Wendy’s perfect response to Gov. Perry’s move..

From Daily Kos: Written by Leslie Salzillo Here was Wendy Davis' response to Gov. Perry..


“Misplaced priorities of legislative leaders squandered a tremendous opportunity to make much needed improvements in our transportation infrastructure and help create good jobs and bring businesses to Texas. Despite urging by responsible members of the Senate to bring up the matter of transportation, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst derailed as much as much as $1 billion per year in transportation funding by stubbornly pushing divisive, failed legislation attacking women’s health care options.

If leaders are serious about using this second called special session to improve the lives of Texans by repairing and expanding our transportation networks, they will find no greater ally than me. If they intend to keep pushing their extreme personal political agenda ahead of the interests of Texas families, I will not back off of my duty to fight on their behalf.”

7. More likely Wendy for Governor...

 

in a poll before this incident and without much name recognition, she was running only 6 pts. behind Perry (41 to 47). She has better name recognition now, for the best possible reasons.

22. These are important things

but I think what a lot of us are responding to is that she is a fighter, and we need more of that.

I'd rather have someone like her who will lay it on the line when she needs to over someone who agrees with me on every element of policy, in a theoretical sense, but winds up unable to make progress against stiff, often-unprincipled opposition.

23. They're right, of course, and I'm NOT a one-issue voter

but I am still so wildly crazy about Wendy Davis. Your linking these two women really makes me smile to think of that.

12. Very good response...and so true.

In Texas, our roads and bridges are in bad shape because Governor Goodhair has been trying to hold out for toll roads.

Governor-type kind of politician! Rick Perry, you already got serious challenger if you are running for fourth term! I already intended to donate to her campaign to kick you the hell out of Austin!

26. I thought it perfect for her to say Perry demeaned the office with his personal comments.

That's how politics should be conducted. It's one of the qualities I admire in the current president.

Mudslinging in elections is one thing, but while in office? Classy as a shithouse rat's dinner party.
