    No. Secessionist Texas Governor Rick Perry has stood against hardworking Texans from his initial arrival in the Governor’s Office. Texans HATE him! From the murder of an innocent man, to extremely high homeowner and health care insurance rates; skyrocketing college tuition and forcing eminent domain to grab Texans’ land, puts Perry as the worst Republican to lead Texas in recent history.

    Texans pay the highest homeowner insurance rates in the nation, an average annual premium of $1,409 per year, and nearly twice the national average of $804. (Source: Lubbock Avalanche-Journal)

    Perry permitted the industry to double overnight the premiums paid by Texas homeowners and refused to rein in exorbitant rates from his biggest campaign contributors. (Source: Mcblogger.com)

    A February 2009 survey showed that 85% of Texans supported regulation of the insurance industry – yet Rick Perry and Texas Republicans fought insurance reform efforts during the 2009 legislative session. (Source: Hill Research Consultants)

    The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs – run by Perry’s hand-picked political appointees – has still, four years after Hurricane Rita, only distributed one-third of the reimbursements that Texas homeowners along the coast are due. (Source: Houston Chronicle)

    March 2009 Rick Perry rejected $555 million in federal stimulus money that would have expanded unemployment benefits for Texans during Bush’s financial collapse.

    Perry had to reverse this decision and ask the federal government for a $170 million loan with interest, so that benefits could get paid. (Source: Think Progress) In 2003 Perry also asked for this loan only one other time, in 2003.

    Perry did not want to provide help to 45,000 out-of-work Texans including part-time employees like single mothers, college students and senior citizens. It would have avoided the unemployment insurance tax hike for all Texas businesses. Perry already increased taxes on businesses in February 2009 when he replaced the Franchise tax with the Margin tax, the first corporate income tax in the history of Texas. The Margin Tax IS an income tax on corporations. (Source: OpEdNews-John-Basel)

    Texans’ utility rates skyrocketed 64% between 1999 and 2007, families in Houston and Dallas pay the highest utility rates in the entire nation. (Source: Associated Press, Dallas Morning News)

    • Utility deregulation has given rise to prepaid electric providers. These providers are sometimes run by convicted criminals who market to “poor, sick, and disabled” Texans and charge consumers rates up to 50% higher than average. (Source: Dallas Morning News) Texas Democratic Party

    • Some Texans on fixed incomes are forced to choose between paying their electric bill and buying groceries. Meanwhile, money in the System Benefit Fund – which was created to help low-income families pay their utility bills – continues to be diverted away from its intended purpose. Since 2002, more than half of all the money collected for the System Benefit Fund has been spent on things other than reducing utility rates. (Source: Dallas Morning News)

    Rick Perry’s campaign contributions: (Source: Project Vote Smart)

    • 2000 – $4,056,424

    • 2002 – $20,674,811

    • 2004 -$10,299,759

    • 2006- $20,199,539

    • 2008 – $10,147,128

    Significant financial support came from Finance, Insurance & Real Estate, Energy & Natural Resources (Big Oil), Lawyers & Lobbyists, Health and Transportation.

    Rick Perry couldn't even balance his state's budget without Obama's help. Do you honestly (a rather ironic word to use in the same sentence as Rick Perry, don't you think?) believe he could challenge the President in a primary?

    I find your question condescending.

    Obama will easily win the democratic nomination for President.
