Gov. Rick Perry's Response To Texas Death Penalty Question At Debate Drew Cheers and Other Perry Responses ~ Awesome!

Brian Williams: Governor Perry a question about Texas. Your state has executed 234 death row inmates more than any other governor in modern times. Have you struggled to sleep at night?

Governor Rick Perry: No sir. I’ve never struggled with that at all… If you kill one of our children or police officers or another citizen in a crime you will face the ultimate justice in Texas.

Then the cherring got louder for Rick Perry.


NBC host Brian Williams didn’t expect Rick Perry to correct his misstatements.
Perry corrected Williams on the minimum wage jobs in Texas.

Governor Rick Perry quickly corrected NBC’s Brian Williams tonight when he tried to smear the governor’s jobs record in Texas. Perry told Williams that 95% of the jobs created in Texas were above minimum wage.


After an hour it’s become obvious that the media’s only objective tonight was to attack Rick Perry.
Perry just said, “I sorta feel like the pinata here.”

Brian Williams goes back on the attack against Rick Perry – challenges him on the Texas school systems.

Rick Perry: “For the president to come to El Paso and say the border is more secure than it’s ever been, he either has the worst intel in history or he’s an abject liar.”


Perry gets a question on how to make the border secure

Rick Perry: For Obama To Say The Border Is Safe, Either He's Got Poor Intel Or "He's Was An Abject Liar"


Wild Thing's comment......

Perry did great and I loved his responses. I have seen several articles about the debate and the ones I have seen have Perry as the winner of the debate.

The main thing for me it is the first time I have seen him debate so that was important just on a personal level to see the person I am for in action.

Perry looked good. I love his answer on the death penalty.

Too many of them though were trying to liken themselves to Ronald Reagan. They need to be themselves, not another Reagan. They should learn from Reagan what he did right and what he did wrong and strive to be the best president.

I like that Perry is answering loaded and biased gotcha questions head on.

Perry is our man, and well on his way.

But am I the only one to see the energetic, results oriented brilliance of Herman Cain ?

I could have listened to him all night.

There is an undeniable untapped resource in the ability and prowess of this fine American from Georgia.

Outstanding and exemplary.

Carlos, I agree with you 100% about Herman Cain. He's who I would like to see as President but being a realist, I doubt he would get the nomination. The MSM is doing all they can to downplay him and therefore limiting his exposure. I believe that a Perry/Cain ticket would not only win the election but would also get this nation on the road to recovery.

Check out where Mr. Cain takes on MSNBC roundtable after the debate and shuts them up. Reminded me of Daniel going into the lions den and coming out unscathed.

Thats what we need. Someone to stand up to obama and not kiss his ass. Like most of those ninkompoops on the stage.

We are running against him not with him.

Thanks, BobF, that Real Clear Politics site is worth bookmarking.

Herman Cain knows well how to take on those MSNBC characters including those exchanges with Al not-so Sharpton and Lawrence I-am-a-Socialist O'Donnell.

One last observation where credit is well deserved:

While most people just talk about the leftist press corps, Newt continues to take it to them assertive, with command and effectively:
