Texas Republican Greg Abbott might be officially running against Democrat Wendy Davis for governor, but he knows where the real opponent is.
On Sunday, Abbott released a Twitter post asking for input from supporters: “What are your top 2 reasons Texans dislike Obama (not counting Obamacare)”
The biggest challenge for that would be the 140-character limit, but Abbott’s supporters were up to it. Here are a few samples, via Twitchy. (And heads up: the last entry is tough to beat.)
Some used Obama’s own words to make the case:
@GregAbbott_TX 1)His unwanted fundamental transformation of America 2)His weakness had made America & the world more dangerous for freedom
— Ty Rogers (@CoachRogers92) March 24, 2014
Some used his record:
.@GregAbbott_TX 1. Massive new regs. & policies that kill off jobs/economic recovery. 2. Gutting defense spending in face of global crisis.
— Tom T. (@VRWCTexan) March 24, 2014
@GregAbbott_TX 1) disregard for the constitution 2) massive increase in taxes and size of government

@GregAbbott_TX He does not obey the Constitution. He tells lies & either denys it or shows no remorse when he is caught.

Some had trouble keeping it to two reasons:
@GregAbbott_TX 1. He deceives people. 2. Pro-abortion & anti-2nd amendment
— SuperMomWebb (@JoyFilledMom) March 24, 2014
@GregAbbott_TX Many reasons, but 1) Keystone XL dithering; 2) Carelessness and stupidity on border, immigration issues.

And some cited the scandals that have been all but ignored by the Obama acolytes in the nation’s newsrooms.
@GregAbbott_TX 1 Failure to lead in IRS, Benghazi, Fast&Furious scandals. 2 Inexperienced in global, economical, Executive Branch duties. — Sharon Kusmertz (@SharonKusmertz) March 24, 2014
Speaking of the IRS and Fast and Furious, here’s the response to Abbott that sums it up pretty well the arrogance of power and inherent danger of the Obama presidency’s distortion of the law for political purposes. As an indictment of the administration, it’s tough to beat.
