What a Joke

From RG last night:

I’ve covered Texas government for 39 years. Ive never seen it as messed up as now, from ERCOT to the PUC to Abbott to Dan Patrick. This is what happens when politics steps ahead of governing.

Gov. Greg Abbott is a joke and don’t even try to argue with me.

Abbott continues to fold under pressure.  We have seen it time and time again during the pandemic.

Now with the overcharges incurred during the Big Freeze, instead of being a leader and figuring a way out of this mess, he punts its over to the Texas Legislature.  What a coward.

The only surviving member of the Texas Public Utility Commission (PUC) said on a call that was recorded that his job was safe.  Last night, the PUC Commissioner resigned after a phone call he was on was recorded and released by Texas Monthly.  He was caught saying the overcharges would stick.  I guess that was Abbott’s plan all along.

What a joke.

A month ago, we were in the middle of the Big Freeze and some Texans froze to death.  Why? Because Abbott’s ERCOT failed us.

Abbott, GOP Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and the GOP Texas House Speaker are all over the place and going after each other on the Big Freeze Electric Grid multi-billion dollars charges.

These three couldn’t lead a clown show.

Abbott knows he has problems going into 2022.  Now he wants to make it harder for folks of color to vote.  That’s racism folks. 

I will be wearing my Beatles T-shirt with the green Apple logo today.

The Astros will be wearing green lids and green socks this evening.

The knuckleheads will be violating social distancing rules this evening on St. Patrick’s Day.

Stay safe.
