What better way to relax and prepare for the night's shitstorm?



Rick Perry Unwinds Before New Hampshire Debate At Texas Shooting Range


Ready, aim fire. That’s apparently Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s idea of relaxation before returning to the campaign trail this weekend.

Ahead of Saturday night’s ABC News-Yahoo-WMUR debate in New Hampshire Perry took a few moments to himself at an Austin-area shooting range.

“Just relaxing a bit @ Red’s Range before we leave for New Hampshire!” @governorperry tweeted Friday along with a photo of himself wearing a green sweatshirt and a baseball cap with a firearm in hand.

On the campaign trail, Perry, a staunch defender of second amendment rights, has not been shy about talking about his “long love affair” with guns.

“It was a long love affair with a boy and his gun that turned into a man and his gun, and it turned into a man and his son and his daughter and their guns,” Perry told reporters before a pheasant hunting trip with Iowa Rep. Steve King in October. “It’s, I think, one of the great American traditions is taking your family hunting.

Many of you don't like Perry but you've got to give credit where credit is due: when it comes to guns and the 2A, he walks the walk, bigtime.

PS: for the record, he's a pretty good governor of Texas. Not perfect, but he has my support over the others...

Godspeed, Governor.

You may well be our last best hope.

Absolutely. I trust him WRT RKBA issues.

I'm just worried America would still gonna go bankrupt under him (and perhaps it might under anyone).

You're right, stupid is as stupid does. Aides indicated that he was shooting blanks. Have a good morning!

I would like to have seen the target(s) he was shooting!

A pistol?

Beats the shit out of a round of golf.

Maybe if he wins he will have a indoor range installed in the WH. I won't hold my breath.

If I were POTUS I'd spend my free time at Mt. Weather here in Virginia.....They have a range and great views.

Hopefully he can turn his campaign around and gain some ground...

Um, you're from OHIO? And you know what of Perry's performance as the longest serving governor in Texas history? [crickets]

Although he's certainly not perfect, there's a reason he's been elected so many times: he's done a pretty good job. Texas has been rated the #1 business-friendly state in the nation for YEARS. Again, there's a reason for that.

Might want to consider some of this before posting Skippy.

It's one of the things that separates him from the other candidates to me. Unfortunately I think he has an uphill battle though. What I've always liked about him is that he seems the more normal of all of the candidates. I can't ever picture Mitt Romney or Newt Gingrich in a sweatshirt and ball cap at the range, unless it was a staged photo op.

completely and utterly unelectable because he lost a debate and tried to make a vaccine mandatory.

Well, after Cain dropped out, I am looking at supporting him again.

In my opinion, his problem is that he sounds like Gorge W. Bush speaking. I'm a W supporter...except for his shameful spending....and I know how intelligent W is. He was not a good orator. That's it and that's all.

Perry comes across the same way. I believe his poor speaking skills is what killed him in this race. If he can work on that, and it's a big IF, he may get some traction.

My $.02.

I offered no opinion on his politics. We have had several stories lately of people being struck with bullets fired into the air recently. Amish girl here in Ohio close to where I live for one. You may have read about it. THAT is all I was commenting on. Shooting into the air is stupid. People who do it are stupid. Stupid is as stupid does.

Agreed, if he's still around when the GA. Primaries roll around I may vote for him. Debate performance won't matter in the general because team Obama won't agree to anything remotely equal; this could play to Perry's advantage. No doubt in my mind Perry has the goods to contrast against Obama, sure there issues I don't agree with him on but I think he has the ability to make a positive difference.

Then I guess I have to take it back although....

A: I guess I missed NRA Gun Safety Rule #4 - "Unless there's blanks in it."

B: There are only three NRA gun safety rules. Of course Governor Perry can only remember two things at a time.

I hope he makes it. He seems to be the best candidate there is.

Perry is pretty good shot and a hell of a lot safer than any random number of GD'ers around firearms. I guarantee he inspected those blanks himself to make sure.

I've shot beside him on several occasions. He's a regular at Reds. Damn good with a pistol. His kid is no slouch with a rifle either.

I'd like to give you a big manly slap on the shoulder and share a beer with you. But I can not possibly agree that firing a blank into the air as part of a public political presentation is bad or irresponsible, in fact, I can only consider it absolutely awesome and frankly it seems to be a clear "in your face, Brady bunch" message.

I would vote for him in a heartbeat, the only knock on him is the tuition for illegals thing,(fed gov wont do anything with 'em so might as well try to educate those that want it so they're successful!) either way he's a hell of a lot better than the crackpot or the commie!
Link Posted: 1/7/2012 7:42:00 AM EDT
I'm really not sure why Rick Perry felt the need to go to a gun range. He shot himself in the foot plenty of times during all the campaign debates.

While I rag on him, I agree. Sadly, his debate abilities are rough, and in front of Obama, he'd be beat down.

Whomever challenges Obama will have hard questions to answer courtesy of the left wing media, and Obummer will get the softball ones. He'll be starting at a serious disadvantage, sadly enough.

Perry/Cain 2012!
