I was very disappointed with Republican candidate for state representative Bob Senter’s answer at The Daily News forum as to why he voted in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary election. He said he voted in that election on the advice of Rush Limbaugh.

Rush Limbaugh is an extremist far to the right of the mainstream in both political parties. It was on his bad advice that Ted Cruz, Randy Weber and others in Congress caused the recent shutdown of the federal government. That fiasco cost our economy $24 billion and embarrassed our nation.

Galveston County voters have always elected responsible leaders to represent them in the Texas Legislature. We need to continue that momentum and elect someone who can think for himself or herself. Someone with the ability to work effectively with both parties to get the job done for our community in the Texas Legislature.

In 2008 Rush was advising voters to vote for HRC instead of BHO. Many conservatives did in an effort to keep BHO from being nominated. Many Democrats vote in RNC primaries trying to get a looser nominated.
It's legal.
It works.
HRC won more deligates than BHO and would have been the DNC nominee if N. Pelosi hadn't illegally interfered by directing the "super deligates" to vote for BHO.
Pelosi wanted a "house boy" to play with the toys and sign anything she sent him.

Senter voted in the 2008 DEM primaries trying to avoid BHO being nominated.
A responcible vote. A smart vote. He gets my vote. Should get yours.

A house boy? IHOG, seems your post continue to expose your bigotry as time marches on.

The Country is changing...Trying to stop change equates to stopping a train
coming down a mountain with grease on the tracks. From all indication,
seems you and your Ilk would love to return this Country to the 1950's era of segregation.

Now, now, dumb47, people who make your type of comment are more often then not, the ones who are trying to stir the pot.

Jenni.

May we assume you are a liberal who doesn't listen to Rush. You call him names because it's politically expected of you.
What you fail to understand is most of his three hours a day are spent reporting on news the liberal media is trying to hide.
Nothing hateful, no lies, just news items liberals wish you didn't learn about.
Jenni, instead of calling someone you have no real knowlege about names try listening to Rush with an open mind. Won't take long for you to learn he isn't what liberals want you to think he is.

I relate IHOG to the character "Cotton" (the boy's grandfather on "King of the Hill" who thinks the Big War is still going on). Or, maybe The General from "Soap". Same thing - lost in the WWII era. Now, wouldn't it have been a scream if Clayton Williams had been voted governor back then?

It must be sad for ones mind to be stuck in a place in time while ones body, in reality, is in the present.

There are those among us, who only God knows why, are still fighting the Civil War between the States. Sadly, many politicians take advantage of this with slogans that promise to protect them from and fight against Obama.
