Texas Progressive Alliance November 12, 2012

November 12, 2012

The Texas Progressive Alliance congratulates President Obama on his re-election as it brings you this week’s roundup.

Off the Kuff has his initial analysis of the 2012 election returns.

WCNews at Eye on Williamson tells us now that the election is over it’s time to get to work, It won’t just happen – The Democratic demographic myth in Texas.

BossKitty at TruthHugger is tickled that the Corporate Takeover Fails To Win White House.

CouldBeTrue of South Texas Chisme wonders why John Cornyn, the rapist enabler, keeps doubling down on bad ideas?

Carol Alvarado and Sylvia Garcia are squaring off to replace Mario Gallegos in the Texas Senate. PDiddie at Brains and Eggs says it will be a clash of the Houston titans (and the elite falling in to support them).

Neil at Texas Liberal took a ride to Galveston for a walk on the beach on the day after the election. The second Obama term will be nothing but lazy days on the beach for the coalition of moochers that elected him for a new term.
