    Perry Points to ‘Idiotic’ U.S. Rule That Doesn’t Exist

    For a small-government conservative on the presidential campaign stump like Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a new federal regulation forcing farmers to get commercial drivers licenses would make a perfect example of Barack Obama’s Washington run amok.

    But there is no such regulation

    Oh, how selective. There was a proposed regulation in the works, which was apparently killed about 4-5 days ago:

    UPDATE ON: DOT To Mandate All Farm Vehicles Require CDL Licenses, Could Bring Demise To Farmers… | Project World Awareness

    DOT: Farmers Won’t Need Commercial Driver’s License - Madison News Story - WISC Madison

    Now, would it not be reasonable to think maybe he hadn't been updated on the status of that proposed regulation, given that (at the time) it had only been dead for a couple of days?

    As always you should read your sources instead of letting others tell you what they say.

    It is worth repeating that neither the May 31 notice nor today’s notice propose or proposed any rule change or new safety requirements. Instead, the Agency sought feedback from farm organizations, farmers, and the public on the agency’s long-standing interpretations of existing rules, so it could then determine whether any adjustments were needed to improve understanding of the current safety regulations.
    It's not until you get into the interpretation of the blog writer that it claims a new regulation, despite what the document actually says.

    I read it. And I read the second link. They were seeking feedback because they were considering the regulation. After the received feedback they decided against regulation. It was up for consideration, and Perry's phrasing made it clear that the regulation didn't currently exist through his choice of verbs.

    The OP was spin.

    Hardly. If you are planning on running for President, you best do your homework. Hardly an unreasonable position. Unless you're a right wing apologist of course.

    Every politican confuses issues or mispeaks. Every single one.

    This is a stupid issue to use to discredit him or any politician. There's more ammo in the "prerry likes religious nuts" thread. This is weaksauce.

    So did you crucify Obama when he was campaigning and threw out the 57 states comment?

    By this reasoning lets see all the phantom promises Obama didn't do his homework on, unless you're a left wing apologist of course ...

    You apparently have not paid attention. Illinois(this is a state, not the federal government) was who was considering the change. The article is actually factually correct.

    Another source: http://www.politifact.com/texas/stat...ire-commercia/

    Far as we can tell, the regulation questioned by Perry hasn't even been proposed at the federal level. We rate his statement False.
    Spin does not seem to mean what you think it does...

    Slight difference between misspeaking, and getting substantive facts wrong. It looks like Perry has admitted the mistake and it's a done deal now, but to attack those pointing out his mistake(this is why Perry has had to admit his mistake, and fact checking is a good thing), or dismissing it because another politician made a mistake too is silly.
