Now let's see all of the Republicans out there wave their flags and chant, "Perry Perry Perry".

We all know it is coming. Why? Because if he decides to run for the presidency again, he will get the main support of False News and media spin.

But, it will be the same old same old. Different face, different letter after his name, same policies.

Just like Baby Boy Bush to Obama. Different face, different letter, same policies.

And for majority of the Republicans that will not see through the bullshit, they will act like he is going to be a savior. When in all actuality, he is bought and paid for. Just like the rest of these so called "representative" politicians.

That is pretty much my point.

No matter their names, faces, or, what letter is associated after their name. The policy always stays the same.

Noam Chomsky basically summarized it like this, using a different anaology, but, it is the same thing, "The point of public relations slogans like "Support our troops" is that they don't mean anything... That's the whole point of good propaganda. You want to create a slogan that nobody's going to be against, and everybody's going to be for. Nobody knows what it means, because it doesn't mean anything. Its crucial value is that it diverts your attention from a question that does mean something: Do you support our policy? That's the one you're not allowed to talk about."

Yes he is...bozo. "But we can offer more support for the argument that McCain and Cruz are "natural born citizens," thanks to a more recent report on presidential qualifications by the Congressional Research Service and a nicely sourced posting by associate editor David A. Graham of The Atlantic." Politico

The Constitution gives three eligibility requirements to be president: one must be 35 years of age, a resident "within the United States" for 14 years, and a "natural born Citizen," a term not defined in the Constitution.

Perry is fully retiring...not runnning for any more offices. He will be replaced at the next election by Greg Abbott...the attorny general who told the UN election observers NOT to go within 500 feet of Texas polls or they would be arrested. They didn't..LMAO

Texas will continue to lead the nation in business and growth...as it has last 10 years in row.. Sorry 'bout that..you'll just have to live with it.

Saturday Night Live opened tonight’s episode taking on the big sequestration fight in Congress, with Jay Pharaoh as President Obama admitting to the American people that “I really have no idea how money works or how budgets work,” but did his best to explain to the American people the real-world effects of the budget cuts.

Of course, Obama helped put all this into perspective by saying we’ll forget this in a month because we’ll have an even worse crisis to deal with.

IRS..."I was unaware!"
Benghazi "I wasn't informed"
NRS...."?"
AP and emails "I haven't heard of that!"
Fast and Furious "Not my doing!"
Heh. Forward!
Real leadership there, barrack!

Courtesy of electoral-vote.com . You know, the ones who predicted the outcome of the 2012 election with 100 accuracy.

Cruz is in a more difficult situation. He was born in Alberta, Canada, to a Cuban father and an American mother. Under American law, a person born in a foreign country to one citizen parent and one noncitizen parent, is a citizen provided that certain other conditions are met. In particular, the citizen parent must have lived in the United States for 10 years prior to the birth, of which 5 years must have been after the citizen parent's 14th birthday. No one is disputing that Cruz' mother, Eleanor Darragh, was an American at the time of his birth, but for Cruz to be considered a "natural-born citizen," as required by the Constitution, he may have to prove that his mother met the residency requirements imposed by the law.

How could be do this? Would he have to produce school records attesting she was in school? Would utility bills be legal proof? Did his mother save her utility bills and does Cruz have access to them? What if all the utility bills where she lived were either in her father's name or in her husband's name? If push came to shove, could Cruz actually prove that his mother met the additional requirements required for him to be a natural-born citizen? This is why voter-ID laws are so problematical. Even a rich and powerful man like Cruz might have trouble actually proving he is a citizen (if he is not a natural-born citizen, he is not a citizen at all since he was never naturalized).
