Governor Rick Perry Calls President Obama A "Big Black Cloud"

 

Rick Perry Calls Obama a “Big Black Cloud”

Texas Governor Rick Perry, who recently announced he would be running for president in 2012, might want to choose his words a little more wisely.

According to reports, when speaking of President Barack Obama, Perry referred to the President as a, “big black cloud” hanging over the country and also added that there is a “big black guy running the country and I’m not too happy about it.”

From Loop21.com:

When talking about the state of the economy and how President Barack Obama is handling it, he chose some rather colorful language.

“He says he’s on a listening tour, so I’m going to talk to him,” said Perry with this Texas twang.

“Mr. President, you need to free up the employers of this country to create jobs…I’m a pro-business governor, I don’t make any apologies about it and I will be a pro-business president.”

After that he said that a “big black cloud” was hanging over the country. In Perry-speak that means there’s a “big black guy running the country and I’m not too happy about it.”

But Obama wasn’t the only person in Perry’s crosshairs. He also attacked the real president Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.

In response to whispers of Bernanke possibly printing more money, Perry quipped, “If this guy prints more money between now and the election, I dunno what y’all would do to him in Iowa but we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas.”

Does this sound like someone that should be the next U.S. president? Doubt that.

    You lie. Perry did not refer to the “big black cloud” being Obama. What he said, EXACTLY what he said, is “Being able to pay off 14 and-a-half trillion . . . 16 trillion dollars worth of debt, that big black cloud that hangs over America, that debt that is so monstrous.” You likely got that doctored quote from Ed Schultz of MSNBC who edited out the second half of what he said and just stated that the black cloud was Obama. What Perry said was the black cloud was the DEBT . . .NOT Obama. Perry said nothing that was racist. You should be ashamed of yourself for furthering this lie.

    Hip hop wired = spin, lies, and racism. Go do your own research before posting “reports” that are clearly untrue.

  • johnny

    Randy Roper should be fired.

  • shande

    Clearly race baiting.

  • Joe Texan

    Remember, you can’t spell “CRAP” without “RAP”.

  • Buttered Biscuit

    This was all retracted when Ed Schultz was exposed as ‘creatively editing’ the slur. You guys need to check your facts and look at the real issues instead of old-time politics.

  • mmm

    Y’all need to get your facts straight before you put something as fact in print! Shameful reporting!

  • Mark

    You have no argument so you bring the race card to the table. Listen to the whole sentence. This is a site for mindless idiots!

  • Know It All

    C’mon son…GTFOHWTBS!

  • HipHopThinker

    C’mon Son, that quote is not even close to what he said or what he meant. I’ve been coming to this site for my hip hop news for a long time, and I don’t recall you guys making as big an error as you did on this one, please do better in the future, I’ll keep coming back to see how you make this one right. Much Love and keep it real.

  • Zander_SIG

    He needs to be FIRED! This is one to many times now! This man has no decency, ethics or Integrity! See how the BIG MEDIA lies… he was hoping that no one would catch on to his lies this time! This man has got to go (FIRED)! You do not tell lies about people just because they have a different political view! These hard lefties want free speech abolished except for their free speech! Listen to the whole clip, Perry is talking about the 17 TRILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT THAT WE OWE!

  • Cnote

    You need to take 30 seconds and read Rick Perry’s whole quote. He’s talking about the national debt. This “reporting” is a joke!

  • Slizzie

    This is a lie. I thought this was a professional site

  • Troy Miles

    No, the black cloud is “that debt that is so monstrous.” Ed and everyone else who uses this quote should show the whole statement & stop deceiving Americans.

  • Jeff

    Retract your lie, change your headline, you are distorting his quote about the out of control DEBT, not the President.

  • jersey

    when the dems go to the race card, it means one thing, the left are on the ropes and are about to go down !!!! …..2012…..A new beginning…..

  • Big_B

    WHOA…I hope you all retract this article soon or post another of how awful your research is and formally apologize to your subscribers and visitors of your website. You all clearly did absolutely no research on this one. This looks to me like race baiting and/or laziness. smhh.

  • sandra

    don”t vote for perry, just that simple he is BUSH ALL OVER AGAIN!

  • RaceBaitingForAdClicks

    I don’t care too much for Perry, but that quote was taken completely out of context and the comment “big black guy running the country and I’m not too happy about it.” didn’t come from Perry. Black media websites are engaging in a bit too much race baiting these days.
