Yes, and Obama mocked TX, and joked about the wildfires here.
Rick Perry has said that Texans don't take too kindly with being messed with. I believe that. I will support him (unless Palin jumps in, then I'm not sure) because I think he is the one candidate who if he becomes President will be serious about getting rid of all these bogus regulations, support domestic energy policy, protect the 2nd amendment, and actually support prosecutions for those involved in the ATF ops of this current administration.
I worry that other candidates, not so affected as Texas has been by these things will just say, the old "reaching across the aisle" bs, and "let's set a new tone of civility."
Sorry, I want to see heads roll, people kicked to the curb, and payback.
