"when you have a politician traveling across the country selling a state with low regulatory capacity, that politician also has to be accountable for what happens when that lack of regulation proves to be fatal.
That's exponentially more offensive to me."Rick Perry has responded to the above cartoon "with extreme disgust and disappointment."
Governor, the cartoon that disgusts and disappoints this Texas citizen even more than the one pictured above is that of a callous elected state representative running around the country suggesting that his state condones your lazy and lackadaisical oversight of the hundreds of dangerous enterprises currently operating here.
The cartoon character who, after witnessing 14 people killed, over 200 injured and more than 350 homes damaged, trotted to Illinois and said, "Through their elected officials [people] clearly send the message of their comfort with the amount of oversight.”
That, Mr. Perry is the epitome of disgusting, disappointing rhetoric.
