    If it’s a book about what he’s done wrong, it will be the size of a Solzhenitsyn novel. If it’s about what he’s done right, it will be a PAMPHLET.

    1. Rod says:

      very true

  2. Land says:

    So all over the political blogs are quotes about Perry advocating violence toward the Fed. Where are these stories? Can we not get worthwhile news here at CBS?

    Rick Perry is 100% kook.

      You advocate violence against the fed?

    2. altha says:

    It is crazy for anyone who supports logic to post on this article. as it is to cause this reaction by a bunch of people who choose only to follow like sheep the feed bucket we now call a government. If you can talk poorly about Perry, Bush, Clinton, or any leader we’ve had with the exception of Carter and not fault Obama’s very poor performance (worse than all the others including Carter) then you are a bias liar who refuses to break from your socialistic view regardless of cost. I mention Carter as he hold the rear… That is one guy you wish would keep his mouth shut until you’re trapped in Iran… Then break the glass on his cage and send him on a peace mission… Then catch him and contain him again! haha…

    who would be dumb enough to buy a perry book of lies.I know.Those that want to give him money.Bright idea.Doesn’t look like a campaign contribution and they get to buy his influence.I’d bet if it could be found out that there are a few that bought hundreds if not thousands.
    On the book about perry side.That’s an easy target that I hope is learned by the rest of the country that think he’s so wonderful.That he is not,matter of fact he is a very bad man.period.This stated by an independent.Thank you.

  7. Dirty Harry says:

    He’s Texan and believes in God and guns….I’ll vote for him!

    1. NiteNurse says:

      That’s why the country believes we’re morons.
