ATLANTA (WAOK)-Texas Gov. Rick Perry made his first appearance in Georgia as a presidential candidate Friday. Speaking to a conference sponsored by the Georgia Public Policy Foundation at the Cobb Energy Centre, Perry took shots at both President Obama and his cheif opponent for the Republican nomination for president. Perry said that the country needs to end the Obama administration’s “onslaught of regulation,” and also warned that Mitt Romney would be no better in the White House.
Perry never mentioned fellow White House hopeful Mitt Romney by name, but he made clear he disagreed with the former Massachusetts governor’s policies.
“As Republican voters decide who is going to be best suited for this country and take it in a new direction by stopping the spending spree and the scrapping of ‘Obamacare,’ I’m confident we’re going to choose a nominee that governed with conservative principles,” Perry said. “Not one whose health care policies paved the way for ‘Obamacare.’ “
