Perry Como-Nover

During Thursday night's Republican presidential debate, Mitt Romney, Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum all took shots at Rick Perry's record on illegal immigration. Bachmann said that Texas's law allowing in-state tuition for the children of illegal immigrants acted like a "magnet" for illegal immigrants. Perry's response was forceful and personal. "I don't think you have a heart," Perry told his critics.

Now I will support the Republican nominee no matter who it is, but I don't like Perry's Illegal Immigration record and I really don't like him suggesting that those of us who respect the rule of law somehow do not have a heart.  What an arrogant, condescending comment from this corn-fed hayseed of a J.R. Ewing impersonator... ... ... who I will enthusiastically support if he gets the nomination.

I caught this debate too. What a terrible decision by whoever let the gay soldier ask a question. What has happened to the standards in this country? The media going on about the handful of people who booed have totally missed the point.

I had to work, so only saw clips from the debate.

I assume the gay soldier brought up a social issue of some kind. The Republican candidates need to brush those aside and return to the economy if they are to unseat the incumbent.

He asked whether the GOP candidates would reinstate Don't Ask Don't Tell. If I were in the audience I would have done more than just boo the guy. It's time to reintroduce morals into the debate - no fags in the military period!
