I tried for a few minutes, but there's a limit to how much garbage one can ingest. Andrew Sullivan summarizes (all times eastern):
8.49 pm. Does Perry really think that the stimulus created no jobs? Truly, a wretched little twerp, dispatched on Tea Party theology by Ron Paul.
8.46 pm. So far, we have repealed universal health insurance, Dodd-Frank, much of the Pentagon, the Department of Education, and are so-so on Medicare and social security. What should government actually do to help the economy? Cut and reform taxes. Unless Obama proposes to cut taxes. Then that's more spending.
8.43 pm. Perry seems to believe that tax cuts will be paid for by tax raises. Seriously, this guy is frightening. He gets asked how to pay for tax cuts, and he gives us a lecture about spending. Now, tax cuts are government spending - just because Obama is proposing it.
That really is staggering. They will offer no response on Obama's jobs bill and can only really offer platitudes and doctrines. God this is depressing.
He describes Perry as having "the charm of a televangelist, and the smugness," which sounds about right.
