I agree. The one thing I hold against RP is the Gardisil fiasco. He should never have gotten in the middle of that mandate. That meddling may hurt him BUT I can only expect KBH would go much further.

Both have been on the public dole for too long.
Problem is that the alternatives are worse.

Yep political office has become a life long occupation for many. Much different that what the founders envisioned but by the same token the world is much different from their day of reference. I probably would support time limits on all political offices from the lowest to the highest which we do have a limit on.

It’d be nice if one did.

I’m just happy though that she has decided to give up her Senate seat. We don’t need any more soft RINOs in Washington.

You should not have been amazed that GWB and “Jebbie” Not So Little deserted Harris. The Bushes will still do anything to get a Democrat to say something nice about them. And they are all still waiting.

I would rather you be wrong but the evidence seems to be on your side.

I believe she was attorny general of the state?

She was the Secretary of State and was responsible for certifying the election results. Devane is either misinformed or is not remembering correctly.

True enough, and IMHO, that particular item may have been a "learning experience" for Perry. He received a pretty clear message from the electorate during that dustup that Texans aren't keen on socialized meds, or socialized anything for that matter. The Trans Texas Corridor was another item I honestly had mixed feelings about that ended up flaming out because of a grassroots, primarily internet driven as near as I could tell, rebellion against it.

All in all, he has only committed a few faux pas that are all but ancient history by now. Truth be known, we Texans may feel pretty good about what we see as our ability to influence our "brand". ;^)

What 2 totally awful candidates. I couldn't vote for either one. RP is a police-nanny stater and KBH is country club blue blood. Is the Dem in the race a conservative by chance? Probably not I would imagine.

I agree, but the lessor of two evils you know....I think it is time we find a batch of new, young conservatives to serve Texas. Broom the current batch out and start fresh.

“She was the Secretary of State”

Ah yes. Thank you for that correction. As you can see, I wasn’t too sure.

Thank you again.

Maybe Sarah will give her a cabnet post. She would be great.
