    I like Rick Perry for when Obama refused to protect Texas’s borders against illegals, Perry sent in the national guard. He came from humble beginnings. His dad was a tenant farmer in west TX. Perry pulled himself up by the boot straps and has done very well. I saw him in Columbus, OH in Aug., 2015 not 2105 which we haven’t gotten to yet. When I heard/saw him speak, he was running for president, but later dropped out.

    Rick Perry is a good man. I heard him speak at an Americans for Prosperity summit in Columbus, OH August, 2105

    Rick Perry is a dumb ass who has no business being in the cabinet of the President of the USA.

    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….

    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.

    Rick Perry is part of the elite underground society , i do not like him .

    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.

  20. David Benepe

    I think John Bolton is the right man for Secretary of State. Someone should advise Trump
