Texas Governor Noted Obama-critic and anti-gay bigot Rick Perry has a new target for his venom: fellow Republicans Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney.
VOICEOVER: We don't want government-mandated health care, yet Newt Gingrich supports it. And Mitt Romney ... he put it into law in Massachusetts. Worse, Barack Obama forced it on the entire nation. Rick Perry, he'll repeal it starting day one.
RICK PERRY: I won't let the big government liberals ruin this country. I'm Rick Perry, I'm an outsider who will repeal Obamacare, and I approved this message.
Yeah, Rick Perry's such an outsider that he threatened to secede from the country before he decided he wanted to lead it. And he clearly hasn't spent much time looking inside the text of the U.S. Constitution, because presidents don't have the power to repeal legislation, let alone do it on day one.
But I'll give him credit for this: Unlike Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney, Rick Perry has never once supported "government-mandated health care." Of course, there was that one time that he did praise Hillary Clinton's "most commendable" efforts to achieve universal coverage, but what's a little experimentation among friends, right?
