Friday, February 19, 2016 – Pope Francis and the Governor of Texas
I see where the Governor of Texas had a scheduling conflict and was not able to welcome the Pope to Mexico from the El Paso side. Seems the governor was to swear in the new commissioner of education – Mr. Voucher. I can certainly understand the governor’s rationale for such a decision. The last time the Pope met with an American leader, Speaker of the House of Representatives, John Boehner, and Boehner resigned the next day. Texas should be so lucky. Doesn’t this entire political mess make you want to swear too?
