Gov. Rick Perry And His State of the State Address From February 8th Of This Year ~ A Must See Video!!!!

2/8/2011 - AUSTIN - Gov. Rick Perry delivered his State of the State address today, proposing to consolidate or suspend non-critical state agencies in order to make state government more streamlined and efficient. The governor also outlined his priorities for the 82nd Legislative Session, including balancing the budget without raising taxes, preserving essential services, and strengthening Texas' position as a national economic leader through sound policies.

"As leaders, we must continue to be fiscally responsible with taxpayer dollars and truly reform our approach to governance," Gov. Perry said. "Our discussions about streamlining state government must be followed by a willingness to act, including consolidating or suspending non-mission-critical entities until the economy improves."


Wild Thing's comment......

If I was rich I would pay people to watch thie video. This is a good example of more about who Perry is and what makes him who and what he is as a person and a leader, husband and Gov.

If you want to know what Perry believes in, his outlook for business, his goals etc. this is the video. I am so impressed to hear this speech he gave. This would also be a great video to share with others that are making serious thoughts on who to vote for in the next election.

He covers so many topics in this speech I could not list them all. I promise you it is well wortth the time to watch it.

What a difference in this speech and the anti-American and anti-business speeches we have heard from Obama.

One could take this video and think how Perry would speak as a President, where instead of speaking about his State of Texas it would be about the entire USA.

We Texans are big braggards. I don't know what it is like to live somewhere you don't love enough to brag about. Most of our bragging is backed up by reality.

Gov. Perry is a great cheer leader for Texas and his actions back up his boasting. This State of the State speech is seven months old and a some of his proposals are now enacted. I am sure that as president he would work diligently to get his ideas for and restrictions on the Federal govt. enacted.

One practice here in Texas i would love to see in DC is that the legislature only meets for about 5 months every other year. The less congress can meet, the less money it can spend and the less it can regulate us.

It would be grand if Rick Perry could give this same speech as the State of the Union in 2015.

I liked his promotion of Web instruction for Texas students seeking a GED or enrichment courses not offered by their local schools.
There was a nice program by John Stossel called “Stoopid in America” on fox that had a segment about a gentleman who started tutoring his relatives in math and then started making web programs that do that. There is also a segment about a non-union school where everybody is above grade level. That is only one of a dozen topics Rick Perry.

When somebody gets up in front of a group of people,

whether in a professional sports locker room, the factory floor of production facility, an auditorium of a new class of undergraduate college freshman or cadets in a military academy, a corporate board room, a state capitol, or the full assembly of the U.S. Congress,

and starts out by saying,

"We are bound together by shared duties, shared responsibilities, and most importantly by shared outcomes. We're not gonna get points for our speeches, or extra credit for our process or good intentions. We are going to be judged on our results and those outcomes that we achieve. I'm confident that our efforts will be found wise, prudent and effective."

Chances are that somebody is not a Democrat.
