Rick Perry Takes a Break from Bullying Texans to Attack Obama

perrystupidSo the indicted Rick Perry, determined to turn his totalitarian tendencies toward the White House, spent some time in New Hampshire this weekend – his first since he got clobbered in 2012 – attacking the black man currently living in that house.

An expert in oh so many ways where foreign policy is concerned, Perry attacked Obama over Syria, Egypt, Libya, Israel, of course, Iraq, and even the Ukraine. Oh, and let’s not forget Mexico.

Perry told the Republican gathering that,

Anyone who thinks a porous border does not represent a tremendous opportunity for global terrorist groups to inflict harm on the American people is profoundly naïve.

National security starts at the border and we have enormous exposure because the border is not secured.

Let’s see…President George W. Bush, governor of Texas for six years, then President of the United States for eight – a combined total of fourteen years. He found time to declare June 10, 2000 to be “Jesus Day” and even to invade Iraq, a country which had done nothing to the United States. But he didn’t find time to fix the border.

Rick Perry, governor of Texas for the fourteen years following Bush. Found time to pray away the drought and pretend it worked. Even found time to buy a pair of glasses. Southern border still not fixed.

“I’m not waiting on Washington,” Perry said, telling Republicans what they want to hear. “If Washington will not take action to secure the border, Texas will.”

Texas just won’t pay for it.

Perry calls out National Guard. Militarizes border. And after all, isn’t he governor of Texas? The guy who wants the feds to stay out of his business? Until the bill comes due, that is.

I don’t know, but I’m not seeing these Republican governors putting their money where their mouth is. If the federal government should just back off – and according to them, where border security is concerned, it has – then why is our border with Mexico still insecure? Why should the federal government take care of this issue when Republicans don’t want it to take care of any other?

In point of fact, of course, it is Republicans in the House who have failed to deliver on border security but Perry can’t attack them. This is a classic case of the GOP, having sworn to deter Obama success at every turn, stymied attempts to secure our borders and then blamed it on Obama, as planned all along.

At which point an indicted Rick Perry – surely not part of the plan – takes to the campaign trail to distract folks from the charges pending against him by attacking Obama’s foreign policy.

Of course, if Obama does sign a few executive orders dealing with border security two things will happen. Republicans, including Perry, will accuse him of abusing his authority (strangely enough, what Perry is alleged to have done in Texas) and start shouting “Benghazi!”

And of course, being on the campaign trail despite not having said he is going to run (much depends on whether or not he is in prison instead) and being part of the party that destroyed the American economy and has done nothing since to created a single job, and which has stifled every attempt by Obama to restore our economy, Perry attacked Obama for the state of the economy:

When we think about where we find ourselves today, economically, with the millions of Americans that are being forced to go on food stamps. The millions of Americans that have just given up hope to even find a job, they’re not even counted anymore, because of the policies of this president.

Oh, are those the food stamps your party is doing everything in its power to eliminate, Mr. Perry? Those food stamps?

You know, where Boehner and company want to throw 300,000 children off food stamps? Where millionaire Republicans are trying to cut $20 billion in food stamps for the poor? You mean where Paul Ryan wants to cut 1.8 million people off from food stamps because they have a car? You mean where Republicans were forced to drop food stamp cuts from the Farm Bill only because they humiliatingly couldn’t pass their own legislation any other way? Those food stamps?

Would those be the same food stamps Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) blasted the use of by a “physically fit” couple in Virginia despite having collected 370,000 dollars in federal stimulus money for his Oklahoma plumbing company?

Those food stamps?

These would be the same food stamps, am I right, that Walmart and McDonalds employees are forced to subsist on because the company pays criminally low wages to its employees?

Yeah, that’s what I thought. THOSE food stamps.

And don’t even get me started on Republicans cutting unemployment benefits.

And you do know that the economy is improving, Mr. Perry? Right? Despite everything your party has done to derail America’s recovery from the Republican-caused recession in 2008. You DO know that?

And remember how Rand Paul says we’re afraid of him? Rick Perry thinks so too, telling the faithful that,

The Democrats are desperate, they’re taking every potential good Republican candidate and coming in with all kinds of distortions.

They tried to do it to Chris Christie in New Jersey. They tried to do it to Scott Walker in Wisconsin. But one place they made a big mistake is trying to do it in Texas.

Oh no! Don’t mess with Texas! Rick Perry will get you!

If you think you can do it from behind bars, come get some, Rick.

At least this time he remembered what state he was in.

  1. LMAO, now ISIS is coming over the border into Texas according to this idiot. This is like listening to Bush and Cheney all over again. Also Ricky, talking about our President being lawless is a bit hypocritical don’t you think? Maybe you should not go there.

  2. Criticizing Democrats is all the Republican party has. If they weren’t bashing Democrats, they would have to talk about what they have done, and what they will do and we know that would be a short conversation.

    If it weren’t for a compliant media, the right would be nowhere. Unfortunately, though, the media seem only interested in promoting Republican talking points and not reporting on good things that are happening in this country.

    So-called journalists at the major networks have sold out to protect their high-paying jobs and have stopped trying to be fair or balanced. It is all of the corporation, by the corporation, and for the corporation. Money is king.

  3. I didn’t run all these words together, it did it when it posted. There are actually 3 different paragraphs.

  4. Where are your solutions to the problems in the country? Oh that’s right the Republicans don’t have any. You can’t count starting wars where you use other peoples kids to steal oil or whatever from other countries.Rick Perry has been ripping off his state for years. The last thing America needs is this clown as President.

  5. I’m glad I am not registered as a Republicam. Their so called leaders are a bunch of dolts! All they do is :1. Attack the President,2. Lie to their base, 3. Use fear to get them motivated to vote, 4.If not using fear, they use hate to get their base motivated 5. While Attacking President Obama, offer no new ideas, because they have no new ideas. 6. Bully people, organizations until they get what they want.

    If Rick Perry became President, this country would be in worse shape than Texas. If any of them were elected President this country would be worse off than Texas, Kansas, and New Jersey combined.

    We know what would happen if they were elected: We’d end up resembling one of those 3rd world countries we see on TV.

  6. Rick Perry authorized $1.3 million dollars/week to be spent on border security through the end of the year. How’s that working? Perhaps his lack of success is indicative of how a Perry presidency would operate. Got a problem? Just throw money at it and see what happens.

  7. The only house Gov Dumbass is going to is BIG HOUSE. SO instead of attacking Obama he better be talking to his lawyers!

  8. I dont think it was a bug. I shared a picture of John McCain smiling in a picture with propported ISIS members in the middle east yesterday. When the pic showed up on my timeline the guy right next to him was photo shopped out. Hmmm.

  9. Please excuse, but I have a Sarah Palin video I just had to share here. Since there was no “stupid” Palin article to speak of currently, and we are talking about “Stupid “as in Perry, I thought I would share a video about stupid Palin.
    If you haven’t caught one of her latest videos, check this out. This is priceless.
    Notice her facial expressions and the messy hair.
    Wonder what she was really drinking.


  10. Rick Perry is a secessionist, state’s Rights guy and a traitor to the USA. As such there is no way he can responsibly lead a federal UNION of states which he denigrates at every opportunity. His TEXAS experience reveals he doe not really understand the meaning of governance FOR ALL THE PEOPLE.

  11. I figure Perry will run in ’16 with Ted (Not Tom)Cruz vs. the Democrats with Maryland guv O’Malley and his veep, Sen. Warren of Mass. O’Malley was the mayor of Baltimore. Dealt with big city problems.

  12. What I can’t understand about Herr Homo (Perry’s prison bitch name) is that some people actually believe and support him.
