One fiscal watchdog group,&nbsp;<a href="http://www.tpj.org/">Texans for Public Justice</a>, warns that Perry should be careful what he wishes for.&nbsp;The Lone Star state, they say, may not be a model of good government.</p><p> Fri, 18 Nov 2011 20:04:20 +0000 Thanh Tan, Texas Tribune & Justin Dehn, Texas Tribune 3026 at http://kut.org Video: Analyzing 20 Years of Perry's Political Ads http://kut.org/post/video-analyzing-20-years-perrys-political-ads <p>More than twenty years ago, a young and newly converted Republican named <a href="http://www.texastribune.org/perrypedia/">Rick Perry</a> introduced himself to Texans in a statewide campaign ad that personified Texas-sized confidence. If you saw the spot, you heard an authoritative man&#39;s voice tell the simple story of why a small-town farmer was born to be a leader for the Lone Star State.&nbsp;Not everyone can sport chaps and a cowboy hat, throw around some rope, ride a horse, and sip from a steaming hot cup of coffee without looking ... well, a little phony.
