Texas Governor Doesn’t Want Government Help … Until He Does

Rick Perry
Secede Baby Secede

Texas’ Republican Gov. Rick Perry, while speaking to a tea party gathering, said:

“We’ve got a great Union. There’s absolutely no reason to dissolve it. But if Washington continues to thumb their nose at the American people, you know, who knows what might come out of that. But Texas is a very unique place, and we’re pretty independent to boot.”

That is … independent ,until wildfires burn more than 1.4 million acres of your state and kill two firefighters. Then he comes crying like a baby asking the federal government for a handout in the form of federal disaster aid and federal assistance combating the wildfires.

Just read the title of Governor Perry’s book , “Fed Up! Our Fight to Save America From Washington” to get an idea of what he thinks of the US federal government.

This isn’t the first time that Governor Rick Perry has asked for help from the federal government that he apparently loathes. Not too long after the tea party rally where he talked about secession, he wanted the National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to pitch in and help Texas deal with an outbreak of swine flu.

Then again when Hurricane Alex caused flooding in 21 counties in July, here he comes again, crawling to the government to get his hands on some of that federal disaster aid.

As for giving Texas a hand with the wildfires, The Times reported: “Every heavy air tanker in the country is being deployed, as are four C-130s and the California-based DC-10 fire tanker.”

So which is it, Guv’nor? Aren’t you really just a big pussy that comes crying like a baby to the feds every time you get a boo boo, or are you really the shit kicking, macho man that can take care of the state you govern without any help from us taxpayers and the federal government… you know, the Governor who wants Texas to secede? Actually, I’d prefer the latter. Here’s a Snot rocket for you and don’t let the door hit ya.

“We’ve got a great Union. There’s absolutely no reason to dissolve it. But if Washington continues to thumb their nose at the American people, you know, who knows what might come out of that. But Texas is a very unique place, and we’re pretty independent to boot.”
