    He's the Governor of a State that leads the Nation in job creation.

    And thats jobs accross ALL income levels.

    Not even Obama can figure out how to run a economy.

    Whats that make him ?

    Moderator's Warning:
    Gov. Rick Perry indicted for abuse of power for carrying out threat [W:613/629]This thread is about Rick Perry. If you're not going to discuss the topic at hand, you will be gigged, kicked out of the thread or both. Stick to the topic.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    You liberals have some credibility issues. Especially when it comes to calling Conservatives ( or ANYONE for that matter ) stupid.

    The insult of " Stupidity " loses its effectiveness just a bit when it comes from the same people that equated empty plattitudes and bumper sticker slogans to Presidential qualifications in 2008 and 2012.

    I mean you people put down Bush for 8 years for his alleged lack of intelligence, and then you elect a guy based on media propaganda and nothing else.

    You declare to the world how easilly manipulated you are, how gullible you are and then you have the nerve to criticize someone else's intelligence

    You get what I'm saying.

    People like you insults Perry's intelligence and then go off and elect someone like Jerry Brown, or Andrew Cuomo, or Sheila Jackson Lee.

    Its hilarious !

    The DA honorably did her time in jail, next it will be time for Perry to do his.
    So it was state money that was vetoed? thanks for proving my point. The justification for the veto although none is needed was the actions of the D.A. that controls that money when it is released.

    Aw, yes, the double standards, Perry is guilty because he didn't violate his authority as governor. You just don't seem to get it. Wish I could type slower for you. The governor of this state or any other doesn't need a reason to veto legislation and can do it for any reason. You really should take a civics class. The vetoing of a piece of legislation can be overridden by the Legislature.

    Of course she was under no legal obligation to resign nor what Perry under any legal obligation to not veto the legislation. That is the bottom line which you don't seem to be able to comprehend.

    It's not the Governor's job to force the DA to resign. If you are so concerned, start a recall petition to have her removed from office! Of course the only reason you give a damn is because you are defending a fellow republican.

    Perry has had years to defund that extremely Partisan organization that has a history of wasting tax payers funds on Political witch hunts against Conservatives.

    But he didn't.
    Right, he waited for this opportunity and if he could control his big mouth, he might have gotten away with this partisan BS the republicans are famous for.

    It is the Governor's responsibility to be prudent with taxpayer money and he didn't want to release taxpayer money to an irresponsible DA to spend it. He didn't force her to resign he cut off part of her budget which is well within his authority to do. You seem to have a comprehension problem and want to make this totally personal. Perry didn't violate any state law and will be fully acquitted. No court is going to take that state Constitutional authority away from any governor. That is for the people of the state to do

    As usual with you it's BS! The only funding Perry shut off was money used to investigate corruption. It looks like Perry was attempting to cover his own ass, something Nixon taught you republicans well.
