    Democrats are just dumb. You dont put your rising stars up against some of the most popular republicans. You take out the less popular geezz. At least the Castro twins know this thats why they pulled out.

    It's OK. I'm going to run against Greg Abbott for Governor in 2018.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Sure just have them wait another decade put your "rising stars" on ice until they are in their 50s. Please become a democratic strategist, I'll even write you a glowing letter of recommendation.

    Everyone knows the Governor and the two senates seats are not going to change in the near future. If they want to take Texas they need to go after house repesentatives and the state legislator. Which is alot easier to do and allow them to block the republicans there. I personally think they're bright stars if we can call them that would be better suited in other states like Pennsylvania or Florida or Ohio. Where the republicans are at least challenged in those states.

    I don't think I can agree. Julian already has national name-recognition. Joaquin doesn't yet, but as carefully as they seem to calculate political opportunity, I think he will.

    Nope, the only, ONLY reason Julian has any is Obama elevated him to HUD I believe it was. They are both bad people.

    Castro only mentions his mother once and barely tells her story. That might be because she is the real source of his commitment to government as the solution. In fact, he previously stated "My mother is probably the biggest reason that my brother and I are in public service.” She was a political activist that helped establish La Raza Unida which means The United Race. When asked about the Alamo, Rosie Castro stated "I can truly say that I hate that place and everything it stands for." This is not exactly mainstream American thinking. There is nothing wrong with ethnic identity and pride. We have many such manifestations. But being against an iconic American symbol speaks loudly of her twisted perception of American life.
    Now Ms. Castro has her two sons in office where, instead of aiming toward providing impetus for their community building businesses and participating in the miracle of American free enterprise, they want to tether people to government through their “investment” of our money on the projects they deem appropriate.
    Yes, Grandma would be rolling in her grave; and, though she might be proud of her grandsons for achieving public office, she also might say to them “Go get a job and see what real life is like.”
