This is a short follow-up to Ian Reifowitz' fine diary yesterday on "poor" Phil Mickelson's woes about taxes

Seems as though he has some regrets:

"Finances and taxes are a personal matter, and I should not have made my opinions on them public," Mickelson said in a statement released late Monday night. "I apologize to those I have upset or insulted, and assure you I intend to not let it happen again."
What he really means below the fold...

You see, he really isn't happy about the tax changes--but he is REALLY sorry that he spoke out about it:

The four-time major champion didn't back away from his outlook, only his decision to talk about it.
Fear not, Phil there are places you can go to; and have your "Freedom AND more money:

Rick Perry weighs in with a tweet:

"Hey Phil....Texas is home to liberty and low taxes...we would love to have you as well!!"
I once thought he was a cool guy; now I see he's just another over compensated asshole, who thinks it's all about ME!

Phil, why don't you and Lance get together and whine about how tough life has been lately.....???

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
