Gov. Rick Perry takes on Maryland in new ad campaign

quote:

Texas Gov. Rick Perry is messin' with Maryland.

In commercials set to begin airing in the D.C. region this week, Perry targets businesses and families with a message of lower taxes.

"When you grow tired of Maryland taxes squeezing every dime out of your business, think Texas, where we've created more jobs than all the other states combined," Perry, a Republican, says in the commercial.

He describes the Lone Star State as a place with limited government, low taxes and a fair legal system.

But the ads are more than a friendly invitation. He also takes a shot at Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, a Democrat.

"Unfortunately, your governor has made Maryland the tax and fee state, where businesses and families are paying some of the highest taxes in America," says the one-time presidential hopeful.

Similar ads have already targeted California, Illinois, Missouri, New York and Connecticut.

Maryland will be the sixth state to hear from the Texas governor. His office vows to continue sharing that state's economic success story around the country.

O'Malley calls it a PR stunt.

In a statement released Tuesday, he responded by highlighting Maryland's own achievements.

"Maryland has had the No. 1 public schools in the nation for five years in a row," he says.

"Since 2007, we've done more than any other state to hold down the cost of college tuition. We're No. 1 in median income," he says.

O'Malley's statement concludes with a small jab of its own.

"Gov. Perry should come to Maryland to see firsthand the better choices that have led to these better results," he says.

This is kind of a snarky thing to do, in my opinion. Instead of prancing around the country trolling everyone, Perry should address his state's abysmal education and healthcare.

We are very pleased with the public education here. In fact, pulled the plug on private school I fought for 3 years to get my son enrolled - for Kindergarten - and decided to give the neighborhood public school a try. Haven't regretted it for a second.

I do wish Perry would stop bringing in more out-of-staters with liberal voting habits.

The education stuff always cracks me up. There are tons of top notch schools in Texas.

Education is plenty good in the burbs where more parents give a shite. Not much you can do about the demographics on the state especially with so many having English as their second language.

I don't think demographics is to blame for Texas education shortcomings.

If Texas had the make up of places like Connecticut or New Hampshire there wouldn't be a problem.

I'm sure you're going somewhere with this...and the anticipation is killing me...no,no it really is.

(Obligatory question) so tell us why Quentin Compson is so sure TX education is so shitty (it's really not) and education in TX has shortcomings (it doesn't)

But please, explain away.

It's absurd? All I asked is to back up your claim of these 2 comments

quote:

Perry should address his state's abysmal education

quote:

Texas education shortcomings.


Is it that absurd? Is that an opinion, fact? If it's fact please link...

It's well known that the education in Texas is top notch

Particularly in the DFW area where some of the nation's best public schools can be found.

Yes, it does. Still curious why you believe the education is abysmal.
