Maybe we should look to the Groverometer to see who we Tea Partiers should like (or not like!) for a Republican Presidential candidate. If Grover likes the candidate you can be assured that he is a Republican establishment type and is the one to avoid!
Here is a piece from the Daily Caller where Amnesty supporter and Islam/shariah advocate Grover Norquist calls Michele Bachmann the flavor of the month and then sounds positively giddy about Texas Governor Rick Perry.
Americans for Tax Reform president Grover Norquist volunteered a guarded assessment of Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann on Friday.
“There’s a possibility that Bachmann’s the flavor of the month,” Norquist told The Hill. “I would be less surprised to see her drop in the polls over the next few weeks [or] months than I would Perry or Romney.”
Norquist, a longtime anti-tax advocate who has not endorsed a candidate, had kinder words for the week-old presidential candidacy of Texas Gov. Rick Perry.
Perry “fills this big empty spot” in the Republican primary field, Norquist said.
By the way, there has been a lot written in the last week critical of Perry and his positions on immigration (he supports in-state tuition for illegal aliens), property rights (Agenda 21), his Muslim pals, and even on his Nanny-state tendency as demonstrated by forcing young Texan girls to get a controversial immunization.
Are those the “big empty spots” Grover had in mind?
I saw this question asked someplace, some time ago, and it keeps popping back into my mind—what more could they do to Palin? The media and the ruling class have taken her and her family to hell and back. They have turned over every stone (every pebble) in their lives and yet she keeps on coming—fearlessly. Just now when I went to Atlas Shrugs to find Pamela’s story on Perry, I noted that she has Palin’s two minute Iowa ad prominently posted (Geller loves her). Check out the ad yourself here.
Update August 24th: Here is another story about Perry and immigration.
