Anita Perry blames Obama for son's job loss

Pendleton, South Carolina (CNN) – Rick Perry's wife Anita said Friday that she could sympathize with the plight of the unemployed because her son was forced to resign his job to take a more active role on his father's presidential campaign.

Anita Perry blamed the Obama administration for her son having to resign his position.

"My son had to resign his job because of federal regulations that Washington has put on us," Mrs. Perry said while campaigning for her husband in South Carolina, after a voter shared the story of losing his job.

    And yet, there's an article on CNN money today about how "regulations" are one of the LEAST common reasons employers have to let people go.

    Keep spewing your lies. History will look back at you for the shills that you are.

      @mah,

      I really enjoy your intelligent posts. Not only do they point out the lies of the GOP/Tea Pee Pants people but they're so ignorant they don't even understand the facts. Please keep up the good work. We need intelligence in these discussions. Listening and reading stupidity is extremely debilitating

        The CNN story states that less than 20% of small business owners cite government regulations as their most important problem. That may be true, however, democracy does not dictate truth. In other words only a few business think it is true does not mean it is not true for the majority. Some may not be aware of the government restrictions. Also consider the idea that all businesses could think it is important but not the most important.

        Talk about spewing lies, Trace has, many times, posted that the Iraq war cost $3 T. According to most estimates it is about $800 B. Still a large number. Trace, gone are the days that Liberals could just tell the masses what to think. Now days people can look up the figures for them self. I you want people to believe you you have to tell the truth.

        According to the Center for Defense Information, the estimated cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will reach $1.29 trillion by the end of fiscal year 2011. This does not add the cost of other conflicts, or the cost to economy in the form of medical care for the wounded, or the many unseen costs of war.

        Trace is not exactly wrong...in his estimate according to this 2008 book on the subject:

    Son was forced to quit his job and help his dad in the campaign because of government regulations?

    I can see how Anita Perry can empathize with the unemployed seeing that her son can now just take a job working for her husband's campaign – and make much more money doing so. It's like Sarah Palin who had to quit her job for the millions paid to her via Fox News and her PAC. Or better, like Romney saying he can empathize with the unemployed because he's not working now (yet still worth over a billion!)

    I wish I was forced to quit my job, get more money for doing so and then have the righteousness to say that I empathize with the unemployed.

    How can anyone expect that these 'job creators' can create jobs and still be clueless about those out of work?

    Sorry for the rant – I normally don't like to do so in these forums but this kind of comment gets me steamed...

    OK... now back to work.... 🙂

    I think she needs to comment on the name of the hunting camp N*****HEAD. I'm sure she'll explain that it is either GOD's will, or Obama snuck out there in the dark of night and painted it himself.

    And I'm sure her son is eminently qualified to help Perry's campaign. After all, with the father's IQ of 50 and that rocket scientist mom with IQ=45, he no doubt has IQ somewhere around 47.5. That would no doubt put him in the 99 percentile of those on the campaign staff.

    The Perrys are showing more and more they are not fit to serve as 1st family. What a bunch of whining losers. It might help if these so called True Conservatives stop spreading lies about the President. You mean your son couldn't find a job in a state your husband is bragging he created more jobs than any other state. Poor thing! Surely he could qualify for one of the 7 dollar an hour jobs I been hearing about.

      I think that Letterman and the other late night comedians should be worried about their jobs.These republican candidate are budding comedians.Second thought no need to worry guys these guys are jokers..will end up working in a circus.It is a good thing that they are all millionaires.Why are not charged for lying as often as they do.A governor was on today endorsing energy plan of one candidate when we know that the jobs he keeps talking about creating
      is false or misleading.These governors did so much good for their respective states..how come they allowed Bush to screw it up.Obama inherited this mess and the republicans will keep saying no to all of the president suggestions.They cannot even agree on one plan of another candidate...What a mess!!!

    Wow....I had to read this 3 times to make sure this was honestly as pathetically dumb as it looked on first glance. Perry Jr. QUITS (not loses) his job in order to work on Perry Sr.'s campaign (purely voluntary), and this is Obama's fault? The best part is she didn't even throw in some lame excuse like "Obama's policies have been so bad, my son was FORCED to take a role in trying to oust him", she just assumed everyone would follow the logic of "no job = Obama's fault" regardless of the circumstances. Gotta wonder how messed up their son must be, growing up with TWO nutjob parents.

    Kinda funny, actually. We've all seen political gaffes come from presidential candiates, their campaign assistants, their running mates, etc. but how many times do we see one from the candidate's WIFE?

      Jehosh27 on October 20, 2011 Well, the contest is over now, but I think The Last Samurai would be great. You start off with a gun, and know next to nontihg about swords. (how about the indian raid for the tutorial?) and as the game progresses, factions come into view, and you can side with whomever you want. Multiple, alternate endings, and even alternate fighting styles. Maybe Algren fights AGAINST the samurai at the end? it would be a very fun game, I think, especially if Bioware made it.

    Yea, the poor kid probably has to sign up for food stamps and eat at soup kitchens.
    It really amazes me when those with money try and sound like a middle class, paycheck to paycheck, slob. Does this kid even have to work to make the mortgage payment? Is he in danger of having his Lexus/BMW/Mercedes repossessed?

    Then I really like the "Obama just wants to blame Bush for his problems" folks who then blame Obama for all the current problems. Funny how politics and cherry picked facts go together so well.
    The economy tanked at the very end of Bush's second term. The crash is directly linked to all the deregulation at the beginning of Bush's 1st term. Bush did TARP which was drawn up while Obama was campaigning. Hank Paulson was placing ATM's in the living rooms of the biggest investment banks CEO's.
    While the economy is still in a tailspin, the GOP is tackling issues like the debt ceiling, an issue that most 1st semester economic majors know is not the issue, making sure we have the freedom to choose what kind of light bulb we can have, and keeping gays from marrying, and saying NO to anything Obama says no matter if it's right or wrong.
    The Democrats are spinning around and doing nothing at all.
    While Obama has not lived up to the hype, he was handed an economy as a huge crap sandwich laced with even more crap then left out to rot while being crapped on some more. No President handed that mess would have done any better.

    Both sides are acting like idiots. It's too bad that the loudest voters are the Tea Party and a bunch of folks who want it to be 1968 again. Maybe those of us who know that compromise is built in to our system will be heard at some point.

    Why does he need a job? Gov Perry has a Tech Fund he freely uses. Go ask daddy for a A loan! You live in a 10.0000 sq ft. mansion paid by tax payers., what more do you need?

    Irony, one that complains of job loss where his own party had endorsed massive job loss to benefit the rich. Really a stretch even for a Texan. No sympathy or agreement to this crock of Texas Horse $#@&!
