No problem, goofball. Texas has 8 billion surplus projected for 2014 with half that being added to the rainy day fund. You bozo's can keep nobama and the change! LMAO
If Texas were to leave the union and reclaim the title " Republic of Texas" I will immigrate there and ask for political assylum.

LOL...quite an elevated opinion of yourself, eh? As I've noted, I don't pay that much attention to rightie posters, especially claims they make about themselves. For all I know you're a housewife, a schoolkid, or a janitor.:)

It isn't an opinion, it's fact. There you go again deflecting.

Texas Governor Rick Perry , is a good man
Rick Perry, huh? Good at what? Forgetting cabinet agencies he would like to shut down (oops!)? Referring to Turkey as our enemy? Speaking while clearly intoxicated? Or maybe thinking that Woodrow Wilson was our president 10 years ago?

Maybe Rick Perry is a nice guy, but he's certainly not qualified to wield influence over other people's lives.

did you ever see the pic of Perry at age 22, posing on the wing of his jet fighter, in full gear, doing a mans job, and a pic of obama at age 22, lounging around in his muslim garb, toking on a doobie?

Very impressive.

If you mean your President, Mr. Obama, he's about ten times as bright as that idiot Perry. If you weren't a lackwit, you'd KNOW that.

I trust people who smoked dope more than would-be fighter jocks. Of course Mr. Obama has never been a Muslim, any more than Perry's ever been smart. But it's appearance that counts, isn't it Georgia?:)

Both looked impressive. One of them turned out to actually be impressive. And it weren't the guy posing on the wing.

By your standards, maybe John Wayne should have been president. He was a great poser. Then again, so was Dubya.

Also, I've been meaning to ask you - Do you believe people have to be "MEN!!" to do a proper job? Do you believe a woman would be inadequate as a U.S. president simply based on her gender?
I ask you these questions because you have implied on numerous occasions that you believe a "macho" exterior equates to inner strength, and that women belong in the kitchen. I don't mean to put words in your mouth (that would be very unsanitary), but I am interested in your views on these matters.

Ain't it the truth! Perry barely made it through school with very poor grades.

Now he seems intent on bring other Texans, especially our school kids, down to his dumbo level.

Of course, any state with voter that would re-elect Rick Perry are already proving Texams aren't very smart.

As a wise REPUBLICAN judge said,

Judge Richard Posner

“My theme is the intellectual decline of conservatism, and it is notable that the policies of the new conservatism are powered largely by emotion and religion and have for the most part weak intellectual groundings. That the policies are weak in conception, have largely failed in execution, and are political flops is therefore unsurprising …

By the fall of 2008, the face of the Republican Party had become Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber. Conservative intellectuals had no party.”

And Rick Perry.

Good one(s). But actually I was being serious. I believe, despite our enormous ideological differences, there is a kind of odd mutual respect between us. But I do find you a bit puzzling, especially since we both seem to appreciate a good chortle. I am interested in your views on the issues I mentioned because I want to understand you a little better.
