Perry Blasts California as He Eyes Another Bid

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) traveled to California to contrast that state's "big government, protectionist, nanny state" with his "limited-government, unsubsidized, freedom state," the Los Angeles Times reports.

It's his attempt to lay the groundwork for another presidential bid after the first one in 2012 didn't go so well.

"A second try depends on Perry's ability to dramatically alter his image. To that end, the governor is coursing across the country with new hipster glasses and a more disciplined approach, taking on Democratic governors' policies, trying to swipe their state's jobs, and putting himself prominently in the public eye."
