Election 2012

The Dumbest Thing from the Dumbest Debate

This from Rick Perry:

"I would send troops back into Iraq," he said. "I think we start talking with the Iraqi individuals there. The idea that we allow the Iranians to come back into Iraq and take over that country, with all of the treasure, both in blood and money, that we have spent in Iraq -- because this president wants to kowtow to his liberal leftist base, and move out those men and women. He could have renegotiated that time frame. I think it is a huge error for us."

And there you have it. The death rattle of the Perry campaign. So long, Governor Yickadoo!

    Well Romney’s “Only the rich should run for office” was a close second.

    As I watched him say that last night…I knew that he’d be back in Texas shootin’ his guns in no time! My thought, he should have taken more time in Texas to “assess” his campaign. Opps!

    Perry is nothing but a better looking double-ya.

      A commenter at Talking Points Memo (I think) said Rick Perry was George W. Bush minus 40 IQ points.

    ..but… but… Iran is going to take over Iraq at literally the speed of light! Literally!

    Even the Neo-Cons probably cringed when he said that, because they have their eye on Iran now. Iraq is damaged goods to them.

      I can see the wheels turning, though.

      “We have to invade Iran to prevent them from taking over Iraq!”

    I didn’t see the debate.

    I was gonna say, to your blog post title, “how the hell can you split hairs so finely, to crown just ONE statement?”.

    But now I have read the proposed winner, and totally get you.

    Yeah- he won’t become your president, but I can’t seem to manage to keep him out of my governor’s office.

      You may be able to NEXT time:) He’s made such an impression….and I don’t mean that in a GOOD way!
