|Washington Post Conducts Poll on Obamacare, When Results Don’t Support Their Agenda, They Withhold the Results||Hypocrisy Alert: Anti-Gun Senator Shoots Intruder|
What a wonderful day it is in Texas.
Two short years ago, Liberal Texas bloggers and pundits were high on the fumes of the Obama election, and were proclaiming that they were on the verge of turning Texas blue.
They were so smug and smarmy (yeah, I’m looking at you kids over at Burnt Orange Report, and the more-bitter-than-mean Mean Rachel), talking about how many statewide offices they were going to sweep in 2010 on their way to a permanent majority here in Texas.
But oh my how things can change in such a short time.
After the November 2010 elections, the Texas GOP had turned their narrow 2-seat majority in the Texas House into a 49-seat majority — just 1 short of the magic number of 100 seats needed to hold a 2/3 Super Majority.
Which meant that the cowardly Democrats were apt to thwart the will of the overwhelming majority of Texas voters again on issues such as Voter ID (which is so going to pass this time around). I’m sure they were already booking hotels in Ardmore, OK again.
So today had to be particularly painful for the myopic Liberal bloggers who thought they were on the cusp of turning the rest of Texas into a mirror of their Liberal utopian island here in the middle of Texas.
Two Democrat State Reps. Aaron Peña (Edinburgh) and Allan Ritter (Nederland), both switched party affiliations today in a very public ceremony. What does this mean for Democrats? Well, the super majority means that they don’t need a single Democrat vote to pass shit. The Dems can spend as much time hiding in Oklahoma as they want, and it won’t slow down progress one second.
Liberal bloggers are, understandably, downtrodden…calling for Ritter and Peña to “resign immediately.” Uh huh, kids…ya’ll hold your breath waiting on that one (no seriously…start holding your breath…).
Meanwhile, I can’t wait to get this session started. Let’s get that Voter ID bill passed quickly so we can get on to the important business of passing an Open Carry bill this time around, too.
