Governor Perry, A Match for Reagan or JFK Wit & Style?

This piece is a reply to a 31 August 2011 article in the Washington Post by Marc A. Thiessen entitled: “If Perry is ‘dumb,’ why is he such a smart campaigner?” Link: Prior to absorbing this post, I recommend perusing my introduction page for a proper preface of my mission.

Mr. Thiessen,

Your misguided adulation of Governor Perry reeks of “dumb” political partisanship. I sit tall in the saddle in rawhide resistance to President Obama and his dismantling of traditional American freedom and values; however, the slick, Islamic subversion facilitating Texas demagogue falls fall short of the privilege of riding shot-gun with Ronald Reagan, famous for clever and effective brevity in deflection of nefarious hired-gun questions such as that about his age by promising not to use Walter Mondale’s “youth and inexperience” against him.

By this score, Rick Perry, by resorting to typical counter-accusations, though true, against Obama’s condescending recent scolding concerning Perry’s choice of words, is merely proving himself to be just another glib campaigner ready on the quick-draw for aggressive retort and inflation of his own alleged achievements, not brilliance of rapier-like disarming whit in league with the masters such as Ronald Reagan and my “far-from-perfect” hero, John F. Kennedy.
