Presidential candidate Mitt Romney and others are calling for Rick Perry to repudiate the hateful words of a Texas Pastor who described Romney as a cultist and unchristian because of his affiliation with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The Perry team says that the call to repudiate is an attempt to change the subject as if the call to condemn is somehow unwarranted. By doing so they are trivializing the pastors words and giving a tacit endorsement to his hateful comments.
Until Perry publicly renounces the comments and the un-christian like pastor he is unworthy to be the nominee for the Republican Party. If Perry has a problem with Mormons he should have the courage to say so himself instead of using surrogates such as the pastor. It is time for Rick Perry to end his presidential bid and go back to private life.
Great hair. He comes across like a combination of Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. The late, celebrated Texas columnist Molly Ivins described Governor Rick Perry as “not the sharpest knife in the drawer.” Where is Molly when we really need her? Of course, she tried to warn us about Bush, too.
Perry likes to go around saying that Texas is responsible for more than 40 percent of all of the new jobs created in America. In reality, Texas ranks dead last in total job creation. It would have been worse except for 125,000 public sector jobs added between 2007 and 2010. Oh, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics says Texas is tied for the top spot in the nation for population making nothing more than minimum wage.
The funniest thing about Rick Perry: He’s the new GOP front-runner.
UPDATE: He’s learning… Perry ducks a question about his claim that Social Security is unconstitutional.
