News flash: Rick Perry fails to tell the truth

I’m as shocked as you are.

Contrary to his public statements distancing himself from a brewing controversy in higher education, Gov. Rick Perry continually pressed his appointees to university boards of regents to promptly adopt “reforms” that critics say are simplistic and harmful to research institutions, according to emails obtained by the Houston Chronicle.

I haven’t followed this story of Rick Perry’s attempt to do to higher education what he’s done to the rest of the state very closely. Go do Google News searches on Rick O’Donnell and Jeff Sandefer for details. Frankly, I’m just amazed that any of Rick Perry’s emails were obtainable by the press. I mean, those emails were from 2008 and 2009. How it it they hadn’t been purged already? The fact that these emails prove Perry has been lying isn’t particularly remarkable – I mean, what did you expect? It’s the fact that they were allowed to remain in existence that’s truly notable.

    Just proves that Gov. Goodhair is not invincible. I think this underlines my complaint that the Dems just refuse to put up credible candidates. Bill White, Linda Chavez Thompson and Gen. Sanchez do ZERO to inspire swing voters. The Dems need to either invest in young candidates that will be viable in a few yrs and or get one of their State Senators to have some cajones and run for statewide office
