TX Gov. Rick Perry is God Damned Idiot

Saturday, September 19, 2009

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R), long rumored to be on the “DL,” is locked in a tough primary challenge with another Texas queen, former U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R), left many local Hee Haws puzzled when he declared his state was recession proof.

Perry opined:

“As a matter of fact, someone had put a report out that the first state that’s coming out of the recession is going to be the state of Texas. I said, ‘We’re in one?'”

Paul Burka of the Texas Monthly weighed in on Perry’s remark:

“This gaffe is going to stick. It will come back to haunt him in a campaign spot. If Hutchison can’t make something of it, the Democrats can. You cannot be callous and cavalier when people are losing their jobs and their homes. I don’t care how ideological the Republican base is. Unemployment in Texas just reached the 8% mark. Everybody knows someone who is suffering in these times. Everybody has lost part of their life savings. It could cost him the race.”

    Perry needs to stop trying to impersonate George W. Bush and get a personality of his own.

    He has an identity crisis and it isn’t attractive in a 50 year old man.

    I heard this fool was part of the GOP Presidential straw poll. I hope he runs. It would be an easy victory for Democrats.

  3. Woodcliffe says:

    Many years ago, back when Bush was governor, he uttered something equally stupid about a report that said 1-in-4 Texas children were hungry.

    He said something like “Hunger, in Texas, Where?”

    I thought what a buffoon. But, Texans ate it up and cheered him on. You see, he thinks like them. This is a state of arrogant ignoramuses who believe their shit doesn’t stink.

    My guess is, Perry’s boneheaded crack will be equally cheered.

    Rick Perry is on the DL? Why am I not surprised?

  5. Peace Nick says:

    I thought the Lone Star State was going to secede?

    What the hell happened? Please go; scram; adios; don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

    The upper crust oil barons are doin’ just fine…. what’s the problem?

    That quote will come back to bite him in the ass….
    Which is it Perry?
    Recession proof or coming out of a recession?

  7. kareninTexas says:

    Yep, he is an idiot. Front page of Austin American Statesman read that more Texans are filing for unemployment. Only the rich think there’s nothing wrong. Perry is not being realistic at all. I can’t believe the idiots that think he’s so great! I’ve about had it with red Texas and am ready to move.

    I see you got to this one before I did, but I made a nice graphic for mine 🙂

  9. Joe in Colorado says:

    Rick Perry is a clown. Yet, everything I see suggests voters really only have one other choice: Kay Bailey Hutchison and the polls show she is going win in a landslide. Texans love and adore Miss Kay even more than they love and adore George W. Bush and Poppy Bush. People need to admit it: Texas is a very red, very conservative state and it’s not about to morph into a liberal state just because Barack Obama was elected president.

    I thought those Lone Star wingers were getting ready to secede? What are they waiting for? Divine intervention?

    Just go and take all the nutty Baptists and Bushes along too. Don’t leave a scrap of paper behind.

  11. Terry Baker says:

    Sure, and he’s Presidential Material. One more possible for the GOP if that woman from Alaska doesn’t work out.

    Gun nuts and religionists in Texas. Give ’em another few decades and they will have their own “Taliban,” Texas Style.

  12. Truth says:

    Not all Texans lack education and common sense. There are many of us who have exceptional brains and empathy to spare. Some of us are still questioning how Perry won the last election. We do agree that Perry acts like not one of us have two brain cells to rub together and we all buy his crock of BS. Like the Emperor’s new clothes – he is the only one that doesn’t know that his bull-shit was stinking to high heaven years ago.
