Skip to comments.Perry tests his Texas twang in key states (Here comes the Lame Stream Media mockery)
Posted on 08/14/2011 6:43:36 AM PDT by tobyhill
Rick Perry, who entered the 2012 GOP race Saturday, greeted his first crowd of voters here with two words rarely heard in these parts: with a wave, he let out a boisterous Hi, yall to a crowd clad in khakis and button ups gathered around a backyard pool.
There was also this: Yall holler outta question to open up a question and answer session.
And this when it got going: Theres hands going up everywhere, somebody just get after it.
There were times when the three-term Texas governor sounded eerily like the Saturday Night Live version of George W. Bush, droppin every g and proclaiming awesome at nothing in particular.
His appearance raised the question that is at the center of his candidacy: Can Perry take his Texas twang on the road and meet voters where they live, in cities and suburbs and swing states?

Like it or not, that slow West Texan drawl sounds to an Easterner, at least, like someone of lower than average IQ speaking. That’s part of why the media succeeded with the “W is stupid” meme—because that’s what he sounds like to someone used to a faster pace of speech. Perry further reinforces it with a lot of nonstandard English.
Now, W had Harvard and Yale degrees and his Eastern Establishment family pedigree, so GOP voters were able to overlook that. The question is whether someone without those, yes, ‘elite’ markers can come along after W and get people to hear him through his manner of speaking.
When I first became aware of Perry (earlier this year) I was thinking he could beat Obama. But the more I learn about him, the more uneasy I am. The Gardasil order concerns me. So does his stance on immigration.
“Numbers USA, a group that supports immigration control, gives Perry a D- for his positions supporting amnesty, open borders, and opposing border security.”
But he would be better than Obama.
Faux black accent-
Obama commemorates 1965 civil rights march in Selma, AL
“a whistling noise”
WTF is that? When I first heard Soetoro speak and hear that whistling noise, I thought “Is it possible this guy has ill-fitting dentures?” Seriously, that was my first reaction.
Maybe it’s an “Austian” accent...
I’d rather hear Yoko Ono “sing” for an hour than Soetoro speak for 5 minutes.
Agreed. He sounds normal to me too. We don’t have accents here! The Soros/Obama machine has had months to to put together their smear file on Perry. They attack the man’s accent rather than come at him on the issues. That tells me something. This is only the beginning, they had plenty of practice with Palin and they have honed their skills.
Oh, he can take it. He once told a reporter “Adios, MOFO” and they tried to slam him with it but he just slammed harder.
The MSM is actually scared of Perry.
Why do you even have a Governor then, appearances?
So who do you think is better who is electable? We don’t need to give the opposition any help thank you. If Perry is the candidate I am going to vote for him. I am going to cast a vote against Obama and make it count. I am not going to stamp my foot and waste my vote on a write-in candidate .
Soros was driving the car? Soros was given a warning ticket? Soros got out of the passenger seat? Soros got snotty with the officer? Soros was seate at the table and had to explain his actions? Wow, Soros is aging well and is taller than what I thought. Nice head of hair that Soros dude has. Can’t put my finger on it but he looks a lot like a guy I know in Austin. They say everyone has a double. Yep, that must be it.
Damn the DU plants from years ago are coming out of the wordwork...
The GOP could run Charles Manson and I would vote for that over Obama.
Odd that a so called “concerned conservatives “ now post a Soros Media “YOUTUBE: that has been found to be a FAKE !
But this CRAP has been posted by the Axlerod Obots everywhere on the radical left websites.
I missed who you are supporting ?
Did you post that yet ???
I know Texas has had it's fair share. Which has the most?
Hell, I’d gladly take GWB over O and I didn’t even like Bush.
I only hope Perry’s team knows the American public has about a two-week memory at best. Bring back the stimulus (video of protests and all). Bring back the budgets that out-of-control Congress passed when the were the only game in town. Bring back Healthcare that we begged them not to do and show their arrogance. Even O saying police acted “stupidly”.
It’s a fact that a large chunk of the electorate pushes these unpleasantries right out of their little minds as soon as it happens.
They should actually mock Ricardo using a Mexican accent...
Counter to that is what our talkers (Rush and Levin especially) do so well. Line up the sound bites of
Biden (remember him?)
and play them over and over.
