Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a potential 2012 presidential candidate, accused the Obama administration on Sunday of transforming abortion into a U.S. export and breaking faith with the nation's founding principles by supporting taxpayer-funded embryonic stem cell research.
...his remarks at an anti-abortion rally amounted to a political introduction to a mostly Hispanic crowd of about 5,000 at a downtown arena.
...Several people in the crowd said they were mostly unaware of Perry but were willing to consider his candidacy, especially given his outspoken opposition to abortion.
"I look for any leader who has strong moral fiber," said Ricardo Brambila, 37, a paper company sales manager from Orange. A Democrat, Brambila said he's uncomfortable with Obama's direction on abortion and stem cells.
I have a friend now living in the Midwest who was part of the Buckley Gang out East. YAF, YR, the whole 9 yards. He swears that a Pubbie with strong pro-life convictions will bring the Hispanics into the (R) column, at least on the Presidential ticket.
McCain managed to drop that ball, just as did Dole. Bush did not fumble that ball at all.
