The Texas Way

On the occasion of the President’s Lone Star stops, Rick Perry puts out an official government statement on the state’s voter ID law that takes several whacks:

“Perhaps while the President is visiting Texas, he can take a break from big-dollar fundraisers to disavow his Attorney General’s offensive and incendiary comments regarding our common-sense voter identification law.

“In labeling the Texas voter ID law as a ‘poll tax,’ Eric Holder purposefully used language designed to inflame passions and incite racial tension. It was not only inappropriate, but simply incorrect on its face.

“The President should apologize for Holder’s imprudent remarks and for his insulting lawsuit against the people of Texas.”
