Rick Perry Highlights Federal Education Takeover in Beck Interview

In a sign of growing traction for Presidential politics, prospective Republican Presidential candidate Rick Perry rattles off a list of his understanding of federal overreach. Around the 3:30 mark, Mr. Perry says, “And it’s really that competition, Glenn, that’s going to make America strong again. It’s the federal government kind of getting out of our hair. The idea that they are telling us how to educate our children or how to deliver health care, or how, for that matter, to clean our air. It’s really nonsense.”

Unfortunately, Mr. Beck did not ask any follow up questions. However, the media will not be able to ignore issues brought up by prospective Presidential candidates. Let us hope that this trend continues.
