Abbott Fires Up the Rhetoric in Election Eve Call

On the eve of his probable election as Texas' next governor, Greg Abbott sounded more like a candidate in trouble than an odds-on favorite.

Abbott supporters who dialed into a Monday evening tele-townhall were exhorted to get out the vote on Tuesday, lest Democratic opponent Wendy Davis usher into Texas the evils of liberalism and Barack Obama.

“We are deeply concerned by the way that we see Barack Obama and the liberal agenda trying to force its way into the state in Texas and hijack this state,” the Republican attorney general told voters during the roughly 90-minute call. "The liberal agenda is turning out their vote across the entire state of Texas. If conservatives, if Republicans stay home and don't go vote, Texas could wind up like California."

Later in the call, Abbott told supporters "if you don't {vote}, Barack Obama's liberal, pro-abortion agenda is going to be crammed down on the state of Texas."

2. Meet the actual "liberal agenda"

Obama Outperforms Reagan On Jobs, Growth And Investing

And shame on Democrats who are running away from the president. If it were me, I'd say, "Yes, I support Obama's agenda of creating a strong economy, with Wall Street at record highs. What I'd like to do is to make sure that agenda includes a strong economy for the lowest paid workers, too..."

I mean, c'mon, Dems! What's so hard about that???
