As The (GOP) World Turns - Trump meets Perry
The Soap Opera continues...
Like sands through the hourglass so are the Days of GOP Lives
Rick Perry, falling fast in the GOP presidential candidate polls, says he doesn’t know that the birth certificate President Obama released in April is real, after he had a meeting with birther conspiracist and former GOP presidential candidate dangler Donald Trump. Trump’s entire platform consisted of questioning President Obama’s credibility based upon Trump’s inability to prove Obama was not born a U.S. citizen. source
Word to the un-Wise (that be you Rick Perry):
Governor Perry, it may not be a safe tactic for you - the man that hunted at Niggerhead Lodge - to replay Comb-over head's (the donald) failed Birther strategy in order to regain traction in your sputtering bid to win the GOP presidential nomination.
Gov, I know you hail from the state that likes to re-write history ,but Donald Chump was very publicly beaten-down to irrelevance by President Obama at the Correspondents Dinner :
After a week when Obama released his long-form Hawaii birth certificate, he said Trump could now focus on the serious issues, from whether the moon landing actually happened to "where are Biggie and Tupac?"
"No one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than 'the Donald,'" Obama said, referring to Trump's claims the same day that he was responsible for solving the issue.
For Trump's decision to fire actor Busey instead of rock singer Meat Loaf from his TV show earlier this month, Obama quipped: "These are the types of decisions that would keep me up at night. Well handled, sir."
Trump chuckled at some of the earlier jokes, but was clearly less amused as comedian Seth Meyers picked up where Obama left off.
"Donald Trump often talks about running as a Republican, which is surprising," said the Saturday Night Live actor, entrusted with providing some of the comedy for the evening. "I just assumed he was running as a joke."
And later, in the same double KO weekend (yes Trump suffered two smacked downs), Obama Inc. ended Bin Laden's terrorist career and the announcement preempted Trump's show The Apprentice.
While your uptick with Tea Party folks (the non-thinking Americans) may give you a temporary boost, in the long run, this strategy will doom you with the folks in the middle called Independents (if you get that far).
Gov. Perry, I suggest you leave Trump in the political gutter he resides and stick to what you know best. Oh, can you remind what exactly that is again, is it hunting?
