MONDAY: EUROPE AFTER THE VOTE IN SCOTLAND

Wendy Davis is a liberal in a very conservative state


They had "a governor debate" on Friday evening but most people in Texas were following high school football. 
The Abbott-Davis race looks more and more like a GOP landslide.  

At this point, the question is whether Miss Davis loses by 10 or 20 points!   She could get 45% if there is a heavy Democrat turnout.  

She may sink under 40% if the GOP turnout is as expected across Texas.

Frankly, Miss Davis is one very liberal candidate in a very conservative state, as Dan Balz described Texas:

"In November, Texas voters could elect the most conservative ticket of statewide officials in the state’s history.
Grass-roots activists are even more conservative, as evidenced by the state GOP platform that was produced earlier this summer."  

The bottom line is that Texas is a very conservative GOP, as Mr Balz indicates.
AG Abbott will replace Gov Perry and State Sen Patrick will replace Lt Gov Dewhurst.  

Both men are more conservative than the two men they will be replacing.

How far will this Texas conservative movement go?  Will the "Texas way" reach Washington DC?  We will learn that in 2016 if Sen Cruz and Gov Perry seek the nomination.

In the meantime, Miss Davis continues to portray the GOP as anti-woman, anti-poor and anti-just about everything.  On November, the voters are very likely to say that they are anti-Davis, or more specifically anti-liberal.

MAYBE HE WASN'T CUT OUT TO BE PRESIDENT

Back in 2008, I debated some liberal friends and questioned Mr. Obama's thin resume.  

They responded by saying that I was missing the point.  In other words, don't judge Mr. Obama's resume, but rather his unique ability to inspire and his exceptional judgment. 

I guess they were telling me that Mr. Obama was one of those exceptional human beings who rises to the occasion because he is smart and politically astute.

On election night 2008, I watched the results and prayed that my friends were right.  

By the time he walked into the Oval Office, I prayed a little more.

Six years later, I have to agree with Peggy Noonan
"His essential problem is that he has very poor judgment."
I would go farther.  He does not seem capable of learning or making those adjustments that any executive has to make. 

He seems stuck in the 1960s when it comes to the role of government. 

His foreign policy is totally absorbed with being the anti-Bush, even if it makes him look weak in the face of real threats. 

He is politically tone-deaf; he played golf minutes after talking about an American beheaded.  

The bottom line is that he wasn't cut out to be president of the U.S.  My guess is that a lot of those screaming "yes we can" agree with me.
