Governor Rick Perry certainly did him no favors in last evening’s CNN Republican Debate. Foolishly he played Anderson Cooper’s game with Governor Mitt Romney and both ended up looking non presidential. Obviously Lefty Cooper’s Goal.
Troubling in debates, one candidate can say one thing and another contradict with no facts available at the time and sound bites have a way of sticking. RightSpeak put’s it together nicely for us…….Governor Rick Perry, lies, do we need another liar in the White House?
That’ my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.
I think most of us are familiar with the major GOP candidates stand on China. For the most part, most feel that the U.S. is receiving the short end of our trade agreement.

While Perry focused on Huawei’s ability to create jobs in a sluggish economy, national security experts in both the George W. Bush and Obama administrations had concluded that the global telecom giant poses a potential cyber-security risk to the U.S. military and businesses. Three times since 2008, a U.S. government security panel has blocked Huawei from acquiring or partnering with U.S. companies because of concerns that secrets could be leaked to China’s government or military.

With Texas Governor Rick Perry expected to make an “announcement” on Saturday at a conservative conference in South Carolina, scrutiny of his record is more important than ever — particularly a look at his record with regard to China. In spite of posturing as an independent Christian conservative, Perry has consistently contributed to what is called the Chinafication of America. Read more…
The next video runs 8 minutes. It is narrated by Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Vince Wade. I encourage all to watch it because I found it very informative and very alarming at the same time.
