President Obamas visit to Texas today is making big headlines, considering that the political and ideological divides could not be more stark between the Lone Stars leading red state status and a President who is widely considered to be well left of center.

"Jay Carney On Obamas Trip To Austin: Well, Why Not Texas? Austin Is A Hub Of Innovation And Technology
Austin is well known to be a puddle of blue in a mostly red state. He’ll have many friends there.
Austin is also the hub to Texas liberals. Perfect place for king hussein to visit. Lot’s of progressive “thinkers” there. Rick Perry ought to be out of town hunting for the occasion. Heard there may be some “very large hail” in Texas today too.
Remember that nobody has a success so great that Obama will not try to claim credit for it.
If friendly UFO aliens landed on Earth and gave mankind technologies far in advance of our own, Obama would claim credit for it.
Of course, if they were hostile aliens who ravaged cities, he would not only blame W. Bush, but invite the aliens to stay and ravage more, “because of their contribution to our diversity.”
The city of Autism. I live north a bit and very rarely venture into Travis County.
The Dems are so stupid, they think Austin is part of Texas, when it of course belongs to the People’s Republic of California.
Austin is a leftard cancer node in the otherwise great state of Texas.
Austin is a Marxists/Democrat/Communists dream, no wonder Zer0 wanted to visit.
He wouldn’t step foot in say Midland or Odessa. They would eat him alive and toss the remains to the vultures.
Well except for the south part of the State which might as well be in Meh-Hee-Co.
North and west a bit more. Western Williamson county.
Austin is a suburb of Madison Wisc.
Austin is the San Francisco of the south.
I would venture to guess that most state capitols are blue by the virtue of all the guv’ment workers on the dole.
..........I can walk out my door, turn right and walk 68’ and cross over the Burnet County/Travis County line. LOL, the air does seem a little fresher 69’ down the street in Burnet County, a conservative bastion.
That said, I have spent 62 of my 65 years here and as big cities go Austin has to be at the top nationwide. I’ve never been in a better place to live (big city) and I have been a lot of places. Bear in mind too that “conservatism”, particularly in the form of the Texas Legislature, has kept the lefties worst tendencies on a leash for decades. So, there are a lot of conservatives in Austin too.
Plus Austin is a college town.
Yeah, looks like a hunnert and sixty-five years later the mexicans pushed the boundary back up to the Nueces.
Driving through on the way to get my daughter from UNT this afternoon. Thinking about just going up 281 to avoid the lines of idiot drivers leaving UT and Baylor.
Maybe that line in Full Metal Jacket was right, “Only two things come from Texas....steers and queers.”
That and the construction in Temple and Hillboro. I avoid 35 when all possible.
...and it's in beautiful Hill Country.
DONUTS :) .....mmmmmm
There were counter posts. Especially prominent were lots of Obama Joker pictures. I was surprised at the extremely effective effort
The only finger prints that Obozo left in Texas is a history of punishing our industry by excess and vindictive regulation.
And mentioning the University of Texas (in Austin) is repulsive. UT is the most leftist institution in Texas and so far out of step with the state as to defy reason.
Technology companies moved from California and other states and set up shop outside downtown Austin. Sure, Austin city is liberal but it is Texas state conservative laws being friendly to companies that brought them here.
Companies from other states continue to pack up and move here, including the gun companies.
Hussein should keep his butt out of our state. We don't take kindly to his kind - communist, Muslim Islamist bent on destroying the country.
Obozo’s Trip to Texas.
Thanks for the ping!
“...Hussein should keep his butt out of our state. We don’t take kindly to his kind - communist, Muslim Islamist bent on destroying the country....”
Amen! He needs to stay to F__K out of Texas. He’s not wanted, not needed, and basically despised by most for his utter destruction of the rest of the country.
This is like Bush visiting the Green Zone in Iraq.
“Austin is a suburb of Madison Wisc.”
Freind of mine lives near Madison and calls it “the arctic Berkley”.
Soon to be ex-Chicagon can I get on your ping list?
Absolutely, Consider it done.
Thanks, I wont be able to call myself a Texan when I get down there, but I guess I’ll have to settle for Illinois refugee. ;)
“Texas is not where you were born, but a State of Heart, Mind and Attitude.” ~TF
That is coming from a native and one of my ancestors was born in TX during The Republic.
The leftist city of Austin Texas, the Capital of Texas, is not part of Texas?
That’s OK, LA and SF are not part of CA.
“I’m hiding inside the house today. It’s like any event where there are people I JUST DO NOT WANT TO DEAL WITH. Ignore them long enough, and they go away.”
That’s probably a good thing as the outside air will be foul today until Hussein leaves.
A foul stench is in the air today in Texas.
Yeah, I know, but it needs an ideological cleansing.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz
And it is one that everyone here sees right through. little bammy hopes to rub a little Texas success on his scrawny pathetic azz but all this will do is sharpen the contrast between his communism and the Free Market economics that is Texas.
Some words you wont hear: Battleground Texas, an effort by several Obama campaign veterans to relocate in the state and begin a project aimed at turning reliably Republican Texas blue. Said Carney: People sometimes in Washington see everything through an electoral lens are true, but I can guarantee you that is not what this is about.
Right, sure thing Carney. He would lie about a fork left on a table and call it a spoon if he thought it would help The Master, King Hussein.
They are all worse-than-worthless s**t stains with crumblies on America.
Caution, importing Chicago political values is a felony in TX.
hee hee hee
Oh Boy! I bet the Democrat and liberal Obama supporters or buying out all of the KY Jelly and “happy slickums” in town just waiting for the big party and the chance to see one of their own kind.
Obama doesn’t know that the city of Austin is not really part of Texas. It was planted there by San Francisco back in the 70’s........and the rest is history.
lol no worries about that, I hate our politics up here.
