This morning, in Newton , Iowa, a woman asked Perry if he had ever supported the bank bailout know as TARP:
Ricky P....." No, ma'am "
Woman......." I thought I saw a letter where you had written encouraging the support of TARP legislation " , she persisted.
Ricky P....." You saw wrong ."
Politico , of course, has the original letter, dated October 1, 2008, signed by Perry as RGA Chairman and cosigned with DGA Chairman , Joe Manchin
" Dear Majority Leader Reid,
As leaders of our respective organizations, we don't always see eye to eye on policy, but we come together today with one clear purpose. We strongly urge Congress to leave partisanship at the door and pass the economic recovery package...."
So, of course, Perry is lying again. But he will ask for a pass, because what he really meant to say was............( fill in the blank ). And he says, on camera, that the woman is mistaken.
Maybe he really isn't lying. maybe he is just slow. maybe he doesn't remember. After all, in Texas they destroy evidence within a week. maybe that's what he did at the RGA.
Anyway, this is on Politico and on You Tube
