Kay Bailey Hutchison kicks off run for Texas governor

LaMARQUE, Texas – Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, kicking off a five-day Texas tour to formally announce her candidacy for governor, said today that incumbent Gov. Rick Perry has been in office too long and has subjected the state to mismanagement and petty politics.

Speaking at her old high school here, Hutchison said she would use conservative principles and sound fiscal management to lead the state through its future challenges.

“He’s a dedicated public servant,” she said of Perry. “I know he loves Texas. But now he’s trying to stay too long.”

Hutchison added that after 10 years of Perry, Texas had the highest property tax rates in the country, twice the state debt before Perry, skyrocketing college tuition and the most uninsured children in the nation.

Kay Bailey Hutchison kicks off run for Texas governor

I may not always be right, but it’s a rare occasion when I am dead wrong.

About 6 years ago I went on record saying this very thing was going to happen, I made my statement on a forum that I used to frequent, Liberty News Forum. LNF was a decent forum back in the day, even though it was dominated by a disgusting little gnome from Michigan that thought he was God’s gift to ALL things political. He went by the name of Weaselteeth. Robert Proctor, his real name, was of the opinion that if HE didn’t think of it, if HE didn’t say it, if HE didn’t support it or believe in it, then it just wasn’t so.

He called me every kind of dumb-ass hick, Texas redneck, uneducated, illiterate inbred that can be imagined. All because I dared to say that Kay Bailey Hutchison was going to retire from the U.S. Senate after this term was up so she could come home and take a run at the Texas State House and I dared to tell him that HE had no idea about Texas politics or Texas politicians.

I know that my friend Patrick Sperry of Conservative Libertarian Outpost remembers this all too well and can verify every word. I am thinking that my partner in crime, Bill of Basti Says may also be privy to the intricate details of this little matter.

Well hey, what do you know? Kay Bailey Hutchison is coming home to take a run at the Texas State House. Pretty good political prognostication for a dumb-ass hick, Texas redneck and uneducated, illiterate inbred huh? :P

The governor’s campaign spokesman, Mark Miner, distributed materials that portrayed Hutchison as a Washington insider out of touch with Texas values.

“It’s very easy to criticize after being in Washington for 16 years,” he said. “After years of bailouts, earmarks and out of control spending, she wants to come back to Texas and bring those Washington policies back here that are proven to be ineffective.” A truck bearing a huge sign the read, “Kay Bailout Express” greeted Hutchison’s motorcade.

The governor’s campaign spokesman is correct. Hutchison is a RINO Washington insider. She has NO idea what the people of Texas are up against. Case in point; Hutchison was on board with the Bush Amnesty Plan and she was pushing the Immigrant Dream Act for all it was worth SOURCE, all the while opposing border fences.

Fences make good neighbors. Apparently Sen. Hutchison forgot that Texas axiom along the way.

Hutchison voted FOR the 1st bail out debacle, the mother of all this current bail out obamanure. She was right there in lockstep with George W. Bush on the 1st bailout, as was her partner in the Senate, John Cornyn. And we all know that there’s a group here in Texas that touts Cornyn as, “A strong conservative voice in Washington.” SOURCE

Hutchison is NOT a Conservative, Texas hasn’t had a Conservative in the Senate for a long time now. Hutchison went to the RINO column several years ago and has never extricated herself from the clutches of Washington politics.

As of August 2009, Hutchison is the most senior female Republican Senator, and fifth most senior female Senator, having assumed office in June, 1993 behind Senators Barbara Mikulski (D-MD, 1987), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA, 1992), Barbara Boxer (D-CA, Jan. 1993), and Patty Murray (D-WA, Jan. 1993). SOURCE

That’s some impressive company you’re in there Sen. Hutchison, some of the most liberal libbers in the Senate. And look at the years you and your cohorts have served in the Senate. Yet you have the GALL to say that Rick Perry has served for too long as Governor of Texas?

Even if Rick Perry serves another FULL term, he won’t have been Governor then for as long as YOU have been a Senator now.

She even called for term limits for the office of governor.

“We need results, not politics,” she said. “And that starts with term limits for Texas governor. … We can’t afford 14 years of one person appointing every state board, agency and commission.”

Sen. Hutchison, you have just been outed for the disgusting Washington HYPOCRITE that you really are! You have been in the U.S. Senate for 16 years, you really need to choose your words more carefully Senator, there are MANY of us watching you even more closely now than in the past!

1993–1994 prosecution:
Shortly after the special election victory, Travis County authorities, led by Democratic district attorney Ronnie Earle, raided Hutchison’s offices at the State Treasury looking for proof of allegations that Hutchison used state equipment and employees on state time to help with her campaign. She was indicted by a grand jury in September 1993 for official misconduct and records tampering.

A lot of folks may try to use this indictment against Hutchison. In the spirit of fair and balanced, I won’t. Ronnie Earle is a Democratic HACK that is better suited to chasing ambulances than he is to being a District Attorney. I don’t say this off the cuff, Earle will attempt to prosecute ANY Republican in Texas if he even remotely imagines that there is a charge to be had. In Texas speak, Ronnie Earle needs a good ol’ fashioned ass whoopin’

Hutchison said the state was at a critical juncture and it needed better leadership to meet the challenges on the horizon.

Sen. Hutchison is right, we DO need better leadership. Rick Perry may not be perfect, but he’s far and away better for Texas than Kay Bailey Hutchison. Rick Perry is not, to the best of my knowledge, a hypocrite. Rick Perry turned down federal stimulus money offered by Congress and President Barack Obama. Hutchison criticizes him for it too. As I said, Hutchison, RINO and Washington insider, feeding at the PUBLIC trough!

Rick Perry may have made a few mistakes during his time as Texas Governor. Find me ANY elected official that hasn’t made a few mistakes and I’ll show you an elected official that hasn’t done ANY work, of ANY kind, at ANY time.

“To make a political point, we turned down half a billion in federal money, sacrificed it to other states, and now we’re borrowing three times as much and sticking Texas businesses with the tab,” she said.

“That’s not conservative. That’s irresponsible. We can do better.”

No Senator, that IS Conservative, and you apparently don’t have a clue as to the definition of the word conservative. Texas IS borrowing, and paying back, that is called Doing Business. That half a billion dollars was tax money taken from the American people, and yes, it was being given back to the American people, in a robbing Peter to pay Paul ponzi scheme. I personally applaud Rick Perry for turning down payoffs offered by the spawn of Satan that currently inhabits the Oval Office.

Sen. Hutchison is not evil, but in MY opinion, she is WRONG for Texas. She is long past her time of serious effectiveness in the Senate, and she knows it. Otherwise, WHY is she coming home to run for Governor? And as much as I honestly believe that Hutchison needs to retire from the Senate, I also honestly believe that she will be a disaster if the people of Texas fall for her RINO speeches and hypocritical words and elect her Governor.

    Okay, IMNSHO, if Ms. Rino wanted to do the best she can for Texas she would be fighting “The One”, “Stretch Polosi”, and Reid. No trying to get out of the senate before she has to actually vote on Obamacare.

    One of my biggest concerns with Perry is his seemingly large disinterest in protecting Texas from illegals. There is a single thing he could do right now to get my support. Okay, really two.

    1) Put the guard on our Border
    2) Road trip, visit the like of Farmers Branch and Irving and commit his support to then, and visit cities the like of Houston and Austin (short trip) and threaten a reduction in state grants IF they continue with their sanctuary city ways.

    I think he was somewhat learned his lesson the the tollways and Guarysil. He should have never tried that sh*t in the first place though. Sadly, the TTC is still not completely dead!

    But that’s just me.

    To put the Guard on the border he has to have a declared emergency and if the BS currently taking place on the border isn’t an emergency, I don’t know what is…

    BUT, someone has to PAY for that Guard activation, and in most cases, I am thinking they try and fall back on federal disaster funds… Obama IS the disaster regarding the border, as was Bush and EVERY American president for many years past…

    One thing is certain, KBH won’t put anything on the border other than a revolving door…

  3. comment number 3 by: Kate

    Seems that 2010 is going to be REAL interesting country wide. I use to have a bit of respect for KBH, but she’s obviously been up there in the swamp way too long to know is actually needed. Y’all have my empathy.

    Why can’t that over the hill senile bitch read her tea leaves, or at least the overwhelming popularity and support for Rick Perry.

    Her money contributors must be on drugs not to see this.

    She will lose big-time,,,actually be humiliated at the polls.
    Not even close.

    But, what do I know? I will never vote for her or any of her other types.
    Rick Perry will be elected again, in a landslide!

    Perry is a good governor. He just returned from Israel where he was reviewing the security fence the Israelis built and wondering how to implement it in Texas.

    Your state isn’t in bankruptcy, your schools are still good, and God loves Texans.

    Hutchinson is a bad idea for Texas.

    Fred thank you, I was talking to some friends this weekend who are going to support Rino Hutchinson and I needed more ammo in my argument. Thanks.

  7. comment number 7 by: GM Roper

    Fred old top, you and I don’t always agree on everything, but I will be DAMNED If I vote to put a Big Hair in for Governor Good Hair.

    I didn’t vote for KBH the last time she ran for the Senate either. Seems to me that if I want a democrat in the office, I’d just as soon vote for a Democrat if you get my drift.

    Cheers and count me as a vote for Rick “Good Hair” Perry

  8. comment number 8 by: Patrick Sperry

    *moves on in, does the secret wiggle*

    I liked Weaselteeth, I mean ? After all, he acted like the high handed slope heads that would think they were flanking when in fact they ran straight into kill zones. But, I digress.

    Is Perry “perfect?” Nope, and nobody is. He beats the hell out of KBH though, in my opinion. Texas is a great place and Texas grows two kinds of people, at least that is what Texan’s have told me since I was a kid. The very best, and the very worst. With very few in between. Take your pick as far as the two people in this discussion goes. I’ll side with Fred and that should come as no surprise to anyone with an I.Q. above room temperature.

    Now I have to figure out where to bury my Mother, she passed, and I’m thinking West Texas, as in Camp Pendleton, or near Amarillo…
    Take care all, and God Bless…

    My condolences to you Mr. Sperry and your family.

    I’ve only met one kind of Texan in my travels: The good, kind, decent, God-fearing kind. I didn’t know any other kind existed. I thought these people were the reason God loves Texas and Texans so much.

    Me either, it’s amazing the things you learn about yourself from the innerwebs huh?? :?

  13. comment number 13 by: Vincent

    Good point! Actually, I think that KBH is Perry’s best shot at reelection.
    Even if I don’t agree with all that he does, we could have it a lot worse.
    As for Texans, I’d say we are either the very best or the very meanest. Depends on your idea of worst, I guess.

    What the hell is up with these gay looking gravatars? My good old lone star shows up elsewhere.
