Political Commercials – May I Have the Election Results Please?
Wendy Davis and Greg Abbott, Leticia Van De Putte and Dan Patrick. The Final Four of Texas Politics. May I have the election results, please?
ISIS, Ebola, Tsunami, Obama, Gloom, Despair, Agony, Immigration, Obamacare, Hurricanes, Floods, Toenail Fungus, Baldness, Boils and Irritable Bowel Syndrome
In 30 seconds list as many buzz words as you can that create fear, yet have little, if anything to do with the people seeking political office to run the state of Texas. This seems to be the tactic used by all candidates. It should be known as Rovian Tactics, so named after Karl Rove, whose method is character assassination by association.
My favorite ad is “Wendy Davis is just like Obama.” Yep, blond, white woman and a skinny black man and then lots of inaccuracies and out of context video clips. Just a futuristic question to the GOP – who do you have, besides another Bush in the bush?
Wendy Davis was pretty much handicapped by Abbott’s wheelchair, but records show he did argue against the Americans With Disabilities who were asking to put a ramp entrance to the courthouse. This is the same ramp he uses to get to work every day.
Dan Patrick can link his opponent to a terrorist group by saying “immigration and border control.” If ISIS were to invade the United States via the Texas border, all those gun toting people in the Rio Grande Valley would start shooting and ISIS would be gone before they got to Cotulla.
And Greg Abbott? Your mother-in-law? Really? Your marriage into a Hispanic family does not make you Hispanic. Where is your wife? Do you even speak Spanish?
Leticia Van De Putte– an extremely smart, level headed woman who is experienced and maintains a voice of reason in a sea of chaos, also known as the Texas Legislature.
Well, Texas will just roll along with a Perry clone, moving closer to the Blues Brothers named Castro. Oh wait, their grandmother was an illegal immigrant. Never mind.
