No sooner had I posted the earlier Perry video than this one came in, and it truly boggles the mind in its simplicity. In case you have trouble watching it, here’s the script:
Gov. Perry: “When you run for president, you get a bunch of questions about your faith.”
Text: Rick Perry
“People want to know what drives you, how you make decisions.”
“Now some liberals say that faith is a sign of weakness. Well they’re wrong. I think we all need God’s help.”
“America’s greatest leaders have been people of strong faith, strong values. That makes for a strong America.”
“I’m Rick Perry, I’m not ashamed to talk about my faith, and I approve this message.”
Really? That’s it? You spend who knows how many thousands of dollars producing this and getting it aired, you have this golden opportunity to address the entire nation on the subject of God, the universe and everything, the ultimate questions, and that’s what you say? I’m one a them good folks whut believes in the Lord, and not one a them heathen lib’ruls.
And this is supposed to work for you?
Tell you what, Rick. Go read Matthew 6:5. In fact, read the whole chapter. Run along, now, there’s a good lad…
