PERRY: In fact, even the woman who filibustered the Senate the other day was born into difficult circumstances. She was the daughter of as single woman, she was a teenage mother herself. She managed to eventually graduate from Harvard Law School and serve in the Texas senate. It is just unfortunate that she hasn’t learned from her own example that every life must be given a chance to realize its full potential and that every life matters.Yep, he went there, attacking Davis's remarkable life experience, dismissing her as an unwed, teen mother. Not to mention the hypocrisy of "every life matters." Every life except the 500 lives the state has taken since 1982, 261 of them under Perry.
Assholishness aside, sounds to me like Perry feels a very strong Democratic challenger breathing down his neck.
Rick Perry's statement is without dignity and tarnishes the high office he holds. They are small words that reflect a dark and negative point of view.
Our governor should reflect our Texas values. Sadly, Gov. Perry fails that test.
