Griffin Perry, Son Of Rick Perry, Mocks Rick Santorum's Sweater Vests On Twitter

Commented Jan 7, 2012 at 06:53:29 in Politics

“Good grief, is the entire Perry FAMILY always this arrogant?

As a citizen of Texas, I can confirm that many conservative Texans do NOT want Perry as President. He deliberately defunded our highway system and tried to ram his TransTexas Corridor and toll road agenda down the throats of Texas taxpayers. It represented multiple taxation on roadways we had already paid for with our vehicle related taxes and fees, but the funds had been misused and diverted. The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) was responsible for a vast majority of these problems and bears notoriety for its infamous 1.1 BILLION dollar accounting error several years ago. Incompetence, mismanagement, arrogance, and criminal conduct has reigned within that organization, all at the direction of Perry, and he continues to appoint cronies there who will do his bidding. (http://texasturf.org) People who have not lived in Texas are generally oblivious to this fact, and because no one is confronting Perry with this in the debates and/or in the media, he is getting away with not having to address this topic which is quite a controversial "hot button" with those Texans who are not in Perry's hip pocket. He has managed to stay in office as long as he has in Texas, ONLY because conservatives were terrified of letting another Democrat get in, and he was considered the "lesser of two evils."”

Late Returns: For Perry, There's An Upside In Going Birther

“Many conservative Texans do NOT support Rick Perry. He lost my vote when he defunded our highway system and tried to ram his TransTexas Corridor and toll road agenda down the throats of Texas taxpayers. It represented multiple taxation on roadways we had already paid for with our vehicle related taxes and fees, but the funds had been misused and diverted everywhere else except where they were supposed to go. The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), who was responsible for a vast majority of these problems (and bears notoriety for its infamous 1.1 BILLION dollar accounting error several years ago), is Perry's "baby" who can do no wrong in his estimation and refuses to accept accountability for its actions. Incompetence, mismanagement, arrogance, and criminal conduct has REIGNED within that organization, all at the direction of Perry, and he continues to appoint cronies there who will do his bidding. In reality, TxDOT vastly requires complete overhaul from ground up.

“F & F Glad to be # 1 for you. Anyone who can admit to still living in Texas with all that has been done to it by conservatives deserves some gratitude. I left before the insanity started. I must say that the last good Gov. Texas had was Ann Richards. She always told it like it was. And had a good joke to go along with it.”

HUFFPOST HILL - Rick Perry Booster Not Feeling It This Season

Many non-Texas are oblivious to this fact, and he is currently getting away with not having to address this topic which is quite a controversial "hot button" with those Texans who are not in Perry's hip pocket. He has managed to stay in office as long as he has in Texas, ONLY because conservatives were terrified of letting another Democrat get in, and he was considered the "lesser of two evils." In summary: We already have one arrogant "business as usual" politician occupying the White House now. We can do much better than Rick Perry in finding a suitable replacement.”

“Great information. Thank you.

Wish more of this was reported nationally.

Best wishes!”

“Good Luck with that Perry/Romney thing. I feel for you donziebear and I am sure that there is more for the American citizens to learn about Perry and all the rest. Romney is at least a known factor or maybe I am wrong about that as he has taken so many different stances on issues at differing times and under differing circumstance that I do not truly think anyone knows what he truly stands for anymore.

This is a national race and it is good that the people of Texas weigh in with their experiences in Texas so that the rest of us can see what perception of him Texans have for good and/or bad. Thank you for reaching out to us all non-Texans. The rest is fate.”
