The Washington Examiner's Timothy Carney has a column with the negatives on Governor Perry: "his policies -- from backroom drug company giveaways to green energy subsidies -- eerily mirror the unseemly big business-big government collusion that has characterized President Obama's presidency. Judging by his record in Texas, Perrynomics might just be low-tax Obamanomics." Well, if the choice is between Obama's high-tax — I mean, "balanced" — Obamanomics and Perry's low-tax Obamanomics, there will be a lot of takers for the low-tax Obamanomics. And Governor Perry would probably say he sees the role of a governor as different from the role of a president, because he's for moving government power closer to the people it affects rather than centralizing it in a powerful Washington.
Anyway, if you are interested in Mr. Perry, Mr. Carney's column is worth a look as a balance to my review of Mr. Perry's book Fed Up!
