Greg Abbott Responds to Wendy Davis Supporters´
Mocking of His Wheelchair in the Classiest Way

Independent Journal Review, by Emily Hulsey

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/25/2014 7:02:29 AM

The Texas governor race catapulted onto the national scene earlier this week, when an undercover video revealed supporters of Democratic candidate Wendy Davis mocking Republican rival Greg Abbott’s use of a wheelchair. Battleground Texas, the group of Davis supporters caught making the comments, naturally denied the video’s validity. Additionally, Davis issued a statement condemning the language used in the video. In an interview with Megyn Kelly, Abbott, who is the attorney general of Texas, responded to the ordeal: Denigrating the disabled is unworthy of Texas….What Texans really look at is the depth of character. There’s a reason why I have been elected

Comments:
There is video of this quiet, good, effectively skillful Texas Attorney General.

FTA: ´´Battleground Texas, the group of Davis supporters caught making the comments, naturally denied the video’s validity.´´

WHAT exactly, does THAT mean? They´re on tape saying it but deny they´re on tape saying it.

FTA: ´´Additionally, Davis issued a statement condemning the language used in the video.´´

Okay, if Battlegroud Texas is denying the validity of it, WHY is Davis condemning it?

Warning! LibWorld can cause head explosions.

"My paraplegic opponent Greg Abbott ´hasn´t walked a day in my shoes."
-Wendy Davis

As the former Clinton adviser, and well-known television personality, Corporal James Queball once observed---"Drag a $100.00 bill through a trailer park, you never know what you´ll find."

Texas Dem leaders were desperate for a gubernatorial candidate. The most likely challengers declined, because 2014 is just not going to be a Democrat year in Texas and Greg Abbott would be pretty much unbeatable. When Wendy Davis did the pink-tennis-shoe standup routine and got all that national media attention, the Texas Dems thought they had found gold. No one expected her to beat Abbott, but if she could run a good and credible race, she could be groomed for bigger things later. Now, it´s not going to happen. And, I won´t be surprised if the national women´s groups begin to shut down the money spigot.

And, a word of advice to the Davis campaign. Get rid of that bumper sticker slogan. "Stand With Wendy" is a very bad choice of words.

Wendy Davis, meet "Ironside". I wonder if Raymond Burr ever met Greg Abbott and modeled his character after him. I think Ironside won every case.

oops, my bad. Raymond Burr played the character Perry Mason, who won cases, but he wasn´t in a wheelchair. Burr then played the character Ironside, a cop consultant, who was wheelchair confined because a bullet grazed his spine. Nonetheless, Ironside caught the bad guys by using his brain. Both characters were impressive and viewers always knew that they were watching good vs evil - good always won out.

Don´t take that comment as my saying Wendy Davis is evil. IMHO she´s acting more like an airhead- which is not exactly Governor material.

Just moved down here a few years ago and the Marxists are relentless in their pursuit to make Texas fall to communism like CA, IL, MA, CT, NY, MN, etc. If Texas falls, they win and they know it. This is but a minor skirmish that the left will continue and they will NEVER stop trying. Do you see why amnesty is so important to the Marxists? Texas will be a slam dunk win for them when that happens. Their vote counters down here are not as powerful as the ones they have in St Louis, Chicago, LA, Ohio (pick a city or state). When they have the illegal aliens, they won´t need corrupt vote counting organizations. Texas will be over and so will you, wherever you live.

You know, he sounds great. But it would have been even greater if he had said something about needing a thick skin to run for office, and if he would have admitted to his previous statement "what else would she lie about."

The word-parsing is just getting so old. Speak the truth, man! Truth always wins, even though you may come out bloodied in the end.

Re #4--I´m guessing they picked that "Stand with Wendy" language to remind people of that whole standing-in-her-pink-sneakers filibuster thing. Now, because of the campaign´s incompetence and the general mean-spiritedness of dedicated liberals, it will be a reminder of--well, both of those things, hopefully.
Re #11--Yes, we (or at least our liberal cultural leaders) seem to be reverting to the Spartan view of children--they belong to the State, and the "unfit" ones are to be culled out at birth (the Spartans, recall, left weak, sickly, or otherwise imperfect infants on mountainsides to die).

Ms. Davis seems to be one of those all-feely driven Liberals who is totally unaware of the real world around her. Always guided by her assumptions and never by the real road signs of life. Otherwise, why would she be so oblivious to the person who is Greg Abbott? Oblivious to a lot of other things, no doubt.

That´s it! We need another oblivious politician controlling our lives.

What would a Mitch

Washington Post, by Paul Kane    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/17/2014 5:08:09 PM     Post Reply
It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk. They were also told they would need to provide a list of property they own as well as being ordered to pay a fee or face the threat of deportation. U.S. officials in Washington say leaflets bearing the chilling order have recently appeared in the city amid pro and anti-Russian protests as tensions rise in the area. It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

The Problem with Rand Paul

In his column earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens laid out his case against Rand Paul becoming the GOP’s presidential nominee. It was a powerful indictment and perhaps one worth building on. Mr. Stephens highlighted what he believes would be some of the obstacles facing Senator Paul, beginning with his long political association with Jack Hunter, alias the “Southern Avenger,” who among other things wrote an April 13, 2004 column titled “John Wilkes Booth Was Right.” The “Southern Avenger” said this: Although Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth’s heart was in the right place, the Southern Avenger

At any one time hundreds of thousands of us are cocooned in pressurised cabins scything through the cold upper reaches of the troposphere. Soon enough, this figure will rise to a million: a million passengers, flown safely, if not always comfortably, across countries and continents, and with little call for comment. Before engines could lift heavier-than-air machines convincingly off the ground, any attempt at flight had been dangerous, and yet for hundreds of years, adventurers strapped wings to their arms, and leapt off hilltops and towers in the vain hope of flying.

His screed, “Anders Behring Breivik, a perfect product of the Axis of Islamophobia” included this sentence: The rhetoric of the characters who inspired Breivik, from Pam Geller to Robert Spencer to Daniel Pipes, was so eliminationist in its nature that it was perhaps only a matter of time before someone put words into action. In other words, we three were to blame for the massacre. A year later, Blumenthal returned to the same theme, this time focusing

WEST, Texas—Block by block, schools, homes and businesses are steadily being pieced back together here, a year after a blast at a fertilizer depot laid waste to much of the town. But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal. Army veteran Joshua Zarecor was at an apartment complex near the West Fertilizer Co. facility, watching firefighters battle a blaze there last April 17, when the plant suddenly exploded, shattering glass in the complex and causing its walls to collapse. Misty Lambert, 38 years old, who had moved to West several weeks earlier, said she had invited Mr.

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers.

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says. Rosendale is trying to stand out in a five-way primary for Montana´s at-large seat in the House. Sporting a barn

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.
