Rick Perry: Making George W. Bush seem sensible.
He’s worse than this chart implies.
Take #2, for example: He fought against having the new evidence considered, then refused to delay the execution.
Or take #5: Perry promotes religious leaders (remember his prayer rally a few weeks ago?) that don’t just teach that people should repent for being gay, but that people should repent for being tolerant of gays.
How about #9? He claimed to be responsible for Texas’s job growth, which was almost entirely due to government jobs made possible by the very stimulus funding he railed against.
