    Conservatives believe government is the answer.

    That is why he will be a hit the the Christian fundmentalists.

    Dubya got his guidance from god also, and that didn't work out too well...
    Dubya got elected twice...so, it worked out ok

    Perry seems like a good christian, that supports both Mil, and LE. He will definitely appeal to a lot of voters from all sides.

    Worked out? Only in the partisan my team won kind of way. Otherwise, Shrub was a disaster.

    This is definitely another set of points against him. God is not what will get us out of this Recession, hard work in balancing our budget by decreasing unnecessary spending and increasing revenue together is what will do it.

    Right, except both the military and LE aren't going to be needed or worse, are going to be needed in a lot bigger numbers to keep the peace in and out of our country if we can't fix our financial situation. Perry is not a good person for this job. So far, most his answer to the financial problems of TX has been to borrow money and take money offered by the federal government (which won't work on a national level) while still refusing to actually change any part of the way TX works.

    Part of the biggest reason that we are in this federal financial situation is the borrowing of money that everyone, Repub and Dem and individual citizens, have been doing. Instead of actually figuring out ways to balance what we owe, what we need to pay for, and ensure that there is enough money to do both, we ignore the first one and just keep borrowing money because we can't agree on the best way to do either of the second two. Everyone wants a quick fix and to appease their supporters. What people don't understand is that our politicians, especially those who are trying to get into office, should be doing what is best for the country, which is the three things I already listed.

    Not sure this speaks well of him. Sad that anyone would think shrub clone would clone would be a good thing.

    But, while we're on this subject, allow me to add something I found earlier on perry:

    Rick Perry — king of corporate welfare


    The unfortunate fact is that Perry and Obama have a lot more in common than either would like to admit. They both think they’re smarter than the laws of economics and that they make wiser choices than markets do. And they both see taxpayer money as a giant trough for feeding their political pals. Perry is actually truthful about this, sort of. “I am a pro-business governor,” he told Time magazine last week. “I will be a pro-business president.” What he means is that he’s pro-certain-businesses, the ones run by his friends.

    As governor of Texas, Perry controls hundreds of millions of dollars in state handouts to corporations for “job creation and economic development.” Not surprisingly, it turns out that the funds are especially good at developing one particular sector of the Texas economy: Perry’s campaign funds.

    (snip)


    And Perry is not content to merely pick taxpayer pockets on behalf of his corporate friends; he’ll resort to strong-arm robbery when necessary. The biggest controversy of his decade in the governor’s mansion was an arrogant attempted land-grab called the Trans-Texas Corridor, a $185 billion system of super-highways for which the state would have had to acquire as much as a thousand square miles of territory.

    To deal with troublesome property owners who didn’t want to sell, Perry persuaded the legislature to pass a new form of eminent domain known as “quick-claim,” in which the state could have seized any land it wanted with just 90 days of notice, then “negotiate” the price later. The super-highway plan died in 2010 only because the federal government showed more concern for the rights of bugs and bunnies than Perry did for the property rights of his constituents, pulling the plug on its chunk of the budget out of environmental concerns.

    I'm for the death penalty, but that was bullcrap. He could have at least considered the evidence that the fire marshal was most likely wrong and the guy did not kill his children, but rather the fire was an accident. And then trying to cover it up? Completely juvenile and unprofessional.

    Looking this up though did give me an explanation on the SVU episode I watched about a year ago though.
