    Do you think Governor Perry should get a pass?

    Nope. He is not conservative enough for me if he is willing to give illegals advantages over Americans. He gets no pass from me.

    No. he should stand up like a man and own what he said. He's just another "amnesty for all" candidate.

    He may get a pass, but he wont win regardless. The debates he has been part off have clearly shown he would be utterly destroyed by Obama and since the GOP is trying to find the great white hope to defeat Obama at any cost, then Perry has secured his own failure. The real question is.. when will he drop out..

    Oh gosh.

    Both Romney and Perry are walking back nearly everything they've said at one point or another.

    However, this was one of the things I really agreed with.

    He would own up to his remarks, which have painted him into a corner on this subject. Own it and campaign on it. I'm sure there is a constituency for the pov out there somewhere.

    Why should he get a pass? He was either lying on stage, or he is lying now. Take your pick.

    Thanks. I just wanted to get the honest opinions of several of you to see how people felt about candidates who say things that come out differently than what they thought they said.

    What is, or defines, "Conservative enough"?

    He is apologizing for calling people heartless.

    He stands behind his position 100%.
