Living in Texas my entire adult life, I've seen them come and go. Perry is not one of my favorite people, but then again, most that tend to rise to high office aren't either. I will say that he's very pro 2nd Ammendment and has supported everything coming out of the state legislature, and has pushed for some that haven't made it through. He's awfully cozy with with the money men and there are some curious decisions that reek of favoritism, but by and large he's done a decent job.
For those that talk about his time as a Democrat, most people don't realize that Texas Democrats are typically more conservative than most Republicans out there in the other 48. I would imagine that supporting Gore was simply toeing the partly line and being a good soldier. Mistakes of youth can be overlooked.
I remember the coyote story well. He shot it with a Ruger LCP with a Crimson Trace laser when it came up on him and what I believe was his daughter's dog.
If I have my facts straight, I believe he flew C130's as an Air Force Captain.
I voted for him in the Texas gubenatorial primary over Kay Bailey Hutchison, and will most likely support him in the Republican primary as well. I would love to see Ron Paul make it through, but fear he's not electable.
One Riot, One Ranger. Long live the Republic of Texas.
