Perry: ‘Quit playing politics, Mr. President’

Gov. Rick Perry slammed the looming federal budget cuts known as sequestration as a national “failure of leadership” Tuesday and said President Obama should “quit playing politics.”

Perry, talking to reporters after a speech to a National Federation of Independent Business/Texas conference, suggested there’s blame to go around but said Obama bears the brunt of it.

“Certainly I think both sides could stand in a circle and point to the left and get it right to say it’s their fault,” Perry said, “but Americans are begging for leadership.”

Perry said states like Texas approach accountability in government correctly.
