I believe former Governor Perry will make a good SoE, he made some mistakes as governor, as is human. We, the people must stay alert and vigilant and make our wishes known. The left has declared war on the right, we cannot allow their constant criticisms of all appointed to sway us. The lies continue and will not stop, so get your information from good sources and stay strong. Too much is at stake to be complacent.

Many people seem to think that before one can handle one of these offices they have had to be doing the job for 30 years before they assumed the office! Capable people figure out how to do the jobs assigned to them. He did a good job as governor. He will also hit the ground running and do a good job as SOE.
If Rick Perry had been nominated for SECRETARY OF STATE and Rex Tillerson had been nominated had been nominated for ENERGY SECRETARY, both Trump and America would be better off, since both of them are MORE QUALIFIED for these jobs than the ones they’ve been proposed for….

Rick Perry is a good man. I saw him speak last August, 2015 at an Americans for Prosperity summit in Columbus, OH.

I HAVE ALWAYS SUPPORTED TRUMP OVER HILLARY,LLOYD GRAY
December 13, 2016,6:03 pm
I THINK HE IS A VERY GOOD CHOICE

even though i don’t support trump, i like he decisions
I am pleased with Mr. Tillerson as Sec. of State. My goodness, the man his contacts around the globe, is a business man and can put deals together. He is not a lifetime politician and I feel he has the concern of America first, unlike politicians like Kerry who put the Iran deal together.
Even though I am a stout conservative, the only thing that worries me about Rick Perry is that he will keep his mouth closed some and not go out and try to buy advertisement for himself by running his mouth too much. STICK WITH THE PROGRAM MR. PERRY.

As for Rick Perry, he’ll make a great Energy Secretary, and if Donald Trump is serious about cutting the size of government, Perry can dismantle the department as well as anybody. The Energy Dept. is one place we DO NOT want someone with “industry experience,” because every jerk secretary we’ve HAD with Energy experience (oil & gas, solar, or anything else) has ended up EXPANDING the department’s efforts, not dismantling it. Rick Perry has — in this case — the right stuff. HE can take it apart.

David Benepe: You’re a day late suggesting Bolton for State. But John Bolton IS likely to be #2 (Deputy Secretary) in the State Dept., and when the ExxonMobil guy flames out, Bolton can move up.

I think John Bolton is the right man for Secretary of State. Someone should advise Trump
“And, you know, what I want to know is what has John Lewis done since he marched on Selma? Really. He’s riding on the coattails of something that happened over 50 years ago. And it’s just, to me, his position in Congress is illegitimate.”
“You know, we’d even had recounts in this election where the numbers for the president-elect had actually gone up. There’s no question about the legitimacy of this election, and for John Lewis to make those statements is deeply disappointing.” — Mike Pence
