The View from My Window: Corpus Christi

-

This morning I left Washington Dulles, and it was about 14 degrees outside.
Now I’m in Corpus Christi, Texas planning to speak tonight and tomorrow to groups organized by the World Affairs Council of South Texas/Corpus Christi and Texas A&M University Corpus Christi.
It’s 73 degrees outside. Really.
Going home again will be very hard to do (unless I’m lured back with a good cocktail party. . .just ribbing some of my anti-cocktail party fans)

    With a couple of hundred thousand troops supposedly slated for return, has anyone considered the ramifications of not being able to provide jobs for them in the civilian sector?
    My bet? Obama is going to think of ways to keep them employed in the military sector. That means a far greater escalation in Afghanistan than what is being admitted, as well as a greater contingent remaining in Iraq than is currently being proposed. I think the justification for this will soon be inflicted on the American populace, in the form of a pivotal event; another “trifecta”.

    Texas has given America both some of the best and some of the worst, of course. And the SBs are way, way, way too influential in Texas politics. But a state that could give us Ann Richards, and could be where Molly Ivins grew up and flourished as a journalist, should not be dismissed out of hand. Besides, mirroring California, Texas will be Democratic again within a couple of election cycles. Why do you think Republicans despise Mexican immigrants, even if some of their own are?

    Thanks so much for speaking with us today! We love the Coastal Bend of Texas too and hope you will visit us again soon.
    Your information was absolutely dead on in my book. Our country needs out-spoken voices like yours who tell the truth about what is really going on in Washington as well as globally.

    Honey, it may be 73 degrees WEATHER temperature outside in Corpus Christi, but the BRAIN temperature is around – 45.
    [I grew up in Houston and wouldn’t wish TX on ANYONE with a brain.]

    I attended your speech at The World Affairs Council of South Texas in Corpus Christi, Texas and I must say that I was intrigued. I am a journalism student about to transfer out of Corpus Christi and I will be reading your blog as part of my daily dose of news and gossip. Thanks for making a stop here in the deep South!

    Ron Paul was the last best hope for the republicrats…but now he has joined the Limbaugh admiration club and refuses to say if Limbaugh is the leader of the GOP…He could not name a leader!
    His actions certainly show the demise of the evangelicrats/republicrats (now the party of the “south) as a viable politial party…and that is a shame for America.
