Sorry Mr. President, my schedule is full

Signs accumulate that the President is becoming political kryptonite for Democrat candidates.

August 9th huh? Let me check my calendar. Oh darn the luck Mr. President, I'm going to be making a campaign stop at the Johnson County Fair. My schedule is really packed right now, but maybe we can do lunch in...say...mid November.

There is something funny going on in Texas. Only last year Bill White paid for an ad featuring a picture of himself and Barack Obama trumpeting the slogan "The Dream, The Hope, The Change." This year the Democrat candidate for governor is looking to distance himself from an increasingly unpopular president.

The Dallas Morning News quotes White who said "I was in the oil and gas business when he was a community organizer." The gubernatorial hopeful added.

"There are some people, including me, who believe that the president is spending a lot more money than we're taking in, is spending too much money in Washington," White said in an interview.


"I don't believe in borrowing so much money. When I served as the chief operating officer of a federal department, I cut the budget. And now you see the budgets of other Cabinet departments go up."

Having witnessed the defeat of fellow Democrats who accepted Mr. Obama's assistance during their campaigns, White has turned tail and run from the president's toxic embrace. Rather than attend fundraisers on August 9th in Houston and Austin with Mr. Obama, Bill White will be shaking hands and spinning tales of fiscal responsibility at the Johnson County Fair.

In explaining his decision not to attend the upcoming fundraisers with the president White said "I don't appear with a lot of people who come through the state of Texas." In doing some fact checking, I found a number of people who are willing to testify under oath that during recent trips to Texas the Democrat candidate for governor did not in fact appear with them at any time.
