Steve Deace has some harsh words for Rick Perry

I try to stay positive on this blog, but here is a very important story that should be getting more attention. Steve Deace was one of the most influential voices in the Iowa Caucuses four years ago and was largely credited with Mitt Romney's disappointing second place finish. Today, Deace said on his radio show of the Perry campaign: "“This is like watching a sweater unravel."

From Tony Leys of the Des Moines-Register:
“He’s like an NFL quarterback who has a contract holdout. He’s not there for the preseason, he’s not there all off-season. He signs on the Monday before the season starts, and he’s the star quarterback, so you put him in right away,” Deace said. “His timing with his receivers isn’t there. The nuances and the changes they made to the playbook to get ready for a new season – he hasn’t caught up to those things yet. And, lo and behold, before you know it, your team is 0-2 – and 0-2 teams don’t make the playoffs.”
On the in-state tuition for illegal immigrants issue:
Perry was defending himself against allegations that he encouraged illegal immigration by supporting a Texas plan granting in-state college tuition to the children of illegal immigrants. The governor said that if critics disapprove of educating such young people, “I don’t think you have a heart.”

Deace said that stance is insulting to many conservatives, who think it’s unfair to offer discounted tuition to illegal immigrants while denying it to U.S. citizens who live in other states. “That’s going to kill him. That’s stuff Barack Obama says,” Deace said. “You don’t walk into a Republican primary audience and say stuff like that to them. … To say stuff like that to a Republican primary audience shows a guy that’s defensive, unprepared and unpolished.”
