    As happened with Ron Paul, who is also a career politician him self, it some folks think that this man would be a good option or better option to Obama. Do some homework. The man was and still is a lib. He is not good fop Texas and the only reason he is still in office is because he only has to run against the likes of bill white.

    Grassroots defeat GOLIATH: Stop the sale of TX roads to foreign corporations, protect public pension funds
    Written by Terri Hall

    IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    (Austin, TX – July 2, 2009) Today, ordinary Texans brought Governor Rick Perry’s road privatization, toll road, and Trans Texas Corridor agenda to a screeching halt. The Legislature adjourned without re-authorizing private toll road contracts called Comprehensive Development Agreements (or CDAs). The grassroots scored another victory by KILLING the revolving fund in HB 1, preventing the $2 billion in bonds from being spent to build toll roads, convert freeways to toll roads, or subsidize private toll deals, as well as protecting public employee pension funds from risky toll roads schemes that are failing all over the world.

    “It is a hard-fought victory for the grassroots. We killed Goliath, not just Perry’s controversial toll road policies, but we defeated a sold out Senate and the BIG MONEY, the lobbyists, who sank millions into pushing for the sale of Texas highways,” Hank Gilbert, Texas TURF Board member and President of Piney Woods Subregional Planning Commission.

    “We applaud Rep. David Leibowitz, once again, for standing up for Texas taxpayers and leading the charge to fix the bill that created a revolving fund that would have raided teacher retirement and public employee pension funds for risky toll road schemes. He authored the bill to KILL the Trans Texas Corridor and another to prevent the conversion of freeways to tollways during the regular session. He’s a proven taxpayer hero and Texans owe him a tremendous debt of gratitude,” said TURF Founder, Terri Hall.

    No one. It's a straw man by the narco-libertarians to discredit Perry, who will win the nomination and the election hands down.
    Perry is very inspiring.

    Texas is a "right to work" state and 48% of all jobs in America were created there since 2009. I don't expect any candidate to be perfect and am happy this governor of Texas wants a prosperous state and happy families with jobs. *****

    "In fact since becoming a buzzworthy could-be candidate, Perry's only major interview was with Fox News' Neil Cavuto, who's not exactly Woodward or Bernstein. "Methinks they think you're the guy," Cavuto mused Tuesday when Perry came on the show. For the most part, Cavuto let Perry extoll the virtues of the "Texas model"—low taxes and pro-business approaches. When Cavuto asked how Perry had lured Carl's Jr. restaurants to Texas, the governor flashed a trademark smile. "They love the smell of freedom," he explained. Public policy via olfaction! Perry even got in a couple plugs for his book, Fed Up! before heading over to Glenn Beck's stage for an ostensibly unscripted moment. "How many jobs did you create?" Beck asked as he finished drawing a chalk portrait of Perry. "Since June 2009, about 48 percent of all the jobs created in America were in Texas," Perry responded—before walking off set.

    Really ? Straw man are phoneys. I am real. A citizen of Texas since 1979. Perry is bad news. He has a skeleton for just about every issue in his closet, and is as good a friend to Mexico and illegals as Obama. I want Perry to hurry up and get in. As it stands, he is waiting till crunch time so the press wont have enough time to dig up all the dirt they can on him. Like how much money he has made in his record time mooching off the state. I will post up some of my favorites.

    Looks as if you are an educated voter. I would say (just a guess) that you are NOT a straight ticket voter, and that you pay attention to the reptiles when they speak right ? Good for you. If only the rest of the country would do that.

    Rick Perry Has Concerns over Arizona Immigration Bill

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who often makes national headlines for his strong conservative views and flashy style, is the latest Republican to come out against Arizona's controversial new immigration law.

    "I fully recognize and support a state's right and obligation to protect its citizens, but I have concerns with portions of the law passed in Arizona and believe it would not be the right direction for Texas," Perry said in a statement.

    The law in question, signed by Arizona's governor last week, would require immigrants to carry documents verifying their immigration status. It would also require police officers to question a person about his or her immigration status if there is "reasonable suspicion" that person may be illegally in the country.

    While some local lawmakers across the country are condemning the law and moving to boycott business with Arizona, others are praising it and calling for similar laws in their own states. There are some state representatives in Texas who say their state should adopt a strict immigration measure like Arizona's.

    Perry's HPV vaccine order draws backlash from GOP
    Some lawmakers receiving angry messages about mandate requiring vaccinations for girls.
    By Corrie MacLaggan

    Key lawmakers from Gov. Rick Perry's own Republican Party on Monday called on him to rescind his executive order making Texas the first state to require sixth-grade girls to be vaccinated against a sexually transmitted virus that causes cervical cancer.

    "The public has a right to testify on this issue, and the Legislature has a constitutional duty to be involved in this decision," said state Sen. Jane Nelson of Lewisville, chairwoman of the Senate Health and Human Services Committee.

    At the Capitol on Monday, opposition grew against the governor's order Friday to require the human papilloma- virus vaccine for girls starting in September 2008. Lawmakers who said their offices were inundated with angry calls and e-mails from constituents over the weekend rushed to file bills that would override the governor's order, which they said revokes parental rights and could encourage young girls to be promiscuous. The governor, however, stood firm.

    (AP) DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Key advisers to Texas Gov. Rick Perry are beginning to lay the groundwork for a campaign for Iowa's leadoff GOP presidential caucuses by making inquiries about the process in case the Republican seeks the 2012 nomination.

    But they caution that their preliminary planning does not indicate that the Republican has decided whether to run.

    Perry's chief consultant Dave Carney acknowledged in an interview with The Associated Press that he was asking questions about the political landscape, the caucus process and rules for the August Republican straw poll in Iowa.
