Texas Gov. Rick Perry
takes jab at New York Gov.
Andrew Cuomo saying New York
should be jealous of Texan economy

New York Daily News, by Glenn Blain

ALBANY - There’s a Texas style feud brewing between Rick Perry and New York Gov. Cuomo. Perry, the Texas governor and possible 2016 Republican presidential contender, took a swipe at the Democrat Cuomo during a policy forum Thursday. “You could say that the economic climate that has allowed (Texas) to grow and create jobs, he’d dearly love to be able to stand up and say, ‘We did this in New York.’ But he can’t.” Perry also said Cuomo, “if he were truthful” would admit that he’d want to be a Texan.

There is no "feud" brewing. Sorry, NYDN. But, I´ll admit that sometimes Perry´s mouth gets a little ahead of his brain.

Cuomo is the principal architect of the housing and banking crash of four years ago. Amazing he could run for President. Can´t fix stupid.

Doubt there will be a "feud". Cuomo will just ignore Perry as most people outside of TX already have.

I like the way Texas is governed but fair is fair. When Perry touts Texas´ prosperity he has to give some credit to the natural resources of Texas. New York has no oil. Neither does Massachusetts which was dissed by Perry in the nomination fight. Despite that disadvantage, New York and Massachusetts have little poverty.

#2 those things would probably be resume-enhancers for DemRats. And given the mood of the country, probably a majority of the electorate would agree. So they wrecked the economy. Big deal. The DemRats will solve that by blaming Republicans and laying more taxes on "the rich". See how easy it is to be a liberal? Just have no brains or guts.

There’s a Texas style feud brewing between Rick Perry and New York Gov. Cuomo.

Excuse me, Glenn Bain, it takes two to feud. How difficult is it to comprehend the caption beneath your photo of Cuomo, which explicitly states, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo hasn´t responded yet . . . .?

Governor Perry also said: I’m sure that I couldn’t get all 49 other governors to admit that they would want to be Texans. So why didn’t you claim “There’s a Texas style feud brewing between Rick Perry and the other U.S. governors”?

Is your REAL aim to do to Perry what the drive-by media did to him when he ran for President in 2012? Are you trying to obviate his running again in 2016?

Texas Governor Rick Perry is a CONSTITUTIONIST who strives for smaller government and for individual freedom. New York Cuomo is a NANNY.

THAT is why Texas is thriving while we New Yorkers suffer Cuomo’s crappy economy and Cuomo’s creepy fiats.

Eric Holder defends using Justice

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

The increasingly open “civil war” now raging between a Republican establishment that favors big government and members of the Tea Party is a necessary evil that will eventually force the GOP back to its limited government principles, conservative leaders say. “This is part of a literally 102-year-old civil war that’s been going on in the Republican Party since 1912, when Teddy Roosevelt leaves the Republican Party, splits the party, starts the Bull Moose Party, which leads directly to Woodrow Wilson’s election with less than 42 percent of the vote,” Conservative HQ chairman Richard Viguerie told CNSNews.com.

NEW YORK- The U.S. economy has regained all the private-sector jobs it lost in the Great Recession; it took six years. The Labor Department said Friday that America added 192,000 jobs in March. The unemployment rate remained 6.7 percent. After five years of being in and out of work, Tara Dublin found a job a few weeks ago as a hostess at a restaurant in Portland, Ore.. "I´ve been hired by this restaurant I absolutely love, but it´s a part-time position," Dublin says. She makes $11 an hour, plus tips. In March, of the 192,000 jobs created, 30,000 were in

The discovery led to the arrest of a 73-year-old woman accused of running one of the warehouses connected to a drug smuggling operation, according to a joint news release by four federal agencies.

In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there
