The one thing political reporters really got to do during the recent saga of Texas' governor wooing California business was to dust off our Lone Star State cliches in hopes of describing the whole thing.
With Gov. Rick Perry's trip now over, one seems to stand out above all others: all hat, no cattle.
Credit that to Anthony York of the Los Angeles Times and this week's edition of the Capitol Connection podcast. We mull over the impact of the Gov. Rick Perry/Gov. Jerry Brown jousting, as well as what substantive debates are likely in 2013 about California's business climate.
We also take a look at a new round of debate over a tax on state oil production, and a preview of Brown's trip next week to Washington, D.C.
