Rick Perry isn’t going to have many speed bumps on his way to confirmation as America’s next Energy Secretary.

Perry also believes the federal Energy Department could go the way of the Dinosaur and America wouldn’t fall apart.

A guest opinion column at the Washington Times (written by one Republican and one Democrat) suggests Perry is the right man for the job.  He was viewed as a stellar proponent of energy development in his home state of Texas and across a wide variety of platforms without heavy use of public subsidies.  Perry also believes the federal Energy Department could go the way of the Dinosaur and America wouldn’t fall apart.

Look to Perry to develop a plan for energy expansion.  It was part of our Top Story discussion.  The energy talk begins about 6 minutes into the video.
