Definitely a right wing teabagger nut job, how could the people of Texas be so stupid to elect him? We have our own problems with Rick Scott another teabagger whack job. Tearing our state apart, one law at a time.

Texas is dominated by the Republican party, so we get the same quality leaders as the one-party systems in Cuba and China.

We have been dominated for the 12 years with republicans, yet they still blame everyone else for everything under the sun.I guess I'm preaching to the choir.

Yet we lead the nation in job creation, cost of living is one of the lowest, Perry and the republican legislature is working to bring the budget back under control. I guess you would rather have those type of idiots that are running California and the rest of the broke blue states that everyone is leaving? Get a clue!

If it was'nt for Bush and Perry, we'd be in the fix that California is in right now. Of course, we guess that is your preference?

Your problem is your don't even know what a Tea Party member happens to be! Perry was never a member and your statement is just another liberal fad word that you are clueless to it's meaing.

I apologize for the misunderstanding; I was not referring to the Tea Party. I was taliking about the Republican Party. My point is that because Texans blindly vote Republican, we consistently elect second-rate politicians like Perry and Cornyn who follow the party line on evry issue and never have an original thought. There are quite a few moderate Democrats in Texas, and voters should vote for the person, not the party.

But since you mentioned it, regardless of whether Perry is a member of any tea party organization, he has spoken at numerous tea party events events and has promoted tea party rallies on his own website:

Being a free American citizen, he has the right to speak where ever he wishes. It's in the constitution. You really don't know anything about the left when you discuss following party lines blindley, do you?

I never said Perry doesn't have the right to speak where he pleases. I am saying he's an empty suit who panders to the right and has never expressed an original thought (unless you count his comment that Texas should secede from the Union).

I don't agree with the far left any more than I like the far right. For example, I did not vote for my Republican Congressman, Pete Olsen, in 2010 because of his opposition to health care reform. But his Democratic opponent was a left-wing kook whom I could not in good conscience vote for. So I wrote in a name and voted against them both.

Wrong, on both counts they are second in both categories. We already had idiots from California and Texas as presidents, both brought the country nothing but financial ruin and deficits. Both Republican.
