Or perhaps, “fleas” would be the better choice of words. First, Obama – he’s coming to Texas in August to raise money for the Democrats.
Democratic sources say President Barack Obama will be in Austin and Houston on Aug. 9 for a pair of fundraisers. And Democratic gubernatorial nominee Bill White doesn’t plan to be there.
Said White spokeswoman Katy Bacon, “That week is jam packed, and he’s not scheduled to be in Houston or Austin at all except for the night of the 12th. In August, Bill will be talking with Texans about the future of our state, laying out his plans for the same.”
The president’s approval numbers aren’t good in Texas, and Gov. Rick Perry has repeatedly sought to link Obama and White.
How eenteresting – Dem gov nominee doesn’t want to be seen in the same room with a president of his own party.
Or, with a president whose glory Bill White attempted to bask in, back when it was glorious and all.
White’s scamper might have something to do with Obama’s intense unpopularity in Texas. He wasn’t always so shy around the big guy.
This is a Bill White newspaper ad from February 2009. There’s no arguing with the accomplishments of the man on the left. But the man on the right…?
Update: “…when danger reared its ugly head, (White) bravely turned his tail and fled…”
