    Candidate A was against the bail out. He stated it many times and if he was someone in position he voted against it. He was on the losing end of that arguement. Now his constituants are on the hook for this money. That is, they are going to have to pay it back. So the choice is to use it since it's your money or disregard it and pay for someone else to use it.

    Atheists don't agree with the reasons behind Christmas but they don't generally complain about getting the day off.
    That might make for a convincing argument if he didn't send the letter urging congress to pass the 800 billion TARP bill.

    Only reason Texas elects so many "conservatives" is because of Tom Delay and his gerrymandering of the districts in Texas.. with the help of Rick Perry. Ask the people in Rick Perry's home town about that and how they lost their representation due to it.

    That is liberal spin, 80% of the hole in this state wasn't filled by stimulus money and most of the hole wasn't created by TX policy but Federal Policy. keep spinning.

    Right, mind numb Texans aren't smart enough to vote their conscience. Unbelievable post. You see when I moved to TX I got a tatoo forced upon me to vote Republican and thus gerrymandering forced me to vote for the Republican candidate because of that tatoo. Personal beliefs and ideology never mattered only the tatoo.

    How is that hope and change working out for you and the country? 26% support Obama's handling of the economy today. Going to be hard for politicians to find Democrats to gerrymander into a liberal voting bloc

    Honestly no, I don't listen to Mark Levin. Grew up a Democrat but the party left me. I am a conservative and have always been a conservative. There used to be room in the Democrat Party for conservatives.

    You know what, you are right. I either had forgotten or whatever about this point. Thanks. Any support I have for Perry (for the record, my user name has absolutely nothing to do with him) has greatly diminished.

    I was still concerned over his immigration stance but combined with this doesn't make him real appealing.

    Perry was a Democrat at one time, So was Ronald Reagan, so what I. We outgrew it when we finally realized what a bankrupt ideology it is.

    I guess the Southern Strategy worked, then.

    I believe logic and common sense kicked in more so than the Southern strategy. Don't you think it is a little arrogant on your part claiming that people aren't smart enough to make up their own minds and require someone else to do the thinking for them. Sounds like you have been a liberal way too long but it does show what you think of the individual. No wonder support for liberalism is declining.

    You're right -- it wasn't 80%. It was actually 97%.

    Texas balanced budget with stimulus money from Washington - Jan. 23, 2011
