The latest installment of My governor is an idiot

From the FWST, Perry warns of showdown with Washington on healthcare.

Gov. Rick Perry, raising the specter of a showdown with the Obama administration, suggested Thursday that he would consider invoking states’ rights protections under the 10th Amendment to resist the president’s healthcare plan..


“It really is a state issue and if there was ever an argument for the 10th Amendment and for letting the states find a solution to their problems, this may be at the top of the class,” said the Republican governor. “A government-run healthcare system is financially unstable. It’s not the solution.”

Perry is such an idiot that he doesn’t know that the plan being proposed is not “government run healthcare”. So every thing he says should be ignored. But as far as states finding a solution, well…Perry’s never been very big on that either. It’s recommend to read state Sen. Eliot Shapliegh’s Texas on the Brink 2009 [.pdf], that shows where Texas stands nationally in many categories including health care. And it’s not pretty. It sure would be nice if the announced Democratic candidate for governor would beat the governor up when he says stupid stuff like this.

    The announced Democrat for governor’s only chance in this race is if Perry were to get the nomination. A vast majority of Texans are tired of “Governor for Life” Rick Perry and if he were to get the nomination, we will have a real race and Perry may well be defeated. No surpirse therefore that the announced Democratic candidate isn’t speaking up about Perry’s disgraceful pandering and his Dixiecrat-era states rights talk. Tom Scheifer is probably cheering him on.

    No Democrat in Texas is going to win statewide without a fired up Democratic base working day and night to get them elected. Schieffer isn’t going to get that support just laying back waiting for the GOP primary to end.
