8 things you need to know about Texas Governor Rick Perry
Here at home, he has his detractors. But this is also Texas where we pretty much despise all politicians.
"Despise" isn't a severe enough word to describe how we feel about Obama, however.
The (thankfully deceased) communist-columnist Molly Ivins is the one who tagged the label "Governor Goodhair" on Perry and she was also responsible for painting a smear against the man that many so-called conservatives still believe to this day.
It's been said here in Texas that the pygmies in South America used to dip their spears in little jars of Molly Ivins' spit before they went hunting.
Texas Monthly, our unabashedly liberal unofficial state rag, did a recent piece that is well worth your reading titled Dear Yankee: Eight things you ought to know before you start writing stories about Rick Perry. You're welcome.
I pretty much refuse to even line a bird cage with the pages of Texas Monthly, but I found this article very interesting, straightforward and truthful.
Of all the candidates trying for the White House, only Perry and Ron Paul, two Texans, have military experience. Look for the mainstream media to conveniently ignore that.
However, 20 million of us veterans won't.
Again, here in Texas we don't really like politicians so don't be surprised when you hear Texans bitch about Perry. We bitched about Bush, we frothed at the mouth about Ma Richards, who incidentally vetoed concealed carry every single time it came across her desk. Bush signed it right out of the box.
Perry is not only strong on the Second Amendment, he practices it because he carries. Hell, everyone's heard the story about him shooting the coyote that threatened him and his dog out on a morning jog. Perry and his wife hunt--real hunting, not staged photo-ops the way bozos Kerry, Gore and Clinton tried to portray themselves.
I urge you to take five minutes and click on the link and read the article. There are some myths about the man, as well as how our state operates politically, that you'll find not only interesting, but enlightening.
Our goal is to send that Kenyan bastard and all his socialist appointees packing.
To do that, we have to put someone up who is not only electable, but who has a track record.
Romney presided over Massachusetts, an abysmal shithole of one failed liberal experiment after another. That's a crying shame for a once proud state that was a rock in the foundation of a fledgling nation over two centuries ago.
When it comes down to the nut-cutting, I'll take Rick Perry over Mitt Romney any day of any week of any month of any year.
Check out the article.
