Yes Perry is he governor. He has is plus and minuses like everyone. But he gets the job done. As for Obama, what a joke. He doesn't want to talk to anyone that will put him on the spot. He's put solders on the boarder, but they can't do anything. All they can do is serve as eyes. Well that isn't worth crap.
They don't want to enforce the immigration laws because that would kick out a majority of their voter base.
People love him and hate him. I doubt he will run for Pres though. The man likes what he does, and knows the majority of Texans agree with the majority of what he does.
Hopefully there will be a Rep Pres in the next election. But prior to that, the big test will be the Bush tax cut remaining in place or getting shut down. Biggest mistake the dems made was putting the "Health Care" in place before the economy righted itself. Worst of this isn't even over yet.
Until then the best you can do is hold tight and hope the ride doesn't kill you.
As for the boarder, our troops should be allowed the same tactic that Mexico uses on their South American boarder jumping neighbors. I'd love to see how the Mexican Gov would react to that. Detaining them, beating them, in some cases killing them and dropping the bodies on their side to be cleaned up or claimed.
