Skip to comments.Perry fires back at Hoyer over Tea Party remark
Posted on 11/16/2011 12:20:47 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife
Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry took a shot at Rep. Steny Hoyer on Tuesday, arguing that the Maryland Democrat is part of a culture in Washington that is making a great living up there at our expense.
In a speech in Iowa, the Texas governor outlined a plan to slash government spending in part by reducing salaries for lawmakers. Asked about the proposal earlier in the day, Hoyer suggested that Perry was pandering to the Tea Party.
When people like Steny Hoyer come out there and go, 'Is this guy being serious?' Yeah, you better believe it Steny. Americans are serious. They're serious about the spending that's going on, Perry said on a conservative radio show. It's not a surprise to me when I laid out this fundamental reform that career politicians like Steny Hoyer don't like my plan to overhaul Washington. They're making a great living up there.
Earlier in the day, when asked about Perrys plan to halve lawmakers salaries, Hoyer gibed the candidate for a recent debate performance in which he could not remember the third federal agency he wants to eliminate.
Rick Perry? I have heard that name, yes. Oh, he is the one that has three -- yes, I can't remember what they are.
Hoyer then dismissed Perrys government-reduction idea.

LOL - yeah, that's what they do.
But I hear they're getting tired of you hanging around uininvited. They say your kazoo-playing is woefully off-key and for the thousandth time, they don't want to watch the Brady Bunch re-runs with you and they think your bad poetry about sheep, accompanied by your off-rhythm bongo drum banging is excruciating.
Somebody had to tell you. You'll get over it eventually.
You and I know that, but some, well... you know.
but, But, BUT... Perry’s the cream of the crop!!!!
Yeah-——in his own mind.
What about Steny Hoyer’s wife? Oh wait—
” What is your proof that Merck and Governor Perry were involved in a quid pro quo? “
I don’t even give a rats azz about Merck.....his record on illegal immigrants is enough to boil the SOB in oil !
“” but, But, BUT... Perrys the cream of the crop!!!!””
I don’t like creamed veggies : )
.......You mean Perry got creamed......
Everytime Perry opens his mouth, the voters say no.
One recent poll says Perry's the least likely candidate voters would trust with nukes.
Perry's ill-conceived million-dollar ad buys on Fox should have him hightailin' it back to cattle country.
Perry's exit strategy? Anita will get a rare disease that can be cured only with a Merck vaccine.....LOL
