George W. Bush
on steroids. Take all the bad things about Bush and amplify by 10 and you have Rick Perry.
Utters "Amurica!" and "Freedum!" in every sentence instead of every other sentence.
Even more hawkish - carries a gun with him at all times, and is known to use it on small animals that get too close.
Greater religious fanaticism - In April of 2011, as governor of Texas, held an "official" prayer rally for rain in his drought-stricken state. Let's see how that worked out for him: in April only 60% of Texas was under severe drought according to the UNL drought monitor. As of September 20, 99% of the state is under severe drought with 85% under exceptional drought. In other words, a true Texas miracle. Also believes creationism should be taught in public schools.
Instead of just privatizing social security, wants to completely abolish it, so grandma is just supposed to starve I guess.
Even greater hypocrisy - as governor of Texas, threatened to secede from the U.S. over the passage of the stimulus act. He then took $17.4 billion in funds made available by the stimulus act to help plug his state's ballooning budget deficit and create most of the jobs he brags about creating. Yet, he declined $500 million in funds to help educate youth in Texas.
Even less qualified - graduated from Texas A&M with a 2.22 GPA, earning a C in U.S. history and a D in economics. Interestingly he got an A in world military systems. Better watch your ass Iran.
If you thought Bush
was a good president, or you are a masochist
, vote Rick Perry. For the other 80% of us, there is sanity.
