Rick Perry has helped turn Texas into a cesspool, so he wants to move to...wait for it...California.
http://www.latimes.com/local/abcarian/la-me-ra-texas-gov-rick-perry-might-move-to-california-20140617-column.html

“Perry told me that he loves California, vacations in San Diego annually, visits the state about six times a year and might even move here in January when he’s done with his 14-year stint running Texas,” Leibovich wrote. “That is, if he does not somehow decide to run for president.”

When I read that, I almost spit out my Chardonnay in my hot tub.

Given that Perry has spent so much time encouraging businesses to leave California for Texas — including running pro-Texas radio spots in California that Gov. Jerry Brown compared to minor flatulence — doesn’t that seem a teensy bit hypocritical? If Texas is so darn great, Gov. Perry, why not stay there?

Because maybe Texas isn’t so darn great after all.

When you can't compete on the merits,

bribe a senator.

So you can keep eagerly insisting that this is a thing but so far what you have is bad political optics and a House Oversight Committee Chair who is raking in millions in fundraising beating this horse while finding nothing new, keeping as much of what he finds secret and insisting it's all damning of Obama....and the people who desperately want to believe him.

Starting the inquiry isn't the same as putting all conservative groups' applications on hold forever. That came from Washington, and the evidence is unambiguous in that regard.

Meanwhile, we've now learned that the conmputers of six other persons whose emails were of interest had their hard drives crash, making unavailable the emails for the relevant period. But there's no evidence of a scandal.

Also, the subpoenas were for all emails. Now, the IRS admits that it did not turn over all the emails, only those it felt like turning over. But there's no evidence of a scandal.

Meanwhile, jammer doesn't care about illegal activity to suppress political opponents of the Administration. Only about the recession, which the policies of his favorite party have prolonged far beyond those of any other postwar recession.

Are you saying Shelby was bribed?
The proposal was introduced by Senator Richard Shelby of Alabama, the top Republican on the Senate Appropriations Committee. It’s contained in a committee report attached to the spending bill, which later would have to be reconciled with the House version.

Why is this Republican trying to squash free enterprise?

That commie Obama doesn't like Shelby's anti-freedom provision:
In a statement today addressing the provision, the White House said it has “concerns about language that would seek to apply accounting requirements unsuitable for a firm, fixed-price acquisition, likely increasing the program’s cost and potentially delaying its schedule.”

pretty weak "analysis", John

you and the people you vote for OWN the 07 Recession

reminder, you had the House, Senate, and Presidency when "you" did nothing to mitigate the direct causes of that Recession

"you" failed miserably by NOT changing mortgage underwriting and by NOT regulating the very dangerous CDOs that first took down Wall street, collapsed the stock market, and then broke the back of the US economy and put ten million Americans out of work

you have no credibility to talk about the US economy

you have no credibility to talk about National Security, not after allowing 9/11 to happen by not simply ordering commercial airliners to have secure, lockable cockpit doors

and you have no credibility to talk about Foreign Policy, not after your Republicans' horrible blunder into invading and "nation building" in Iraq

you have no credibility as regards "spending" and adding to the National Debt, not after your party robbed the Treasury of trillions of dollars by passing the largest dollar tax cut in US history while at the same time spending trillions, and counting, on your complete "failure" in Iraq


You, JohnE, enabled all of that by voting for Republicans, shame on you

Trying to lay all the blame on the GOP is BS. It caught almost everyone by surprise. I say almost everyone because a few astute investors made huge fortunes on the crash. But they were the exception. Most financial institutions and gurus got slammed.

Which Democrat leaders were calling for appropriate measures? Which Democrat leaders saw the writing on the wall... predicting the '08 crash?

The 'meanwhile jammer doesn't care...' is a throw away troll. But clearly enticing as it prompted several responses. What DOES jammer think? Lol.

Enjoy your lunch.

There were a lot of people who argued against some of the action of the GOP. and argued for reining things in. Sounds to me like you weren't really paying attention. I know that I warned about it. So did a number of other people on this forum and so were members of congress. who exactly I don't remember.

Cheney exposed a CIA agent? Who?

Was he ever charged?

Wasn't Richard Armitage the source/leak in the Valerie Plame affair?

How could Cheney be charged when the GOP controlled everything?
