Greg Abbott: Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss
One wonders how much more political mileage Abbott can extract from suing Obama, but I suppose it's probably best viewed as primary red meat. Then again, one might also wonder why Texas is spending a significant amount of its legal resources -- your tax dollars -- fighting a political fait accompli rather than something that inures to the benefit of all Texans.
When's he not litigating against the federal government, he's shooting guns and protecting our 2nd Amendment Rights.
Indeed, Abbott, though he is simply the Attorney General, is also taking credit for Texas's economic growth. I was curious as to how Abbott, the state's top lawyer, deserves credit for Texas's economic growth. Multiples calls to Abbott's press secretary went unreturned.
In any event, it is undoubtedly true that Abbott far outpaces Perry in the brains and intellectual curiosity department, even if it still tends to lead him to the same basic policy proposals. So, at least Texas won't have an overgrown frat boy who found religion to lead it. There's that.
