WACO, We are even behind in creating a larger water supply and building new electric generating plants for our growing population and those comiing in the future--without adding to both the electric supply and enlarging ou water supply for the growing population and the growing inustrial complexes relocating to TEXAS we are losing a vital necessity for future growth in TEXAS. And no one has done a darn thing for ensuring these 2 vital necessities for growth in TEXAS. And I repeat no one has shown leadership in our state

Pappy you know what I think? Its gotten to the point where all you can do is go for the candidate you think will do the least amount of damage.Dewhurst sold his soul to the devil years ago.I know Cruz has financial backing from DC.I can only hope.This state is a republican stronghold.Instead of hating their guts I have to work with at least some of them.Perry is corrupt.Cruz has a chance..at least for awhile..to be better.

Your DNC teachers and handlers must be so proud of you, comrade. Forward!!
LOL. This is what extremist rightwingers said about WimpRomney:

"While Rupert Murdoch’s Sun memorably labeled Romney “Mitt the Twit,” it wasn’t just the British press and politicians who scorned his bumbling performance. Karl Rove, who’s assembling hundreds of millions of dollars to elect him president—and who perhaps should go from being “Bush’s brain” to being Romney’s—ruefully said “you have to shake your head” about the way the candidate just stepped into it. The conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer was blunter: The episode was “unbelievable...beyond human understanding...It’s like a guy in the hundred meter dash. All he has to do is finish, he doesn’t have to win. And instead he tackles the guy in the next lane and gets disqualified.”&#8232;

Disqualified is the right word because Romney went overseas precisely to show he was qualified to be president. Seldom if ever has any such an effort made someone look so foolish so fast, with so much blowback coming from across the political spectrum. &#8232;" DB

Read this again: "It’s like a guy in the hundred meter dash. All he has to do is finish, he doesn’t have to win. And instead he tackles the guy in the next lane and gets disqualified."

This POS, with all of the support and speechwriters and money and handlers in the world cannot handle A PR TRIP TO FRIENDLY COUNTRIES.

How the hell is this incompetent POS going to handle an actual difficult thing like, you know, a State Dinner or the Easter Egg Roll. SmutRomney would probably say mean things about the kids.

Is that the best the left can do? They cant run on obamas record so they will just sling mud at Romney. That's a great strategy, way to reach the crucial independent voters, who historically are turned off by negative ads. Good plan, it should work just fine.
Obama:

Ended Bush's Great Recession in 6 months
28 months of job creation
Passed first major reform of health care, 18% of GDP and growing uncontrollably, in decades

Mitt may not be the answer but he is a step in the right direction. Baby steps. You cant turn a ship on a dime, and you can't change our nations course overnight. We have to be patient to put our nation back on course, for both parties.

"What happened in 2011:

Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Louisiana had their hottest summers on record this year.

Texas had the warmest summer of any state in the U.S. going back to when modern records began in 1895 and set more than 4,000 hot temperature records in August alone. Oklahoma came in second and both states beat records set during the Dust Bowl era in the 1930s.

Nationally, the ratio of record highs to record lows this summer was 4.35 to 1. But in Texas, the ratio was 80 to 1.

In Texas, the average statewide temperature for the summer (night and day) was a whopping 86. 8°F.

Every state in the Lower-48 except North Dakota and Vermont had at least one day with a temperature topping 100°F. Many cities broke all-time heat records. Austin, Texas set new records for the most 100° days, the hottest month, the hottest summer and the hottest day in history (112°F, tied with Sep, 5, 2000)." cc


Yep, there is absolutely NOTHING going on but, dang, those corn and soybean crops are ****ed up.

Old Oregon thinks 1895 is so long ago that it proves everything.THAT is a bit short sighted.More panic propaganda from the modern media which thrives on"end of the world" scenarios.Boy can't think for himself.Or herself.

The reason it takes rick Perry so many terms to get things done is due to him not doing anything for the people of tx. He is to busy trying to find a new scam to rob every one of there money. So sad for the people of tx to have to put up with someone like him. You would think after the way he embarrassed us in the presidential elect people would see him for what he is .... but money talks loud so sad.

The cry of not raising taxes by the republicans is false. Observe Mittens proposal for the middle class. Tax Group: Romney Plan Helps Rich Most
Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney's proposal to slash individual income taxes by 20 percent across-the-board would primarily boost the income of the wealthiest taxpayers, according to a nonpartisan analysis released on Wednesday.
The report by the centrist Tax Policy Center found that Romney's tax cuts would boost after-tax income by an average of 4.1 percent for those earning more than $1 million a year, while reducing by an average of 1.2 percent the after-tax income of individuals earning less than $200,000.
Now how do you think Mittens would appreciate the return of Jobs to the USA? Republican senators “stood firm with Mitt Romney and his 1 percent lobbyist friends” when they successfully filibustered the Bring Jobs Home Act yesterday,[July 19 2012] ; The bill would cut taxes for U.S. companies that bring jobs and business operations back to the United States and end tax loopholes that reward companies that ship jobs overseas.
Now you guys in Texas already have and are experiencing the effects of reverse income tax structure.[IE] lowest income pays the greatest in proportion to income as the more you make the less you pay in income taxes. As your black gold begins to evaporate as has your blue gold, history will repeat itself and your dust bowl will return. Ya’ll in desperate need of leadership that are not drop outs from the Democracy of Ethics Universities.
Will they? Education required which republicans are first to cut. Observe Texas is the # 1 capital for the expedient polices that promote “Drop Outs”!
Observe where that has led the state of Texas. Repubs keep wanting to “Drop Out” of the USA!?? I hear a train a coming, a coming down the line.
