He knows Texans are furious and aren’t buying his con anymore.
What’s he trying to hide?
Here’s what you and your family are living with because of Rick Perry’s failings.
Perry’s record on the education of your children:
Perry’s record on the energy you use and the environment you live in:
Perry’s record on the Texas economy, employment and your money:
But Perry’s not suffering, instead he’s living lavishly. When he’s not in San Francisco begging for cash from his big business buddies, Perry’s cowering in his $1.85 million mansion flipping through the pages of his Food and Wine magazine – all paid for by your tax dollars.
But Perry is not about to face up to his own extravagant life style at your expense, instead he blames the Department of Public Safety and the Texas Legislature for making him live in his fancy, taxpayer-funded, $10,000 rental mansion, claiming “It’s up to them.”
Rick Perry is afraid to face the truth about his record. And he’s even more afraid to face Texans.
