Funny how they never refute your facts or provide anything other than emotion and hatred. Must be part of the liberal/progessive brain disorder. Logic and reason need not enter the discussion. lol

I am old enough to remember Reagan and how the media portrayed him as a smiliar bumbler to Rick Perry
Just because Reagan gave the USA the worst recession and the highest unemployment since WWII...

I think it's funny how Rick Perry walks on to a stage and proves that he is an intellectual lightweight- e.g., can't remember the three departments he was going to eliminate- and I guess because the cameras were rolling, it is the "media's fault" that he looked like an idiot.

Perry can hire new speechwriters and put on glasses he thinks makes him look smarter but- not unlike Palin- he is not going to be able to hide from open microphones and reporters wanting him to respond off the script.

Democrats will pray that he runs...

A source in Texas passed The Huffington Post Perry’s transcripts from his years at Texas A&M University. The future politician did not distinguish himself much in the classroom. While he later became a student leader, he had to get out of academic probation to do so. He rarely earned anything above a C in his courses — earning a C in U.S. History, a D in Shakespeare, and a D in the principles of economics. Perry got a C in gym.

Perry also did poorly on classes within his animal science major. In fall semester 1970, he received a D in veterinary anatomy, a F in a second course on organic chemistry and a C in animal breeding. He did get an A in world military systems and “Improv. of Learning”— his only two As while at A&M.

“A&M wasn’t exactly Harvard on the Brazos River,” recalled a Perry classmate in an interview with The Huffington Post.“This was not the brightest guy around. We always kind of laughed. He was always kind of a joke.”

At least we see what he did in college. No one except his criminal corrupt organization has ever saw a thing from Obozo's college days.

Yeah and we've seen how your hero Obozo has done without his teleprompter and the 57 states he's been to. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL. Obozo can't put together a coherent thought without his teleprompter.

I don't fault Perry for his genetic inheritance. In fact, I suspect that he may have worked diligently to do his best in college — as we know, he's certainly an ambitious guy. On the other hand, he is certainly responsible for shifting position on refugee immigration from compassion to militarizing the border with Texas National Guard just to please the right wing extremist fringe in his quest to secure presidential nomination.

If someone were to slip Obama's top secret grades to Huffpo they would never see the outside of a shredder again.

After the Secret Service & IRS raided them that is.

I think it is funny that any Republican on the stage in 2012 would have made a better more mature President then the man child ACORN and their dead, and multi voters gave us. Fortunately we won't have that in 2016. Many states have Voter ID now, and those who don't will have trained poll watchers looking for the multi voters. The dead are a little harder to find.
