    One of his pet projects, The Texas Enterprise Fund is particularly egregious.

    Nope, I am proposing that Rick Perry is not the man for the job, he is an empty suit with a nice haircut whose political ideology is flexible according to need, he comes across well on television sound bites but many in our state consider him an embarrassment. Presidential material he is not!

    I don't know anything about Gov. Perry other than what I see in the media. The only question I would have is if he is that bad, why is he the longest serving Gov. in the history of Texas? A lot of TX voters must see something they like and TX is a RED state, right? Just asking...

    You talking about Perry or Obama????

    Anyone know how many private sector jobs have been created in TX the last 2 years?

    How many in the rest of the USA combined?

    Perry is doing something right, and jobs and the economy are all that will matter in the upcoming election!!!

    I find your statement interesting - he must appeal to someone. I would have thought, as she apparently did, that KBH would have steamrolled him, only to have it happen in reverse.

    However, he signed into law probably the most anti-breeder legislation that has been presented to any governor in the country....fully backed by the AR movement.
