“All of them (mayoral candidates) have changed their positions as time passes. Like with any other political campaign, people are going to promise a lot, and then in the end they are going to do what they feel is correct.

Give it to HBAD for being a badarse! HBAD handed H-Town’s Mayor a rebuke last night by endorsing John Sharp for U.S. Senator – ouch! I don’t know about that. Maybe they are not happy that they don’t have a Discovery Green in the ‘hood. Commentary heard that in order to vote at last night’s meeting, you had to show a photo ID – huh! I thought Dems were against voter ID!

Commentary has to hand it to Guv Dude for playing his Latino politics. He put a local wise Latina on the Texas Supreme Court yesterday.

After all, Lone Star State Dems aren’t doing a darn thing to engage the Latino vote.
