Perry Responds to ‘Dumb’ Charge
Between events in Fort Worth and Dallas Tuesday, Texas Gov. Rick Perry called in to conservative pundit Sean Hannity’s radio show, and the host brought up a controversial story published by the online publication Politico this week with the headline “Is Rick Perry Dumb?”
“What’s dumb is to oversee an economy that has lost that many millions of jobs … to downgrade the credit of this country … to put fiscal policies in place that were a disaster back in the ’30s and try them again in 2000s,” Perry said.
Hannity quickly warned that the thought listeners will take away from the interview could be: “Perry calls Obama policies ’dumb.’”
