Gov. Rick Perry campaigns for the presidency with an expressed philosophy that the federal government should allow the states to take care of themselves and that the federal government should "be irrelevant in our lives."
But now with the tragic fires in Texas he complains bitterly that that same "evil" government is too slow to respond with assistance to Texas. He obviously (like too many politicians) does not believe his own rhetoric.
What the tea-party people seem to really believe is, "don't bother me or help anyone else, but send money for my needs."
