When Texas talks about seceding from the union polls always show the rest of America seems to be happy to let them go. I am one of those people. Still, I realize that there are probably ramifications to that I have never thought of and it would be a rather flippant answer to an important event if Texas did secede. However when you see the behavior of Texas politicians, it does make one want to say, “if you want out Texas, don’t let the door smack you in the ass on the way out.” Yesterday the first politician to criticise Obama even before the State of the Union (SOTU) address was Rep. Randy Weber.
He said on Twitter, “On floor of house waitin on “Kommandant-In-Chef”… the Socialistic dictator who’s been feeding US a line or is it “A-Lying?” Really? Kommandant-In-Chef instead of Commander and Chief to make fun of Obama’s job. How is that even funny, seems stupid to me. Is he comparing Obama to A-Rod because A-Rod lied about steroids and he thinks Obama is a liar? I’ll bet a large majority of Americans didn’t even get the reference. Of course this is straight out of the Republican playbook. Call someone a name instead of giving a well reasoned argument as to why you disagree with them. I suspect it’s because they don’t actually have a reason. They just hate Liberals and Obama on spec.
Guess where Weber is from? You guessed it … Texas. (“Blame it on Texas” begins to play softly in the background)
Then during the SOTU Rep. Steve Stockman walked out whining, “I could not bear to watch as he continued to cross the clearly-defined boundaries of the Constitutional separation of powers.” Really, a guy that belongs to the party that seems to want to make America a Christian theocracy is accusing Obama of violating the separation between church and state. Or is he just talking about the branches of government? Regardless, neither is true and Stockman offers up no proof. Stockman also is the guy that invited gun nut pants shitter Ted Nugent to last years SOTU.
Guess where he Stockman is from? You guessed it again … Texas.
Why is it that a high percentage of asshole politicians seem to be from Texas?
Editors Note: Apologies to Austin, Texas which is a cool town. It’s the only city in Texas that knows a bong is a water pipe and not the sound a bell makes. h/t to social worker Jan Falk for reminding me about Austin.
