Crawford, TX mayor supports Kerry

Crawford, TX is well known as where President Bush owns his ranch.

It pisses off the press that they've had to go to the hinterlands of Texas (actually about 20 miles out of Waco) every year during the heat of the summer.

Some people actually criticize the location of Crawford in their bashing of the President -- not realizing how stupid they sound. After all, all other presidents have had "western" or "southern" or other "vacation White House" type retreats for themselves.

Now you can add the mayor the sleepy little town to the list of those who don't like President Bush.

Robert Campbell was recently named by the John Kerry campaign as one of 100 black mayors across the nation that will be supporting his candidacy for the nation's highest office.

"I don't see where I'm better off than I was four years ago," Robert Campbell said Tuesday. "I don't see where the city is any better off."
Let's see. Thousands of dollars pumped into the local economy by plenty of people -- he can start with that. Hmmmmm?

Some people simply don't think before they open their mouths to spew their hatred. They can't -- otherwise they'd realize how stupid they sound.

"I have the right to vote for who I want to be president," he said. "If some people around here don't like it, they can vote for someone else for mayor."
Campbell better be careful of what he wishes for -- he just might get it.

"I don't see where the city is any better off."

There's a useful sound bite for the Mayor's next challenger.

But really, is the federal government supposed to make us better?

I thought that the federal government's mission is to abide by the limitations clearly expressed in the constitution, thereby allowing us to be free and prosperous.

Then, we can make our own selves better as our will and our resources allow.

Lawrence: Yeah, I had that same thought.
