his cabinet. If you don't think those three are racist you are deluding yourself.

Where did I explicitly say Islam was a race? would you like me to clarify and say that Cain is a religious bigot?

I didn't realize Bachmann, Perry, and Cain were the same person. Cain's thoughts don't speak for all the candidates

Well, if you're right of center then you simply must be insane and unelectable so they may as well all be the same.

Re: Meet The Candidates: 2012 GOP Thread

Haha, wow didn't know I'd stir up all this trouble -- I'm actually a big supporter of Ron Paul and I think that some of his ideas (not all) are really good. But, you're right if I have a problem against this woman:
Bachmann: "Not All Cultures Are Equal" - YouTube
then I think anyone right of center is a crazy, unelectable neocon.

That's Far Far Far right of center. Just to be clear.
