The political scene in the
is the most dismal it’s ever been. Not only do we have to deal with the Tea Party Taliban, a completely incompetent Congress, and a seriously ailing economy, but now we’re into this miserable election cycle where the candidates will be telling so many lies that they and we won’t be able to keep track of their stupidity. U.S.
Enter Rick Perry,
governor. Macho man. Please God, not another, rip-snortin’, swaggering, faux cowboy. We had one of those already. The damage Bush did was bad enough. This guy promises to be even worse. How can a candidate for President be so ignorant as to accuse the Chairman of the Federal Reserve of treason? Perry is the same guy who made over-the-top statements about Texas Texas secession and who brags about his prowess in creating jobs in (minimum wage jobs that no one can survive on). This is a man who puts his finger in the air to see which way the wind is blowing and then adjusts his rhetoric accordingly. This does not make him a man who stands by his word. This is a sidewinder. He’s giving us an old story with all those old cowboy clichés. If you want your life to feel like a parched, southwestern desert, vote for this buckaroo. Texas
As for Obama, all I can say it’s time to stop playing Mr. Nice Guy. His mama must have been intent on not raising a cowboy. He needs to understand that bullies rarely understand reason or kindness. Sometimes you need to tak’em down. Obama took down Osama. The President now needs to focus on the Tea Party Taliban and all those so intent on destroying him that they would destroy our country too. Otherwise, we’re all going to be scraping the shit off our boots on the backs of our pant legs.
