Is Texas governor Perry helping himself or hurting himself by being so dismissive towards a Grand Jury indictment?

Asked by elbanditoroso (19934points) August 18th, 2014

We all know that there are all sorts of political games being played, and that Perry is one of the savviest players.

But I wonder if he is helping himself by his tactics.

The Travis Special Prosecutor didn’t bring the indictment himself – he had to convince 12 grand jurors that he had a case.

So Perry is essentially denigrating the honest Republican special prosecutor, and the 12 Travis County citizens that made a decision.

Is this a winning strategy for Perry? Why?
