(CNN)- Texas Gov. Rick Perry is demanding an apology from a California newspaper that published a cartoon that seemed to link his push for less regulations to the recent fertilizer plant explosion that killed 14.

He'll never get it.

The progressives have mastered the art of terrorism by personal attack. They make some outlandish claim, rumor, or flat out nasty lie and then run away. Once it's aired their low-intelligence voting base just believes it without actually looking into the truth and TA-DA!! Instant reputation destruction without a shred of truth to back it up. Modern day terrorists.

Look at what they did with Herman Cain. They slaughtered his presidential bid by hauling out a laundry list of sordid stories and faces of women he abused, but they all suddenly disappeared when their stories started to be proven completely false.

Look at the left's attack on the Tea Party. They forever will claim the ranks of the Tea Party are filled with racist radicals, yet they've not ONCE been able to offer a single incident of racism or violence from the Tea Party.

To make matters worse, because the media is so biased they simply ignore the deceitful liberal game when the truth comes out and it turns out to be a lie, therefore there's no consequences for the left's lie and hide tactics. They'll just keep doing it because it's worked.

DHS requires that any company that has more than 2,000 lbs of fertilizer-grade ammonium nitrate to report it. This company in Texas had 540,000 lbs and there is no record that they reported it to DHS.

Meanwhile Perry is hopping from state to state trying to get companies to relocate to Texas, using less regulations as a sales ploy. I guess Perry believes that storing 540,000 lbs of explosive material 1,000 feet from a school is good for Texas business.

I don't agree with a cartoon making light of this situation but Perry's outrage is directed in the wrong direction. Instead of being mad at a cartoon shouldn't he be fuming at those responsible? Heads need to roll.

Ohhh, the outrage. "Heads need to roll!!!" Someone is making a profit.

Meanwhile Americans can be slaughtered in Benghazi and it's deemed "faux outrage" to even ask for answers to why.

LOL ... classless, stupid and hypocritical. That's all the left is at this point.

Are you absolutely sure they didn't report it? I read somewhere that DHS knew it was there. As for Perry, he believes that regulations are killing business all over the US and he's right.

Kelpo, Kelpo, Kelpo, grab a notepad and take this down....Republican/hard work......Democrat/handout. I've met some misguided Dems though and subtly tried to work on them, but I found that most of them are like you and I could only stand them for about 5 minutes.

Heads need to roll because 12 people died because of a company not following the rules, not because of someone making a profit. Try and follow along.

We're all quite aware of you progresso hypocrites' selective outrage when it comes to people dying, so spare us the sanctimonious concern for rules.

And good luck with your latest "heads will roll" play act. Maybe try another hilarious cuss-festooned rant, stevie ... after all, you are the Topix cartoon.

actually they are required to report storage of 400 lbs or more of this chemical. West Fertilizer failed to report & therefore violated laws. Heads will roll @ West ...

And that's a surprise? Seems there's a lot of things they don't know and can't keep track of lately. Pfft...the report is probably buried on someone's desk someplace over there...or misfiled more likely.

More faux outrage? I notice you still haven't managed to find any outrage over hundreds of slaughtered babies, not to mention of few of his patients. http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/local/Gos... Just can't bring yourself to drum up some of that faux outrage over one of your own, can ya? So where's the outrage over THESE dead children, not to mention the fact that several governemnt agencies looked the other way while it was happening even after receiving multiple reports.
Hypocrite.
