That was SWEET!! I liked seeing him shut down that idiot. It felt good to watch. I hope he continues with demanding substance from reporters accusations.
So..Perry has finally learned how to answer the gotcha landmine questions from the media left. Glad to see it. Takes awhile to learn the answer to the "Have you stopped beating your wife?" question
Best answer : "I'm not married...who have you been talking to?"
That name would probably be Karl Rove - the maestro of dirty tricks and smears and whisper campaigns -- to use more polite language. Interestingly enough, Rove recruited Perry to switch from a Dem to a Republican years ago. And though I don't think Perry is an absolute angel, I think he has more of a moral core than Rove does. Rove enjoys the disinformation campaigns. For more info - watch the documentary on Current TV about Bush's Brain. (Yes, I know how they lean -- but watch and see if some of the facts seem to tell the full story about Rove and how he works against his political opponents -- most of whom have been Republicans he's campaigned against as he brought his candidates to the top).
Politico, noun; politician: a politician, especially one whose words are dismissed as trite or whose motives are disapproved of as self-serving ( informal )
An appropriate choice for the name of this so-called "news" organization, don't you think?
I’d say dear Mr. Reporter, I have been told from creditable, anonymous, highly placed sources in your organization that you’re about to be fired for being a fool, an incompetent jackass who doesn’t know the first thing about doing his job in a valid and credible manner … would you care to comment on that for us? Because I really don’t see the point in taking questions from someone who could be fired from his position if my sources are correct. “F” these idiots … make them explain themselves or just deep six them
It's nothing personal, but how many times are you going to cut and paste the same thing? We get it- the Gov is not your choice.
I'm not a big Rick Perry fan, but this is a GREAT response to a "When did you stop beating your wife?" query.
Hope I remember to use that riposte when appropriate.
I from Iowa, and I am working on the strike force, Ive met Perry twice, and let me tell you he is this way when it comes to people trying to get him on gotcha questions.
I have it from a highly-placed un-named source from within Politico that they are all homosexual communists. Care to comment?
HAPPY NEW YEAR Perse!!! I'm with you!
Wish we lived closer, we could go for lunch to celebrate hopefully a GREAT new year!!!.✿☺♥
Baloney; as soon as any Tea Party member stops acting like a lemming and performs due diligence, they get a clue. I've live on a ranch for 40+ years in Texas and never took a penny from government at any level, and never will. You obviously don't live in Texas, nor have you read Governor Perry's book, 'Fed Up!' -- which is better than any book ever written by Ron Paul.
After seeing so many Paulestinian lies about him, I spent months performing due diligence on Governor Perry -- and he comes up looking like the ONLY manwho can beat Hussein Obeyme. Here is my assessment of the field:
As a lifelong Texan, I'm calling you out. In this monograph, I lay out why Rick Perry is the ONLY viable conservative in the race, period. 'Dangerous Muslim compromise' my eye; this is BS from the Paulestinian ground troops.
Way to go Rick. BTW, this a$$hole reporter apparently cannot ask a question or series of questions without his little hands flying all around. What a dweeb.
There you go, Perry not only has the experience, the resume, the governing of a true consistent conservative BUT Perry can even do a great job at slapping down the liberal media/Obama.
What better person could you ask for. Rick Perry 2012
I read the politico piece, and it completely makes sense, as to why the Perry campaign had struggled in the beginning but also has improved and turning his campaign around as of late. "Campaign aides describe a behind-the-scenes power struggle that played out this fall" http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1211/70976.html
Now He has new handlers on his campaign, obvious proof the way he responds to the politico piece, who knows how his old handlers (who use to work for Newt) might have allowed him stick his foot in his mouth again. I think it was obvious his old handlers did not have Perry prepared and the experience to run a Presidential campaign.
and btw, even Foxnews plays the anonymous source game.
Steven, you're missig the point. While it may very well be technically true, nobody is interested in staff infighting -- except those who are trying to tak a candidate down. Anyone who has read "Fed Up!", Governor Perry's latest book, knows that this fellow could be the next Andrew Jackson; ONLY Rick Perry has taken it to both the blue-haired tyrant senior citizens and to the crime cartel that uses the felicitous but fraudulent brand 'Federal' Reserve.
Petty political bickering turns people off, as well it should. This republic faces incredible domestic enemies; if we don't take them on NOW and stay on them until we beat them, they will have finished us as a constitutional republic.
In this monograph, I explain how long this onslaught has continued; it's all about the money. Always has been:
Only Rick Perry gets it. Read 'Fed Up!' and compare it to any of Ron Paul's books -- and especially his ACTIONS over the past 30+ years in Congress.
Like Gingrich, Ron Paul is all politician's talk and dirty politics; no action.
Wallace got the same slap down on Sunday. I love Perry finally getting the message. These reporters do not want him as POTUS. They want to damage him as much as possible. Way to go Rick. We got your back!
I really hate these Paul bots trying to convince us Perry not conservative. The real RINO in the race is Ron Paul. The libertarian isolationist pretending to be tea party republican.
Reporter is TOAST!!
Who is this Rick guy again?
Where has he been?
I think Ricky should kick some staff butt for not waking up sooner!
I would like to see Rick and Ahmadineobnoxious go toe to toe
I'm off the Rick Perry bandwagon, but I do like this. I've had countless leftists trying to 'zing' me on people like Bush, the War on Terror, Conservatism, Christianity, etc., and it almost always comes in the form of some stupidly intentionally inflammatory statement from that mysterious group, T.H.E.Y.. Funny how they've got so many contacts in the world's best intelligence organization, and yet can't produce a single name from one of these intrepid operatives that finds out so much intel on us.
Now that is how you handle a pesky, negative "reporter." He didn't appear uncomfortable with the confrontation, he held his ground, and at the end, he won the argument without giggling or reaching out & physically laying hand on the guy. (Although I personally would want to strangle these idiots.)
I like his fighting spirit. Tripped up Romney a number of times, too. Would make an interesting showdown with the big O.
A response like this has been WAY too long in coming. If it wasn't said or done by somebody in particular, then it didn't happen.
