Skip to comments.Richard Cohen Calls Perry "Intellectually Unqualified" To Be President

Washington Post opinion columnist Richard Cohen wrote Monday, "The Republican Texas governor clings to an ice floe of diminishing credibility, emerging in just about a weeks time as intellectually unqualified to be president." He concludes his column with another similar statement, "Its not his thinking I fear. Its the lack of any at all."
Cohen's claim about being "intellectually unqualified" to be President would more appropriate for the current President than the candidate from Texas. It is this President who has presided over the largest decline in the workforce. (Regardless of fault, Obama's policies have done nothing to prevent the decline.) It is this President who has proposed plan after plan to fix the economy, and seen each and every plan fail. It is this President who submitted a budget to the Senate that not only failed to receive approval of a single Republican, but also failed to win approval of a single Democrat. It is this President who announces that he is cutting regulation of business while simultaneously signing bills including two of the biggest increases in business regulation. (Dodd-Frank Financial Reform and Affordable Care Act) Perhaps before examining the intellectual capabilities of Presidential candidates, Cohen should examine whether the current President is any better qualified intellectually.
If I’m not mistaken, this amounts to the constitutionally forbidden “religious test”.
You know, the one the leftists howl about if anybody says they won’t vote for a pro-abortion candidate.
The more the Dickie Cohens of the press corpse rag on Perry, the more his stock goes up in by book. The more the establishment weasels get wee-wee’d up the better.
Two words to Richard Cohen:
Elistist, Leftist snob Richard Cohen said that about Rick Perry??
Shoots Perry to the top of a lot of people’s list...
And the guy we have now is a veritable intellectual giant, huh Dick?
Oops...elitist not elistist.
Let’s see if I remember this game correctly...
Carter? Highly intelligent.
Reagan? Stupid actor.
Bush I? Dumb.
Clinton? Highly intelligent Rhodes Scholar.
Bush II? Moron.
Obama? Most intelligentest of all!
Palin? Perry? Bachmann? Any conservative? Brainless.
Heard it all before... and it’s the same old tune...
I don’t even know who Richard Cohen is (or care). Should I?
R E A L L Y????
After “O”, I think the guy who empties the wastebasket here is ‘qualified’!
And the Obamacretin has more intellect?
Perry’s college grades were better than Obama’s. Prove me wrong, Dickie.
Has anyone read a Cohen article? This guy needs a mirror.
Tedious meme...our guys are always stupid, theirs are Nobel
It’s time for a new playbook from them. Let’s compare college
Repeal Executive Order Sealing Obamas Records
Does Richard Cohen know what the intellectual qualifications for any political office are? A more meaningful standard would be the intellectual qualifications for voting.
