Texas Gov Rick Perry mistakes Lebanon for Libya, then says liberals don't know much

The Faith and Freedom Coalition Conference went as swimmingly as Gun Appreciation Day. While trying to demonize President Obama for what occurred in Benghazi Texas Gov. Rick Perry said,  “I fear where we’ve come to in America, where our administration won’t make one phone call to save our men and women in a embassy in Lebanon.”

Yeah Obummer, why didn’t you make a phone call after the attack in Lebanon that didn’t happen?!

Perry

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ironically, Perry said during the closing of his speech, “Smile when you disagree with a liberal. Shake your head as Ronald Reagan once said, he said you know, liberals know so much that isn’t so.”

Yes, yes we’re so stupid. Oh lookie, a map!

    Stupid is as stupid does….and this moron does stupid better than anyone. Pray for Guidance Ricky. Then watch out for falling rocks.

  • Betty Caron

    I don’t think most of these people even know where Benghazi is, so it doesn’t matter.

  • gailillly

    It must be something about being the governor of Texas that makes them so god dam stupid. GW bush was no better and now this clown. When he was running for president, he couldn’t remember what he was talking about and now he don’t know the difference between Libya and Lebanon. Oh what losers.

    Rick Perry during a Presidential debate in 2011 was going to change 5 things in the government and couldnt remember but 4 of them- Now he confuses Libya with Lebanon- I am beginning to think that Rick Perry is starting to get alzhiemers or dementia- he sure cant remember much LOL

    • AttilatheBlond

      Recreational Alzheimers, maybe.

    • agr8wrld

      You’re giving him too much credit. He couldn’t remember the THIRD federal agency he would eliminate. If it had been five, he probably couldn’t remember three of those either. rofl

        LOL

  • https://www.facebook.com/rob.canny robcanny

    Governor, it’s “an embassy” not “a embassy” you twunt.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=643286546 Helen Hevener

    That would have sure helped Libya out if President Obama had placed a call and told them to beef up security in Lebanon- LOL Oh well Rick Perry is good for a laugh anyway- but he is not someone I would want making decision at 3 AM on how to protect our Country!!! President Obama may have been a little late calling- but Rick Perry would have been calling the wrong Country- I can imagine how stupid our Country would look if Rick Perry was President!!!

    • Sally

      Our country looks pretty stupid having this guy as Governor of one of the largest states, and then letting the moron run for President.

  • lobo214

    Maybe he was thinking of the United States embassy suicide bombing in Beirut, Lebanon, on April 18, 1983, during the presidency of Ronald Reagan, and trying to blame it on President Obama too.
    The attack killed 63 people, mostly embassy and CIA staff members, several soldiers and one Marine. 17 of the dead were Americans.
    It was the deadliest attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission up
    to that time, and is thought of as marking the beginning of anti-U.S.
    attacks by Islamist groups.

    • lobo214

      I wonder what Slick pRick Perry would have to say about the eleven attacks on U.S. embassies and consulates, with 52 deaths during the eight years of the Bush administration.

      • Sally

        Nothing at all. It’s as if nothing bad happened with Georgie was in charge, let alone when Reagan was selling arms to Iran, and letting people die in embassies. The revisionist history courtesy of the GOP.

    • melloe

      Actually, that was over 200 died in the blast, and mostly Marines..otherwise good thought. … or are we talking two different blasts.. I know of only the one where the Marines protected the Christians, who turned around and killed Muslin women and children, and the Muslims responded by blowing up the Embassy ( and that was an Embassy < )

  • Dave Lanson

    It was so apparent during the ’12 GOP nomination campaign that Perry made GWB seem like a founding MENSA member. Like Molly Ivins once said (about Dan Quayle) “If you put his brain in a bee it would fly backwards.”

    • Roger Matherly

      God, I miss Molly.

  • DoubleDogDiogenes

    How about that Lebanon terrorist attack Mr Perry? Where were the endless hearings and witch hunts with Ronald Raygun at the helm? Oh yes… that wasn’t important was it? Raygun wasn’t black.

  • http://www.tumblr.com/blog/akinsc Carla

    They know about these events in advance right? Have a staff to research and write these speeches, type them up so he can read them? I can see him looking down, referencing his notes, can he not read?

    • Cosmic_Surfer

      Maybe his staff is that uneducated – they do work for Perry, right?

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=643286546 Helen Hevener

        And he couldnt look at the notes and recognize that it said Lebanon and not Libya- that is funny!!!! The republicans criticize President Obama for using a teleprompter- but then the republicans come up with stuff like this- looks like Rick Perry could have used a teleprompter- he wasnt doing very well at speaking!!!

      • http://www.tumblr.com/blog/akinsc Carla

        bet it’s for college credit. however it’s texas college credit.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=643286546 Helen Hevener

        Even Silly Sarah Palin uses her (hand pilot) writes stuff on her hand- and she still gets her information wrong LOL

    • lobo214

      Obviously he can’t read or think as fast as he can run his mouth.
      His staff members who research and write his speeches are obviously smarter than he is, but unfortunately, that doesn’ t say much.

  • Patricia Houghtalen

    This guy can probably claim without challenge the dumbest Governor ever award. And here in Florida we have the most fraudulent Governor ever award winner. What a pair Rick Perry and Rick Scott two of a kind both the worse thing to happen to either state.

    • Larry Beck

      I feel your pain….here in Texas.

    • nkiflemar

      Don’t forget Rick Snyder of MI – Mr. Right to Work and sell out Detroit! I get the honor of having Jan Brewer, Mrs. Boney finger and don’t forget the one and only Scott Walker and Creationist Bobby Jindal. Boy, what does it say about Americans, that we end up with all these boneheads as governors? Scary!

  • shivabeach

    Perry is the dumbest person next to Hannity and Doocy I have ever seen. Well that includes Palin followers, the tea party and anyone in the GOP.

    And this Ronald Reagan? He was the great traitor. A conservative in words only.

    Just MHO and you know how humble I am

  • ryan

    Dumber than bush.

  • AttilatheBlond

    Libya, Lebanon. Embassy, consulate. Not much for nuance, or even details, huh Rick?

    This clown thought he could be president? The bar has fallen this low? Idiocracy is not fiction. Evidently, it is just around the corner.

  • AttilatheBlond

    Or the crony system in Texas? Last thing all those Commissioners want would be a governor who can light up an EEG.

    • Susan Thornton

      True. The Texas Governor isn’t supposed to have power; they wrote the constitution of the state that way, so the actual bidness of the state is done by the Railroad Commission. About all a Governor can do is help or hurt education and the state’s reputation. Ann Richards was the last one to do both; Mark White helped education, too, but was too bland for national attention. But Shrub and Pretty Rick have both done serious damage to education and the state’s rep. But Texas will be blue in 2 election cycles, so hopefully, they’re the last of the inbred breed.

  • fairandbrave

    and rick perry is one of the smarter texans lol

    • Jimmy

      I am offended by that statement. Not all Texans are as stupid as Perry. Just the one that get elected to office.

      • Sally

        Right. So if the only stupid ones are the ones in office, just who voted for them? Smart Texans?

        • Susan Thornton

          A guy named Gerry Mander. Google “Killer Ds” or “Texas Redistricting + Tom DeLay.” You’ll find your answer there.

      • lobo214

        Fortunately not all Texans are as stupid as Slick pRick Perry; just most of the ones who get elected and the idiots who vote for them.

  • deosbo1

    oops! How many oops moments does one idiot get? Embarrassing smart Texans everywhere, you know the liberal kind.

  • Adam

    Sick Perry seems like a cartoon amalgamation of what the Texas GOP thinks its voters want to hear..”Insulted Liberals, check, Insulted Obama, check, Mentioned Ronnie Raygun, CHECK!

  • ecooper62

    Stupid is as stupid does…

  • agr8wrld

    This clown has been governor since 2000 and W was four years before that! Ann Richards was the last decent governor they had. I keep hoping they’ll wake up and realize this guy doesn’t do squat for the constituent. It’s all about the corporations.

  • http://www.byebyedemocracy.org/ KB723

    Says alot about the people who ‘Elected’ this Fool!!! =(

  • Susan Thornton

    Bless Pretty Rick’s heart; he’s doing the best a low-C average Aggie can do, like his predecessor. Gubnor Goodhair, or P.Rick, displays the effects of too much hairspray on a daily basis. Let this be a warning to the chirren!!

  • Dana Logsdon

    Too much Jesus. Too bad he doesn’t have a personal relationship with reality.

  • Sally

    Articles? I don’t think they teach grammar in Texas any more…it got dumped with critical thinking.
