Sorry, but just because your father wouldn't take care of his wife and kids is really your problem. There are people out there who had parents and a father who really loves them forever.

That was the dumbest comeback ever(ohnoyoudidnt). What does getting used by the Repubs have to do with being successful in life and expect to be given everything? You need to shut the hell up and stop making comments that have absolutely nothing to do with readers' comments, or their opinion; you moronic psuedo-intellectual.
Big cities voted White

I love Texas but it was the small towns/cities votes that accumulated more votes and decided the outcome for governor. Look at the county results in Texas. White won in Dallas,Houston,Austin,San Antonio,El Paso,Laredo,Corpus. It's all these small towns/cities that made Perry governor,not the major cities who actually understand what it going on with real issues.

Perry didn't win Dallas county, but he won every county that surrounds it: Rockwall, Denton, Collin, Ellis, Tarrant, Hunt, Kaufman and Johnson.

Perry didn't win Harris county, but he won every county that surrounds it: Waller, Montgomery, Chambers, Liberty, Ft Bend, Galveston, and Brazoria.

I can go on and on, the big cities mean nothing when the people who work in them... don't live in them! El Paso is rare, the people who work there, live there. People commute to Dallas, Houston, Austin, and San Antonio from the surrounding areas on a daily basis they know the REAL issues... that's why they live in the suburbs!

I noticed that most of the important seats in Texas were won by Republicans. And in those same races El Paso voted for the Democrat. So next time the Democrats in El Paso cry about not getting any help from Austin just look in the mirror and ask yourselves WHAT HAVE WE DONE FOR AUSTIN TO SHOW OUR SUPPORT? El Paso has been run by Democrats for the better part of 90 years and what has that gotten us? The poorest county in Texas, most high school drop outs per capita, highest unemployment and corruption in city government so bad the FBI had to conduct an investigation. Yes El Paso these are the DEMOCRATS you keep putting in office year after year after year. You have a congressman named Sylvestre Reyes who has done absolutely nothing but vote for Obama’s social programs. The DEMOCRAT straight party voters are keeping El Paso in the dark ages.

Uhh...not for long. Even GOP strategists realize that with a majority ethnic population hitting 2030-2035 Texas is getting a lot more urban and liberal.

You are so right! The same issue with New Mexico. As least Texas has a growing economy, great universities and great cities. NM is hostile to business. Has the highest rate of pregnant unwed mothers, horrible education system. WE have a saying here in NM want to keep NM poor, uneducated and pregnant... Vote Democrat.

The good news is that these 2 Latinos will bring more Latinos to the Republican Party and that my friend, is "Change you can believe in". Now, if only El paso could take their head out of the sand..........

I was hoping Rick Perry would win this race. He has done a great job in Texas! I would vote for him if he would run for president. Excellent Candidate!
