WACO, but is he the one you really, really want to represent you. Will Cruze be a help or hindrance for the working class ? REason I ask that question is simple the midle class is slowly dwindling away and entering the lower wage earniings of minimum wage earnings and we are losing a vital tax base to both our TEXAS and federal goverments. Will Cruze really be a true representative of the people ?

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.

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
Got OBL
Saved Detroit

Created more private sector jobs in 2010 than during entire Bush years

Signed New START Treaty - nuclear arms reduction pact with Russia

Issued executive order to repeal Bush era restrictions on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research

Established Credit Card Bill of Rights, preventing credit card companies from imposing arbitrary rate increases on customers

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.
