Sigh. So yet another entry goes into my "Establishment figures" bookmarks folder. Too bad 'cuz Forbes is pretty good on many issues and his magazine & website are often favorable towards Ron and his positions

Anybody who thought Forbes was other than a Fortune 500 guy need to recalibrate their personality meters. This fatass is pure 105% establishment and always has been.

This was a given when you realize that Forbes helped Perry write his "Cut, Balance, and Grow" plan.

But Palin endorsed Rand so she will endorse Ron!

Lesson learned, kids.

Forbes is working for Perry's campaign. As kejonn said, he wrote "Perry's" flat tax plan. Forbes is all about his flat tax plan. I doubt he really cares one way or the other about Perry. Perry is just a means to an end for him.

When Forbes ran he was a one trick pony; flat tax. Not suprising that he'd get behind Parry's 20% flat tax because he ran based on it. Still a shame that the government will suck so much money out of the economy and still have to borrow more than that amount.

Trying to extrapolate this to Palin is the same thing you just denounced.

where is the evidence that Forbes wrote and or helped shape the tax plan? I know he's a flat tax advocate but I want to see proof he collaberated w/ Perry

No, people were basing their hopes of Palin endorsing Ron on the fact that she endorsed Rand. They had the same hopes for Forbes. It's the same situation as it always is, and it always ends the same.

My point was that they are both establishment, and as much as they act like they are not, they always will be.

The only big endorsements will come when Ron is polling above 20% and the field is much smaller.
