Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback campaigns for Rick Perry

January 3, 2012

— Gov. Sam Brownback is helping Texas Gov. Rick Perry in his final push to win the Iowa Republican caucuses.

Brownback was an early supporter of Perry’s presidential bid. He endorsed the conservative Republican after attending an August prayer rally in Houston hosted by the Texas governor.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reported that Brownback was scheduled to appear at a pro-Perry rally Monday evening at a hotel in the town of Perry, Iowa. Brownback also planned to remain in Iowa to speak on Perry’s behalf at a caucus event today.

Perry and Brownback, I am sorry to announce, you are the last team to finish and you have been eliminated from the race! YooHoo!

Perry heading back to Texas to "rethink his campaign". In other words he's bowing out.

Like I stated earlier- I'm not surprised our Governor is backing an obvious loser.

Anyone that can honestly say they want Obama for another term has got to have a major screw lose!

Much like I was against Sebelious campaigning for Obama, I'm against Brownback campaigning for Perry.

His job (as was hers) is to govern the state.

The Party of Atheists just love it when they get to hate on Brownie.

"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you."

Not from Obama's campaign

"Other presidents and lawmakers tried for 70 years to pass health reform -- but this president took on the insurance industry and got it done. When President Obama took office, nearly 150,000 troops were deployed in Iraq; in December, the last American troops there left. The middle class was under assault for decades, and this administration worked to make the tax code more fair and give all working families the tax cuts they deserve. And since taking office, President Obama has taken the most significant federal action ever to reduce greenhouse gases and our dependence on foreign oil -- almost doubling our fuel-efficiency standards for cars and light trucks."

From Obama's campaign

This is just Republican party partisan humor by Speaker O'Neal. No reason for anyone to suffer heartburn. Pretty clever and funny, actually.

The only thing that upsets me is that his email, which presumably he addressed to only his political friends as a means of lightening the mood with a bit of humor, his email somehow got intercepted then made public, where it's now subject to misinterpretation. Jeez, he was just making a joke.

(I'll still be voting to re-elect President Obama, though. And that ain't no joke.)

Ya'll better quit talking about Brownie. The principle is going to call you to the office and order you to write a letter of apology.

Well, that should really give the Perry campaign the boost it needs.

If only one person shows up in Iowa to support you, is that a cauci?

Governors who pray publicly together, flock together.

Politics today is simple logic at work and sound bites work best - more difficult refute and so affordable due to their brevity. You know stories like when birds fall dead from sky because the Kenyan Obama is responsible for creating class warfare and income inequality when he was a tiny child and dreaming of being a Socialist/Fascist,Dictator and ruling the USA with an iron fist - just like Margaret Thatcher. It is logical and Faux Nuz says so, and besides, it is all just_math so not to worry. Just keep putting lipstick on the pigs and go back to sleep. If Perry were to be hoisted into the Presidency(hoisted, would be his only chance) it would be the best thing for the dumbing down trend in America and might actually take it to it's collective knees. Third World status officially achieved!!! A round of Tea P anyone?

unfortuneately the main thing these two have in common is their fundamentalist views of religion. Sad. Nothing against religion. I just think most fundamentalist be it Christain, Muslim etc. are wacked out of their minds.

If Romney is the GOP'er nominee, and would somehow wins the General election. I wonder what he would seel to pay off the debt. He could let Texan go and ask for a buy out like the Big East is asking of West Virginia. Romney could let the Mormons buy Utah, no one would miss it. Since selling off assets is how he made his money I am sure that is what would happen to the USA. He won't sell Kansas, we aren't worth anything.

Lotsa panic and paranoia with the usual leftists today. Can't wait for the GE. This forum may be too hot to handle the day after. Four years of economic sleepy-time and the voter may have one mission in mind heading to the polls: firing Obama.

Really hope perry gets nominated and takes brownie for VP, If we're lucky brownie will quit as gov and we'll be rid of him. Other great news would be if perry gets GOP nod, Obama is assured of re-election, no great campaigning needed.

Sam is a self-serving jerk, but he appears to be reasonably intelligent.

Perry is also a self-serving jerk, but he also appears to be pretty clueless.

In booths come November, perhaps enough folks will recall our governor's endorsement of Gov. Perry's doomed presidential bid and see it for what it is:

Our governor embraces rigid political beliefs and autocratic governing methods more befitting the era of Industrial Robber Barons. And if he and other like-minded executors of those beliefs and methods are not rejected by voters, they will remain in office and soon damage more of the social and environmental advancements Kansas has made during the last 60 years.

Sam only ran for Kansas Govenor because he saw his best chance to ever be elected as President or Vice President of the US was through the govenor's office. His original plan was to be nominated as a Presidential contender. When that failed his next opportunity was to kiss up to one of the actual contenders as a VP running mate. Now do you understand why he is endorsing Perry? The fantisy continues, until God gives him his "calling", which I think is ex-govenor of Kansas and out of politics. He will then become a Preacher.

Perry has clearly shown that he does not possess the intellect to be president. Even children recognize his gaffs. Strategically, support of Perry in the primaries equals support of Obama in the general election, since a squid could beat the tar out of Perry in a debate.

The question rises yet again, "Does Brownback see some crafty angle that he thinks will further his career, or does he really believe what he says?" Either answer is scary.

Too bad, I don't think Brownback is going to get to be VP. He's gonna have to stay in Kansas and take the heat for the mess he's made in one year.

With any luck, maybe Ol' Shambo could be a runnin' mate! Or, more likely, a promotion in store for Rick "God Names My Hunting Ranches" Perry: from Texas governor to Kansas SRS guy! You can't beat that kind of job security.
