Just what is it that Obama has done to rate such an unbelievable response from a State.
Boooooooosh of course. It's their adopted home state. Many Texans feel the president has written the state off as a gimmi to the republicans. Most recently Texans blame the President for Houston not receiving one of the Shuttles.....Cuts to Johnson Space Center.
Well, you know, Texans are the sharpest knives in the drawer.
Is this a trick question?
Another valid question: why is Obama so popular on the east and west coasts? Many of those states are moving headlong into financial disaster thanks mostly due to liberal progressive policies that Obama actively supports and pursues. Bet they're really mad they didn't get a bailout when they had the chance.
You might want to take a look all across the country. The states with fiscal problems are not limited to one area of the country. Look at Texas, they are fiscally in the crapper too; so is Nevada, Calilfornia, and Arizona. And none of those are on the east coast.
Thought I mentioned the west coast too. Yup, I did. But you are right, there are a lot of other states with financial troubles, mostly due to rising Medicaid costs and public union pensions and benefits that were way too extravagant. I think Texas will be fine, thank you.
But my point was that the coastal states seem to be totally blue no matter what happens. Seems odd when about 70% of the country thinks we're headed int he wrong direction but those states continue to vote in democrats anyway. Go figure.
just which response you talking about....?
Obama's first trip over Texas
I still can't figure why Bush was so popular in Texas
Because it's a red state and he has no chance of winning anything here.
