Yep, the Ruling Class RINO Candidate...
Notice the fawning presstitution he is getting already, sigh swoon.
No matter folks, our nominee will be the one who gets the REAL MESSAGE out to the people...Don’t think we have it yet, but it will be done. Has to or we lose the USA.
We need someone with a mean streak.
Yes, but who really cares what a Ho thinks?
Your pimp obviously failed to slap you enough.
I'll bet he doesn't even know when to capitalize when writing.
What a bonehead.
The formal powers of a governor are measured by using four factors: tenure of office, appointive/administrative powers, budgetary powers, and legislative powers.
The Texas governor has the strongest tenure of office in that he is elected to four-year terms and there are no term limits.
The Texas governors appointive powers are limited by the states plural executive structure, meaning that he or she cannot count on the loyalty, support, or cooperation of other members of the executive branch. Some of them may even belong to the opposition party. In Texas, the lieutenant governor, attorney general, comptroller of public accounts, state land commissioner, agricultural commissioner, Railroad Commission, and Texas State Board of Education are all elected by voters, not appointed by the governor.
Unlike most other state governors, the Texas governor has very restricted budgetary powers. In Texas, it is the Legislative Budget Board, dominated by the speaker and lieutenant governor that presents a budget to the legislature for approval. A Texas governors most significant budgetary power is the line-item veto power over the state budget bill. Because the legislature has often adjourned within days of the budget bill reaching the governors desk, they often have no opportunity to override the governors line-item veto.
In terms of legislative power, the Texas governors veto power is very strong because gubernatorial vetoes or item vetoes are rarely overridden because the legislature has already adjourned by the time that the governor exercises the veto. In Rick Perrys case, he has vetoed 273 bills since his first term in 2001. Hes not timid about his veto power. The governor also has the power to call additional special sessions of the legislature and is not limited to the number of special sessions he/she calls.
In comparison to other states: thirty other states governors were ranked as having more power than Texas chief executive, seventeen are ranked about equal, and three had even less power. In summary, Texas limits the governors power primarily in two areas, appointive and budgetary. The weakness in the appointive aspect is because in Texas, most of the other executives are elected, not appointed. And as noted above, the legislature has primary responsibility for drafting a budget. HERE is a link to a University of North Carolina chart which ranks the power of each states chief executive using 2007 conditions.
The low comparative ranking of the Texas governor is consistent with the traditionalistic and individualistic political culture of the state. In other words, it is intentional, not accidental. Judging by Texas success, perhaps some other states might want to consider reducing the power of their governors too?”

As a Texas native, I have some reservations about Perry, but would clearly support him over four more years of President Downgrade.
I’ll take a RINO over a marxist, American hating pos any day....if I have to.
I would love to see some one like that rise to the top but don't see any one on the horizon.
Who do you have in mind?
I'd love to get behind him/her.
He wont get nominated.”
Pretty certain, are ya?
ROFLMAO! (Like a hot knife through room temperature butter my FRiend.)
Well, when you put it like yet, yea, a Texas Governor sounds good. Damn good!
Rick Perry for POTUS
Nice. I had in mind Sam Cooke, though:
If you believe the WSJ, Hairy Perry's got it.
Did Perry say ‘Howdy’ before giving the UT salute?
Bingo! The economy and jobs are the top priorities of many Americans these days. All of the water cooler talk in my office lately is grumblings about their friends still looking for work, the increase in gas prices and food, and their tanking 401K’s. They want a demonstrated fighter and a leader when it comes to economic issues and we will get that with Perry. This is going to be the litmus test this election with independent swing voters so it’s a win/win for Perry as far as I’m concerned.
Evidently, this corporate RINO (Gore+Bush) has a miniscule but screeching loud fan club here.
Perry is a dynamic speaker. He really knows how to inspire a crowd.
