You are too easy to please.

David Dewhurst record of accomplishment as a conservative far exceeds Cruz’ five years in the appointed office of solicitor general.

My post was in reference to the judgment of AG Greg Abbott.

A few examples...

Greg Abbott vs. EPA

The EPA rejected Texas' rules on minor new-source review permits in September 2010, saying they didn't meet Clean Air Act requirements. The Texas attorney general, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and businesses sued the EPA, challenging the ruling.

The EPA failed to identify any provisions of the law that the Texas program violated, the appeals court said. The agency also missed a deadline to rule on the Texas permit plan, the court said.

In a statement, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott said, "The EPA unlawfully disapproved a common-sense Texas air permitting program that fully complied with the federal Clean Air Act and reduced harmful emissions."

Greg Abbott vs. Planned Parenthood

Charlie Butts - OneNewsNow - 5/1/2012 11:05:00 AM

A federal appeals court has blocked an order by a federal judge in Austin, Texas, to resume funding Planned Parenthood.

Texas' legislature voted last year to block use of tax dollars for medical services for poor women for any organization associated with abortion -- meaning Planned Parenthood lost funding. On Monday, U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel, a George W. Bush appointee, ordered the state to resume funding Planned Parenthood, saying there is sufficient evidence that the law banning the abortion-provider from the state's Women's Health Program is unconstitutional.

But Joe Poyman of the Texas Alliance for Life tells OneNewsNow the state (AG Greg Abbott) appealed that order and won.

"The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has just intervened and stayed that judge's order," he informs, "and the policy now will go into effect -- meaning that as of today, May 1, the Medicaid Women's Health Program dollars will not go to Planned Parenthood."

The Fifth Circuit's order remains in effect pending outcome of the case.

Greg Abbott Sues Feds to Get Voter ID Implemented

The Texas attorney general’s office today filed suit against U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and the Department of Justice to have the state’s controversial voter ID law implemented without further delay.

“The U.S. Supreme Court has already ruled that voter identification laws are constitutional,” Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott said in a prepared statement. “Texas should be allowed the same authority other states have to protect the integrity of elections. To fast-track that authority, Texas is taking legal action in a D.C. court seeking approval of its voter identification law.”

Yeah, I'm going to stick with exactly what I said.

And I threw in a few recent examples of why.

If Mr. Cruz is such a low life I believe Greg would have "corrected" the problem. Apparently, AG Abbott seems to think highly of Ted.

And it looks like other folks think the same thing about Ted.

They say things things like this...

He is the youngest Solicitor General in the United States, and had the longest tenure in the post thus far in Texas history. He is currently a partner at the law firm Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, where he leads the firm’s U.S. Supreme Court and national appellate litigation practice.

Cruz also served as a law clerk to William Rehnquist, then-Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court,

Cruz has authored more than eighty briefs before the United States Supreme Court and presented forty-three oral arguments, including nine before the United States Supreme Court.

In the landmark case of District of Columbia v. Heller, Cruz assembled a coalition of thirty-one states in defense of the principle that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms.[12] Cruz also presented oral argument for the amici states in the companion case to Heller before the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

In addition to his victory in Heller, Cruz has successfully defended the Ten Commandments monument on the Texas State Capitol grounds, the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools and the 2003 Texas redistricting plan.[13]

Cruz also successfully defended, in Medellin v. Texas, the State of Texas against an attempt by the International Court of Justice to re-open the criminal convictions of 51 murderers on death row throughout the United States

In reviewing this thread I see you are parroting the "Chinese" story and providing nothing else.

That is not a game changer, champ.
