Perry Speaks at TX GOP Convention

By Bill O'Neil

One final appearance as Governor before the State Republican Party's Convention in Fort Worth--where Rick Perry sounded more like a 2016 Presidential candidate. 

"Soem states took the bait of Obamacare--and they expanded Medicare. We did not--and we will not subscribe to federal blackmail" the Governor said to cheers. Perry also criticized the Administration for the V.A. scandal--pointing to it as an illustration that government-run healthcare does not work.

As for efforts to turn Texas "blue" in the years ahead--which has had some national Democrats buzzing--Perry said he is not impressed. 

"Let's be really clear--Texas will be their political burial ground" Perry said.
