Progress Texas, a liberal group in Texas that supports Democratic candidates, released what appears to be a standard attack ad against Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott--with one major exception. Abbott is portrayed in the ad standing up holding a piggy bank. Normally, this wouldn't be a big deal and hardly would merit an article, but Abbott was paralyzed from the waist down in 1984 and uses a wheelchair.
He can't stand up.
This is just another odd example of how liberal Texas groups are uncomfortable with Greg Abbott's disability. There really isn't any explaining this away, other than it's truly bizarre.
Note how Wendy Davis, the actual Democratic candidate for governor in Texas, isn't portrayed in the ad, but instead a morose Hispanic woman is shown counter to Abbott. This could be because Davis tanked amongst Hispanics in South Texas.
While modern medicine hasn't been able to cure spinal cord injuries just yet, apparently leftist Texans armed with Photoshop have figured it out.
Liberal Texans need to move to California if they like those policies so much.
“Yer kind aint welcome hur.”
They did promise us if we elected obama the seas would stop rising and the the lame would walk...
The Dumbs figure if it was OK to do for F.D.R it was OK to do now. </sarc
And did you believe the promises?
I don’t want them here, but I suppose they’d probably fit in better than I do with all the fruits and nuts on the left coast. And Texas would be better off for their leaving. Just please remember to aim them toward San Fransicko and not Orange County.
Twisted? Democrat? Sick?
I don’t know, they don’t actually show him standing, they just show the top half of his body. I suppose one could presume he’s standing, but he and the woman could both be sitting for all we know. This really seems like straining at gnats to me. I’m SURE the dems did a million worse things just today.
Reminds me of Joe Biden’s “Stand Up Chuck!”
Greg Abbott is “Chuck”.
Iirc... Edwards said we’d have cured spinal cord injuries if we had Democrats in tbe WH instead of Bush. Must have finally got around to fixing that.
Actually it was John Fn Kerry who was going to make the lame walk again.
Christopher Reeve would jump up and do the hokey pokey according to John Edwards.
...and they also enlarged Abbot’s head and shrank his body...
Maybe took a picture of stooges in their own gang and then swapped in Abbott’s head.
