Why Are Harlan Crow, Charles Moncrief Bailing on Rick Perry? Well, It's The Talkin', Mostly.

There's a piece in this morning's Wall Street Journal in which Unfair Park's cross-the-street neighbor Harlan Crow and Fort Worth oil man Charles Moncrief explain why they're throwing their money at Mitt Romney after years spent filling Rick Perry's coffers. Long story short: It's that openin'-his-mouth thing he does. It's killing him. "Perry's done this to himself," Moncrief says. "He's really hurt himself." Exhibit No. 438,822: Last night's Tonight Show appearance, in which, as the morning Musers pointed out, Rick Perry plays the part of David Wooderson. It's on the other side, all right all right all right.

It is an Interesting marketing scheme.  The Repukes had to scrape down and come up with the likes of Perry and Cain to make Gingrich look goo

How come when Perry runs for governor, no one gets upset about his lack of usable skill sets?  We let him get away with nary a debate or a public appearance that wasn't in front of his strong supporters when he ran for governor last time. Why?

 His poor showing didn't just happen, this has always been his way of doing critical thinking.  Has anyone anyone on the left or right stood up and told the truth about him.  People who have voted for him  and the Collin County elected officials who worked in Austin ought to be ashamed that they didn't know how inadequate he was or if they did, didn't bother to tell us.  Florence are you listening?  I'm glad you aren't running because I wouldn't vote for you again.

Can he possibly make Texas look any worse?  OMG, he probably can.  *Sigh.*

How much longer is his term?

'I was thinking of the drinking age'.....speaking of, is he drunk? He seems to slur A LOT.

'People hate hypocrites.' Which is why the majority of Texas hates you, Governor.

Sadly, that isn't true (or wasn't last year).

There are a whole bunch of rednecks and idiots in this state who still fall for yokel dumbassery such as his.

I moved to Dallas in 1996, and I have never had a governor that wasn't a complete moron.  It is embarrassing.

Well, he would know, seeing how he's been part-timing the Governor position for years.

What do you really expect from an Aggie cheerleader?  Ability to hold a conversation? Converse about world events? Count to three?

Throw us a new post on the Sporty, Mr. Roberto...it's a whole ding dang new month..hasn't been a post since Turkey month.

Since then, the following has happened: NBA lockout unlocked, traded yet another Redshoe to the Buck Showalter's, Ag fired their head coach, 6 months after giving him a four year extension, U of T gagged em one last time for good measure..Young Mister McCoy had a legendary drive/run with time running out to steal the W from the Ag.  Tomorrow signals Heisman hopeful RGIII vs the mean ol Horn's defense tomorrow, in the rain..in Waco..

C'mon Bob, plenty of good stuff..throw us a bone.

If part-time politicians are better than full-time politicians, why has Rick been a full-time politician for more than 20 years?

If term limits are better than limitless terms, why has Rick Perry continued to run for the same office over and over?

Can Rick Perry identify hypocrisy when he sees it?  Or does he not own a mirror?

I'm not sure that this has ever happened before.  Someone appeared on Leno's show and was LESS likable than Leno himself.  Groundbreaking stuff...

Does that mean Goodhair finally found something he's good at?

If he hasn't figured out by now that he makes other people look better by comparison, he's got even less going on upstairs than previously thought.

There should be a way to sue this man for defamation of our State.

They say "Come and Take it."

Because the man is a bad ass.

A lot of people would have no clue what that even means.

I used to detest the man.  Now I just pity him. 

I love the part about telling politicians to get a 'real job' ... this from the man that hasn't held a non-political job in at least 24 years.

I feel no pity, this idiot is our terrible Governor, we are the ones really suffering in all this.
