Democrats in Texas were muted, to say the least, at the time of Lehmberg’s arrest in 2013, but reacted gleefully to Perry’s indictment. Facebook lit up with comments from Democrats that this would “turn Texas blue,” a feat that Democrats have been unable to accomplish at the ballot box since they started losing power in the 1990s. Such comments also give the game away — the indictment is carrying politics over from an arena where Democrats lose — the ballot box — to an arena where they might win — sympathetic juries in Democrat-controlled Travis County. Battleground Texas has been hard at work fundraising off of the indictment. The chairman of the Texas Democratic Party, Gilberto Hinojosa, is among prominent Democrats who have called on Perry to resign.
Notably, the Democrats from Hinojosa on down have been more than tolerant of Lehmberg’s drunk driving and abuse of power. They have also stood silent in the face of the indictment of Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price on serious corruption charges.
If Texas is ever flipped like California was with the first wave of amnesty, Republicans will never win a national election again. That is exactly what Democrats are after, and they don't care who they have to roll over to do it.
***57% of blacks think the cop in the Michael Brown case is guilty of murder. Thank you Al, Jesse, and media. You are successfully fanning the flames of racial hatred for your own gain. You make me sick.
***Obama takes a break from vacation to attend high level meetings. Well, that's nice of him.
***President Bush's '57 Buick sells for $580,000, proceeds to military charity. There is a man who loves his country and its military. Quite an about face from what we have in the White House now. Bravo, Dubya!
***Andrew Young: Ferguson police need to "show respect." Are you kidding me? They need to show some ferocity if you ask me. Not blaming them, I'm blaming the people who won't let them do their jobs.
Young told host J.D. Hayworth that "approaching a crowd with all of that military gear, the presence of tanks, that’s really not for local problems," he said. "The police have to be a part of the community."
