Left-Wing Politico Asks: Is Rick Perry Dumb?

Liberal Media Asks: “Is Rick Perry Dumb?”
After all, he’s only created half of all the new jobs in America in the past year.

Obviously, at the Politico, experiencing massive success must mean you’re dumb.
What horrible people.

Now, if they asked the same question about Obama at least it would have merit. We’re still trying to decide if he is an idiot for blowing a trillion dollars on a failed stimulus, or if he’s some kind of evil genius purposely trying to destroy the American economy.
But the corrupt media will never touch that.

    The only horrible people are ones like GP for repeating the lie. Perry and Texas created the most minimum wage jobs in all 50 states. Over 500,000 people make minimum wage in Texas. What a record of success your Neo-Con boy Perry has.

    The only people dumber than Rick Perry are the Neo-Cons that support him. Back in 1988, Rick Perry supported Al Gore for president. In fact, Rick Perry actually served as Al Gore’s campaign chairman in the state of Texas that year.

    The answer is YES Rick Perry is dumb.

    The latter is true not the former.

    Obama’s intent on the destruction of America

    As founded. Obama=evil

  • Militant Conservative

    Hey dumba$$ #1.

    Minimum wage or in Obama’s case no jobs.

    Hmmmmm seems to me a slam dunk.

    Obama, proof that evil socialist do breed.

    Powder is dry

    Ripped # 1 — Perry’s record as a 3 term Goivernor creating jobs is out there for all to see. He has done a good job for Texas while Obama has spent 1 trillion and has yet to create one job.

    We like the fact that we know where Perry was born. He is a 5th generation Texan who served as a Pilot in the military. He is a tough cookie who has created a business friendly environment for job creation. Perry loves God, Country and our Constitution.

    So having a job is now a bad thing?

    When will idiots like you realize that a minimum wage job is for gaining employment experience and the incentive to better one’s self. The whole canard of a living wage is beyond laughable.

    But keep pushing the lies so even more people can be dependent on the government. We ain’t Socialist enough yet for morons like you.

    Yep, I’m dumb enough to believe that a minimum wage job is better than no job at all. I wish Obama were that dumb too.

    It offers the pride and dignity of a ‘paycheck’, the fact you are earning your own way in the world, not mooching entirely off others like a parasite, and in most cases the chance to learn and advance yourself.

    I’m retired now, and I haven’t worked for minimum wage since I was in my 20s. But it says a great deal that liberals try to smear Perry for creating minimum wage jobs while defending Obama for creating no net jobs at all.

  • RKflorida

    I would tell obambi to his face that he is a lying, marxist, idiot. Not so sure the lefties should do the same with Perry. Just the look on his face tells me he would probably pop you a good one.

  • FurryGuy

    I may have some qualms about Governor Perry and his record, but being considered dumb is not one of them.

    The MFM equates empty-headed higher education with the ability to think. Too bad for them common sense trumps book-learning in the real world.

    Let’s see how we can burst Ripped’s bubble.

    1) Texas has a lot of immigrants, legal and illegal, and they tend to take more minimum wage jobs. That pushes the number of such jobs up.

    2) Texas has a lot of younger workers compared to other states, and younger workers tend to take lower-paying, including minimum-wage, jobs.

    3) Texas at least has minimum wage jobs; New York and California do not. If the choice is a minimum wage job versus unemployment, which one is better? I think it is the former, but I’d be curious which Ripped thinks is better.

    Well I do know that there is ample proof that BHO is a moron, here is a sample.

    I think it is something in the water at the DNC; they keep pounding on the ‘dumb fighter pilot’ meme. They did it to Dubya and now are doing it to Perry.

    Any pilot (military or commercial) has to understand: aeronautics, physics, electrical and hydraulic systems, flight information, weather, math, and reading comprehension at a pretty high level. That pilot needs physical endurance and some strength, particularly in a military plane.

    Pilots also have to make judgements, integrate complex information, set and execute priorities (sometimes VERY quickly!), and keep their cool.

    Dang, all that sounds like good training for a future governor. Or president.

    Remind me, what was Mr. Obama’s training for the presidency?

    Inquiring minds (by definition not liberals) want to know: Is Obama dumb?

    Answer: yes.

    OT.. ht Jasser; AIFD

    The following report by Daniel Greenfield begins to expose the intellectual dishonesty and corruption of the 130 page report released last week from the Center for American Progress and its Islamists and supporters. The Center’s report among others targets AIFD and Dr. Jasser with the typical unethical smears of guilt by association and sarcastic dismissals and denials with not one iota of any new ground or any substantive critique of our work at AIFD. This so called scholarly report rehashes and reprints most of the screeds from The Nation and Media Matters circulated against Dr. Jasser during the King Hearings in March. While CAP’s funding is “secret” odds are that they are part of the machinery of Soros et.al….

    Silencing Critics of Islamic Extremism

    [In a staggering expose, the Center for American Progress has released a 130-page report revealing that organizations which investigate Islamic radicalism are funded by money, not sunshine. One of the report’s authors, Faiz Shakir, was immediately invited to come on Keith Olbermann’s show to discuss this amazing discovery.]

    You ignorant Neo-Con’s will settle for anything thrown your way, being better than 0bama is a far cry from what this country needs. 0bama has been creating jobs at McDonald’s and you hypocrites have been all over him for it, but when Perry creates like Jobs as Wal-Mart greeters he’s a hero. Is this what the far right has become, nothing but a bunch of insult hurling inbreds that will settle for anything just to get rid of 0bama?

    Rick Perry has a record that should make all Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians and Independents cringe.

    He is not the “conservative Republican” that he is trying to claim that he is. He is simply another in a long line of “RINOs” (Republicans in name only).

    Look, the truth is that another four years of Barack Obama would be a complete and total nightmare. But so would four years of Rick Perry. America deserves better than the “lesser of two evils”. Unfortunately, the American people have been dead asleep and have been sending incompetents, con men and charlatans to Washington D.C. for decades.

    Hopefully you clowns will wake up.

    Oooh, you have so wounded us with your foaming at the mouth rant, pejoratively calling us Neo-Cons. How ever will we get by without your imbecilic wisdom?

  • jeremiah lloyd

    Doubtful Perry created minimum wage jobs as number one panic downer claims. Perry’s average and general numbers for good paying jobs will far exceed other states as well.

    Funny how ripped liberal minds never bring facts and will resort to all types of gymnastics if they have to bring actual statistics and facts. What choice do they have? There is never any truth in their claims.

    Perry’s minimum wage jobs are unlike Malibu’s best month for jobs where MacDonalds hired 60k workers?

  • Obamas regulation destroy jobs

    Obama is the DUMBO of the YEAR: #1 At least Perry knows there are 50 states versus 57; and least he knows the spelling between corpseman and corpsman…; and he knows how to spell Libya versus LIBYIA; and he can spell Syracuse versus Sycacuse;Obama Misspells “Advice” in Letter to Fan “”Chicago Sun Times–April 21, 2009: After receiving a heart-felt letter from Michael Powers, who criticized the president for his smoking habit, Obama hand-writes a response, “Michael — Thanks so much for the wonderful letter, and the good advise …obama dumbo has to have a teleprompter every friggin place he goes because he is sooooooooooo dumb!
    Jan. 20 to July 20, 2009: Whether it’s brief introductory remarks or drawn-out policy speeches, Obama doesn’t go anywhere without his TelePrompter. On several occasions, his reliance on it results in some embarrassing moments, such as April 27, 2009, when, speaking to scientists at the National Academy of Sciences, Obama’s TelePrompter soars ahead of him and loses the president altogether. To regain his place, he is forced to completely stop his speech until it’s rolled back. On July 13, 2009 his TelePrompter completely falls apart and shatters on the floor as he delivers a speech on the economy at the White House. His continued use of the device prompts some in the media to dub him the “TelePrompter-In-Chief.” Off-camera, of course!April 22, 2009: Obama flies to and from Iowa, making two trips on Air Force One and four trips on Marine One, burning at least 9,000 gallons of fuel on the 895-mile cross-country excursion. The president makes the trip so he can plant a single tree and deliver a speech on the importance of using alternative energy.
