    INTEGRITY ......NOT! She should have resigned
    It had nothing to do with her. It was the Gov.'s actions because she did not resign. How is veto-ing funding to an entire agency/department solve her as a problem?

    There will be no trial. That would kill his 2016. He will cop a plea down and blame the Democrats.

    An even larger contingent of right-wingers are ready and willing to excuse whatever happens with Perry.
    As we've seen with Bundy and now Missouri .

    I know, damn us right wingers for presuming someone innocent pre trial. You've altered my view point, totally though. Perry's guilty. So when should we hang him? Tonight? After the weekend? Do have a length of rope handy because I don't.

    What an absurd comment.

    He has no chance in 2016. That was true long before this. He's not so good on the national stage.

    At least now we probably we wont have to hear from him in 2016. One less joke tier candidate to crowd our primaries can only be a good thing.

    BTW, Nim, sarcasm aside, I'm sure you're correct . This thread will divide pretty much right down the ideological line.
