Perry Makes Freedom Tingle
As a man who was raised on a farm, Rick Perry makes a powerful appeal to Iowa voters on how "It's men and women like you who still believe in this country." And he makes a powerful pitch that recovery can happen if you just get government (ie Obama) out of the way.
I know how to create jobs. You let the private sector - free 'em up from overtaxation, free 'em up from overregulation, free 'em up from over-litigation, then government get out of the way! Let the private sector do what the private sector knows how to do.
Without specifically making the link, Perry is articulating a belief in American drive and the power of capitalism that is in direct opposition to Obamaism. So, no tingles up the leg of Chris Matthews.
