Rick Perry Self Destructs And Blames His Flaming Stupidity On Having A Bad Back

Rick Perry imploded today when during a Fox News Sunday interview he tried to blame his stupidity on the fact that he has a bad back.

Fox News Sunday’s Chris Wallace asked Perry what went wrong in 2012, and Perry answered with the lamest excuse possible.

Perry said, “I would recommend anybody running for the presidency make sure you’re healthy. I’d had major back surgery, and I didn’t prepare properly, and I think the real issue there was I thought being governor of the state of Texas for twelve years was enough preparation to run for presidency and the fact of the matter is, there’s nothing like it, and until you’ve done it, you don’t even realize what a challenge it is. These broad array of issues that you have to have more than just passing knowledge of.”

Wallace asked Perry what he learned, and the former Texas governor responded, “Well, number one, you gotta be healthy, and secondly, you gotta prepare, and it takes years of preparation, I would suggest to you.”

In this interview, Rick Perry admitted that he is lazy, makes bad decisions, and he is unprepared. The foundation of his presidential campaign appears to be vote for me because my back doesn’t hurt, and I studied this time.

President Kennedy had a bad back, but that didn’t cause him to start World War III during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Millions of Americans have bad backs, but their back pain doesn’t make them lazy and stupid.

What would happen if Rick Perry were president and his back acted up again? Would he blow up the world, and then apologize later because his back was hurting so he didn’t study up on the issue?

Perry’s faceplant was even more stunning because he planned it. He blamed his back during the first question of the interview. Perry didn’t make an ill-advised gaffe. His reason for his horrible 2012 campaign is that he was coming off of back surgery and didn’t prepare to run.

Rick Perry is wearing his smart glasses and wants everybody to know that he isn’t dumb. His back hurts.

  1. Didn’t Perry just admit he has poor problem solving skills? It sure sounds like it to me. And he wants to be President?

  2. Damn he couldn’t get to a third reason like last time. Please someone tell me when any Democrats can be this stupid like all of the clown 747 ran for President.

  3. Governor Perry’s problem solving skills have not improved. He still thinks he is qualified to be President of the United States of America.

  4. Why don’t the reporters ask him about the standing indictment he is under? I guess that he would say that falls under the bad back also.

  5. I hurt my back during my 14 years in service to the republic in the US Army, started 2 businesses, ran them successfully, sold both, and retired at 55, and while I don’t know what Perry’s back issues were, I’d wager they were no worse than mine, and I didn’t get mine playing golf or sitting behind the Governor’s desk.

    His real anatomical issue is that his head is stuck in one of his bodily orifices, and it wouldn’t take brain surgery to figure out which one.

    “Oops!”

  6. That has to be the single lamest excuse for anything in my lifetime.

    Let me put it bluntly for Rick here: You are not stupid because of a bad back. You are stupid because you have proven time and time again that you, and your fellow conservatives, are incapable of rational thinking in this time and age.

  7. Another original verbal beat down by the braniacs on the left! Dumb republican, dumb cowboy, dumb Texan, dumb back surgery, dumb governor, dumb, dumb, stupid, dumb… this is sooo old! You forgot, racist sexist and homophobic!
    He must have been great this morning. You enjoy your ride straight into the ground with Hildabeast!

  8. I’ve had two back surgeries myself.

    But I’ve always managed to wean myself off of the pain meds they hand out like candy.

    Stupid ass excuse, but then- considering the source…

  9. JFK had a bad back and was ALWAYS prepared.

    FDR had multiple sclerosis and was ALWAYS prepared.

    How many of the 25% of UNINSURED Texans have back issues and CAN’T GET HELP because of YOU!
    You’re a Texas UNEDUCATED tea bag WUSS!

  10. A “bad back” is no excuse for being dumber than dirt on every issue. Perry, like many rw politicians, think that all they need to do to win any election is to use superficial talking points meant to make it seem as if they know what they’re talking about. They know their target audience is impressed by bluster, and they use it frequently, along with saying things to manipulate their emotions. Substance is never an important factor to them. Their primary focus is acquiring power. Once they get it, they can’t govern, as we’ve seen since GOP/TPers won majorities in both houses of Congress last November. If there’s one thing I abhor, it’s a dumb politician, but somehow they get elected. This is no way to run a representative government. A recent poll revealed that the most important quality GOP/TPers want in a presidential candidate is someone who demeans PBO. The ability to govern is not a requirement–a shameful state of affairs in what their supporters call an exceptional nation.

  11. Well, if you have anything that can prove those words wrong, then I could understand taking it back.

    But, I get the feeling that is too much work for your feeble mind since you went with the old maxim of ‘Hillary will ruin our country’.

    Look, there is nowhere to go but up and if you want to stay put in a land where idiocracy reigns supreme, go ahead. Just don’t complain when you and your fellow conservatives are left in the dust.

  12. If he blames a bad back for his lack of skills, then it must be the drugs. Didn’t we already have a bad Republican Texas president with a drug problem?

  13. Please try to develop some intellectual curiosity between now and the election this time. Be honest connoisseurs of political discourse. Find out how Governor Perry and Texas were so successful when the rest of the country was flailing. Why do the best of the best in the military endorse him? Don’t you want to know more about the stories and policies of everybody running? Do yourselves and future generations a favor, read real news sources from the right and the left and don’t keep resorting to this tripe.

  14. He were running? No wonder you think he’s smart. Get back on the intergalactic garbage scow, where you belong.

  15. WHY ISN’T THIS NEWS SHATERING!!!!

    “Under Rick Perry, the budget deficit blew out of control due to his endless tax cuts. Texas now has one of the worst deficits of any state. Under Republican rule, deficits everywhere will explode due to irresponsible tax cutting.”

    “Texas is still an extremely rightwing state. Despite being wrecked by Republican governor after Republican governor, Texans keep coming back for more. Some folks just can’t get enough abuse.”
    Texas has a state budget deficit of $27 BILLION….

  16. Bernie Sanders focuses on issues; Rick Perry focuses on minutia – “Rick Perry admitted that he is lazy, makes bad decisions, and he is unprepared. The foundation of his presidential campaign appears to be vote for me because my back doesn’t hurt, and I studied this time.”

  17. I hope you and IGNORANT RED Texas ENJOY your ride into the PIT OF *DEFICITS*
    $27 BILLION !!!!

  18. RED TEXAS HAS A STATE BUDGET DEFICIT OF $27 BILLION!!!!
    HA, and they make fun of BLUE California!

    Budget Crisis in Texas
    Currently, the State of Texas is facing a budget deficit of $27 Billion. The House and Senate appropriations bills currently show between $9.3 Billion and $10 Billion being cut to public education. It is estimated that Alamo Heights ISD could be cut by $5 to $7 million or even more, representing 20% or more in cuts. In 2004, AHISD cut $2 million from its budget and they were painful. Going through additional cuts today will compound the impact on children.

  19. he had surgery 10 days before he jumped in the race, i doubt had you had back surgery you would of been walking in 10 days, give the guy a break.

  20. Rick Perry will never be President of the United States; he’s just too far into fantasy land to know it.

    But as we can see by at least one poster here – I’m looking at you “red state mom” – he’s managed to collect a few people to live in fantasy land with him. That’s why he was governor for 12 years. He managed to fool enough of the people in Texas to keep voting for him and now they’re all cheering him on in his doomed run for the presidency.

    They lack – as evidenced by “red state mom” – the critical thinking skills necessary to see the real Rick Perry, but I think it’s safe to say that if this man ever did become president, they’d have a rude awakening back here on planet reality.

  21. The only thing dumber than rick perry are the fools in this state that kept voting for him as governor. He is a heartless, gutless sack of sh*t that I would not piss on if he were on fire.

  22. Rick Perry is a great Governor that has done more for one state than any person in the whole rest of the COUNTRY including this president to create jobs, to bring industry to Texas, his surgery was two weeks prior to jumping in the race, most people need months to heal, its not an excuse its a fact among others he mentioned, so he had a mistake in a debate? We have all had mistakes happen why crucify someone over it, we are usually a country that gives people second chances , we sure gave others a second chance? I hope you all have a great day and think about the good things about this candidate.

  23. Wasn’t he previously blaming his poor performance on his “wife?”
    Excuses, excuses.
    “Oh my back aches, my legs hurt, I’m only four.”
    Rickster acts like a four year old alright.

  24. And unfortunately, our governors are elected in non-presidential years, when voter turnout is traditionally low. I blame my fellow Democrats for not voting in every election; it’s how we’ve ended up with Republicans in every statewide office. We all need to get out and vote in every election, no matter how tired we are. With early voting, I always make sure I vote because maybe we can turn this state blue again like it was before Dubya was ever elected governor. And I still think there were shenanigans with the ballot counting on that election!

  25. http://www.ttara.org/files/document/file-52fb99dc0cdd1.pdf- no deficit in Texas, California is a black hole. This is what I mean by getting all your news from one source, one political track. You cannot be an honest voter if you have only skewed facts. In 2011 Texas adopted a balanced budget amendment. That means they have to balance their budgets. BTW, Tennessee and Florida also have similar requirements and are 3 of the seven states with no state income taxes.
    Perry’s record of growth and prosperity in Texas is undeniable.

  26. ..Yeah, but look who Texans vote into office; Ted Cruz, Louie ‘Goober’ Gohmert, and even Bush Jr…Sometimes I wish they would secede.

  27. Oh, and he was the Governor of Texas for 14 years, not 12, the longest serving governor in Texas history.
    Goodnight sheeple.

  28. FDR was left crippled by polio in mid-life just before he turned 40 which confined him to a wheelchair for the rest of his life.

  29. If you show yourself to be an uneducated dolt in the last election, in this one you shouldn’t put on glasses and admit to boning up on a few facts and “REGURGITATING” them. We want someone who has knowledge of the problems and solutions, not someone preparing for a test in high school. He’ll crash and burn soon and bow out. Also, why the Hell was he standing with two GI Joe cartoon characters at his announcement speech. He looked like some 3rd world dictator with a private “doped up” band of security rejects. Made him look like a clown.

  30. You know your first “link” above to Huffpo WRT Jerry Brown was a 404

    And now this “link” leads to “Page Not Found”

    You really got to stop playing at be authoritative with your claptrap “links”, and try to educate yourself.

  31. Hey Perry, don’t blame your back. You have a big mouth and a very small brain (usual condition for teabagger) and you HAVE NO BUSINESS running for president!

  32. Ignorance can be educated, crazy can be medicated but there is no cure for stupidity. It’s ingrained, like in his DNA. However, I would imagine that his pill addiction is responsible for alot of his erratic behavior and speech.

  35. What part of this don’t you understand??

    Budget Crisis in Texas
    Currently, the State of Texas is facing a budget deficit of $27 Billion. The House and Senate appropriations bills currently show between $9.3 Billion and $10 Billion being cut to public education. It is estimated that Alamo Heights ISD could be cut by $5 to $7 million or even more, representing 20% or more in cuts. In 2004, AHISD cut $2 million from its budget and they were painful. Going through additional cuts today will compound the impact on children.

  36. I doubt you can even read

    “The Budget crisis was caused by three things:

    In 2006, the state lowered property taxes (school taxes) by 1/3. The new business margins tax was supposed to make up for the loss in revenue, but it has fallen far short. Even in 2006, the comptroller estimated that the tax swap would result in the huge deficit occurring today. As a result, the state has a “structural deficit” that will not go away in the future unless revenues are increased or services are permanently cut.
    The state used federal stimulus money in 2009 to mandate a pay raise for all teachers in the state. That stimulus money is no longer available, but districts are still required to pay for the raise.
    The current recession has caused lower sales tax revenue.”

    Keep living in your uninformed world.

  37. Just proclaiming a BALANCED budget doesn’t make revenues go up.

    It means CUTS have to be made to balance the budget and Texas has done that to NO avail.

  38. I agree Moongrim — I’ve had back surgery three times in my life; a spinal fusion and two ruptured disks.

    None of those made me turn into an ignorant jackass like Rick Perry. What’s his excuse for all the crap he’s done when his back ISN’T hurting?

  39. Good Lord Janea!

    You are dumber than a rock. Keep living in your fantasy world though … . it entertains the sane people in our country!

  40. I might have given him a break if anything he was doing now was different. But he’s still saying stupid, idiotic stuff. No, he doesn’t deserve a break. He’s pretty dumb.[WINK]
