People who really suck at their jobs normally take a hint and do something else. And then there’s Dick Morris:
One-time Clinton confidante-turned-conservative pundit Dick Morris has returned to Newsmax.com to pronounce that Texas Gov. Rick Perry could make a comeback in 2016. Sorry, Rick. That pretty much means it will never happen.Watch your back, Hillary!
How does this guy still get work? Seriously. WHO is dumb enough to pay him? Ohhh… the Fox News wannabes at Newsmax.
How can I get in on this racket? I've correctly predicted the past presidential races...so does that somehow disqualify me? I can pull things out of my a@@ and I’ll bet I’ll still have a better track record.
The site link lists dozens of dick’s predictions over the years. ALL OF THEM WRONG. Rudy didn't defeat Hillary in 2008. ACORN didn't cause Obama's downfall. Palin didn't save McCain. McCain didn’t win. For that matter, Newt Gingrich didn't win. Health care passed. And on and on and on.
Now, I agree Rick Perry was able to walk up the steps last week without falling down and sports his new "smart" glasses, but that is apparently all it takes to be the frontrunner in Dick's world. (To be fair, if you look at the pickings for 2016 as a rethug, that’s quite a bit more to go on than most.)
I recall not so long ago when Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio were going to be the 2016 saviors. How far have they fallen for us to look at Jeb Bush, Rick Perry, and Rick Santorum (who, after Dick Morris, has said the dumbest thing so far this week. He claims that Obama's people told him privately they were really afraid he would win. Really. Charlie Church ain’t afraid of lying, I guess).
It’s gonna be a long hot summer in 2016 for the GOP. Or completely awesome, if you believe Dick Morris.
