Well, that's one fewer GOP candidate for 2016.
If this merits an indictment, Obama's blatant disregard for our
Constitution and the separation of powers should at the very least merit
impeachment. Be careful what you wish for Liberals; you may end up with
something you don't like.
@svenKeep bring iup impeachment, every time you do it just helps
". . .[Perry] broke the law when he promised publicly to nix $7.5 million
over two years for the public integrity unit . . . "Hmmmm . . .
So we've got another Republican in high office, who is not supportive of
"public integrity." No surprise there.What does a
"public integrity unit" do anyway? Would it help prevent a State's
Attorney General, for example, from treating his constituents like chumps ripe
for exploitation?This is Rick Perry we're talking about here.
Couldn't he just claim ignorance? Recent Republican Governors from the
state of Texas are noted for not having much upstairs. And that makes them
beloved in the Republican Party.All he needs is a few Right-leaning
Republican jurists (they can't be that hard to find in Texas) to hear his
case, and he will walk . . . No problem.Perry shouldn't sweat
it. He could explain away all this indictment nonsense by claiming that
Democrats were just picking on him. The sympathy vote might even get him the GOP
nomination for President.
Just call it a phony scandal! It works for our President!
Hmm?Stimulus package? Obamacare? Solyndra? Releasing terrorists?
Guns to Mexican cartels? Not protecting the borders?Now! What did
@worf Hmmm?Divert attention, flirt conspercy theories
and attempt slight of hand.Is there a reason you are tring to divert
attention away from the subject (perry) of the article?
Whether a result of Perry or the state legislature Texas is certainly an example
of what should be done to improve this nations economy. Looks like he stumbled
on this one pretty bad.
So, let me see if I understand the liberal mindset here. On one hand Liberals
want us to be outraged and demand justice when it comes to folks like Gov. Rick
Perry and Utah Attorneys General Swallow and Shertleff for their scandals, but
ask us to completely ignore and discount the multiple scandals of President
Obama. Really? Do you folks on the Left see a problem here? Of course you
don’t.Let me remind you of Obama's numerous scandals,
which make the issues with Perry, Swallow and Shertleff pale in Comparison:* IRS Scandal* NSA Scandal* Fast and Furious* Benghazi
(Actually 3 scandals)* Refusing to pursue voter intimidation case against
Black Panthers* Solyndra (That's just one company in Obama's
"Green" crony capitalism)* VA Scandal* Failure to recognize
the separation of powers and acting like a third world thug totalitarianIt really is amusing watching the Obama supporters getting worked up
into lather about Perry, Swallow and Sherleff, but excuse or downplay the
lawlessness of Obama and the Nations AG, Eric Holder.People are
paying attention. Please, keep it up; you're only showing your hypocrisy
and double standards, and putting more of a spotlight on our lawless President.
Is he able to name the three branches of government today? Please. This guy
needs assistance tying his shoes. In closing. Eyeglasses do not equal I.Q.
To all neo-con intellectuals. Please continue with the impeachment rhetoric. All
liberals thank you. Especially in 2016!
@svenI will tell you what sven you get enough evidance to get a
grand jury to indict Obama (as Perry has been) on any of your conserecy theories
and we can talk about being outraged.
If he made the threat publicly it indicates he has nothing to hide. I think
that it is a non-scandal."If you are hiding something, it means, you
have something to hide."Having said that, the people who
indicted him did the Republicans a big favor. They probably didn't want
to, but that is what has happened.
Hey Worf -"Stimulus package? Obamacare? Solyndra? Releasing
terrorists? Guns to Mexican cartels? Not protecting the borders . . . "Yep . . . A whole bunch of bogus criticisms dreamed up by Republicans
that really only serve to highlight the Republican propensity for whining.And none of it has anything to do with Perry's problems with
indictments.It's just too bad that Perry saw fit to shut down
the state's integrity unit.Maybe he thought they were getting
too close to finding out things he would prefer to keep secret.
@GaryO,Justice begins at the top. You don't pick and choice
when someone gets indicted.@intervention,You don't
make sense!What does conspiracy have to do with:* IRS
Scandal* NSA Scandal* Fast and Furious--people killed by Americans
guns * Benghazi (Actually 3 scandals)* Refusing to pursue voter
intimidation case against Black Panthers* Solyndra (That's just one
company in Obama's "Green" crony capitalism)* VA Scandal* Failure to recognize the separation of powers and acting like a third world
Compare and contrast the well being of the USA to Texas. Obama vs Perry. A twelve billion dollar surplus compared to a debt increase of seven
trillion.Without Texas (the fifth largest economy in the world),
this country sinks. Period!Like they did with Romney, only the
fools would believe the lies stemming from the liberals.
@Worf...Quite entertaining the fact of you telling another that they do not make
any sense! As usual I notice your comments and post lack something extremely
crucial my dear confused Texas friend...Facts! Another day. Another rant with
regurgitated Faux News rhetoric via D.N. posts.
GaryO-May I please refer you to an article on 4/24/14 titled
"Perry's aide offered Lehmberg a job for resignation" on the
"My San Antonio" website.Some highlights:Perry offered
her a job within the DA's office but in an unelected position.He would appoint First Assistant John Neal (a Democrat) to replace her. He would reinstate funding if those things were done and he was not
trying to shut down the office. He wanted her removed from her job because of
the DWI and using her position to threaten the arresting officers. Please, also watch the video of her being arrested. The issue is not just
about her DWI, but one should expect the District Attorney to be a law-abiding
citizen while holding office.
@Worf...This country sinks without Texas does it? You are referring to the State
that still prints educational text books with man riding a top dinosaurs,
correct? (Apparently The D.N. cannot even believe this fact since they continue
denying this extremely factual comment!) Continue telling yourself whatever is
needed in order to get through another day my friend. Give me California and or
the East Coast any day!
