Flip Flop Flip Flop -Is Rick Perry A States Righter? For Big Government? For Secession? Who Knows?

because he will say whatever he wants to whoever he thinks he can snooker.

From his website where he touts the 10th amendment.

Ooops. Except that he ticked off The Response cultists who don't want states to be able to decide issues like gay marriage or abortion, they want a Theocracy that will force those decisions on a national basis. So one day, Perry says I'm for gay marrage (when it came to NY) , next day he is for states rights because that ticked off the nutters, and then the next day he said, because that didn't go quite far enough for the nutters, said he was for a federal amendment to end rights. He did about the same thing with abortion, went from states rights to saying he's for a national law against abortion.

Here's Time Magazine on Flip Flopper Rick Perry- Rick Perry's Retreat from Federalism

So Perry did not hesitate when he was asked on July 23 what he thought about New York state legalizing gay marriage. “That is their call,” he said. “If you believe in the 10th Amendment, stay out of their business.” A few days later, there was no quaver in his voice when asked if states should be able to allow abortion. “You either have to believe in the 10th Amendment or you don’t,” Perry said.  “You can’t believe in the 10th Amendment for a few issues and then [for] something that doesn’t suit you say, ‘We’d rather not have states decide that.’”

Crystal clear. Principled. Uncompromising. Except, not really.

The problem is that Perry is courting social conservatives in his bid for President of the United States. So in a matter of days, he backtracked on both statements. He now says he supports a federal constitutional amendment that would effectively nullify the New York legislature’s ability to enact same-sex marriage. A spokeswoman for Perry also now says he supports “amending the U.S. Constitution, with the backing of Congress and the states, to protect innocent life.”

But, this completely conflicts with what he says in his book Fed Up!

Flip Flop. What a FLAKE!
