    Say what you want about Perry, but the TX economy has been booming for years under him and about the only most other pols do is fuck it up.

    All this because he demanded this drunk to step down from her position:

    Certainly no other Texas politician has ever been a drunk before her :)

    But seriously, I think Perry's problem will be the trying to "bribe" her to leave once she wouldn't go and he was vetoing the budget for her office. That's the clip I just saw from the special prosecutor anyway. We shall see.

    I dont care for the guy but these charges seem a little silly. He withheld funding to force a convicted dwi DA to step down....hell at least win in the court of public opinion imo

    An old argument, but Perry has less to do with Texas' economy and more to do with companies moving to Texas cause of the right to work laws and the fact that texans will work for 2/3rds of what other will work for. That does not translate to national office.

    Evidently there are laws and procedures in place for someone who is a DA and is accused of crime. A governor can not threaten them to do what he wants or he takes the funding for the public office away.
    This was taken to a grand jury. So you really should say, "Citizens....:rolleyes:"

    Perry just stole another car company away from us here in SoCal. Employees who agree to make the move to Texas are getting an entire year's salary as a bonus and a sweetheart deal on a home loan when they arrive. I don't know if that qualifies as a big deal in Tejas, but it's sure gonna hurt on this end.

    And the natural resources in Texas as well, is that correct?

    I don't they think indict governors if they expect to lose.

    If you're a partisan of the opposing party, then you might be willing to indict on a weak charge for no other reason than to disrupt the governor's ability to perform his duties.

    It was a tactic they used with great effect against Tom DeLay.

    True but Perry is leaving in January. Not really a blow to anything he wants to do in the next couple of months, especially if he just rolls along and basically publicly ignores it.
