    Is America ready for another George W. Bush?

    From Perry, neocon tea leaves - Ben Smith - POLITICO.com
    Rick Perry has yet to launch his 2012 presidential campaign, but his meeting in Austin last week, reported in National Review and elsewhere, with a set of Republican foreign policy hands seems to offer a glimpse at his emergent platform.

    Perry reportedly met former Bush aides Doug Feith and William Luti, both strong internal backers of the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, Daniel Fata, whose article today is headed, "Why Iraq Still Matters."

    Douglas Feith
    Described by General Tommy Franks as either "the dumbest fucking guy on the planet" (according to Franks' autobiography) or "the fucking stupidest guy on the face of the Earth" (according to Bob Woodward's book Plan of Attack), Douglas Feith began his long Washington career as a Middle East specialist under Richard V. Allen at the National Security Council (1981-82), then he spent two years at the Pentagon as the staff lawyer for Assistant Secretary of Defense Richard Perle. Then in 1984 Feith was promoted to Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Negotiations Policy, where he stayed for another two-and-a-half years before leaving for the private sector.

    So because Rick Perry is also a Governor of Texas, he is exactly like President Bush?

    I guess that means that since Obama is also the President of the United States that he is exactly like President Bush too.

    Oh wait... he is, just worse.

    Hillary smooched Arafat more than her husband. Barry kissed the ass of every left wing tyrant on the planet and the left thinks Perry's meeting with Feith is news? Doesn't the left ever sleep in it's constant search for political minutia?

    Well Obama is a clone of "Buckwheat" and no real American wants 4 more years of that horsepoop economics. So what if Rick Perry talks like Bush. At least HE DOESN'T NEED A TELEPROMPTER!
