Perry: ‘…This is what I’m supposed to be doing…’

By |August 11th, 2011|

Mark Halperin has a very odd interview (including video) with Texas Gov. Rick Perry that doesn't focus on one single issue. It's all touchy, feely, are you okay with the Bushes insider nonsense, which doesn't speak to Perry's politics and his outlandish religiosity.
