Top 20 Pieces of Advice for Rick Perry


Gov. Rick Perry announced yesterday, after humble-bragging about all his accomplishments in office for the past 13 years, that he will not seek reelection as Governor of Texas. And he did it right here in San Anto, at the HoltCat facility on the city's southeast side.

Perry was coy about future plans, though his announcement already has tongues wagging about another presidential campaign. During his speech he merely said the next 18 months in office would see him, “pray and reflect and work to determine my own future path.”

Sounds like he could use some advice, no? On our Facebook page, we asked you for your opinion on how Perry should spend his years after being the longest-serving governor in Texas. And boy, did you respond. Here are the top 20 tips from more than 150 entries.
