Or as Silver Fiddle says it, Obama might be careful before biting into a hot pepper
The Left is Scared, Folks
As Papa Silverfiddle used to tell me, “They only try to tackle the guy with the ball.” Ken Blackwell’s dad had a similar saying, “A dog don’t chase a parked car.” The tea party scares the crap out of the statist left, and so does Rick Perry. He’s a hot jalapeño dropped into the plate of bland political pablum, and the left is already screaming at the offensive spiciness.
The Demagogic democrats have already framed the issue as a Texas Cowboy “threatening” the Fed Chief, and the lapdogs in the press have obediently adopted the trope. He did no such thing.
This is a threat…
…Delivered with one hand hovering over a holstered pistol, eyes narrowed down to slits:
“I’ll kick your ass and drag you behind my horse, Ben Cartwright style, if you print more of that neon toilet paper you call money.”
Perry didn’t say that, he said this:
“If this guy prints more money between now and the election, I don’t know what y’all will do to him in Iowa, but we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas,” Perry said to laughter from supporters in Iowa.
“Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treacherous, treasonous in my opinion,” he said. (Reuters)
Go read the whole thing, Fiddle lays out a great case for Perry, and I could not agree more. And, as an added bonus, I must include fiddle’s description of Karl Rove, who has an axe to grind with Perry.
Karl Rover, handmaiden of the establishment and the left’s newest go-to Republican,
BINGO!! Rove is one of the “pragmatic” Republicans, pragmatic meaning they are afraid of any Republican who sounds too much like a real Conservative!
