I don't have a dog in this fight, but...

A thread for when candidates get a bit carried away ...

Quote:
Rick Perry is a desperate candidate who will say and do anything to prop up his sinking campaign,”
Romney communications director Gail Gitcho declared
after a new attack ad from TexasGov. Rick Perry’s presidential campaign
linked the former Massachusetts governor to the Democratic president on health care.

“In trying to deflect attention from his liberal in-state tuition policy for illegal immigrants,
he has resorted to repeated dishonesty, distortions, and fabrications about Mitt Romney,”
Gitcho said. “After a mere eight weeks on the trail, Governor Perry is poised to dethrone
his one-time boss Al Gore as the most prolific exaggerator and truth-fumbler in presidential campaign history.”
ETA: And besides that, he sucks eggs.

Speaking live on CNN's "The Situation Room," Jeffress told CNN Political Correspondent Jim Acosta,
"I think Mitt Romney's a good, moral man, but I think those of us who are born-again followers of Christ
should always prefer a competent Christian to a competent non-Christian like Mitt Romney.
So that's why I'm enthusiastic about Rick Perry."
And besides all that, Romney belongs to: The Church of Jesus Christ and Latter Day Saints

Herman Cain, in an interview with Wall Street Journal

Quote:
When asked about the #OccupyWallStreet movement:
I don't have facts to back this up, but I happen to believe that these demonstrations
are planned and orchestrated to distract from the failed policies of the Obama administration.

Don't blame Wall Street, don't blame the big banks,
if you don't have a job and you're not rich, blame yourself!
It is not someone’s fault if they succeeded.

And besides all that: Cain added that the banks "did have something to do with the crisis in 2008,
but we're not in 2008, we're in 2011 ! Okay?"

Rep. Ron Paul scored a decisive victory Saturday in a mock presidential election
at the Values Voter Summit, trouncing fellow Texan, Gov. Rick Perry,
but an organizer of the straw poll suggested ballot-stuffing may have skewed the results.

In a press conference following the announcement of the straw poll results
at the annual Washington gathering of social conservatives,
Family Research Council President Tony Perkins all but dismissed the results as irrelevant,
citing 600 people who registered Saturday morning and, he said, "left after Ron Paul spoke."
A total of 1,983 ballots were cast. "You do the math," Perkins said.
And besides all that:
Perkins said his organization did "everything to preserve the integrity of this straw poll,"
including denying campaigns from buying blocks of tickets,

More than half the members of the Texas House have signed on as co-authors
of a measure directing universities to allow concealed handguns.
The Senate passed a similar bill in 2009 and is expected to do so again.
Republican Gov. Rick Perry, who sometimes packs a pistol when he jogs,
has said he's in favor of the idea.
Besides all that:
Concealed handgun license holders are allowed to skip the metal detectors
that scan Capitol visitors for guns, knives and other contraband.

Romney Says Occupy Wall Street Protests Are the ‘Wrong Way to Go’
Quote:
Last week, at a campaign stop in Florida, the former Massachusetts governor said
the demonstrations were “dangerous” and “class warfare.”
But when asked about his comments afterward, the GOP front-runner declined to elaborate,
saying “I’m just trying to get myself to occupy the White House.”

Romney and Cain are part of an ever-expanding circle of Republicans
who have spoken out against the protests, which have spread from lower Manhattan
to dozens of other cities across the country since they began last month.
And besides all that,
LA Times October 11, 2011, 12:00 p.m.

Mitt Romney sympathizes with Wall Street protesters
Quote:
“I look at what’s happening on Wall Street and my view is,
boy, I understand how those people feel,”
he said at a town hall event in Hopkinton, N.H.
“Because with median income down 10% ... with chronic unemployment,
long-term unemployment worse even than the Great Depression,
the people in this country are upset.

GOP debate is wicked
The Republican race has turned into “The Wizard of Oz.”
Rick Perry wants a brain.
Mitt Romney wants a heart.
And any number of candidates are Dorothy,
realizing there is no place like home and they should have stayed there.

Herman Cain is the Cowardly Lion, seeking courage.
He needs the courage to face the fact he is never going to be the Republican nominee
no matter how well he does in the polls.
He needs the courage to settle for something far better than the presidency: His own show on Fox.

They all march down the yellow brick road ...

“Take 9-9-9 and turn it upside down,” Bachmann said. “The devil is in the details.”

Rick Santorum said at one point: “I want to go to war with China.”
He was talking about an economic war. I think.
And besides all that:

Dorothy: “How do you talk if you don’t have a brain?”
Scarecrow: “Well, some people without brains do an awful lot of talking, don’t they?”

Is there really anyone other than Romney?
