Rick Perry Super Stupid

The New Rick Perry is Still Saying Stupid Shit

Written by SK Ashby

Former Texas Governor Rick Perry may be running for president as a new version of himself that will not melt down on the debate stage, but that doesn't mean he won't still find opportunities to say stupid shit.

Exhibit A:

Earlier this week, during his press conference at the G7 Summit in Germany, President Barack Obama said in response to a question about the fight against ISIS, “We don’t yet have a complete strategy, because it requires commitments on the part of the Iraqis.”


“It’s this lack of really being able to connect the dots, I think it’s a lack of executive experience that this president has, as well as a philosophical void when it comes to understanding what it takes to keep America safe,” Perry added.

That's the joke.

While we're on the subject, the "we don't have a complete strategy" line has been thoroughly misreported and distorted by the media and conservative pundits. The president's comments came in response to a question concerning the training of Iraqi soldiers. It was not a question concerning the overall strategy for defeating ISIS.
