The conservative blogger in Georgia side-eyes the liberal commentator's comments about poverty: "In public and in front of crowds, people like Perry will drone on about how we need to do something to help all the poor people in this country and how some people just do not care for them. But in private, many of these people in the Theater of Perpetual Willing Ignorance will readily admit to you what I am about to tell you: Not all poor people want to be helped."
He continues his commentary: "While Perry can rant on about the need of a safety net (something that this country has had for years which is why people from other countries who want to better themselves come here), she and others like her will say NOTHING about the demographic of people who view America’s safety net as a permanent home. They avoid at all cost the basic question 'How do you make someone WANT to better themselves'. Why? Because you can’t give an individual a desire to improve. So Perry and others who have the good sense of pushing themselves ahead will project that image on all of those they consider 'poor' to avoid the question. While I am a firm believer in helping people out who need it, I also believe in making sure they are using those resources to move ahead. If they choose (that’s the key word here) not to move ahead, they need to be booted so that others who do want to move ahead can take advantage of the opportunity."
