Your perfect example of a southern Republican- eliminate taxes and funding to schools and then take credit for your state's economy.
Rick Perry declares 3 straight days of prayer to get rain. But hey, only in Texas...
Essentially, George Bush on sterorids. Expect a third war and more of the "We're fucking Amurica, the greatest country on earth bitches!"-like attitude under the Perry administration.
If you have half a brain vote for Ron Paul instead- the only Republican candidate who is NOT a thieving, lying piece of scum and the only man who deserves to be President.
Britain: "Fuck. Not again..."
Russia: "Haha! Soviet Russia come back again, America go down shitter!"
Middle East: "Oh shit." *Nukes itself*
Perry: "Iran git your asses ready, Amurica's comin' to save the day! AMURICA! FUCK YEAH!"
He won in 2006 with a whopping 39% of the vote.
He rode in on Dubya's coattails.
A vote for Rick Perry is a vote for Bush. Unfortunately, the shit-kickers and suburban retards think Bush was the greatest president ever since Ronald Raygun.
Despite what Perry says, Texas is a de facto sanctuary state that is billions in the hole with a piss-poor education system. We barely escaped from the financial crisis due to the fact that Texas has been immune to economic collapse since the 1800s and Perry had nothing to do with that.
Hitler would have been in office less than Rick Perry if he wins this year.
Remember to vote for Bill White on November 2nd. He may not have the greatest hair, but at least he's not a slimeball bastard.
I'm suave as you can see
Soon I will be president...
Obama power will soon go 'way
I will be fuhrer one day
I will command all of you
Your kids will pray to God in school.
Texas Uber Alles.
He believes that you can pray away forest fires and calls the recession a punishment from God. According to him, the problems facing America and the state of Texas are to great to be solved by humans, so he got 30.000 people together in a big sports stadium to pray for the future...instead of, you know, doing something about the issues.
The next few days, the Dow Jones plummeted. God must really hate Rick Perry.
Executions give him a big ol' boner. 234 on them since he's been govenour.
Of course, he is a against abortion and homosexuality for no other reason than "Jesus said it's wrong". He's against social security aswell, calling it an "illegal Ponzi scheme".
In most Western countries, nobody would take this idiot seriously and would probably be labeled a fascist, but in America he is a serious candidate for the Rep. nomination for presidency. Thank you, Fox News and stupid people. Thank you.
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.
2. Someone who steals taxpayers' money in order to get elected.
3. A Texas Republican....need I say more?
