All the insane talk coming from the Limbaugh National Convention is spreading into the fabric of the entire GOP. Listen to Texas Gov. Rick Perry say:And this is a Governor. The highest elected state official hinting at secession if the duly elected federal government doesn't do he wants.
Perry: Texas is a unique place. When we came into the Union in 1845, one of the issues was that we would be able to leave if we decided to do that.
We got a great Union. There's absolutely no reason to dissolve it, but if Washington continues to thumb their nose at the American people, you know, who knows what may come out of that.
These republicans are talking treason in my mind. As soon as a Democratic president is inaugurated after conservatives led the charge and collapsed our economy, these freak show conservatives are now talking succession. OH, Lord---help us all.
Obama is not a legitimate President to these idiots. They will never accept him as their President. We have the Governor of a state talking publicly about dissolving the United States of America because Obama is President. They only tried to impeach Clinton. Obama's apparently driving these people so insane that we're talking about, what here? A Second Civil War? Honestly?
Doesn't Perry's public statements more or less count as sedition?
My lord. Republicans are *insane*. The thought of an African-American President is leading their possible Presidential hopefuls to openly speak of seceding from the Union. Bush's war crimes, plenary executive power, and near fascism elicited precisely nothing from this man. Three months of a black man in the White House and Texas should consider leaving the United States of America.
That is how much these people hate Obama. It is an irrational, mass delusion affecting millions of people. We live in dark, dark times.
Will anyone in Texas call for Perry's resignation? Will they even bother to call for him to retract, or even clarify his statement today?
Or should Perry put his state where his mouth is?
