Subject: Obama's three devastating numbers


Why has Obama had a temporary change of heart about Texas? On Friday, he will hold his nose and fly to Houston to pick up some campaign checks from his liberal cohorts.

We don’t know how much money he plans to rake in for his $1 billion re-election machine on Friday. But Texans know three numbers that Obama would like to forget:

1. $15.5 trillion in national debt

2. $4.50 per gallon gasoline

3. 1.2 million fewer jobs since Obama took office

It’s no secret that Obama dislikes Texas. His administration has been on a blatant mission to fight Texas’ conservative policies. He’s singled out our Voter I.D. law, attempted to seize our air permitting through the EPA, and repeatedly denied our request for more border patrol agents.

And those destructive attacks are extracurricular to Obama’s day-to-day itinerary of killing Texas jobs through the unconstitutional budget nightmare known as Obamacare and his refusal to allow the Keystone XL Pipeline.

Obama may despise the Texas way of balanced budgets, spending cuts, tax cuts, and limited government that Texans have championed under Lt. Gov. Dewhurst’s leadership. Obama may prefer the Washington way that gave us the three devastating numbers.

Texas slashed $14 billion in state spending last year because David Dewhurst prioritized spending on public education and balanced the budget—without raising taxes—while protecting $6 billion in our state’s Rainy Day Fund.

When liberals demanded the Washington approach of spending all the money and raising taxes, David said “NOT IN TEXAS!” It's that same conservative leadership that David will take to Washington.

We need someone that will repeal Obamacare. We need someone who will cut the federal government’s out-of-control spending. We need someone that will balance the budget like David has done in Texas.

Watch the video outlining the failed Obama agenda, and volunteer for David’s campaign. We’ve got to stop Obama’s growing unemployment, debt, and gas prices.
