For some reason President Obama is coming to Texas. Apparently this is some sort of sign that the administration is “getting serious” about jobs and economic growth. Taking cues from Beyonce’s The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, Obama is rolling out on a tour called the “Middle Class Jobs & Opportunity Tour.” Bieber beware - you got some competition. Of course, if you want to know what a man values, look at his schedule (where he puts his time). So I guess Monday was a sign that Obama values golf.
The nerve of Obama to come to Texas is truly jaw-dropping. Obama has repeatedly criticized policies and legislative efforts of policies that do not support his socialist/collectivist views and submission to unions and special interests with agendas regulate “undesirable” businesses.
Luckily Governor Perry sees the hypocrisy and released a statement through his spokesperson, Lucy Nashed: "If President Obama is serious about getting our nation's economy working again, then he's come to the right place. Texas' success didn't happen by accident. It's a result of policies put in place under Governor Perry's leadership with a laser focus on making Texas a beacon of economic freedom." Nashed also said if the Obama administration wanted to follow Texas' lead, it would help the economy grow by cutting taxes and spending, rolling back regulations, passing tort reform and "getting out of the way and allowing employers to risk their capital and create jobs." ‘Nuff said.
Obama’s efforts to hijack Texas’ economic success was outlined by fanbois, Jay Carney (who also doubles as White House Press Secretary and Head Cheerleader). Carney said that Texas was one of the "areas across the country where positive steps are being taken toward the kind of economic growth and job creation that the president talked about in the State of the Union."
Obama should should go to liberal bastions like Detroit, Stockton-CA (largest city to go bankrupt in 2013), and Baltimore. These cities reflect the results of the policies he wishes to implement by fiat on the rest of the nation. What do these cities have in common? Liberal policy makers.The result? High crime rates, high tax rates, dangerously failed schools, unfriendly punitive business environments and overregulation that have killed startups and forced established businesses to move to other states like Texas.
So President Obama, do us all a favor here in Texas. Cancel your trip, stay in DC and play golf.
