Running For President? Don’t Lose.

Running for president has its benefits for elected officials, the most obvious advantage being an increase in name recognition. But along with the perks are pitfalls which should cause sitting senators, congressmen and governors to think twice before going for presidential gold.

Consider the case of Texas Governor Rick Perry. After winning an unprecedented third term as chief executive of the Lone Star state, Perry was convinced by friends and family that he had a good shot at the GOP presidential nomination.

Do you want to cut through the lies and the half truths that others are saying about Govoner Perry?

Obviously Jon cannot be intellectually honest with himself but he did concede that MSNBC is trying to copy Fox’s format from a progressive (code for socialist) point of view. Stewart did admit that his show is politically biased, however, he used the copout that he is a comedian first and a pundit second.

Stewart can conveniently hide behind that façade all he wants, that’s the beauty of the first amendment, but he is one of the most significant political pundits in

Rick Perry And The Texas House Reach Agreement On Rainy Day Fund

Gov. Rick Perry has endorsed using $3.2 billion from the rainy day fund to help close the deficit in the current budget. “The Rainy Day Fund presently has approximately $8 billion in it” says Donna Garner

According to the The House Appropriations Committee prepared to vote Tuesday to use the rainy day fund money to close a $4 billion deficit in the current two-year budget cycle, which ends Aug. 31. Should the full House and Senate agree, the Legislature would have about $4 billion more to combat the state’s larger $27 billion shortfall over the next two years.

Perry said at the start of the session that lawmakers should not use any rainy-day fund money,
