    Let's check him out a bit.......

    Once-moderate Perry now inflames Latinos - USATODAY.com

    Texas Budget Crisis | What California should learn from the Texas budget crisis - Los Angeles Times

    During Budget Crisis, Texas House Committee Passes Tax Break For Yacht Owners | Truthout

    Amid $27 Billion Budget Crisis, Texas GOP Passes Tax Break For Yacht Owners

    So Perry has flip-flopped on illegals in a state that wants to give tax breaks to yacht owners at the expense of educating the kids.

    Anyone who says that the Dems create "class warfare" ought to look really hard at what's going on in Texas. How would you like being told your property taxes will skyrocket so the rich can get tax breaks on their yachts?


    Sorry.....that's just plain bullshit.

    Perry for POTUS? Don't make me laugh. :lol:

    When I first started looking at Perry, I though he was a shoo-in for the nomination if not the General Election win. The more I learn, the more I think he may have a fight on his hands to get the nom.

    Wish Huntsman would run. Oh wait, he is.

    Wonder if our so-called Liberal Media™ will ever talk about Perry Pompadour's porn holdings.

    I'm not a Perry fan by any stretch of the imagination but I can show you just how shortsighted/perverted the media is.

    The article about yachts... it made perfect sense to give the tax break. Florida gives the same tax break and was stealing business from Texas. It makes a lot more sense to give the tax break on the yacht and have it built there with all of the businesses that the yacht brings/keeps in the state. Its not just the Yachts, its all of the other things in the industry. You have to house the boat, clean the boat, service the boat not to mention a lot of people eat out a lot (my dad owns a large boat, don't know if its a yacht or not) and spend a ton of money on the local economy because you just can't do all on a yacht that you would do as a land dweller. I don't like perry and won't vote for him but that, at least, made sense.

    Perry is a religious nut who makes used car salesmen look good.
