Gov. Rick Perry tells MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ that arrogance derailed his 2012 presidential run

“Life is good.”

So said Gov. Rick Perry this morning at the outset of his interview with Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, otherwise known as the show people watch in clips posted to the Internet. Perry wouldn’t talk about his indictment, nor would he say whether he’s running for president: “I’ll make a decision next year,” he said. So no holding your breath until Christmas.

“I think America needs a competent leader,” he said. ” We’ll sort out who that’s going to be …”

-snip-

Maybe the highlight comes early in the chat, when Perry dissects his previous presidential run and the moment the wheels shot off. Said Perry, he just didn’t prepare last time, simple as that. He wasn’t prepared for all three phases: domestic policy, monetary policy, foreign policy. The reason, said the governor: “I was a bit arrogrant. I’d been elected governor three times.” And that should have been good enough. But … it was not.

1. I hate to break it to him but it wasn't arrogance, it was that he's really not very bright and it

showed. Also that he comes across and slimy and a snake oil salesman.

5. “I think America needs a competent leader.” Who says he's dumb?

Seriously, when I see a successful politician this f***ing stupid all I can wonder is who's behind him pulling the strings? Or does Texas just run itself?

9. Arrogance. Right.

As in, "more arrogant than a bag of hammer handles?"

The man puts the "e" in "stupid."
