Governor Rick Perry—A Friend Of Acorn And Of America When He Finds It Useful To Be So

Texas Governor Rick Perry is a study in hypocrisy.

Below are two pictures that show Governor Perry as a hypocrite.

First is a picture of Governor Perry with members of Acorn.  I took this picture from a recent Burnt Orange Report post.  This picture was taken in 2005 as the Governor signed a housing bill.

Now Governor Perry is criticizing his 2010 Republican primary opponent for Governor of  Texas, Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson, for skipping out on a Senate vote that would have denied funding to Acorn.

It seems that not so long ago that Governor Perry was more than happy to be seen in the company of Acorn and it’s representatives.

The second example of what a fraud Governor Perry is, is this picture below where Governor Perry leans in front of the flag of the United States. (He’s leaning–right? Like he’s going to ask you your phone number or ask you your sign.) Governor Perry said recently that treason would be an acceptable option if some folks in Texas were sufficiently upset with policies coming from our elected officials in Washington.

Governor Perry should stay away from our flag if can’t be loyal to our federal union. The course of treason has been attempted before in our national history.

And don’t forget—Many Texas Republicans are open to a course of treason.

It is reaching the point where many Southern Republicans and Republicans across the nation are of questionable loyalty to our nation.

  1. my queston is since the corrupion with ACORN has been exposed on FOX news,, have you or do you plan tyo break TIES with ACORN?

  2. That was in 2005 — four years ago. I doubt anyone had ACORN on their radar screen at that time, so we can excuse the governor if he had no knowledge of their nefarious activities that long ago. It was Mr. Obama who brought them into focus only very recently. I personally interpreted Mr. Perry’s remarks regarding secession to be metaphorical in nature. He was highlighting how the federal government has grossly overstepped its bounds for too long now and is getting worse under the Obama Administration. Liberals believe in socialism. You may not recognize it in yourself, but if it walks like a duck, quacks like a . . . You say on your blog: “I define liberalism as a role for government in the economy to help make life more fair, and a broad acceptance of people regardless of who they are.” That may be what you personally believe in, but you should accomplish it through the private sector. It has no place in government.

  3. the bush admin is the part that has overstepped the constitution and they should all be arrested and jailed for their crimes. acorn is a disgrace and no left or right politician should be involved with them.

  4. Troy–I have no ties with Acorn.

    Leroy—Governor Perry works only for his re-election. He’ll be seen with Acorn or reject Acorn based on how it suits his needs.

    Bill–Mr. Bush and his team should damn well be arrested.

  5. No fan of Governor Perry’s, but I wouldn’t call the idea of secession treason. The 13 colonies did it from England.

    Comment by Bobber13 | February 25, 2010

  6. The Bush administration was not the only administration that grossly overstepped the Constitution. Stop acting like it was.

    If secession is treason, I guess the colonists were traitors?

  7. We fought a Civil War over this issue. That resolved the matter for loyal Americans.

  9. Between just the two positions of Perry to open our borders and Sharia law in Texas, he couldn’t be elected dog catcher outside of Texas.

  10. Perry is a republicrat fraud, an empty suit. But the talk of secession is not treasonous. Treason would be any attempt to overthrow the government of the USA, specifically, any attempt to subvert the constitution of the USA, which is done daily by most members of congress, the president and the US supreme court. Exiting the USA, succeeding from the USA is not treasonous at all, no more than a divorce is cheating on a spouse.
