Is Anita Perry Serious With This Remark?


Sometimes it is best to not say anything at all.

At a time when millions of Americans are unemployed through no fault of their own, and forced to work a couple of jobs to make ends meet, comes the ass-backwards comments of Anita Perry.

This is Saturday Night Live material!

Anita Perry said today that she could sympathize with  unemployed people because her son Griffin had to resign his job at a  bank in order to campaign for his father, Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

Mrs. Perry’s words came in response to David Von Schmittou, 45, who said  he had lost a high-paying job during the recession and now worked odd  jobs as a handyman to make ends meet.

“I’m just sympathizing. Let me tell you. Our son has resigned his job  because of the federal regulations Washington has put on us,” she said. “He resigned his job two weeks ago. Because he can’t go out and campaign  for his father because of SEC regulations. He’s got a wife; he’s got a  job. He’s trying to start up a business. So I empathize with you.”

This isn’t the first time Griffin Perry’s employment at a financial firm has come under scrutiny.

In 2007, he was hired by UBS, one of two firms who were at the time  consulting Perry’s office over the possible sale of the Texas  lottery. At the time, Griffin was hired to work in the bank’s Dallas  office, UBS and Morgan Stanley were both providing advice to the  governor’s office, but neither had been hired to broker the sale,  according to an AP report at the time

  1. Nobody forced sonny boy to quit his job and go out and campaign for dear old Dad. It was his choice. I think the operative word here is “resigned.” That’s a helluva lot different than losing a job because of the economic downturn.

    But really, what do you expect from a woman who wants to blame her husband’s plummeting poll numbers on him being attacked because he’s a Christian?
