Texas blog roundup for the week of November 26

The Texas Progressive Alliance is rested and ready after the holiday weekend as it brings you this week’s roundup.

Off the Kuff notes that for the second election in a row, the city of Houston voted 61% for President Obama. Keep that in mind the next time someone tries to tell you that Texas is Austin surrounded by a bunch of Republicans.

Success for Democrats in Williamson County has been few and far between in recent years, and has only come through hard work. WCNews at Eye on Williamson points out that little has changed, It won’t just happen…(continued).

Barack Obama’s re-election to the presidency, just as his first election, is defined in large measure by the pathetic quality of his competition. PDiddie at Brains and Eggs observes that while Republicans have only themselves to blame for their circumstances, maybe it’s time for the victors to help them work through their bitterness.

BossKitty at TruthHugger believes it’s time to work on those we elected, to legislate responsible actions and stop polluting America’s water. Water – Supply and Demand, Cause and Effect.

CouldBeTrue of South Texas Chisme notes that establishment Republicans hate their base. I can understand that.

Neil at Texas Liberal said that the table of self-respect is always set. The question is will people show up?

Dallas County Democrats have dominated county government since 2006, and won every county-wide race a Democrat ran in since 2004. (2010 was rough in that the Republican wave took back several House District seats and redistricting was an effective factor in keeping those seats.) Obama received just short of the 57% he earned in 2008
