I have been gone from TX for almost 8 years, so I have not been paying as much attention to TX politics. When Perry jumped into the race I started talking to my TX conservative friends. Most dislike and don’t trust Perry. I think that’s instructive. But when I say anything against him I get roundly booed and called all sorts of things around here. It’s unfortunate that people don’t want to vet the candidates now while we can. They just like his pretty face and tough words. Yeah, he’s a good looking guy and *I* like what he’s saying. But he has a record, it’s easy enough to look at.
All I hear is, “look at the polls!” “He can beat Obama!”
And the Perrista's just hate that, his actual record. Gives them much much heartburn. The evidence of that is in plain view all around here. They are jumping through all kinds of hoops around here trying to divert peoples attention away from that fact. You ask a Perrista a reasonable question about Perrys record or past actions and all they want to do is give you his campaign reworked all NEW resume or campaign talking points. Just keep digging, his record is there for all to see, people are starting to see for themselves.
