Craig James for Senate: To Know Him Is to Not Like Him, Polls Say

(Don't) get to know me!!!
A new poll for Texas's open U.S. Senate seat has bad news for Houston's Craig James, former SMU star and ESPN analyst.

Most people don't know the guy. Those that do, don't like him.

James had the biggest gap between "favorable" and "unfavorable" ratings, a whopping 15 percent.

Two-thirds of those polled by Public Policy Polling had no opinion on James, but 24 percent had an "unfavorable" opinion of him, with just nine percent "favorable."

In other news, 24 percent of the people polled watch ESPN and nine percent do not, we're guessing.

Good news for James, though: In the highly unlikely event he wins the GOP nod, he's favored over any of the Democratic candidates.

AS they say in Texas- "the sun does not shine on the same dog's behind all the time"-- I think Craig now knows what the Texas people think of him-- enjoy you time alone with your few friends.

What about the 5 hookers he killed while attending SMU?

He has taken 2 major university football programs down in his quest for fortune, what would he be willing to do with the power of being a senator?

I know him, and I like him very much.

This campaign to trash him has been disgraceful, and it makes me wonder if any of these Tech people who hate him so much for standing up for his son have enough time in the week to squeeze in 40 hours of work.

Anyone who knows Craig knows he's a fun, engaging, and smart guy who has deep moral convictions and a desire to fix what's wrong with this country.  He's a good guy and this image of him as perpetuated by this character assassination campaign if deeply unfair.

But, that's politics, and I suppose one could surmise from all this that the worst possible place from which to launch a political career is a job commenting on college sports.  Over the years his job has put him in the position of saying critical things about UT, A&M, Tech, TCU, and even his alma mater SMU.  In Texas I suppose that's an unforgiveable sin, but it was just his job to say what he believed about college football programs.  I suppose loyal alums remember the criticism and not the praise that he has dished out over the years.

I'm still concerned about the posibility that Craig James killed 5 hookers while at SMU.

My concern is the five dead hookers up in Arlington.  He's not yet fully explained that to my complete satisfaction.

Maybe he can have his whiny son as his campaign manager which would certainly insure a resounding defeat.

Craig (sorry, i mean 'Bob') whenever you have to listen or see or read about Craig James' blowhardiness, all you see a sense of entitlement, detachment from reality and corruption. These are his values. People know this about you (I mean people know this about about Craig James). So, yes, imagine if this coward's whiny womanly son was ever drafted...into the Army and not the NFL...you'd surly see Mr. America be the true rich coward that he is and work to get his son out of that particular assignment. Craig James thinks that politics will make him more rich. He's a corrupt good for nothing but himself

Hey, Bob, what's it like to be on the Speath payroll? I hear she has quite a few of you!
