Looking forward to seeing how he does in the debates. Beyond that, I just think it's downright silly to get angry at Perry over the TTC (conspiracy theorist garbage) or "crony capitalism" (could be leveled at any politician we don't like for pretty much anything). The only substantive crit...

Reagan was once a Democrat, and, apparently, so was much of Texas in the 80s and before. Gore himself was once far more conservative than he is now (before he got on the global warming kick). It could, and very likely is, a real case of the Democrat party becoming to liberal for Perry. As for Bush, ...

My big question for Perry is electability. We weren't even sure he was terribly electable here in Texas in his recent elections. :lol: This will be a jobs election. The contrast couldn't be starker. I don't have any doubts about his electability. Is he guaranteed to win? Of course not, but he's at ...

Jac, I think you're right in the sense that Perry's problems are pretty typical for politicians. There isn't necessarily anything that makes him clearly unacceptable. But I think you actually concede too much to the assertions of the New York Times op-ed page with this one: Very true, and thanks fo...

I don't get the firm opposition I'm seeing to Perry. I've spent way more time reading opposition research than I have reading pro-Perry pieces, and I just don't see anything all that worrisome. For instance . . . 1. Crony capitalism - just because it has come up in this thread. This, to me, is one o...

Well, for someone who was berating me for inflammatory language, that seemed to be a bit snarky. ;) I never said you couldn't respond. I said that I didn't raise the point to get into an argument. No more and no less. YOU are the one who assumed that I was implying people who disagreed with me were ...

It is not my theology here, but God's Word which instructs us that there are sins that simply wound the soul's relationship with God, but there are also sins that kill it. 1 Jn 5: 16-17 If any one sees his brother committing what is not a mortal sin, he will ask, and God will give him life for thos...

QVA, only two things. 1. I'm content letting this rest. I've made my views as clear as I can, particular with respect to why I abhor this deal and now the Republican party as a whole (thought, obviously, not necessarily every individual within it). God bless you in your attempt to salvage it. I have...

Does the two different reactions mean anything? Let me quote something I said on another forum: There are (at least) two kinds of liberals and two corresponding kinds of conservatives. There are those who are liberal because they really love they are statists at heart, which (I think) is at the cor...

Malleus Haereticorum, I am not choosing "the lesser of two evils". I am using what God has made available to me in order to limit the advance of evil in as much as has been granted to me to be able to do. You may not be, but there are plenty of people who freely confess that is exactly wh...

No, Jac, I am asking you to respect the differing views of the conservatives on this board. Have you ever studied apologetics? If so, then you are familiar with 1 Peter 3:15 and the admonition therein. You would also realize that you are not persuading; you are inflaming. Doors slam shut when you p...

Can we please handle our disagreement a little more respectfully? I don't know anyone on this board who puts party over principle. The accusatory & rather hostile language is counter-productive & invites return fire. What is accomplished by our turning on each other? Our enemy is not here. ...

I do not really want to be drawn into a back and forth defense of people who are not perfect. But please remember that many of us here may have leanings toward some of the Tea Party ideals, if not all their actions. (I would think most of us do agree with them more than with the socialistic ideas o...

You're talking about the first set of negotiations. I am talking about the second set that we developing over the July 22 weekend.

How can 1.2 trillion taxes not have increased the tax rate? Why should we trust government to ever lower taxes? Increasing taxes, as you know, would have really upset those voters who sent the Republicans to Congress on their promise not to raise taxes. If I recall correctly, $800 billion of that c...

They could have accepted a deal with the President that would have cut the deficit by four trillion dollars with a mixture of 2.8 trillion in spending cuts and 1.2 trillion in taxes that would not have increased the tax rate. That would not have hurt the economy nearly as much as the Washington Tem...

QVA and Mis, all that you both wrote sounds nice and pretty and will make Republicans feel better while they watch the economy crash. Here's what you are missing: Elections have consequences. Whether you like it or not, Americans elected Barack Obama president in 2008. Yes, he shoulders most of the ...

I agree, mary. The problem is that the very compromise Republicans accepted guaranteed a downgrade of the US credit rating. That isn't compromising or taking small strides forward. That is taking HUGE strides BACKWARDS. A compromise would have been Boehner accepting $400 billion in new taxes to save...

If Congress were all Democrat they would have passed a clean debt ceiling increase with no cuts (not to mention another stimulus, a more leftist health reform, cap and trade, FOCA, Fairness Doctrine, etc. etc.). Can't govern out of the House. Our choices were to take the cuts we could get with like...

FURTHER, the freaking out over the debt-ceiling is EXACTLY the problem. People are scared that if we don't raise it then we will lose our credit rating and suffer a partial gov't shut down. BUT IF WE PASS THE BOEHNER PLAN THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT WILL HAPPEN. We may avert the shutdown, but we will STIL...
