The SA Express News has a piece on P-Bush today about a visit to the Rio Grande Valley. Is P-Bush the vehicle the GOP needs to attract Latino voters? Check this from the piece:
At a reception for Bush later Thursday, R. David Guerra, president and CEO of the International Bank of Commerce in McAllen, said he is curious about Bush. “I want to hear his philosophy and try to understand him. Is he a moderate Republican, is he right-wing, old party line, or is he going to be an individual who can compete for statewide office against individuals like the Castro brothers in San Antonio (who) are very politically astute? That’s the kind of young people that are emerging in the state.
I could not agree more. The P-Bush fella needs to show some substance. Here is what he said down there:
“Who here thinks taxes are too high?” he asked as raised hands filled the room. “I would agree … we need to dramatically reform our tax code.”
That’s not what Latinos want to hear.
The other side decided to drop a bunch of dough on TV ads for today and tomorrow. What’s that all about? We had to do the same. I’ll have more to say about the race Monday.
Some would say that the 1980 ‘Stros were a pretty good team. Name the 1980 Opening Day line-up?
My God Daughter and niece Rachel is celebrating another birthday today sorta. She’s a leap year baby. Happy Birthday Rachel!
In the Chron today there is a story about the Harris County Department of Education hiring former County Commissioner Jerry Eversole to lobby. I don’t know if that is a good move. I don’t think it will last. What were they thinking?
There is a story in the Chron today about dynamic pricing at The Yard. That’s when they stick it to you when the Yankees or Red Sox come to town or for Opening Day. I don’t have a problem since it doesn’t apply to Commentary.
Terry Puhl, Craig Reynolds, Cesar Cedeno, Joe Morgan, Jose Cruz, Enos Cabell, Art Howe, Alan Ashby, and J.R. Richard were the Opening Day starters in 1980 of course.
Opening Day is 30 days away!
