Rick Perry Praises Hillarycare

Labels:
Texas Governor Rick Perry has been among the most vocal critics of President Obama’s health care reform initiative, and of Mitt Romney’s preceding health care program in Massachusetts. But in 1993, while serving as Texas Agriculture Commissioner, Perry praised the efforts of then-first lady Hillary Clinton to reform health care, a precursor to Obama’s health care reform efforts. In a letter to Clinton, who is now U.S. Secretary of State, Perry wrote: “I think your efforts in trying to reform the nation’s health care system are most commendable.”
It is fairly clear that Rick Perry can not attack others on the healthcare issue, unless he really makes a case as to how and when he realized that federal public healthcare was no good. Rick Perry might take a look at attempting transparency to save his campaign. Most Americans have thought about both sides of the healthcare issue and opinions didn't solidify until we were actually faced with an Obamacare reality. To be caught as a flip flopper would of been fine if he had not attacked Romney on the issue. The same might be said of Aga Khan and Islam. Most Americans did not realize the extent of revisionism that was going on in America due to Muslim influence until after Obama became president. Perry can beat these issues, but he has to come clean about what he really believes in. America in the internet age will not be lied to. You can't give a sound bite reply anymore because people will explore it online and if dirty laundry comes up... you are in trouble. The old Karl Rove perspective of spin will no longer work. You might say it didn't work starting in Bush's second term. Most of us are reading about this online. You can't give an Islam is a religion of peace speech like G W Bush did, when the average guy can go online and do a word search for the violent passages in the words of Mohammad and then find out the context due to chronological order. The same is true with healtcare. The old politics of Texas bullshit will not fly with an internet search.
