Presidential hopeful Rick Perry isn't hanging out with the most desirable of people. In fact, he's in cahoots with some downright disgusting people. Could it be that he's wanting to represent the farthest right of ideals?
Rick Perry tweeted that he had spent the day with Glenn Beck, and even referred to the former Fox News pundit as a "great American." If this is the type of person Rick sees as a "great American," then he's certainly not out for the best interests of the more moderate and sane America. Glenn Beck is well-known for his outlandish conspiracy theories and seething hatred for anything liberal and progressive. In fact, he's been loud and aggressive to people who simply oppose his views. Is this really someone who a politician wants to associate with his or her career.
This isn't the first undesirable person Rick Perry has rubbed elbows with in the past few weeks. Orly Taitz, the queen of the birther movement, got some face time with him recently and bragged that he shared her points of view. This lady still adamantly believes that President Barack Obama isn't a US citizen and he should be imprisoned for Social Security fraud.
It doesn't really seem like any of the people hoping to run in 2012 have a chance against President Obama. People like Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry don't appear to be that serious in taking down the current administration. Both have made several serious mistakes in the past few weeks and it really doesn't appear than either of them are in polished enough shape to face off with Obama come 2012. Hanging out with people like Glenn Beck isn't helping either.
