Rick Perry and Marx's Sanest Statement

The saying goes, "History repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce." I realize quoting Karl Marx will be used against me by random conservatives. I support Obama. Being called a Marxist for it is unavoidable.

But that's also a digression. Rick Perry announced his candidacy for the GOP nomination for President of the United States today. Already dubbed the Texas governor you want if George W. Bush was too cerebral for you, he's yet another piece of evidence in favor of Marx's dictum.

In the 11 years he's spent what I will loosely call leading the former Republic of Texas, he's denied the evidence of human influence on global climate change, championed creationism as science, run the state's economy even deeper into the ground than Bush managed, and supported the idea of his state seceding from the Union again. Moreover, his college transcript reveals he was worse in school than GWB at a lesser university.

So we have GWB 2: The Farce running for President. Want to see the eight years under GW look like a walk in the park? Let the Tea Party and pseudo-left win the "Obama caves" war. Attack Obama on cosmetics like which order he says things  instead of engaging its content. The more you accept the idea he's weak, the weaker he looks.

And yes, you're wrong about his "weakness" and "inability to get anything done." VERY wrong. If you can read this list and still claim he's Bush III, you are far too addicted to refusing to think.
