Clueless Rick Perry Will Soon Be In Charge Of Nukes


AMONG DONALD TRUMP’S PICKS WHO
SEEM ILL REPAIRED TO DEAL WITH THE POSITIONS THEY WERE CHOSEN
FOR, YOU HAVE PERRY WAS NOMINATED AS ENERGY SECRETARY. APPARENTLY REPAIR IT DIDN’T REALLY HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING OF
WHAT THAT JOB WOULD ENTAIL, AND THAT’S ACCORDING TO REPUBLICAN
INSIDERS AND LOBBYISTS. FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE WONDERING
WHAT DOES IT MEAN, WHAT ARE YOU IN CHARGE OF IF YOU ARE ENERGY
SECRETARY, YOU ACTUALLY HAVE A LOT TO DO WITH OUR NUCLEAR
WEAPONS. IN FACT, ACCORDING TO THE NEW YORK TIMES — SO IT SOUNDS LIKE A HEFTY
JOB, A DIFFICULT JOB, AND IN THE PAST WHEN RICK PERRY WAS CLEAR
ABOUT HOW HE WANTED TO CUT THE DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY — WHEN HE
REMARRIED THE NAME — HE WAS LIKE, I DON’T KNOW, ARE THE EVEN
CREATING ENERGY? THAT WAS ONE OF HIS STATEMENTS. SO HE DIDN’T
HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING. NOW, IF YOU THINK I’M JUST A DEMOCRATIC
HACK AND DON’T BELIEVE ME, HERE IS A COMMENT FROM MICHAEL
MCKENNA, REPUBLICAN ENERGY LOBBYIST. HERE’S WHAT HE SAID — THIS GUY WAS ON RICK’S 2016
CAMPAIGN, SO HE’S NOT AGAINST RICK PERRY, HE’S FOR RICK PERRY. AND HE SAYS THE GUY WANTED TO BE PRESIDENT IS SUCH A MORON THAT
HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT THE DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY DOES. APPARENTLY IN THE BEGINNING HE BELIEVED HE WOULD BE A GLOBAL
AMBASSADOR FOR THE OIL AND GAS COMPANIES. ESSENTIALLY JUST LIKE A
LOBBYIST OR SOMETHING, WHERE YOU GO AROUND LOBBYING FOR ENERGY
COMPANIES. BUT NO, THAT’S ACTUALLY NOT WHAT THE JOB
IS. WE JUST STATED WHAT IT DOESN’T TAIL. I NEED YOU TO UNDERSTAND HOW
AMAZING THAT IS ON A COUPLE DIFFERENT FRONTS. NUMBER ONE, HE
WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO BEING A LOBBYIST FOR THE OIL COMPANIES
AS OUR SECRETARY OF ENERGY. HE WANTED TO DO THAT, HE’S LIKE,
I’M NOT WORKING FOR THE OIL COMPANIES LIKE I DID WHEN I WAS
GOVERNOR OF TEXAS? GOLLY GEE, I LIKE THAT JOB. NUMBER TWO, HE
RAN FOR PRESIDENT — HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT ONE OF THE CABINET
POSITIONS DOES. BUT NUMBER THREE WHEN HE RAN FOR PRESIDENT IN
2012, HE RAN IN 2016 AND GOT EMBARRASSED, HE ALSO GOT
EMBARRASSED IN 2012, HE WANTED TO ELIMINATE THE DEPARTMENT OF
ENERGY. WE WILL GET TO THAT IN A
SECOND, THAT PART IS HILARIOUS. BUT FIRST I HAVE TO COMPARE RICK
PERRY TO THE PERSON HE WILL REPLACE, THE PERSON WHO WORKED
IN THE SAME POSITION UNDER THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. HIS NAME
IS ERNEST MONIZ — THE JOKE IS ON US, MAN. THESE
GUYS ARE IN CHARGE. OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS. LET THAT
SINK IN FOR A SECOND. TO BE FAIR, HE DID DO ANIMAL
HUSBANDRY, AND [ANIMALS ARE INNOCENT]. NO ONE IS ARGUING THAT. WE
ARE CONCERNED BECAUSE BEING IN CHARGE OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS SOUNDS
LIKE AN IMPORTANT JOB, BUT SENATE REPUBLICAN DON’T THINK WE
NEED SCIENTISTS TO FILL THESE ROLES AND MAKE THESE TYPES OF
DECISIONS. HERE IS SENATOR MURKOWSKI REFERRING TO PERRY,
TAKE A LOOK. ONE OF THE CHALLENGES FACING
THE SECRETARY OF ENERGY IS THE MANAGEMENT OF A LARGE AND
COMPLEX ORGANIZATION WITH THOUSANDS OF EMPLOYEES AND TENS
OF THOUSANDS OF CONTRACTORS. I DO NOT SUBSCRIBE TO THE VIEW
THAT ONLY A SCIENTIST CAN MANAGE OTHER SCIENTISTS, INSTEAD I
THINK WHAT WE NEED IS A GOOD MANAGER. WE NEED A MANAGER TO
MANAGE ALL THESE SCIENTISTS. WE NEED A GOOD MANAGER WITH
GREAT EXPERTISE IN ANIMAL HUSBANDRY. BY THE WAY, IF YOU
ARE INTO THAT, GOD BLESS YOUR HEART, NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT
DEGREE AT ALL. AND HE WAS A CHEERLEADER, WHICH I’M ALWAYS
AMUSED BY, BUT THAT’S MY FAULT. I UNDERSTAND THERE ARE MALE
CHEERLEADERS, ESPECIALLY IN THE SOUTH. GEORGE W. BUSH WAS ALSO A
MALE CHEERLEADER, ALTHOUGH IN THE NORTHEAST, I GUESS IT WAS A
DIFFERENT ERA. IS ALWAYS LIKE, GIVE ME AN “N” — BUT THAT’S
NOT THE MANAGEMENT SKILL YOU NEED WHEN YOU ARE IN CHARGE
OF THE DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY, IT’S A DIFFERENT SKILL SET. IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT
SOMEONE’S BACKGROUND IS, I DON’T CARE IF HE HAS A COLUMBIA
JOURNALISM DEGREE, HE WOULD STILL BE UNQUALIFIED FOR THIS
POSITION. BESIDES WHICH, HE DIDN’T EVEN KNOW WHAT THE
POSITION ENTAILED. I AM WORRIED FOR THE WELL-BEING AND THE
SAFETY OF THIS COUNTRY. WE HAVE THE INSANE CLOWN POSSE NOW
LEADING THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. IT GIVES YOU A GOOD SENSE OF
THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY AND THE REPUBLIC AND PARTY. IT’S NOT
LIKE THE DEMOCRATS DON’T HAVE THEIR PROBLEMS, THEY DO. BUT WHO
IS THE SMART PARTY AND WHO IS THE DUMB PARTY? IT’S NOT A CLOSE
CONTEST. NOT THAT ALL REPUBLICANS ARE STUPID, OF
COURSE NOT. THEY HAVE A LOT OF RICH FOLKS WHO ARE GOOD AT
MAKING MONEY, THEY ARE PLENTY BRIGHT, THEY JUST WANT LOWER
TAXES. I UNDERSTAND THAT. BUT IF YOU ARE IN THAT GROUP, AREN’T
YOU A LITTLE EMBARRASSED ABOUT YOUR PARTY? ONE PARTY PUTS
NUCLEAR PHYSICISTS IN CHARGE OF THE DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY AND YOU
FEEL A LITTLE SAFER ABOUT ADVANCING OUR NUCLEAR
TECHNOLOGY, THE OTHER GUY GOES, HEY, RICK, YOU WERE LOYAL TO ME,
WHAT YOU THINK? I LIKE OIL COMPANIES, CAN I BE IN, DONNIE? GO AHEAD IN, RICKY. HE IS LIKE, IT’S NUCLEAR STUFF, I DON’T KNOW
THAT. TO GO BACK TO THE POINT ANA JUST BROUGHT UP, HE WANTED
TO GET RID OF THE DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY, BUT HE DIDN’T KNOW WHAT
THEY DID. WHY DID YOU WANT TO GET RID OF IT IF YOU DIDN’T KNOW
WHAT IT DOES? IF YOU TOLD HIM IN 2012 THEY TAKE CARE OF OUR
NUKES, THAT IS TWO THIRDS OF OUR JOB, YOU WANT TO GET RIVARD
NUKES? HE WOULD BE LIKE — [OOPS]. WHICH OF COURSE COMES
FROM THAT MOMENT.

    I think probably Trump also believed the job involved lobbying for oil companies in other countries. This administration is going to be the blind and deaf leading the blind.

    Welcome to Mexico. I say this, because, you got career politicians who knows absolutely nothing about the department that he/she is head of. They (the politicians) care about 2 things: the power and, you guessed it, Lebowski … the money. Hold on to your seats, brace for impact and start praying (especially the agnostics, we need EVERYONE).

    The "oops" guy who wanted to get rid of the department that oversees the United States Nuclear Arsenal (but couldn't remember its name) is now going to be in charge of the entire United States Nuclear Arsenal… OOPS!

    For everyone who cheered their victory on Nov 8th. 3:35.

    For everyone who cried that the liberals were picking on you, and that this will "show them". 3:35.

    For everyone talking about "liberal tears". 3:35.

    That laugh is your next 4 years. You proved us right about everything Republicans. Way to go.

    Job of news media is to report news. Not influence the audience. TYT have lost their way and cannot be considered a genuine news organisation. Their Clinton bias shines through every argument they make. It's a shame… they showed so much promise

    In college "Perry also did poorly on classes within his animal science major. In fall semester 1970, he received a D in veterinary anatomy, a F in a second course on organic chemistry and a C in animal breeding. He did get an A in world military systems and 'Improv. of Learning' — his only two As while at A&M." – Huffington Post 5 Oct 2011

    Don't forget, indicted on felony charges, abuse of power and coercion for attempting to blackmail an integrity office official. I suppose now Perry can grease the palm of TX based, defense contractor and missile maker Raytheon for all those new missile contracts to go with all those new nuke war heads.Just one of many tRump deplorables

    Typical western management structure. People upstairs get there based on relation. I've worked in the IT industry for many years. The majority of the directors and up (including a lot of managers) don't know how to logon to the system they are supposed to manage. They have no idea how to make decisions or "directing". Some of them pay big bucks to consulting firms for advice instead of talking to people under them.

    Government needs to be dismantled one piece at a time, this includes the department of energy. There should be no departments of anything ran by the government.

    I worked at the DOE as a research intern. The research done there was fascinating. I used to look up to the leader ship and it motivated me with my studies. This is deflating. Hopefully Mr. Perry doesn't cut funding and make these people transfer to industry when public service was of value to them.

    It seems like Trump does things to see how big a pile of crap people will look at and say, 'ok'. He has done this ever since he got a spotlight.He must go to bed at night laughing his ass off at us looking at Rick Perry.

    Wow Americans are really stupid to have voted for Trump. Just like how leftist European leaders were stupid for letting in muslims into our beautiful continent.

    Cenk, longest serving governor ever in the State of figure it out. Oh excuse me, I forgot you have never heard of that State. Progressives do not know it even exists. Pull  a US map out of your fat ass and see it you can locate it. It is not color coded for you either. Think Red you moron. Another hint, two living presidents still reside there. It is one of the very few states that have a budget surplus that could fund your appetite and the rest of the liberals and progressives for a lifetime.

    Yes, this Country is now a world wide joke, with a dumbass who has been appointed to be the new Energy Secretary. All he has to do is remember where his office is, and all we have to do is hope he doesn't lean on the wrong button trying to request his secretary get a drink for some oil tycoon he's entertaining. Soon, the name of this Country will be changed to "The Billionaires Club of North America", and all you brilliant republicans who voted for Trump will be getting what you deserve! You asked for it, you'll get it: Trump!
