There is only so much of a tin foil hat that can be accommodated for on national television, otherwise the weight of the right wing conspiracy theories would cut out the television signals.

LMAO good on ABC....they woke up when it comes to this All-Hat-And-No-Cattle Herr Perry. And yes....he IS a certifiable nut case but Abbott is even worse. I think they are smoking some really bad weed tainted with paraquat or something because he (they) just keeps going deeper into the conspiracy rabbit-hole.

As Rick Perry's preferred way of dealing with problems is apparently to pray them away, although his success rate leaves a lot to be desired. It does make people think Rick Perry is nothing if not a persistent brand of wingnut and not just a complete idiot despite ample proof all we have to remember the Republican primaries between 2011 – 2012, with the rogue’s gallery of right wing ideologues prowling the political scene, it was Rick Perry who stood out an impressive achievement considering the other candidates as particularly inept, nasty and unintentionally hilarious. But then what do you expect from a man whose political career is a catalog of contradictions, bigotry and ineptitude. The just got tired of his voice like many people in Texas.

Noted. Thx, Carrie. What a paranoid dweeb! Glad Martha cut him off...that kind of rant is SOP for Faux News, but not ABC. (yet)

Terrie, and Louise: so well said; "paranoid dweeb!" I both love it,and feel sorry for so many in Texas, who have had to put up with this fool, after getting rid of G.W. Kicking someone upstairs is not always a good idea, though (LOL).

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) has already been rejected by a majority of the people
(voters) of USA as a Presidential candidate in 2012. He plans to run again for the 2016 nominations. Let him run and waste his money. Perry's bad record speaks for itself + the fact that he is, using his favorite word, "inept". lol.

Worst Governors:

Rick Perry: They say don’t mess with Texas, but Gov. Perry’s record is a mess.

Gov. Perry has appointed hundreds of campaign donors to state posts and, in turn, raised millions of dollars in campaign funds from his appointees and their spouses. Gov. Perry has used multimillion-dollar state programs created to lure businesses and jobs to Texas as slush funds to reward his political allies and donors.

ty, carrie.

Governor Perry was telling the truth. Has Obama been to our borders to check out the situation? Uh, no...but he was in Texas fundraising. Hence......

President Obama was recently voted worst president in 70 years. :(

Diane O: Who are you the Texas Ambassador of Charm? Rick Perry couldn't hit his ass with both hands in a blizzard. How can you defend a brainless idiot who allows his state to be one of the most dangerous to live in? I am sick and tired of hearing Obama this and Obama that. When was the last time you drove your border with Mexico?

How can you defend a president who has been called the worst president in 70 years? Hey, I'm sick and tired of hearing about Obama, too. I get it. Governor Perry is exactly right so much so that now Obama wants to meet with him.

It is never good to suggest that people who comment on these threads ignore a difference in opinion. If you do not want people to disagree with your liberal comments you shouldn't be on a public forum. Comprende?

When, you are gullible enough to support Rick Perry, there is 'little' hope for your maturity.
He is lacking in common sense, which is the most pertinent.
He is lacking in political knowledge, and well as general knowledge.
His wordage lacks intelligence and he makes up things as he goes. Of course, most of these psychological issues run rampant with the Teapublicans.

Actually, when he graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Science in animal science, I question under what circumstances that was achieved.. Perhaps, he should have taken a few courses in human psychology and/or political science. Oh well, maybe, they would have been subjects in which he had no interest.

Can you imagine him as the President of the United States, and the laughing stock that the rest of the world, would make of us?

"Governor Perry was telling the truth"

Governor Perry doesn't know what the right wing congress is passing and ignoring, let alone, have a clue as to how Washington works, like you.

President Obama has asked Congress to move on Immigration a hundred times.

Do you have to see the moon to know what it looks like? You people are UNBELIEVABLE!!! You take the stupid fox bait and make total fools of yourselves!

"President Obama was recently voted worst president in 70 years"

That HAS to be the lie of the century. Every one that knows how government and it's obstruction works, knows the right are in full control of the agenda.

Ask americans and that poll is 41% think Obama is the worst and they were told that!

OMG Diane! You said you were learning. You aren't doing any such thing. You're running their con on us. Stop it!

BTW Diane. Obama is following the immigration law gwbush/mabus signed into law in 2008. Your people are lying to you at every corner.

This just in! Bebghazi was neither an embassy nor a consulate…Why? because it was a CIA op that the right outed in a fit of pillow biting and they're to o stupid to back pedal.

Jason ,

Republicans in the House of Representatives have never met a corporate tax break they didn't like.

So far this year, they've passed $231 billion worth of them. None of them were paid for.

If they become law, that means we will add $231 billion to our country's debt for tax giveaways to corporations.

They're about to vote to renew yet another tax break for huge corporations. It will cost us another $290 billion over the next decade. Tell your Representative to vote no.

It's amazing how little the House has gotten done this year -- on everything except corporate tax breaks.

Texas governor Rick Perry who could not count to three in the 2012 Republican Presidential Debates has started wearing black framed glasses to give him a smarter more studious look. It is a prime example of artificial intelligence.
