At home in Texas, Perry gets rocky welcome 

http://news.yahoo.com/home-texas-perry-gets-rocky-welcome-034628214.html 

AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - Governor Rick Perry has gotten a rocky welcome home to Texas, facing low poll numbers and criticism over state expenses related to his failed campaign for the Republican presidential nomination.

Travel for Perry's security team cost the state nearly $800,000 between September and November, according to a new report from the state Department of Public Safety.

The money paid for airfare, food and hotels for the governor's protective detail during trips both in Texas and to out-of-state locations such as Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and Manchester, New Hampshire.

The longest-serving governor in Texas history was briefly the frontrunner among Republican presidential contenders, but he stumbled with poor debate performances and gaffes - including his memorable "oops" when he couldn't recall the third federal agency he wanted to eliminate. He dropped out of the race last week...

While I think, overall, that Perry has done much more bad than good for Texas, he is NOT particularly popular - especially over his handling of education financing.  If the Republicans want to hold onto the governor's chair, I think ol' Rick needs to step down.  Maybe take a job in the Romney/Gingrich administration?

After I read the story, I checked out the comments.  Incredibly, there was not one comment supportive of Perry.  Not even for trolling purposes.  I don't even want to know how hated you have to be if the trolls won't even pretend to support you.

People are driven to comment about stuff they really hate or stuff they really love . . . Perry draws a lot of haters!

Yeah, like maybe Secretary of Education.

NO!!!!  they're going to eliminate that department, remember? TeddyR

I've never supported the guy....he's such a self-serving hypocrit. Plus I know a number of teachers that feel even less love for him than I do.
And another thing....if all that cash from the lottery is going for education then why is our system suffering so much? Hatred

Yes,I'm fine....as long as I don't look too closely.
