“Let me go on the record as saying, I believe in Satan,” (Rick) Perry said when Smith asked him about his recent comments that Satan is running across the world pushing untruths. Perry had said one untruth that’s out there is that people of faith shouldn’t be in the public arena.
“If you don’t want to think there is forces of darkness and spirits and spiritual warfare, that’s your call,” Perry said.
When the questions segued to budget issues, Perry quipped, “Now we can really talk about Satan.”
(Mitt) Romney’s wife, Ann, was in attendance, and the candidate spoke of the concern he had for her when her plane had to make an emergency landing Friday en route to Santa Monica because of an electrical malfunction.
“I appreciate the fact that she is on the ground, safe and sound. And I don’t think she knows just how worried some of us were,” Romney said. “When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly, there’s no — and you can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. So it’s very dangerous. And she was choking and rubbing her eyes. Fortunately, there was enough oxygen for the pilot and copilot to make a safe landing in Denver. But she’s safe and sound.”
I would like to know what, exactly, disqualified Rick Perry.
