She was back in headline-making mode today, this time blaming the Obama administration for her son’s job loss, reports CNN. “He resigned his job two weeks ago because he can’t go out and campaign with his father because of SEC regulations,” she said. “He has a wife… he’s trying to start a business.

What do you think about Mrs. Perry’s allegation?
