    Governor says Obama leaving Texas in the dust

    Gov. Perry took $6 billion stimulus money from the Feds to balance his budget, now he wants more to fight the wildfires in Texas.



    SAN ANTONIO Texas Governor Rick Perry criticized the Obama administration on Thursday for not responding to a request for a disaster aid for the parched state, where wildfires have scorched nearly 2 million acres.

    "You have to ask, 'Why are you taking care of Alabama and other states?' I know our letter didn't get lost in the mail," Perry, a Republican and frequent critic of the federal government, said after addressing a Texas emergency management conference.

    President Barack Obama declared a state of emergency for Alabama, where storms including a tornado that ravaged Tuscaloosa on Wednesday killed nearly 200 people this week.

    Governor Rick Perry has good reason to be pissed off. If these fires were New England there would be just about nothing left standing.

    Most people have no concept of the devistation underway in Texas or the cost involved.

    Governor Rick Perry asked for help and they just said, way too late: We're thinking about it.

    Had Gov. Perry been a Democrat or he was a Muslim help would have come within a few hours.

    Yeah we had heavy smoke from the one out in Junction, over 60 MILES away blowing over us, it was horrible.

    I'm still waiting for the EPA to try and claim "Texas has bad air" because of these fires and try to fine the state.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Ah the smell of hypocracy (and charred homes and wood)

    "WE DONT NEED NO BIG DADDY GUBMINT!".

    "SAVE US BIG GUBMINT!".

    Oh yeah of course Ric and Councilman play the "If it were a muslim bull****"

    Which has about as much basis in reality as me getting to sleep with Jessica Alba.

    No such thing was said. That's a complete fabrication.

    Governer Perry said no such thing. That's what you were implying. A member of this forum made the remark... which I happen to agree with. But Governer Perry did not make that statement.

    So what you're basically telling me is you're bored and want to screw around with me on purpose.

    There is no concievable way the statement you quoted (had you read the other replies as well by the way) implied that I implied the governor said that.

    You said Coucilman 'and Ric' in your reply. I was responding to the 'Ric' part, which was a mistake on your part.
