What’s with the blame-Christianity-first crowd? Not only does Anita Perry, wife of rodeo clown Rick Perry, say people hate her husband because of his faith, but she says her son had to quit his job because of those pesky SEC regulations Obama personally shoved down the gilded throats of the financial industry. Apparently the 28 year old has no other skills and does not believe in the personal responsibility mantra of his own political party.
Anita Perry, the wife of Texas Gov. Rick Perry, said she sympathized with the unemployed Friday because her son resigned from his job at Deutsche Bank to campaign for his father, reports CNN.
“He resigned his job two weeks ago because he can’t go out and campaign with his father because of SEC regulations,” she said at a Pendleton, S.C. diner, in response to a middle-aged voter who lost his six-figure job and now works as a handyman. “My son lost his job because of this administration,” she added. CNN reports that the SEC recently adopted stricter rules for investment advisers undertaking political activity.
Anita Perry has been campaigning for her husband in South Carolina this week. She spoke Thursday about how opponents had “brutalized” the campaign. “We are being brutalized by our opponents, and our own party,” she said. “So much of that is, I think they look at him, because of his faith,” she added, possibly referring to questions in recent days over Rev. Robert Jeffress, who endorsed Perry and has called Mormonism “a cult.” She also compared his decision to run for president to Biblical stories of Moses and Gideon.
