President Obama is in Texas today to raise money for the DNC. Some of the money raised here in Texas will go back to the Texas Democratic Party and Texas Democrat campaigns. You would think these Texas Democrats would be thankful for Obama’s fundraising efforts on their behalf, but they are not and they are fleeing town. Even the Texas Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Bill White is fleeing town and refuses to appear with Obama. To bad for Bill White that fleeing Obama will not work, Texans all ready know Bill White and Obama’s failed policies are too liberal for Texas.
For more information on why Obama is coming to Texas read this previous post. 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!
So who does want to meet with Obama when he comes to Texas? Governor Rick Perry does and so do numerous Texans that will rally at the Texas State Capitol to properly welcome Obama to Texas. Governor Perry is meeting Obama today to discuss border security. Governor Perry will also be speaking today at an event hosted by the Texas Public Policy Foundation about border security.
Join the Republican Party of Texas’ “Hands Off Texas” rally on south steps of the Texas State Capitol tonight at 5:30 PM.
Here is the event details from the RPT.
