    So why is Perry such a good target for Democrats? It is because, while Texans are very Conservative, for the most part, they are not necessarily in lockstep with any particular party. Don't forget that Texas voted for Ann Richards before voting for George Bush.

    Perry is in real danger, not because he is a Republican, but because he is not the Conservative he claims to be.

    1) After receiving contributions from a pharmaceutical company, Perry issued an executive order that would have forced all schoolgirls in the state to be innoculated with a vaccine in which human testing had not yet been completed. Fortunately, that order was overridden by the state's Congress.

    2) Perry issued an executive order that put a dollar tax on every pack of cigarettes sold in the state.

    3) Perry pushed an unsuccessful plan to turn most of the freeways in Texas to tollways.

    4) Perry is one of Texas' biggest advocates for the unpopular Trans-America corridor, which would run through the state.

    5) Perry issued an executive order allowing Mexican trucks to operate in Texas without inspections. In Houston alone, there have been many horrific accidents, resulting in death, due to Mexican trucks with defective brakes and bald tires.

    6) And, of course, Perry backed the plan to rewrite history books in the state, which promote Confederate personalities, and which euphemistically refer to the slave trade as the Atlantic Triangular trade.

    Put it all together, and Perry is in huge trouble. White is still not that well known in some parts of Texas, but still has a huge advantage in favorability, with a 37% favorable rating and 25% unfavorable. As you can see, White has a lot of room to grow his favorability numbers here. On the other hand, just 27% of Texans give Perry good marks, while 55% of Texans saying he is doing a poor job.

    My prediction here - Perry is toast. It's not because the Democrats have any answers to conditions in Texas, but because Perry acts more like a Communist than a Conservative. As for myself, I will be voting for a Democrat for the very first time in my entire 60 years of life.

    Don't let the door hit you on the way out, Rick.

    Article is here.
    LOL Stop drinking that water down there.

    I'm no fan of him but the alternative is unthinkable. Nothing white has shown would make me vote for him.

    But if you would like to make a friendly wager.......


    White has zero chance of winning. ZERO. Not if a thousands pigs learned how to fly would he ever make it as governor.

    And Bill White is also quite a blue dog democrat too, but I guess to Texmaster anyone who is not hard right is not good for Texas.

    I am one those that thinks anyone but Perry, and my vote would have gone to Ms. Bailey now it goes to Bill white, since I thought he did a great job with Houston after what he had been left with by Mayor lee Brown who bankrupted Houston. He got us back on track, and got the money flown again.

    Yes he is!

    In all seriousness, I will bet ANYONE on this board that Perry will win.

    The terms are you have to have in your signature for a week whatever the looser wishes you to have. (as long as its within the rules)

    Who wants a piece?

    I understand reading comprehension is a chore for you but if you had actually read what I said, I don't like Perry. Try to keep up next time mmmkay?

    I am one those that thinks anyone but Perry, and my vote would have gone to Ms. Bailey now it goes to Bill white, since I thought he did a great job with Houston after what he had been left with by Mayor lee Brown who bankrupted Houston. He got us back on track, and got the money flown again.
    Of course you are. You're a liberal. Where's the shock in that?

    And Dallas (Fort Worth went comfortably red in the last election), San Antonio and El Paso.

    Have they done anything to significantly reverse that?

    Do you remember the redistricting suit - League of United Latin American Citizens v. Perry - that wound up in the Supreme Court? The court did not throw out the entire redistricting plan, but ruled that District 23 did violate the Voting Rights Act. A Hispanic Democrat defeated a Republican for that seat. The District 23 ruling, by the way was decided by a 5-4 vote. Bet you can't guess who were the four who dissented...LOL

    Some may have forgotten, but many Hispanics haven't.



    Texas as a whole voted for GWB in huge numbers, mainly because he's from...well Texas...


    From the U.S. Census Bureau:
    White persons not Hispanic, percent, 2008
    Texas 47.4% USA 65.6%


    Or sooner...time will tell


    Bill White was not well known outside of Houston until recently. He was elected with 91 percent of the vote for his second term as Mayor of Houston. He got a lot of good statewide (as well as nationally) PR during Katrina with all of the refugees going to Houston. He has been steadily closing the gap between him and Perry as he campaigns around the state and become known. Also don't forget he was born and grew up in San Antonio and speaks fluent Spanish.


    Ditto
    I'm afraid you are only fooling yourself, we don't have many hardcore california-type democrats outside of Austin/San Antonio. And even those cities are moderately liberal. Texas is as conservative as conservative gets, and it's just about mandated in the state constitution, so even a communist insurgence from Russia would only be able to move the state's political leaning from conservative to moderate-conservative.

    When in the face of an asshole like Perry, you're fooling yourself if you think White's election will mean anything. I would want White over Perry because Perry is a heartless fool.

    I hope White wins and all but, I don't want unions and freakshow-liberals from New York flooding the state with money and activists and **** thinking all of a sudden they have a chance. The only way the state democrat party even wins seats is because they make their policies look like the national republican party.
