As you may have heard, Pres. Obama will arrive in North Texas this afternoon to attend an evening fundraiser at the Dallas home of a wealthy Democratic supporter. Gutless Democratic candidate for guv Bill White won’t meet with Obama, likely because his advisers told him not to voluntarily create campaign fodder for shameless Republican guv Rick Perry. I’m not sure if being seen with Obama is such a problem:  Although the economy is rough all over the country, Texas has better employment numbers than many states. And I doubt if many rabid Obama haters are in play for White, anyway.

Meanwhile, Perry just released a letter asking the president to help secure the U.S.-Mexico border with “unmanned aerial drones.” Given White’s lackluster campaign performance so far, maybe Perry should be re-elected for entertainment value alone. Release the flying robots!
