He (surprise..suprise) questioned Pres. Obama patriotism for not serving in the military, called him the "greatest threat to our country" and then in the most inflamatory language said that if the Fed. print more money, that Ben Bernanke would be quilty of treason and that "we would treat him pretty ugly in Texas"( the Texas where Kennedy was treated "ugly"). This is mindless incitement and he should be held responsible for it.
Even Karl Rove, Bush's guru and of Fox news and Republican strategist denounced him. That in itself is revealing.
Perry's appeal is limited to the Christian right and to Texas. He has become the latest " Christian conservative" a la Bachmann etc to fight for that segment of voters. He is the new Palin/Bachmann shallow loudmouth who are good at muttering inanities and play upon the ignorance and prejudices of American voters. They have little to offer (Bachmann's latest is the celebration of Elvis birthday on the day of his death). but much hateful rhetoric and a sideshow of short burst of platitudes.
God help/save America from these buffoons.
