Austin is the MOST liberal city in Texas. The only reason why it’s doing better economically is because it’s SMALL. The core of Austins liberalism comes from UT and downtown. However, in comparison, that area is not very big, but it’s the one that controls the city government and offices. The outskirts of Austin are much LESS liberal. MUCH LESS.
Obama chose this city for the same reason that the Cordoba Mosque is being built on Ground Zero. This city is where George Bush came from and where Rick Perry is currently.
Hail the King. The CZAR and all his lesser Czars are coming to town.
There is going to be a Rally at 5:30pm at the Capital
Bill White is running for the hills and wants nothing to do with POTUS
Meanwhile Perry is going to confront POTUS, who will then flip him off in front of his constituents. If he gives him an “audience” it will be a 15 minute, perfunctory, meeting. POTUS will say, “yes, yes, those are all good points” and then party downtown somewhere. Have some beer at the BROKEN SPOKE or something.

President Obama adds UT talk to Austin stop
President’s swing through Texas to include Democratic fundraisers in Austin, Dallas
Published: 8:21 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 5, 2010
President Barack Obama will speak Monday at the University of Texas during a swing through Texas that will also include appearances at Democratic Party events in Austin and Dallas the same day, the White House announced Thursday.
“We’re delighted the president will be here to talk about higher education on the campus,” said UT President William Powers Jr.
The invitation-only audience at UT’s Gregory Gym is expected to consist mainly of college students, according to a Democratic source who did not want to be identified because the source was not authorized to give information on the event.
Obama will headline a fundraiser in Austin for the Democratic National Committee, and he will travel to Dallas for a Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee event. The Austin event is likely to be a high-dollar affair, possibly at the Four Seasons, according to an e-mail that has circulated among local Democrats.
In an interesting twist, the Democratic candidate for governor of Texas plans to be far away from Obama during his visit , while the incumbent Republican is seeking a meeting with the president.
Bill White, the Democratic candidate and former Houston mayor, plans to be in Midland, Abilene and Alvarado. White spokeswoman Katy Bacon said he has no plans to attend either of the fundraisers with Obama. Obama didn’t carry Texas in the 2008 election, and there’s little doubt White needs votes from people who didn’t support Obama then to have a chance of unseating Gov. Rick Perry in November.
For his part, Perry has requested a meeting with Obama while he’s in town to discuss the economy, border security and the Gulf oil spill, said Bryan Preston, a spokesman for the Republican Party of Texas. The governor’s office hasn’t received a response from the White House, Preston said.
Meanwhile, the Republican Party is responding to Obama’s visit with a rally at 5:30 p.m. Monday at the Capitol. The Hands Off Texas Rally will include remarks by Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson and former state solicitor general Ted Cruz, according to the party’s website.
“We are doing a rally to send a message to President Obama and the Democrats that their policies are harmful, they are destructive to the country, and we want them to keep their hands off Texas,” Preston said.
Obama visited the region in November for a memorial service for those slain at Fort Hood. He visited Austin in February 2008 for a primary debate at UT and drew thousands a year earlier at an Auditorium Shores rally.

Texas is thriving due to conservative policies implemented over the past decade under Republican leadership that have made Texas one of the greatest states in the nation to live, work and raise a family. Thanks to Republican principles of limited and transparent government, low taxes and predictable regulations, our state is well-positioned for the future and does not need more of the failed liberal agenda the Democrat majority is pushing from Washington.
