Gov. Rick Perry today made the following statement regarding the decision by the Travis County Grand Jury:

"As governor, I took an oath to faithfully uphold the constitution of Texas, a pledge that I have kept every day as I've worked on behalf of Texans for the last 14 years. This same constitution clearly outlines the authority of any governor to veto items at his or her discretion. Just as I have following every legislative session during my service as governor, I exercised this authority to veto funding for an office whose leadership had lost the public's confidence by acting inappropriately and unethically.

"I wholeheartedly and unequivocally stand behind my veto, and will continue to defend this lawful action of my executive authority as governor. We don't settle political differences with indictments in this country. It is outrageous that some would use partisan political theatrics to rip away at the very fabric of our state's constitution.

"This indictment amounts to nothing more than an abuse of power and I cannot, and will not, allow that to happen. I intend to fight against those who would erode our state's constitution and laws purely for political purposes, and I intend to win. I will explore every legal avenue to expedite this matter and bring it to a swift conclusion. I am confident we will ultimately prevail, that this farce of a prosecution will be revealed for what it is, and that those responsible will be held to account."

New Guy.... Last post should have had my user ID. Grouch gets hoggish sometimes. I am probably at a disadvantage in debating someone who has the unique ability to label a book fiction without reading same. Truly an amazing ... More ›

New Guy.... Go ahead and indict a ham sandwich. My point was that most of us can be indicted by a zealous prosecutor. Zealous judicial activists are a threat to all. Over zealous judicial officials have and will continue ... More ›

Chief, Now you're asking these liberal socialists to actually read? That is extremely cruel! Even if they can read some words, they seem to have an inability to comprehend.

New Guy ... Do the crime, do the time. Does that creed stop at the Governor level or does it also apply to the Presidential level. :-) How dare a President or a Governor threaten to veto a bill. LOL

People rallying behind the police officer are attacked in Ferguson. And liberals have the gall to talk about bullying. First amendment rights for me but not for thou. ???

The whole theme of the progressive movement is one of bullying. It's not the conservatives that burn and loot. Straight people do not have 'normal pride' parades. The difference between conservatives and progressives ... More ›
