Michelle Malkin » Plumbing the rest of the Perry record

If it wasn't morally wrong, I would be in love with Michelle Malkin. (I hear she's happily married and that would coveting another man's wife).

I totally agree that Governor Perry has telegraphed WHO HE IS. (and in Chicago Bear talk "He is who we thought he was.") Obama has taught us that if anything, we shouldn't give a damn about what ANY politician says - but extrapolate from their actions and history. BUT........

While Gardasil and his political approach to defending it are real problems - I don't think it is fair to put the TEXAS ENTERPRISE FUND and the TRANS TEXAS CORRIDOR on the conservative or Tea Party litmus paper.

What is Perry's #1 strength? Jobs. There are simple calculations to determine if gaining a corporation like Boeing are worth 'incentives.' It is disingenuous to believe the state should ONLY compete for jobs with warm temperatures and glossy brochures. Because it isn't just the corporation and it's employees who end up paying taxes. It is the myraid of construction workers, movers, real estate agents and deli's that crop up for the increased demand as well. AND Perry's results are good. Especially compared to states like Illinois who are bleeding jobs.

And the Trans Texas Corridor is exactly the type of thing a state SHOULD be working on instead of asking for Federal money. It brings true "shovel ready jobs" and if combined with the pipeline from Canada as is intended, will deprive China of an endless stream of Canadian oil.

There are plenty of Perry's positions to highlight (attack if you will.) These are by far the weakest - but agree ALL is fair game.
