6. Ferry underwent back surgery in July 2011.

JFK suffered from chromic back pain throughout his adult life. "There was hardly a day that went by that he didn't suffer terribly," Jack "had osteoporosis of the lower back, causing pain so severe that he was (at times) unable to perform simple tasks such as reaching across his desk to pull papers forward, or pulling the shoe and sock onto his left foot"

There is one class ( and only one ) approved and effective forf the treatment of chronic pain: Opioids.

If Perry's medics gave him too high a dose, or if such was required, he would be, as you put it 'high as a kite'. My point was, and is chronic pain does not disqualify one to be President or to be a good president.

Perry would have been a bottom of the barrel President, with or without pain medication. There is a fair chance he would have been a better President than Romney who (I presume) will never get that opportunity. That's how highly I rate Romney.

If you want to poke fun at chronic pain, go ahead, but watch you back. Opioids, all opioids, induce hallucinogenic anesthesia.
