    The Governor is important only because of the fact that the legislature only meets every other year.

    As I've said before, the Lt. Governor has the real powers because of his ability to make key legislature chair and committee appointments.

    The dems already have enough votes in the Senate to block legislation and are only a couple of seats away from controlling the House.

    When you keep electing people like Perry, Barton, Patrick and far-right school boards (where are they going to get the money to buy those new books?), it may come sooner rather than later...

    Actually, the real power rests in the commissions, but that didn't stop Perry from using executive orders to lay down a few laws that were very hard to swallow, such as new taxes, giving Mexican trucks with bald tires and bad brakes the rights to endanger the lives of Texas citizens, and ordering schoolgirls to recieve vaccinations in which human testing had not been completed, and which was wisely shot down by the legislature. It is true that the Texas governor does not have that much power, but the power he does have has the ability to cause real damage, should the governor misuse it, as Perry has done.
