Michelle Malkin: Rick Perry’s Bad Medicine

Go Michelle Malkin! The following is an excerpt from a National Review piece by Malkin, detailing exactly how bad of a president Rick Perry's record in Texas suggests he would be:

"Texas, we have a problem. Your GOP governor is running for president against Barack Obama. Yet one of his most notable acts as executive of the nation’s second-largest state smacks of every worst habit of the Obama administration. And his newly crafted rationalizations for the atrocious decision are positively Clintonesque.

In February 2007, Gov. Rick Perry signed a shocking executive order forcing every sixth-grade girl to submit to a three-jab regimen of the Gardasil vaccine. He also forced state health officials to make the vaccine available “free” to girls aged nine to 18. The drug, promoted by manufacturer Merck as an effective shield against the sexually transmitted human papillomavirus (HPV) and genital warts, as well as cervical cancer, had been approved by the Food and Drug Administration just eight months before Perry’s edict."

After a thorough demolition job of Rick Perry's ridiculous, big-government, nanny-state policy in Texas, as well as his lame "apology" for it and the arguments his supporters use to defend him, Michelle Malkin concludes:

"Trusting Rick Perry’s tea-party credentials is a perilous shot in the dark."
