By J.J. Smith. ROCKWALL – Weatherford auto dealer, former Texas Secretary of State and now U.S. Senate candidate Roger Williams told the Rockwall County Republican Men’s Club today that Pres. Obama is a socialist and “the Obama economy” is “killing our country” right now.
“This man is driving a stake right through the heart of America. This man is pulling the very fiber out of this country. He’s done it in 30 months. Understand that.”
“Quit trying to figure him out. Quit trying to figure out if he’s smart enough for this job or whatever. He’s smart. He’s a socialist, okay? He knows what he’s doing, and you gotta’ understand that. It’s all by design. He is planning this. It’s all deliberate. So please understand that, ok?”
Williams, who is competing to replace Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison who is stepping down at the end of the year, said that people all across the state are saying that Texas needs to send a businessman like him to Washington D.C. to make business decisions and not political decisions.
“Small business is under attack right now. The economy is not moving well. That’s why I think we need business people up in Washington more than ever.”
He added that his basic campaign message is fourfold: 1) to cut taxes, 2) reduce government spending, 3) listen to our military generals and 4) understand the 10th Amendment: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
