People have more than that, like his refusal to reevaluate the evidence in the Willingham case. (which sent a man who was innocent to be executed). He also obstructed the Texas Commission inquiry into the case.

You had 3 elections of his to make a case...and you didn't/couldn't. This shows me Democrats are scared sh**less of him to be dredging up old rumors with no basis.

Gay rumors complicate Rick Perry's presidential prospects — RT
Here we go with the ministry of truth: Daily Kos. I guess the Democrat party minions are starting the 2012 election season early by starting nasty rumors on all possible candidates who can beat Obama. Even if they are old fabricated rumors by the sludge slinging Daily Kos. Have to do it early so the MSM can repeat it often and get people used to false rumors.


God help us.

Of course we all know that once somebody is married, it's a sure sign that they aren't gay. Just ask Ted Haggard's wife.

Lol. I don't think he is gay! He sure does take good care of his hair, though. Lol

there were major rumors and stories about Perry being Gay during the 2006 election cycle in Texas. Perry refused to confirm or deny the rumors, and during an on-camera interview Houston tv reporter Ted Oberg of KTRK(ABC 13), he called Oberg a "mofo" after a testy interview session on the subject...I will see if I can find that interview

i did google it and there have been no statements (or I couldn't find any) where he has denied anything, however all the reports are old, like 2004 except one 2009. ALmost, if not all, have come from very liberal sources, none with much credence and it appears his staff is ready to answer the rumors if and when there is something substancual to anwer. Right now, it appears the stories could be an attempt to discredit him. An example one article in the Austin paper with no date line says his wife is divorcing him. Eventually if you did deep enough you will find the story appeared 7 years ago and now his wife is encouraging him to run. Right now it seems like another witch hunt to me. If he decides not to run he won't be the first GOP candidate this election the left scared away.

sorry no good liberals run with this junk but are aghast when conservatives point out things like Barak Obama started his political career in the home of a terrorists.....

which is an absolute fact but we can’t talk about that because it is a non-issue... what we CAN talk about is a rumor that is very old and clearly wrong.

This is supposed to make me feel better about my fellow Americans with whom I have a political disagreement with?

every day I get closer to the opinion that a large number of the liberals in this country are just horrid people.

Personally it matters not to me except that it would just be one more lie coming from him. FYI unless you have not been paying attention there is a LOT more to nail his POS hind to the wall with, wait until the real elections start and watch him get destroyed by the Dems.
