Questioning the intelligence of a leading Republican presidential candidate and governor of Texas.
Texas governor Rick Perry being criticized by enemies apparently reportedly on both sides of the aisle including some leading Republicans.
Portrayed as a quote right place right time politician who looks the part but isn't so deep.
One former Republican governor quoted by Politico is saying he's quote like bush.
Without the brains.
-- Michelle Malkin is a conservative columnist and Fox News contributor and my guess -- Michelle.
There's this big piece in the Politico.
Today that talks about and that it's titled is Rick Perry -- Saying that the whispers of the same as with the George W.
Bush -- -- curious intellectual.
Governor good hair -- somebody is calling him that and then using that quote from an unnamed former Republican governor he's like bush.
Only without the brains and what do you man.
Well my eyes are rolling so high up there I think they're gonna get stuck in this is just one of those standard issue -- paste.
Attacks on Republicans that you get in late August or every time -- election season rolls around.
We've seen it with a break in and George W -- Sarah Palin Michelle Bachmann and now it sits Rick -- turn -- obviously he's the front runner I think.
-- more pertinent question and of course you're not gonna get this from the elites on the left cited the violins compared to walk to.
I mean we've got plenty of minute did I -- legal scholars in the Obama administration.
Particularly among their economic advisors who make up what I call an ivy league of economic doom.
And even the creme -- -- -- from Princeton in Berkeley in the University of Chicago and for all their smarts.
Brought in this country into the ground and so which would you prefer I really don't care where Rick Perry went to school.
And I think it's more telling that there's a huge.
Amount of double standards with regard to the liberal media is curiosity about the college transcripts of Republicans verses.
-- Democrats like the one.
In the White House -- it now it -- Imagine the transcript because Arianna Huffington Post had that a report earlier this month that said that its source in Texas head.
Perry's transcripts from his years at Texas -- and two of them having to us and and and recited that He got mostly c.'s history -- C Shakespeare.
DJM a C.
Veterinary anatomy at the organic -- -- happening got two ways world military systems and in -- Of learning He got it so now we know that He wasn't very good student at Texas say -- and what does this tell us which.
I think it tells us more about the double standards of the media than anything else we certainly haven't gotten.
After four or five years of a -- gaffes a -- Any kind of is Obama dumb.
From the Politico.
I mean this is a man who cannot pronounce corpsman correctly.
Who travels incessantly with his.
Teleprompter earnings but who said that there were 57 states who couldn't remember what year was just a couple of months ago when He was -- England.
It goes on and on and on my friend Ed Morrissey at hot -- been.
Chronicling these Obama isms for years now and you don't get these kind of compilations.
From the liberal media.
I'm open this solid distraction and I think there is a much more important question particularly to grassroots conservatives and the question is not whether Rick Perry is -- The guy's got plenty of political savvy to have gotten elected for as many years as He did.
Given these serious doubts that grassroots conservatives and libertarians have about whether he's the real deal.
And that is the question that we should be asking never mind what Politico with.
She weighing in and that chin stroking about today or tomorrow or the next -- -- the English Rick Perry the real deal.
And I know you've got some issues with him that you you -- on your on your block.
But I want to ask you this.
Does it matter should it matter.
If somebody's done because you know we had yes there have been partisan attacks no question and it -- usually seem to focus on the Republicans as Michelle Bachmann dominate talked about -- It -- her being on the House Intelligence Committee is a contradiction in terms.
And they they go base anonymously sourced Republicans asking that question.
Another asking -- about Rick Perry was solid Sarah Palin but.
Is it unfair just because it's coming from you know some in the mainstream media I mean there there were questions about the number of colleges.
Sarah Palin you know attended there were questions about you know.
-- academic transcript and so on it does it make it illegitimate just because of who's asking.
Well I think that it does in a way because it it it it brings within a set of assumptions that are incorrect -- I believe when we're evaluating.
I think that there is an elitist bigotry.
About the Republican Party they're always has been for decades and decades.
And we can't allow the left side of the dial and those who oppose as -- neutral journalists to frame.
The quality and the credentials.
Cover candidates I don't -- -- on their college transcripts I don't measure it on how much they may have paid.
To go to some Ivy League meant to school and again you -- -- that the that the double standards because you have the smartest Ivy League professors around including the the -- constitutional law professor -- singing -- at 16100 Pennsylvania Avenue right now but it doesn't mean anything if they don't have principles that they don't have a commitment to.
The constitution that they teach and war.
To their liberal students and if they don't have a sense of integrity.
And bedrock principles and I think that for grassroots conservatives -- -- judging these GOP primary key candidates it's far more important.
-- what grades they got -- war.
Or whether some -- Washington journalists think they're smart enough you know this is the funny thing about.
Journalism and who who qualifies as smart as Republicans the only Republican that these liberal media people think are smart are the ones who are trashing.
And getting their pictures taken in Vogue Magazine by Annie Leibowitz.
Michelle it -- -- listening to you think you're.
You bet -- -- baggage on the.
