Rick Perry is desperate to get traction. He debuted at the top of the polls past summer when entered into the Republican presidential race to challenge Pres. Obama in 2012 general election. THEN, he started to speak, in doing so, he opened up his big can whoopas$. He said stuff like Social Security is a Ponzi-scheme. This stuff even concerned the Republican primary voters.
Now he's trying to rediscover his thunder by launching a new wave of attacks against Washington - after all, if you don't have new plans, then attack Washington. This always works. "Uproot, tear down and rebuild" Washington is the way Rick Perry's going to change Washington.
"It is time to tear down the monuments to bureaucratic failure, and in their place build a smaller, more efficient federal government that puts the American people first," Perry said at a manufacturing facility in Bettendorf. "The Washington insiders won't address Beltway decay, they won't try a totally new way, because they like things as they are."
"It is time to tear down the monuments to bureaucratic failure, and in their place build a smaller, more efficient federal government that puts the American People first," Perry said, declaring himself the only true outsider in the Republican presidential field.
