Interesting article over at Conservatives 4 Palin about Texas Governor Rick Perry. The author suggests Texas is doing OK because of the state legislature and how it has stopped Gov Rick Perry!
Huh? ... Well go read for yourself. Here is a tidbit from C4P citizen journalist Mark America:
"I’ve lived in Texas throughout the entirety of the Perry administration. He hasn’t been the most awful governor we might have had, but in truth, he’s been mediocre. It is true to say that Perry deserves a little credit for the better economic conditions in the state, insofar as he’s done no particular harm. On the other hand, it’s fair to say that part of the reason Perry’s done no particular harm, and perhaps the sole reason he hasn’t damaged the economy, is because the Texas people, through their legislature, won’t let him. The governor’s real shortcomings are not to be seen so much in the matter of economics, but in his unceasing drive to tamper with the freedoms and lives of Texans for the sake of his corporate cronies."
Hmm, so what I get out of this is Americans definitely need to FULLY examine Perry's COMPLETE record is DETAIL if he does run for potus. Mark also says:
"When you examine his record in its totality, what you find is not that Governor Perry has been such a capable steward of the Texas economy, but that surprisingly, the Texas Legislature has fulfilled that role, bouncing egregious Perry initiatives in a number of cases. The Trans Texas Corridor project would have crippled commerce in this state, and contrary to the billing, would have achieved little but to make Texas just another link in the NAFTA chain, bypassed by most of the commerce, its people tasked with the duty to pay for a system of toll roads from which they would see little benefit, but would bring substantial costs.
For these reasons, and a lengthy list of similar problems, I cannot recommend the governor of my state, Texas, to the people of America. It’s not so much that he’s presided over an economy of his creation, so much as the fact that the people of Texas have managed to succeed in spite of him. Given his embellished relation to the relatively good performance of the Texas economy in admittedly hard times, and acknowledging that the damage he might have done, had he been unopposed by a conservative legislature, it’s clear that while Rick Perry might be good for corporatist Washington, he’s not the right choice for America."
Excellent work, Mark... Keep it up! Read the rest
