I AM GLAD TO SEE PERRY IN THIS FIGHT BECAUSE I WAS FEARFUL THAT WE MIGHT GET HIM FOR PRESIDENT IN THE NEXT ELECTION. NOT MUCH CHANCE AFTER THIS.....
Republican Texas Gov Rick Perry vowels to fight a criminal indictment in a response that showed an
old slice of swagger that he's kept holstered lately while seeking to remake his image for a potential 2016 presidential run.
Perry called two felony counts of abuse of power issued by an Austin grand jury 'outrageous' and made no apologies for his 2013 veto that prompted a criminal investigation against the longest-serving governor in Texas history.
Perry made it clear he will finish his term that ends in January and said it was the investigation against him — and not his actions — that amounted to an abuse of power.
