Rick Perry Won’t Be A Fool Again

CRONY CAPITALIST, BORDER SECURITY CANDIDATE VOWS TO DO BETTER IN 2016 || By FITSNEWS || Former Texas governor Rick Perry‘s 2012 presidential campaign went from frontrunner to flame out faster than you can say “First in the South.”  In fact Perry dropped out of the race before the South Carolina…


|| By FITSNEWS || Former Texas governor Rick Perry‘s 2012 presidential campaign went from frontrunner to flame out faster than you can say “First in the South.”  In fact Perry dropped out of the race before the South Carolina “Republican” presidential primary – throwing his support behind Newt Gingrich (another fiscal liberal whose candidacy imploded).

So far Perry’s 2016 bid isn’t attracting much attention … which isn’t surprising seeing as his early-state appearances have been nothing short of disastrous so far.

But Perry isn’t deterred.

“The preparation side of this is most important to me,” he told NH1 this week during a campaign stop in the Granite State.  “Three years ago we didn’t put that preparation in. It was obvious and it was a pretty short lived campaign.  This time people are going to see a substantially better prepared, whether it’s on the issues or whether it’s the organization that we put together, whether it’s the boots on the ground right here in New Hampshire.  They will see a very, very, well thought out campaign if we decide to pull that trigger.”

Perry says he will make his decision no later than June of this year …

Whatever he decides to do – and however well-prepared he is to do it – we simply cannot get behind Perry’s candidacy.  While we can appreciate his “tough guy” stance on border security (one of the few functions government is called up to perform), his rampant crony capitalism cannot be overlooked.

And he’s a sanctimonious moralizer to boot …

At the end of the day, we suspect Perry won’t run.  But if he does, we’ll be holding him accountable for his record …

Fuck Rick Perry

Don’t hold back Sparky, tell us how you really feel…

sparklecity March 13, 2015 at 1:16 pm

Even if he was a C-130 pilot………..
Plus he looked creepy as hell when he tried to “one up” Herman ‘What’s his name” by holding up a postcard sized tax form in front of the camera back in 2012

sparklecity March 13, 2015 at 1:17 pm

And his little dog too!!!!!!!!!!!!

You are just plain rude. If you based your commentary on an actual record of governance your head would explode from a chronic case of cognitive dissonance.

Buz Martin March 13, 2015 at 10:55 am

Saying he won’t run again is one thing. But saying he won’t be a fool again is like saying the sun won’t rise in the east.

FastEddy23 March 13, 2015 at 8:46 pm

Yeah! And all he really did in Texas was let some tax cuts go through and then get out of the way.

Manray9 March 13, 2015 at 11:04 am

Isn’t sanctimonious moralizing the “go to” stance for Republicans? They seem to fall into it naturally, which is amusing when examining such “distinguished” GOP figures as Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani, and our very own Mark Sanford.

nitrat March 13, 2015 at 12:49 pm

Manray9, Do you do WaPo?

Manray9 March 14, 2015 at 11:29 pm

I should have added David Vitter and Larry “Wide Stance” Craig too.

Godslayer March 13, 2015 at 11:06 am

Perry has no chance. The Big Money knows he’s unelectable idiot. Stupid doesn’t sell well outside the South.

FastEddy23 March 13, 2015 at 8:51 pm

Unlike Ted Cruz … and Marko Rubio … and Scott Walker … and Rand Paul.

The debate I’d pay money to see: Ted Cruz v. The Hildabeast.

If stupid gets you that spectacular economy I will take stupid any day.

The Bush family has already told him, “you run against Jeb, we’ll destroy your legacy in Texas.”

Trigger March 13, 2015 at 11:55 am

Fuck me and Rick Perry.

The Colonel March 13, 2015 at 11:56 am

(Channeling Anne Richards) “Poor Rick Perry he was born with his cowboy boot in his mouth….”

Actually, Perry is relatively accomplished:
Texas A&M Grad (he was a “yell leader” there)
ROTC Commissionee, became a C-130 Pilot
Started off in politics as a Democrat and after supporting AlGore he changed parties (I’d think working with AlGore would make just about anybody change parties)
Was the Texas Agriculture Commissioner and Lt Governor
Did a pretty good job as the Goobernor of Texas
Lots more executive experience than Jim Webb – but the same future.
He ain’t gonna win, he struggles to keep his size 12 boot out of his mouth and he is too far right for most moderate Republicans.

nitrat March 13, 2015 at 12:46 pm

And, don’t forget that there is video of him in New Hampshire from Oct. 2011, I believe, of him so pill-ed up it brought out the metrosexual in him big time.

The Colonel March 13, 2015 at 1:00 pm

Meh, that’s kind of become a liberal talking point about him but I don’t know that I buy it.

Texas Land Commissioner, Jerry Patterson called him a “metrosexual” over his decision to quit wearing cowboy boots because of a back problem. Here’s the video that started the “metrosexual thing”:

Perry was apparently using painkillers during the debates in 2011 and the two issues are not linked except the fact that they’re related to a pain in the back or neck or ass, whatever…

Here’s Colbert’s take on it:

southmauldin March 13, 2015 at 1:01 pm

You left out the part where he jogs while wearing a gun.

jeffbwillis March 17, 2015 at 12:46 pm

Being slightly to the right of Jeb Bush and left of Ted Cruz could work to Perry’s advantage. Combining Executive experience with military experience is a unique selling proposition in the crowded Republican field. To hear the Perry camp explain it, Al Gore change drastically after 1988. Then, he was reminiscent of Sam Nunn. He later became Bill Bradley.

For reals March 13, 2015 at 12:00 pm

Shouldn’t he be worrying about his abuse of power charges first, then maybe think about providing comedy writers with easy material by running for president later?

southmauldin March 13, 2015 at 1:01 pm

But he has a new pair of glasses that doubled his IQ the minute he put them on. Kinda like a reverse Sarah Palin.

Bible Thumper March 13, 2015 at 4:28 pm

I am not a fan of Perry, but the abuse of power charges helps him. Everyone outside of Austin agrees that unless you were paid money or favors, you can’t criminalize a veto.

GrandTango March 13, 2015 at 12:35 pm

But will Tommy Ravenel and Tom Ervin??

Saluda Rapids March 13, 2015 at 1:14 pm

It’s President Perry, as you refer to him. Good call dude! Spectacularly wrong much?

GrandTango March 13, 2015 at 1:44 pm

Live in liberal mythology in order to hold on much????LMAO…

You people get your @$$#$ kicked so much…just like you do to protect your liberal-god politicians…you just lie…to cover your ignorance…H#!! of a way to live, is it not?

Short-term memory much?

Once a fool, always a fool March 13, 2015 at 1:44 pm

Won’t be a fool again? When did he stop?

GrandTango March 13, 2015 at 1:51 pm

1- There’s plenty of time.

2- I told all of you when Perry announced for 2012, his success in Texas, in the face of Disastrous failure by Obama, that he was an excellent candidate. And in hindsight I was 1,000 percent right. Just look at the country and the even bigger mess Obama has made in the 2 years since 2012. Texas has just become more successful. They even advanced pro-life legislation.

3 – And I also told you Perry’s choice of SC “consultant” team could be the death of his campaign. (research it, I’m sure you can find it, unless you’re a blind liberal Dumb@$$)… And I was 1,000 percent right about that too…It was the team that Sanford obliterated in 2002…even though that team was paid LAVISHLY to beat Sanford, the upstart and petulant johnny-come-lately…

4- I call this stuff so right sometimes, it even scares me….

Congratulations. You should start your own blog.

GrandTango March 13, 2015 at 3:50 pm

Already got 2. How many you got Dumb@$$?…about as many as you have original thoughts???…LMAO….

Try To Keep Up March 13, 2015 at 3:59 pm

Two??? Where at? Link to them. I don’t see them. All I see are your typical juvenile insults. As far as MY original thoughts, they are lost on you because you choose to ignore because they would force you to admit your errors. Your thoughts are nothing but the same predictable, pre-programmed responses to everything. Thank you for revealing who, and what, you are.

GrandTango March 13, 2015 at 4:10 pm

I’m going to invite some delusional, obsessed leftwing psycho into my REAL (professional) world…Are you F*#king crazy???.. (no need to answer)…LMAO…Have you not read what happened in Ferguson Mo. just 2 days ago?????…that shooter is the kind of envious nutjob, I envision you to be…

You’re not only very limited intellectually, you’re bitter, jealous, irrational, hateful and would do anything you can to hurt my ability to feed my family…STALK Much????

You’re about as fit to truly associate w/ me in my professional life, as Obama and Holder are to hold sway over our Law Enforcement officers…(or anything else)…

I’m educated, accomplished and very polished in my business…I have to be or I’d go broke….

I’m afraid I would not even let someone on your level empty my trash, unless you straightened up your life and learned some respect for those of us who pull the wagon, and pay the bills….

Try To Keep Up March 13, 2015 at 4:44 pm

Another delusional rant full of hypocritical assertions and maniacal projections. You don’t faze me with any of your lies. You actually sound like one of those malcontents in Ferguson, that’s the hysterical part. They don’t give a rat’s behind about truth. Whenever they are confronted with it, they run away and start making up more lies to cover the truth. You do the same thing every time and it’s never been more apparent than now. You are a typical self-absorbed liberal. Either stick to the point or don’t respond at all. Quit making unsubstantiated assertions. Stop being “bitter, jealous and hateful” that you claim of others. I know you wouldn’t want to get on my level or you might actually have to confront your errors that I constantly point (and that go ignored by you and your Ferguson-protester Mindset). Good luck and until you get over your derangement and decide to link to your work, I guess I will have to accept your censoring of conservative ideas.

GrandTango March 13, 2015 at 6:38 pm

You are one ignorant MoFo…LMAO…You simply wait for me to accurately describe you for what you are…then copy it and throw it at me, as if no one is going to notice…Hahahaha…

More stupid?…unable to think for yourself??….or thinking no one will notice what you are doing???…LMAO…

Try To Keep Up March 13, 2015 at 6:58 pm

Hey bro, you already lost this discussion. I already made this same argument about YOU. I’ve pointed it out SPECIFICALLY numerous times. Now you’re reduced to repeating what I say by saying I repeat what you say. Hysterical! I point out stuff you bring up ( a la the fact that you sound exactly like the Ferguson protesting dopes) because of the irony. That’s not repeating what you say, it’s called using what you say against you. Reading comprehension shouldn’t be hard for someone claiming to be educated. I thought I told you to stay on point or don’t respond at all. I’ve already told you what the specific subjects are. Address them or just keep embarrassing yourself. Here’s what you’ve taught us all tonight: Blogs can’t be linked to because 2 cops were shot in Ferguson the other day. Wow, what incredible logic you have there!

Oh, and good luck to your Dawgs against my Gamecocks tonight.

Jan March 15, 2015 at 5:38 pm

Big T’s past predictions
President Perry
President Palin
President Santorum
President Gingrich
President Romney
You just can’t overlook these stats. Being wrong 100% of the time is really hard to do.

GrandTango March 15, 2015 at 6:32 pm

When reality (like me) slaps the S#!t out of F*#king idiots like you…you just lie. I guess it beats looking like the F*#king Dumb@$$ you are, over and over…does it not?

Grand Tango! I am in total agreement regarding Dave Carney. He never put it together. Maybe it’s because he’s used to representing candidates in “blue states.”

Nölff March 13, 2015 at 2:21 pm

Don’t let those glasses fool you. His PR guys probably told him to wear them after Ron Paul embarrassed him at the Republic primary debate. “I forgot the other one… Ewwps” Perry is smarter than a jar of mayonase but not as smart as a microwave.

Republicans love to say “boots on the ground” for some reason.

Bible Thumper March 13, 2015 at 4:17 pm

Google “Hillary Perry glasses” and click the images tab……
Perfect match.

Toyota Kawaski March 13, 2015 at 4:24 pm

shove that trophey up Katons and your ass Rick!!!

joy March 15, 2015 at 6:45 pm

You are do not belong on any serious political discussion contribute absolutely nothing just like what is between your ears.

jeffbwillis March 15, 2015 at 11:18 am

Anyone who can’t accept that he is the most qualified Republican with the best resume, is simply “brain dead!” Or, in an acute state of denial…

joy March 15, 2015 at 6:05 pm

The best resume of either party.But we havent‘t elected based on experience in governing in the last 2 presidentials.

jeffbwillis March 17, 2015 at 12:33 pm

Yet, we really need to focus more on previous accomplishments. We didn’t do that in 2008 obviously! And, we can see where it got us. The “Obamabatts” are in denial regarding how soft the economy truly is.

jeffbwillis March 16, 2015 at 12:33 pm

While watching debates is fun and informative, this isn’t about who is the best debater! It’s about which candidate is most qualified to assume the role as “leader of the free world.” Perry has more Executive experience than any Republican, including Jeb Bush. Plus, he has military experience! To top it off, he has run a large diverse state which shares a 1200 mile border with a foreign country. Most know about Texas’ economic report card. But is everyone aware that there are now 13 colleges and universities in Texas that offer a four-year degree for $10,000? This is a true middle class issue and it was one of Perry’s signature achievements while Governor.
