Hold Your Horses!

Abbott spun around again. Apparently he took and nap and woke up in a new world.

According to the Quorum Report —


n the meantime, this is the statement from the Abbott campaign“Texans for Greg Abbott today confirmed the acceptance of an invitation from KERA, NBC5/KXAS-TV, Telemundo 39 and The Dallas Morning News to participate in a statewide televised debate on September 30, 2014 at 8 p.m. This is in addition to a statewide televised debate scheduled for September 19th, 2014 in the Rio Grande Valley.

  1. Well no wonder he’s so damned dizzy! Just keep spinning.

  2. The little weasel figured out that the public saw him as chicken.

  3. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    Aw, Ms Davis has to be loving this. Her weasel opponent has broken free from his handlers and is ready to sit down and squawk st00pid.

    Whether Abbott sits or flees, his handlers apparently do not possess enough duct tape to save him from himself.

  4. OldMayfly says:

    In most every situation there is a right thing to do and a wrong thing to do.

    How could Mr. Abbott possibly know which is which? Easy–take a poll.

  5. OldMayfly says:

    Wait–I commented before I read the other comments.

    On consideration I think Polite Kool Marxist is correct. Abbott must have broken through the duct tape.

  6. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    OldMayfly, “In most every situation there is a right thing to do and a wrong thing to do.” Then enter the GOP, moral equivalency and some serious critical thinking impossible gymnastics.

    Sorry about little Gregoire’s luck that he didn’t have time to take a poll, before he was blown back in a heap of his own bile and effluence.

    “I’m in” “I’m out” “I’m in” Whatever, Greg, you tool and fiscal waste of funds. Think of all the prerogative sexist terms aimed at women, Greg. You’d need to climb up out of your st00pid to deserve half the ‘acclaim.’

  7. You-all remember Bill White, former Houston Mayor and Dem for gov?
    perry wouldn’t debate either, as I recall, and perry won. I suspect this was the initial strategy. Except Wendy ain’t like White which may have gotten his attention.
    Can’t underestimate the self-centered, racist, low-info, and/or self-serving voters still here.

  8. Tonight it’s reported that Abbott has decided not to debate Wendy. He is citing concerns over the debate format. It should be noted that his decision was reported after 7:00pm on a Friday before a major holiday. Talk about burying a story! “Friday News Dump Department”:

    WFAA: Abbott pulls out of gubernatorial debate with Davis

  9. Ms. J: Ah, yes. The ol’ Release Bad News on a Friday Before a 3-day Holiday. Except, this was before the 24/7 intertubes. He won’t get away with this–unless we go to war with Russia anytime soon.

  10. BarbinDC #9: “He won’t get away with this – unless we go to war with Russia” haha It’s always funny the way these pols think no one will notice their ridiculous decisions if they sneak the news in on a holiday weekend. We see through you, Abbott.

  11. This guy is an anti-Schrodinger’s cat, in that being observed just makes him harder to pin down. Whether he will or won’t debate is alive and dead at the same time.

    LynnN, I like the physics reference, but I would prefer the Heisenberg electron analogy.

    “. . .the more precisely the position of some particle is determined, the less precisely its momentum can be known, and vice versa.” (from Wikipedia)

    You can know where it is going but you don’t know where it is.

  14. Handlers? Nah. This guy needs a keeper, the guy who carries around the armless sweater to use in an emergency.
