Rick Perry is expected to put together a Texas style for president campaign, with the George Bush money and the power of the Republican establishment. Now that he was Governor of Texas for some 10 years, what kind of a record did he have?
Rick Perry Immigration
Rick Perry has basically taken the George Bush approach on illegal immigration, and basically ignored the issue, and done nothing to slow it down. Numbers USA gives Rick Perry a pathetic D rating:

Perry has not been mister Courage in Texas. Last year when Arizona stood alone against the national media in its fight to gain control of the open borders of the state, Governor Rick Perry of Texas was nowhere to be found. Nope he was silent. While he has made speeches in the state, and apparently out of the state, chastising the US government for it's lack of border enforcement, he has done nothing as governor of the states with the longest international boundary. Just last week Mexican military forces crossed into Texas for a brief moment. But, Perry has not been a voice on this issue, not done anything to spur federal action.

He really does go the way the wind blows. He talked that the end of sanctuary cities was an "emergency" around election time. but when the chips were down, he left Texas to gallivant around the country trying to build up support for his candidacy. we couldn't get sanctuary cities legislation passed because the money people didn't want sanctuary cities stopped. Perry Homes, a major home builder in Texas, gave Rick Perry $1 million in four separate transactions, on two different days, link below
the real reason we couldn't get sanctuary cities bill passed in Texas.

Big Government Education.
Perry backed No Child Left Behind which became law through the efforts of both John Boehner and Ted Kennedy for President George W. Bush. "It is basically the United Nations Lifelong Learning-Brainwashing Agenda under the umbrella of what will eventually be "unelected" school and community councils (council is defined as "soviet" in many dictionaries) which will make all decisions for us at the local level."

Mayor news stories when Rick Perry as Governor of Texas. A shot in the arm: In 2007, Perry bypassed the state legislature and signed an executive order making Texas the only state in the nation to require 6th grade girls to receive a vaccination against a sexually-transmitted virus that causes cervical cancer. At the time, Perry's former chief of staff, Mike Toomey, was a lobbyist for Merck, the manufacturer of the vaccine. When conservative Christians protested,
the legislature repealed his order.

They are simply showing who these people are, and if you don't like the information given, then you need to supply info to counter it, instead of just ranting about it.
