Clearing out the links
- Wayne Slater looks at Perry's break from Bush.
- The Statesman editorial board makes fun of Dewhurst 35-25 prediction for Alabama-Texas. I'm not gonna lie, when I originally watched the video of Dewhurst making his prediction, I laughed too. Dewhurst definitely appears distracted, and probably not a football fan.
In the end though, Dewhurst's prediction was pretty close.
- Aggie Perry roots for the T-sips?
"When they're playing in the Rose Bowl for the national championship you better believe I'm gonna be in the stands with my Horns (hand gesture) up, wearing orange," Perry said, before stepping off stage, away from the microphone to add, "That's going to be a tough game."The things candidates have to do...or perhaps Perry has gone Austin? heh.
- Perry says that the Obama administration is targeting Texas on an EPA regulation. Elizabeth Souder at DMN:
"Since 2000, Texas clean air efforts have helped slash levels of NOx gases, a precursor to ozone, by 46 percent, and overall ozone by 22 percent. We've done this during a time of economic prosperity unrivaled in the nation.
"From cap and tax legislation to regulating CO2 to moving ozone targets, the Obama administration seems intent upon following flawed science down a road that will lead to the loss of hundreds of thousands of Texas jobs, while doing nothing more to protect human health."
- Perry makes a trip to the Dallas suburb of Frisco to speak at the anniversary of a megachurch.
- In a potentially important move, Debra Medina will be in at least one debate with Perry and Hutchison.
- DMN's Rodger Jones wants to know if KBH supports the LBJ freeway project in Dallas. It's a bit of a catch-22 for her.
-- Alabama Gov Bob Riley apparently didn't want to do the customary bet $30 of state goods on the national championship game with Perry. Lame? Yes.
Kay and Sen. Shelby bet a smoked turkey. Guess it's time for Kay to pay up. Since it should be her campaign that pays, that's just one more break for Perry.
