I love to hear Rick Perry speak, I’m glad he has entered the race for the presidency, and I want to believe that Perry is that Conservative with a Capital C, as my friend G. M. Roper referred to him on Facebook. But what about signing the DREAM Act into law in Texas and what about the Trans Texas Corridor – the gigantic 6 -lane, 80 mile-an-hour highway, allowing trucks to pass the Texas-Mexico border without stopping, and travel all the way to Oklahoma or beyond? And what is up with the road being leased to a Spanish company for 50 years?
Some have even more questions. A Texas blogger has gone to great detail to discuss many issues surrounding Perry that you may not even know exist.
The article covers 17 questions being pondered around the blogosphere: the Gardisil controversy, serving as Al Gore’s campaign manager, education in Texas (lots of detail here), turning down stimulus funds, then asking for federal disaster aid for wildfires; raising taxes, presiding over a high number of executions and the execution of a high-profile Mexican; No. 15 on the list…is Perry “squishy on immigration?” The question of the Bilderberg conference attendance and violation of the Logan Act and how about Texas’ “abysmal rankings” on other lists, where they end up on the wrong end of the ranking?
While the Pesky Truth is giving an opinion, I believe you will be impressed with the even-handed way the information is presented. Read it all at Pesky Truth. You may agree or not. If you have time, come back here and let me know what you think in comments. Many thanks to Bookworm Room and Andrea Shea King, The Radio Patriot, who brought this analysis of Perry to my attention (visit Andrea’s blogtalk radio website).
