Book by Texas Gov. Focuses on States' Rights

Monday, 01 Nov 2010 08:35 PM

DALLAS — Texas' governor has been caught off guard by excerpts released early from his new book that is highly critical of the federal government. Rick Perry says America has become the type of nation that the colonists fought against 200 years ago.

Although Perry has made similar comments on the campaign trail, the release caught his campaign staff by surprise. They were going to release the excerpts after Tuesday's election.

The excerpts temporarily appeared on his publisher's website Monday. Little, Brown and Co., did not immediately respond to a message left by The Associated Press.

Perry's Democratic rival, Bill White, told a crowd in Corpus Christi that Perry's book calls Social Security a "Ponzi scheme." The crowd booed.
