Rick Perry’s Mother: ‘I Don’t Always Agree With Him,’ But He ‘Wants What’s Best For America’

(By Alex Alvarez, Mediaite) - In an interview with 'The Dallas Morning News', the parents of Texas governor Rick Perry say they support and endorse their son, fiercely… even if his mother, Amelia Perry, doesn’t always agree with him 100 percent.

“I may be a little biased,” she admitted, “but I don’t think he’s perfect and I don’t always agree with him. But he’s smarter than I am and he wants what’s best for America.” That straight forward attitude seems typical for Mrs. Perry, who, the report shares, was not afraid to confront a pastor who preached that “all politicians lie.”
