Obama: Texas Will be a Battleground State Soon
washingtonexaminer.com ^ | July 17, 2012 | Staff

Posted on 07/17/2012 3:24:50 PM PDT by BarnacleCenturion

Speaking to supporters in Texas today, President Obama vowed that the Lone Star State would soon be a battleground state.

“(Y)ou know, you’re not considered one of the battleground states,” he said, speaking in front of the Texas state flag. “Although that’s going to be changing soon.”

During the speech, Obama criticized Romney’s support of the Arizona immigration law and promoted his own immigration policy for young illegal immigrants.

There is a pall over most Texans today, just knowing how badly the air is being fouled....

He’s right, our elites are electing a new people. As we just watch and vote for Republicans who are too big of cowards to even mention there is an ineligible fraud in the WH. Well I ain’t voting Republican is all I know.

I hate to say it but he’s right.

Between the south of the border invaders and liberals fleeing south to escape their mess, Texas is changing.

Fortunately the north has taken a conservative turn.

He said this in Texas at a GBLTDONKEY fundraiser. Wonder if he again said anything about those people he doesn't like who "cling" to things like the Constitution (God and guns).

i don’t understand posters on this site that have to act like fools . . .because they don’t like the candidate offered up or because they just want to take their toys and go home.

I suspect they shoot themselves in their foot quite often. Yeah, you, poster K. Take your marbles (if you have any) and go home.

Ha Ha! My 86 yr. old aunt and I talk by phone and laugh ironically about how we’ll support each other when they lock us up in the re-education camp. . but, ugh, cabbages smell pretty rough. I didn’t count on cabbages. Maybe they’ll consolidate the TN and TX camps so she and I can be a support system for each other.

(She’s a tough old Texas bird; shoots first and asks questions later, so they’ll never take her alive.)

The piece of crap held up a lot of folks today. Traffic was stopped for "his royal kenyanness" and his entourage. A lot of people aren't happy.

Luckily, he didn't pull this stunt during rush hour.

This isn't a joke.

Obama is right in the sense that Texas -- as a sovereign state -- is a major stumbling block in the road to dissolving American sovereignty and gaining control of the North American continent.

Arizona is a practice drill.

Obama is telling us everything, and laughing at our ignorance and gullability.

The Californians probably are not the people you need to worry about. It’s the voting, non-citizen, illegal immigrants who will control your politics. And their allegiances lie elsewhere.

He was probably referring to a literal battleground. See e-mail below, I received yesterday from my favorite aunt:

The country of Texas

Please note that Texas is the only state with a legal right to secede from the Union . (Reference the Texas-American Annexation Treaty of 1848.)

We Texans love y’all, but we’ll probably have to take action if Barack Obama wins the election. We’ll miss you too.

Here is what can happen:

1: Barack Hussein Obama is President of the United States, and Texas secedes from the Union in summer of 2013.

2: George W. Bush will become the President of the Republic of Texas . You might not think that he talks too pretty, but we haven’t had another terrorist attack, and the economy was fine until the effects of the Democrats lowering the qualifications for home loans came to roost.

So what does Texas have to do to survive as a Republic?

1. NASA is just south of Houston , Texas . We will control the space industry.

2. We refine over 85% of the gasoline in the United States .

3. Defense Industry—we have over 65% of it. The term “Don’t mess with Texas,” will take on a whole new meaning.

4. Oil - we can supply all the oil that the Republic of Texas will need for the next 300 years. What will the other states do? Gee, we don’t know. Why not ask Obama?

5. Natural Gas - again we have all we need, and it’s too bad about those Northern States. John Kerry and Al Gore will have to figure out a way to keep them warm....

6. Computer Industry - we lead the nation in producing computer chips and communications equipment -small companies like Texas Instruments, Dell Computer, EDS, Raytheon, National Semiconductor,Motorola, Intel, AMD, Atmel, Applied Materials, Ball Microconductor, Dallas Semiconductor, Nortel, Alcatel, etc, etc. The list goes on and on.

7. Medical Care - We have the research centers for cancer research, the best burn centers and the top trauma units in the world, as well as other large health centers. The Houston Medical Center alone employees over 65,000 people.

8. We have enough colleges to keep us getting smarter: University of
Texas , Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Texas Christian, Rice, SMU, University
of Dallas , University of Houston , Baylor, UNT ( University of North
Texas ), Texas Women’s University, etc. Ivy grows better in the South anyway.

9. We have an intelligent and energetic work force, and it isn’t restricted by a bunch of unions. Here in Texas , it’s a Right toWork State and, therefore, it’s every man and women for themselves. We just go out and get the job done. And if we don’t like the way one company operates, we get a job somewhere else.

10. We have essential control of the paper, plastics, and insurance industries, etc.

11. In case of a foreign invasion, we have the Texas National Guard, the Texas Air National Guard, and several military bases. We don’t have an Army, but since everybody down here has at least six rifles and a pile of ammo, we can raise an Army in 24 hours if we need one. If the situation really gets bad, we can always call the Department of Public Safety and ask them to send over the Texas Rangers.

12. We are totally self-sufficient in beef, poultry, hogs, and several types of grain, fruit and vegetables, and let’s not forget seafood from the Gulf. Also, everybody down here knows how to cook them so that they taste good. Don’t need any food.

13. Three of the ten largest cities in the United States , and twenty- three of the 100 largest cities in the United States , are located inTexas. And Texas also has more land than California , New York , New Jersey , Connecticut , Delaware , Hawaii , Massachusetts , Maryland , Rhode Island and Vermont combined.

14. Trade: Three of the ten largest ports in the United States are located in Texas .

15. We also manufacture cars down here, but we don’t need to. You see, nothing rusts in
Texas, so our vehicles stay beautiful and run well for decades. This just names a few of the items that will keep the Republic of Texas in good shape. There isn’t a thing out there that we need and don’t have.

Now to the rest of the United States under President Obama: Since you won’t have the refineries to get gas for your cars, only President Obama will be able to drive around in his big 5 mpg SUV.The rest of the United States will have to walk or ride bikes.

You won’t have any TV as the Space Center in Houston will cut off satellite communications. You won’t have any natural gas to heat your homes, but since Mr. Obama has predicted global warming, you will not need the gas as long as you survive the 2000 years it will take to get enough
-heat from Global Warming.

Signed,
The People of Texas

P.S. This is not a threatening letter - just a note to give you something to think about!SLEEP WELL TONIGHT - THE EYES OF TEXAS ARE UPON YOU!!
