Governor Johnny Come Lately wants an Amendment...

As if I could make this shit up...

Gov. Rick Perry continues his criticism of Washington, proposing an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to require Congress to balance the federal budget.

Perry said Thursday that federal spending is out of control, and unless it's reined in, it will ruin the country.

In a Wednesday appearance in Lubbock, Perry issued proposals that would make it difficult for the Legislature to raise taxes and would limit how much state spending could grow.

Lookit, this asshole has been in elected office for almost 30 years AND HE'S JUST NOW REALIZING THAT FEDERAL SPENDING IS A PROBLEM? A real MOTO, this guy. Gee, 39%, where were you when the R's were ramping up all this spending? When they passed a drug benefit that was basically a giant taxpayer handout to pharmaceutical companies? Where were YOU when Republicans abandoned the balanced budget which the
Democrats had left them and started massively issuing new debt to finance deficit spending?

I really, really hate a poltico who stands up and points fingers, especially when they were silent about things for so long. 39% is a fiscal conservative like I'm Jerry Falwell.

In other 39% news, he's also decided to not have Texas participate in a federal program that would have helped Texas increase educational standards. Nice work there, 39%.
