Rick Perry Out

Tyler Durden's picture

And then there were four.


It appears even Bank of America (which had a hilarious and brilliant $600 million Goodwill impairment today - on what? The fantastically prfoitable Countrywide acquisition) could not "help him out."

Of course, everyone is now expecting tonight's impromptu ABC "Career ending" interview with Mrs. ex-Gingrich, which may make it a trio. That may happen even despite Perry's imminent enrosement.

From Politico:

  • Rick Perry is expected to drop out later this morning at an 11 a.m. press conference and endorse Newt Gingrich, two sources confirmed to POLITICO.

the guy who said we should invade Turkey at the debates a couple nights ago. Apparently he wasn't told they've been one of our most staunch allies and have been part of the North Atlanic Treaty Organization for the last 60 years. I NOMINATE MYSELF FOR HIS SECRETARY OF STATE SHOULD HE RUN AGAIN!

Looks like Romney has this one in the bag, although he's a little to far to the right for my liking. I do however like his strong stance on the war on terror.

Meh.  Not your best, MDB.  Try stepping up the nationalist rhetoric just a little bit.

Bastard.  I was just getting to like his slow southern style.  Of course I was for him before I was againnst him which was just before I was for him so I would not be a bad person for not wanting to pay for illegals college.  Now I'm solidly for him...leaving.

Where was Rick Perry when the south west became overridden with immigrants and foreigners? Rick Perry is all talk and no ACTION. Ron Paul is the REAL DEAL.

Flakmeister's picture

You do understand that calling yourself "Born Patriot" while parading the flag of the CSA makes you a bit of a hypocrite??  Orwell would be very proud of you...

JPM Hater001's picture

I wish I could get RT news...10 minutes of Fox News coverage here and every candidate has been mentioned for potentially benefiting and of course the Newt Romney saga but not a word on Ron Paul

redpill's picture

"And then there were four."


Nope, still only two candidates in this race, Ron Paul and the establishment.

FEDbuster's picture

Maybe Ron Paul will get a couple more "gotcha" questions in tonight's debate.  Something like, "In your junior year of high school Dr. Paul there was a rumor that you ......" 

Newt's ex should provide enough ammo to knock him out.  Nothing like a pissed off ex-wife to ruin the rest of your life.

fuu's picture

Maybe he should have thought about that before he started fucking his staffer while his wife was diagnosed with MS.

JPM Hater001's picture

Maybe, just maybe...although it really hasnt happened so far...they will ask questions on monetary policy.  Just Maybe.

Of course pelicans could fly out my ass...maybe.  Just maybe.

On the Newt thing...I'd leave her for the blonde he's with now too and suffer all the consequences.  The ex does not look like a wife that is easy to please.  At least with the blonde I would be easy to please.

FEDbuster's picture

From the clip ABC released today, Newt wanted to be able to fuck whoever he wanted.  The ex said, "he wanted an "open" marriage, I didn't".  Wonder how that will play in the Bible belt?  Newt's has many more skeletons in his closet that they can and will drag out.

JPM Hater001's picture

Gotta sideline +1 that.  If you wanted to plus 2 redpill just add it to mine here.

Look up the definition of Patriot.  There is more than one NEOCON definition.

redpill's picture

"Born Patriot" is one of a number of fake puppet accounts by someone who poses as a Ron Paul supporter and says racist, mysogynist, anti-semitic, and violent things in an attempt to discredit Ron Paul supporters in general.  The confederate flag is part of his fraudulent schtick.

Negative, I know him from our one forum personally. He is a Southern Constitutionalist with let's saaay, strong genealogical opinions so-to-speak? 

I neither endorse or promote his points of view, but the 1A is still alive last I checked.

redpill's picture

In that case the biggest favor he can do Ron Paul is to shut up and stop posting.

Flakmeister's picture

Yep... I would venture that RP supporters are the strangest combination of bed-fellows we have seen since the Tehran Conference..... 

Flakmeister's picture

I am willing to bet that the two junks I got were from people that have no idea what the Tehran conference was....

Three mass-murderers sit on a deck.

Two instigated the U.S. into world wars.

Two starved their own populations to the tune of millions, and sent many thousands to detainment facilities.

All three worked for the same people.


What's so different about them, again?

Money 4 Nothing's picture

With all these NEOCON's parading around as Democrats, it's hard to tell the difference anymore between the RNC and the DNC.

All centeralized war mongers. What ever the next war is, I'm against it already.

You RP supporters will just have to accept the fact that RP cost himself the election with his idiotic Iran policy.  Even guys like Hannity woulda thrown in behind RP. 

So unless Newt can defy the odds we are stuck with Obama for another four years which should be great for gold and silver.

a growing concern's picture

Idiotic?  What the fuck are they gonna do with a nuke?  Nuke Israel, home of many of their holy sites?  I don't think so.  Nuke Europe or America and guarantee their complete annihilation?  I don't think so.


Hannity is a douchebag and a traitor, and he can suck on my nuts.

LasVegasDave's picture

Hannity is on TV an hour a day and radio for three hours. 

You can call his listeners sheeple, but if Hannity says get out there and vote, they will.

Nothing To See Here's picture

I also once thought that RP should slow down the foreign policy talk a little bit in order to get elected, but I now realize that to him this is as much a core issue as the Fed and that he is actually right to see it that way.

Only thing is that if he would get in office with his Fed talk, then getting rid of the Fed would allow him to get rid of the wars without even campainging on that theme.

But the guy just has too much integrity to play even this game.

still using your junior college ID to get discounts at museums?

This is what you don't understand...

What do you think happens when oil is no longer priced in US dollars?

Now asshats like Santorum and Perry are pandering to the Evangelicals because I truly believe that they have never made the connection between oil and the dollar....

Now, for the comprehension impaired, I am not defending American policy in the Middle East, not by a long shot, but I am completely capable understanding the logic...

Did it ever occur to you that the only thing keeping the US dollar alive is that connection with oil? Lord know the majority of people here understand the unsustainablity of the dollar, ever wonder why the fucking thing has not collapsed yet???


Cathartes Aura's picture

Santorum and Perry aren't the only candidates "pandering to the Evangelicals" - I guess when one picks their team, blinders are mandatory. . .

Born Patriot's picture

Who cares. The only candidate who is willing to defend freedom of association is Ron Paul. This country lost its way a LONG time ago with its multiculturalist policies. It's time to refound America by getting back to the CONSTITUTION. Ron Paul 2012!!

flattrader's picture

Yeah, just what we need....a Christian Reconstructionist nutballl whose followers promote the death penalty for adultery.

Enjoy your states' rights based Christian Gulag!

Public Stoning 2012!!!

redpill's picture

In case you missed it, you dumb fucker, Ron Paul is one of the few people interested in actually preserving our civil liberties.

I'd really like to know which campaign the Ron Paul FUD agents around here are drinking the kool-aid of.


flattrader's picture

Once elected, his Chrisitian Reconstructionist followers will handle your "civil liberties" on the state level.

Think Leviticus.  Think Mosaic Law.

Dumb fuckers like yourself won't be allowed to "spill seed" outside of procreation or matrimony without penalty of death.

You should get to know your candidate, his core, long-time supporters and their agenda better.

See my posts below.

Any fear, uncertainty or doubt can easily be addressed with some key work searches--

Try any combination of Ron Paul and: Christian Reconstructionists, Gary North, stoning, adultery, death, biblical law, Kayser endorsement

Let me know which pill you chose to take after that.

Flakmeister's picture

Do you mean like this:

We wouldn't need laws....

Admittedly, this is more related to Rand....

flattrader's picture

>>>Rand Paul: We Wouldn’t Need Laws If Everyone Were Christian<<<

Ron Paul's supporters will see to it that there are plenty of laws on the state level to make certain everyone behaves as a certain "kind" of Christian...being a garden variety Christian isn't good enough.

They got their bibles ready...to beat you over the head.

Smaller government on the federal level...just small enough on the state level to get under your bedroom door.

DionysusDevotee's picture

More baseless Ron Paul fear mongering.  Rand isn't Ron.  Got anything of substance?

flattrader's picture

Yeah, sure.

Ron Paul touts endorsement of pastor who defends death penalty for gays, delinquent children & adultery


Can't hide who you are when this is the company you keep...and you tout their endorsements...even if you later try to scrub it from your official campaign web site.

The internet has a looong memory.  Fortunately there are screen shots and a text archive of what the campagin tried to hide.

See my posst below for a direct quote from Ron Paul to the Christian Reconstructionist religious "remnant" regarding how they hold the "political truth" together.

And regarding Rand Paul, the nut doesn't fall far from the tree--




DionysusDevotee's picture

So?  The Pastor says that he agrees with Paul on economics.  Thats the way politics, and most other relationships work.  You find common ground, and work towards acheiving simmilar goals. 

Suggesting that because Pauls CAMPAIGN touted then withdrew their support of the pastor, that somehow Paul supports every single belief that the pastor has is completely intellectually dishonest, and absurdist too boot.

Paul took my money, lets say for argument I'm a Pagan polyamorist, whos into psychedelics.  I know lots of progressives that support him.  So which is it, is he a Christian Recon, or a neo-pagan progressive?

If guilt by association is to be the measure of the candidate, certainly all the others are far, far worse.

flattrader's picture

RP is a theocratic nutball.  Don't pretend otherwise.  Don't try to explain it away.

He speaks their language when he speaks directly to them.

He is one of them.  Deal with it.

>>>At the John Birch Society 50th anniversary gala, Ron Paul spoke to another favorite theme of the Reconstructionists and others in the religious right: that of the "remnant" left behind after evil has swept the land. (Gary North's publication is called The Remnant Review.) In a dispatch on Paul's keynote address, The New American, the publication of the John Birch Society, explained, "He claimed that the important role the JBS has played was to nurture that remnant and added, 'The remnant holds the truth together, both the religious truth and the political truth.'"<<<

That's a direct quote in bold.  You can watch the address online.

His religious remnant holds the "political truth" together?  What crap.

I like my government secular and want to keep it that way.

DionysusDevotee's picture

Having a religious belief does not make one a Theocrat.  More sloppy thinking.

Flakmeister's picture

True, but not distancing yourself from obvious Theocrats is a bit of a tell....

DionysusDevotee's picture

Hardly.  You know who else Paul "touts" the endorsement of?  Ralph Nader.  Oh, Denis Kucinich as well.  One MUST conclude that PAul is a covert Eco-Socialist who wants to advance the Global warming agenda and carbon taxes.

Just admit it.  The guilt-by-association argument is garbage.

flattrader's picture


Bit of a tell?  Man, you are being polite.

Yeah, the fact that Paul hired one of the principal nutballs (Gary North) during his first term as his researcher and speechwriter, allows them to edit his newsletter and manage his 2012 campaign can all be explained away.

My all time favorite though is Paul's association with the Constitution Party and endorsment of their candidates.  This is an organization whose founder, Rousas Rushdoony (Gary North's father-in-law,) advocated executing homosexuals by stoning, wanted to reimpose the institution of slavery, and maintained that the Sun rotated around the Earth.

I can't wait for Stewart and/or Colbert to go to work on the Paul Campaign.

Flakmeister's picture

I try to be polite if I am not insulted and slurred....

Let me guess Rushdooney was not an advocate of anthropogenic global warming....

Seriously, I have also had a bit of a soft spot for Ron. P., however, I simultaneously never harbored any illusions about the some of the wackadoos that he attracts... And yes, there are a lot of decent RP supporters, but there is a vocal minority of his supporters  that see his call for liberty to be an excuse to impose their own idea of "liberty"....

flattrader's picture

Rushdooney not an advocate of global warming???...ROTFLMAO!!!

I think his concern is more "creation" based.

These are Ron Paul's long-time supporters...people he hires and whose organizations he endorses.


>>>The movement is famously fractious, and for years Rushdoony has been crossing swords with his prolific son-in-law Gary North over questions wondrously exotic. The latest battle is over "geocentrism," the doctrine that the earth is the physical center of the creation. Rushdoony is for it and North is against it. Apparently they are lining up astrophysicists and other scientists to help confirm their conflicting exegesis of Scripture. Is this ridiculous?<<<

You can't make this crap up!!!
