The Young Turks did some searching through Rick Perry's history of becoming a millionaire. Of course, Perry's not the only one benefiting in this way, but it's a pretty damning argument from them against Perry specifically.

That tears it, I'm gonna waste my vote on Ron Paul.
That's a great video. Amazing how much money can be accumulated by throwing your loose change in a jar every night!
I don't think it's only Perry.
Very true that's it's not only Perry. I read an article recently about a study that showed that, on average, Senators and Congressmen's investments beat the market by a significant percentage. Of course, the implication was various people are "feeding" them investment opportunities or inside information not available to their constituents.
Ralph and article I read showed that the top 80 senators and congressman increased their networth an average of 756% from 2004 to 2009. It was a smart move on their part to make sure they can't be prosecuted for insider trading. Of course I believe they are now above every law the citizens of this country must obey. I saw where Obama's net worth went from around 350,000 in 2004 to over $4,000,000 in 2009. This site was tea p[arty affiliated so I dont know how much truth was contained in it. They made sure to have most of the top 41 dems show bigger gains than the top 39 repubs. This tends to ignore the reason Bush made the Guiness Book of World Records in 2002 for appointing more millionaires to his cabinet than any other President in history. That fact kind of explains all the breaks the wealthy got during his reign. I doubt that very many in his cabinet had any interest in helping the middle class. Other than helping to destroy it that is.
Where does he really stand?

Rick Perry is dropping out of the presidential race today. Just a few months ago there were a lot of people thinking he could beat Romney, but then he kept sticking his foot in his mouth in the debates. Is this the last we'll see of Rick Perry in national politics?

It is hard to decide in the TX governor's race whether to choose a career politician good at lying tricks, Rick Perry, or a democrat, Bill White. Who would you choose?
