The runaway Democrats from Texas think of themselves as heroes, including one woman who compared herself to Martin Luthor King. But living it up in Washington at nice hotels and meals in some of the best restaurants is the same as being clubbed by police in Memphis or Montgomery. They now have their panties in a wad because the president refuses to meet with part-time legislators from Texas where they are the vast minority.
The democrats are expecting to remain in Washington through the first week in August when the special session is over. That is asinine since Gov Greg Abbott has already announced that he will declare a special session immediately after this one is over. And that he will continue to call special sessions until the Democrats give up and return or they are arrested and forced to return to the chamber under armed police.
Texas House Democrats fled for Washington to urge Congress and Biden to pass the “For The People Act,” which allows for many different ways in which they can cheat in elections. They just overestimate their value and self-worth. If you could buy them for what they are worth and sell them for what they think they are worth you would never need to buy a Powerball ticket ever again.
Texas state Rep. Richard Peña Raymond (D) told U.S. Rep Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas):
“He won’t meet with us on Zoom like this, and I’m trying to be tactful, but I don’t know how else to say it, man. I’m just pissed off at this point. He doesn’t give us the respect the way you have.”
State Rep. Sheryl Cole (D) absurdly proclaimed:
“All we can do is ask and push through our other congressional members. Throughout the country, we’ve received so much support that it has risen to a need for presidential attention.”
The Texas Democrats, however, have met with Vice President Kamala Harris, House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.), the No. 3 House Democrat, and other top Democratic Party leaders while in Washington. During their meeting with Harris, the vice president praised the Texas House Democrats for coming to Washington, which she called a “great sacrifice.”
“I feel very strongly about this. I think you need to center and focus all of your effort on the president,” O’Rourke told the Texas Democrats last week, according to the American-Statesman.
In fact, O’Rourke said Biden needs to be held accountable because he is “not doing what is required,” a reference to the “For The People Act,” which has stalled in Congress.
They remind me of a story my mom used to tell. A woman complained to a cop that a man was bothering her. The coop replied that the man was not even paying any attention to her to which the woman replied, “I know, and it’s really bothering me.”
