    That's the letter that he co-signed with the Chairman of the Democratic Governors Association.

    So if it's really going to be between Rick Perry and Mitt Romney the Republicans might as well just run John McCain again, or throw all of their support behind Obama.

    From the article:

    "My concern is that Washington is so inept at addressing these issues that are important to Americans, whether it's securing our borders or whether it's securing our financial future," Perry said. "Washington has been absolutely abject failures at this."


    Perry stopped short of endorsing any particular approach to the U.S. financial meltdown and warned against any measures that would allow shady business practices to continue.


    "We're sick and tired of watching Washington bicker with each other while financial markets are roiled," he said. "The other side of that is we're certainly not interested in Washington bailing out a bunch of irresponsible mortgage brokers in an industry that has too often been run on greed."
    .

    The point was he was tired of the partisan politics.


    The article you cite says Perry DIDN'T specifically endorse TARP.

    You know what, you may have an idea there.

    If the Republicans throw all there support behind President Obama, the Liberals and Democrats like TDM will all think there is something up and since they would never agree to vote in agreement with Republicans, they will vote for the Republican candidate instead. The Republicans then also vote for the Republican even though they verbally supported Obama and they could actually have a landslide despite the "independent" vote. :)

    And yes, I think liberals are that gullible.

    The very first sentence:

    "Gov. Rick Perry, saying he's "sick and tired" of the partisan gridlock in Washington, slammed the federal government on Tuesday for failing to agree on a rescue of the U.S. financial markets."

    Not to mention the letter urging Speaker Pelosi to pass TARP.

    Looks like Perry was willing to reach across the aisle and call for an end to partisanship.

    If it's Rick Perry or Mitt Romney then there's no reason to vote for them over Obama since they're exactly the same. Might as well save time and energy moving Obama out and them in, and just leave Obama there.

    That's not what is says at all...it says stop the partisanship and pass an economic recovery package...not Tarp specifically.

    One thing different about Perry, he supports breaking the country into pieces. I definitely cannot get on board with that one.

    TESTA & VERRET: Deliberately misjudging Rick Perry - Washington Times

    And to those who read this article and ask why I would use it since it disagrees with my stance on what Gov. Perry says, that is exactly why I used it. Besides another quick and easy link was the Huffington Post and well, you can imagine how they spun it. I wasn't planning on voting for either party. I cocked my ear when Perry entered the race. I cannot support him partly because of this stance.

    Except that TARP was the only package being considered, and Perry must have known that.
