Wendy Davis meets President Obama

I liked Bill White when he ran for Governor but I was very disappointed when he snubbed President Obama during the 2010 race. Greg Abbott has only surfaced from his hiding place briefly to challenge Wendy Davis to meet with President Obama. That was really very silly on Greg's part because Senator Davis has been scheduled to meet with President Obama for a while. That meeting took place today http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/10/obama-wendy-davis_n_5127973.html?utm_hp_ref=politics

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — President Barack Obama has met with Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor.

The White House says Obama visited briefly with Davis on Thursday at the LBJ Presidential Library in the state capital of Austin. That's where Obama delivered a speech commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act.

The White House isn't saying what Obama or Davis discussed.

Greg is running a really bad campaign.

1. Greg needs to run a bad campaign.

That's the only way he'll get votes.

2. Greg is making Goodhair look like a genius

Goodhair is an idiot but he ran smart campaigns aimed at his base. Goodhair took down KBH in a masterful primary campaign and then beat a well funded Democrats (Bill White) who was a great deal more intelligent compared to Goodhair. Goodhair in his Texas campaigns never made the types of mistakes that Greg is making.

Right now, Greg is in hiding. This blog is one of our DUers. http://brainsandeggs.blogspot.com/2014/04/greg-abbott-showing-up-on-milk-cartons.html

Why is Greg Abbott avoiding the media and canceling appearances?

Every campaign has occasional scheduling problems. Sometimes events or appearances have to be cancelled for a variety of legitimate reasons.

But over the last several weeks, Greg Abbott has cancelled a number of events and has rarely taken press questions at the events he does attend. Clearly something is going on inside the Abbott campaign that’s affecting his willingness to appear in public or personally answer questions from the press.

-- Abbott has refused to meet with editorial boards both during and since the Texas primary.

-- Abbott spent more than three weeks (March 6 – 29) without any public events.
During this period (March 9 – 24) he refused to personally answer any questions on equal pay, even questions regarding salaries within his own AG office.

-- Abbott canceled an April 4th scheduled and publicized address to the Texas Renewal Project, an organization of Christian pastors (I posted about this conference here).

-- Abbott declined an April 5th opportunity to address the Texas AP Managing Editors Association in Padre Island.

-- Abbott’s campaign scheduled an April 7th press conference and Abbott simply failed to appear, not even bothering to send the press a cancellation notice.

It would be easy to imply, and reasonable to assume, that Abbott's campaign is wilting under pressure – especially the ongoing bad press over his bungling of the equal pay issue and his disastrous education policy rollout.

If it is something else – campaign personnel changes, pressing official business or a family issue – then Abbott needs to be forthright and explain in some detail.

If something is seriously wrong, Greg Abbott should say so, and everyone will know what to expect going forward.

5. Is the Texas media making a point ...


to note Abbott's disappearing act? I mean the "traditional" media, not bloggers and the press of the left.

Could you imagine the headlines if Davis were to pass on Editorial Board meet ups?
