Texas Governor Rick Perry has announced he will not seek a fourth term in office next year.

The 63-year-old Republican, who is the state's longest-serving governor, said at a news conference in San Antonio that he planned to retire.

He has built a reputation as a job creator, and as a defender of Christian conservative values and states' rights.

Perry was on the mice laying out a plan during the debates, he got one down pat, he couldn't remember the remainder of his plans a DAH,DAH, then  Ron Paul spoke up and gave him the answers.
                            No matter, Rick isn't worried about keeping food on his table.

Governor Perry’s Vaccine Tribulations
 Published: September 17, 2011
 
Gov. Rick Perry’s rivals for the Republican presidential nomination have been pummeling him for his attempt to require sixth-grade girls in Texas to be vaccinated against a sexually transmitted disease that can cause cervical cancer.
...
The governor’s motivations may not have been as high-minded as he claimed. Merck, the vaccine’s manufacturer, had donated to his campaigns and stood to make millions if its vaccine were required. We are also seriously concerned that his rivals’ uninformed attacks might lead many parents to shun this vaccine and others, putting children at risk.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5
