    Excellent point and exactly the thoughts here

    "Texas would have balanced its budget regardless of the presence of stimulus dollars," said Lucy Nashed, Perry's deputy press secretary. "This money came from the pockets of Texas taxpayers, and we are committed to getting our fair share of these dollars, which would have otherwise been disbursed to other states."

    So you're against the stimulus only until you can get some money out of it. I guess being conservative is the same as being hypocritical which means you whine and cry about something in name only but your actions are in support of it.

    I was indeed against the stimulus but it passed. TX taxpayer money was being used to distribute throughout the country so YES, I would take the money as would you. You don't seem to understand that there is nothing TX could do to prevent the stimulus from passing but since it passed, why shouldn't TX taxpayers get some of their money back?

    At least you know you're a hypocrite. Just 11 more steps to go.

    hyp·o·crite
    noun
    1. a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs.
    2. a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, especially one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements.

    Actually, sounds a lot like a liberal, someone who claims to have compassion and cares about someone else but only cares about retaining power and keeping their job.

    So, you don't deny being a hypocrite?

    Personally I don't care that Texas took the federal money. The problem is that Perry took it, used it to create jobs and to fill his deficit hole, and then claimed that the stimulus didn't do anyone any good. That's the hypocrisy.
