Texas Gov. Perry challenges New York Gov. Cuomo to a debate

AUSTIN Texas Gov. Rick Perry is challenging New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to a debate over economic policies as he visits Cuomo's home turf.

Perry, whose 2012 bid for the GOP presidential nomination was marked by spotty and sometimes disastrous debate performances, invited the Democratic governor to debate in an interview on an Albany radio station.

A debate between the governors of two of the largest states in the country on policy issues such as taxes, government spending, education, regulations and legal reform would be beneficial to our states and our country as a whole, Perry said in a statement distributed Tuesday by Americans for Economic Freedom.

The nonprofit group headed by a Perry strategist started last year, getting the money left over from Super PAC that supported Perry's presidential bid. It could help him lay the groundwork for the second presidential run he's considering.

2. Perry avoided debating Bill White in 2010

There is no need for Cuomo to debate Perry but I would not fear debating Goodhair. Goodhair is not a great debater and tried to hide from debates in the past. Goodhair refused to debate Bill White in 2010 (Bill is a very good trial attorney and so this was a smart decision).

Goohair is trying to show that he is not afraid of debates by making a challenge that he knows that Cuomo will not accept and need not accept.

3. In my opinion, if it were not for oil and gas, Texas would have nothing but the low pay jobs and

below minimum wage jobs that Rick Perry has created. Giving tax abatements to businesses that run off from paying their taxes when they finally do come due, is a laughing matter to New Yorkers and other state officials and the populous as a whole. Everybody but Perry, knows what a buffoon is.

A third world country would use its Rainy Day Fund on its children, not on repairing the gas fracking truck destruction of county roads, and not on creating fracking water through reservoirs. The people of West and Central Texas know that the desert is encroaching from west to east, across Texas, and up the Great Plains as the results of climate change. Rainfall is shifting eastward too. Water shortages are going to replace grassy lawns with desert vegetation.

Why would anyone would want to place their future and the future of their children in the hands of a Secessionist?
