Perry's debate flub

Perry, as the front-runner, was piled on in yesterday's debate on government mandated vaccinations.  

He acknowledged that he shouldn't have used an executive order, but defended the policy with this line:

"We made decisions in Texas to put a $3 billion effort to find [a] cure for cancer. Texas protects life."

We have enough problems with Democrats who don't understand the proper role of government. But, that a Republican - at a "tea party" debate - would claim that government has a role in finding the 'cure for cancer' is remarkable.

Perry lost points in my book on that one. We need a candidate with small government instincts. It doesn't matter whether 'his heart was in the right place'. That's the liberal's excuse. Perry isn't allowed to use it.
