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....
"My son lost his job because of this administration," she said a few minutes later.
You see, there is this regulation that has been on the books for some time that prevents financial backers from undue influence on a political campaign.
That's a good thing.
But this mama's boy CHOSE to leave his job at Deutche bank to take ANOTHER job working for his dad to help his sagging campaign... a new job that I might add is certain to pay him handsomely.
And the ditz says this qualifies her to sympathize with people who CANNOT get a job and are really suffering.
Seriously. The Perry family, part of that top 1% you've been hearing about, are doing the typical GOP thing and playing the victims.
This idiot kid has been living off his father's name for quite some time. At the ripe old age of 23, Griffin Perry secured a sweet job at UBS. The fact that the investment banking firm stood to make hundreds of millions through a lottery proposal the governor was pushing I'm sure had nothing to do with that. Nor the fact that UBS is where former U.S. Sen. Phil Gramm, whose political action committee once gave the governor $610,000, works as a vice chairman.
Somehow, I don't think Griffin is going to wind up at McDonald's or any of the Mcjobs Rick Perry is famous for creating after his dad's campaign finishes going down in flames.
So to sum up... if you are out of work and liberal, it's your OWN DAMN FAULT. If you are "out of work" and conservative... it's OBAMA.
I wonder who Anita will blame when her equally moronic husband loses?
