    Is Rick Perry dumb? - Jonathan Martin - POLITICO.com

    Strip away the euphemisms and Rick Perry is confronting an unavoidable question: Is he dumb — or just “misunderestimated?”

    Doubts about Perry’s intellect have hounded him since he was first elected as a state legislator nearly three decades ago. In Austin, he’s been derided as a right-place, right-time pol who looks the part but isn’t so deep — “Gov. Goodhair.” Now, with the chatter picking back up among his enemies and taking flight in elite Republican circles, the rap threatens to follow him to the national stage.

    “He’s like Bush only without the brains,” cracked one former Republican governor who knows Perry, repeating a joke that has made the rounds.

    Perry isn't dumb at all, the person suggesting this on the other hand (not you the person in the linked article) is pretty stupid to go there in light of the Perry record.

    Perry: 10 and 0 election record
    Perry: 47% of all net jobs added to the us economy, during obama's presidency, came from Texas alone under Perry's leadership.

    You can't keep getting re-elected nor can you have the best jobs record in the country without having brains. Basically to many liberals if you don't believe in the issues the same way that they do you are a "Moron or hateful"



    This reminds me of a funny picture i saw the other day...........speaks to the average liberal media outlet's mindset.

    Is this the extent of the Democrat playbook? Anyone who is Republican is "dumb". Are you that bereft of ideas that you can't run against a candidate with anything other than trying to claim they are dumb?

    If you guys are so much smarter than anyone else, why can't you persuade people to listen to you rather than resorting to ridicule?

    Apparently Obama is ultra intelligent.

    Exactly where has that gotten us?

    Not at all!!! Huntsman doesn't appear to be dumb. Paul doen't appear to be dumb. Just the front runners, but then they're playing to their base!!! Read into that whatever you like. :eusa_whistle:
