The Republican Party of Texas has a great piece on why President Obama is coming to Texas. Spoiler alert, it is because the liberals correctly perceive Texas as a threat to their way of life and their failed liberal policies. This should fire up the Republican base in Texas!
Bill White is hiding out from Obama and refuses to attend the DNC fundraisers with him. Why? White is afraid that the people of Texas will realize Obama and White are one and the same. They both support the same failed liberal policies and are too liberal for Texas.
On the other hand Governor Perry is calling on Obama to meet with him to discuss border security and the abject failure the Federal Government has been on that front. Who wants to bet me Obama will take a meeting with Perry while he is in Texas?

“Something wicked this way comes…” ~ Macbeth
The Obama Team and the Democratic National Committee have Texas in their sights. Last year they chose to have their annual fall meeting in Texas’ capital city because they think they can turn Texas BLUE in the next election. President Obama himself is now campaigning and raising money in Texas to help the Democratic Party. Working with Organizing for America, they have announced plans to place over 30 paid political operatives in Texas — many of whom are already here. And they have made it clear that they want to bring their failed Washington policies to a bedrock Republican state that is still thriving despite Democrat attempts to run our great country into the ground.
The Democrats know that the only battle they have a real shot at winning this year in Texas is to overtake our razor-thin Republican majority in the Texas House of Representatives and they are launching an unprecedented effort to do it. And there’s a reason they care about the Texas Legislature. Apart from forging a Democrat stronghold in a historically conservative state, they want control of the upcoming redistricting process since Texas is poised to gain up to four additional seats in Congress — four potential Democrat reinforcements for Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and President Obama.
Texas Republicans are facing their largest threat in over a decade. This is a call to action to all conservative Texans because we are now on the front line in the battle for our country’s future. So goes Texas, so goes the nation.
If you’re sick and tired of all the “change” we’re getting from the Democrat majority in Washington, D.C. and feel like there’s nothing you can do about it, this is your fight. We must draw a line in the sand and with a loud voice tell the Obama Team and national Democrats to keep their HANDS OFF TEXAS!
