When he was teabagging, Gov. Perry was talking about Texas seceding from the union. Now two weeks later he is wanting the Federal Government to come riding to the rescue when there are a handful of cases of swine flu.

Perry takes precautionary measures to address swine flu
Austin — Gov. Rick Perry today in a precautionary measure requested the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provide 37,430 courses of antiviral medications from the Strategic National Stockpile to Texas to prevent the spread of swine flu. Currently, three cases of swine flu have been confirmed in Texas.
“As a precautionary measure, I have requested that medication be on hand in Texas to help curb the spread of swine flu by helping those with both confirmed and suspected cases of this swine flu virus, as well as healthcare providers who may have come in contact with these patients,” said Gov. Rick Perry. “We will continue to work with our local, state and federal health officials to ensure public safety is protected.”

During his speech to hundreds in a U.S. flag-waving crowd, there were several shouts of "Secede!"
Later, answering news reporters' questions, Perry suggested Texans might at some point get so fed up they would want to secede from the union. However, Perry said he sees no reason why Texas should make such a move.
"There's a lot of different scenarios," Perry 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 a pretty independent lot to boot."
Independent my Ass!! Perry and his cronies still haven't got rid of the milk tooth for sucking on the government tit!! What a bunch of fucking hypocrites!!
