Actually, in the second case, he would be issuing an executive order for existing law to be upheld.

    Like I said, Perry turned a blind eye to it, but he had no incentive to do anything about it, since money wouldn't be flowing into his pockets as a result.

Doesn't look promising, though. If Perry wins, I will be voting for White in the primary, which will be the first time in my life I have ever voted for a Democrat. That is how much I despise Perry. During his term in office, he has raised taxes on cigarettes by executive order, and also, by executive order, made it law that girls all get a vaccine that had not even been tested on humans, after getting a huge donation from the pharmaceutical company that manufactures it.

    Perry is one of the crookedest governors Texas has ever had, so crooked that I miss Governor Bush, who was actually a pretty good governor here. Many will remember Bush for the terrible job he did as president. I prefer to remember him for the decent job he did as governor of Texas. I just wish he hadn't gotten sidetracked by those crazy people, after he won in 2000. If he hadn't, I think he would have been a pretty good president.

    At any rate, Perry's got to go, and I am ready to cast my first vote for a Democrat in my entire lifetime, in order to help show him the door.

    On the Democratic side, Bill White is opening up a can of whoopass on Faroukh Shami. Nothing to see here. Move along, folks. LOL.
    Great idea! Vote out a fiscal conservative [sort of] in favor of an idiotic Dem who doesn't have a clue why Texas' economy is the best in the nation right now. Much as you may not like what some of what Perry has done [and it did suck, particularly the vaccine idiocy], voting against him is just plain stupid.

    Conservative fiscal policies is the reason Texas has replaced California as the state of choice for corporate domiciles and headquarters. It's why more F500 companies are moving here versus any other state. It's why our housing market hasn't gone quite as far to hell as many other states.

    Ignoring all that because of 2 comparatively minor issues is just stupid.

    Not that I give a damn about Perry, nor do I think vaccinations are anything but good, but his order did contain provisions for students to opt out of the vaccinations for certain reasons.

    PolitiFact | Perry says the HPV vaccine he mandated would have been optional
