Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, looking tan and rested on MSNBC last night, offered his support to Texas Gov. Rick Perry — who suggested the Lone Star State could secede over the Obama administration’s tax policies.

Gov. Rick Perry today joined state Rep. Brandon Creighton and sponsors of House Concurrent Resolution (HCR) 50 in support of states’ rights under the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

I believe that returning to the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution and its essential 10th Amendment will free our state from undue regulations, and ultimately strengthen our Union.”
