    California had the 8th largest economy and TX the 11th. TX is required to balance the budget whereas California isn't thus California has billions in long term debt. I don't think that is something to trumpet

    Perry should have called for an indictment of the DA.

    The point is that coercion of public officials is not a crime. It's the job of other public officials.

    so perry tried to use the threat of denying funding to the public integrity department that the district attorney was in charge of in order to get her to step down.

    That's why we elect governors.

    Perry could have denied funding to the " public integrity " ( Conservative Gotcha Committee ) department long before this partisan drunk got popped for driving with a blood alcohol level 3 times the legal limit.

    He's allowed under the State Constitution to do just that, but didn't until this DA embarrassed herself.

    If your looking for Governor that defunded the public integrity department for nefarious reasons, look no further than New York. Personally, I think it's hilarious.

    It's just one more indication of how corrupt the Liberal ideology AND the Democrat party are.

    Why not?
    It seems like exactly the thing he could and should do as Governor to insure the integrity of that State Office.

    There is a reason that we have created the most jobs, have the largest population growth, attracting Fortune 500 companies and I assure you it wasn't liberalism
    Liberal arrogance won't let blue states do what? The most arrogant people I've ever known in my life were all conservative republicans. Republicans won't let liberals better this nation (better known as the Party of No), and in fact are entirely responsible for the economic meltdown known as the Great Recession. Obstructionists is what you folks in the Republican Party are known as. You dodged my question posed earlier. What were the specific polices that Republicans put forth to make Texas an economic success? I already told you that it wasn't lowering taxes or the cost of living, since Texas Republicans sent property taxes through the roof. And I don't know what you mean by personal responsibility, unless you are saying that you can only benefit from things if you already have money.

    Like I said before. You don't know what you are talking about.
