It seems that every politician in Texas is running against president Barak Obaama, but some are taking it to new heights.
After this speech by the president:
“Today, after four years of economic growth, corporate profits and stock prices have rarely been higher, and those at the top have never done better. But average wages have barely budged. Inequality has deepened. Upward mobility has stalled. The cold, hard fact is that even in the midst of recovery, too many Americans are working more than ever just to get by – let alone get ahead. And too many still aren’t working at all.
Our job is to reverse these trends. It won’t happen right away, and we won’t agree on everything. But what I offer tonight is a set of concrete, practical proposals to speed up growth, strengthen the middle class, and build new ladders of opportunity into the middle class. Some require Congressional action, and I’m eager to work with all of you. But America does not stand still – and neither will I. So wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families, that’s what I’m going to do.”
Todd Staples ran an ad for Lieutenant Governor of Texas quoted the president as saying, “So wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation, that’s what I’m going to do,” clearly omitting Omama’s words as an attack. He is then photographed buying and aiming a gun. His next words were “So Mr. President, if you still want to mess with Texas, we’ve got a saying for you. Come and take it.” Should he be punished for crossing the line?
