Texas Governor Greg Abbott.
That’s a shiver looking for a spine to run up.
Texas Attorney General Abbott hauled his hiney to the Texas State Rifle Association this weekend. He brought a flag to run up the flagpole to see who saluted. His flag: what Texas needs is not better education or health care or jobs that will support a family. What Texas needs is more guns, dammit!
Attorney General Greg Abbott on Saturday denounced gun-control efforts by President Barack Obama and Democrats in Congress, saying the best way to deal with gun violence is to put more firearms in the hands of citizens.
“More guns equals less crime,” Abbott told the Texas State Rifle Association, which is holding its annual convention and gun show in Mesquite.
So, if you come to Texas we’ll meet you at the border and give you a gun. With education and healthcare, you’re on your own, good buddy. Maybe you can shoot you some. Then you can take it to the taxidermist and get it stuffed to hang over your fireplace. Then when Joe Bob comes to visit you can say, “See that health care up there over the fireplace? I killed that sucker myself.”
Greg Abbott was Teaparty when there wasn’t a Teaparty. I took this picture myownself in 2006 at the Fort Bend County Republican Headquarters.
Here’s what I think. Abbott will take on Perry in the GOP primary in 2014. He smells oops blood in the water.
There are many things to dislike about Greg Abbott and Lord knows I’ll talk about them all before that election, but the #1 reason to dislike him is that he’s further right than Rick Perry.
