No, he's just got this list of about 280 "special friends" who each donate huge bucks to his campaign funds, and he listens to them almost exclusively.

Perry's only skill seems to be finding wealthy donors and running a well-oiled political machine. Just the sort of "old boy" crony network that rots politics to the core. Let's hope Texas gets somebody better to replace him. I haven't really followed Abbott's politics closely, but a new face will be a good thing in itself.

As for Perry's presidential ambitions, I guess the only good thing that can be said for that is that he's not Jeb Bush.

And they all want dirt-cheap wages and lots of Mexicans and Guatetecs flooding across the border so they can hire cheap with no bennies, no insurance, -- hell, no Social Security, cash only, totally off-the-books. Yeah, a free-market economy is a wonderful thing, if you can hire 100% illegals who can never say "no" or "I'd like a raise".

What do you expect from people for whom contentment is packing two families of ten into a tin roof shack? They're happy with that, and there are plenty around to milk it for what it's worth.

What you just described is unfortunately not limited to politicians like Rick Perry. We have many of them in Washington who, for a large donation, will sell us out just so businesses can obtain cheap illegal labor.
