Will Rick Perry get back the Tea Party love?
He sure is trying. Some recent statements
he made on O'Reilly's show:
“This president’s traveled around the country making excuses for America, apologizing for America, saying that America is not an exemplary country, and then he gets on TV and talks about that Americans are lazy, that they’ve lost their ambition, that they’ve lost their imagination.”
“I think this is a man who really, if he believed that Americans were hardworking, that they were ready to ignite this economy, then we wouldn’t have the tax policy, wouldn’t have the regulatory policies in place that are killing jobs in this country.”
“I think Barack Obama is a socialist.”
Pretty insane stuff. Obama supports a particular tax policy because he thinks American's aren't hardworking. Right.
Thing is, 30-40% of this country is insane right along with him.
There may be no solution other than to let the conservatives continue and perhaps finish the demolition job they got started 1995-2005.
It's especially ironic since Obama's remark about laziness was aimed at the government and thus more or less a Republican talking point.
But since Obama is in office the GOPsters bash their own ideas as satanic the moment they get adopted by the president (and sometimes even say so: "I was for it but when I found out that Obama was too I had to realize that the idea was actually terrible").
