Rick Perry, orator

Texas Gov. Rick Perry has inspired his own T-shirt with the above statesman-like words he uttered following a press conference. In doing so, he takes his own special place in the pecking order of great American orators:
JFK: "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can for your country."
Nixon: "I am not a crook."
Tx Gov. Preston Smith: "What in the world do they have against frijoles?" "
Lincoln: "A house divided will not stand."
FDR: "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."
George Herbert Walker Bush: "Read my lips. No new taxes."
Dan Quayle: "Potato. P-O-T-A-T-O-E. Potato."
President Bill Clinton: "It depends of what the definition of is is."
Rick Perry: "Adios, Mofo."
