Rick Perry has yet to tell the truth. Unemployment in Texas is extremely high. Education in Texas is not balanced, as Perry would have you believe. Perry even jogs with a weapon on his person. He did not create jobs as Texas governor, in fact, allowing for people who had moved into that warm weather state, employment actually went down as a percentage. Perry was a Democrat until he realized that would not get him elected.
And Perry wants the White House to be a revival tent for pentecostals, fundamentalists, and others who mix error-filled Bible interpretations with mythology. Ask any theologian. His facts about Christianity are the stuff of myths. Just believe it as Perry tells it and you will be saved (and rich) (and employed) (and...well, you get the idea). Ask him about his old buddy, Al Gore, and how he explains that away. Would you really want to be a friend of Rick Perry's? Really?
And we could turn to Michelle Bachman, but if you can't see through her phony religious mythology, you need new glasses. Listen to her. She sometimes makes Sarah Palin look like Einstein.
Mitt Romney at least has some rationality to his Mormonism [if that's possible]. Romney might have been a legitimate candidate if he hadn't decided to run away from his extremely successful health care reform as Governor of Massachusetts. Many of us envy what Romney did with health care there. But as with the other candidates running for President, Republican and Democrat, there are promises but not much else. At least Obama makes some intellectual and rational sense. But, alas, we are once again subjected to an embarrassingly poor cast of characters vying to become Preident of the United States. Yes, folks, the U.S. is in decline. Just look at who we have had to choose for President: Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, Bush II, and there were other candidates who were even worse.
Perry makes G. W. Bush look like a Rhodes Scholar...or as they say in Texas, a Roads Skolar.
By some miracle, could we please have an up-grade in the candidates for President of the U.S.?
