Rick Perry, 11 year Governor of Texas has certainly rocked the political scene by tossing his spurs into the ring as a candidate for president. He has a record out there and people are finding things to dislike. Most of the criticism seems to be in the context of slighting the Governor to help the chosen candidate of this or that Perry detractor. The Paulbots hate Perry as much as they like their sick brand of Libertarianism. Take my word for it, as a Perry supporter, they have blistered me on Twitter. My favorite: You are a loser who supports the TSA and enjoys the Iraq war. Uh, what to say to @RhondaParsons? Put down the bong?
Forget the Paulbots, it’s the left that is panicked by Perry. They know the threat to their man Obama. His wholesale statist failures stack up poorly against Rick Perry and the overall success of Texas. The left is always crazy but Perry has put them totally round the bend. Yes, Perry is scary to their man but holy mackinoly, look what happens on Fox when a discussion of the Perry comments on Fed Chair Bernanke devolve into absolute derangement.
Tamara Holder, totally unhinged . . . somebody get a straight jacket. She keeps saying “Scary Perry”. What to say to her? Put down the Kool-Aid?
She and the DNC should be scared. Perry will kill Obama in November 2012, electorally speaking, of course.
